I took these pictures the other day of a rainbow that appeared after a much needed rain storm.
I was surprised when i got home and looked at the pictures and saw that there were actually two rainbows. I only seen the bottom one in person, but you can clearly see there is another one right above it. Super cool
I stitched many of the pictures together to get a much larger complete rainbow. Ha.
Anyways i wanna create a “photography” section on this site, and this will kick it off
(click thumbnails to see the much larger full image)
So I’m a member of a large tech forum, and we post on screenshots of our desktops. Basically so we can show each other our wallpapers and how we have it all set up. Geeky i know, ha but I decided to go ahead and start posting these on here. might be interesting.

Edit: April 25th 2010:
I thought maybe i should provide more info, ha. Some people on the tech forum asked questions about the wallpaper and weather program, and such, which made me think i should just include it here as well.
You can get the wallpaper here:
time, weather, calendar app is Rainlendar. I’m not too sure where to get the actual skin that im using. It’s always hard for me to find, but as soon as i find it again i’ll post. Alot of people are using it right now so it shouldnt be too hard to find.
may 6th 2010 – Found it! ha reformated my computer, so i had to search for the skin again. here it is
OS is Windows 7. I LOVE IT!
Once there was a apple, This was a pretty apple. It was so shiny and red. it was a pretty red apple. and shiny. But, As beautiful as this apple was. It did not have any friends. The apple just wanted a friend. but, Couldn’t ever get one. Maybe all The other apples Were jealous of the pretty shiny apple and didn’t want anything to do with the apple. But, The apple just wanted a friend! Its not it’s fault the it has flawless beauty! It has feelings too!
One day the apple was alone walking. Singing a song, And some older apple came up. This apple had worm holes and everything and was old and smushy. It told the pretty apple " Would you like some drugs" and the pretty apple thought about it. And he thought "Well maybe he’ll be my friend if i do some drugs" So the apple did some drugs with the older ugly apple. and The pretty apple was then addicted.
The pretty apple did drugs everyday! That’s all he did. Wake up. Do drugs.. stay awake for a couple of days… Doin drugs… But, the apple wasn’t pretty no more. Oh.. No he wasn’t. he was a ugly apple now.
Only ugly apples do drugs! It makes their pain go away…
So, Now the ugly apple is ugly and does drugs. But, Since he is ugly. Everyone loves him and he has tons of friends!
Now, Drugs might have solved this apples problems. But.. Its with apples. Drugs dont work like that for humans and beavers. Drugs seem to ruin human’s and beaver’s lives! So never do drugs.. unless Your a pretty apple It’ll make everything Alright!
In the past two weeks I’ve received two anonymous messages from people who were using the Live Messenger app that I had on this site. I wouldn’t even be surprised if it was a the same person.
Anyways the messages basically said “Your site looks like something from 1998” ha or something weird like that.
What’s funny is that they were actually trying to be offensive, and talk trash, and i find that hilarious, because, WHO CARES? Dorkass
I miss the internet in 1999. seriously. It sucks, and is dull and boring anymore. Back then we had to create our own web sites, and do our own thing. Graphics were cool, and everything had personality. This flat “web 2.0” crap is boring. Serious. I hate it.
I take it as a compliment to say my site looks like something from back then. I love it.
I am a member of a couple web design/web master forums, and sometimes post there, not much. I think this dude is from one of them. I don’t get along with many of the people. They seem to take this stuff personal. So maybe it was someone i pissed off a while ago? Who ever it was, didn’t even bother to back up his lame ass statements, or even show who he is, or his own work, or anything. Just a coward.
I’m sure that i can make the most boring “web 2.0” site that looks like all the others. I’ve done it before, and its boring. I’d rather be unique, and create some tacky graphical website.
Not to mention that this site isn’t meant to be professional, or business looking. It’s not a professional commercial site. It’s my personal whatever the hell i want it to be. And I don’t do this as a job, or a business. It’s art and i do it for fun, and for whatever when im bored.
