    • ANOTHER fucking journal entry...

      Ok heres the scoop... I need a new ringtone for my phone:
      I have a smartphone and I can make ANYTHING into a ringtone. The easiest way if its a movie or something that might be hard to work with is just play it on my PC and then use the phones voice recorder to capture it. However the phone program wll even play songs that have a the "plays-for-sure" DMR attached to them.. Who woulda thought?
      Anyway...

      I am holding a contest:
      The person that can come up with an awesome song, movie clip, quote, piece of freaking poetry, or anything else that I use for my ringtone will receive 5 mods. 5 may not seem like much but here the kicker:
      I have DOZENS of contacts each of which can have their own ringtone... So suggest as many things as you want... If I use it you WILL receive 5 mods... Once again they can be ANYTHING (a link to where the sound can be obtained if it is unusual should be included... if its a quote I ccan record it myself). They can be funny ironic or anything else... Vulgar ones might have less of a chance if they are really offensive (because this phone is used at work). To give you some ideas here are the sorts of people who might be calling me

      Personal
      The usual... Friends, family, people who want to kill me.

      Non-personal
      Boss
      Lawers
      Business partener
      Engineers
      Co-Workers


      Also:
      I just finished reading Certain Prey and Mortal Prey Both part of the popular "prey" series by John Sandford (who would have guessed?!). Go buy them.. They are awesome (get the free Microsoft Reader and you can download the e-Book versions from Amazon as I did... It works on PCs and pocket pcs.. Also they are cheap). I am sure all the "prey" books are awesome but these are the only ones I read. Also these have to be the best because they have an ass-kicking hitwomen in them though in the end.. Err... Um.. Nevermind.
      P.S: The books should be read in the order I listed them...

    • Why?

      Why am I pulling another all-nighter? I just can't fall asleep (it 4:40am my timefor those on different time)

    • Wrecked!

      13 years ago

      duncan_stive

      I got my Mustang in a wreck again... For the first time EVER it wasn't my fault. Here is the scoop:

      Just got back from work when I get a call from my mom asking if I can drive my sister 45 minutes each way to her job as a guide for whitewater rafting trips. She had just found out she had to work and my friend had just um *AHEM* burned up the transmission in my mom' truck (see the journal of MMSHer) since she stays several days at a time where she works my mom wanted to have my sisters car (when not working my sister lives at home). So in short they wanted me to drive her out there. She would take us out to eat, We could swim and she would pay gas. So why not?
      The trip to my mom's is a little twisty and fun to drive (she lives WAY out) so I am heading out there with MMSHer who was coming to swim, have fun, etc. About 2/3 of the way there some dick is driving around a turn in MY lane forcing me off the road a bit... My bald tires did not help as I struggled to gain control of a 55Mph Mustang slinding in the grass... It is not nearly as bad as some of the crap I have done but less luckily located: The car is fish tailing back and forth, striking a fence post (with the back of the car) before eventually coming to a rest agaisnt the woven wire fence (now facing the wrong way and not on the road (excpet for a small corner). I notice it is running roughly and then stalls so I restart it and cannot get any RPMs at all and it soon stalls again... With the help of a few people who stop we push the car onto the road and then debate why the heck in wont start (things seem quite serious at this point). Fortunatly the problem turned out to be more minor than I could have hoped when a macho looking, but friendly, guy stopped and informed us that ford had a sensor which disabled the fuel pump if it sensed an impact... He located the reset button in the truck and started up just great... So I did the good citizen thing and called the cops... The car that ran us off the road DID NOT stop (even though I would certainly think they heard our tires squealing if nothing else). I doubt the cops will spend much (if any) time looking for the bastard seeing as all I got as he went past was that it was an older light blue half ton pick-up... There are A LOT of cars like that around here.
      Not so bad after all.. To body panels will need replacing, a wheel and the windshield is cracked at the corner from the vibration so I will just file an insurance claim which will get everything fixed like new for $500 (plus a 10% rate hike I suspect but oh well)... Still we were delayed enough that there was no way to get in any swimming.. Which kind of blew but oh well.

