For my next paper for composition, I'm making the topic on jay walking, and how to fix it. The paper is a proposal paper, we state a problem, and come up with a solution. Of course, like most, if not all papers, it requires research. The problem is finding "scholarly sources" on Jay walking. The reason I chose jaywalking is because in the last year, I know 2 people, who went have gone to jail, for hitting a jaywalker (on accident of course). And even though I live in a very small town, I see jaywalkers every morning. a couple times, I nearly hit them, because they came out of nowhere (they were standing between 2 parked cars, and decided to run out without looking. It just gets annoying, when they could be more careful. I mean, seriously, there is a walkway not even 300 feet away.
Also still looking for a good digital camera, for $100-170. I want a new, not used, camera. Also looking for information on HD PVR.
Well, today I went into work, from 10 am to 2 pm. I forgot to clock in, so I clocked in 10 minutes late. When I got there, I was going to talk to my manager, because I have been thinking of getting another job, and quitting my current one. There are times when my managers, or even co-workers, will treat me like crap, and disrespect me, and I have been getting crappy hours (4-7 hours a week) But anyways, I ended up leaving an hour late. I decided not to talk to my manager yet. And as I was leaving, I was told to look at the schedule. Turns out they fired me. So now I am looking for another job. Just kidding. :P The schedule had been changed, and now I am working 8 hours tomorrow, so 12 hours this week. Kinda decent, especially since I have college on top of that.
Hard part: I have a ton of homework to do..literally: here is my list:
6 pages (2 2 page papers, and 2 pages left to type on a late composition assignment, and a psychology paper (no length requirement)
late illustrator, web design, and indesign assignments
Illustrator, and indesign assignment for this week
Web design final project.
and I still have an ad to recreate for indesign. I have very little time to work on this tomorrow..so..need to do all this on sunday and monday. :o
So my laptop has still been running slow. Defragging it did little to no help at all. I have scanned for viruses and found nothing. And this weekend, I was reminded of something. There are times when my laptop is really hot, specifically on the left side where the hot air blows out. Sometimes hot enough to burn me if I hold my hand/finger there for a couple seconds. So I was wondering if it is possible for the heat to have damaged something inside. Or if it could be due to the laptop being over used, because I practically use it 12/7. (from when I get home from college, until I go to bed, so a good 7-12 hours a day.
I am thinking about sending my laptop back to Toshiba, and seeing if they can fix it, or possibly exchange it, because I have had my eye on this laptop. I would pay the difference of course. I am also wondering if they would use my current hard drive in my laptop, in place of one of the 500gb hard drives.
I am looking at getting a new Digital Camera. I currently have 2 cameras, an Olympus FE-370 which is crap, the quality sucks, and company won't fix it, they just took my money to do nothing. This is the one I want to replace. I am looking for a camera, around $100-150 , I don't want it to be bulky, like a camcorder, or a professional camera. I just want a decent-good camera meant for every day use (not literally) that is small and will fit in my pocket. I do not want an Olympus. Atm I am specifically looking at Nikon or Canon, but leading towards Canon, because those cameras seem to have better reviews. Any personal experiences/suggestions are appreciated.
This summer my family is going across the country. We are flying on a plane, on Spirit Airways, in the USA of course, and my parents have brought up the possibility that our iPod Touches won't be allowed on the plane. My dad and I want to bring our iPods on the plane so we have something to do (we will have airplane mode on of course), but I am really worried, so I want to be sure they won't confiscate it, or deny our flight because of it. (I have never rode a plane before, except for 5 years ago, but I didn't have any iPod back then, and didn't bother with my mp3 player.
I was also looking into getting an HD PVR. Does anybody have experience with these? I heard they can record games, and stuff on TV in HD, and was wondering if that is true. Also would composite or component cables be better? And I see all sorts of guides on how to set it up, but looking for the right one, as each one I have seen is different.
Wow, this was a long blog. I would have put this in the tech support, but I have been making alot of topics there, and want to post in my blog.
Well, the final project for my HTML class is coming up. The project is for us to design a site, on the topic we choose. I was planning on doing it on energy drinks, more specifically Rip It, if I could, because I know abit, and am interested in energy drinks. but I wasn't able to come up with what I would use a table for, for an energy drink site, since a table is required. So now I am thinking of doing the site on a woodshop and minimall, owned by my dad's friend. However, again, the problem of what I would do for the table pops up.
So, thoughts? Any ideas for the tables?
Been busy this weekend. Now have like 10 hours, to adjust my psychology paper on Piaget, to include a Thesis, and an experimentation.
I have some files to create in Adobe Illustrator, make an ad in InDesign, type a 2 page paper on Copyright, and think of a subject for my next Composition paper and order some books on it.
This summer, my family will be going on vacation to the Grand Canyon (our first time being there). We will have an approximate 4 hour plane ride, and my parents seemed to have heard that iPods/mp3 players aren't allowed, and that the airport will confiscate them. I doubt this, but want to make sure. Anybody know?
RS: just relaxing, talking to some old friends
irl: catching up and getting ahead in homework...or trying to anyways
But my mouse has been acting strange lately. While scrolling down, it often scrolls up every now and then, like I will be scrolling down a page, then it jumps back up a bit, before scrolling back down. It's getting annoying, and so far, seems to only happen with my wireless mouse, and now my mousepad, but I hate the mousepad.
