Currently listening to: Iris by Goo Goo Dolls.
It’s been a while since I’ve written anything. I’ve mostly been brain dead with nothing at all to talk about.
I’m up late tonight, can’t sleep, don’t want to. Too bored to actually do anything, which makes me even more bored I guess…
A little bit ago I tried to find some decent chat rooms to meet new people. But I guess they don’t exist anymore. I tried IRC, but nothing there either, just idle rooms.
I miss being able to chat with people. Back in 1998 I thought it was so awesome, and I’d stay up all night chatting, I was only 14 then, but it was cool. I’m very anti-social anymore, but nights like tonight would be cooler to have people to chat with. Snap out of this anti social bubble or whatever that I’m within.
I bought a new domain tonight. Namecheap was having a 99cent sell on domains, so I couldn’t pass that up. Had no idea what to register. I’ve been wanting a domain to put all my old site archives onto, and I saw “Digiterium” some where, so I went ahead and got that name. I was about to get 57uff, ha which is l33t for stuff.
I have Digiterium set up now, but I have to fix the old sites to get them to work. I know I want to archive them as they were, but a lot of links need fixed and corrected, so that might take some time.
I have one of my very first Michael Jackson fan sites semi-working. You can see it at
I actually remember making that site. Was in 1998, and was one of my first projects. ha ugly as hell, but was fun. I remember using cooltext.com for the buttons, and was a loyal JASC PaintShop Pro user.
Webpage stuff was much more fun back then. I’d just build stuff, and have fun. Now it seems like more work. I want to use proper coding and have nice graphics. It was nice using HTML tables, and all that good stuff, ha.
I need to think of ways to promote MadBoard.com. The way I got the MJ forum to be popular years ago was to spam the crap out of other sites, but im too old and lazy to do that now. I think that’s cheap, but maybe I’ll have to resort to that if I want to get it going. I don’t know.
Writing this is making me a bit sleepy. So I guess I’ll write again later
I haven’t written in a while. Not much going on to talk about. But it’s been over a month that I’ve written something on here and I gotta add something fresh to the site, so what to talk about…?
This is an okay song by Blue October. It’s been in my head a lot lately. Was even in my dream the other night which was weird.
I need to quit doing anything on facebook. Takes me away from this site. I actually never really use facebook, I just get on sometimes to see what people are doing. I never played any games or anything on there.
Speaking of Facebook, I’ve been messing with Google+. To be honest I think it’s a huge boring let down. A lot of people I don’t know some how can add me. The site over all is just confusing. they say its facebook+twitter, but I don’t see it. Maybe the way it lets you follow certain people by putting them in groups? I always thought the facebook activity wall was already like twitter, but again, I rarely ever used twitter. Sometimes I’d randomly go to the site to read someone’s twitter wall thing, and had no idea what I was looking at. was always random like “@fishlover yes I like cheetos, but gold fish snacks r way better!” like what the hell?
I’ve been selling most of my sites again. I got rid of the MJHQ site for the final time. this time I’ve only sold the domain. I bought it back last year so I’d have legit use of the forum database, which I merged with Xello, so that’s all cool.
I’m trying to see some other domains if anyone is interested. I’m really not into the entire website making thing right now. I like messing with my own site here and there, but I dunno, I guess I’m just getting really old.
Domains I have that I’d be willing to sell are: ThenYouDie.com, rejx.com, wow I thought I had more than that. I have own probably 6 domains in total now, which isnt too much. I used to own much more. Mostly just bought and resold them though.
I need to start blogging about issues and stuff, ha but I hate forcing my opinion out there. But that’s the point of blogging. Then again I didn’t make this site to blog about what I think. I just created this site for the hell of it, but the point of the site is about me, so I dunno why I’m so weird. There isn’t a point to having a site if you aren’t going to write up stuff that people will read. So I dunno what I’m doing, but blah!
Here is a recent random picture of me I took and edited a lil bit.
My friend Matt (who provides me with this great hosting, check out his site http://www.HostMist.com) has been talking about this game called MineCraft for the past year. He always suggested that I get it. I looked at the screenshots, and videos of it, and noticed how ugly the graphics were. Too blocky, so I put it off.
However recently, I discovered that its like playing with legos, which I used to love (now I’m way too lazy to get them out because I’d have to pick them all back up when I’m done), which made me wanna try the game.
I am now inlove with it. I found myself one night staying up til around 4am just mining resources, and building my house, tower, bridges, etc. Was having so much fun.
I first started working on my tower. I made it so high that it goes to the very top of the map (the highest you can build in the game), so since I couldn’t go any higher I decided to see how long of a bridge I could make. I ended up making a sky bridge that connected to another mountain, which was very long actually. I died about 50 times while making it, but it was fun.
After that I decided my tower was too big to call my house, and decided to make a house in the middle of my bridge. Only problem with that is I can’t build it upwards due to height restrictions of the game. So I had to build house from the top down, which is way complicated, and dangerous in he game. But, I was able to pull it off. Now my sky house is about 4 stories.
I even put a huge waterfall on top of my glass deck, which also works as a quickly way to get down to the ground (you can jump in the water fall and it’ll take you to the ground).
I then got bored with all that, and decided to see how big of a mine I could make. Turned out to be pretty huge, but I’m going to try to make it even deeper.
Anyways here are the screenshots.
(click thumbnails for larger pics)
Anyways, this game is super amounts of fun!
You can check it out and buy it here:
Was bored. Wanted to test video on my iPhone.
Just messing around saying random stuff.
Learning tricks and so on. so, someday maybe just maybe I’ll be able to make a cool video.
Haha, Every few weeks I make a backup dvd of all my pictures and stuff, and over the years I’ve accumulated A LOT. I have a whole Disc Booklet of them dating back to 2003 and I figured it was about time to redo my backups. So I’ve been taking those back up discs which were dvd5 (4.7gb), and removing all the non-important files off of them, and merging them with other discs to dvd9 (8.5GB), So far I took probably about 40+ discs and merged them into like 5, which is a pretty good deal.
Anyways, I looked over and saw this, and busted up laughing:
The foam things are the padding or whatever that comes with a bulk of blank discs. I randomly took them out and put them to the side, which ended up on top of an old disc.
Anyways, that made me giggle.
I wanted to capture some more pictures of Dragonflies. They are such beautifully amazing creatures. I still haven’t replaced that Canon camera I wrote about a week or so ago. It works fine, I just have to always make sure that there aren’t any spots on the sensor, which is done by flicking it, ha. I think because of that my macro auto focus is messed up, which makes it hard to focus on little things up close. I tried and tried to get some good shots.
While observing the dragonflies, I noticed that they actually have a type of wiper that is above their eyes on both sides of their head. It reminded me of a windshield wiper on a car. It would randomly wipe across their their eyes. They have pretty huge eyes as well. I guess it makes sense that they would have those since their eyes are actually so huge! They are really beautiful.
The last picture of one that I posted last week was gold and black. The ones I saw today were light blue and black, and some were green and black.
It was very hard to get them to trust me. I took so many shots, but very few came out decent. I didn’t get the ones that I wanted, or hoped to get though.
I have no idea what type of bug this is. There were a few of them in the pool, so I saved them. This bug actually had a baby spider on it, and some little nat like bug. The baby spider happily hopped off the weird bug onto me, and I let it climb onto a leaf in a tree.
ha, that’s pretty much it. Photography day I guess
