      ^forgot what I was going to make the title... LOL

      Well... I am guessing it is time for a new journal entry because my last one has a bunch of comments... And I KNOW everyone is just DYING to see another new alert on their watch list from me [/sarcasm]

      Anyway: Tonight I decided to eat... This is of note because it seems that is something I seldom do and even more rarely in any quanity. I was quite hungry though so I cooked ribeye steak, portabela mushrooms and giant baked potatos with cheese and bacon in them... I have not had such a good meal in awhile but I think I almost killed myself by eating to much (anyone know 50LD for steak is?)...
      NOTE TO SELF: Next time... NOT going shopping when you are very hungry.

      Now for my next topic: I have recently been having a blast at work because they decided to build something NEW... For those of you that don't know: I am an engineer there and work in electronic maintnence. My job TYPICALLY involves dianosing and repairing electronic equipment used in the manufacturing proccess... Technically the design of new equipment is also covered but since we are woefully understaffed (the maintence dept includes 10 people if you include mechanical and housekeeping but electronic only includes 3 people and only myself and one other guy can do the really advanced stuff... This is down from 5 people at one point one of whom was a truely brilliant engineer and also an insane workaolic) and they refuse to spend any signifiacnt money on capital equipment most of the time new stuff is seldom ever built...
      So.. I was quite excited when we decided to build a new "activator"... Now I am not sure what an activator is actually needed for but I know what it does... It basicly is a collection of power supplies that produce different voltages for different periods of time... But since the length of time can be pretty long and no one wants to stand there all day they need to change voltages and stuff in an automated fashion... My excitment stems from the fact that they were actually going to spend some cash on this and I managed convince everyone to go for me "feature creep" design... Including shiny new power supplies controlled by a programable logic controller with a 5in touch panel interface. In fact almost unbelievably the manager who's dept this is for (hence out of his budget) actually excaimed "wow that cheap" when I gave him one of the many purchase reqs to sign (this one for $500)...

      ANYWAY... Now for the point of this: The touch panel I bought allows you to assosiate sound with almost any type of event (it has a speaker) so I decided to make it amusing I am going to have it play various quotes from movies, games and RvB for different events... Some selections so far:

      EVENT: Operator attempts to run a program for the wrong type of tube (a text based error message will ask them if they are sure they want to)
      QUOTE: WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING?!
      FROM: Cortana in Halo 1 when you kill capt keys

      EVENT: Error (power supply overvoltage or undervoltage, arc, exsessive current draw, etc)
      QUOTE: Error, Error, Errror Err...
      FROM: Lopez in RvB after the bomb goes off (when his head is sitting on the sand)

      EVENT: Program start (each of the 6 programs will be given a name)
      QUOTE: Program alice activated
      FROM: The resident Evil DVD

      EVENT: Reset after error
      QUOTE: (this one is a little obscure.. Most of the operators won't get it but it will be funny none the less) Shield recharging sound.
      FROM: Halo... Der..

      So heres where you come in: I need some awesome/funny quotes ideas for other events... Suggest one that I wind up using and get some mods (bonus points if you can link a sound file but thats not required). Here are a few other events I will need some stuff for... I might think of more later):

      EVENT: Program start
      NEEDED: Anything with a name in it and a reference to starting... I need 5 of these (I have 6 progrmas that can be run and I have one already)

      EVENT: Proccess complete.
      NEEDED: Anything funny with a reference to something being done.

      Anything else funny... I am sure I will; have tons of other events so just pick something you think would be amusing..

      Anyway... I have a bunch of mods so it could be worth your while to find some cool quotes (though it may be awhile before I distribute them because I have to decide which ones to use and it will be awhile before I get to that part of the project..

      Thats all for now... Later bitches!

      My computer works better now that it has a cooling fan again... Also: I can now touch it WHILE it is operating.

      Also: If you know where I got the title (sans googling) from you are one old skool mofo.

      EDIT: AIM has the most annoying adds EVER.... They expand when your mouse goes over them and then remain on top of all other windows until you click on the AIM window again.. The net effect being that if you have the AIM window up and your mouse happens to go over it the annoying ad gets in your face and you have to pay attention to it enough to select the AIM window just to get rid of it... Of course what marketers should know by now is that annoying advertising makes people DISLIKE your product...

      Oh good..


      Its over... Sadly I did not win (lilshorty... You made me cry!) but I can't help but let out a tiny evil laugh for the sheer brilliance of my plan: Enter someone in a contest without their consent which makes them LOSE all their mods if they lose and which causes no ill effects to me if they win... AND I am getting OH SO CLOSE to being level 50... FTW.. i think about that everyday you know...
      "OMG my life would be SOO good if only I were level 50 on RvB!"
      LOL

      Anyway... Thanx to all you that participated and to those who did not: You are all destined to the dungons in the darkest pits of DOOM (TM) when I take over the world... On the plus side thats how you will know I have taken over: You will suddenly find yourself in a dungon in the darkest pits of doom... VERY convient...

