Update time (continued).






Me and my brother have been playing around with some adobe. I originally made a top for the site. Which he then elaborated on. Both are on file, I would really enjoy it if you people would be nice enough to AOL Instant Message me at "JustAnotheRunner" and tell me which image you would prefer to see on the new site. Mine.(Darker Image) Jay's (Lighter Image) We then combined forces further to create the image you see above the post. He taught me a lot of shit I can do with adobe. And I taught him how to work with fonts and where stuff looks cool. We have a few projects we will be doing in the future while im at home and I will be adding an art section to the site.

Update time

Well, Archives are up and working. We moved the server to unix-based, there are some other lovely attributes to our move, none of which I have put to memory. On the bad side, either I am retarded or CHMOD'ing still does not work. Which means that the people providing our service must not be expecting any "real" business, and I cannot comprehend why this would be. Also, now that I'm back on my 19" CRT, I see that my colors are a bit lighter then on my LCD at college. So I redid my color scheme.

*Blaze2008 says: CHMODing is setting people's permissions up to view/edit files differently. I truely wasn't trying to be a pretentious nerd here, I just didn't analyze my audience. (Actually, who knows, maybe I was trying to be pretentious. Blaze2003 is a dick.)

Great beginning to finals week

Quick update. I just got back from failing my CS163 final. If things don't start looking up I figure I can go be a garbage man for the rest of my life. And if you see me today. Don't talk to me.

*Blaze2008 says: Wow, please keep in mind this is a blog my mom reads. How sad. :-(

Great beginning to finals week

Great start to my first college final. I figured I would wake up at 6:00 this morning to get an hour or so of studying in for my 8:00 test. Well, I don't know if it was the slightly above audible music coming from my computer, or the fact that I was sleeping with my head away from the alarm clock, or the fact that 6 is earlier then any alarm I have set this year. Any or all of those things combined, I slept threw half my test and woke up at 8:40. I quickly screamed a number of profanities, grabbed whatever clothes I could see (sweatshirt and pants), grabbed my backpack and went running out into the cold. I made it to the test-room by 9, knowing that it would be locked and I would not be allowed in to complete my test, thus fucking up anything this year ever could have meant. Lucky for me the professor sees me coming into the room, points to a stack of tests, and I begin, that easy. The profuse shaking I had put myself into do to my stress and adrenaline seemed to amuse my fellow test-takers who had already been there over an hour. This has pissed me off a great deal. So if I don't seem to peachy today now you know why. This was my favorite class and the only one I figured I could slide by doing above average in. And guess what, this test decided whether I move out of C and into B. So great.. I fucked up when it really mattered. Also, to get the irony of this post check my friend Josh's Blog. Crazy. And to end in a fashion similar to his :

JustAnotheRunner: but i just walked in and grabbed my test
JustAnotheRunner: my professor = teh santa
V00D0024: lucky bastard
V00D0024: my professor = teh grinch

Completed Life Goal #1


To reach the sniper tower in Blood Gulch. Then to slide over to the left above the whole map. WHERE I AM UNREACHABLE!!!1. And no this has no real significance in anyone's life. Also, in todays news. My friends have come up with a better solution to the Saddam capture. That hole he dug in the ground you probably heard about. We believe that he should have been left in there, with a camera, and we air a new reality TV show, in which we see if he can survive certain things being put into the hole(fire ants, bees, etc).

Pro-Saddam?

BrandNew6174: bush is a hero
V00D0024: yeah, huzzah for america
BrandNew6174: ah, so you like saddam?
V00D0024: no, i dont like bush
BrandNew6174: he found saddam
V00D0024: ok.
BrandNew6174: youre a terrorist
V00D0024: typical fucking american stupid ass mentality
V00D0024 : cant even fucking hate the president without loving saddam
BrandNew6174 : exactly
BrandNew6174: USA
BrandNew6174: USA
V00D0024: what a fucking dumbass

First note, this is a convo between my cousin and a friend, and I would like to add that no friendships were hurt during the making of this arguement.

*Blaze2008 says: Haha, voodoo hated Bush before it was cool.

Finals?


Sorry I havn't had a lot to talk about. My life has been mostly studying and little tidbits of halo to get the mind off the studying. And ofcourse when we aren't playing halo or studying, we are speeding up the "forgetting" process, thus the picture.
*Blaze2008 says: Haha, did you see the last post, when I said I amaze myself when it comes to forgetting things within a year? Yeah, we call this post irony. Because now I'm not amazed.

What temper?

