It's gonna like drinking liquid-awesome.

My Owlnet Account is going down..it's only a matter of time now, so I'm moving all my music and video files to my yahoo thingymajiggy.
oh wait, there's a STUPID limit on the size of the files i can upload (5 MB) ... i guess no videos until i can figure out why they're doing something so retarded. thanks for nothing, YAHOO SBC DSL.

Look at the address bar in your web browser. Does it still say www.owlnet.rice.edu/~ruy? Well, it might be working now but soon the evil goons from Rice University (the very same ones who took away our key to the kitchen and constructed vile, putrid, parking gates) will take away my owlnet webspace. In case you haven't heard the news (what, have you been living under a rock these past few months??!! hahahahah, j/k i'm sorry please don't leave) the new address of my website will be http://ruy2003.tripod.com . If your web browser already has that address in then good--you don't have to do anything. Just sit back, spin in your chair, and keep clicking the REFRESH button over and over like a madman, because one day I'll update this site and it'll be totally new (not like last time where I just changed the background from black to white). Keep in touch and stay tuned!

God bless,
Reubs

BEEF 102: In the Office

so it's been almost 4 weeks of working now, and I still don't know how to fix the copy machine. Why does it say paperjam when there is no paperjam?? One of these days I'm gonna kick this piece of crap out the window.

i've been working for three days at reliant now... but don't ask me to hook you up with extra power or anything because i'm in no position to be asking favors. I haven't even seen my boss yet.. i think it's sad that i have to sleep at around 10:30pm now just to wake up early. I feel like i'm in middle school again.

anyway, my owlnet website could be taken down at any moment. No one knows the day or the hour, except Rice IT. Until then, I'd better use it as much as possible.

today is graduation day. i have such mixed feelings about it because I'm so glad to be done with school finally, but on the other hand I'm going to miss everyone. I've had a great time these 4 years--especially this past year and I owe it all to God for blessing me with such great friends. I wish i could express how much I appreciate each and every one of you. okay... i promised myself i wouldn't cry..........be strong, reuben, be strong.....

I gotta move my site.. it's sure sad to be graduating and losing my free web hosting from Rice. it'll probably go to http://ruy2003.tripod.com unless I can find a better place (that's free). It kinda stinks because the Rice forms won't work anymore (like surveys and beef submissions), I won't have enough space to put up videos anymore, and there're stupid ad-banners all over the place. Any suggestions on what I should do? Read the related beef on this subject.

added a few pics to the senior year pictures page.

Okay, so my real website is back up. In case you didn't know, for the past week I've been playing the assassination game.

This is how it works: everyone who signs up gets a card with a name on it, and you have to shoot that person with a water gun. Then you get that person's target and so on until the game ends or until you get shot. I put up a fake website over the past week to avoid my assassin.

I just got shot tonight at the Coffee House (I should've known better than to attend such a high-profile event) but not before getting 12 kills. It was fun while it lasted, hiding, shooting random people, stalking people, being super paranoid all the time, running around with stocking over your face...ahh, good times.
