This is the first Holiday Season in a few years that I haven’t had girlfriend to spend it with and it was pretty weird. Many nights I fell asleep thinking of old girlfriends and weird things like that. So today I was fairly happy to go back to work and move on with the new year. But I thought I had better take a look back on the Christmas Holiday anyways.
I was off work since the 22nd. Most of the time was spend just sitting around the house being lazy. Although I did get a few things done as well a a few presents.
- Made the first version of JimBot, and IRC bot.
- Put all my DVD’s in a spread sheet, with IMDB links.
- Got new tires on my car
- Figured out how to share my Airport card with my XBox.
- Got a few shirts for Christmas
- Also got money, which will be used for school.
- Played with Wiimote White Board and head tracking.
- Started using KeePass for storing all my passwords. Its cross platform.
Mostly I just spend the time off being lazy. It was great, but I am happy to be back to normal life.

Wendsday - After work I went to Target to get a birthday card for my mom. Since it was her birthday we all decided to go out for dinner. Once I left Target I headed over to the Eagles where my parents where getting drunk. Anyways after that we went to dinner at Logans. They had the most expensive things there. By the time we were done the bill was closee to $100
Thursday - Turkey Day. Well since holidays aren’t that big of a deal in our family, I just kind of sat around all day doing nothing but watching TV, chatting with Kerri and just playing around on my computer. My mom did however make some awesome stuffing, with turkey in it. It was the best part of out Thanksgiving meal.
Friday – Being as it was Black Friday and post people didn’t go to work I stayed away from all shopping centers. I did however go to work for a little over half the day. I didn’t have anything going on so there really was no point in taking vacation time to just sit at home. I did make it over to Brian’s house where we played some Mario Galaxy. Its an awesome game. The playability is a lot like Mario64, which is awesome. One thing thats hard to get used to the concept of running around items in space, but after you do its normal. The game almost makes me want a Wii again. I also worked on getting CGI:IRC working on my server. If you use irc, you can now go to throwthemind.com/irc and use the web client to access any server, and if you noticed its all over ssh.
Saturday - Didn’t get out of bed till around 11am, then just kind of hung out at the house for a while. I then left and headed to the Narrows where I continued to hang out. Watched the 3rd Resident Evil. Pretty good movie. Stopped by Ross’s for a while, then back home. I played around with reverse proxies but didn’t get anything working.
Sunday - A no socks Sunday again. Yep I just sat round all day. Really I worked on a reverse proxy for meebo.com. I want to be able to access meebo from my own server over ssl. I also read some more in a Ruby on Rails book and created a little test app. RoR does a lot for you. Its crazy. One feature is it versions your database. So you can go back to any previous version with no problems. Its kind of cool. But also a little weird to wrap my head around.
So there you have it a rundown of my Holiday weekend. Got some server stuff done, and learned a few things, but other than that I’m kind of boring.
