New Blog!

I'm not replacing this one, but I'd like to direct everyone towards a new blog of mine...

Journals of Cyrodiil

I've always been a fan of e-stories, so I decided to make my own using the game "The Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion" as a platform.

I'm going to base the story around an Imperial who is struck with wanderlust and decided to roam Cyrodiil in search of adventure and treasure.

Anyways, check it out, read it, comment, you know the drill ;)

Gaming is Good

I recently came to realize that gaming can be good if you look at it with a programmatic point of view. For instance: The other day I was playing Oblivion, and thought to myself "Man, there has to be a lot of if-then-else statements in there".

Now, this kind of behavior probably isn't regular in some people, but when your a programmer (well, this works for me) you look at things in different ways. You see software, and think "I wonder how they did that" or "Man, I bet I could make something like that", and you probably could, if you put your mind to it.

[Not Programming] Aluma-Wallet Sucks.

Well, I had bought an Aluma-Wallet for myself to take to concerts and/or maybe on the occasional hiking trip I like to take, but I was really disappointed when I opened the package.

Linux Mint Katya and Ubuntu Natty Narwhal

I've been experimenting with Linux Mint lately, and I have to say that I like it much more than Ubuntu.

Since Linux Mint is just a variant of Ubuntu (if you don't get the Debian edition, that is.), their a lot alike, but the biggest difference is the user interface, and what's included with your installation package.

Cloud computing is nothing new

People are getting all excited over Cloud computing lately, and I have to say that I'm quite upset over the fact that people are just now discovering this, and that they've instantly turned it into a pop-culture ploy to get money and other bullshit, and really, setting up a Cloud server is as easy as setting up a computer that you can connect to remotely, which people do all of the time!

My take on Flash for websites.

When I see Flash websites, I tend to exit out of them as fast as possible.

As a web developer, I find them extremely annoying, cumbersome, and straight up stupid. I know, this sounds rather idiotic, avoiding these websites like the plague, but I can't stand them.

When I see Flash used for things like games, or videos, it's okay, but I really dislike websites made with it.

Got my laptop!

Finally, I got my laptop!

I've been on it ever since it came in and I'm loving it!

I know I said that I would be putting Ubuntu on it in my last post, but I fell in love with Windows 7, after using it for the first time, and have yet to put it on here.
