      I fucking hate cats. Annoying little shits. Scratches shit, hides all day, doesn't show any affection, walks around making noise all night, and when you pick it up to scold it it cries like a little baby (too bad the cutesy kitten thing doesn't work on me... I'm a dog person). This kitten especially is really bad.

      Hes going back to the adoption agency in two days! :D

    • Finally got my GF her christmas present

      After more than a week of waiting for adoption papers I finally got a kitten for my girlfriend. I was adopting it from some agency and they said they could give it to me before Christmas but they were just a litttlee late on that.

      Anyways, hes a cute little bugger named Wooly. Little domestic shorthair that is mostly tan with some faint stripes on his legs. She loves him to say the least.

      If it wasn't for the being late thing I'd say I'm the best boyfriend in the world. I'll get pics of him later.

    • Gears 2 vs Halo 3

      10 years ago

      Zerotide2

      Just got done with the campaign of both and I have to say...

      Better Campaign: Gears 2
      This was easy. The grungy graphics and rough edged characters make this an intense campaign. I loved every minute of the curb stomping, chain saw bayoneting action. For some reason I am really drawn to apocalyptic sci-fi shooters like Gears and Halo but Gears definitely has a more desperate and real feel to it. The 3rd person setup and the active cover system in Gears makes it seem more realistic and takes away the tunnel vision you get in 1st person. I liked having to take cover to get anywhere in game. Much better than run and gun imo.

      Better Storyline: Gears 2
      Again, easy. Halo one was awesome. Story was great, kept me wondering what was going to happen next as I unlocked the secrets of the ring. There were plenty of twists. Halo 2 started the downward spiral. All the cliffhangers and turns feel way too forced. Gears is a different story. You feel you are making the story and figuring things out for yourself rather than being told a story. Everytime over the course of Gears 1 and 2 when you think you have finally put an end to something that damn Queen will have a line that will ruin all of your expectations. I honestly don't think the locust were defeated at the end of Gears 2. The Locust Queen seems to think that we don't know why they are waging war on us... that bit she said about every day we fight back brings us closer to our extinction makes me think that maybe there is an even greater power than the locust under the Earth. Guess we'll have to wait for Gears 3.

      Better Multiplayer: Halo 3
      Haven't had much of a chance to play Gears 2's multi but I know that even though Halo has had its shortcomings in single player since the original Halo, they have continued to make the multi an awesome experience. Halo 3 definitely follows the trend. While it kinda sucks that I suck and everyone else seems to be fucking awesome, I'm sure the vast number of options will keep me occupied for awhile.

      Florida and Oklahoma.

      I like Oklahoma to win this but I don't actually like Oklahoma. I'm really starting to dislike them and Stoops. They are getting so cocky... I guess no one can win humbly anymore. That and Stoops has run up the score in his last 5 games... leaving the first string in when your up by 45 is the definition of class. BCS be damned fuck you Stoops.

      Go Florida.

      Someone told my mom RWD cars are bad in the snow and her being a mom, freaked out. I'm hoping this doesn't go any further but she is probably in the process of trying to convince my dad that I need to get rid of my rwd sports car and get something AWD and boring.... I hate the way moms think sometime.



      (On the plus side a mazdaspeed6 or Evo 8 wouldn't be a downgrade >:])

      But God I wanna keep my 8. Keep your fingers crossed she doesn't get to my dad.

      Played it for the first time (yes I'm a loser I know) and played from start to finish on the campaign and I must say I am now a fan. I think Gears of War 2 will be on my Christmas list.

    • Changing predictions again...

      10 years ago

      Zerotide2

      Wow... College Football has been a roller coaster this year. Let's just get down to it, after Oklahoma's shellacking of Texas Tech I have a new prediction:

      Florida beats Alabama in their regular season finale, Oklahoma beats Ok. State in theirs. I really don't think it's fair to cut Texas out of the title game because they beat Oklahoma, but Oklahoma is just. on. fire. I really hope Florida puts up a good fight in the championship game but I just don't see that happening. Oklahoma comes to play in big games. They will embarrass Mizzou in the Big XII championship game.

