Mega-moron

After weeks of heavy raining throughout the country, it was the capital’s turn a few days ago to get flooded. It wasn’t all that bad compared to other places where people died or lost everything, but the media made it look like a deluge anyway.

The general manager of the company that supposedly administers the water and sewer network of the city — and getting hundreds of thousands of euros a day for it — said the citizens are guilty for the flood, because they showered and flushed the toilets in the morning, thus overwhelming the sewer!

Way to go asshole, eat shit and die!

Most wanted

I thought about compiling a list of the things I want the most. It’s not complete and it won’t probably change configuration for a long time. I’ll update it as necessary, although I suspect more things will just pile up in here…

I think you could say these are the things I pray for, although I’m not a church going man and I don’t like the idea of church in the first place.

I think 90% of the features are in, but some of the more important ones are still to come — like saving (more about it another time). I just hope they won’t take me another two weeks… I first started it in J#, but then I decided it’s way too slow because at my first contact with the .NET platform there are a huge number of things to be learn before getting something done. I then turned to Macromedia Director, an old love. And I was really pissed off to see that in those two years since my last project involving it, I forgot almost everything I knew…

  • I really want to get some work done on the website I do for my cousin, but I’m so fucking tired I just can’t. I don’t know what the hell is wrong with me — I get home from work, I walk the dog, I (usually) wash myself and then after dinner my brain just stops functioning. I can stay in front of the computer for many hours more, but I can’t even understand what I’m reading sometimes. I think this needs to be checked sooner rather than later …
