    Talking C(xx), Brag and Flame a lot!

    It's about time we stop being so damn serious.
    It is your responsibility to humbly display how witty you are.

    You can C ( or Cxx ).
    You can Brag.
    And oh boy you can Flame a lot.

    I'm just kindof bored atm and have spent too many hours reading those damn RFC's cause if i can't Network in C, i will stop breathing.

    I brag for the following:
    -Computing number sequences without pen+paper or computer.
    -Sleeping less than 3 hours on average every day of a week.
    -Consuming large quantities of alcohol, and still being coherent.
    -Being seriously insane.
    -Still being able to be sensitive and at times charming.

    Things i hate involving computers:
    -Anything written that spans OVER 80 columns.
    -Overuse of whitespace in documents, except when it is for the whitespace language.
    -Pointer devices and Strange Keyboard Layouts.
    -Writing formatted text using Micro$oft W0RD.
    -Email spamming.

    Things i hate involving people:
    -Them asking stupid questions.
    -Telling me how smart i am.
    -Accepting the fact that they *HAVE* to do things they are told.
    -Talking like they *ARE*.
    -Abusing animals.

    So go ahead and spit it out all here, you 'll feel better...
    Code:
    ...
        goto johny_walker_red_label;
    johny_walker_blue_label: exit(-149$);
    johny_walker_red_label : exit( -22$);
    A typical example of ...cheap programming practices.

    -Being seriously insane.

    that's the alcohol.

    -Still being able to be sensitive and at times charming.

    that's the alcohol too.

    -Telling me how smart i am.

    again, the alcohol.

    -Talking like they *ARE*.

    what does that even mean?

    I brag for the following:
    - Being smarter than xuftugulus

    Things I hate involving computers:

    Things I dislike involving computers:
    - The post above (since it spans over 80 columns)
    - The idea that it's useful to point out "the whitespace language" as a mention-worthy exception
    - Strange keyboard layouts (such as qwerty)
    - People who use dollar $ign$, put fullstops on list items, and capitalize Some Particular Phrases.

    Things I hate involving people:

    Things I dislike involving people:

    Things I find strange about people:
    - The sense of self-importance that some of them have
    There are 10 types of people in this world, those who cringed when reading the beginning of this sentence and those who salivated to how superior they are for understanding something as simple as binary.

    Jeez, did i write all these? I had no idea i must have been out of my mind,
    i am seriously schizophrenic or had some seizure or something or too many
    logical operators in my head or completely barfed by compiler warnings or
    a ping of 65507 bytes or paranoid delusions or just simple curiosity or simply
    ... the alcohol.
    Code:
    ...
        goto johny_walker_red_label;
    johny_walker_blue_label: exit(-149$);
    johny_walker_red_label : exit( -22$);

    Clearly that was a lie.

    Things I hate about computers and their brood:

    - Big delete keys;
    - The CRLF, LF, LFCR stupidity;
    - Cute, beautiful, and jaw-dropping GUIs;
    - Perl derivate regex not being enforced at gun point;
    - Laptops that aren't black;
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    My short list of minor annoyances:

    • Small backspace keys on keyboards
    • Conversely, oversized enter keys
    • All the little clicks and bells that Windows uses when the cursor does something
    • How that very same noise pollution has permeated RPGs
    • I can't play the original Megarace anymore, because Windows is too new
    • Wireless mice and wireless keyboards being insecure and in the way, respectively
    • Making this list

    Not megarace, but despite having lost interest for games there are few DOS jewels I still play when I feel like going to the attic.

    You first want this: DOSBox. Go through the documentation and such, but its pretty easy to use.

    You then want this: MegaRace fan site.

    That should set you up.

    Here's the DOS games I still play every now and then (no particular order):

    - Fantasy General
    - Dune
    - Master of Orion
    - One Must Fall
    - Raptor
    - Vikings
    - Master of Magic
    - Commander Keen series
    - Alone in The Dark
    - Glaxian (because it really brings back memories)

    That alone should tell you to stop poisoning your own body with the crap we call "alcohol" which really should be named "poison."

    - Internett
    - Code that is not backed up
    - Ex girlfriend
    - guitar
