      My guess is he/she/it/whatever is a member or mod playing a joke or just being stupid. It's too devestating to think it's anything other than a joke. The implications of it being an actual person are simply staggering.


      just like esco was... he just couldn't dump the fake ghettot talk.

  3. I was having trouble sleeping the past few weeks, until I found a classical music station and began listening to it in bed. Just not thinking about anything and listening to the music seems to work great.

    Anyone else do anything like this?

      i like the sound of machiens. you know like a fan or something, so the tornado fan in my computer doesn't really bother me, infact it puts me to sleep when i am alone and bored in the living room.

      i use to listen to a radio station but stoped due to wierd dreams resuklting from wierd songs.

      i remember they had this one song where they always added quotes from movies like forest gump and jerry mequire, and then the 1995 oklahoma bombing. that one always made me had wierd dreams

  4. personaly i was never into dating. i did a few times but nothing ever really came of it.
    i did have girls i had crushes on. one of them for the longest time. however i never acted on it. recent girls just didn't have any appeal to them.

    however that all changed last week. I had been trying an internet dateing site. i figured it was worth a shot. little did i know i would meet a really nice girl.

    now i know its far too early to say she is the love of my life, but i really feel something with her. I love being around her, talking to her, feeling her embrace, her smile, her eyes. its as if i have known her for a very long time. she says she feels the same towards me.

    it all happened so fast, however it feels good. i feel good about her and i feel as if i can trust her. something that has always been difficult for me to do. however my gut instinct is usally right.

    its proof to me that there are still good people out there. it makes me feel so much better about my self. i am really begining to get to know her, but like i said it feels as if i have known her for years.

    1. Sephiroth

      Sephiroth

      I really like this girl. I enjoy talking to her, being with her. Hell i could even swear i could smell her today, heh she smells good.
      Sadly the only thing i don't like is the fact she smokes.

      well that's my life. I never really know what to expect, but sometimes i do. this was a very pleasant surprise and i hope it works out for me and her.

  5. ...because i blew up the pourch steps.

    being bored and spending time with a stoned friend is not a good idea. we have had our fair share of misadventures. this one included a hammer, a cement pourch step and a strip of explosive charges for a nail gun.

    well we decide to set off some of these charges. they are basicly blanks. they are even bullet shaped. to set them off you have to hit them from behind. so we searched for something to hold them. the pourch use to have a wood border around it and there were still holes from the screws. we stuck a shell in there and slammed it. it didnt work, it just pushed it into the hole. so i gave up and went to remove it. however my friend wasn't about to give up. however before he could swing his phone rang. so he was talking on the phone when he took his mighty swing.
    BAM! the thing went off and blew a large section of cement right off the step and into his face.
    I fell down because i was laughting so hard. the person on the phone didn't hear the explosion surprisingly.

    today we are fixing the step.

    however at least we can fix it, this isnt like the time another of his friends cut down a tree.

    1. Sephiroth

      Sephiroth

      well these nailguns put things in stone and cement.

      I was not high, but i was very bored. though a friend, who set off said charge, was very high.

      the step is now fixed now. all we need to do is paint. i whish we had it on video.

  6. Woot, my laptop went belly-up.

    Apparently i got a virus last night and now windows does not load at all. It boots to the safemode/normal mode/command prompt menu and every option just restarts the comp. It has to do with five files on the comp, which are listed with a bunch of other crap, but then it reboots. I can't even get to the bios config either.

    Also, I dont have the windows installation cds either because the os came with the laptop preinstalled. fucking yay. o_O

    Note: the laptop does NOT have a floppy drive, and i dont have an external drive either, so boot floppies wont work.

      This website explains some things about running RegEdit from a command prompt. And I'm not promoting warez, but I guess it'd be sort of a grey area to borrow an OEM version from somebody (seeing as how you paid for the CD key you'll use).

      OEM versions i belive are ok, because it is the key you pay for. without a valid key windows XP will not work after 30 days.

      though of course i am sure there are ways to fool or disable that activation stuff.

