I think about 3 people who read this blog will understand the full impact of this whole thing, but I guess we’ve turned the phrase “wash the dog” into a sort of verb. Witness: Cole: Yeah, sorry for not showing up earlier. I kind of got wash the dogged. Y eah, you have to be one of those three people. But it’s funny if you are.

*I walk in the door* Me: Hey y’all. Mel: Yeah, so the hamster thing was kind of disturbing. Me: Well, yeah, a little. I have a warped sense of humor. Chad: That was an interesting greeting. “Hi.” “The hamster thing was disturbing.” *insert chortling* Somewhat later… Somebody: So what’s the plan? Me: Let’s build a steam powered submarine, sail it to the evil nation of undead ruled by a dragon God-king, and take it over. We can do it. We’re level 2. Everybody: No. Somewhat later… *I’m reading a handout* Me: So under the Cygnar entry. Is this “War-caster Nemo” guy important? Matt: No, not at all. Why? Me: So we don’t have to go find Nemo or anything? Matt: […]

WHAT THE HELL
By Dwip September 20, 2005 at 10:32 pm Comments Off on WHAT THE HELL RSS Feed for this post

Let me advance to you the idea that, and let us put this politely, Linksys is fucking shit, Monrotel is fucking shit, and that I am living in the 21st fucking century, and that for me to have internet access that works largely intermittantly is, quite frankly completely and totally unacceptable. This was actually going to be, you know, a real post, but I’m pretty much out of patience at this point. It’s coming, I promise.

I swear to you all that I will fully recount the whole High School 2: The Revenge thing to you fairly soon. However, as I have a ton of stuff to get done before I apply to grad school tomorrow and before I take my Praxis IIs Saturday, soon does not equal now. However, I WILL mention a couple of things, the first being that I finally got my Praxis II scores from the previous test, which turn out to be: Social Studies: Content Knowledge – 191 of 200 Social Studies: Interpretation and Analysis – 165 of 200 As to that first test, I have this nice little certificate here that says, among other things… “Congratulations! You have earned the […]

To Make the Impossible Fix

To quote Samson: “I bring news! The function which shall not be named has been defeated. Ironically with a single line of source code being corrected.” To quote Whir, upon hearing the news: “SOMEONE FIXED RD_PARSE?!” And for the rest of you, well, it’s a MUD thing. rd_parse is the function that controls damage dice for spells and things. And for the longest time, and we’re talking since 1997 or so, it had some serious issues with not working. Said issues prompted me personally to attempt rewrites at least twice, and plenty of others to do the same over the years. One line of code. Dammit. For those of you who could care less, I’ll write up my experiences amongst […]

In the Epic Struggle…

…between rabbits, and, well, rabbits… Dad: Oh yeah. Seeing your blog reminded me. The black rabbit clan won. Me: The what? Dad: Well, in this park where we went, the last time we were there, there were tons of rabbits of all different colors. We come back this time, nothing but black rabbits. So the black rabbit clan won. Little did those poor other rabbits know, they stumbled on the secret rabbit ninja training grounds…

And then there are those days when you’re on, like, the bleeding edge of old school, so to speak. It all started innocently enough… Me: Hey, Mechwarrior 2. I haven’t played you in a long time. I bet you’re still fun. MW2: I bet I am. Me: How about I install you and play you? MW2: OH MY GOD IT’S WINDOWS XP SAVE ME SAVE ME HELP HELP! Me: Well, that’s no good. Hey, The Internet, why can’t I get MW2 and Windows XP to play together like good children? The Internet: Well, Dwip, it turns out that for some random reason, the Windows version of MW2 won’t work in XP. You need Win95 or Win98 to make it run. […]

Harking back to the mechanized days of yore, I was digging around in my Trillian message archives looking for something totally different, and found this old conversation of Cole’s and mine: [01:58] Dwip: Time to jot that down on the list, along with the 9×9 volcano map. [01:58] Dwip: I mean, not that we’ll ever PLAY on a 9×9 volcano map, but it would be kind of cool. [01:58] Clyos: 9×9 volcano map? ummm….. that’s a little out of control you realize, we’d need like ww2 shufflboard sticks for that [01:59] Dwip: Er, 3×3 [01:59] Dwip: 9×9. Aeeyah. [01:59] Clyos: ok, 3×3 i can handle [01:59] Dwip: I can’t even comprehend a 9×9 map game. [02:00] Dwip: Like, it’s the […]
