  1. Tiger Schulmanns had to be lame and say their guy defeated me, but you can see the ref raises my arm before the round 4 video cuts off. My "light heavy weight" belt as the announcer calls it is still hanging on my wall.

    In an earlier fight that ended in a draw he gave me a rougher time, but this was my easiest fight since he was afraid of my knees and just wanted to stall not knowing Muay Thai technique. I just let him tire himself out and purposely dropped my weight while he was holding on and you can see how exhausted he is when he lets go. The previous fight he had an advantage in boxing, especially since my Wing Chun doesn't work with big ass boxing gloves. But after three months I had improved my boxing to have the advantage there. He kept me from really kneeing the hell out of him this time around though. The guy's apparently a really good MMA fighter but this was stand up Muay Thai.

      Not a tournament, just an event of anywhere from 9 to 15 full contact amateur matches of various types of kickboxing (high leg, low leg, Int'l style) and some Muay Thai (though no elbows allowed and no knees to the head). PA no longer allows boxing and kickboxing at the same event. Now DE is the same way though this is in PA. Corrupt state boxing commissions try to squash everything that isn't regular boxing.

  2. I've tried to play Hexen a million times but could never get past Seven Portals before getting stuck and losing interest. But last week I was having problems playing 3d games and loaded up Hexen just to see if it worked. For some reason I could not pull myself away from the game for 3 hours, and a few days later I finished it. Other games I've bought in the past few years usually can barely keep my interest for one hour, and I almost never finish them.

    Anyway I'm really excited because today I remembered that it has an expansion pack, so I'm starting that right now. I also downloaded Hexen 2, Hexen 2's mission pack, and Heretic 2, so I can't wait to start those as soon as possible as well.

      I know that some music sounds better an my SB AWE32 than on my SB Live Platinum's general midi. On the Live instruments cut off abruptly in e2m8. The music blows in windows ports and on a laptop in comparison.

      It would probably be good for most people to start on the second hub of Hexen. Seven Portals is just a few too many.

      Tried Korax Heritage? Deepens Hexen even more, but enemies take much longer to kill. You want to start from the beginning in this so you're higher in level later in the game. And it's compatible with Death Kings of the Dark Citadel.

  5. I've had varying headache for about 3 weeks now, along with problems with vision.

    Had my head scanned finally today, they found something that does not belong at the back of my head.

    Can't say what it is exactly yet from the pictures, but it's most likely metastasis of the sarcoma that ran off with my arm last year. Bugger doesn't want to give up that easily it seems, and is back with a vengeance.

    Going to Helsinki sometime next week, and they're probably going to operate on it right away. At least I hope so.

      That's just the oncologist's opinion. The fact you've gotten a good bit better and chemo didn't do you in shows your strength. Don't give up and think of trying some alterative stuff along side conventional treatment and diet is very important. Stay away from even partially hydrogenated stuff. Sorry, I don't mean to make it sound that simple, but every little bit or adjustment may help. Don't give up.

  12. I'm exhausted... Woke up this morning and noticed that my eye fucking hurt. I get up, look in the mirror, and see I have a fat pink eye infection. It was all oozy and was very painful. I was pretty pissed off that I got it so I ate some magic mushrooms. Then, 30 minutes later, I popped a pill. Then I left to go do something, then here I am right here 5 - 6 hours later trying to figure out what just happened today, and why my eye looks so much worse. I tripped balls on so many different levels, and had some incredible epiphanies. One was the fact that I had two arms and legs and that I could control them.

    Random blog, I know. I just feel like typing stuff because I can and I have nothing else to do. I walked through like 20 different portals at once. My eye still hurts.

    That was a pretty awesome comeback the Phillies made last night. Four points at the bottom of the ninth. It's right up there with the supreme ass-whipping they handed out the other day.

    Since I'm living alone I'm spending a lot more time naked... which brings an interesting moral conflict whenever company comes. Whenever you visit a friend who lives alone, it's best to assume his balls have touched everything.

  14. I've been using those for the last 10 years, and rarely bought any alcalines or, God forbid, Zinc Carbon ones.

    Essentially, since I started regularly using my walkman for listening to music on the move, I soon realized that it gulped batteries down pretty quickly (I always bought noname walkmans that sounded good, but consumed 2x-3x as much as a brand one).

    That's when I switched to rechargeables, in the end of 2000. At first I had to make do with some low-capacity Nicads (600-650 mAh) but even those performed much smoother than alkalines: instead of working OK for 4-5 hours and then gradually slowing down and losing power, they worked for 6 hours straight with constant power until they were completely drained.

    With NiMHs, capacity improved dramatically while still mantaining that constant current performance, going well over 10 hours with 1500 mAh cells (back then), and simplifying charging (didn't have to wait until cells were depleted to recharge them).

    In any case, since then I've exclusively used rechargeables in CD players, RC vehicles, tools, flashlight, MP3 players, and even digital cameras.

    For high-power and IT devices, they are pretty much a must: alkaline and zinc carbon batteries lose current delivery capacity pretty quickly due to their internal resistance, even if they can work for years in low power setting like, say, clocks, film cameras or remote controls. On the other hand, rechargeables perform constantly (and with way higher current output) throughout their discharge.

    The only devices that I've found to work unsatisfactorily with rechargeables, are those that lack voltage regulation and thus depend too much on some voltage threshold being exceeded by the batteries, without requiring high current. These include LED flashlights and some types of battery-to-battery chargers, like those found on some RC toys.

