No Title

Today on WREK since it is the last day of finals and getting on to the
semester break, they have been running automation all afternoon. I’ve
heard a number of songs that I put in there, including “Gravedigger”
by my friends Jonny X and the Groadies, “Monkey Vs. Robot” by James
Kochalka Superstar, and right now Sonic Youth’s “Mary Christ” is
playing. Damn I love that song – I stuck it in as an oldie just
because it makes me jump up and down when I hear it.

I think yesterday was the most I ever put in a day’s worth of weblog,
even if you correct for the large table of search engine stuff. Just
how it fell, I guess.

I saw a number of my hits also involved “Open COLA”. I had e-mailed
their support after the first time they changed their active directory
structure such that you had to redo all the directories and said that
if that happened again, I was going to cease using the beta. I spent
several hours setting up those directories with meaningful stuff,
trying to use this thing like I would in real life. To periodically
have that work go “Poof! Sorry, we changed stuff so do all that
again!” is not something I’m willing to have happen to me over and
over. I played with it for about 5 minutes last night, but avoided
getting sucked back into that trap. Sorry guys, your thing is super
cool but I don’t have the time to burn on you if you’re going to keep
playing this way.
