The other one was too large and powerful; it had to be put down.

Here's a new one.  Smaller.  Trimmer.  Better smelling breath.

You guys know what to do.  GO!

You need to learn Zero's themes, both the upbeat one when he saves you, and then when he sacrifices himself. Those, along with some music from Sigma's place, and Boomer Kwanger's level music are the best songs in the game IMO.

Wow.  I installed Kubuntu on my laptop just to play with it just now.

I hate it.  I get errors when packages install successfully.  They make some thing (/etc/fstab, for one) completely stupid.  For some idiotic reason, they decided that using UUIDs to reference the partitions in a PC partition table would be a good idea despite the fact that it doesn't make any fucking sense (easy to change back, but still dumb), it flagged a distribution upgrade despite me having the latest version, then bombed when it realized that my distribution was, in fact, up-to-date.

Screw this.

lol yeah

I actually got it from a different source first but it wasn't as high of quality as the sows release.

Wired 360 controllers just plug into the PC. There's a driver for it maybe but that's it. It's a USB controller. That said, never EVER buy Capcom games for PC. EVER. Not a single one of them works right. Every PC release they've ever EVER had has been plagued by terrible problems.

Gamestop is currently having a deal where you get an extra 30% trade-in credit when you trade in 5 games or more and I've got at least 8 games to trade in, so we'll see if I get more than $20 total haha

This place has Zero's theme.

It's a pain to find others, so you might have to make do with using midis to learn. That said, there are TONS of midis floating around to use, and opening them in something like Guitar Pro can generate sheet music for it (well, within the program anyway, you can just make it display the musical staff instead of using the tabs).

Not sure how much this place will help, but here's Boomer Kuwanger's theme:
http://www.hamienet.com/midi27078_Boomer-Kuwanger.html

Is it just me, or is that sax out of tune? Kinda sounds to me like it's a little on the sharp side, though I may be wrong.
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, The Second Coming
Post by: TimJing on November 28, 2007, 11:41:17 PM
I found Boomer Kuwanger's theme at http://nutabs.com/tabs/megaman?symfony=2cb6664388676903bc23ef60c00bdeda

Took me a little bit to arrange, and I had to figure out how to use Guitar Pro (downloaded the demo for use in this endeavor) but I got suitable parts for me and my friend printed out. Gonna check out the Zero Rescue theme now.

Edit: Sadface, the Zero Rescue theme sucks. The only Sigma theme that place had was the second one, which sucks. And I don't see Zero's real theme on there, unless that IS his real theme. Either way, whatever. Boomer Kuwanger's theme is enough, and really all I need for now. We're most likely going to learn Setzer's theme after Boomer Kuwanger's theme.

The art on this page and the random inclusion of both, their blank profiles (contrast with Color Freq), the fact that Affinity and Onyx were both on the first Pump Pro betas (no licensing issues), the similarity in sound (Y2Z blows this one apart more than any other), Kyle Ward's general fetish for aliases, the fact that basically no info can be traced on either alias outside of ITG/Pump Pro, etc. etc. etc.

Wow.  I spent a whole day with Arch Linux before I went back to Gentoo.  I am a fanboy. :o

Actually, my main reason for switching back so soon was because some of the default settings in Arch were borderline bizarre.  I deal deal with most stock systems, be it Fedora, Debian, Ubuntu, Gentoo, whatever, but I literally couldn't use Arch without reconfiguring the crap out of it.

So now I'm sitting in tty1, waiting for things to compile in tty0 and listening to Machinae Supremacy via mpg123 running in tty3.  This is the life. :)

I also found that getting wpa_supplicant and netplug set up really isn't much of a hassle at all with Gentoo's init scripts.  I mean, holy crap it's so damn easy, and it makes life so much easier when I boot the system.

D&D's not quite the same when it's not in person. As well, everyone will need to have a copy of the pertinent books, though thankfully the core rulebooks are available on the 3.5SRD.

I have a friend who's like that in Magic. He uses a blue deck, which, according to ED, "is the basis of annoying "Control" decks which are inevitably found in the hands of some nerd who will invoke some rule of the game you didn't know existed in order to counter your every action."

I've always wanted to try D&D, I had a friend last year who played it like every weekend. He was planning on going to college this year, but didn't, and now all he does is D&D, haha.

Also, ten more minutes until the TV is free for me to get the last two stars in Galaxy! woo~

Honestly, I've always enjoyed RIFTS much more than anything D&D has. Character types and situations are just way more varied.

That said, I haven't played in nearly 8 years.

Anyway, Mass Effect is a pretty cool game. It's not ZOMG amazing or anything but it's fun.

It seems we have a good number of people that wouldn't mind playing D&D, and that's good.  Somebody does need to find a DM though, and we haven't discussed an actual IRC channel name.  Again, if I registered it, it would be on irc.esper.net.  Suggestions for the name?

I was talking my friend, and there's programs that could actually just do all of this for us, one of them being openrpg. It lets us have a virtual tabletop and stuff, along with having all of the irc functionality. That'd make it much simpler for the DM.

I also know of a program like that, in Java (see all of the FF6 tokens in my avatar?  I made them for this program).  I've never used openrpg.  We could give it a shot, if nobody doesn't mind.

Yeah, blue decks are VERY spell based. I love watching control decks or counter decks, it's so funny to watch someone get completely screwed when their opponent has about 2 1/1s out and nothing else.
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, The Second Coming
Post by: Ulti on December 03, 2007, 11:53:35 PM
Well, I just made a mostly blue deck that's completely non creature based, it's hideous. Treadwine Prophets + Protective Bubble + Merrow Harbringer = hilarity.

Prophets are "when dealing combat damage to an opponent, you may sacrifice a merfolk. If you do, take an additional turn after this one." Protective Bubble is an aura, creature is unblockable and has shroud. Merrow Harbringer is when it comes into play, search your deck for a merfolk, reveal it, and put it on top of your library. Attack with prophets, sac creature, play harbringer, get another harbringer, rinse repeat. It helps that the Prophets are 4/4's as well. It's hideous. The only real disadvantage is that the Prophets are 4UU (I think?), so it's not the quickest off the bat.

Haha, nice. What's Shroud? I haven't been keeping up with all those damned new abilities and such they keep coming out with. There are way too many of those now in my opinion. I'm used to the oldschool version 1 and version 1.5 rules. I had practically memorized the old rulebook that came with old starters. I began playing sometime just before they came up with Ice Age, lol.

RIFTS is nice...if you've got 12 eons to play. It has comprehensive rules for making anything conceivable, but it takes a billion years to get it all done. The main book is also the size of a small country.

Shroud's creature cannot be the target of spells or abilities. It's just one of the verbage changes they're recently added to make card wording more concise (like Deathtouch and Lifelink, which are destroy creature _ deals combat damage to and you gain life equal to combat damage _ deals, respectively).

Sounds like Prism. It's an adaptable system designed to let you play in completely custom settings. It allows you to create custom items, spells, and all sorts of stuff.

http://www.rpglibrary.org/systems/prism/toc.html It's somewhere around 140 pages, printed out in full, if I remember correctly, and that's only the base system.

No More Heroes just keeps looking cooler and cooler

I really do want it. At first the combat looked like repetitive slash slash slash then final blow, but now it looks a lot better with all of the punches that can stun and then go into a throwing move. Almost looks like God Hand.

Quote
Control in the game is a highlight of the experience, thanks to a very smart use of the Wii controller as well as a combo system tailor-made to show it off. You'll move Travis with the Nunchuk and use the C button to reset the camera behind you. When held down, the Z button locks on to your enemy, and it also automatically blocks if you're not attacking. You'll use the remote to attack by pressing the A and B buttons to punch and kick. You'll be able to perform powerful charge attacks by holding down either button for a bit. The remote's D pad will let you dodge attacks by pressing up, down, left, or right if you're locked on to an enemy, which works well. The B button will also let you initiate powerful multipart wrestling moves that will require you to follow onscreen prompts to wave the remote and Nunchuk in specific directions. The interesting wrinkle to your attack is that Travis' attack level is determined by the height at which you hold the Nunchuk and remote. Holding the controllers rather high causes all your attacks to land from around the chest up, whereas holding them a bit lower directs your attacks to the chest and below. This becomes an important element during battle when enemies start to block your attacks, and was also useful, in the case of the demo, during the boss fight. From what we figured out, if you can match the height of an incoming projectile from Destroyman and time your attack properly, you can actually bat it back at him.

This plus Devil May Cry 4 and Ninja Gaiden are going to be some of the best action games coming out.

I mentioned my timeline was this: Start.. ?? I dunno. End.. Sometime after Ice Age came out, probably about when chronicles came out.
I have cards from tempest, exodus, and another 1 or 2 of those as well (well, had, I doubt I own more than 5 cards any more.)

I started back just before 7th came out, and then stopped before the next set of slivers came out, so pretty quickly.

My first booster pack from 7th had a Serra Angel in it. Pretty good luck for me, lol.

It's the same system, for the most part. I think things are on a smaller scale, that's about it. I've played them both, and it was definately simpler to make a character for d20 Modern than for D&D, that's for sure. I'm going to have my campaign be mostly realistic, so there isn't going to be any mucking around with spells and such, so I'm going to have a modify the rules and potential classes a bit.

Plus, I prefer a sci-fi setting to a fantasy one.

dorble roast

I like the fact that the batteries for my laptop and my mom's laptop are mostly compatible.  This is one of those rare moments where my laptop is completely disconnected from everything.  I'm so used to being plugged into the wall that when I shifted positions I literally took care to keep the non-existent power cord from being tugged out or pulled.

By "mostly compatible" I mean that my lappy won't charge her battery.  I doubt that was an intentional design element since her laptop can charge my battery (well, when it was actually still able to hold a charge, that is ;)), just one of those dealies where my laptop doesn't really know what the hell the battery actually is.

Meh, I wish I understood more about the control circuitry on Li-Ion batteries.  I know basically what it all does, I just want to know more about what it actually sends to the computer, aside from charge information; model specific stuff.

Edit: Also, it's kind of amazing how much more power dual-core processors suck down.  Her laptop (Inspiron E1505 with an 1.73GHz Core Duo and an Intel GMA) lasts about 2:30 while my system (Inspiron 9300 with a 1.73GHz Pentium-M and a RADEON X300) lasts more than 4:20 (lol 420).

Speaking of the whole charging situation, to make matters even more facepalm-y, my charger works with hers but her charger doesn't work with mine, due to hers only requiring a 65W AC adapter and mine requiring a 90W one.  I can't win! XD

That's odd, but I've seen similar things happening with cellphone batteries. I've used chargers for different brands and really had no problems, while I've heard horror stories when the same thing is tried. I guess it just depends on the make of your phone (or laptop!) and the battery you're using.
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, The Second Coming
Post by: Spectere on December 07, 2007, 04:01:50 PM
You're generally fine as long as you make sure that both devices use the same voltage and pump out enough amps.  For instance, I wouldn't charge my phone (Motorola V3x) on my mom's charger (she has a Moto V3) despite them both using a mini-USB jack simply because her charger doesn't put out the same amperage as mine (I forget the exact figures).  The Moto triples phones (V400/V500/V600), on the other hand, shares the same charger with many of the other V-series phones, such as my old V620 (currently my dad's -- as far as features go, it's a V3 RAZR in a V600 shell with considerably better styling).

The Nokia phones that I've used industry-standard jacks and have all basically had interchangeable chargers.  The old Motorola phone that I had way back when (1999?  2000?) used the same charger as my Nokia 3595 and 6010, if I remember correctly.  I love those kind of phones; you can get a fairly inexpensive AC adapter from Radio Shack that'll do the trick rather than paying out the ass for an official charger should yours ever get lost/stolen/broken.
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, The Second Coming
Post by: Ulti on December 07, 2007, 04:49:46 PM
Yeah, my phone's a Nokia, and apparently the charger seems to work for basically everything it fits in, which is nice. However it seems like no one else in the universe has a Nokia. Which is strange to me, because for a budget phone, mine really kicks ass. It's in the same price range as the razr, ie free with your plan, but it's much more reliable, and looks better as well. I swear, razrs fail it, but everyone thinks they're awesome because they're all skinny-like. Sure, my phone is thicker, but it's also better in every way.

RAZRs are impressive for the simple reason that they cram 2.5G technology (now 3G!) in such a ridiculously small case.  They're also pretty damn cheap now.

Also, don't discount the mini-USB port.  You can do some incredible things with Motorola phones just by having access to a data port.  Since it uses such a standard cable, anyone can hack the shit out of any of the released RAZRs.

I just started today. I haven't done anything external yet.

The reason I chose it is because when I installed Ubuntu 7.10 on my computer, I found interpreter/compilers for C++, Java, Perl, and Python in the installation. For whatever reason, I chose to learn Perl first. I've been meaning to teach myself a programming language, but I never really committed myself to it. Now that I have Ubuntu, it's really easy. Way easier than learning on XP.

You're allowed to say the name "BitTorrent," y'know... XD

Also, file sharing is legal; what most people do with it isn't.  I'm sure you wouldn't use this program for anything illegal, riiiiiiiiight?? ;)

Anyway, give Soulseek (http://www.slsknet.org/) a shot.  It's a great way of getting...perfectly...legal...files, especially music.

yay! this works just perfectly for my perfectly legal doings. I just needed a program to get singular songs rather than entire albums. Now I have utilities to do both :D yay me

thank thee, sire.

It depends more on the network than the phone in a lot of cases.  My mom's RAZR and my V3x (still technically considered a RAZR, but it's much thicker and is 3G) stomp the shit out of our old Nokia phones, and are on par with the LG and Samsung phones that I've used on T-Mobile.  Also, RAZRs are generally GSM phones (aside from the V3m and similar CDMA ones).  CDMA networks are older and better-established, so it goes without saying that you're going to get better reception on those kinds of networks (which are the very ones that older phones tend to use).

I still prefer GSM for the freedom of it.  You don't get locked into using the phones available from AT&T and T-Mobile (or Rogers, in Canada); I bought mine retail.

yay! this works just perfectly for my perfectly legal doings. I just needed a program to get singular songs rather than entire albums. Now I have utilities to do both :D yay me

And I'm sure you're only getting songs with expired copyrights, or perfectly legitimate, freely distributed songs. ;)

Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, The Second Coming
Post by: Ulti on December 08, 2007, 06:27:55 PM
What's that do, just like, delete everything? D:
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, The Second Coming
Post by: Spectere on December 08, 2007, 07:19:08 PM
Here's a quick explanation:

The "rd" command deletes an empty directory.  In Windows NT, if you use the "/s" switch, it'll delete a directory and all of the files in it.  If you add the "/q" switch, it'll do so without prompting.

The "for" command allows you to create loops that work by cycling through files, cycling through directories (either recursively or not), going through a set of numbers, or processing a text file and pulling tokens from that.  When using the "/d" switch with the set "*", it cycles through all of the directories in the current one.

"for" works by putting each matching token into a variable and allowing you to do whatever you like with it in your command (which is specified after "do").  In this particular case, "d" is the variable.

So, basically, "for /d %d in (*) do rd /s /q %d" cycles through all of the directories names in the location that you ran the command from and passes them to the "rd" command for deletion.  It does have some limitations, though.  It doesn't delete directories with the "hidden" bit set, it doesn't traverse backwards through the directory structure (basically, it won't follow ".." -- i.e. going back to the previous directory -- and wipe out the entire drive), and it doesn't delete the files in the directory that it's run from.

Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, The Second Coming
Post by: Spectere on December 09, 2007, 01:25:08 AM
If you were to run it in the root directory, yeah.  It obviously wouldn't wipe out files that were in use and such, but it would do quite a bit of damage.

