PETA asks Phish to change their name to 'Sea Kitten'.PETA asks Phish to change their name to 'Sea Kitten'.

This can't possibly be for real, but then again it is PETA after all so who knows.

Triumph the Insult Comic Dog visits Bonnaroo.Triumph the Insult Comic Dog visits Bonnaroo.

Here in Manchester, Tennessee literally thousands of pungent hippies gather once a year. For many Bonnaroo is a chance to have four days of peace, love, and music to break up the other 361 days of unemployment.

Daily Grind: Slightly accomplished

Name: Vin (aka glm fanboy)
How Vin feels today: Slightly accomplished @ 9:04:00 AM
What Vin really wants today: To mark that this is the first official new daily grind post of GeekLikeMe 4.0. Also state that aforementioned daily grind is now once again a weekday thing - hooray. Oh, and also to continue fixing various bugs with recently launched new version of this site.

Music Stuck in Head: Glory Days / Bruce Springsteen
Mostly because I'm curious to hear how it sounds with Phish as the backup band.

Stuff to do today:

  • Figure out a way to get more sleep
  • Update 'potentially related posts' feature on content pages, group posts together by date rather than list them out
  • Modify XML feeds
  • Figure out if pinging blog services really makes any difference at all
  • Build an auto-pinger just for good measure
  • Move on to less nerdy topics...
  • Pre-order the new Monkey Island games from Telltale at some point before July 6th
  • Yes, Monkey Island: click here for more info
  • Also get credit card ready to purchase Sam & Max for XBLA
  • I heart Telltale Games

Daily Grind: Overworked

Name: Vin (aka not at hampton)
How Vin feels today: Overworked @ 3:51:00 PM
What Vin really wants today: To not be at work and to continue following on all the Phish updates coming out of Hampton.

Music Stuck in Head: The Cropper / Medeski, Scofield, Martin & Wood
This album was a little bit different from what I was expecting. If you dug A Go Go, this one may need some time to sink in.

Stuff to do today:

  • Debate going out to Best Buy to pick up the Clifford Ball box set
  • Wait on this since there will be plenty to listen to tomorrow what with the band is giving out the mp3s for free
  • Move on to other topics
  • Figure out how to solve redesign problem involving media naming conventions for database ids that don't exist yet
  • Keep a running tab of database ids (autonumber) in separate table
  • Above item doesn't work and can be easily broken if a record is deleted thus causing the number to be out of sync
  • Blllllaaaaaargggggh
  • Use IDENTITY to properly assign id to media after insert to database has been made
  • Problem is that most media upload scripts use form collection that puts the image in FIRST so getting the IDENTITY of a record that doesn't exist yet is not possible
  • Move on to way (way) less geekier topics
  • ...
  • ...
  • ...
  • Can't think of anything
  • Finish up work and go home
