up and running

The new domain, rakuen.nu, is finally up. As of now, I am not going to do anything with domains or hosts. If everything's deleted, tough. I'm not moving again. I'm very, very tired of all of this. Thankfully, though, my host has been incredibly helpful with everything, far better than my last.

All subdomains are now active. Faaip.com will remain as is. I won't be transferring it, and once the year is up, it will be up for registration by anyone who wants it. This is the last domain I will ever own, hopefully.

At least this one's been fun working on. I recoded all of the PHP for the index, comments, and archive page, making one big page. Much easier for me to work with now. o_o

Haven't talked to Tea very much in the past few days. Very lonely online without her to talk to. God, I miss her. ;_;

down

     In a perfect world, people in general will hear the album, be inspired and do something extraordinary. I hope someone might use us as a backdrop for inspiration for some other activity they excel in. I'm not going to spoon feed anybody and rob them of their own personal experiences. I read the interpretations of the lyrics that people send to the Tool web page. They're way off. But that's fine.
     I really do have more faith in humanity than most people think I do. I get resentful and upset when people don't use their head about stuff. It upsets me when people are selling themselves short and letting themselves down, whether it's education or information.

- Maynard James Keenan

domain

It doesn't look like my domain is going to get transferred. I'm tired of bugging my host about it, as they don't respond. So I'm considering registering a new domain myself, so this will never be a problem again. Only problem is that I have no idea what kind of name to register. Faaip.com was the best I could do.

mail

Mmmmnng... after checking over my site for miscellaneous problems (quite a few of which I found in my MySQL databse, which is actually getting large at this point), I discovered that I apparently entered in my own email address wrong in the CGI mailer. Meaning I haven't gotten any emails since whenever I did that. And now, for whatever reason, I can't access any CGI scripts, so it won't work at this point anyway.

So... llamakun@hotmail.com <-- if you sent me a message sometime recently, send it to that address.

The MySQL gave me quite a few problems as well. I'm beginning to despise it again, but I don't feel like switching back to basic HTML. Ah well.

No school tomorrow, which I'm very thankful for. School's been a massive pain in the ass, and it's only the second quarter. I've got a D in physics, which my parents don't seem to mind. That freaked me out, because they usually yell at me if I get anything below a C average. That's really the only class I'm having trouble in. Too many damn equations to remember. =P I've got a 50-point paper to turn in for Composition, but I don't really feel like doing it... and it was due last Wednesday, so I'd probably get close to zero anyway. The joy of procrastination.

Schism [ 6.21 MB, 6:47 ]

In the interest of broadening some musical horizons (and giving the few people that read this an idea of what it is I'm so obsessed about), I've uploaded my favorite Tool song, Schism. I'll be deleting it in a few days, so hurry up and download it =P

And happy birthday to Vince, even though it's a day late... I suck at remembering dates unless they're thrown at me several times a day.

*kills self*

After countless hours working on the posting script for the blog, I discovered something. Nothing was wrong with it. There was some kind of bug in the MySQL database, so I had to do a little reworking there, but everything seems to be fine now.

I've also put all of my pages into a MySQL table, which makes it overall easier for me to manage. I'm really starting to love this db stuff, even though it's a pain in the ass when it doesn't want to work. And I have no idea what the hell any of it means, yet I'm still using it... @_@

Damned MySQL

I somehow messed up the PHP script I was using to post in the blog with my random editing. I tried reinstalling the freakishly small thing, but it still isn't working, so I have no idea what the hell I did. I've resorted to just adding the information directly to the MySQL database -_-

BAH!

Edit: http://faaip.cjb.net/ I got a damned little CJB.Net address set up, so at least this way once (actually, if) the domain's back up, people will know there's a permanent way to get to the site =P. And directories and crap work for that address, too ^_^;;

new server

My previous host, 1UHOST, whose service was far below what was advertised, has proved to be the biggest mistake I've made in hosting decisions. Their network's been down for nearly three weeks straight at this point.

Anyway, new server and all. I've unfortunately lost two hostees, and I'm sure that won't be all. -_-;;

Tool concert

Well, yesterday's concert was, by far, the greatest event of my life. It was actually the first concert I'd gone to. Since none of my friends are interested in Tool, I went with my sister. I was glad she went, because I'm fairly sure she's a fan at this point.

