    reviving 10-year old accounts on the internet.
  1. I'll be with my family in a little town called Leesburg, about an hour north of Orlando. Aside from Universal Studios and Disney Land (world?), I have no idea what there is to do around there.
  2. So hey. I'm going to Florida, too. See my folks for Christmas. It'll be pretty great.
  3. I didn't think much of it until a morning news report emphasized fuel shortages in New York, and how it needed to be rationed among the mile-long lines. Most people weren't so much interested in fueling their chunky SUV's as they were for generators at home. Not a fun prospect to have a storm mess up your house and be without power for extended periods of time. And if tanker trucks with fuel weren't plentiful, one might assume other freight like groceries aren't a regular thing, either.
  4. The notion of a small chunk of Sandy making its way to Kansas is silly. ... such as seals.
  5. Nebraska isn't known for its tourist attractions. I guess the most magnificent thing to see is the Huskers' stadium. Economical living, though!
  6. Well, aside from the overheating issue, it's pretty good. I built myself a fancy desktop computer about two years ago, with two 22" screens and a big ol' keyboard, so switching from that to a little compact laptop was pretty drastic. I figure if I downgrade my hardware, I won't waste as much time, and I can focus on some things I've always wanted to get in to: namely audio recording/mixing, and flash animation. Right now I'm using Ubuntu Studio which tries to be Mac OSX with multimedia software built-in. I still beleive that Mac hardware is overpriced (although more stable than, say, Samsung) but i've grown to appreciate their software, especially after taking some programming classes. I intend to dual-boot to Mac OS and Ubuntu Linux with this HP dv9700. Today I've got my M-Audio KeyStudio 49-key plugged in, and I've only just got it to work and make some noise with some soundfonts.
  7. Our family used to live in Texas about 3 years ago, at which time we all moved to Nebraska. Dad got a job offer in Florida, so both parents moved there and left myself and my brother here in Nebraska, since we're big kids and can take care of ourselves and responsibility whatnot. They're about an hour north of Orlando, if I remember right.
  8. I drive a '96 Ford Ranger pickup. It's kind of those small-medium kinds of pickup trucks, the appropriate size so that it's not too small to be self-defeating, but big enough to actually carry something. You should break your resolve and get one. also DOOD I WENT TO SEE BIRDEMIC TOO with those Riffrax Live guys and now my bros and i seek to invest in slrpnls. If we don't, birds will... behave violently in a way that defies all description.
  9. As super-exciting as the midwest is, it wasn't my first choice of living conditions. I wouldn't call it unpleasant, though. Just a lot of corn and college students. I maintain that there are only two cities in my state, and lots of populated truck stops. I'm in Lincoln, which tries really hard to be a capitol city. I've been to Omaha only a handful of times.
  10. oh gads, my past-self embodies effectively every behavior that I find irritating today. I think my past-self would find the 2012 model to be super boring.
  11. My folks moved to Florida several months ago, and here's their first hurricane! Also some important friends of mine in Virginia and New York who I haven't heard from for a few weeks... I can only hope for the best.
  12. well let me just swing by a month later to check on my thread here Last year I made an unwise investment in a first-generation Samsung Galaxy Tab which was obsolete before a month of ownership. Good job, Samsung. I'm never buying from those guys again. Of course, I can still use it as an oversized mp3 player, so... there's that. I've since upgraded to a laptop with the most dreadful habit of heating up to about 70C by just sitting idle. I'll keep myself occupied with this until I fix the copper heatsink one of these days. And that's my cheap hardware story. Is Hampsterking still around? Last I checked he was super old.
  13. if this site had a mobile version, i'd be more responsive. Ill post some proper responses once i get a real keyboard- ive got an outdated 7" tablet i use to check in on things.
  14. nothing but the best for my old droogs and lewdies. So I hear lots of people are off having birthdays, getting married and the like. How's that all going for you? Last time I checked, we were a lot of 12-year-olds spouting off whatever comes to mind without any thought. That's what I did, anyway. Since then, I tried moving on from childhood habits and went on to more "grown up" things online, which almost exclusively meant logging upward of 30,000 hours playing PC games online. I ended up getting a job that allowed purchase of more software and shenanigans, I've since realized that I've wasted several years with nothing to show for it, and pretty much abandoned my lifetime hobbies, not exclusively gaming, but any and all computer-related activity, including my planned career path of programming. And, let me tell you, there's a really cool world outside. I've been part of more meaningful hobbies, peers, relationships, employment, and in the past year I've pretty much changed every aspect of my life. I'd just about completely forgotten about my old stomping grounds here. Occasionally while browsing lists of online contacts i've accumulated, downsizing wherever possible, Kat's presence reminded me of that one forum I'd always go to when I was a kid. We totally met there, you know. Like ten years ago. So that's the last four to five years since my last check-in. I've recently picked up the art of chain mail crafting, more than once I've participated in medical research studies and indirectly helped in the efforts against cancer, (a fancy way of describing how I'm being paid to be a lab rat) and I've held a relationship together for a bit over a year with the loveliest of exceptionally short ladies. I've gathered, from my brief tour, that only Horatio and Topazia stop by lately. I'll just use my wizard powers to suggest other users swing by, too. By the way, I'm totally a wizard, now. I forgot that part.
  15. well next time you swing by exotic Nebraska, I know of some airports that are fully compatible with most modern aircrafts.
