  2. When I get that benz imma pull up in the rain and I'm gonna say "you wouldn't wait for me"

  3. Today
  4. Happiness is only real when shared.

  5. Well, I’m on Vero as Dylan Wayne Sanchez. It’s free for life for the first million people, and I do like free stuff, so hey.

  6. Taking the Cambridge Proficiency Exam (that's C2 level) on the 10th of March. The speaking part of it is on the 11th -- my birthday! 

    If I do pass it, I'll have a certificate that will allow me to teach English or something, and that's apparently gonna be a handy source of income when I go to uni. Nice birthday present eh???

     

    Anyway, this exam comprises things that are actually quite difficult (but definitely possible). 

     

    E.g. you have to KNOW and be able to use all those obscure and uncommon English constructions. I'm having quite a struggle with the inverted stuff a-la "Little did I know" in particular. I mean ffs who speaks like that??? aah damn!

     

    Also, punctuation. Sweet Jesus Christ almighty. That's what I get for neglecting it in my internet posting, someone might say (and he'd be right ayy lmao), but English doesn't seem to have very definite rules for this kind of stuff. Words like "which" can be used in constructions that both include a comma and do not, for instance.

     

    Moreover, the various forms of essays (e.g. proposal, review, report OH MY GOD) are damn hard as well. There's a particular structure of your work that should be honoured (Introduction --> point 1 --> point 2 --> conclusion, that kind of stuff), also stylistic things such as vocabulary, and that's tedious to remember. Don't forget to memorise all the linking words as well!

     

    TAKING ALL OF THE AFOREMENTIONED INTO CONSIDERATION wish me luck, right??? This is gonna be so fun!!

      It's a old shot of what was essentially a speedmap for a UAC Ultra mini episode I was working on. It no longer exists because the episode has been re-purposed, unless the person I invited to contribute to it still has a copy.

       

      I have a deletion complex problem. Jimmy gives me Hell for it and he's not wrong.

  10. error: eris.exe has stopped working

     

  11. How do I place an object in Doom Builder or GZdoom Builder without the item dialog coming up after placing each item? That way I could place trees more rapidly. Thanks.

      Copy-paste is one of solutions.

  13. Last week
  14. I wish there were more Red Robin locations in Canada. I've always wanted to try them.

  15. What a day it has been...

     

    I was with my dad in vacation, visiting some of our family. At 6:30 AM we were awake and ready to go back home.

     

    The travel was going according to the plan... until we ran into a little issue: the train that we had to take to go to the countryside where our home is, wasn't scheduled to leave today... and we didn't know... and there isn't any other way to get there without a car (which we don't have).

     

    But! My grandmother has a house in the city! She would surely let us stay there until tomorrow! No,  she's an asshole and basically told us to fuck off.

     

    Then the little issue turned into a big issue.

     

    Thankfully my other grandma (which isn't an asshole) gave my dad some money to buy me shoes for school, so we used that money to get a room in a freaking bar (GG shoes). Only one room was left, and it was one with a two-seater bed, so at the very least it won't be a torture for us to sleep on it.

     

    There was a TV, so we turned it on. Only one channel was available, probably controlled by the owner. We were watching some documentary thing, and it suddenly changes to a porn movie. We were like lol wtf, my dad turned it off and then I realize... it was the only room left... and it had a two-seater bed... oh...

     

    Then we just laughed. Who know what kind of shit the guy is imagining, but it's not our problem, really. I'm just thankful that we had the money to get a place to stay, I'm not sure what we would've done otherwise.

  16. fcount <- read.csv("file.csv", header=TRUE, sep=",")
    attach(fcount)
    data <- fcount[order(friends)]
    plot(data)
    lines(data)

    Doing some R thing

     

    trying to sort a csv file with username as x-axis and friend count as y-axis, graph looks like tangled rope, I need it to be a curved line that exponentially grows. How do I sort this so username with lowest friend count is furthest left?

      Nevermind I figured it out.