      I was going to make another journal but my last 2 only have a few comments each so I have decided... Um wait.. Oh.. RIIIIGHT... *AHEM*

      In other news a pulled an all-nighter last night/today for absolutly no other reason than not feeling tired... So far it is 8AM and I am still not tired.. Wierd. I wonder if I will be tired later?

      Doing some research on the latest in wireless technology I ran across something kind of interesting:
      Is there any such thing as TOO cheesy and melodramatic for the Japanese?

      The video is a short fictional clip made my Japan's largest wireless carrier "docomo" which is ment to show their vision for the future of wireless (in 2010 it would seem). Their ideas are kind of neat but the films "storyline" is, well... Just watch it and you'll see what I mean.

    • $7,000,000 spent on...?

      13 years ago

      duncan_stive

      You may have seen this in Burnie's journal but its worth repeating:
      "(they) got OWNED I saw it... FUCKING OWNED"

      Basicly some "experts" got paided enough money a few people to retire in reletive luxury for the rest of their lives to give congress some false information about how "terrorists" were making "plug-ins" for games (I think they mean "mods") that allowed people to kill US soldiers and they were using these "plug-ins" as a recruitment tool for they're terror groups.. Man that sounds bad.. Except that the video they dug up was so obviously not from a mod it wasn't even funny... It was a machimia which obviously displayed a "created with fraps" and www.fraps.com message thoughout the whole thing (did they think "fraps" was the name of a terror group?!). And finally Get this:

      THE AUDIO WAS CLIPS FROM TEAM AMARICA WORLD POLICE ... Wow some abso-fucking-lutly unbelievable research went into that... I mean how some "experts" could think that clips from team amarica: world police were not ment as a joke (and that none of them had even SEEN that movie"?!) Is jus insane.... The government seriously needs to give me back some of my damm tax dollars for an "idiot" refund...

    • AWESOMENESS!

      13 years ago

      duncan_stive

      I have an AWESOME new website created via Office Live... Well The website itself is bland and uniteresting (basicly filler incase anyone decides to look up our domain that they find from our email addresses). But its the features you get when you are logged in that are so cool: They have this freaking awesome sarea where you can upload any kind of documents and other users can view and/or make changes (depending on the level of their accounts). It is SOO freaking cool.. Also we have email accounts.. I would give out the domain but some wierdo would get the contact information and call my business parteners on their cell phones or something.. Thus you will have to find it the old fashion way: Via google!

      Seriously though.. Do a search for office live and get you own domain (actually as many as you want) and all these other freaking awesome features for free (during the beta).

    • New phone...

      13 years ago

      duncan_stive

      I recently (at the demands of my business parteners and employer) purchased new cell phone service from Cingular. My old service was not working which itself is a long story: To try making it short.. My Cellular One service quite roaming (anywhere off of their home network the service did not work). They filed a crapload of trouble tickets which never did anything and stilled wanted me to pay for the service which was nto working... I have filed complaints with the FCC, the FTC, the consumer protection agency, the attorney general and the BBB.. I am still waiting t hear their respons. In the mean time I needed a phone so I picked up a Cingular.. I sold my Dell AXIM to a friend and bought a smartphone that had all the features I need and more. So far I am quite pleased with my new toy...

      It smallish:
      14smikj.jpg
      (thats a triple A for scale)

      It has a cool slide open keyboard:
      14so41i.jpg

      It runs Windows Mobile 5.0 which is much nicer than the Pocket PC 2003 SE my old unit had (which was still nice) as it features a progress bar for the web broswer and integrated IM/mail application and a "zoom level" setting for the broswer.. that way people with 20-20 vision (like yours truly) can see a lot more on the screen by zooming out.
      Also it of course runs Windows Media player and supports Plays-For-Sure (which is used by the music stores I use)
      14smmgn.jpg

      Naturally extra storage is a must.. Hence this mini SD slot
      14smrti.jpg
      Mini SD card come in sizes up to 2GB and the 2 gig ones are only $60 on eBay.. I'll be buying one soon I am sure.