ALSO, I got to play on a free play'd ITG2 tonight.  The coin mech on the machine broke and allowed my acquaintances to access the operator menu.  Many hard songs were played on first stage tonight. :P

Man, I could talk about DDR experiences right now...in fact, I think I shall!

I like it when hot girls go "WOW!" when they see me do something incredible (playing no bar is also a plus), but my favorite is when a group of black people watch me play. Oh my god, it's amazing. Let me tell you of 2 stories.

1st story - I was in a bowling alley in Atlanta, Georgia to play DDR one night. I was playing like usual, when a bunch of black people were watching me play. They gave me compliments like "Damn son, you're good!" Well...I finish Across The Nightmare oni, and get an FC (only an A though :(). Here's the thing though; as soon as I'm done playing the song, one of the black people go, "DAMN, SOMEONE STOLE THE WHITE OUTTA THIS KID!"

Made my fucking day, man.

2nd story is not as entertaining. Basically, I FC Broken My Heart with 18 greats on a SuperNOVA machine, and a black crowd cheers like MAD FUCK. Like...I was LilQ getting a quadstar in a tournament.

Moral of my post? Black crowds > Scene crowds, although you might get a girlfriend through a scene crowd. ;)

If any scene girls show up at the cafe, they are nearly always attached to some dork or they're ugly. Or too young. They say the perfect age for a girl is half your age plus six years but that'd be 17 for me so maybe it doesn't work so well. Or maybe it's perfect hohohoho

I'm 19, they're 15. Small issue. Of course, the larger issue is that I already have a GF, but I can still look.. It just kinda sucks when they're 4 years younger than me... Once you get to be 19, and you see 15 year olds and stuff, they look so young to you. You know how you always think you're so mature, no matter what age you are, and that you should be granted all sorts of freedoms and stuff as you grow up, but your parents don't let you.. Well, I can understand them. Hell, in my canadian law class, which was a grade 11 class (though I was in grade 12 at the time), the class almost unanimously voted that we should increase the legal age of consent for sex till at least 16, because they understand that honestly, 14 and 15 year olds shouldn't really be allowed to have sex... You're just not very mature at 14 or 15. Even 16 is kinda low.

Aye, I did. Got to see my entire mom's side of the family, all of whom live in or near the Louisville area. Me and my sister stayed with my cousin (his sister, who's also our cousin stayed with him too, and their spouses), who's got a kickass house. He bought an $80 bottle of bourbon just for the occasion, and we both got completely wasted Friday night (he's 29 btw). It was so much fun.

Oh, and he's like the jesus of Goldeneye too. Down here I rape everyone at the game, but I played him and christ, he beat me 16-7 in a 10-minute pistols license to kill match. Then he played my sister (the "queen" of goldeneye, hahaha) and beat her 23-3 (the 3 on her end were pity points haha).

I am not bad with grammar (well, basic grammar), but I'm really bad at learning vocabulary. That's always been my problem learning languages. I can read a decent amount of french simply because I know the latin rots, since about 60% of english words are latin based. However, I'm having a really hard time teaching myself japanese vocabulary, and the more advanced grammar. I have no way to really figure out where some things go in a sentence and stuff, because there's nothing on the net that accurately breaks down sentences and tells you where different things go. Like, 予定 (よてい) (Yotei) "planning to". I wouldn't have the slightest idea where to stick it.

And, single player mode works properly in DOSBox. In windows (even in win95 compatibility mode) it didn't work at all.
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, The Second Coming
Post by: Spectere on December 13, 2007, 03:04:25 PM
The compatibility modes don't do anything for DOS programs.  I believe the only thing they do for Windows programs is hook certain calls so that the system reports itself as being an older version and looks like it is, too.

I've gotten the single player mode to work on my computer in XP (albeit far too fast to be playable), so it might be one of those "works on some, fails on others" things.  Regardless of what caused yours not to work, DOSBox saved the day. :D
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, The Second Coming
Post by: Bobbias on December 13, 2007, 03:18:29 PM
Lol, yeah. When I'd try single player on mine without DOSBox, it would just terminate. No warning, just gone. I tried a number of times, too.
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, The Second Coming
Post by: annon on December 13, 2007, 06:50:06 PM
The compatibility modes are just for commands. Like, the deltree command doesn't work on Windows 2000 and up, so if you set the compatibility mode to something like 98 and type in deltree /y C:\*.*, you'll delete everything. If the mode is set to XP, it won't recognize the deltree command.
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, The Second Coming
Post by: Spectere on December 13, 2007, 08:16:11 PM
"deltree" doesn't work in XP because the program itself hasn't been included with Windows XP.  Instead, it's been rolled into the built-in rd shell command, as "rd /s".  Changing the compatibility mode isn't going to make it work again.

Not for a while yet. Honestly, Mass Effect ended up kinda lame. Story's boring, characters don't interact enough and your own character is too malleable to be interesting.

That, and the massive amount of recycling of locations, character models, gestures and any number of things.

It's way too easy too.

One more week to go, but I'm tired as hell due to lack of sleep this week, so thank goodness for the weekend and being able to sleep in.

Also, scholastically, this week was a joke. I had no homework (as usual) and also no projects or tests to worry about. Essentially I slept through or chilled in all of my classes. It was great. :D

Post by: Bobbias on December 17, 2007, 01:06:51 AM
Good movie

My faith in humankind has just been lessened. That movie looks like the worst sort of movie ever made. Hell, I will admit that I'm actually interested in watching that new movie, crap, I forget the name. It's playing in select theaters now and it's a chick flick and all that. It had some sorta pretentious name. anyway, that looks like it actually has a story and is decent (and even though it's a chick flick, I'd probably like it), but I cannot stand movies like Hitch. I mean, romantic comedies for the most part tend to combine the worst aspects of both genres. Terrible jokes, and lame love stories. They RARELY ever have anything resembling a good plot, in my opinion. I mean, I watch shoujo anime because it is much more plot drive and has a lot more character development than most shounen, and I'd watch some chick flicks if they were like that. However, romantic comedies are, in my opinion, the biggest failure in move making since the oldschool B movies. At least those were entertaining due to the terrible acting.

EDIT: Fuck. I don't know what he did, or how he did it, but somehow, my brother just broke our old mouse. We switched mice a while back because the one we'd been using with this computer was making double clicks when you only meant to make single clicks, and stuff. Now, my brother switched the one we were using back, because the mouse wheel stopped working. I switched back to test it, and it worked fine, but then something weird happened. It started losing power. It kept flickering on and off really quickly and fucking up, and now it's broken.A perfectly good mouse is now broken, and we're forced to use a shitty mouse that I had considered throwing away because it sucked so much. Fuck, my brother is an idiot. EVERYTHING he touches that's electronic seems to break. I swear to fucking god. I buy a $55 headset, about 6 months later, and it's broken, thanks to him. I get a set of headphones from a friend who had some extras. A week after lending them to him, they're broken. I get a dual monitor setup, a couple months later, one monitor is dead, thanks to him. And now a perfectly fine mouse is broken. FUCK. How is this fucking possible? FUCK.

I swear to god I'm going to ban him from touching anything electronic I own pretty soon.

So I think I have officially switched to Opera. I'm sorry but it's just way better so far. It's faster, for one thing. There are little thingers here and there that are different which I enjoy. Also, all of the Firefox extensions I use very frequently, come stock with Opera. I don't like or use the default theme, though. I just have a nice visual style installed, and set the skin to "Windows Native" so it nicely blends in with everything else.

The only real thing so far that I don't like is the fact that it doesn't come with a spell-checker. You have to download and install Aspell and a dictionary for it to work, and even then, it doesn't do the "check-as-you-type" thing. That is a surprising thing to leave out, I think. More people should use that shit :|

So anywayzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzhzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz my new life starts tomorrow. I have to leave now, but I'll explain later. Essentially, I am moving out of my current place into a sweet little trailer outside my dad's house (whom I get along with really well [and his wife (my step-mom) is awesome, too]) so I can save a shitload of money on rent and other things. I've been wanting to move for a REALLY long time because my life is just sort of turning to shit these days, in many, many aspects. So I have decided that I'm going to stop being such a fucking lazy, apathetic, dumbass failure and start doing all the shit I've been severely wanting to do for a long time. I figure, with such a big (and alegedly good) change of scenery, it's the perfect time to re-shape and renovate my life into something meaningful.

I guess I explained a bit more than I thought I would. OH WELL. I should go now.

If you haven't noticed, Hitch was used more as an example and an entry point than the exact movie in question. I was talking about romantic comedies in general. Some are better than others, but as far as I'm concerned, they're pretty much all concentrated failure.

Rundown of the last little while, seeing as I haven't posted in Christ knows how long:
-Got a new computer (Thank God)
-Got Mass Effect
-Spent $150+ on my girlfriend for Christmas :-\
-Started watching the anime Welcome to the NHK (Which is pretty badass, imo)
-I've been sick randomly for the last few weeks, including now.

I'm pretty sure I have whooping cough or something. I tried going to sleep last night feeling like utter crap, and then had this nightmare when the oxygen was heavier than air or something and I couldn't breathe properly. I felt like I was being smothered the entire night. To make it worse, I haul my ass to school this morning, despite feeling worse than ever for my Sociology test. I get there, and what do you know, it's been fucking postponed. So instead we're all taking notes and I pretty much passed out, forcing my teacher to call the office and then calling my stepdad to pick me up. Ugh. I've been sleeping on and off since about noon today, and it's not really showing any signs of stopping anytime soon.

So I spent the night at my friends house the other day, and we made some chunky margaritas.  Against myself and his girl's advise, he put more ice in the blender than we needed too. Thus resulting in clumpy rather than smooth frozen margaritas. 

When she left we went to the Bacardi and put them in our Jolts..  Very interesting results.. my Jolt Ultra rather disguised the taste of the rum quite well, but his Jolt Cola accentuated the whole thing, making it kick you in the mouth when you drank it.

Had two or three medium sized glasses of that, and rode a nice buzz during the resulting NCAA 08 game. Full of fumbles and interceptions and Fouls.

That's how I felt, took for fucking ever to start, then once it did it was violent and insane, plus it really did have a good plot.

Suicide runs. Early on it's really the only thing you can do. Electrical buckshot seems to work well. Once you get the crossbow, though, it's pretty much a joke. Upgrade the damage on it, and you'll be taking them down in 5 or 6 shots.

You download the pack from Xbox Live if you have the 360 version. You have to play both parts though, which makes the devil battle basically retarded.

Bioshock is difficult if you treat it like a shooter. Keep in mind that Big Daddies don't attack you unless you hurt them first. Early on, electrical buck, electro bolt + anything and getting them to run into areas with exploding things is a good idea. Later on, setting proximity mine fields for them to run through makes them too easy.

Yeah it is pretty fun, I couldn't beat it for the longest time, now I love it and play it every time I put on GH2. That, Psycho Billy Freakout, free bird and 1 other song I forget the name of it though. I need to get to the status of being able to constantly beat Jordan on expert though. I've only ever beat it once, and can't beat it afterwards now, so I needa practice that.

I've started playing GH2 after a couple of months, and I got a whole lot better. I can strum a lot faster now because I strum by rotating my hand rather than moving my entire arm, but now whenever I rotate my hand outside of the game it feels really, really weird.

Yeah, so I broke the spring system in my whammy bar a few months ago, so I fixed my whammy bar using a fairly novel system: I opened up my controller, got a rubber band, and took advantage of all of the empty space in the controller to make the rubber band just tight enough to almost match the actual spring.

I still don't have GH3, though. I would've bought it for myself today, but I don't know whether or not I'll get it for Christmas. This is the only thing I don't like about the season.

I could probably BS my way though that song, I get around an 85 when I play it on pro faceoff, but the beginning is just stupid. I can full-combo the thing on the second-fastest setting in practice, but I just don't really think my hands are big enough to comfortably stretch that much while keeping the green button held down, and at that speed.

I 100%'ed Reptilia a while back, though, that was satisfying.

I've played between 10-15 hours of rock band at my friend's house every weekend since it came out though. It's so much easier but way fun with 3/4 people.

http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3012858&CatId=2306

Honestly, is there really need for 1GB of memory on a card that will choke on anything decently intense anyway?
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, The Second Coming
Post by: Spectere on December 24, 2007, 10:10:59 AM
There isn't 1GB on the card, it just has the capacity of using using system memory should additional texture RAM be needed.  A large part of the reason that low-end cards choke is due to texture swapping (my 128MB GF6600GT at home has a problem with newer games for that very reason).  Having a nice and large space to load textures -- even if it is in system memory -- would help to increase the performance.
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, The Second Coming
Post by: Bobbias on December 24, 2007, 10:17:44 AM
I meant on complex graphic processing... I mean, sure, I'd opt for that over other cards at that price, if I was going to be buying a cheap-ass card and playing games that would push ti to it's limit, texture wise, but I'd rather spend a little more money and get a card that won't run like shit the second something needs some complex gemoetry processing.

Also, how do I fix Stepmania. My brother fucked up my graphics drivers, i reinstalled them, and now Stepmania skips frames, enough for it to really bother me when playing. I HATE jerky arrow movement.

Not everyone needs a high-end graphics card.  The card that you linked to would be perfect for someone like my dad.  It has enough power to run decent games and enough texture memory to handle newer games with the settings dropped.

My card could beat it if you strictly go by GPU performance, but that card would probably run newer games smoother (or, at the very least, with crisper textures) than mine solely due to the fact that it has double the texture memory.  It's a fine card for what you pay for it.

Also, how do I fix Stepmania. My brother fucked up my graphics drivers, i reinstalled them, and now Stepmania skips frames, enough for it to really bother me when playing. I HATE jerky arrow movement.

Go into the StepMania.ini and you should see an option that specifies whether to use Direct3D or OpenGL.  Try using the opposite of what it's using.

If you want to track NES-like stuff, try FamiTracker (http://famitracker.shoodot.net/).  If you want to track C64-like stuff, try GoatTracker (http://cadaver.homeftp.net/tools.htm).

Other than that, uh...I dunno.  You could always use chip samples in MPT; same basic effect and you usually get more effects at your disposal.  You could also use a VST plugin such as QuadraSID with OpenMPT since that supports VSTs.

There's also MilkyTracker and MadTracker (which supports VSTs). There's actually quite a range of trackers out there. I mean, most songs done in MadTracker aren't even retro. That program is designed to bring tracking into modern music. (or modern music into tracking.)
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, The Second Coming

Those don't make writing chiptunes any easier, though.  MadTracker supports VSTs so you could use something like QuadraSID but MilkyTracker is just another tracker.

OpenMPT also has the advantage of being based off Modplug Tracker, a program that Pancake seems to be already familiar with.

So my grandparents went to buy me a sidekick LX, but they wouldn't let them get any of the discounts that they would give me since it's my account. 

Now I have the money it takes to get one, from them.

But no fucking t mobile stores are open on xmas.

How the FUCK do you NOT have ANY locations open on xmas with all these kids getting cellphones from these stupid parents that don't know how to fucking buy or activate shit, so they get it before xmas, and all the kid gets is a dead piece of fucking plastic and can't do shit with it tomorrow.

I don't even get the piece of plastic, the funds to buy it. I'm fucking raping them tomorrow when they open.  I'm pissed.

Don't worry though, I am grateful and all that good stuff that they actually thought of me to do that.

Fuck t mobile.

Quoted for the utter truth. I've had SO much more trouble with supposed "plug it in and it works" than "well, you have to do all this shit to make it work, and the manual weighs like, 10 lbs."

Seriously, the manual for this shit is about 6 pages, and none of it has ANY info on how to actually configure it, or warns you about any possible problems it might have. It doesn't even talk about needing DHCP or anything, it just says what order to plug it in, and when to install the programs. The manual says absolutely nothing about how to set it up, beside when to plug what in. Nothing about network settings, DHCP, how to set up static IPs for it or anything.

