Title: Last thing you did
Post by: nintendodork on March 02, 2009, 01:53:04 AM
before posting this? (Exclude posting an earlier post on here, please)

EDIT** Also, don't post the last food you ate or the last thing you watched or anything else there's already a thread for, because then you are able to post twice.

Took a shower

I cut a bunch of skin off, warts growning under my skin.
Then I put this acid stuff on it, I accidently cut INTO the flesh in one part, instead of just cutting off deadish skin.

Yes, it is. It was one of the two equivalent expressions I had to write for some square divided into some other rectangles and squares... kind of hard to explain.

That doesn't always work, though. Argh they give you the length of the base then you have to find some other stuff and that Heron thing only works sometimes and argh.


Title: Re: What was the last thing you did
Post by: ericj on March 03, 2009, 01:19:09 AM
Some of what you learn is practical and applicable in life. Much of it is just busy-work bullshit with very little real world utility unless your career is in a very specific field, in which case you'll probably have programs and job aides to do much of it for you anyways. I had geometry, trigonometry, and calculus in high school and took up to calculus in college. I'd probably say geometry is the most useful.


Title: Re: What was the last thing you did
Post by: Rogles on March 03, 2009, 01:19:47 AM
Oh yeah we did stuff like that; the a^2+b^2=c^2 for right triangles. Yeah in math... B. My problem is I tend to mess up just one step, which in turn screws everything else up. I need to be more attentive. :/


Title: Re: What was the last thing you did
Post by: nintendodork on March 03, 2009, 01:20:58 AM
That's what happens to me.  I have a B- in algebra right now...I did bring it up from an F though...so that's a step.


Title: Re: What was the last thing you did
Post by: nurd on March 03, 2009, 01:22:15 AM
I have an F. I just retook a test, so it should go up.

Teacher is funny, but he talks to fast, erases right after he writese on the board, and stands in front of the writing while it is written. Also my notes are bad.


Title: Re: What was the last thing you did
Post by: Rogles on March 03, 2009, 01:28:04 AM
I used to have a C, but I really concentrated and managed to ace the test over exponential relationships, so now I've got a B. I want to get an A, but final grades for this semester are this friday...

Oh god I hate math, one of my major concerns about choosing a major was the least amount of math classes I had to take.


Title: Re: What was the last thing you did
Post by: Rogles on March 03, 2009, 01:38:07 AM
The problem is you can't really get involved with math like you can with, say, writing. Which is why I have an A in english. I can actually relate to the topic.


Title: Re: What was the last thing you did
Post by: nintendodork on March 03, 2009, 01:39:20 AM
Yeah, I go to our high school for my English class.  I excel in everything, pretty much, except algebra..with the exception of Social Studies sometimes...because I get bored very easily in that class.

Download a graphing calculator program for your PC. Plot some functions, mess with the variables and see how the graph changes, fiddle, tinker and experiment with the thing in general. That helped me out in trig & calc. It's a lot easier when you can visualize things in your mind, and you get to know how does every single thing in the equation/function/whatever interact with each other. Most people learn more by experimentation, which standard math courses usually won't provide, unless you do it yourself ;).

Our teacher grades tests really weird....We have like 80 problems on a test...I got like 30 right...and I got a 79%

Sounds like the grading system of the standardized college entrance test around here. You start with a fixed score, correct answers give you more points and incorrect ones punish you by subtracting them, and the score seems to grow in a non linear fashion. As far as I know it's been done that way to discourage answering at random (so that you only answer what you really know). Thing is, I discovered that you can get a higher than average score (pretty good in fact) by answering about half of the questions right and omitting the rest (basically make sure that every question that you answer is indeed right).

Given my electronics background, math (especially trig) has saved my @$$ a couple of times before too :P.

It's not even that.  I answered all the others wrong...(well, guessed) AND not everyone was graded the same way.


Title: Re: What was the last thing you did
Post by: 133MHz on March 03, 2009, 02:00:06 AM
See if you can get your hands on the grading equation used. Here it's like asking for the chemical formula of Coke, or Colonel Sander's secret flavor recipe of 11 herbs and spices, it's a really well guarded trade secret. In cram schools and such linear approximations of the formula are used, but these won't quite match IRL results and nobody outside the Ministry of Education really knows the real thing.

Sounds like your teacher is grading on a "curve." In the curve system, the highest score achieved by a student in the class sets the grading bar for the rest of the students. I can only assume that your whole class did quite poorly. :P

Well I don't teach anything, yet. I'm a college junior, history secondary education major. I want to teach high school history, but I also plan on getting certified to teach English as a foreign language. I want to live abroad and teach English, hopefully in Germany, Israel, or Japan.

Anyway, I normally tutor in history but I'll sort of take anything that comes my way in this program. I've tutored history, English, and even gave science a shot. Science didn't work out so well  :-[ .

Eric, what's your view on gas stations in Oregon that make employees fill the tank for you?


Bought a Dreamcast


Title: Re: What was the last thing you did
Post by: ericj on March 19, 2009, 11:03:16 PM
Funny that you know that dork.

It was strange when I first moved here from a state where you could pump your own gas, but now I like it and it seems normal and also provides jobs for people. As a plus, I don't have to smell like gas afterward.  ;)

What are your thoughts on it?


Title: Re: What was the last thing you did
Post by: nintendodork on March 19, 2009, 11:07:57 PM
I know this because I have a sister that lives in Oregon :)

Personally, I don't understand why they started doing it.  I heard it's because some guy was killed because he forgot to take the pump out of his car or something?  I'm not sure if that's true or not.  I couldn't imagine it pays anymore than minimum wage....since you only pump gas...

Plus, who says the people who pump it are the smartest people in the world? 

My dad went to Oregon to visit my sister once, stopped at a gas station, tried to pump his own gas..and almost got arrested for doing so ::)


Title: Re: What was the last thing you did
Post by: ericj on March 19, 2009, 11:19:00 PM
 :D I almost got arrested trying to pump my own gas when I first moved here, too! I really don't know why they started doing it in the first place, but anyways, a job is a job is a job in this economy.

What city does your sister live in?

It is illegal to pump your own gas here in New Jersey too. I'm always waiting for someone to show up and pump gas when I go to another state.


Title: Re: What was the last thing you did
Post by: UglyJoe on March 20, 2009, 01:08:21 AM
Yeah, can't pump your own gas in Jersey.  I went to college in New York and had to pump my own.  It's pretty nice not having to wait for some teenager at Wawa to get his butt over to your car and do his job. 


Title: Re: What was the last thing you did
Post by: son_ov_hades on March 20, 2009, 01:18:33 AM

Speaking of driving, my mom and I were about to go into the grocery store on our way home, and we saw this idiot in a truck (presumably drunk) skidding around the parking lot...he drove out of the lot, got onto the street, drove around the gas pumps across the street, came back into the parking lot....


and crashed into a brick building....

Last thing I did was come home from school...
And..on my way home, I saw something very...unusual

In this little town of mine, we have one street that has a few stores and restaurants..and on the side of the road...there was this extremely old, rusty car..and it had a piece of cardboard on top that said "eggs"

There were two guys selling eggs.  The people selling them didn't look...erm...respectable, which is pretty important when buying eggs.  If you drove on one side of them, you could clearly see the eggs were sitting in a bunch of cartons IN THE FRONT PASSENGER SEAT OF THEIR CAR with the window down..with no refrigeration whatsoever.  One man would sometimes point to the other because he only had one arm.  I think they may have been trying to use that as a scheme to get more money.  Anyway, that was my weird thing for today.  I wish some people would realize that there are proper ways to sell things..and proper ways to care for them.  I know they probably needed the money but I mean..come on.. ::) :-\

Wait, you went to a garage sale and got money? Or you hosted one? Either way, $300 isn't bad for a garage sale. :)

I hosted one, I probably should have said that in my original post :-[ But yeah, I sold a lot of my old toys and clothes from when I was younger.  It was quite nice to make the money.  I have no idea what I'll spend it on yet.

We had to run a mile twice each year in Middle School for no reason.

I rebelled by walking.

