Last Blog Before School

Damn... I guess I knew I'd have to go back someday. I really wished summer would never end (don't we all? ). So now here I am spending my last day of freedom at my computer. Wheeee! I guess I kind of am looking forward to school a bit, tho. Now at least I'll have something to DO for half the day. Also, my brain is probably mush after my summer (a.k.a. game fest) so I need to get it back into shape. But until then, I'll still enjoy 1emu and all its sauciness! Peace! - Mooney

In the Swing of Things

WOOO! First week of school done! Only 176 more days! Can't wait! This is only my first weekend during school, but already looks to be one of the best. My parents are out of town OVERNIGHT and they left me many monehs for f00d. I just ordered me some Jimmy John's, but the delivery boy forgot my root beer. Anyway, I just dl'd Crank, Monster Hunter: Freedom (PSP), and Blade Dancer: LoL (PSP). This weekend will be AWESOME! In addition, my friend's 16th b-day party is this Sunday. This school year

I'm Thinkin' Geek

Finally, a site that actually has useful stuff! www.thinkgeek.com Good stuff there. I plan on buying many, many, many things from that site. Like this, for example: TV-B-Gone Could be useful if it works with the TV in some of my more boring classes... They have many other cool things too. Laser guided missile systems, cathode lights, caffeine pills... I need more monehs... buy my computer... Wow, I'm really desperate about that, aren't I? MEH! Buy my computer.

I Hate The Internets

They are evil. All of them. Especially mine, AT&T Yahoo! DSL. It sucks monkey gonads. After AT&T bought SBC, my internet connection randomly dropped, tech support was as helpful as a cage of dead squirrels ("Duuuhh... reboot?"), Firefox started glitchen' out , and I'm trying to convince my parents to get Road Runner Cable internet. I am THIS close { } to convincing them. Wish me luck with that... Anyway, on a lighter side, I have decided to build my own PC. I'll give you a peek at some

Happiness and desparation

My R4DS came in the mail today, which is amazing since I ordered it yesterday. Only problem is, I'm a bit worried because of this: This troubles me because my R4 is gray. I guess I'm gonna have to wait till my microSD card gets here to find out if I've been ripped off... dear god I hope not! If it does work, then Gamecop and I have a secret evil plan for writing a review.   Aaaaaand now, a list of things Mooney has for sale: - PC (AMD Athlon 64 3200+, ATI Radeon 9800 PRO, 1GB RAM, 160GB har

Girl troubles

Girls are the most tricksy and mysterious beings on the planet. I swaer, if I could reproduce asexually, I would never have to deal with another devious female...   So there's this girl I like. She recently hooked up with another guy. He's a year older than we are. She's in my math class. We usually are in the same group when doing math exercises. She smiles at me a lot, and laughs at all of my jokes. Today, while working in a group on a math worksheet, she reached over to my paper and started w

Firefox 2

So I just dl'd Firefox 2 Beta 2, and I must say: I LOVE IT! It improves on many of Firefox 1.5's great features, like plug-ins and extensions, but it also gained some new features. It now feels a lot like Opera; Little [x] 's on the tabs, sleeker design... and other stuff. Another cool thing is a built in spell checker! If you misspell something, it underlines it in red. Then you right click the word, and it gives you spelling suggestions! Now none of you n00bz (<- it didn't underline that?!

DSpot 1st Birthday

Some of you may know, and some may not, of this nice little forum called DSpot. DSpot is a forum for talking about all things Nintendo from the Wii to the DS. It's still a small forum with just over 100 members, and lately there's been a bit of a posting draught. Also, today marks 1 year sice Twilightlink and Kobayashi opened up DSpot to the public. Hopefully DSpot will be able to last another year and gain another 100 members, which is why I come to you: PLEASE VISIT US!!! DSpot is a really c

Driving

About a week ago I took a test at Driver's Ed to get my permit. A few days ago I went to get my permit. And today... I drove.   At first I was just driving around in an empty parking lot, doing things like going forward, reverse, speeding up, braking, turning, and parking. Then I went into a residential area, where only one person passed me, and I didn't cause any collisions. I did not hit any other cars, I did not hit any pedestrians, I did not cause any accidents, and I only went up on the cur

Danzig's Freak Out (aka A Grande Night of Metal)

The Blackest Ov The Black tour came to The Rave here in Milwaukee last night. I knew it was gonna be a good night when I took a big bag of pocket change I'd accumulated over a year or two to the bank and discovered it was worth $24, thus paying for my ticket to the concert.   First up: Winds of Plague - Generic deathcore. Move along, nothing to see here.   Next was Moonspell - Pretty decent black/doom metal. Guitars and drums sounded awesome, but the vocalist could use a little work.   No show:

Crash

On the way up to my friend's cabin for our four day weekend I had my first experience of being in a car crash.   We were traveling down the highway at about 60 mph in silence brought on by the gloomy weather. The three of us in the back seat (the suv we were in had two seats in the front, three in back, and a storage area behind the seats) were either asleep or very close to it. Unfortunately, so was the driver. He dozed off, causing the car to drift across the left lane and off the side of the

Cool, I made some custom content blocks for my blog: What I'm playing on Kaillera, What I'm playing on DS Wifi, and Which colleges have sent me mail. Good stuff!   They're over there, I think -->     So, yeah... send me a challenge... go on #1emu on EFNet... make your own kind of music...     wewt.

Cold

It is quite cold.   It is so cold that I can not be outside for 30 minutes without my face totally freezing. And tomorrow is the SuperBowl! Thank god it's not going to be in Green Bay, or they'd be playing with an ice cube instead of a football, and Prince would have to wear a parka!   Damn all of you who live in warm climates!

Camping and a New Phone

Camping On Friday one of my friends called me up and invited me to go to his cabin in northern-ish WI for the weekend. Not knowing how fricking cold it would be, I eagerly accepted. He informed me that we would be leaving at 9:00 AM on Saturday and I should pack for out door conditions. Then my parents went into an overprotective rampage and made be pack a bedroll that was quite possibly 2 feet in diameter, with a sleeping bag, 2 flannel sheets, a pillow, and 2 blankets.   The next day

Birthday Plans

Got mah 17th b-day coming up on April 10th. Big plans. BIG plans. Sorta.   First, on Sunday April 6th, I'm going to see Behemoth (currently one of my favorite bands) and Dimmu Borgir play at The Rave with some friends (tickets are b-day presents from the parental units). One of the opening bands, Burial Ritual, is a local band I've seen before, so I know for sure there'll be lots of brutal music to be heard and hopefully pits up the wazoo. Good times are guaranteed, as well as a sore neck.   The

Birthday

Sweet. The big 1-6. Awesome.   Got 3 emails informing me that it was my b-day today. One was from DCEmu, one from MaxConsole, and one from Agozer. I noticed that the DCEmu message was more advertisement than good wishes:   So yeah... so far I've received a few checks which I am supposed to use to buy a Wii, and a mouse pad with a gel wrist rest (say that ten times fast). Later today I'm having a LAN party with 8 of my friends. Nothing but WWII FPS as far as the eye can see. It's gonna rock.

A new outlook on life

A few days ago, when Gamecop asked me to write a tutorial on DLDI, I had no idea how big of a project it would become. I wrote the first draft including 2 of the 3 Windows apps in just a few hours, but since then I've found myself using multiple computers and OS's to get more info. I've used two Windows PCs, one MacOS X laptop, and an Ubuntu Linux Live CD. I've visited chishm's website so much I've practically memorized it, I've talked on #dsdev for an hour trying to figure out UNIX commands, an
