goddammit, not again

mood: annoyedannoyed

Got an IM last night from a friend letting me know that my twitter account was suspended and my website had a malware warning again.

Dammit dammit dammit

I cleaned the obfuscated code, sent a message to my server host that they need to find and close the gorram hole and then cleaned out a bunch of unused databases and files that were on the server. Hopefully that’ll fix it. I have to wait to hear back from the server before I can get google to deflag me (though I am not actually getting the warning, myself). Also sent a message to twitter telling them just to delete the link to my website in my profile and unsuspend me.

Fuck this is annoying.

things i've been up to

Jul. 23rd, 2008 | 10:54 pm

coming up on the 3 month mark of living and working up here in dc. summary of my life here:

I work M-F 730am-430pm managing a website, designing a new one, helping with various computer related things
I go swing dancing twice a week, one night of which includes lindy hop lessons
I play ultimate frisbee on the national mall most saturday afternoons
I started taking krav maga lessons (2-3 times a week) last week and am really enjoying it so far
I go see a movie or two every other weekend
I'm reading a ridiculous amount (everything after march) because of the commute time on the metro and bus/shuttle and in down time between work and other activities
I've also been to quite a number of concerts - Squirrel Nut Zippers, Robert Plant & Alison Krauss, Iron Maiden, Dropkick Murpheys and the Mighty Mighty Bosstones. Friday I'll be going to see the Cherry Poppin' Daddies. I might go see Nas, A Tribe Called Quest, Mos Def, and more this sunday. jethro tull & the young dubliner's in two weeks, and judas priest, testament & motorhead the next night. and I just heard that the who will be playing in DC on november 3rd. *splooge* favorite band ever! must. go. see.

i try to get out and wander the city occasionally. jon and british came up this past weekend and we and jon's sister went to a dc united game. it was only worth watching for about the last 20 minutes. dc united just didn't look like they were trying. and watching american soccer bores me, it's so stagnant compared to european and latin american soccer. after that we went and wandered georgetown and hit up a few bars. we had quite a fun time, though jon's sister lost a lot of her drink in the cab home. silly girl. i went and saw dark knight on sunday. great movie. ledger's joker was absolutely phenomenal.

in case you hadn't noticed, i'm linking to my other blog. if you want to make things simple so you don't have to check there for updates, you can add the livejournal stream i created

yesterday after work I went to a boardgames meetup for a few hours. it was fun, but when i was walking back to the metro, I crossed the Washington Mall. right smack dab in the middle was a crowd of people, fancy lighting, and camera equipment. I go closer and saw that it was the cast and crew of Night at the Museum II, and Ben Stiller and his co-star were filming a part of a scene where they are hurrying across the Mall when someone yells at Stiller's character and they duck behind a tourist information sign (fake). In the span of the 30-45 minutes I was watching they did that same scene 6 or 7 times. Nothing spectacular happened, but it was interesting none-the-less. Also, Ben Stiller is short. And his co-star is hot.

the internets! we has them

Apr. 29th, 2008 | 08:15 am

comcast finally got out and got the internet hooked up in my apartment. so here is the move update.

for most of last week, I spent the days packing up my apartment, a little bit at a time. But everything except my computer was packed up by thursday evening. Friday morning my dad and brother drove over to Raleigh and we went and got a box truck from Penske. We loaded up everything in my apartment except my computer and a sleeping bag, then drove it back to durham to load up my bookshelves, stereo, boxes and other stuff at my parents house. Then I went back to Raleigh and cleaned a bit before showering and going to my farewell party. I stopped at starbucks on the way to mojoes to say bye to the folks who were working there, then headed over to mojoes to meet folks for dinner. Had a good time at dinner, with about 12-15 people showing up. Headed over to my apartment around 930ish and a night of super smash brothers and alcohol and general funness was had by all. Thanks to all you folks who were able to make it out. Pictures are here.

Saturday morning my parents swung by at 9, and we hit the road. We got to the apartment complex around 3, I got checked in and got the key and we started to move stuff in. Comcast was scheduled to come out between 3 and 6. After two calls, the guy finally got here at 8. Cable got set up, but he was unable to set up the internet. I had to reschedule it on Sunday for early this morning. Late Saturday, it started to rain. It was only fitting, and I'd predicted it a week earlier. When I'd come up for the job interview in late March, it was a gray and drizzly day. When my dad and I came up last Sunday/Monday to look at apartments, we drove up to the area in torrential rain and it rained pretty steadily until we were back in North Carolina. I was saying then that it would probably be raining when I moved in. It did spritz on us while carrying stuff from the vehicles, but nothing that got us wet. But it basically rained for the next two days, just to taunt me. It should be really nice on Thursday, when I start the job. Anyway, here are pictures of the apartment. As you can see, I'm still in the middle of unpacking.

Oh, and speaking of starting the new job on Thursday, my first fortune cookie up here read, "You have an important new business development shaping up." That is one hell of a coincidence.

About 6 hours ago I signed for an apartment in Alexandria, Virginia. I'll be moving in on Saturday the 26th.

Time to pack.
