Star Wars: The Last Jedi -- Addressing the Backlash MEMOIRS OF A NOVELTY ACCOUNT
VOL. III, ISSUE I
 
I wanted to use this entry to state my opinion on The Last Jedi and the recent backlash. I want it to be known that:
 
1. I am a huge Star Wars fan
2. I, too, dislike what Disney is doing to Star Wars
3. But I LIKED The Force Awakens
4. And I LIKE the prequels
5. And I LIKED this movie.

Good evening. I am... Dracula. Ah ah ah.
For me, this Monday was truly imperial. I was stuck at a certain part of my CS210 lexer assignment, and showed it to my instructor, saying "I feel like if I just get past this problem, I could finish this in two hours." He said he severely doubted my abilit...

eBay & Impulse Buying MEMOIRS OF A NOVELTY ACCOUNT

Good afternoon and welcome to Imperial Mondays.
 
Remember how last week I said my plans ended in disaster? Well, I bought a kerosene lamp on eBay and it also ended in disaster.
I was looking for a certain kind; the type with a round wick and a shade, most commonly made under the name "Rayo"...

As you may know, my blog Memoirs of a Novelty Account has not seen an entry for almost a month, and I apologize. Posting twice a week was difficult, even on winter break, but now that I'm back in college, schoolwork has caught up to me. However, I do wish to remain active on this site, so I am restar...


Back to School

College
Back to School I've moved back into my college apartment. It's pretty nice; I'm proud of how I've kept the living room clean.
After days of fiddling with the configuration of my 1987 Epson Apex, I was able to get both the mouse and joystick to work. Then I installed Windows 1.01. It's a blast.
Also that old map of imperial Germany I ordered came in the mail. It'll go on...

Crappy Poetry I didn't have anything special planned for today's entry, but recently I'd been thinking about some of the more cringeworthy poems I've written over the years. What? Of course I'm going to post them here for all the world to see! It's an exercise in confidence. What are people gonna do, cyberbully me for being a crappy poet? Ha! what a joke.

Voltage Regulator, Heavy Sixer
Two Fries and a Hamburger Yesterday my heavy sixer stopped working. I opened it up, thinking it was a connection problem, but reconnecting the ribbon cable did nothing.
I read in a forum post that voltage regulators, when they fail, tend to take a few ICs with them. I replaced the RIOT, and it worked for 30 seconds before dying again.
So... Now I have 2 fried RIOT chips (pictured)...