Average time was about 8 minutes for the people who ran. I got 23 minutes walking, with occasional sitting and walking in the opposite direction.

lol, we have to do that now...we ran a mile last time I had P.E, but I walked...I think my time was like 13 minutes or something.  I can't believe how serious some kids take it...the first kid to finish ran a mile in about 2 1/2 minutes

:O Nine for me. I just jogged the first quarter, and pretty much walked the rest.

Also, I posted some Twilight Fan fiction on Facebook. Tell me what you think!

1

Edward Cullen walked into the lair of the Vampire Pimps. "My name is Edward Cullen," he said. "and I am here to take it to the limit." The Vampire Pimps laughed. "Yeah, the limit! ...Of your abilities... Because... You'll be dead." Edward drew his triple samurai swords, one in each hand, and one clenched between his butt cheeks. Within seconds, all of the Vampire Pimps were dead. Edward ran over to Bella. "Oh Edward, you saved me!" she said. Edward simply smiled. Then knocked her out with a sledgehammer. Then plunged a crazy straw into her jugular and drank gleefully.
-------------------
2

Edward Cullen turned to face Darth Vader. "My name is Edward Cullen", he said, "And I am here to take it to the limit." Vader screamed in agony. "Yeah, the limit! ...Of your mother." "I DON'T HAVE A MOTHER, YOU WEENIS! I'M A VAMPIRE, LIKE LUKE!" "Enough," said Vader, drawing his lightsaber. Edward threw up. "You're just forgetting one thing," he said, extending his triple lightsaber claws on each hand. "Well, two. Er, three on each hand. So technically, six things." Edward fought Vader to a standstill before making him eat his own necktie. Edward slowly removed Vader's helmet, revealing the scarred, dessicated face below. "I...Love you." They kissed.

I had to run a mile the other day.  If we didn't finish in under 12 minutes, we'd have to do it again on Tuesday.  Thankfully, I passed with a time of 11:49.

I nearly collapsed out there.  I was not born to run.  :(

Post by: ericj on April 28, 2009, 10:21:59 PM
I run a little over a mile and a half to warm up before I hit the weights every time I workout (9+ MPH for 10 minutes), hit the weights for about 45-60 minutes, and then usually run another 10 minutes before I'm done. Y'all need to exercise more.  ;)

My friend came over to my house, got on the treadmill, set the speed to it's second highest setting, ran for about 11 minutes, and according to the treadmill, he ran 5 1/2 miles! :o  And he has asthma! :o :o

Ha! Yeah right! :D Nobody really does the amount he wants us to, but the fact that he expects us to do 100 is ridiculous. As far as the mile goes I usually get around 8:40 if I'm trying. Tomorrow will be a challenge now that I feel like crap, I think.

Umm, treadmills typically only go to about 12-13 mph, so even if he ran for a half-hour, he would only have gone at most 6.5 miles. He would have been going over 30 mph to get that distance in 11 minutes. Treadmill must have been off or something.  :P

Garry's Mod. It's basically a sandbox game based on Half-Life 2 that lets you do all sorts of crazy stuff. People use it all the time for machinima, and for a good reason. You can build pretty much anything, pose character models/faces, and mess with physics.

Did you give up trying to get everything working correctly or did you screw up something big time?


Title: Re: What was the last thing you did
Post by: UglyJoe on May 16, 2009, 05:57:19 PM
It screwed itself up, I was just trying to watch TV :P

It's either a bad hdd or just another asinine Linux issue that I've lost the patience to try and fix.  Mythbuntu has sucked from the beginning, so I'm gonna install some lite-weight distro and setup MythTV myself (assuming the hdd isn't bad).


Title: Re: What was the last thing you did
Post by: 133MHz on May 16, 2009, 08:01:39 PM
just another asinine Linux issue that I've lost the patience to try and fix.

If I had a dollar for every time that happened to me, I'd have enough money to buy a good lot of decent games.
I'm not bashing Linux, I think it's leaps and bounds better than before but on the desktop I'm always plagued by some obscure, utterly annoying and difficult to reproduce problem that ends up killing my patience and making me ditch it.

The day that XP stops fulfilling my needs and M$ forces me to "upgrade", I'll make the switch for once and for all.
Also by that time I hope that Linux will advance much more in reducing the annoying issues.

As for what was the last thing I did... I upgraded the firmware on one of those cheap Chinese MP4 players, edited the F/W file to fix a button mapping issue, killed it, recovered it in ADFU mode (short-circuiting memory pins yay!), killed it again, half-recovered it (black screen) and finally got it working decently. Damn you China!


Title: Re: What was the last thing you did

But you collect Famiclones, and the vast majority come from China.  Therefore, you shouldn't hate it.  [/smartass]


Title: Re: What was the last thing you did
Post by: 133MHz on May 16, 2009, 08:19:41 PM
I don't hate China, I just raise my fist in anger and then continue playing Super Mario 14 on my Twinhead PC-100, powered by a Minwa AC adapter :P.


Title: Re: What was the last thing you did
Post by: Blue Protoman on May 16, 2009, 10:47:19 PM
Hmm...  Do all Famiclones support the same Minwa adapters you have?


Title: Re: What was the last thing you did
Post by: 133MHz on May 16, 2009, 11:02:32 PM
Yup, they all work with 9V DC negative tip.


Title: Re: What was the last thing you did
Post by: Blue Protoman on May 16, 2009, 11:47:24 PM
Negative tip?  I know nothing about electricity.


Title: Re: What was the last thing you did
Post by: 133MHz on May 17, 2009, 12:33:36 AM
"Tip" refers to the center (inside) conductor of the adapter's plug (the part that goes into the Famicom). Therefore, negative tip means that the center conductor (the tip) carries the negative pole, and thus the outside conductor (the ring) carries the positive one. This is what you want for a Famicom and its clones, not the other way around.

The tip polarity is marked by a symbol printed on the AC adapter's label. The following pic (which I made in 2007) should tell you what to look for:
(http://www.famicomworld.com/forum/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=435.0;attach=100;image)
So in order to get a Famicom-compatible adapter, it must say Output: 9V DC (actually anything between 9 and 12 will work) and carry the Negative Tip symbol on its label.

Declared my MythTV box officially undead.

Pulled the box out of my entertainment center and booted up a GParted LiveCD.  My root partition had all kinds of issues.  GParted was able to fix that up in under a minute.  Rebooted and it's back up to its (lackluster) self.  I still want to scrap Mythbuntu and start over, but I just don't have the time to deal with it.

Opened a gift from my brother and his wife.  They couldn't be here last weekend, so I got it this weekend.  I got a card with $40 in it, and my brother's friend threw in the first issue of Nintendo Power!  If anyone knows, what's the difference between the Premiere Issue of NP, and the July/August 1988 issue?  The Premiere Issue is actually a little longer than the official first issue.  I have both, but I haven't actually done a side-by-side comparison, since it seems the difference would be something minor somewhere in the middle of the magazine.

...It better be a pretty damn big confinement space.  Cats aren't animals that should be confined in a small place.  Also, did he just all of a sudden start using the bathroom all over you're house?  You may wanna get him checked out at a vet if he keeps doing it.

Yikes! This better not be the beginning of the end. I feel that, too sometimes. I actually only play games when I'm testing new games I've purchase (and will put up for sale). I wish I had more time.

Also, the weapons have a level of duration so if I don't fix them then they'll break ohhh nooo! I love that stuff. I want to see if I take a break and play umjammer lammy again.

Deleted all my NES and SNES VC titles and installed FCE Ultra GX and Snes9x GX on my wii with the entire NES and SNES (U) goodrom romsets along with a bunch of translations for Japan only imports. This seems to make more sense since the wii only has a 512MB HDD. Thank goodness for the SD slot. :)

By the way, this was made possible with the awesome BannerBomb exploit. :) Everyone with a wii should update to 4.0U (assuming Canada and the USA) and check it out along with WiiGator's Backup Launcher 0.3 Gamma. It works wonders! Tutorials are all over the net. The package I downloaded was called "4.0softmod.rar" for those interested.

1. Turned 12 almost a month ago.

2. I'm a pacifist.  I don't like violence.

3. Actually, he spends the other half of his time playing 360.  Either way, he's addicted to Halo.  It's like the TV/monitor emits vaporized cocaine when he plays it.

