Animation 403 ()

by fluffy at 9:20 PM
This is one of the things I was working on last night (and am mostly done with now, though I need to draw a person in running and jumping poses): new 403 error page.

I also have a 404 one in the works, and an oh-so-cute idea for a 500 page (for those rare but sunny times that I break something). I can't do the 500 one until I'm back at home though since I don't have my Logic XSKey with me (and so I can't record the song for it).

Project RAW ()

by fluffy at 1:09 AM
While I'm finally getting around to setting up my band's site, I decided to see about the whole remixing scene.

I may have played a bit too much Paper Mario recently.

Now I remember why I don't do open mics ()

by fluffy at 12:02 AM
An open mic is where people under a time constraint do everything they can to repeatedly violate that time constraint (taking advantage of the fact the MC doesn't want to be a bitch and risk alienating the regulars), while most of the audience is just there to see one or two people.

Also I never realized that my song "Gin Or Ginseng" could actually go over a lot of peoples' heads. I guess only performing it at Song Fight tends to skew my audience towards people who give a shit about video games and are at least somewhat aware of how shitty it is to work in that industry. I think only like ONE PERSON (aside from Spud) actually sung along during the bridge (***SPOILER WARNING*** it's the SUPER MARIO BROS THEME, people!) so I guess I need to learn my audiences better.

More iPod rebooting nonsense (, )

by fluffy at 11:00 PM
So, my iPod Nano (which I got because I got sick of the rebooting issues on my iPod 5G, which I sold to a friend) started having the reboot problems too. Instead of doing my usual horribly time-consuming process I decided to see if someone else had found a root cause.

On the WinAmp forums someone had discovered that the problem was with id3v2 tags where the comment was over 254 characters long! He also included a Perl app to find such files, but it was really badly-coded (and didn't actually work), but I rewrote it and it works great.

Bigger != better (, )

by fluffy at 11:26 PM
Sent to an Amazon merchant:
I ordered an Intec S-Video cable for GameCube from you, and what you sent instead was a Hip Gear Universal Cable. Although at first glance it would seem that the Hip Gear cable was a better product (since it supports more game consoles), I tried it out and the actual video quality on this cable is significantly WORSE than the quality even on the composite cable which came with the GameCube. These all-in-one products tend to be manufactured with lower quality standards than the dedicated cables, and so I would really like to exchange this item for the one I actually paid for to begin with.

Thank you.

Ice Cream Snake Eater (, )

by fluffy at 1:23 PM
Snake was in a convenience store with his retarded pal Goro (who was working in the sanitation department) to buy some ice cream, when Superfly Johnson and CJ held the convenience store up. So it was up to Snake to sneak around the shelves of overpriced candy and bust heads.

(Goro like ice cream.)

Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door ()

by fluffy at 12:52 AM
Why didn't anyone warn me that this is the most addictive video game ever?!

This is the first time in a long time that I've had to force myself to stop playing just so I could get to sleep, usually prompted by Mario dying two or three times in a row (making me realize I'm making bad decisions). Darwinia was also this captivating but it was also much, much shorter.

BEST. GAME. EVER.
