Worked kinda sorta. I at least got some programming done on cronparse.py before I could overcome my laziness enough to switch the wireless back on, switch to screen 1, remove the dhcpcd pid file, and run dhcpcd wlan0.

Got another of the same rejections from Starbucks:

So how do I appeal? How do I know this isn't age discrimination? Damned right my qualifications are impressive, in fact there's probably nobody better for the job than I.

Installed the BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) screensaver on my GNU/Linux/KDE system. You ever notice that the address given is F0AD:42494C4C? Hmm, 0x42 is B... Let's go to my Python prompt...

>>> "\x42\x49\x4c\x4c"

Oh, that's nice. Fuck off and die, Bill.