The fact that this lame dude took the time to call me out about stupid crap means that he knows me, i know him, and we already don’t get along, and he wants to be a anonymous fucktard.So whatever really. It’s not that serious dude. let it go. I’m sure you’re the greatest webmaster in the world, and me, i barely give a damn
Anyways due to me only getting spam and BS over the instant chat/live messenger applet things… i took them down.
Back in the old days (hahahaha) we all had guestbooks on our sites. So I decided to go back to using that method. So i set up a guestbook here http://www.joshx.com/guestbook that all you can sign to let me know you came.
SO please sign it. Ha
I am so in love with this game right now! Has to probably be the coolest shooter game that i have played since Perfect Dark 64 on the Nintendo 64.
I have alot of shooter games, such as Modern Warfare 1 and 2, TF2, unreal tournament 3, and so on. But none of those pulled me in the way BC2 does.
I think the reason that i loved Perfect Dark 64, besides the graphics were all the weapons, simulants, and all the people that could play (only 4 actual people, but the simulants had decent AI, and it was fun). So it was more than just a basic boring game. I also loved weapons such as the Slayer. In BC2, they have a UAV Drone which reminds me of the slayer. Both let you go remote and find a target without actually being there.
Bad Company 2 has all the features Modern Warfare 2 has, but more!
The maps are so huge in BC2. sometimes when i get killed i get kinda annoyed because i have to run a long distance just to get back to the battle. Luckily they have tanks, and helicopters that you can get on and get back super quickly.
I’ve tried going back to Modern Warfare 2, but i cant enjoy it anymore. When an enemy runs into a building, my instinct now (after having played BC2), so to try to blow the building up, or at least the wall so i can see him, and nothing happens. You can’t do that in MW2. MW just seems so limited now, and the game play that’s in mw2 is just a little bit of the game play that’s in BC2. There is just so much more added.
So I’m probably going to go ahead and uninstall MW2. Which was a let down from the beginning anyways. I doubt it’ll even play it now. I got many hours out of it, so its cool. I still don’t think that it was worth the $59 though!!
Bad Company 2 is the first “Battlefield” game i played, and i must admit at first i was weary about buying it. I felt let down by Modern warfare 2, and as i said, i didn’t think that it was worth the money. So i was very weary about purchasing another game. Also i read that there was no lean or prone positions in BC2. The no lean wasn’t really anything major because MW2 didn’t even have that, and i didn’t miss it. But No PRONE? Prone position is a part of war!
I went ahead and just bought the game, and instantly fell inlove with it! The sounds were so awesome. So much going on in that game compared to MW2. Tanks all over the place, soldiers running, was just crazy! And i haven’t even missed the prone. I’d love to have it, but its not missed.
I’m not much of a video game player though. I mean, i guess i am, i dunno. I’m not one of those addicted people. I just like to play and have fun, and video games seem to be that open door for me. I do get very bored quickly from games though. Always have. so the simulation games are my favorite because you can build and create (Sim city, Roller Coaster Tycoon 1 & 2, etc) and these first person shooters, especially Bad Company 2, are so realistic, it’s like you’re really there in the battle, and i love that! So, i just like to have fun, I’m not one of those people who can play a game 24/7. Although i did check and it says that I’ve played BC2 for over70 hours since i got it. which was a few weeks ago, which shocks me.
So my level in BC2 is 24, which is a “Warrant Officer III”, I have almost all the unlocks, but the Engineer class. I have all the Recon (sniper) rifles, and tools unlocked, along with the assault shoulder, and medic. Which actually kinda sucks because i have nothing else really to unlock. I don’t care about engineer, i think its lame. I hope they add more unlocks to the game. Was so easy to unlock stuff.
here is my BC2 signature that shows my rank, kills, deaths (i always die more in these games, ha), and other random stuff. I think it gets updated every 6 hours? dunno
My name in the game is “damnidunno”, so you might be able to find me.
If you’re into war games, or even First Person Shooters, YOU MUST CHECK THIS GAME OUT! If you love Modern Warfare 2, you’ll forget about it once you play BC2. It’s that awesome!