Anyway, my sister and I left at about 6:30. When we got to the arena, the parking lot was packed. Big surprise, huh? =P After being frisked, we went straight to our seats. We were much closer to the stage than I expected: we were in the nearest... fourth of the arena, I guess I'd say. There were about 4,900 people there, most of which were down in the pit. Nothing happened until 7:30, when the opening band, Meshuggah (who I'd never heard of) came on. All in all, they were a good band, but I didn't really like them. Most of their songs sounded the same: loud music and inaudible, screamed lyrics. They played for about 45 minutes. And then it took Tool about 15 or 20 minutes to set up, during which a girl flashed the stage (which nobody was on, other than the techs... loser -_-). The second Maynard stepped onto the stage, everybody went INSANE. The cheering was about as loud as the music.

Tool was absolutely amazing, as expected. Their opening song was Sober, one of my favorites. It was especially enjoyable because all of the songs sounded exactly as they did on the albums, aside from the obvious discrepancies that are common at live shows. I nearly started crying when The Grudge and Schism started. My sister actually got into the show more than I did; she was jumping around and screaming :P

Only a few things about the show bothered me. There was a large amount of drinking going on. I hate drinkers. One guy, who was about my dad's age, got so drunk he couldn't even stand up and had to be taken home by his wife. The epitome of pathetic, if you ask me. Why the hell would you spend $40 to get shit-faced during the first 20 minutes of a live show? There were also a lot of smokers. The insanely large amount of "no smoking" signs had absolutely no effect on these people. The guys sitting next to my sister were smoking pot. Fun fun fun. At one point, one of them spilled a glass of beer on her. I'm surprised she didn't beat the hell out of him.

Here's a full list of what they played: Sober, Stinkfist, Aenema, Forty-six and Two, Triad, Schism, Lateralus, The Grudge, Disposition, Reflection, Parabol, Parabola. I was hoping for The Patient as well, but no luck there.

Triad is only around 3 minutes long on the album, but they dragged it out to an agonizing 10 minutes, if not more. Disposition and Reflection (both of which have a lot more music than lyrics and are very long) were played one after the other. I wouldn't mind if they were played at different times, but the way things were, it was basically just a half-hour of nothing but music. No Maynard = bad.

If possible, I have even more respect for the members of Tool than I ever did. It was obvious they put a lot of energy into the show, which I really appreciate (being the small, "irrelevant" city that we are, I was half expecting a half-assed show). Maynard even gave a little spiel about how we should think for ourselves, just before Lateralus began. He also thanked us for "sharing this moment" with them ^_^

We left right after the show ended, at around 11:00 PM. I've never had so much fun in my life, and I'm not sure I ever will. It wasn't as loud as I'd hoped, though. =D

Rammstein YAY @_@

I've finally gotten the Rammstein book I ordered from Amazon on Sunday. It's a lot bigger (in terms of the size of the pages and cover) than I expected. Unfortunately for me, it's nearly all pictures. There's a two-page biography of Till, which I don't think is going to be enough for me to use on my upcoming "famous person" speech. It's not even two full pages, each page is divided into two columns, one for German and one for English, so it's only one page... -_-

I got 10 out of 15 points on my notes today though. Very lucky for me, seeing as we needed four full pages, and I had less than one.

After looking quickly through the book, I've found my favorite picture: Till (of course) =P

MySQL = no

After several hours of messing around with MySQL and PHP interaction, I've decided I don't care that much. It takes far too long (for me, anyway) to get anywhere with the damned coding. Ah well, the MySQL server's having some massive problems at the moment ^_^;;

code stuff

Sweet Jesus, I want to make more changes @_@. All this comment crap is getting annoying to work on, so I'm going to try and set up a MySQL database for all of them (along with the posts), even though I despise MySQL... expect changes soon. And be disappointed when they don't happen.

mouse

I got a new mouse today, after several months of malfunctions from the old one. It's too accurate, though... when I click something, I get a reaction on the monitor. I'm not used to that. -_-;;

Highlight of my day... no school, though, so that was good.

Happy birthday to Sarah! (hope it's your birthday ^_^;;). I'd give you something if I had any idea as to what that something could be... the only thing I can think of is to offer to host you, but I'm already doing that =P

Anyways, feliz cumpleaños.

shallow girls

I overheard a conversation between two girls in American history today.

