Well it’s been a while since I’ve given the blog any attention. The reason for this is most likely due to school related stuff and finally I have some free time. Well I am busy playing games now which is a much more enjoyable way of being busy. However, I currently intend to start writing again this week as I have to things that I want to talk about. Currently I am pacing back and forth my apartment waiting for a package more on this later.

Busy busy

Well it’s been a while since I posted anything to this blog and it’s mostly due to me not feeling like it or having time. So it’s been had to come up with anything to post due to these things. I finally decided to post something since I felt like it today.

So what’s been going on then? Well I have been busy with my BA project as well as with other school items such as exams and  getting annoyed with my Japanese teachers. In non school related stuff I have finally gotten myself a new laptop which is nice and fast but not a gaming laptop, I have my stationary for that, but it’s great for school stuff. I got myself a Thinkpad L412 which only has the drawback of only having 4 hours of battery which I hope to fix by getting a 9cell battery. But will need to save some money before that. Apart from all this I cleaned my stationary last week and boy was it dusty but as a result it’s now nice cool and quiet. I have a project I want to start on but sadly it will cost me quite a bit of money to finish since I don’t make a hell of a lot of money on the side of my student support money so it will have to wait. But the project is to build myself a new Stationary with Sandy Bridge Core i5 2500k, SSD Raid 0, good GFX, and a dual screen setup. The thing is though that with the prices of SSDs the price will get near 20k DKK which I won’t have for a while but meh.

That’s it for now will have to get back to work since I have a lot on my plate which I need to finish.

Well Denmark has been colder than usual this month and in addition to that it’s been snowing a little. Personally I hate snow, not because it’s cold or wet etc. but because all the retards become apparent when it snows. Every year it’s the same thing, when we get snow, that some idiots haven’t really thought about getting winter tires on their cars, which should be done first thing when the temperature gets near 0, or for that matter know that they should clear their buildings of ice taps not to mention the sidewalk from snow in front of their house. Not that I want to get injured but sometimes I wish I would so I could sue some idiot for not clearing his sidewalk.

In other news. I am currently writing my term paper so been a little busy with that but it’s an annoying term paper though which has given me quite some trouble so far but getting the hang to it now so should be done in time. In addition I successfully downgreaded my MSN client to rid my system of the facebook infected MSN client which was soo nice to have the old one back which is so much faster than that new version.

Facebook, I’ve had enough!

Everyday it’s the same thing Facebook this and that around campus but that’s at a level I can tolerate. Online it’s different though, since websites have this Facebook integration crap I get very annoyed since in most cases it slows down the loading time and that gets me rather pissed off. This I worked around by using a Facebook banishing add on for my chrome browser which opted me out of that. That said, Facebook integration crap has made it into my MSN Messenger client. Now this is a message to MS “WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS CRAP!” I don’t get it MS, well I get wanting to be following the times, but you should stay they fuck out of it. The reason I get mad about this is that the msn client is now a heave and slow as a shopping cart with an elephant in it. MSN 2011 is the biggest piece of crap I have seen in a looong time. That is why I am opting to downgrade to an earlier version until MS get back on track. MS it’s an IM client not a social networking tool so deal with it.

To anyone having beef with my opinion about this…. Go screw yourself. Since I am soo tired of all this Facebook crap it’s getting old now.

*I want to apologize for getting so heated up and using swearwords and rambling a bit.

 

Dropbox

Did I ever tell you guys about Dropbox? If not I might as well do so now. Dropbox made my file synchronization a dream. For one I am not a person that uses my laptop for everything and this is mostly because I feel that laptops are good as mobile workstations so I basically only use them for work related things. This means I use my Stationary machine at home which I myself put together and therefore I spend a lot of time using it for not only gaming or surfing on the web but also doing school work or work in general. What Dropbox does for me in this sense is make sure my very important school and work files are backed up and available from anywhere really. Here’s a short demonstration video just to make it all a little easier to understand.

This video kind of explains the functions of this program. For those that only have one computer it’s great for group work through shared folders as well as a place to backup your files since you can access your own files through the web. If you decided to get Dropbox heres a link so that I shamelessly can get some extra space on my Dropbox account.

Thanks for reading.

Oh, Denmark!

Mankind puzzles me to no end. People find me weird but by comparison I find them weird. I can’t get my head around why some people act the way they do but this is most likely due to every person being unique in their own way. The thing that gets me time and time again is the way we behave. This blog entry will go through my thoughts about some things that both annoy me and at times make me shiver.