Post by: Sneaky on December 25, 2007, 05:48:55 PM
Well I didn't mean to make it out like I'm complaining about the whole thing, I should rephrase it as more a conversational debate. As a business owner of a quite common place to get someone a gift, do you think it would be more beneficial in the long run, if your place of business was open for consumers to either exchange or get support/activation for the products these people are getting for gifts? You could take the humanity side, which is stay closed so your employees don't work those hours, or you could be business/money minded and keep it open limited hours so people that really need certain things for their  products can get them without waiting.  The majority of the people in our society want instant gratification, and some businesses like WalMart are evil enough to grant it, on holidays like christmas.

I am totally against a boss MAKING someone work.. but some people really need that extra kick on their check for that holiday pay. 

And I would work on christmas if it was a)after I opened gifts, and b) got holiday pay.
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, The Second Coming
Post by: Spectere on December 25, 2007, 07:35:37 PM
I just don't see why stores should have to be open every single day of the year.  Maybe I'm just weird, but I see absolutely no reason to go out during holiday seasons.  I had no desire to go to any stores today.  I spent time with my family and we all had a good time.  The mere thought that many people have to work today against their will (as I've been subjected to on several Thanksgivings, Easters, etc) just pisses me off.

This crap about stores and places being open on holidays does nothing more than cheapen the holiday.  I'm pretty convinced that the only reason holidays still exist nowadays are for corporations to make extra money at set times of the year.  It's ridiculous.
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, The Second Coming
Post by: TimJing on December 25, 2007, 09:56:19 PM
That seems to be a common mantra among us like-minded youth, that holidays nowadays are nothing more than commercial periods of time in which every ad and  instance of media tells you/reminds you to buy something.

Woo long sentence. Hopefully that made some sense. But yeah, materialism blows. I didn't even ask for anything this year, all I honestly wanted was just to spend time with my family and girlfriend. In the end, I got that, but not without my mom interrogating me as to which items I "want" her to buy me for Christmas.

I coincidentally got another one of the games I asked for from my friend (who also coincidentally bought me the same exact game I bought him- Contra 4- but he bought the last copy GameStop had, and they were forced to give him the Display copy of the box with the game >_>)

Actually, I wonder if the Display copy will be worth more than the actual box someday :x

Yeah, we don't have any benefits at the moment, and we're not doing all that well financially, and it's more expensive for me to get dental work because I HATE dentistry, and need special things to deal with it (You know, general anesthetic and such.) I very likely require 1 or more root canals, which I'm REALLY not looking forward to. If it keeps up, I'm going to tell my parents that I need to see a dentist, and shit.

Good for you, I dunno what I'm doing for new years exactly. I should be drinking (If I'm not in bed from my fucking toothache), however, things might fall through, if we can't find a place to drink.

Oh, and dorky or not, getting to sleep with your GF is always nice. There's only been 1 time where I spent an entire night with my GF sleeping on the same thing without other people nearby :/ Albeit it was a trailer, it was on one of those tables that become insanely uncomfortable beds, and her mom was passed out on the real bed.

Actually, if I'm still taking my medication, which is pretty likely, I'm not drinking. My mom told be about how bad she got when she accidentally drank when taking some medication.... I'd rather not re-live the night I had to go to the emergency room from drinking. (well, the passing out and being sick parts anyway.)

thank god those Tylenol 3's act quickly... Codeine is fun... (and helps a LOT with the pain.) If only these were Tylenol 4's instead. (Which are double the strength of T 3's. T 3's have 30 mg codeine, where T4's have 60, lol.)

Root canals are expensive but are almost painless. Getting a filling is worse.

Well, if it involves having a needle inserted into my mouth to freeze me, then something's gonna have to be done differently, because there's no way they're doing that when I'm awake. I hate needles as it is, so if they have to give me on in my mouth, there's no fucking way I'll be able to make myself do that.

So yeah, lost the fuel key to my car and also left my lights on overnight, killing the battery. I am really cool.

I also did end up getting pretty tipsy last night, which is I guess why I forgot to turn the lights off. I was sitting there listening to German Christmas songs for, like, a half hour after midnight, and then kinda just went inside without noticing them.

He probably has a locking gas cap.

I ended up getting one of those for my old Toronado after some fuckwit siphoned gas out of my tank when I was 8 miles from home, causing me to run out before I could even get to a gas station.

Also: I've left my lights on before, I'm sure everyone does that at some point.

I don't think it'd be possible to accidentally leave them on with my Satty; the alarm is annoyingly loud on it.

What kills me are some of the newer cars.  The car companies are getting so damn cheap that they're tying the door and warning chimes into the audio system.  That's all well and good until you try to do what everyone who listens to a lot of music in their car does -- upgrade your head unit.  Needless to say, I still have my loud, annoying warning chimes while my Cavalier-driving cousin has absolutely NOTHING.  Way to drop the ball, GM.  I doubt they're the only company that does that, too.

The review says it's like Quake and Twisted Metal Black thrown together, then he cries and gives it a low rating just because the game is slightly hard (I've already beaten about half of the death matches, so it's not that hard really) and gives it a low rating. God Hand anyone.

Well I was totally wrong when I said I had permanently switched to Opera. I don't know why I keep fooling myself, I've tried using Opera before. I seriously just felt better when I started using Firefox again. Like, clicking on it in the task bar felt more "solid" or something.

Also, I discovered a really useful about:config modification that makes pages load really fuhreakin' fast.

Oh and also, as for the breaking up thing, I think it's going to be alright. She doesn't seem to be in any danger of hurting herself, although she called me claiming that her anxiety has come back and that she wants to get tested for AIDS (seriously, don't ask). This isn't the first time we've broken up, either. Or the second. But it will definitely be the last.

I feel way better though. Hooray for me.

P.S. I just rented a movie called Ice Spiders. I'll let you know how it is.

EDIT: I saw the teaser for this movie a while ago, but apparently it's coming out this month. It's called Cloverfield and it looks quite interesting.

Yeah, if you use too much Afrin, you essentially destroy your sinuses. Plus, if you use it for more than two or three days you get 'addicted' to it, and actually suffer rebound congestion because you've damaged your sinuses enough for them to swell up even without you being sick/having allergies.

Horror stories about that stuff aside, it's essentially a miracle drug when it comes to congestion. If you get a cold, use that, you'll be able to breathe normally for 12+ hours on a single dose easily.

Doesn't surprise me at all considering how badly it burns when you first spray it.

As for the addiction thing, I don't think I've really been using it enough for my system to become dependent on it.  I've mainly been depending on Sudafed to keep my head clear while I sleep; it's always worked quite well for me.

Not at all -- the only thing separating Ohio from Canada is Lake Erie, I believe.

I'm also only an hour and a half away from Ashtabula -- one of the north-most points of the state -- so it's no wonder we get the same weather as Canadia. :P

Post by: Sqthreer! on January 05, 2008, 12:21:26 AM
Okay... so I watched Ice Spiders. After about twenty minutes, I easily decided that it was a great contender for a bad review. But as I continued to watch, I lost track of all the things I could rip apart because of the overwhelming quantity of them. About forty-five minutes in I gave up on thinking of bad things to say about it, and decided it would be MUCH easier to note the things I liked about it, since there were drastically less of those.

For some reason, I liked the main character, Dash. His acting wasn't terrific, but he was funny, and somewhat convincing. Although, compared to most of every other actor in the film, he was brilliant.

Aside from him, I sort of liked the ending. It wasn't insanely clever or climactic, just a lot better than what I was expecting. I won't give it away fully, but it isn't one of those movies where all the monsters are ultimately blown up or shot to pieces. There wasn't an obvious cliffhanger, but there is room for a sequel. That's all I'll say.

If you want to know whether or not to watch it, I say YES. But don't spend any of your money on it, because you will be much more let down. And I only recommend to watch it for comedic value, and probably with a bunch of self-proclaimed film critiques (such as myself) who are ready to laugh hysterically at all the inconsistencies and very obvious amateurish mistakes.

Yeah, I know it's a stimulant.  I don't really have any trouble sleeping after taking it, though.  It's kinda like when I downed a Monster M-80 and promptly fell asleep...I'm weird like that.

If I actually have some solid time to devote to sleep I'll take a Benadryl.  I pretty much have to make sure I have at least 8-10 hours because those things knock me out.  First time I took one I was sitting there, playing Max Payne on my laptop.  Ten minutes after I took it I finished up the first level.  In the ten seconds that it took to load the next level I dozed off.  Sitting straight up, my left hand on my keyboard, my right hand on my mouse.  Apparently, I looked hilarious.

Jesus, nice connection. My stats are something like 3 mb/s, but in reality, is 2.48 (310 kB/s), and my upload is capped at 0.448 mb/s, (56 kB/s). Kinda sucks, but my home line can't handle any faster. We idle at like, 80% line consumption and our SnR is about 5 db, which is a bit below the technical minimum safe zone of 6 db. We've always had shitty house lines. If the infrastructure around my town supported it, we could get an upgrade to 6 mbits, instead of 3 (for free), but even if the town got it, we'd be stuck with 3. I wish there was a way to drop both of those stats to something a bit more manageable.
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, The Second Coming

That's the same speed I get at my parents' house in Ohio -- 3mbps/512kbps DSL (6mbps/768kbps for the Elite package).  The cable company (Time Warner) totally sucks there.  Their cable TV is fine, but their Internet speeds are atrocious.  They advertise themselves as being a bazillion times faster than DSL yet half of the time you don't end up with even close to the rates that you're supposed to get (let's just say I was using my friend's "7mbps" connection and, after speedtest.net'ing it, found that he was only getting roughly 512kbps because the connection was so lousy).

Of course, in Struthers the cable company wound up inheriting another company's mess.  We originally had Adelphia in that area, but when they got pwnz0red Time Warner ended up taking it over.  Sadly, the connection speeds were even worse when Adelphia was in charge -- at least Time Warner's been cleaning it up since they took over.

Interestingly enough, the ISP that I'm using here in Tampa is Time Warner Business.  One thing that I do need to get is a new Ethernet cable (from the front desk or whatever).  The clip broke off of it and it keeps falling out of my Ethernet plug when I move my laptop.  The hotel put a little weighted block on the cable, presumably to prevent it from moving around while you work.  Well, it works.  Unfortunately, it does too good of a job in this case.

I ended up fixing the problem by pushing the weighted part as close as I could get to my computer and wedging it in place with my external hard drive.  I'm going to see if the people up front could give me another cable, though...it's annoying suddenly having the Internet connection cut out.

So the other day we upgraded from the agonizing pain of SBC Yahoo DSL's lowest dsl connection to Roadrunner Cable.

Damn.

Average download speed for me all my life has been around 38 kb/s. Now I'm going upwards of 400 kb/s. It's like a new world for me. I don't have to watch a video say "buffering" for 10 minutes to watch a 5 minute video without stuttering anymore.

The only downside is that my torrent downloads aren't very fast, around 80 kb/s. It may be due to the fact that the peers aren't uploading as fast as I can download. It may also be that I've been having a hard time forwarding ports on this new modem.

Everyone you've heard talk about it are WRONG.

No, not really, they're entitled not to like it I guess.

It was written and directed by the guys who created and starred in Reno 911, another great movie.

I just looked it up on IMDb and I'm in awe at how bad it is being rated and reviewed. This movie seriously has some very convincing and unique comedic value to it. The acting is great, a lot of the jokes are subtle (which I love in movies and TV Shows) and the subject matter is something I'm a fan of myself, although I don't believe that is clouding my judgment at all. I recently saw another movie called Ping Pong, which was also a comedy, but it was Japanese, and even though I love ping pong and a lot of Japanese humor, I didn't think it was all that great.

Also, Dan Fogler, an actor I've never seen before was the main character, and made an amazingly convincing character.

This is possibly the most underrated movie I've ever seen, and it makes me sad. Not many movies make me laugh out loud when I'm perfectly alone.

I've been working on an archive for months now, and there were really only 3 absolutely necessary programs to decode the archive (1), make charts to my own songs (2), load them back into the archive (1 again), and burn them to a disk (3). Go to ScoreHero and look for Guitar Hero Explorer (a.k.a. ghex) and/or Guitar Wizard (They have their good and bad sides, so I use both), Feedback chart editor, and whatever CD/DVD burning software they recommend.

Now that I think of it, chart editing is really tedious. I guess I just got used to it.

It's pretty funny (I saw it stoned so I'm not sure my opinion counts). It takes its self seriously the whole time, which makes it funny.

Being stoned doesn't usually completely skew your thoughts. Movies like this need to take themselves seriously. I mean, Blades of Glory did that, and turned out amazing. It looked lame when I first saw the previews, but it turned out awesome.

The people who didn't think it was funny are probably the one's who don't consider table tennis a sport, which is mean :|

Also, I was perfectly sober when I watched it, and I still thought it was great. I really liked Blades of Glory, too. Grandma's Boy is another of my favorites.

Sounds like kind of a lot of trouble, but I bet it kicks serious ass once you get it working. Are there any limitations on how long of a song you can do or how many notes are in it? And I assume you can't keysound them, right?

As far as I know, the only limit is that the entire archive needs to be under 4.4 GiB, and it's just under 3 at first IIRC. You can't add or remove songs, you have to replace them. You can't reproduce the effect used in the actual songs, which isn't actually keysounding. The songs are in .vgs format, divided into Guitar, Bass, and Band layers and having certain layers play as long as notes are being hit.
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, The Second Coming
Post by: Ulti on January 07, 2008, 07:52:44 PM
Oh, alright. Well, it's still a similar thing. Why can't you replicate it, is it just too complicated, or does it just not work?
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, The Second Coming
Post by: annon on January 07, 2008, 08:55:02 PM
Well, if you had separate tracks, you could build your own layered .VGS using the archive editors, but odds are you won't. If you've seen some of the videos on YouTube, you'll see it isn't significant, although it would be ideal.

I've used it for a bunch of things.  It's good because of how amazingly flexible it is and how easy it is to do gimmicks with it but it's bad because it pushes down BPM changes on every single measure.

It's nice for creating skeleton files.  If I do use it for a chart, I'll use it for one chart (usually the expert, since the waveform view is very helpful) then save it to SM and normalize the BPMs so the file doesn't look so messy.

Yeah.

Ulti: If you had the master instrument tracks from the song (each individual instrument completely separated from the others) you could reproduce the effect, so if you made a recording of a song of your own band, you could in theory do that (if you had a multi-track recording session). However, it's a hell of a lot more difficult than simply taking an MP3 and turning it's volume down when you miss a note.

Well, it could only be done with local bands and shit, unless you could manage to talk to the band and get permission to use their master tracks, which is not bloody likely, but still possible.

Post by: Bobbias on January 08, 2008, 03:51:21 PM
Not going to work well. Best they can do is cut out selected frequencies and split them into separate files, and that won't work well, because then you'll hear most of the guitar go out, bit bits and pieces on the low and high end go down. Some of the bass will probably be contained, unless they select whatever's totally above the bass's range, which means that they'll lose a lot of low end guitar. Same things goes for the bass, they'll be cutting into both the guitar, and VERY HEAVILY into the drums.
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, The Second Coming
Post by: Eggman on January 08, 2008, 04:24:39 PM
This is actually exactly why Rock Band features covers for some songs and masters for others. Some bands simply never cut their songs into separate parts with drums and whatnot (Iron Maiden) and so Guitar Hero can use the Master version since it just needs the main guitar, which does have its own track and Rock Band needs a cover because it needs separate tracks for drums, guitar, bass and vocals, which doesn't exist.

