I hate computers

On top of packing and moving, I’m having to deal with DNS and server issues for the 13(ish) domains that I host (my friends’ domains that I host for free). I don’t mind doing it, but it’s starting to kill me.

And, I’m either still jetlagged, or I’m suffering from mild insomnia. Oh, and I can’t see because I haven’t had my contact lenses in for a week (having custom wavefront on Friday). Speaking of custom wavefront, all sorts of people around me are emerging who have had Lasik! And I never even knew.

Blurry, frazzled, and immersed in tangled bits,
Eric

    I noticed the WP dns problems a day (or two?) ago. I had the same problem over the weekend myself, though I doubt many people noticed mine ;)

    The lasik should be kickass for you! Now we gotta go skydiving ;)

    I had lasik or lasek .. i forget the differnce .. best thing i have ever done .. I got it done in the UK but almost got it done in Canada cause the exchange rate makes it so damn cheap.
    So happy with the results went from -2.25 in both eyes to 20-10 and 20-15 in my eyes .. better than average .. it’s awesome.

    I was considering lasik a while ago, but my medschool friends convinced me not to do it. There aren’t any long-term case studies (obviously), and none of the doctors we know at the hospital have had it done…

    Still, it’s tempting to think of being able to wake up in the morning and seeing perfectly without having to reach for contacts or glasses…

    I had lasik done over 3 years ago, and it’s the best thing I’ve ever done too. Expensive, yes, but wow, it makes such a difference. As far as the long-term studies go, laser surgery has been done for over 10 years, and the RK surgery has been done for even longer, so there’s actually pretty good longterm data (just take a gander of the stuff on PubMed). I recommend it to everyone I know… Oh, and my eyes went from about -6.25 in both eyes and now I’m 20/20. :)

  • faisal

    i had wavefront a couple of months ago. it’s awesome! from -6.50 one day to reading 20/15 the next day. i highly recommend dr. manche at stanford.

    I’m sitting here in the lobby of Silicon Valley Laser Eye Center, and there are photos on the wall of Dr. Kawesch with: Conan O’Brien, Danny Devito, Jerry seinfeld, Jay Leno, Tom Hanks (in the illustrious spot next to the restroom) and lots of famous sports people (I’m clueless). Of course, just because he has photographs of himself with a bunch of famous people doesn’t mean that he did their surgeries…

    And, there are tons of framed underwater photos on the wall. I guess he’s an underwater guy, which is always cool. :)

    I’m sorry to hear about all the DNS issues, if there is anything we can do to help, please put in a ticket.