  7. Okay, not sure if this belongs here or not, but if it doesn't it will probably be moved. Anyway, I have a few questions about copyrights. For the past several years I've been filming various stunts and whatnot to mass produce and sell. Recently however I've gotten trouble from someone involved with my filming. Now onto my questions. Since some camerawork is not my own will I still able to have it copyrighted to me because it was all being filmed for me? If so, if said person(s) attempt using the things filmed in anyway I do not want them to do I have the right to sue them?

      ask your self is it really worth court and lawyer costs?

      a case like that would be difficult, if not impossible, for you to get 100% of the copyright.

  8. never done it until this weekend.

    basicly it is taking a laptop, or PDA and listening for wireless networks.

    i did this going up and coming back from my grandparents home. too bad i dont have a gps.

    things i learned
    about 75% of these networks were not encrypted.
    channels 6 and 11 are the most popular.
    83% of them used default SSID's
    netgear was the most popular, fallowed by linksys, cisco and PCX500. D-link and microsoft were rare.
    the most popular speed was 11mbps and 22mbps. very few 54g and no detected 108g connections.
    one guy had his address as the SSID
    one guy must really like M.C. Hammer. with the SSID of "hammertime"

    1. Sephiroth

      Sephiroth

      in the list a guy had his address as the SSID.
      had the aprtment building and apt number. i guess he wants friends.

      I did it just to see how easy/hard it was. we were on the highway 70% of the time and the rest was, for the most part, small country towns.

      only a few larger ones like englewood, Lima, findlay, fostoria and freemont. all ohio cities

  9. I have bought two parts for my computer so far, one being the hard drive. I have another computer on which I have a lot of files I want on it's hard drive. I am sure I already know the answer to this question, but I want to ask it anyway:
    If I format a partition on the new hard drive, am I able to get the files from the other hard drive while running XP? I am sure you can, because of the whole 'backup' partition deal that people set their hard drives up with. I guess I am just bein cautious for some reason.

    Being able to get power to it may be and issue, as I don't know what the computer looks like inside, as it isn't mine. If it is a big problem, I should have the PSU bought by the time I will be able to try and transfer the files.

    1. Sephiroth

      Sephiroth

      just put it as a aslave and find the files you want. assuming the drive is good and there are no viruses.
      its easy, just set it to slave and hook it up.

  10. Hoodles.
    On Monday I made a deal with a friend and out of it, a teacher gave me Doom on my calculator. Just so that it sounds more real-like I took a few pictures right now to show it's calculatory glory.


    The title screen.


    Standing in the hallway with my pistol out.


    A Former Sargent has spotted me. Dun Dun Dunnnnnnnnnnnnn


    A map view of Wolfenstein.

    The game is pretty neato. It has 10 maps, all have the names of real Doom / Doom II maps, but as the maps go, have no link to the real levels. There are three weapons - Pistol, Shotgun and Chaingun. Two enemies - Imp and Former Sargent. Three keys - Red, Blue, and Yellow. Stimpacks and Medikits. And ability to view a the map. It's neato for a calculator and fun to play. It goes one step at a time (though you can run) and loads the map one block at a time. Some people say it is slow, but I call it suspenseful. :D

    Anyone else have Doom on their calculator or other cool dee-lee?

    1. Sephiroth

      ah those things where like crack in high school. everyone, yes everyone includeing non geeks, was into homebrewing stuff for them. ok not everyone. i really wast into it that much. also had the less powerful and older TI-82.

      however don't really know much about them. so those of you calculator mod masters. tell me more about the system. or provide me witha link about them.

      what are the specs of the TI calculators? why are they so popular? How easy and what languages are used on them?

  11. Alright, so case one, I wake up bright and early and get a head start on the day. I start off by taking a shower and then making oatmeal in a fantastic mood (pretty rare for me) And then lo and behold I drop it flat on the kitchen tiled floor, making the china bowl break into billions of pieces and the hot oatmeal go everywhere, including on my foot. Ok so my foot was burned, not that bad, and luckily it broke on the tile than on the carpet, so I clean that up and then I hear that one of the parrots I own has gotton out and SHIT all over the room. So I go there and clean it up, about 30 minutes behind now.

    Case 2, I actually get done with my daily homeschooling work a tad late due to the inconvienence above, then I go outside for a walk and the ENTIRE yard is filled with holes from the multiple dogs I own. I don't even bother to fill them in because the case with these dogs is that if you fill them in, they notice their holes gone and dig em back up! I ignore the holes and not 5 mintues later when I get on IRC then my dad orders me to do it.