Well, not much of an update today. I'm learning a lot of JSP and what-not in my CS185 class. This stuff will end up being very useful in my site once I learn more of it. Just a bit more language to keep my one step ahead of my brother. Who has already surpassed me in my Adobe Photoshop, 3dmax, PHP, and HTML skills. Which reminds me. I should ask him to make me a top banner for this site. He has a nice folder of abstract images that look like they are made with a 3d program, when infact he just used Adobe. I really don't know how he does half the stuff. And here are 2 links for 24 magazines from each mag. No I am not getting any referral money, and these are completely free, out of the goodness of my heart. <2 year Stuff Subscription><2 year Maxim Subscription>.

*Blaze2008 says: Wow, I was learning JSP freshman year. Remembering any of that would have come in handy as an intern last year. I suprise myself with my ability to forget everything I learn within 1 year.

Teh Last Week of Class.

Thats right. One more week of sitting in class, then another of finals. Then I am gone. This kinda sucks because of the fact that I'm going to miss all the guys around here, but I will get to see alot of the old crew. And I think we have some "Winter Watta" to take care of.

Saturday, December 6, 2003

Look mom, I have friends.

Well, last night was a big night for my room. Have to say we had the largest amount of people in our room then we've ever had. And it was a damn good time, we played some President(asshole). Listened to some music. And probably were heard threwout all of Murray Hall. Hopefully we can all have a good time tommorow night as well. Gotta get all those pre-finals jitters out.
*Blaze2008 says: Do you see those 3 girls in the back. They were randoms, completely random, they were only their for 5 minutes and we pulled them in from the hall in order to make the picture look bigger. I wanted to show my mom I had truely arrived at college.

Texas Hold 'em.

30 dollars in the hole. 3 nights playing. This isn't an addiction, I'm going to win it all back tommorow.

*Blaze 2008 says: I also added a link to a video me and some friends made trying to be like the guys from jackass. We hit a dude with a car, shot me with paintballs and hit shopping carts. Unfortunately a blog is unable to host a video file. So you'll have to get me drunk and remind me its on my thumb drive some day to see it. (we called ourselves WATTA... We Are Trying This At Home) If the video doesn't work. Here it is on youtube

View from the Goodyear Blimp.

Right. It's halo season. Nothing like a game of headshots and mass murder to take away that finals/holiday stress. There is a halo tournament coming up, but I have no crew I think is really capable of making a show. Plus I dont even think that I, myself, am ready. So for now I will play with the 4 rooms surrounding me. Popped my hand today. I cant really say that I couldn't have guessed how much liqued would have came out of there. It was A LOT. But I don't need to be sickening any of you. So forget I said that. I started working on my Xbox mod. Shaky start. But I hope it still turns out. A lot of filing(sp?) and sanding ahead of me. I need to shape my cuts. And get it ready for when I go home for Xmas break. Which is when I am planning on finishing it. With a little help from my cousin at Elite Signs and Banners.

Average Day.

I had some free time to post so here it is. Nothing special happened today, got a lot of comments on my hand. Which is still the same size as yesterday. Mainly the comments are along the lines of "must be using it too much" to the ever popular "why dont you pop it?". Well let me tell you that I think it will be better off healing itself. I don't think that my body creates something that it expects me to mess with. If you haven't watched the Alien Quadrilogy, I suggest it. I recently watched Aliens (alien 2) and Aliens:Resurrection (alien 4). I still should get around to watching 1 and 2. Unfortunatly I did not have those on my computer. Also, I will get my "blistered hand" photos in my Pain gallery. Along with some X-rays I remembered I had got from a needle that broke off in my foot, and my broken hand. Thats it for today. It's Poker Time!

Candle 1 : BLaZE 0.

5 days without a post. I'm sure you all understand though, seeing how it was the holidays, and as you can see by the picture. I was hanging out with my family most of the weekend, the picture itself is a few of my cousins having a good time. We made sure to rough up the younger cousins from Ohio that we only see during the holidays, turns out they mainly gave out the beatings. I really enjoyed my time with the relatives and family. The last night of my vacation break was spent at Mike's house party. Where all the old freedom people that I graduated with went. It was a big reunion and we all had a great time. I'm sure Mike will be putting up an image gallery on his website with all the good pictures he took. Overall it was a damn good party and I loved seeing everyone again. Hopefully this was a sample of what Xmas vacation will bring. If your wondering what the title was about, I took a bet this weekend that I couldn't suffocate a wax candle in a cup by putting my palm over the mouth of the cup. Well, I won the bet, but my hand lost the war. Picture #1- Picture #2. Thats all I have for now. I could tell you a lot more about my vacation, but that would take a lot more of your time then you're willing to give. To finish : heres a nice little link I ran across while writing this post. Thanks to Mike for the find. Mario Brothers 3 Beat in 11 Minutes. w00t!

Robots and Halo.

