Unfortunately, I Really Am That Nerdy

Among other things, I got another USB-based flash drive for Christmas. I already had a USB 1.0 128 MB device; I got a USB 2.0 256 MB device, better in all respects- and it's SanDisk, rather than some Korean company I've never heard of before, so I'm more inclined to trust my data to it.

It has one really, really annoying habit, though.

The Korean drive indicates that it is active with a little tiny green LED at the end of its translucent casing. The SanDisk drive indicates that it is active with a really fucking bright blue LED that could act as a flashlight, at the end of its transparent casing.

Did I mention that I'm photosensitive? The thing blinks rapidly when it's accessed- and I'm extremely sensitive to blue glowy things such that it gives me a headache to have the damn thing in my field of view.

WAY TO GO, DUMBASS DESIGNERS. Why the fuck do they think I want a flashlight sticking out of my computer? Perhaps it's because it makes the entire casing appear to glow, which I admit is cool, but it hurts. I know I'm not the only one sensitive to that- the brightly blinking thing has to be distracting to everybody. What's so bad about a small discreet LED?

I'd babble at you s'more, but I'm waking up in just over 2 hours to go work for college again. Heh.

Luckily I slept 5:30-midnightish, so I hopefully won't be as dead on my feet as I was today after only 4 hours. (A 5-hour phone conversation ate into my sleeptime.. but it was worth it.)

Poke me later, remind me I wanted to babble about this stuff.

Yay for weird sleep schedules. It's weird how that whenever I have something to do, I can wake up in time for it with no problem- but when I don't, my sleep schedule breaks down. I woke up at 3:30 PM today...
