think i literally spent the entire night fiddling around with the tracks on my sony md :X
long overdue overhaul done there, replaced almost all of the tracks heh heh, get to listen to some new stuff at last. the new version of sonicstage (the dumb software that i’m forced to use in order to upload the songs onto my netmd) pretty much sucks in user friendliness ‘tho; prefer the old one.
one phenomenon that i noticed (but didn’t attribute to sonicstage) was the increasing lack of disk space on my C drive. it wasn’t until i was having serious trouble uploading the last four tracks from my elt everlasting album (i’d ripped the damn songs into .wav, encoded into .mp3 THREE TIMES and errors occurred everytime.. was really getting pissed) and i saw my free space measured in kilobytes that i decided to figure out what the fuck was happening. and yep, the dumb sonicstage was hogging like 800 plus meg of disk space because of the compressed music files it created before transfers. gee -.- 1.7meg per file, and i had 800+ meg worth? way lotta songs. i’ve killed like 90per of the stuff anyway; there were some david tao songs i couldn’t get rid of due to the overly long filenames ;p microsloth windoze two dozen seemed to find it sufficiently amusing that it rejected my delete commands for those songs.
but yes, after three hours or so of waiting, my new playlist is up and ready.. chock full of every little thing, l’arc en ciel and other assorted japanese bands.. bwahaha :X
hope i won’t have to do this again anytime soon, major waste of time bleh.
a phrase which stuck in my brain after talking to qinglong the other night ;p
from his account, the girl seems to be a fervent support of chauvinism. working full-time but expecting him to foot the bills for everything, and i mean *everything* ;p
the mother also sounds demanding, wanting him to support her precious daughter with all possible means, ugh. what’s her problem man.
and i thought equality of the sexes was in trend? he’s just a student man, albeit an nie undergrad but still getting a meagre allowance. barely scraping thru with tuition and the allowance, and he still has to dig deep into the pockets to pay. sad 😉
and then he was saying that if he ever lost it (i.e. his tolerance) he’d set her down gently.
i was like ‘fuck it man, why bother? you think she’ll treat you that nice if it was the other way round ah?’
.. as usual. brain to mouth response time measured in nanoseconds.
qinglong’s more kindly in nature i guess; to him everyone deserves a break, and the usual ‘do not do onto others what thou wouldst not do onto yourself’ rule applied.
in my context, fairness never comes into play in reality.
maybe i’m just a biased asshole for thinking like this, but nice guys *always* endup being losers so why bother? there’s plenty of nice guys in the world already, don’t think i’ve to contribute to the loser population by being another one of the nice docile sheep 😉
and yessiree, 3 bags full (of shit) fer u; the wool got lost somewhere heh.
swelling’s gone down, but still feels a ‘lil stiff. light jumps (i.e. slight testing of the leg) at home conclude that the leg is *definitely* not at 100%; the spring seems to be unwound somewhere heheh.
well then, treatment again tomorrow!
gotta start packing for sentosa as well, and confirm the list of people coming. seems like meng’ll only come at night after work, and lishi’s not coming ‘cus of her back; poor girl. confirm the rest on thurs i guess, now’s too early to tell.
time to resume downloads of survive! :X nitesie.
