On a more personal note...

Quickly, before I go to bed (and hopefully to sleep):

I'm really missing having evenings off. I didn't think I would, but I am. I'm having a hard time getting up even when I've gotten a proper amount of sleep. I have no real appetite, but I do make myself eat... when I remember. Symptoms of depression, I know. I'm going to see if I can manage to force myself up before eight hours (sleep-dep is a natural SRI), do some DDR/ITG (for the dopamine), and eat a proper breakfast. We'll see how that goes.

On the electronics front, I finally bought an external HDD. It's a 250GB USB connectable, so it's easy to use. I figured out that if anything happens to my laptop, I lose everything pretty much. Of course, my internal HDD is onoly 80GB, so I'm thinking I have a lot of room for making more stuff... :) I also bought a thing that'll let me record from an analog source (like TiVo outputs) and burn to DVD or get nice crisp screencaps for iconing or wallpaper-making. It's not working the best yet, but I have to figure out the settings my computer can handle. I also bought Eddie Izzard's specials Glorious and Definite Article. I did check that they were Zone 1, since they used to be only for release in the UK. So, I should watch those sometime... yeah.

Well, I'm off to bed. Wish me luck.

Keeping a schedule not in line with the sunshine can also add to depression. I don't know what your shift is, but if you can do more of your sleeping when it's dark out and more of your awake time when it's light out, that may help. In addition to sleeping, eating, and exercising properly, of course.

I just watched Glorious, it's fabulous. As for the sleep thing, you might try some Valerian root or Melatonin. They really helped me when I was working nights. I'll keep my fingers crossed that you'll find something that works. *HUGS*

Good luck!
Your new electronics sound neat! 250 GB for an external HD sounds pretty good, hopefully you don't fill it too fast ;)
The analog source gadget sound cool, does it come with software or does it use your existing software?

It comes with capture software. I can even put it in a format for iPods and PSPs.