4. No, he shouts/complains/insults/accuses hacking and generally makes an ass of himself whenever he plays online.

Those kind of things always sound like a good idea...then you end up on Judge Judy.  You're too young for that stuff...enjoy your personal space, you probably won't be as free as you are now for a very long time. This ended badly for almost all my friends who did.

Post by: MaxXimus on June 18, 2009, 12:51:04 AM
I've talked to her about it and made sure she understood that just because we are sharing a living space, it doesnt mean that we are tied together.

She isn't living at home right now. She has been living with her friend Chris since August, and she will talk to me sometimes, extremely frustrated because he doesn't do his share of the housework. When he does do something, it's done soo lazily that he should just have not even bother. An example of this is when, and I stress WHEN he does the dishes. He litterally just rinses them quickly and puts them down to dry. Pretty much every dish ends up needing to be re cleaned because there is food and grime still caked. She also feeds his cats, does their litter boxes, and cleans the apartment up. When ever she confronts him about it, he blows up at her. She tells me she feels trapped because she doesn't want to screw him over because he is her friend, but at the same time, she can't live under those conditions.

I guess another thing to note is that I am sleeping at her place usually 3 or so times a week, unless she comes to mine, in which case she sleeps here. We are already around each other a great deal of the time and have never really grown bored of each other.

It just happened that my uncle -- a restaurant owner -- was in contact with the national guardsmen and arranged it. There aren't many deployments that affect my small town, so I don't anticipate doing this again anytime soon, except maybe to welcome back the soldiers in a year.

Sounds like he needs to balance his life out. He's got a kid, so it's important for him to spend time with his family. When he's old and dying, he's not going to be wishing he played games and posted videos more often, he's going to wish he'd spent more time with the people in his life.

Watched a ritual where a bunch of Catholics burn a giant lucifer in effigy. They haven't called the wood and paper statue the devil for some decades now -- Old Man Quejas, which I think is Old Man Worries.

People call him Old Man Worries when they say it in English, but the Spanish-English dictionary I just used agrees with you - not that I doubted a native speaker. You know, maybe there's a difference between our use here in Nuevo Mexico and the standard use. I know we've got a lot of Spanish slang and Spanglish up here you don't find anywhere else. Who knows.

And in real life...

A crew from NHK (Japanese National TV) came to Shounenji temple (where I live) to take some shots and drink water from the well (it's quite famous here in the region).
I watched and had some talks with the camera guys and with Saho Harada (she's a famous synchronized swimmer).

This is the program:

They also took a photo with her, grandpa, me and my son, which they'll probably use on TV. I'll know on Monday when the show is aired.  :) I'll have to record that.

I love foreign Pokemon cards!  There used to be this one store a couple towns over that sold these big packs that had like..5 packs in them from the first few sets, each one from a different country.  I remember getting some from Germany, Japan, Mexico, and Taiwan, can't remember the others though.

Just killed a stinkbug.  I accidentally crushed it while trying to capture it in a soda bottle.  I had to run out to the dumpster quickly to get rid of it.  I think I managed to kill it before it set off its stink glands.  Crisis averted!

Say, manuel, I hear in Japan the vehicle regulations are ridiculous - like, they're so strict that people tend to not have cars over ten years old.  Otherwise, people would pull over to stop & look at them, intrigued. :P

It's not that bad, but there are indeed almost only new cars.

There are now a lot of tax incentives for buying new cars.

Daihatsu is pretty big in Japan. I think they are one of the biggest makers of "Kei" cars together with Suzuki and Mitsubishi.

A 16 or 25V cap may be hard to find at Radio Shack, but they should have 35V. I know they have the 7805 vr, I just bought one there. Check a couple different Radio Shacks or just order from their website.

100JPY = 1$

Title: Re: What was the last thing you did
Post by: manuel on October 12, 2009, 11:14:50 AM
Actually 100Yen is now 0.9$. The $ is pretty weak against the Yen at the moment.

MS-DOS4, just think about the Yen as a "cent". 100$ are 10000 cents, right? In Japan, there's just no bigger unit than Yen, which makes the prices seem bigger.
There's s sub-unit called "Sen" (100Sen = 1 Yen), but this is only very rarely used in the stock market and such.

5 barcode stickers, 4 of which had void stickers, a blockbuster label over the top and front of the cartridge, and a small, orange price sticker.  It mostly looks good now, except I couldn't rub off all of the void sticker of one of the barcodes.

Yup.  If you bought the Internet Channel when it costed 500 points (it's now free), Nintendo is allowing you to redeem one free NES game that is worth 500 points from the Wii Shop Channel.  Any game for regular sale is redeemable as long as it's only 500 points.

If you paid with a credit or debit card, a store can usually pull up your transaction and print you a new receipt.  ;)   I've had to do this before.

America's foundation??? Remember slavery, black rights, women's suffrage, the displacement and murder of Native Americans? How the only people who had power and decision-making rights were the wealthy, white landowners?

Maybe you think it happened exactly as in your HS History books. It didn't. People fought hard are still fighting for rights all over this country.

My laptop's PCMCIA slot failed Xbox 360 style (it desoldered itself right off the motherboard due to extreme heat), leaving me with no wireless Internet. I don't have a sufficiently fine tipped soldering iron nor the skills to resolder the slot by myself, so I invited a good friend of mine who makes a living of repairing gaming consoles (and thus can do very fine soldering) over for lunch and video games, with the intention of getting him to resolder the PCMCIA slot for me. He spent about an hour soldering those countless minuscule pins back into place, one by one. He did an excellent job, my wireless is back, we had a pretty good time and his godlike soldering skills even brought a broken Yoshi's Island cart that I had laying around for months back to life! This is what I call a good day :D.

Title: Re: What was the last thing you did
Post by: JC on November 19, 2009, 10:32:43 PM
I have no clue how it works. There's no flushing and no water at any point. Looks like any other urinal, only it's got this cap over the drain that's got a small space underneath for urine flow into the drain. I would guess it'd have to be more regularly scrubbed to clean it.

manuel, does that mean you took it out to the street and covered it with netting? I have a pic of your uncle, I think, doing that. One of my favorites from the trip.


Title: Re: What was the last thing you did
Post by: manuel on November 19, 2009, 11:21:44 PM
Yes.
He puts out the net on every garbage day at around 7 a.m., I guess. And then all people from the "han" (班:group in the neighborhood association) we belong to, puts their garbage bags in there.
The net is practically only there to prevent crows and dogs from picking the bags.

Could you send me the picture you spoke of? I'd like that.

Pokemon Rumble, from what I played, is a fun button-masher, but it's also the most expensive game available right now IIRC, and that's no good.  The demo is the full game, you just can't save your progress, so that's fine with me.  I'd rather have that over a $15 save feature. ::)  Hopefully they mark the price down sometime in the future.  I'll buy it when they mark it down to $10

It's really fun.  You need to like the songs on there in order to enjoy it though, which I do.  It's, like you've seen, Guitar Hero with a turntable.   The thing you're probably most confused on is the crossfader, which is pure hell, and was the hardest thing for me to get used to.  The long bars of arrows/symbols are scratch bars, where you have to scratch the record, and you use the crossfader when the colored bars on the highway slide to the left or right.

Just checked for more deals online...

What's expensive, UglyJoe?

$20 / 1gb is expensive.  They were going for literally half that price this time last year.  The best BF deal I saw this year was 4gb for $60 after MIR -- and that's just sad.

DDR3. Same happened with DDR1. And SDRAM. And EDO. And DIP. And core memory. And vacuum tubes. :P

True enough.  Although, I have enough SDRAM and EDO to survive a technological holocaust thanks to all the old computers I've replaced.

Well, it's kind of not as cool, because it's the same style that they had when they opened the Google building here in Council Bluffs, Iowa.  I still like it, but I would have preferred the original design.  The ones they gave out have corn and a bird, and a flower on it.  It's more Midwestern.

Played a few Famicom games while testing out the video capture on my new PC.  I caught this Highway Star glitch!  I happened to see it two or three times while playing and was hoping the video capture got it:

http://ximwix.net/storage/highwaystarglitch.jpg (http://ximwix.net/storage/highwaystarglitch.jpg)
http://ximwix.net/storage/highwaystarglitch2.jpg (http://ximwix.net/storage/highwaystarglitch2.jpg)

The more subtle parts of it are artifacts of the deinterlacing filters, but the obvious stuff is all glitch.  It's only there for one frame (~1/30 of a second).

