  • (Originally available on the now-defunct NFT Zu website) (2018 Edit: I found this in my WordPress drafts folder, not sure why it wasn't published when I first imported it. It's true it was on my old site, but I can not find a reliable indicator of what date it was published. So I will publish it with an arbitrarily chosen date of March 1, 2002.) Officially, this rant should be available upon the re-opening of the NFT Zu webpage, version 4.something. As much as I'd like to babble on about anime or fanfiction, several of my associates here at the

    Website updates: New text files in features section! Ack... haven't been doing much lately. My time has been consumed by the evil monster that is Sierra's Betrayal at Krondor. It's an RPG based on Raymond Feist's Riftwar series of books. Haven't read the books myself, but the game is well done, and is still enjoyable despite its age (I think it was released in '92 or such). The game was released by Sierra as freeware to promote the sequel, and it can be downloaded at happypuppy.com The other thing I've been doing, is trying to catch up on my board

    Updates: Added Square NES ROMs, Programming section, updated links. Went back to text-based navigation. While image navigation is nice, it's hard to update and slow-loading. Added links to funtrivia trivia quizzes. It's been a slow couple of days really. Some board reviewing, sporadic Japanese learning. Finished DW7 a couple of nights ago β€” finally! Currently playing on PS: Ehrgeiz Quest Mode! Kinda tough, tho. For the NES, a discussion on FFFade me download a whole bunch of Square NES ROMs! Also been playing a lot of Megaman! (finished 1 and 2 already, on my way with 3) Job fair next

    For some reason, I keep wanting to update this site. I'm actually doing this more often than studying for the board, studying game development, studying Japanese or writing anything else. I wonder why? Anyway, I added a humor page and a special "Who Am I?" page. Check 'em out. Also the Anime ROMs site should be fully operational by now. So I went and saw Lord of the Rings last Friday. As everyone expected, it was an excellent movie, and the theater was jam packed. We had to use all our mighty skills to get seats. Even my first brother,

    Hopefully, the site is now Netscape-safe... Uploaded more stuff today: I put up an ECE Board Exam Reviewer β€” it's a software that helps me review for the upcoming ECE boards. It's in the files section. I really should add that to the list of resolutions: WILL STUDY FOR BOARD EXAM! I also decided to renovate and re-use the geocities site so I put up an Anime ROMs site there. I wanted to put up the Anime ROMs before, but I was worried about what Topcities might do, since Ihaven't heard anything about what they do to copyright violations on

    Well... you learn something new everyday! And today I learned that Netscape is very strict about HTML coding. Unclosed tags will screw up even the simplest of web pages! Spent quite some time rewriting the HTML to be Netscape friendly...

    Changed the layout even more! Added a start page containing the menu only, so that visitors wouldn't have to listen to me ranting all the time. Uploaded some stuff, since my COMPUTER IS PROBABLY GOING TO DIE SOON! It's on its last legs... I can feel it. Over the next couple of days I'll probably be uploading stuff that I don't have backed up elsewhere. For now the only new upload is a bunch of high school pics. See the Files section for more. Towards my resolutions: I went on over to FF.net to see if the last fic (Nobody

    New Year's Resolutions: Write more. Fanfiction, original works, whatnot. I need to shape up my writing skills. Devote more time to game development. My interest sort of waned after a certain group project I was on fizzled out, but I'm gonna get back on track.
