Now where was this stuff like 18 years ago? It's weird for me to look back on things like this. I forced myself to follow it through...and after doing so I think I remember actually beating the damn thing. Very strange, especially because my memory said that I never finished it. Nostalgia and self-pity. Let's proceed now with the strangest web log entry to date...Oh yeah, and the first person to name the source gets a big prize from me. Look(5 times), Talk(4 times), Look under bed, Get mug, E, Break mirror, Get mirror, S, S, W, Look wall, Listen, E, Open, Talk, Fine, Attack, Listen, Drop mug, Look(6 times), E, S, Open, Look shelve(twice), Get scalpel, Open, S, Open, Attack, Cut pads, Get rope, Get water, Look(6 times), E, S, Open, Get bottle, S, Eat powder....OK, done with first part...might want to save...Now you should be in a dream...there are 4 seperate dreams you have to go throgh. This is dream #1. From here on, never drop either the bottle, or the water, until I tell you to at the end. Onwards:::>

Wow...I'm going through some of the web server logs (something that I admittedly don't do enough of) and ran across this link to an old photoshop project I did. That's just funny...I suppose if you keep a page up long enough somebody will find it eventually....the web is a wonderful and strange place.

I remade the intro page. But you probably already realized that if you're reading this. I really didn't like the feel of the previous one -- I think the new one "fits" a little better (if that's even possible). And yeah, in case you were wondering -- that's me at a young age right after I finished a monster game of Laser Blast on the Atari 2600. I beat 100k points, which I believe was supposed to get you into the Activision club and they would send you a patch...but apparently we never sent in the pic. :( Maybe I can scrounge one up on eBay some day...

You know, the first cup of coffee that comes out (before the pot is entirely full) is basically espresso. It's good, but I have a sneaking suspicion that it "thins" out the rest of the pot when you drink it. My brother and I caught Sigur Ros up in Seattle last Tuesday. It was a great show, totally hypnotic and drony. A good time was had. I also kicked his ass in the great-family-ping-pong tourny of '02... :) I'm having a really hard time NOT reformatting to install Linux as my primary desktop. I suppose I could keep a Win2k partition around "just in case" and also for those very few games I never play...it's just so much work. I really can't think of anything that I do on any regular basis that can't be accomplished (perhaps better) on a Linux setup.

Much rejoicing! Lots of progress on the LED sign! I now have a working display with full computer control. Sweet. There's still some work to be done, but I really think that the worst is behind me. The main things left are: adding/tweaking some assembly code, improving the PC side software, making a PCB, and finishing up some chassis touches. Keep checking back for progress updates. Oh yeah, and I also threw up a silly little page for the Rice-a-Roni PIC programmer. :) Stupid, but fun!

Wow! That's about all I can say right. Negativland never cease to impress me. Their latest creation, Death Sentences of the Polished and Structurally Weak, showed up in the mail today...and man, it's the best purchase I've made in a while. The book is fantastic, and the accompanying soundtrack is mind blowing...although admittedly I'm probably into the soundtrack thing more than most people. Dark. Raw. Sick. Amazing! This proves, once again, that Negativland are the m a s t e r s. On a similar note, I also scored self-produced King Missile III "The Psychopathology of Everyday Life" (yeah, you didn't even know they had a new release...neither did I!)...but I haven't been able to give it a good listen yet. Total props on the self release though...

I've been doing some additional work on the LED sign in an attempt to get it working in some form or fashion....and I made some scratch ass messy notes on that page to reflect that. I'm not entirely sure just how much I like the current approach that will require a PC connection at all times to change/update the dipslay (I'd much rather shove the stuff into a flash card or even an EEPROM somewhere so that the PC can relax a little more), but I think it does provide the most flexibility. And yeah, I still haven't managed to put a page up for the wack little Elmo guitar I sliced apart...and I still haven't taken a pic of my Rice-a-Roni PIC programmer...I will...soon though.
