I'm a failure.

Is it true?
Yes, it is.

I just had an error where I was using "they're" properly and Google Docs gave me the one option of correcting it to "theyre," saying they're isnt a word, and that it should always correct it. They're wasn't even in their dictionary. I'm not sure where they're getting these words, but they seriously got to fix this...

Rant-ish post. Out(let).

In Minecraft, I am building the "Phenom" Basic Calculator (I am aware of the AMD Phenom calculators, but it's the coolest thing I could think up originating from my own name, Headphenomenon). It's capable of 5-bit addition and subtraction, ergo adding up to 31 and down to -31 (this possible, the inputs only go up to 15, meaning 31 will never appear). It handles negative numbers thanks to the Most Significant Bit powering a negative symbol on the screen.

Minecraft Zombies: Gimme a Hug

2012-02-11 12:46:54 by headphenomenon

Minecraft Zombies. They're the living undead that make the craziest of sounds, mumble and grumble when you're nearby, can't speak english, probably mad because they don't understand the world they have been reborn into, and sometimes want to kill the player for no reason. They also have a tendency to want to share some T.L.C. (tender loving care), like this Zombie here.

Raptor Shows Off His Ego on The Tester!

2012-02-08 16:40:14 by headphenomenon

Disregarding that title which makes this out to be flaming Egoraptor, I think the episode was pretty awesome. Quite obviously they cut out everything from Egoraptor's interview except for the parts that made him look so f%!*ing full of himself. Nonetheless, see for yourself what's going on with the premiere of The Tester Season 3 (also officially called The Tester 3).

So Concludes Day 2 (Blog 2/7)

2012-02-07 22:26:37 by headphenomenon

As a continuation of yesterday, it's nice to finally enter the new era of Newgrounds. It probably will be in a few more years that we'll have to endure another two days while our NG Staff prepares another redesign. But for now, let's enjoy today's NG. It's a beautiful place, but it's going to take some getting used to.

Hope to make some new memories here on the new Newgrounds, and here are some links for important new things on the site:

Goodbye, account.
Goodbye, account page.
Goodbye, Newgrounds.
We hardly knew ye.

For years and years, you'd been there as my friend.
And as of 10 today, you'll become a newborn baby.
You'll forget all that's happened,
or at least that's what I think.
But nonetheless, I'll treat you just the same.

Goodbye, account.

Goodbye, Newgrounds.

'I Don't Think $5 is Really Money' (Blog 2/1)

2012-02-01 16:57:05 by headphenomenon

So yeah, I thought about actually getting really into these blogs. Not sure how it'll go, as I've tried to do them before and would normally get sidetracked or uninterested in doing them after a short while. Nonetheless, I'm trying it out.

So today I was going around the school around the day, observing all the kids, and what they talk about. Weird thing, maybe. But I learned something. One peculiar topic I found being talked about among the 6th- and 7th-graders along with the 6th grade homeroom teacher was that some kids take forever (or never) learn the value of a dollar. That, or they're spoiled. For me, it didn't take long to learn the value of a dollar. My 7-year-older brother once told me of how I don't manage my money well, sometimes spending all I get and always leading to why I had so little money when I was younger (albeit, that's not bad seeing the most I ever had by the age of 8, excluding my communion where I got $700 that my mom would later swipe from my wallet, was $40 at one time).

Anyway, back on topic. A 6th-grader mentioned how someone who is only in the 5th grade now apparently acquired her first phone at the age of 3. The sad thing is, I've heard this about the person in question once before. I don't see what a 3-year old would do with a phone, but apparently it must have been something for a parent to waste money on one for so many years from a young age. The 6th-grader mentioned how her, still talking about the 6th-grader, first phone was a Blackberry. While I find that brand of phones revolting, I still say it's better than the crappy LG phones my brother and I got as initial devices. She added that her current phone was an iPhone (4 or 4S; not sure).

Immediately after that, our initially-mentioned 7th-grader said the iPhone was a great place to get low-price apps, noting how apps are "only" $5. She went on to say directly to the teacher that "I don't think five dollars is really money." It's absurd. I see a penny, I start scrimping, maybe up to 8 bucks in pennies alone. I'm only a year older than said 7th-grader (therefore, obviously, an 8th-grader), yet I think so much about the tiniest amounts of money. Take a look at the image below (courtesy of this Google search result) to see what my collection of cash normally looks like. Yeah. That's it. Mostly coins, and a few dollar bills (although most of the time these bills are more than just singles).
One other thing: Adobe Flash CS4 Professional doesn't work on my computer ever since I upgraded to the Windows 8 Developer Preview or on my Windows 7 desktop. If you have any information on how to get it to work, even if simply on Windows 7, PM me or check out my forum post.

'Till Death Fucks Everything Up.' (Blog 1/29)

2012-01-29 14:52:11 by headphenomenon

Gonna become a little bit more centered on my life with these posts (odd, right?). After Flash CS4 stopped working on my comp, I'm nothing. I've reinstalled several times Flash, and I'm not going to lose everything on my computer to use the System Recovery disc to reset back to Windows Vista from Win8.

Anyway, back to the point. What with this being 8th grade year, it's finally come time to choose how I'll choose 4 of the more important years of my life: the high school years. In this time lots of the most significant things that will define my future will occur: I take S.A.Ts; I get my driver's test; possibly get my first car; get the grades that could put me in an away college with a scholarship; and possibly even meet the girl. Whatever happens, it's set in stone to happen, and it will happen for a reason, for better or for worse. Till death fucks everything up.

I've chosen my high school: Roselle Catholic HS. Not sure how this will do (wasn't my first choice, but my older bro went there, had a nice 4 years), but I have a first place scholarship (given to only two people who applied to the school) of $1500/yr (although that still leaves $7,850 to be paid as normal tuition) and I have been invited to their Honors Program. Pretty cool stuff. I hope to do well in the future at the school. And I hope to be prepared to do my work, what with my parents allowing me to choose my laptop for my graduation present. I have chosen an HP Pavillion g7t series laptop, customized with the following:

Processor: Intel Core i3-370M (2.4GHz, 3MB L3 Cache) + Intel HD Graphics
Memory: 6GB DDR3 System Memory (2 Dimm)

Hard Drive: 500GB 5400rpm
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit (+Recovery Disc)
Display: 17.3" diagonal HD+ HP BrightView LED Display (1600x900)
Networking: the standard 802.11b/g/n WLAN + Bluetooth
Keyboard has Numeric Keypad
