Crocodile Hunter Dead

September 4th, 2006 | Posted by pftq in Blabberbox | #

        Thought it was a joke at first - but yep… he’s dead now.   It’s  on nearly  all the news - one on Yahoo  here.   Kinda hard to believe.   Apparently he died from being stung by a stingray.   Normally that doesn’t kill anyone but according to a bunch of articles, the barb (coated in toxic and deadly as a bayonet on a rifle)  went through his chest.   He died from the puncture to his heart though - not the sting.

        Very sudden - not sure what to think of it…

Broken Wrist

September 4th, 2006 | Posted by pftq in Random Stuff | #
It's broken... not fractured, not dislocated, broken. Both bones. My right hand... the one I use to write with...April 25 2006: BeforeApril 25 2006: AfterWhat Happened???April 25 2006          This is probably one of the most random things that happened in my life. I was playing basketball at school at around 11:45AM. I was running in one direction and one of my friends was running the other way. Trying to run behind him to other other side, I didn't see his shoe out until I almost tripped over it and it was too close to my feet; by trying not to trip over it, I slipped. There was no way at all I thought it was much of a fall at all, so I just put my right hand out to stop myself but I was going forward a little too fast. My hand was originally palm down and flat toward the ground. It folded backwards until my palm was facing upwards, and I landed on hand and wrist, going forward the whole time. Basically I landed on the back of my hand/wrist while it was palm up from the ground.

Wrist Exercises

August 28th, 2006 | Posted by pftq in Blabberbox | #

Well, I went back to the doctor’s again for another check up.   They did a few tests and I found out my right hand had less than a third of the strength of my left. :O Ouch…

He gave me a few items that are supposed to help me get back strength: a 2ft strip of rubber band and a pink sponge thing.   Amazingly, it hurts to squeeze the sponge -_-

Meanwhile, I got switched out of PE this year by the doctor’s request.   One of the only classes still open was Adobe Photoshop.   It filled the Art requirement for graduation; plus I already knew alot of it.   Might as well get some credits so I don’t have to take Art later on.

Bah

Alt Symbol List

August 27th, 2006 | Posted by pftq in Blabberbox | #

Šỳmß☼£ś Łïšţ - Ħǻ ħá łøőķ ẃĥàŧ Ī ƒöůńđ!

Short intro:

  Hold the Alt key and hit 3-4 numbers on your number pad (make sure numlock is on).   You end up with a weird symbol.

The problem was you didn’t know what symbol was assigned to what number.

Here’s a complete list at The World of Stuff

Yeah - you can find a bunch on google but it’s hard to find a complete one, especially sorted like that. :D

This is going straight to the 42 section. :P

Aninotes!

August 26th, 2006 | Posted by pftq in Blabberbox | #

I just found this site today while browsing some forums.   Very funny stuff! :P Basically there’s an web address that you put a name into, and it’ll end up using that name in the animation.

Example : wow.youaremighty.com  

There’s a whole set at Aninote.com  :P

Canasta

         Several of my friends from Zoo Admin introduced me to this interesting card game a few years back. It was the first card game I learned that actually had more to do with skill than luck (aka Poker, 21, Deuces... generally luck). You can actually have real strategies set and many ways to play. It's pretty hard to explain but many people who learned it from me said it was similar to Rummy. I haven't played Rummy before so I wouldn't know. A good tutorial can be found at Yahoo. It's a pretty neat game, though a bit complicated at first. I suggest trying it out at some point if you ever find yourself without something to do.

         I don't really play it much anymore but I'm more than willing to meet new players. When I do play, it's usually on Yahoo Games.  Feel free to leave a comment or an email with your Yahoo ID, what room to meet  in, and the time and day if you want a match against me. I don't consider myself an expert, but I'm more than decent at the game. Tongue

         The new update in the Yahoo Games software in September 2006 seems to have thrown off a lot of people.   For those having a problem joining a game once a room (says table is attempting to pop up but won't), do check your Norton Internet Security if you have one.   Even if you disabled the pop up blocker on that, it'll block the table in the Ad blocker.   Yep, it thinks the Yahoo Games table is an ad.   To fix this, go to Advanced and remove urls that have "yahoo" in them.   Hope that helps! I noticed quite a few players lately having problems joining games....[More]

p.f.t.q.

August 25th, 2006 | Posted by pftq in Random Stuff | #
    This is a question I get asked from basically every person I meet.
What does pftq stand for? Simple.

The p stands for p
The f stands for f
The t stands for t
The q stands for q

I hope that clears it up everyone. Tongue

Back..

August 25th, 2006 | Posted by pftq in Blabberbox | #

Ok back for the last time this summer I think… Gah I hate roadtrips.   Spending a total of over 30 hours in the car is no good. -_-

Can’t say there’ll be much going on - last week of break and I still got 3 books, a 4-page essay, and tons of worksheets to study. :O
