Early morning post
It isn't even 9 am yet and here I am sitting in the computer lab of the college. Why? My mom told me the bank was open this early so I left for it and when I started to pull in it was completely vacant. Not a single vehicle was in the parking lot, front or back. So... I drove through the city park and then headed on to school cause I didn't want to go back home (I may not have gotten back out again)

Anyway... The bad news is the "Portable Things" CD I made doesn't work quite like I would've prefered... The computers here have some mysterious "Removable Drive" as the D: drive and the CD is the E: drive. Despite my home computer having a similar configuration I assumed the computers here had the CD as D:, and configured the software on it as such. Some of it works and some of it doesn't. The thing that specifically doesn't work is Mavis Beacon so I can't practice the Dvorak keyboard while here. Not like I can change the keyboard config here anyway. -.-'

Something I've been failing to mention is that Jo is no longer getting rides with me because he's out of town. To be more specific, he's in a out-of-state jail for the next two years. bleh... *shrugs*

Last week in theatre I was supposed to do a skit about mimicking the personality of someone else and portray them destroying something. I didn't have a clue so on both days I had to skip. Monday night dante_sensei suggested I do Celine Dion breaking a little girl's heart, since that's what he said she is being portrayed as. Come Tuesday morning I hadn't come up with anything better so I started developing that idea. I had my performance delayed until the end of class so I could develop it just a little bit more and that's what did.

Up next, there's a class in here right now and I'm being distracted by them. *sigh* I'm lonely...

Oh, some good news I suppose. The turn out on my poll was abysmal. Support to actually do it was fairly lacking although most supported learning both if I decided to learn the Dvorak keyboard. There was even a vote by someone I don't know (rimspace) although I'm speculating they found me via shadesfox. *shrugs* That's okay.

What to do, what to do... =\ bored. I guess I could start up a game or something. Later. Class time.

Current Mood: groggy groggy
Current Music: none

Eep... Most of my time has been taken up by a program so I didn't vote in a poll^_^;;

I've thought of a dvorak layout, but I'm not sure I could give up qwerty. *shrugs* That and I'm not sure how to redo Linux's layout. Something I've been meaning to do at some time though.

I've been looking at that and it seems a lot easier to change it in linux than windows. One site come to mind specifically for help in that instance.

This site is supposedly like the main Dvorak site and it's FAQ has some useful information for those that can already touch-type QWERTY.

As for me, I've decided to learn Dvorak but be able to use them both. This means I won't be incapacitated while learning it. (Woo)

I knew I forgot to ask you about something >.<

How'd the performance go? I *think* I gather you did it, but not until the end of the day... right?

Yep, right.

It went decent, considering it was totally out of my character and only had a hour or two of preperation. It's certainly not every day that I diss someone. I ended up only saying about 4 lines and I hope the pauses inbetween each was taken as the other person talking. =\

Oh well.