  17. Extended doom mechanics do occasionally lend to fun moments, sometimes. Playing a map in a port where live monsters can be pushed off dropoffs, a chaingunner pissed off a rev and the rev proceeds to run up to him and punch him off the ledge. heh

  18. If the Eternity Engine will fully support Heretic also with demo recording support, I will throw out the old version of Crispy Doom in the bin. There is some kind of conspiracy against Heretic, in order not to develop a full-fledged limit-removing port.

  19. Um, help.

      What do you need help with? Did you at least go to therapy?

      I don't think anyone on here would want to see it and no, not yet I go to therapy on Wednesday this week.

      Well, don't ask for help if you don't want to be helped, then.

      I posted this at 6am I think this morning and I had no sleep and of course I was tired. Sorry.

  21. Now I'm back, after a pause from the Internet.

  22. Finally, Gerardo194 is coooooooooome back!!!! 

    After months of hard fighting in space, I've returned home on a well-earned leave, now I wonder what's been happening on Earth while I was battling evil unleashed!!!! 

    Love you friends!

  23. Do you still exclusively only use Doom95?

  24. THE NEIGHBORS

    I think I've had these neighbors the past 2+ years, its tough to say. Its 3 guys, 1 girl and a baby. That's what I could tell looking at the house. I don't really know my neighbors, any of them. I assume most people think no one lives in my house since I only go out at night.

     

    Anyway, these neighbors have a lot of Saturday parties with illegal fireworks. To be fair the fireworks don't go up after 9 pm, but they light up the night sky and in a small town, its obvious who is shooting off the only fireworks in the area, so its amazing the police haven't visited.

     

    About once a month someone drives a motorcycle around their front lawn at midnight or 1 AM. I'm normally awake, so it doesn't anger me, but I can only imagine what the other neighbors must feel. Their front lawn is dwindling. A previous owner paved an extension to their driveway for a 6 car parking lot. Then these neighbors paved over a good portion of their lawn to make the parking lot even bigger. I assume for their parties.

     

    Even with the parking lots, they park near the road, away from the house, maybe that's a winter thing, if it snows they want to be close to the road... but with that said they have a few vehicles, 4 wheelers and trucks with snow plows on them.

     

    If you think a 6 car parking lot is big, our other neighbor had previously ran a business out of their home, they turned a home with a 2 car garage into a 6 car garage. Then... they built a warehouse in the back for even more vehicles. The warehouse was behind the 6 car garage extension and it was for big trucks that couldn't drive through or around the 6 car garage, so instead it had a driveway AROUND the house. Imagine a house with a pavement moat. I'm amazed the town let them get away with that. That's another story.

     

    So back to the problem neighbors...

     

    For 3 months they decided to just leave the curtains open to their front room. I could see through their house, they had knocked down a wall in the center that I remember being there, and I could just see through behind the house. Imagine a box car with both doors open. It was just strange they didn't have their curtains closed for 3 months no matter what. Maybe they were getting replaced, but would it take 3 months? Plus its winter.

     

    Last year at around this time the female living over there came over to my house. She brought a mouse she caught. They have a mouse problem. So she setup a glue trap, because she couldn't figure out the snap trap and she couldn't find any place to buy poison. She brought the mouse in the glue trap. She wanted to know if I had a way to get the mouse out of the trap. Nope, but I did look it up, apparently its extremely difficult to impossible to get a mouse out of a glue trap and you're supposed to throw the mouse out with the trap.

     

    I had to ask her that one of the three guys she lives with can deal with it. She said they're gone and she explained she's a live in nanny working for a gay couple with a kid and their brother lives with them. So that explains the 3 guys, 1 girl and a kid. I always laughed to my friends that it was a woman and her 3 husbands.

     

    Months go by... There's someone at my door, but I try not to answer and I had this weird feeling that because there was no vehicle in the driveway it was the neighbor. It was 9 at night. So I ignored it and that woman walked around the house to find the room I was in and just started yelling in. Lucky for me I keep all blinds shut, because if people don't think the house was occupied you need to keep the blinds shut to keep up the illusion.

