Norton Guides Mirror! - I put up a mirror of the on-line norton guides. There is only one other site I could find with this information on it so I figured there should be a backup somewhere. (With permission of course.) Norton guides are perfect for finding answers to questions about ASM, PHP, C/C++, and many other topics. Most are programming related but the information in them is a lifetime of programming skills. Check them out here

Okay, been a while since I posted and to much happened for me to write so I will just tell you about this little project I have started. I am taking my old pc (here), and modding it. I just recently upgraded it to a new intel D850DM motherboard, a 2Ghz P4, 512mb Rambus ram and a GeForce3 ti500 card from asus(messy in there). Well I decided that all this new stuff deserved a better case. So I got one of those Lian-Li PC65USB cases(here). I am gonna get some EL Glow wire, and some pretty cool mods for it, and I thought everyone would like to see the progress. I am waiting on my power supply so I can start.

Oh I also noticed on the box the case came in that it includes "Two Balls Bearing FAN" (check it)thought that was funny.

More to come as I work on it.. stay tuned!

to be continued.

now it is done.
this time she has won.
second to none.
time has the gun.

still smoking when you die.
this is the way you fly.
up where we are free.
where i am you.,
and you are me.

at one with so many around.
why does it seem to bring me down.
sitting here once asked for this dance.
how can it pretend to be just a glance.

is it how i am hopeless in you?
is this how you are in him to?

Here is something off the top of my head..

said to you,
you know it is true.
that is why you wont ever,
stop being blue.

because it is with you now,
this pain of the ages.
so with you it will die,
as it does in all wizards and sages.

but one benefit i see
from these bad times
is wisdom for you,
and power divine..

for in your heart now,
all the pain and despair.
will come together to make
you much stronger there.

Some poems for you.


once again I look to her.
once again I think of what we were.

once again I have no fear.
once again she pulls me near.

once again we fall apart.
once again it broke my heart.

once again she is not mine.
once again or for all of time?



yes its true.
i know its in you.
but maybe not in me.
becausae I have yet to see.
what do you do to make it this way.
tell me what else can I do or possibly say.



there is the way you say to me I will.
there is the way I listen still.

but how are you the one i see
when you dont even show up for me.

why do I think of this love with you.
what is it you will make me do.

lets make it tonight love
the ocean holds us to the land.

let us take this night love
let me hold you with my hand.

how can you do this for me.
and why does it touch me so much to see.

when you are here tonight love.
you will not be the same.

when you come along with me
to where we are truely free.

so let us be this night love.
two parts of one soul.

now we come together.
now we become whole.

Well it is now 4:30 am. Just got around to writing now. We got there around 1:30am. Started prepping power, the router, and the rack for the move. When everything was prepped we powered down the 7507, and removed it from the rack along with its UPS. We then upgraded the power to handle the bigger routers power supplies, and put the new router and UPS in the rack. It was a very snug fit, we could not have planned it better. This part took maybe 10 minutes. The long part was connecting everything to the new router and creating the config. It seems if you run cisco's 'setup' command on the router when it has no cards in it to test it out it adds a line' no ip routing' to the config. This line disables all routing in the router. No one had ever seen this comand before. It seemed almost idiotical to have a router that doesnt route, but there it was staring us in the face 35 minutes into the job. We did away with that line which wasted 20 minutes of our time (thanks cisco), and traffic began to pump through again. We had everything back up and running in just under one hour. Not bad, but we could have done better. Next time we will examine the config more closley when there is one there already.

Well thats the update. I'm going to bed now. nighty night.

Well it is almost time to do some late night networking again. This time we are replacing our cisco 7507 router with a 7513 monster. Everything should go smoothly. I'll write after we are done at let you know how it went.

Last night I went to a party at a friends house... and as usual, good people, good fun... until I lost my cell phone. I must have dropped it when we went for a beer run. I couldn't find it when we were leaving so I left and went home hoping someone would find it. but then I just couldn't sit still without it.... my phone is like a part of me... I cant seem to survive without it.... so what did I do? well... at about 3am I went back.. and I'm glad I did.. no one would have found it where it was... I searched a pile of leaves where we had parked after we went and got beer.. and there it was.. wee!

in other news...

I also got a memory card for my gamecube yesterday! I called a local game store and the guy there said they had just gotten a shipment in and for me to call back in about 2 hours after they had unpacked to see if any came in. I called back and they did! I raced there and got it. So now I am able to save games. WOO!

in a related story...

