Car Accident

Several of us were standing around a campfire and we heard the screech. This time a bang actually followed and it was nearby. We had to slip through some trees to get to the road but we saw that a car had swerved across the road and ran headfirst into a tree. Several of those in brighter hoodies redirected traffic and I jogged back to our car to get some water bottles. The driver was crying but she was only shaken up, not much in the way of injury besides what I assume to be airbag-burn/rash. Besides that, not a very eventful campout.   *crawls back to avoiding study packet

Ypt

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. <_<

Xbox

My sister just came to me and asked if she'd be able to play on her xbox with it on an angle. I think she heard the horror in my reply.

Class

Apparently I dismissed my alarm on my phone and fell back asleep. Class started an hour ago. Goddammit.

Pre-test

Another ten ems chapters to be tested on in an hour, I don't know which chapter would be considered the worst. Farming equipment had some pretty mangled limbs but there's also childbirth in all its placental glory (try slipping "bloody show" into your vocabularly) and musculoskeletal injuries had what looked like peeled arms.

Programming

I started reading through some C++ guides and I keep thinking "well, this is a lot more cryptic than visual basic". ^_^ I think I'm only capable of learning a programming language in class with my friends, otherwise too much goes over (or straight on through) my head.   Edit: Aaaand I've lost interest in learning it, I'd rather struggle through finding updated VB guides.

Spring Semester

Tuesday 8:30AM - 11AM (Hydraulics), 11:30 - 2PM (Occupational Safety), 2:30PM - 5PM (Building Construction II)   Wednesday 8:30AM - 11AM (Firefighter Life Safety), 11:30AM - 2PM (Fire Administrative Management)   I didn't have many options for some reason (the arson investigation and roadway extrication courses weren't loading ), literally all my available choices were Tuesday, Wednesday or online, and I'm not too keen on online classes.   If hydraulics and life safety don't sap up all my time, I might just venture into programming again in my freetime.

Netflix

I just discovered Torchwood which has taken up a whole new stretch of time. First Doctor Who, then Breaking Bad, and with this I'll never get anything done.

Near Completion

I can now browse in peace, at least once I get a mouse that isn't so old and has a range of >3 feet. And I'm unsure of what to do with my screen resolution, it's kinda weird looking at my TV from three times the distance as before. Hmm...

Floor!

Picture. Next up is the threshold at the door, trim, then replacing outlets and switches. Wouldn't you know it, the floor took three hours and that white patch is where we put in a coax/Ethernet outlet but the kind my mom bought required a box be installed in the wall to mount to. Needless to say I'll be picking up a different kind (mounting directly onto drywall) for the two port Ethernet outlet that'll be going in next. Probably won't be any development today since my mom is off checking on a family whose (30 y/o?) son went missing this week.

Bedroom

Once upon a time I made an entry about cleaning out the bedroom to prepare for putting in wood flooring. Well, that was this weekend and we've put in the underlayment last night. Boy, was it a pain getting the underlayment. I've helped put in two other wood floors and I don't remember putting in thin wood, only foam. So I was in Menards looking for "foam underlayment". :( then when I found the right stuff, it turns out I grabbed sheets of wood from the wrong shelf and had to tell the cashier. Ignore the fact I grabbed 3/4" and the underlayment is 1/4". >.< it sucked because the sheets were 4'x8' and the shelf was well above my head.   I've drawn up an amateur blueprint/floorplan that I'll probably upload later. As of now, it looks like I'll be having my own room!

Kayaks

Kayaked 12 miles today with my troop, here's a few pictures:   Yes I'm wearing jeans, no I didn't expect a water fight. A nice effect the water had. And then some scenery.

I have recently become the proud owner of an immensely expanded .gif folder and I may or may not start replacing my responses with a semi-relevant .gif.

Couchside Critics

I've pretty much lost any will to post anything that might need higher level sources on Sal's. People talk about spontaneous combustion, I break down the science behind it exactly. I explain why the human body can't spontaneously combust and clothes/furniture can, in fact, be lit by a loose cigarette. I back up every claim I make by saying I'm actually passing on information that a federal fire investigator (ATF), my teacher, had taught in my class. The incorrect response to those credentials would be "lul, no it's unlikely". I don't really argue much anymore here, but if I'm posting then it's because I actually know something on the topic at hand. I don't like to post ignorantly so I don't.   Just a bit of my education: -Fire protection -Fire prevention -Building construction -Fire suppression systems -Fire apparatus -Fire tactics and strategies -Fire combustion and behavior -EMS first responder -Hazmat -Fire investigation     You know, quite possibly, I've had formal education on what I'm posting.

Sssss

I should've been reading for tomorrow but naturally I couldn't resist:

Class Today

The last of the chapter talked about motorcycle accidents. The teacher pulled up a picture on the projecter that showed a motorcycle and the class agreed the rider must have tried laying it out. The next picture comes up and we see two body bags, the class agrees there were two riders. The next picture shows the scene without the cover of body bags, we all see a young man torn in half. As in, the body above the waist including the obligatory spilling of the intestines was fifteen feet away from the rest where you could see the top of the coccyx.   The pictures were relevant to the class, by the way, it's not English.

9/11

I've been watching shows on 9/11 this evening and the last and I'm somewhat angry that I was at an age where I remember it happening but don't remember that much of it. I really wish I had been older.

This Morning

I had a dream in a dream about a dream. And it was all about what time I was going to wake up for class. :(

Hotkey Program

I tried, I really tried. But with a near success comes random key detection with no apparent cause. Project files are here, take a look at the code if you wish to help ease my pain. I could convert the program to only use one hotkey instead of offering the option of two if I picked through and added more hotkey choices but that'd be tomorrow's endeavor.   Two bugs I've seen: 1) When using shift as part of a hotkey combination, the first text sent is fine and dandy as you want it to be but the next hotkey (as long as you keep focus in the same window you're sending to) will be affected by a Shift press even if you are no longer pressing shift. 2) Maybe it's just because I'm using shift for so many hotkey choices, but the hotkey shift+sidemousebutton sometimes it drops in the text for another hotkey sidemousebutton as well.   There's a textbox on the GUI that shows which hotkey combos are pressed at any given time and it shows some pretty weird alternating hotkeys even though they'd be wrong.   There was going to be a video to go along with the download link that'd help demonstrate the bugs but when I looked at the seven minute recording, it was just black screen with no audio. Codec issues. Go figure. Anywho, I don't expect anyone to know what I'm talking about, let alone go through the code so I'll just set my chin on the heel of my hand and say, "Well, I was kinda close."

No Mouse

So instead of me still looking for a good wireless mouse with more buttons, I've decided to just program some macro/hotkey program myself. It'll take longer since my past programs folder has vanished but I think it'll work out.
