My dad had me install the Windows XP operating system (not) onto a friend's computer (which we are giving her for her birthday) and, well...I felt like pitching the damn thing out the window. God...stupid updates...

Oh. My. God.
Why not just drive a red hot rail spike through her eyes if you're going to inflict XP on her. I mean, my God, XP! It's like inflicting her with cancer, right!? I mean, what with those wretched updates. Ubuntutuno never has to update, right? It never, ever has anything it needs to improve because its... errm, YEAH!
...
But damn, XP!? That's horrible. She'll be having to deal with those updates which means she'll have to restart he computer every so often and be forced to endure almost 5 minutes of waiting.
And for WHAT? A system that works perfectly well? A system that, yes, could be a bit more refined and yes, it does have it faults but none the less does exactly what needs to be done!? And you let yourself be a part of this rather than kill yourself to spare another's constant suffering?
How can your father be so cruel? Even Adolf Hitler had his limits.

By hacker you mean script kiddie, right? Some little idiot who downloaded something from proper hackers so you could maliciously attack someone else, albeit not physically.
You crazy kids.

Hey, I just noticed your user name is Rosicurian. Aren't they something to do with Jesus? You know, the guy who told folks to only be nice to each other?

Good thing you didn't. I doubt your friend would appreciate you destroying her bday gift.

Oh, right, you're a Ubuntu worshiper. Guess that's normal ritual practice, then.

That's too much like research. It's so much easier to be fed information through other people than to find it for yourself. I hear it's the latest fad.

-----------------------------

Just spent most of the day with a friend. It sucks that she hasn't found a(nother) job yet, but it's great to be able to hang out with her more often. Now, if only a couple of our other friends would stop attending summer school...
Naivete
Huuuh, but I happen to like XP. sad.gif And Google is quite awesome and extremely easy to use. It won't kill you to type google.com in the url bar and type in the word/phrase you wish to look up, it's not rocket science!

Snail mail kills, especially if your destination is Canada. D=

I'll be honest, I never liked XP that much...but to be fair, my home comp is a Crapaq--er, Compaq, so that probably was the main problem. XP on my schools comps were just fine.

And I'm like...probably the only person that has no gripes with Vista. huh.gif I try to be as unbiased as possible when it comes to stuff like that. 'Cause arguing about it is akin to...I dunno, something else stupid.

But anyways, I'm up at the crack of dawn, because we're FINALLY going down to the driver's license facility so I get get my permit renewed...but this also means I have to take the written test all over again. I studied for a good hour last night, but I'm still a little unsure...

Tris - you really must be the only person to not have grips with Vista. Though I think my biggest issue with it has to be Vista tells you what its doing, and does it, you can't argue. Took me a little while to figure out how the hell to stop it automatically restarting after it updated.

I think I'm too rigid with my TV viewing. Watched the first 5mins of Bonekickers last week before vowing to never watch any of it ever again. My friends on the other hand say "yea it is utter crap, but its enjoyable to watch". I can't think something is crap and enjoy it...media snobbery I think. (A bit like those who say "oh yeah Twilight is boring until about half way through but it is still the best book in the world").

Ah another big member's Birthday has come about...where does the time go?
Little Washu
^He's sorta M.I.A. though...

-4 more weeks to go until school ends~
-Noh-con still hasn't updated. Since the beginning of March it's said "Sometime in September". An actual date would be greatly appreciated...

Subbers, where's my Mnemosyne episode 6? It came out the 9th [I think], and now it's the 17th. What the heck, kids.

- Ugh, work tomorrow. DO NOT WANT.
- I think I'll catch the 7 pm showing of the Dark Knight. Exciting. :3
- Damn, the Internet connection has been screwy for a while now but this is almost unbearable. Sporatic freezing up. I should probably send in a complaint to Time Warner.

Current Thoughts:

- I really need a nap about now. Or some nyquil so I can actually sleep.

Ah, Deviant V6 has finally buggered up for me, rather than just annoy me. There's a problem with the Replies section of your messages, i.e it tells you you have no replies even when you do. They are busy fixing it I have been reassured.

Think I might actually get some gardening done this weekend. Our neighbours ivy is slowly consuming our wall and I like to stop it before it decides on world domination. Then de-weeding and all the joys that brings...then planting my new Japanese maple. It's my baby, and I plan to care for it well.

