This was not a triumph…

Well, I didn’t wind up moving afterall. There were some really questionable things about the place that I didn’t really like, and I felt like I was obligated to move for a number of reasons I won’t discuss here.

Also, these are the ingredients to the best cake ever made in the history of mankind. 10 points to griffindor if someone guesses it correctly without having been told previously by me what it is.

One 18.25 ounce package chocolate cake mix.
One can prepared coconut pecan frosting.
3/4 cup vegetable oil.
Four large eggs.
One cup semi-sweet chocolate chips.
3/4 cups butter or margarine.
1 2/3 cups granulated sugar.
Two cups all purpose flower. (note, it says flower, not flour)
Fish shaped crackers.
Fish shaped candies.
Fish shaped solid waste.
Fish shaped dirt.
Fish shaped ethyl benzene.
Pull and peel licorice.
Fish shaped organic compounds and sediment shaped sediment.
Candy coated peanut butter pieces…Shaped like fish.
One cup lemon juice.
Alpha resins.
Unsaturated polyester resin.
Fiberglass surface resins.
And volatile malted milk impoundments.
Nine large egg yolks.
Twelve medium geosynthetic membranes.
One cup granulated sugar.
Two cups rhubarb, sliced.
2/3 cups granulated rhubarb.
One tablespoon all-purpose rhubarb.
One teaspoon grated orange rhubarb.
Three tablespoons rhubarb, on fire.
One cross borehole electro-magnetic imaging rhubarb.
Two tablespoons rhubarb juice.
Adjustable aluminum head positioner.
Slaughter electric injector.
Cordless electric needle injector.
Injector needle driver.
Injector needle gun.
Cranial caps.
And it contains proven presentatives, deep penetration agents, and gas and odor control chemicals. That will deodorize and preserve putrid tissue. No problem.

[17:17] Congress: I don’t really know anything about writing programing from scratch, lol. But i can edit pre-existing code, which works well for most creators.
[17:18] Congress: They want someone who can code NEW things for guilds, though, which might throw a wrench into my plans to join that secion of creatordom

Welp, the big day is today (I think).

Just got off work… waiting for my bank statement to come in, stuck in my room hiding from a really bad danger of sorts. Once I get the $250 for my down payment/first months rent, I’m gonna be doing ok. Next up is foodstamps, or else I’ll be starving… Oh ya, maybe no internet for a while. That’s gonna be super-fun! I also got sent through the gauntlet last night at work to test for more hours sort of. It’s not an official test, but I’m doing it anyway to prove I’m a good worker. Part two happens this next tuesday (the 29th). So, I guess it’ the ‘good life’ for me from now on, if you can call it that. I think we’ll be ok though.

Home sweet Home, or something like that

Today, I go in to do a walk-through on a place some of my friends and I are going to be moving into. It’s sort of tiny and a lot of the insides are being redone. I’ve only seen this place so far from the outside, since I wasn’t the one that actually found the place. We’re gonna paint it (or it’s going to be painted, not sure which yet), so the nasty blue on the outside won’t be there anymore, nor will the painted on house numbers. I’m excited and scared at the same time, since it’ll be $233 per person a month. Luckily, my new night assistant-manager is a very fair person and very kind to me. I’ve been getting shorted on hours quite a bit, so much so to the point where I was working only one day a week. That gives me enough money to cover the bills, but nothing else. I suppose I’ll be operating off of food stamps sometime in the near future, although I don’t like the idea of that. I also want to go to college at RCC, but between my increased hours and maintaining a new home, I don’t think I’ll be able to. Oh well, I suppose. I’ll need to find a good part-time job that allows me to work every day of the week.

In other news, I’ve been using windows 7 more and more, and I’m slightly impressed. Although I’m not exactly happy with it hovering at .97GiB of ram usage while it’s idle, I do think it’s fairly snappy compared to Vista, and works great for my games. Albeit, I have 4.0GiB of RAM, 3.6 of which is currently usable under the 32-bit OS’s I run. Garry’s Mod is fun again, which is a major plus. I’m able to spawn a load of NPCs and do a giant war with vehicles I built (although they don’t react at all to props). I think one of these days I’m going to do a zombie-survival type match by myself. Internet games without friends are no fun. I also need to get the Aurora Cannon working, as that looked very interesting. Most of my addons function currently though, so I’m quite happy.

Also, I’m looking forward to the next rideo post. Atlas said he was going to post something about his ridiculous teacher’s syllabus, and I’ve already had a sample of that nonsense. I can’t wait for the post.

Freedom

After a good long 3 years of battling, I’m finally free from my grasps of the state. Here within the month, I’m going to receive my letter of approval or something like that. It feels really nice to be out of this mess. It’s scary too, because this was keeping me at home. I really don’t know whether or not I’m going to be able to survive on ‘my own’ (with my roommates) because of my work ethic and income rate. I’m actually terrified to death of it.

Work is looking up though, hopefully soon I’ll be getting more hours. I don’t have to worry about schedules clashing, and now I could probably even work college into the factor. I’m hoping that I’ll have enough time for it though, as FAFSA requires 8 credit-hours or something like that. Scary scary stuff.

A Casual Impulse

I know I’ve posted a lot to the blog lately, but I found a need to put this here. It is my new favorite thing, even though I’ll probably never have one of my own. Also, there’s a howto on instructables I was reading. Too many circuitry terms for me… Anyway, here’s the video:

That’s My Measuring Stick!

So, I’ve been on about this measurement system for computers lately, and it’s bugging some of my friends. However, I would like to make a point that there is a major difference between “Gigabytes” and “Gibibytes”. Most people who use computers frequently and are adept with them understand that 1024 Bytes is 1 Kilobyte, and 1024 Kilobytes is a Megabyte, and so on. However, manufacturers have been using a sleazy tactic lately where they list 1000 Bytes as a Kilobyte, and 1000 Kilobytes as a Megabyte, all to make their numbers artificially bigger. When you buy a new computer that has a 250GB hard drive listing, you usually come home to find that it’s actually 233GiB (which your computer uses), versus the GB SI Prefix that everyone likes to flaunt around as both measurement systems. There is a major difference between GB and GiB. Please try to use the GiB form in your daily lives. If you have any qualms with it, please refer to the IEEE and ask them why it changed or just Google it. IEEE sets the standards for computers, and since they’ve changed the measuring system to more accurately reflect the Greek prefixes, it’s best to use it. If enough people begin to use the GiB format (Gibibytes), then manufacturers will have no way of labeling their products as a false measurement. The Linux kernel uses GiB, and so does the Windows kernel in some areas. Mac’s however, does not. Fight this tyranny with knowledge!

Anyway, long story short, just add an extra lowercase i inbetween the G and the B. It’s as simple as that.