     

    Long story short. She felt her boyfriend was at a bar cheating on her... could I please watch the kid while she goes over to catch him. She said the kid was asleep and wouldn't be awake until tomorrow. wtf? I'm a stranger. I asked what about the 3 guys she lives with. Oh they're all gone. Didn't say where. Maybe they work late or party late... 3 people all gone. Now that I'm thinking about it... little kids sleep and she could probably just take the kid with her.

     

    Anyway, sounded like some sort of a trap, hey stranger come watch my kid. I told her to call some friends and have them stalk the guy and she said no one is answering their phone. I can't imagine why. Oh and keep in mind this is us yelling through a wall to one another. I didn't open my curtains or anything. Ho-lee- shit. To wrap up the conversation I told her call a cab and have the driver stalk him. She got no where and went home across the road.

     

    Months go by and Halloween comes up. I have never had a trick-or-treater. I'm in an unpopulated area. There was a knock at the door. For years I've always joked about "if I ever get a trick-or-treater I've got an Easter bunny for them." Well... I did, from 2006. Sure enough it was the woman next door and she brought the 3 year old dressed as a pumpkin. I just so happened to have bags of chocolate my aunt didn't want so she came over and gave me them. The catch is they were from the summer and it gets hot, so chances are they were half melted inside. I gave her a choice 1 bag of chocolate mint or another bag of some kind of chocolate peppermint.

     

    I gave them an entire bag. She said I was so weird and do I do that with every trick-or-treater, so I informed her I've literally never had a trick-or-treater and it would only be weird if we were talking through a wall at 9 pm or if she brought over a mouse. She gave me some sort of dead, blank expression like she couldn't remember.

     

    Then I noticed she had a ring. So I tried to think back if she had a ring when she brought the mouse over. I don't think she did, but I guess I never thought to check? So I'm wondering if she's not a nanny, and that's her kid because she's just some psychotic house wife. She does have white blonde hair and so does the kid. Then again her hair is so white blonde that its probably not natural.

      I should also mention the house is kept lit on the outside almost like daytime. Not the garage lights or front lights. I mean the entire exterior lights are just on all night. I think they go off at 6 AM. They aren't yellowish or dim lights either they're bluish white lights.

       

      The catch is the bedrooms are on the second floor, the lights are on the eves of the first floor so they wouldn't see the light nearly as much as I would from across the road.

       

      To be fair the previous owner moved as they were burglarized twice... which seems extremely strange as their specific careers would prevent people from ever being stupid enough to burglarize them (2 cops living together). Plus... there's no crime in my area. So its odd they would get hit twice.

      Your neighbors freak me the fuck out, honestly.

      Writing this all out they started to freak me out too. During the experience of my neighbor shouting through a wall to me, I did think about calling the cops without even warning her. She'd probably be gone before the cops got there and she didn't stick around, just 2 minutes or so.

       

      Its one of those things that can easily be solved by just going over there and introducing myself like a normal person, but there's no sort of encouragement to do that. I don't have kids or someone else that would benefit from knowing a neighbor.

  25. I think Starlight Sanctuary is the first map where I've used almost every monster from the Doom bestiary. only ones not in there are the zombieman, spectre, and spider mastermind. Oh, and perhaps the most glaring omission, the wolfenstein ss.

      It used to be "Green Marine" but someone got upset because they thought they had somehow gotten demoted back to having 10 posts or whatever the title usually applies to

      What a great time to have 420 posts in! Back in my day we had the "I can upload my own avatar now!" at 250.

  27. I created MIDIs (sometimes convert to mp3 by Cubase) for Doom and another games in 10 music styles: 

    1) Hard Rock;

    2) Heavy Metal;

    3) Post-punk;

    4) Classic;

    5) Rap;

    6) Synth Pop

    7) Jazz;

    8) New Age;

    9) Anime music;

    10) Gothic.

    Because I love a variety in music.

      You call all that music? I see only 4 genres there.
