This is random but- HEY, I ACTUALLY TOOK A SHOWER TODAY!!! I also finally played my lying-there-for-5-weeks-Xbox-360 game system. Well, getting back to the topic of my birthday and christmas break, I love it. This blog is a wonderful place for me to share my emotions and excitement over certain things in my life with you, my wonderful readers.
Well, now closing this post, I am currently upsessed with 1. my new portable HDD and all of the software-emulation possibilities, 2. the Eee PC and how much I need to save up for it, 3. Infinite Undiscovery and 4. HOW MUCH I REALLY WANT TO CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS WITH ALL OF MY MOELLER BUDDIES.
I'll probobly post full descriptions about the games and other gifts after tomorrow...... I mean today!!!! Especially since I'm still awake at 1:50 AM. Well, ffor all of those RPG Hunters out there, contact me if you want to learn about the best Wii, Xbox 360, and PC R.P.G. games there are out on the market that I have played. That's all for now folks!!! Love you all and have a great break- well, those that are in school still.

If any of you viewers ever get bored of reading my blogs, well duh it has to happen sometime, just send email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org an email. I don't check these as often as my main gmail account, but that is mainly for the safe-from-spam purpose.
I know that I blog about technology and/or books on and off, but this is for SURE a good post about technology. OpenMoko's Neo Freerunner is the first of many Mobile Linux objects that I have set my sights on. Of course this phone-internet tablet-keychain-thing is very interesting, but not supporting Verizon Wireless OR Vodaphone OR O2 will get them WHERE? I don't see how not creating a CDMA-version Neo Freerunner will get them anywhere!! I am kind of crunched for time- not really, just very tired- and I would like to get as much on this device out of my brain before I pass out from sleep loss. lol. Yes, O.M. did it with thier Neo and Apple did it with thier iPhone and HTC did it with thier HTC Touch Pro. yes, these are all Smartphone/Managing devices. HTC succeeded in creating a phone that turned out to be a Windows-mockup of the iPhone, and O.M. succeeded in creating a device that could be simple and intuitive or deep & evolving depending ON THE USER. The Neo Freerunner can be completely customized- from it's casing and screen all the way down to it's interface and Operating System code. If you are starving for more information that I seem to be depriving from you, go on over to http://www.openmoko.com/ to find out for yourself what a miracle this is.
Well, do any of my readers like Google Talk? You can get on Google Talk via the pop-out gadget on my gamerz88 blog.

Oh how I wish it would snow more.
Well, my only technology to report of today is my school laptop.
I figured I would, you know, start a OneNote Sharing Session with my friend Nathan to- of course- study for math.
DID IT TURN OUT OK? NO
Well, now I'm stuck without exam notes, but you know, it's all good. I luckily thought ahead to put the paper copies of all my TODAY exam notes in a folder that could slip into my laptop case.
Yea they fit, though the folder's metal clip kind of scratches up the back of the Tablet PC's screen.
So, at the moment, I finished my Algebra Exam about 5 minutes ago. Luckily school doesn't let out until I want it to- just kidding, We get out at 11:00am if weather allows and most of these guys will get home at 3:00 if buses come at 2:00pm.
WOO HOO. THE TESTS ARE GETTING PASSED BACK- I got an A!!!!!
That test was kinda hard, giving the fact that Ionly had a paper copy of my notes but still pulled off an a grade!!! My School laptop apparently won't connect to Google Talk Labs Edition at school though. Well, ttats pretty much all for now. Still wanting an Eee PC, I find myself at a spending-halt until I can earn ANYTHING. Goodluck to all the rest of you who are also sharing my pain in exams. I'm going to work on my Ultima Essay Now….. SEEYA!

Who agrees that this is a great card? Lol. I made this card with a go.pc screenshot and a picture of my dad and I from last summer's trip to Germany. Although I look a lot different now, this sure brings back great memories. My father is fond of using computers and his Blackberry: World Edition for a lot of stuff, as I am fond of the organizational, entertainment, multimedia, management, and blogging/portable uses of Technology today. Of course the wonderful Photo-editing products Photoshop CS4 and GIMP along with music editing program WavePad Master and many other useful gadgets may be used/evaluated by me on a regular basis, the free stuff OF THIS WORLD continues to amaze me. For crying out loud, A COMPANY SPENT A LOT OF TIME, MONEY, AND EFFORT TO CREATE A FULLY-INTERNET-BASED AND RUN-FROM-THE-INTERNET OPERATING SYSTEM CALLED iCloud!!!!! Wow, this technology-enhanced world of ours never ceases to amaze me. Especially the fact that people- maybe even the company that made Go.Pc- are helping kids in underdeveloped countries get a better education by giving them laptops called XO PCs. Well, back to my original point, yes- I did have fun recreating a photo mainly for the purpose of facilitating my dad's happiness for the time being or for suprising him with an AL-created photo for his birthday. I love my dad and, as you can see in this photo, would gladly share my talents with him or anybody who asked of me to create a techology-only work of art.

