file systems suck balls! games, and i create the best news.

the answer to yesterday’s quote (black text. select to view): 12 monkeys. l.j. washington tells bruce willis about his mental condition.
todays quote:
“FYI man, alright. You could sit at home, and do like absolutely nothing, and your name goes through like 17 computers a day. 1984? Yeah right, man. That’s a typo. Orwell is here now. He’s livin’ large. We have no names, man. No names. We are nameless!”
if you need a second quote select the following text:
Someone didn’t bother reading my carefully prepared memo on commonly-used passwords. Now, then, as I so meticulously pointed out, the four most-used passwords are: love, sex, secret, and… god. So, would your holiness care to change her password?
can you name the movie?
(i bet moonflake can.)

i had to write a file system for today for comsci.
i haven’t finished.
i’m going to have to finish this afternoon.
its not that its difficult…
its just that i had to write a lexer for last monday, i had a test on wednesday, i have another test on this wednesday, i have a short prac handin for friday, and i have to extend the lexer into a parser for monday.
and i had a mild cold on saturday.
and i played some liesure larry 5 in stead of working.
i just couldn’t concentrate and eventually had to rewrite a chunk of code because i decided to switch from an array of pointers to an array of ints and chars that reference a pointer array to get the neccesary pointers.
if you don’t speak computers then heres a translation:
i just couldn’t concentrate and eventually had to do something because i decided to switch something for something else.
it was a pain.
it still is a pain.
but hopefully by this afternoon it won’t be anymore.
and for some reason my brain keeps wanting to spell saturday as saterday…
every time i have to write/type it i go to and search for “saterday” and it asks me if i meant saturday and i have to go change it.
i don’t know why.
i never used to have the problem until i got this prac.

so, castlevania: portrait of ruin (for the nintendo ds) is going to have wifi co-op play. max 2 players. n-philes has a little interview thingie with the series creator: Koji Igarashi.
looks like their bringing completely new ideas to the game. if it works well it’ll rock.
and the psp is getting a silent hill game. silent hill: origin will be released in the fourth quater of 2006. magic box has a bunch of screenshots. it looks suitably silent hill-ish. the psp is picking up some nice titles. hopefully the psp2 will have better battery life and a cheaper price tag. (i might actually own one then).
trawling through the news to try make today’s post a little more interesting turn up no really worthwhile news. i started with local news:
taxi drivers threaten to strike again… big deal.
someone died in a fire… again? so what.
security guards are still on strike… 7 or 8 weeks now? i forget.
so i turned to internation news:
some dude trashed his ferrari… another car accident. big deal.
the greek orthodox church complains about the davinci code… tut tut. i expected more.
a girl lost her hand in a chocolate factory… unfortunate but not unique and its probably sown back on already.

maybe i’m just getting more cynical, but none of that interests me.
we need some real news…
something to do with an enraged animal, money, sex, and drama.
something like:
“crazy llama attacks naked couple in bedroom before dissapearing with their life savings. police suspect plot involving jelous ex-husband.”
now that’s news!
reporting ain’t so hard. look at the news i just created.
if reporters were more like me i’d buy more newspapers…
i’d also probably complain about terrible journalism and lies in the media…
not to mention that the saturday argus would become the saterday argus.

    do we pronounce it SATE-ER-DAY? i can hear the screams of “sayituhdayi arghis” in my mind’s eardrum.

  5. dystopia says:

    not only is it the saterday argus, but the other newspapers will be jealous, or is it jelous, that the argus started that sort of ting first.

    it seems this prac has generally b0rk3d your spel.

    And yeah, I can also totally hear Cereal Killer saying it, with that dorky grin ;) Along with ‘Of all the things I’ve lost, I miss my mind the most – Ozzy Osbourne!’
