At Last

December 27th, 2005 by Quatrux

Well, those days are over at last, but still holidays continues and I hope everything will be alright, I finished my job and got my wage, so I decided to buy myself 1 GB of DDR RAM, I have some slots, so I will be using two 512 MB DDR’s and will give the current 256 MB to my brother. So after I will get it tomorrow I will reinstall the stupid Windows XP because I haven’t done it since September 1, yeah Windows OS got slow because of no reason. I just can’t wait, my system won’t need so much virtual memory anymore, isn’t it great ? :) Yeah Christmas is over, on Christmas Eve I got a little high and ate a lot with my family, spend my time resting and on the computer, I did not buy gifts and stuff, so I feel happy and the main thing – relaxed. So what now ? looking forward to New Year.. this year will be the first year I won’t waste money on fireworks, because fireworks is the same as blowing your money to air :D maybe with my future family I will start blowing my money to the air ;)

Santa Claus has passed my house, I think I deserve this ! Merry Christmas ;)

Chirstmas

December 24th, 2005 by Quatrux

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year everyone, this is one of the most commercial celebrations ever, at least here in the democracy world, people are mad about buying presents and stuff, I find Christmas good because the prices are “lower” than usually and you can buy something useful, like: a washing machine, extra RAM or a new TV etc. and something not useful, like: a lot of cheap Christmas beer and chips. Everyone is asking me where I would celebrate New Year, well I don’t really like Christmas or New Year, they are showing the same TV shows, just a bit differently and I usually eat a lot, almost to until I blow up. Furthermore, I am pissed of to be under the influence of alcohol, because it is always the same, you drink and it is boring and you go sleeping, I would rather spend my time doing something else, that is why I choose juice. But I think I will still get drunk. I hate Christmas, I love the holidays. ;)

Merry Chirstmas and Happy New Year

Weekday ?

December 23rd, 2005 by Quatrux

Well this Weekday was quite hard, but it has finished fast.. as always Monday was the worst day of it, but oh well I don’t really remember what I did at that day.. I feel really tired, because it was the end of the 1st semester and I finished it like an idiot, my marks are above average, ~7 but oh well, I sit on the computer to much doing nothing and wasting my time.. there were many tests this week to finish my semester: maths, history, economics and literature.. and also two works for art lesson, now I had to spend some time on that, oh yeah, physics test, but I did not write it, what a relief :) At Friday I did not go to school, spent my time lying in the bed, but I still needed to go there to get and give some papers.. And so seems like this Weekend was really boring, school and at home sleeping, watching TV and some time on the computer: pascal learning, now my knowledge got bigger ;)

December 18th, 2005 by Quatrux

Well it is Sunday evening now.. darn I did not have any weekend again, it finished so fast, after some good time Friday, all the Saturday was – work and rest at home, the next day – work and physics learning for Monday test, but of course I am like that: will sit on the computer and do something useful, I need to learn pascal for my informatics exam, so a little of that and that.. :S I really feel tired and empty headed :D

I lost my Scarf

December 17th, 2005 by Quatrux

at Friday I was invited to go to a good/live music club “Broadway” or whatever it is spelled, so I took a friend and went there, well I would better not go there, I think so now :) the entrance was for above 18, but my friend wasn’t 18 yet, so we went to meet up with others on other place, bought some beer and later spent some time in the mambo pizza club, after that through the city we got to “Apuokas” bar and had a little bit of beer in a good atmosphere with good music, I met some friends there, but when going home, I understood that I lost my Scarf, I really miss it :( it was a present from a friend and it was my only present which I liked and which was useful for me.. I really miss it, though it is crazy but I really miss it, I am unhappy without it :( and I don’t have any Scarf to wear.. I am lazy to go buy one.. I do not want to spend 20 litas for a Scarf, so as Christmas is coming, Santa oh Santa, please give me a gift, a Scarf, pretty please !! :D

Gimp

December 15th, 2005 by Quatrux

Well, Gimp is really great, currently it is my main software to create simple graphics, it can do a lot and what is best that it is free, i use it on windows and on linux, though I have my first experience with it on linux, I never liked photoshop, because I needed to buy it and that is why I never got into graphics, but after using Gimp I got interested and with time manipulating images I just found it interesting and got the knowledge how graphics are created, though I don’t know a lot about graphics, due to I am a programmer.

GIMP is the GNU Image Manipulation Program. It is a freely distributed piece of software for such tasks as photo retouching, image composition and image authoring. It works on many operating systems, in many languages.

here is the link to the official website: Gimp dot org

the Days

December 15th, 2005 by Quatrux

Wow, it is 4 days since i have not been writing here, this week has passed really fast, I haven’t made anything useful at all, now I need to remember where had my time gone, all that time I almost spent at school and home + shop and a little time with friends. I learned english for a long time and in the lessons I only needed to talk half of what I learned, well I wrote some tests, hard tests and tomorrow 3 tests again, oh darn so much to do so little time, but I think I will still enjoy my time near the computer and will learn history later, to continue a lot of what has changed from yesterday and now I don’t have any point to continue doing something, I need to find what I want to do in my live and seek it, that it would become my aim, because now i do not have any aim anymore, I don’t care for anything except for myself, heh it is time to think about becoming someone I want, my aim will be to first: study informatics in the university and create something by myself – boring. :P

.htaccess files

the Days

December 11th, 2005 by Quatrux

Since last time I have been posting, a lot have happened. But nothing interesting that I could tell. I spent some time with friends, did that and that, learned a bit and spent some time fixing friend’s computer.. all the weekend I was working and really got quite tired so I was lazy to post here, in that time also I spent some time creating and reading about .htaccess and errors using headers etc. Also made a really useful error_page() function in php. I feel quite sleepy and have no ideas, so just think that this post has no sense ;)

Gaim

December 6th, 2005 by Quatrux

Gaim is a multi-protocol instant messaging (IM) client for Linux, BSD, MacOS X, and Windows. It is compatible with AIM and ICQ (Oscar protocol), MSN Messenger, Yahoo!, IRC, Jabber, Gadu-Gadu, SILC, GroupWise Messenger, and Zephyr networks.

Gaim supports many features of the various networks, such as file transfer, away messages, typing notification, and MSN window closing notification. It also goes beyond that and provides many unique features. A few popular features are Buddy Pounces, which give the ability to notify you, send a message, play a sound, or run a program when a specific buddy goes away, signs online, or returns from idle; and plugins, consisting of text replacement, a buddy ticker, extended message notification, iconify on away, spell checking, tabbed conversations, and more.

So one Program which is totally free can be replaced by many Programs you use, I found it really easy and comfortable to use, it just is in your system tray and you’re online, you set up the accounts and configure it how you want. Nevertheless, it has some bugs, but I never really met anything serious or which crashed my system, it lacks some of the protocols features, but as matter of fact those are not needed to much, you even can sit on IRC, want to download it ? go on it is open source software, read more about it on the sourceforge.
