So yeah, a fair bit has happened in the past while... I went to counselling which got off to a good start.  We talked about everything under the sun, pretty much, including the paranormal, and I'm happy to say I'm gald the ball is rolling now, and I'll think it'll go pretty well, although as I've done it before, it'll be easier to properly get into it.  Anyway, not really a hell of a lot to say, although I'm moving flats on Monday, to Aragon Court.  If I'm lucky, I may ahve the same room I'll be residing in, so I won't have to move, though is that a lot to ask, I have to wonder.  Also, my flatmate and I will be doing the kitchen later on today (which I had to leave in a hurry because of the bad smell of one of the unwashed pans - which nearly made me sick!), if not this week plus I'm eating all the food I have so there's less to bring over when I move.  Its raining over here at present, although it seems to be on and off, but it's nothing compared to the flooding up north to be honest.  I've got something funny to share later, but in the interests of keeping the flow, I'm in the process of organising things a bit better... I'm taking the slimline cases from magzine cover discs and I'm shoving them into a CD wallet, so I can downsize the footprints of what my games take up... I'm trying to put 2 games from the same label together where possible, though this may end up taking a bit to fully sort... although things are coming along quite nicely.  It's probably just as well I'm starting now as it may take me a few days to get all this stuff sorted.  Other than that, I intend to go to the camera person tomorrow to get stuff sorted out, so I can get that loose end tied. 

On Monday, aftter I've moved... or rather Tuesday after counselling, I intend to nip over to the shop to do some replacement of foodage, and maybe looking at ways to lessen my load.  I'm thinking of selling off my monitor for starters and getting an LCD one, which I think would help muchly...

Other than that, I have this funny thing to show:

[00:02:13] <Spoofy> FSRadio: what do you think about God?
[00:02:17] <FSRadio> Spoofy: Cats are very intelligent, independent and yet very loving and friendly.
[00:02:27] <Spoofy> FSRadio: I asked about God, not cats.
[00:02:31] <FSRadio> Spoofy: Oh yeah, we were talking about God not cats.
[00:02:35] <Stormkeeper> lol
[00:04:05] <Stormkeeper> FSRadio: What do you think about dogs?
[00:04:09] <FSRadio> Stormkeeper: Cats are very intelligent, independent and yet very loving and friendly.
[00:04:18] <Spoofy> FSRadio: Stormkeeper asked about Dogs!
[00:04:45] <Stormkeeper> Okay, so not only does FSRadio think cats are dogs, it's dyslexic too... brilliant.
[00:05:00] <Stormkeeper> FSRadio: What do you think about cats?
[00:05:07] <FSRadio> Stormkeeper: Cats are very intelligent, independent and yet very loving and friendly.
[00:05:15] <Stormkeeper> FSRadio: What do you think about birds?
[00:05:18] <FSRadio> Stormkeeper: Cats are very intelligent, independent and yet very loving and friendly.
[00:05:25] <Stormkeeper> FSRadio: What do you think about sex?
[00:05:29] <FSRadio> Stormkeeper: No. Are you gay?.
[00:05:37] <Stormkeeper> FSRadio: No, I'm not :|
[00:05:41] <FSRadio> Stormkeeper: | FSRadio: I heard you are. You're sure about that?
[00:05:49] <Spoofy> what?
[00:05:50] <Stormkeeper> Cheeky fucker!
[00:06:08] <Stormkeeper> FSRadio: No, I'm bloody-well not gay :|
[00:06:14] <FSRadio> Stormkeeper: | FSRadio: Really? Me either.
[00:06:21] <Spoofy> haha
[00:06:23] <Stormkeeper> FSRadio: But you said I was gay!
[00:06:29] <FSRadio> Stormkeeper: Don't put words in my mouth.
[00:06:35] <Stormkeeper> ...
[00:06:49] <Spoofy> lol

So yeah, I got called 'gay' by a piece of software and then it denied doing it... cheeky fucker!

But that's it for now...

