Captain’s log: heading 118
Have arrived back at school. Penn 2, though it has lost over half it’s members, continues to rock.
My new roommate, Andy, bears a somewhat uncanny resemblance to one of my best friends back home, Danny. Of course, they act absolutely nothing alike.
LetNet Wireless has improved drastically, in part because it now has to play nice with Windows Vista. Last semester, it took me several weeks of tweaking to obtain a connection that was dropped after 30 seconds. Last night, I connected in about 30 seconds with the graphical wireless configuration tool Wicd and Ubuntu Linux 7.04. Then I spent twenty minutes or so trying to get le XP-using RA online. I’d say it’s an improvement.
The Freshmen are interesting. It’s rather strange to be regarded as an alpha male. We walk to Saga or chapel, and they all sort of fall in behind Jr., Tim, and myself. Also, I haven’t really seen much of a few of them. It might have something to do with Jr.’s description of my military experience in Vietnam (?!) and the following conversation:
Cory: So, James, I hear you went to boot camp. How was that?
James: Eh, not so good. Two people died. I killed them. With my thumb.
I can’t imagine why they would be avoiding me.
