NHD

I went to the state competition for NHD today... all 7 hours of it. 'Twas very disorganized, I spent about half the time wandering around the college campus it took place on. However, it paid off in the end; I got first place in the "Junior Individual Documentaries" category, and I get to go to D.C. to compete in the Nationals. I'm the only person from my school to go though, so I won't know anyone there.

Fight Micro$oft!!!11one!! elevenexclamationmark

I recently downloaded off Shareaza an .iso of Microsoft Windows XP Pro SP2, a $300 file! I haven't got a chance to burn it yet, to tell if it is real; I will do that tonight. However, if it is real. it could come in handy... about 6 or 7 computers here at school, including the one I am on here in the Computer Lab, use XP Pro SP2. As the disc I d/l'ed is supposedly bootable, I can use it to gain admin access... heehee. As a final note, this file is apparently popular; I got > 600 kbs (!!!) on the d/l. Best d/l rate I have ever gotten. \m/. All for now, will post more once I have the disc burned.

EDIT 7/10/06: Changed title slightly to make it a bit smaller.

Schools Out.... A Day Early For Me

HA! My last day of school was Wednesday. Technically, it would have been today, but I didn't go in today, since I was sick. So I stayed home all day and watched Lord of the Rings and played CS:S. In other words: my day pwnd.

Norton antiVIRUS is Spam

So I log onto the computer, my mother has just finished using it, ready to get some homework done, when Norton antiVIRUS pops up with a message, saying it has taken a file, moved it to Quanantine so I have no idea whatit is, and deleted it, because it might have been a virus. After going through about 100 of these messages, I go to the quarantine folder to find TWENTY-NINE GIGS OF TINY ONE KB FILES!!!! How these appeared in then hour my mother used the computer, I don't know, because it takes me a couple days to download just a gig of data. I am currently deleting all the files; after that goes the Norton Virus. Of course, when I tried to delete it before, it told that me (the computer admin) did not have permission to delete it. This really pisses me off. I control my computer, it doesn't control me.

Scratches

Current Music: Det Som En Gang Var ~ Burzum

Downloaded an ISO for the adventure game Scratches... haven't had much of a chance to play, but from what I've seen, it seems kind of like Myst, only it takes place in a creepy old house. It uses prerendered graphics that are about the same quality as Exile's; in other words, very good. The music is also very nice.

I am now downloading ISO's for Jedi Academy, in preparation for April Vacation.

Yeah...

Current Music: Khazad Dum ~ Summoning, from the Dol Guldur album.

So... the last post was a (rather lame, last minute)April Fool's joke, if you didn't notice. I know, not very funny, but, well, I did it at 10:00 at night. Anyway, to read an April Fool's joke that is actually funny, go here. Not much else to say... so I guess I will wrap up this post.

Farewell, Shorah, and Ciao.

Moving

Unfortunatly, I will soon be moving. There was a slight shift in job detail for my dad, so within the next week, I will be moving to Japan for a couple of years.
