Just thought I'd let you know.
Edit: Now yesterday was my birthday. For everybody that didn't say happy birthday: TOO LATE. NOW YOU HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL NEXT YEAR.
Why is everybody on this site suddenly a musician?
Posted on October 04, 2011 at 20:30
Seriously. First you were coders. Then you were nothing. Then you were artists, and now you are all musicians? How does a community drift towards such trends when each requires some amount of considerably varied skill? I think the answer is that few of you actually have skill in more than a single one of these areas. I won't name names, but it sure seems to me like many of you are pretty bad at art and/or music. You should probably stop spreading yourselves so thin and focus on fewer creative outlets. At this point it's just getting silly.
That's all I really had to say.

So my computer fucked up. It suddenly decided that it wasn't going to allow USB ports to function while Windows was running. They'd work in bios and whatnot, but would just cease functioning as soon as Windows started to load. I decided it was time for a fresh installation, but first I had to save my data.
I went to download Fedora and I had the choice between KDE and GNOME. In the past I much preferred GNOME, so I went with it. What the hell happened to GNOME? Its interface is terrible. It's so simplified, almost as though it was designed for my grandmother. Reminded me more of a smartphone than a PC. It was awful, I used to like GNOME, but this was near unusable.
So here I am using KDE. So much better. I don't get why GNOME is as it is. When did this happen? And why? :(

The only word that comes to mind with this one is "what."
Today is My Birthday

I'm 19. Yay me. I don't come onto this site much anymore. Mostly I just play Minecraft and idle in the IRC. I'm not digging the V3 look, but others have more than expressed my issues with it, so I will not go into details.
Anyway, yeah. Today is my birthday so wish me a happy one.
Also what is this "Related Posts" things?

I figured I'd throw my five caps in about the game as well. Basically, it's a fair bit better than FO3. A few things are worse, but it's better as a whole.
The first thing that struck me about the game was quite a negative: the voice acting. With a few exceptions here and there, most of the voice acting just feels dull. Or out of place. Or both. I recall this guy coming up to me, and saying in this calm, bored voice, "Please, my wife is trapped. Can you help her?" To which I responded "sure" and walked off. If he won't muster any enthusiasm, I sure as hell won't help her. Attitude is everything, dammit. But I digress. Many of the game's voices suffer from this. Beats overacting though I guess.
The second negative that immediately struck me was the weak beginning. Getting shot in the head but surviving thanks to some doctor performing brain surgery in his living room? I don't buy it. Although it could help to explain why these damn raiders can survive two shots to the head from a .44 Magnum... Naw, fuck that. Then on your way out the doctor is like "Here, have oodles of good stuff." "Why?" "Just because." Then he proceeds to disappear from the rest of the game. Lame.
However, the game more than makes up for these flaws. I think the biggest thing that New Vegas has over FO3 is just the number of things to do. Every decent-sized settlement has at least 5 side-quests. The Strip has oodles more. Compare this to FO3, where side-quests are few and far between. Not to mention the involved and nonlinear (and often confusing) main quest.
Companions are another nice addition. And before you start going "Ohhh, but Travis, Fallout 3 had companions! Nyeeeeeeeh" Shh no it didn't. Companions in FO3 were pretty much worthless. They'd run in shooting and get their asses handed to them. And when they weren't running in dying, they were making you wish they were dead. (See: Dogmeat's breathing.) Companions in New Vegas, on the other hand, actually function. They don't die, they rarely annoy, and they are often quite competent in combat. Oh, and they actually have personalities. They'll comment on situations, and they have a back story. And some are just hilarious, like Lily. No spoilers.
Gambling was boring and I'm bad at it. Next topic.
The weapons were great. So much variety compared to FO3. Many even looked cool and fairly realistic. Such as the 9mm pistol. What the hell is up with the FO3 10mm pistol? It doesn't even look like a pistol. More like a brick with a handle. Hate that thing. It appears in New Vegas as well, but it's fairly uncommon. Revolvers in the game were a little disappointing. After I saw how the 357 Magnum looked like a puny .22, I was hoping the .44 Magnum would be better. It wasn't, it looked about as big as a .32. I was hoping for some badass large-frame revolver like the Raging Bull, but nope. No 500 revolvers either, from what I've found thus far. =[
To sum it up, did a few things wrongly or badly, but overall a better game than FO3. This game actually holds up without mods, which is more than I can say about Bethesda-developed games. I can't wait to play it with mods.
I got a new button
Posted on October 17, 2010 at 22:02
Since this case is not native to my computer, I had to really makeshift the button to get it to work. I had it just dangling off the wires, but then it broke off of its solder because it was shitty. So I got a new button at Radioshack and soldered the wires to it and mounted it on my case. I now have a giant red button sticking awkwardly out of my case. Not to mention my missing front panel. Aesthetics are for losers.
Specs untrue. My computer is way worse than that =[.

