Frog Wizard

New CD.

I just bought a new copy of Soundgarden's Badmotorfinger, since mine disappeared a while back. I'd forgotten how awesome this disk really is.

Kim Thayil kicks my ass.

I also picked up a Black Crowes boxed set. It was $40 and included 4 CDs, bonus tracks, and a bonus EP. I figure I can't buy the CD's normally for that price, so I might as well.

Black Crowes are one of those interesting cases of a band where I'm a really big fan of them, but for some reason or another, I don't have any of their albums. I'm not really sure why, since I've liked them since I first heard them. . . I guess I just never got 'round to it.

Oh, well. Problem solved now. ;-)

Net connection hosed. . .

Hrm, I'm not sure what's going on, but my net connection seems pretty hosed. Pings out are dropping 50%+ packets, although the ones that are getting through are showing reasonable ping times. The huge packet loss is making it almost impossible to do anything, though.

Any web page more than 2K in size is having it's connection thrashed, and I'm not getting anything. Attempts to ssh are falling over and harfing, too.

I'd planned on writing up a couple of big posts, on the concert July 3rd, a few movies I've seen recently, etc. . . but I think I might just call it a night and go to bed, now. This is too annoying.
