The ADHD is Real...

Well, to anyone reading this, welcome welcome!
I've been a long time Runescape player and have, for better or worse, stuck with RS3/ since its release.
I go in spurts. I get distracted by life, and hyper focus on things. Inevitably I take a turn right back to Runescape.
Something about its nostalgia + its ADHD Capable gaming system keeps me coming back to waste my time (I mean, I believe all video games are in many ways a waste of time, doesn't keep me from playing them a helluva lot).
I got back into it once the significant other got kicked outa the picture, and strangely have been doing much better ><.
I used to have no level 99 skills and now I have 5... Ive always just spread out my time on all skills because I get too bored grinding one. But for some reason I was finally able to grind out a few lol. 
I finished Plagues End and Birthright of Dwarves.. got Imcando Mattock and Pickaxe (working towards Earth and Song since mining is already 99). 
Honestly most of what was made easier was because Priff opened up to me... made things so much easier to grind on certain skills.
Finally have money, to where 6-7mil isnt "a lot of gold" to me anymore lol. (Managed Luck of the Dwarves, Grace of the Elves, and a few other middle-highend items)
I remember the days when just getting a regular ole Rune Platebody was worth more than most of my bank... Just glad I can finally be on the upper-ish end of capability lol.
Total Level 2468
99: Mining, Smithing, Fishing, Cooking, Divination.
So, just kinda an update. Ive been at home mostly, taking online classes and jobless (i hate that last part honestly) so all I Have to do is randomly grind on Runescape lololoololooool
Wave2:glow2: Selling Rune Ess 20 Each (psych)

Getting Back Into Things

so, im just getting back into the swing of Runescape. I made a post earlier on the general forum hoping some people can give some advice since it's been a while since I've played!   Ive been alot happier this go around. Though my stats are nowhere close to where they were as a whole... I got Runecrafting up to 58, because the runespan did not exist when i played last! much much easier to power level, just dont get the GP from the runes, but im ok with this because its alot easier to just auto random stuff in the runespan.   I only got 1 month of membership, so i bought 1K pure ess to turn into Laws and Nature runes while I can since im a high enough level for both now. Im going to focus on law runes this go around to get my mage up easily from 39 where its at. Just enough to get to high alchemy! I miss being able to high alch Yew Longbows. Too bad im only 51 Fletching atm :(   Prices have changed so much. Flax alone used to cost waaaay more than 10GP from what I remember. Now I can buy it and make bowstrings instead of plucking them myself!   2Mil so far saved up. Already 1/3 of the way to the small amount of wealth I had on my old acount lol. But, I did have expensive items in my bank and items from high level quests i miss. :( I Remember doing Barrows and getting a few Torag pieces before I had to stop playing originally.   860 on my total level, im just trying to level everything up towards 50. Power leveling Fletching and got to 54, using that to do maple bows, bought 5K of them to make into bows... Then Ill string them up as best I can before I run out of membership to make as much money as possible! I already went from 1.2Mil to about 2.2Mil since becoming a member. I know it doesnt sound like alot, but realize I dont have any skills above 60 atm! lol   Anyways, im having fun, its taking up all my depressing empty time for the moment.

PoPo (not no DBZ)

Pretty sure I just narrowly avoided a ticket. Was on my way to work, it was 9:50, had to be here at 10:00. I was kiiinda speeding, going 70ish in a 60. I see blue lights, pull over, he pulls behind me (never changed lanes or anything so i assumed it was for me in the right lane). Suddenly, he notices this random person on FOOT on this bridge section of the highway about 20 feet in front of me. He proceeds, still with his flashers, to pass right in front of me, completely ignore me (though he originally DID stop briefly behind me, pretty sure he didn't see the pedestrian till he had stopped) and instead went to talk to the pedestrian guy and didn't even look at me. SoOo, of course I dont bother waiting and just left, didn't wanna be late! LOL. SoOo Lucky and SooOo Glad. Sat there going "shizna, the popo! *pull over* wait... is that someone WALKING?" Cop I guess thought the same thing and figured "I wonder why this guy was speed--- Who the hell is this sketchball walking on a narrow shoulder? He could cause an accident..." And got a lil ADD like me hahah! Its illegal to speed... but its also illegal to walk along a highway/interstate, and the bridge was like the worst place to be caught doing it, lucky for meeee~ ROFL

