you are violet

Your dominant hues are red and blue. You're confident and like showing people new ideas. You play well with others and can be very influential if you want to be.

Your saturation level is lower than average - You don't stress out over things and don't understand people who do. Finishing projects may sometimes be a challenge, but you schedule time as you see fit and the important things all happen in the end, even if not everyone sees your grand master plan.

Your outlook on life is bright. You see good things in situations where others may not be able to, and it frustrates you to see them get down on everything.

Interesting my colours are red and blue... I've been turning more towards blue lately for some reason or other. I'm not sure how accurate these are at the moment, although my dark outlook on life may be fairly accurate.  Anyway, 2-3 more days till I have to worry about the uni accommodation and where I'll go, although uni is still rough for me.  Yet again, I've not gone in.  And the worrying thing is that I promised my mum that I'd be going in till the end of uni, and this is the last week! T_T   Dammit all!  I wish I knew what was wrong with me.  I mean at UEL in my first year, I had relatively few problems, save for getting the work in on time, and in fairness, I never knew that each campus had a different submission deadline, I mean fuck that!  Then there was Design Methods, which I hated with a passion!  Of course then there was Chris, who constantly undermined me while I was there, or at least in my first year.  I was pretty alright after the first semester (B Yr. 1), then I was still okay after semester A (Sem. B starter), but when I got into semester B of year 2, I started to lose faith in UEL.  Some people (particularly those who went to UEL, and one person in particular comes to mind - yes you!) will perhaps wonder how I had so much faith in UEL, perhaps, but it really is quite simple.

It was obviously the excitement of going to a university, and the newness of it all, though admittedly I had an edge of cynicism as well, to keep me from going crazy... I mean, there was quote a few good things about UEL, but at the same time, it started going downhill as well, there were some outrageous things going on there!  Of course, now I'm out of there, I'm happier, but I still am flopping about like a fish out of water and I dunno why.  I mean, the first semester was fine, but then in the second semester, and second term, it got worse, I started feeling very anti-social for some reason, and now as of the end of term 3, I've hardly been to any classes.  It's funny.  And also, I'm in between a rock and a hard place; I know I'm capable of doing this degree, I mean at the stage I am now, I can set up a PC and install Windows on it, and get it hooked up to the internet, install hardware, and generally maintain PCs, and I'm also able to do websites to some degree, as well as knowing how to work Photoshop, and Dreamweaver.  I also have extensive knowledge on PC security; removing spyware and bolstering the PC's security, as well as firewall configuation, etc.

Oh, i just dunno at the moment.  Either way, my plans for today are to do the laundry, get food, and do shopping.  I also purchased the full set of Total Annihilation, Core Contngency and Battle Tactice, which is my last eBay splurge for a a while, although I'm considering looking at using eBay and Amazon for purchasing certain things, such as books or games,because it works out cheaper.  Additionally, I need to start compiling a grocery list as well as price comparisons, so when I do my shopping in future, I allocate an entire day for it, and go to the cheapest places and can thus save money.  Regarding shopping for games... I won't stop going to Game, but I won't do it as often either, unless they're cheaper than online shopping.  I'm going to kerb my impulsive spending, so I can start saving more money for important stuff, and don't drain things.  To this end, I'm also going to start looking at cooking my own food instead of having ready-made so often, specifically with regards to burgers, as for less than the price of one burger, I can get myself 12 baps and 8 burgers.  Ketchup and cheese are generally bought anyway, albeit real cheese, and not the processed crap.  I'm also going to look at trying to get more veg in my diet too, already I'm getting myself into buying juice again, which I intend to keep doing, and also buying mixed leaf which will help with my 5 a day.  I figure also I should look at trimming down my tummy a little too, seeing as it sticks out a little too much!

I do wonder if I'll actually start doing this, although I have a feeling I'm making a start, given that with my rice pudding, I'm looking at having raisins/sultanas mixed in.

Either way, I need to start a few re-evaluations of things.

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? :|

Okay, I never actually went into uni... I had to wait around to see if the tickets ever arrived, which they didn't, although I did get Enemy Infestation and the Vampire books, although NOT THE TICKETS! After much calling and searching around, I managed to get in truch with The lady at the other end is escalating the call to her internal department who should be able to tell me what happened with my tickets. I'll find out about them tomorrow... before 8pm, I'm assured. I hope so, because the concert is this Friday! My mum already had a go at me about the tickets, though she backed off after I called her back and explained the situation. Anyway, to top it all off, I lost 2 eBay auctions for Commodore magazines (Force and Power) (damn snipers) and my flatmate sent me a video of his ex (I kind of saw a bit too much of my flatmate as well!), so all in all it's been an interesting and stressing day. I do need to order another vampire book though, because the book I have is the 1992 Ed., and I want the 1998 one. I may end up sniping myself, actually. Either way, I need to go to uni tomorrow.

Oh, also someone came back to FSIRC, yay... fucking bitch.  Although I just agreed with a fellow Admin that if she stops being such a bitch, we'll let her stay.

So, first day back at uni, and I have to wait till later to go in, because I need to wait for some tickets to arrive for a Tangerine Dream concert at the end of this week. Other than that, it's really quiet... eBay stuff is trickling in, have my Commodore 64, my Night Moves (with a second one arriving soon, d'oh!), and a V:TM book, one of 4 I ordered, and am pondering a fifth one at the moment. I also got Vangers, and am waiting for Hexplore and Enemy Infestation to arrive, along with Enterprise (Original) plans and a few more C64 games... I may have to consider staying in till 10:30am each day for the next few days now, to ensure arrival of stuff, go figure. Uni bus is due to depart in the next half hour, I think... kinda forgotten at this point, heh... actually, it's in an hour. Either way, I think another nap is in order now, need to attempt to fix my sleeping patterns, as well as send some bread back because the best before date is the same day I bought it, go figure. I also am gonna be visiting another UKCBer after uni, if I actually get around to going in on time!

Either way, I need to go and sort out a few things, namely my bread, renaming of tags and uni stuff, or I'm screwed, really. I'm also looking at using my LJ as my main page for my new website, which is now hosted on a UK server, meaning speedy uploads! I do of course need to get some actual proper content up, but as of now, the following sites are uploaded, albeit unchanged save for minor link updates: (Scott's website) (my website)

The others need either uploading, transferring or an actual site being made! Either way, over the next few months I'll be kept busy!

Some quizzes:

You Are the Super Ego

While some people may think first and act later... you often don't act at all.

You rather be safe than sorry, and you take ethics pretty seriously.

Like everyone, you have some pretty crazy desires. But unlike everyone, you restrain yourself.

You have high standards for your own behavior. And you happily exceed them.

You Are Agnostic

God? Religion? Maybe... you're just not sure.
You're still figuring out your spiritual path... or figuring out you really don't care.
You believe that no one really can know the true story about religion or God.
So you might as well relax a little. You'll go crazy trying make sense of it all.