      I actually met some cool new people who I had never talked to before (I THINK anyway) as a result of this contest... Meet (though many of you already have):
      Halo-fangirl (she is crazy... But also crazy cool) and Fluffsman (who is also crazy cool... And SOOO not doomed to the pits... Sorry Halo-fangirl).

      Anyway... Its now past sleep time for me and I STILL did not get the stuff done I wanted to get done (some of them sort of important... Like showering. Also: eating)... So... Have a fun... Tuesday and let me and tell me about the crazy wild partying you did this weekend...

      Up to 355... But unfortunately michael is getting modded by horrible enemies of justice everywhere and is up to 405... Now he has gotten fewer mods then me but not enough fewer... So... Looks like I may "lose" unless someone comes though in a big way smiley4.gif

      ALSO: This whole thing was the product of a very late night conversationg in a slap happy mood on IM... I have never done anything like it and I knew the whole time it skated on the edge of the rule of the site... Since the rules are open to a bit of interperatation depending on who is applying them I am getting a bit nervious because with large mod transactions occuring I will probably have tons of moderators sniffing around... Thus I would ask this of one of you:

      Please comment here if this is OK or not... That way if it IS I will know and so will the participants and if its not I will take it down.

      THANKS.

    • MODS!

      12 years ago

      ____

      Michael is a mod whore... On his last profile he was a "mod virgin" and never KEPT any mods... Now he keeps them and refuses to give out any... Even ONE.

      So heres the deal: He has agreed (in a sort of a bet) to give EVERY LAST SHINY ONE to Lisa if I can get DOUBLE to number of mods he has in the next two days starting when this entry is posted.... He currently has 347 and I have 276... So as of today I would need 694 however if HE gets any that number goes up... Theres one catch though: I am not allowed to trade money or any tangible items for mods. Now I am sure Lisa will give me her 80 mods (because she will GET all of his) but that still leaves me about 338 short... Now askign fro mods is not allowed so I will just leave you guys with 2 final thoughts:

      1: If I suddenly had 700 mods I am sure I would be VERY liberal with giving them out.
      2. The new version of the site is coming and all your mods will go away soon anyway.

      Happy modding... Er.. I mean have a good weekend!

    • Dear Diary...

      ____

      Today I tried to kill my Jeep and also myself...

      I know everyone may be sick of reading about my offroading exploits but this was pretty crazy.

      Basically I was bored and felt like going somewhere cool but then I dicked around to long so I decided to go to the Daniel Boone national forest (not that that isn't cool.. I just go there all the freaking time) and go offroading for a bit...
      This should give you an idea of why I felt like going down some cool new trail I had never been on... It started out OK with us (Michael and I) heading in the way we always do:
      Hill.jpg
      The Hill is basically just what it sound likes... A steep grassy hill I like to drive up and back down its right near the entrance (the photo is a screenshot from my GPS) back a bit from this hill is an awesome little waterfall and flat area for camping and such.

      We continued on down the main trail (apparently named Dry Fork School Road though even the main trail is hardly a "road"... Oddly almost all the trails appeared on the map and most were called "roads" though they would be better called "4-wheeler ruts in woods which are not wide enough for normal vehicles")

      Firstcrossingtorivercrossing.jpg

      The "crossings" are fords over streams (not any trouble to get across now) and the river crossing is a cement ford over "Horse Lick Creek" (not shown on map) which is fairly big with a lot of water in it (bigger, oddly, then the dix RIVER which is near here and almost as big as the Rockcastle river which I think it becomes). Anyway the "river crossing way point is basically where we left the areas we had been before (the breaks in the track show where satellite reception was lost... Driving near cliffs and under trees makes it sort of shitty). Going left down to the river was a coolish trail (the right fork is awesome and leads eventually to an old shack in the woods) crossing the river was no problem (there are cement thingies on the riverbed to make it easier here) and we start down the trail... Aside from being painfully narrow in places (clearly only meant for ATVs) it was OK at first.. Then things started to get interesting... The track got even narrower and there were many big muddy holes and sandy pits (some of which we cautiously enjoyed given our lack of really good mud tires). I marked waypoints for the coolest of them

      Untitled.jpg

      It was all fun though and the jeep again showed its awesomeness as we did not really run into any trouble other then the normal bottoming out and having to maneuver among closely spaced trees...

      Then things got REALLY interesting and those of you who have seen the movie serenity will remember Washes definition of "interest"... Yep... THAT kind of interesting.... We approached another collection of muddy pits with tracks going everywhere... Aside from being bigger than normal it looked like nothing special... I was weaving among the trees toward a puddle slightly narrower than the jeep and about 30 feet long. I comment "I should probably not go in there but I seem to be...." I stop talking because at that instant I enter the "puddle" which turns out to be a massive pit filled to the top with slimy mud... One edge of the jeep instantly sunk up to the driver side mirror while the other side was doing some other shit (I have no idea because I could not see much other than a sea of nasty goo)... Michael announces that we are "screwed" and I tactly admit that it was "a little deeper than it looked".
      So now we are sitting in a sea of mud seeming to have absolutely no chance of getting out... Our shovels are not in the car and neither is our rope (some of you may remember our contraption that broke my fingers the last time I got stuck) I rev the engine and it doesn't do crap... The wheel don't even seem to be spinning.. (of course I can't see mine.. They are deeply buried) but I ask Michael what HIS are doing and he says they don't seem to be moving either.. I am just starting to think "shit.. I broke something" when I realize I had put it in park.. DER...
      Don't you just hate it when it says... Continued in comments...

