As of this past Thursday afternoon, I'm on spring break!
... not that I'm going to be doing much. I had wanted to get in on the pillows concert at Knitting Factory in NYC after discovering that it indeed took place during my spring break, but I found out that the tickets were all sold out. So, probably no big trips.
I just hope to spend more time with a few friends over the next week. And -maybe- do a little of the writing I'm supposed to do over the break. Just maybe.
I still have to write up about lots of stuff that happened in the past month and a half too, like how I proved how badly I suck at bowling at Strike Long Island. It'll have to wait because I'm going to be heading to Dave's apartment in a minute for his going-away party, as he's moving back to Pennsylvania next week.
And I'm a good little referral whore, so I'll point out that the DreamHost Triple Bandwidth/Storage sale ends on March 20... maybe. They wouldn't be silly enough to extend it for a third time... right? o.O
And yes, the Battle Angel DVD auction ends tomorrow night. Please help me out and bid if you're interested!
Some of you might remember my anime DVD sales that I was starting... last year. It's very much overdue, but I've finally begun. Just one auction for now, but I may add a few more on Sunday.
And the item isn't even one that was on the original list: Battle Angel (Gunnm) DVD. Rare, out of print, and in damn near perfect condition. I bought one of the last copies TRSI had, watched it once, then let it sit on a shelf for some two or three years. So I figured it might as well do me some good now.
I kind of wish I had left it sealed. Oh well...
And as a consequence of trying to pursue the maximum profit from this, I've upgraded my PayPal account to Premier so I can now accept credit card payments. Of course, now I can't receive money without PayPal taking a cut...
Yeah. What I expected to be a short fad turned into... a longer-lived fad. Before the load balancing system of mirrors was implemented, people were pulling up to 35gb a day, all for one 1.4mb Flash game. Crazy.
I'll keep hosting it as long as I can (and the load balancing should help), but if I don't get any donations for hosting or if the bandwidth load doesn't drop much, I might have to take things down for a while.
Oh, and how's life? Lots and lots of schoolwork to finish, I've been going to Chris's house with Alison for several Saturdays straight, and on Thursday I had an interesting trip down to the Chevy Chase Bank HQ to apply for a part-time or peak-time teller position. (That $80 that the ATM didn't give me is pretty much gone now - the relevant people don't even bother responding to me anymore. I'm only applying for a job because they have tons of openings and they pay remarkably well for part-time work.) I'll have to elaborate on all that some other day...
