    • My friend sucks and rocks!

      14 years ago

      EagleMan B. Sc, B. Ed

      Here's the story. Steve, a friend of mine, was going to the San Diego Comicon. When I found out RT would be there, I asked him to take my DVDs to get signed. Bad news was, we both work at different times, so we weren't able to meet up. So he calls me up on the day he's leaving and tells me the place where he catches the airport bus is 5 blocks from where I work. So he tells me the time and I say that I'll slip out of work at that time. Now, i think I got the time wrong cause I went there, but he was nowhere to be found. He said that he waited for me for 1/2 and hour, as I did him. Needless to say, he left without my DVDs, but he marked RvB on his Con map as a place to go.

      So he arrives at the RvB booth, and says "My friend Eric was going to give me some stuff to get signed, but he never showed up to give them to me. Isn't he a jerk?" So Joel and Kathleen, feeling sorry for me...or him...or both...took pity on me and gave him an autographed shirt for me. I don't know whether to thank him or punch him.

    • Graduation and the furtherance of Shisno

      EagleMan B. Sc, B. Ed

      Well, it's confirmed. I am graduating in a week. Sweet. You're looking at the text written by on of the newest UBC BSc Comp Sci Graduates.

      On a slightly different note, I was bored and decided to google "Shisno". I was very surprised to get about 74 hits! This one is my favourite. It's from an eminem forum:

      "Yo hey dog wat up i have this new cd i luv its the shisno"
      and another:
      "man i can't chose that good i think business is the shisno though tell me which 1 u like man"

      What an insult! This guy must really dislike business and the cd!

    • A Free U2 Concert and a Music Video!

      14 years ago

      EagleMan B. Sc, B. Ed

      Vancouver, BC, Canada:
      Yesterday, April 27, 2005, at 12:00pm (PST), local radio stations announced that U2, who is scheduled to play today, was looking for 4000 people to come to GM Place at 3:00pm to be in their new music video. Apparently at 11:00am they had decided, "Hey, we've got some time, let's shoot a video."

      Anyway, the video being shot was City of Blinding Lights. We were ushered in at about 7:30pm, arranged in the lower bowl, and then they played City of Blinding Lights four times. Then we were all ushered onto the floor. The stage had a large circle around it so that there was a runway on the floor creating an "inner floor" and an "outer floor." People with special yellow bracelets got to go on the inner floor, and everyone else was on the outer floor. They set up the crowd cameras, and played the song once more, this time with shiny confetti raining from the ceiling. Then, while waiting for the director to review the footage, Bono said "Sorry [director's name]. It's too late!" They then broke out into Vertigo, followed by All Because of You, and finally, Sometimes You Can't Make it on Your Own.

      It was awesome! Great (free) show, and lots of fun. maybe when it comes out, I'll post a picture of myself and you can look for me ;)

      See my images for my proof.

    • I'M DONE!!!!

      14 years ago

      EagleMan B. Sc, B. Ed

      In more than one way.

      1) I finished Halo. Due to exams and studying, it took me 2 weeks. I thought that Keyes being Flood was predictible. I also learn a few things about myself:
      a) I'm a pretty good sniper
      b) my favorite weapons are the human ones (specifically the pistol)
      c) I'm a horible Warthog driver

      2) I'm done exams! As long as I don't fail any courses (which I don't think I will, the way exams went), I will graduate from UBC this May with a BSc in Computer Science. Hooray! Only one mark back so far (80%).

    • I'm probably gonna get flamed for this..

      14 years ago

      EagleMan B. Sc, B. Ed

      ...but I just installed Halo on my computer!

