IM formatting test

Sam: This is a test.
World: A test?
Sam: Yes.
Sam: A Test.
World: What are you testing?
Sam: I’m testing the automatic colorization of IM logs.
World: The hell you say??
Sam: I wrote some code for my LiveJournal S2 style that should automatically format any entry tagged “chat”.
World: But I don’t see any colors?
Sam: If you’re viewing this through your friends page, this text should look normal.
Sam: But, if you view it from www.c99.org or c99koder.livejournal.com, it should look all pretty.
World: Hey! That’s pretty cool!

We had our first Wii-related injury last night — Brian was standing too close behind me while I was playing Wii bowling, and I ended up hitting him in the nuts with the controller.

He learned the hard way not to stand behind people that are bowling 😛
