Happy DLD Day June 12, 2006, 2:08 am
19 bizhes! O_o;

19 here in Canada is like 21 in the USA...drinking age. <3

I don't intend to go around getting drunk though.

Happy birthday to me?

WHAT THE FUCK March 31, 2006, 12:37 pm
I've never been more personally offended by hockey players.

I can't believe this. That's 3 more hockey players I'm adding to my "Hate List" along with Brett Hull, Todd Bertuzzi, Darian Hatcher, and Chris Chelios.

"OMFG, let's try to cure autism and wipe out some of the most brilliant minds known to man."

If we had no autism, then we would have no Isaac Newton, no Bill Gates, no Albert Einstein, no me, and quite a few people on this site would be gone, too. What's funny is that there's a really really high chance that those hockey players or their wives (or both) are autistic themselves, as it is hereditary.

I wish they had left an email address by that author, because I really want to write an angry letter to them. Perhaps the Athletes Against Autism site would be more helpful...

Man, what bullshit.

A Fish For DLD December 7, 2005, 2:29 pm
I've been thinking about my avatar as of late. I wanted to have something with my Caco-Cola in it, but I figured it's way too large (100x100) and doesn't really suit me. Since a lot of people use cool Fish avatars, I got the idea of building my own Fish, based on my beloved roofles avatar.

I just wanted some opinions on it, because if I do ask for a custom avvy, then I don't want anything shitty. Here's the fruits (or lackthereof) of my labours:

EDIT: Whoops...I guess it should have been in Blogs. My express apologies/thanks to the one who moved this.

DLD Is Buying a New Computer! (like anyone cares) December 5, 2005, 12:48 am
This marks the first post of mine after my two-day stint (thank you SO much for making it short...I swear that mistake was dumb and will not happen again) in Losers and my first in Blogs.

I've been saving for a long time now, and I've decided to get a new compy for Christmas! I've made a list of parts, but not prices (so I have no idea how much this'll cost...but I'm guessing about 3.5-4 grand Canadian) of what I'm going to use. Props to my friend Matt for going through this piece-by-piece (damn/thank him and his 2-Year Computer Systems Degree!) and to Comiclez for shouting at me for 5-10 minutes about keyboards and mice.

I'm going to use this computer mainly for media stuff (uber TV/DVD viewing, music, burning, etc) and DOOM (I'll finally be buying DOOM3, since this puppy will be more than capable of handling it), so bare that in mind as you read my list of parts.

I'm half looking for advice on my selection of parts, as I have not taken any financial steps toward this computer as of yet, so it's not too late to change anything. I don't want to be making a really dumb move on a machine I'll be relying upon for 3-5 years solid.

Without further ado, I present to you, the list of parts for my new computer!

UPDATE: after an hour at a great compy shoppe, I fixed the list and got prices on individual parts. Between tomorrow and Friday I will have a few package deal estimates. Please note all prices are in Canadian funds.

2.8GHz Intel Pentium D-820 Processor 					$325
2.0GB Dual Channel DDR2-533 RAM (4 RAM slots, meaning upgradable) $278
800MHz F-side Bus Intel Pentium-D ATX Motherboard Asus nForce P5ND2-SLI $159
Windows XP Media Centre OS $185
CD/DVD Burner/ROM Combo Drive $69
DVD/CD ROM Drive $59
300GB Hard Drive (20-50GB partitioned for just OS stuff) $179
Creative Labs Sound Blaster Platinum $230
GeForce 7800 GTX-512 Video Card (compatable with TV/Monitors) $900
Logitech G15 Gaming Keyboard $110
Nostromo SpeedPad n52 $46
Edifier 2.1 Stereo Speakers $90
Aspire X-NAVIGATOR ATX Full Tower Case $200
Razer Copperhead High Precision 2000dpi Laser Gaming Mouse Chaos Green $90
Dell UltraSharp 2405FPW 24-inch Wide-Screen LCD Monitor $1300
TOTAL $4220

Making sure it is upgradable of course.

EDIT: I'm quite possibly getting a 3.0GHz AMD Processor and a Gigabyte Motherboard, with room for another Processor (meaning I can get something like a 4-5GHz Dual-Core in addition to my current one a few years down the road), and I'm probably getting a second Hard Drive (120GB) for just my OS and such (kinda like partitioning, except a seperate Hard Drive, so things will run faster), and I'm not getting Media Centre, just a TV Tuner for my Vid card. My RAM may not be DDR2, but plain 'ol DDR instead.

Things are still up in the air as of now.