Well Dagg

unfortunately Just what I thought would happen did...   I recently started to play RS3 again, as per my other blog entries... I started divination got to 33 in it, and noticed potential for crafting with it. Transmute 3 iron into 1 silver, transmute 3 silver into 1 gold... Iron is easy to mine, Im lvl 80 mining. Silver and Gold are pretty easy too, but the locations are not as good, only mining at the crafting guild would be consistent enough. But its kinda far from a bank...   I figured I could just mine a BuuUuunch of iron, like lets say to start 3K. Then you transmute that into 1K silver, and then into 300ish gold. MAYBE inefficient, but only if you dont collect all the weavable dreams. beforehand lol. Should only take 1K of those...   Idk if this is efficient at all, but i figured its faster to mine iron then it is to mine silver or gold, and having to mine so much more of it also means more mining exp over all.   I have also used the coal carts since they updated them. I remember when only like 4 loads fit into it, I sat there for quite a while until I discovered mine was 196 when full XD. Freaked me out at first too when i didn't have to MANUALLY fill the coal trucks lol. I got 196+28 coal last night XD Didn't think the cart would hold that much so didnt think id be there that long ROFL. half an hour maybe ish on that?   ANyways, the problem though... is that my old arse laptop ive had since 2008 does not have what is considered a decent processor anymore... So, RS3 loads to the "Play!" page with the worlds menu, I log in, saw one still shot of the screen, and got logged out about 30 seconds after logging in. Not enough minerals to play this game :\ So, guess thats what RSOS/07Scape is for, THAT will indeed load just fine :P

Hmm... maybe something to this...(Screens)

SOoo... Since Sunday I have been playing Runescape again! Been very happy in many ways.   I didn't realize they had kept some old jagex servers for 07scape at first, if you read my last blog entry lol. I started to play that again from scratch and got to a total level of 347. I was having a lot of fun, brought back some ole memories.   Theres a screen of my skills lol. I had alot of fun sunday at work (as im sitting down at a computer for long periods of time anyway, bored out of my mind in most cases), and I continued onto monday and tuesday. Went to WC and Fletching, my go to skills (what I remember to be the two best money making combo, coupled with runecrafting nats for high alching longbows lol)   Only trouble I have is that there is no Grand Exchange... I know I heard of a site that people can look for items and stuff, but I long for a time where people would stand at the banks of the main cities and just yell out items they were selling in pretty colors. rofl. Alas, there are not enough people in the servers these days to do so.   HOWEVER.. this does not sadden me THAT much. It kind of motivates me as far as in the game overall. It makes me want to get VERY high levels again and be completely self sufficient, only looking to find extremely rare items when I have a lot of money saved. But do what my old account did. Ill be happy with that just for the nostalgia.       BUT, I DID take the advice of some others and give RS3 a try... I had no idea where I was at when I logged in, so I home teled and just tried to get reaquainted with stuff. The only skill I had under 30-40 was Divination.. so I went for that and learned the skill a bit. I clicked a ton on the windows and started to get a feel for the interface. It DID take my old eyes a while to understand, and also to notice the adjustable sizes XD. Although I still dont necessarily like the fight mechanics... I will admit the graphics are ridiculous. And skilling is almost the same otherwise. I got to 22-23 Div and decided to try the skills i remember. I mined some ores, even used some div to weave iron into silver. I think I found a new way to get crafting up while mining a bit :P. I remember silver mining being annoying, but iron is just about everywhere...   Anyways,.. so its not a complete loss i suppose. I do still have all my armor and stuff, though I feel like I have less money then I remember... but I have over 300 of every rune at least... allllll my pure essence, about 4Ks worth, and some pouches for abyssal runecrafting still lol. I tried my hand at that and got about 200 more laws and nature runes each in just a few runs. Not alot of XP, but I do remember it being money lol. Mined some more ess to replenish (i remembered the magic guild tele in yanille)   I guess I was mostly confused by 1) the graphics and where the heckle I was (still dont know exactly..) and 2) learning the interface. It DID take me some time to learn that... but I was doing a menial task, starting divination lol. I attacked some stray creatures, but since my account is actually i think 167 combat now? (did they change the number on these things too...?) Most things between lumbridge and seers village dont hurt me... So I learned the fight mechanic a bit without risk of dying, and clicked the windows and figured out how to arrange and remove and all this. The chat window is still a mystery to me, but hey who knows. Atm on RS3, just fishing monks. Still only 81 fishing, Gotta work on it :P. And ill cook em too, 81 cooking lol. I'm kind of glad I get both RS3 and 07scape actually... now im twice as happy since I took yawls advice and tried it XD   SO THANKS GUYS

