      You know those times where you're supposed to do something, and yet you procrastinate and do something else. Well, I feel that the time I spend on other stuff is more fun and productive.

      Take for instance, last Thurday during my Online Programming classes. At the beginning of the semester, there were 10 lab assignments we had to complete by the end of the semester. Eventually, because of how fast my class has gone with the assignments, they added in 3 more. Most of my classmates and I completed 9 of them already, so we usually spend more time surfing the internet rather than completing the last 3.

      Rather than just outright telling us to do our work, our professor takes control of our computers, and moves the mouse to shutdown any web browsers that are active. Rather than being motivated to do my work, I was motivated to find a way to make it harder for him to get any satisfaction out of this.

      So, on Thursday, the moment I noticed him trying to close my web browser, I opened the first link from google titled "World's most annoying website". I opened it, and a pop up window comes up that pretty much disables the close button. The laughter that came from my classmate as the professor tried to close the web browser made the effort worth it.

      Today, I'm supposed to clean my own room due to constant nagging. Well, after practicing a bit with my Kukri Knives, I realized something: I haven't given them any names. I looked up names on the internet. Now, Mercy is sitting at my bed, and Justice is in the closet for backup. I regret nothing.

    • PSN > Xbox Live? LMAO!

      So people that bash the Xbox 360 complain about how for Xbox Live, players have to pay $50 a year. Well, then they obviously have to deal with more bullshit from the online community than we do.

      While the Xbox Live team bans people whom use glitches to ruin everybody else's fun, Sony doesn't give a shit at all.

      Just shows how more fun the online environment can be for people when there are consequences if you act like an outright dick and ruin everybody everybody else's fun.

    • Turkey Massacre

      9 years ago

      Nitro288

      Thanksgiving was better this year. My sister, mother and I had Turkey for Lunch. Then, for dinner, my sister, my dad and I went over to my cousin's apartment to join him and his family for dinner.

      According to my cousin, he's been experiencing paranormal activity in his place.

      One night, at 4:00 am, something woke my cousin up by tapping him on the shoulder. My cousin noticed the time, and then heard some very loud footsteps.
      He called out, trying to figure out who it was that woke him up. When he got no response, he grabbed his baseball bat and went to the kitchen. Around this time, his mother heard the footsteps too, so she got up. Then, she saw my cousin in the kitchen with the lights on, drinking a glass of chocolate milk. He sleep with the baseball bat that night.
      About 30 minutes before my sister and I greeted him in his room, he was checking himself out in the mirror. Then, the door next to him violently closed.

      Apart from the paranormal stories my cousin shared, there was karaoke. I sang Hero(Enrique Iglesia) and Smooth Criminal. :D

      Well, thats my thanksgiving.

      I love Google. Too bad their stocks are worth more than an individual stock from Microsoft.
      I've recently starting buying stocks through E-Trade. I hope the hunches I have are spot on.


      I've also recently took advantage of Gamestop's PowerTrade so that I can trade in two games to buy L4D2 for under $20. I plan to buy Assassin's Creed 2 on Black Friday.

      So much for my dilemma of having to choose between L4D2 and AC2.


      On youtube, I uploaded a better quality video of a cheap tactic you can take advantage of to get 3 Stars on the SpecOps Mission "High Explosive" on Modern Warfare 2. Very useful if you want to get achievements on MW2 without spending so much time dying because of the Juggernauts.

    • Why...

      9 years ago

      Nitro288

      "...is there a dead pakistani on my couch"

      I typed in "Why" on the Google search bar, and line above was one of the suggestions. Yahoo seriously stands no chance in this search engine war, and Bing fails even more.

      Oh, and apparently there is an awesome article on Cracked that made me realize something: I've experienced Exploding Head Syndrome in the past.

      And a fucking bomb goes off in your head. There's a horrendous noise, like someone is firing a handgun from somewhere inside your skull and then a flash of light ...
      ... And suddenly, it's over again. Your heart is pounding. You look around the room blinking, shocked to find that your brains aren't splattered all over the bedroom. Physically, you appear perfectly fine.