Uh, now the dudes in my mentor group are talking about details from video games. Our house dean came in and asked what games the guys were playing and they compared scores. RIGHT AFTER HE CAME IN, everbody starts talking about video games nonstop. Great.
Lol. First, studying, then Bloging, then talking about video games, and NOW talking about internet comics? What the hell man? Well, there's my wierd-ish group of guys in a study hall for ya. yea, I'm addicted to blogging even if I might not have anything to talk about, but SO WHAT???
Now they're talking about super smash bros. and throwing controllers at each other- Ok now Shane and Dave are talking abbout Pokemon on the first Game Boys....... Wow. Ok.
This band is mainly a techno-ish band. Thier music is a mix of up-beat bass twists and pumps, long with background made-from-scratch, and hip-hop lyrics most of the time. For mosst people who visit this website, you'll see that I have thier music in my background. I love thier music and it seems that thier name, BASS-NECTAR, always proves itself in thier music.

I don't bother to tag my posts since there aren't really that many and because nobody, unless mentioned in comments by someone other than Unionhawk, cares that much about this blog.
Mythology of the Greeks: MYTHOLOGY, Timeless tales of Gods and Heroes by Edith Hamilton is the wonderful book I'm currently reading. After finding out how Earth and Heaven bore the Mortals from the deaths of all the monsters and after the tales of the Titans, I was sure that it would end somewhere. Apparently not so, my jolly scholar!!! There are still more laughs and cries to be had with more tales of Dionisys and Demeter, and the adventures of Jason & The Argonauts. The Argonauts are other adventurers who also boarded the same Argo ship that Jason guided. Here's a brief summary of this story- remember to give me credit if you use this on a report- Jason, the son of a King named Phrixus is secretly hidden until another nastier king arises. This king, named Pelias, was warned by an oracle of the boy who would eventually lead to his downfall as king. Pelias saw the man who said, "...they call me by the name of Jason". Pelias at once told of how Phyrixus' bidding was to bring the Golden Fleece that rescued him at one time- back to the capital of the kingdom, so that his soul may be returned to his home. Jason was overwhelmed with joy at the idea of great adventure. He made his name known throught Greece for the journey he was about to go on. Once many of the great adventurers- including Hercules and Orpheus- heard of him, they joined forces with Jason and boarded a ship that was called the Argo, therefore becoming the argonauts.
Many of these Argonauts were heroes that were courageous and fearless in the face of death and damnation. Most of them wanted to drink with thier comrades the peerless elixir of valor. AND SO BEGAN THE ADVENTURES OF THE ARGONAUTS.
Thier first encounter was with some of the Harpies. After meeting an old man who was plagued by Zeus. the old man was gifted with the ability of Foresight and this displeased Zeus, who liked to wrap whatever he was doing in a cloud of mystery.
Every day the old man would be plagued by these vicious monsters and RIGHT BEFORE he ate, they would come down and eat ALL OF HIS FOOD. The Argonauts gave him food and this time when the Harpies came down, the two brothers (sons of the North Wind, Boreas) followed the Harpies away and would have slaughtered the bird-monsters completely if a rainbow messenger-goddess hadn't come down to tell them that these things would never harm or annoy the old man anymore.
After making it through the crushing rocks and the Symplegades like the old man told them to, these warriors of adventure set thier sights upon the city which help the Golden Fleece......
....After they had met with King Aetes and Cupid had shot the princess Medea in the heart with a quiver of love when she saw Jason. At that, they ate with the king and as jhe listened he didn't like them any more than Greeks liked foreigners. These heroes bargained that they would conquer his enemies or do anything he wanted from them in return for the Golden Fleece. Jason had to konquer two Bulls, plow a field with thier horns and then throw the teeth of a Dragon into the plows, from which a band of armed men would spring and then Jason would have to kill them too.
Jason did this, with the help of Medea's magic ointment which made anyone who wore it invincible for a day, and went off to get the Golden Fleece.
Jason and his band of heroes then went to the temple that held the Golden Fleece and the girl who fell in love with him lulled the serpent to sleep as they took the Fleece. Some say that- the king sent her brother after them- Medea struck him down and others say that he was killed by Jason when Medea told Apsyrtus that se would meet him under a tree.
That's all for now.