    • A handful of gritty survivors...

      12 years ago

      ____
      Were able to keep the legions of the infected radio-active undead at bay using only their wits and an inexplicable knowledge of agricultural sciences


      For some reason that quote kept coming to mind thoughout the movie as I was watching 28 Weeks Later.
      Those of you who have seen the suprisingly little known (it is well known.. Just not as much as it should be given how good it is) 28 Days Later know it was one of the better Zombie movies.... Topped perhaps only by the remake of Dawn of the Dead and better than Day of the Dead or Land of the Dead... Of course it is not a TRUE Zombie movie as the "Zombies" don't technically DIE before becaming consumers of flesh... They just get infected with the "rage" virus (for some reason one of the most memorable lines ever from a movie was the opening scene of 28 days later when the PETA nubs are letting the infected monkies out and he demands of the lab tech "WHAT!? WHAT ARE THEY INFECTED WITH?!" and the guy stares at him and replies "Rage"... AWESOMENESS on a stick).
      Anyway... 28 Weeks Later opens with scenes from shortly after the outbreak and proceeding forward eventually stopping at 28 weeks later: The "Zombies" have starved to death and the US army is repopulating england with people that escaped and other people... A very realistic portral of how a situation like this might actually unfold citizens are shepared onto and island in a river in london (district 1 they call it) and told they must not leave until the clean up is complete (no zombie are there but they claim therre but they warn of "wild dogs and rats".. There are also bodies and and stuff which might be able to cause infection). The island is gaurded and no one is permitted to leave... Anyway.. Some kids arrive there to meet there dad who is already there... The mom has supposedly died but when the kids manage to sneak off the island and return to their house they meet someone they did not expect. As you might imagine things rapidly go from good to completely fucked in everyway shape and form... Pretty much standard fare (though the plot is far form unoriginal) but it is the execution that REALLY shines: Exellent acting, Directing which is nothign short of phenomonal and great music that really adds to the atmosphere... Not to mention great combat (both physical and phycological) between the non-zombies (really the key to any good zombie film.

      I give 28 Week Later 5 out of 5 stars and I intend to see it again soon.
      smiley9.gifsmiley9.gifsmiley9.gifsmiley9.gifsmiley9.gif

      On a side note: For those of you who think I never give a shitty review and love every movie thats is because I only review the awesome ones... I carefully select what I want to see and even so most movies I see don't get a review... Also if you watch the piece of shit I saw last night you are a retard.. Only problem? I am not gonna tell you what it was called... I guess you'll just have to find out yourself (like I did.. want my 3 and a half fucking hours back)

      the part about the pocket PC's was referring to the comment on your journal that you made (i should have pointed that out) and to be honest i didn't particularly explain my point very well. what i mean to say is that those pocket PC's are designed to be used for internet and the lark. that is their purpose. the iphone is designed to actually be a phone, as well as have these extra feature that appeal to, generally, hardcore business mean who have to know everything at that precise second, or face losing millions of <insert currency here> . to this end i think that to compare the pocket PC and the iphone wouldn't be wise as they themselves are built for different purposes and it is expected that the pocket pc would have higher processors, ram, memory, etc as they are built for that purpose.

      i do appreciate the argument, and thank you for using the correct grammar...you would be surprised at the debates i have had where i just couldn't read what they were saying. and in addition that you seem to know what to know what you are talking about (again, it happens a lot) but i do fear that past instances involving the ipods "technical issues" have given you a slight prejudice against them. but anyways. ill see you around i guess!

      I agree. While Hydrogen is promising it's still 30 years from mass-production. Nuclear Electricity + Electric Cars is a far cheaper, easier, and better source of energy. You should watch the documentary "Who Killed the Electric Car?" which offers some fascinating insights on why the Electric car failed. It's quite critical of Arnold's Hydrogen Highway, arguing that Electric is available right now, not 30 years from now.

    • TCR

      Actually, Arnold has suffered his greatest defeats by acting brash and being himself. His 2005 Special Election nearly crippled him and put his popularity in the low 30's. Now, he advocates consensus and working with both parties. I say "now" because I don't trust him to stay this way for one minute.

      But, when he ran for re-election he barely acknowledged that he was a Republican and championed a platform of mainly Democratic ideals. Combined with the fact that the Democrats nominated the worst possible candidate to face him, he won re-election easily. However, California voters are picky people. They love him, they hate him, they love him again. Moods shift frequently in this state.
