OK, I’ve put this off long enough.

Well, I’ve successfully delayed in writing this ling enough.
If you didn’t know, I’m in miluim (mandatory military reserve duty).
It’s sucking pretty bad. I hope to post a much longer account over the next couple of days. I tried writing it up on my Palm, and got fairly far, but my palm battery kept running out. I’m going to conserve the battery by not using it at all, and beam any text file over t the palm, and post it that way via cellular connection.
I had a late lunch with Shannon today, the day I snuck out of the base for 24 hours, and we had a nice time together.
My miluim is over on Jan 27th, and she’s leaving to the USA for 2 weeks on the 25th, so if I don’t get out to see her again, I’m gonna be really bummed.
On a brighter note, she’s sending me off with chocolates and a logic puzzle. Woohoo!
I’m also bringing a bunch of web development stuff with me, in hopes that I get bored enough that I’ll actually set up a Perl & Web environment and try playing with some scripts and get a feel for yet another language. I don’t program, but I like to know how things work. So essentially, I can program, once I’ve seen that it can be done elsewhere, it’s just a matter of applying the same type of logic.
I spoke with , who might be able to assist with some Perl ideas I had, and maybe just maybe learn some more than I already don’t know. 🙂
Anyways, I have a lot more to write, and now isn’t the time for it yet.

On another note, I did a useless meme here:

ACHTUNG!
miketheman may actually be a spider-human hybrid

    Sorry you’re not enjoying miluim. Whenever I have a mindless job, I sort of use my extra brainpower creatively.

    Where will Shannon be going? Anywhere near me?

    I am so glad I didn’t do army sometimes. Seems like a drag…

    I wouldn’t trade the military experiences that I had for anything. It was a really interesting anthropological study.
    Besides, if I had to waste 3 years, I wasted them well. It’s the after-effects that are a bitch.

    Well, I’m taking my laptop back with me so I can do some interesting things while there.
    Hopefully I’ll be able to create something while I’m at it.
    Shannon’s heading to NY, where a lot of universities have administrative offices for admissions purposes.