Doesn't matter anyway as the covers all sound good.
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, The Second Coming
Post by: Bobbias on January 08, 2008, 05:09:21 PM
There's that, and the fact that they probably couldn't get the rights to all the songs, so that would also affect what songs they had to cover.

I hope you mean Rock bands covers and not guitar hero 2s covers. I wanted to die after I heard the cover singer for lamb of god in GH2.

Really? I don't listen to Lamb of God or anything, but I didn't think the cover was terrible. The song was fairly fun to play, in any case. I'm pretty sure the Iron Maiden cover on the 360 version is basically the worst thing ever.

Either way, I felt like I was walking on air for quite some time after, lol.

Yeah, I was the same exact way. I was completely euphoric for like a half hour after my first kiss with my first "real" girlfriend. That was something I'll never ever forget.

Also, sup guys. I've kinda been ridiculously busy since the beginning of the weekend. I've had work every day, band practice yesterday and I've spent every ounce of my free time with my girlfriend (who is now doing better than ever, god I love my life). Tomorrow is band practice after school until 5:15, and work from 6 to 9:30. Woo. I'll have barely enough time to get home, change, drop my girlfriend off and get to work! Yay!

I couldn't stand the Heart-Shaped Box cover.  Two reasons: (1) they subtly changed some parts of the song, making it sound worse and throwing off Nirvana fans (such as myself) and (2) the singer tries to sound like Kurt Cobain, fails miserably, and winds up simply sounding bad.

Also also, spec, where in Tampa you at?

I DON'T KNOW ;_;

About ten minutes from Nielsen's Oldsmar campus, at the Mainsail hotel.

Also, I got my work laptop today! :D  It's a Dell Latitude D610 with a Pentium M 1.86GHz processor, 512MB of RAM, 60GB hard drive, 15.4" screen (1024x768...eww), and a 64MB RADEON X300 (same as my personal laptop, sadly).  Not a total screamer (mainly because of the RAM) but, really, it's a work machine, so it doesn't matter much.

I found out that Microsoft Exchange is a really fucking sweet server solution when it comes to e-mail and stuff.  If I want to e-mail anyone in the company all I have to do is search for their name on the server's contact list.  Very slick.  After I get out of class I'm going to receive a fancy new Blackberry (and my company car, I guess).  I can't wait.

Only problem with the whole school thing is that my classes start at 5pm and end at 2am.  Not a big deal, but it does kind of limit what I can do in the daytime.  It's been interesting so far, I'd say.

In rainbows is awesome, go listen to more radiohead, some of their other stuff is mindblowing, even compared to that CD. That one is a lot more mellow and such than some of their stuff, but for any established fan, it's a great addition to their collection, and definitely worth paying for.

That song frustrates me SO much. I've never seen myself get so angry at a game ever before in my life.
I have an old fridge in my basement thats not being used anymore, and is covered in dents from me flipping out, punching, kicking, and basically beating the shit out of the fridge. I've never lost my temper when playing a game, but for some reason with that song, I just LOSE IT and go absolutely crazy.

I've beaten 10 or so songs on Medium (the hardest difficulty I can feasibly do) on Career mode so far, really enjoying a lot of the charts and songs themselves. From what I hear, the later part of Career mode has better songs, can't wait for those.

Hay guyz, I got GH3 yesterday. Played it with my friend last night, and with my girlfriend earlier today. My girlfriend is a GOD(ess) at Guitar Hero. I've beaten 10 or so songs on Medium (the hardest difficulty I can feasibly do) on Career mode so far, really enjoying a lot of the charts and songs themselves. From what I hear, the later part of Career mode has better songs, can't wait for those.

Also, I kicked ass at work today, I got the most accepts out of anyone in my room today. Everyone congratulated me and stuff, it was neat.

Yep, the latter part does indeed have better songs. That's true for pretty much every GH game, unfortunately, almost all of the intro songs suck, but musically, ands chart wise.

i open up a pack of fruit gushers- fruit snacks with juice-stuff inside, you know- and it's supposed to be "tropical flavors," aka red, orange, blue, and green (and no, there's no way to describe the flavor beyond the color). all i get, though, is orange and blue.

You could always partition off a small space for installing XP, and then set up some samba shares to access all the files in your linux environment, and only boot into XP when you need to run something that won't run with WINE.

college prep = regular
honors = better than college prep
gifted = were in the gifted program in middle school (i think maybe if you're REALLY good you can get recommended into gifted from regular but i'm not 100% on that)
ap track = not college credit, going towards ap courses next year (i think language arts is the only class that does this)
ap = college credit, hard as balls

The funniest thing EVER happened at work today. I was on a call with an elderly lady, and I read her the media question (we have to make sure nobody in their household is employed in the media industry, so they won't crazily bias the survey). After I asked her, she told me she worked for a local radio station, which meant I couldn't continue on with the call. I went to the screen with the text you're supposed to read in the event that happens, but instead of reading it, I tried to make up something better to say. This is what I said. And god knows why I said it.

"We are sorry to inform you that since someone in your household is in the media industry, we must destroy this call." And then I just kind of thought about what the hell I just said, while she paused a few seconds and then hung up.

Needless to say, the people on either side of me heard that and gave me a funny look, and then started laughing. I literally couldn't stop laughing for like 5 minutes, it was awesome.

A girl at my school works for s telemarketer place. (i guess you can work at those places at 16) She says people say crazy stuff all the time. Like some really fat dude in the cubicle got all excited and said something like "do you like it when i rub my nipples?" really loud. it turns out he wasn't really on the phone with a customer and it was a joke, but it was funny as hell, especially since the girl did the motion he did and rubbed her own nipples.

So I finally decided to start doing some additional Firefox customization (i.e. killing the menu bar, putting the menu functions I actually need -- add-ons screen and options menu mainly -- into a small icon, dumping my bookmark toolbar icons on my navigation bar, etc).  Wow, what a difference.

I'm also messing with this split window extension.  Pretty handy.

I've heard of firefox breaking bookmarks before. In fact, Ive experienced it a long time ago, I think you should go check out bugzilla and see if there's a fix for it, or learn a bit more about it. My Bookmarks file is 74k right now, lol. How on earth did you get 767k of bookmarks? Did you bookmark every page you've ever been on?

Ehh? What's this all about?

I don't remember exactly what it's called, but if you search for "split browsing" on addons.mozilla.com you should be able to find it.  It's kinda cool.

I've heard of firefox breaking bookmarks before. In fact, Ive experienced it a long time ago

The only time I had a problem was when I bookmarked an HTML file on a network share (to be more specific, I linked my laptop to the bookmarks.htm file on my desktop system).  For reasons unknown to me, it attempted to read that file every time the browser opened (for a favicon, maybe?) and if my system were off (RARE) or I were on a different network (common, since I was going to college at the time) it would literally take Firefox two minutes to start up because it waited until it timed out.

Very weird behavior.

How on earth did you get 767k of bookmarks? Did you bookmark every page you've ever been on?

The one on my laptop has a 188KB bookmark file and I don't have too much stuff in here.  My desktop system has...400KB of bookmarks?  Something around there, anyway.

Post by: Bobbias on January 18, 2008, 04:19:05 AM
I checked out the split browsing.. That's awesome, I could probably use FF across both monitors at once now. That guy also has a whole crapload of addons he made. I like his XHTML Ruby support addon, that's something that doesn't get enough attention (Furiugana (to the japanese, anyway), to anyone who doesn't know what Ruby is.)
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, The Second Coming
Post by: Spectere on January 18, 2008, 04:39:16 AM
Yeah, I haven't checked out his other add-ons yet.  I'm just going to run with what I have so far to see how it works for me.

It's really weird, I never noticed how much room a standard set of toolbars and menus take up.  Here's what I have it down to right now:

(http://files.spectere.net/pictures/firefox/cleanliness.png)

It went from lawd know how many pixels to a mere 82, including the title bar.  Even on a screen with 1200 vertical pixels that made a noticeable difference, and by that I mean that I don't really even notice the bars up there anymore.

I'm currently using the Kempelton theme, which seems to go pretty nicely with the XP Media Center/Energy Blue look.

Also, nice user group, Bobbias. ;)

Lol, nice.

There's one problem with the split window thing. They scroll together. I don't like that, because I like flexibility. I'd like the option to turn that off and on, because you don't keep all your pages scrolled to the same location on every page right?
anyway, I'll definitely keep it on for a while, and see how things work out. It's not bad for splitting across both monitors in 1 huge window though.
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, The Second Coming
Post by: Spectere on January 18, 2008, 07:38:39 AM
They don't scroll together at all over here...

Try bringing down the split menu and turn off the "synchronize scrolling" option.  It doesn't seem to do anything on mine...might be the theme that I'm using (though it seems to me like it's just a graphics swap...who knows).
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, The Second Coming
Post by: Bobbias on January 18, 2008, 08:27:32 AM
I noticed after using it a second time it didn't. It was odd, because when I first used it, when I'd use my scroll wheel to scroll, both of them would scroll, but now they're independent, and I didn't do anything, lol.

I may be posting videos of myself and some friends playing Rock Band in a week or two. Trying to figure out a good setlist. I'm thinking:

Red Hot Chili Peppers - Dani California
Wolfmother - Joker and the Thief
Stone Temple Pilots - Interstate Love Song
The Monkees - Last Train to Clarksville
Radiohead - Creep (or My Iron Lung either one)
Oasis - Wonderwall

I'll probably be on vocals with my friends Matt and Adrian switching between drums and guitar since they're both about equally as good but should never be allowed to sing. Maybe do The Electric Version by New Pornographers since I love singing it. When You Were Young by the Killers would be good too.

Hm.

Also, the free XBL Arcade game that people get for all the outages it's had for the last month or whatever is Undertow. You'll be able to get it for free from the 23rd-25th I believe. People who already bought it can call Microsoft Support during those days to get your points back.

Party Games, yes, real game worth playing by yourself, probably not... Actually, I highly doubt it's worth the money for playing it as a real game... Might be fun drunk or stoned, but that's probably it.

It's good to see that most US music game players are still in their infancy. Whether or not something is difficult is irrelevant. If it's fun it's fun.

I get along just fine playing alone because I enjoy playing, not because I need some special score to go to. That ridulously competitive attitude is what completely ruins gaming.

Also, playing Expert guitar while singing is not easy.

Man that is so pringles.
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, The Second Coming
Post by: Bobbias on January 19, 2008, 12:05:31 AM
Well, I enjoy stepmania and all the other games by seeing if I can do better than my last score. It's not competitive with other people, but with myself. I'm always looking to get better, and I enjoy seeing myself get better.

That's just how I am, and why I can't stand easy stuff. It's well, boring, if a song isn't enough of a challenge for me to have trouble doing well, then it's not fun for me.

Yeah, I think the guitar tracks are easy, but the drum parts definately aren't. Fleshy, unless you play drums for real, good luck. Being a music gamer myself, I figured "yeah, I can deal with 5 notes at a time, whatever." and jumped straight into hard. I failed so fast it wasn't even funny.

But Rock Band definately isn't a fun game to play by yourself. Unless you have three or four people to play with on a regular basis, I wouldn't recommend getting it, but if you do, it's impossibly awesome. I definately agree with Eggman, just because a game is easy doesn't mean it sucks. Look at Audiosurf, I picked up playing Ninja Mono in approximately 30 seconds, and proceeded to start setting high scores on things. Doesn't stop it from being one of the funnest games I've played in recent memory.

Heh, my car's battery died tonight. Me and my girlfriend decided to park in a parking lot for a few hours and just "listen to music". Needless to say, I left the AC on and my zune playing (although it was barely audible) and when I tried to turn my car on at like 10:30, it was shafted. I felt goofy calling her parents to ask them for a jump (in the middle of a dark parking lot), but we gave them the excuse that we were listening to music and it somehow worked.

Regardless, I had a great night. And tomorrow I get to learn how to teach people English at my library. Woo, volunteering!

Part of audiosurf is that it's different, it's totally new, and you can use any song on your computer.

While I do play the occasional easy song in stepmania or O2Jam just because they're fun, most of them aren't fun for me because I don't like the song, or it's just too easy, and being easy just doesn't bring me any enjoyment. I mean, when I play o2jam, I play anything between about a 15 or 16 to 33's or so. That's a lot of music, and some of the 16s are pretty easy, but if I play it and it's easy, it's because it's good, and it's actually fun. I don't have as much fun with something like GH because I'm not at the same sort of skill level.

Plus, I find I get bored of games that are so limited with the number of songs available. I love playing stepmania, and O2Jam because both of them have 600+ songs available for me to play.

Nice work on the FF customization. About the only thing I really want is a "save state" thing where I can just take a snapshot of the state it's in and come back to that later, like a bookmark.

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/4199 (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/4199)

Opera does that : )

So does Firefox...

It'll do it without an extension, even, but you can't do it selectively that way.

my zune

Imma have to take a look at it, sire.  I've been looking for a good portable music player and I heard that they made the Zunes pretty nice after the last update was released.
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, The Second Coming
Post by: Bobbias on January 19, 2008, 09:30:16 AM
I was thinking more along the lines of being able to save things without using FF's default mechanism, if I wanted to do that, I'd just end task it, which usually does the trick.

I'm talking about saving them in their own savestate, like when you're playing an emulator, and you use the savestate feature. You usually have slots in which you can save your state, and load from each one at a different state. That's what I'm talking about.

1 shot raspberry twist smirnoff to start off [my stomach was rumbling, so I knew it would hit me quicker]

That's why they're called THEME parks silly. If it had no theme it would be called an amusement park. It's not gimmicky at all. It's got good rides and that's all that matters. Sheikra and Montu being themed makes them no less awesome than they already are.

And as I say in the funny convos thread, water parks are fun but the fun factor wears off pretty fast. Definitely not an all day event but good for a couple hours with a group of friends.

I'm probably just really biased against Busch Gardens cause I don't like roller coasters, and that's, like, all there is to do there  :P

Also, I had a doctor's appointment this morning. He basically told me that I fixed all my problems by losing 15 pounds over the summer/end of last year and that I'm at a perfect weight/cholesterol levels. Woo. He also told me that I need to police my parents, because they both eat too much, but especially my dad, because he's at a dangerous weight and at this rate will probably have a massive heart attack =/

Anyway I took a nice 3-hour nap, got work in 2 hours. Gonna get in some GH3 time now. I called in yesterday for a "family emergency", hopefully they won't yell at me. We were having a party here and I really didn't feel like going, but shh, don't tell them that :x

I'm one of those "skinny fat people". I've got a bit of a gut, and practically no muscle to speak of, but I'm not fat at all. It's awkward, because I don't want to gain weight only to have my gut get that much bigger, lol.

Hmm, never got one of those before. I've gotten HIGH voltage, low amperage DC shocks (Tesla Coil, through the entire Physics class, who were holding hands, and (relatively) low voltage higher amperage AC shocks from a house circuit (THAT was NOT pleasant).

I've also accidentally touched the hot metal part (not the tip, but the shaft of the iron) on a soldering iron, by accident. That hurt like a bitch.
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, The Second Coming
Post by: Spectere on January 23, 2008, 05:37:28 AM
Low amperage, low voltage shocks (I think it was low voltage...not sure what its peak was, but when I measured it, after getting shocked mind you, it it was in the 200s and discharging) are strange in that you don't feel them much at all.  Pretty much all I remember was feeling my arm spasm very slightly (glad it wasn't too bad, since I was holding a hot soldering iron at the time) -- almost like it was vibrating -- then backing away in complete surprise and saying "what the hell just happened?"  It didn't hurt at all for the first few minutes.  After that I started getting just simple cramps in my upper arm and shoulder, and my arm was shaky enough that I had to stop what I was doing (desoldering wires) for a few minutes.  I felt kind of weird for...two hours, maybe?  I feel perfectly fine now, aside from minor cramps.

