I am not a big fan of polls. I think we don't need them, we will find out soon enough.
I did and do feel Clinton was way to much into polls etc, I don't see anyone doing that lately.
ThisRepublican upset with zogby polls.
They show only a 1 point lead by Bush.

WFA afterthoughts @Monday, October 30, 2000 - 13:39:16 - tu
I don't want anyone to get the impression I am some kind of quake god. I am a good player on
an ok machine with a poor internet connection. I get killed and my score averages somewhere
in the middle most of the time on the level scores. Scores don't really match up very well in
WFA, its based on the Q3 source code, they can't do much until Id releases more info on it.
I have been considering a second line and modem, shotgunning two 56k modems, my ping
time and downloads would improve greatly, I don't need a T1 connection, and I am sure that
would not be a good thing for me. I play, I have fun, I would like to not screw up something
for my team and have the most flag captures. The craziest thing is how wound up my brain
gets thinking of a dozen plus things during game. I need a few hours to turn off all brain
chemistry, its like drinking 2 cups of coffee.

Lunch @Monday, October 30, 2000 - 13:23:44 - tu
Listening to my XTC CD collection, 148 songs from 10 albums.
That doesn't count 2 of their earlier CDs I have that I don't care for asmuch. I can remember
picking up my first 2 XTC cds at a the Unversity of Maine in a used CD rack. I consider them
my favorite band, I enjoy the music, and I really love the lyrics in the song. I was so excited
to see them put out Apple Venus then Wasp Star.
Chalkhills is the best XTC site I know of.

It's all about team work baby. I played the assassin first time for an extend period of time.
Very cool, snuck up on 2 players and knifed em dead. very good for scouting too.
Flew around as recon too, very cool stuff. I played arial bomber and blasted a bunch
of people and even a sentry gun. I like to look for holes in my team and fill them. I
pretty much suck as a cyborg, I dunno more practice I guess. I did a great job
defending the flag as a marine and flamer. Didn't play the nurse even once tonight.
The teams had other holes that need filing. The last server I played on was I-Sucks
owned by tumorhead. port 27960. I played 3 maps I haven't played yet
in the new 2.0 version. I hate snipers, and I suck as a sniper, but then I have seen
some sucky snipers. I love the servers with 14-or 15 on each side, especially when
they go into overtime. Nothing pisses me off more than a team of weenies who won't
stay and defend the flag.
I dunno what happened to Mr. Sniper. I am glad though.
I hate'em campers with fast ping times that hide in the shadows.

Snow. We have a couple of inches of snow up here in Maine. My folks live about a
half hour north, they could get up the six inches. The is crazy stuff.

My computer has been acting wacky, I removed and reinstalled communications.
That fixed a problem I was having with my TCP/IP Dailup. I turned off the machine
and turned it back on. The machine was doing the memory count and stopped at
640k. Damn, Damn, Damn. I took out and reset the 2 168 dimm chips. No joy, so
I swapped out one chip then the other in the memory slots. It worked!!!!
So one of my 64 meg chips is DOA, I think it is still under warranty I think I have
only hadit for like 6 months or so. I wonder if quake it playable on 64?
I unplugged everything both chips are now work, possibly a flakey motherboard? I really do hate this piece of crap FIC/VIA AT Motherboard. ATX next time, probably Asus / Athlon/Duron.

Bush on Heaven and Hell @Wednesday, October 25, 2000 - 21:17:53 - tu
Someone was concerned that I am fudging on Bush's personal beliefs who goto hell .
Here are a dozen or so articles about Bush his religion and people going to heaven or hell.

Bush on Heaven and Jews
Can Jews get into heaven ?
Slate article Go to Hell The Gospel according to George W.
Bush tried to clarify his stand on Jews, heaven
Salon article God is their Co-Pilot
Another slat article on Bush and his views comparing them to lieberman.

This Articles is the story I read somewhere else.
One doctrine of which Bush is certain is that heaven is open only to those who accept Jesus Christ He recalled discussing the topic with his mother, former first lady Barbara Bush, who disagreed and called The Rev. Billy Graham, a family friend.
"Billy came on the line and ... said, 'Look, I happen to agree with what George says about the interpretation of the New Testament, but I want to remind both of you to never play God,' " said Bush Bush retains his belief that non-Christians cannot go to heaven, but it is merely a "personal opinion."

Graham saved Bush in Maine.
People have alot of concern about the secret group he joined at college.
Skulls in the Closet

Found an old article on GW trying to shutdown an anti Bush site.
His famous quote There ought to be limits to freedom

Another old one. An odd quote from GW.

I gotta dig up that GW Bush story I think it was a salon about people going to hell or
being saved by jesus.

finished another Heinlein. I am down to one unread book of his. Farnham's Freehold is just
another one of those books that makes you think. I still think its the human realtionships that
heinlein portrays that really drive his stories. I have only read one of his books I would consider a poor read. I don't know alot people that read alot anymore, it was something I picked up from my parents. They would read to me and my brother, my dad would read to us in the morning while waiting for the bus in our old blue van. I remember a few teachers doing that my fifth grade teacher, very old school, read to us sung around the piano, its funny what I can remember from being a kid. I remember going on a trip in first grade to the Peabody Museum.
I remember a giant turtle fossil missing a foot. I was hooked on dinosaurs etc for a couple years. That and Star Wars. I also remember being bored or uninterested in most things going on the classrooms.