I am very close to beating luigis mansion for the gamecube.. here are some hints for those who may have just gotten it...

always go back to rooms you have been to before that have vases and lights, these usually give you hearts or coins. So if you are about to fight a boss go get filled up first.

you can look in any mirror with your game boy horror and hit A and it will warp you back to the main entrance.

vacuum and touch everything... water every plant you see.. light every candle...

these three tips alone I think will help most people get very far in the game.

thats all for now..

Well yesterday was thanksgiving and I ate so much I think I am still full.I had a good time hanging with some of my friends although I wish my other friends were there too. Oh well, you cant be everywhere at once.

I had written a post before I left to go eat yesterday but somehow it was lost.Most of yesterdays post was regarding toy/gaming stores and how they only ordered as many memory cards for the game cube as they ordered gamecubes. So what happens? They sell out of memory cards because people buy 2 and 3 of them with their gamecubes.So I go and buy a gamecube and now have to wait up to a week for a memory card so I can actually save a game. This same thing happened with the dreamcast when it came out. You would think they would have learned their lesson.

Apparently not.

Oh well, I will have a card soon so it isn't that major of a deal. Just something for all you store managers to think about for next time.

hmm.. cant think of anything else to talk about right now..
more later..

It has been a bit since I last posted but don't take that as nothing has happened.

There is so much to tell.

First of all I found an old friend. This made me happy. I was worried that this friend had maybe gone for good. We talked most of friday night into sat morning. It was good.

Then after some sleep I went out with some friends on sat night. We stayed out pretty late so I slept into the afternoon sunday when nomikon called me. I didn't notice at first but to my surprise I was wearing pants that didn't seem to be mine. Pants that were a different size then me as they were very small on me. I pondered upon this and assumed my friends would be able to shed some light on it. They said I was "fine" when they had dropped me off at my house. I assume fine to them means, "you will wake up wearing someone else's pants", and this is somehow normal for them. Anyway I found that the pants were an old pair of mine that was in this old clothes place in the basement where we keep old clothes for goodwill/family etc.. How or why I decided to put them on and go to bed I will never know.

So now it was sunday and nomikon picked me up to help her do some things. On our way we were going to stop and get something to drink when we see this motorcycle laying in the road and a police car parked with its lights on. There was a man laying in the road too. He wasn't moving but it looked as if the police officer was talking to him so maybe he was okay. i hope so. so we get our drinks and continue on our journey.. we picked up sheena (Dave Browns Girlfriend) and went to lunch. That was when I had a flood of poetry come to me and no place to put it. I tried to frantically type it into my pager and got some of it which I have to sort out later and finish, but the majority of it faded away like some dream. I wonder why that happens. Its almost as if I know everything for a brief moment and then it goes away. This is when my best poetry comes out. It has been a while since this happened last but I hope it happens again soon. Only this time I hope I can at least get out a full poem.

We get done lunch and go back to nomikons' Grand pops house where we tried to get the cable modem working to no avail, thats okay though as it wasn't supposed to be working yet. A little later nomikons girl and dave brown came over. we had some food, and discussed a new business venture we are all going to start working on, then watched a movie. nomikon took me home and i didn't wake up wearing someone elses pants again monday so I think thats a good start to the week.

Monday was pretty uneventful.

Today I worked alone in the office most of the day as no one showed up except our secretary, and she didn't get here to 5pm, then left at 6pm. heh. I love this job. =]

More later..

Here is something I just wrote off the top of my head because I promised poems. I will have some good stuff when I feel it come out again or I get my laptop hard drives info extracted...
this one i will call... umm...

old feelings

i feel her.
the way she feels tonight.
i don't know why i can feel her,
but something's not right.

she has powerful feelings,
and we hurt sometimes together.
wish i could be so sure,
that this hurt wont last forever.

she called me tonight,
and again my life is real.
i find it very hard to put words,
on exactly how this feels.

though i know deep inside,
it can never truly be.
i still imagine to myself,
that one day she will see.

that day we will be happy,
when she finally searches for me.
and makes me into that man,
she now thinks I can never be.

was out with friends most of the night... so no poetry tonight. maybe tomorrow. my friend is going through some very bad things in her life right now and i find myself trapped in her pain whenever we are together. *sigh* someday she will be happy. untill then... we hurt together.

just got back from dave browns birthday bash.. check out his bands site "brown sugar" here. I went with nomikon and her girl.. we had a great time as usual... everyone started playing music and singing and everything was just cool.. I love these people.. it is very interesting to me that I went to this festival to get away from it all because there were some bad things going on in my life at the time and turns out I end up becoming friends with some really cool people.. life is funny sometimes. more poetry tomorrow. and maybe I will be able to recover some of my poetry from my laptop if I can get this converter for the samll ide conntector so I can put some more of my older stuff up.. turned I wrote last night... fly and darkness I wrote in like 8th or 9th grade...I have tons more on that hard drivre.. I hope it still works.. welp.. now ..its sleepy happy time. life is good. =]

darkness hides in the
bright light of day
you can not see it
it's there in the grey.