    Case 3! My website takes an absolute SHIT on the server it's on, causing everything to meltdown practically. So I begin pouring (sp?) through the database and of course then is when i'm distracted by my sister blowing up her computer and a lovely blue screen of death. I come back to my computer 5 minutes later and start working on it again, and finally fix the site, but then i'm nailed to the cross by my mom for having a bad attitude throughout the day. And here I am going 'HELLO, I was FINE this morning, doing EXCELLENT in fact, until all THIS SHIT happens.' But she doesn't care, and here I am awaiting final restriction from the computer for days, and all of THIS happens during my week to review wads.

    Isn't life just fucking lovely?

    1. Sephiroth

      Sephiroth

      maybe you should not won so many animals? even what i own is a bit much. 2 chameleons, 1 skink and 2 geckos. i dont know why people would bother haveing more than 2 or 3 dogs.

      so as far as the pet issue is concerned you really can only blame your self or family.

      as far as life.... ah shit happens. just get over it. though you can prepare for it. like back up the computer.

  12. When I was growing up, everybody I knew had a Sega master system 2 with Alex kid in miracle world built in... Well everyone except me. I had my crummy old CGA computer. yay. I used to be over my mate across the rode house all the time where I played Alex kid all the time, I have such fond memories of that game. I think got as far as that forest. You know, the one with the bear in it? Yeah. For some reason, I remembered it as a really fun game. And by the time I got enough money to afford anything, the master system was long gone.

    I was also obsessed with this top down shooter called “Fireshark”, I’d only ever played on a coin operated machine at the local super market. I remember many a day stealing 20 cent pieces from me mums purse to play that game. I memorized the first level music (mostly because that was as far as I ever got). I soon discovered that this game was also available on Megadrive! Ahh holding that box in my hands and wishing like crazy I had a Megadrive.

    So here I am at the dawn of my adult years, and access to a wad of emulators and roms of games of old. So the first thing I did was download the to above mentioned games...

    Wow. Father time really took a beating to these guys. Maybe it was the face that these where among the first games I ever played, or maybe save state took the edge off them, but I really didn’t find them that interesting this time around. After raptor, Fireshark really wasn’t that impressive. And Alex kid? Man, what was I on? I still finished them both to make piece with my inner child, but I have no idea what made me think they where such brilliant games. I guess they weren’t terrible, but the symbol of my youth and innocence was a bit of a let down

    Anyone else been through something like this? That is, loved a game as a child, not had access to it for years, and when you finally get another crack at it, discover that the child version of yourself was a bit too easily impressed?

  13. This thought just popped into my head like 30 seconds ago, so don't expect too much from this blog. Although I have felt this way for quite a while.

    Despite virtually every new computer game being 3D these days, very few of the games really take full advantage of the 3rd dimension. Almost all of them are bound to the concept of a flat landscape with gravity pulling in one absolute direction.

    For example, I want to see a game that involves space stations clustered to each other. It should be something akin to having artificial gravity pulling you constantly to the "floor," regardless of whether the floor is facing one side of the space station or the other side. We could, in essence, be required to travel from one station to other to complete whatever task or search for whatever item we need. However, the mere concept of a direction being "up" one minute and "down" the next would be refreshingly new to gamers. I thing that it wolud have the potential of being extremely new and fun because we would have this incredibly new challenge of keeping our directions straight.

    And perhaps, in the later levels of this imaginary game, the clusters could shift their connections to each other in a "rubix cube" type rotation, which would increase the challenge even more.

    1. Sephiroth

      Sephiroth

      like any concept it has to work. this one just differnt and may present a few more issues a team may have to tackle.

      example a game that is hard to control or has a odd or strage control setup may turn off many players.
      example i have seen a number of people complain that RE, parasite eve 2 and silent hill are hard to control. personaly i find it easy to get use to.

      I have found the cammera to be a sometimes very annoying issue in mario64.
      i have played games were controls or camera angles just really really sucked.


      i think for the most part it could be pulled off very well. Anachronox did it with the city and grav lifts. however you always viewed it like a normal quake2 map. it was just one way to deal with it.

      that would be a neat concept, but i think most developers are a little scared to go off the pass. it could also be confusing and hard to play for a number of people.

