So I didn't really look into what you said much here until recently:
Warm node builder worked just swell for this purpose, thanks for pointing it out.. I'm enjoying AV mirrored without a bunch of engine hackery. Life is funny in that it took 8 years to revisit this.. time flies..
I miss the blogs forum. Status updates just aren't the same and there's things I'd post there that I wouldn't post as a Status.
Kind of brought out the sad realization that I haven't really been on Doomworld a lot the past few years outside of browsing and posting in Blogs.
In just two and a half months my Dad has deteriorated to just shy of bed-ridden.
Everything is fucking shit. Inoperable stage 4 Glioblastoma, from the first MRI/CT scan it was all 'Welp you're fucked, start sorting your affairs.', with the same answer on 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and probably more opinions. I've never felt more helpless.
I don't even know why I'm putting this here, I decided not to at first when I heard about traversd's situation with his son. I hope things go better for him than it is for us. We've been fully assured by every professional that my Dad's a dead man and we're just buying him some time.
On this day in life, I escaped the womb 24 years ago.
I have the most fascinating blog ever!!
That is all.
I don't really know why but I've been playing my N64 a shit ton lately, and I've decided to buy some games for it that I want.
I just got Doom 64 in the mail, this is the first time I've ever played the game on actual hardware and not emulation.. it's much, much better than playing it on an emulator. (music and some effects are kind of fucked up on emulators.)
I also got S-video cables in the mail for it, which on an HDTV looks much sharper than composite. I figured it would look better since everybody in the reviews said as much, but I'm pretty pleased to have my expectations exceeded.
I bought an extension cord for the controller.. and a replacement analog stick.
As anyone who has played a great deal of N64 could tell you, the default stick is prone to wearing out.
I've read some mixed reviews about this stick, but those seem to mostly stem from it not feeling exactly like the old analog and feeling more like a gamecube analog.. which suits me fine, that analog was great.
I think I shall go have a beer now.
My brother in-law's brother. I didn't know the guy all that well but I'm kind of freaked out about the whole situation.
According to the samaritans who got on the scene in less than 30 seconds after the impact, he was already dead when they got to him.
Yeah, that's all I really have to say about this now.
A relatively boring birthday, oh well, at least I have cake.

5 minutes, 26 seconds, 100% kills and secrets on UV.
Thanks, that was fun!
So I'm a 20 year old student trying to get my start in the IT industry, and part of that has been the 70-270 MCSE exam. I took it today about 7 hours ago, I was given two hours, and used damn near every minute trying to answer all the questions to the best of my ability.
I failed, by a margin of 2-3 questions. I have to say, it's doing little to cheer me up when I know so many people who find the Microsoft certifications to be embarrassingly easy.
I'm not going to give up, but I'm feeling pretty fucking depressed about it at the moment, especially when I see shit like this:
I realize you should never let these crazy smart kid cases get you down, but seeing that right after failing an exam just chokes me a little bit.
On the bright side, I can try again without it costing me anything.. I'll use this opportunity wisely.. *sigh*..
I really don't know where I'm going, especially with people saying the exams and certifications I'm going through are meaningless and wont help me in the long run. Outside of a low paying dead end job, this is my only option I've been able to turn to.. I don't want to do call center or fast food work for the rest of my life..
My sister is having her wedding in a somewhat remote area, so we're heading up early with the camper. I'll take some pictures.

SargeBaldy got married in a kind of interesting way. If I remember correctly, they got married in a courthouse, then went on a several-days-long hike for their honeymoon, then had a proper Quaker wedding with his wife's family. Something like that. I thought it was pretty cool.
how much is the plane ticket?
Dude, seriously? There are Buddhist temples all over the US, UK, etc.
Doesn't that exist in Japan (not families, but generally)?
I'll probably be going to that country soon (well, this year), and i bought a guidebook that said it's perfectly normal for a Japanese person to have thier birth blessed by a Shinto priest, have a Christian wedding and then depart the world in a Buddhist ceremony.
So, I'm 20. I've been apart of the Doom community in general since I was 13.