IM BACK BABAY

HAH! So I saw the RSOS on my previous blog (someone else brought it to my attention) Man ive been living under SOME rock to not have known about this. I currently have a job on weekends that leaves me with ALOT of computer time. Ive been looking for a game to keep me occupied, but RS3 was too much.   I am mostly broke, but my father, knowing how bored I gets, graciously let me get a 1 month sub starting TODAY, specifically to play RSOS!   So Skullshogun lives again!   Starting from lvl 1 in each skill again lol. Now at least I kinda know what to do to power level to at least a decent skill level in each! im so happy. Time to start with getting my dudes combat stats to level 10 each! then ill start WC and fletching , and runecrafting. MY favorite skills :3   Glad to be back to the old school runescape I remember leaving!

RETIRED... disappointed...Reminiscing...

Sad day... I used to frequent Sal's and Runescape on a daily basis for sooo long...   Sadly, events arose I could no longer play runescape as regularly as I used to. I played as a member for a little over a year, but I was F2P for the longest, I couldn't say for how long before. Multiple years.   I loved the game, I tried to play it in school even though we had blocks on the computers. I would always come home to play it. It was fun and simple and even though I have massive ADD it held my attention with all the different skills you could do. I was a skiller mostly, but later grew my combat abilities as well. I had some help, MY friend was a decent player who had 99 in a few skills. He wasnt a "let me get 1st place in this skill" kinda guy, but he did good work, made some money, got some neat items to mess around with.   I remember my last sets of items.. I had a full set of Guthens? I believe it was... Barrows armor with the spear and lifesteal properties with the set. I also had dragon scimmy, dragon hatchet, dragon pick, I definitely remember my DDP++ lol. Never had the plate or legs, too expensive for me. But I did have 12-13Mil in the bank last i remembered.   So I login for the first time since Runescape 3.0 came out, I knew I had sold a few things before membership expired, and the rest is sitting in my bank as "members only" items still. I sold my Barrows set. All I have left thats recognizable (by that I mean iconic, the rest are all semi-quest items and small materials for stuff I dont remember how to do so well lol) are my dragon pic, hatchet, and scimmy, got a full rune set still, crystal bow with black D hide, and some rune essence.   So you know, Runecrafting was my favorite skill, so I always had at least 1K essence in the bank and often mined in Ks with abyssal pouches. I often ran through the abyss to craft nature runes and law runes when I Was a member. But the rest of the materials, probably summoning stuff. charms and crystals, a whoooole bunch of seeds I have kept (I DID dabble in farming, low level though).   I remember so much about the game, and If it were the same as I remembered, maybe just with updated graphics (but on the SAME ENGINE and everything), then Id definitely go back to being a member...   But The layout on Runescape 3 is so... different...I really feel like an old man. When I played there weren't so many different forms of interface.. I realize, being an MMORP you're always in competition with big names like World of Warcraft but still. The whole reason I preferred it was because of the simple interface... I worked very hard on my account, even though I was never the best I DO still have ADD lol. But I got a good bit done. NEver hit a 99, but was fairly sufficient in every skill available at the time. I even had a decent slayer level, summoning, thieving, agility, even construction. Now my house is inaccessible, if it even still exists... kinda sucks I spent money to make it and wont be getting it back lol.   