In an hour I'll be delivering the yellow books for CC. All money goes to the CC team, so all of us were asked to split up in groups and deliver a bunch of these things. Today was pretty ordinary. I sat down to register for next semesters classes. It turns out I need to pay them more of my money. Because thats pretty much how things go around here. Oh, you wanted running water? Well, bend over and grab your ankles. I might be exaggerating. On other notes I would like to say my "song of the moment" (rand.song) is very funny and if you havn't heard it before maybe you should give it a try. It's from a comedian, just so you expect that. I would like to thank Scheelkzilla for telling me about the robots that search for materials to create more robots. Because I let that theory slip with some friends of mine over here, and now we never stop talking about them. For those of you that don't know. The plan is this: We create a robot, 1 at first, but then he will create many. He is programmed to search for materials (metal mainly), to create more robots with, then program them as he was. They will then divide and create like an amoeba, only, they wont be cutting themselves in half. And their might be a nested program somewhere in there about world domination. Well, tommorows the big day. Back home for the weekend, Halo and turkey will be had!

Woke up this morning to find...

Well, I added titles to each post. Which I think brings more organization to this messed up site. I would like to say that most things in my life at the moment are looking up. I don't know if it's the cheerful season we are in, the first snowfall, or the completion of a big project last night that is making me feel this good. But regardless I'll take what I can get. I have to add that everything isn't sunshine and daisies however, That "project" I mentioned, well it was a C++ project. Now this is a class that I noticed has influenced me to change my major to something that has less programming in it. I love computers to death, but programming is just not my bag, baby. Regardless, I can't wait for this weekend and I am excited to see family and relatives, and hopefully some of my old friends. Maybe play some ... Halo? From what I hear some of the guys back home have been dusting off the ol' controllers and given that game its 3rd or 5th life. Well, how most of us see it is halo comes in bursts, you love it for about a month or 2. Then it fades from having played it at every waking moment of those couple months. So you stop, for another month or 2. Your sitting around one day, someone mentions halo, and it comes out, stronger then ever. I have no arguments, the game is a true multiplayer hit in every aspect. Plus, I have to start prepping for halo 2. If I start getting into that game during its release, I might be able to win some money off some suckers once a tournament roles around. But enough talking about video games, I know it doesn't hit others like it hits me. Hehe. Besides, I should probably get to class. Hi Ho Silver, and away...

2 days past.

Yes, three days without a post. My apologies. I try to do as little as possible on the weekends. If your asking why, it's because every weekday morning, after a night of too-little sleep, I force myself to get out of bed to turn off the scream of the alarm clock. I then promise myself a weekend of sleeping in. Some people have coffee, some people have there positive attitude, I have promises of all the weekend sleeping in I can get. It's a bad habit though, because when you wake up past noon, you just get this sickening feeling that you've thrown away far too much of your day. Now that I've actually put that down on paper, er, cyber-paper...right. I think I might actually start setting my alarm on weekends as well. I don't know how much of a commitment that is though, setting the alarm on weekends, the though makes me shiver. I would also like to point out that Mike's post on 11.21.03, has a link to what "truly describes his feelings" and I read threw some of it, a lot of rambling this guy does, granted it is interesting stuff. I then read the comments of this guy's post. Which were more interesting, because some people were bashing him, I assumed. They all talked like people that knew something I didn't. Either way, the reason I brought this up is because in the comments they started talking about aphex twin. Which is a great band(if you can call it that), they pretty much create these crazy techno songs. I had listened to them a lot around a year ago then forgot about them. With this reminder I brought a few of there songs back up and it's a change from then normal music you hear. If you want to try some get some of there best are as follows: windolicker, boy girl song, speedracer, come to daddy. Tuesday is my signup for next semester already. Which is pretty early from all the other freshman, I don't know if this is because I originally had 17 credits (a lot for a freshman, thus putting me ahead of the others), or the fact that I was put on a early acceptance list due to my Cross Country involvement. Hopefully this means I will get my first choice of classes and won't have to fall back on any of my less wanted choices. Wow big post, but it is coming to an end. I would just like to add that I will be trying to get a nice blogger or some other program that helps me post. Not only will it make posting a lot easier on my end, it should allow me to add a comments section after each post, so you can reply and let me know whats up, a great idea I believe this is. Speak like yoda i do? Right. Time to tackle this sunday.

Showtime.

On first note, the Murray Hall Thanksgiving "feast" was very good and I enjoyed some homestlye cooking for a change. I had a pretty eventful day as far as the website goes. The Image Gallery section is up and running full blast. Go there to check out pictures of my tattoos, computer, hobbies and the like. Took me a long time to get the gallery template to look the way I wanted it to. Dreamweaver was being very stubborn. And before I forget it, if you feel you have a link or a webpage you would like me to add to my links bar, just email me and let me know. I can't wait to get this weekend out of the way so I can enjoy the shortly arriving holidays. I do believe this has been the first time I actually stopped and anticipated a newly arriving date. Also, a new addition to the site I forgot to add was the random image is now a link to the rest of them, for you impatient people.

