I'm Sick... Again.

This is the third time this year I've been sick. I've missed two days of work already. I think it's a sinus infection. I've never been so congested, and the pseudophedrine isn't helping at all. My fever is down today (101.4 yesterday, 100.0 today), so I think I'm starting to improve. I really don't like missing work.

I'm a Winner!

When I was researching my PC case modding project (still underway), I came across a site that makes some nifty cases. They were having a design contest for their case badges. I put something together, and wouldn't you know it, they awarded me the 1st prize. So now I'm getting a brand new case with all the goodies... for free! And who doesn't need a case with 3 120mm fans built into it? Total airflow: 220 ft3/min.

This case will be much better for my new machine, and the pretty case I've been working on will most likely become the new Homer. You see, all the computers on our LAN are named after Simpsons characters. The Dell I use is "Burns", the one at Julie's desk is "Homer", and the downstairs machine is "Flanders". The plan I have now is to build a brand new machine, move Burns over to Julie's desk, and Homer downstairs. Flanders will be retired. It's a Cyrix. I don't know what I'm going to name the new one. I'm considering "Snake". Not sure yet though. Maybe I'll put it up to a vote when it comes time to decide.

Damn you, Jerri

Those Ogakors are wise. They're not about to give up their tribal alliance, even if it means putting up with Jerri the Rice-Nazi for 12 more days. This makes the rest of the show a little predictable. They're going to pick off the rest of Kucha, starting with Nick, then Elisabeth, then Rodger (assuming he doesn't win ammunity as the last Kucha member). Then things will get dirty. Colby, Keith and Tina will instantly turn against Jerri, then Amber. My prediction... Colby leaves with the $1 million, though Tina and Kieth also have a good chance of surviving.

The saddest part about this whole situation is we have to say goodbye to Rodger and Elisabeth soon. She's such a sweetie.
