Ugh... March came to fast. Science
fair is due on the 3rd. Feb. being short kinda screwed things up.
Still No Perl
Darn... It appears this server won't
allow me to write files. This makes it a bit difficult to post news
updates... I'll get it sorted out soon tho, I hope.
Well... not really, but a pre-test
version of Quake3 for hardware manufacturers to test their stuff on was
apparently leaked. I don't think Wal-Mart has it yet, though ;)
Anime Scans Up
Yay! Finally got those wonderful little
anime sketches I've been doing in my assignment notebook up. Some
of them didn't scan too well tho. My home scanner isn't working anymore.
When I tried putting the scanner SCSI card in my computer, it caused it
to continually reboot before the OS even loaded. Needless to say,
I removed it quickly. I tried it in my parents computer -- It booted
fine, but windows didn't recognize it right and I couldn't get the scanner
to respond. The one I've been using at school worked ok for a few
days, but then the colors got screwed up and if I didn't scan in black
and white it would come out purple. It now also makes hideous grinding
noises and sometimes the moving parts repeatedly hit against the wall until
it figures out it can't go any further. I think it needs a little
more than some minor tweaking. This is why some of the scans look
worse than others. Check em out in the "art" section.
New SCSI Card, Headphones, and Blank CD's
(Actually yesterday's news) Since
the scanner hadn't been working (see above), I grabbed a new SCSI card
when I was at Best (Worst) Buy (I only got stuff there since I had a gift
certificate from Christmas). I've gotta get an adapter for it tho
-- not the same plug. I'm sure I can find a cable or adapter that
will fir in one of the fifty thousand plugs in the back of that scanner
tho :) I also got some headphones: Koss TD-61. The only nice
looking pair they had there... $25, not bad. They have a frequency
response of 25-15,000 Hz -- not awesome, but... well, compared to my computer
speakers, I guess they are :) With the remainder of the money left
on the gift card (have to spend it all -- no money back) I got some blank
CD's since Ryan (Wyvern) just got a new CD-R/W drive. With my limited
HD space, it'll be nice to get some of the stuff off there and onto CD's.
