Minecrafting is so addictive. Even if the game's about nothing at all, it's still so addictive.

I wish it had even more features though.

Hell yes.

I finally got hold of a new video card. Let's rock.

Even better, look at the beautiful day this is. This is great.

So now, without being able to pleasantly play emulators, I've been at loss of what to do. I could try watching anime (although I already watched lots of it), watch a movie (although I don't really have the environment to do that; I get kicked out of the computer very frequently), listening to music (although I like being productive), read a book (this is what would benefit me the most), or organize the data in my computer.

I guess I just kind of have to wait for it.

I think I said too much.

I definitely said too much.

New headset!

My brother bought a new headset yesterday, since my other earphones died long ago. This is lovely.

It's not a super top-quality one though. It was $70MX (equivalent to $7US) for them, and while the headphones work correctly, the microphone isn't as loud as it should be, which totally sucks. But hey, it's better than listening to my stuff with the speakers alone... in the living room.
I wanted to record myself speaking though. I still can do it, but I haven't installed Adobe Audition or anything like that yet.

The headset was made by a chinese company called San-Xin. You cannot expect something good from a company like this, right?

I like these headphones, I hope they don't break soon.

I just changed to Windows 7.

My brother took a stab tonight to get it installed, since it couldn't have been as simple as you may think; the disc drive isn't working properly for DVD's anymore and for some reason the USB boot thing didn't appear in the BIOS. Some magic happened and he put it to work.

Of course, I wasn't sure if this was a good idea given this computer's quality and status, but the computer doesn't seem to struggle as much as I thought it would. Of course, I have yet to move all of my files to the internal disk... and yet, although some quirks from the previous installation disappeared (and scrolling overall is smoother...?), I still have the crappy hardware that makes me wish for a new computer, so it doesn't feel as good. Even worse, I cannot play any of the Windows games because they're Hardware-accelerated. Goddamn, I want to play solitaire at a decent speed; not to mention all of my emulators don't run at the same speed.

I am still at the edge of reverting to normal Windows XP. I just think it doesn't fit Billy at the moment. That, or now I need a new computer more than ever.

...yes, my computer's name is Billy.

Google Documents

Took me long enough.
The only thing I don't like about this is that my pie charts weren't converted at all. I'll have to either recreate them from scratch or leave it like that.

Day by day I get more interested in all of Google's products and services, which I guess it's a good thing. I'll be sure to check the remaining services later.

It's time to show off.

You remember the 'databases' project I've been taking on since the last month? Well, I guess it's time I let the lurkers look what I have so far.

The databases are nowhere near complete, mind that. I am working on them bit by bit, even though I have no time restrictions; I just find it too dull to work on them all day. I do get carried away sometimes, but not every day.

The worksheets I've created are so far these:

They are a bit messy, but I've been eager to show what I have. Here you go.

I'll obviously update it tonight or so, so they might not be up-to-date. I am probably going to submit it to google docs one of these days...

My mouse is driving me crazy.

Besides having to reconnect it every time I turn on the computer, now it's making the computer recognize some single clicks as double clicks. It started yesterday, and this is very, very annoying. I often lose about half a minute to try to select a menu option (although time isn't really something I should worry about).

God. I wish I had a new computer.


I've decided it's a pretty good idea to start uploading some albums in my free time (which is all day); it's a pretty good backup resource. Why not download them from another source, you ask? Obviously, to keep my tags. This is not a full backup, but it's better than nothing. And I've started a My Warez database, too!
So far I've uploaded 3OH!3 - Streets of Gold and reuploaded LEGEND OF GAME MASTER -the 16 shot-.

Oh and by the way, it looks like the hibernation thing was a false alarm; Gensmom finally paid a bill in time!

Yeah, I guess that's it. I've been playing MOTHER 3 again and started to play Earthbound Zero.

It's March!

And with that, I must say my internet connection isn't safe. I might disappear in the next days. It could have been cut today, so I'm just being lucky now.

Oh well. It doesn't matter, since I am already preparing to hibernate.

Besides that, today is the day I clean up my online trash! I organize all my e-mails, my uploads and recheck my accounts every month. Of course, it sounds like much but it doesn't take much time, since I don't actually recieve e-mails, upload things or create accounts very frequently. I still clean up other things though!
I will also change my avatar today, setting it to this.

Other than that, I don't have much to say. I've been keeping up with my excel obsession, and my birthday is this month. That's it, really.
