a while now my E-Mail address listed on the site has been
unchecked by me. This is because the E-Mail company greatly
altered the way their service works without notifying me,
and I just thought I was recieving less E-Mail/spam. I am
currently trying to wade through the flood of old E-Mail
that I have found so that I might pick out actual E-Mails
amongst that which will soon be deleted. If you've sent
something to me, and still don't get a responce within the
next couple days, just send it again to firstname.lastname@example.org.
thing that I have failed to mention is my dice program.
Over the past couple years I've obtained a great interest
in RPGs. Role Playing Games, for those who don't know. Dungeons
& Dragons is probably the most popular example, although
I am not a fan of it. In fact my RPG of choice was "inspired"
by Dungeons & Dragons in an odd way: they couldn't stand
D&D. The RPG I play has rules based on reality, but
grounded in simplicity, and it has an awesome world. Unfortunately,
I can't say much more about it, since it has not yet been
published, but once it is, I'll say plenty more about it
here. Anyways, as I was saying at first, a while ago I made
a program (written in VB - blegh) for rolling dice of various
sides. You can download
it here. It has buttons for rolling 4-, 6-, 8-, 10-,
12-, 20-, and 100-sided dice. There's also a Coin button,
a box where you can pick a number, and it will roll a die
with that many side, and buttons for three 4-sideds, three
6-sideds, three 20-sideds, and three 100-sideds, and two
10-sideds (for rolling 100s). All the multiple dice buttons
also show the results added together, and the two 10-sided
button shows the combined value of 10s designed for rolling
hundreds (i.e. it could show you rolled a 70 and 2, and
and also shows 72). Unfortunately I had to write the program
in Visual Basic, since it's the only programming language
I could learn quickly, thanks to it's incredible lack of
flexibility and functionality, so it may not run right away
on your computer. If it does not work, you will need to
go to Microsoft's site and download the Visual Basic drivers.
Most people should have no problems though.
the movie Spirited
Away yesterday (not to be confused with Guy Ritchie's
Swept Away with Madonna), and it was incredible!
Some of the most incredible visuals I've ever seen, and
a great story, with wonderful characters! I know some people
won't want to see it just because it's animated, and America
has this stigma thinking that animation is only for kids,
and while this film may be appropriate for most children,
it is most certainly a film that will entertain an adult
audience. I can't endorse this movie enough, it just may
be my new absolute favorite movie. Unfortunately, since
it has already been in theaters a while, it will be leaving
them quite soon (today is the last day it shows at the theater
I saw it in), so I suggest you hurry, and see this marvel
before it leaves the big screen, as it is very much a movie
that should be seen in theaters. I leave you now with a

October 11th 2002
now officially a J.R.R.
Tolkien fanatic. So far I've completed The Hobbit, The
Lord of the Rings, and The Silmarillion, and am currently
reading The Book of Lost Tales 1 and 2. Although he is most
know for The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, I'd say that
The Silmarillion is what really got me hooked. Once I had
complete LotR I read the appendixes, and I realized that
Tolkien's world was much more complex, and much more vast
than I had first thought. Then I read The Silmarillion.
The Silmarillion made me realize that Tolkien's world was
much more complex, and much more vast than I had I thought
after reading the appendixes in LotR. One of the things
that really brought this home (besides the fact that there
are multiple fully developed languages, a ton of partially
developed ones, and many thousands of years of history)
was that at the end of The Silmarillion was a short section
titled "Of the Rings of Power and the Third Age".
Within this section the events from LotR took up a mere
3 pages of the 28 page section. That just three pages
out of just twenty-eight in a book that is 445 pages!
(or 366 if you don't count the appendixes, which I think
would be a bad idea) Knowing this I realized just how much
these histories could be expanded upon, and made in to books
of their own. Tolkien's World is indeed a grand work of
genius. And, of course, anything I begin to like as much
as this I feel I must contribute to somehow. Therefore,
I am working on making three
skins for the awesome web browser Opera.
The different skins will have the navigation icons display:
the Elven language of Quenya with the Elven Tengwar alphabet,
English in the Tengwar, and English in Rune Letters. I hope
to have these completed soon, and I shall post an update
once they are done.
news, there have been recent announcements of the discovery
of a third
moon orbiting Earth (that's right, third, not second),
around the Earth (like Saturn's, except this one is
a lot harder to see, obviously), and a tenth
planet in our solar system (with a strange name even
I can't pronounce). Y'know, I always thought we'd kinda
know these things by now.
news: If you like anime, go buy/watch Arjuna
(I believe the full title is Earth Girl Arjuna). It is awesome.
Sure, the cover kinda makes it look like some kind of Sailor
Moon knock-off, but trust me, it is not, and it's very
in anime news, there is an American
live-action remake of Akira being made. I am a big Akira
fan, so news of this desecration frightened me to begin
with, but then I heard they are going to make "a somewhat
more accessible story [to Western audiences]." Oh,
great, so they're going to remove the intelligence behind
it, and make it another cheap sci-fi action flick? Then
I heard that the director in charge is known for making
crappy movies, and I just want to kick Katsuhiro Otomo for
letting Hollywood bastardize his magnificent story. Ah well,
I suppose the original version of the movie already hasd
80% of the good stuff cut out from the original Manga, what
will another 19% hurt...? Ugh, stupid Americans.
of all Húrin stood alone. Then he cast aside his
shield, and wielded an axe two-handed; and it is sung that
the axe smoked in the black blood of the troll-gaurd of
Gothmog until it withered, and each time that he slew Húrin
cried: 'Aurë entuluva! Day shall come again!'
Seventy times he uttered that cry. - The Silmarillion, pg.

