Hey, I think I finally managed to buy a bag of crap thanks to an April Fool's joke scaring people off... long as the secret coupon doesn't turn out to be an April Fool's joke as well.

I actually had to do this twice...the first time for some reason it didn't accept my card details...NEVER would have been able to try twice with a "real" BOC.

I just came very, very close to succeeding in ordering one of Woot's random bags of crap. These things are so popular their server all but crashes every time they show up. I finally remembered my password, logged in, switched the quantity to 3 (as suggested), entered my credit card details, hit submit (all with long waits in between as the server struggles to keep up)...then..."we're sorry, this item is no longer in stock". D'oh!

Okay, so after a long wait, my site is back up. Thanks a fricken' lot, Rogers, for disabling your own webhosting and telling us all to start over on GeoCities with our email address as the URL. Not. Gonna. Happen.

Changes may come, but I think this is pretty close to my final layout.

If anyone wants to buy me stuff, my birthday's on July 16th and my wishlist is here.

So I'm sitting here bored and click on one of those "free IQ test" banner ads...apparently:

"We also compared your answers with others who have taken the test. According to the sorts of questions you got correct, we can tell your Intellectual Type is a Visionary Philosopher.

This means you are highly intelligent and have a powerful mix of skills and insight that can be applied in a variety of different ways. Like Plato, your exceptional math and verbal skills make you very adept at explaining things to others — and at anticipating and predicting patterns."

And of course...

"Find out more about your unique intellectual strengths in your personalized 15-page IQ report. It's ready right now!"

And it's only $9.95! So much for my free IQ test...