Girl #1: So what do you look for in a guy?
Girl #2: Doesn't matter, as long as he's got a big dick.


Jesus Christ. If it wasn't for my polite upringing, I would've slapped her. I despise shallow people.

Since I seem to be swearing at least once every entry, I decided not to say "Jesus fucking Christ".... oh look, there it is. Fucking damnit...

more downtime

Two full days of downtime. Two fucking days. With my low amount of income, I can't afford a new host at the moment. And my parents can't (or won't, whichever) help me. Meaning I'm stuck with this one for another month, at least. It can be considered a good thing for me, I guess. I sure as hell won't use a cheap host with so many guarantees and support only through email again.

"If there were no rewards to reap,
No loving embrace to see me through
This tedious path I've chosen here,
I certainly would've walked away by now.
And I still may ... "

people suck

In Algebra II, last period of the day, I sit next to this annoying girl in the back of the room, right in front of the door. Every day, I lay my calculator on my desk in preparation for class (I have a TI 83+). She grabs it, fiddles with it, and then bitches at me to put the password in so she can play games. After a while, I just get tired of hearing her voice, so I do it.

Two days ago, she told me to go fuck myself because I wasn't talking to her much. I was actually happy to hear that, because I assumed it meant she'd leave me alone. God in heaven, what was I thinking? Yesterday, she grabbed my calc again. She gave it to me and told me to put in the password, and the guy that sits in front of me asked if he could play some of the games. Obviously, I gave it to him rather than her. For the next 15 minutes, she kept telling me I was an asshole. It felt so good to say "I really don't give a damn, stop talking to me." :)

Today, she was still talking to me. And my friends wonder why I hate people. *awaits armageddon*

Schism

Tool - Schism

I know the pieces fit cuz I watched them fall away
mildewed and smoldering, fundamental differing,
pure intention juxtaposed will set two lovers souls in motion
disintegrating as it goes testing our communication
the light that fueled our fire then has burned a hole between us so
we cannot see to reach an end crippling our communication.

I know the pieces fit cuz I watched them tumble down
no fault, none to blame it doesn't mean I don't desire to
point the finger, blame the other, watch the temple topple over.
To bring the pieces back together, rediscover communication.

The poetry that comes from the squaring off between,
And the circling is worth it.
Finding beauty in the dissonance.

There was a time that the pieces fit, but I watched them fall away.
Mildewed and smoldering, strangled by our coveting
I've done the the math enough to know the dangers of a second guessing
Doomed to crumble unless we grow, and strengthen our communication

cold silence has a tendency to atrophy any sense of compassion

between supposed lovers
between supposed brothers.

And I know the pieces fit.


After buying a shirt from the official Tool site (this'n), I felt the need to plug them. So.. there you go =P

Even though this is worth making a new entry for, I don't feel like making one, so I'll just edit it into this one. I've got a new hostee, Yuna (as I know her :p). I swear this is the last one now...

COMMENTS!!1! and stuff

Tea finally got me to enable comments on this thing. You better leave some, then! It took nearly all day to get it working, mainly because I kept wandering over to the TV for half-hour increments...

I aslo added a dotted border to the individual entries. If you can't see it, your browser sucks.

Still need to do my physics homework, but I've come to the conclusion that I do not like physics. My teacher's awesome, but I can't figure out what the hell I'm doing.

downtime

More than a full day of downtime for the server. I realize that there are sometimes complications, but what the hell? 99% uptime guarantee, 24/7 monitored network... hmm, interesting how a network that's down for a full day is monitored all the time. I'm also beginning to think that uptime guarantee only applies to the first day, possibly the first week. Everything on my host's site is a complete lie, and I'll be switching to a new one. In 10 months. -_-

school service

We had a kind of memorial service today for 9/11. If you haven't heard, there's something called the Rolling Requiem, where schools in different time zones play some piece of music (I'm guessing it has "Requiem" in the name somewhere) at 8:46. The orchestra and the chorus were amazing. I honestly was hoping they'd perform more, they were very talented. We had a few speakers in between some segments of the music. Overall, the service was about an hour long.

