So, after following the link in TheophileEscargot's diary, I started reading stuff on The Last Psychiatrist. I might have some diaries considering narcissism, or at least discussions about it in person. I'm viewing most of it as a cautionary tale.
I was doing clean and jerks this morning and, as is most convenient, dropping the weights. Now, mind you, I wasn't dropping the barbell from full extension, I was slowing it down and let it go at about knee height. It's a lot less stressful to everything involved than dropping the barbell to your shoulders, dropping it to your hips, and then putting it down. However, one of the personal trainers came by and said, "You can't drop the weights here at $NEW_GYM, but you can at $OLD_GYM." I was like, drat. Denied. But I'm fine with it. I'll just have to do my heavy clean and jerks and snatches at $OLD_GYM instead. Or something. If you're going heavy, after all, you need to have the option of missing, and missing means dropping with those.
I'm moving in a couple weeks and by April should have my grand piano at home. I haven't jet done a MFC but would like to. I have the chance to get one of these Fostex mixers for only €300. It's complete with the CD drive. Anyone have any experience with these?
Last Thursday I had to pack up everything from the Cube of Hate® thanks to a change of offices which I'll enumerate in a later post. This took me two days. I threw out a lot of crap and still managed to fill five large boxes. Another two were stuffed with MSDN CDs and DVDs. If you have old MSDN media, don't throw anything away. Not even the Everything Subscriptions can access NT4 or Win2K among other deprecated software. This is a problem when you need to load up, say, Windows NT 4 SP3 Greek for a weird problem that a customer is having. Luckily for said customer I'm a pack rat and had both NT4 GRE and the SP3 CD.
Friday was a Day of Tremendous Waste about which I also have a bit to say. Luckily I'd printed out enough Evil-level Sudokus to keep me busy between the various rounds of break food we got.
It didn't take me too long to find the new building this morning; finding my spot was even easier. Along with my seven boxes of crapola, someone had decided that all the lab machines belonged to me. Heavy rack-mount Suns and a 4-way Netfinity that used to belong to Education, and old single-proc Netfinity and more. All mine!
