7.20.2004: Updates, updates, updates!!!
Surprise, surprise - I've been using my webspace as a dumping ground. Well, I've avoided updating for nearly a year. Hmm...yeah.
Here's a quick recap of major events since my last post:

- attended at least three lan parties
- became addicted to anime
- tried my hand at stalking people (failed miserably)
- went to California Boys' State (yay for me!)
- lost my tech job due to lack of grant funds
- swiped about $500 of equipment from work over the past year or so
- broke my old razor
- broke a few other electronics (oops)
- threw away about half of that $500 of equipment
- no job now
- failed to keep a linux install working for more than a month
- failed to recompile linux

So yeah, that's all - make sure to check out my Pinout FAQ
9.23.2003: Cisco, Partitions, and Chozo...
Okay, this one's gonna be somewhat of a recap: First of all...the site's gonna go through some major overhauls soon and i'm gonna start hosting some stuff THAT TRIPOD BETTER NOT DELTETE!!! Well, let's see, I'm now in Cisco Academy and it's awfully slooooooooooow right now...oh well, that's what I get for taking a networking class beforehand... Got a new box, here are the specs:
Mobo: Soyo KT333 Dragon Ultra Platinum
Lemme say one thing: don't try to multiboot win98se,2k,and linux unless you know what you're doing!!! I ended up win just win98 in the end due to compatibility issues and it's soooooooo much faster to set up and use on this box. Microsoft needs to take the KISS approach if they want me to stick with windows much longer... Too bad they aren't gonna make something along the lines of Win95, but with the stability and security of 2k...YOU LISTENING BILL!? Off to debian country as soon as DSL or cable hits the household...
What else...hmm...ah yes, click that big button near the poll to go visit Relics of the Chozo. It's an awesome colaberation project of several remixers that decided to take on the challenge of a continuous remix of all the songs in Super Metroid. (the best game ever IMHO...need to go get lost in Zebes again...
Just rented Soul Calibur 2, and let me say that i'm impressed, but the only way to play is an arcade stick. (Trust me...the Gamecube controller is horrible...my hands are HUGE) Oh, and Mitsurugi is a cheap (censored)...that is all.
The links are updated btw.
4.14.2003 (screwed up the date...should be 4 or 5) : Here gremlin, gremlin, glemlin...
Well, I got an excuse to reformat...I happened to, out of my own ignorance to my virus scanner, get a virus. (win32.trojan.gen (UPX) I think) Anywho, this little bugger decided to make my computer a little unstable (on april fool's day no less) and thus I decided to wipe the whole HD. Well, of course I did print off my important info and make a huge list of files to redownload, but anywho...It's back to normal... I hope...cuz i dl'ed the stupid file again and norton said it was fine...(yeah right)...so hopefully I'm still okay. (no suspicious behavior)
Looks like I'm gonna have a nice secondary HD now, provided it will be running debian linux, but in general, it'll be nice to at least be able to work in a STABLE environment for a change.
And I found a 486 with PCI slots...weird...looks like I've got a router for the next lan party!
Oh yeah, and the HSF got superglued on, and it hasn't fallen off yet. ;) And I decided to get a better 3D card (a ripoff retail one, but it's worth it...[sis 305 PCI 32meg])
3.14.2003: My ASPI!!!
Okay, little tip to you computer peeps - if it ain't broke, don't fix it...that simple. After reading much of the spare documentation on my computer, I figured I would update my ASPI (SCSI, ATAPI, etc) driver.
...And bitboy endured many hardships and his computer was cursed for 40 days and 40 nights, no more, no less. On the last day, the Lord had mercy on bitboy and gave him the bright idea of using the Google search engine. The Lord said: "Though shalt spend day and night finding the correct files and their locations. Though shalt hunt through cabinet files and drag files to the primary partition. Though shalt make a batch file and endurest many hardships in making that work." So I did what I suddenly found was the answer. "...And both he and the Lord looked down on the gh3tt0 b0x and said it was once again l33t."
Okay, next time I reload, I'm switching mostly to linux!!! Honestly, I've had it with this horrid installation! I can't even install Norton on it now! Gah!!! Begone!!!
On a side note, at least I get to assemble the studio in the media center tommorrow.
btw - that PII-450 was actually a 266. :( And I've ruined the clip for it, so I'm gonna go superglue the darn HSF!!
Just another day in the life of a confused and sinus-problem ridden person.
2.13.2003: Oh, I have a website? Oops...
That'sa right... get ready 4 me new st4rcr4ft cl4n!
ClanFur! Furry clans are starting! Yaaaaaaaaaaaay!
Be making page 4 clan soon...and setting up.
--EDIT--: I was obsessed with furries and starcraft at the time...pay no attention to the post... I have a life now only a marginal interest in furries that is only because of their novelty.
Blog...continued...Can't quite break that monthly habit...
Just had yet another LAN party, but this one was worth it. Four attendants, four computers, a PS2, a Cube, and 24 can of soda on the wall. (and three pizzas! :) Mostly played DMC, TF, NS, and several other phun mods. And lost miserably to the computer in Starcraft. >.<
Hopefully, I'll be able to throw together a new gaming rig with my $200+ of birthday funds, cuz my current rig is a bit too slow for my likings.
Wish me luck...chow...
BlogblahblogI've made a personal goal to update more often...so here goes...
I just recieved a FREE monitor from scoo, and it is sooooo much better than my old one. (ie-800x600 @ 60 hertz w/ no power management = bad) It seems that somebody actually voted in my poll...thanx to whoever that may be... If anybody knows where a guy can get some tutorials for Visual Basic 5 w/ DirectX SDK, give me a shout...
So long folks...and remember, there are ten types of people in this world: those who can count binary, and those that can't...
10.2.2002: I really need to update more often than once a month...
Heeeeeeeeeeey CHOCARENA!You may be asking what the heck a chocorena is...(here's a hint: chobo-theme + macarena = fun) The saying "Shake a tailfeather" has a new meaning for me. I'll even post pics of my super-rusty, but l33t, mad dancin' skilz! (I'm that desperate folks...)
If ya wanna ge the mix, just head over to http://remix.overclocked.org/ and enjoy!
School's been goin' okay so far...should stay that way...
On one more sidenote, I now own SFA...but It's not exactly stellar...still it's cool enough and Rare's last nintendo game... (Which I'm really pissed about.)
9.2.2002: Last day of Vacation
