My news updates are getting further
and further apart. Sorry about that. I really do have a ton
of content to put up, or at least a ton of things I've started doing but
haven't finished yet. Iíve been caught up in the infamous ďreal life,Ē
as they call it: school projects and attempts to understand members of
the opposite sex (word of advice: donít even bother trying. Females
were created to balance out logic. It's like the careful balance of good
vs. evil; logic vs. female). Um, Iíd better stay away from that topic.
No offense intended to any females reading this, but some things just donít
make sense to me, and thatís one of them!
New Anime Drawings
Browsing the MegaTokyo
forums has inspired me to draw some stuff. I have a color version
of the Midori sketch I did (a character from Fistful
of Benevolence), but that's going to be the POTW next update.
There WILL be another update soon. I have like 50 new drawings to
add -- actually closer to 70 new drawings (did I mention last semester
was busy?), but I won't be adding all of them. I need to make a traditional
art section to put them all in.
Matrix: Reloaded MiniReview
Aside from the sex/dance scene (really,
that was completely unnecessary), I thought it was great, especially when
Neo hit a few grand slams using a ball named Smith. But you should
already know how it is, because you have seen it, RIGHT?!
I guess not everyone has seen this
yet, so I'll explain it. It's basically several short films done
with a wide variety of animation styles, from nearly photo-realistic 3D
renderings (by the same people that did the Final Fantasy movie) to extremely
exaggerated human forms (by the guy who worked on Aeon Flux and, ironically
enough, Rugrats). I think my favorite short was about a ďhaunted
houseĒ Ė basically an area where data in the Matrix got corrupted, I assume,
and some kids play around, floating in the air, breaking things and ďrewindingĒ
the effect, etc. It reminded me of .hack//sign. .hack and The
Matrix really have a lot in common, actually, but I hadnít thought about
it much until now.
Need a Job...
Well, itís summer now, and as a college
student, this apparently means that I am required to have a job, or so
the Ďrents seem to think. Iím rather enjoying having time to work
on my OWN projects, though having too much fun makes time pass by all the
faster. Like I should probably be going to bed now. Itís been
light outside for quite a while. Shoot, what time is it? What
DAY is it? Aww, man, another week has gone by already. Ahem,
well, I do need to get my foot in the door somewhere for long-term employment
here soon since Iíll be graduating in December (hopefully with a 4.0)!
Paintball2 is Standalone and Relocated
Yup, no more need for Quake2 anymore.
Itís its own game; complete with tons of engine enhancements (this is the
primary reason why I havenít been updating my own site very much).
A new alpha will be released shortly. Also the site has been moved
since captured.com is no more. Iím also working on a new design.
You can take a couple sneak peeks here
the streamlined, scripted html source). These links may not be active

Malfunction of the Moment
This is something only I would find.
Windows Explorer: In the thumbnail view, if you arrange the icons by name,
move the files out of order, click on a file, then shift-click on a proceeding
file with a lower lexicographical value (should have been placed before
the file you first selected), the first file will be deselected and the
second will be selected. (it's supposed to select the first, last,
and all those in-between). You can then shift-click on a proceeding
filename that has a higher value, and it will select properly as well as
select the files it should have selected before.
Raise your hand if you understood that.
Spam of the Second
"Get dating today - It's fun, anonymous
Hah, what's the point of dating if
"So I went out on a date last night."
"Oh yeah, with who?"
"I don't know, actually..."
It's also not free!