General public behavior in Denmark

Lately it has become quite the norm in the happiest country in the world that people have no respect for each other. What I refer to is looking out for your fellow countrymen and taking part in keeping the streets clean and safe. One thing I can refer to are the dog owners who don’t pick up their dog’s leavings. These people don’t do it because they simply don’t care about other people and the chance that these people will step in it. I bet these very same people complain about it themselves when they by chance step in a pile of dog shit themselves. These people aren’t the only people who lack respect for other people since there’s a lot of trash, cigarette buds and, other crap lying around the street which makes me thing how people don’t really care anymore. There’s another type even since my mother pointed out that parents of kids that were invited to one of my sister’s birthday parties didn’t call and say that their kid couldn’t attend. Now to my mother’s defense she wrote that she also wanted to know who weren’t showing up to make sure to have bought enough groceries for the party. Now some didn’t call and this again is because they don’t care really. This behavior is something that gets me quite mad at times but I know I can’t do anything about it but if any Danes read this please keep in mind that you should mind others and not only yourself.

The Western Otaku

I myself read manga and watch anime but by far do I recognize myself as an otaku since I only enjoy the entertainment value of anime and manga. But the otaku annoys me, not because they are otaku, but because they exaggerate the whole thing. Some examples would be;

  • Trying to speak Japanese without knowing anything about grammar or the like~desu.
  • Imitating an anime character to such a degree that it gets utterly annoying and if the character this person is imitating came to life he/she would die of shame.
  • Anything Japanese is cool and I mean ANYTHING! These people thinks anything Japanese is awesome and to their defense a lot of Japanese things are quite fascinating BUT! These people never really try to understand these things. They apparently don’t see the bad aspects of the culture since any culture has this.
  • Screaming fangirls… In Denmark the girl to boy ratio is quite astounding since it’s something like 2:1 and that means when going to a convention here means that you should invest in a couple of wads of cotton to shove in your ears since these girls scream every 1-2 seconds.

This is only a few but you get the idea. Not that the guys are particularly better but they are to some degree quieter. But their problem seems to be hygiene but not all of them.

Choosing Sides

Be it politics, religion, racism you name it there are always more than one side and this isn’t a problem unless all sides are blind as bats. The aforementioned subjects all have the common denominator of being hot topics in politics but not only those since economics is in there as well making it a nice mud throwing fight for the politicians. On the side of the voters most seem blind how the government is behaving and each pick one side and don’t see the problems in their own side since they are too busy digging up dirt and trash talking the opponent. Not that the political parties are any different since they do mostly the same. So what’s wrong then? Well everyone has lost sight of what the important thing is and that namely is politics and working together instead of against each other. To me it seems more like a kindergarten where it’s more important to find dirt on people and so on. What I am looking for is politics that isn’t based on how you make the opposing party look bad.

Conclusion

If you’re a Dane please shape up and take an interest in our society here since it’s the only one we have and therefore should cherish it. This isn’t a hard thing when you think about it since all you have to do is pick up your trash or any other leaving and throw it in the bin. In addition it would help for the municipality to put up more garbage bins around town.

Damn Homework!

I have a PowerPoint presentation due for tomorrow but as usual I don’t have very much to add to the PowerPoint. The theme is the same as my Japanese essay I wrote a couple of weeks ago but still the main points I can summarize in 4 slides… Well 3 really.

Anyhow I have been busy this weekend trying to structure my work schedule for the upcoming week and trying to come up with an idea for my BA project but for some reason I can’t come up with anything. My problem to my knowledge lies in that I have a problem grasping the essence of what this project is. The scale of which it is and what I have to do is a something I still have to unlock and acquire. This knowledge isn’t something that will present itself to me so I will have to go searching for it.  In my case I should easily get these things done and have time left to spare but since I am of a lazy nature and actually value doing nothing at times it gets tricky and therefore I can only really blame myself for my own tardiness in these matters. My earlier proclamation of quitting EVE Online might have been made a bit too quick so instead I decided to resign my position as Vice President of my Corporation in the game and go back to lying low while I work on my BA Project as well as other minor projects I have on my to do list. This upcoming week might be tough to get through but for once I have planned to try and work hard and get everything on my To-Do List done so I am back on track.

In other news

I plan to make a minor review of Fallout New Vegas when I get through it. Just that the game for now is quite overwhelming to me and therefore it will take some time. I am also planning on frapsing my Minecraft work as well but all these things are on hold until everything else I have planned is done. I also want to make a post on human nature as well as politics.
