N64 binge March 4, 2011, 5:19 pm
I don't really know why but I've been playing my N64 a shit ton lately, and I've decided to buy some games for it that I want.

I just got Doom 64 in the mail, this is the first time I've ever played the game on actual hardware and not emulation.. it's much, much better than playing it on an emulator. (music and some effects are kind of fucked up on emulators.)

I also got S-video cables in the mail for it, which on an HDTV looks much sharper than composite. I figured it would look better since everybody in the reviews said as much, but I'm pretty pleased to have my expectations exceeded.

I bought an extension cord for the controller.. and a replacement analog stick.

As anyone who has played a great deal of N64 could tell you, the default stick is prone to wearing out.

I've read some mixed reviews about this stick, but those seem to mostly stem from it not feeling exactly like the old analog and feeling more like a gamecube analog.. which suits me fine, that analog was great.

Gone in a flash. July 1, 2010, 3:03 am

My brother in-law's brother. I didn't know the guy all that well but I'm kind of freaked out about the whole situation.

According to the samaritans who got on the scene in less than 30 seconds after the impact, he was already dead when they got to him.

Yeah, that's all I really have to say about this now.

Another birthday thread, yay? June 10, 2010, 1:44 am
I'm 21.

A relatively boring birthday, oh well, at least I have cake.

Certification exam February 5, 2010, 7:31 pm
So I'm a 20 year old student trying to get my start in the IT industry, and part of that has been the 70-270 MCSE exam. I took it today about 7 hours ago, I was given two hours, and used damn near every minute trying to answer all the questions to the best of my ability.

I failed, by a margin of 2-3 questions. I have to say, it's doing little to cheer me up when I know so many people who find the Microsoft certifications to be embarrassingly easy.

I'm not going to give up, but I'm feeling pretty fucking depressed about it at the moment, especially when I see shit like this:

I realize you should never let these crazy smart kid cases get you down, but seeing that right after failing an exam just chokes me a little bit.

On the bright side, I can try again without it costing me anything.. I'll use this opportunity wisely.. *sigh*..

I really don't know where I'm going, especially with people saying the exams and certifications I'm going through are meaningless and wont help me in the long run. Outside of a low paying dead end job, this is my only option I've been able to turn to.. I don't want to do call center or fast food work for the rest of my life..

Heading up past dry bread June 25, 2009, 1:36 pm
My sister is having her wedding in a somewhat remote area, so we're heading up early with the camper. I'll take some pictures.

So, I'm 20. I've been apart of the Doom community in general since I was 13.