I had to read a children's book to a small group of students in speech class today. The book wasn't very long, but my throat was still sore. That should give you an idea of how very little I talk throughout the day :p

That's about it. The girl that sits next to me in Algebra II still thinks I'm "cranky" because I don't talk to her throughout the entire period. I hate her -_-

Finally got Tea to let me host her :p. Other than that, not much is different, I just added a link button and some links, edited a few pages, and took out the "stuff" section.

Today, school starts at 7:30. But it lets out at 12:30, so I don't mind ^_^;;

hostees size

I decided to see how much space each of my hostees was taking up today. Even though I'm using week-old files as a reference... it's not like that much has changed :p

animeking - 3.82 MB
animelife - 3.19 MB
eternal - 5.06 MB
here - 2.72 MB
nafftastic - 5.40 MB
ravage - 14.4 KB
sarah - 5.38 MB
ssjbigguy - 95.58 MB

Bigguy's was far too big for me to download myself, so I just added up the other totals (along with my stuff, which is about 12.4 MB) and subtracted them from the overall total, 121.16 MB. Most of those surprised me =P

hitchhiker thanks

"I rather like the book I'm reading (Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy), it's really the only genuinely funny thing I've come across for a while."

I'd just like to say a huge 'thank you' to Sarah for being so obsessive over Arthur Dent and Douglas Adams, otherwise I wouldn't have read it. Thank you! ^_^;;

Still waiting for Claire to add an entry. BLOG, DAMN IT! :|

Maynard. I'm so obsessed with Tool @_@

2) Who's the coolest person you know?
Tea, by far ;). But anyone and everyone I like is cool.

"you're one of the best looking guys I've seen" Yes, I'm sure she was just saying that to make me feel better. God bless her ^_^

Usually. I sometimes just do it to annoy people and/or make them think I'm interested in what they're saying.

Sadly, something to do with my grandpa. It's not funny unless you know him.

10) If you could be surprised with ONE THING, what would it be?
A plane ticket to somewhere none of you need to know.

new layout

The time has come once again to downgrade my site. Amazing, isn't it? I did manage to keep the last layout for longer than a week. It seems like a month since I last redesigned it, but I couldn't wait that long. Haha. *kills self* I'm not all that sure why I consider this an actual layout, especially when compared to my idle-llama.com layouts, which I loved.

I finally talked to Tea last night. I've barely talked to her all week, so it was quite the surprise to be online when she popped in ^_^. We had a nice long chat, about 3 & 1/2 hours. I wonder if we'll ever crack our record (which is about nine hours, I think @_@). Damn school is keeping me away from her... may have to start neglecting my homework if this keeps up.

In case you couldn't figure it out, school's been keeping me pretty busy. I'm usually only online for a few hours a day due to the large amount of homework I've been getting. Speech class is the worst I'm taking, by far. I absolutely cannot stand giving speeches, but the class is required. Funny how that works =P

first day of school

Today was the first day of school. All I'll say is that I completely hate school and most of the students, so it wasn't exactly enjoyable for me. Of course, nothing ever is.

Arnold's Park

My family (my parents and my sister) and I went to a theme park in Iowa called Arnold's Park, which is about 2 hours from where we live. Best theme park in existence. We've been there quite a few times, but it's been years since the last time. We all love the rollercoaster, which we went on a minimum of 25 times throughout the day. We stayed on it for about 6 rides each time ^_^. My sister kept bugging my dad to scream on it, so once we got past the first hill, he leaned forward until his face was almost between the heads of the two girls in front of him and screamed as loud as he could. Funniest thing I've seen on any of the trips. =P His throat got very sore after that, though. We went on a bunch of dizzying rides in a row, so I was fairly close to puking nearly all day. My sister talked me into going on the Zipper (think of a Ferris wheel but with pivoting cages instead of gondolas) with her. I hate her for it. She refused to release the break, so we stayed completely stationary and went upside down every damn time around. -_- After about 3 hours of that, we walked over to a Godfathers and bought a massive pizza. The four of us only finished half of it. Midnight snack, I guess.

Nothing else happened today, other than I came home and discovered I couldn't access Tea's board. I'm bored out of my mind.

