Calculators with subwoofers

At The Hive we have 17 awesome, top-of-the-line PCs. They all have 19 inch NEC Monitors (Flat CRT), 2000+ AMD Athlon XP Processors, GeForce4 TI4200 128MB DDR Video Cards, ASUS Motherboards, and subwoofers and satellites with each PC. So the other day Lori (Laser Assault owner, Jim's wife) was using one of our PCs to take care of some accounting and billing for her business. She came up to us at the front desk and asked if we had a calculator.

The response was simply - we don't have any hand calculators. But we do have 17 very nice calculators. Each one has a 19 inch flat screen and comes with a subwoofer.

Every time you make a calculation it goes KABOOOOOM!!! Now that's what I call math.

Jason drove up to Provo and is staying at my place to work on eRentPayer with me. We have a few more features that need to be added (e.g. a reporting module) and there were a few bugs to fix. (Ok, a lot of bugs that needed to be fixed) We've already resolved most of them. We'll have this beast up and running code-complete by the end of the weekend, I think.

Last night Rachel took me to see the BYU Women's Choir perform at the De Jong Theatre in the HFAC. That was nice of her to get me tickets. I love going to formal events like that every now and then. The choir sounded great. I prefer a fuller choir, like a choir with bass, but I have to admit - they sounded like angels. It was kind of funny because literally every single member of the choir, which is at least 100 girls, was fair-skinned and blonde. A few had slightly darker hair, but they were all white as snow. If they have an ethnically diverse person join the choir, she is going to stick out like a sore thumb during performances.

Afterwards, we met up with Jason and Katie at Denny's for dinner and then Rachel and I went to Wal-Mart because I had to buy sheets, pillows, towels, silverware, food, etc for my house. So far, I've been living with one plate, one bowl, a cup, a fork, a knife, and a spoon. People were always making fun of me because I have such a nice place, but then I have nothing in it!
