  1. Right now, I'm a neurotic mess, and I don't know how to deal with it.
    If I go too long (an hour?) without having a nice conversation with someone, I start to freak out.
    If I try to play a video game:
    - If it's a game I've played before in an attempt to calm myself, I end up stopping playing it because 'why am I wasting my time replaying this game?'
    - I get similar results with other games, and reading books.
    I've been having panic attacks on a weekly basis.
    This all started (reappearing, I've seen these symptoms before) after I started dating this wonderful woman, and my fears are going to become a self-fulfilling prophecy at this rate.

    I'm probably not totally alone on this - has anyone found anything helpful for dealing with these sorts of mental issues? I've cut out my caffeine intake.

      I'd go with option 1 and hope you start getting things under control before your new girlfriend decides you're batshit crazy.

      Definitely find another way to blow off steam, posthaste. Visit a botanical garden, walk in the woods, etc.

      IMHO drugs are just the bee's knees. They can guilt trip you into doing the right things in your life if you're a responsible enough drone.

  2. I'm going to have a party on December 14, but I have yet to decide how I'm going to celebrate it. I am fairly sure that you have no idea why I want to host a party on December 14. After all, I don't know of any holidays on that day and whatnot. The real reason for this is that I've determined that come December 14, my 30 day trial of Win-Ace will have been expired by 1000 days. It's going to be a Friday too! What luck!

    I'm probably am just going to buy some cupcakes/cookies and bring them to school. I hope that maybe I'll get some cake!

    It would be awesome if it snowed on that day....

  3. My map that I am working on right now...
    To the nearest thousand...
    5000 vertices/6000 linedefs/11000 sidedefs
    5/6 of all the lines in my map are two sided.
    Theres a good 1500 linedefs in one hallway and looking at the map as a whole it makes sense. It just seems odd enough to be worth mentioning.
    I'm looking at it in doombuilder and the nodebuilder... died horribly.
    BSP doesn't even build then nodes. Heh.

    And since you are here...
    Why does the buddy list take me to deathzor's second post? (which is in post hell nonetheless..)

      I'm going to guess Linguica has been having too much fun with mod_rewrite and messed a few things up. The CC3 forum link took me to PH yesterday, but now it's fixed.

  4. CHAPTER I: Evil Awakens
    It started out as an innocuous looking upgrade to Verizon FiOS. It couldn't be all that bad right? Faster ethernet, and a free router, a straight through cable, and a free ! Now we can have a network in our house and all of the goodies that come with one. I was wrong. When I started to create the LAN, I already was having issues, because naturally windows doesn't mix well with bad technology. For too long have I tinkered and toddered(?) with Windows and the router, and to this day, full functionality has yet to bless my life. (Actiontec made a deal with Verizon where Actiontec makes cheap routerse for Verizon so Verizon can cheaply propegate their evil FIOS. Actiontec MI424WR they are. Cheap. Crap.) I got a wireless connection thingy too, but that was flawed too. EVERY DAY I HAD TO REINSTALL THE THING. I switched rooms to where the router is. I install the wireless adapter hardware on my drivers parents computer, or so I wished. Windows froze before it could finish. (Damned programs that wait 2 - 10 minutes before starting) I restarted the computer so I could try again. WRONG. Windows gets stuck in an infinite loop of restarts. Windows cannot start try again, Windows cannot start try again.... Ugh. Format and fresh install. Father bought another straight through and drilled a hole in the wall. (UGLY. GET A DANGED FACEPLATE![or whatever they are called])I get the yellow cable. Yay, if it had been PROPERLY TERMINATED!!!!!!!!!!!!! These damned FiOs technicians can't make a friggin proper ethernet cable. (Goes out for 10 minutes to calm down)
    Chapter two to come soon!

      Ok then, the recent firmware upgrade for the router. Now it says verizon everywhere, the GUI is scrambled a little, (It was a little weird to begin with, but now...), and it takes nearly twice as long to do what you wanted to do. And the weirdest part...
      The password entry.
      [ ]
      You enter the first letter.
      [**** ]
      The second letter
      [*** ]
      The third letter
      [***** ]
      The fourth letter
      [****** ]
      A process similar to that occurs. You type in one letter, and 4 asterisks pop up. Type in again, and one of those dissappear!? It's hard enough to see if you accidentially doubled a letter, but now it's impossible.

      The router is a headache. And windows is like a punch in the stomach.

      Verizon does suck when it comes to UI's. That's why I flashed my Razr with Alltel firmware. You should check if you can do something similar with your router.

      Presumably it's to give visual feedback while not allowing an observer to see how many letters are in the password?

      The best solution I saw to that problem was on Irix, where a cursor is displayed that moves forward by a space when a character is entered in the password box. Effectively, like displaying a space character instead of a "*". You can see that your character has been entered, but an observer can't tell the number of characters because there is nothing for them to count.

    Have a wonderful lucky day!

  6. I have just been wondering of why I haven't seen Torn much in the forums. His last post according to his profile was a few months ago. He still *needs* to send in his map or whatever for CCP3!

      I was wondering the same thing until he showed up in irc last week after not having been there for quite a while. He said something about internet or computer problems. I'll find the log in a minute.

      He seems to come and go quite randomly.