Ouch, for what?

Tried getting this ram exchanged for (1) 512mb instead of (2) 256mb:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=250549142409&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT

I mean, why would you advertise it as 512 & sell two of them in the first place?  Someone's bound to make the mistake!

Wrapped presents.

I mean, why would you advertise it as 512 & sell two of them in the first place?

RAM is almost always sold in pairs.  There's no way he's gonna exchange it since it clearly says "512MB KIT (2 x 256MB)" :-\

Yeah, none of those were the final version, & it uploads from your computer.

Second, it was a one-shot one-kill moment.  It wasn't that I didn't have the file, something went wrong with the upload.

Edit: Just got a good deal on this:

Heh, I think one of them likes Star Trek quite a bit, but that's about as close as it gets. :D

I just saw an ad for The Simpsons season 20 on DVD.

What the hell?! >:(  Groening is in a bad position right now as far as I see it.  I think he's trying to milk more out of the 20th season then he should.  Fox is having an hour long special, which is hopefully worth watching.  The new episode I'm watching right now isn't really that great. :-\  Not to mention the obvious skipping of like 8 seasons!  I mean, yeah I'll still buy it, but I won't be happy about it. :P

I agree.  I didn't think the episode was that great, but the special was cool.  I just wish they would show (or release) the Tracy Ullman shorts on TV or on a DVD.  He knows that any long-time fan of the show would buy it in a heartbeat.

Replaced the display flex cable on my cell phone. The camera suddenly started to refresh very slowly, then the entire phone started acting sluggish, so I thought it was a software problem but no amount of factory reset was able to fix it, I was quite perplexed about the cause of the slowness, until the display turned into this:

Now that the hardware failure was pretty damn obvious, I bought a replacement flex cable for like $8 (yay for cheap Chinese knockoffs!) and after swapping the cables it's good as new! :D

I even measured them so this wouldn't happen.  I'll have to get them printed out again.  The cart labels came out fine, though

Edit: I checked the measurements again - they're good.  It had to be on their side.  Oh well, I'll try a PSD this time.

Pondered the term "chicken nuggets."


Title: Re: Last thing you did
Post by: nintendodork on January 28, 2010, 01:00:56 AM
I thought about that before too.  I guess the 'nuggets' part comes from various small 'nuggets' you get off the chicken, and you're not necessarily getting just the part you want. :o

Edit* Just ordered these two things from ThinkGeek (and got free two-day shipping thanks to the power of Google)

I think the word "nugget" is used because it's defined as "a small compact portion or unit." Chicken nuggets are small compact portions of chicken-like things. :P

On topic: watched the State of the Union address.

On my way back home from some errands I saw a lonely, beat up 14" box fan lying on a curb, waiting for the trash pickup to end its life. Since I don't have a cooling fan in my room and no money to buy one, I picked it up and brought it home.

It was really dirty and when I plugged it in it kinda worked. The blades turned very slowly and it made a horrible squeaking noise. Turns out it was just lack of lubrication. A couple drops of machine oil on the motor bearings brought it back to life!

After some cleaning with soap and water it turned out like this:

Wow, Exploding Power Transformers = Serious Business. Look up some videos on YouTube about the subject  ::) :P.

What you've experienced is known as a brownout. Unlike a regular blackout which is the total loss of power, in a brownout there's a substantial voltage drop but not a complete loss, the voltage may be even fluctuating wildly according to the city load.

I've experienced a couple of those myself, where the voltage drops below half the nominal value for an hour or more. Modern appliances with universal switching power supplies (i.e computers and the like) will happily keep chugging along with reduced line voltage (albeit with an increased current load), but bigger, linear loads like electric motors and lights will fail to start up. That explains why you were able to go online even if the lights didn't work. ;)

Me? Finally repaired my Ethernet cabling for good. It had several sections patched up with packing tape! :o


Title: Re: Last thing you did
Post by: Peps1ru1es92 on February 24, 2010, 03:05:34 AM
Woah. Going back 5-7 years, my grandparents had almost monthly blackouts, becuase of a bad transformer. The electric company kept fixing it and fixing it, but I guess the load was just too much. A neighbor saw sparks fly and some flame from it, but once they replaced it, all was well.

Also worth saying (I guess) During the Big Blackout in 2003, they and most of Buffalo didn't have power, but my block did. We used to live 3 blocks away. One street had power on only one side. Lots of extension cords going across there.  :P

Ive never experienced a brownout. For my power, its either on or off, no in-between.

Oh yeah, on topic, put some clothes in the dryer.

My cat that I've had ever since it was born died today.  Bootsie, if any of you remember the "Pets" thread.  She was, I believe 5, almost 6 years old.  She had leukemia, and we had her on medication ever since Christmas.  She was so weak last night and this morning, it was just awful.  I'm glad she's relieved of all of her pain now, though.  The last thing I did was went with my mom to put some of those fake flowers where we buried her. :'(

I might go to the World Nintendo Store with an extra 75 bucks! Also, my 75 year old grandfather was playing with a racquetball and I was amazed at how fast he was. Me and my brother played some NES games and I showed him my test carts which he showed very little interest in.

No, I didn't go and I really don't care about going to the World store after their sickening display of nothing. Instead I went to Play N Trade where the asshole manager didn't let me test the Game Boy Tetris carts to see if I could find the alternate music version. I got a few games though.

Well, not exactly. If you're an expert on video games who seeks solely to collect rare games based on slight variations, not including unnoticeable differences, you'll go to great lengths to obtain such items.

Exactly. Unless you're looking for top dollar stuff or if they see that you're planning to make a big purchase, they won't got out of their way to close a sale on bargain bin items. :P

Just was on the phone with Steve, the language department leader of the YMCA language school in Fukuyama and he wants me to fill in for a teacher, who's still abroad and won't be here for another few days. In about 2 hours I'll teach my first advanced-level English class (I have some little experience teaching kids, but nothing worth mentioning). Boy, am I nervous now.  :o
Wish me luck.

I was blow drying my hair after taking a shower as usual, when I heard a couple of explosions accompanied of a burning smell and the tripping of the main circuit breaker. After resetting the breaker, I couldn't find where did the problem come from.

Then I noticed that my clock radio wasn't working so I followed its power strip to the wall outlet. The outlet itself is tucked behind my bed's wood frame. This is what I found:

(http://img411.imageshack.us/img411/7628/dscn1716x.jpg)

The right angle plug adapter couldn't withstand the current draw of the several thousand Watt hair dryer for so long, getting so hot that it melted and fused itself with an ugly red bed sheet that was lying nearby.

(http://img297.imageshack.us/img297/2562/dscn1718s.jpg)

When it couldn't take it any more, the cable snapped off, causing a short circuit.

Finished making my Famicom to NES 4-player controller converter. 

I first tried it by wiring the controller ports directly without first cutting the existing PCB traces, but it wouldn't work correctly that way. After cutting the traces, it works great and includes NES Zapper support.  ;)

And of course, thanks for the schematic, 133MHz!  ;D

"Wii 2" that's the name they're going to give to the new Nintendo video game system? That's so silly.

I hope they won't call it "Wii 2" if so they should've stuck to:

NES
NES 2 (SNES)
NES 3 (N64)
NES 4 (NGC)
NES 5 (Wii)

And about DS 3D, better graphics I suppose it'll have, better than PSP's graphic would be nice, playing NSMB with great visual/details and gameplay on DS 3D would be sweet.


Title: Re: Last thing you did

It should be obvious they aren't going to stick with the name "Wii 2".  The Wii was the Revolution for the longest time.


Title: Re: Last thing you did
Post by: FamicomRetroGamer on April 18, 2010, 08:45:06 PM
Revolution sure was much better than Wii, but in order to revolutionize they'd had to make Wii superior in all ways that the other consoles couldn't reach to.

And Wii has been surpassed, but people will still buy.

Just the label or did you put the Zelda 3 board into one of those gyromite converts? If you did the gyromite thing, I'm defiantly going to have to do that. Care to spare a poor soul the image file so I can print that nice label you've made?