And found I had a message on Sal's. The message was from the Santafish, and it appears to have been automated. :P It was telling me Happy Anniversary because I have been a member of Sal's for 4 years.I seriously thought it was longer than that lol :P
I have backed up my dvds to my laptop. They are DVDs that I purchase, and own. I have no intentions of distributing them, to anybody. I just wish to have them on my laptop incase the original breaks, as well as to have my "dvd library" anywhere I got with my laptop. Literally all I want to do is store the dvds on my laptop, and watch them at leisure. Nothing else. Not giving it to anybody, not selling it, not trying to take credit for it, etc. I want to make sure, so if I need to, I can delete them.
Tbh, I don't see why it would be illegal.
So I was working on my HTML homework (which is really driving me crazy).
Then, in order, about 10 minutes apart from each other, until number 4, then after that, around 5 minutes apart:
1. I get ticked off at the assignment
2. I find the code I was looking for, or well, something similar, in a nother file
3. I get stuck again, so ask friends for help
4. realize I had 15 minutes left to complete the assignment
5. Realize I was doing the wrong assignment
6. with a couple minutes remaining to submit the assignment, I realize, we had started the assignment in class, and were close to finishing it.
7. Found the right files , that we did in class, looked at the time. 1 minute after the assignment was due.
I got an extension on my psychology paper. However, I am looking for some good sources, that link sleeping disorders/lack of sleep to behavior, and mood problems. I found a couple sources, but none that are really good. By good sources, I mean sources that you can trust, and are college level sources, meaning not just anybody can post/edit information. Must have post info, like date, author, etc.
I find it interesting actually. But I hate it! it's boring, only lectures, practically only quizzes and test. As it is, I am up at 2:30 in the morning, with a Psych paper due in 12 hours, that I haven't even started yet. On top of that, the professor didn't give us any page requirements, or really any information other than a rubric, which contains basic stuff; shows info, shows topic, grammar, etc.
A low level player in Fally asked me how I got Runite Ore. I said, "I mined it." He said, "oh", and equipped a pick, and ran towards the mining guild. 15 minutes later, he came back asking how I managed to mine the Runite Ore. I told him, "I have 85 mining, all I had to do was click on the rocks." He said, "but it is so crowded. What is the chance of getting that Runite Ore from a Runite Ore rock?" I replied, "very high if you're lucky, and find a world with ore in the rocks." So then he asked, "why do you get that Runite Ore from the rocks? It's weird." I said, " You always get Runite Ore from rocks, as long as nobody else gets it, thats always how the game has been." He said, "really? I don't remember them being here before." And then he walked off.
Now I am 19
So tonight, my family is going out to eat, to celebrate. The hard part is choosing where to eat. I tried deciding by thinking of what I would get at the restaurant, but that only made it harder
Texas Roadhouse: I would get either a salad entree, or 1 of their burgers and a side salad.
Buffalo Wild Wings: not sure, maybe a chicken wrap.
Olive Garden: definately the endless soup and salad, or w/e its called.
Edit: The poll is meant to be where you would choose, of the 3.
My friends showed me RockMelt a couple weeks ago, and I decided to use it. I have heard of it, and knew what it was, but finally decided to get it, but was wondering if it is safe. I know it is basically the same as Chrome, as it uses Chromium, but did Google make RockMelt? Is it safe to use RockMelt for my stuff; I mean, can I trust it not to steal my passwords and stuff?

Sweet. I just blogged Mr FANGs post on the switch, with just 1 button :o And, at Mr. FANG: Lmao, when the site pulled up, before I looked at the URL I was like "Oh "crap", I clicked an add". I actually said that out line, and everybody in my lab at college looked at me.
A girl that lives 20 minutes from me got stabbed to death. That kind of thing isn't common around here. I didn't personally know her, but a bunch of my friends/family did. It sounds like she was a great person. Anyways, the disgusting part, other than being stabbed to death, atm, it seems her fiancee did it. He even admitted to it :o
(My classes already started. just listing some of them however.)
So, I'm taking a class on web page developing, using HTML. Any advice?
I'm also taking a class on InDesign CS5, as well as Psychology. Also looking for advice on those classes. Especially Psychology. I have heard it is boring. Thoughts?
Atm, I have to type a 2 page (single spaced) report of the W3C.
So I have ran into annoying videos, that are in MKV format. For the past couple months I have been searching how to convert into other video formats, without success. Most of the programs didn't work. Finally, last night, my friend, who I asked before, and said he didn't know, told me it was obvious. Just use HandBrake. He said he has known that for a long time now, at least a year. Thanks.
Now my problem is, I can't seem to format the mp4 file, which was converted from MKV, to play on my tv. I looked at the manual that came with our tv, and was unable to find it.
After I got hacked, I emailed Jagex, explaining how I got hacked. I just checked my email, and while I can not divulge the contents, it did prove that Jagex DOES read our emails regarding accounts. They do care However, they said they will be unable to return my items :mad: :P :mad: :P :cry: :cry:
