Slow Day

I have no excusses but for some reason I am getting very litle work done today. Yes I am still at work blogging, but this is but one example of not getting very much work done. I was extreamly productive yesterday, so maybe this is the comedown effect from that. Or it could be that I dont have that much to do (definatly not). I just cant seem to focus for more than 15 mins which is annoying. I have been trying to get what I can done, as I know tomorrow I will probably be back to normal. Its days like these where it would be better if you just stayed home.

Home could be the problem, because at home there is ps2 and where there is ps2 there is the recently acquired Need for Speed Carbon, which I bought on Monday for $29.95. I havent played ps2 since we got our new tv as I couldn't be arsed to hook it up. Mainly because of a lack of ports (one of everything is pretty weak), but thankfully the vcr has a few I can use. As unbeliveable as that sounds, the VCR has more holes in it than the TV.

Playing games on a wide screen is different. You can actually see what you are doing. Its also bright enough to actually see what you are doing, which you dont appreciate untill you actually play a game were there are shaddows that hide what you are doing and you basicly have to guess... But now that I can see it is awesome. God of war is a bit like that, but because of the brightness I dont keep dieing. God of war 2 is out now for about $60. But hopefully it will come down in price by the time I finish God of War. One of the interesting things about of God of War is appart from it being an awesome game there seems to be not much media attention on the mini sex games. In GTA:SA all you had to do was take your gf to the night club and visit her frequently and you would get to have sex, and on the PC version there was a patch you could download where you got to see the sex. In God of war you have 2 naked women you jump on the bed and you have to press the various buttons as they flash on the screen to make them have more vigous sex, as depicted by a wobbly vase (you win by knocing the vase over).

After reading both of these articles I can proudly say I feel slightly more independent.

Clients: Part 2

And its annoying because you just cant tell how much work would be involved, and if you over estimate then they may decide to go somewhere else and if you underestimate and when the project is finished and you send them the bill they get upset and "you told be $XXX", "but I did spend the last 2 weeks working on it putting aside other work". Oh and the other thing that gets me about clients are the ones that ask you to get something done quicker and then dont bother to even collect that day and wait a week, when you could have comforatbly done it over the the week.


Luckily the computer caught the virus instead of me. And it was all may own fault. Considering the number of questionable sites I visit, you would think that I would have viruses more often. This is my first virus and maybe in my haste to get Doom 3 to work I didn't notice the evil file I was downloading. As soon as you extract the file the virus (it was actually a Trojan, but it had the ability to create more copies of it self etc... it was quite nasty) the virus loads it self on the computer, then downloads more shit from the internet called Win Anti Virus 2007. It was very well done and looked legitimate, but when stuff starts to download it self you know somethings wrong. Or when you cant get to your anti virus program as it puts its window 'always on-top'. So to get rid of this nasty virus I had to download about 8 different scanning programs and 3 file analysis programs and run them in various numerous times to get rid of this virus. It took 3 days. Which is better than my recovery time. But I still don't feel safe, I will be doing a clean install. But weirdly the package that contained the virus actually had working keys for Doom 3. So in a way its still good. But I think in future I will stick to more well known sites... Oh and run Anti-virus when downloading packages. And run the program on a virtual machine...
Your Inner Child Is Scared

Like a kid, you tend to shy away from new experiences.
You prefer what's tried and true - novelty is scary!
New foods, new places, and new friends are difficult for you to deal with.
Some say you're predictable, but you enjoy being comfortable.