    (White) LED flashlights, despite being more efficient, need 3.6 Volts just to "break" the semiconductor and start working. Normal 1.5 V cells can handle that, and have some spare voltage to force enough current through them too. Rechargeables however are 1.2 V, and thus barely manage to break the LEDs forward voltage.

    Similarly, poorly designed transmitters-chargers that tap directly from the batteries without regulation may not work well or at all with rechargeables.

    Also, uses such as clocks or remote controls are not ideal, because they drain so little energy that the batteries will likely self-discharge faster than what will actually be used.

  17. Yeah, this is what usually keeps me up lately. When I should be drifting off into a peaceful sleep, I'm instead obsessing over the end. It could be some cataclysmic event, like a country-sized meteor that could turn this planet into a toxic wasteland. It could be painful-- I could be burned, skinned, broken, smashed or picked apart, lying on conrete in pieces flailing in pain, begging for any kind of release, until finally it comes in the form of chemicals flooding my brain as I float off into oblivion. I could be an old man, reflecting on my life and more accepting of what will happen, my own fate in my hands as I decide it's time to go.

    I keep telling myself that this is just some misplaced frustration toward the lack of control I have over my life or a nameless, possibly imaginary threat to my livelihood. But we all know the effectiveness of things we "keep telling ourselves". It doesn't seem to keep me from thrashing around in bed for hours, working up a cold sweat. It certainly doesn't make a good enough excuse to stop contemplating inevitability. I'm not young any more, but do I really have to? I think it's too early to go through this crap.

    Sometimes it's not the end itself that bothers me so much as the significance of experiencing death. I don't want the thread to turn into one of those discussions, since I've already resigned myself to the fact that I'll never know and any positive answer I can come up with is probably wishful thinking out of fear.

    That's not to say this hasn't happened before; I seem to remember me going through this crap about ten years ago. I can draw certain parallels to my life between then and now, which I suppose would be a nice exercise in self-awareness, but I think the real lesson to learn here is that I REALLY NEED TO GET SOME PROBLEMS THAT ARE MORE MUNDANE. Like being late on the mortgage or something. Jesus.

    P.S. No, drugs won't help. They only magnify the problem.

  18. I'm having an issue <_<
    I kinda decided I'd use myspace to hook up (I'm young by the way, 15. I think I registered on Doomworld as about 30 but I'm not sure <_<), and added quite a few different chicks at once because one at a time would be too slow (they'd all say not interested or something)...
    Now I have 3 (possibly 4) girls who wanna date me. I'm having a hard time choosing between them. Heres my options.
    1. One is a standard rocker girl. Cute. The only one that directly said she wanted to hang out this weekend.
    2. One is 18. (18 year old chicks seem less picky about guys. I've had another say she'd date me if she wasn't in a relationship in the past).
    3. The other is an emo chick and she's cute.

    Also, if the emo chick's friend adds me saying she has the exact same personality as the emo chick, and to add her does that mean she probably wants a three person relationship?

    SO confused!

  19. No its not balloon animals. I am really proud that I'm making great money and designing products that appear in nation wide chain stores like Deb, Claires, Limited Too, and Rue 21.

    However, what I am not proud of is the fact that I'm 28 designing things to be worn by 8-10 year old girls. My girlfriend isn't proud of it. She told me to tell her friends I'm looking for a job.

    I would post this as a real blog on myspace, but I'd get laughed at by my friends. I'd rather get laughed at by strangers :-) So have at it!

  20. I had this cheapo DVD I use as a disc-MP3 player acting up on me (it didn't play anything properly) so before scrapping it, I decided to give it a shot "repairing" it.

    I just googled something about DVD players not working...first forum I found it said it could be a worn out main spindle motor.

    I say "well, what the hell" and opened it up..yup, it had an el-cheapo brushed motor (that's bad, because these things wear down relatively quickly).

    I had a similar one, but before trying anything else...I just used some "tuner cleaner" (a special spray for switches).

    And hey-presto, it worked :-o

  22. Recently I stopped working on Skulltag so that I could focus on a completely new project. As you might imagine, this project is a brand new FPS, which is codenamed Vega.

    Vega is currently being worked on by WastedYouth (who made the map featured below), Mechadon, and (obviously) me. It will feature gameplay similar to Doom, in that it will be simple, fast, and furious. It will also be very easy to mod, so those of you who enjoy modding should be pleased.

    Anyway, enough chatter. Here are some screenshots:

    SHOT #1: The center area. The central column has a lift that takes you to the top.


    SHOT #2: The inner passageways, showing off the dynamic lighting.


    SHOT #3: The corner of the map, showing off some blue lighting.


    SHOT #4: The edge of the map. Hey look! Room over room!


    BONUS: A shot of the editor, with the above map loaded.


    We've been working very hard on it, and hope you enjoy this sneak peek at it :)

    We've also just set up a blog where you will be able to follow Vega's development, as well as read about some of the technology behind it. You can find the blog at http://vega.skulltag.com/.

    Anyway, that's it for now!

      Pretty cool, just it might be a good idea to make sure the color palette isn't too limited like Quake's. Obviously the setting calls for the range of colors shown, but I've seen some nice Eqyptian style stuff within Doom's color palette, so it's good to have a wide range available.
