      As probably none of you have noticed, my activity here has gone down dramatically. With the busy end of summer, following the even busier start of school, I have little time to devote to *certain* online activities. I now drop in on the site for a minute once every day or so, but I'm no longer an active member of the LFTO thread smiley2.gif , as much as I would like to be. I still smiley12.gif everyone there, though.

      On the bright side, I did get up to 30 karma not too long ago. Yay me. smiley0.gif Also, I'm still a sponsor, 'cause seriously... RvB rocks. smiley13.gif

      Typically when people are on summer vacation, they are able to spend more time online and the like. Not the case with me, it seems. So I'm just putting it out there that while I'll be coming online here and there, I won't often be online for significant amounts of time (plus I'll actually be out of town for two weeks in July). I'll be keeping up with Recreation, but I'm not so sure about how well I'll be keeping up with journal entries, let alone keep up with all of the LFTO posts. I'll do my best, but no guarantees. smiley0.gif

      Apparently my web blocker hates me.

      Don't get me wrong, it blocks plenty of stuff that I don't care for...

      ...but it blocks most of the videos from this site. Even the downloads. I STILL HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO WATCH THE NEW EPISODE. And my brother is the one with the password, which he prefers not to tell me. He can unblock stuff for me when I need it, but I'm just a bit frustrated by this point. At least I should be able to watch it tonight, tomorrow at the very latest. I need my new episode. ;_;

      that the new RvB series is getting started right as I'm finishing up this term.

      I'm super stoked about it of course, but it does make it difficult to keep up with the LFTO thread, since the last week or two of school is always really busy.

      At least it will be over soon, and then I can enjoy RvB without concern for tests and papers. smiley0.gif

      So, I haven't been paying very close attention to E3 so far, but when I found out that they're making Golden Sun DS, I kinda freaked out. Words cannot express how excited I am to hear that. smiley0.gifsmiley12.gifsmiley13.gif

      That is all.

    • Catching Up

      10 years ago

      Dizzle13

      Well, I've been gone for the past several weeks. I've been able to come online for long enough to see news and blog posts by the staff and everything, but haven't been able to catch up on forum and journal posts yet. I'm working on it.

      I've had so much going on recently-
      - Winter semester coming to a close, meaning the time to finish up projects, quizzes, papers, etc.
      - Finals week (blech, that was fun)
      - Moving apartments
      - Starting spring term
      - My mom coming to visit for a week
      - Catching up on classes I missed while my mom was here

      ...plus just school and work in general. The good news is, I've made a lot of progress in catching up here. The bad news is... I missed the epic page 1000 in LFTO. smiley2.gif I am in the picture TheRecreator put together though, so that makes me happy. smiley12.gif

      I'll bet that the few people who watch me already know about this, but I'll put it out there anyway. smiley0.gif

      TheRecreator has created a new webcomic for the LFTO Group. It's pretty sweet, so you should definitely go check it out! (And be sure to mod it if you like it!)

    • Another Red vs Blue Fan

      10 years ago

      Dizzle13

      My brother is the one who originally introduced me to Red vs Blue. (I blame him for my addiction. smiley0.gif ) We watched about two seasons of BGC together, and I thought it was just awesome. Eventually, I wanted to find the rest on my own, and I proceeded to watch everything else, in addition to signing up on this site and becoming a sponsor. It's safe to say that I became much more obsessed with it than my brother, who introduced me to it (I think he had only watched 2.5 or 3 seasons of BGC, total).

      Since I became a fan, I've tried to convince some of my friends to go and watch it all. Each one seemed to like the material and think that it was funny, but no one would continue to watch all of it like I did. My roommate has probably seen about two seasons (at most), and keeps giving me hope that she will eventually watch the rest, but she never seems to want to take the time to do so. But I keep holding onto the hope, so I don't ever want to talk about a lot of things that go on in RvB, for fear that I'll spoil something. So I come to the forums to talk about RvB (LFTO FTW), since I can't talk about it to my liking among any of my friends.

      HOWEVER, recently the same brother who introduced me has been watching more RvB, and finally finished off BGC. He is next going to watch OoM and RO, followed by Reconstruction (and finally, Relocated). We met today to study for a test in a class that we have together, and at least half the time we were quoting/talking about Red vs Blue. I am so stoked that he's watching it all now, and I'll have someone close who I can discuss it with.

      It's hard to overstate my satisfaction. smiley9.gif

    • Tex: AI Theory

      10 years ago

      Dizzle13

      I've always been of the opinion that Tex was a completely separate smart A.I., like Alpha was before he was tortured. However, recently I noticed something that Delta says in Chapter 7 that caught my attention.

      Delta: There is one smart A.I. in the Freelancer program.
      Wash: Delta-
      Delta: The Alpha is a fully formed-
      Wash: Delta! That's enough.


      Delta specifically says that there is only one smart A.I. in the Freelancer program. And specifically says that one is the Alpha, implying that Tex isn't a smart A.I. After spending a small amount of time with Church, Delta was able to figure out that Church was the Alpha without a lot of apparent evidence.

      Wash: Delta was the logic. He was able to figure out things before anyone else. It's why he left a message for you in a way that he knew only you could find, and in a way that let me see you getting it.


      Delta was obviously way ahead of everyone on this. And if he could figure out Church so easily, he certainly could've figured out Tex, who he was more acquainted/familiar with. But he obviously didn't suspect anything. Again, I believe that this indicates that Tex isn't a smart A.I.

