Thanks...for nothing, Microsoft!

And, so, the XBox 360 was released to the general public and video gaming as we know it no longer exists.  And how does this end of good games go?  With resounding approval, high demand, and a ridiculously huge amount of hype.

Y\'know what, Microsoft?  Screw you.  You have no need to be in the arena of games.  Stick to what you do best and work on OS\'s and Office programs.  Maybe if you weren\'t so damn focused on the 360 you could actually make a better Windows, one that could get approval of all users, Mac and Linux people especially.

But what do you people do?  Attempt to enter the realm of console gaming and appeal to people that normally don\'t play video games.  Do you know why appealing to them is bad?  Because you then get people playing games that they don\'t even realize are horrible; you can get away with making/releasing cut-and-paste-and-dry first person shooters that do basically nothing different than other first person shooters.  And so, you go on to release a whole bunch of crappy games, many of which are already out on other consoles, and attempt to make things look better.  Well, they look better, but y\'know what?  Things are still better looking on the PC than the 360.

You may have Rare and you may have Tecmo.  But, y\'know what?  I don\'t give a rat\'s patooty.  Have your DOA 4 360-exclusiveness.  Have your Perfect Dark Zero and Kameo.  I don\'t care.  Y\'know why?  \'Cause hyping about damn graphics gets you nowhere with me.  I\'m going to just keep playing my Gamecube and PS2 (and eventually DS) and be perfectly happy because all of the systems previously mentioned have good games, like Final Fantasy, Mario-nigh-anything (Nintendo really does put a fair amount of effort into each of the Mario spin-off games; they just need to make an outright Mario game again), Shadow of the Colossus, Tales of Symphonia, Katamari Damacy, Metal Gear Solid, Resident Evil, Castlevania, not to mention the countless no-news-but-awesome games that are on PS1 and PS2, like Vagrant Story.

Yes, I still play PS1 games.  Like a champ.  I still desire to play SNES games, as well as a few Game Boy games and Genesis games.  \'Cause they were really good games.

What do you have to offer, Xbox 360?  Nuthin\'.  A big whompin\' load of crap.  I can see right through you, you big retardedly-successful marketing ploy.  You truly are the world\'s biggest scam now.

I can hope that you\'ll flop all I want.  Unfortunately, I know it won\'t happen, definitely not anytime soon.  Because people are dumb, and you find ways of exploiting that weakness like a champ.

So, here\'s the lowdown: 360, you can go to heck.  \'Cause I\'ll be getting a PS3 (which is gonna be infinitely more gorgeous than you, Mr. 360) and a Revolution (\'cause it\'s going to open a whole new level of gaming that couldn\'t even be imagined until now).  And everyone I tell outside of my job...I\'ll tell them that you are the worst console ever (I\'d rather have a Virtual Boy than you), and that they should just wait it out for the PS3 and Revolution.

...Okay, I\'m done now.

So, yeah.  If you truly value gaming, don\'t get a 360.  Get a PS3 or Revolution or both.  Let\'s get to work on trying to get Microsoft to leave the realm of gaming altogether.

Yeah...  I really wish people would actually pay attention to what I say/use my knowledge/totally not ignore me...

*at work*
Me: \"Hey, how ya doin\'?\"
Random customer in store: \"Oh, I don\'t need anything, thanks.\"
(...I asked how you were doing, not if you needed help.  Pfffh.)

*at work, #2*
Random customer: (talking to child) \"Let\'s see if we can find the Playstation One games.\"
Me: (after greeting customer) \"What can I help you find?\"
R.C.: \"Ah, nuthin\', I\'m good.\"
(...Like, WTF, mates?)

*at work, #3*
Me: (after greeting customer) \"Do you have any questions about anything?\"
Random customer: \"No, I\'m just looking...\"
Me: \"Alright, well if you--\"
R.C.: \"When/what/do you have...\"
(I just asked if you had a question and you said no...and interrupted me with a question.  Ghah.)

