Cost Of Everything

It’s not a good way to start the day with 90% of our sites being down.

I’ve been struggling with a PL/SQL program for the last two days. I don’t know anything about this language so it’s very confusing for me. Though I showed MH some of the stuff I was doing (Because I forgot to put a (i) for my array variable, DUH!) and he said that it was pretty advanced, who knows? Seems easy then if someone like me can pump it out. lol

I broke down yesterday and bought a meal at Hardee’s (AKA Carl’s Jr.) yesterday. I’ve been craving it for so long and I just couldn’t hold myself back any longer! It was really yummy. Sometimes I miss fast food. lol.

Last night I was watching TV and there was a commercial for a Saturn Ion starting at $12,000. And it of course got me thinking about buying a new car again… At $10k cheaper then my current cheapest pick, it almost seems worth it to just get another damn Saturn. It’s the economy of the thing you know? This car got me 100,000 miles without any major defects. So assuming I’m going to use my next car, whatever it may be, for about 100,000 more miles it seems logical to just go for whatever would in the long run be the least cost per mile overall.

This is a major problem with me is that I think of everything as “What will it cost me in the smallest unit”. It’s very annoying sometimes! For example, my current car has cost a total of $.30 per mile. Which is including Purchase, Insurance and Registration but not including Maint costs. About $.06 of that is gas costs per mile. (The average cost per mile is up $.01 from last year though, and up $.02 from 2 years ago!).

Sorry, I know I’m a dork!

There were a few other things I wanted to write about last night, but now I can’t remember them!

So I’m out.

Edit:// I forgot to mention that I’ve also been packaging up a few of the applications that I’ve written to put them up on SourceForge! 🙂

You know just the other day I thinking about something similar to your forumla up yonder about gas mileage with my car. But I am too lazy to figure it out.

So how do Saturns ride. Being a small car I would think you would feel every bump in the rode?

Yeah, they pretty much do feel every bump in the road, but I’m used to it now.

The problem is that they are closing the ION line out till 2009! So no more small sized cars from saturn till then. And alot of people are saying that will be the end of saturn all together since GM is having so many problems.

Do you keep tabs on every iota of money you spend or what? I know if I did that i would probably just be sad that I waste so much.