I feel like I have to start a new account on level 1, I cant get back into it with my old acount. Its too high a level for F2p, and i just dont seem to understand how to play anymore :(. It used to be easy enough but I seriously feel like they have doubled the amount of windows and then some. My bank is full anyway from all the members items.. I just feel bummed that though I still have my original account, I have to start over on almost a new platform just to play Runescape again :(. I really wish it was back to 2.0 era... They updated the graphics once that I got to see, and i wish it would have stayed that way. I really wanted to go back to it because here recently I have the time to actually play it like I used to!   I played the most in middle and highschool, then for about a year in college. After that I got too busy with the difficulty of college courses, I had to stop for a while. I cancelled my membership, when I previously kept it going even when I wasnt using it..Made me sad almost, because again, even at that point I had played for so long I felt like I was shutting a part of myself away. That may seem extreme, but its not like I meant my life would get any worse because of it. I FELT that way, but I knew in reality, sometimes you just have to have change in your life. And I had to have it then.   Now I have a parttime job where I am on my 2008 laptop the entire time (as suggested by my own employer lol), and It can't really run much of anything... So naturally, I thought of RUNESCAPE! It just kinda makes me sad to feel like Skullshogun is dead...   I'm gonna give RS3 a try... gonna make a new account and treat it as a "new game". I dont know if ill be able to get into it like I did skullshogun... if not... then I'm retired for good... man that will be a sad day. I actually LIKE Runescape, and to think if i can't get into it because of the interface (confusing the zamarok outa me) or because I just odnt like it.. I think ill be honestly depressed.   It may sound stupid... but Growing up I wasnt POOR, but I wasnt exactly rich.. I tried not to ask for stuff even though I was an only child because I knew at a young age money was an issue. And though I love platform games, and have owned a few, I rarely owned very many games for them and often had to replay them. If I did I earned it with chores or as I got older with my own money. But in school, the only game I could play was free, and later proving I could juggle my love of runescape and schoolwork was given membership. It was all I needed to entertain me for the longest. People to talk to and skill with, they could help you to do quests, just joke around... It was the only way I could "get out of the house" with an overprotective family, and feel like I had friends. It sounds terribly pathetic.. But whats funny is, I initially went to Runescape because 2 friends introduced it to me. Well, Ok, REIntroduced it to me. I had orginally found RS when it was in CLASSIC, and I forgot the link (I was REALLY young) and never went back to it. RS2, friends showed it to me, but That is when Skullshogun was born. I think part of the reason I liked it was because I knew at least 2 of those little pixelated characters who were chatting to me were real too.   Bleh...   Thats my old fart retired blog post. I may be on here posting random stuffs, who knows. Gotta take a look around... so much has changed..

F*** Yeah!

Lilshu told me about the update to remove filters.   I think this is the BEST F***ING DAY IN RS HISTORY!!!   lmao, ok so not really THAT important...   But I did just log in JUST to drop a couple Fbombs in amazement hahaha.       Other news... looks like im fracked today kids. haha.   Have a HTML+CSS project due at midnight, and I have work today for 5 hours, effectively cutting down the time I can actually WORK on it...

Almost There!

done pretty well thus far. w00, ill reach my 1 month goals haha   80 mining already, so thats taken care of for now. 84 wcing, and only 270K exp to go for my goal. All that would be left after that is 1 rc level.. which is what? like 56K exp. Got 4K pure ess waitin for me =p     Side from that, I automatically level up to lvl 21 on friday.. w00? idk. Feel like it'll be like every other birthday. Terribly boring and fail haha. Maybe this year will turn out different? After all, I will be drinking .   I want maybe when I turn 21 to be a bartender lol. Just do friday nights and weekends at a bar. would be so awesome. Hate my job now. Work for an answering service. Dam Dr's offices... Not gonna go any more into it then that.

