  1. After getting home tonight, I ran across a Slashdot article which pointed me into the direction of Maze War, apparently the first FPS DM game ever (ran on, I believe, ARPANET, using an ImLacs PDS-1 computer). Well, reading up on the old ImLacs, I got interested in reading up on more old computers, and eventually ran across this site: http://oldcomputers.net/

    It's a rather interesting site if you want to see some older vintage computers.

    After going through this site, I've decided to take up a new hobby: collecting old, vintage computers. Not many, and I don't want this to turn into an extremely expensive hobby, but I think it'd be rather fun to do. Pick up an old one here, write a BASIC program or two for it there...

    The first one I'm thinking about is a Kaypro II since I found one rather cheap. But given that I'm in Japan, it puts a slight kink into purchasing it. Sure, I can ship it to my house where my mom is, but...the issue of funding comes into play.

    If I can find a Kaypro 2000, though...yeah, that'd be something ^_^

    Oh well, we'll see where this goes. Now, off to use an emulated TI99/4A since mine's at home and not here...maybe write some meaningless program in TI-Basic, the first language I learned.

  2. I didn't want to mong up EE with this fairly unnecessary question, so here it goes in blogs. Is anyone here aware of a confirmation of there being bots in Halo 2 multiplay (and if so, can you cite any sources)?

      i wasn't looking forward to it much anyways. I'll get it when the price drops or when halo 3 comes out

      it took fucking forever for halo to drop in price.

      have never played a multiplayer game of halo.

  3. Today, before classes began, my teacher decided to give the class a little talk about hygene. Yes, she actually had to give them all a speech about needing to wash their nuts and stuff. Yeah, they're some smelly bastards all right, thankfully I do not breath through my nose (and I smoke anyway). One kid smells so bad that last year, my teacher's aide used to spray the room with air freshener when he left. I can tell he's too stupid to use a fucking washcloth because he can't spell the word scene. What the fuck.

    This other kid's breath reeks like he reached right into a toilet and ate the biggest fucking turd in it. Another just looks unclean but I don't think he really smells. Me and the other kid in my class yawned the speech off as, unlike the rest of my class, we actually wash ourselves.

    The reason for the whole pep-talk was apparently, kids coming into the class after my class mentioned how bad it reeks. Christ I hate my class, the stinky fucks.

  4. When i think of my past it becomes difficult. It is often hazy and unclear. often times because relatives lie to cover up the past or because they didn't know what was going on. Also an inceident 5 years ago took alot of recent memmories. However one thing in my mind does stand out. I know how i felt and i understood many things.

    What has made me think about this is some community work i have been doing. I never thought of my self as a person that would like kids or that kids would even like. I tend not to deal with stress very well and often become deffensive. however how i react often depends on the person. I am more prone to become violent if the agitator is older, around 30's, and more so if it is a woman. Also a man who is older and bigger. oddly i am not distrustful towards women. considering those who hurt me the most were women.

    three weeks ago I gave a 3rd grade class a presentation. Usally our groups are mixed crowds of children and adults. to add to the mix it was at a religious school. so i had to rewrite my work with both in mind. most of the originals deal with breeding and evolution. However the children were intelligent, but still asked questions i expected. Also the school was small. which made it easy to get in an out. and for once the animals behaved, mainly the skink.

    The way the children reacted was a dark reminder of who i was. I am sure there are some there who share my pain. In those days there was only one thing i was trying to do, stay alive and get out. My family life hit the fan at that age. my mother left and my father brought in a new girl. At first we liked her and began to trust her. Until she became abusive. Unlike other children i didn't think i was the cause and i stood up. the abuse lasted for another 4 years. after the first 2 i came to a dark conclusion "the bitch must die!" it is possible i even considered suicide if i failed to kill her. certianly failing such a thing would be bad. The plan was simple. slit her throat in the night after she passed out from drinking. I knew killing was wrong, but i knew it was either her or me. I later, that year, stabbed her in a knife fight. she was drunk and dropped her knife. a mistake i made sure she would not forget. I stuck the short knife into her upper leg. She then punched me and hobbled away. I was 10 years old at the time, maybe 11. She later got a nasty infection from the wound.

    what makes me think about such things is the letters from the children. There is no darkness. They are happy and the children sound like they were excited to see the animals. I am sure many of them have no idea how cruel the world can be. Oddly, and touching, is the fact they liked having me there. Mainly because a part of me is very distrustful and my view is that all people are going to act the same way toawrds me. I know reality is different and depends on the person, but it still surprises me how trusting people can be. in contrast my writings were cryptic and dark. I recently went over some of mine from that age. I often spoke of a monster who would brings a violent death to those who slept. Sometimes i was more direct and wrote about a dream were i had been shot. Teachers often dismissed this because i was from a different culture or because all boys dream about monsters and guns. These would usally be mixed in with standard childish things and my interest in electronics and machienes. I may not remember much but i do know i did have times of peace and happiness.

