King of Bandits

Tonight, aside from posting the promised Caution at a time that is dubious to be called Saturday, I was victorious. Booyaka.

Every Saturday night is poker night. No limit Texas hold'em. No money is actually won or lost because we're college students. We don't have money. When we do, we need it for food. So, pansy poker it is.

For every person you knock out, you get five points. For every person you survive, you get five points. When it gets down to one on one, the kill is worth ten points. Blinds double as more people are pushed out. Award bracelets are granted for winning tables and having the most points for the night.

Tonight, I won both games, eliminating 8 people (including one on one). I am the first person to monopolize all the bracelets for a night. I now have three white bracelets (tables won) and one black (most points for a night).


Caution: Earphone

CAUTION: All civilians should be aware of the hazards presented by Earphones. Failure to do so can result in deafness, ornery behavior, a severe lack of hair, aging, and "Young Whippersnappers".

In the event you find another civilian unaware of the situations in the depicted image, inform them how in your day such dangerous devices didn't exist, and how grateful you were regardless.


Slowing Down

You may or may not have noticed, but the rate of updates here has been similar to the rate at which a groups of friends can peel me away from a technological interface. There are a number of good reasons for this, all of which cover up the fact that I'm too lazy to bother with this for five minutes.

I aim to post here somewhat more frequently, but between everything that is already distracting me from this (things both good and otherwise) and other upcoming events (such as my birthday) don't expect too much.

And now, a few random things.

I visited Jo and Ste again this weekend. We rocked the house.

In addition to previously listed birthday wishes, a new mousepad recently came to my attention as a good one.

A dear friend finally found that quote I was looking for so I could add it to my quote file. Booyaka!

There will likely be another edition of Caution: Something this weekend.




My apologies for the long delay in updating, I've had a genuinely grotesque number of other things going on that have distracted me from the supremely important task of updating a blog.

So, here's a general update of everything going on in my life.

-Python and Pygame are being installed on Raijin for the sake of programming for my project, Codename: Vect0r. Dr. Chase directed me to a website detailing the history of the game, Space War, which Vect0r is based off of. I had previously been unable to remember the name of the game myself. Interestingly enough, Dr. Chase was at MIT and was able to play the original when it was made there on those super building sized computers.

-I've been addicted to a custom WarCraft III map based on the anime Naruto. My roommates and I enjoy playing it, and I've proven to be quite excellent at taking hard to play characters and kicking butt with them. One particular character is actually a pair of them, Fuujin and Raijin, and they are my "So, did you have a side of death with that order of pain?" character.

-In World of Warcraft my hunter remains at level 31. My paladin, has increased to level 24. My warlock is level 16 and has passed the 100 mark in both tailoring and enchanting skills. My warrior is now level 20, and will be dual wielding like mad shortly. My priest hasn't been played too much (my brother was at a youth retreat and the priest is solely for play with him), but is level 9 going on 10.

-I've got a test on Tuesday I'm not worried about. I'll study anyway.

-I'm staying with my sister for the weekend. The original plan was for my sister and brother-in-law to drive down after my sister returned from work, arrive around 8pm, eat some pizza with me, and then we'd all come up. My bro changed the plans, picking me up earlier in the afternoon for the purpose of surprising my sister. She was already home when we returned. Steve had called her and given the excuse that they needed more milk (I drink a lot) and as such had gone out to the grocery store. I hid in the trunk, Steve went inside and went through the usual routine for leaving. Jocelyn came out, and Steve gave her an ice scraper to put into the trunk to make room for me. The trunk popped, Jocelyn opened it up, and I jumped up and yelled, "HASGH!" I wish I'd had a camera.

-Job hunting is going slowly, but surely. My resume is looking much better than it once was. Some refinements can still be made, but at this point the actual job hunting takes precedence. A great resume is nothing without a job to send it to.

-My birthday is coming up on the 23rd of March. The only thing I've so far alluded to desiring is the Settlers of Catan board game. Additional desires would be more RAM for Raijin (DDR400 PC3200, either 2x 256MB or 2x 512MB), a World of Warcraft Game Card, and something homemade. My biggest desire of all would be to spend time with family. Unfortunately, my birthday falls on a Thursday of all days. Blargh.

-I spent some time trying to find a quote I had submitted to Quotes R Us. It was a great quote from a great friend, and neither of us can remember what it was. B'oh.

-Updated my blog 0 times between the last update and this one.



Using the greatest of holy powers, summoning every last strength and skill I have, and falling on my knees before the Lord, I have done what must be done.

Raijin has been ressurrected.

Verily I now may begin the project which has long eluded me. Vector (name will possibly change) will be a triumph of triumphs!

I've looked up a few tips that will help prevent further problems. May Raijin reign supreme for years to come!



Life, don't talk to me about life.

I haven't been updating much despite the awesome class schedule I have had because I have been busy.

Busy buying books.
Busy paying for college.
Busy paying my credit card bill.
Busy doing homework.
Busy fixing a friends computer.
Busy watching my computer die, again.
Busy figuring out the problem with my computer.
Busy returning my stupid motherboard.
Busy ordering a new motherboard of a different type.
Busy drowning my woes in video games.
Busy not watching the super bowl.

Busy busy, no time for chat.