says it all: "...the MPAA and RIAA are asking that
they be allowed to perform what would otherwise be federal
and state criminal acts and civil torts, and you will have
essentially no remedy against them under any laws of the
United States." Click
here for the Slashdot article. I'm quickly losing what
faith I have left in my country, and people in general...
July 23th 2002
of you may already have heard this, but it's news to me,
and something which I feel I have to make a lot of noise
about. Microsoft, in cooperation with various hardware vendors,
has recently announced something they call Palladium
(TCPA) . What it boils down to is that in future versions
of windows you will be required to have a chip in your computer
called a Fritz chip. This chip will work with Windows to
verify that any and all software on your computer is legal.
Doesn't sound too bad, but it gets a lot worse. They also
would have the "right" to delete any "objectionable"
material they find on your computer. Even things such as
rantings about certain politicians. Not too mention they
could very easily block all competitor products.
They're also using it to target Linux, and the GPL movement
(and don't forget, there are many GPL products on Windows
- the majority of the software I use on my computer and
for web site design is under the GPL license). They target
it because they will make documents much more restricted.
For instance, your will no longer be able to read your word
documents in programs other than Microsoft Word (I personally
Word, a comparable, and completely free, word processor
that can read Word files). This means you also will not
be able to read these files on Linux systems, or other operating
systems. Also, companies will be able to make CDs that only
work for a few days, or only on your birthday. As it is
said in a FAQ
on TCPA/Palladium, "The possibilities seem to be
limited only by the
marketers' imagination." And let me assure you, THAT
IS A VERY BAD THING in itself (I've recently heard stories
of companies that want to put advertisements on people's
tombstones for example). There is much more to this horrorific
new idea, but I couldn't finish reading it before I had
to go blow off some steam. If you're interested, further
details on TSPA/Palladium are here.
July 14th 2002
it's been a while since I updated, so I figured I should
have a large update. So, I went about tweaking the design,
and made it a bit sleeker. I rather like it, don't you?
also recently done the site design for the Minnesota branch
Paramedical Services. If you work with a health insurance
company, go give APPS
some more business!
been big events in the gaming community recently: Neverwinter
Nights and Warcraft III, two of the most anticipated games
over the past couple years, have finally been released,
and in very close proximity to each other.
Nights is quite good, with a huge campaign to it. And
unlike Dungeon Siege, this one doesn't get mind-numbingly
boring. I am currently making a quest module for NWN, which
I will post here once it is complete. BioWare looks to be
very supportive of the quickly growing NWN community, and
already have all kinds of resources online for players,
DMs, quest- and mod-makers. I give NWN a 4 out of 5. Not
quite a "required buy", but very close. If you
were disappointed by Dungeon Siege, as I was, this may take
away some of that sour taste.
III is a Blizzard
game. Therefore it is excellent as a rule. It gets a 5 out
of 5, along with bonus points for being a new Warcraft game.
:D It has excellent gameplay, graphics, sound, music, voice
acting, and a great story. Every gamer should go buy this
if they already haven't. I personally pre-ordered the collectors
edition months ago.
May 10th 2002
back I heard news of Microsoft forcing 24 school districts
to go through a time-consuming and costly audit. This would
cost them around $100k. Anyone who knows anything about
the current state of educational funding, knows that it
is in horrible shape, and there is great need for more money
in education, not less. Fortunately, it's starting to look
like Microsoft shot themselves in the foot this time. Many
of the schools are looking at the possibility of abandoning
Microsoft in favor of the far cheaper Linux, as many schools
are already doing. Get the full story
at Slashdot. Is it just me, or does Microsoft seem to
hate education? Well, makes sense since all the more educated
techies despise Microsoft...
May 8th 2002
like RedHat is offering a kick-ass cheap deal for schools,
and Microsoft is restricting schools to an overly costly,
irrational deal. Get the story
at Slashdot. Time to go around to all the local schools
and tell them how to save a ton of money so they can actually
educate some children.
April 26th 2002
there was recently an obscenely stupid ruling in a court
case recently. The misinformed Judge Limbaugh made a ruling
for heightened enforcement of computer and video game ratings
restrictions. This in itself is not a bad thing. I'm all
for game ratings enforcement. The problem is that the ruling
was based on the absurd idea that video games are not speech,
and therefore not protected by the first amendment. I hope
Judge Limbaugh was looking to start a war, because he just
got one. If this beloved medium is regarded as not being
protected by the first amendment, it will be open to all
sorts of legal attacks, and could be of great harm to the
industry, and it's future. Not to mention that it's insulting
to the intelligence of gamers everywhere. Penny Arcade has
report of the situation. Read it, and make with the
letter sending. And remember this: sending angry letters
will only worsen the situation. Remain calm, and flood them
with mail in an orderly fashion...

