|Hockey Riot||June 16, 2011, 12:30 am|
So Vancouver Canucks don't win the Stanley Cup and riots breaks out. Rejects drunk and/or under influence of drugs decide it would be cool to recreate '94. So they riot, start fights, and set shit on fire. I'm glad that my city could be so well represented by complete morons. Yeah it's sarcasm, I will be so melodramatic so as to point it out. My friend has been trapped inside of his work with 60 other people because of tear gas flooding the street. Things are real ugly... glad I could flee when I could. I must be getting old, I'm loathing all the loser morons doing a gross disservice to the city.

14 down, 2 more courses to go. 5 weeks left then first year is done.
It's a crazy ride.
|End of Break||March 20, 2011, 7:49 pm|
My week of spring break comes to a close. Come Monday it's back to the grind of focus, hardwork, time management, and studying. And not playing Doom during lecture. It happened only once. Yet it was once too many. Was nice being able to relax for the most part during this week. Got a little bit of derp work in as well.
Monday and Wednesday did extra derp. Monday was what will probably be one of the last few episodes of that Smallvile series. Wednesday was on this series Hellcats which is produced by dude that plays superman on Smallville. Essentially its cheerleaders cheering about stuff which appeals to the teenage girl demographic, and men that enjoy shortskirts.
Been progressing well in my program. Been through 10 courses thus far, 6 more to go. Then 1st year comes to it's conclusion. If things really go well I might be working for the school during the summer. There will be alot of competition from other students, in spite of there being 8 positions needed. Much rather do that than extra derp for the summer.
I've also made a frivolous purchase of something I don't really need, but wanted. But seeing as my birthday is fast approaching, it's kind of a self gift: It's a new computer case. They finally started selling this model in North America. Besides all the practical features, it glows like Tron. Now I can be a real toolbag. Essentially the same case but I got the black model:
Still have some Doom stuff in the wing, including something that should've been finished months ago but I've either been too busy, or when there's an opportunity, too lazy.
tl dr; Life's on track and I'm feeling great.
|Never Give a Hobo Peanuts||August 19, 2010, 10:23 pm|
Yesterday I was enroute to visit a friend downtown. Beggars are a typical site, especially in high volume pedestrian areas. Once in a while I do I feel inclined to give 'em a quarter or whatever. So this bum was on his kness holding a crude cardboard sign which read "Food?" On the ground was an apple and some change. I decided to give him a bag of honey roasted peanuts I had in my pocket.
Then he was all like "HEY! I CAN'T EAT THESE!" and then he threw the bag. At first I thought, "Wow what an asshole." Then I thought, "He must be allergic to peanuts." So moral of pointless blog posting, "Never give a hobo peanuts."
|RAM Musing||August 10, 2010, 3:22 pm|
tl dr; Little difference between 800mhz and 1066mhz RAM timings.
So what's the difference between running my DDR2 RAM at 800mhz VS 1066mhz? Hardly anything at all.
Super Pi @ 1 million: 23 seconds for both speeds.
3DMark @ 800: 14040
3DMark @ 1066: 14073
Nothing to scream about. I'm Currently running 2x2GB modules. I have an additional set of 2X2GB modules that I removed because I couldn't get them stable @ 1066. I realize now that the difference is negligible. I could've just left the modules in and clocked all 8GB at 800mhz and enjoy the stability.

tl dr; Was at a lake, life shit.
Extended Novel Edition:
Yesterday I got back from Paska Lake. Was a great weekend. Paska is an Aboriginal name or word of sorts. It's also means shit in Finnish. Which is also how you can tell the Finnish Canadian Hunting and Fishing Club had a sense of humor when they chose a cabin there.
A friend of my brother is in the club and he booked it for his 30th birthday. Invited a bunch of people. Was good times. Only so many could stay in the cabin so there was a tent city setup around it. There was also a sauna, which complimented swimming in the cold water of the lake. The lake itself was relatively paska. Had fish in it, but it was pretty small, and couldn't have been deeper than 18 Feet at it's deepest point.
Went out on the rowboat, no luck in scoring fish.
In other news I got my transcript from my Math course. I failed it miserably the first time around and just barely got what I needed the second time around. I'm quite retarded when it comes to Math; though residents of Doomworld will likely argue I'm just plain retarded. The purpose was so I can take this Computer Information Systems Technician course. With hopes of achieving something beyond the realm of mediocrity careerwise. This in the face of "The sky is falling, IT is a dead sector, you've better luck selling your ass on craigslist" level of cynicism.
I've also a pile Doom maps, that are more or less unfinished turds. I'm unsure of what to do with them aside from the obvious notion of completing them. I'm somewhat tempted to send them off to that great Recycling Bin in the sky.
|Heathen Fest||November 26, 2009, 5:14 am|
It's been ages since I did a blah blah blah about a metal show I went to.
-Alestorm was fuckin incredible. Their vocalist, I've never seen a more shitfaced Scotsman in my life. He was crowd surfing briefly during Eluveitie whilst wielding a 26'er of Jack Daniels.
-The vocalist of Belphegor sounds exactly like the Cookie Monster when he talks in between songs. Which is ultra lulzy, because he's attempting to sound all demonic/evil/Satanic.
-Sexy bartender gave me her email address. :D
-Eluveitie were amazing live. Had a brief chit chat after the show with the ladies of the group. They happened to step out for a smoke. Asked them about the meaning of Inis Mona. Supposed to be some teeny island where Druids would receive their training.
-Friends who rent a limo just to go to a metal show, are good friends to have.
|Things that have happened||June 11, 2009, 2:42 am|
Yeah the wiring job looks like shit. I look at it this way. No side window, so I don't care what it looks like once the panel is put back on. The top exhaust was red LED so I removed the two black stock fans and added Red LED fans thoughout. They photograph kinda orange but look very red in person. Quick spec lowdown: AMD 940 BE, 512mb 4870, 4GB DDR2 1066 RAM.
2.Girlfriend called it quits and I went into a period of self wallowing.
3. Met a chick through a platonic female friend. She's expressed interest in me and invited me out to her party.
4. Got back into the habit of going to the gym. The endorphin release is great. Try it sometime.
5. Going to try welding. A friend is being gracious enough to give me a crash course in it. Going to see how I like it and if I could handle doing it professionally.
|Of Headaches and Humility.||March 30, 2009, 11:47 am|
As you've probably learned by now my friends decided to get me extremely drunk for my birthday. Fed me Crown Royal non stop to the point of no return. It was too late by the time they realized I had to be cut off. My tolerance is not what it used to be. I loathe my former days of excessive drinking. Last night was just a real affirmation of that. It serves no function aside from raging idiocy.
I can't yield anything positive from that state of consciousness. For the most part I've cut my drinking to a bare minimum. Even then when I do I'll have a couple at most. Last night was ridiculous. There's no humor in it.
At least any for me personally. It's quite pathetic and I'm glad that I've developed enough to realize it in it's true capacity. I currently have alot of positive things going for me, so that's where my focus has been centered. That induced idiocy never has and never will serve me as a positive outlet for anything.
|TWENTY F#CKING FOUR||March 30, 2009, 4:21 am|
There's is more than the typical shit to reflect that I turn 24. My GF told me today, "I'm so glad that your mother got so horny that she was willing to shit you out of her vagina!"
Easily the most complementing I've ever heard a chick talking about me ever in any respect.
