I won't miss them that much.  All they've been doing recently are features, which seemed like filler to make up for the lack of real content.  Which is too bad, because I really liked them when they first started out.

What would you have counted as "not filler" so to speak? Serious question, btw.

Uh, I was intentionally exaggerating.

Ah, sorry! Glad to know you're okay then. :beer:

I don't know if this means I haven't replaced enough RAM or if I'm just good at it, but I've never gotten cut replacing RAM. :/

Yeah, I've noticed that I have gotten burned out with working on the same thing that I would do at home... Usually, after work, I didn't want to really look at a computer... but I'd have to anyways for various things like e-mail and recently, the site. In the meantime, my love for Japanese language and culture kept increasing to the point where I kept questioning if I really shouldn't have just majored in Asian Studies and focused on Japanese and had become a translator...

Yeah. I was kinda burned out anyway, so it could work as a break too...

General Discussion / Laid off!

So... I just got laid off. As soon as I wrote this, too:

I want to leave at 5 too... :'(

Talk about "be careful what you wish for!"

So! I hope to apply for unemployment and work full time on the project DS and a few others are working on. It's funny, everyone says I'm being cheerful about this. :P

But yeah. Not even a surge protector kept my less than two years old laptop from dying on me... So... YMMV. Not saying it's not worth the investment, though! Definitely worth it. Just, one shouldn't count on it to keep you on the clear forever, because it won't.

Granz... Calm down buddy... Just apply some disinfectant... ._. Or are you scared because it's an actually valid concern (which I won't go further into detail here since you might not want to reveal that kind of information). Just saying, if you're physically fine, you shouldn't worry too much about those cuts. Might want to also go out and take a walk around at least your block. Staying indoors all the time is not healthy in the slightest.

If only my bank account were in hex... :(

Imagine, you see like... $2000.00 so it's really $8192.00... I could live with that...

Not that it matters.  I sit here and whine about not having enough time to play all the games I already have, and then I go and whine because there aren't new games yet for a platform I don't even need to buy!  Excuse me while I go punch myself in the nuts.  :-[

I keep thinking that myself... (about myself). I've hardly used my PS3 (or Xbox360)... and lately, even my Wii hasn't been getting much use. ... I mean, I've literally been playing on my iPod more than on my 3DS... That's... That's probably very sad, isn't it?

I feel your pain, granz. My laptop died on December and my new computer had problems just a few weeks ago. I hope you get yourself back up to speed!

(And using anything that isn't a PC or at least a big tablet to browse the internet can be an exercise in pain...)

I asked it about the PS4 and 720 and the crystal exploded in my face and now I've got snotty shards in my bleeding nostrils.

You should sue the crystal ball maker for such poor quality!

And that was my attempt at a joke while with an empty stomach.


I've been picking some info up on the PS4 here and there and really... all I've gotten is that there's a new controller (that's kinda ugly...), cloud based backwards compatibility, an old man's head, and that there's no info. So, I'm still skeptical about it. Hopefully, there won't be any game's that I will want on it. I've got a bunch of PS3 games I haven't played yet, not to mention all the other games for the other devices I have...

I wonder what will happen in terms of exclusivity. This gen, I went with the Xbox360 first only to find out that I preferred more of the PS3's exclusives, and so I regret having bought an Xbox360 in the first place; just about every game I could play on the Xbox360, I could play on the PS3.

Most likely, I'll end up just having a Wii U this next gen. :P (or 3DS. I want to want a Vita, but I keep not having any reasons to).

sorry, I was literally driving back to work running late from lunch and typing this in on my phone.

You shouldn't be writing forum posts while you drive... It's not healthy towards your physical being.

in my own room, hooked up to my 27" 3D monitor, but where's the fun in that?

You've made me hate you so terribly bad, I almost feel bad about it.

you have to go for something you love.

I was going to respond to this, but I saw that you edited your post to include this:

What's really ironic is that I love to write now, too.  Isn't that just a kick in the pants?

And all I have to say: Yeah, it is. :/

Oh yeah... I was always ace at writing and reading, but when it came to math? It's incredible that I even thought that doing Computer Science was the right thing for me. I have Pokemon, a few teachers, and a friend of mine to thank for that.

(Pokemon because it was the earliest instance of me wanting to make games, the teachers because they genuinely believed that my poor ability in math was due to laziness than ability- and they were right- and my friend because he helped me keep me from becoming too lazy...)

I never thought people would be distro-hopping in their main environment... I always use virtual machines for several projects. Keeps every system nice and isolated. The downside is that they tend to be very slow (although it'd be enough for playing with distros or web development).

Ah, alright, d00d. :P

People really should back up a lot, specially before major changes... Never know what could go wrong... Like... KERNEL PANIC. :'(