I think the whole genre is silly as shit. So logically I'm going to write one. Here it goes.
My Erotica - Part 1
Ronnica was leaning on her car. She was waiting for her date, who was now 30 minutes late. She felt her legs getting sore, so she sat in the car. Her date had never been late before, so she didn't want to give up on him. She tried calling his cellphone, but it went straight to voice mail.
"Ugh," She mumbled to herself, "where on earth could he be?"
Just then, a gorgeous guy walked past. He had short curly hair, a square jaw, and an amazing body. Ronnica's vagina was instantly soaking wet. She climbed out of the car, and called to the guy. He turned around.
"What do you want?" He asked. His voice was deep and sexy.
"I think the question is, what do YOU want?" She replied, winking at him.
"I'm sorry?" He looked bewildered. She gave him another wink.
"Wanna get into the back seat of this car and see how fast she goes?"
"Um, I'm gay, sorry. I'll just be going now."
Ronnica watched, disappointed, as he left. He was just so hot.
"Oh well," she thought, "I guess I'll just wait for my date to arrive."
She turned around to go back to her car, but it was gone. She stared for a moment, confused. Somebody must have stolen it. Just then she heard a loud voice behind her.
"Ronnica," it said, "I have come for you."
She spun around. There was her car, standing upright. Its drive shaft was erect and pointing at her. It must have been 14 feet long.
"What.... You're my car..." she stammered.
"Yes. I am your car. It is time for you to make my babies."
It grabbed her, twisted her around, and pulled off her pants.......
Edit: Oh yeah and it's sorta based on a true story.
My Erotica - Part 2
Ronnica, thinking quickly, pulled out her rape whistle and blew it with all her might. Almost instantly, Ronnica's original thing that she was gonna blow with all her might showed up. Her boyfriend.
It was a fight to the death. Ronnica's boyfriend took out his Pistol-Blaster 9000 and used his un-natural trigger finger and fired. Unfortunately, his accuracy was on the low side, missing every shot. His turn was over.
It was the car's turn. It used it's drive shaft to smack Ronnica's boyfriend in the face, and then it kicked him in the weak spot. His vagina. (Ouch.)
Ronnica's boyfriend hasn't given up yet. He took off his shirt, to reveal a penis in the middle of his chest. It was 20 feet long, and was hard as a diamond. He did a little shimmy, knocking the hunk of metal upside down. The lights turned off, and the drive shaft shrunk back to normal size. Ronnica's boyfriend wins!
Ronnica ran up to her boyfriend and hugged him. And then they walked off in happiness.
But just behind them, the car's lights turned back on.
My Erotica - Part 3
The car became conscious and saw Ronnica and her boyfriend walking away. He lugged himself into car position, feeling very ashamed. He was sitting there for no more than a minute before a police car showed up.
"Mr. Car," The police car said, "You are under arrest for attempted rape of a human."
Mr. Car turned on his engine. He was a faster model than the police car, he could totally outrun them. In a flash he headed towards the the street, just to be cut off by police cars at the head of the parking lot. He skidded to a halt.
"Dammit!" He exclaimed.
"That's it sir, now you are guilty of resisting arrest. Come quietly or I'll see you end up on the side of the road in the middle of Cowboyland with a stolen engine, and three bashed out windows."
Mr. Car came quietly. Two weeks later, he was in the impound. It was a particularly large impound, Mr. Car was scared. He saw two large black semi trucks driving towards him. One had mudflaps that said "Mom" on them, the other's said "Bubba."
"Oh I see we got ourselves some fresh steel." Bubba said.
"We like love steel, don't we." The other one said. Mr. Car could see his drive shaft becoming erect. "If you don't struggle, we'll make this as painless as possible...."

My name is Travis, and I am an internet addict.
No? Okay fine. Basically when I got my internet taken away, I took an old shitty wireless adapter I had and shoved it in the side of a can and pointed it in the general direction of the wireless network. Lo and behold, it worked. Barely any signal and shit reliability, but hey, internets. This morning I couldn't get connected with only my can, so I modified it. Yay!
Edit: I tweaked it a bit and managed to get TWO WHOLE BARS. OMG.
