Spam Problem
FYI, I'm on LJ several times a day, every day, and would like to volunteer my services as Wielder of Banhammer for the recent plague of spam, if I could be granted Maintainer status. :)

SO SAY WE ALL!


Damn Edward "Admiral Adama" James Olmos is a wise man!

His character rocks, but damn, in terms of character awesomeness to real person awesomeness ratio, Shatner has nothing on Olmos!

Dating and Video Games?
http://www.escapistmagazine.com/articles/view/issues/issue_188/5738-The-Dating-Game

The link above leads to an article on The Escapist about including video games in dating.  Since we're all geeks here, I'm just wondering what everyone's thoughts are of the prospect.  Are we for it?  Against it?  Don't think it would ever work out?  Personally, I'd love to see it made possible someday.

New person much?
I have not seen any posts to this community, but i thought i would drop in and introduce myself.

As a guy who is partial to the higher educated and possibly less social women i have to say i fit in nicely here. Unfortunately I too am a geek/nerd and so also suffer from the same dilemma of not being able to find people that are interested in the same things i am.

My interest center around the present day geeky stuff. My job has to do with computers heavily. My favorite past time is Magic the trading card game. I Love Anime and Manga Almost as much as Sci-fi and Fantasy Novels. I am very proper and don't like drinking or going out to bars or dancing.

The only things that are not geeky about me would be that I can come across as normal, or slightly the rebel for a time. And I do like to get out of the house, and I am not horribly unhealthy. Besides that though... yeah totally a geek. I void warranties on a slightly more then regular basis. And those things tend to work better afterwords ;)

DS Emulators (as in *on* the NDS, not on the PC)
Hey everyone - long time since I've posted here, but it's with a question that's baffling me.

I know console/other emulators exist for the PC, but with the Nintendo DS (which I own), how exactly do you go about homebrew software emulators and the like? As far as I know you can get blank flash cards (or some equivalent) for Slot-1 (the DS game port), and sometimes a cart to expand space for Slot-2 (the GBA cart port).

I've looked at both SCUMMVM DS and other interesting emulators, and the only trouble seems to be an easier way to get them running.
(The instructions partly make sense. Guess I'm not as technical minded as I thought.)

As for legalities, anything I plan to run (for instance, SCUMM related games) I own, so this isn't piracy, more on the go ability that goes past DS and GBA games. 1994's Sam and Max rocks, being able to kill time on the bus with it'd be awesome.

If anyone could help break through the multiple devices these use, that'd be great. :)

EDIT: To add, I've seen the SCUMMVM site has instructions, but has anyone here tried installing it, or any other hardware for homebrew software? With so many different products to use for these things (as seen in the SCUMMVM instructions), which hardware/software tends to work best for the original DS?
(I'm using an original 2004 DS, as seen in my icon, so that'd be the one worked on, naturally.)

Red Alert: Urgent assistance required!
Urgent help needed combatting spyware/virii that keep opening/redirecting fucking Microsoft I.E to spy-shredder.com and "ultimate defender" websites, along with pop-up boxes and replaced wallpaper that seems to be active as an Internet page picture.

ANY help is welcome! Be it known programs that can kill this to how to kill it manually in regedit!

Symantec and Ad aware have NO idea what it is, but it keeps multiplying at an annoying rate, OFTEN.

I swear, last time I let anyone on my PC ever again...

Hell, even a line for regedit to stop IE ever opening would be brilliant!
(Never use it anyway - this is WHY.)

(I know this isn't a helpdesk, but usually fellow computer geeks are more helpful/useful.)

UPDATE: All is calm again, resume Aqua Alert. (As in "All is well...")

Why geeks are more attentive
I've seen several of those "why geeks are better lovers/boyfriends/significant other" articles the last couple of days. StumbleUpon just handed me another. And there's something that keeps bothering me.

Due again to their neglected status, they’re more attentive than guys who “have more options”.

Wait. What? Something about that -- several things, actually -- doesn't ring true.
Argument OneCollapse )
But that's not my most important point.
Argument TwoCollapse )
Geeks are wired to absorb information and act on it. We might not always interpret it correctly. We might even discard the wrong information, and seem like we're ignoring you. And there will sometimes be an edge of desperateness to our attentiveness. But, let's face it. What guy isn't desperate from time to time?

LUG
Because none of my "normal" friends care, I figured I'd post it here and maybe someone in this community will share in my happiness...

I was elected Vice President of my university's Linux User's Group. :)

[NEWS] "V" For Vox Populi
Remember, remember, the *Sixth* of November...


“V” Meets The Secret Service

On Monday, November 6, 2006, “V” visited security check points at the White House, the main Treasury, IRS and Justice Department Buildings and the Capitol.

“V’s” purpose was to deliver the People’s Petitions for Redress of Grievances relating to the Government’s violations of the war powers, tax, privacy and money clauses of the Constitution, and to inform key Government officials that at least 100 more “Vs” would be at their doorstep on November 14th expecting a response to the Petitions.

When an agent asked if “V” would remove his mask for identification purposes, “V” explained that would defeat the very purpose of the mask, which was to give expression to the fact that the nation was becoming a police state, that too many people were becoming afraid to be identified as dissenters or protestors, and that this was not in the long term interest of a free people. The agents accepted the veracity of “V’s” message and refrained from veering “V” from his vanguard visit as the vox populi.

The most disturbing part of “V’s” interaction with the law enforcement authorities at DOJ occurred when the Homeland Security agent in charge asked “V” what was the purpose behind “V’s” presence at DOJ. “V” began to explain the First Amendment freedoms and the Right to Petition. Almost immediately the agent said, in effect, “You’re pulling my leg. You are trying to pull a fast one. I’m not falling for the garbage. I don’t want to hear it.”

All local and federal law enforcement agencies in DC now know the purpose of these events is to show peaceful support for the First Amendment Right to Petition Government for Redress of Grievances and to give expression to the fact that too many Americans are beginning to fear the Government and that that is unhealthy to the longevity of a free people and our Republic.</a>

All participants are asked to arrive at Lafayette Park between 11 and 11:30 am on the 14th.



This looks like a fun story to watch!
(Also, bear in mind that the above paragraphs are a quick snippet - the article is LONGER.)

If you're in the DC area and have a spare V outfit, GO FOR IT! :D

mm . . . geekdom
Someone has probably beat me to thinking of this, but with phones now having songs as ring tones, why not the gregorian style chant that is sung when they get the holy hand gernade in Monty Python and the Holy Grail? I wish my phone could spport such such a ring tone, but it is still in the days of midi . . .

The Funny Side Of North Korea's Weaponry.
I read:

"Pyongyang may be preparing to test-fire a long-range Taepodong-2 ballistic missile."

And my first thoughts were:

SO sounds like "Type o'dong!" (certainly a LONG one!)
Or the sound of the missile being rubber band launched and impact.
*Tae-PO-dong!*.......*TWO!*

To fill the gap between rewatching old Futurama and new Futurama for the time being, This is a trailer for Al Gore's film, An Inconvenient Truth.

(And yes, Billy West and John DiMaggio helped him, as did Matt Groening, David X Cohen, Richard Sakai and the team at Rough Draft, the animators behind Futurama itself.)