    I have learned alot about my self in the last 4 years. I have learned that i missed out on many important life lessons and that i learned many that should never have to be learned. I also learned how close i was to continuing the cycle of my faimily. I also see why children should be taken more seriously.

    I am a different person now. I don't fear for my life and i am more trusting. however i do bear the old wounds and lessons of those days. I have a stricter point of view towards drugs and abuse. I am very criticle of other family memmbers aswell and have all but broken off contact with my dad's side of the family.

      its not that i dwell in the past. i look forward to the future. however events remind me of the past and its lessons. lessons people seem to forget very quickly or they just fail to learn. It reminds me i can still become like "them" if i am not careful.

      Oddly i am a very forgiving person and polite to people. that is unless you pose a threat.

      I found $120 hidden in the dashboard of my car when I was putting in a new stereo. I cant imagine anyone forgetting they hid that amount of money in a car...

      I can. a friend of mine did that. she hid about $300 in the radio. then oneday the car died. her gradfather got so sick of it being infront that he had it towed away.
      she was pissed and even tried to find the car. I hope she learned her lesson. banks or safes make much better hidding places.

      my money hiding was restricted to small amounts of say $50. used a modle alligator that squeaked. I removed the stopper and roller the money into the gator. i tied it to squeaker and pushed the stopper back in.
      However that was done because my dad dated this bitch who would take our money to buy beer, smokes and drugs. the bitch never found out where i hid my money. she even threated me once and i simply said i didn't have any money. when she moved out i had sazed about $75 and used it to buy a game and a boombox.

      I wash every day and I wash everything. I dont want smelly nuts. My brother had a nasty habit of not showing for day and useing the same clothes. he would smell horrible.

      some of the guys at work can be just as bad. either they smell bad or their breath smells and teeth are nasty. the kicker is non of them smoke.

  7. What's up with the thread title? Well, at my school, a 2000 is announced over the PA during an "emergency situation" which really boils down to "somebody is getting the fuck kicked out of them" or "some dumbass is going to try to run away from a school in the middle of fucking NOWHERE".

    In gym, it was just me and her but really just me because she didn't do shit except say how she wanted to go home and how she hated the school and all that. So, we're waiting for the period to end, I'm talking to my teacher about random BS and she is on the other side of the gym looking out the door. For a few minutes she just stands there, randomly mumbles the same old stuff and then *blam* she's out that door like a bullet. Though she always gets nabbed by the cops, she keeps doing it. It's weird though, they always told me that if you are 16+, alls they do is suspend you if you leave. Whatever.

    I go over to the door to see her crossing the soccer field, heading towards woods and a corn field (BTW, I'm bussed to my school from by my home district so don't think that I live around farms or something). My teacher casually strolls up to the door, watches her running and gets on the phone with the support room staff (support is a little room with a bench you sit in when you get sent out of class) and told her she booked. Within moments an urgent "2000 in the gym!" was called over the PA. Suddenly, about 20 staffers (teachers, counsellors and support staff) start running down the hall, splitting up to take the side doors, front doors, gym doors and all that. Me and my teacher laughed and he sits down, grabs our notes (they give us "points" based on 5 catergories specifically for us as incentive / punishment. Some students actually care to go to a personal activity at the end of the day, I could give afuck less) and he says "You know, I think I will give her some gym credits today, that's the fastest I've seen her run yet".

    Fun times.

    I've seen her take off one other time. We were in study hall in my home room at the end of the day and she was sitting in the window, moping about something and getting bitchy, then she just sits there. Within a few moments, she said "Fuck this shit" and hopped out the window and casually strolled towards the damn soccer field.

    Where does this crazy bitch expect to go anyways? Her home district is about a 3 hour walk and right now, it's cold and rainy all the time. What a weirdo.

      before columbine my school was fairly lax. many kids would drive down to McDonalds. even though you really where not allowed.

      however that ended in 99, my freshman year. infact we had more issues with people coming in from outside. either people who had dropped out or graduated. then then began to make us wear ID badges. though annoying i complied. however almost no one did. so it was dropped to just have the ID badge in a wallet.

      schools are kinda like daycare. they are in charge of the kids. they would get in trouble if they just let it slide.

      personaly i would just sit back and enjoy the show. let the bitch stay out side all cold and wet.

      i remember a kid who did shit to show off. he once stole 7 hotdogs from a UDF just to show us he could. he then broght a gun to school to show it off. the people he showed it to turned him in and he got nusted hard. was expelled and spent time in jail.
      during my senior year he came into my place of work. at was standing by our cell phone booth. so i called the in store security and told them to check him. he had tried to steal about $75 worth of cords? WTF was he gonna do with them?

