JOURNAL: Ryochan7 (Travis Nickles)

  • Finally have broadband! 2002-08-04 09:31:35 After months of waiting I finally have another thing that I originally made my computer for: high speed cable internet. I just Insightbb yesterday and I have been downloading videos and other stuff like there is no tomorrow. Maybe now I will be able to participate in the forums more than I have been recently. As for making a video, I have abandoned all my ideas for videos because I just don't have any personal interest in the would be videos anymore. Besides, my sister's video is still doing fairly well. 381 people have downloaded it but only one person has posted an opinion. Of everything that I have done with broadband so far, the best thing that I have downloaded would have to be Aluminum Studios' video "Try." It is by far the best video I have ever seen. It would have taken forever for me to download the video with my now old 56k modem and AOL account.

    Nothing else has really gone on in my life. I probably should start thinking of some idea for an AMV so I can finally make some contribution to this site. Later. 
  • Come to the back of the boat! 2002-07-18 06:11:18 Hello out there, once again. As always, I have nothing better to do than post in my journal. Now it is time for me to describe my boring week. I have just recently moved into a new house in a non-ghetto neighborhood, thank god. I have already had to deal with some preps in the neighborhood. Someone was so stuckup that the person decided to throw a live firecracker at me and then drive away, like a freakin' coward. Other than that, I have bought a DVD-ROM drive for my computer so that I can actually make AMVs, whenever I feel like making one. My sister, aka member Weaselyone, has already made an AMV and has posted it on this site. The video is Cookie Karaoke and it is listed under my name because she messed up when she entered her video, so I ended up getting credit for it. Cookie Karaoke is not available to download right now because my sis has exceeded the maximum bandwidth for every server that she has put it on, which would be Geocities and Angelfire. As I always say, that is about it for now. Later on.  
  • Killa, New Computer. 2002-06-24 03:25:44 These past few weeks have been a bore. I have had no money to go anywhere or do anything. However, I have played with my new computer for a while and I like it. I just got the last part I needed for my computer last week (the motherboard) and everything is running just fine. I won't be able to make any music videos until I get a capture card, so I have been messing around (mostly playing GTAIII). Well, at least I don't have to deal with crappy Rent-A-Center computer anymore. That's about it for now. Just because I have nothing else to do, I will leave you with a description of my new computer. Ja mata ne.

  • Come here and play. 2002-06-05 22:45:46 This is my first day as a member and people actually care, cool. I have already been declared a "stupid newbie" in the forums. Besides being bored through most of the day I finally beat Kraken in Golden Sun. I was stuck for months on that one boss, but I finally beat it and I can continue my GS journey. My whole summer vacation seems to be speeding right past me, even though I have only been on vacation for a week. Most of my time will now be spent here chillin' on the forums. I hope to meet many of the people that read this in the forums sooner or later.

    People who read this have way too much free time. Mata ne.
