default, superpanda, panda

A solid week of music.

I have all of my MP3s on random here. 6,956 MP3s. 481 hours, 35 minutes, and 45 seconds of music. I actually own the CDs behind all of these MP3s (minus two songs: the performance of 'The C Days of Y2K' and the performance of 'OSPF'). I have maybe 30 CDs that need to be added to this pile.

This is a lot of music.

Apple needs to release a 40G iPod. While the 20G is tempting, I already have 25G of MP3s, and just want to be able to dump all of my MP3s to a device. Creative has announced a 40G Nomad Jukebox, but I am so leery of Playcenter.

R'ing the FM

Ok, ok. I really need to sit down and read the whole LJ FAQ from one end to the other, I think. I need to figure out this multiple levels of security thing. There are people that I would like to add as friends that I don't necessarily want to see everything that I would like other people to see. I know this has something to do with the custom setting, but I haven't delved much deeper than that.

But not tonight. I am way too groggy tonight. And, I have no cheese.

Ain't technology grand?

So, my hand is killing me from where I burned it tonight. (Ergle.) I seemed to recall having a cold compress sort of thingie around the house somewhere, so I went digging. In one of the random cabinets in the bathroom, I found what I was looking for.

This thing is Hi Tech (tm). There is a big plastic-encased liquid bubble thingie, with SQUEEZE HERE TO ACTIVATE emblazoned on it. So you do, and you hear this popping sound as you break the plastic seal. Then, per instructions, you shake the whole doohicky vigorously, to mix the solid parts and the liquid parts, and it all gets cold.

Tres cool. Of course, it's probably toxic as all hell. Oh, yes, let's see. Contents: Ammonium Nitrate and Water. I think I shall be careful not to puncture the little plastic pouch, eh?

But it's still cool. (No pun intended.) (No. Really.) (Chill.) (har)
