Was it so recently that I sat in this chair, amidst STA Orientation, asking myself who are these crazy people and what have I gotten myself into..? Ah, and now, almost a year later, I can’t help but wonder how I managed to survive TWO ENTIRE SEMESTERS with the crazies that Gary hired. Sometimes I feared for my life… you know, when I would be annoying everyone in the lab and then Lindsay would get really, really mad at me? Those were the days. But alas, it is time for me to go, to spread my wings and drift rapidly toward the ground as I flap frantically.
I will miss you computer lab… I will miss you trash can that only got dumped when banana peels and coke cans were pouring out of it… I will miss you dry erase board that, to my knowledge, has never once been used for any work-related reasons, and instead was subjected to the torture of immature STA drawings and Kyle’s ramblings… I will miss you, unused PC computer. Remember that time I thought I might use you, but then after twenty seconds of waiting for Photoshop to open you froze, and I turned you off and never used you again? Heh, yeah… I’ll miss you too, Josh’s station. You never were the same after he left, but I take solace in the knowledge that wherever Josh is now, I know he has achieved “four monitor status…” Oh, and how could I forget you, weird and random paintings on the desktops? Or you, shelf for professors to drop off stuff at… or you, scanner bed that I put a bowl of ravioli sauce on, and Gary was apalled when he saw it and vowed to make some new “no food” policies, and everyone hated me, but then he didn’t do it and they pretended not to hate me anymore, but Gary secretly plans on instigating strict policies in the fall when, at the next STA Orientation instead of bringing donuts he brings peppermints from in front of Mike’s desk…… and you. You, you, you. Rollie chairs. Where would I have been without your smooth-gliding, STA-bumping-into rollie wheels? I would have had to walk. If I wanted to throw something away or look at someone else’s work, I would have had to stand up! But no, you took care of me, Rollie chairs. You made my job sitting in front of a computer that much more sedentary. And for that I salute you.
I love you, Rollie Chairs. I love you.
So now I must go, but I shall leave with this last message: If something ever happens to me and I go to that big STA lab in the sky… I hope someone will bring me cookies. Or a Dr Pepper. …or both.

Hey gang, it’s me again! How have you been able to make it through the day without one of my oft hilarious, oft thoughtful blog posts… Hah-No, seriously, how?

I was going to have all theDVDsmade this morning, but instead I had hard drive failures and wasted all my time getting it working again. A-sigh.

Hoorayyy. Marissa helped me yesterday to turn my trailers intoDVDs, and she made one for me that is awwwesome. Except I have a list of things to change, but I’m sure she won’t mind… right?

Julio stole my commie hat! In other news, I found out why I was having problems with the Wiki (as far as uploading images). It turns out that when you open the wiki in Firefox, the image links do not work. I don’t know why, but they work just fine in Safari. For shame, Firefox. For shame. Between that and Firefox’s freakinginability to run streaming video from windows media player, they have lost favor with me. Still better than Explorer, but what is that saying, really?

Getting married Saturday… yup.

Would someone please tell me why my images don’t work when I copy and paste the code? It’s annoying. Josh and I realized we have to change the titles of our pages because for instance this one is called “MyBlog,” but if anyone else does something with “MyBlog” it will link to my page. I want to change it to “AndrewMyBlog,” but when I copied and pasted the text, my images had ?’s next to them. Any ideas, people?
when you upload an image to a webpage, it is only uploaded tothatpage. for example, i tried to do what you did (rename a webpage of mine on the wiki); i had to re-upload all my images because i essentially made a new page. the upload directory is not some big pool full of people’s images. instead think of it as, everytime you make a new page, you make a new folder; and inside that folder you make another folder called images everytime you upload something (i.e. stawiki > andrew > myblog > images). therefore other webpages cannot access other folder’s images.

I keep wondering how long it will take for vandalism to appear in the STA wikis. I myself have been tempted to update the STA’s wikis that had none, but have resisted. But the thing is, when you are the King of the Wiki, you become a target. I will have to watch my back, that’s all I’m sayin’…
