So the other day my brother killed his laptop when he spilled water on it and couldn't get it to turn on since. And just a few days before when I was trying to see if my laptop had any significant dust buildup, I noticed that I actually have slots for two hard drives, one being empty.
Free 150 gigabytes that actually go in my laptop!
Youth protection training (for scout leaders) used to just be a multiple choice test (clicky), now it's an estimated length of half hour video. The worst part? There's no volume control so I can't mute it while I continue watching Psych.
Edit: Oh shizzle, it's an interactive video and I missed the answer to a question while typing this up! :(
In a completely separate train of thought, I keep getting tempted to press my spacebar twice to put in a period. I don't even text that much. <_<
Good Lord, it shows a picture of a circle of Webelos surrounding a kid and beating him with their belts. :(
By the way, a committee member sent in my leadership registration and wrote that I'd have taken all these different courses by midnight today. Figures I'd have to do them when I'm almost done beating Portal on the computer. Just a thing I found in Portal.
"Wasn't it funny when we tried to kill you and you were all like 'NO WAY!'? That was great."
Oh, wouldn't it be horrible if someone came over when I was daydreaming, smirking, and saw the title page was "How to recognize a molester?"?
I need something to look forward to while I finish the projects for school that I still need to do. So anyone can suggest a program they'd like, and I'll see if I can make it, detailed explanations preferred. If they truly want it, I'll upload it and post the link.
From the advice I got from a kid in school, I went through the customizing your computer walkthrough at dell. But is it any good? I'll probably take a look at more though. Oh, and it's $1,759 which is probably pushing it, since our troop is going to Florida seabase next year, which may be kind of expensive, too.
XPS M1730 $2,159:
If a chore of mine is to load the dishwasher and someone doesn't clean something all the way so it's still dirty when it comes out of the dishwasher, would it be fair to say it's my job to clean someone else's dishes?
And while I was loading dishes, my sister puts my laptop on the floor and puts her stuff on the couch for the movie we're about to have on the projector. I finish the dishes, see my computer on the floor, and put it back on the couch and sit down. She starts yelling how rude I am because I sat back down where I was before I was doing the dishes.
I hate people who don't use simple logic, or those who accept only their own views. :D
When I get the incredible urge to write and I've got no writing talent. :glasses:
The time's midnight now, an hour and a half from when I created this entry. This is what I've managed to write, mingled with watching TV:
Half hour past that:
I love being able to fly through a honors chemistry core exam without knowing it was that day.
I love being able to remember school stuff without needing to study.
I love being able to finish homework in school to have afterschool to myself.
I love being able to spend my time talking to friends for hours.
I love reaping the benefits offered to me by scouting.
I love slaughtering an impromtu speech only needing to be three minutes long.
I love slaughtering a simple poetry reading with the poems in my hands.
I love catching crap from people complaining about the repercussions of their actions.
I love getting low grades from a sexist hypocritical teacher.
I love watching friends being hounded relentlessly for no reason other than they were there.
I love watching people skip by unbothered while others catch the hammer.
I love seeing stupid mistakes being made and never even bothered to be fixed.
I love knowing there are people out there who don't deserve to exist.
I love explaining the most simple logic to someone who seems incapable of conceiving they're wrong.
I love observing the ill effects of crappy advice given out by those who should know better.
I love when people hound me instead of my friends.
I'd like to ask the general public to give me some good requests for a program I can do in visual basic.
I guess to help you out with ideas, and to help me figure out what I actually know, I'll list what I've accumulated over the year:
If Then Statements
Saving Text Files
Opening Text Files
Date Time Pickers
Keep in mind I can easily figure out more objects, and may not have listed objects that are too obvious (like textboxes) or similar objects (like richtextboxes). I currently don't know how to do any sort of animation, besides loading a new picture each time a timer event fires/using a loop, which would be terrible and has no bearing on the finals. I can't do anything like a stat look-up feature, since I have no clue how.
