Business trip ()

by fluffy at 11:35 PM
I'm going to be in Palo Alto on business from Sunday the 30th 6th of November thru Wednesday the whateverth. Or maybe later. For anyone who wants to meet up. I believe Sunday's already spoken for and on both Monday and Tuesday I'd rather just stick in the Palo Alto area rather than heading up to San Francisco, though.

Superman has a drug problem ()

by fluffy at 8:11 AM
I was up a bit early and so I decided to watch cartoons. The cartoon which came up was some version of Superman, except Superman's voice was that of Brock's (from Venture Bros.). He was building a flying cage platform to capture the active-resistance hippie robot drones (with laser beams) which were about to wreak havoc on Republican City, with the assistance of about 12 army men who he had flown up to the flying platform personally. In some brilliant move, Superman decided that sitting inside the cage trap was the best place for him and the army men when the robot drones arrived, and started shooting at everything.

"Oh no, now I'm going to be depressed," said Superman. "I should fax in a prescription with my SUPER FAX POWERS." He closed his eyes and put his fingers to his temples, and Aquaman-style 'thought waves' came out. Then the robot drones were in the cage and powering up to shoot everything, and he flew out the escape hatch above.

"Hey, wait!!!" shouted an army man.

I ♥ We ♥ Katamari ()

by fluffy at 3:25 PM
So, my copy of We ♥ Katamari finally arrived yesterday, though I didn't get a chance to play it until today.

It's fun!

Yay, they've shipped! ()

by fluffy at 9:48 PM
Estimated delivery: Oct 18, 2005
Shipping weight: 90.0 lbs

By FedEx. Jeeze, no wonder it cost $90.

Perry's probably going to shit a brick when the delivery guy shows up with two 3'x3'x8" (or perhaps larger) 45-pound boxes. I should warn him.

Service ()

by fluffy at 9:26 PM
So, my Cobalt Flux pads still haven't arrived. I was starting to get a bit worried, so I sent off this friendly email:
Hi, my pads have been waiting to be shipped for over a week now (they were in "awaiting shipping" for a while, and now they're just "pending")... what's going on with them?
So I just got (at 9:30 PM, on Wednesday, which is of course 10:30 PM in Utah where Cobalt Flux is based), this email back:
What happened is that one of our suppliers came in two weeks late with a shipment, so platforms that were on schedule suddenly got pushed back a week. Anyway, we're staying late nights to finish the whole queue, and all orders should be going out within the next two to three business days. So your pad should hit you early next week. Sorry about the delay.
Yay dedication!

Pretty good monitor speakers (, )

by fluffy at 7:48 PM
So, if you've been paying attention to the Mighty Blogosphere, you may have heard about the Sonic Impact Portable T-Amp, which a bunch of audiophiles have been raving about as being an amazingly good amp for only $30. I figured I'd give it a shot. I also bought a pair of Mission m31i speakers (which are also available in a cherry finish), as I'm still quite happy with the pair of Mission 731is I have in my bedroom (formerly the fronts on my main audio system, replaced with a set of Athena AS-B2 fronts, AS-B1 rears, and an AS-C1 center).

Craig raises an interesting point ()

by fluffy at 11:50 PM
Where do I find the time?

(answer: not watching TV or playing video games or going out or sleeping.)

On that note I also did a song about Bjam's dad for the same thing.
