    • Christmas Break

      12 years ago

      RocketR

      So as of yesterday afternoon, I am done with exams and am on Christmas break. I got all A's except for a B in Physics which I am actually pretty happy for.

      My day was going pretty good until I go out to my car and see that someone has hit it. Now I have a dent on the side of my car above the front-right wheel well. I was pretty pissed about that, but what can you do? I mean, I didn't see who did it, but it's just in a very awkward spot.

      Anyways, I hope everyone else's Break's are going well. Only 4 more days until Christmas. For me, it's hard to believe that because it's 80 degrees outside and for some reason this year I just haven't gotten into the season yet. See you guys around...

      I came across this a little while ago. It is free internet radio where you can discover new music by just supplying them your favorite artists and it matches it up to songs and artists similar to your favorites. I have to admit, it does quite a good job. I have found so many great artists that I had never heard of. I recommend everyone to check it out.

    • Computer Monitor or HDTV? Is there much

      in Forums > Computer Monitor or HDTV? Is there much | Follow this topic

      RocketR

      I am in the market for getting a new HD display to play my Xbox 360 on. I've been searching around and there are a ton of options out there, but I am somewhat limited to price. I'd rather not spend more than about one grand. Also, this will be for the bedroom so a not too small and a not too large of TV's is what I am looking for. Here are two options I found:

      A Samsung LN-S2651D 26" which is an LCD HDTV. It has a very nice contrast ratio which is key in video games from what I can tell. It also has some HDMI inputs for the future smiley1.gif . The max resolution on this is 1366 x 768.

      The other is a Dell UltraSharp 2407WFP Wide-Screen Flat Panel Monitor. This has quite a few connections for a computer monitor with VGA, DVI, and Component connections for example. This monitor has a maximum resolution of 1920x1200 with a contrast ratio of 1000:1 (compared to the Samsung's 4000:1). My problem with this is, I have heard mixed reviews about the connections. They are either very good or really bad. Also, will this LCD display in 1080p (which I prefer to the 720p of the Samsung) or even 720p for that matter?

      If anyone has any information that may help, it will be much appreciated.

    • Gears of War

      So officially Gears of War is the best game ever!! smiley0.gif I just love the unbelievable graphics, superb sound, and tremendous gameplay. Epic did such a fine job. I have only had one problem and that was when I was running on a multiplayer map and tried to pick up the Hammer of Dawn and I glitched through the map smiley7.gif . I just had to wait it out until the end of the game, but that only happened just that one time so it was easily forgotten. Again, the graphics are just...breathtaking. I have never seen so much detail in a video game. Oh and did I mention the camera angle? Wow, it's as if you're in a movie the way the camera moves around, which is actually a really cool feature.

      Well I wish I could write more but I best be off. See you around.

      So I got Gears of War pre-ordered a couple weeks back and I have been waiting anxiously ever since to get the game. Wow, the screenshots and videos are AMAZING. I so cannot wait until tomorrow to get it in my hands smiley6.gif . This is the game of the year for sure. Why oh why did my EB decide to hold off until tomorrow to put out the game?!? *sigh* I'll give you guys an update once I get it and my thoughts are confirmed about how great this game is smiley0.gif .

    • Life sucks lately

      12 years ago

      RocketR

      The title pretty much sums it up well. The last two weeks of my life have been hell.

      Two weeks ago, my parents split up (not divorced, just split). As of right now they don't have any plans to get divorced. The whole situation is just plain weird. My mom said she wants time away from my dad right now so she can work out their differences(why can't they just do that from home?). They have no idea how long this may take. Also she takes the house while my dad moves out (he's that way, always doing the best for the family). I'll most likely stay with my dad because my mom is never home and she can get on someone's nerves very easily because she becomes defensive about almost everything you say (even if it was a nice compliment). So it sucks because I really don't want to move when I have a house where I am at now, and we will probably move again after this because the house we have now is a rental. I'm at crossroads on what to do.

      Here's the other part of how life sucks lately. I got loaded down with schoolwork the past two weeks as well. It's as if they planned this whole thing out, lol. I have gotten like no sleep at all lately so I have been dragging which doesn't help at all. Another thing is, I got a staff infection (a life-threatening infection if you let it go without attention), or what we originally thought was a spider-bite. All I had to do was take some antibiotics and it cleared up. The problem is, there's always a chance it can come back so I have to keep an eye on it. I sure hope it doesn't, it freaking hurts, lol.

      To leave on a good note, I pre-ordered the Gears of War Collectors Edition today. I can't wait until that comes out. It looks sick smiley11.gifsmiley11.gif

      Catch you guys later,

      -Matt

    • Spider Bites and School

      12 years ago

      RocketR

      Ah spider bites suck. I don't know how I got bit by one (or maybe two, not sure), but I have two large spider bites. One being on my left arm and the other on my left side. They pretty much suck. They are making the skin around it pale looking while they are flame red. I wish I knew what bit me so I could know if I need to be worried or not. If the swelling doesn't go down by tomorrow, I'll have to go to the doc and check things out. Hopefully nothing bad will come of it.

      Moving on, school is crazy right now. I have three presentations due this week and one I have to do first period tomorrow. I'm not looking forward to it at all. Also I have an English, History, and Physics test this week which sucks too. I have no idea what's going on in Physics (neither does the rest of the class because our teacher has no idea how to teach) and there is a ton of homework due for that class this week. I'm pretty much the most stressed out I have been in a LONG time.

      That's cool to hear about your tennis friends. What is the name of the two who are ranked in nation? And what are they ranked in, juniors in a section or what not? That sounds like fun though getting to hit with them. I can't wait to either play for the college team or start the club team here at the campus. In the club circuit for the colleges there are some nationally ranked players as well.

      You certainly can't be expected to know what you want to major in yet. I'm still haven't decided; I have lots of ideas and there are tons of things I think would be great, but the challenge is finding the best fit for you. To plug my own college, I came here because Carolina's academic programs have such variety. If I wanted to (and I might) I could take a course on Sanskrit or Persian. My advice is that, if you still are undecided when it comes college-choosing time, go with a school that has a lot of variety.