Gobble Gobble.

Well, I am about to head down to the basement of my dorm for some Thanksgiving turkey fun. I figured I would use this time to put a few words down. If you havn't noticed, the site is still under construction. I will be adding a nice pictures section. Where a lot of my good digital camera images will be hosted. I'll put up my case mod galleries as well. For now though I will keep my posting up and groom the site where I see necessary. Not much happend today. I took my first run of the indoor season. I will be running almost every day from here on out, hopefully lose some of this "freshman 15". Hehe. Well thats all for now. Hope everyone has a great week.

Mary Jane.

Haha. This is just too good to Le'go. One of my good friends had a little run in with the 5-0 last week. He made the University Police Blotter. Here is a snippit.


Marijuana-scented candle Sunday, Nov. 9 "Two officers were sent to Horan Hall after an RA detected the odor of marijuana coming from a room on the third floor. The officers did not smell marijuana outside the room. The officers then called the resident, who did not pick up. Then they knocked on the door and a man answered. The man agreed to let the officers come inside the room to ask questions. When the officers entered the room they noticed a strong scent of marijuana, a running fan and an open window. In order to eliminate him as a suspect using marijuana, the officers asked to search the room. The resident said they could. While searching, the officers asked the resident to unlock a top dresser drawer, but he refused, stating that the drawer's contents were personal. When the officers asked what exactly was in the drawer, he refused to answer. The officers were unable to find any illegal items in the room. The resident was then asked why the room smelled like marijuana. He said it was from a candle he was burning. He showed the officers a candle, but it did not smell like marijuana. The man was given a citation for violating fire safety by burning candles."


I'd like to add that he got a $181.00 fine for his "candle burning". Well, As for normal news, thanks to Josh (aka ninja) for giving me props on my last post. I meant what I was saying and he apparantly agrees. I will be acquiring an XBOX soon, which has always been a gaming love of mine away from the computer. Tonight I purchased the Halo game itself, along with 2 controllers and a empty XBOX case, I'll let you all in on that little venture later on. I have to say I am a Halo addict, and the thought of Halo 2 being right around the corner makes me all warm and sticky. I actually have alot on my mind right now, but it is getting time to do more important things. So I'll save it for tommorow.

The Speed of Time.

Another day come and gone. The months fly by here. It seems like one week a month or season is just beginning, and the next week it is ending. Soon Thanksgiving will be here and I will get to spend some time home with my family and relatives. Then out of no where Christmas will be here and I'll be home again. This time for longer. These things are probably in reality a ways away, but this year has been here and gone. Much to my liking I might add. Here in college I just sit and clench on to what I have a hold of. Hoping not to lose my grasp and tumble down a road of unsuccess. My parents and friends expect so much. Everyone goes to college these days, it's not normal to suffer through it. I don't want to be a disapointment. So I'll keep hanging on to what I've got. Sorry I don't have much in the lines of 'good news', I've had a lot on my mind lately.

Post #1.5.

I figure I am going to actually start taking a little time out of my PACKED schedule each day in order to post in my website. See if I can't actually get some 'regulars'. I would like to explain the recent inability to use my computer which some of you may have noticed. It all started with a nasty virus, which disabled norton. It was more annoying then anything. I found that I could not click on links nested in certain websites(Example: links in forums, or links to "clear my hotmail spam"). So as you can imagine my hotmail account overflowed and I decided to put my 120 gig harddrive on my 60 gig as a slave and scan it with new virus software. Well, like usual, I had trouble switching harddrives, because of the nonexistent jumper directions on my 60 gig. After a lot of screwing around I come across a small problem, the fan in my graphics card heatsink has stopped spinning. Which I must have done while working with the harddrives. So now I had a new problem. Fix the heatsink before I can use the computer again. My first attempt was a new VGA heatsink. Brought it home and found out it did not fit my video card. I then had to wait a week to get a new ride out to the same store. Where I returned the heatsink and planned on getting a new fan to chop up and put in the old heatsink. I also sent a bunch of emails back and forth with the makers of my videocard and had a new heatsink coming in the mail, but I wasn't about to wait another week to start using it. The chopped up fan worked perfectly in the old heatsink and now I got my computer back after maybe a week or two of non-use. On a sadder note, while screwing with my harddrives, I dropped my 120 gig on the ground and it doesn't work anymore. Lucky for me Western Digital is really great with RMA's and I'll be getting a new one almost no questions asked.

Kinda a little busy for posts right now. But check out what we do instead of homework around here---> MT DEW
