The Electorate have chosen. [Apr. 9th, 2009|05:49 pm]

The vote is over. I now hold the rank of elite within The Evil Council! I celebrate this by coloring in and shrinking the Evil Council logo (originally created by Spook) for use as an avatar. This is probably less impressive when you consider I initially tied for fourth place in an election with five nominees and four seats available, but still, I'M ELIIIIIIIITE.

In other news, my computers are still busked, however, they are busked differently than I thought before. The computer at my mom's house seems mostly clean of junk somehow, but I'll be making sure by finishing up my antistuffware run when I get back. However, it's having problems booting that seem to be the fault of the power supply, so that'll need replacing. The computer at my dad's house, on the other hand, is giving me a bluescreen error when I boot it up, even after reinstalling. I guess I'll need to move my hard drive over to a working computer t fix that. In more gooder electronics news, I think I'll be hooking up an remote control to an alarm clock so I can wake up in the morning to cartoons, as man was meant to sense the dawn of time. As nerdy man-child was meant to, anyway. After that, I think I'll try to replace the power jack on my old laptop so I can use the dang thing.

Edit: Here's the picture because LJ dosen't show post pictures and I don't want to use it as me default right now:

MDUDE'S MARCH MADNESS SALE! [Mar. 20th, 2009|12:28 pm]
MDude1350
Allright, this week I was able to do something helpfull! My brother was trying to move files form one drive to another and was getting an error saying the drive ran out of room, even though it was several gigabytes larger than needed. I figured out pretty quickly that it was the maximum file size difference between NTFS and FAT32 behind it, and the problem was fixed just by splitting up a large .rar file he had.

As far as fixing my own computer over here at my Mom's house goes, though, I've procrastinated that away for another week, but I'll be trying out SuperAntiSpyware and MalwareBytes when I get back. Interestingly, over at my dad's house, I had moved some files over from the infected computer that weren't backed up using Drop Box, and and starting getting some errors, but seemed to have gotten in under control by getting Avira, and was going to get SuperAntiSpyware too, but it gave me a registry error when I tried to install it, which means I need to find a way to repair the thing, and I've got no reason to think it won't be on this computer (which is still only usable with the help of a DSL live CD) too.

Anyway, I need to go to Montezuma's now, so maybe I'll post more later.

THE GONADS COMPELS [Aug. 12th, 2008|09:56 pm]
MDude1350
So here's some stupid quiz thing:




Edit: Ok, for some reason it messed up completely, maybe from not likeing Opera, but what metters is the first time I used it I got a raven, then I tried again to see what was up with this undefined thing and got a fox. Either way, I'd probably go with an octopus or some kind of automoton or golem instead if either were possible, b/c they just seem more craaaaaaaaaazy. Also, gonads.

back form Robot 250 [Jul. 27th, 2008|11:58 pm]
MDude1350
I'm back form Robot 250. It was pretty cool, although not as much as I'd like it to be because most of the events were over except a couple that were just starting by the time we had to leave (this was the only weekend my brother had time to take me). I got some kind of wind up robot toy, but I must have elft it somewhere, despite having looked all over the hotel room for anything I might have dropped before we left.

Also I got the details for the program I'm makign for Xuanwu, and will be starting on it soon. Hopefully,

And also I might try to update this post later whn I'm less tired.

SQUIDOO SKADOO [Jul. 12th, 2008|12:50 pm]
MDude1350
Gardening is doing well so far, we've got a bunch of cherry tomatos and zucchini so far, and I've put one of the larger watermelons in the box I made for making square watermellons partly according to these instructions.

Also, I might as well point out that I made this page on Squidoo because I hear about modular device things, but then I forget what they're called and can't find them again because nine times out of ten they never become more than someone's odd side project. I guess I could just bookmark them, but this just seems kind of neater, and I might as well use my Squidoo accoutn fo something. Plus, I can use this from any of my computers, so that's kind of neat too. Also, Squidoo can give you moneys, but I probably won't be putting any paticular effort into making any through this.

Oh, and also, my brother will be taking me to Robot 250, so that's really cool.

Update after over a month! [Jun. 20th, 2008|07:32 pm]

So I went to the Pittsburgh Comicon with my brother, and it was pretty awesome. I got some sketches at the con, I might remember to finish scanning them and put them up here. One interesting thing was, my brother goes to the Comic Geek Speak forums, and he took me to some restaurant that had invited the forum members over during the con. There was an interview in which I commented on the food, but I haven't listened to it yet (or more than one, those things are pretty long). Now we're both invited to another comic convention, and he's pretty excited on going.

However, there's something else I'd like too go to, that being the 250th anniversary of Pittburg. Or rather, to Robot 250, the robotics thingamagig that the University of Pittsburg is holding, althouhg I could go see some other stuff too. Hopefully I'll be able to get to go. Also my sister may of may not be interested in going to thiis, which would be nice.

I downloaded the Spore creature creator kit, and made a few creaures. It was really fun seeing what kind of animals I could make, even with the limited parts of the trail version, but not having an EA account apparently means saving dosen't work properly. I guess I'll get one of those.

Also, the peppers in the garden ripened. YEAH! They're extra super spicy, and we might make some chillie with it.

Learning Java has gotten marginally better if I read about some of the built in classes and used them. Also I learned some Python before I realised that, and I might use it when I actualy make a big project, since form what I've read about it it's easier to maintain.

VIRTUALY ACCEPTABLE [Apr. 14th, 2008|07:17 pm]

Today, I downloaded Damn Small Linux, and am now running it in Microsoft Virtual Machine. That's pretty much it, really, but it's pretty fun doing this. I was going to burn a DVD or Fedora Core or Debian, but my brother has the only DVD burner, and he says he dosn't have the software to make bootable disks with it. I'd think something lie that would come with whatever default program uses it, but he seems pretty sure about it, so I'll leave it at that. Allthugh it really dosn't do much aside from let me mess around with something marginally different, Im glad I got this. Maybe I'll be able to get some stuff done soon, like finishing my Java lessons or learning to drive, although I'm getting distracted from the former pretty easily, and latter I can't do unless someone has the time to take me practicing. And by someone I mean my mom, since she's the only person who'll do it, and she has about a hundred things to do every day anyway.

ALSO: For some reason, the food Mom was going to cook for dinner was spoiled, even though we got it recently, so now we're getting food from Geroge's, one of two small stores within a few minutes of the house. I'll put this in the "mystery" pile in case anything else develops on the matter.

ALSO AGAIN: I should probably get some more RAM for this computer.

EVENTS OF TIME: NOW [Apr. 12th, 2008|05:05 pm]
MDude1350
My brother is going to take me to the Pittburg Comicon this month, which is pretty neat. Also, he's planning on setting up a website with me. Although I'm not sure what he's planning to do exactly, he's going to be designing the website and I'll be running the computer stuff. I'll set up a Linode server for it later, but for now I'm going to get something set up on a computer I have here so I can get a feel for what I'm doing first.

LOL wut? [Mar. 22nd, 2008|09:16 pm]
MDude1350
I couldn't find my wallet for a while, and then just now I looked right next to my hand and there it was. Most of the time I was at my other parent's house, though, but I thought I looked at my computer desk here before I went over last week.
