The clock was off on my computer, and I had to correct the netdiary dates... hopefully I got them right. I believe it was, for some reason, 13 hours slow. It's probably because I had to reboot this computer 12 days ago for a kernel upgrade, and didn't check the time then. It's irritating how often booting my computers messes up their clocks. Oh well. I don't really worry about it too much because my computers generally stay up for a very long time (thanks to UPS's). My main Alpha has been up 59 days. Bored because the recruiting agency didn't call me back yet regarding if they can fit me in today. Also, the local Cajun place isn't open because of the darned holidays. I hate holidays. Businesses close, and advertisements get more irritating telling one to buy stuff. Oh well. I might as well talk about what I think of Columbus. It's not as exciting as I like, but in the 5 years I've lived here for college, I've grown to kind of like it. There are plenty of pretty parks, there arn't really hard barriers between the neighborhoods, and there are plenty of good places to eat nearby. I also have grown to like an all-night coffeeshop called Insomnia. They generally don't mind if you stay there for 5 hours or so, so I often go there at nights to program or philosophise. Their food selection isn't as wide as it should be.. *shrug*. As for actual food, there's

  • The Cajun Place - I eat there quite often, their food is perhaps a bit bland, but it's very good, it's $5 a meal, and their meals are of the precise size where I can just barely eat all of one if I'm hungry.
  • The Indian Oven - They have incredible food. It's a bit pricey, but their curry is probably the best curry I've ever had.
  • TJ's - Like Insomnia, they're open all-hours, and their food is cheap. Apart from their pancakes, their food isn't very good, and even their pancakes arn't terrific, but they're still good for when I get hungry late at night.
  • Mongolian BBQ - Make your own food. Yum. Also kind of pricey, and often crowded.

I'm really looking forward to getting a job. I've been in contact with some people in Brussels (Belgium), and so that might be fun. It might be a pain to bring my Iggies and my Cat with me though.

Anyhow, I think I'll call back that job place, as I'm getting tired of waiting.