      A little bit of back story:
      Growing up, I was pretty deprived as a computer nerd. I didn't have any type of console, not even a Gameboy or Atari, but I had two of the coolest computers: a Commodore 64 and an Amiga 4000! I could play games on these, and they were cool, but not as complex as stuff now. I could only use the joystick; I had no gamepad. When we finally got a PC (P1 133), it was my dad's for work, so I wasn't allowed to install games on it. Dispite this, I am actually a natural at video games. I'm not great, but I don't suck too bad when I start off. One example of this: The only game I had was a demo of Need For Speed II SE, which only had one car and one track, yet somehow, I managed to consistently beat my best friend and his stepdad when playing the full version at their house. I always let them pick the track. Anyway, about 2 years ago, I decided, "Hey. I'm in Computer SCience, I should probably have my own computer." So I went out and bought one. It's a P4 2.67GHz, 1GB PC3200 RAM (now), with a GForce 5200 and a SB Audigy 2 ZS. I know it's not the best, but it's pretty good, and all (more than) I can afford, what being a student and all. I like it (said a la Cabose[sic]).

      So, I've started buying all the games that I've always wanted to play, but never had the chance. Ex: Starcraft, Diablo, Halo, etc. However, I know that if I install them all at once, then I will not be able to finish any of them, so I have the policy: Pick one. When it's done, install the next. So, since my Wolverine's Revenge keeps crashing on me (stupid rush to market product, more on this below), I decided to leave it and go to Halo. I played for 4 hours last night and got to the part of Truth and Reconsiliation right after you rescue Captain Keyes. I don't consider this too bad, cause I'm more of a programmer than a gamer so I take it slow, I didn't die that many times (mostly because I accidently backed off of cliffs :? ), and I'm still fiddling with the A/V settings to reduce lag. All I have to say is that this game rocks. I'm kind of disappointed with the cut scenes, though. They can make peoples' mouth move in-game, but not in the cuts.

      X2: Wolverine's Revenge
      This is really annoying. There's a level where you are in a shielded area and have to defeat Juggernaut. You have to make him run into these electrified poles to stun him (cause he's invulnerable when he's running), without touching said poles yourself, then attack him before he recovers, all the while marines are shooting stun gas at you! This is a tedious level, and when I finally beat it, to my surprise, it crashes. I was quite mad. Anyway, I restarted thinking that it was just a fluke, but it's not really a fluke when it happens 3 times in the exact same place. So finally I email Activision asking what the problem is. I knew that they rushed this game to capitalize on the X2 movie, and it's not a bad game, but I wasn't ready for the reply. This is taken straight from their response email:

      Hello,

      Thank you for contacting customer support.

      The general game stability was a known issue that the developer did not have time to address before the title went gold. The game stability issues are legacy to the console.

      Below is a list of some sites that usually offer game guides, walkthroughs and codes are:

      www.videogames.com
      www.happypuppy.com
      www.gamefaqs.com

      Maybe there is a walkthrough that explains how to avoid this or a code to access the next level.


      Yeah. So I've ditched the game for now. Maybe they'll make a patch for it later (yeah right).

      Well that's it for now.

      PS: Yes, I know! I'm writing in my journal! We should have a parade!

      -- Edit --
      It turns out that Wolverine's Revenge does not like non-default video settings. I figured out that if I change the in-game video settings back to 800x600x16 bit colour, then it works. *grumble*

      I just found out that there have been 46 mutants on the X-Men over the 40+ years they've been around. Who can name all 46? There may be some mod points involved.

      I could only name 43.

      No cheating from anyone who has read Wizard! (I'll find out!)

      That is way cool, i left off reading X-Men right up to Messiah Complex. I know a little about Messiah Complex but the stories you are referring to i have not heard. Sadly my money is little, i will hope to try to find some of these in trades if i can.

      I would discuss DC Talk or Jars of Clay but i have almost no knowledge about the bands. I love the song What if I Stumble but DC Talk and God Will Lift Up You Head by Jars of Clay. I have not tried finding more songs by them but if you could recommend any i will try to find them.

      It is hard to believe it has been three years since House of M.

      i just realized you had two bands that sometimes i find interesting songs from

      and on another note, i would hope they change how lino looks if they do that Thundercats movie for it does do him right

      I do hope to do quite a bit of travelling soon though, so you might ending seeing me at some point next year.

      Wish I'd known you had those images before. I spent a couple hours last night hunting down all 14 of the images, plus the special Elektra and Ms Marvel images, as well as the Galactus one, which someone made and posted on Horn's forum. They had all the images on Marvel, but you couldn't download them. And Horn has them all on his site, but they're smaller than they're supposed to be. So it took me forever to track all the images down.