*at work, #4*
Me: (after greeting \"guest\") \"Do you have any questions about anything?\"
Random Woman: \"I\'m a girl.\"
(First off, from a non-contextual standpoint, what in the hell kind of response is that?  When asked whether you want cake or pie, you don\'t reply with green beans!  And secondly, that\'s just bad stereotyping.  Needless to say, I didn\'t like her much.  ...stupid friggin\' %$#&%...)

*at work, #5*
Me: \"Hi, how are you doing today?\"
*Random customer totally doesn\'t hear me and continues to walk away from me.*
*I retaliate by not bothering to follow customer.*
(...You deaf/too focused/too busy to care?  Okay.  Jerk.)

...It also doesn\'t help that our manager has contacted everyone about their Xbox 360 and that we\'ll call them when they come in.  Yet, somehow, these people can\'t keep that in mind and continually ask.  Ghah.  Stupidheads.

...I don\'t ask for much.  I want to help people.  But, quite frankly, I can\'t help you if you\'re stupid.  If you\'re too stupid to realize I\'m trying to help you, then that\'s your own fault. 

Like today, I was running a little late to school, and got backed up into traffic.  We were at a standstill-going-to-green situation with a sideroad with lots of people wanting to turn right.  I signalled at least 2 or 3 times to move, stopped and waited mind you, but the driver did absolutely nothing.  So, knowing that there\'s lots of traffic behind me, I just move on...  And, somehow, this person manages to recognize the guy behind signalling the driver to go.  ...What the hell?  I felt really ignored/irritated.  I reiterate, if you\'re too stupid to realize I\'m trying to help you, then that\'s your own fault.

So, y\'know, maybe I\'ll just quit helping people.  It doesn\'t seem to do anyone any good anymore.  I want to help, but if one doesn\'t acknowledge it or pushes it aside, I guess it really doesn\'t matter.  ...I quit...

...I guess I\'m skipping class today since it\'s already started.  Whoops.  Oh darn.  I was kinda considering doing it anyway, but now that it\'s started and I\'m not there, I won\'t bother with it.

I guess I\'ll go to the KUC.  Take it easy, everyone.

P.S. A trip is in order.  I\'ve been stuck here doin\' nuthin\' for entirely too long; it\'s about time to go somewhere and do something.

\"It\'s about that time, eh?\"  \"...Right-o.\"

My last \"real\" speech for speech class.  In about two and a half hours.  Prepared?  NO!...err, oh, wait, what\'s outline, visual aids, and notecards...  Hey, I did something not literally at the last minute...  I bet that surprised ya, huh?

Anyway, yeah, that dumb computer science program...  One line of code I needed was missing.  Just one...  All it takes is one little thing to screw up the whole she-bang.  And I got a 75 on that one I totally foobarred by doing the wrong one initially.

So, life ain\'t too bad at the moment.  Especially since I\'ll more than likely be getting a few more hours at work a week for the holidays.  Like 20 a week.  Actually, a little more like 22.5 hours.  And all I have to do is help people find their stuff and get things picked out.  w00t.

Anyways, time to move on to other things, like making sure my classes I want to take next semester aren\'t already filled.

Take it easy, everyone.

...If I have time, I\'ll post an amusing picture later.

Computer Science Sucks, and Here\'s Why...

So, I\'m supposed to be writing another program that\'s due tomorrow at around noon, a little after at 12:40.  I\'ve gone through it in my mind again and again and again...

...And I don\'t know why my program likes to randomly decide to shut down before the end of the program.  There\'s no error, it compiles fine (meaning the code is in valid programming language, the dots and dashes all where they need to be)...  I enter in the numbers that it\'s supposed to find the biggest number that\'ll divide evenly into the two numbers, and it just ends.  And, looking at the code first hand, it can\'t.  There\'s no explanation for it.  It just can\'t end like that...  If it were only due Monday and not tomorrow, I\'d be okay and I could figure it out...

But, y\'know, I just don\'t feel like thinking about it.  And so, I\'m sitting here and typing while listening to Coldplay\'s song The Scientist.  Nobody said it was easy, indeed...  Grr...dumb programming.