Title: Re: Last thing you did
Post by: Jedi QuestMaster on April 23, 2010, 04:49:17 PM
Yeah, I'll put the image on DeviantArt.

But I've got to warn you - the FC board (without a hole in the middle) + the converter inside won't allow the cartridge case to shut close.  I had to clip the plastic inside.

And what are you going to do with the manual & case?  Are you going to modify the case to hold an NES cart? :D

I decided to save mine for some FC game.


Title: Re: Last thing you did
Post by: MS-DOS4 on April 23, 2010, 05:25:44 PM
Hell, I'll drill holes in the case if I need too. Also sounds like it'll wobble like a mad man. Did you apply some hot glue? And I didn't think about modifying the case! Sounds like a good idea.

There are screws to hold the converter in place, so I use that.  Being a completist, I also used a back case that has the battery CAUTION label.

And is Bases Loaded 3 on NES better? ???

Fixed the FDS drive I got from Marlon.

To get it to work, I had to build a spacer/washer for the bottom of the drive pulley, reset the gear assembly correctly into place (this is why it was locking up before), solder the LED wires back onto the LED, clean the read head, and adjust the spindle head.

BTW what's your preferred method for dumping SNES games? Standard SNES game copier or do you have an IO-56 interface card? I've been thinking about getting my own IO-56 (or similar device) but I'd like to hear from someone who has actually used one.

IO-56. The rom dumps fine but one works properly on a real SNES. Emulators give graphic problems and not working menus.

Now: Traced some code in NES Tetris (Nintendo version) in about 20 minutes to get a working music modifier $06f5. Now I need to find the Title Screen Rom Address to re-enable the Title song that Nintendo disabled at the last minute. :(

Overwrote my XP Pro partition with Ubuntu. XP got itself a nasty virus which I couldn't (by couldn't, i mean was too lazy to spend hours trying to) kill. I do have an XP CD, and i'll likely install it by then end of the week, but I thought I'd give Linux a try.

Today must be "Fix old car audio crap" day. First, I repaired an old MTX electronic crossover I had in my closet by replacing a faulty metalized film cap and correcting a broken trace. Then I tested an old 1500 watt amp that's been in protect mode for about a year and ordered some new output transistors to finally get it working again. Not sure why it took me so long to get around to it.  ::)

You know how sometimes you have one or two bubbles left on a multiple choice test when they call time, you just scribble them in really fast as a guess just so you can fill it in?  Yeah.  Part that sucked was my instructor caught me on the first test but didn't dismiss me til after the second, which means I had to do the math part for no reason. >_>

Where do you normally get them from?  I don't remember where I got most of mine but I think one of the sites was <deleted by mod>.  You didn't used to have to register to download stuff but if that's not an issue for you I would recommend you try that.

Spent the majority of the day trying to rebuild my old laptop's battery. I shove it in, and NOTHING.

My theory is that the little circuit board is fried ( I saw it, or a battery make a spark, must've been it) and luckily I have another one, so tomorrow I'm gonna switch them out and see what happens.  :(

Update: Switched them out and still nothing. I guess that makes the last thing I did be get angry at my laptop battery.

Well, that was the reason we went, and I should've made my post clearer but I just now got home from Kansas City.  We left before noon on Saturday, stayed in a hotel overnight, and did some sightseeing, shopping, walking around, etc.

Actually, I just said that because I saw him on TV with a ventriloquist puppet; & it just seemed like the most typical performance: it was one-way where only the puppet was being funny, & insulting Jeff the whole time.

Most of his shows are probably not like that, though. :-\


Title: Re: Last thing you did
Post by: nintendodork on August 22, 2010, 11:56:34 PM
Well, he is a ventriloquist, but his show last night wasn't really just his puppets insulting him.  It was a back-and-forth thing, and there was a fairly big portion that was just him.

Post by: 133MHz on September 03, 2010, 07:40:15 PM
Well, when I was younger and my typing was hunt and peck style, my school had some of those keyboards and I absolutely hated them. Then I learned to touch type properly and I absolutely love them now. I can't imagine going back to a regular keyboard for more than a few moments using somebody else's computer. They're just that comfortable. If you can touch type, that is.

As an added bonus, the ergonomic keyboard and the mouse on the left hand side tend to keep other people away from my workstation. ::) :P

No, "Podunk" refers to a place "in the middle of nowhere" which fits in with the story about how a couple in the middle of nowhere America disappeared. Marysville and Spokane are both here, Union Stations are all over the US, but there's two in WA I think. There's a Youngtown in Seattle, but I seriously doubt it has anything to do with the real location. Reindeer could be referring to Mt. Rainier, and Ellay may refer to L.A. which is actually two states below WA.

It's a conspiracy.  ::) :P

Why do you need three phones? Are you a drug dealer?

Hehe 3 phones but one at a time. I first got a phone and my dad got an evo. He decided to give it to me, but he did not want to have my phone. So I got a blackberry curve and when the rebates come in we switch our phones.

Also, I crammed for my court proceedures class. Anyone else take any law related classes in high school or college? Because it is a LOT of work!

I took lots of Political Science courses in college, since that was one of my majors, and took several Constitutional Law classes. They involved a lot of memorization. logic, and application of principals and precedents. I really enjoyed them.  :)

I didn't ask if he wanted to sell it.  It just sorta came up in the middle of a conversation -- would have been weird to ask him.  He bought it for his son back when it was in stores.  He said he had it somewhere but probably didn't have the cart or the NES anymore.

One for me and one for my girl so I can a) play it without hassle and b) show her she can't play Chun Li as well as she thinks she can :)

Yes guys, 3D effect is awesome, on max it comes out of the screen about 4" I'd say and the backgrounds go back about 6-8".  It's really sharp too - videos on gamespot etc make it look blurry and fudged but it's much nicer than my PSP screen for example, much nicer.

I picked my guinea pig up from the vet after surgery. They had to amputate her entire right leg right up to the hip.  :(  She seems to be doing well, she's eating and moving around, which is way more than I'd be doing in the same situation.  They made her a collar to prevent her from messing with her stitches.

Thanks for the kind, understanding messages. Before this, it had been about 7 years since I lost a pet, and that was a cat that lived to be 17 y/o. I forgot how hard it is to lose a pet. Also, my condolences for the loss of your chinchilla, famiac. I considered getting chinchillas while I was deciding what kind of pet to get, but ultimately decided on guinea pigs.

I'm grateful that I have a lot of video & webcam footage of her, plus tons of photos. For those of you who don't know about it, I have a live guinea pig webcam site at www.happycavy.com (cavy is another name given to guinea pigs).  Feel free to check it out. And here's a post about Piglet's passing: www.happycavy.com/8un

that sucks to hear.  We've always had a guinea pig in the house, and I bought the latest one that is 3 years old.  The guinea pig and the dog are the same age and they always got along.  I used to put the guinea pig and the dog down for naps and it was funny.  They still get along to this day, funny how animals form these bonds when they are young.

Anyways, I just got up and walked to my high school and was apparently the only one to do so today...

The guinea pig and the dog are the same age and they always got along.  I used to put the guinea pig and the dog down for naps and it was funny.

An interesting side note about having guinea pigs with dogs is that dogs (and even cats and rabbits) may carry Bordetella, which can cause respiratory illness in your guinea pig. Ideally, they should not be housed in contact with guinea pigs. But, cavies at risk of exposure may be vaccinated twice yearly for Bordetella to prevent infection; the vaccine must be a killed product, as live vaccines may cause illness in cavies. Even if your dog isn't a carrier at this time, he may easily become infected with it. Just an FYI.  :)

2. some stupid  video about biology


Title: Re: Last thing you did
Post by: Cam3ron@FW on January 03, 2011, 09:57:56 PM
yeah, thanks eric.  I was aware of this a while ago and my guinea pig has been vaccinated with a few different shots in the past as well as that one since they did it for free back home.  This was about a year ago though and I'm not sure if shots are free here.

Only problem I have with my guinea pig is cleaning the cage here... It's a pain, it was a really good deal on the cage (60 bucks for a 4 floor cage) the only hard part is maneuvering the stupid cage out of a small closet, around a bookshelf and a dresser and a few other things.  I want to get something like what you have since I've seen those square connectible tiles cheap pretty much everywhere. (usually advertised as shelving but w/e lol)   Only problem is I wouldn't know what to use for a floor.