      Sure, but I'll warn you now. Some of them are resistant to outsiders. You have to prove that you know something about Comic Books and their movies, and don't be surprised if they swear at you...they do that to everybody.

      Ahh, thank you for the warning, mmm... I would probably only really chat in the ones that I might know anything about, but there are only a few of the comic book movies that I have avoided, mm. I still would like to at least read what is happening over there, ha haa... ^_^

      Yeah, I try. Isn't it kind of weird to post on your friend's profile? Why don't you just get your own? I'm just about to go to bed. It's about 11pm here.

      Ohh, she doesn't mind at all, mm. You know, I used to have my own profile, but I got way too much attention, and I got very much tired of the site, so I deleted the account and left. I DID come back for a short while just to chat with my friends from before, but then people found me again, and it started up with the "why aren't you talking to me?? I thought we were friends.... = (" coming from people who were not very kind or genuine with me. SOOO, I just like to keep in touch with some good friends from before on Jen's profile, and also write some things now and again, mm! I WOULD want my own profile, but nooo, not a THIRD time, ha ha ha... =p

      Have a good night, Mr. Eagle-Man! Maybe chat more with you another time, mm! ^_^

      Cool. What songs are you listening to? All their stuff is really good. I have all their CDs and listen to them all the time.

      Ahh, yes, they sounded pretty fun, mm! The song I was listening to was on their site, I think, and it was something to do with "Papa" and "rolling stone?" Sorry, I do not know much about the rock'n'roll music, ha ha ha...! =p

      Yes, Settlers is VERY engaging, but it isn't really like SimCity at all. It's more like Risk meets...Monopoly...or something. You build Settlements, Cities, and Roads to gain points, but placement on the board is important because each space is assigned a resource and a number related to the dice. If the number is rolled, then you get to collect that resource which you can use to trade or build. The engaging (and competetive) part comes when space starts to run out on the board. Then people are competing for certain good spots and they end up racing. Or when people refuse to trade with the person who's winning. It's a lot of fun.

      Ahh, that sounds like it could be so much fun, ESPECIALLY with enthusiastic participants, mm! I think that could be said for ANYTHING, really, but still! I had played some pretty epic(ly long) games of both "Risk" and "Monopoly" before, but this really seems neat, too. Something that was kind of similar in its, mmm... premise? ... is this one computer board game I had played in Taiwan called "Africa," where it was all about getting various crops and minerals, and competing with other players to attain the best shares in the market. It was a neat gamble, holding out on selling a bunch of shares of corn, or whatever you may have, until the best price came up, or being very greedy, and waiting out just ONE MORE TURN, and then the market crashes, and you are forced to sell low in order to stay in the game. It can be SOO fun!! =D I wish I could find it here, ahhh....

      The server crash of 2005 was pretty much just that. The hard drive died for a few days and when they put in the new one, they went with the latest back-up, so forum posts disasppeared and people lost mod points and stuff.

      Eeee.... was there any way to reverse it, or was it just set once the damage was done? That sounds troublesome, nonetheless... = \

      That pic with Jeskid was from last year, but I actually never noticed Luke in it until recently!

      Ha ha ha! Well it looked like a lot of fun, mm! Hopefully there will be more good times similar to it in the future, mmm? ^_^

      Eagle-Man is me. I really don't remember how it started (although eagles ARE pretty cool). The Galactus is in reference to the Comic Book Movies thread in the forums. We have a sort of "Family" of regular posters, and we each have an avatar and title that go along with that.

      Ahh, that sounds like a neat thread! Maybe I will check it out sometime, mm. = )

      THANK you for all the responding!! It's a rare day to see any more than just a few quick blurbs, which is TOTALLY fine, but this was a great read! I hope we can have more chats in the future, EVEN though I TECHNICALLY am not on here, just visiting on my friend's profile. OH well! =p

      So how is your evening going, Mr. Eagle-Man? Any plans for you?? I might make some coffee, and sit down for a game of SOMETHING, just not sure what yet, ha ha ha... = )
