Notice to all users of the Holodeck:

There are safety protocols in place that cannot be deactivated without the approval of two commanding officers or the captain to protect users of the Holodeck from potential harm. However, every time the Holodeck is ever used in a nontrivial manner, no matter what the safety protocols say, the Holodeck turns into a deathtrap.

Unless you believe yourself to be adept at constructing a forcefield from your communicator and 19th century Earth tools, or you're at the very least not wearing a red shirt, you are strongly advised not to attempt to use the Holodeck until a designer comes up with a safety protocol that doesn't kill you whenever somebody looks at it funny. Even when you're not on the holodeck. Or in the same quadrant. Or time period.

In fact, if you are wearing a red shirt, Starfleet may not be the job for you

Where am I!?

So what if I haven't posted in a while? You think it's easy to come up with something to write about? I haven't actually done anything in so long, it seems silly to write about... nothing. Oh, whoopdydoo, I bought clothes. Yay. Oh joy, I helped my mom put a bike rack on her car. What fun. So I planted C4 explosives on the governors mansion and it's going to explode in a few hours. Wowie.

See? Nothing interesting.

Here I am

I've moved back to reality, finally. That is, I don't live on campus any more. I live in a "real" house, now. Now I just have to hope they don't forget that I'm working at my job at my job. Crossing my fingers.

File sizes

I just noticed this today. Looking at (almost) any file in Windows explorer shows two non-corresponding file-sizes, one always exactly 1 KB larger than the other, and it's not disk size, either. Look:

Differing file sizes

For smaller files, it shows a more accurate file size at the bottom, but for files of at least 100 KB it just seems to... subtract one. (Presumably it's just taking the INT value of the filesize when it's 3 digits or longer at the bottom, and rounding up to the next whole KB up above, but why use different techniques?)

Job Is Good

Well, I know what I'm doing this Summer. Which is good, because it's less than three days away. I've "got" a job right now, as in, they will be sending me a form to fill out to actually get me the job. But in essence, I finally have it. Which is good. Blue wizard needs job badly.

Packing is another problem.

So, school is out, and only finals remain. We shall see if I die of a heart attack before or after I find out whether I can graduate on time.
