For once I have some “real” news…

Part 1:
Remember a little while back I posted about attending a Security Guard Training course? Well, I finished it this past Saturday (24th) and while I won’t know if I really passed or not for another week or so, I think that I did really well. On our pre-quizzes I got in excess of 80%, and the final exam wasn’t much different.
I do know for a fact that I passed the practical exam, but it wasn’t really that hard. We only had to demonstrate that we knew how to perform the specific maneuvers we were taught (straight arm bar, bent arm bar, wrist lock, a few others) and I only hurt myself once!

Part 2:
Perhaps you noticed, perhaps you didn’t, more than likely you don’t even care but the site has a new skin.
If you’ll look in that select box on the right, you’ll see a new entry at the bottom titled ‘Pink Embers’
This skin was created from a photo my dad took of a campfire. He said that it was burning so hot the embers were pink.. I wasn’t aware that pink was one of the colours you’d see in hot coals, so I’m kind of wondering if the camera didn’t just distort the colour somehow (hey, it changed our graduation gowns from black to purple).
Anyway, just figured I’d make an announcement. It might have gone unnoticed otherwise (it might still go unnoticed now), plus it’s not like I’m around all that often anymore.

Cya,
Rob.

Original post by Saunders:

I was just reading Dain’s Live Journal and found this nifty quiz, I was bored and not quite ready for bed (at least, when I started it, I’m about to drop right now) so I decided to fill it out:

Grab the book nearest to you, turn to page 18, and find line 4. Write down what it says.
“Enemies nearby are overwhelmed by her ferocity and strength, and suffer a reduction in”
– Lords of Everquest instruction manual

Stretch your left arm out as far as you can. What do you touch first?
A chair

What is the last thing you watched on TV?
Law & order

Without looking, guess what the time is.
12:30am

Now look at the clock, what is the actual time?
12:22am

With the exception of the computer, what can you hear?
-My parents and their friends talking and playing cards
-The stereo playing my parents music

When did you last step outside? What were you doing?
It was around 10pm; I was coming home from visiting my boss at work

Before you came to this website, what did you look at?
My server access log. It showed a reference from Dain’s LiveJournal and reminded me I hadn’t read it in a while

What are you wearing?
Glasses, an old black shirt with two white “racing stripes,” some pant/shorts with zip-off legs

Did you dream last night?
If I did, I don’t remember anything about it

When did you last laugh?
Today at my BST course when the instructor made someone suffer

What is on the walls of the room you are in?
Not much actually… a set of curtains and a set of cabinets

Seen anything weird lately?
Not particularly… I guess when one of the students in the BST course was able to manoeuvre out of the instructors grasp that was kind of surprising… not necessarily weird though

What do you think of this quiz?
I?ll have to agree with Dain, it’s certainly unique

What is the last film you saw?
Jeeze I have no clue… I guess it would have to be a good portion of Porky’s

If you became a multi-millionaire overnight, what would you buy first?
First? Wow… uhm… to be frank, it would probably be like a burger or a sub or something

Tell me something about you that I don’t know.
Uh… I prefer brussels sprouts to cabbage. How?s that?

If you could change one thing about the world, regardless of guilt or politics, what would you do?
I?d make everyone be more accepting of new ideas and concepts

Do you like to dance?
No. I will tap my foot, nod my head, but full body dancing is something I don’t like and don’t look forward to ever having to do again

George Bush: is he a power-crazy nut case or someone who is finally doing something that has needed to be done for years?
Never met him, but I might go with the first choice

Imagine your first child is a girl. What do you call her?
“Beautiful”… er oh, you mean her name? I haven’t a clue… I?ll just go with Holly for now. Good friend of mine

Imagine your first child is a boy, what do you call him?
Er crap… another one? I don?t have time to think in depth about these… actually… Keith. My dad’s name. I was always particularly fond of the name itself

Would you ever consider living abroad?
Not now. I don’t even want to leave the city I?m in, let alone the country

Will you pass on this survey?
Pass it? I didn’t know it was being marked! Can I change my answers? What’s it out of? What percentage of my grade?

Donkey Kong Country Arrangement Collaboration

After finally deciding to organize a DKC1 remix album, I spent the last couple days asking artists if they were interested in participating. This is a collaborative idea I’ve had for a while now. The DKC soundtracks are different from most games’ in that they excel at so many musical fronts: they’re developed in form, strong in melody, and impressive by today’s standards even in sound quality. They are a challenge for any talented remixer to rearrange without willfully replicating the original compositions, yet there remains plenty of room for creative liberty and personal interpretation.

DKC1 set a benchmark for videogame graphics, gameplay, and -yes – music. There’s a lot of love for this game, probably more than for its sequels, and for good reason: it started it all.

This project is going to be rad. We’ve got a lot of excited people on board who are doing good stuff. Check out the OCR forum thread and come chat with us in our irc channel (irc.enterthegame.com, #dkcproject).

TREMBLE AT MY POWER!!!!!!!!

*Edit*

Right, I was supposed to add more to this…
So yeah, uh, not much to say, I’ve been busy with work and stuff. With the new season, business has picked up a bunch. Also, Ginnsu has moved into an apartment, and I’ve been spending a lot of time hanging out there. He’s got no computer, worth talking about, yet, so you won’t be seeing him online much (unless he goes to his parents’ house).

Also, starting tomorrow, I’m going to be attending a a security guard training course. It’s in the town next to ours (1 hour drive away), starts at 9:00am (tomorrow anyway, it might be starting at 8:30am afterwards) and is 8 hours long. It’s going from the 15th to the 24th (with one day off on the 20th). Hopefully the certificates it brings will help me find a good job, something that I can actually support myself with.

Anyway, I’m going to bed now. Stupid crap having to get up early and drive for an hour, bleh.

*Edit^2*

The course was interesting. Mostly just note taking and discussion so far. Turns out we’ll be starting at 8:00am every morning now… “yay”. I could handle getting up for a class at that time, but I don’t like having to drive for an hour to get there.
