3:59 pm - Moving blog
Pretty sure I'll be moving to a new blog software soon. Getting spam comments now on LJ, plus LJ doesn't look too good when a potential employer finds that you use LJ. Might move to Blogspot or something, not sure. Suggestions?

2:07 pm - New computer
Haven't been here in a while. >_> More on life later.

Built and assembled a new computer:

RAM$130MEM 2Gx3|CORSAIR TR3X6G1600C8 G
PSU$60PSU RAIDMAX | HYBRID2 RX-730SS 730W
CPU fan/heatsink$21ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2 92mm
CPU$235Intel Core i7 Processor i7-920 2.66GHz 8MB LGA1366 CPU
Case$10 (orig $100)CASE ANTEC|NINE HUNDRED BK RT
Motherboard$280SERVER_MB ASUS|P6T WS PRO X58 R
Video card$250XFX HD-585X-ZNFC Radeon HD 5850 1GB 256-bit DDR5

Case and motherboard together saved me that $90. Video card was a gift. So I spent ~$700, total was around $1000? Some of those above were already on sale too. HDDs, monitors and OS I already had.

1:11 pm - Earthquakes and more, oh my
There was an earthquake yesterday-ish. Well, the epicenter was actually in Canada but we still felt it here. I don't remember feeling any earthquakes ever in the 20+ years I've been here. So I was like wat.

Anyway things have been going great. Did I post about FL? Er, well I went to FL again as I do every year and met my new uncle/aunt (my only ones) who were my grandfathers kids (but not with my late grandmother). I have a small family and so it's weird having family members aside from parents/grandparents. Not used to family emailing me asking stuff, lul. They're nice people though and I had fun. Pictures are up on my Facebook.

I also went to Vegas the week after I got back to visit my gf, had a fantastic time. Never been to Vegas, although we were only around the strip for 3 days (since she had to work) but I didn't go to see Vegas obviously. We got rickrolled at IHOP, stayed at the Excalibur, saw the Tournament of Kings... but never gambled, lawl. She'll be visiting here in Aug since KISS is playing in town (wtf, why my small town) although only staying for 3 days. :( Pictures are up on Facebook, of course. We've talked about her moving in and want, but nothing definite yet since her best friend just moved to Vegas.

Otakon is coming up. Friends want me to cosplay.

I still owe some taxes since the quarterly estimates weren't enough.

Having a great time in FFXI. New update came out, level cap went up to 80. Oh yeah, I hit 75 before the update.

9:08 pm - Soda
I plan to give up soda sometime in the future, but I don't know what I'll replace it with. Water is ugh, tea/coffee is blech. I dunno. Diet stuff is disgusting.

I'm going to FL in late May, then Vegas shortly after that. :D

Still in season 2 of the TF2 league as captain of the Butt Pirates. Arrrr.

Oh and I signed up on this thing: http://www.formspring.me/Zenoxio

3:50 pm - Stuff
Let's see, what's happening...

I went to Ohio for a bit to visit family.

I'm now in a long distance relationship.

My grandmother in FL passed away. I may go to FL within the coming months.

Roommate is starting to work at my job, training for a week to see how it goes.

I got into the Lego MMO beta. But not FF14. I picked up FF13 earlier than planned for the FF14 codes. Today I'm having a Pokemans party for Heart/Soul with roommates and friends.

Was somewhat sick for a week but mostly over that.

10:46 pm - BIYG is now playable via Facebook
Yeah... I feel dirty.
http://www.facebook.com/apps/application.php?id=156908136016

Developing the app wasn't that bad. The documentation for the API was somewhat confusing since I was using an iFrame, but I got it working. But Facebook approved it for a directory listing, so it works out.

I then later had the (bad) idea of using the tab to show character stats. Well, it was one hell of a hackish job. The game doesn't know Facebook existed, so I couldn't use the API.

Let's just say I got it done.

4:58 pm - Alice in Wonderland syndrome
When I was a kid, I used to have these weird experiences where I felt like everything around me was smaller and I was zoomed out from my brain. Hard to describe, but you get the idea. Never had any later in life until one last week.

Turns out it has a name.

Used to scare the shit out of me when I was a kid. Last week I was just like "oh shit, I remember this".

3:52 pm - IM me
For anyone who IMs me or wants to IM me, please use my AIM from now on. My MSN has been getting hit with a massive amount of spam, so I had to restrict my privacy settings to only those on my buddy list. Meaning even if you add me, you can't IM me.

12:09 am - Yet another roommate
Looks like I'm getting another roommate. As my current roommate is (she's working at Taco Bell right now), he's also an admin on my game.

Taxes done and paid, was somewhat low on money after taxes but getting back up there.

Been playing FFXI a lot recently, some TF2 while waiting for new RPGish update and Sniper update.

Gave WoW another chance with a 10 day trial. FOR THE HORDE! Still didn't change my mind about what I think of it.