Today I learned that a guy in my math class is 16. He's...a little weird. Like, today as I was quietly sitting and listening to the teacher talk, he just reached over and grabbed my pencil and notebook, drew a weird picture in it, then gave it back. After that, he asked me what my favorite Naruto character was, then told me he liked Gaara and Temari. He's nice and all, but just a little...weird. The teacher joked around and called him a thug, then picked on the quiet ones. After being called an evil mastermind, the class voted that I look like a psychopath murderer, because my hands are always folded over my face, kinda like Roy does sometimes. And all that in one hour.

3 more days until my birthday~(if you exclude today)

Well, things seem kind of tense in this thread right now. And I think I know why.

That's a pretty cyberbully way to view it, Popo. Why is it fun to bully people? Do you have a low self esteem?

I'm afraid I'm going to have to report this to my local police.

How exactly would the police FIND a 'cyberbully'? huh.gif Is there some SUPER SEKRIT way? *bopped for not being tech-savvy in that regard/a haxx0r*

In my opinion Heath Ledger's portrayal of creepiness was on par with Javier Bardem in No Country for Old Men.

I cannot think of a better superhero movie.

I won't spoil anything, but when you see it, you just might orgasm. The final four episodes are that damn good. Enjoy it, when you finally get around to catching it.

No, I saw a bit of it when my little brothers watched it and found it rather annoying. But I digress.

Oh my god Naoto in Persona 4 is a reverse trap. First an actual gay character and now a cross dresser, I'm pretty surprised

You gaiz are officially B& for not liking stuff I like. >:C


I find ATLA to be a lot of fun, and one of the best (US) kids shows to come out in years for sho. The animation of the fight scenes are fantastic, the characters are cute and fairly characterized (they mess up and make logical errors like actual kids would do, while still being adaptable and learning all along.), and the silly, self-referencing (occasionally slyly fandom-referencing) humor is enjoyable. One of the best parts though, I think, is how much attention you know the writers are paying to the fandom, and the hints they drop that they've been listening. Ember-Island Players, (the best recap episode ever. EVER.) was pretty much a direct love-letter to the fans, addressing many of their assumptions, theories, fan-pairings, and poking fun at them all along. ("Great. Another fan with ideas.")


And that is why I like Avatar.



Also, my sister and I stayed up way past my bedtime (I have a bedtime now, whut!) to watch the insanely long finale.

It was so worth it. Crazula, ohmygod!

I completely forgot that the finale was yesterday! D:

I love Avatar. <3

That is all.

I watched an ep of Avatar once!
Sister girl was upset because brother boy was being impulsive or some thing.
The had to cross some canyon because the awesome flying yak was lazy or something. Anyway, they meet two groups, one weak but smart/liked planning, one strong but impulsive (Wow what are the odds of that?) The two groups hated eachother because their ancestors got upset due to some "sacred" rule being broken.
Brother and Sister split up with Aang doing whatever. Eventually everyone learns to get a long and the tribes make up because Aang claims the ancestors were just kids when they fell out and it was just some silly ball game. Big twist: He made the whole thing up.

I didn't really care for it until it revealed he made the story up and became a good character in my books but I never tried to watch it again. Maybe I'll marathon it. I probably won't though.

And that is why I don't talk much about Avatar.
Toby-Chan
I think perhaps the only weak point that prevents me from getting too emotionally involved in Avatar is the fact that it's a Nick show and thus no matter how much they push the US-children's programming envelope, there will almost always be a deux-ex-machina involved that prevents actual deaths from happening. If it were anime, I'd probably get more intensely worried about the characters, but the fact that it remains a US cartoon means fewer surprise deaths/maimings/super upsetting stuff.


Pushing the envelope though- as I mentioned before, Azula's descent into unadulterated bat....tery. I didn't think they'd let a 14 year old villain, even a sociopathic one, come to an un-redeeming ending. But they so did. And I felt so bad for her.


Too much other stuff to squee about, but it was pretty cool.

The episode you saw was The Great Divide. It's usually considered the worst episode in the whole series. So you should probably find you a better episode to watch, perhaps Lake Laogai or City Of Walls & Secrets.

Holy hell, I just saw Dark Knight. That was....amazing. Best movie I've seen in ages. I am utterly blown away >_>

Heath Ledger's Joker is utterly brilliant.

It seems like I'm the only one disappointed by the Dark Knight.... Though, Health Ledger was AMAZING. I rather liked the pencil bit.

It needn't be guilty.

Unless... well...

Naw.

I guess I've just already come to terms with liking 'childish' things in addition to the traditionally geeky things.

(PS- make plans to go to Sakuracon. We are PLANNING AHEAD.)

All this Avatar talk is frightening me.

So now I command everyone to go and watch Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog before you have to pay to watch the episodes. Which is...like...later today.

...Or you can just stay here and continue. *realizes her lack of power*
