Yay for globalization
I just got a decent (not as good as I've had in NYC but better than many) pastrami and swiss at a fast food chain called Schlotzsky's. In Tempe.

About to go see Steve Larson play at a bar in a strip mall. My golden spaceship is waiting in the parking lot. It's an HHR, whatever the shit that means.

Things are cheap when you can split them four ways. And Jenni should be a freakin' agent.

Viva Circus Mexicus!

EDIT: and a drivethru and Macs for use!

Current Location: Tempe, AZ
Feeling: giggly giggly
Listening to: muzak version of California Dreaming

YAY! Now reboot CS!

Err... No SSH client on my blackberry. I'll see what I can do later tonight at our host's apartment.

I am going to bed anyway, so I wouldn't even sweat it. All those other punks will just have to browse myspace all night. Enjoy your travels.

Well, I'll worry about it. So what broke this time?
From: mass_disgrace Date: May 19th, 2006 04:44 am (UTC) (Hard link)
No idea. Everyone just gets 'connection refused'. you can still telnet to cs.vv.com and get the sun os login, but 7777 or 6969 got nothing.

Bleh. Sounds like the server's fine, but the MOO is down... Which is exactly the kind of thing I can easily fix with a SSH client.

W00t! So any minute now?

Looks like the game's back up, thanks Kingfox! But here's a Telnet/SSH1&2 client I installed on my Crackberry a week ago, in case you maybe looking for one.

Download links for the Client

Thanks for the link! I ended up getting Netsville to do it, as I was having problems connecting from Arizona. Mexico, here I come!

No Schlotzky's in Jersey, eh? They're like dandelions around here. Well, not quite, but they're around. I think they're kinda over-priced for a chain deli.

Nope, we've got a large and vibrant Jewish population, and thus have the real thing. Granted, lots of bagel joints and the like end up scrimping and might as well be a chain joint.

Just the experience of a nationwide version of the beloved local deli was fun to see.

Their Chicken Caesar Salad was very convincing.

Although I don't think it tasted very Jewish. It was no Katz's Chicken Caesar Salad.

Cos, you know, Katz doesn't serve Chicken Caesar salad.

Katz is good, but kinda overrated I think.

I'd like to clarify that I should be a *travel* agent. Not just any old agent.

Also, my Powebook has SSH if and when you need it. But you're sleeping right now. And Amanda has a fucking POOL. I'm trying to decide if I should go swimming or not. Cos it's fucking 100 degrees out already and a pool would be so rad.

Wake up, Russ. Let's go swimming!

We never did swim in her pool, did we?

Swimming Mexico was fun.

Global village

Wierd thing, I was searching for pics of District Six (Cape Town) on flickr today, preparing for a class. The particular image I'd hoped to find was there, it's a famous old bit of graffitti "You are now in fairyland " and it was taken by one "jenniever". I immediately recognised her from all the mentions in your journal - please tell her thanks from me :)

Re: Global village


I love that picture. I wish I had a copy of the real thing, instead of a photograph of a poster.

What were you doing about District Six in class? That whole thing is sad/fascinating. A very important part of Cape History.

Re: Global village

Ha, great usericon :)
I drive past District Six every day, as I live just round the corner. Right now, new housing is being built for the people who were forcibly removed from there in the sixies. The rebuilding is moving unbelievably slowly. There was a great flurry of activity before the last national election in 2004, but it's been going at a snail's pace since then - typical politicians. I think they've got three rows of little semi-detached houses built now. The oldest people get moved back first; sadly some of the older residents died before the new houses were built.
I found your pic because my students are doing an online documentary about District Six next term. I want them to document the space while it's still empty and undeveloped. It's incredibly moving - a vast windswept scar of history. And there are those expansive panoramic views of the mountain and the city. As you walk around, you still stub your toes on piles of overgrown rubble from the demolished houses. And the cracked old streets of the district are still visible through the weeds and grass. You probably know all this if you visited there, though.
Anyway, I'll post you a link when the project's done :)

Re: Global village

Oh, so rad, you *live* in Cape Town. I was there for six months in 2001 - we took a drive through District Six and my friend Gerritjan lived just outside of it. It was really creepy how desolate it was. I'm glad to hear there was some movement after 2004!

Good luck with your project!
