edit Welcome!

Hello, Thatdamnedfollowspot, and welcome to Uncyclopedia! I hope you like the place and decide to stay. If not, the door's right over there and there is a window over here if you don't fancy walking down the stairs. Anyway, here are a few good links for people like you:

Chief welcomes you, but only because he needs someone to love

Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~) or use the "sign" button (Button sig) above the edit box.

At Uncyclopedia, writing articles is not a requirement, but most people enjoy writing something while they are here. If you are critical and think the world would be infinitely better if everyone listened to you, then you should become a teacher, but check out Pee Review while they make sure you aren't a sex offender.

If you need help, ask at the Dump, or ask an administrator on their talk page. You can also look into the Uncyclopedian Adopt-a-Noob program.


OK, I know you may have seen this message on lots of other people's pages, but I still had to come to your page to leave it here. If you have absolutely any questions, no matter how trivial, feel free to ask me here.

Here are a couple of important things that you should bear in mind as a brand new user, especially if you can't be bothered reading the beginner's guide.

  • Read HTBFANJS I guarantee it will be a huge help to you and will stop your early efforts being deleted on sight.
  • If you want to create an article, then simply follow this link: User:Thatdamnedfollowspot/My sandbox (obviously you can change the "My sandbox" part to say anything you like). Please don't create articles on this page as this is where other users can contact you.
  • Always remember rule 2 and be constructive and civil at all times. It works (mostly) and it won't get you banned.
  • Have fun, that is after all why we are all here.

Again, welcome!  ChiefjusticeGameCube 18:18, July 27, 2010 (UTC)

edit Hi there

I couldn't help but notice that you are doing good things which is superb. Continue to do them and there may well be a big juicy bone in it for you. Also, if you are a sockpuppet I will jump off a bridge so please be a real person. Keep up the good work! --ChiefjusticeGameCube 22:51, July 28, 2010 (UTC)

Rest assured that I am indeed real, good sir. Thatdamnedfollowspot 22:54, July 28, 2010 (UTC)
What a relief. I don't suppose you can see an easy way to get down from here from where you are standing? --ChiefjusticeGameCube 22:56, July 28, 2010 (UTC)
How did you get up there in the first place? I could always try to find a ladder, but that would involve work for me, and I haven't fed the cat yet, and there are a lot of bills that need to be paid... Thatdamnedfollowspot 22:59, July 28, 2010 (UTC)
I can't really recall how I got up here, I think it was some kind of slingshot experiment. Not to worry it isn't so far down...


AAAAAAAAAAAAARGH!!!


splat
I'm OK, the ground broke my fall... --ChiefjusticeGameCube 23:05, July 28, 2010 (UTC)
Did you die? I heard that fall, and it would look really bad if I indirectly killed an admin on my second day here. Thatdamnedfollowspot 23:11, July 28, 2010 (UTC)

edit Your Review

Now, I'm not angry at all, or even annoyed - but a review isn't just a few sentences that sum up a person's thoughts on the article. Actually, I'm kind of relieved it got out of the queue at last. However, next time you do a review try and make it in-depth. You've got the beginnings of a good reviewer but first read the guidelines before submitting another review, and make it longer. I hope I don't sound like I'm scolding you, because I'm not, just giving you some tips. --Some Idiot Image002 04:59, July 29, 2010 (UTC)

You don't sound like you're scolding at all- thanks for the tips! I probably should have looked around at other reviews before doing one of my own haha. But thank you for the information, I appreciate it. Thatdamnedfollowspot Wait, what were we talking about again? 05:26, July 29, 2010 (UTC)
I made the same mistake a long time ago. A pee review involves sitting down with a strong cup of coffee and a plate of biscuits/cookies to help feed the brain cells. Unless you go for the stronger stuff. I admit, I haven't done one since but it is a very useful service other users really appreciate and can lead to lots of shiny gift tokens on your user page. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 00:27, August 7, 2010 (UTC)
I've never thought of the coffee and cookies approach...Cookies in the British sense. The big ones. - [00:32 7 August 2010] TheYetTalk
I do love me a strong cup of coffee. And I'll keep wandering around Pee Review before I do another one. Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot

edit Hi

I thought I'd be friendly. Hi. I'm Yettie. Nice to meet you. - [22:12 6 August 2010] TheYetTalk

Hi, Yettie. How're you? Thatdamnedfollowspot Riot here. 23:29, August 6, 2010 (UTC)
Good thanks. You? Wondering if I can help at all? Create a sig perhaps? I don't know. You just seem like a talented new user and I wanted to make sure you had a chance to meet someone as awesome as my dear self. Seriously though, anything you want. From tea to illegal inside knowledge on bets, I'm happy to assist. I do, however a secret, evil agenda which I cannot currently reveal. - [23:31 6 August 2010] TheYetTalk
I'm doing pretty good, thanks. And it's great that you've brought up signatures- I'm trying to work one out right now, actually. You can find it here. What I want done with it is to have the date in a M.D.YYYY format, and possibly have the picture that you see on my userpage act as a link to said userpage. Thanks in advance for any assistance you can give. Thatdamnedfollowspot Riot here. 23:42, August 6, 2010 (UTC)
Would you do me the honour of signing your shiny new sig, here? - [00:38 7 August 2010] TheYetTalk
I'd be happy to! Unfortunately, I'm still having some issues with the time, so I'll just go back to using the four tildes until I fix it. Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 00:41, August 7, 2010 (UTC)
Take my advice on the sig page, trust me that's the best way to make it work. First make a template somewhere like here for the formatting of the time and just put {{{1}}} where the time will go and then include the code that I showed you on the sig talk page. But obviously replacing my time template for yours and my sig template for yours. And changing the various different time templates you're substing in so that the time is in a format you like. It's the best way, trust me. :) - [00:50 7 August 2010] TheYetTalk

edit I suggest you click here for my four steps to sig heaven, you seem to still be having trouble?

That is all. :) - [01:43 7 August 2010] TheYetTalk

I don't understand what you're doing with your sig, which is now leaking smallness all over the place...I suggest, that it's best to just follow my suggestions in the above link. - [02:01 7 August 2010] TheYetTalk
I fixed it. It was missing a </font> at the end.--HM (T) 02:04, August 7, 2010 (UTC)
I think that I made it work. Maybe. Thanks for fixing that, HELPME. Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 02:37 Saturday, August 7, 2010

edit ...I totally forgot what I came here to say.

...crap. ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20100912 - 20:17 (UTC)

That's fine, because I totally forgot what I was going to write in response. Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 20:19 Sunday, September 12, 2010
Perfect.
But I do recall saying sometime in the past that I'd have to come over here and give you a hug, so...
Hug
Lyrithya has deemed you worthy of a hug for some reason. Thus, you may now consider yourself hugged.

At this point, you may also want to consider checking your pockets so as to ascertain that everything is still there.