Getting splashed with solder is nothing like getting burned by the iron, though.  I ended up getting a quick burn with a soldering iron and, from the look of it, it was pretty much a second degree burn from less than a second of exposure.  And I disagree; it doesn't hurt like a bitch...it hurts like fuck.

Solder cools pretty quickly when it's not under the iron.  If you get hit by a tiny droplet you're going to feel a minor sting, but it won't even leave a mark...it'll just make you yip a bit.  I don't know about a larger blob of it.  To be perfectly frank, I don't want a raindrop of molten solder hitting me.
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, The Second Coming
Post by: Bobbias on January 23, 2008, 06:23:57 AM
Haha, yes, it does hurt like fuck.

In less than a second of exposure, it was enough to make the skin on my finger tip start to blister. It was a small blister, and disappeared within a couple minutes, but after about 2 seconds you could see that the upper layer of skin had separated and become white, which is the indication of the beginning of a blister (Not the first time I've been blistered by burns)

Tesla coil shocks are much the same as what you described. There was actually less vibration and more of a tingle in my case, but otherwise it's pretty much the same. Of course, it didn't cause any muscle pain or anything.

However, AC house current shocks are a different beast entirely. I could feel my arm pulsing with the current, and my hand was stuck clenching the side of the socket. I was crouched down, so on instinct, I fell backwards and my hand came off the socket, but it scared the crap out of me, because I wasn't expecting it. The first time I did that it was my own fault for not being careful (We were painting, a socket was sticking out of the wall, and I was paining near it, and wanted to move it, but I just happened to grab the screws on either side), but the second time wasn't (We were working in the basement of the place we were fixing up, the power had been off there earlier, and the lights were all off, I was fixing some of the wall socket wiring and stuff, and grabbed one, only to find out someone had turned the fucking power on.)

They are scary shit, because you know exactly what's happening right away. It's not something that ou can kinda go "hmm, what's this?" It's more like "Oh fuck, I'm being electrocuted!"

You and your silly electronics soldering. I've been hit by splashes of solder coming off of copper pipe that I'm soldering with an acetylene torch. I've also been hit (luckily through the jeans) with silver-phosphorus solder at ~1100 degrees while brazing a pipe. Boy, that felt good.

Lame. Maybe you should see what sort of pictures you can make using the urban environment. Maybe try to make images that show the contrast between the urban and natural landscape...

(If I had a camera, I'd probably be constantly trying to think of stuff like that so I could use the local scenery, which tends to be kinda boring to me.)

There's a difference between having a contrast between an urban environment and natural landscape and a canned landscape and a parking lot with a few buildings scattered around.  There's nothing really "urban" about this place, it all just looks like it might as well just be artificial scenery.  I felt like I was taking pictures for a brochure; hence the reason for my griping.

Give me a park.  Give me a city.  Hell, give me downtown Youngstown.  The photographic value of this place can be basically summed up by looking at its advertisements.

Take the picture, just take random photos and look at them to see if there's any potential.  Scouting for locations is one of the more tedious parts of photography (I dont take photos to find something, I Just visit the same place like 10 times until I find something good).

Expansive photos are really hard to photograph. From what you described, you were probably trying to photograph the pond using 18mm to try and get everything in, but as you continue to photograph, you start to realize that you really need to focus on one thing at time.

I got fired from Borders for cheating their rewards program to keep my percentage up. It never gave money or credit to anyone though so it's not a theft issue at least. They shouldn't fight my application for unemployment then.

It's annoying but I figured they wanted to get rid of me anyway since I was being paid more than everyone else and was going to be getting another raise in April.

The registers have a Borders Rewards look up key. If someone didn't have it, I'd quick hit it and type in a random phone number and just hit enter so it would always be some random person. Apparently I used the phone number 787-8787 too many times lol

My problem now is that I don't have my own car; it's shared four ways.  This'll be a lot easier to do when I get back to Ohio, Maryland, or wherever the hell I'm going to wind up.  I'm pretty much stuck here, unfortunately.

Expansive photos are really hard to photograph. From what you described, you were probably trying to photograph the pond using 18mm to try and get everything in, but as you continue to photograph, you start to realize that you really need to focus on one thing at time.

I was at 55mm, trying to focus on a fountain near the end of it, actually.  The parking lot kind of cheapened it, really.  If the other side of the pond is hotel property I'll probably try to walk whenever I get a chance since the fountain is pretty close to that end.  We'll see how it goes.  Regardless, there are plenty of trails that I want to cover when I get back to Struthers, either when I get back (if the weather is fair) or in the spring/summer if I'm there for those seasons.

If you aren't straining for space, don't bother adding hard drives unless you plan to set up a RAID 1 array or something.  No sense spending money if you're not going to use the space.

If you go through hard drive space like candy and/or do things involving large files or large collections (music ripping, picture albums, etc), hell yes, get another drive.

I love Visual Studio.  I have yet to use an IDE that compares to it in terms of environment flexibility, ease of debugging, and tool/language integration.

You can also use gcc in Windows, y'know.  Look up MSYS/MinGW and Cygwin.

Also, if you've never used Borland C++Builder, you haven't used a bad IDE.  I get chills just thinking about it.

And stunt runs are impossible unless you get the one exact line across the city and not screw it up at all.

I'm sure Visual Studio is awesome, if you actually have sort of an idea what you're doing. I personally have not a freaking clue how to use 95% of the features there, and gcc is entirely sufficient. Plus, I am taking a class in Linux as well, so having Ubuntu installed gives me something to fiddle around with outside of the computer labs.

If you're just doing quick, single-file projects, Visual Studio is absolute overkill.  That would be sort of like using AutoCad to draw a square.

I would probably look into MSYS/MinGW or Cygwin, just in case you need to do some quick work while you're still booted into Windows.  It would also enable you to easily cross-compile, building a Win32 EXE of your program with zero effort.

From the little coding I've done (the most complicated project I've ever made in C++ was a Windows Forms program that read txt files sooo), Visual Studio is excellent. It has some quirks though, so you might have to change some stuff around if you're doing examples from a general C++ book or something.

Okay, so I ended up doing the actual project in a computer lab, where ubuntu wasn't installed, and was forced to use visual studio, and I take back my initial statements of how terrible it is, to some extent. I still think it's horrible overkill for what we're doing in the class, but I really liked the ability to compile and run the program about 300 times just on the fly, and putting in breaks to check stuff was really convenient.

Yeah. I've used various versions of Visual Studio over the years and have to say it's probably the best IDE I've ever used. If there is one thing I would say Microsoft did properly, it's that. It's kinda overkill, but honestly, I'd rather use that then have to make do with something like notepad and a command line compiler...

I highly suggest any further uploads are either upped someplace else, or, if you prefer rapidshare for some reason, use massmirror.com, since it uploads to multiple sites at once. I hate rapidshare with a passion. They limit you WAY too much, you rarely get anything above 150 kb/s, etc.

Use drop.io

It is very nice. Lots of features, no ads or sign up.

DMC4 gets really hard around stage 8-11, then gets easier, and then gets really hard at 19. Mostly due to you having to fight all of the bosses again.

does drop.io have any download limits? does it get good speed (like, 300 kb/s)?

I prefer megaupload whenever possible, but even they have a limit. However, I can get 300 kb/s from them, and it's not NEARLY as limited as rapidshit.

massmirror and other similar services are great because they send to more than 1, so you don't overload 1 of them, if it's taken down for infringing on 1 of them, it's still got mirrors, and places like megaupload block some entire countries at times, so it'd still be available on a different server for those people.

massmirror and other similar services are great because they send to more than 1, so you don't overload 1 of them, if it's taken down for infringing on 1 of them, it's still got mirrors, and places like megaupload block some entire countries at times, so it'd still be available on a different server for those people.

It's 100 megs for most people. I have a premium version that allows 1 gig of space though.

Download speeds hit 700k/sec off it for me. No one uses it so don't spread it around.

Trust me, it's better than megaupload by a loooooot.

You can also tell it how long you want it to last, allow others to access and add/delete content, add notes and stream the content directly from it. It's supposed to be used by companies for teams of employees to easily share data.

I just ordered a set of earbuds from Newegg the other day: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16826106030 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16826106030).  They arrived today and I've been using them for a few hours.

I've never been a fan of earbuds because most of the ones I've used have just sucked but since I'm in Florida and have to keep my baggage to a minimum (for the trip inside of the giant metal bird -- destination Ohio -- later this month) I've decided to deal with them.  I bought a set of Coby (lol) headphones for $2 at Atlanta International.  To put it bluntly, I got what I paid for.  They suck.  Audio is muffled, bass response is nonexistent, and they distort at the slightest provocation.

These Sennheiser ones, however, have been quite awesome.  While they don't compare to my good ol' Skullcrushers (nor would I expect them to) they deliver very clear audio and surprisingly solid bass.  If you want a decent set of earbuds, I definitely recommend them.

Speaking of Newegg, I also ordered something else from them.  Behold:

(http://files.spectere.net/pictures/screenshots/2gb-laptop.png)

2GB.  Finally.  Long overdue, I'd say, given how much I've used this laptop these last three months (last time I even touched my tower was in November...eek).  I haven't done anything that would really use that much memory yet aside from an extended visit to memtest86+-land, but I'm sure I will.  Regardless, it was good simply so that I could upgrade my work laptop from 512MB to 1GB.  Now that made a huge difference.  It literally cut the startup time from something like two minutes down to thirty seconds.  Awesome.

Finally...

Fuck yeah, Fear Factory.

Speaking of them, I have to say, H-K (Hunter-Killer), the song that T-1000 is a remix of, kicks the shit out of T-1000.  <3 Demanufacture.

I'm not much of a fan of ear buds either, most of the ones I've used don't fit my ears properly. One ear is larger than the other,, so if they fit the larger one, it's painful in my other, and if it fits the smaller one, it barely stays in my other ear. Plus, headphones/earbuds never last in this house. The last couple ones I've had were broken by my brother, too.. I've been keeping decent care of the stuff I gt, but he manages to break them in a week or 2 after he starts using them.

I had a fucking $50 headset that worked well for about 6 weeks, maybe, maybe a bit longer, but after that, my brother managed to fuck it up so that I had to prop the cable up with the mic, and then the mic on it died, and then the whole thing died.

Arg.

Anyway, I hope the sens work out for you.

They've been working out pretty well.  They're about as comfortable as my phone headset (which are some of the most comfortable buds I've used...stereo, too, shame my phone isn't exactly the loudest music player in existence).  I've pretty much had them in for six hours straight -- plugged into my DS, PSP, and laptop -- and listening to a lot of audio with no issues.  The breakaway connector requires a bit more force to sever than I'd like, but I don't typically have a problem with snags (I usually run headphone cords down my shirt when I'm doing anything but sitting in one location).

The breakaway connector is going to be nice when I'm at work/school.  If I ever have to leave my station I can unplug from the breakaway connector and not have to worry about music blaring out of my laptop's speakers (since it cuts off the internals when there is conductance in the port itself, like everything else) and I won't have to take the buds out of my ears, put them in, etc etc.  Another nice thing about the lanyard design that it uses is that I won't have to worry about the buds getting ripped out of my ears if a snag should occur.  The force would go around the back of my neck instead.  Needless to say, that is definitely preferable to getting my ears ripped off.

Durability isn't much of an issue with me because I'm borderline paranoid about my things.  I don't have to worry about anyone breaking it, either; no siblings and all that to worry about.

How good are the upper level sony's? Most sony's I've had were cheap, except 1 pair. That was a $40 set that were designed differently, with a neck band and something to wrap around your ear, with the "bud" facing directly into your ear on an angle, rather than straight in. (can't figure out what they were called or anything, this is all from memory). They sounded pretty good, (essentially like a better version of all the cheap headphones I've had), but they were definitely better than regular headphones, since they didn't have the usual "over the head" design (my head's too small for those things). They were about the best headphones I've had, but they could have had much better quality sound.

I've been thinking of either getting a decent pair of Sens, or possibly some Grado's.

Earbuds are really bad for you ears, so I try not to use them, ever.  I use something like this:

Well, as bad as it is, I still listen to stuff really loud at times. Not so much any more, considering my hearing is so damaged that I can't hear above 12.5 khz or so. My hearing loss is noticeable in normal life at times now. If my mom has the TV down so my dad can sleep, and not hear it, it is barely audible for me. I either have to strain to hear it, or turn on the closed captioning :/

I'm still as sensitive as I was before, able to pick out detailed sounds and such, but I need things a bit louder, that's all.

They're no worse than any other headphone, you just have to be more careful not to blast them.

You can just as easily damage your ears with a car stereo system.

Nice, nice.

I'm not sure exactly what model speakers I have; my car's kinda far away from me right now, haha.  When you reduce the bass you can pretty much crank the system as high as it'll go (not that I recommend it, heh) but at higher levels the bass tends to distort a bit so I generally keep it a little lower than I'd like to.

Those speakers do give great sound on things with a lot of bass and little mid-range, though, like rap and hip-hop.  I think I can see why so many people listen to it -- it's not hard to put together a system that can handle it well.

Anyone ever sit beside a 12" alpine sub when it's blasting? I have. Now that is an experience. The sub took up the driver side and middle seat in the back of the car (it was a temporary thing). But man, sitting beside one of those at full blast is one hell of an experience.

In other news, having hearing loss can be a bit of a problem every now and again, but not as much as some people might think... (well, mine's not all that bad anyway, it's more frequency loss than a uniform drop in perceived sound level.)

Also, ear buds pump out the exact same volume that headphones or a car stereo would, generally. They adjust the output to deal with the difference in sound amplification that your causes, as well as for the fact that they are much closer to the ear drum.

All in all, unless you consistently put your music above about 80 db, you're gonna be fine, but if you listen to 80+ db music for any length of time, you're likely to lose your hearing over time.

Damn. O.o

My Satty only had one blown speaker, on the rear driver side, I believe.  It was all connected to a tape deck that worked about 90% of the time (and, as I started to use it, it started playing tapes faster...I hate when they do that).

The first thing to go were the old speakers.  Just swapping those out worked wonders with the stock deck because in 1995 car manufacturers didn't seem to be too concerned with audio quality.  After I installed my Pioneer deck...mmmMMMmmmMMMMmmMMMMM!!!  Orgasm.

Amperage wouldn't have necessarily made it more painful, it would have just made him deader. =(

I remember going to this dance in 8th grade. There were a bunch of disposable cameras there for people to use to take pictures. My own curiosity led me to taking one apart. I got shocked in the process, then I saw what shocked me. I charged the capacitor, broke it out of the camera, and went and shocked people. It didn't discharge fully the first time; it was good for about 10 shocks, each less intense than the last. Then, being the nice guy that I was, I showed someone how to do it. He showed a bunch of people how to do it. I have a few burn scars because of this.

Lol, nice one. Today's going to be a rather lackluster posting day for me, apparently.

In unrelated news, I'm going to be leaving soon to the place my dad's working for at the moment (well, he's working part time there, and part time at his own company, because the market is kinda slow, and he's having trouble getting work). I'm gonna be going around the machine shop checking things out, because I've never gotten a chance to see what all that stuff is really like in person, and it's good ot know what you're getting into when you go to college. If all goes well today, I'll have a better idea of what I'm going into, or alternately, I'll realize that that sort of job isn't for me, and have to figure out some other idea for college.

EDIT: I'm waitin for my dad to finish up, and I'm on one of the computers at the workplace right now. so far, I'm most interested in PLC programming. PLC programming involves a rather unique logic system using electrical circuits as switches and such. It's used to control many different types of systems. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Programmable_logic_controller

What I was introduced to uses Ladder Logic (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ladder_logic) based programming to control the system. The main difference between Ladder Logic and conventional programming is that Ladder Logic is essentially asynchronous. It is a system that is constantly polling itself for any changes and reacting accordingly. Ladder Logic is really complex, but I find that I actually like it. It's programming on a different level than what I'm used to, and I really like that style.

