Yes, it's that time again. To update my Linux to the (almost) latest and greatest. The latest and greatest is KDE, but I only got KDE 4.0.4 with all the games, applications, word processors of opensuse 10.3 (that was KDE 3.5.7). It's fast, but the screens lag. I also put Gnome 2.24 on it. Well, got to go.

Oh yeah, game update

Soul Calibur IV for the PS3. It's a pretty good game and I like it. It's not smooth with the exception of the drive only being 2x speed. I have an option of putting it all on my HDD which I should. I made to end of arcade with 4 characters already, and I'm going to play story when I have time. I skipped the celebration, because it kicks me where it counts. I always feel I'm hanging like a thread over there. Last week I barely got my work in. I want to say shit that I can't say. My GPA last quarter was a approximently 94% (93.8%)

Game point average is 87% in Buisness and 100% in Windows Workstations.

In the name of advancing technology....

Recently, I have undergone re-compression of Band of Brothers with X264 rev 889 and rev 912 VFW. This is over 2 yrs after my last work with the same VFW program with War of the Worlds, SW Episode 2 and 3. I mean I did about 2/3 with rev 889 and 1/3 with 912. I wanted to say I can go through this dawnthing task, because normally it is not wise to leave all those fans on for 96+ hrs straight with my on-the-fly ripping and compression utility which I cracked and downloaded off the internet in 2003 actually. If it aint broke don't fix it. My previous Band of Brothers video was encoded in DivX 5.2.1 and Xvid 1.0.1 I believe. Note: Advanced Profile aspect of Xvid just came online in 1.0

I can show how wonderful it looks at 525 KBps @ 680x410 & 96 Kbps MP3. I think I'll won't encode another movie for a month, because I have no friends to share it with. Randy was sinister not visiting me since his wedding in April!

Oh yeah I plan to drop coin on Final Fantasy IV and XII on NDS. I love the reviews and because I already have Mass Effect on the PC, because the Xbox 360 version was no fun after all those Read Disc Errors exclusive to the game. Maybe that was Microsoft's intention? It's alright. Playing it on my Geforce GTX 280!

Stag Party and Drinking party




We did this once to try it out, listening to heavy metal (93X), and hitting all the bars in St. Croix County especially Hammond, and Roberts.

A few weeks later, I went on one on a stag party with some old friends and acquaintances who i barely see. I didn't get drunk, because I wanted my bed to sleep in. We went to a strip bar. It was Randy Peterson, Robert Haggerty, James Benedict (left to right) Rob Vanderhoff.