Damn, that template sucks. Anyhoo... What did I come here for, though? ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20100912 - 20:21 (UTC)

Thank you for the hug! I appreciate it, and your template's not bad at all. It's practical. And perhaps you came here to give me that hug? Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 02:34 Monday, September 13, 2010
Not this time, no. On the other hand, I think I came here sometime before to give you a hug and forgot then, so I guess it works out? Or something. Well, thanks for being nice, at any rate. Now whatever was that? Arg, this is going to bug me... ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20100913 - 04:07 (UTC)
I'm a naturally nice person. At least, I try to be. But on a different note, Peregrine seemed quite cross at our little conversation. Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 20:04 Monday, September 13, 2010
How can you try to naturally be something? Or... was that a joke? Crap, that was a joke, wasn't it? Why do I even come here, all these people who use humour... bloody mind-boggling.
Eh, the poor thing. I honestly don't blame him. Probably had the new messages thing plastered across his whatnot, and it kept winding up just us yakking... ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20100914 - 04:27 (UTC)
I actually wasn't trying to be funny. And I have no idea why I came here- it was just a spur of the moment "Hey, I've got a funny twist on how meteorologists predict weather. Since IPs don't get taken seriously, I'll create an Uncyc account and make that article!" My exact thought process. And now look where we are. I don't find most of what's on here funny- my sense of humor is odd. I don't find most of my works funny either (which makes it more difficult to write), yet people seem to think I have a sense of humor or something.
And he'll get over it. Hopefully. Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 01:50 Wednesday, September 15, 2010
Oh. Well, okay then. That's an... odd reason. Far as I can tell, even administrators aren't always taken seriously... they just have bansticks. The rest of us, though, really aren't. I sometimes wonder if I even have a sense of humour - I do and say things all the time people think are funny, yet have no idea why, and other stuff people insist is funny I can only partly understand why after a careful analysis of the matter. Yet other stuff that isn funny at all will make me burst out laughing for some reason, you know? Eh, at least you have enough to be helpful on reviews. I usually just make stuff up for those and hope nobody notices/I stumble upon something useful. By the by, Chief had the audacity to nominate me for reviewer of the month; I don't suppose you could come by and vote against me? Or for someone else? You can nominate them first if you have to. (Sorry for whoring, but... come on. *shifty eyes*)
Eh, you do have a sense of humour. It may be dead and buried under a tree somewhere, but I'm sure you have one. It would go with your strange taste in couchery.
Even if he doesn't, what's the worst that could happen? Still, it'd probably be more healthsome for him if he did, anyhow. Harbouring grudges and whatnot seems to be bad for the immune system. Or something. ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20100915 - 13:47 (UTC)
I'm still not exactly sure why reviews are very important- are they sort of like voting (apparently voting's very important too)? I thought that I'd do Pee Week for two reasons, one being that I need to get better at reviewing and two because my work load for the year wasn't that heavy last week or the week before, so I thought it'd be the same this week. I was wrong- now would be the time that everything starts up and I'm busy as hell. But that's a different story.
I recently found the grave for my sense of humor. After digging around, I found an empty coffin, with only a clown nose inside. So apparently, the physical representation of my sense of humor is a clown nose or something.
Never, never, never say "what's the worst that could happen." It might end in the end of the world as we know it. And I've heard the same thing about immune systems and grudges. Or, at least, I think I have. Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 04:07 Thursday, September 16, 2010
Reviews help make things better when done right... at least, that's my impression. Or if the article proves good enough, they can serve as permission to stove stuff up vfh one's self. You know?
Yeah, lovely week this is being. Most coursework I've ever had, too, which is saying something. Utterly ridiculous. Only I'm not doing it right now because I'm being fed up with it. *shifty eyes* Funny how it works out for the week, though...
A... clown nose? Perhaps humour is one of those things that decomposes quickly and the nose was simply the only thing left. Maybe... maybe you were a clown! Literally! *flails* Urg, but why do you think I say that that but to tempt it to show? Curiosity killed the cat for more reasons than one, you know. ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20100917 - 16:40 (UTC)
Is someone talking behind my back? Or is it you guys just trying to annoying me again, in a hope that i might just be looking over TDFS's usertalk? And if you're being serious, I'm holding no grudges.--Some_idiot.png (CUN) 22:07, September 17, 2010 (UTC)
But of course! And I suppose that's a good thing, but seriously, we just love you. You know it, too, or you wouldn't be stalking the lovely ol' spot, now would you? Kinda like how I've been stalking you, eh? ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20100918 - 16:38 (UTC)
I wouldn't say that I have beenstalking this page, really.--Some_idiot.png (CUN) 22:11, September 19, 2010 (UTC)
Squatting, then? ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20100919 - 22:32 (UTC)
It's alright if you stalk my talk page, Peregrine, I usually camp out on it for days on end. Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 01:03 Monday, September 20, 2010
I know what you mean about coursework. I just finished procrastinating on an AP History outline, and I really should be procrastinating on my physics homework, but it can wait. And by procrastinating, I mean not procrastinating.
I think I have a review to do that I booked two days ago... Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 01:03 Monday, September 20, 2010
I'm currently procrastinating on three things at once. Strangely they're all things I at least sort of understand, at least... how hard could astronomy or algorithms be, eh? They're just... maths. Applied to odd little far-off things. Or not so far off things... this is using algorithms... So... many... *pokes it*
Wheee.
You may want to look into that, if you haven't already... o_O ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20100920 - 02:54 (UTC)
I've (unfortunately?) yet to get my hands on algorithms. I think. I may have used a few here and there, but not to my knowledge. Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 03:03 Monday, September 20, 2010
Of course you've used algorithms! Everyone uses algorithms! End-user complicated computer stuff like, say, security and encryption and whatnot, or just processes that you follow to certain ends, it's ALGORITHMS! IT'S ALL ALGORITHMS! *flails* ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20100920 - 03:09 (UTC)
Algorithms? In my everyday society? Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 03:14 Monday, September 20, 2010
I bet you even use an algorithm to put on your socks... something like pick up sock, put on foot. Pick up other sock, put on other foot. That, m'dear, is an algorithm.
Really. o___O ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20100920 - 03:32 (UTC)
Well I'll be. Never thought about it that way. So I guess you could say that our brains are capable of running a seemingly infinite series of algorithms? Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 03:35 Monday, September 20, 2010
That's what brains are, really. Computers. They use algorithms to survive; ant follows trail, lays trail, hunter stalks prey, catches prey... hells, the entire thing is nothing more than an implementation of a variety of genetic algorithms, some of which work better in different situations and thus persist... and change... *brain falls out* ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20100920 - 03:40 (UTC)
I've heard that we use less than 10% of our brains or something along those lines. If so, then what if we were using our brains to complete capacity? Would it involve in us as humans destroying ourselves? I'd probably remember what I had to do for my physics homework though. Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 03:58 Monday, September 20, 2010
Eh, use less than 10% for what, anyhow? General functions are pretty important, too. And anyhow, consider a computer processor - use it to full capacity non-stop and it'll burn out really quickly, so perhaps the not using it all is a good thing. Can actually survive past 30 able to remember where the car keys might be, at least.
You could also just look it up, no? ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20100920 - 04:07 (UTC)
Define "non-stop," though? Would there ever really be a time where the human brain is allowed to rest almost completely (save for the essentials- heart beating, breathing, etc.)? I honestly don't know what I'm talking about, so I'm just using big words to make it sound like I'm smart.
And I did look it up, and surprise- there it was! But since it's 12:15 AM and I would need to do around 20 problems, I don't really think I'll do it. Just hope the teacher doesn't try and collect it tomorrow. Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 04:16 Monday, September 20, 2010

Well, partial-power indefinitely is a lot easier to maintain, is all. Runs less hot, wears on the bits less, you know. Overflows the caches less. I don't either; I'm just talking about everything in terms of computers so it looks like I might.

