Quick Update

It's been a while since I posted an entry, so I figured I would do so tonight.
Halloween is tomorrow. Where will I be? Tutoring. Oh well.
Had a good time with some friends Friday night, then spent the rest of the weekend sick. I bought Ghosts of Onyx, the new Halo book by Eric Nylund, on Saturday though – amazing, just like the other three novels. Highly recommended.
So yeah, that's about it.
Random idea: Who would be interested in a feature where you guys ask me questions about anything, and I answer them. 'Better Know an Admin.' Thoughts?

Short entry for tonight, since I have to get back to doing homework.

College doesn't seem to get easier after the first year. In fact, it gets crazier, busier (as you can see by the title), and much harder. Who would've thought that getting an education required so much work? So let this be a warning to you all. Also, don't try to get your Bachelor's and Master's degrees at the same time, that just makes it worse.

Back to the forges for me...

Rpg Contest #3

So, it's almost time for the second round of voting, and I've yet to decide how I'm going to sett it up. That's why I'm asking you guys to see what you think.

My first option is to have the top three entries from each poll go on to the semis, just like last time. Also like last time, all the first place winners would go into one poll, the second place into another, and the third place into the last; five entries in each. Then, from the semis to the finals, the top four first place, top three second place, and top three third place entries would progress to the final poll. The top three in this poll would be the winners.

The other option is to have the top FOUR entries from each category go on to the semis. With this setup, however, there would be only two polls, with ten entries in each. The problem here is how to decide which entries go into which poll. My three option would be first and second & third and fourth, first and third & second and fourth, and first and fourth & second and third. All of these have disadvantages that would make them somewhat unfair, so it is difficult to decide which to choose. Whatever the choice there, the top six entries from the poll with the first place entries would progress, and the top four from the other.

One final thing, I'm going to try something new in the Semifinal Polls. I'm going to call it a 'Referendum,' since it's somewhat similar to the political process of the same name. Some of you know (and have responded) to the couple of questions I posed in the RPG Contest #3 topic. Similar questions will appear in poll form in each of the Semis, with a variety of options. Hopefully this will allow us to improve upon the RPG Contest for #4.

Life... Don't Talk To Me About Life.

So much to do and so little time. That pretty much sums me up right now. Between classes and tutoring and BZPower, I'm reminded of a bathtub with all the water emptying out the drain. I want to get at least one other story about Brickfest posted, but I don't see when I'll have the time to. sad.gif In fact, there's a lot of things I want to do but haven't gotten around to yet.

One thing I did manage to accomplish this past Saturday was to play some Halo. I was on Live for about an hour, then I switched over and played 343GS on Heroic on Halo: CE. I think my favorite levels in the Halo series are the first five of the original (note: this does NOT include 343GS). The Flood can be just too much of a pain. I really wish I could play Halo: CE on Live though. Every time I go back I remember the awesome power of the pistol and the great multiplayer maps that didn't make it (Chill Out, Hang 'em High, and one other whose name isn't quite BZP-safe) and everything else I loved about the first. Here's hoping the feeling comes back for Halo 3!

G'nite all:

Now I lay me down to sleep,
Try to count electric sheep
Sweet dream wishes you can keep,
How I hate the night.

Debriefing

It's been almost a week since Brickfest, and I'm finally getting around to updating my blog. Brickfest was a blast. I know that there are people out there who dislike me and the staff of BZPower. But let me say this, these guys are some of the coolest people out there, and I was glad to spend the weekend with them. The creations were amazing, as were the builders I got to meet. The times spent outside the fest were great too, but I won't go into that too much here. It was a great way to end the summer, and I hope lots of you can come next year, even if it's just on the public expo days to say 'hi!'

After Brickfest, classes began. They've been alright so far, but talk to me again in two weeks and see what I say then. tongue.gif

Life is busy; it's hard to get a handle on it sometimes.

...See you space cowboy.

School Daze...

I'm sure many of you can relate to this in some way or other, either you've already gone back, or will go back soon (or you're 'lucky' and out of school). I return this Friday, drop off all my stuff, then head to Brickfest, so there's lots to do. I have to pack and make sure I don't forget anything, have to start thinking about books and classes again, etc. At least it means no more working, which is somewhat of a plus. On top of that, I'm seeing the Colbert Report again on Wednesday, so it's a busy, yet hopefully fun, week.

But don't think that means I won't be on BZPower; I'm always watching you guys...

And So It Goes

I figured I should do something to get the birthday message out of my sig, since that was over a week ago.

So, let's see, what happened since then. I went camping with some friends, good times spent around the campfire having fun. Then me and some other friends went and saw the Colbert Report being recorded. We actually made it on the show for a split second! Finally I went p to Connecticut for what was actually some BZPower-related business, but I can't really talk about that right now. :X It was a fun road trip though.

I'll hopefully be headed down to the shore this week. With all this fun and excitement, who has time to do things like go to work or check BZP? Just kidding guys, I'll still be here, so don't think you can start goofing off. tongue.gif

Happy Birthday To Me

Posted by Black Six , Aug 04 2006 · 222 views

I know a lot of you tried to wish me Happy Birthday earlier, but it wasn't actually my birthday at that time! Well, now it is, so I figured I'd make a blog entry about it, now that I've finished activating some accounts (yes, an admin's work is never done). The official topic is here (it's the real thing folks, I promise).

I hope you all have a good day on my birthday, and try not to spam too much! smile.gif

That Darn Sun Is Hot

If/when you get a summer job, try to avoid one that involves working outside. In addition to the job I mentioned before, I've been doing some landscape work for a neighbor. With the current heatwave we've been having, it's no fun at all. Getting soaked in one's own sweat while removing bushes and shrubs is not an enjoyable way to spend a summer break, although it pays well. Hopefully the heat will break soon and it won't be as bad. So let this be a warning to you all, outside equals bad; stay inside and surf BZPower. wink.gif

Anyway, had a big Halo 2 LAN party yesterday, which was pretty sweet, bringing back good memories of yester-year. Although I still prefer the original Halo, we all had fun, with fairly balanced teams. I just wish my friend had air conditioning in his basement, lol. Good times, good times...

Well, that's all for now, I had a little time so I figured I'd put something up; enjoy...

The Trainman Cometh

Yeah, about the title, don't ask...

Anyway, I booked my train ticket for Brickfest tonight, so I'm all set now, I have transportation, lodging, and most importantly, registration for Brickfest, this is gonna be an awesome way to end my summer before going back to school (I hope)!

Aside from that, the anniversary went pretty well, although it was a chore keeping up in Games & Trivia and Voting Booth, since suddenly everyone could post there; but we managed.

Expect to see another new topic in the Reference Desk soon, though hopefully without the punishment we had to implement in the last one. (At least it seems to have helped the problem somewhat.) For a hint as to what it might be, it was mentioned in both Q&A and VB recently, bum bum bum...

That's about it for now, I know I've been really bad about updating this thing regularly, such is life. Hopefully the future will be better in that regard, but that's what I always say, lol.

Fare thee well...
