High school robots- Check 'em out May 1, 2013, 10:32 pm
Here's a video of the robot my team made for a robotics competition this year. We ended up having a really bad year (only 3 measly silver medals out of 3 possible medals) but we made it to the quarter finals at world's. Our robot is number 67. I was on electrical.
First match @ 12:25


I hate people who can't spell April 21, 2013, 5:16 pm
I have to get it out, so why not on Doomworld? I wish there were real-world grammar Nazis to exterminate all the inferior spellers and those who can't use punctuation or distinguish between too and to. The fact that I have to compete (and sometimes lose) in essays and other writing pieces with others of such a low writing caliber pisses me off. It's the fact that a teacher/professor might give me a lower grade on a paper than one that's riddled with errors. When reading stuff online (guhhh) I get so distracted staring at mistakes like the ones below.

Examples of things that make me want to find people and punch them:

  • haft to
  • might of
  • to vs too
  • there/their/they're (big one)
  • loosing vs losing
  • i
  • its vs it's (big one)
  • wasnt
  • cant
  • your vs you're (big one)
  • adding an apostrophe before the "s" in a plural noun (like pancake's or house's)
  • doubtless I'll add more

I can understand if you just had a random brain fart. It happens to me, too. It's the sheer volume of these errors that disturbs me. Anyone else bothered like me, or am I an old fart for taking offense?

Watch out Germans... February 11, 2013, 6:43 pm
Here I come.

I'm getting interviewed for a foreign exchange program later this week. I'm sort of nervous about it. Searching online hasn't really come up with any specific questions that I may be asked. It'll be through YFU USA and the Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange Program. I'm all concerned over 'Were my essays long enough?' and 'Do I need insurance?' If they emailed asking for an interview that's a good sign, right? Anyway, if this works out it'll be almost as exciting as the day I received DOOM in the mail... Just sayin'.

Wish me luck.

Another Doomworld feature I just learned about... January 6, 2013, 8:14 pm
Apparently everyone who posts blogs has a blog page.

I wonder what other neat features I haven't discovered yet?

I've decided that I DO want a birthday map. December 29, 2012, 1:13 pm
As some of you know, I've been working on a Hide and Seek project. Unfortunately, I've only received one submission, making a total of two maps. Fortunately, I like how it looks so far and would like to continue the project. So, since my birthday passed recently, I was hoping someone (or people) could build a map for me. The more the merrier! The rules are in the first post of that thread.

Birthday avatar request! December 11, 2012, 2:03 pm
So, my B-Day is on the apocalypse, and I just wanted a little something to cherish before the world ends. I was thinking an avatar like mine, only with a soulsphere. Well, how about it?

Someone needs to animate this. November 23, 2012, 8:22 pm

Because I need a new screensaver. I have no idea how this would loop, but it must. Could you imagine having this for your wallpaper, and if you left your computer for a few minutes, it came alive??? That would make me void my bowels almost instantly.

What's this song?!?! October 14, 2012, 3:04 pm
Banged out the tune on my keyboard, but can't remember the name.

Detroit September 30, 2012, 5:29 pm
I recently spent the weekend in Detroit, stayed at the Renaissance Center, and thought I'd post some pics. Most of these are graffiti I saw on a rails-to-trails trail I walked on.


It was pretty cool, but unfortunately there were a ton of abandoned buildings, the size of which sometimes you wouldn't believe. Like opera houses just empty and crumbling. I wish I'd snapped a couple of shots of that too. It's just so empty for being so huge, there are four-lane highways that used to carry thousands of auto workers to and from work that now just support a trickle of cars. You can literally park in the middle of the road in some parts of downtown and not have trouble.

Gayness with my graphics driver [RESOLVED] August 13, 2012, 2:46 pm
So I updated my graphics driver, and I'm pretty sure I deleted my old one, however when I try to open up any game, I get this:
