|Supersized Corporations||January 21, 2005, 12:03 pm|
|You know, more and more I've been questioning the whole "so-and-so company is evil" thing... Like, yeah, sure, I guess to some extent many of these companies are evil, but compared to what? Nobody ever points out "Oh, but this mega-corporation is okay." Also, I've noticed that the trend seems to be that as soon as any business becomes big enough, it's automatically labelled as evil. Microsoft, EA, McDonalds, Wal-Mart, etc... Maybe this is because their evilness put them on top, or maybe it's because it's at that point that people begin to notice it. Not that I in any way condone their behavior, but it seems suspicious that the biggest ones are always the ones singled out for attacks. To me it appears that the problem is with the system, not those who use it to their advantage, but I don't know.|
|AOL rules with an iron fist||December 8, 2004, 10:22 am|
|So this morning, I wake up, I try to sign onto AIM, only to find out that my account has been terminated. This really sucks! I have no idea why, I received no warnings or anything... I just woke up to find my account was gone. I am so incredibly pissed right now. I mean, sure, if I had done something, it would be understandable, but even then, I would appreciate at least some sort of explanation. But nooooooooo, we can't do that. We are the all-powerful AOL. Bow down before us, bitch! Anyways, I had to go get a new SN this morning (way to go, AOL - if I'm such a troublemaker, why allow me to register a new SN from the same computer with the same e-mail address?). I'm just really upset because I really loved that SN, and it's a big hassle to go add everybody to your new buddy list and to let everybody know that you've changed SNs. ARGH!!!!!!!!!!!|
|I'm going away for a while||May 8, 2004, 3:43 pm|
|Well, that's it, another year of college down the tube. Because my computer has been safely packed away for the summer, and because we don't have Internet access at home, I may not be posting here for a while. Gosh, I hope I don't miss something marvelous such as Action Doom's release. That would make me very sad. Anyways, hopefully, I'll devote my free time to finishing my latest project, the E1M1 remake I've been working on. If I do, though, I may have to wait until this fall to release it. Well, farewell everyone.|
|What the hell is wrong with some people?||April 8, 2004, 8:16 am|
|God, don't newbies just piss you off? I'm not going to name names, to avoid starting any fights or something, but some people are just so dense. You know, the kind of person who wants to start a 32-level megawad to learn mapping, or something like that. Really, and the worst part is, people like that don't seem to respond to anything. No matter how many times you tell them what they want to do is impossible, no matter how many times you tell them their levels suck, they'll continue to spew garbage forth across the countryside and go "OMG thsi noo lvel of mine rox!!!1111" How the hell can one be so dense as to not even realize that his mapping skills are absolutely crap, and that he needs to improve them? Some people... I just wanna rip their testicles off with my bare hands, just to ensure that they never reproduce.|
|Am I the only one that thinks...||March 19, 2004, 6:09 pm|
|...that they should do a remake of Chex Quest with the Doom 3 engine? Give it out with cereal and everying? Personally, I think if they did this, my life would be complete. *drools at though of Chex Quest in Doom 3 engine*|
|F***ING FOX!!!||December 11, 2003, 3:17 pm|
|Okay, that's it!!! I've freakin' had it!!! It's bad enough that every time I go to Doomworld, I have to be bombarded with gigantic shockwave ads which are loud and EXTREMELY annoying, but stupid retards at Fox, their ad for "Stuck on You" crashes IE every single freakin' time it comes up. Those freakin' bastards will die a slow and painful death!!! ARGH!!!! WHAT IS WRONG WITH THOSE BRAINDEAD MORONS!!!|
|Smiley Dialects||December 2, 2003, 7:50 am|
Hey, has anyone noticed this before? There seem to be several different dialects of smiley spreading over the Internet. I personally find this extremely fascinating, and a subject worth studying. Well. anyways, I know of at least three. Does anyone know any more? Here are the three I know of.
First, you have your standard smileys.
:) :( :D :O
Then, you have your big-eyed variant.
=) =( =D =O
Finally, there's the ever popular (name escapes me at the moment).
^_^ -_- O.O
So yeah... Okay, this is totally dorky, but I honestly don't care.
|OMG!!! Geekmarine comic!!!||November 20, 2003, 9:17 pm|
Ha!!! I mock you people and your incessant comic making! Therefore, I've decided to make one of my own!!! MWAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Unfortunately, thanks to Geoshitties I can't directly link to it. God I hate Geoshitties.
Anyways, the link is http://www.geocities.com/great_wise_yoda/comic.htm
|God-danged stupid copy protection||November 4, 2003, 9:47 am|
|Goshdarnit, I hate technology. Like the whole thing with CD Keys. Okay, so I just found out that I still need the CD Key for Aliens vs. Predator 2 to play online, and I don't frickin' have it. I haven't even seen the case in God knows how long, and anyways, it's at home and I'm not. This just compounds my frustration at actually having a copy of Half-Life to which I lost the CD Key years ago. What the hell? Why can't having the actual, physical CD in the drive be enough? I am not about to buy another copy of both of these games because the game makers feel the need to punish me for crimes that other people commit. See, this just shows the evils of copy protection. It's the legitimate users who are really hurt by it. God, I could just strangle whoever thought up this crap. I just don't get it. I have the CD, that should be enough. Couldn't they print the CD Key on the label or something? That would make a helluva lot more sense than this crap.|
|State of my life||October 18, 2003, 9:46 pm|
Well, this is just peachy. Who'd of thought that so much would change so quickly? So, Friday night was the QU dance here at Macalester (QU = Queer Union). I originally wasn't planning to go, but I ended up being dragged down there. I did get to wear drag, though, so it was a bit fun, nonetheless. Okay, so QU is this massive orgy of sex and alcohol, centered around the dance itself. Well, I went, the music sucked, I don't drink, and I didn't get any, so it was no fun. So, we leave, and my friends all decide to get drunk, so I clear out, 'cause I hate drunks. Well, I had a revelation that night. My friends do not need me. I'm a tag-along. Sure, they like me, but if I'm not there, they don't miss me. So therefore, I've decided to drop them and move on. This probably sounds a bit extreme, but I feel it has to be done. I'm not putting up with this sham-friendship crap anymore. It's hurtful to my self-esteem, for one thing. I had this same problem in high school, by the way. Ugh, I thought after I had dealt with that, I'd never have that happen again. Oh well.
So, yeah, I'm kind of friendless for the moment, but I do have a couple of people left here that I can still call my friends. This is a rather odd state of affairs. I mean, the group isn't at all aware of this yet, and I doubt they'd understand or care if they did know. I honestly don't know what I'm going to do at this point, but I've got a start at least. God, I'm so melodramatic.
Anyways, I've gotten in contact with one of my old friends from home, and I think at this point she's the only thing keeping me sane. Speaking of which, I desperately want to e-mail another friend from back home, but I cannot seem to be able to write anything. It's like I have absolutely nothing to say. The thing is, last year, I could write her five-page e-mails without even thinking about it. Now I just seem to have a horrible case of writer's block.
One odd thing, for QU I got my nails painted, and they still are, and I actually like it. They're like this shiny bronze-ish gold-ish color, and I just love how shiny they are. Okay, I have got to stop obsessing over my nails.
Finally, as usual, I have the lack of girlfriend issue. Part of the problem is I can't imagine there being some girl out there who would actually want to go out with me. I have plenty of friends who are girls, but no girlfriends. Oh well, it really isn't bothering me as much as usual at the moment. Now I'm gonna go off and contemplate my weird existance.