I just got off playing games with my brother.


Title: Re: Last thing you did
Post by: ericj on January 03, 2011, 10:08:59 PM
You can use coroplast (corrugated plastic) for the floor. It's the same stuff signs are made out of, and you can buy a 4' x 8' sheet of it for around $35 at Fast Signs or other signage stores. I just have mine made out of a sheet of that with plywood cut out for underneath it for stability (coroplast by itself isn't too strong) and it sits on top of more of the cubes, which double as storage areas for newspaper, food, hay, and towels. I use newspaper on top of the coroplast with a few towels and then fleece bought from a fabric store with some additional towels on top of it for the "bedding" area. I've gone through about 5 or 6 different cage configurations before settling on the current one you see pictured on the site. http://www.happycavy.com/where-we-live/

I said "cheaper" (comparative form).
25000 Japanese Yen are equivalent to 305 $ right now. 250 is pretty darn cheap compared to that.

And your notion of "cheap"/"expensive" will change once you have a regular job. Trust me.  ;)
When a new game console costs less than 1% of your annual income you don't see it as that expensive any more. At least that's how it is for me.

you shouldn't have said that. your monthly payment (after some calculation done) is cca 5x higher than a "higher-standard" payment over here. ;(


Title: Re: Last thing you did
Post by: manuel on January 20, 2011, 02:21:11 PM
Really?
I don't think so. I'm sure there's a mistake in your calculation.  :D I most certainly don't make 5 times as much as a higher-standard worker in Slovakia.
It's a bit off-topic, but what's the average salary in Slovakia?

edit: googled it: around 745 Euros per month. (proves my point! I make more than that, but not 5 times more.)

To get my mind off of the fact that a 14 year old is getting some and no me, I have invented a more universal Frogger play sound effects/music/voice code:

Frogger
Sound Modifier (David Lubar, the programmer for Frogger stole the sound code from Ren & Stimpy Buckaroo$, which was composed by Mark Van Hecke. You can even access what scrambled mess remains of the music with values 29-31, 16 and 39 are Ren & Stimpy's voices. Rest of the values are sound effects and end at 3D.)

I also read that someone found something weird like this in another game. Wonder how far this trend stems. Hmmm...


Title: Re: Last thing you did
Post by: UglyJoe on March 30, 2011, 03:00:09 AM
I also read that someone found something weird like this in another game. Wonder how far this trend stems. Hmmm...

Is there proof that he actually "stole" the code?  David Lubar did work on Buckaroo$ as well (and Mark Van Hecke was the Audio Director, who I doubt did any coding, according to Gamefaqs, at least).  I've heard of things like this happening (assets from other games appearing in unused portions of other games).  Most of the time, as far as I know, it's due to how memory allocation is handled on workstations that are used for more than one game. 

When you allocate memory, you don't have to clear the contents of the memory.  So if they were to allocate 16kb of memory (arbitrarily chosen amount) to hold some sound data, it's possible that the allocated memory could hold sound data (or other data) from another game, assuming that its assets were recently used on that workstation.  If they were to allocate 16kb and use only 10kb of that data, but burn all 16kb to the chip, then you'd have 6kb of assets from another game sitting on the chip.  Things like that happen, and it's not really stealing at all.


Title: Re: Last thing you did
Post by: nensondubois on March 30, 2011, 03:16:15 AM
Well, there where no other hints that he didn't steal the code. Mark van Hecke isn't credited anywhere in Frogger and Gamefaqs is unreliable sometimes and I didn't play through Buckaroos to completetion.

I know how games work... I'm a hacker; I deprogram games mostly for the sole purpose finding unused game content and to rip music (psst! see my GBS rips).

Ripped the audio for the songs on Between the Buried and Me's Colors Live DVD that weren't on the audio CD.  These guys sound great live. I recommend anyone who likes metal to take a listen.

^I saw them about a decade ago and they were really good, but I'm not much of a fan of their newer stuff. I'll take a look though.

Got off the phone with the Russian consulate in New York. Why do they make it so hard to visit their country?!?


Title: Re: Last thing you did
Post by: nintendodork on May 12, 2011, 11:57:03 PM
A decade ago could mean right from their very start with their self-titled album and The Silent Circus.  They've drifted away from grindcore since then and have more of a distinguished sound to them I think.  Even if someone doesn't like them, they can still appreciate them for how good they sound live compared to their studio recordings.  I would say if you didn't like Colors or anything after that, you still won't like them. Although I think Colors was their best work so far, and their Colors Live DVD makes me appreciate it even more.

Called the DMV since I just noticed today that my driver's license expired back in February of 2010.  :o

Since it's been over a year, I have to reapply, take the written test, and take the road driving test. All that even though I've been driving for over 16 years. Bureaucracy at it's finest. It would have been nice if they had mailed me an expiration notice. But, at least I didn't find out be being pulled over by a cop.

No psychological?

In Europe I've heard it's needed to also take now a psychological test just to be sure there's nothing mentally wrong with you (they don't want insane people driving).

Good thing vehicle type games always come with kilometres, never liked miles and never will.

Oh my god. I've bought four records so far. One record was an EP, which has seven songs on it, and that was $14, and then I bought two singles, one was $16, and the other was $8, and then I bought another record that had four singles on it, which set me back $15.  I've spent $53 on 13 songs. I literally have nothing else to spend money on.

Oh, also, I still need to get a modern turntable.  The one I bought from a junk shop for $3 just isn't cutting it.  Got any recommendations? I've been looking around and found what seems like an okay one for $70.  I don't really want to spend $100 on a turntable but I just might end up doing that.  I'd like one with USB connectivity, as well.

Yeah man I've bought over 100 records in the last two years or so and I routinely walk out of record stores without any money in my wallet. USB turntables are nice, but not really necessary IMO. Sony makes good turntables for cheap ~$90, they're obviously not high end but you'll get a pretty good sound and you won't kill your records playing them.

Came back from work, lulz, kinda funny saying this.

But my legs are really tired and need to sleep for 2-3 hours at least, 'cause it's every midnight to 8am now.

It's an easy job, it's like putting the mail into each exact box/place except it's with metals (sometimes heavy ones).

Got back from a wedding in Minneapolis.  The wedding was Saturday evening, so after the wedding (which was nondenominational, so it only took about 25 minutes, which was nice), my brother and I truly experienced a city without our parents for the first time, and I loved it. 

We saw a bunch of police cars zooming around blocks around where we were, and apparently they had used as many cars as they could, so they also got out the horses.  We saw a group of about 50 kids (who seemed like middle-schoolers) running up and down the streets, so we assumed it was them, but a cop we passed by told us it was a "flash mob of 800 kids" who they were after, and something about fucking up a hotel, which didn't really make much sense to us.  Either way, it was still awesome.  We walked around downtown and met some interesting people. I definitely want to live in a city when I'm older.

It must be so heartbreaking for those kids to see this tragedy.  I could hear them in the background.

What was the cause of the crash? And was that Jack “Flash” Mangan?


Title: Re: Last thing you did
Post by: petik1 on September 18, 2011, 01:26:40 AM
The news says he lost control, but I personally believe he misjudged his altitude (you can see in the video that he just didn't pull up in time.)

And yes, that was Jack Mangan.

I was translating a PDF file with the translation in a Word file, using an Excel file with reference vocabulary. I was always switching between those 3 files and it was so annoying...
So I went on amazon and ordered a 27 inch monitor. With that (I hope) I can display 3 files at once side by side, something that isn't feasible with the 15.6 inch monitor I'm using now.

Good times. :D

Wait, that was only two weeks ago for me. :o

Word of advice: Going to sleep at 9 PM & then waking up at 1 AM is not the same as going to sleep at midnight & waking up at 4! Trust me on this one. ;) Especially followed by staying up 23 hours afterward.