And only three days until school starts. Damn it all, I have to take speech first semester. I hate people very much and also talking to them. So this is going to be a very bad experience for me. But I'm starting C++ this semester as well, so I guess that's good. All of my other classes are basically required. My mom's still a little angry that I don't want to drive myself to school, but I don't see the point. I'd probably end up parking in a no-parking zone and getting a ticket anyway. Besides, it's not like my grandpa has anything else to do...

I'm also going to see the new Austin Powers movie tomorrow. With this guy. Might as well get some more fun in before hell begins.

modem problems

Today was not fun. Last night (or early this morning, whatever), there was a large thunder storm. Apparently, my modem was shocked at some point and became worthless. I couldn't do anything about it that late in the night, so I went to bed. My parents didn't get home until about 5:00 PM, and they were annoyed when I explained the problem. I told them we should just buy a new modem... did they listen? No. =D After about 3 hours of messing around and calling two of my uncles, they figured we should buy a new one (amazing!), so my dad and I went to Best Buy and bought one. And now I am online. Would've been so much easier if they'd just listened to me to begin with. -_-;;

Event Horizon

I've decided not to take anymore hostees. My host has been a little iffy on some issues and I don't want to jeopardize my site or current hostees. :|

I watched Event Horizon for the second time in my life last night. Jesus, it was worse than I remembered. This time around, I played the whole video-log scene in slow motion. God, that was disgusting. By far the most disturbing scene in the movie... though seeing Sam Neill with his eyes ripped out was pretty sickening, too. I kind of want to watch it again... kill me >_<

GreyMatter

I decided to use GreyMatter. It's much better than Blogger, but it was incredibly annoying setting up my old entries >_<. But now it's much easier to add and change crap. Yay. =P

Worship Tea. And post here and make Kit happy @_@

redesign/school start

Hoo-ah! Redesigned the site to the simplest form I could think of... and added a stupid little barcode thingy. I swear to God I am not touching the layout (aside from minor changes) for at least a month.

School starts in a little over a week. SHIT !! I hate school with a passion. Even though all I do is stare at my desk and/or the door. I don't even do homework usually. But I nearly failed 3 classes last year, so my parents are buckling down this time around... fun fun fun.

Blogger sucks

I decided that Blogger sucks. Very, very much. So I'm coding all of this by hand, which is going to get fucking annoying once this thing gains a few more entries (especially if when I redesign).

I hate having a website.

email access

I finally got into my email account ^_^. I remembered that the entire email system was set up on bigmailbox.com and found the directory for users, and went from there. Took too damn long for me to remember that, though :p

Tea came back today. That was quite a nice surprise finding her online after waking up from sleeping all day. :D

no email access 2

I still can't get into my email. Wonder if anybody's actually mailed me :p. Evangelion.com is pure evil. And in complete control of whether or not I can read my email. Damn it all! >_<

no email access

I can't access my email account. That pisses me off beyond belief. :P Seeing as I'll be deleting the old site within a week, and less than half of my hostees have replied to my email, they're probably going to be screwed. No more hostees? @_@

PHP and AMG

I started to miss all the PHP from the old site, so I recoded this'n :p. Much easier for me, I suppose. Though it was a hassle to go through the pages and take out and put in misc coding.

I also added a section for anime reviews. I won't add to that very often, it took me a few weeks just to right the AMG review XD.

blog reason

There's no way I'm going to be posting in this thing as often as I am once everyone gets settled in :p. I've set up FTP accounts for three people so far. Send the emails, dammit! >_<

In case you're wondering, the main reason I've got this blog here is because people kept bitching at me for not having any content on my last site. I've wanted a blog of sorts for a while now, so I figured what the hell. But it's my domain and I will do whatever the hell I want with it ^_^

Tea's gone

Tea may be gone for a few days. That makes me very sad ;_;. Actually, I'm glad that she'll be getting back to the US soon, so we'll hopefully be able to chat during the day instead of the middle of the night :p. And I shall reign supreme at her board until she gets back :X

I should probably email my hostees about setting up the FTP account. -_-;;

uploaded files

As of now, I've finished uploading all files from the old site aside from those of two hostees. Waiting for the damn nameserver to update at this point -_-. Once that happens, I need to create the FTP accounts and subdomains, after emailing my hostees for the correct information. Not that I mind a whole hell of a lot, it was my decision to move in the first place. Yep... new domains are fun ^_^
