full of pep this morning. Must of had his Grande
Norton in Fight
and welcome to my web page. My page has many subjects,
so I cannot generalize the point of my page. In it resides
both personal (Music and Quake)
and professional (see Downloads
and Services) goals
of mine. Smaller sections that are not big enough to
have their own categories, but are big enough to give
honorable mention, are listed under Miscellaneous [MISC].
Any suggestions can be sent via Email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

"ILOVEYOU" virus conspiracy
7:43 PM CST, 05/05/00
sure that by now just about everybody has heard
about the "ILOVEYOU" virus, and is worried
about protecting their computers. You've probably
also heard that the creator of the virus is a fifteen
year old boy from Manila, Phillipines who goes by
the name "Spyder", and whose real named
is probably Michael. Then again, maybe not. Wired
News has posted an article on "Love
Bug: The Conspiracy". Besides naming
various benifiting groups, such as the RIAA
and everyone's favorite evil monopolist Bill Gates,
they also have a quote from someone finally publicly
stating the stupidity of using Microsoft Outlook:
"The point is that the ROOT cause of these mass
virus proliferations is a pathetically insecure
email client foisted upon the public by a certain
evil monopoly whose name I need not mention." -
If you use Microsoft Outlook, and want the secure
alternative, go check out Netscape
(the new 4.73 has been released, so don't forget
to upgrade!), and be freed from virus worries! I've
always used it, and despite the dozen or so viri
that have landed in my mailbox, I have never had
a virus infect my computer.
One final note: I will not be making any posts for
a while, as I will be giving DpDesigns a new look,
and rearanging some of the areas!
to DeadPete.com! / DeadQuake Alpha
7:43 PM CST, 05/05/00
I've finally moved to DeadPete.com! After
over a year of owning the domain, I finally found
a host! Big thanks to DrDemento for the hosting!
I'll have a cool new skin soon for the Quake 3 Bones
model! And last, but definitely not least, I have
decided to release an alpha of my mod, DeadQuake!
It's primary remaining hurdle is the new UI menu.
I got everything ready, and when I went to compile,
it gave me a bunch of errors which don't make a
lot of sense to me (I'm not really a coder, I just
kinda jumped into my own self-taught crash course,
and got lucky :). If you think you can help me with
the UI, or just want to steal my coding for the
new menu (as long as you cite me of course!), then
click here for a ZIP file
with the source file. It isn't quite what
is displayed on the DeadQuake
page (i.e.: there is no locational damage),
but I'll fix that later. Until then, click
here to get the DeadQuake Alpha! One last
bit - I'm thinking about making a new design based
off of the look of the entrance
page. Any feedback?
