We have storms in our area and my wife is crying because of it. We may go to her sisters house because they have a storm shelter. Our weak apartment doesn't stand a chance if anything were to happen. I don't trust weather Men. They said it wasn't going to get that ugly, just heavy rain. Twisters and bad flooding. It's scary outside. If anyone lives in the Texas/Oklahoma region, stay safe.

You can have it. I don't mind rain, but I dislike tornado sirens going off every other second. It's loud and annoying. I don't know anything about weather, but the weather man said it's going to get worse today than last night, so me and her are packing a bag and going to her sister's house for the night.

Warning, I'm going to vent a bit...If you read my topic in the suggestion forum, you would be aware that I'm working on a website for a college project.

Fact is, I'm getting pretty tired, because, once again, I'm a one man team.

2 years ago, at another college, I had an iPhone game project, scaled for 3 persons for 2 weeks. In the end we were only 2 to do. I coded 95% of the game, but I'm not much complaining about my teammate, because he did help with the report, presentation, visual/sound effect, and showed support.

Last year, another project with a robot, group of 2, 100% of the code is me, 50% of the report is from me, the other 50% were fully corrected by me...

Now, I'm handling a search module for a website, 3 persons including me ( other teammate are on other module ). Both aren't native French, so it's pretty hard to explain to one of them. But at the very least, what I give to him his done in one way or another.

The other person in my ground… I spent 4 hours setting up a development environment, in vain. The computer's Windows is simply, busted ( including the keyboard which has some key which simply doesn't work ).
Then, as we are developing, I handed out different task, I prepared most of the logic ( think of cooking recipe ), which just needed to be applied to write the code. But I had to remain behind her because she would ask question every minutes.

Then as a test ( you may not realize but I often test people, even on Shuu xD ), I gave a very simple task for a developer ( 4th year of engineering in my case ). Take this sentence "action,rts,fps". I just want a PHP function which split this into separate words, using the comma as a separator. HALF AN HOUR GOD******, before asking me for advice. In 5 minutes if not less, after 3 Google search, I had the function…

Now for tomorrow, I wanted the result of the search displayed in a table. Well, I got the table, but it wasn't generated in PHP and was just a simple HTML file ( think of having an empty search result on Shuu ). Let me say that this is one of the most basic stuff student learn in PHP and is almost the first lesson if not the first. Myself I could do it in a just a few minutes, but I had to give out some task, just to be fair. Considering the level, I decided to go with this VERY easy task, but I had redo pretty much all the job. Even if it takes an handful of minutes for me to do it, I feel like I'm getting dragged down.

Worst is I'm sharing credits over this work, especially since I have already spent over 12 hours of my free time to get this module running like it should, and they must have spent like, 1 hour maximum, considering what I have given out, not that I can give complicated task... Sadly, I'm the patient type, and quite stoic but since I'm posting here, I guess my patience is running out, and that's not good.

I just finished Shakugan no Shana, season 3.

... Spoilers. Highlight to view content.

I confess. The ending as happy as it was, put me to tears. Happy ones of course. But it felt a bit awkward. Existing, yet nonexistent. The new world was barely presented. If at all.

The plot in general was good. Everybody wins, yet no one actually wins. Because it's not about winning or losing. It's simply wishing. And a God making the wishes true. But something just caught me. It's like... I enjoyed the "bad" side more than the "good side". It's... yes. Yuji's philosophy. I don't want to boast or anything, but we're pretty much the same. Yuji and I. Only that he is more of a human than I.

Truth be told, I hoped that the God of Creation and Yuji would win against "the good". And it kind of happened like that. Except, as I said/typed before, there was no winner and loser.

Something else that surprised me was Johan and Pheles. I kind of expect Kazumi to use that thing Pheles gave her. But I expect another ending at first (only after I thought of the possibilities for an ending with that item, came the wish for the "bad" to win over the "good"). I really didn't expect Johan to come out like that. And the most surprising thing was... well ... their love... and their child. This kind of shocked me. But oh well. Hope for the anime world restored? I don't know.

Also, a romantic ending for Satou and Margery. Well I kind of expected some romantic ending there. But that was... out of my imagination. I enjoyed this a lot.


...

But seriously, I did not expect such a plot for an anime. The entire season 3 surprised me.


Well aside from that, I have no idea what to write.

It's a project in which I don't choose my group, otherwise I would just work with friends I know to be efficient.

I pretty much chose this search module because I knew that if it wasn't me doing it, no one would be able to pull it out properly and in time ( except assistant chief but he was needed on another module as well ). I might be in the 4th year of engineering, but fact is that a large part of my class aren't even worthy of being there. Pretty easy to pass each year. What I gave out can be done by, 1st year…


After recalculing, I'm in fact nearer the 20 hours of free time spent. Anyway, after discussing with the assistant chief ( because the chief is letting matters a bit out of her hands moreover ), next module I will have will be easier so that I can handle it alone.

Well at least youre not sharing your skills. They will get their due once they go out into the world and realize they didn't actually learn anything at school.

I eat in the hallway with my friends during lunch, and right across from us is like big group of "skater" boys.
They don't even skate.
They have heelie shoes, and they smash into **** and it makes me laugh.
I find there pain amusing.

So after a year of just watching them, and these guys are freshman..
The freshman at my school just get worse every year.
They've started to play like games, like one of them was chasing each with WATER GUNS.
They got tired of that, so now they just hit each other in the balls.
Seriously.


I think they just want a excuse to touch each other balls now, okay, because it's getting ridiculous.
They sit with like a couple of girls, and there way of flirting with them is literally spraying the girls with water guns.
.....



I pray that god with give me the strength to not choke any of them.
I need you guys to pray for me, because god knows I'm going to just trip one of them.
I would love to see them just fly out a window from those god damn heelie shoes.
It doesn't matter how I do it, I will eventually do it.


Peace and blessins, peace and blessins

Do it. Do it tomorrow. Just do it. Haha. Hahahahahaha. Get a knife, slice their throat in a spectacular way! Make sure to throw the knife towards the last one. So the scene would get even more awesome!

Sometimes, you scare me, Tensa.

As for your "skater" boy annoyances, BamBam;, I say just ignore or avoid them as best you can. Easier said than done, I suppose. But if the only thing you want to do is punch them in the face when you see them, it's best not to get involved. Besides, if they hurt themselves from doing stupid things then it's their own fault, and maybe, just maybe, they'll then learn something. Sometimes, that's the only way to learn.

Step one: Take the roller skates.

Step two: Use them to beat them into smart people.



Me, well, I spent the whole day shopping with Meagan. I realized she is the prettiest woman in my eyes. And even though she's only nineteen, she'll make a perfect mother. Everything about her is perfect. Everything.

Hey, Aizawa! I'm glad to hear from you, 'cause last time you posted you were talking about the tornadoes forming in your area. I heard they were really nasty. Did you and your family make it through unscathed?
