A General Update

So, to quickly recap somethings here...
I have a pearl grey RAZR, love it, but it needs work to make it perfect. I suggest a V3m or V3x, or just a regular V3 if you can find a shiny black. They are much easier and more fun to hack.

My Brother's Blood Machine was a bit disappointing, but overall I enjoyed the album enough to purchase it (and I got that sweet shirt as well, the one with the album art on it, the all-seeing eye.)

Ive modded the PS2slim to play games off of a run-of-the-mill Maxtor IDE hard drive. It isnt too hard, all you need is an external USB enclosure, the HDD, a copy of Swap Magic, a few handy apps, and some games to 'backup'. It works with NTSC/PAL/J-NTSC games, without the use of a modchip or soldering, how very convenient and safe :D

Firefox 2.0 is pretty good, Im noticing a bit less mem leak, and still a good amount of compatibility for plugins/etc, and a built-in spell checker, fucking saves my life sometimes!

The new releases of Azureus and Bitcomet torrent clients aren't all that handy, though. I reccomend using older versions if you can. Also, I recommend doanloading Peer Guardian 2 if you torrent, and maybe CCleaner if you browse the internet a lot. Also, TuneXP isnt too bad if you would like to optimize your WinXP install -- sorry I dont have any links for any of these great apps, but some clever Google usage may unearth good things. The devs for Peer Guardian are called 'Phoenix Labs' so only download Peer Guardian from the 'Phoenix Labs' webpage to ensure a virus/malware-less installer.

Soon enough the prices for AMD's Opteron (939 and 940 socket, dual or single core offerings for both) will come crashing down, reports tell me that we may be able to find Opteron 170s as low as 180USD, and 165s as low as 150USD. (both socket 939)
Both of these CPUs overclock very modestly and, In my opinion, are a much better buy than the Athlon X2 chips. They were made for serving, so multi-tasking is where their performance really shines, but running a FSB of 300mHz with a multiplier of x8, x8.5, x9, or even x9.5, I dont think much in that price range can even TOUCH the processing capabilities of that. However, to get these dual core units up about 2.9-3.0gHz, water cooling, and in some rare cases, even PHASE CHANGE cooling is necessary to keep core temps at a minimum (remember this new technology has one drawback, a low tolerance for temperature... Most techies will tell you to keep the dual core Athlon/Opteron CPUs under 65 degrees at full load torture, and then under 45 idle, based on an ambient temp of 32-35C.)

What else is their to quickly update upon... Well bejeweled is officially the MOST addicting flash/cellphone game Ive even played, Im playing it all the, when Im not playing PS2 games off my HDD (no load times woo woo)

I haven't heard much else of any real notability, so until my next update...

.\\ Finally! my desktop did have an older version of my index page, so I got my content back! Score one for me, and take that 'ya fucking internet. Not much else to write about ehre, so I'll leave it at that. Maybe some day I'll get those forums back up, abnd get a blog for this page; then fix the film blog as well...


.\\ Aha an update before the end of the month, INSANITY I TELL YOU! PURE SHENANIGANS! Anyways, not much to report, Im lazy and bored right now, although I SHOULD be studying for that calc Final on Saturday... Either way, meh! The car is doing well, except for the squealing noise when driving in the cold. Hellsing is out tomorrow! I can not wait! As of now I have watched more anime than I ever thought possible. 162 eps of Naruto (patiently awaiting the 163rd), 3 seasons of Initial D (plus one movie and one OAV), 6 eps of Samurai Champloo, and about 60 eps of Rurouni Kenshin. All of that in the past couple of months. I guess watching free fan subbed anime on my 19'' monitor is better than watching pathetic American tv on my television. :D - Well that is all for now, until next time, have a Merry X-mas, a KraZy KawanZa, a Happy Chanukah, and a solemn and dignified Ramadan; and say no to RICE. Also: Fuck ASU, Fuck their parking and transit Department, Fuck Discount Tire Co., and Fuck pronouncing AeonFlux right. (its actually 'E-on', rather than my preferred way of saying 'AY-on')


.\\ Ok so I was not going to do a full news update, but its seems in the 3 days I slacked off on doing a half-assed update, I accumulated enough going-ons to necessitate a 'real' update. First, I got the lowering springs on the Grand Am. About a week ago I had totally given up hope on this damn car since everything seems to be falling apart lately, and I constantly bitch about how much money it is costing me. However, I did not stop to think that I can just replace each thing that is broken, one part at a time, slowly but surely and all that jazz. Besides, my car is basically my only hobby, so why not spend a large percent of my income on the damn thing. So next up is a new set of tires, I'm thinking 225/45R17 Kumho Ecstas. However, I may go with the 215/50R17 since I had a 215mm wide tire on the stock rims, and looking at those, they are quite wide enough.

