Aka Shish’s Place of Stuff

Archive for December, 2005

I am also good at Halo

Team 1: Shish, who has no xbox, and has only played halo campaign mode at a friend’s house (twice 1, half way though 2)

Team 2: 3 friends

End score: 15-Nil to Shish

Although that was seriously whoring the banshee (or ghost? the flying thing)… in regular 4-way deathmatch I only got scores like 22-8-8-5~

I’m a rocker, I rock out.

My friend’s air band (myself included) won the charity week air guitar competition \o/ I blame the his beard, and the chanting cult it attracts~

It also reminded me how lame school competitions are; the first act scored 8/10, most scored 9, and the worst 7. I’d much rather they give the first group 5 no matter how good they are, then rate others as better or worse…

A nice interface to my source codes

After Debian’s configurator seemingly doing nothing, I tried the manual route; I took the default config, edited one line to point at my repositories, and it worked~

Finally reading more of the Al|together releases~

Several months after Al|together 2005, I’m finally getting round to reading some of them, via VNC over SSH over HTTP \o/ Without sound, which is a big part of the atmosphere /o\

Mentioned here as I know several people who read this and might be interested~ They’re short stories, with pictures & sound. Narcissu being my favourite so far; it’s so depressing, in the happiest way possible ;_;
