Pretty much anything computer related except for Apple Computers, which has its own category. I run a custom desktop computer with Windows XP for video gaming and anything requiring a lot of power, and an Acer Aspire One netbook that I take with me for work. I also sometimes talk about PC news.

Leap Day?


So my desktop computer died on Wednesday or something. It's making some weird clicking noise. I have yet to figure out whats going on. I would look at it, but I am too damn lazy. Been doing everything through the powerbook lately. Sometimes I forget just how much I have to rely on the PC, if for nothing else, the sheer amount of data I can store on it. This isn't good. I keep getting more and more stuff to save, and I have to find a backup place because I need to test its second partition to see if it will fuck everything up again. Stupid PC. Curse the maker. So today is a fucking awesome day, weather-wise. Too bad I get to spend it in the library learning physics because I have a test tomorrow. It would be much easier if I could learn this stuff in class. That just doesnt happen though. It's way too early for me to be doing physics at 9:55am. History is interesting in class, but I can't do essay exams, so I am not doing well in that class. My music teacher decided our class wasn't about music, but instead it's about slavery. When we complain, he tells us "tough shit, you aren't listening. I'm one bad motherfucker" No joke. And my flight class meets once a week for 3.5 hours. I can't deal with a class that long. Flight classes always get the worst schedules. Always at night or 643 hours long. Then I don't know if I'll be able to fly this semester. Even if I do, I still hardly have any time in the day. At least I'm not working with any groups. That always brings my grade in any class down at least one letter grade. Last semester proved that.

Went to go see the Stow High school junior class play yesterday. It was actually really good. It was about this lady who was trying to teach Helen Keller and stuff. Yeah.... Playin a new game called Stepmania which is just a PC (and mac!) version of DDR. Its fun. Got 780mb of anime songs for it, dear god. Hmm what else...Got rehired at Six Flags. So did my lil brother and some of his friends.

If anyone knows where i can get 512mb of laptop ddr ram or 512~1gb of pc3200 for cheap (and not online), let me know...

Maybe I'll write more when I get bored

God Dammit

That damn 200gb killed itself AGAIN. On the very same day I called microsoft to reactivate windows. Lost my episodes of Sailor Stars and maybe the mp3s, though most of those should be on the laptop and ipod. Very mad...

Before break is over I plan to have at least an interface, if not a purpose for Aphelion and maybe submit stuff to deviantart if the hard drive didn't eat it. Oh yeah, and my pilot's license too.

God damn its late..

Active Partition Recovery

It's a Tense situation, but the data transfer from the bad NTFS Partition to a healthy FAT32 Partition began about 13 hours ago. Estimated time to completion: about 10 hours or so. 61.9 GB must be transferred.. There were initial problems, such as the recovery floppy disk commited suicide about 5 minutes before the operation. Luckily, it was saved as a backup of the disk was made about 10 minutes prior to that. Also, the backup 100gb housing anime and the remaining backup files was almost formatted. Luckily, the operator double tripled checked, and unplugged the 100gb drive before the operation, as to prevent any similar occurance when the backup drive was corrupted. Once the partition is copied, it is unknown how the data will be presented, whether the files will be ready, or a giant image file. Further operations may be necessary.
Hope I have insurance...

Computer decided my D Drive, which housed all my music, backup files, and documents was bad, and corrupted the partition while it formatted the other drive. Great, Just great. No more files for me. All the anime should be ok. Computer also decided Ti4200's are bad, as it just corrupts the desktop and makes the screen cut out a lot when the drivers are installed. Oh, and Microsoft says I have activated Windows too many times...

So I bought a mac:

Avoiding the subject

Well I'm trying to put off working as long as possible, so I'm playing with the website again. All my fans must have noticed my long neglect of this site. I want to play with it more, but I am still pretty busy. This Saturday determines a lot of what is going to happen for the next few weeks, so I'll know around then. I want to find a good way to do anime reviews and integrate them with the current anime page without the anime page becoming too complicated. You'll see...

I installed a lot of my old games and some new ones, now that I have hdd space. I think this is all I have installed at the moment:

Quake III Arena
Unreal Tourney 2003
Flight Simulator 2004
Combat Flight Simulator 3
Crimson Skies
Battlefield 1942
Jedi Outcast
Jedi Academy Demo
Jedi Academy Beta
Halo Beta
Half - Life
Ghost Recon
MechWarrior 3
Need For Speed: Porsche 2000

awww yeah!