It\'ll be okay.  \'Cause I\'ll work on it later, realize I made some dumb mistake, and then I shall rock it like a hurricane, as the Scorpions have done before me.  *suddenly has a desire to watch Aqua Teen Hunger Force*

...This program is easy enough.  I know the method of solving the problem is right; heck, I stood in a group study room at the MTSU library with a markerboard, marker in hand, and went through it, step by step.  There\'s just something wrong in the way I\'m doing it in this stupid, nigh-useless language.

...To put it in terms normal people may understand, it\'s like an American telling a French foreign exchange student that barely knows English to break a leg.  The exchange boy doesn\'t quite get this misintepreted message of good luck, and so takes a bit of confusion and fear towards the American.  Not exactly like that, but it\'s a parallel problem.

*sigh*  ...So, how \'bout that Chemistry major?  Anybody a Chem. major and thought it was good?  Or any other major for that matter...  Anything other than computer science...

So, I\'m just gonna forget I have this program to do \'til about midnight or so.  In the meantime, I\'ll go to class, then go play some Guild Wars while Marissa gets a paper done.  Guild Wars: guaranteed to make you feel better.  *cues the thumbs-up*

Oh, any good video games that aren\'t completely new but are for PS1, PS2, or GC that I should know about?  I\'m trying to get together a shopping list of random stuff to take advantage of EB/Gamestop/Barnes And Noble special employee appreciation weekend...  A larger discount than usual...  Tee hee hee...  Thus, I\'m trying to find some slightly older games pre-played to get.  So far on the list...

**Devil May Cry 3 (I figure I could give it a second chance now that it\'s cheap.  Maybe.)
**Beyond Good and Evil (I heard it\'s good, and I know it\'s dirt cheap if we have it.)
**F-Zero GX (I might as well get it; high-speed DEATH!!)
**Ratchet: Deadlocked (I know it\'s a new game, but it is only $34.99 preplayed before the discounts.)
**Animal Crossing (I\'d buy new simply so I could get the free 59-block memory card with it; I also heard this was good, and $20 before discounts, meaning half the cost goes towards the memory card!)
**Random PC Games (We\'re supposed to get a whole bunch more of the pre-played stuff that\'s left from another store; buy 3, get 2 free!!!)
**N64 with Episode 1 racer? (I figure I could get one of these while they\'re cheap, although I don\'t think I get the discount on the system...oh well.  It\'s not like the system\'s expensive; I\'d just have a hard time finding other stuff I wanted, like Zelda, Mario stuff, etc.)

I dunno.  Any ideas would be great.

Anyways, you all take it easy, I\'m off to class.

...Y\'know, I\'ll do the world a favor and just fire myself right now...

...Why do I wish to fire myself?  Well, quite honestly, I did the completely wrong open lab assignment for my assembly language class, turned it in, got a 40 out of a 100 (I don\'t know how that happens), and can e-mail the correct assignment to my teacher tomorrow for a hit in points.  So, what is someone like me to do?

...Procrastinate.  And make a random post.  Tee hee.  Like there was any other option.

Yeah, I\'ve decided that there plain isn\'t enough time in the day to spend time with all of my friends in a day\'s worth of time.  It was good to be with some old Riverdale friends today, but, y\'know, I also desired to hang out with Graham/Amy/Anna and peeps today, too, not to mention my long-time friend who\'s currently out of college due to lack of funding and caring, and Clint.  Can\'t forget Clint.

I was gonna go to the Rec Center today and run on the treadmill a good bit, as well as have a relaxing swim afterwards, but, y\'know, it\'s nigh-impossible to program while running.  Reading is do-able, but it\'s difficult to keep logical thought and plan out these programs I have to do while running and maintaining speed and wiping sweat from my face...  Not to mention that it\'s plain impossible to combine swimming and programming.  Computers and chlorinated water...  Yeah, they get along \'bout as well as a Nazi and a Jew during World War II.

Anyways...  Yeah...  Procrastination...  I think I\'m done with it for now.  Unfortunately, programs don\'t make themselves...

...I need a new major.  One that doesn\'t suck.