Hmm, lucky you, being able to use that as an excuse... I still need to do... eh, pretty much everything. And I know the teachers will be collecting. They always do. Shame, really. So why am I not bloody working on it?! ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20100920 - 04:46 (UTC)

That's a good question- why aren't you working on your coursework? Personally, I'd rather spend my time on Uncyc, but that's just me.
Oh, by the way, are we allowed to change votes for VFH? Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 21:35 Monday, September 20, 2010
I have an aversion to doing productive stuff, I think. Even stuff on uncyclopedia that qualifies as productive I try to avoid... and I like doing stuff here, too. o_O
I should certainly hope so. Just strike the old one out, fix the numbers, add a comment why (with proper formatting) if you feel like... I mean, you can everywhere else I know of, so why would vfh be any different? ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20100920 - 22:52 (UTC)
Also, I'm sorry I tried to whore to you before. I promise not to do that again. Unless I forget. On that note, I didn't already say this and forget about it, did I? ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20100920 - 22:56 (UTC)
I'm the same way. I'd much rather laze around and do nothing than something productive. I keep telling myself to do certain things, but by the time I get around to doing those things, it's too late to do everything I wanted to. I've just been too busy with school and procrastination and whatnot to do anything with Uncyc unfortunately.
As far as I can remember, I don't think that you already apologised for whoring yourself out- and don't worry about it! At least you're not like some people who go around whoring and parading their articles around. I don't do that- do I? Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 00:57 Wednesday, September 22, 2010
Whee... fun life. Bleah. And now I cannot even expand a stub about plastic... I've turned worthless.
I dunno... are you? What have you even written? I don't even know... ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20100922 - 02:14 (UTC)
My works are on my userpage, towards the bottom does anyone actually read what's on my userpage? And you're not worthless, just in a period of writer's block? I was in writer's block for about three weeks, and then popped out that VFH nominated article which I don't find too funny, but eh, if you guys like it... Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 02:18 Wednesday, September 22, 2010
Oh... right. I remember that. Of course I remember that. I also remember you put your awards at the bottom when I was adding something just now... *shifty eyes* And no, of course not. Why would they? Writer's block, or lack of time, or... panic... panic... panic... PANIC! Eh, it's okay. Better than the article I wrote that got on VFH, anyway... mine was just a ranter. Yours at least has a proper subject and some... what's that stuff called? Oh, right. Content. ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20100922 - 02:32 (UTC)
I finished editing my userpage about five minutes ago, was there an edit conflict? Also, I see what you did there. And what kind of article has content nowadays? Certainly no the ones I've seen. Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 02:35 Wednesday, September 22, 2010
No, I did that afterwards. Exactly. I think I may be trying to find out how many people I have to nominate to get banned before someone tells me to knock it off... would if anyone cared. Some kinds do. Some... sort of. All relative, eh? ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20100922 - 03:26 (UTC)
So you're trying to figure out how many people you nominate for banning befoer, I suppose, you get banned yourself? Isn't there a word for that or something? Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 03:29 Wednesday, September 22, 2010
I dunno, is there? ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20100922 - 03:31 (UTC)
I want to say that it's irony, but I'm not sure. Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 03:39 Wednesday, September 22, 2010
How would you tell, though? And if it was ironic, would it not be more ironic that I'm doing that after nominating myself? Or would that make it less ironic?
Also, this conversation is getting really lengthy. Wow. ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20100922 - 03:48 (UTC)
I'm not quite sure how to tell. And it would add to the supposed irony of the situation or something.
Yeah it is :P I forget how it all started anyway... Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 04:00 Wednesday, September 22, 2010
Magic, perhaps. Add or detract? What qualifies as negative and positive irony, anyhow? You know, I actually had a writing class once go into the different kinds of irony there are and how they are effective and how they are used... apparently there are three. I have no idea what they are, of course, because I was playing videogames on my laptop at the time, but, er, that's not the point. Not sure I had a point, though.
Same here... rather odd, eh? ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20100922 - 13:56 (UTC)
So irony and magnets are both manifestations of magic? I've had classes where we delved into the meaning of irony, but I never completely got it. Just like Q.E.D. That confuses me too.
I think it was all because of that couch. I could be wrong though. Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 16:33 Wednesday, September 22, 2010
Wait, magnets? Compared to some forces, that's actually... wait, that's a link? Someone finally... oh, wait. Dammit, wrong wiki. I really need to stop jumping between them. Too confusing, especially after that falcon and that gomphog went and joined, too. Too bloody confusing. You're not going to join ?pedia too, are you?
Not that that would be bad, but my brain already hurts. o_O And now I forgot what I was saying again.
Anyway, I dunno... didn't that couch stuff start afterwards? ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20100922 - 17:46 (UTC)
It was a reference to that "fucking magnets, how do they work?" meme. What are you saying about a link? And if you're talking about Illogicpedia or whatever it's called, I don't think so. It's too confusing and random for my taste.
And I'm not sure whether it did or not. Now I'm even more confused! Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 17:53 Wednesday, September 22, 2010
Oh, memes... I know nothing of memes. And the thing with magnets, I do know how they work, so that'd mess that one right up. I mean, really... basic elementary physics.
Aye, illogicopedia... the place is rather lacking of articles on some basic subjects. I mean, nothing on black holes, but there is a nice long thing about how 'I'll slap you in the face with a fish!'... so I see what you might mean about confusing. It is rather weird.
You know, one of us could check. I don't expect it'll happen, but it could... ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20100922 - 18:01 (UTC)
One of us could check, but I don't feel like it, and I don't think you do either. And I haven't been able to make sense of Illogicopedia, but I suppose that's the point? What's all this nonsense about slapping people with fish? Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 19:02 Wednesday, September 22, 2010
Indeed... and at any rate, what's to make sense of? I have yet to make sense of this place, meself... have you? I mean, so much oddness...
The fish, oh, that's simple enough. *slaps ye with a fish* See? Simple. It's a good way to show how much better than fish we are, too. ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20100922 - 19:40 (UTC)
I have a vague understanding of the basic foundations of the principle underlying reasons for Uncyclopedia. In other words, not at all. And I am a firm believer that most random humor (meaning if an article is about couches and it suddenly begins talking about flying school buses) is shit and unnecessary here.
But what if I took your fish and then put it into a fryer? Wouldn't that show how much better than fish we are, as well as being delicious? Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 19:52 Wednesday, September 22, 2010
Well, you're right. Most purely random humour is rather irredeemable. But I think the point lies more with what takes one by surprise. Not the things that go loppily from noun to noun, but the things that involve some sort of almost sensible non-sequitor, or some colossal irony, or the sort of absudism that may or may not be funny, but at very least makes one think. The lovely are the ones that are quietly nuts, I've found, not those with screaming and depravity but the ones with simple manic joy, straight-jacketed in the corner and humming merrily as the butterflies flutter by. As someone said at some point, it is an endeavour in surrealism. The things that I think succeed are the ones that truly are that. Things that are, shall we say, close to home.
I'll admit, that's not the direction the people usually go, but when they do, it is rather glorious. Like walking through a garden of little dreams.
Anyways, if you do that, we could have a nice meal, methinks, yes. That's the funny thing; it's all in choices. That could well be the quietly mad to the slapping depravity. I'd go for them both because I just plain like madness, at least when there is some reason to it, but who knows... ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20100923 - 00:02 (UTC)
M'yes, quite. I agree with your viewpoint on that- the comedy makes one laugh, cry, and think at the same. But you are, unfortunately, right. There is a lot of shit on Uncyc, and even with our incinerators, I don't believe that we'll be able to eradicate all of the poorly done articles that cannot be saved. There may be a day, however, when Wikia pulls its head out of its ass and actually does something productive with the site in that regard, but I doubt that day will come soon. That is what you were getting at, right?
Choices choices, decisions decisions. Whether to have the fried fish or not. Whether to continue with this damned assignment or not. Whether to stop procrastinating or not this seems to be a central theme of the conversation... Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 04:00 Thursday, September 23, 2010
No, no, no... I don't even mean that it necessarily need be comedy. I was actually referring to Illogicopedia with the end of that, though it would indeed apply to either - quite a bit of crap on both, unfortunately. And what does Wikia have to do with anything? They just bought up the domain name and host the blimey thing. That's one nice thing about Illogicopedia; it ain't owned by a commercial entity.
What I mean is the gems. They're not what people might expect, not on either, really. And they need not be funny at all. Sometimes it's better when people don't even try, for they just come out nicer and stuff and other stuff, and damn it all, I'm so tired.
...aw, crap. I knew I was supposed to be doing something... coursework! I wonder if I could just get away with saying my moose ate my homework? That's what I was doing, see. I... bloody hell. Evidently. I might even go so far as to gander it's being a central part of our lives of late. ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20100923 - 05:08 (UTC)
Since our site is owned by Wikia...um... I forget where I was going with that. And now I forget what I was talking about. Yes, well...
Why do I save my work until 10 PM to do? I honestly didn't mean to stay after school till 5 PM, and I honestly didn't mean to fall asleep till 7 PM! I'd love to say that moose ate my homework, but I doubt my teachers would buy that. I'd love to have a day where I don't go to bed before 1 AM as well. Yes, I'd say that as well. Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 01:59 Friday, September 24, 2010