  9. Heh, today I was parking in my school parking lot, when all of a sudden outta nowhere comes this douche bag ricer driving a shitty neon with a fart pipe and those gay ass flickering lights. He gets outta his car and starts swearing at me yelling "why the Fuck did you flip me off those two times man?! you got some kinda problem man?!"

    He swore and i swore back. He wanted to fight. I would of decked the moron, but if i get in a fight this year, i can't graduate mid-year. Plus, i don't like fighting anyway, its for morons. I started making fun of his car and he got even more pissed until he finally just threatened to call the cops, beat me up, then kill me...what an idiot. he left after that. As he drove away, he pushed his little four banger's pedal to the ground, and I could here the back pressure from his stupid muffler-coffee-can-fart-pipe thing. it was fucking funny.

    just thought i share that with you dudes.

      what is with the sudden influx of ricer/car threads all of a sudden?

      every highschool is gonna have kids like that.
      i dont care what kind of car you have. its not gonna make your dick any bigger!

      i remember a friend saying that. most of the kids around here are not asses. however we did have a kid who was a complete dumbass. wrecked 4 cars in 2 years doing dumb shit, later he killed him self by hitting a pole trying to spin out or something. i have lost a few friends in racing or other car related mishaps. so i think the whole street racing pop-culutre thing really needs to die.

      its one thing to race at a track and another to do it on the streets where i live.

      i think she does it just for attention. had a girl like that in my school. she would get pissed when we "didn't care" that she walked out.

      once she was bragging about it and i said "you...left?" as if i didn't know. she kinda got pissed. then i added "it was getting to quite in here" that sent her through the roof. she started yelling and the teacher grabbed her and took her to the office.

      she was always asking for trouble. she always acted like a bully to everyone. she even beat up a girl cause the girl was nice to people.

      however life came full circle on the bitch. she was killed out side a bar by another woman.

  11. After living in California for about month and a half, I might be moving back home.
    Why you ask?

    1. My older bro is quite possbily moving to Portland, OR because of his job. This is actually a good thing for him. But if/when he goes, he's going alone so I'll on my own again. No biggie really...

    2. I'm still without a job after filling out apps and handing out resumes like crazy.
    read = too many people, very few jobs.

    3. My parents are ramping up their busines and could use some help. They run a hunting lodge for those curious.

    Crappy website done ours yours truly...

    This area is beautiful and all, but it's hick and hippieville. (And I know hicks, I grew up in South Dakota! ;) ) So that's about it really. I don't know when I'll be leaving either. I could either stay and get a temp job until the christmas or leave now.
    Or just stay and hope to hell I find a decent paying job. Unlikely...

    I've spent so much money just getting up here and now that I'm about out, I must face going back home again. ARGH!!

    So what should I do? I'm set on going home at the moment but I want to be sure I won't making a huge mistake.

    Although going home means no more cable modem.... :(

      just like florida, there is no reason to live there. however i admit i hate the weather up here and would never consider moving north.

  14. I would really like to know how to port levels made from Macintosh, to levels you can play in windows for these two games: Wolfenstein (3D) and doom.

    The reason: It actually started with wolf. I whent to Laz's wolf page http://www.geocities.com/TimesSquare/3744/index2.html. I downloaded a few of the scenarios but they're Macontosh files. Since im a windows user, all I get is some soandso.sit file. (where soandso is the name of the thing im downloading.) I would like to know if there is a way to convert this ".sit" file in to a windows file. While your at it, could you also tell me the same but with doom wads?

    ( Im having this bad feeling that you can't convert Mac files to Windows files.)

    1. Sephiroth

      Sephiroth

      wads for doom and even quake maps will work fine between MAC, Windows and Linux. however if they are in the *.sit format you need the stuff it expander.

      however the ports them selvs will not run in windows without an emulator or a mac. also most ports to mac that i have used tended to suck. infact i just dug out my mac with doom and quake.

      the wad and pak files are just files. i have never had issues with running either in a mac, windows or linux system. example i downloaded shareware quake for mac and then added my registered pak files to it. now i got registered quake for mac. same thing i did to doom.

  15. what? the sephiroth is going to meet a girl? how can this be?

    well yes i am going to meet a girl. I let some girl at work trap me into meeting with her friend. situations like this are an odd thing for me. one i am not very trusting of people. two is the fact i know almost nothing about this girl. also add in the fact that bars are not at all a place I enjoy.

    anyways wish me luck, i am heading out in an hour. i just hope this isnt a mistake. and i hope she doesn't ask me if i said stake.

