    I'm gonna place a corrupted cathedral in the pwad I'm building. anyone know any good resouces for architecture, like floor plans and the like. if not has anyone seen a good one in other wads (don't worry, I wont rip them)I'm sure that a pretty kick-ass one could be built with zdoom. oh one more thing. the level will look like crap unless I get new textures, and I suck at bitmapping. anyone care to lend a hand? I need various building facades and a sick sky flat. I'm trying to go for a major metropolis under seige by hells army look. any help gets credit and mucho appreciation.

    actually one of the member, euronymos, found him, ran out to get a camera, took his picture, and then took a piece of his skull and supposedly made soup with it. a few years later he was stabbed to death by the aforementioned grishnahk, allegedly over a music deal gone bad. when police arrested him and his conspirators in the church burnings, they found ote books with logs of the crimes they commited, such as the murder of homosexual and his dog.

    yes it was a shame. they were beautiful works of art. many of then were built with out using a single nail. what some anti christian heathens found was that many of them were built on old hoffs or hogrs or groves that were used in worship of the old gods. thats why they became a target. again, it truly is a shame that xenophobic, closed minded idiots would destroy their own heritage, even if it was built on the bones of the old faith.

    actually what they were trying to do was destroy christianty in norway and bring back the old volkish (translates to folkish) religion, that being nordic heathenism. varg, who goes by the name count grishnahk, was a huge LotR fan and believed Sauron represented Odinn and the One Ring was Draupnir. he couldn't wrap his head around the fact that Gandalf was actually Odinn and the One Ring was actually the cursed Rhinegold Ring.

    I realy enjoy monopoly. I try going for the railroads or utilities and I also like being the slum lord (buying up the cheapest properties). one of my favorite alternate versions of monopoly is the LotR version. it gives you a good fast play option. it comes with a "one ring" and one of the die has the one (1) side replaced with the "eye of sauron". when the eye is rolled you advance the ring up one property. if the player lands on a property the ring is on and it's not owned, then he can get it for free. if it is owned the player has to pay double the rent. the game ends when the ring reaches mount doom (aka boardwalk). the players then total up all monies and property, including houses and hotels. the player worth the most is the winner. it's a fun variation, IMO.
  6. Well, it's been a week since I went in and had my right hip replaced. I'm home and dealing with the pain nicely with my oxycodone prescription. the sutures itch like crazy and my leg muscles are always stiff.

    for the surgery they put me to sleep and gave me an epidural. there were a couple of times during the procedure that I regained enough conciousness to hear them working on me. quite fun. the first nite after the surgery I was "kept comfortable" with morphine. fun in a different way.

    so now I'm home, walking on crutches. can't really bend over yet. for the first six weeks you can't bend over 90 degrees, so I have to use special tools to put on sock and shoes and pants. can't wait till all the precautions are over.

      As in you could hear the surgeons talking amongst themselves? Or do you mean you got the chance to hear them drilling your hip apart piece by piece?

      That would be totally metal.

      Sounds like you're well on your way to becoming a cyberdemon. Congrats! When do you get the rocket launcher?

      as in I heard them reaming my acetabulum and hearing the sounds of hammer tapping on metal as they rasped my femur. it was very metal.

      btw, here is a pic of my wound. I put a bic pen next to it for scale.

      ::edit:: just discovered today that because of my hip replacement my right leg is now longer than my left. it was a risk that was pointed out to me so it wasn't totally unexpected, but nonetheless sucks.

    Verizon FiOS: Forced?

    yeah, thats what happened when cable started going digital. I have cablevision andwhen they started goin digital it was just an option to switch, as advertised. then one day everyone on the block lost cable and were forced to upgrade to digital service. with the only other option being sattelite tv, which was less reliable then, prety much everyone "upgraded". now cable companies are pushing for customers to subscribe so they won't lose tv when they make that switch to digital. it's all a scam to me.
  11. it's been a while since I've posted. lots of stuff goin on here, most of which suck. first, and foremost, I am in danger of losing my job. the hospital that I work for, and it's sister facilty, is teetering on the edge of bankruptcy.

    for some more info read this article

    what sucks even worse is it's not just me. my father also works at the hospital. he's been workin for 23 years and is 54 years old. he has a debilitating disease and it would be even more difficult for him to find a job than it would be for me.