I've done both of these, and in my experience, I've found them to be close to the same, although I prefer the second one.  Once I'm up, I can stay up for however long I need.  I could easily pull another all-nighter tonight if I had to, but I don't, so I'm actually going to sleep. :P

The five hour energies have already worn off.  I didn't crash or anything, but I'm no longer jittery. I just feel like I do around this time every day now. :D

EDIT: I fell asleep at 7PM and now it's 2AM.  I was really tired but had work to do for finals...so I guess I'm going to be awake until I get it done (which will probably be when school starts. :P)

Bought a "junk" VCR from Hard-Off. It looked great cosmetically and came with the remote control and even the instruction manual. The description was: "Turns on. Plays tapes."
So I thought it's fine.
Turns out it's not fine. I think there's a problem with the motor. At first the tape didn't go in, only at the second try. It did play the tape without problems, but then it wouldn't eject the tape. Grinding noise, power goes off. :/
I got the tape out eventually, but those 1050 Yen it cost are gone.  :'( (Items labeled as "junk" can't be returned either...)
Another lesson learned...

Anybody interested in a junk Japanese VCR?  :-[

Turns out it's not fine. I think there's a problem with the motor. At first the tape didn't go in, only at the second try. It did play the tape without problems, but then it wouldn't eject the tape. Grinding noise, power goes off. :/
I got the tape out eventually, but those 1050 Yen it cost are gone.  :'( (Items labeled as "junk" can't be returned either...)
Another lesson learned...

Anybody interested in a junk Japanese VCR?  :-[

If the junk Japanese VCR is factory sealed and in mint condition. Then it would fit perfectly in my collection of mint condition factory sealed junk Japanese VCRs.

It was once factory sealed 15 years ago.
That's gotta count for something!  :crazy:

It's probably even repairable. If I was just not so clumsy and unknowing with electronics.  :'(

I just fixed the main problem my Sega Saturn was having... stole 5v from the power supply and spliced it in with the power connector for the CD drive. Somehow I was losing 2.5v on one of the pins and it just wasn't going to work like that. Now I just have to get a new laser and I'll be good to go.

Scratch that, I frankensteined a working drive. :D

Went to EVE Fanfest this weekend, and it was AWESOME!

Testplayed the Dust 514 Beta and saw some interesting lectures on what's coming up in CCP's future, like the World of Darkness MMO and some interesting changes being made to EVE Online.

Took some pictures if you're interested: http://www.flickr.com/photos/nordnordursins/sets/72157629646729543/ (http://www.flickr.com/photos/nordnordursins/sets/72157629646729543/)

How was Dust?  They've been forever making that.  I'm looking forward to playing it - albeit offline, ironically.

I like my shooters on a PC, but from what I could tell it's neither worse nor better than Modern Warfare and Battlefield when it comes to team base competitive shooters. But Dust 514 has so many more things than those two games, like total customisation of your character, earning and spending of currency, playing missions that MATTER and have an enormous influence on the game, leveling up skills (which btw will take 7 years to train all skills to max with the current skills available, so specialisation is key) and much much more.

Also the fact that it's linked to the EVE Online universe, and players in EVE can support Dust 514 players by delivering orbital bombardments and shipping in vehicles for the Dust soldiers.

In this pic here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/nordnordursins/7007057997/in/set-72157629646729543 (http://www.flickr.com/photos/nordnordursins/7007057997/in/set-72157629646729543) - you can see a player in Dust 514 (on PS3 network) requesting an orbital bombardment from a player in EVE (on the EVE Online Network for PC and Mac).

Also the fact that Dust 514 will be FREE for all PS3 owners will probably put it up there with Modern Warfare and Battlefield as a contender for the most popular PS3 Shooter.

Edit: Pic link didn't take you to the intended pic, FIXED  :D

I sometimes have porn in another tab while i'm reading the forums :P Also nothing embarrasses me these days and i've got a pretty thick skin i've been using the internet since 1997. I've also spent most of my working life in male oriented careers so what a poor office girl would consider sexual harassment i'd consider jokes for shits and giggles. I'm fairly sure everyone here knows it's all in good fun so it's nothing for me to feel concerned about.

Now about that porn got any reccomendations?

I can surely do that when I find some time to write it up in English.
It's really quite easy.
But you have to get one dangerous ingredient, sodium hydroxide, at a pharmacy. This is used to achieve the brown color, but it can make you blind if it gets into the eyes.  :o
When I bought a bottle of it at a small pharmacy the guy in there looked at me very suspiciously, like "what's that weird gaijin doing with that?!!"  ;D

Yikes! What's wrong with white pretzels? :o Or does it also affect the taste somehow?


Title: Re: Last thing you did
Post by: manuel on April 13, 2012, 02:19:47 AM
It heavily influences the taste and also the texture of the surface, so it's really necessary. You just have to be very careful and wear gloves when making them. Ideally goggles would be recommended, too.

Rented an apartment in North Carolina for the week.  It's nowhere special -- we just wanted to get away for a bit.

Setup a VPN so I can use this public wi-fi.

The wifi at this apartment is provided by the city, and doesn't use any kind of encryption (WEP/WPA/etc).  Had to setup a VPN so that my data would be encrypted before being sent out over the public network.

I just brewed some tea that we bought yesterday.  Used too much water.  Diluted tea :P

Have you ever put heat paste on a processor before?  If not, I highly recommend watching a Youtube video on it before proceeding.  It's not complicated, but a little goes a long way and it pays to do it right the first time (says the guy who had to clean a processor with a toothbrush once).


Title: Re: Last thing you did

I haven't, but my cousin is coming over to help me build it, and he's built computers a lot more recently than I have, so he'll able to assist me quite a lot.


Title: Re: Last thing you did
Post by: UglyJoe on October 05, 2012, 01:05:00 AM
The last three processors that I installed with the stock heat sink didn't require me to apply any thermal paste manually.  There was already a dab of it on the bottom of the heat sink and I guess it takes hold once the processor warms up for the first time.


Title: Re: Last thing you did
Post by: jpx72 on October 05, 2012, 03:48:11 AM
I have watched a big test for paste applying and the winner was one small pea-size drop in the middle of the processor which spreads evenly by itself when pressed down by a heatsink. Anyway Arctic cooling MX II thermal paste is higly recommended (and cheap !!!), I bought that thing a year ago (4g) and re-pasted a bunch of processors with it, still have something in the tube. So far it's holding temperatures marvelously.

No... well, it was pretty easy, the ending was in Japanese so I couldn't really tell what happened... I was disappointed because I love the original Tiny Toons game, but I never really played much of 2 until tonight. To me, Tiny Toons 2 is a good example of a game company attempting something entirely different with a sequel, and having it go completely wrong. I would have much preferred the gameplay to be more similar to Tiny Toons 1 (I.E. tradition Mario-style platforming), but that's just me.

I checked a computer with Windows 8 at my local electronics shop.

Win8 doesn't have a START menu any more? WTF?  :-[

Ate some Oreos and daydreamed about my lunch break.

Win8 doesn't have a START menu any more? WTF?  :-[

The metro/tiles interface is the start menu.  Win8 isn't as bad as everyone seems to think it is, but it does require some training to understand how it works (which is a very bad thing...).

Seeks like all new stuff is made for idiots who like to "touch" buttons with their fingers.

As an aside, I hate how the MS Office products have started to look, with that dumb "ribbon". It takes me longer to do everything since the menu selections are all over the place and I always have to look around to find what I'm looking for. Then some of the menus disappear from the ribbon. Whose idea was all of this? Everything doesn't need an icon... ::)


Title: Re: Last thing you did
Post by: manuel on March 18, 2013, 02:58:43 PM
But I don't like the metro interface...  :-[
However I think I'll (have to) get used to it in the future... All new PCs here have Win8 as a default now, so I have no choice. (I need Microsoft Office for work, so other OSs are a no-go.)



Title: Re: Last thing you did
Post by: UglyJoe on March 18, 2013, 03:02:45 PM
There are a few software packages that can get you the Start button back in Win8.  There is apparently still code for a Start button in the OS, but it's hidden and/or incomplete.

Word has always been a mess, though.  Over the years, I've simply heard the complaints change from "I can't find this feature" to "I can't find this feature on this stupid toolbar" :P  I don't mind the ribbon, though.  It's pretty much just a tabbed toolbar that attempts to be context sensitive (ie, show table tabs when a table is selected).

Unless, of course, you want to draw a table. Then you have to figure out where that table tab is...oh, yeah, it's not there.  :P More clicks to do the same thing? Whoever came up with this should be shown the door.