      I can think of a game that did, in a way, do that. ever play anachronox? the city you start in does alot of stuff like that.

  15. So...what do you generally listen to when you're depressed?

    Whenever I'm feeling down, I put Kid A in my CD player and just keep it on repeat. Ironically, it's a really depressing-sounding album, but for some reason it makes me feel a lot better when I'm upset.

      i think about all the ways i can make the people at school pay. then i select my weapons of choice and ammo.
      I always take practice shot at targets, useing pictures of those i hate most, with my shot gun.
      i also enjoy killing small animals and small dogs. like last week a caught a poodle on fire. then i put it out and tossed it into a yard with a big dog, who ate it.


      i don't really listen to music much any more. hardly any of the stuff i listen to is even on the radio. I am so sick of the pop-culture shit and MTV shit that i can only listen to like 1 radio station that plays older rock bands.




      Note: i don't really light dogs on fire, but then agian i don't consider poodles and their runty cousins to be dogs.

  16. well a woman wants me to call her to see how her computer is doing. she leaves a number. so i dial that number to get "you must dial a 1 or a 0 before dialing this number" the i try both, well i get "dial the area code" message. I assume her area code is 937 because she lives like a mile from here. i dial the full number to get "this number has been disconnected" on my caller id it just shows the 7 digit number. so the is bassicly no way to contact her. So maybe next time she will give me the full fucking number.... or pay her damn bills.

    well tried all local area codes and none worked, so fuck her. she should have had the common sence to tell me the correct phone number.

    anyone know any trick to find out the area code

    1. Sephiroth

  17. 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!!!!!!!!!!!

      are you sure that AOL wasn't down or having issues? i mean it IS AOL! I have had days where i could not sign into AIM. Maybe they had an issue or accidetaly terminated the account, contact their dumb ass support team.

      did you have the screen name as part of a paid AOL ISP account? if so maybe the account that SN was part of got canned for some reason.

      personaly i dont know why anyone would use AOL for an ISP. even if you get it free from work. virus and spyware infections are far worse on AOL systems. AOL trys to be the default CD player, WTF? Also a bunch of other shit.

      i am niot sure if it is the users that cause the spyware junk to be worse with AOL or if AOL has the worst secuirty of all the major ISP's

      norton 2005 just came out, ok like around the same time as SP2. also update to SP2. however not sure how good norton really is. i have been useing AVG for a long time and it has worked fairly good. even when i used norton, back in 2001, and kept it updated AVG was catching stuff norton missed.

  22. Last week Friday (26th of Nov.) I snagged a new PS2. I didn't really care that it was the new downsized version, I just wanted to get one. Long story short, it's Tuesday and controller port 1 doesn't read the joystick, yet it works just fine in port 2. Suffice it to say, I'm kind of mad that I have to ship it all the way to CA to have the system, the controller and the memory card (they wanted all peripherals) replaced. Are there any horror stories of these new PS2s being faulty in anyway? Someone I know said they're more prone to overheating, but that could be a rumor.

    But yeah, I'm not too happy about this situation.

      if you dont abuse it it will not break. thats true for any console system. even if the PS2 is more fagile than the others it can still last a long time if you take care of it.
      i havnt heard any horror stories about the new PS2 other than the lack of suport for hard drive.
      all the ones back so far have been the old PS2 systems. also a part of it is luck. you might get one from a good batch or snag that 1 in 10,000 that is gonna be bad.

      i still own my PSX system, memory card and controler. only the controler acts up on occasion.

  23. Has anyone else noticed the dirt cheap yams lately? At the Giant Eagles around here they're normally $1.49 a pound. Recently they went down to 50 cents per pound. I went home for Thanksgiving after that and found them for 39 cents per pound at Farmer Jacks. But they're back up to 79 cents per pound over here. Anyone seen them even cheaper over Thanksgiving season?

      i like italian. the odd part if i hate tomato chunks for some reason. yea its wierd, cause i will eat tomato soup, pizza and the such i just hate the chunks. lamb just hasn't been something that has ever ended up on my plate for some reason. knowing my self, i will most likly taste kangaroo before lamb. despite the fact lamb is sold most everyware there is meat.
      elk is good if you get the chance.

      as far as yams, yea they are good. my brother hates them, but i think they are great.