More Updates, Wew. So Entertaining.

So, I actually got to 80 mining. wtf, I hit a goal. haha.   Im just about 10K away from 81 fishing (just kinda bothering me so im finishing the level off).   I got to lvl 39 dung too. Kinda odd because it took half an hour (from lvl 35). Never really knew that if you were a high enough level to enter these "resource dungeons" that youd get a lot of experience just for ENTERING it the first time. I entered all the dungeons I had the level for, and it got me 4 lvls and im only 1K from 40 haha. Perhaps after the fishing I will go finish off the dung level as well.   And finally, I am about 107K from 84 wcing. I think for my initial monthly goals I am doing pretty well.   Got already one of my goals, half of another and then some. Now I just need to repair my dang abyss pouches so i can get that last RC lvl!

Update

Doing pretty well apparently...   Got to 67 RC pretty easily. 80 ATK as well. So already reached my goal there.   158K till 80 mining too. Im going to do Stealing Creation and earn a few Sacred Clay tools for that level. From what I can tell, each one gets you about 30K exp at my lvl. So it should be approximately... 6 or 7 sacred clay picks lol. Lets see how well that goes...   WCing is going well... Dragon Hatchet on ivy is fast exp during class or when im multitasking haha. Already at 83. 2 more levels for the month haha.   Dunno what else i'd do really... Jus kinda bored.

Im Back!

Im back for the time being. Took a long break, got 1 month's worth of membership back. I so far have gained 1 mining level as well as 1 wcing level.   My Goals this month: 80 mining (maybe more, but AT LEAST 80) 85WCing (i dont know if that would even be possible really, but I will try when i get my mining goals). 68 RC (doubtful, this is wishful thinking. 80 Attack (quite plausible)   Current levels in these skills: Mining: 79 WCing: 82 RC: 66 Attack: 79.   So these aren't huge goals. Just gotta get the motivation to get them.

Video Game Dream...

wow... so you know that you play too many video games when you are having a dream, and Paul Phoenix from Tekken shows up in your dream, sitting on a bench, saying how weak you are. Then he scoffs at you, and you challenge him to a fight after a short display, and you two fight and are matched tooth for tooth. Then he stops and says "nothin like a good workout! You're alright kid" and some random hot chick flocks from outa nowhere to you.   that was a WTF kinda dream....

Hmmm Long While..

Been a long while since I put a blog on here... haha. Well, things suck lately. Period. Im at home again, rather then a dorm.. having to commute to college, one thing I always HATED the idea of... I don't even have much to do here at home, sadly... I even resorted to using an old free account i used to have on runescape, and training that while earning some money, haha.   But Runescape has changed so much since I quit... The layout, the graphics, stuff was added, etc... Its just strange now... I long for the runescape where the wilderness was the only place to kill people. Where people used Forums to sell things unlike the new market now that even has a control on the max and min price. (True it got rid of scamming, but it also got rid of the guys who would pay outrageous prices just to get what they want, which was good for unrich people like me, haha). I long for a time in which summoning dictates part of your combat level. And what I hate the most, is the membership prices went up, lol.   But oh well. Ill find something else to pass the time... something a little more practical then runescape. Not saying others cant enjoy it, not saying its wrong to enjoy it. Just... its no longer for me...   *sigh* too much crap going on anyway to enjoy much of anything these days.   Let me say: Anyone whose younger then 18, realize you got hell to pay once you get into the real world, haha.