      A short (and not comprehensive) list of other features followed by a random sort of isometric shot:

      Wi-fi (G not B.. w00t!)

      Bluetooth (no stero headset profile? WTF.. I guess I cn download one as soon as I buy a stereo bluetooth headset)

      EDGE (speeds up to 476.5Kbs... You never get that but Cingular is better than cell one: $30 a month ulimited vs. $80 and speeds of around 140K vs. 50 or 60K)

      1.3 megapixel camara with flash and autofocus (don't laugh.. one of the phones I looked at didn't HAVE autofocus)

      A cool retracibke stylus

      Also did I mention it has a phone to? LOL. With, I might add, LIMITLESS options for ringtones.. You can use pretty much any file format as long as its noise.. My current ringtone? A grunt yelling widly "HORRIBLE BAD NASTY THINGS WITH TEETH AND CLAWS AND... AHHHHAHAHA"

      Except for a few exceptions:
      When my mom calls it play her favorite song, when my friend calls Marv from Sin City says in a gravelly voice "I know know its pretty damm wierd to eat people" and when my business partener calls a grunt yells "Whos the winner? OH yeah it US!" (a hopeful message about being successful at business)
      14smutg.jpg
      Bonus points (as in mods) If you know what book that is... Afew more if you've read it. It owns. (no micheal you DO NOT qualify.. seeing as it is STILL sitting on the floor of out SHARED house.. LOL)

      Finally: the image quality from the camara seems pretty good andheres a pic so you can judge for yourself:
      14snwog.jpg
      God I look like that freaking dork from Fight Club... My hair should have been cut months ago... I am totally gonna have to post some pics after my hair is cut and when I am NOT looking like the worlds biggest dork just so you guys and (more importantly.. LOL) girls stop thinking I AM the workds biggest dork...
      Oh well.. Hey wait! I just posted a long assed journal entry about my new PHONE.. Maybe I AM the workd biggest dork.. Wait.. I didnt just say that..
      Alright.. Hitting submit before I do some more damage...

      Hugo Chavez isn't paranoid. He's quite smart actually. By playing the fear card, he can make the USA his enemy. When people are afraid of something, they'll fall for anything (ie. him). He just wants them to ignore all of Venezuela's problems that he hasn't dealt with: poverty, environmental devastation, and the highest gun murder death rate on the planet!

      You know. I wouldn't normally do it but I really needed all the help I could get on my wish. And I really mean all the help I could get. But that should be the last one. And I agree that it's BS. I've gotten it in my e-mail before and I have the same responces as befor.

      Currently LA (Liberal Arts): Math + Science. Long story short, I'm thinking of beign a physics teacher. My nuclear physics is a bit fuzzy, though, and that's the main area that would be discussed about plasma technologies. I also took a chem class, which deals with many of the same ideas, but that's a tad fuzzy too.

      Eric IS on my friends list (Wanderlust) but he never updates his profile or anything like that. I don't know why he has an account. I'm a very honest, blunt person though. I wouldn't say anything on here that I wouldn't flat out say to his face (or already have said to his face).

      Also - he (eric) was driving with a busted headlight and no insuance for like a year, got stopped 3 or 4 times without getting a ticket. This was my first offense time.

      Well, we don't use Linux for everything. Our network is Linux based, but the workstations are all windows (and a couple macs). Linux is pretty much just running automatic processes, and the occasional program that I or another system administrator type is running.

    • Jonus

      13 years ago

      It really depends on how you use it. Here at work we run the latest version of Red Hat Linux, but I've never used a gui for it, except for one program that you pretty much have to. The GUI takes up a lot of space I guess. It's more efficiant to not run it.