edit Salsa (music) – ready for primetime?

Hey Sven! I've spruced up the article with more material and a closing paragraph. Let me know if you think it's a good candidate for VFH. —Tonillero (hecklestalk) 20:29, September 20, 2010 (UTC)

I think it's a horrible candidate for VFH and you should be ashamed of yourself. Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 21:34 Monday, September 20, 2010

Thanks for helping out! --ChiefjusticeGameCube 22:39, September 20, 2010 (UTC)

edit Screw it, new section. This is getting ridiculous.

And my screen is way too narrow on this machine to handle that properly.

Eh, don't expect much from wikia. Apparently they're doing good if they manage refrain for several months at a time from screwing the place over, as I understand it.

Why do I save mine until 10:00 to do, either? I honestly didn't mean to have my moose eat my homework or get sidetracked by a large, shiny scanner or try to get three computers to work at once, fail utterly, try something else, fail utterly again, and then just quadruple-boot the laptop and then play guild wars and get all depressed and start ranting about my madness. I also didn't mean to drink a litre of mountain dew in one go and then spend the next half hour trying to catch a squirrel cornered in a small beech tree. I certainly did not intend to get sidetracked by wikipedia and revert some vandals before deciding to write some articles about ferns, but then get sidetracked by the extreme urge to cook some noodles... urg.

Unfortunately, my teachers wouldn't buy the moose thing, either. Now if my house burned down, that they said they'd accept... but that wouldn't kill my computer anyway, at least not if it didn't kill me, since I am kind of glued to the thing. It'd come out too. Easy enough to carry.

I'd love that too, being on top of things. I'd also adore a day doing coursework when I actually understand it, let alone get it done... ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20100924 - 02:37 (UTC)

