mine are:

Learn more Assembly (already have some learned). By the way, the best Assembly book around is Assembly Language Primer by the Waite Group.

Also I want to learn OpenGL, so then I will know both DX and GL.

And I want to complete my RTS engine by the end of the year.

I want to get all A's in school again ....all year long. I would love to quit smoking but I don't think I can get the A's without about a pack a day.

Then quit smoking and get B's all along. B's won't kill you, smoking will. And it's not a nice way to die.

New Years resolutions:

Learn what mistakes I made last year, so I can avoid them in the future.

Start regular workout; Start doing sports.

Be in control.
For the last year, all bad things happening ( and there were some ) happened without me controlling it. There were not many things I actually ****ed up. But there were a ton of things that came down on me without me having any influence. So next year, I would like to influence things. If things go down the drain, it should be either my fault, or not. Not some god-sent disaster I can't do anything about. Good or bad, it should have been my decisions steering it that way. Looking back, it isn't really a new year resolution, because it's out of my command. But it's a wish for the next year :(

My new year resolution: I'm going to commit suicide some day in January or earlier, by either sending 50k volts through my body, or by hanging myself.

I did the biggest mistake in my life a few months ago; A few days after being at a party, this girl called me and asked me out, because we had a really nice time before! I said: "[stupid silence] it's probably not a good idea..." - and I said that only because I was scared. It was first a while after this conversation I realized that she had been scared too. She had the guts to ask me out, but I didn't even had the guts to honestly answer her.

Will NEVER EVER get over this completely for as long as I live (that won't be long).

Why don't you ask her out now. I would go for it, you have nothing to lose. Ask her if she wants to go out with you for New Year. And if she doesn't want to, there are other fish in the sea.

I hope you are joking about the 50K volts. I had once hang on 9k volts and I can tell you, I had a very serious headache. I was sick after that. My head hurt more then the next day after a bottle of wodka. And it isn’t the voltage that will kill you, it’s the ampère

about my new year resolution, I don't have any because I know I can't keep them

You know Series, maybe you should think about that picture you have for an avatar. There is sufficient power for someone to change in that.. Just a thought for you, since you already believe most of the principles of the Bible (all fall very short of perfection.. and the glory of God). Freedom and redemption are some of the most powerful concepts.

ouch...electricity...gonna be painful...not a nice way to go. Oh, and just remember, this time after posting you're going to kill yourself, please re-register using a DIFFERENT email address so we don't know who it is.

My new years resolution is to party more and program more...

Why don't you ask her out now

No way. And I can't afford it.

BTW: the girl is of course not the reason for why I will commit suicide. I just mentioned it anyway.


-KEN-

I'll probably lose my conscious directly. I'll be drunk, and I'll also inject some things in my blood first (like a lot of alcohol). And it doesn't matter if it will be painful, you're just weak. It's a good solution in the long run. And I'll also have a rope around my neck, so if I fall during this I'll hang myself. It can't go wrong! I'm a genius when it comes to suicide.

Not everything has to be expencive. ex: Ask her out with new year. around 23u45 take a walk outside, preferably a place where you can be alone with her and watch the fireworks.and maybe kiss her. no money spent. And if she likes you, she wont care about the money

And if there isn't any fireworks, spent the time talking the her and listening what she has to say.

I said no. It's too late.

I'm suicidial. I have around $450 to pay - to my ISP and to some other people. I have no friends left. I don't even have any nice clothes. I'm really shy now after being completely alone for so long. I'm not going to school, nor do I have a job. And I can't get contributions for being unemployed.

To be rude enough to ask out a person that I like in this condition, is the last thing in the world I would do.

And why do you think a swede like me would do any better in Mexico? :confused:

What are you talking about? I'll help myself. I'm doing the best of the situation.

Hmm...My New Year's Resolution is to learn OpenGL or DirectX, and also to at least START building a robot.

Think I'll succeed? (Don't answer this Series)

Series X4 1.0
12-27-2001, 12:33 PM
Almost anybody can build a robot. The question is how it will be.

What should it do?

What should it look like?

PC controlled?

Eyes?

Ears?

Genetically programmed (self learning)?

Do you know how to implement a neural net?

The physical system - pneumatic, oil, other?

How and where will you get the parts (personally I would steal things and look at the garbage dump)?

This is the first interesting idea you've ever had, I've been thinking about this too and even made some worthless things. But personally I don't think that a physical body is very interesing till you know how to make the "brain". So that's what I'm working on.

Oh, that's right...you're sweish...I thought you lived in texas for some reason :confused:

But think about it! Sun, warm weather, possibly meeting the mexican mami of your dreams? :)

My resolutions:

*Study more, drink less.

*Take over the World (and Microsoft).

There are a few more but I fear the post would be deleted for inappropriate content. :p

Drink less is a regular with me - often fail. There were a few from last year which I will try again, some failed because of my inactivity, some because of hers, but there were a number which were due to "enemy action" and I'm determined to rectify those at least.

Biggest is the same, I've got to get her healthy.

Not true, we need more than that. And even if you were correct we need other things in order to get love, like money for example.

Thanks DA.

"Can't buy me love"... just saying. If you need money for love, you are looking the wrong direction. Money is the one thing that doesn't help at all. Not more here than in any other part of life. Maybe even less.

Speaking of which... finding my true love has always been one of my resolutions. I thought I had last year, but well... another open point on the list.

>>>

<<<

I thought that once. I thought she was great, until she proved not to be so. Left the business, (pursuing women), for several years and decided I was better on my own. Was not looking, but she found me anyway. My "current" is everything I ever could have wished for, and now, 4 years later, and her being ill for the last two of them, I still think the same - I adore my wife.

There are some real cynics around, I consider myself to be amongst them, but with this girl, my doubts are truly under test!