  16. i have decided i will no longer help this couple... for free. i was helping them with their computer and internet however going over there is a pain in the ass. their kids just run amok and destroy everything, mainly the youngest. he even destoryed a computer. honestly that is when you spank a kid, not just say "bad" like its a dog.

    to make matters worse the kids abuse their last computer. turn it off when they cant get on, passwords prevent them from getting on. also by screwing around with alot of stuff.

    though what they do is easy to fix, but when you have 3 screaming kids fallowing you around and constatly buggy you. add in breakign stuff, throwing stuff, fighting yelling and such it gets to be a pain.
    its not that i dont like kids. these kids are just not at all punished for the shit they do. say like, pouring pop into a computer or throwing plates into the ceiling fan. shit like that deserves a spanking and a grounding. today i am fixing the last problem, i belive it is realted to the fact they didn't pay the god damn bill for the internet.

    Don't you hate it when you get wrangled into crap you don't want to be, and then you feel stupid when you actually have a decent time?

      i went to my highschool prom once...once. a waste of my god damn time. the girl i was with didn't even want to dance. we just sat there, had picture taken and shit like that.
      she was a nice girl and all, but too shy.

  19. once agian am i rebuilding the classic game PC. this time i have found some of my better parts.
    anyways specs time
    Intel Pentium pro 200Mhz 256k cache
    96MB system RAM
    4MB sis video with 3dfx voodoo 2 12MB 3d accelrator. plan on buying another voodoo 2 and runing SLI.
    4GB maxtor hard drive, 5400RPM
    soundblaster AWE64, a great card for older games.

    i have some concerns about the pentium pro CPU. i have heard it runs kinda bad in 16bit mode. also i think it lacks the MMX ability.

    however my p133 system ran very well and had similar specs. minus the voodoo2. i was saddened to have never gotten one. until now.

    now for the games list
    GL quake
    half-life
    quake2
    tombradier 1 & 2
    doom, duh
    keen 4, 5 & 6
    wolf3d


    have any of you guys ever used a pentium pro for such a task? i just used it because the base system was already built and i did not feel like digging thru trying to find a good working pentium board.

  21. Hooray.. Less than a week before my birthday, my computer decided to kick the boot.

    I've narrowed it down to one of the following components that might be to blame for the death of the computer.

    1. Motherboard (Which would be a bad, bad thing)
    2. CPU
    3. RAM
    4. Power Supply

    Ugh, there goes any of the ideas my parents had for birthday presents this year. (I was kind of hoping to get a new video card for my birthday)

    Well, now I just need $1000 dollars so I can get a new one.

      note if it is a dell DONT buy a standrad Powersupply and just put it in. you will need an adapter.

      i am not aware of any other companies that make odd ATX boards and supplies.

      i would bet it is the powersupply. sounds like it anyways. however if the thing created a surge it may have taken the rest of the system too. hopefuly not. go out and buy a new power supply.

      a note on these buggers. one issue i have seen is the fact some massproduced systems use under powered supplies. i saw a P4 2.4Ghz dell with only a 175 watt supply. i would strongly suddgest at least a 400watt. it all depends on what you got and plan to add. adding something to that dell most likly would have killed it in time. also i dont belive in adding lights and junk to the car... i mean computer.

      a new powersupply might cost you a grand totaly of $40-$100 depending on what you want or need. however on pricewatch you can find some cheapo ones for $15 or so, if you want to risk it. i will note on the cheap ones. they seem to work just fine. they were being used in electronics classes and showed no drop/rise in voltage and current. even after abuse. so that is a choice for you to make.

  22. what? the sephiroth is going to meet a girl? how can this be?

    well yes i am going to meet a girl. I let some girl at work trap me into meeting with her friend. situations like this are an odd thing for me. one i am not very trusting of people. two is the fact i know almost nothing about this girl. also add in the fact that bars are not at all a place I enjoy.

    anyways wish me luck, i am heading out in an hour. i just hope this isnt a mistake. and i hope she doesn't ask me if i said stake.

  23. Ok, I've started working on my next Flash animation a little over two weeks ago. It's the finale for the Solid Snake Simulation Show. The pace of the movie is slower than the last two movies but there will be some action. And hooray for me, I have windows (As in, I know how to make transparent objects!) Yeah, so the lesson I've learned from that is read the tutorials. The movie's almost done. I just need to add in sounds and change some music. The flash movie's a whopping 7MBs! Maybe it's because of the music or the excessive use of frames, I really should find a way to decrease the size. Anyone have suggestions on how I can do that?