      Link
      I once had a dream in which I was in a room, and the moment I jumped to the floor, I bounce off it and into the ceiling... and then, I experienced Exploding Head Syndrome. Then there are other times In which I wake, wondering why the only thing I remembered from my dream was a flash of light and an explosion.
      I was laughing so hard the moment I learned about it.

      Video Games
      Modern Warfare 2 fixed every single thing that was wrong with the previous game, you know, like any new sequel should do. Except, it also reworked the Mutiplayer. Similar Gameplay, more control(or less) over what you can and cannot do while playing mutiplayer.

      My favorite Weapon:

      24%5Canlong%5Cimg%5C200753192024.jpg

      Yes, the Riot Shield. Combine that with a throwing knife, and you've got one heck of a class that very few people will even be capable of using properly.

      Left 4 Dead 2 comes out soon, and I'm not sure if I'll be getting it on opening day, but I will end up getting it eventually. If anyone wants to play the demo with me, just let me know. Modern Warfare 2 gets tiring after uninterrupted hours of Multiplayer matches.

      Been too long since I wrote a journal entry. I've been busy with classes, and using my free time to try to watch all the episodes of Smallville. I'm currently waiting till I can start watching the Six season.

      Halloween was a failure like last year, where I was unable to attend the Parade. However, going to Six Flags Frightfest the night before more than made up for it. I now know for sure who to trust when the zombie apocalypse comes.

      I'm also now own these two Items:

      - McFarlane Halo 3 "The Rookie" Figure (Green Variant)

      - 2 Military Kukri Knives.

    • Birthday became Awesome

      Nitro288

      I didn't expect my 20th Birthday to suddenly become awesome.

      My sister gave me $50, and my parents gave me $100. $150 in total.

      I bought:

      Amazon
      $10.04 - Zombie Survival Guide by Max Brook(I know, about time)
      $23.10 - 1000 Vegetarian Recipes (Need to eat Healthy)
      $10.88 - One Up on Wall Street (To learn how to become an Investor)
      $23.09 - Learning XNA 3.0 by Aaron Reed ( To Learn how to make Indie Games)

      eBay
      $44.39 - Pinnacle MovieBox Plus (Better quality USB Capture Card than the one I have now)

      I'm saving up the rest of my money for Borderlands.

      About 3 days ago, I took notice that after collecting all 30 Audiologs, the cutscene in which you meet the engineer changes a bit.

      The change it the cutscene when I first saw it gave me a sense of accomplishment and satisfactions, like I actually did my job right as The Rookie.

      And reviewers tell me that Halo lacks story. Morons.

    • Hitchhikers may be escaped convicts

      Nitro288

      So, my gaming timeline:

      - Finished H3: ODST Campain on Heroic Co-Op.
      - Completed Vidmaster: Classic.
      - Found All 30 Audiologs on Normal Difficulty in 3 player Co-Op.
      - Completed Vidmaster: Deja Vu.
      - Completed Vidmaster: Endure.
      - Earned the Achievement for completing Campaign on Legendary.
      - Completed Solo Legendary Campaign, from the very beginning without skipping straight to each level.
      - Spent 2 Hours with a friend hunting down Engineers for the Naughty Naughty Achievement.
      - Got all Firefight achievements.
      - Finished All Riddler Challenges in Batman AA
      - Found the identity of the Spirit of Arkham in Batman AA

      Quite a fun time in Halo 3: ODST. I intend to run through a Solo Legendary Campaign, this time, collecting all the Audiologs, and not making the mistake of playing Kikowani Station before collecting the first 29 Audiologs like I did on my first run. Just the idea of exploring Mombasa Streets, avoiding or harassing Covenant patrols are good times for me.

      As for Classes? My Second Cobol Programming class sucks; I barely understood the course materials in the first class last semester, and I am expected to remember it for this semester. Yet somehow, I'm not doing bad in my CICS programming classes. For some reason, the CICS programming class is called "Online Programming"; which was a bit misleading when I entered the classes.

      Still no luck on my job hunt. I've sent paper applications to Barnes & Noble, Gamestop and PC Richards.
