Computers N Glasses

About a week ago my glasses broke, the ones I use while sitting in front of the computer, to see. I've been dropping them all over the place and carrying them around in a softbox for a couple of years, so it's not strange, but I was still a little shocked when they actually split in two. They broke at a pretty bad place too, just at the edge of the middle bow. I panicked at first, remembering how much they cost (about 1,100 SEK) but then I calmed down and taped them together. Since they broke at such an odd spot it took a lot of duct tape to patch them together, and they still sag at both ends, but that's nothing a little using won't get me ignorant of. I looked around for a new pair, was at the verge of buying one when I decided to try these out instead:

Pinhole Glasses

"What are those?!" you may ask, and the answer is: Pinhole glasses. By teaching your eye to focus on varied points within your periphery you will in time improve your eyesight, instead of each few years needing to upgrade to a new stronger pair of glasses. At least that's what they say about them. The fact that the American government has forbidden anyone to speak positively about this amazing product just increases my hope in it, just imagine what a devastating blow they would deliver to the current eyeglass industry if they worked. They are much much cheaper, and in time, you won't even need them, much less need to buy a new - even more expensive pair. So, I'll be ordering a pair of these and trying them out, if it works, HURRAH! BANZAI! YAHOO! If not, hmm, that day that problem.

#362(2) Flitter

I stepped up the stairs
Compelled by desire
To step up these stairs
And therein rise higher

I strive to survive
I thrive when I reach
The violent desire
To rise off my feet

Fly to the skies
Abide with the blue
Blend and in sense
Repel all my views

Perspectives all new
Adjectives can't tell
The subject that flew
In entry, farewell

#362 Untitled 48

Fly with the moonlight
Stay in your home tonight
Run when the sun rises
Walk through the shadows

Let the widows ready battle
Let the widows fall in place
Let the widows ready battle
Let the widows fail in face

New Computer, And Other Stuff

Now that Christmas is over I can finally buy stuff for myself!

It's not that I want to buy stuff for myself though, I'd rather not, I'd rather save the money instead, but I wasn't given a computer so thus I must pay for one myself and watch my stash of cash shrivel up at an alarming rate. The current one in house (not even my own) is seven years old. It was super-duper when we bought it, but time flies, and now it's not super-duper anymore. My parents barely use the computer, and my dad is not keen on buying new technological equipment any time soon. So I have, after two days of searching all over the net for the perfect package, bought myself a new computer, today.

White I was at it, I bought myself a little NAS server, two 3,5 SATA discs on 1,5TB each, and since a monitor didn't follow with the computer, I had to buy a good one as well. I tried to find a balance between quality and price instead of buying a full set for half as much (as I was planning on doing) and I'm pretty proud of the final choice. Computer should be arriving on Monday or Tuesday, so more info on that then. For the meantime, I'll just daydream about the added wirepower and have nightmares about my almost empty bank account.

Oh, I also bought a tiny remote controlled car and a digital camera, they'll come in handy. See you later then.