    to top it off, we just recently got our house in our name. it belonged to my grandfather, who passed away almost two years ago. he didn't leave a will, so we had to struggle to get the place that we've called home for 35 years. if both my father and I loose our jobs, there would only be one income, my brother's, in the house. if he can't keep up the mortgage payments by himself before I can find another job, we could lose the house.

    as stated in a previous post entitled "Medical Suckness", I have avascular necrosis of my hips. it's gotten worse and later this week I will be consulting a surgeon to schedule surgery. I'm hoping that the surgical option can help me. it could be up to a year before I get back to work since I have to get both sides done. I can't get them done at the same time since I can't bear any weight on the affected hip for 4-6 weeks.

    so that rounds up the latest bullshit in my life.

      well, I was laid off yesterday. they only had 18 patients in house that were eating, so they reduced the dietary staff accordingly.

      If you're ever out in my neck of the woods, I have space on my couch.

    Santa Claus will take you to hell!

    to be more specific, easter is taken from the celebration called Ostara. it's a celebration of the fertility goddess Eostre (which is pronounced east-ra. hmmmmm...), who may have originally been Figga, Freya or Hulda. Like most other pagan holidays, it was christianized. all the symbols and icons of the old ways were kept (ie: eggs and rabbits for easter, ornamented trees and mistletoe for x-mas) but the meanings behind them were changed to reflect the christian mythos.

    I'm dreaming of a Red Friday.

    actually it was Frigga originally, but became Freya later. some think the two goddesses are the same while others seperate them. as for black friday, it was a term that retailers came up with to describe the utter mayhem that comes the day after thanksgiving. they end up spending a fortune on sale advertisements and overtime pay for the employees and end up taking a loss on that day. this is because they discount most of the inventory to bring in more customers who don't buy as much as the retailers thought they would, thus the advertising and overtime eat up the profits they thought they'd be making. add to that the insane nature of the customers, ie: the walmart incident, the shooting at toy'r'us, you get one hell of a day. half the customers are just walkin around lookin at stuff and give up cuz there are too many people and not enough product. I got a crash course on this when I worked at tower video. lots-o-fun.

    Windows Vista is already obsolete !

    since my current rig is over 10 years old I had no reason to upgrade to vista. I had actually just upgraded it to xp when the vista launch was announced. I do plan on building a new rig, estimating sometime next summer, but I'm not going to be running anything spectacularly modern. I don't play any games on the computer except for doom and some console emulators. I really don't see the need to upgrade from an OS that I haven't had any major issues with. it's the big problem I have with these developers. they design systems with things they THINK we need or want. instead of coming up with the new ubercool visual interface, come up with something that is stable and uses memory efficiently. style over substance always fails it in my book.

    Election '08

    it's the state's constitution that was ammended, nit the US constitution. so far the laws governing marriage are decided at the state level. should a lawsuit that comes before the supreme court occur then it would be a federal government decision, much like roe vs. wade. at least thats my understanding of it.

    Michael Crichton, passes away at 66

    one of the best modern science fiction, with emphasis on actual science, writers. very sad that he's gone.
  22. well, I've been experiencing pain in my hips lately, sometimes so severe I have to walk with a cane. I had thought, and got one medical opinion that it may be bursitis. an MRI revealed that is is in fact avascular necrosis. what that means is the femoral head isn't getting enough blood so it is starting to break down. the only thing that could have led to this is that I drink alcohol daily. I used to drink heavily but I don't anymore. now I have to stop drinking completely.

    the most conservative treatment is taking NSAIDs, like like ibuprofen, and physical therapy. the next option is a surgical procedure called core decompression, in which they drill a hole in the femoral head to relieve pressure and hope to increase blood flow to the bone. if the degeneration continues, the next step is total hip replacement.

    so to sum up, this sucks.

      the worst part I think is gonna be the recovery and phyical therapy. I have to relearn how to use my hip. know it's limitations. the no sex for eight weeks is truly gonna suck as well.

    Predictions for increasing realism in CG gore

    yeah, I don't need that much realism in a game. I'm actually perfectly happy with great 2d games that play well as opposed to super fully rendered stylized games with no gameplay value.

    This monster belongs in DOOM

    heh, I'm in the same boat. my rig is about 12 years old. it's PIII also. I don't do much gaming on it. just some doom and emulator stuff. I want to see if I can build one that I can hook up to my future HDtv.
