    My totally tubular new computer (that I might purchase, specs for review))

    Well, I was supposed to have bought this months ago, but have only now gotten around to it. I have put together a set of specs for the core components of the machine I am going to put together. This is actually the first computer I will have built. I would appreciate feedback on the core...

    Post A Desktop Screenshot (OR DIE!)

    If you do not forward this post to at least 20 people in the next 4 days, you will be stricken with cancer<img src=smilies/cry.gif> For some reason I'm really proud of my newest desktop screenshot. I'm running Xubunt and have been suckered into mostly Mac-ish themes. They just make me feel all...

    Network bullcockery

    For a long long time I have kept myself blissfully ignorant of the inner-wheelings and dealings of networks and the Internet. I have touched on many different aspects of programming and computers, from low-level assembly to advanced high-level programming frameworks, databases, graphics...

    Jerk(off)

    For the past few months I feel like I've been turning into a bigger jerkoff online and in real life. It's like I feel the need to be a prick to everyone I meet and make sure they realize that I don't owe them anything. I don't know what's going on. Maybe it's some sort of extended teenage...

    I suck at chess

    It's very sad, but very true. I suck at chess. Lately I've taken to playing chess with some friends from school after and in between breaks for class. How incredibly dorky of me. Anyhow, I've been getting my ass thoroughly bashed in pretty much every game. I've gotten a little bit better, but I...

    Cooking websites...

    Well, I was just rummaging through the crap in our kitchen looking for something to cook as we're out of pre-made food and soups. Being the lazy jerk that I am, I thought it would be great if there was a website that has recipies catered to the ingrediants I have at hand. I select the...

    Do not pass POST, do not collect $200

    I had just recently installed a second hard drive (200 GB Western Digital) on my computer and had it up and running when I decided to install the newest version of Ubuntu. I had just set up the partions when I decided to let it install and went for a quick shave. When I got back it was on the...

    Sony jumps out of the fire and into the frying pan.

    ...or something like that. I've been trying to follow this whole Sony DRM situation and was suprised to see that one of the blogs I usually watch for FCEUXD SP updates was reporting on the whole fiasco. Actually, more than reporting, he was actively involved in the discovery process. (content...

    Recent romhacking ventures

    I've taken a break from my main romhacking undertakings to do some rather avante gard hacking side-projects. This is something that is really close to my heart and expresses a lot about my inner self. I really hope you all enjoy it as much as I enjoyed creating it. (as an side, I have nicknamed...

    yah..

    Ugh. Today is totally lame and it's barely started. I just got a phone call from my father today that "my" car is going to be turned over into my name. My dad helped buy my first car last year, put it in his own name and just left the payments to me. The quick of the backstory is that my parents...

    So I was reading Popular Science...

    ...because I'm a fucking loser, and I came across this page with medical technology headlines. The page is called, "A Toast to the Bionic Man", and features a large picture of a man with two prosthetics hooked up to some wires, holding a wine glass in his left artifical hand. I read the artical...