Looong While

its been quite a while since I have posted on here, but thats ok.   Ive been really busy. Im kind of upset too.   I got a D+ in history (it was an 8 week accelerated class with a... really nice, but strictly grading Dr. of a teacher...   But not only that My parents have deemed next semester too expensive to live in the dorms. I now have to stay at home and commute. The ONE thing that I did NOT want to do in college... It makes me mad because my mom is going to California this summer (we live on the EAST coast and shes flying). She says "oh only $500".. but you know how thats gonna end up... Shes going to go there, and pay $500 round trip, +food +SHOPPING which could bring it up over $800 easy. but my living cost is "too expensive" WITHOUT a meal plan of any sort, hardly any money needed for gas, and the fact that my scholarships pay for ALL of the tuition sides dorm cost. So my parents wont be paying JACK this coming semester, but its too expensive for me to live there... They wont even let me get loans so what the hell? I told them They better save for my study abroad semester in Japan (provided I get to) and now my mom is making that THE ENTIRE excuse like it was like that from the start.... grrr....   But, she did buy me a brand new bass guitar. Custom job, $70 at an auction, brand new. nice red glossy body, very light body surprisingly (yes it has the electronics, its not bare) and the neck has a slight angle as to let the strings hover about half an inch above the fretboard. Its strange, but I like it. Heres a pic:     still doesn't account for a semester of living back at home (probably 2 actually) Id gladly take it back for a refund If i got back into the dorms!

Woop!

hahaha, they said I wouldn't do it! They said i COULDNT do it! but I DID and Thus! Here it is:     Got my tattoo. Im not looking to get another.   Just to share some of the experience: It took about an hour, maybe a little less actually, it wasn't terribly large or detailed. It was only slightly painful. It hurt more AFTERWARDs then it did during. The needle really isn't that bad until it gets to the top near the bone. Right now (about 14 hours later) It burns and makes it hard for my left arm to move (stingssss haha). There is red in the image on my arm, that is BLOOD. It will come out in a couple days when it starts to heal... kinda sucks because it looks better that way. I dont plan on getting another tattoo.   And for those of you who think im a dumbbutt (well a dumbbutt specifically because of the tattoo i mean) Realize that this actually means something to me, just as well it is EASILY covered by a short sleeve tshirt so as not to hinder any job opportunities.

Wow Random God Of War

I watched that and thought it was funny as hell, haha (warning, some content is not suitable for parents being in the room, haha)   then I emailed the composer, Gerard Marino (the REAL composer for this song who actually did it for the game and soundtrack) and He said:   On Jan 28, 2009, at 10:25 PM, Dude wrote: " > > You probably have seen all the things circulating around online about the lyrics "Hold Devils Pot of Tea"   Yes, and the first time I found it I almost gave myself a hernia laughing. Especially the "Milkshake" part. Unfortunately, now I cant hear the song without hearing those lyrics.       > > But given that God of War is based on Greek/Roman mythology I would expect the lyrics to be in Latin.   They are in Greek, as the story is set there.       > My question to you is what the REAL lyrics for it are. I did some google searching and nowhere could I find the TRUE lyrics of this song.   Here they are, with translation:   THE END BEGINS   To Telos Arheezee! The End Begins!   To Telos Arheezee! The End Begins!   To Telos Arheezee! The End Begins!   To Telos Arheezee Torah! The End Begins Now!   repeat       Prodosia! Betrayal!   Threemos! Threemos! Rage! Rage!   To Telos Arheezee Torah!

The End Begins Now!   Thanks for your interest.   G"   That is the direct email that he responded to me with when i asked the REAL lyrics. Now look at the real ones and listen to it, and look at the funny ones... and tell me if your having the same problem I am... That the REAL lyrics cant be heard at all, and all you hear is "Hold Devil's Pot of tea Mulan!"

Grades And Quitting.