Anyways, I'm willing to bet most people don't care about my little Pontiac shitbox, so onto some other news-y stuffs.

I have come to realize, just now, that people with one hand must really be pissed off. Why? Simply because one hand washes the other. If you think about it, that lame little cliche is quite correct; you rub your one hand with your other one, it is nearly impossible to wash one hand by itself.
I know that is horrendously random, but bare with me here, it gets better...

Have you ever wondered why Necrophilia is usually associated with having sex with the dead? Well, necrophilia actually means more broadly 'to have a fondness for corpses or the dead', but today it is always used in reference to raping a corpse.
But if you think about it, since there are necrophiliacs out there, they just LOVE the dead, they are fascinated with corpses for some sick reason. However, if you just chill with a dead person, it isn't that fun; they cant do much, since they are dead. (see where I'm going with this?) -- You can't play chess with a dead person, they cant play chess! They have a physical inability to play a game of chess due to their death.
The only thing a dead person can do is get raped... however, it isn't rape, since they cant say no. See? Its all good...

Now that you most likely think I'm one sick individual, I bid you ado. And don't forget, 12.19.05 the new Hellsing OVA is released in Japan, so expect those DVDrip torrents to follow close behind :D


.\\ Ah yes, nearly a month later. I may make a habit of this, monthly updates seem to be working out well XD
Anyways, I have been doing a bit of cleaning up around the site, the forums are dead, for some reason the MySQL database shit the bed... I may attempt to fix that in the near future. My blogs are left half finished since I'm extremely lazy, and b2evo sucks ass.
The car still has 2 different sets of rims on it, lol ricer lol
Uhmm... Also I should have the full tale of the dreaded camping trip up here soon, I just need to resize the pics so I don't get yelled at by slow DSL users or those few 56kers left out there. So many pics, nearly 100 from one digi cam, not to mention the other sources. So keep your fingers crossed for that.

That is all for now, happy halloween and don't do drugs. Unless its crack in a can XD

psst, that's an inside joke, psst.


.\\ So that is my bad for not updating in nearly a month, but things are always busy over here and my poor domain gets neglected. I am revamping a few areas of the site, namely the forums, links, and contact info areas. Links are now up, and anyone can link to me, or ask that I like to them, link exchanges are fun :D
In other news, recently I have been working on a few pages that are not my own, a few for work, a few for friends. Etc, etc.
The first of which is, as you can clearly see these guys need some major help, yeesh! Not to mention, these guys have yahoo web hosting, oh noes!!!1!1!11!11!!2
Keep checking those sites as well for updates, since I have some new content and new layouts for each web site, that I hope will go public by the end of this week.
I would like to end this update with some hope for the future, since I am taking nothing but night courses during my next semester at ASU, that will hopefully give me more time during the day to maintain this site.


.\\ Ok, the transfer has not gone smoothly, as some may have noticed, but it is near completion. Also, the forums are beginning to take shape, as well as my blog and php-nuke tools. A lot of spiffy content and shit is on the horizon! And I'm slowly learning how to port forward and use php and mysql. This is nuts.
Also, I just got Neverwinter Nights Platinum, so that will indefinitely slow down my progress. And a big thanks to Laurels for helping me transfer the domain, as well as teaching me so much along the way. Laurels = (Best)^infinity.


.\\ I am currently under going a domain transfer since Name Secure is a subpar service, and Lauren has enlightened my ignorant ways. She has shown me the shiny path to salvation, and it leads right to Influx Web Hosting. These guys kick ass, and I've already partially set up a forum, as well as some other bitchin' new features. Stay tuned for more info. :D


.\\ I have added a bunch of new stuff to the Coheed page, and I have begun putting the various theories and interpretations together, email me or aim me if I left anything out or something... Also, I have begun work on the section of my site for my car. I know there is a great need for pictures on this site, and I shall be getting some soon.


.\\ I finally broke down and got my own domain like all the cool kids... Keep checking back for my awesome random updates and the such...
