okay. i'm putting it out there for possible tech geeks who might be reading this. i have a problem. i switched to my roommate's high speed internet this weekend but i kept an account opened with my dialup service because i wanted to keep the email address i've had for 8 years (too many useful friends, services, and stores have that address in their file). but emails i now send through that account bounce back. i suspect it has something to do with the SMTP server at my dialup service and connecting with an outside source. (btw, i do receive emails fine, it's the outgoing mail that bounces back.) i sent an email to the dialup service this morning but i'm hoping some of you can have a quicker answer. huge thanks :)

forget it. they answered me and, lo and behold, they were right and i didn't need 5 hours of wrangling to correct the matter. it was done in a matter of minutes. yay! thanks for reading this now pointless entry, though :) have a good day.

okay. second problem -- my roommate's computer screen is being affected my a magnetic field, which is possibly coming from inside the wall behind it. is there a cheap way to counter this? if not we'll switch his desk to another wall but we wanted to know before starting on that.

hey, ho. slow day today. lots of mix'n'match updates, as you can see.
i just came back from running (iPod+sunshine+no humidity=heaven). earlier, the ex-roommate came over for lunch. her first time back since the new roommate moved in and it's not her apartment anymore (although, i do feel she's still part of it, even with the new roommate). i don't think it felt as strange as she thought it would. oh, saturday we're gona take advantage of my mom's pool. her boyfriend and her are leaving for a two-week vacation. yay. even though i have no money left (payday's tonight at midnight), this afternoon i went out and got some groceries, and these:

BILLY CORGAN - THEFUTUREEMBRACE
FOO FIGHTERS - In Your Honor

Billy's album was a no-brainer but the Foo's wasn't an obvious one. but i've liked the first single from the start, i love me some Dave drumming, and i very much liked what i heard from the second/acoustic disc so i got it.