      00023759-942989_250.jpg34hunag.jpg
      Oklahoma over Florida for the title.

      Now, where is Nebraska headed? Well first off we're headed to win over Colorado for our final game (sorry thirdechelon :P) and into the top 25 heading into the bowl season. (We should be already we were ranked as high as 19 in some media rankings).

      What bowl? After Notre Dame's bad loss to Syracuse and our eventual win over CU... the Gator Bowl vs Florida State. I think this is a fair assumption. Its gonna be a great game. I would love to see the Huskers finish up 9-4 in their first season with a new coach. Give this program some direction again. People are crying for the power running game to come back but that just doesn't work in modern football anymore. Zone read plays and spreading out the field bring big yards. NU's offensive coordinator, Shawn Watson (who was ironically Colorado's oc when Colorado hung 62 points up on a very good 2001 husker football team) has been moving more towards a spread offense in the last couple games. The result? 4 wins out of 5 games... that one loss coming to OU.

      I wish College Football went year round.

      Oh no, the 8 certainly wouldn't be a downgrade. I would love one most def. But, idk if i want to keep 2 cars still... I would like to go to an AWD sedan with a good fun factor. I am scared to get a 'rex' for insurance reasons... and the A4 is nice. IDK, I am definitely not set, but I am fairly close.

      Volvo S60R is up there too. Lol.

    • burgundy

      10 years ago

      Yeah, I am worried about going from the Z to anything... its not a move I want to do, but I guess I have to do it eh? I did find some 8's at stellar prices though, it had me thinking, but I am sure the insurance would be about as bad as the Z... and I would really like a winter car too, and I couldn't bring myself to drive an 8 in the winter... not in Illinois.

    • burgundy

      And get an Evo VII... I've seen some around for $16,000. Or a Mazdaspeed6 or Mazdaspeed3... either is a load of fun.


      I would love an EVO, but insurance would bum rape me. And the MSP 3 or 6 are hard to come by for decent prices.

      Dude, get the GTi. Vw's interiors are very nice. Plus, you will get about 23-25 in the city I would bet. My brother had a 2003, and man that thing was quick. He put lowering springs on it and a bit wider tires and the thing STUCK. i bet then it would rival the 8's handling.

      Yeah, i go to court for my ticket from the accident, not sure how i am going to plead... I tried making an appointment with the State's Attorney so we could figure it out, but they wouldn't let me. So, I guess I see what tomorrow brings. I am basically going to tell them she crossed the line, and regardless of how fast I was going I would have neded in an accident, since it is a normal reaction to get out of the way of a 2 ton SUV coming at you.

      I hear ya! That would be nice to see, glory days do come and go. I remember for several years there back in the 90s when OU couldn't win a game to save their lives due to controversy and NCAA punishments. But they are back where they belong and still building as well. Just need to tweak the defense a bit. The offensive backfield goes deep so they should be set for a couple years or more, as they just reload, lol.

    • C16H14N2O

      10 years ago

      Yeah, gotta play the odds, lol. Need Texas to lose probably two games the way I see it and OU to run the table the rest of the season to give OU a chance at the Big 12 'ship', lol.

      I been keeping up with OU and college football since 1969 -- man! OU and Nebraska used to have killer games.

    • C16H14N2O

      Great! I bleed red too, haha. smiley8.gif

      Yeah, Nebraska I figured would be a lot better than up to now, but yeah we have a few more games to battle through to see who reaches the conference championship. It's still up in the air to pick who the teams may be. And yeah, that OSU/Missouri game was a doozy. We'll see how Missouri bounces back against Texas... I'm pulling for Mizzou, lol.

