Some people seek justice so persistent, that they will do great injustice themselves.

The world was supposed to end today. Did anybody notice anything different? Or did the world end without me noticing? :P

It is about time that they went full 3D with the Pokemon franchise. Though, I wonder if the two games will feature ALL the Pokemon among them instead of having to transfer from the GBA to the DS to the 3DS where required.

The starters keep getting weirder and weirder.

I've long since passed on the Pokemon series. So I won't be getting either of them.

...This is gonna take a while...

I heard stories that when you set up RAID 1 that it might wipe the origin drive, so I'm not taking chances...

For those that don't know, my F drive contains anything I have pertaining to Matt Groening, including three different versions of WOTS.

Well it's not proper RAID 1 like I had hoped since Windows wont work with it being USB.

I downloaded a third party program and it'll schedule a backup for me instead at midnight, by copying the files and if not, it should catch up when I sign back onto my machine. I shouldn't have to pay another £237 to have a drive recovered again now that I have scheduled backups.

Yeah, okay, this line was hilarious.

AnderZEL: Zombie with paper?
VintageBeef: He had a note for you.
AnderZEL: Heh, yeah!
PauseUnpause: There's no note, it just says "Paper"
AnderZEL: "Zombie can't go to the Mindcrack server today because he is sick, signed Zombie's Momma". I promise that's what it said, I read it.
VintageBeef: That's awesome.
AnderZEL: It was in Swedish.
VintageBeef: "Signed Zombie's Momma"

I've seen my fair share of shitty video games, such as Big Rigs Over the Road Racing, ET, Superman 64 and Sonic 06 to name a few. But a couple days ago, a new game was released called Final Fantasy: All the Bravest and it's one of the shittiest games I've seen to the point where you could say it offends me, and I haven't even bought the game and I still feel justified enough to say that.

In the game, which costs £2.50 for iPhone by the way, you swipe your finger across the screen to send your party to attack. That is it. You can't select which enemy, or which attack, that's done at random.

And the worst part about it is that when your characters die, in one hit I might add, you have to wait 3 minutes IN REAL TIME, for them to revive themselves. Given that you can have a party of 30 characters, that's an hour and a half. Sure, you could buy a Gold Hourglass to revive your entire party at once, thing is, THOSE COST SIXTY NINE PENCE for three. Which doesn't sound like a lot, but it adds up especially when there are enemies that are programmed to kill your entire party before you can slide your finger fast enough.

You could also buy "Premium Characters" such as Terra from Final Fantasy VI, Cloud from Final Fantasy VII or Squall from Final Fantasy VIII, yes buy, they also cost 69p per character, but the worst part is you can't select which character you want they're picked at random. So I could want Squall or Auron but get a Pig or Vaan instead. Meaning that it could be possible that I'd end up buying all 35 to get the character I want.

Lastly there are three extra worlds you can buy from VII, X and XIII. Those cost as much as the entire game, £2.50.

Square Enix could've had a nice game here. But they insulted the fans with the money-grubbing tactics.

For some reason one of my folders has started displaying all its subfolders and prohibiting me from creating new folders within, and I can't figure out how to turn it off. It started when I resorted the files in a completely different folder on the same drive. Also, it seems to be specific to the one folder path... I fear the worst.
EDIT: It appears to be a side-effect of sorting, and when I sort by date it displays all files categorized by day. Again it only seems to affect the one folder...

EDIT2: I don't know whose idea it was to give the "My Documents" folder and the rest of the harddrive different file systems, but whoever did deserves to be eaten by Rumia while wearing the Double Pain badge and the All-Night mask for thinking it was a good idea.

No folder has different file systems from another. It's actually impossible for that to happen, otherwise, they'd be operating systems of their own.

They can however have different properties. In the example of my documents it generally has read-write permissions on Admins and the Owner.

When an issue arises such as that, check to make sure you have the appropriate permissions to do what you want to be able to do. Linux's permission system is easy to understand can be adapted for Windows in terms of human understanding. Of course, the programming between Windows and Linux is different.

By clicking "No" when you're dragging a folder into a folder that contains another folder with the same name as the one you're dragging...

That's part of Computing for Dummies 101.

No, by folder merging I meant a folder displaying the contents of its subfolders.

Also, I figured out I can sort files by doing it in a folder with no subfolders, and they all share the same setting.



EDIT: Also, because I watched this I'm being recommended Teller-FUCKING-Tabblies (124 points if you figure out how that even works!)

How do I remove a phantom disk drive? I've googled it but I'm only getting DVD burners...


Maybe I'll just do a format & reinstall...
