This week I got to spend a couple of days (well, an evening and a couple of nights) hanging out with Xk, BMF, KS and Ras during my stay in Vegas for the NAB show.

Now I'm sitting at the airport wishing I had the foresight to try getting work to cover me at the hotel for another day or two. It was too nice being able to take a break from business (and, you know, "business") and finally spend some time with people I've been friends with for nearly my whole online life.

(Now get the hell down here, will ya)

Looked up on google for the quick Jul Discord link because I couldn't find it on the forums (all of them were expired), an d the first link that I found was to a Fortnite Discord. I'm wondering if this is any coincidence.

Looks like I might have to call the post office.


Reminds me of the wholedebacle I've gotten myself into in regards with the CA DMV and my town's post office. Namely, I had went there all the way in October to get an ID, and for whatever reason, instead of printing out the ID and handing it to you like how it's done in Illinois and, really, the sane way of doing it, it had to go through the mail, and given I'm the only one in this house with a different surname, along with the knowledge that apparently there was a new person working at the post office (which is a tiny building that maybe employs 5 people at most), it's certainly possible that the delivery was killed with less than five feet to go to its destination (bonus points, we don't have mailboxes here, only PO Boxes).

And then I didn't go back to fix it until now, about a month before my current IL ID expires because

Today I'm in one of those moods where I want to do something but at the same time don't feel like doing anything. Good thing I don't have much I actually need to get done this week.

weee out of a bunch of money because shitty things.

I ordered a bunch of items like, two months ago or something? Close to anyway. Then a few days after that the customs announce (well, technically the major postal company that is partially state owned), that they would be applying a new flat fee for packages outside of EU. With the new processing fee being 75sek per package + import tax (import tax is not a problem here). Said project went into effect two weeks after the announced it (which I find super pissy, to be frank. This wouldn't have been an issue if I knew).

But since it's usually more practical to order packages from china individually (since, you know, it's from different "stores"/etc in china anyway), that's what I had done. I'm not at all interested in paying 75sek per packaged, most of the things I ordered were in around the range of 8-24sek in price..., and it's 15 packages. Bleh. I briefly considered paying for a few of them, but since I don't know which package is which from the invoices/thing from customs I really don't want to do that.

So yeah, a bunch of money down the drain since the shit I ordered won't show up due to shit I couldn't know in advance.

I can confirm that being sick on your birthday sucks. Happened to me the past two birthdays as well. Maybe you'll feel a bit better tomorrow? (I can hope)

I got notified of it at one in the morning and it's already been cancelled. I'm also pretty sure I know who did it (relatively speaking) so today I'm going to go give their manager some words.

Coffee and shower may have helped me feel awake this morning for once. I hope I can get through the while day like this.

Also, my credit card got duplicated, so that sucks! Hope my backup card that just came in the mail last week will work since I haven't used it for literally anything but Linode in two years.

That really sucks, hope you can get it sorted out before it's too late.

Arguably not dead, but undead, revived by some controller for the purposes of profit.

There are fucking *ads* ?!

Yeah I feel definitely not good about it.

Edit: I know this is a fairly melodramatic response, and it's probably because I'm sleep deprived, but I'm actually quite sad about this. I know Homestuck has been over for a very long time, but this somehow makes it feel not just *over* but actually *dead*.
