What if we didn't have to sleep? Would we actually get more done? Or would most people just end up indulging their bad habits more? I just came across an article from Entrepreneur.com about how in the near future, it's likely that we'll be using drugs to stay awake longer and increase our memory. It's certainly an interesting topic, especially considering my interest in psychology and the brain. But what would these drugs do to the brain? Believe me, I often wish for more time to do everything that I want to do, but I don't know if I would take drugs in order to accomplish that. Even if the doctors say there aren't any side effects, everything has side effects. :-)

I finally got Apache, php, and mySQL working on the store computer! I've been wanting to start programming in php, but Apache would just not work on the store computer. After playing with the windows firewall and turning on and off Norton and installing and uninstalling, it's finally working! (Although I'm still not entirely sure why it's working now, because I swear my computer is in the same configuration as when I tried to install it yesterday- but whatever, it works now! And will hopefully keep working!)

Yes, I am a nerd - I am really excited to be programming again! It's been over 2 years since I've really programmed. (I TA'ed for Intro about a year and a half ago, but that was just grading code, not actually writing code.) Not being in school, combined with the fact that Red Zone (the company where all of my programmer friends used to work) is no more and that I'm not dating a programmer, means that I've been without geeky stuff in my life for a while. And yes, I do love my store and all its pink and fluffiness, and I definitely have my feminine side, but frankly I've been missing video games! I need more testosterone in my life!

Last Friday I went up to LA to visit one of my friends who is working at EA now. I got to see his office and had lunch at the EA cafeteria. And I bought some games at the EA gift shop (They have a gift shop!?!?!): Black&White2, The Sims2, and SimCity4. I don't know when I'm going to have time to play them, but they were only 10 bucks, so what the heck! And I renewed my WoW subscription last night, and played a little. It felt good to be back in world (although the updates took like an hour to download and install!) But I'm not sure what server I want to play on, because all of my friends are on different servers and have higher level characters. And frankly I don't know how much time I'll actually be able to play, but I can have fun by myself even if I can't keep up with everyone else's characters.

Ok, back to learning php so that I can get my ecommerce site up and running...