April 2nd 2002
has been hearing about the steps the large entertainment
industry companies have been taking in recent years in order
to "protect their property." Now, with a recent
bill being pushed by many of the biggest players in the
entertainment industry, they're trying to make some of their
last steps to completely control what people are, and are
not, allowed to do with the things they purchase. It may
sound farfetched, but when you add everything up, it's obvious:
they really are trying to outlaw personal computers. As
Bruce Schneier explains it to Mike Godwin : If you
think about it, the entertainment industry does not want
people to have computers; theyre too powerful, too
flexible, and too extensible. They want people to have Internet
Entertainment Platforms: televisions, VCRs, game consoles,
I have one abrasive and unkindly declaration: F#ck them.

of topics today. First up, I have just revamped the web
site of David
Stoner & Co. LLC, a home building company in Connecticut.
Go check them out, if you're thinking of buying a home in
CT (the land where people consider 40 degrees a cold winter
day - sounds to me like record highs).
up, Microsoft is once again trying to openly bash the Unix/Linux
world. Before Linux was being called un-American (which
is absurd since Linux is based on the idea of "Of the
people, for the people, by the people", and Microsoft
is just the opposite), now they're calling Unix expensive.
FYI: Unix is free, and there are tons of free online support
groups to help with any technical problems. Sun Microsystems
responded by saying they still don't see Microsoft as a
threat to them, and "As for Unix being 'inflexible,'
'expensive,' and 'complex,' we feel those are terms much
better suited to the closed and proprietary world of Windows."
found out about this at Slashdot.
a new computer game out called Freedom
Force, which is absolutely great. It's a super-hero
game making fun of super hero stereo types. Not only is
the humor fantastic, but the gameplay is better than I had
dared to hope. Along with great graphics, sounds, music,
and some of the best multiplayer I've played in a long time,
this is a must for gamers and comic book nerds alike (me
being both of those).
anyone who is a fan of Gunnm (better known in America as
Battle Angel Alita), I urge you to lend your signature to

and there are so far no plans to have it translated in to

who would be doing the translation) to get to work. :) If
you're interested, I'm signature number 1063.
February 4th 2002
always told people that John Carmack is one of the most
influential people in 3D technology, and gaming. There is
a great article at Red Herring showing that I may have have
been off by a bit: it looks more like he is the single
most important person in 3D technology and gaming. When
you tally up his accomplishments, they really are fantastic.
I suggest anyone interested in 3D, gaming, FPS gaming, or
Id Software, check out this
article. Even those who are not that interested could
find it very interesting, considering what a huge influence
gaming has on today's culture.
Carmack is cool...