...the fact that I can carry on a random conversation about nothing:

<KyaraNAK> stupid naked fudge monkeys!
<Storm-KsH> Mmm... fudge
<KyaraNAK> why isn't she sleeping
<Thrawn> how would a fudge monkey be naked?
<KyaraNAK> it just IS
<Thrawn> is it supposed to be otherwise?
<Thrawn> I guess it depends on the fashion culture of fudge monkeys, whether it is socially unacceptable for the fudge monkey to be naked in the first place or not
<Storm-KsH> True

And there you have it... fudge monkeys.

Well, I finally got the Tangerine Dream tickets from, and I got a callback from them to be sure, which was nice.  My mum commented they were really last-minute!  I also got my second copy of Night Moves (which I don't really need), which came with a second copy of Midnight Resistance, though it's the second copy of Night Moves I have, meaning I have two copies of that and a 3rd copy of Midnight Resistance! I suppose if the tape ever wears down, I do have backups.  I did also get my Enterprise plans as well, and I'm due for some more eBay stuff today, though thankfully the tickets arrived today, as my mum is coming this Friday! I'll also need to go to uni today and rectfy everything, as well as check for mail, which reminds me I need to check my email too, heh.

I stumbled upon this, and like the guy said, this shouldn't be funny but it is:

"25% of the time you're on the periodical anyway." Say what? LOL! The guy on the radio is pissing himself at the convo, and I can't blame him to be honest. It did end a little abruptly the first time, but upon listening to it a second time, it seems less abrupt. Ask Ugg is quite interesting, mind... read most of it, and it's convinced me that marriage isn't such a hot idea, een considering the fact that marriage was going to be something I would consider at 30, but given I've lived through two divorces (not mine!), I should be quite wise to how damaging marriage can be when it doesn't work out. I mean, not only does it seemingly costs a bomb at the start of it, it costs a nuke during the divorce proceedings. I mean it costs more at the end of a marriage, then like a nuke, the effects of it are far-reaching and you feel the effects as time goes on, given you have to pay child maintenance, in addition to the fact that you lose half of what you own.  It's absolute madness.

In fairness though, I'm not against paying child support, provided the child is mine and not someone elses (poor bastard), but yeah, marriage is a bad idea because it ruins both sides financially.  I have no idea how this turned into a rant about marriage, but it did.  People should be used to my changing topics at a flick of a switch at this point, if they actually know me, or read my journal in some detail, but I'm now gonna switch to the fact that I got 10 lines from someone on MSN saying the same thing, a link which I highly suspected to be a virus.  I decided to research the url on Google and lo and behold, 2 links came up, one of which was on here.  Go figure.  The other one was a domain listing, which wasn't all that useful.  No doubt within the next 2 days or so, those links will be increased, especially as I'm going to mention it; (why didn't I register that domain name dammit!) with the accompanying line "is that you on this photo" is obviously a virus designed to trick gullable people into clicking on it, to which code is then downloaded to your PC, and then installed.  It then ends up sending the same link to people on your contact list.  If you happen to read this, and get the link after reading this, then please please please don't click on it!

I know you've been told this a million times, and likewise this virus isn't new, but seriously, besides this entry and here (it's in Dutch), these are the only two places that I know of that have reported this particular link.  I'm going to do some research into similar viruses to see if I can help people remove it, although I'm not sure if I can, depending on the sort of virus it is... as unless it's similar to those other types of viruses.  I'm not sure if up to date virus protection along with Firefox and NoScript will prevent download/execution of the virus, but I'm really not about to test the theory out!  I have this PC working perfectly stable (for Windows!), and don't wish to get the PC infected, although I'd imagine that having the above would help somewhat.  Either way, it can't hurt to Google "Panda ActiveScan" to get a second opinion, although as far as I know, it doesn't remove viruses... but at least you actually know if you have something!  Everyone should really protect their PC with Anti-Virus software (Like AntiVir), an up to date internet browser with popup and script protection (IE might have it, but I know Firefox definately does, when you download NoScript), as well as a firewall (you're own your own here) and anti-spyware software (Spybot Search And Destroy is fairly good, especially when used with AdAware).  It goes a hell of a long way to making your system much more secure.

