Sorry, but I haven't yet shared the information about myself that would typically display here. Check back later to see if that changes, or if I instead choose to remain an enigma.
Since I continue to be an awful correspondent and some of you may be interested.
For those of you who didn't read my previous blog post, yesterday school randomly called me and said, "Hey, APS is giving you a free laptop, come pick it up," so I was like "Sweet" and went to get it today. Here are some numbers:
Windows XP Pro SP3
1.59 GHz AMD Turion 64
1GB RAM, possibly 667MHz DDR2 SDRAM, but I dunno for sure
100GB hard drive
Nice battery life; this specs page says 4.5 hours, but mine is clearly a cheap knockoff of this model.
This site also claims it has an ATI Radeon X1250, which may or may not be true.
As some of you may have noticed, I've been AWOL for some time, so I figured I'd update everyone here. Apologies to everyone who's tried to get in contact with me, as I've been very spotty recently. I've had a lot more going on than I thought I would!
Christopher Paolini himself has called his utter travesty of a fantasy novel Eragon an “archetypal hero story,” but that doesn’t even begin to do it justice. To call it archetypal is a gross understatement; it’s more along the lines of nauseatingly generic, although even that barely scratches the surface. It may be true that there’s no such thing as a truly unique story and that all fantasy is derivative and so on and so forth, but Eragon doesn’t even try. It distills every last stereotype of the fantasy genre and jumbles them together into such a mind-numbingly formulaic product that Paolini must have written the book with a “Top 100 Fantasy Clichés” checklist at hand – but even that wouldn’t necessarily condemn it if it were in the
Lead vocalist Dead committed suicide in 1991 (two years after joining [Mayhem]) by shooting himself in the head; Hellhammer made a necklace using some of his skull fragments, and Euronymous reportedly cooked and ate pieces of Dead's brain. Euronymous, in turn, was stabbed to death while in his underwear on August 10, 1993, by the band's bass player, Count Grishnackh (born Christian Vikernes). Grishnackh's alleged motive was jealousy over the fact that Euronymous had a more evil reputation; he inflicted 23 separate wounds, it was also rumored, so as to outdo rival band Emperor's drummer, Faust, who was convicted in the stabbing death of a homosexual acquaintance. When police arrested Grishnackh, they found over 150 kg of stolen dynamite in his house, complete with a
I've been meaning to make a banner and stuff for it for ages. Now I have; hurrah. It doesn't look bad for the sporadic 20 minutes I spent on it, even if it bears only a vague resemblance to a star field. I <3 textured brushes.
Yikes, I've gotta hurry and learn HTML and some other programming languages before school starts again... I'm helping out with the robotics team's website for the FIRST competition, which starts as soon as school comes back in. I'm the only Photoshop nerd on the team, and someone has to do banners and things. That reminds me that I was going to design a banner for the site...hmmmm, I should get on that.
Robotics is for cool people. I'm going to be way overloaded this time, though, as I'm on three subteams...
