Okay, the reason I haven't written anything for the last couple of weeks is because my computer died. Basically, the installation of Windows XP, which is inherently a P-OS anyway, somehow managed to get fucked up. What resulted was the disappearance of everything on my machine: all of the photos I've taken in Xinjiang, including the ones from Turpan and the ones I took from the train as I was coming over here; all my MP3s; and the 15 pages of a sci-fi novel I was writing.
I have since done what any sensible geek would do and switched to Linux, RedHat 9, to be exact, which I'm proud to say I'm using at the time of this writing. Unfortunately, there are two important programs, namely the software for my digicam and QQ (an IM program used in China) that aren't available for Linux, so I still have to install the Great Satan (i.e. Windoze) on the last 3 gigs of my hard disk.
In fag-related news, my ex, whom I've decided is a complete and total prick, got into my QQ account and told god-knows-what to my friends, and he refuses to tell me why he did that.
On a happier note, I've met a guy, and we've hit it off pretty well, I think.