Yeah I know I have been going on and on about Quake 3 Weapons Arena Factory.
I can't help it, but I have played it enough so I don't feel like I need to be playing it
every waking minute. Last night I was the arsonist, I had my flamethrower and
went up and the enemy flamer guy, we somehow did ended up kiling each other
at the very same time. I played the engineer for awhile, scored alot of easy kills
with the sentry cannon. I didn't get alot of cyborg attacks. The Cannoneer with
a sentry can really defend a base but, base denfense needs 2 or 3 people.

WFA Madness @Wednesday, October 18, 2000 - 15:12:24 - tu
I played some WFA over lunch. I found on one map if your careful you can dominate a large area as a marine with homing missiles turned on. Most of the enemies were is a mad rush to get our flag. The other My machine here isn't a fast on the video so the h oming missiles came in handy. Those flying witches can't outrun a homing missile. Over defending around the flag lead to cyborg What else have I learned? not much as much teaming up as there should be. Fire teams would be good 2 people going up against a sentry etc... Oh yeah if your a flamer you can backsplash yourself on a wall and toast yourself. Nurses can be very effective infecting the enemy, very under used. I need to polish up on my grappling and work on assigning my keys better. for some reason my keyboard changes aren't saved, very annoying. Version 2.0 should be out this saturday, the beta is floating around on a couple servers.

Debate thoughts - ramblings.. @Wednesday, October 18, 2000 - 01:35:29 - tu
I didn't watch it live, I watched the cspan coverage later. (WFA-ing like a lunatic.)
The first thing was they say the same things over in over, we should just call the undecided
the moron voters, I doubt they will even vote. If people can't make up their mind yet,
they probably have to have other people pick out their underwear for them and give
their meds.

I was glad to see someone else who asked Bush thought he looked awful proud about
putting the 3 men to death. I thought Al Gore was extremely sharp, Bush seemed bored
and vacant when he wasn't speaking, but the camera was still on him. Gore played with
his hair a few times, but bush kept snorting on nostril and blinking. Bush would not stand
still, the split screen even when he was talking he just kept moving and hopping around.
It was funny Gore would agree would something bush said and he would mouth yes or
nodd, Bush when not speaking would pretend to take a note, a 1 or 2 second note, I
think he was just doodling.
I get the feeling Bush isn't really doing this out of civic pride, I do the election clerk thing
I can't say I love it but its a job that needs doing in the government. From what I understand
the Republican looked around and decided bush jr. would be their choice. People who spend
lives working in government aren't evil and wanting to do that for a long time shouldn't be a
penality. Bush into the Air National guard under questionable circumstances, I have read and
have links on it. He was a rich boy he got into a safe spot. He went to an Ivy League school
and got below average grades. I wonder how Bush can say with a strait face that Saddam
Hussien is still a threat, Hello?? whose daddy left him in power? Who also turned his back
on the Iraqi resistance after promising them help? This of course was a country (Iraq) we gave training and money to fight help destory Iran. The funny thing is Iran has had real elections and the people supported in Iraq are still in power.

The thing I think is the scariest is Bush could change the face of the Supreme Court for the
rest of my life. Abortion, Seperation of Church and State,
Unreasonable Search and Sesiure etc.. Evolution.

Bush is a very Christan man, to him if you don't believe in the savior Jesus Christ
then you are damned to hell. Doesn't matter to him if you we a good person, Gandi,
Jewish, etc.. I'd don't want to live in a world like that, it doesn't sound like a way to
unite people. Luckily the Athiest in me doesn't fall for that crap, but I don't think
its a good way to look at other people different from yourself.

I was playing Weapons Factory Arena (WFA) again last night. I tried a bunch of different players and I think I am getting the hang of it. I noticed that my 300ms ping as a sniper verse a 30-40ms ping sniper aint gonna cut it. I even got knifed by an assassin once. The flamethrower / marine are pretty decent plus their weapons are good if you have poor ping time. I really haven't seen alot of team work, but when I have that team kicks butt. I had fun with the freezegun teamed up with a sniper, very funny freeze some guy and have the sniper blow them away.

I was walking to work this morning, like I always do. I was walking on the sidewalk crossing a side road were they are doing construction. All of a sudden I realize this vechile was only a couple feet away from me trying to go down this side street. You m ight think the thought of turning into road pizza would ruin my day, but it didn't. I am pretty sure it was an MBNA construction type guy.
The worse thing that happened to me on Friday the 13th was I saw my Ex in the Walmart parkinglot (no big deal really). I am not much for superstitions, religions or stuff like that.
I played the Quake 3 mod Weapons Factory Arena this weekend. I played the darn thing for like 9-10 hours. There are multiple classes of players. Marine, Flamer, Cyborg, Nurse, Engineer etc.. I had alot of fun infecting and burning my enemies, with the nurse and the flamer. The marine has this very cool Hyperblaster, the cannoneer has a kickbutt chaingun/cannon. This mod is for the capture the flag (CTF) type game. You really need like 12-16 peo ple to play a decent game. I was playing on the barrysworld server yesterday.

