So.. my sister decided to be thoughtful and give her boyfriend in Germany the board game 'Risk'. We all realized that we did not own Risk, and that Risk was a awesome, thus we bought ourselves a copy as well. However, it turns out that her boyfriend already owns a copy of risk. However, I think he might own just the German version.. So it might be kind of cool to give him the American one anyway. In any event, it looks like we might be stuck with two of the same version of Risk.. maybe. In that case we will just sell the other copy, or give it to someone else. Or whatever.
My cluster is going along all right I guess. I have 8 computers in my room.. one of them I will not be using for the cluster. And one of them doesn't work apparently. I am going to open it up today and see if everything is connected properly, but it could be that a part or more is non-operational due to abuse.. It looks like it's seen better days. Right now I'm using a slightly older version of redhat linux for my slave nodes... or at least some of them.. Some of them I haven't gotten around to tinkering with too much. Also, it seems I do not have enough ethernet cables or ethernet ports to connect all of them.. But that shouldn't be an issue for too much longer. The funny thing is, due to the age of most of the systems, even if all hooked up.. The cluster's power equates to about the same as this laptop's.. lol. I know this isn't that interesting yet.. but hopefully it will as this continues to develop.
I think I'll mention that I've been making an effort to get in shape. I've been exercising and counting calories and all that jazz. Yeah.
Also, as some of you may know.. My hard drive was recently wiped due to me attempting a partition at 3 in the morning. I know this was silly of me. It wasn't that hard to load everything up again, but some very important projects died.. Such as my major flash projects, a couple novels I was working on, and over a gig of art I made.. And at this point it isn't possible to recover it ever again. I've gotten back to working on projects, despite the discouragement.. (Man, I should have backed up my stuff.. T_T).
I've started on another flash RPG that has about the same kind of programming as the last one, only I've decided this one isn't about gangsters. Although it will be possible to attain a gang in it.. I've also toned down the seriousness considerably in terms of art direction and story. Also, I re-started my novels..etc etc.
Lastly, I have plans to move back to Washington or to Alabama at some point in the future. Maybe the not-so-distant future. But first I'd like a driver's license and a car that won't die on a road trip to those places. Taking a plane, bus, or train isn't much of an option because of my computers.. lol. Also, kudos to you if you actually read this far . Huzzah.
