Boredom

Posted in Geekery on September 21st, 2004

Few things drive me more batty than boredom. Here’s some of the results of my attempt to thwart it:

Friday the 17th, I received 161 hits, most of them in the 7am hour. No idea why, I haven’t downloaded the raw logs yet. The previous Wednesday, however, I got hardly anything. I am still baffled about why nobody ever posts a comment to this blog with all the traffic it gets.

Ego-surfing can find some strange things indeed – my post regarding swapping out washing machines showed up on an appliances website. Posts I made to a play-by-post Cyberpunk game in 2001 still show up. The scary thing is, someone has taken the time to condense all of those posts into a sort of narrative, proving that there are folks out there who outstrip my nerdiness.

But not by much. I spent 20 minutes doing algebra in an effort to plan the improvements to an RPG character. And let’s face it – I did go ego-surfing, after all. In my garage. On a wireless laptop. That I left running all day so I wouldn’t have to wait for it to boot.

I lose 9 out of 10 games of solitaire, and 5 out of 7 games of mahjong. I do pretty good at Klickety, though.

While installing a wireless network for a customer this morning, I realized that every time I have done this, I have found an unprotected wireless network nearby. Usually, it’s a Linksys. And people wonder how identity theft can be so easy.

Which reminds me, I need to call that cop back.

And get some sleep.