      Which leads me to two options - either an iFrag (fragment of the Alpha) or another type of A.I. altogether. If she is an iFrag, it seems to be likely that she would be a larger or earlier portion - in this case, I'd guess Beta. Her actual "personality trait" could be a number of things, or perhaps she was some part of the Alpha that was still attached to Allison, in love with her, and grieving for her.

      I'm not sold on Tex being an iFrag - she seems too complete and too important within PF (Project Freelancer) to just be another of the Alpha's fragments. Additionally, Wash has abosolutely no clue what Tex is - "I don't know what she is," and "Tex is... confusing." Epsilon would've been the last A.I. to split off (which is why Wash knows all the things he knows - Epsilon would've gotten memories of all the torture that happened before he split). If Tex were an iFrag, Epsilon would likely have had memories of Tex and her formation. If this were true, Wash would've seen those memories, some or all, once Epsilon started losing control, giving him knowledge about Tex.

      So this is my theory: Project Freelancer attempted to make another A.I. after the Director's memories of Allison, for two reasons: (1)they could only receive one A.I. for their experiments, and (2)the Director was haunted by her memory, and attempted to do something about it by making an A.I. of her. But since it wasn't actually based on her mind, it couldn't be created as a fully-formed, smart A.I., like the Alpha. Rather, what they got from it was some kind of lesser A.I. So, Tex would be neither an iFrag nor a smart A.I., but is a stand-alone, lesser A.I. Still powerful, but different. (Which could also be one of the reasons why she worked so closely with the Director - not only would Tex be inclined to be the Director's favorite, just by the nature of their relationship, but they could've also worked closely to attempt to augment her capabilities as an A.I.)

    • What Is That?

      10 years ago

      Dizzle13

      So the other day I was watching the Go Go Gadget PSA, one of my favorites. As I got to the part where the on-screen text generator is screwed up, I suddenly was really curious as to what those bullets actually said (I blame the LFTO thread).

      Text.jpg

      After searching for some time what those languages displayed might be, I came across some characters that looked like the ones from the second bullet. Devanagari was the language it appeared to be. So I searched and searched for somewhere online that I could figure out what that second bullet said. After a while, I came across a website where someone could translate a bunch of languages for free, one of which was Devanagari. Crossing my fingers, I sent an email to the webmaster requesting for them to translate the second bullet, saying I thought it was Devanagari, but I was no authority. I also requested that they translate the first bullet for me, if possible, even though I still hadn't determined exactly what language that was.

      The next day, I get an email back from the webmaster, who is in fact able to translate both the first and second bullet for me. It turns out, the first bullet is Japanese katakana, but it's just gibberish. "As it is, it would read something like [dope: djezupujiya zuhe]". The second bullet does turn out to be Devanagari, but the letters are "randomly arranged & do not have any meaning attached to them." So I decided the third bullet was probably no different.

      RT could've at least put something funny or completely random in there, just to humor my nerdiness. But at least now I know what it says. Er... doesn't say...?

        Yeah, I haven't been to the thread recently because for now, I'm not a sponsor. Also, I wouldn't want spoilers either anyway. :P

        And I don't use Skype much, but my Skype name is Dizzle131. Maybe I'll drop in sometime.

        Oh, there are still some old timey folks who hang around, and they'd recognize your avatar. I haven't been around the thread in a bit due to the release of the Season 10 DVD and I'm desperately avoiding any chance of any spoilers.

        Some of us have been hanging out on Skype quite regularly. If you have a Skype name, let me know and I'll drag you in.

        Haha, I can't believe it's taken me this long to see your message. Man, my life has gotten busy. I really should stop by the LFTO folks, though I'm not sure if anyone besides you would even remember me. :P

        Good to see you too, though! :)

      Just because! Which makes it all the more awesome. I was saving up, and by the end of the summer would have been able to buy it, but my mom said that if she was going to buy it, I would have to wait till my birthday in October. Apparently not!!

      Definitely still need a female voice.

      No one has submitted anything yet, it has been a week, and i cant get other aspects of the production going without the recorded dialog.

      It is rather frustrating in that aspect, so i am glad that I have your support, even if you are only on a back burner basis.

      thanks, I hope I get to go. This will b the only way I will ever meet the fellas from RT. I have been trying to go away and go on vacation somewhere but outside sources just keep messing that up. A friend of mine just informed me he wanted to go and I never would have thought in a million years he would want to go. So we are making plans to go.

      Well, it is a private school, so when I was caught sending porn to a student of theirs (this was this year, after I left), they weren't too happy. Needless to say, I'm not welcome there anymore.

      I usually do forget them except for a select few. I wrote this journal 3 hours after I woke up and still remembered little details like the room number and what not. Including this dream, I have 3 total dreams I still remember, some happened at least 6 years ago. One I was driving down some road with my friend and came across some nuclear plant and we decided to go in and explore it. went down like 6 levels below ground finding a whole lot of weird shit. and the other one was I lived in a New York type setting, and some people kidnapped my wife and I had to do some Splinter Cell type moves to try and get close to her but they captured me and were going to kill us both, but I woke up.

      yeah I had kind of lucked out...when Geoff has put up the pre-order page I had just received my credit card statement for the month. I paid off extra than I normally do to make sure I could pre-order Reconstruction and air mail it. Since they had said it was not shipping until around the 21st of November and I wanted to bring it home with me for Thanksgiving to show my brother, I had to pay a little extra. Also, that means more times I can watch it...hooray!
