<rant> School sucks. I don't enjoy my classes. I just feel like I have to persist the next 5 weeks and then all the required shit will be over with. (I had to push all the not-fun required stuff off to this quarter ... I should have been smart and mixed up the not-fun stuff with the required fun stuff, but I did not.) Windows sucks. It's crashing and doing more dumb stuff than normal. I just rebooted my Windows machine into BeOS to FTP some files on my Be partition to my Linux machine, and when I rebooted back into Windows, it complained about some drivers and going into Safe Mode, and now I have 640x480 with 16 colors. *sigh* What the fuck? I need to pirate Windows 2000. Fuck you, Bill Gates. I hope your company does get broken up into a million little pieces, maybe one to fix each goddamn bug in all your products that we're forced to use because they're so damn popular (however that happened ... probably because they're easier to use than all the better alternatives.) How sad .... that dumb and buggy products win over in the market place. So I just started up x2vnc to use windows, and vnc won't start because of the fucked up bit depth windows is stuck in. And I can't change it, even though it correctly sees my voodoo 3500 and adi 6p monitor. I just want to kick it really hard. More rant --- homework this week is going to fucking suck again, kiss my free time goodbye. Grrrr.</rant> Okay, done for now. Surely there will be more later. I just rebooted Windows for the third time and it's working now... that makes a lot of fucking sense. Off to frisbee game. I'm gonna take out this agression into kicking the other team's ass.

School Sucks

Yeah baby!! I wrote a program that replies "Right on!" if you type "school sucks." Comes in quite handy. However, my prof. wasn't too happy when my friend showed it to him, and he was totally shocked that the word "sucks" was in my vocabulary. Guess he doesn't know how expansive my repertoire of vulgarithms is. :-)

Windows...

I agree Windows sucks. I spent my whole freakin' spring break with Windows. Only got one day of sun & sand... the rest was freakin' Windows. The first day out of school, had to go over to my step dad's dad's house and hook up their new computer and tell them what I meant when I said "Press Enter". God. Then, get to Alabama, 2 computers down there and 2 back home all got gutted by W95.CIH. Guess that's my fault, but still sucks because then I have to fight with Windows for about 4 days to get all my shit back the way I want it. 4 Computer = 4 Days... even when you actually KNOW what's going on. I am so happy to just be back to working on my own net stuff & good ole FreeVote... which would kinda suck normally, but now it's great. No more sitting and watching slow-ass percentage bars go across the screen.

Same here

True. I hate Windows. I haven't updated my Livejournal or checked my mail from my computer since Friday. I have no working operating system that I can boot straight into. Linux works, but I didn't set it up in the MBR so I could load WIndows. Windows..... thas another story. Lord help us. The software Microshit puts out is pure buggy shit (okay. Good for normal users who are too lazy to use other OSes and for people who have no choice because the only good shit is coded for Windows) and the software (MS Project costs like $400 and does crap) is priced so fuckin high!!!! Thank God for the Warez. And the fact my Dad has gvnmnt access to these cds, but not like I use em anyway. I download my software =)

Yeah..... it doesn't matter if you can't whoopass at frisbee, it's fun anyhow. I take my agression out in lacrosse (beating other people with my stick, or just pegging the ball at trees) and even though my team's record is.... 0-6 (don't comment. Blair has a bad sports record) it's still fun as hell.

Free Software

Brad, the new software shipment is in so if you ordered Win2k then you don't even have to pirate it! You can get it for free! :)

Re: Free Software

Word. Lemme know when you find out. I think I ordered Visual Studio, but I already snagged that from Scott's free copy so this software pickup isn't that exciting. Erik has Win2k, but it's a burnt copy.... a pretty shiny one would be so much cooler. ;-P

Re: Free Software

I am sticking to Redhat for programming and Windows for gaming now... No windows for me when I am working on programming becos it sucks when it crashes when I am about to finish my 50+++ pages of codes and best of all... I have to waste the entire day effort just because i forgot to press Ctrl-S... Suck Suck Suck

Microsoft should pay me $1

Microsoft should be forced to pay every consumer $1 every time they have to reboot! I would consider that a fair settlement...
