Welcome

Greetings, 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 deadpete@iname.com. If you have any questions or comments, you can visit my forum.

  • The "ILOVEYOU" virus conspiracy
    7:43 PM CST, 05/05/00 -DeadPete

    I'm 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." -
    Seldolivaw Ssov

    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!

  • Welcome to DeadPete.com! / DeadQuake Alpha
    7:43 PM CST, 05/05/00 -DeadPete

    WOOHOO!! 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 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 smack. 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?

  • Trent Reznor / Fight Club / Dead Quake 0.1
    7:15 PM CST, 04/13/00 -DeadPete

    Wow, it's been a long time since I updated... A lot has happened, too. First, I met Trent Reznor!! Dear God, that was awesome! I sometimes still have trouble believing it, and it happened a couple weeks ago! The NIN concert was awesome, with some really great lighting effects, and huge digital TVs behind the band. The extra money for the floor tickets was well spent! After the show a bunch of us (about fifteen fans) hung around the bus and limo exits, waiting for Trent and the band to come out. Well, okay, we were waiting for Trent. No offense to the band, which is a great band, it's just that Trent is the main guy behind NIN. After two hours, we spotted the band in a limo, which pulled over so they could sign tickets. They said Trent left right after the show... Right. After two hours and fifteen minutes a nice four-door car pulled up to the limo exit, and a few people got in, one with a dog. Trent's dog. It sniffed my friends crotch. ("Dude, Trent Reznor's dog sniffed my crotch!") Okay. Fifteen minutes later, he finally came out the limo exit, and I was standing right next to him! I completely froze. I'm pretty sure my jaw dropped, but I couldn't really tell, since at that moment all that mattered was that Trent Reznor was right in front of me! He turned and saw me first, and I froze all the more. With considerable effort I forced the words through my mouth: "H... Hi! ... C-Could you sign my ticket?" Hehe... Dammit. Ah, well. He then spoke: "Yeah, sure." Dear God, Trent Reznor spoke to ME!! I froze again, and he signed my ticket. I was barely able to take it back when he handed it to me! He then went on to sign the rest of the groups stuff (primarily tickets). My friend next to me shook his hand (lucky bastard!! Why didn't I think of that?!) His girlfriend hugged him, as did most of the other girls. All the while he was signing, I just stood there like I was catatonic, and stared. He got in the car, and drove off waving, and we all waved good-bye, while slowly walking after it in longing. Some didn't wave, because they were too busy staring at their signed items, or confiding in their friends their amazement at meeting him. Ahh... What a great night... I still remember it perfectly. Well now, on to other news! I rented Fight Club now that it's out, and recommend everyone else does too! I saw it once in theaters, and had an instant obsession! Since renting it on Wednesday night, I've seen it five times, not counting today (some days I watched it twice). I've been working on a new site named -5 for a friend of mine, who is a really cool artist. Once the site is ready for the public, I'll post the news here. Also, I finally got back to work on my mod, and it's just about ready. I just need to fix an annoying error I keep getting when I compile the UI. If anyone might be able to help, please Email me! Oh, and one more thing. I finally also got back to making music, and should be releasing a bunch of my MP3s soon! Yesterday I finished one called "Postmodern Ultra-Retro Pseudo-Insanity of the Foot". Hehe, that's fun-ny. I have some other cool news, but until it's done I can only say you should check back here within a few days for something cool! Later.