last post I spoke on the new game Dark
Age of Camelot. Well, that fad has already passed. I
think that MMORPG games are just not for me. [NOTE:
MMORPG = Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game]
Regardless of my thoughts on the genre, I am still predicting
that I'll be very addicted to the upcoming World
of Warcraft from everybody's favorite can't-go-wrong
Entertainment. I mean, seriously, the day Blizzard makes
a less than awesome game is the day I become the US president.
(Not that I would somehow cause them to make a bad game,
my disinterest with DAoC, my interest with Shattered
Galaxy is only growing... I am currently a top officer
and webmaster of the greatest, and maybe the largest regiment
on the most powerful planet. If you are a Shattered Galaxy
player interested in joining, check out the Join IC section
at the Ituron
Cavalry website for a rules listing. Right now we are
quite a large regiment, and unless you are a veteran player,
or high level, your chances of getting in are slim, but
feel free to contact us regardless. :)
those of you who are interested, college continues along.
Somewhere along the line I seem to have finished all the
technical courses before I met a challenge... Well, I suppose
there were those quiz questions about the bgsound and marquee
HTML elements, which no one should ever, ever use...
begun to further contemplate the idea of becoming a teacher,
instead of doing web design... sure, it's crap pay instead
of great pay, but it carries with it great personal rewards,
and the opportunity to show these youngster designers what
fools they've been designing solely for IE.
here it is broken down for those that think IE is as good
as it gets: Mozilla
is faster (both starting and loading sites), follows all
proper standards, so things are done as intended by the
World Wide Web Consortium, it has great features like ad-blocking,
pop-up blocking, a password manager, form auto-fills, and
MUCH better security than IE and Outlook. Last I heard viruses
were still 99% only for Microsoft Outlook. Mozilla is immune
to all these. Oh, and it's skinable too, a lot of people
like that. I haven't tried any besides the two that come
with it though, since besides the default, which makes it
look like Netscape 4.7, it has a great skin named "Modern."
Anyways, I'm gonna stop ranting about it before this post
gets any longer than the monster it already is...
November 30th 2001
now this is just rediculous. I thought these people went
to school, or were in some way educated? Well, apparently
not. Would you pay $10 a month for 30 MP3s that you couldn't
move anywhere ever? Lots of people these days have
MP3 players - can't copy it there. Maybe your other computer
has better speakers? - can't copy it there. Horrible computer
problems and you need to copy everything to a new computer
- whoops, not those MP3s, son. Man, these people are daft.
I'd say boycott, but there's no need for encouragement,
it has already begun. Check out this
article at ZDNet and read the poll at the end if you
don't believe me. I've been getting news from ZDNet (and
that fool David Coursey - don't believe anything nice he
says about Microsoft, people) for years now, and I've never
seen a poll have more than 70% of the votes for a single
option, until now with a landslide 92% in favor of ignoring
the music industry completely. Another 7% said they're not
in favor of the idea, and a pathetic 1% said they'd bother
Age of Camelot is the next Everquest. To all my pals
on the Bors server in Midgard: we really do rule, don't
we? Kill them Hibernians good.
October 25th 2001
my obsession with Shattered
Galaxy continues... Since my last post, the regiment
I was in, Vini Vidi Vici, often referred to as VVV, began
causing all sorts of political disruption, causing heavy
opposition to our current Overlord, and eventually putting
him out of office (though not before he disbanded our regiment),
but when we tried to put our old regiment leader in office,
he withdrew from the race for whatever reason, and said
to vote for a friend of his, but he didn't win. The guy
who one ended up being disliked so much that he was kicked
out of Overlord within a couple days, and the old Overlord
came back, and we knew our regiment was done for. A couple
of us decided to stay in Talis, but most pledged loyalty
to other factions, the most, by far, was to Ituron, where
I went. Before leaving I heard that there was a regiment
named Ituron Cavalry that was run by a cool guy, who was
a veteran of Thoth, so my friends and I joined their regiment.
Since then I have become good friends with our leader, and
our regiment has become one of the largest and most well
known in the galaxy. When the overlord in power was about
to end his term, not interested in reelection, our leader,
Jeslek, ran for Overlord. I was close, but he won due to
those who have met him in Ituron, and those who remember
his reign as a Thoth Overlord. He has only been Overlord
of Ituron for a couple days when something happens. In recent
News Feeds there have been mentions of a weapons company
named Grimwell, where the executives were found brutaly
murdered, and a company named Terminus took over. All weapons
sold under the Grimwell name were renamed to Terminus. Rumors
began to spread of Terminus doing unsafe testing on humans
resulting in disfigurement, mutations, and death. Ituron
was the only faction supporting Terminus at all, and they
were forced, under armed guard, out of the other factions,
and in to ours. Then they suddenly took over the faction.
I'm not sure how that happened, but on the map we now appear
as Terminus, instead of Ituron. How this will effect Jeslek's
rule, I don't know, since I haven't had the chance to talk
to him, but he still appears to be listed as our Overlord.
I'm not sure what's going to happen to our regiment, since
it is name Ituron Cavalry, and not Terminus Calavry.
We may rename, or maybe we'll keep the Ituron in our name
to remember our roots. We'll see... But in the mean-time
put up a site for our regiment here. Some think this
is all leading to a war, which is quite possible. We shall
see where this path leads...
September 8th 2001
where to begin... Well, in my last real news post (on June
19th :) I was looking forward to the expansion to Diablo
2. I have since gotten, played it for hours on end, seen
just about everything in it, and I now have a new game which
I am really in to: Shattered
Galaxy. The graphics may not be impressive, in fact
I think they downright suck, but the game is a hell
of a lot of fun! Imagine this, if you will, or can: The
squad-based strategy and customization abilities of Fallout:
Tactics, combined with Starcraft-like
units, a Diablo-like
hero system, add a government and politics (which users
do not have to participate in), and make it massively multiplayer
(meaning that thousands of users will be in the same game
world), and you've got the kick-ass Shattered
Galaxy! If you get it, you'll be able to recognize me
as the guy named CheesePony, telling people "Your kung
fu is weak, and your mother dresses you funny!" Just
remember this phrase when you see the graphics: "Bad
graphics won't hurt a good game, and good graphics won't
save a bad one." Also on the topic of Shattered Galaxy,
you may want to take a look at my listing
of how much clout you need to access certain high level
units. I'm personally going with 20 clout, because I
accidentally went as high as 18.
put two songs in my music section finally! Those who were
looking forward to some new music from me, finally got it.
more note on games and their graphics: Max
Payne seems to have mastered the art of kicking total
ass, while looking as good as it gets!
August 20th 2001
I haven't updated since July 19th... Well, this isn't much
of an update, I just wanted to post something to force me
to do an update soon, when I'll be adding some of my latest
in poorly fabricated pseudo music (veterans of my site will
note that that was the name of my first pseudo album :)
soon: "Definately Not Sci-Fi" and "Doing
It All Again", two great tastes that taste great together!

