Different Codex Address

Charter went and changed my IP on me, so here's the new link to the coding wiki I've been working on. Hopefully once I start getting paid, I can afford a domain name for it.

Next Batman villains

Who do you folks think should be the villains in the next Batman movie? I'm hoping for Bane (like in the comics, and not lame like in Batman and Robin) and/or Clayface. I know what you're thinking: the new Batman series is more serious and less cheesy, and has no room for characters such as Clayface. Considering that the next Batman movie will be undoubtedly high-budget, I think Clayface could be CGI rendered as a "normal" person even when not doing cool shape-shifty things, just to put him in the "Uncanny Valley".

For the uninitiated, the "Uncanny Valley" I refer to is when a CGI character or realistic android looks very CLOSE to human, but not quite. You see that something is wrong, but can't put your finger on it... It's just not human, and creeps the hell out of you. Imagine something like this glaring right at you with a big fake smile. Now, imagine it on the big screen, splitting off automata and plotting to kill Batman.

Latest Developments

I just got me a Jetta!

Also, I think my internal IP in Worcester changed, so the wiki is down and I can't log into the VNC.

Orange 'til 2006

Now that WPI is (hopefully) over and done with, I start work at Pratt & Whitney on Monday. I'll be working for just one week, and then the holiday vacation starts. During this time, I'll hopefully get a car, and be able to drive back to Worcester for New Year's.

Harris Levels

In about 10 years playing Doom, I still had yet to play the infamous Harris levels. So, I downloaded UAC Labs, the last one Eric Harris made before he decided to shoot up Columbine high school. He didn't want the file spread around, and now I can see why.

IT SUCKS HARDCORE BALLS. At first, I was outraged at the whole mass murder thing. Then, I was outraged again by the resultant attempts to censor video games. Now, six years later, I am FURTHER outraged that all of the anti-Doom backlash (that prevails to this day) was caused by such a SUCKTASTIC level.

So I'm going to stick it to him. From now on, every year on 4/20, (the anniversary of the massacre), I pledge to celebrate the ideals of freedom and peace that Nazis like Harris hated. Who's with me?

I got Caty to play DOOM II!!!

That's right. She played up to level 11, and is proficient with everything from the chainsaw to the BFG 9000. I can now proudly say that my girlfriend has killed a Cyberdemon.

This has been my fantasy since I was 13.