Feel free to ask me, I probably missed some. And just let me know if you actually want me to upload the program for download.
Anyone else notice a change so that the Yahoo page's searchbox forces the browser's attention to it maybe a second after you navigate to the page, interrupting any typing you may be doing in the URL box? It annoys the hell out of me. Would anyone be amazing enough to be able to know what part of the code is doing that so I could possibly use a FF add-on to ignore it?
My brother is officially out of my hair concerning XBL. The other day he went and bought his own xbox and live subscription which means I can add people from here and avoid a "wtf who is this person, they from school?" moment. If you play and think yourself a friend, feel free to ask.
Well, after reading some stories in Hexias' Library, I've been inspired to attempt to write a story. I've got a vague idea on what I want to write but I would like some suggestions and characters.
I'd like to accept some suggestions for the remaining characters. Those would be the main characters throughout the entire story, but there's always room for some extras. I'd like to incorporate something to do with player mods since I believe it's an original idea at least. Currently, I'm trying to develope a plot and where I would like to go with it, but I have no clue right now. Anyone can PM me some ideas for a good plot that I can build on, I'd like it to be original.
(A) is for Allied and (F) is Foe.
Thanks to Rahoosh-

He's very cocky, angered quickly, can be trusted, and snobby. (maybe born into a rich family?)
This is what I have so far:
The rising sun shone through the sleeping boy’s bedroom’s dusty window. An oversized rat scurried along the old wooden floor, carrying stale food it had recently found lying underneath the old wooden desk, ridden with musty books of long forgotten lore. A small rumble shook through the cottage, disturbing the rat from its recently obtained feast. Movement arose from the bed located in the corner of the room. Movement arose from the bed located in the corner of the room. His mind still fuzzy from the night’s sleep, Synapsi matted down his hair and stepped out of his bed. The floor shook again, this time hard and disturbing enough to make Synapsi falter back toward his bed. The window alongside his bed fractured, hazing its clarity. Quickly putting on his armor, Synapsi made his way outside to see what was causing such havoc in Rimmington.
Dust rose from the barren streets, covering abandoned wagons, left for thieves to take whatever they please. There were countless people gathered in the town’s square, quite perturbed by the recent disturbance of their monotonous lives. Upon a long-forgotten fruit stand, sat a deathly black raven with its sinister wings lengthened. Many people surrounded the mysterious bird, whispering, wondering of its origin. Synapsi cautiously approached the eerie bird of darkness, aware of the situation’s danger.
Speaking to the crowd, the Raven declared, “Who forth shall present themselves to be your land’s representative?” Synapsi continued his way through the pressing crowd, eager to see who may volunteer. When no one stepped forward to the speaking bird, its patience shortened. Fearing danger to the well-being of Rimmington’s citizens, Synapsi took the step forward. “You have been chosen, your path will be riddled with difficulties,” the Raven glides off his perch on the stand and flies over Synapsi’s head. Crowd members double-take as Synapsi and the Raven disappear before their eyes.
There, I've put a spoiler on this little part of chapter one so those who wish, can wait for the full chapter before reading.
PS: I currently have poison ivy everywhere since of some community service. I'm not too allergic to it, but it's enough resistance to delay the itching. Right now, I'm literally squirming in my seat, it's like wanting to tear your skin off. I hate this, it comes in overwhelming waves. I do have some kind of cream stuff with, what seems, sand in it but I pretty much have none left. Hurray for me since most of the ivy is starting to show. I can't wait until this wears off, but at least I don't have it like my brother- right across the side of his face, but he doesn't itch...yet.
First official day of work...and was really bored. I got a job as summer help for a nearby city's public works so the first part of my day was clearing storm drains on the side of the road. Did about a dozen of those. Then we (a slightly older guy who works there drove) picked up some branches a guy cut down.
Other than those two activities, there was just driving. And more driving. It would have been bearable if I had known any of the guys there but I didn't.