Just thought I would vent some thoughts on the debate.
Bush mixed up facts kill 3 or 2 (its all the same.)
And no we don't have troops in Hati. Granted Gore missed a few too. I was amazing at the proudness/attitude Bush showed when he talked those 3 (oopys 2) people who were going to be put to death. I dunno, I don't think a govonor can take alot of credit for something like that or at least be that proud of it. His attitude on it was very erie. He didn't go near the Mathew Shepard case when gore brought it up. I am glad Bush set the Gay thing strait. Keep it a secret at work and Marriage is only for god fearing christian types. I know Cheney freaked out way to many religous right types. I found it hard to beleive Bush could say with a strait face there is no such thing as global warming. Ozone holes, Open water on the North Pole, People in Chili cant go outside. Hello?? Bush try to side stepping the air quality and health care problems of Texas, Al didn't let it drop. The other thing he was doing the Buchanan thing. He said we should ony care about Europe and Oil Land and our Hemisphere. Screw Asia, Africa South America etc.. you not important. The other thing I thought was funny, Bush said was the price of a gun won't effect a kid buying it. Hello? Cheap guns, Kids aren't gonna be able to afford glocks or Desert Eagles. They are gonna buy the cheapest thing that can throw lead at someone else.
Oh by the way my heart didn't turn black from the internet (I didn't get it till four years later) .
It was the 4 years of social abuses sometimes called high school. The internet has

Bushisms, Etc.. @Tuesday, October 10, 2000 - 17:30:58 - tu
Another Bushism - A tough one - Why vote for Bush.
Bush made several attempts at a response.
First, he said, "Tell her to keep an open mind." Then he said,
"No, tell her governments don't create wealth."
Attempt No. 3: "Here's what I'd tell her - fella's got a pretty
good record and he's done in office what he said he would."
By then, Bush was visibly struggling, and tried to make light of it.
"I'm groping for the right answer, you can tell,"
he said good-naturedly. VCR Repair Help

Some more Bushism's @Monday, October 9, 2000 - 21:02:38 - tu
Gore's people go after Bush's Fumbling
The guy really does have a hard time completing a sentence that makes sense.

"use our technology to enhance uncertainty abroad,"
promised "to be a president who hails success as well as failure"
and pledged to "feed faces all across the world."

"When I was young and coming up, it was a dangerous world and we knew exactly who the ‘they’ were," he told a puzzled group of voters in Council Bluffs, Iowa. "It was us vs. them and it was clear who ‘them’ was. Today, we’re not so sure who the ‘they’ are, but we know they’re there."

incorrectly identified citizens of Greece as "Grecians"
and people from Kosovo as "Kosovarians."

He can't pronounce Milosevic he has said "Milosevick'' and "Milosevix."

I was talking to someone today, trying to describe this site. It sorta defines descriptions really.
I suppose it is first a Weblog, but I don't do alot of personal venting. I think maybe it like my

I ordered a DVD and CD from Amazon on 08-30-00. I got concerned a week ago when it
didn't arrive. My check was cashed on the 14th of sept. I got 2 seperate responses
1. the movie listed as avialable wasn't even out yet. They thought it might be out by oct 3rd.
2. They said they have two accounts with my email address?
They put the payment in the one without an order open.
I have noticed the older I get the less patient I am for things.

MR. LEHRER: New question on Social Security. Both of you have Social Security
reform plans, and we could spend the rest of the evening and two or three other evenings
talking about them in detail.
MR. LEHRER: We're not going to do that, but -- (laughter) --

Boring Debate @Tuesday, October 3, 2000 - 23:35:49 - tu
If the Monkeyfist Collective ran the presidential debates
These are some way out there questions that neither canidate will probably ever answer.

I am really bored of hearing about some lady that has to pick up cans and drives a winabaygo. I am really glad the other guy cried with some family in a natural disater. Did he invite him home? no. Did the other guy pick up can with the poor lady? I thought Bush's jokes seemed canned. What are fuzy numbers? I thought it was pretty funny when Jim said I think you could both go on about this for three or four more nights Gore jumped in and addlibbed I'm willing to do that. Even Jim Lehrer cracked up on that. That was about the only unscripted thing all night. On serious stuff, these guys have very differant ideas on several issues. I can't imagine someone not having decided on those issues.

Heinlein @Tuesday, October 3, 2000 - 16:20:20 - tu
Just finished Stranger in a Strangeland last night (around 1:30 uggh). It was a very strange book, alot more out their than many of Heinliens other books. It must be the 8 or 9th of his I have read. I enjoy his books for the sci fi aspect but also the human interaction. Real people in extrodinary situations. They are not heavy reading and thats not always a bad thing something light and quick to read. I really enjoyed the collection of short stories in a couple different books. I only have one more of his books left unread. I shall have to hit the used book stores