Title: Re: Last thing you did
Post by: P on March 19, 2013, 09:44:42 AM
I agree. It's so stupid to make everyone have to learn a whole new interface with basically the same functions every single time you release a new version of an OS, office suit or desktop environment.

They should only change the interface layout if it's necessary for new useful functions or it really makes things more efficient IMHO.

Did you exploit the trick where you throw the other player at the bosses?


Title: Re: Last thing you('re going to) do
Post by: Jedi QuestMaster on July 04, 2013, 07:52:43 AM
I exploited the trick where you die halfway through the level & collect more points to gain hearts.

I felt this game left a bit to be desired; comparing it to the first one:

-less stage order selection
-seemed shorter (or is it just me?)
-less power ups / items

I believe it was a rush job; it kinda shows (even the box art looks questionable: the apple is smaller than them?! :o Even the buildings look proportionate to their size instead of looking much bigger; the clock numbers aren't skewed like they should be but whatever).

The haunted mansion stage missed an opportunity to use the candles as a gimmick like in Brightman's stage of Mega Man IV, but instead they went the Ninja Gaiden II route where the lights just go on & off intermittently (maybe they didn't have time to implementing it?)

Don't get me wrong. I still liked the game & am glad it exists (& I wouldn't trade it for the world). The graphics & gameplay are refined, the bosses were cool, the music is great as always (except one stage! >:(), & that minecart level (enough said!). It was still a fun game. Plus, it's the Rescue Rangers! Who here actually watched that show growing up? I never knew Chip was voiced by a woman-- Tress McNeille at that! :o Just found this out.

Now I'm going to play Duck Tales! (2)


Title: Re: Last thing you did
Post by: Nightstar699 on July 04, 2013, 08:36:03 AM
The last thing I did was read Jedi QuestMaster's assessment of Chip N' Dale 2, agree with most of his points, but admit that CnD2 is still my favorite one just because of how awesome the boss battles are... the pink card-throwing cat was my favorite! But  both CnD games are great. I remember seeing the original cartoon series of it on TV, years ago... but I played the NES game beforehand.

Nice speed! Never tried Arch but have heard good things. This your first time trying it? If for some reason you don't like, check distrowatch.com for other flavors. Xubuntu is pretty good too. They say Gentoo is the fastest swimming penguin but its a little tricky to get up and going.

DDCecil, manuel: what kind of cars?

security16: Did he finish his first day or is he there right now? How was he handling it, was he scared or excited?

Had relatives over for brunch, Cycled around the block for a few minutes then felt the rain starting to come down, lightning is pretty bad in this State, strikes really low to the ground. Figures, as soon as I come back inside it all stops.

Also ordered a Wiimote & Classic Controller Pro so I can get my 8-bit going on through the S4. Next step is to get a HMZ-T1 to play them all on. =]

Tested out the HD PVR that I got for Christmas by recording Famicom games!  Found a neat glitch while trying to get my Hatris cart to work.

Although I have a few Chinese acquaintances I don't know them well enough to do any celebrations with them. But it seems fun considering all Chinese shops seems to close down for a long time during this time of the year. ;D

I've recently though about this myself...people always speculate and mention gloom and doom towards Nintendo, but I don't really care too much as I just don't have much interest at all in the modern games. 

The last thing I did was drank some water, talked with my brother, and listened to some music from the German band, Revolverheld.  I love that band, and will never forget discovering them in Germany, when they had been the opening act for another band I had gone to see.  So when I listen to some of their songs, it always brings back such good memories and makes me feel giddy as a school girl inside.

breakups are hard. If it got to that point though it might be for the best. I don't know what went on and really it's none of my business but do believe this; Its a turning point in your life, and if that part of your life has hit rock bottom, things can only get better. Take care buddy!

Is your sister married?  She is Croatian, I bet she must be beautiful.

Yes, I one time had a problem when the grass was really wet, and then I got the lawn mower stuck in the grass due to the mud and wet grass...I really didn't want to tell my dad (who was working), but my mom is retired so luckily she was there to help me get the lawn mower unstuck.  This was back when I was living with my folks.

If the grass was too high, I would have to go out and rake the grass...and the pick up the extra grass and throw it away, so that it would not kill the other grass that might try to grow.

Well, this isn't exactly the last thing I did, but it's kind of major in my life...

My cat Buffy decided to swallow an entire shoelace last Saturday. We discovered this when she vomited up half of it in front of my girlfriend. She then sucked it back down. Given that it was a holiday weekend, the only veterinarian available in town was the emergency vet. After they were unable to provoke her to puke it all up, she had to have exploratory surgery to remove it.

Two days and $1500 in expenses later, we got to take her home. She's on the mend now, and very much annoyed that she's confined to a bathroom. But we're just trying to keep her activity down so she doesn't rip the stitches holding her guts together for the moment.

The bill was pretty painful, especially at first. To put in perspective, I only earn about $1100 a month, and the girlfriend just lost her job. But I've had a friend volunteer to cover half of that, which is amazing of him. I'm hoping to pay off the rest in a few months with a few sacrifices. That includes no new video games for me for a while, but family comes before hobbies right?

The girlfriend photoshopped this Simpsons reference to serve as our reminder and rallying cry as we live lean for a little while:

Strap on a backpack with your "mobile office"  (laptop, external HD, business textbooks, study notes and handbag stuff) and push a stroller with a kidlet in it and go for a jog :) you'll be fit and doing a whole marathon in no time :P

Also the last thing I did was book in for a workshop for my course

That's about 5 miles.  Next week I will try to increase to 7 miles, and continue increasing by two miles a week until I either phsyically can't do it, or hit 13.  I am going to attempt to run a half marathon in about a month, so I still have a long ways to go ;)

Shaved my face, washed my hands and face .

I hate shaving.  Gotta shave every day, unless I want to look like a bum :(  Once I had grown a beard, but then my girlfriend hated it and my friend said it made me look ten years older, so it got axed when I went in for a haircut.

I just got back from a 8.4 k run, and am now drinking a Bit Burger.  I hope tomorrow or Wednesday I can go until 10 k .  I wanted to do that tonight, and probably could have, except I didn't have time as I had to get back home to do other things.


Title: Re: Last thing you did
Post by: P on June 30, 2014, 04:27:10 PM
I also have to shave every day if I want to be clean shaved. But I have good beard growth so nowdays I keep a well trimmed beard, that way I only have to trim it about twice a week. Both practical and doesn't look too untidy.

How much did you run?  I ran about 6.4 k today, and it was a difficult run...definitely not one of my best, but I also ran it during the afternoon instead of in the evening, so this could have made a difference.  More heat, plus having to stop every five minutes to dodge cars could have screwed me up.

I gotta get to about 21 k for July 27th, so far it is not looking good but I hope that tomorrow or Thursday I can make it to 10 k  (last week I did 8 k so I think I can reach 10 k this week).

I always run 10km, and it's approximately 60 minutes, i also run afternoon and main difficulties are temperature and traffic, but summer just started and i think when it gets warmer i'm gonna run in the morning, and can't wait to go on the Adriatic sea coast on vacation, there is so much easier to run because of different climate and the air is fresher.

For me running is more like a necessary evil to improve my quite bad stamina. I prefer weight training and karate.

Last thing I did: Some light weight training in the cellar. Biceps, triceps and some chest. I've gotten into better shape lately, but I always get fat around Christmas. :-[ I guess I need the extra fat to keep me warm in the winter. ;D

No, Zagreb is 3 hours of driving from where i live, i run in my town, starting from my house and 'til the end of neighbour town, and sometimes i used to run on the local football stadium ,but running in circle is not so interesting...
Today i'm going to fitness and i can say that running become easier since i started to exercise!

Drank some wheat beer (I really like that style) while playing ukelele.  The funniest thing is as follows:

The wheat beer was manufactured for a convenience store here in Taiwan.  However, it was made under the supervision of a German brewery, which is actually owned by a Danish company.  Talk about an international beer!

It is easier said than done, but you just need to hang in there and eventually these times will pass.  I am sure that the folks here at FW will try to offer you their advices / an ear to listen, if none of your real life friends will.  As someone that spent 2 - 3 years depressed, trust me, no matter how crazy the situation, things always get better, so you just need to stay strong (and you seem like a strong person).
