Also, since we didn't end up moving which is going to save me a bunch of money in paying a new rent deposit and moving costs I decided I'd spend some of that money to upgrade my computer's sound stuff. Ended up getting this, these, and this for a mic.



OMG... I want your sound card...

I love me some fried food. I eat friend food all the time and I'm still super skinny. I can eat all the friend chicken and other unhealthy foods never getting fat.:D

Yeah it's kind of similar stuff to what I was doing before, this place is kind of a startup company that makes casino type games for Facebook and soon iOS; they use HaXe as their language instead of AS3 but those really aren't all that different and I've used HaXe a bit in the past, and the stuff for iOS is obviously going to be Obj-C/C++.

And yeah, well originally I was supposed to start this week, but they extended that to next week because I wanted to see if I could find a closer place for me and my roommate since right now the commute to my job on public transit plus a bike ride is about an hour and ten minutes one way. But rent prices for the city and peninsula are off the hook (basically to get a decent 2BR place right now in a location where we could continue without owning a car would be like $3000+ which is almost double what we pay right now). So ultimately I decided we were better off with cheaper rent and me just learning to deal with the commute, we'll keep our eyes open and see if rent comes down but right now it doesn't really make sense to move. So yeah since I told them I didn't really need additional time since we decided not to move they said I could possibly start this week, but they had to wait for my PC to come in and they still aren't sure if it will be in tomorrow, but even if it isn't I'm sure there will be HR stuff I'll have to do.

I went into the office the other day to just kind of get a feel for the commute and especially the biking portion since I just got a bike and I haven't ridden one since like middle school, haha. But I got to meet some guys I didn't meet in my interview and everyone was super nice, and there is one guy working there who I worked with at my previous job in the San Francisco Bay Area, so it's cool being able to work with him again.

I definitely couldn't deal with that commute. I guess on public transit you can kind of turn your brain off.

That is some crazy audio equipment.

Thanks Hank. :)

I definitely couldn't deal with that commute. I guess on public transit you can kind of turn your brain off.


Yeah that's why I thought I'd give it a go, it wasn't too awful with something to do, although I end up having to stand for around the first 1/4 of the trip due to having the bicycle and there being a lot of people commuting in from East Bay to SF (after the main city stops though it really thins out and it's easy to sit while supporting the bike). I'm going to get a laptop for work though so I'm probably going to end up seeing if I can do work going to and from work and then leave a bit earlier than I typically would as well.

That is some crazy audio equipment.


Yeah, the sound card should be coming tomorrow and that should be a fairly quick install. But I already have the headphones so I've been trying them out a bit just to make sure that they don't bother my ears, since that is my biggest issue with a lot of headphones since they can feel immensely painful for glasses wearers. But I found a decent amount of people posting on the internet that they were glasses wearers and found them comfortable. Seem fairly comfy so far. Fairly sure the balance is way off on them right now since I'm just running them through the headphone jack on my speakers and I think they actually need an amp to have enough power to drive them correctly. But people were saying that the amp on the Essence STX should be fine for that (although I then came across all kinds of people talking about how some really expensive stand alone amps are way better than a sound card, haha). Even without the sound card though it's crazy listening to some of the stuff you can hear in live recordings with these, haha.

I had a job offer in Chicago, 1 hour drive, hour train ride, work 4 hours, hour train ride back, hour drive back. 4 hours commute every day. Considered it, but I'd have to get up at 4 AM every day and spend so much in gas and train fare that it wouldn't even be worth it.

It's great to know kids these days are going to be able to see what happened to the N-Gage.

Also, I don't think I ever did so, but thanks everyone in here that helped get me into PC gaming. It's probably the best thing you guys have ever convinced me to do. Goddammit, I love Steam so fucking much.

I have a funny story for all of you...

Picked up a girl at work the other day (my sales job, not teaching haha)... told her "if you need anything else, feel free to let me know" and gave her my cell phone #....

Texts me 20 minutes later, small talk, all that good stuff, comes on sorta strong but she's an 8/10 so I'm okay with that.

Asks me to hangout, then tells me "to be honest I'm seeing someone but that isn't going anywhere and it isn't going to last".... I bail on the plans, but she convinces just to meet up for dinner...

I go to dinner, things go great, I'm glad I didn't bail.... we continue to chat everyday (she seems really into it, and at this point I'm cautiously optimistic) via text but I'm obviously really busy between both jobs and she works 2 jobs and goes to school so we make plans to hangout this weekend (Sunday, because she is away at school M-F).....

I go out tonight (a weeknight, Thursday) after work with all my work friends, we go to a local spot.... after hanging there for a few hours, in walks 8/10 girl with some random dude, who happens to be friends with one of the guys I'm with! Me and the chick share a super awkward look and don't even say hi to each other (obviously I was lied to so I feel weird about the whole thing)....

I ain't even mad, just not sure why she convinced me to hangout in the first place.....

DUDE should have capitalized on that.

"THIS IS MY HANG OUT SPOT! WHO SAID YOU CAN STALK ME HERE?!"

of course you say it with a smile :D

Love it when shit like that happens. What will you do now, see her again, or just totally bail? I'd most likely bail, but that's me.

I went on a date last summer and walked right past another chick I was talking with at the time. She recognized me, I didn't even see her. Didn't work out with either, so oh well. But still, hate juggling women, so I don't do it.

I'll never talk to her again. She wasn't even a redhead, after all. She's lucky she even scored the free meal out of me.

9+/10 redhead or you get no effort from me.
