Tamasys' Blog

I was talking to Ozzyfrog the other say at an obscenely late hour, as we are wont to do. He mentioned that The Games Season 2 was out on DVD. This caused me to remember the episode when they can’t turn the computer on because it is voice activated, and, being me, I thought about how old the laptop looked. Then I remembered why. It is from the year 2000. “That wasn’t too long ago”, we try to convince ourselves. But, my friends, we couldn’t be more wrong. 2000 was a very long time ago – just shy of 10 years in fact. This disturbed me, and so we began listing things that have changed.

Some examples were:

  • The only Google product in existence was Google Search
    • That means no YouTube, Gmail, Google Docs, Google Earth etc.
  • Windows 2000 was about to be released – XP, Vista, and 7 would not be released for several years
  • George W. Bush had never been President
  • The iPod did not exist
  • MySpace did not exist
  • Facebook did not exist
  • Wikipedia did not exist
  • Mac OS X would not be released for another year
  • The PlayStation was still being manufactured, with the PlayStation 2 about to be released
  • The Game Boy Advance was still another year off

I was very surprised by all this, so I went to sleep.

So, what do you think of that lot? Please comment with anything you feel should have been mentioned :).

This is mostly a filler post so my blog doesn’t shrivel up and die.
Anyway, I was just looking at my blog, and noticed that

  • About a year ago, I posted about how I had to wade through 43 RSS posts. WEAK. I currently have over 1000 in the backlog. My God, people write a lot…
  • The current top search for my blog is “who is gizmolio”, which I find odd…
  • I have posted a total of twice this year (thrice, now), which is very naughty of me. I blame school – really, I do. There is far too much to do in VCE, and not enough pointless thinking time. That’s the problem…

Well, I am working on another blog post, so I hope that you will forgive me for being a very bad blogger. Au revoir.

Where is all that dust coming from? Oh, yes, that’s right… the forgotten place that is my blog.

I would say that I have been busy, but that isn’t entirely true. While there has been a lot to do, there has also been enough free time for me to… oh, I don’t know… write a book! Actually, that is something I have been putting off as well

I had exams last two weeks ago, so that is a legitimate reason. However, I have not had exams the whole year, so that excuse goes flying out the window.

I have had quite a bit of homework over the year, but, as I said, not enough to stop me playing video games, watching murder mysteries, reading books, tipping cows, and going to air shows.

Hmm… I really don’t have any excuse to not have blogged. Look at ozzyfrog! He has written heaps! Oh well, I am writing one now, so I suppose all is forgiven.

I had a really interesting post in mind when I started writing this… six hours ago. This is the extent of my procrastination. Oh dear. I will really have to work on that…

I think that I will write another post when I remember what it was I was writing about. For now, goodnight.

Tonight is New Year’s Eve, and unfortunately I will not be staying up. This is because the following morning I am getting up nice and early so that we can get to the airport on time, as we are leaving for our holiday in Queensland :D. I might be able to get internet up there, but then again I might not, so it is possible that I won’t be able to post again for quite a while. This is bad, so I must leave you with something interesting. Hmm… The Game. No, not that game. Not the one which you just lost. Just an interesting, albeit odd and sick, game shown to me by Bluemonkey…

ONOZ! I have been neglecting to blog again! I had a bunch to write about the other day, but none of it seems very exciting any more… Anyway, the other day, I was checking my blog stats, and I noticed that my views had spiked. On closer inspection, I found that almost all of them had come from http://alphainventions.com. I went and visited the site, and I liked it a lot. On the main page, there is a frame showing the most recently updated blogs on WordPress, Blogger, and whatever that Microsoft one is… I can’t be bothered looking up the name… Anyway, it is really great for finding new blogs – when you see one you like appear, just click the pause button to stop the flow of updates. In other news, the Lair of Tamasys has been down for the past two days on account of the fact that we moved the router and I haven’t reattached the Ethernet cable. Lazy me. Anyway, must dash, it is late. Merry Christmas to all two of you who bother to read my blog and have a good day 😀

EDIT: I forgot to tell you what the title meant – it stands for Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Blogs. Because I was neglecting my blog, geddit? (My God, I hate peope who say “geddit”…)

ANOTHER EDIT: There were a plethora of spelling errors in this post (the result of trying to blog from an iPod…), but they are all fixed now.

For the next three days I will be staying in Halls Gap. I’m hoping it will be fun. We’ll be walking a lot, and I won’t have any internet! Therefore I won’t be able to blog or work on the Lair. Sorry about that…
Anyway, I will see you all when I get back 😀

Hi There!

I know that I don’t usually start my posts with a greeting, but there you go.

Anyway, I am thinking about and planning a new project for the Lair, which will be very exciting. I can’t wait.

If anyone has experience with PHP, MySQL, and web design, I would love to hear from you! I know a bit, but not masses, so it would be great to work on this with someone.

For now, the project is a secret, but if you read the homepage of the Lair recently you will know what it is…

Anyway, I’m off to continue posting on the Fourm.

P.S. The Any Key has a new comic out, Click.