My mom said if I get a job then I can get an iPhone. Better have not been a joke because this job doesn't really have any perks otherwise. Especially since I'll have to get up before 6am just to drive to my house and get to work on time.
Right when we get home my brother goes into an argument (already a bad sign) with my mom about religion. Basically, he bashed her because she believes in God. Then I cut in. Personally, I believe all my arguments were true and I hit him with everything I had. All he had were twisted words, fallacies, and picking on a mispronunciation/misused word. (Accidentally said 'queef' instead of...'quarrel'?) Every time I defeated an argument of his, he'd fall back to some ignorant statement, then when I'd say he was being ignorant, he'd say "Oh, so I'm ignorant because I don't believe in God?" He used that sentence over twenty times. Although, I did enjoy calling him out with my mom smiling in the other room, which he couldn't see. I'd like to say my brother's a good debater but he didn't have one argument in the whole half hour that was true. You (Sal's) should have seen me smiling when my brother started using our priest's health issues to bash a religion and saying he's still not ignorant.
Just because you are told to come to church doesn't mean our mom's forcing her religion on you. It means you're a minor and you're going to sit in a building that's not home and shut the hell up. Do you have anymore "arguments" you'd like to bring up because I'd really like to hear them.
Now I get to do homework then sit down to some Call of Duty 4 Live. Hell if my brother tries to play my 360. I've got a feeling my mom'll back me up for once on this 'intervention'.
It'd be nice if whoever happens to read this helps spread the support around the forum to fix the clan chat once and for all:
Credits go to Un0 for making the signature.
Just as a reminder that I shouldn't be worrying, that the last one was just an "expirement".
My watchtower caught three consecutive attempts to spy on me and I definitely had at least 700 swordsmen sitting in my town, all included in the defense plan. I might just build up a nice sized army to go ahead and experiment my 196k back. Anyone have a guess as to what kind of army a 44k rep guy could have? As of now I have 700 swordsmen, 200 archers, and 500 halberdiers with 500 more swordsmen, 500 more halberdiers, and 600 more archers on the way. Sufficient? :D
The question now is when to launch the attack. I think I'll upgrade my spy camp(3) a few more levels and I know his spy camp must be lower than my 9 watchtower.
Here's a new one for you >.< -->
I tried to get rid of a user's account for my computer, and it goes into a fatal error and memory dumps.
I tried to move program files for visual basic, and it does the same.
I had back-up files from the system recovery that I was deleting, and it errored the same.
Please help me. >.<
Today, after tech club at school, at about 5 PM, I walked through the rain to my car parked a few blocks away. As I jumped across the street, I saw a pamphlet under my windshield wipers. Stupid ads, I thought to myself. Not wanting to leave it on my window, I quickly open my door and grab it. Parking violation... within 15 feet of a fire hydrant. The damn thing has no signs by it saying not to, though the entire street had signs saying park here and to the right/left, or not at all. Not only was it not marked, it was a $50 ticket. <_< Now I'm sure I ranted about my stupid driver's ed teacher, and I highly doubt he ever taught that if it even exists.
Well...all I can say is...laughing gas is an interesting thing. I thought for a while that it wasn't going to work, I didn't really feel tired/sleepy/dizzy. I could tell that the somewhat strange doctor was only making small talk to see when I fell asleep, and it took a while. All I remember is thinking about how strange the smell of the gas was, and answering the questions. After I-don't-know-how-much-time, I woke up on some sort of bed-thing. A nurse came in to check up on me and then looked into my brother's room. All I heard was, "Hey, get some gauze in here, he's drooling!" "Hey, did you know your brother snores?" :lol: In the car, my brother asked me why I wasn't talking, as he said this, a blood drool went down his chin. A few hours later or so, I still can't feel my jaw. As it's starting to wear off, I think I can feel the pain starting to come in.
Yeah, I can start feeling it all now, this sucks. I took the pain medicine so don't be surprised if I go inactive for a few hours.