grades are starting to come in for my first semester classes... Well, i did alot better then I expected. The one class that worried me (Music appreciation) The original grade said 80 which is the lowest B... but on the site that we get the finalized grades, I got an A, so thats a 4.0 GPA wise on a college scale. Its awsome. I thought I got like a C.   Philosophy, what a trip. That class was so easy thanks to my Highschool math teacher who spent the bettter of 3 weeks teaching us material like that at the end of Finite Math. Never thought Id thank him, haha. I missed the exam day originally however... I misunderstood my teacher and thought he said the review session was that day. But since I did so well in class, he gave me the benefit of the doubt and let me take it. I did it in under an hour, when it was originally meant for 1 and a half. If I got a 0 on that final I would could have made a max of 65 on my final grade (not passing) [35% of the total]. Thank god he let me. I got a 93 without studying, and originally would have gotten an 89, but I talked to him alot and gave him reason to believe I deserved an A (not like outloud, but I guess thats what he thought because I check on the site for final grades, I got an A on that as well). So thats 2 classes with As for the final grade thus far... not bad considering the Music final I totally failed (67).   Im waiting on two more grades. University 101 (joke, i KNOW I got an A, the teachers liked me and I did the work I was supposed to) and English (I worked freakin hard on that one...)   The final exam for English was a portfolio of all our previous papers. We had 4 throughout the semester. We had all but the last one peer edited and then we turned in a SECOND draft to the professor. After that he gave his suggestions while still leaving it open ended in a way... and As the final we took those papers he looked over and revised them into a final copy. We stuck the second draft of all the papers in the folder, in front of the finalized drafts and he is to grade them. Im assuming the way he grades them is dependant on how well you improved and how much time you actually took to revise them. You were not required to revise A papers, I had only 1 of those. But I spent alot of time on the C+/B- paper I had and the rest of them I spent a relatively long amount of time on considering I never revise usually... And I talk to him too (it really DOES pay to have a good relationship with your teacher). I think I got an A... hopefully... He gave us this assignment on the last day that was a 1 page handwritten reason as to what grade we think we deserve and why. He said If we provide enough plausible evidence and say we got an A, we will get an A... I did that, and had the work to prove it, so im hoping for an A...   If I can manage to get all 4 As for this semester, I will have a 4.0 GPA for the first time in My history... woow.. BoBo? 4.0 GPA? WTF! Im lovin this college thing, same to less work, more GPA =P   Anyways... thats whats new schoolwise...   For those of you who dont know, (Considering im not a distinguised member I judge that to be alot of you), I am quitting runescape. I got very bored of it, and when I hit college I was completely unmotivated to play it. I had my Playstation 3 with me, and a broadband network that didn't give out on me constantly. So I played Call of Duty of Metal Gear most of the spare time I had. I had plenty of it, and the rest I spent trying to socialize with people I knew and maybe meet some people I didn't know. Overall, successful semester, and sad to say I already quit my membership (which ive been a member since it was $5 a month, so I will never have that price again..) and I shall be retiring as a runescape player.... R.I.P. Skullshogun... Combat 106... A total of 9.6M in GP, and TONs more in items. I am not dropping any of it or selling any of my items. Instead I find it better to keep my items, sell what I do NOT wish to keep (empty the bank a bit) and If I want to come back to Runescape someday, I shall have my stuff. Its for the best. I shall still be here on the forums, mainly reading blogs, but I shall occasionally peak over to other sections (probably not the runescape part since im behind the times).   LONG post, I know, but I felt like typing =p. Anyway, Goodby fellow runescapers.

Lmfao

HAHAHA! So i was surfing facebook and i come to see a notification of the senior trip that we went on. I found some pictures that I will laugh at forever. Me, and Shu, yes, Lilshu, in a canoe, attacking our principle with about 5 other people in crappy little plastic kayaks. The pictures are kind of distant, but one you can clearly see us forming an attack, and the other is just a clusterf*** of us just attacking him. It made me laugh SO hard to find this posted about 8 months after the fact, but I figured it would be worth posting anyway. hahaha. Have a good laugh. The two person craft, front without a shirt is me. The person in the back on the second pic is Shu. Ill never forget that.       In other news, I havent been posting in a while, but then again I havent been on the forums in a while at all... I dont know why, Ive been so bored I havent come on here even, haha. I have been playing Call of Duty World at War (badarse) and thats about it...   Christmas is coming... im kinda excited, I got invited by this girl to come over on christmas (her family wanted me to come...) tis a gal I like, and just as well she likes me, me thinks its a perfect opportunity to become "not single" haha. No more detail then that shall be given.   And For some reason I find myself truely wanting a motorcycle to pass the time... I want to ride one around not worrying about gas mileage because of the ridiculously high double digit gas mileage on them... (as well as dropping gas prices).   Finally, I am trying to learn this peice on a bass.. Its a VERY difficult piece. Baroque in its origins, it is a Bach piece entitled "Toccata"... Those who don't know it by name would know it when they heard it, and There are maybe 1 or... possibly 2 on these forums (lurkers who read my blog entries) who would know it... I found bass tabs for it. http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/j/joha..._fugue_btab.htm In that tab, I have gotten about as far as the first 3 lines of tab shown there.. Its obviously hard, and not the whole piece, but the only portions really suited to play on bass... Just as well, I found a few tweaks to make it slightly easier for me... (string change tweaks) and Ive been having fun just playing the first part I know... Now the problem is waiting for my fingers to heal again before attempting the BIG part... (holy crap)

