This is the first "blog" of any kind I've ever had, so it's probably not the greatest...

Just a little snippet about me:

I'd like to consider myself relatively tech-savvy; obviously I use Linux (Arch to be precise; K.I.S.S. FTW), and I enjoy learning new things about computers in general (both software and hardware-related).

This blog is mostly just for whenever I feel like telling the world about my experiences with computers/Linux (or just life in general), or just posting for the hell of it.

The five-letter F word

Tags awkward, weird

I know it's been forever since I've posted here, but I figure this is something I really need to get off my chest:
  • It's an English word.
  • You type it by striking three keys once and one key twice.
  • As an adjective, it's harmless. As a noun, it has rather…odd connotations amongst the majority. O_o
  • There are entire websites dedicated to the "fad"/"meme"/"subculture"/"whatever-you-want-to-call-it".*
  • It has moderately to do with this post.

Everything outside "the norm" is a disease/disorder now…

Tags awkward, rant, weird

Blargh. Yet another rant. I swear, the "rant" tag in my tag cloud is gonna get so big as to totally obscure the other ones eventually…


I know I probably spend way too much time on and/or put way too much stock into Wikipedia, but I just got done reading the article on "Medicalization", and I must say, that seems to be the way things are going (at least here in the US): basically a pill for everything that "cures what ails...

Please tell me I'm not weird...

I don't know why I'm posting this...

I seriously feel like a creep. No, really.

Go ahead, laugh. ...or do whatever it is you do when you see someone post something so amazingly immature (e.g. eyebrow raise, head shake, sigh, any combination of the three, etc.).

I'm @#$%ing 19 years old and still have a soft spot for cartoons, particularly anthropomorphized animals...tell me that...

Culture shock, maybe?

Maybe I'm just stereotyping (and please forgive me if I am), but I get the impression that many programmers are very...err...shall we say "negative" when it comes to the old "free will vs. determinism" thing, i.e. they tend to lean towards the latter...

To me this is perfectly understandable: if you're doing something like programming, you've got to have a very logical mindset, and I suppose that if you applied this mindset to life in general, it would tend to...

Apology re: problems leaking out into forums

I've decided that I'm going to either a) take a break from LQ for a while (and I really mean it this time), or b) try to actually contribute more useful content to the forums (I've been spending way too much time in /General lately ).

I figure that if I'm going to be posting anything about religion/faith, existentialism, philosophy, or whatever other topics that I find "sensitive", it'll be either here (in this blog) or just not at all.

So I'd like to just...