June 5th 2001
got back from Connecticut, where I redesigned the site for
Spring and Stamping. I think it turned out rather well.
The coolest aspect of it is the dynamic ASP database thingy
we put in. I'm going to have to look in to that ASP stuff
more. On another, I have to give m4d pr0ps to Mozilla, for
being basically Netscape 6+. It does everything that Netscape
6 does, slightly faster, and has cool options like "Accept
image that come from the originating server only."
Mozilla seems to be the true Netscape, since they got bought
by AOL, and were forced to include ads for AOL (shudder).

finished college for the summer, and while things didn't
work out perfectly (what does?), I'd say it went rather
well. On a more important note: go call up an old friend!
I'm not kidding. Go do it, you won't regret it!
May 14th 2001
got a snail mail from Netscape
saying that I won a minor (not first or grand :P ) prize
in their Netscape 6stakes! contest. Neat. It's just
a bunch of free subscriptions to magazines, but they're
good ones like Time and Entertainment Weekly.
on the recent minor changes: The site only works exactly
as I want it to on the Home page (this page), and the Old
News page. The rest are kinda half-and-half, due to a few
technical issues, and a busy schedule. Reminder: the improvements
only look right on Netscape
6, or Mozilla
May 10th 2001
added some enhanced CSS coding for people browsing with
IE and Netscape
6. Some of it only works in Netscape 6. All of you people
who say IE has more support for technologies (specifically
CSS), are now officially proved wrong.
of using CSS to bring my site out of the dark ages, I have
added a "Best viewed with Netscape 6" button on
the bottom that I quick whipped up. It seems bit to
be and intrusive for me, though, so I'll have to refine
it. I'm also somewhat worried that the CSS enhancements
will make my page lose some of it's level of simplicity,
which I like so much. We shall see in time...
Start is now available online. I will add the downloadable
version, as soon as I get around to making an installation
for the new version...
you believe that although I'm adding enhancements for NS
6, I still haven't gotten around to leaving NS 4.77? :)

Over this past weekend, my mother flew to Cancun, my friend
Lactose the Intolerant (whom I am making the DSDOP mod with)
flew to Phoenix, and I took a long car drive to Wisconsin
for a funeral. Joy. Well, fortunately, it was not actually
a sad funeral, but one of joy, remembering the wondrous
and uplifting person that William Lemke was... Here's to
you, Bill, wherever you may be...
see you in the future,