I'm not quite sure why Uncyclopedia isn't it's own domain. I know it used to be, but isn't anymore for some reason (money, right?). Also, that last section was getting out of hand haha.
I honestly didn't plan for my phone to fail and need to be reset, honest! It just sort of happened! And I need music to live- I'm not some monkey! Honest. Neither did I intend to be sidetracked by a silly petition about getting study halls back and whatnot. These things just happen.
My teachers won't accept any excuses short of my having the bubonic plague and almost dying.
I've got some research paper (well, it's more like research "notes") that's due tomorrow that was assigned Monday. Ugh, this is truly annoying. Oh well. Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 04:01 Friday, September 24, 2010
There was this long and complicated bout of complaining and stuff. Basically, The guy holding the name and stuff sold it to wikia and now they're hosting the thing and using it as a traffic-count boost. Or something. I'd suggest looking it up somewhere or how if you want a proper history.
Oh dear. Well, I didn't plan on getting sidetracked by irc for the past two hours, either. I also didn't plan on booting windows and not being able to play my music because the complex linking system I use only works with native support for the filesystem type, and thus not even having my usual anchor... it just... happened.
I have this maths assignment that I need to do and more importantly understand for... well, today, really. It... arg. I need to do this. >.< Bloody irritating. ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20100924 - 04:36 (UTC)
I'm intrigued now as to what happened. Perhaps I can find some bellyaching in the forums?
I've never been in/used IRC. Isn't it like a messaging client or something? Also, i've seen the directions on the chatroom page and it looks confusing. Damned technology. Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 21:52 Friday, September 24, 2010
I found much of it linked to from more current forums... and a google search for uncyclopedia domain name or something found a whole pile. Whatever it was, you'll find it if you look, I imagine.
It's a chatroom protocol or some such. I dunno. You can use browser-based clients, which I found easiest... well, I use Opera, so it was built in. But just download something and figure it out as you go, eh? Easy. (It'd have to be; I pulled it off when I quit using the in-browser one, didn't I?) ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20100925 - 00:46 (UTC)
I'll have to check it out. As for the IRC thing, I use Google Chrome, and I'm using my desktop, so I don't have as many extensions and whatnot for Chrome on my desktop as I do on my laptop.
Ugh, and I just found out that I have a 67% in my math class. Not cool. Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 02:45 Saturday, September 25, 2010
Wheee... oh, if you're using windows, I've no idea. How do you barbarians even install stuff on an operating system like that? I hear you have to manually acquire each thing individually?
67%? I wish I had 67%... I have closer to 30%. Granted, I have no idea how much that'll change after the midterm or what it actually is considering the curve... ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20100925 - 03:15 (UTC)
You don't. If you do, Bill Gates and a few friends of his will show up at your house and "accidentally" knock some things off the mantelpiece because, you know, he's "clumsy". And then says that "accidents can happen. We wouldn't want anything to happen to that beautiful machine over there now, would we?" And then he leaves. It was embarrassing when he showed up one morning- the neighbors thought I was going to be arrested or something.
That sucks. A lot. Where I go to school, it's physically impossible to get under a 50%. If you get anything lower than a 50% on a grade, it's automatically bumped up. Probably the No Child Left Behind thing and whatnot. Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 03:44 Saturday, September 25, 2010
How odd. Sounds like quite the bother.
On the other hand, I could use a windows machine just for... posterity. Would you happen to know from whence I might be able to procure a legitimate windows 7 Enterprise license? For free?
That's... a little disturbing. Apparently, my school has a practice of hiring teachers so bad that students sometimes wind up having to go to the dean just to get them to let them take the exams... like this one that avoided a student's every attempt to contact him so as to schedule a time... and this other one that scheduled the midterms for the middle of another class's lecture, a class that half the original class just happened to be in... ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20100925 - 04:30 (UTC)
That depends, do you want to acquire it legally?
That's a bit concerning. What happens if you can't take the exam- you fail? Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 04:51 Saturday, September 25, 2010
Er... does kidnapping and/or blackmail count? I'm fine with that.
You get the dean to overrule the teacher, of course. And possibly fire them.
In other news, I'd forgotten how utterly fun internet trolls can be. Place like uncyclopedia, messing with them is a terrible idea, but somewhere like guild wars, I can just keep taunting them as long as I feel like, with no damage at all. It's great! And when I'm done, just put them on ignore or leave... ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20100925 - 05:13 (UTC)
Well, not necessarily kidnapping or blackmail, but pirating and whatnot. Or something. Not that I would know anything about that...
Trolls trolling trolls then? Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 05:34 Saturday, September 25, 2010
Well, for an operating system that requires reinstalling every three months, piracy would be annoying. And let's face it, windows isn't worth that annoyance.
Or something. ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20100925 - 05:47 (UTC)
Windows isn't worth it even if you bought a PC with it installed already. I'm still running XP, and I'm too poor to afford a newer system. Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 15:14 Saturday, September 25, 2010
Eh, usually the windows that come on things are more worth it after being removed and replaced, even if it's just with the same version. Folks like to put so much useless crap on computers these days... why, best running one I have is a ubuntu-server. I just installed the desktop stuff I wanted manually. (and oddly, the server came with more useful stuff that I use, anyway, than the desktop versions... bloody folks don't seem to think us regular users want a ssh server... or three multipurpose C compilers... or mysql servers... or web server software... or... okay, maybe I'm a little weird.)
And really, XP isn't really any worse than 7, at least performance-wise. Visuals are a little lacking, I'll grant. Then again, the 7 interface is like a more stable but horribly psychotic version of KDE... yick. (I got free Windowses from my college before I dropped out. But they didn't have 7 enterprise, only Vista enterprise, so I'm kind of annoyed at them. I refuse to use anything short of enterprise.) ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20100925 - 17:01 (UTC)
So what would be the best performance-wise?
You can have whatever visuals you want, you just need to have patience and the ability to change things in the C:\ folder without compromising the entire system. And I've yet to see KDE- I've only heard of it.
How did you manage free versions of Vista Enterprise? Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 03:10 Sunday, September 26, 2010
Best of what, for what?
Well, sure, but I'm lazy. It should at least come with proper pointers. I was very upset when I found all of XPs pointers suck. And it was my college - free software for engineering students... probably an attempt to get the techies hooked on it, or something.
Oh, I was mentioning IRC... there really are some colossal arses on there. Stupid ones, at that. I could go into lengths about their stupidity, but I can't be bothered. Perhaps you really should check it out, though; you might be able to marvel at their stupidity as well. ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20100926 - 06:20 (UTC)
I mean the best OS for perfomance on a computer or something.
I've been meaning to perfect my GUI, but I've been too lazy and frankly can't be arsed to do it- especially with the state that my computer is in right now. 4 kB free on a 27.9 GB HDD is very bad, I'll need to fix that tomorrow.
Oh goody, there's nothing I love more than stupid people. Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 15:46 Sunday, September 26, 2010
Oh, then you want something like FreeBSD... good luck getting it to work, though. I can't even get Gentoo to work, and that's much simpler. But if you can get it to work, you can have a ten-year-old machine running like it was a new one... well, a cheap new one. Running vista. With active anti-spyware. But still. *shifty eyes*
Well, linux tends to be a lot smaller, hard drive wise... my laptop has three ubuntus installed on it (don't ask unless you really want to know), and together they take up 9GB, so far. Windows, on the other hand, is taking up 22GB... and that's just one windows. With basic programs. And Maya. And most of the windows KDE programs. But two of the ubuntus have blender (similar to maya, but free), and one of them has almost all of the KDE linux desktop environment... you might want to look into it. Ubuntu actually tends to work for clueless people, unlike FreeBSD, but it's pretty good in of itself, anyhow. (and it comes with nice options of guis for the lazy. *shifty eyes*)
Ooo, does that mean you love me, too? I'm a moron, myself! ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20100926 - 20:41 (UTC)
Perhaps I'll just stick with screwing with the Windows themes or something. FreeBSD seems like FreeBSoD at first glance, and I'm too lazy to boot (unintentional computer pun?). As for Windows taking up 22 GB, what makes it so large, the OS itself or something else?
And you know I love you. But why did you let Dex rape you and then write an article for the Times on it?!? Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 22:56 Monday, September 27, 2010
Psh... bum. Looks like it's a combination of things, the OS itself, redundancy, security, obfuscation, 'features', the fact that installing things takes up way more space than it should... I dunno.
I... er... what? I did? And he did? When? ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20100928 - 00:57 (UTC)
Well, that's Windows for you. "Features" and whatnot.
Here. And here. OK, so let's say he didn't rape you. It's most certainly implied or something. And it was apparently for the Washington Journal. Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 01:04 Tuesday, September 28, 2010
Oh, been keeping track, have you? Well, I still don't recall the thing, and Dexter seemed rather happy, so... eh. Is it harming anything? ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20100928 - 02:49 (UTC)
I lurk around most of the time I'm on here. Especially when I have a few minutes where it would take too much time to edit anything or write anything. And as far as I know it's not harming anything. Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 03:05 Tuesday, September 28, 2010
Ah, lurking... good fun. I'm bloody rubbish at that, myself... (as you may or may not have noticed) ...but if you can pull it off, awesome.
So it might be harming something? Perhaps I really should go rape him back... ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20100928 - 03:32 (UTC)
I've noticed that you post a lot, which isn't bad- it helps more people find out who you are.
That might be a good idea. In this case, two wrongs make a left right. Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 00:22 Wednesday, September 29, 2010
It might be bad when it means they're finding out what a moron I am... I mean, really.
Do they? Well, I could try. Sounds like work, though.
And in completely unrelated news, I just got bored and put a giant L on the illogicopedia mainpage... should I remove it before anyone notices, do you think? I think maybe I should... *gets sidetracked* ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20100929 - 00:47 (UTC)
You don't seem like a moron. But what do I know?
Nah, it looks amusing. And it fits with the site (sorta?)
I found some old computer cables from my dad's office earlier and hooked my HDTV up to my CPU. My 1024x768 resolution (resolution of old monitor) is now at least 1440x900. The only problem I have is that the screen is a bit blurry. Any thoughts? Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 02:04 Wednesday, September 29, 2010
I don't know... what do you know?
Eh, most things sort of fit within a conglomeration of misfitting... I dunno. I seem to be leaving it just to see what happens.
I've done that before... rather disappointing, really. Turns out hdtvs are actually just excessively large low-res monitors. The pixels on them things are bloody huge. But apparently it shouldn't be quite as bad as it's being, so you'll just need to figure out some way for your video stuffs to cooperate, you know? Turn up the resolution. ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20100929 - 02:25 (UTC)
What do you know about what I know?
The highest resolution I can get is 1440x900 as it stands right now. But I'm sure I can get it higher or something. Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 02:36 Wednesday, September 29, 2010
I don't know what I know about what you know; I was hoping you'd know what I don't know about what you know.
Maybe your video driver has some options... windows can be funny about these things, but I'm sure it can be overridden. ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20100929 - 03:12 (UTC)
I checked, and it doesn't. There is a way to override it, but I'm too lazy right now.
I also saw that you've entered the Article Whisperer competition, and your entry as well. It was a huge side-splitter. Especially the part about likening KDE to the KGB or something. Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 21:12 Friday, October 1, 2010
Silly thing. It ought. Ah, but laziness... conquers all, it does. Conquers all.
Myes... I am just about to get to that. Right now. This very minute; I am actually going to write it! Both of them. Wrists, too. That was the one I actually meant to enter... and I may do a thing on buckets, since those are so nice... right... now! (I mean, I drank 2L of mountain dew and everything! If I can't pull this insanity off now, when could I? (granted, I've been downing the stuff for the past four hours trying to get an assignment done (I failed, mind. In the end I got fed up and invalidated the entire thing by editing the program on a binary level... and for some reason, it didn't even occur to me to edit it in a fashion that did something clever-like... but anyway, that invalidated the entire assignment, so now I'm feeling crazy and lost. Lovely combination.)) Guess we'll soon find out... *pours another colour of mountain dew* Blue time!) And now! I'm on it! *flails* ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20101002 - 02:04 (UTC)
I've heard that Mountain Dew can kill you or something like that. But only in large quantities and even then, the mathematical probabilities of that ever happening are... *goes off into a mathematical rant*
So you... invalidated the assignment by editing what program on a who now? That sounds more confusing than not- I can understand why you're lost Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 03:37 Saturday, October 2, 2010
Hells, too much of anything'll kill a person. The way I drink it it's not going to, though. I have this massive mug, but I'll be nursing it all day (as I've done here). I'm not even drinking it fast enough to stay entirely awake right now.
The assignment was to take a compiled program, disassemble it into assembly code, see what it was trying to do it, and disable the 'phases' built into it by inputting the proper lines as determined by said disassembling. But I couldn't figure out the assembly language, so I just changed the program itself. Used the part of the assembly language I could understand, namely, the hexadecimal representation of the actual program itself, and then... modified it slightly. Changed the check equals to check not equals, that kind of thing... there were safeguards against that, of course, thus the invalidation, but... eh. I'm just happy I managed to figure out how to do anything with it, frankly. >.< Because it is confusing. Really confusing. ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20101002 - 04:01 (UTC)
That is true, as I go along in life, I've found that more and more things are destined to kill us off. A bit morbid, yes? Are there actual scientists who just go along finding things that can and will kill you? I'd hate to have that kind of a job- meteorology is more of my liking. Plus, meteorologists have a sense of humor, or so I'm told.
That's much better than what I could do. I can barely work with floppies and MS-DOS. Such old-fashioned tomfoolery! Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 04:11 Saturday, October 2, 2010
That, or... people keep just demonstrating these things. Like that gal who drank herself to death a few years back two cities over. And by drank, I mean water. So... yeah.
And hey, humour can be morbid just the same as anything... granted, usually meteorologists do get to avoid dealing with predicting morons, which resembles a plus. So you're a weather guy, then?
Meh, it was way beyond me, too. Only reason I got as far as I did was because my dad finally caved to my whining about how I was going to fail another class and told me how to do it. *shifty eyes* And dos is just weird. It's just... weird. *shudders* ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20101002 - 04:23 (UTC)
Wait, drank herself to death with water? Isn't that a form of drowning?
True, true. There are all types of humor. And that is a plus, the whole "not dealing with morons" thing. As for being a weather guy, yes I am. I've been interested in weather since I was three.
Everything about Microsoft is either faulty or weird. And by weird, I mean virus-ridden. Or something. Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 15:36 Sunday, October 3, 2010
No, drowning involves inhalation into the lungs. She, like, overloaded her stomach and digestive stuffs or something. So... eh.
Aye, it's the all types that makes humour so great, methinks. At ant rate, neat. What happened when you were three?
I've never actually had any trouble with viruses... it's weird. I did have a lot of trouble with anti-virus software, though, but once I removed that, the system worked just fine. Granted, I hardly use windows or really, any microsoft software, at all, but still. I do use their servers and a keyboard they made, though. It seems fine. Although the server may just seem fine because I'm using a third-party application... ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20101003 - 18:17 (UTC)
Oh my. I suppose that is possible- it has been done before (well, obviously). But still, that takes quite a lot of effort, or so I'm told.
When I was little, I was afraid of thunderstorms, so whenever there would be a thunderstorm in our area, my parents would take me out onto our back porch and sit me in one of their laps until the thunderstorm passed so that I wouldn't be scared of them anymore.
...needless to say, it worked quite well. A bit too well, perhaps.
I'd much rather not use Windows, but I don't have enough of a hard drive to do anything about it right now. I'll most likely change OS when I get a laptop for college. Dual booting and whatnot perhaps. Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 19:10 Sunday, October 3, 2010

