Yeah, home depot is a no go. They don’t have room for me, so I’m now officially not a De Pot member any longer. Umm… not much really happened today. Just work and stuff… things are going pretty damn good there. I think that the assosiates are getting used to me. The know-it-all of the group isn’t looking at me like a moron as much any more.
Oh yeah, I played Unreal Tournament 2004 tonight and I BEAT JESSE TWICE at it. This may sound like no a big thing… maybe even egotistical gloating. BUT you have no idea. Were’ talking hundreds, nearing thousands of games here. Think of the game you know best. Now think of the best person you know personaly at that game. Now imagine, if you can, that some switch got tripped in you, and suddenly you’re as good as that person… maybe even a little better. That’s how I’m feeling right now. Normaly I am playing at my BEST by getting half Jesse’s score. Playing that well I’m feeling that I gave him a little compatition. Tonight, not only did I beat him… in the second game he was THIRD place. I’m savoring this moment while I can because Jesse HATES losing. BTW, this fact adds to this days sweetness since he’s a cocky little punk when he’s winning. Alas, I expect to be severely pounded back into my place tomorrow night.
Anyw00t… I got payed… wonder how I’ll spend it…
Another day… another, not a whole lot to talk about. Well, Home Depot did call me tonight. Andy(Mr. Scheduler Guy) is trying to officialy deturmine that it is not worth Home Depots time, trouble, and money to keep the computer nerd with a pickey schedule. It would be SO COOL if they had me come back. It would completely suck as far as social life goes… but the money looks SO good too me right now. I can put so many things in my life streight and onward to better things with that hyper-boosted income. I could stand doing it through the holidays… probably until spring or even summer. I could get my car. Move out. Rebuff my computer. Get A+ Certified. Pay off Student Loans. And finally start saving for a house and a life beyond. Big dreams. Jurassic measures. Two words. Bring it!
BTW, the reason I mentioned re-buffing my computer… Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Just take a look at those screen shots and you’ll see. Yes. Those are SCREEN SHOTS!. That is what it looks like playing the game. Not perfectly life like… but technology is getting there. When you can see the leaves, leading to branches, leading to the trunks on the trees… then have light, and shadow on each part going to the right place depending on where the light is coming from. We’re talking aw-inspiring mathmatics. I have the screen shot of a knite on his horse as my wall paper right now. Have a look around at the Morrowind/Tribunal screen shots too see where they were last year. I can’t wait until 64bit processing becomes the norm for these developers to work with… more power, and very likely more speed. Drool. They have also done impressive things with the games AI too, but you can read their stuff to find out the goods on that. I don’t want to expose any more of my geekness at the moment.
Half Life 2 it’s coming out next month… it’s not AS pretty, but apparently is getting rated as the best game EVER by EVERY place that reviews computer games!
I had a nice relaxing day… didn’t do a whole lot again. Well, I excersised this morning, I haven’t done that in a while. Then I helped John diagnose my moms car troubles and apply a few simple fixes. Luke and Jessi came over for dinner, we had a roast. Mmmm beef. Umm… toped out the night with a little gameage. Last night I was elected to re-build a website for my friends band, 3 Day Girlfriend. They already have a pretty good site up, so I’m hard pressed to make something better. My site is coming along slowly… I’m deturmined not to let myself loose interest though…
Anyway, I’m off to the great bed in the room yonder, peace my fellows.
Another random act of mischif. Cats mouse in hand. Mom answered phone, I got a glymps of a mug behind her. Then she sat back, head blocking the mug… I took a shot… the arch was beautiful… as soon as I let go I new it was going right were I wanted it to go. Over her head and down then *PLOT*. I fall over with laughter and glee. I couldn’t believe that I made the shot, and the friend on the phone and my mom were cracking up. w00t
Kind of random. I was in the shower and I suddenly got Bohemian Rhapisty(sp?) stuck in my head. I’m pleased to learn that I have the ENTIRE song up there in my noodle. Not only the words, but the tones, times and the major instramentals too. I usually only get bits and peices on my brain radeo, but this one played all the way through non-stop. I should really learn to play the piano…
Yeah, and exclusive sneak peak for anyone who happens to look here. I just posted the my website. I worked on it almost all day on Tuesday, and have something that reasimbles what it will look like, the layout still needs a little tweaking. And I’m not far enough along with content to make it worth anyones while to tell friends about it in a massive scale yet. Have a look-see. The concept is there… there is one broken link that I’m aware of(ironicly it’s the live journal link). When that happens just click refresh and things will go back as they should be.
Anyway, I’m tired… it’s all in my head. I wonder if that’s a usual thing for one to admit about ones self? I’ve been confused, belittled, and felt like a moron so many times since joining this new job. On one hand I enjoy the challenge, on the other hand I’m a guy who usually hears nothing but praise about my computer smarts. It’s a little un-nerving going back to being the child, going over the rules to your favorit game on a level of intricusy that makes your head spin. You should see some of the model numbers on mother boards and chipsets and sockets and memory types and expansion slots. I understand each of them of course, but I don’t have every individual product detail out there memorised for random access. But at this rate I will. Then I’ll be an uber-nerd. For the mean time, I’m going to sleep.
Things in the works… almost there… so close. Busy… must go.
