Its going to be a pretty brief rant. But Facebook. Wow. Its such a powerful double edged sword these days that there should be laws about posting on your wall. I have ten types of people I usually remove from my list as soon as possible.

1. Haters
The number one person that will ruin your day. Haters hate everything. Hate their job, hate their life, hate this, hate that. Cometh the day they hate their penis is the day you can click Unfriend.

2. Whiners
Just as bad. Not to sound demeaning because everyone will whine once in a while. But all the time? Time to mute that dude.

3. Speaking in cliche
They just make my skin cringe. I don't know why. Say something original might help. But if they keep saying one sided jokes, its tempting to just remove them.

4. Wall flooders
In their own right, its nothing big a deal. But it gets overwhelming if they play 50 different Facebook games and they all want to recruit you for something.

5. Friends who think they're cool
False pride. This MAY double count as a Hater because they think they're so cool, what they say is law. Today you shall all hate things with feathers! I get to decide that, thanks.

6. Weaponizers
Odd, isn't it. People using Facebook as a weapon against people who offended them. Its almost as bad as a Hater, only that you get this so infrequently that you tend to miss them. But the tell-tale signs are obvious: they usually whine a lot, and speak to an unknown third person about something that looks vaguely like what just happened to you.

7. The misguided
They think they're your friend. Only that they just blew you off moments ago. Why are we still adding them as friends?

8. Enemies
This is a weeeeeeeeeiiiiiirrrddd one. Do they really think we would just add them so they can spy on our lives? Wait, did you just add one by mistake?

9. Chatterboxes
They blast 200 status changes in a go such that they push away all the fun videos your friends shared. That's truly annoying.

10. Random People
How did you even click ADD on this dude? Remove them already!

Back to pruning my friends list.

This blog is collecting rust, but I wanna write stuff here in case I forget.

You can't embed pictures dynamically at runtime, because embedding happens at compile time ONLY. So you need tangible metadata for Flash to read. Not Embed x.toString, because at compile time, x.toString gives shit.

The workaround would be to throw everything into a zip, and then embed that zip. Just make sure the zip file is around during compile time. The contents, however, are free for you to change.

You will now ask. Why would I want to embed a zip file with content that is not fixed?

My answer? Slideshows. Saves the rewriting over and over again.

As for how to do all these, I'll leave it till I have time to do a full run down. Meanwhile, google how to read a zip file in Flash.

If you are not prepared to be wrong, you will never achieve anything.

Wise words, but there's another add on:

Being creative is not just being different. It is being correctly different. Because saying 2 + 2 = 5 is wrong. Saying 2.1 + 2.1 = 4 would be closer.

The seven swords of 00.

And I'm definitely not getting the 00 Seven Swords. I got seven already.

Its finally here! After 3 weeks! That bloody GN Sword III is delivered!

And I finished it in 10 minutes.

In case anyone was wondering, or some dude was like me 3 weeks ago, I bought that GN sword from HLJ via parts purchase. The sword along with the beam attachment costed 900 yen, while the shipping was 880 yen. =/ Bandai conveniently left out the GN Sword III so that suckers will buy the entire 00 Raiser again.

3 weeks of anxiety over in 10 minutes.

Life is such a bitch.

I did it. I fell to temptation.

Now I bought the Avalanche Exia and now 64 dollars poorer. Sure it had great articulation of joints, and it had big ass rocket thrusters (THRUST!) but it doesn't help that I'm in need of money now.