edit Belated Congrats

Congrats on Winning Noob of the Month. I know you don't know me, but I was here, once, and was Noob of the Month, mentored by a Noob of the Month, and mentored two Noobs of the Months, so that gives me the right to congratulate you. Of course, just signing up here gives me the right to congratulate you, so what I just wrote is pretty meaningless. WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 06:49, September 24, 2010 (UTC)

Thank you for the congratulations! And I know you- I've seen you around somewhere before. Maybe at the post office on the corner or the bagel shop on 3rd Street? Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 23:54 Friday, September 24, 2010
Yeah, and I just won a contest to see which man could hold the most bagels without using his hands or mouth.... WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 21:55, October 1, 2010 (UTC)

edit You're going to need to archive your talkpage soon, at this rate.

Aye; I understand the lady was high out of her mind at the time... that'll make such things easier, eh?

...maybe they did. >.<

Can't you just, I dunno, borrow a spare hard drive, back up the stuff you care about, and put something smaller on it? Or is my family weird in that we all tend to have spare hard drives and crap lying around?

Dual booting is fun, though. Every time I reboot my computer, it thinks it's in a different timezone. Currently, it doesn't think it's in any specific timezone, though; it's just plain wrong. On that note, I should probably reboot. Ta! ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20101004 - 01:47 (UTC)

