[23:56] Dwip: And God damn all research papers anyway. [23:57] Dwip: It’s a bunch of shit I can already talk about for myself. [23:57] Dwip: But no, I have to have done research so I can blather about what other people have done. [00:04] Dwip: All we’re saying, Internet, is give page loading a chance.

The Return of the Evil Paper of Doom

So, check this out. I’ve got a paper to write. Little 3 page thing, but I have to have ~6 journal sources, which means research. 3 times, I have done the necessary research. And each one of those times, somewhere in the middle of things, the power has gone out and I’ve lost all my notes. In this latest instance, it even somehow obliterated my saved notes for about four articles. These are the only 3 times the power has gone out in months. This should not be this hard.

The Other War

I swear to you, BF2 is the most mod-unfriendly game I have ever seen in my life. I realize that much of this has to do with being concerned about cheating. However, this is ludicrous. Let’s hear it for installs, I guess. On the other hand, it’s that much better than BFV in this regard, because BFV, well, it could be pretty bad. However. In any case, allow me to commend a book unto you, called Japan At War: An Oral History by Haruko Taya Cook and Theodore F. Cook, which is, yes, an oral history of Japan during World War II. I found it to be a phenomenal book, covering as it does everyone from soldiers to workers to […]

Deer Materialism
By Dwip March 17, 2007 at 11:26 pm Comments (2) RSS Feed for this post

Seen in my public libraries textbook: “Most society members have been led to believe that life in society is a competetive struggle for existance and that material progress can be realized through technological and economic growth. Students of society, however, have identified a gradual paradagim shift away from these positions and a spreading pessimism. The futurist Alvin Toffler, for instance, contends that there is an assumption that moral, aesthetic, political, and environmental degredation will overwhelm society no matter the material or technological progress it enjoys.” Yeah, and you know what? When money is evil, we’re gonna cavort with some fucking deer while our robot slaves grow us free food. Yes, Halor conversation of old, we love you too.

Fiddling To A Burning Blog
By Dwip March 15, 2007 at 5:38 pm Comments (3) RSS Feed for this post

Various and sundry changes abound. 1. The Rabbit Classic style is pretty much where it’s going to be, bar an improved title graphic. I’ve made it about as readable as I can make it with this current setup without making it look horrific. 2. However, this is not to say that it won’t change some more shortly. We’re currently kicking around several ideas, among which are: – Moving to WordPress, which maybe has dropdowns and things. – Moving to MT 3, which may or may not have anything at all but at least isn’t dead. – Creating a new archives page where a single link gets you to a page with all category/monthly links AND displays posts. If this method […]

To Build the Better Blog
By Dwip March 13, 2007 at 12:21 pm Comments (11) RSS Feed for this post

The astute observer will notice that, yes, we’re rampantly under construction around here. In time, it is possible that we will see a new, improved blog, with things like search, categories, auto-archiving quotes, and themes like Whir has. Unfortunately, rumors that it will also do your housework and walk the dog are lies. I’m about to go do dishes right now, in fact. Suggestions, by the by, are welcome.

Least Worst Of, Volume II
By Dwip March 12, 2007 at 12:48 pm Comments (6) RSS Feed for this post

Because the blog turns, as an MT blog, 4 today. Happy birthday, blog. I say “as an MT blog,” because I’ve been blogging, if not always on a blog, for far longer. I’m talking, of course, of that famous Tonto series of yore, Marius’ Rants of the Day. These have always been available (mostly), from my Writings page. However, for this birthday, I decided to do a few site changes. 1. The Writings page is no more. In its place on the Things To Do list is a direct link to the Quotes page, which is all I’ve kept. The stories are no more, but I don’t think anyone read them anyway. 2. Marius’ Rants of the Day have been […]

Dancing In the Dark

A few ponderances upon the events of yesterday: – As Sarah was saying to me in the line for Little Shop of Horrors, Soviets make everything funnier. Which is why I have a mix CD here emblazoned with “In Soviet Russia, CD Plays You!” – Little Shop of Horrors was surprisingly unbad. In spite of my passionate hatred of musicals, which are the spawn of Satan and must be destroyed, I actually unwound enough to enjoy the thing. Ph34r teh plant ones. (I should now make Sarah watch Day of the Triffids. Except the movie totally sucked, so) – We watched a lot of Full Metal Panic. Among other observations was this classic when Gauron showed up in his silver […]