As far as getting into college for that goes, I think I'll likely need to take a corrospondance course and complete a grade 12 math, since I don't have 1 (you aren't required to do math in grade 12, only up to grade 11.) I'll also have to commute to school, since the course isn't available in midland. But I think this would be a great career to get into.

tl;dr: I liked it, PLCs are cool.

So I took my girlfriend to the beach, and had a picnic and stuff. It was all a total surprise to her, and she loved all of it and stuff. But she didn't do anything for me, or make me anything. I'm wondering if I should really care. Part of me wants her to have made me a card or something, at least so I can have something to remember this day with, but the rest of me feels like I did enough valentiny stuff for the both of us.

More like half a foot in some parts of our front yard (it's perfectly understandable that you wouldn't know the elevation at various levels of my yard ;)).  According to my dad, that actually wasn't too bad of a day.  He told me that one day they ended up getting some bad rain and it all froze after it hit the ground.  That's the kind of stuff that I don't like.

I guess the schools have been closed most of last week due to wind chill.  One time my mom told me that she had to take my car to work because the garage door was frozen shut. O.o

Meh, every time I thought I was about to get into it, the camera shook me loose. I really don't like how the last time you saw the other guy, he was trapped in power lines, he wouldn't kill a guy who was out to kill everyone capable of jumping but killed an Asian truck driver by leaving him in the path of a fucking tank, how much similar the girl was to Mary Jane, how he was somehow able to jump an entire apartment while being shocked and come out fine, but do it again underwater and go unconscious (which brings up another one, why didn't he just leave the apartment and just jump himself and his cliche girlfriend and leave Samuel L. Jackson guy to die?). I dunno, it seemed too thrown-together to me. I might check out the book, though, because the idea of jumping in this form is pretty cool.

Haha, my computer's like that. I leave it on for weeks at a time.

Yeah, mine too. And no, I didn't get VIP tickets. We just got practically the best seats in the house. There's ten of us, and we're arranged like so:

o o o o o o
_ o o o o _

... in the front two rows, and dead center. That's better than all of us being in the same row, or obviously in two different, weird places. My friend's dad is a badass. June 1st is going to be the best day of my life. 45 bucks is NOT a lot to see my favorite band in person, not anywhere near a lot. I'd pay like 200 or 300 to see them, christ.

Oh also, don't know if I told you, but TMBG is coming here, March 11. About to buy tickets for me and my best friend, paying for his ticket as an early birthday present. That should kick major ass as well.

Edit: Also, tried Rock Band for the first time today. Tried singing first, we did a song I didn't know (don't remember its name) and then one I did know, Black Hole Sun, and I actually did pretty well. Singing is really, really fun... a lot more fun than the drums (which I blew at) and the guitar and bass, which seem stupidly easy in this game compared to GH3.

I *love* doing drums in Rock Band.  I only played it once at Best Buy (sans foot pedal, naturally) and I enjoyed myself immensely.  I think I'm going to pick it up for 360 after I get back home; maybe I can convince my dad to play it with me. :)

Post by: Eggman on February 23, 2008, 01:01:45 AM
The guitar in Rock Band IS quite a bit easier than GH3 (well, Green Grass aside really and probably the upcoming thrash songs) but the charts actually make sense, unlike GH3's garbage. I swear, they totally gave up on even following the music in GH3. Chords where there shouldn't be chords, triples for no reason, following parts of songs they shouldn't, etc.

Rock Band's drums are very addictive but just watch out on the bass pedal. Try to play heel down and barely lift your foot and for the love of god, do not press too sharply. You WILL shatter that thing in half like I did. I actually just got a new bass pedal from them, which is odd because I was just supposed to get an empty box and then ship my old one back to them before they sent me a new one...so maybe they'll send me another one and I'll have two? That'd be nice. Of course, since my 360 red ringed, that doesn't really help me.

Singing in Rock Band is awesome because if you aren't horribly afraid of it, you're totally star of the party.

I'm lazy, so I'd likely be sitting down for the drums anyway.  I'm a light-footed player on DDR so I can't see myself being too aggressive with Rock Band.  I know I'd be able to get at least my youngest nephew to play.  If I could get my dad in, even better.  I kinda doubt I'd be able to find a singer, but oh well.

I had the most insane, surreal nightmare last night. There was a mini-apocalypse, and I took some kind of drug or something, and I was with a friend of mine at another friend of mine's house, trying to collect supplies and stuff, and somehow, I became trapped inside a giant bowl of tomato and cheddar soup. Like, I became part soup or something, and my soup mixed with the bowl's soup, and our soups were woven together and I couldn't get out. Somehow I split into 3, it was me, a female me, and another male me, and they were both evil. They kept pushing me around, and pushing soup and cheese on me, and laughing at me while I was freaking out.

I had a dream one time where me and my mom were in this big tower like saruman's from LOTR and we had to run down this spiral staircase fighting all this weird shit and every once in a while there would be a fuck-long hallway, way longer than the diameter of the tower with a bunch of doors and eventually we made it out and then i woke up. Weird part is, I've had the same dream twice, about 10 years apart ???

I also had a dream when I was really little that I was being kidnapped, but i was dreaming in a sepia color scheme so it was all brown like one of those old movies, and i was in the back of this car laying down so i couldn't see shit it was crazy as balls.

Yep! Getting it replaced is actually really easy and a lot like how Rock Band replacements are done. You just go to the xbox support page, enter the system's serial number, see if it's under warranty and if it is, click on what's wrong (it has RRoD) and request a box to ship it to them. I have no idea how long it'll take but I expect a month.

I do sit for Rock Band drums but some of those songs are very bass heavy and sometimes you lose yourself and don't remember to press lightly and then whoops. They aren't THAT fragile but it'll probably happen at some point.

Ah, okay.  That's good.

I hope mine waits until I get back to Maryland, that way I can at least use my friend's system, haha.  Of course, I'd rather it not happen at all, but that's about as likely as having a V4 PS2 with a working drive.

Odds are the floppy is set as present in the BIOS.

As for your keyboard not working, erm...what kind of keyboard is it?  If it's USB it *should* work.  If it's Bluetooth, you'll need to hunt down a USB or PS/2 keyboard.  If it's wired, try it on another system to make sure that it works.

Oh, don't worry, we've all been there. =(  Whichever engineer decided to make both PS/2 ports the same shape and pin-out should have their nuts ripped off.

Just as a general rule in the future, if you don't have any sort of color-coding (or, for that matter, a line of sight) the port closest to the board is always (at least it was on every single system I've ever used with PS/2 ports) the keyboard port.

I usually only remember my dreams if I actually get a decent sleep.

There was one strange exception.  I was asleep in my car between classes when I went to my previous university and I had an extremely vivid dream of a war-like scenario.  Picture an environment like, say, Gears of War.

I was only asleep for about an hour yet it was probably the most real dream I've ever had.  It was raining and I could clearly feel the cold rain on my face.  I ended up getting hurt in the dream (shot in the leg, I do believe) and I actually had an odd, lingering pain in my leg after I woke up.

Also, spec, everything cool for hanging out tomorrow? I have Wind Ensemble at school until 4, and after that I can just drive straight to your place and steal you. I'll probably be bringing my girlfriend on the voyage, so you can meet her and stuff, she's pretty tight 8)

7 AM, that's it? I've been known to go to bed between 9 and 11 AM for days in a row. Hell, 5 AM is the time I've been most active on this website! (partly because spec and I tend to have large discussions at 5 AM when I'm getting ready to go to bed, and he's getting up.)

Yeah, everything should be coo~.  I won't be able to get back here too too late (10pm at the latest) due to me having to pack for my flight tomorrow (crikey) but that'll give us a fair amount of time.

(partly because spec and I tend to have large discussions at 5 AM when I'm getting ready to go to bed, and he's getting up.)

Heh, actually, up until this week I was just getting to bed around 7-8AM because I had the night classes.  Now I'm sleeping from around 7-8PM to 2-3AM because they switched my class to days. :P

Well, our conversations have been going on before you ever got flown down there, so that doesn't make much of a difference anyway, lol.

Oh, and update on my life: I'm now signed up to take the last math course I need to get into my course at Georgian College. Once I manage to finish this course (Which I joined partway in, but lucky me, the math I'm supposed to do is everything I did in my grade 11 course, but it counts as a grade 12 credit :P), I'll be able to take the course I want. Tomorrow, I'll likely be dropping my resume off at a place around town that seem to always be looking for someone (It's just warehouse stuff, but that's better than retail, as far as I'm concerned). So who knows, maybe in a couple weeks I'll be working, instead of spending all my time sitting around doing nothing.

lets see, i left spectere.net because i got fed up with the teen drama/random annoying shit in random chat, and i guess around the forum .  came back, requested spectere ban me from the random chat.  decided 90% of all posts are in this very thread, requested unban until i get pissy with the random chat section again, which then i will most likley request a new ban, but that shouldn't be for at least another 4 or so months.

but yea, i need a place to postwhore, and yell at people, and this is my place.

also, for things i was fed up with, don't read if you are the pissy type/can't handle honesty! 

-my threads gone offtopic, notably the diablo 2 thread turned into a thread about something else (yes i know i do occasionally contribute to knocking threads off topic)
-"baww my gf broke up with me" in this thread, its high school, that shit happens, your life has barely even started, there are more important things out there.
-drinking related stuff, im an alcohol bigot, no big surprise
-me over lurking, not a site related problem, more of a willpower related problem, a minor one at that.
-megahurtz in yo watermellon?  its more likley than you would think.
-and the kicker, I AM EASILY ANNOYED/PISSED OFF.  as much as drop a pin around me and ill rage. im a jackass also.


uhh, and i need a place to kill time yo.

and i guess i could sometimes say some odd things about my sexual deviancy to freak out people sometimes.  its always fun making myself appear as a freak!

PEANUT BUTTER

JELLY

RICK

ASTLEY

THE HAM STATION FIFTY

ohh, and yall know, i say nigger, A LOT.

like, i say nigger a MINIMUM of 25 a day, with highs of over several thousand times.  to me, it is a noun, and a verb, but not a racial slur.

this could mean problems when i go to a town with black people/get a black girlfriend.

shit son, getting with a black chick would be pretty bitchin, screw these generic white chicks.

or even better, half girl, half SPIDER, OHH YEAH>!  immagine what kinky situations you could get in with that web, uh huh son, i went there.

good fucking jesus playing killing floor with 5 people is fun

its like, awesome killing wave after wave of zombies with 5 people in a lan setting.

example, near the end of a later wave, everybody has low ammo, and 0 shotgun shells.  there are 10 or so fleshpounders out there, these enemies can nearly kill you in one hit, and they are slow.  shoot them enough with a weak weapon, and they get fast enough to outrun you, they take a lot of force to kill. 

keeps you on your toes, i can say this.

Like Evil Dead amount of zombies or a wussy George Romero amount? Or is the value controllable :o

let me try and explain this.

the amount of zombies is dependent on the amount of players in game.

say you are alone, first wave is around 25 zombies, if you have 5 people, that wave should be over 60.   and at wave 15, it is around 95 or so zombies.  that may not sound like much for a late wave, but the amount of fleshpounders they throw at you will make you go out of ammo quick if you aren't careful. (if you are out of ammo on the stronger weapons, and all you have is the 9mm handgun left...after 3 or so clips, the fleshpounder will get pissed and rape you)

1 fleshpounder = scarier than 20 or so regular/acid spitting zombies

I played through some of the last case in Phoenix Wright: Trials and Tribulations on the first plane ride, then tried to get some sleep on the second one.  I got...maybe 45 minutes, then I started playing PW:TnT again because I got stuck with an arm rest hogger/elbow bumper to my right and a "I'm going to slam the seat into your legs repeatedly" moron in front of me.

I was going to try to sign on when I was in Atlanta, but Atlanta International sucks and doesn't have free wi-fi (and I'm not going to pay $8 for the whole two hours that I'm going to be there).

but it is kind of lame that the best zerg player got taken out so quickley.  then again, protoss fans could say the same about bisu.  however, bisu wasn't the ONLY protoss player to make it to the quarterfinals.

one more thing to note.

stork lost 4 times in the entire tournament, 3 of those losses were to flash.  niggas got skillz.

Man, I need to get into competitive starcraft. I know nothing of anything near an advanced tactic. I've been wondering what the hell proxy gating is... I haven't been able to find anything clearly describing it.

I forget, can I still get online if I use a PERFECTLY LEGITIMATE CD key? I can't stand the computer's tactic of "rush ASAP". I simply cannot find a way to deal with it. Even the advanced players don't rush within like, the first 3 minutes. It's retarded, because while I'm trying to build my resource income, and I've made a couple units, they come in with just enough force to wipe out my defense, and proceed to rape my base. Even if I manage to beat them off, or they leave. I'm still screwed, because I have practically no resource income again, and I've got no defenses or anything. I hate it so much because it's just plain stupid. Plus, adapting to defend against early rushes will probably cause a problem later in the game when you need the extra resource income, and the expos. If you had to fortify each expo against a mad rush just as you establish it, you're never going to get anywhere. and once the opponant DOES strike, you won't have enough infrastructure to put up much of a defense.

Anyway, after watching that match Vlad, I've come to realize how much Goliaths rock. I never really knew how useful they were before, but grouped en masse with tanks and vultures, they kick serious ass. They RAPED those carriers with ease. Usually 3 or 4 carriers is a rather large problem, but he just ate those things for lunch.

proxy gating is when the protoss player builds a stargate outside of his own base (a proxy) so his zealots can get to the enemy base faster, this is a rush tactic.

I forget, can I still get online if I use a PERFECTLY LEGITIMATE CD key?

you know, starcraft is easy to find and dirt cheap.

Anyway, after watching that match Vlad, I've come to realize how much Goliaths rock.

I've never played Starcraft before, but watching that was neat. It looked pretty cool. It was like a futuristic Age of Empires. Also, why did they give the winner a big piece of cardboard and some flowers? What the hell? What a lame prize.

Also, I watched the Matrix for the first time in years today, and it made a lot more sense than it used to, especially considering I asked my girlfriend a lot of stuff about the movie cause it still didn't make much sense, rofl. Pretty tight movie though, I like it a lot more than I used to, now that I understand WHY it's so cool, past all the bullet dodging and showy effects.

Yeah, at the level they were playing at, there was almost definitely money involved. There used to be 2 TV channels in Korea dedicated to starcraft, 24/7, now there's only 1. Playing starcraft can make those guys good money, and even win them scholarships.

also, i found ALL of these links simply by a friend of mine linking me to one of gravis's videos.  clicked on his profile, checked his favorites...and went from there.  the kid is damn good at starcraft.  he even has a video of himself defeating nony (a very fucking good american player, ranked A or something on iccup, gravis being ranked B).

G4 actually tried to get commercial gaming going back in the day. Arena was pretty cool. Only problem was that it was always PC stuff only so I got bored seeing the same 3 or 4 shooters and Starcraft. Later they added in bonus rounds and stuff that had them playing a song in DDR or a match in Melee and they all just horribly sucked at them.

I think Major League Gaming has an agreement with someone now too. Probably SpikeTV. They hold a lot of huge gaming tournaments.

Less than a week until Brawl. That's what I'm excited about.

Jesus, you guys and your friends have missed out. The late 90's was a golden age for RTS games. Starcraft is a lot of fun. It's very technical, but still a LOT of fun. WC3 is also pretty fun, but I prefer custom maps in that one. I'm absolutely amazing on tower defense maps.
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, The Second Coming

wc3 is fun in the sense is its way easier to learn than starcraft is.  i mean, i was actually "decent" at wc3 with a 40 something % winrate on the battle.net.

Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, The Second Coming
Post by: vladgd on March 03, 2008, 10:38:34 PM
my honest opinion

flip a coin for it

they are both good games, starcraft is just arguably harder to get into.  its harder to pick up, and the campaign is harder. 

warcraft isn't too hard to get into, and the campaign actually teeters towards the easier end of the spectrum, save for a few missions.

but it mainly boils down to

-do you like a more macro oriented game where losing a few units isn't going to kill you

pick starcraft

-do you like a more micro oriented game, where every unit counts

pick warcraft

of course both games rely on both macro and micro, but generally starcraft is "HUEG ARMY vs HUEG ARMY" and warcraft is "SMALL SKIRMISHES"  not to mention, talking both games at pro level here(hell, maby even at novice level), warcraft requires less apm(actions per minute) to be good at.

We should have IP games and such, since I can't get onto battle.net...

Oh, and I'm getting better. I did a double proxy gate in Blue Storm and managed to rush a computer zerg before they had anything other than a Hatchery, lol. I just finished placing a Nexus at the expo (right beside my double proxy) just before the game ended, lol.

Oh, and I managed to get into a late game with me as Toss vs a comp Terran, but I couldn't manage to mount any successful attacks aside from the occasional Reaver Drop, because the computer seemed to be in love with ghosts. How the hell do you counter ghosts with the Toss? I really hate those guys. Lockdown and Cloaking together is a gigantic pain. On the bright side, the computer is a moron when it comes to positioning nuke strikes.
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, The Second Coming
Post by: vladgd on March 04, 2008, 04:57:03 AM
if it makes you feel better, just about NOBODY uses ghosts/battlecruisers/valkrys

Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, The Second Coming
Post by: Bobbias on March 04, 2008, 05:30:18 AM
Which were the 3 things most pissing me off in that game, not so much Battlecruisers, since my 3-4 carriers pwned them in firepower, but the ghosts and valkyries were a problem. Valks are pretty decent as AA, but the fact that they're only AA makes them useless in post games, but 1 valk could take out pretty much all the shields on one of my carriers before the carriers killed it :/

The computer does a lot of things most people don't. It likes to move units around in the area it controls in small groups or just single units. Unfortunately, when those are ghosts, and cal lockdown before you can kill it, a group of 12 dragoons can very quickly find itself reduced to half that, before even encountering one of the comp's expos.

I tried a non-rush game on BakemaGoji (or however it's spelled), and got beaten pretty bad by the Terran.  My early game has improved a lot, but my mid-game SUCKS. And my late game.. Well, I almost never get that far.

Man, I wish I'd kept my CD case safe... I hate having to pay more money just because I lost my CD key.

I should also get back into WC3. Maybe I'll be able to get better at that game. Unfortunately, I never got into playing normal games in SC or WC3 before. I always played custom maps/UMS games.

Pretty much all I play are RPGs.
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, The Second Coming
Post by: Bobbias on March 04, 2008, 06:21:13 AM
eww rpgs.

j/k

I play some RTS, some RPGs, some MMORPGs (I make a distinction, since they do have a rather large difference in gameplay), and very rarely, FPS. Most games like "The Sims" piss me off, and I find it very hard to find an MMORPG that's worth playing for more than about a week. One of the things that almost every MMORPG fails miserably on is the items. The thing that sets WoW and Diablo2 apart from other games in their genre(s) is that item wise, they are extremely flexible, and you can get quite a bit of help form your items. (Though I wish there were more sets in WoW :/)

I've kinda gotten into this weird phase where almost no game can actually feel worth playing for more than about a month. I just find every flaw and problem with the game and get to the point where I just don't get any satisfaction from playing it. Most MMORPGs have practically no social interaction, and no flexibility until your character is pretty much ready for end-game stuff, and are boring as FUCK to grind; most RTS games are very inflexible, and you get stuck doing the exact same thing every time because it's the only way to win; most RPGs don't give you enough control over your character, or don't have enough unique features that set them apart from all the others; and I suck at pretty much every FPS ever made.

/rant

Part of the reason I get pretty much every game PERFECTLY LEGITIMATELY is because I'm cheap, and don't want to pay more than about $10 for something that I'm going to get bored of in a month or so.

Warcraft 1 is the only RTS I've ever actually played and even back then, I thought it was really boring. Most people who play RTS don't understand a single thing about actual strategy and just follow guides that other people put out. There's almost zero room for any sort of bait and attack or any sort of cool ideas because the maps are so completely defined.

I do have to say though, that Shogun: Total War or whatever it was looked like it was close.


So, EA screwed up yet again with sending me Rock Band stuff. I requested a box to send in my guitar and instead of just sending me one box, they sent me two. So now I don't know if I'm supposed to just send in my guitar and keep the other box or send in the guitar and the empty box with a note saying they screwed up and sent me an extra box.

Aggh I want my 360 back.

there are quite a few different programs you can use for formatting, but the easiest way, if you're going to re-install windows, is stick in the windows CD and start installing, and when it says that there's already windows on that drive, tell it to format. (quick, since full formats are generally unnecessary, and take forever)

I played it once or twice and thought it was boring. I'm hardly competitive but still, the game is so slow paced and none of the minigaems are that fun.
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, The Second Coming
Post by: Eggman on March 06, 2008, 02:57:38 PM
I would beg to differ on a lot of them being fun. Which game did you play? It does really depend on which MP game you're playing.

Honestly, a lot of gamers just resign themselves beforehand like, "Oh I don't normally like minigames and stuff." and then they play it as *gasp* BIG SURPRISE, they say they don't like it.

If the game's slow-paced, turn the turn number down or tell the other people to hurry up with their moves. It's not like these things aren't controllable.

The other type of person that exists is the "jaded." They're more or less incapable of having fun with something they've deigned below them or they've already decided that something is garbage, even before going into it. It's painful. It's why games like Zack & Wiki or Okami or even God Hand don't get sales. Z&W has a weird title, a cute character set and it's on the Wii. But damn if it isn't a fantastic game that no one bought because they thought they were above what was presented to them.

Aggggh now I'm off on a giant tangent. I'm just easy to annoy with stuff like that.

I guess I fall mostly into the "jaded" group. Except that I play oldschol arcade game and such. I think my problem is with modern games that try to emulate older games and bring them into the new platform and stuff. I don't like the idea of taking a game and doing something else with it (3D megaman anyone?). I'm not a fan of minigames in some games, but I still play stuff that could easily be taken as a minigame in things (Python/Snake/Worm/Whatever, Pong, Kickle Cubicle is fun as hell, so is the old Bubble Bobble [not Bust a Move]) There's something about them that just bothers me. I've played 3 (and probably an earlier one as well), and we own one of them (probably 4, 5, or 6, We're too lazy to check which one it is) and I don't like it either. I actually, sorta liked 3. I wish they would have not made so damn many of them.


Either way, I'm gonna stop ranting now.

On an unrelated sidenote, my jaw hurts like fuck. I just had 3 teeth removed today. I had a mild sedative to calm me down, some cream that was supposed to freeze my hand, but they put it someplace other than where they actually pit the IV in, and an IV of something to put me to sleep for them to do the work. My gums are fine, despite having had 3 adult teeth removed, and stitches put in. However, my jaw is fucking sore. Plus, when I woke up a second time, and tried to walk around, I got dizzy and light headed and nauseas (which never happens normally when I get light headed/dizzy). It happened twice, and hasn't since. This sucks, because I couldn't eat or drink anything since 5 AM, so I'm hungry, but I'm still a bit nauseas, and I can't eat very much :/

Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, The Second Coming
Post by: Bobbias on March 07, 2008, 04:38:57 AM
They gave me a couple Tylenol 3's. Luckily, the pain has almost completely gone away, except for a bit of soreness in the jaw. It kinda feels like I got punched by someone right on the jaw. The gaping holes in my mouth bug me a bit when I eat something, and have to try not to get food into them, and any weird movement of my tongue (ie. to direct food, or to get a bit that's in them out of them) causes some pain, but it's not that bad..

Surprisingly, the IV I got was not as bad as I thought it would be. I figured it's hurt more than a normal injection, but except when they had to adjust the thing, it only hurt when they first put it in. Of course, I'd had a bit of laughing gas, and some Diazepam/Valium (I believe.) Oddly enough, I have absolutely no idea where they put the IV. I never really got to clearly see where it was, and I don't remember the pain well enough, because of the stuff in the IV, and there's nowhere on my arm that hurts, or shows any outward signs of it, lol.

Well, at least I don't have to worry about those cavities giving me another toothache, and maybe I won't need my wisdom teeth out, since there'll be more room in my jaw now (2 of the teeth were the last molar on each side, so there's a gap between my teeth and my wisdom teeth on both sides now). The other one is 2 teeth back from the last molar on the right side of my jaw.

its really awkward having a bisexual friend who happens to be attracted to me, come over and stay for two days.

i mean, the guy has a lady friend he is sorta with, but that isn't really doing anything.

on the good side, i slept in the basement, so i got no awkward attempts at man love.

if he was an attractive girl, things would be different, but not with my luck.

ohh and he showed me this, it looks interesting so im going along with it.

aparently /v/(as a /v/irgin i should know these things) plays it, so yea.  im located in Srinagar, Pakistan.

ohh, so i get a cancer sore on the back left side of my tongue about two weeks ago, it heals, i go a week with no problems...then it decides to come back, on the other side.

That blows. In a book I read recently for English the author talked about how ridiculous those moral tests are (and also urine samples).
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, The Second Coming
Post by: Bobbias on March 08, 2008, 11:41:07 AM
Be thankful it's not hair samples. They can detect if someone's smoked pot months after a person has stopped, with drug tests on hair. (Well, depending on the hair length and such, I believe.)

But you know, I think that's something else different between Canada and the US. I've only heard of drug tests in Canada for jobs like cops and stuff, as opposed to more normal jobs. I've never heard of someone going for a normal job and needing to provide a urine sample. (Though I did have had a bit of an ethics test when I applied at Elcan. I felt bad for answering "yes" to "I feel my social life is better when I hang out at bars." :/)

Also, this blows. I haven't had a half-decent night's sleep in 3 or 4 days now. I can't seem to sleep for more than an hour or 2 before waking up again, and taking an hour to get back to sleep (if I do at all). And my days have been rather mixed, considering I've been feeling crappy either because of the painkillers making me nauseas, being really hungry, because we don't have much food, and I have trouble eating some stuff since I've still got some tender gaping holes in my mouth.  I really need to sleep, but my GF will be calling between 1 and 2, so that's not even worth it any more. I'm running on a mix of jittery tired energy from lack of sleep, caffeine from the coke I'm drinking, and a bit of the left over effects of the last T3's I took.

Holy crap, I just noticed: Today at just after 2 AM we set a new record in the number of people online at once. Now we're up to 18. However, this place is still fucking dead. Everyone needs to post more, instead of lurking.

I might be goin old school today for my first IIDX style. I'm going to Primm (small city right outside of Vegas) to a mall and Buffalo Bill's casino to ride the roller coaster. According to ddrfreak it has a beatmania complete mix 2 and IIDX 6th style. I remember distinctly hearing about the 6th style machine and it's not the greatest by far, but it should be interesting  for my first style in the arcade provided its not completely fucked up or turned off because it's not DDR. God I hate arcades, especially gameworks that do that. They say it's turned off "for maintenence" yet it's always off because they're dumb.

Just got back. That roller coaster was intense (in a good way). Tallest one i've been on so far and fastest and biggest drop lol.

Also, got to play IIDX 6th in the arcade. It was a bit offsync so my scores were about a grade lower than normal and it took me a few tries to figure out how options and stuff work (only thing I knew of IIDX AC was how to select Another difficluty on older styles). I wasn't too bad other than that, but I was missing scratches about 95% of the time...it's so much harder lol.

I played about 3 games and my last one was Holic [a] to see how close I would be to home and I failed with 62%, not too bad.

Woo, so my dad's van broke down today.  The transmission totally pooped out on it.  There's a fun grinding noise when you put it into gear.  We were driving back from shooting some photos when it happened -- we were driving on my street when GRRREEASKDKDOKOAO{WEOOFDSOAKFEOAW.  Luckily, we were able to pull into a parking lot before the thing just refused to go.

The events leading up to that were strange.  My dad spontaneously cleaned out my car today.  He didn't even know why he did it, but he felt that he had to.  Basically, he just cleaned out a few things, removed some of the things I had stuffed in the center console, vacuumed the carpet and stuff, and took the loose change and pens out of it.  When we were walking back to the minivan after taking the photos, I took a picture of the minivan for some inexplicable reason.  It's almost as if it were meant to happen.

Oh well, at least he can drive my Saturn around.  I'm not exactly going to need it (I'm not even going to take it with me to Maryland when I go back -- there's no point since I can use my company car for personal use; it would just wind up taking up another valuable parking spot at our apartment).

On the bright side, he did wind up getting $250 for the van, plus a tow.  That'll be enough to put an exhaust on my car that doesn't make the engine sound ten sizes larger than it is.

That said, I took my Saturn out for the first time since I'd left for Florida in January.  Oh maaaaaaaan, I'm going to miss that car. :(  It's just so much fun to drive.  I love the fact that the pedal is directly connected to the accelerator and that I actually have gears.  It just has a great feel to it.

I like my Five Hundred and all, but it's very obvious that it's built for comfort and work rather than fun.  The accelerator is electronically controlled and it doesn't actually have gears -- it has one of those constantly variable transmissions.  Very smooth ride, very easy starts and stops, but...it's not as fun.

They Might Be Giants were awesome. They played a bunch of my favorite songs, and it was amazing.

Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, The Second Coming
Post by: Spectere on March 13, 2008, 12:24:05 AM
They still have standard transmissions available, it just depends on the car.  Automatic transmissions are still an option in most cars.  Also, considering that I drove almost a thousand miles last week, I'm glad my company car is an automatic.

Speaking of smallish cars with serious power, I really want a Saturn Sky with an LS-7.  Hoooooly shit.  A tuning shop in Ohio released a run of Pontiac Solstices and Saturn Skies with LS2s, LS7s, and turbocharged LS7s.  For as light as those cars are, those things would just scream.

I have a lot of fun with my Saturn, even if it's an automatic (it does have a factory-installed toggleable performance chip, after all...heh).  The thing is light enough (under 2000 lbs) that even its little DOHC LL0 motor (1.9L 124hp/122ft-lbf) gets the thing going pretty quick.  It annoys the hell out of me when people look at the spec sheet for my car and just assume that it's a dog.  The fact that my SC2 is at least a thousand pounds lighter than most cars in its class pushes it ahead of a lot of other vehicles.

Also I just watched Disturbia, really good movie. It had a lot of similarities with Transformers, and not just the actor who plays the main characters.

I would have probably enjoyed it more if it weren't so damn predictable. :P

Coopers don't have particularly powerful engines.  They're fast for the same reason that my Saturn is a bit zippy -- they're small and light cars.

The top of the line Coopers come fitted with 1.6L 171hp I4s.  The Saturn Sky Red Line is a tad bit heavier (only about 200lbs) but pushes 260hp.  If you were to slap a Corvette's engine into it you'd wind up with a frightening amount of power for a small car.

Also, Magnum with a Hemi.  Want.

glasses are weird.  i was embarrassed to wear them when i first got mine, but time passes, and i honestly don't notice them for the most part.

i do look sexier with them off however, but theres no fucking way im getting contacts.  i had a subscription for contacts, so all i needed to do was put them in and i could leave...i ended up leaving without the contacts because they wouldn't fucking let me have them if i couldn't get them in.  so basically, i wasted an hour of piddling around trying to get those motherfuckers in, only to end up with frustration and nothing.