But of course. Drugs make everything better. I know, my talkpage is at 60-something kB long. I'll archive it at some point.
I've already tried salvaging spare parts from my dad's office, but no hard drives were to be found. I do have two 4 GB flash drives thouhg, so maybe I'll just back everything that I want up and get a new computer or something. Oh wait, because I'm heading off to college in two years, I can't get a new desktop even if I pay for it. Oh well. And what do you mean by "putting something smaller on it?"
I wonder why it does that. Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 00:07 Tuesday, October 5, 2010
They don't... *pauses* Erm, depends on the drugs, I guess.
Oh... well, that could do it. And what does starting college soon have to do with not getting a new computer? Seriously, what? o_O I'm in college and I have four computers, granted one doesn't work, one is incredibly, shall we say, dense, and one is a pile of cheap parts, and one... isn't actually mine... but I had two of those and bought two of them before going off to uni, myself.
Er, smaller OS, I guess. You know. At least you wouldn't have to dual-boot, right? ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20101005 - 01:08 (UTC)
I guess the main issue is that if I replace my seven-year-old computer now, that I wouldn't be able to take it to college and it would just sit and not be used on my desk at home. Plus, I'll be needing a laptop for college, or so I've heard. My father used to build computers and work with code and all that, but he has since left this earthly plane, so he hasn't been able to work with his computers all that much.
Yes, yes. Quite. I suppose not. Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 01:43 Tuesday, October 5, 2010
Why not? Why would you have to leave it behind? And laptops run nicely alongside desktops as spare monitors/processors. Synergy is such a lovely program. Aww... I dunno what I'd do without my dad to fix my computers for me when I utterly destroy them... maybe learn how to do it myself? Erm.
o_O ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20101005 - 02:14 (UTC)
I'm not sure if I've mentioned this or not, but the sanity of my family is questionable. There's good crazy and bad crazy, and they're leaning towards bad crazy. But that's another story entirely. I guess I'd appear rich or something if I went off to college with both a desktop and a laptop, but I dunno. And that might be a good idea, learning how to undestroy computers. Use your powers for good! Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 15:41 Wednesday, October 6, 2010
Oh dear... well, that'll make things fun. Still, can they really stop you after you order 500$ worth of computer parts in the middle of the night and assemble them on the floor into a startlingly high-end crap machine with a bloody giant, glowing blue fan on the side of the case that you hadn't noticed was there when you selected the cheapest metal case with free shipping you could find? Seriously, though, you can get a decent enough laptop and desktop for combined under 1000$; my desktop was 800$ two years ago and still handles most games amazingly and I almost never even use it for that. (and 100$ of that was the extra 2TB of hard drive because I'm a digital hoarder... another 100$ was the new videocard because the cheaper one I originally got annoyed me... there was also an extra 100$ or more because I just had to get a 3GHz quad-core processor for some reason...) If all else fails, you could also just buy a laptop and hide it. I did that. Said laptop is currently hiding in a box until such time as I can find an OS for it. Bloody amazing computer, save for the fact that it doesn't like any of the operating systems I'm actually willing to use. And I'm too lazy to make it like them for now.
And you'd only appear rich if the computers actually look nice. I didn't appear rich at all when I was in the dorm, something about how mine were always falling/being taken apart, covered in plants, and... well, I had two computers stacked on top of each other and was using it as a bedstand. And one of them had a ten-year-old case. That helped.
Good? Gooood?! What is this good you speak of? ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20101006 - 16:47 (UTC)
I read an article in a computer magazine (I seem to be buying a lot of them nowadays) about how to cope with going from 250 GB down to 60 GB, and I laughed my rear off. They're whining about 60 GB- I have 28 GB on my desktop! I also appear to have inherited my father's need/want for the most updated technology possible- I would buy a new laptop/computer and immediately something better would come out. And what OS is your laptop using (well, in this case, not using because it's in a box being not used)?
I just don't want my things stolen. Because no matter where I go to college, whether it be Millersville University or Embry-Riddle, there are going to be idiots, unfortunately. And those idiots might be your room mates, and they might get drunk all over your computer, and then you'll have to clean it out and then your HDD will be wiped and then you'll have to kill your room mate and sell his body to the Mafia just to pay for a new one. Wait, you don't sell bodies to the Mafia? Weird. I do it all the time. Helps pay the bills, you know.
Did I really say "use your powers for good"? Who would do such a thing? Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 02:55 Friday, October 8, 2010
I went from 40GB down to 10GB with my linux installs... but those were just linux installs. And that was because I was turning one into three. But really, space isn't an issue so long as you don't have random junk and random applications eating it up. People do like their bloatware these days, though. And see, that's why you don't buy what's new - buy what's cheap. And... newish? Because new is pointless anyway! Currently, it doesn't have any OS, though. It doesn't even have a hard drive. *shifty eyes* Well, it does have one, it's just... over here. *holds up hard drive* Heeee. (I think I had some plans to fix it by putting it in another, similar, machine and setting it up from there, but never got around to it)
So make them look crappy. Worked for me... nobody ever even tried for my paint-encrusted cat-hair-packed computers... (they were seriously full of cat hair when I went. Seriously. And dust.) On the other hand, what would be even funnier would be to take a dead laptop, leave it unattended, and see if anyone steals it. I tried that. Nobody stole it. It was sad.
You've never actually cleaned out a computer that's gotten spill on it, have you? Usually, nothing much actually gets past the case (kind of what it's for), anyway, but even when it does, the things that'll ruin are the open, outward things - connectors, boards, heatsinks... disk drives on their shelves'll probably be fine unless the entire power supply goes out.
Don't ask how I know this.
I usually sell bodies to hospitals. You know, they get desperate and want organs...
A Good Person, presumably. ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20101008 - 03:14 (UTC)
I'm a bit weary with installing a new OS over my old one right now. Particularly if something goes wrong, and it often does, then what do I do? The Windows XP disc is lost somewhere, and I wouldn't have anywhere to find help because my main computer is shot. I'd love to use a different OS, but because of space and other reasons, I can't. At least, not right now.
Regarding space and all that, I was looking at Desktop BSD or whatever it's called, and it said that it needs at least 1.3 GB (something around there) for the OS, and I have 973 MB free right now. With no "random junk" on my computer (C:\WINDOWS takes up around 22 GB, my music folder another 5 GB), I'm sort of pressed for space as to what to do.
I don't really want them to look crappy- when I got my iPod touch back in 2008, I was OCD about the screen getting dirty. A computer with paint all over it I wouldn't care about (that gives me an idea...), but having cat hair all over it would make me crazy. Maybe I'll just paint the case or something. And by paint, I mean drip paint and all that.
No, no I haven't. But I've heard stories...
I am asking. How do you know this?
Not the hospitals around here. Odd people they are, saying that they've "already got enough bodies". Ridiculous. Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 16:54 Sunday, October 10, 2010
...Actually, I have a better idea. Get a new hard drive. It's a laptop, right? Is it SATA? I've seen 1TB laptop drives for 120$, so I rather imagine a 25GB one would be a lot less and that's more than enough space for even a packrat like me. And if you cannot get an OS you like to work on the new drive, just put the old one back, and get a usb external drive case and carry the new one around as extra storage. (hells, you could even just get a desktop-sized drive case and use the drive from your shot main, if the hard drive is still fine. Wouldn't be able to boot from it if it was windows, but... it'd make for storage space and maybe you'd be less against testing new OSs on that one)
That's the screen. Who cares about the rest? (And piling random crap on top of the things'll do it, too.) And I didn't say all over it. I said in it. But... yeah. Components with non-matching colours can make things look less desirable, too. Say, a black case with beige DVD drive... oh, and if you can get one of those old giant 10" floppy drives, that'll make a computer look old... doesn't even have to be connected to anything. The mere presence, you know?
Er... no reason. *shifty eyes* I definitely did not spill Mountain Dew in my computer. Definitely not.
They... that is odd. Intriguing; I may have to look into that one of these days. ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20101010 - 17:26 (UTC)
Nah, it's a desktop. I could just get a USB external drive, but I'm too lazy and poor. And it's a Dell Dimensions 2300 Series. I just find it hard to believe that my hard drive had 5 GB free after Windows was installed, even back in '03. This is madness. I just need a cheap solution.
Wait, cat hair in the computer? I can relate, I've got two dogs and they shed everywhere. Especially on clothing that I want to wear and that happens to be in a closed dresser drawer. And just about everything else. You also think that I have the computer knowledge to put a 10" floppy drive in my computer. Or do anything with my computer. Shit, I forgot where I was going with this. Again.
But of course. And I definitely didn't spill coffee all over my desktop last Wednesday either. And my room certainly doesn't smell like burnt coffee, why would you even suggest something like that? Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 02:15 Friday, October 15, 2010
You could also just get a desktop-sized external drive case... that'd be cheap. You could also steal old laptops out of dumpsters.
Eeeh. You need to do what I did. Crash course in computer parts. Order a pile, try to get all the important bits and match up the sockets, and then assemble! I learned... surprisingly little from that, actually, but... I forgot where I was going with this. Too. O_o Ick. Charred mountain dew smells worse, I bet. ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20101015 - 23:45 (UTC)
I suppose that would work. And I dumpster-dive all the time, that's how I got this account!
That is way too much work for me. Period. And I'm way too tired to add anything else right now. It probably does. Leutnant Herr Thatdamnedfollowspot 04:12 Saturday, October 16, 2010

I never said they were good for you, silly. On the other hand, too much of even a good thing is bad. Remember that, sonny.

