Money! MONEY!

Holla, everyone.

So I seem to be just falling into money today! It’s really nice, specially since I spent so much yesterday. 🙂

Anyways, I got a refund check from my apartment building in Ames, they sent me $789. They refunded ALL of Julys rent and about $100 of Junes rent, then plus about $250 of my deposit. Very cool. So that makes me feel fine about spending the money to go back to Iowa this weekend. Then today I got my first pay check from Webreach. VERY cool! Even though they did take over $500 out in taxes. It looks like as long as I keep my spending to under insane I should be able to save about $2,000 a month.

I’m very anxious to get my last paycheck from Krell as well as my last two paychecks from Old Navy. I think I may have to call them tomorrow and find out what the hell is going on there though, because I have yet to receive them. Very annoying. I’ll probably just go in and talk to them while I’m in Iowa. I think I may buy a 20gb Ipod with those paychecks. I just bought an Airport Extreme card for my laptop though, it was only $50. 🙂

Let see, what else. Not much really. I’ve been spending lots of time at the apartment hanging out with the roomie and his boyfriend, who by the way has a REALLY hot ass. lol. They also seem to havae lots of sex. It makes me sad. 🙁

I did get fairly annoyed today though becaues we were talking about Ford cars and stuff and Ty was arguing with me about something that was clearly a defect (He claimed it was normal to be albe to pull the key out of the ignition with the car running). I explained to him that you are NOT supposed to be able to do that. It was just really annoying because he constantatly acts like he knows EVERYTHING.

I’m really excited to go back to Iowa this weekend. I can’t wait to see Andrew again and be back in an area where I know where everything is and I know the good places to go and I know what there is to do! I really hope that I get to hang out with a few people to, and do some certian things. We pretty much have the whole weekend planned out already.

One thing that I really want to do is go to the Redlight again. Hopefully with Justin, but since he sucks at IMing me back that probably won’t happen. 🙁

I really like iTunes, but I have a few problems with it. First being that it doesn’t play all the songs in the playlist before repeating ccertian songs. Now, this would be a VERY easy thing to fix. Since iTunes already keeps track of the number of times a song has played and the last time it was played, you’d think they would be able to check the # of times played against the last time played field to see if there might be another song that should go ahead of it. Or something like that. I just wish there were an option to make it so that it doesn’t play songs.

Also, it doesn’t read ID3 tags properly, or at least doesn’t know what to do with them when there aren’t any. For example, in winamp you can tell it what’s what, like most of my songs DON’T have ID3 tags, but the file name is set up so that it’s ARTIST NAME – SONG NAME.mp3 Well iTunes doesn’t know what to do, so just puts all the info in the song name field. Very annoying.

I did find this cool program though to auto-fill ID3 tags. It’s called “iEatBrainz”. It’s really pretty cool and is doing a really good job at filling in all my tags. Though it is a bit slow and some songs it doesn’t know.

Now this request is a bit off the wall, I wish that you could have the visulizer playing in a second monitor and have the primary monitor show the itunes window and desktop. That’s be sweet.

I also wish that you could export your Itunes library as an HTML document and be able to select what ID3 information you want to export. Currently you can export it in XML and TXT, but it exports EVERYTHING. I don’t want EVERYTHING, I just want an HTML page that lists the Artist Name – Song Name… Maybe even break it up into categories. I was thinking of writing a perl script to take the XML output currently and convert that to HTML. But the XML isn’t even sorted, so I’d have to learn how to sort in perl first.

Oh, I’ve been using the other guys account recently since mine has been broken and I found out that he’s very religous. I’m just glad that I don’t have to actually work with him during the day.

Umm, there was some other shit I wanted to talk about, but now I can’t remember. So laters all!