hiding in shadows
made by light so it seems
darkness and shadows
together, a team

darkness is evil
and there all the time
theres no escape from
this evil sublime

then late at night
as it roams free
it creates places
so black you cant see

while in the dark shadows
of the black night
dont get caught in them
or fear will take flight

so dont take a peek
in dark rooms or the hallways
under the bed
or inside the crawlways

for there darkness hides
where light doesnt bounce
waiting and watching
ready to pounce

so one word of wisdon
for those who just might
when entering darkness
bring a flashlight.

because our love was strong
i feel it is not gone
but yet i know it is
thats why i write this song

reality sets in
when you know that you cant win
cause love is not a game
that ever stays the same

i feel that deep depression
that sets in when you go
but now it is forever
you wont come back I know

so now fairwell to you
this is our final goodbye
for when we next meet
it will be in heaven where birds dont fly.

the insanity of time has made me free.
twirl around in it I stumble for a time.
when did my trip start to not be mine.
this innocence, doesn't yet know what it can be.

turned it around.

lust as I walk along my way.
faster then time it seems to be.
speeding up my mind and what I think I see.
but now I cant seem to make it stay.

turned it down.

once, I looked outside my window
at the snowflakes, falling free.
and pondered, is their playful dance,
really, mocking me.

turned it away.


to you.


come with me and I will show you
the way that my life can change yours.
the way your life has changed me.
and that way I can never really be.

turned it free.

lets see... 6:00pm.. I found out today that this lawsuit we have had going for a while, that basically meant nothing to us in light of recent events, is this "monumental" case. So says the guy we were suing.. what fun.. he is just dumb... we wanted it over as nether of us was getting anything out of it besides wasting of each others time and money.. well he seems to think that he has changed the world because one small town judge didn't understand the problem and gave a very fuzzy and impossible to complete ruling due to that fact. lol. under the DMCA we can now prove he is the bad person because of facts brought about in this case, and charge him for every day he has been doing what he has been doing. the other ruling is as good as overturned already.

Here is a hint:

A. If you work for a company. Don't think that the software you are writing with a team for that company while employed by that company is "your" software.

B. Don't try to then make said company stop using said software as if you had no idea they were going to continue using this software, that their whole business is founded upon, when you left.

C. Do not try to take credit for 100% of the work. This is very important also because it shows that you would know damn well that without the others working on it, the software never would have gotten started. Let alone get to the point it has now.


D. Without the need for it... (I.E. a FREAKEN HOSTING COMPANY OF YOUR OWN.).. you would have had no reason to even write it in the first place.

Oh well.. we said we would put an end to it while the other little case was going... he didn't want it. Especially after someone who basically got us all our starts, or had a part in it at least, had died... we saw no point in it..... let it go we said... he wanted it to go all the way... now we will... now he must unfortunately learn that he is finally going to be proven wrong, and for the first time in his life, he will not be able to escape it.

sweet irony.

didnt write this morning. heh.. felt like crap.. but I feel good now. and its still early. I wonder what everyone is doing tonight... damn.. I should leave the office soon. its almost 9.. hmm... maybe like now in fact.

another day... gone. I am feeling much better now that I am going to be sleeping soon. it is very strange how I tend to feel more awake and alive as the night goes on. all day I felt like crap.. now I feel like a million bucks I just worked out for like 40 minutes. and I will fight to stay awake for some reason.. like I'mna miss somethin... or something.... wierd. Even when I know I will feel like crap in the morning if I stay awake to late.

I am now sitting here watching the war, and checking out some web media on it.. one page scares me slightly. the page, on, says, 'A spokesman for Osama bin Laden, the chief suspect in the Sept. 11 terrorist strikes on New York City, Washington and Pennsylvania, responded by promising more attacks by suicide hijackers, vowing: The storm of airplanes will not stop."'' The full article can be read here. *sigh* i'd like to blow it off as b.s. but following what has just happened, and that since several people have shown it is still possible to get knives on planes i dont know. i hope our fine govt is doing its job well and can get this insanity under control.

oh yea.. this is not why I cant sleep... been that way for years. I think it is the computer thing.. they never get tired, and I must prove myself greater a being. =]

happy sleepy time soon hopefully... work in the am...

I dont know that I really feel all that better even.. oh well.. I will soon I'm sure.
