Time oh time yes I need more Time, Online Life, Family, Culture and Ethics

Posted on by Benjamin Southall

Hello everyone,

A number of changes will be happening to the write style of my blog. It will be come more weird and unusual, less clear and narrative and filled with more whimsical crazy things that I do or come across. Blog hasn’t been updated in a while, unfortunately. This is because of switching servers, downtime and lack of clarity and inspiration. (I wanted to update so much during the downtime but couldn’t.)

UNI

University is going great, onto the second semester exams now. Already completed OOP (Object Orientated Programming) exam, just have to study for the rest of them. (mainly mathematics). Also I have being stealing unis (uniforms) as a covert operativke in Enemy Territory on Internode and GameArena servers, however I make a much better medic or engineer.

Jobsearch

I am currently looking for part time or full time employment over the summer break, somewhere in the IT industry. I would prefer Linux or System Admin work that I can do remotely, but wouldn’t mind any programming or web development offers either. I also applying for 2 jobs. (SEEK finally became useful.) I made a resume site for 002, I might upload it after I have tidied it up.

Celebrations

I have recently attended a 50th Wedding Anniversary and 77th birthday. Both kept me busy but where quiet enjoyable. I got to watch the parents of one of my life’s biggest role models undergo and celebrate their golden wedding anniversary, to try on my new suit (no pictures yet).

I also got to attend a family get together for my grandmother’s birthday. While I did spend expansive amounts of time, appending more pictures to the powerpoint presentation (2nd time I felt kind of like a utility belt, first was at an 18th where I was only useful due to my torch and swiss army knife).I have also been organising my 18th Birthday. Invitations have been sent out, most people have RSVPed.

The rest can get a move on. Reasons to attend include: it will be fun or it sounds like fun according to most people who can’t make it or are attending, you get to see and possibly laugh at me in my new suit, you get to create a wonderful memory etc.

Online Life, Family, Culture and Ethics

Life should not be split up in RL (real life) on OLL (online life), they should have a super and sub set relationship. I have been back on LMM(Linux Movie Mania) and realised how much of a family it is. I encourage Wine to get WinMX working with WINE again, so my experience can be better.

In numerous online environments whether they be a chatroom or IRC channel, a forum , a gameserver or a MMORPG there are rules and ethical requirements of the people invovled, these environments foster online or net culture which helps foster and develop the online communities that make OLL and RL more enjoyable.

That is right n00bs, ET servers have ethics, Forums have ethics, Runescape has ethics, IRC has ethics. I used to play Runescape, I played since classic when the ethics and manners were still in common usage and the n00b count wasn’t devastating Runescape, like Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans. Runescape is has been culturally raped by n00bs and isn’t worth playing, between the member and free player bickering, the spammers, the scammers and the lazy and rude individuals that live for the flame it has becoming a MMORPG hell.

To GNAA and other IRC Trolls go back to UseNet and flame there, you are a waste of space on the internet. I also came across grouphug.us and read the confessions of offline or real life people some of which where n00bs, it either sickened me or made me laugh.

My message to all n00bs is Get some manners ! Get some culture ! Get some respect ! Stop being so expletive selfish! Get some intelligence ! and if you can’t do that then at least have the decency to stay away from those who can. (permanently through suicide would be nice. 😉 ) In life if you are not part of the solution you are part of the problem.
To most of the people on Grouphug.us get some counseling, it isn’t guaranteed to fix your situations, but it definitely won’t damage them. Failing that get some chicken soup.

BassHunter

I want to personally congratulate BassHunter of his successful integration of Net culture into music. Thank you for Boten Anna and the Dota Song. As a tribute to your efforts and due to the fact I had your song stuck in my head, here is the QUT version that I came up with.

“We’re sitting in the Greenroom, sick of playing DotA.
I hear you man!

“We’re sitting in the Greenroom, sick of playing DotA.
I feel you man!

“We’re sitting in the Greenroom, sick of playing DotA.
We got assignments todo and lectures to gota(goto)
“We’re sitting in the Greenroom, sick of playing DotA.
Our net is very slow, we need to buy more quota

Lets get it on!

“We’re sitting in the Greenroom, sick of playing DotA.
We got assignments todo and lectures to gota(goto)
“We’re sitting in the Greenroom, sick of playing DotA.
C# and ASP.net irritate even the leetest coder

Have one on the house!

“We’re sitting in the Greenroom, sick of playing DotA.
I hear you man!

“We’re sitting in the Greenroom, sick of playing DotA.
I feel you man!

“We’re sitting in the Greenroom, sick of playing DotA.
That’s more like it
“We’re sitting in the Greenroom, sick of playing DotA.
Excellent choice.

“We’re sitting in the Greenroom, sick of playing DotA.
We got assignments todo and lectures to gota(goto)
“We’re sitting in the Greenroom, sick of playing DotA.
Our net is very slow, we need to buy more quota

Lets get it on!

“We’re sitting in the Greenroom, sick of playing DotA.
We got assignments todo and lectures to gota(goto)
“We’re sitting in the Greenroom, sick of playing DotA.
C# and ASP.net irritate even the leetest coder

“We’re sitting in the Greenroom, sick of playing DotA.
We got assignments todo and lectures to gota(goto)
“We’re sitting in the Greenroom, sick of playing DotA.
Our net is very slow, we need to buy more quota

Don’t worry be happy!

I will have the recording done sometime soon and comments regarding the lyrics are welcome.

Timing and Everyone has gone to war
On the subject of music, Nerina Pallot has a great song Everyone has gone to war. The music video is available here . The timing and relevance for this song is impeccable . Also while I am Youtube linking the creator of Foamy has some pretty interesting suggestions to solve some of humanity’s problems, his solutions and opinions while judgmental, ruthless and other not positive are despite this logically sound. (Will contain swearing)

Hah I know that feeling; I can imagine it’s as soon as you can’t update your blog, you get all the inspiration and ideas to have the personal capability, but your outlet is gone. I am the same way with everything. Even if its something small like being on the train with no pen or paper or computer, I get the inspiration for a short story, poem, song, article, or even an idea of what i want to do tomorrow. But of course i’ll forget it.

Nice lyrics though, I havn’t written any in way too long. And by the way, I think your writing was even clearer this post, contradicting your statement regarding your own writing style changes :-). How’s your break going now?
