...i hate computers.. it took me 4 hours to install another RAID drive yesterday.. its such a simple proceedure... it should have been 4 min. why cant they ever just work they way they are supposed to... why cant it go smoothly without any troubleshooting.. they are evil.. i hate them.. that is all.

Sigh. I know.
We can put a man on the moon but we can't get my fucking tripod here in time for Christmas.
Yes, I'm still waiting for the so-called overnight delivery. I (my wife) was told "If it is not there on XMAS, it will be there the day after".
So I'm holding an email recipt confirmation and thinking WTF!? IT an hour and a half up the road.

...i had about 2 hours of footage on tape that had been sitting waiting to be reviewed for a feature im working on, and no hard drive space to put it on. alas a stayed up till 2 am reviewing it after wrestling with the cyberworld to get the drive installed. i found some shots on there from a quite a while back that i wanted to post. ill try to get them on here asap. that is if my other computer dosent pop up some crazy .dll error for no reason, and start on fire when i try to connect to the internet.. "..thank you for riding johnny cab!!!..."
that stinks about the tripod man.. i hate waiting for stuff in the mail. the worst part is that almost every time its supposed to get there its a friday, and my wife just happens to leave for a while right before the fedex or ups guy gets there..so i come home to the little note on the door... and without fail, i get the answer "you can pick it up tommorrow after 5:00" when i call the place. , of course i cant do that on saturday due to my schedule..i sat at ups once for 1 hour waiting for the truck to get back to the station so i could get my package off it and not wait over the weekend.