SORRY I CAN NOT SPREAD MY EYES OPEN AS WIDE AS YOU CAN PEEL THEM WHILE JAMMING A PIECE OF PLASTIC IN MY EYE!

wellp, soon as i am not lazy ill give that smb3 another shot.

also



ololol stork must hate his life, always #2.

well thats what he gets for playing against the best current terran player.

for some reason, i got enjoyment out of seeing the look on flashes face after he won, then he goes off to hug his mom.  it would be pretty freaking kickass to dominate a tournament of a major spectator sport of the country, twice (i believe its twice, unless he won more), at the age of 15.

also, the new lowes commercial, the music for said commercial reminds me of dragon warrior for some reason.  it sounds freakishly similar to something ive heard in dragon quest monsters.

*edit* hellz yea, found the uncropped image of that thing i was looking for.  booyah.

*edit* odd, cannot find rawm of smb3, and i REALLY don't want to find the nes and smb3 cart.  guess ill just not play it for now.  thinking of playing earthbound when im not lazy, problem is, im lazy.  i know its a good game, ive gotten all the way to summers some 6-7 years ago, but that file is long dead.

got to love price drops in technology.

also, don't be retarded and order all of your shit, it comes in, you get ready to put it together...only to realise you need to order a bigger power supply because your video card takes more than the old power supply can put out.  I LEARNT THIS THE HARD WAY!

i love this website, the only place i know where you can buy awesome stuff like this.

The Keystroker emulates a keyboard and mouse and periodically makes random mouse movements and types out odd garbage text and phrases. A simple jumper setting allows you to choose between either keyboard garbage typing, annoying mouse movements or both. An adjustment pot sets the duration between "events". We recommend you don't set it too frequently so as to extend the agony. Your hapless co-worker pal will think his computer has been possessed or infected by a destructive virus. As he writhes in anger and furiously dials tech support you can rest easy with a job well done.

i swear, i must buy one of these when i have $25 laying around.

What hype? The game didn't have any. And reviews of it were mostly low.

That said, it's an amazing game. Most of the reviews tried to compare it to Grand Theft Auto or other ridiculous things. It's a seriously old school game that is easily one of the most geniously written anythings ever.

guess im lucky with the religion thing.  my mom is christian, my dad is somewhere inbetween athiest and agnostic (i THINK the exact term is agnostic athiesm, but its a bit to complicating for me to wrap my head around.), my sister is christian(or some branch of the religion, but its nothing wacky), and i believe the same things as my dad.

mom goes to church, sister believes in what she believes in, dad and i don't bother with that stuff.  our family gets along great, no conflict whatsoever on any front, let alone religion. even when i do bring it up, it ends up going into a conversation on how other families don't seem to have the acceptance that people believe in different things. 

now i will say i am spoiled for many things, but this alone is what i am most thankful for.  who needs cool stuff when your family gets along fine, and life is good.

too damn bad world piece isn't going to happen, it just further delays the advances we could be having in technology.  no sir, i don't give a damn in what you believe in, you don't need to blow up that school bus full of children.  ohh the primitive world we live in.  i watch too much star trek =/

that aside, i woke up, fappd' thought about making a sandwitch, now i kind of want a sandwitch, and a korg kp3.

and avatar changed for mister spectere, so he can get his fap on at work in front of his boss, while his boss is on his grill making some philly cheesesteak and watching professional poker on a giant projector screen tv, with picture in picture of spectere fappan.

Post by: Bobbias on March 24, 2008, 05:37:42 AM
Well, my mom was raised roman catholic, my dad, I don't know. Neither of them go to church or care about any of that. I was raised in a catholic school, but specifically raised to be able to make my own choices. I understand the catholic/christian faith, but I'd prefer to think that whether or not god exists doesn't make any difference anyway.

I don't think you can prove whether god exists or not anyway. Every single argument I've heard from both the atheism and the theism sides can be refuted. Nothing is concrete, and I don't believe there IS a way to prove it. I'd like to think that instead of getting all worked up about whether god exists or not, we should find our own morals. I believe that regardless of who he was, Jesus had some good ideas. I don't believe that the church is what Jesus would have wanted it to be, so I ignore much of what the church has to say about things. I may not read the bible, but I know quite a good amount about it, thanks to going to catholic schools all my life. I agree with many of the teachings of Jesus, and the ones I don't agree with, I have my own ideas of. If god really does exist, I'll find out when I die, and he can judge me however he's supposed to judge me. I can only hope that if he does exist, he judges fairly and justly, and that he's more the forgiving god that jesus describes, than the vengeful god of the jews.

And if he doesn't exist, well, no loss for me. I haven't been a saint, and who knows if I would go to heaven. Not existing is just like you never existed in the first place. It's like how you can wake up after a night of heaving drinking and forget parts, or all of the night. Those things you forgot are like they never happened, according to your memory. Think about that happening to you for all eternity. You don't exist. Sure, people around you will still feel the effects of you living, but for you, it's like being asleep eternally without dreaming. You simply don't exist.

Ok, I'm stopping now because this is turning into yet ANOTHER wall of text. I've got this insane habit of doing that when I've been up all night. :/

Organized religion / monotheism is bullshit, in my opinion.  I don't hate people who follow these types of religions; it's their own choice, but I hate people who try and push their beliefs on others (missionaries and such).

My mom is a Roman Catholic who takes religion seriously, you couldn't have a solid argument with her without her avoiding the argument or filling it with ad hominem.  My dad and brother aren't religious, and my sister is a Christian who feels that the modern church isn't what Jesus would have wanted.

I was raised in pretty much areligious household. My mom's a semi-practicing Jew while my dad is a non-religious Christian (Catholic dad, Lutheran mom; baptised as a Lutheran). Neither of them really cared enough to try and force me into either of their religions. Granted, my dad did want to have me baptised at birth, and my mom wanted me to have a bar mitzfah, but I didn't end up having either. Personally, I see myself as an agnostic. I don't hate any religion, even though I see much of it as obsolete, but at the same time I can't stand religious fanaticism or anything of the like.

You should probably just stop listening to them. DMC4 is easily better than 3. Better graphics, better sound, super smooth control, better balance on difficulty, a much MUCH improved skill system and Nero's Devil Bringer probably makes him better than Dante. It's super awesome and I'll be running through it on Son of Sparda difficulty soon. People just like to bitch bitch bitch that Dante goes back through Nero's stages in reverse but they're switched up quite a bit anyway and Dante's so different that you won't even care anyway.

It's easier, I'd say. At least, it is on the first two levels of difficulty. The game has 6. Human, Devil Hunter, Son of Sparda, Dante Must Die, Heaven or Hell and Hell or Hell. Human's pretty easy and should definitely get people used to the game. Devil Hunter's a bit harder. Then it jumps and the game becomes brutal after that. I don't even know how hard anything above SoS mode is. I would guess ridiculous.

and now today is a day of more pizza (i swear im not a pizza addict) hunting down a monster bfc, and some dungeons and dragons.

7cleric/3 paladin of freedom-4 fighter

fuckton of ac, and nice damage dealing capabilities with healing to boot makes him a fun character to play.  not to mention a stupidly high diplomacy skill.  "hay orcs, yall want to help the dwarves out to defend against the north?"  "orcs: kay"

and if i happen to die of a heart attack

blame pizza hut, monster, and pizza sams

yeap, gestalt.  just a mildly short campaign we are playing before one of our friends gets his star wars game started up, and even that would be only until the summer when we start a 4th edition game.

its been fun so far, not to mention the only gestalt game ive done.  we usually just do standard 3.5, or the star wars rpg(which i personally prefer to 3.5, i am more into the sci-fi settings over generic medieval fantasy).

and to sir sneaky, i may start attempting to get into shape (AGAIN!) soon.  this new fangled mp3 player should make exercising alone a bit easier.

*edit*  game was awesome, lots of awesome happened. 

and monster bfc's are like, big, and awesome.

I'm still addicted to pop/soda. I do mean addicted. Quitting would be hell for me. Especially staying quit.

Post by: MortifiedocAlot on March 29, 2008, 02:10:38 AM
I never understood how people can drink a lot of dark soda. Then again I never understood how people can pick up smoking and be "addicted". I have a friend who casually smoke (2 to 3 a day really) and he's done it for years and still says it isn't addicting.
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, The Second Coming
Post by: Bobbias on March 29, 2008, 03:49:06 AM
Well, my mom and (now) my brother are both addicted to smoking. I don't think that my brother is willing to accept that he's addicted, but it's pretty apparent when he's going on about not having had a smoke for a while and really needing one and all that. I've smoked cigars, as well as weed and I can say that there was a big difference between tobacco and weed. After smoking a cigar, I had this small urge in the back of mind that was more or less saying "that was good, how about you smoke another one" (or something like that, you get my point). But after smoking weed, nothing. Just a thought of "hmm, that was pretty nice."

It's hard to explain the difference between an addictive urge and just simply wanting to do something. An addictive urge is like something that keeps going on in the back of your mind. If I don't have a Coke for more than say, 4 hours straight, I feel like I need another one. I get this anxious feeling, coupled with a craving for Coke. (You know, like when you feel liek you really want something, be it pizza, or some other snack, specifically?)

Depending on the time of day, and how long it's been since I last had a can of Coke, I might even develop a (rather unpleasant) headache, due to not having Coke.

Even when you're fully aware of your addiction, it's not a single bit easier to stop it. And it makes you that much more miserable, because you know you're addicted, but feel like you can't do anything about it.

I know I could quit if I REALLY wanted to. But I don't want to quite that bad. I like the taste of Coke. In fact, even without the addiction aspect, I prefer Coke to pretty much any other drink out there. It's a combination of the carbonated aspect, and the flavor itself.

My sister's been smoking for a year and a half almost. About a month ago she told me she was going to quit, and taped up her box of cigarettes so she wouldn't have any more. Of course, she started again. I'm not sure whether to be disappointed or to just not care.
Title: Re: Lame Replies Thread, The Second Coming
Post by: Bobbias on March 29, 2008, 02:26:22 PM
Well, for some people, it's really hard. Some people just get more addicted than others. But at any level, it's hard. I'd say urge her to quit unless she's gotten to a point where she honestly believes she can't quit, or just has way too hard of a time. Don't be too hard on her, but at least let her know that she really should quit.

Or just don't care. It's up to you.

lets see, well its still a bit too cold to go out for a walk at night.  the windchill makes it about as cold as it was when there was snow out, lets hope we get a nice moderate temperature for a nice long time soon.  only problem with that is, moderate temperature leads to hot temperature, and hot temperature leads to around 2-3 months of misery and going into the basement just to stay cool.  but, until then, enjoy the cold while i can.

Posting here at the D-Pad, a local gaming place with like two dozen TVs and a bunch of Wiis, 360s and playhuegs. Been here since 10, partying with a dozen friends and playing all manner of games: DDR, GH3, rock band, SSBB, etc. Also raping people at Goldeneye :>

Highlight of the night: going across the street to a McDonalds (whose drive-thru is open 24 hours a day) with two guys and ordering $75 worth of breakfast and dinner food. The lady, after I ordered (which was a meticulous process), told me that I "better pay for this food," because she had my license plate and would call the cops if I didn't pay. Hahahaha. It took them a good 10 minutes to make our food and by the time we drove away from the restaraunt with 5 drinks and 3 HUGE bags of food, there were ELEVEN CARS in line behind us, all waiting "patiently" for us to GTFO. The guys in the car directly behind us heard me ordering a million things and were cracking up the whole time, because they thought it was a prank. They were like o_o when they found out we were for srs.

shitty job = money

start college --> leads to less shitty job ~~~> perhaps even a good job

or even

shitty job --(work experience)--> less shitty job

lets hope i get in,  this michigan state here has some ~8% unemployment rate

THEY TOOK MY JERBS

*edit*

on an emo note, the raid leader for my old guild passed away today.  painkiller overdose.  he was a cool guy, and the game wouldn't have been as fun without him.  (which it wasn't, after the guild fell apart last year)

*edit for stepmania*

since the dawn of my sm career, i have never AA'd kilgas "never gonna come back down" and i continue to only get an A on that sonbitch.  at the same time, i 20 greated quasar 1.5, and AAA's eggmans A.  but i guess overall, those songs have less "bullshit" notes in them.

*edit*

also, i am looking for free video recording software

something to record a "lets play" of contra on, but with what i tried of camstudio, i got a mediocre/bad quality short video (beat level 1) that was 65mb.  65mb for a video of that length/quality is unacceptable,  how the hell are people uploading these 10minute videos to youtube with good quality?

Haha, same approach to the beard as me. Except that I usually ignore the itch until someone bitches at me to shave. At this point, I'm so used to having a beard (even if it is kinda scraggly and stuff :/) that I don't like being shaven, lol. I've developed a habit of stroking my beard when I think, lmao.

But yeah, part of the reason my bears is as scraggly as it is is because of my dad. He's not exactly the best genetic material as far as beard growing is concerned.

The best advice I can give you is that, during interviews, your attitude is whatever will get you the job. Always emphasize how well you get along with people, ESPECIALLY with retail. Retail selling is about creating a rapport between you and the customer. Whether or not you continue to fake it after being hired is irrelevant.

I need to start to find a job again. As soon as I can, I need to get the tires fixed on my car, get my license and maybe get a paper route. $600/month on average for a few hours of delivery each night.

Nice. I applied at Elcan again. They had a job fair yesterday that I went to. When I mentioned I was going for Electronics Engineering Technician , and PLC programming, the guy sorta laughed and said that he was going into a course for PLC programming soon. He asked me about my experience soldering and that, and I mentioned that I've done some small time stuff (like fixing the Guitar Hero controller, and fixing the RF adapter for my Gamecube a while back), but nothing that required extreme precision or anything. I wish it'd been a bit more formal, and we had a bit more time, lol. It's hard to make a lasting impression when you're just talking for about 5 minutes and handing them your resume. Hopefully my mention of PLC programming and computer programming  as a hobby made enough of an impression. Then again, it's not even up to that guy :/ Elcan's way of screening prospective employees is pretty impersonal :/

I know about that, I always wear a nice T shirt (something with a collar) and act pretty up beat but I'm still unemployed. Also I wanted to work stock.

Lol, yeah, I want to work stock, if I have to work in some retail place. A lot less customer interaction.

Just got done doing ESOL tutoring at the library for the first time. Taught two women who were from Syria English. It was actually kinda cool, they're already pretty good at English so a lot of it was just explaining weird stuff like saturated fat and mincing vegetables. Now I'm off to practice again, I have practice from 9 to 7ish today but dipped to come here. I don't wanna go back, we aren't even doing much D:

working stock at say 1am at say a place like super walmart would kick ass.

no uniform (i believe, i talked to people that worked there and he said it was fine to wear his normal clothes), less people, easy work.  doesn't sound too bad of a job.

in the meantime, i lifted a small bit last night, something to start getting into the routine again.  arms feel dead, its a nice feeling.

Stock is a very hard job to get accepted for. I worked Christmas overnight stock for Target a few years back. It's the easiest way to get the job. Staying on the team after Christmas is ridiculously difficult though. They are very picky and don't really need a whole lot of people. I also didn't do the best job so I obviously didn't stay there. It was $10/hr to start on weekdays and $11/hr on weekends with guaranteed 36 hours every week though so it was definitely good pay.

Yeah, I figured it would a pain to get stock, but working with costumers there would be a pain.

LOL PAEG 100 GET GUYS.

Apparently.

But yeah, I'd like to work stock. Despite not being one of those guys who can lift a lot of weight, or is used to doing a lot of that stuff, I don't mind that sort of work. I complain and all that, but that's just my way of dealing with it. Stuff like that, I don't leave something half finished. I make sure I get the job done, and get it done right.
