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

August 25th, 2006 | Posted by pftq in Random Stuff | #
         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

I'm Off Again...

August 18th, 2006 | Posted by pftq in Blabberbox | #

        Starting tomorrow morning - I’m going to be gone for a week or so on yet another road trip.  No clue exactly where we’re going, but it’s somewhere at least.   Just hope I don’t have to be stuck in the car for too long.   Spent way too many hours this year already waiting to get somewhere, instead of actually being somewhere.

New Record: Most Online at One Time!

August 14th, 2006 | Posted by pftq in Blabberbox | #

        I just came on at some random time today and saw that there were 22 people on the site. :O I checked the Stats Page (Click on the counter on main page) and the record of 20 people on the site at one time had been broken! The new record is 23, meaning if I had been online a bit sooner, I could have bumped it up to 24 :P Well that’s still pretty good.   23 people… Haha nice! :D

Tennis Left-Handed

August 12th, 2006 | Posted by pftq in Blabberbox | #
         First time playing tennis since I broke my wrist.   I normally play many times a week when the weather is good.   Well I was feeling good today and my hand didn't seem as fragile anymore - at least I hope it isn't.   It was an interesting experience.   Every time the ball came toward my right I had the urge to swing at it with my right hand, although I held my racket with my left now.   My left hand however had like no skill whatsoever.   I was lucky to make any good shots.   I often found myself standing in a position ready to swing with my right hand, when I should be ready to hit with my left.   A few times, I tried holding the racket in my right hand.   It was very very heavy - is all I can say.   I actually felt some sharp pain shoot up my wrist so I didn't try it again.

         I did get better later on in the game to the point I was able to return the ball to the otherside, no fancy stuff though.   I'm sure I'll be able to play normally eventually - though I doubt it'd be soon.   It sure would be awesome when my right hand heals though - then I can play with both hands! Bahaha! Grin

Strange Visitor in Gallery

August 12th, 2006 | Posted by pftq in Blabberbox | #

        Very strange happening today.   I was just going through the site and seeing what everyone was lookin at (cause I can :P ) and there’s this one guy who’s in the user manager (admin panel) of the Gallery.

        Now a few points here.

  1. I’m the ONLY admin on the gallery.
  2. I’m the ONLY MEMBER on the gallery.

        I doubted it for a bit but when I refreshed the page, the guy had gone to another page on the admin panel.   Just incase he had somehow got into my account, I decided to change my password (you can never be too safe :P).   It seemed to work.   The guy got sent to the log out page.   I was watching very carefully what he was doing now.   He went to the log in page.   Then suddenly he ends up in the admin panel again. :O I decided to ban his IP instead.   That seemed to work again as he was sent to the log out page.   But then he just went to the log in page again and ended up on the Ban users page - same as me.   Then he went to the Albums manager.

        I shut down the gallery for a bit to see what he would do (and because I didn’t want anything happening to the albums :P ).   He went to the forums instead where he went idle.   Several minutes later, I reopened the gallery and he appeared on the log in page again.   I shut down the gallery again and come back an hour later to reopen it.   Well he hasn’t back yet as far as I’m concerned.

        Very weird! :P

NorseWars.com Forum Hacked

August 11th, 2006 | Posted by pftq in Blabberbox | #

       The NorseWars.com Forums  got hacked again.   They were hacked back in January as well.   Well that was a close one - I managed to stop them before they did too much.   I was actually in the admin panel right as they deleted all the admins - including me. :O I got kicked out but the guy’s name was 123.   Obviously he didn’t put much thought into it so I guessed his password was the same - and what do you know it worked! Pretty funny - I ended up recreating my own account, banning him as him etc.   For now I disabled new user registrations - incase those guys come back again.   That was pretty darn close and I don’t want to go through it again. :O

Possibility

“That’s impossible!”
“You’re not going to believe this!”
“I don’t believe this!”
   We live in a very large universe.  Our Earth only takes up so little, even a fraction of a percent of the entire universe is beyond our comprehension.  Yet we decide that there are things that are impossible.  There are a definite number of things that are possible.  We’ve only observed what we can of our microscopic portion of the universe.  Who are we to declare such absurd statements?
   Things can happen.  They’ve happened before.  Things that people say are impossible or would never happen – they’ve happened.  Most come quietly – it never rises to the attention of the world as a whole.  Some do not come quietly – and those are what catch the entire world off guard.  Anything can happen.  What are the chances? Not very high.
   If anything can happen, can everything that can happen all happen...[More]

Left-Handed for a Whole Year

August 9th, 2006 | Posted by pftq in Blabberbox | #
         Well I got another check up today on my wrist that I broke  back in April.   There wasn't really any bad news - but it was a confirmation of what I didn't want to hear.   I was not to do any heavy lifting for the next entire year.   Completely restricted to a few pounds at maximum.   Gah I was hoping after a few months I could start using it normally but apparently it was for an entire year - no joke.   Had to cancel my P.E. class the upcoming year as well - so I'm guessing I'd probably take it during the summer or something.   Since I have to take it with nobody I know (just about everyone is taking it this year and not the next), I'd rather keep it short.

         Meh I can't wait for this to be over Tongue

Anti-Stupidity Pill

August 8th, 2006 | Posted by pftq in Blabberbox | #

Just happened to come across this while I was browsing the web today.. Pretty funny title.

Anti-Stupidity Pill

The pill actually reduces short-term memory and boosts your “attentiveness” - basically makes you more aware.   I guess it depends on how you define “stupidity”.

They only tested on animals from what I read.   Good luck to the first human who tries it! :P

If the pill works, I know a few people who could certainly use something like that. :P

Just kiddin.