Granted, it doesn't protect against everything, but at least you won't have to pay someone like me (be it cold hard cash or in pints) to fix your computer!  It's taken me 4 hours in total to remove spyware from a mate's PC, so really I'd rather miss out on some money/pints than spend 4 hours banging my head against a keyboard getting rid of spyware.  I mean, high computer literacy does pay (and get you paid), but at the same time, so does being computer illiterate, or rather you pay people like me, haha!  More often than not though, I provide local support for free, although I could really charge for my services, especially considering something like PC protection is quite often overlooked... I do notice that only my computer literate mates (of a similar level to me I might add) protect their PCs in any way, shape or form.  I've even had to secure my mother's laptop as well as that of my mates (in addition to fixing their hardware problems, which took hours! - speaking of which, I should drop over to them this week) for nothing... although you can hardly ask for payment off your mum, and with regards to your mates, it is a good excuse to catch up with them...

It really is amazing how I can ramble on.  It does make me wonder what happened with C64s if they got viruses on them, and then eventually phones will have viruses... so much fun, eh? :|

I finally watch Blade Runner The Director's Cut, which just finised now... And while I right this, Vanghelis' Blade Runner Them plays in the background, which is a classic piece of music in its own way.  Anyhow, I knew quite a while before this film had finished that I'd be left wanting more, go figure.  Just as well I'm getting the box set soon when it comes out then.  I finally got around to getting my hair cut, and by god there was a lot of hair!  The hairdresser I went to even commented I looked like a new man with all that hair off!  Anyway, Saturday turned out to be a fairly decent day, considering I got to the pound shop and did my Asda shopping in time, although I had so much that I had to call a taxi, but oh well.  Either way, my upward curve has started, as I now have my Easter Holidays, although I have less than 48 hours to do my coursework, and although I'm sure I ca do it, I think it may be a bit hairy!  After that, I need to worry about my CCS coursework, but thankfully I've managed to pass Multimedia, although I have about 4 week to do CW3 as well, argh!

I was gonna wriite an entry for Friday and before, but I'll prolly just delete the filler entry (it's hidden) and just replace it here.  It will seem a bit random, but that's what happens when you write up one line topic summaries :P  Although, this said I'm writing this from a perespective of quite a while ago, so I guess current events will also be included, but it has to be done... anything to make it flow smoothly, though admittedly how many people actually read my ramblings?  Hard to say, but at the end of the day, not many - if at all - will understand them!

With all that out of the way, I now have to start coursework >_<
stormkeeper: Picture of a wolf (Default)
Right then... I finally removed 3/4 of my AIM addresses.  I cannot delete them for some bizarre reason known only to AOL, so I just won't sign in on them any more.  Anone on GHTHotshot, SNw Stormkeeper and KennettGE have been transferred to Politik250, so if you get a message from this person, that's just me.  I'm gonna be registering a second, secret AIM address soon as well, so after that, those two names are all I'll be using.  The Politik name will be my public alias for AIM and Yahoo from now on.  I also cleaned up my remaining list, which was fun... need to start cleaning it up more, as for some of my contacts, I've not heard from them in years now.

With that aside, I need to tidy my room some more, and at long last, do my laundry, which is now separated in two, for easy washing, which is good.  The uni is replacing our mini-fridges, so I need to tidy up my room, plus eat as much as possible from it before... well, I dunno... it's a bit of a pain, given I did my shopping on Friday :|   I have also yet to do my coursework, as well as go outside, which sucks a lot.  I'm hoping I'll have the will to go outside tomorrow, but I guess we'll see.

Nothing else to mention really, though I did get a few texts, and I also had to deal with a crazy stalker girl... oh, and Storm Rain hit its bandwidth limit, so yay.  I'll fix that tomorrow.  Oh yeah, better send off that email too.

Anyway, that's really it for now.  Maybe I'll have something worthwhile to write about later... although I'm having a tendancy to read my friend's list more than I comment lately, but that's obvious anyway...
