#2855: The RJ-45 crimper arrived already

That was pretty fast. That was amazingly fast, in fact, now that I think of it. I ordered it on Thursday.

Anyway, it came with a cable tester, and it's a good thing I've got a functional cable to try it out on because the instructions are in Manglish:
Do not use it beyond usage.
Do not change it on your mind.
"Do not use it beyond usage"? How the hell am I supposed to know when that is? And what happens if I do? And I can't even evaluate "Do not change it on your mind" considering that the sentence isn't even grammatically correct.

The chart for determining whether or not a cable is good doesn't make sense, either. (I'm not going to try to reproduce it here.)

So what I'll have to do is put a battery in it, plug in a known-good cable, see what happens, and hope to GOD I'm not using this thing beyond usage. Okay, if we all end up on Saturn or in the Mesozoic Era or something, don't blame me.

So the stock market closed six hundred and thirty-five points lower today than it was on Friday. I saw that and said, "Oh, my God." I had expected it to close up from the -500 point; instead it dropped another hundred points.

It dropped 200 points in the first half-hour of trading this morning.

Ace just says "Bad." and means it.

It wasn't just Hillary saying it! A hell of a lot of us in the right wing said that Obama had no experience whatsoever and that just running his campaign was not even remotely enough to qualify him to be President.

So Obama remorse is finally settling in to the Democrat party as even the most die-hard liberals come to realize that Obama is a terrible, terrible President...something that many of us tried to warn them would be the case.

(Love the comments, by the way. Liberals at know, "best" isn't really the right word when you're talking about this kind of sloppy thinking. How about "most typical"? That'll do.)

Vox Day posted what looked like a balanced review of a book at another site, and the author of said book has his thong in a wad over the negative things Vox said.

Oh well. The only thing I can do is avoid those books by "Professor Rape!" and I'm glad of Vox Day's review.

I fell asleep for a couple hours and woke up hungry. I haven't done anything about food yet, though, because I couldn't think of anything that sounded edible. No matter what food I thought of, it sounded horrible.

Now, finally, I'm starting to think that maybe eating something would actually not be nauseating. I guess that means I'm awake now.