      And it might be Nebraska and OU, like old days, lol... but I'm getting ahead of myself.. we'll let the games play out and see.

      Doubtful. The final file size was too unmanageable; it was several GB(5-6), and made everything run unimaginably slow. I did get the chance to print out the final in grayscale at 4x12 or something like it. I know I still have all the original RAW files of the separate images, but I don't think I kept the master. Mainly because I figured I could do it again, but better.

      That was definitely a bad idea to begin with. Now I limit my panoramas a bit more.

    • foehammer27

      10 years ago

      I ended up with a stitched landscape from the Continental Divide this summer, that was about 18 images wide and 6 tall. But since the overlap needs to be between 30-50%, it comprised of far more than 150 images. But it was awesome. Getting edges right is tough. It usually requires some Pshopping. But as long as you have a decent overlap, you can make it work.

    • foehammer27

      10 years ago

      It's not too terribly difficult, but definitely not easy. And you have a DSLR, which makes things, well, possible. All you need to do is set up your shot with a tripod, and get three identical shots, save for the exposure time. Make sure all the other settings are static, so shoot manually without autofocus.

      One will blow the bright areas, but get the detail of the dark areas.
      Another needs to be a short exposure to capture the bright areas, but will leave the dark areas black.
      Then get one in the middle. It won't be pretty, but it doesn't matter.

      If you have Photoshop, you can use the HDR tool to glue them together.

    • foehammer27

      Many thanks. Finding the setting took a while, but the Art Museum seemed like a good place. I'll hopefully be doing some sweet HDR stuff in the museum parking garage soon.

      Mine was about $80. And they are pretty easy to install but it helps to have another person to help line it up evenly. If one person grabs either side you can pretty much just stick it right on. Although you could probably do it all by yourself with little effort. You just need to make sure its on straight. I have heard that www.InvisibleMask.com has some good deals on them. But I have never visited that site so don’t quote me on that.

      Nice. I need to do this to my car... I have LED brake and tail lights, but the turn signals are incandescent. I have what is called a "city light" too which is basically a driving light. I am thinking about changing it to a blue LED. Should look pretty mean. I can't figure out if I want to do all my accent lighting in blue or red... I like red interior accent lights, but for the exterior I think I would like blue.

      The only reason I can't do anything is because she won't do anything. I can't press the charges, she has to, and she refuses. I don't know why, the only answer I could get out of her is because "I am not a nark". I don't understand. She let the easiest way we could bust them pass last night. It would have been perfect. Since, 2 of the 3 were underage, and the one thats over age didn't really do anything (but he still didn't do anything to stop it), we could have had the cops bust the room. Yes, its not for the specific thing, but IMO, that would have been enough revenge.

      I am going to go talk to a cop Tuesday without her knowing, because I want to know if there is anything I can do about it, or if its all up to her.

      Ummm, I was on my motorcycle, heading home from visiting my brother, he lives about 1 hour to 1:15 away, and all the sudden a crazy storm blew up. I could tell it was gonna be a big one, so I kicked it up a notch, and as it got closer and closer I went faster and faster, to the point where there was lightning flashes about every 2 seconds, and the winds were picking up greatly and the temperatures were dropping significantly, and i was going balls out. I ended up getting clocked at 95 in a 55. That is what the court dates and lack of license are all about. The cop showed no mercy, and I got caught in hail, and a tornado (or funnel cloud sighting), while on the bike.

      In illinois, 40 over is a Class A misdemeanor... 1 step below a felony. Punishable by up to 364 days in prison and thousands of dollars in fines. So, my lawyer is attempting to get the speed on the ticket lowered, even 1 mph to keep the misdemeanor off my record. If it does go on there (which it won't) I can kiss most careers I have been thinking of goodbye.

      yeah, the only reason it has that bumper, and the reason it looks so wrong, is because it's off of a Civic.

I looked up the stock bumper, and several aftermarket ones and it should only run me $100-130 for parts.