Early Christmas Gift

so basically for christmas I asked for a txting phone because since I got to college ive been almost going over my txts.   so i went and got it today with the OK of my parents.   Its a Tmobile sidekick 2008. Its agreat phone, and I can only use it for txting. Its unlimited, I can use it for AIM, Yahoo, and MSN as well. And it has unlimited internet usage as well for facebook/myspace/google or w/e else I really want.   Its convenient to pay like $30 for that when my own phone service would be around the same JUST for unlimited txt with no email. So now I have 2 phones, one for calls, one for txts and messaging and whatnot. Im only planning on brining one around with me during the day at school though, the txting one because noone really ever calls me during the school day anyway.     I like it... It also doubles as an MP3 player (with a standard headphone jack) and has a 2MP camera, a good step up from my VGA camera on my other phone. Expandable memory, micro SD slot as well (which I have around 2 more lying about at home, 1gb and 2gb respectively).   Also has some cool games. Later im going to get Stret Fighter 2 for it (I love street fighter, lol)     In other news, Oreo Fudge Rings are good. try em.   I just got over being sick.   Call of Duty is still a beastly game (and now my dad whose been obsessing on it has a Golden Dragunov, yes he does infact spend that much time sniping and using no other weapons, haha)   and im still waiting for the 1.8inch enclosure for the old ipod's harddrive.

Gutted Ipod

Well peoplez. I had this old 4th generation iPod Photo that kept bricking itself. It would just freeze, still have some clicking noises for the click wheel for about a minute then just quit alltogether, screen frozen, light stuck in the on-mode, no sound at all. It did that one too many times. So i opened it, and gutted the iPod for fun. It was a 60GB too. fun fun.   So heres the results   1) The screen was broken (failed to keep it in tact...) 2) The circuitry is tiny (duh, its an MP3 player from Apple...) 3) The battery is the second largest thing in there, the biggest of course being the harddrive 4) the harddrive is freakin tiny, even for an iPod of the 4th generation (one of the fat ones) The thing is like 1/5 the size of my desktop computer's harddrive that is the same size. (coincidentally, Im going to attempt to hook it up as an "external" harddrive to that same computer. harddrive is expendable, haha. 5) the click wheel still clicks, so i kept it, along with the front and back faceplates for fun, mementos, haha.   UPDATE: upon researching the subject, I actually found a cheap way to make use of the harddrive. 60GB is a pretty decent amount... I searched google for the toshiba harddrives, found the product number and found the actual product online. It retails at around $200 new. However, Instead of doing that, I simply had to find out the size of the harddrive, which is 1.8' and then I found an external enclosure. It cost around $20, but when I get it, i'm going to wipe down the 2-3GB of random used space on that old ipod harddrive, and use it as a 60GB external harddrive. Nice eh? $20 gets me the case with the USB cord and everything, and itll plug and work just like a flash drive. a flash drive with a transfer rate of around 250MB/s or more, lol. convenient, I was just thinking that I needed an external...   I should buy more refurbished iPods cheap and gut them for harddrive... haha