Well, currently, probably. I've too much to do, too much to do... I don't even have time to get an article that was prematurely vfhed vfh-worthy. Or even proofread it. Uuuurg. Maybe I should go ask an admin to take it down. Except I don't even have time to do that... I need to go. Ten minutes ago, needed to go, need more time... ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20101018 - 19:47 (UTC)
Creative? Me? Have you seen the articles I write?
Same here, but I still end up logged into Uncyc all the time despite the fact that I've forgotten my password to the site. And I'm working on a fifth article for UnNews right now. Thatdamnedfollowspot Cartoon-pumpkin 20:38 Monday, October 18, 2010
Eh, they're better than mine. Seriously, have you seen mine? Manholes and bananas. That's all I have. Every time... yick.
You... forgot your password? Good job. >.< Good job. Ooo, you do unnews? ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20101018 - 23:42 (UTC)
And banana manholes, yes.
I have them saved in my browser seeing as I'm too lazy to remember each and every one. All i know is that there are letters in my password. And possibly numbers. I do UnNews from time to time, I'm putting off one about the recent ruling by US courts that it's legal to jailbreak your iPhone. Thatdamnedfollowspot Cartoon-pumpkin 00:50 Tuesday, October 19, 2010
You only use one browser? o__O Odd.
Huh, can't say I've noticed. Then again, I do kind of avoid the news... what's that even mean, though, jailbreaking an iPhone? ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20101019 - 01:04 (UTC)
Usually. It's less confusing for me- I just switched from Chrome back to Firefox because Chrome is acting up again. Firefox 4.0b6 is a pleasant return to Firefox.
It means... well... doing things to the iPhone (or iPod touch for that matter) that will allow it to have third-party applications and lessen restrictions from Apple. Thatdamnedfollowspot Cartoon-pumpkin 02:13 Tuesday, October 19, 2010
What, firefox is on 4, now? I swear, it was 2 a month ago...
Having that be illegal would be rather silly, though, no? I mean, what's the use of hardware if not to develop software for it... and be able to use it? ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20101019 - 02:17 (UTC)
Technically Firefox is at 4. But I agree, they've been working a lot on updates and whatnot.
This is Apple we're talking about. Thatdamnedfollowspot Cartoon-pumpkin 02:22 Tuesday, October 19, 2010
Odd... and I also may not have been paying attention. Or even know what year it is.
I don't use Apple stuff. *blank look* ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20101019 - 02:27 (UTC)
Well it's 2010 (I think). Or somewhere around there. We are in the 2010s, right?
That's good. There was a period of my life where I was a huge Apple fanboy, but we don't talk about that. Thatdamnedfollowspot Cartoon-pumpkin 02:31 Tuesday, October 19, 2010
Er... it's at least 20 years since 1980, right? Then that fits... o_O
Why not? ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20101019 - 02:36 (UTC)
Something like that.
BECAUSE WE DON'T TALK ABOUT THAT. Thatdamnedfollowspot Cartoon-pumpkin 02:39 Tuesday, October 19, 2010
Let's talk about that. ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20101019 - 03:34 (UTC)
But we don't talk about that. Not even I talk about that. It's embarrassing. Thatdamnedfollowspot Cartoon-pumpkin 03:38 Tuesday, October 19, 2010
But... consider the children. Wouldn't you do it for the children? The nice, purple children? ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20101019 - 03:43 (UTC)

Where I come from, the children aren't purple. That's preposterous- purple children! They're all magenta over here. Thatdamnedfollowspot Cartoon-pumpkin 19:26 Tuesday, October 19, 2010

They been getting their carrots? o_O ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20101019 - 19:31 (UTC)
I don't know- I'm not their parent. My children are a glorious shade of magenta, and I make sure that they get their vegetables, no matter if they're good for you or not. Thatdamnedfollowspot Cartoon-pumpkin 19:34 Tuesday, October 19, 2010
But the carrots? Do they get them? What colour are they? ~' Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20101019 - 19:36 (UTC)
Yes, yes, they get their carrots. And they're the same ones as any other- orange with green, leafy ends. Thatdamnedfollowspot Cartoon-pumpkin 19:42 Tuesday, October 19, 2010
...orange? Carrots are orange there?! Oh, no wonder; if they're all wrong... well, that just explains it all. ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20101019 - 21:11 (UTC)
What color are carrots there? Thatdamnedfollowspot Cartoon-pumpkin 23:16 Thursday, October 21, 2010
Mauve. ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20101021 - 23:17 (UTC)
What color is mauve, exactly? Thatdamnedfollowspot Cartoon-pumpkin 23:32 Thursday, October 21, 2010
This, apparently... actually, it's kind of pretty. Nigh unreadable, though. ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20101021 - 23:34 (UTC)
I'm colorblind, so it doesn't really make that much of a difference to me :P Thatdamnedfollowspot Cartoon-pumpkin 01:14 Friday, October 22, 2010
Entirely? ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20101022 - 01:17 (UTC)
Red-green, blue-purple, and I have trouble with green and brown. Thatdamnedfollowspot Cartoon-pumpkin 01:25 Friday, October 22, 2010
Then you've never known the pain of a pure and vibrant blue boring into your brains? ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20101022 - 01:43 (UTC)
Unfortunately, no. Thatdamnedfollowspot Cartoon-pumpkin 01:55 Friday, October 22, 2010
Nor a horrific red? Oh, my, my... Actually, you're not missing much. It's just painful. Then you quit looking. The end. ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20101022 - 02:21 (UTC)
Nope, nor a horrific red. And when the colors change in the fall? How they're "so pretty"? I can only see the yellows and oranges. It's annoying. Thatdamnedfollowspot Cartoon-pumpkin 03:45 Friday, October 22, 2010
I find the fuss people make about them more annoying than anything else. They're just leaves, for crying out loud... although the purple ones can be kind of nice. At least, I think so. That may just be my annoyance at my mum complaining about them when I was a kid talking... ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20101022 - 04:24 (UTC)
There are purple leaves? Thatdamnedfollowspot Cartoon-pumpkin 04:29 Friday, October 22, 2010
Aye... some of them go purple. Mostly some maples and a few ashes. The ashes look downright strange, though; their usual colour being yellow and all. ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20101022 - 04:45 (UTC)

You won! Well, sort of. There was a bit of a tie.

Seeing as I haven't done anything for the better part of a month, I thought I was a shoo-in to win. Thatdamnedfollowspot Cartoon-pumpkin 00:32 Monday, November 8, 2010
Yes, why haven't you? ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20101108 - 00:35 (UTC)
I've been rather busy with school and relationships and whatnot. My sincerest apologies. Thatdamnedfollowspot Cartoon-pumpkin 00:37 Monday, November 8, 2010
Eh, no need to apologise; sounds like you've actually been at something productive. Which is generally good. Just don't forget to stop by, eh? ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20101108 - 00:45 (UTC)