Dear readers, here is an easyway to get more traffic on your site.
Two main ways:
1. Submit you blog or site to Google and add a Chatbox to yours.
2. Publicly advertise- mainly by word of mouth or email- and see how many people you can get to come to your website
I agree, although the fact that Mcain was buying ads for the posterboards in Madden NFL 2008 and 2007 football xbox 360 video games. That was hilarious. Haven't read about it yet? That's where our old friend Google comes in handy.
Let's discuss this in Comments. Anyone out there have issues with Exams
Do any readers of this exquisite Blog know any tips for preparing yourself for exams? I know I have to study for them, of course, but would anybody out there like to share mental-preparation tips? Moeller rocks, especially the Laptop Program. I love this school, but- as in most high schools- I have a lot of work to do. I'm pretty sure that we get more homework than Lakota H.S.s, since Moeller has many technology and literary clubs available and because of the many things we learn in a day. Since all moeller students spend around an hour or more in thier daily classes (3 classes on B days and 4 on an A day) we learn more and get more done, therefore we get more homework.
A horrible thing about the math classes here is the fact that we have to do a daily program called Cognitive Tutor that we can only log in to at school and in order to boost your Algebra grade, you need to do it at least 20 minutes a day. Remember, my fellow students, colleagues and techies, all this is coming from your average Moeller High School Freshman.
Visit our website at www.moeller.org or look at my Moeller Technology Google Group at http://groups.google.com/group/moe-techno.
If youare a fellow Moeller Student, email Alex S. at Moeller.

Well, anyway, YAY NOW THAT THE POSTING-TIME IS FIXED!!!
Isn't it cute? Lol. As you can see, it was mainly meant for my mom and dad, but O WELL. Yea, The "Zipit wireless messenger" isn't really wanted anymore. I'd rather have either a Palm Centro phone or an Eee PC for my B-day. :)

(OF COURSE THE THING SCREWED UP AGAIN, posted on 5:33pm)
The recent announcement of new members to the Open Handset Alliance, those getting behind Google's Android platform, threw up some interesting names... not least manufacturers of netbooks.
There have been rumours of Android's Linux-based interface being converted to sub 10-inch screens for some time now, and Asus and Toshiba's presence hints at such.
The fact that most netbooks run on Linux already would be a significant plus too, as Google's Android OS is based on the same system.
Although Asus is also a noted manufacturer of handsets - both under its own name and for other brands - the rumours of a touchscreen Eee PC also mean that the Android OS could be fairly easily ported to the netbook model.
And the advent of 3G cards being embedded into the devices means the gap between high-powered smartphones and netbooks is coming down all the time as well.
Although it's unlikely to happen in the next year, Android's conversion to the netbook model would be a significant win for Google, which is rumoured to be looking at the PC OS space already.

I've been playing for a while and my XBOX 360 gamertag is a88SUPAKILLA. As of right now, I am offlline but you can always join my party in this game, F.E.A.R., Universe At War, or C&C 3: Kane's Wrath. Those are my most played games. HAPPY HUNTING, ALL YOU FELLOW GAMERS!!! (Really published at 4:20PM, Eastern Time)
Yep. I did it. This photo may be really blurry, but if you can see it, I managed to get a compressed for-psp version of Windows Vista w/SP1 on my PSP. It works very well- even if it doesn't include Microsoft Office 2007 at all- and comes with a couple games. My favorite parts are the Internet Explorer and PSP Start menu. The PSP Start menu was created mainly for the use of all the other programs on this OS and links for I.E., though the Internet Explorer is I.E. and with a couple of firefox add-ins it works perfectly. Google "VISTA on PSP" if you want yo learn how to pull off this incredible feat by yourself. This was very easy (I did it last week in under 4 minutes) all you need is a 1GB or higher memory stick and a PSP-to-USB pag for your transfering. Happy modding!!
(POST WAS REALLY PUBLISHED AT 4:15PM Eastern Time)
Wwell, surely Photoshop CS4 is wayyyy better than our school-edition CS1. Be back with more info later. hahaha, now I gotta get in the shower. Have fun PLAYING!
