Weirdo

Journal Entry: Sun Dec 10, 2006, 4:45 PM
 

 

 


[ Hey! Big Athens devMEET on the 17th! Will you be there? ]




You know you're weird when you...

1) Spend more money for milk than anything else.

2) Put sprite in your spaghetti and expect it to taste good.

3) Find Dan Radcliffe extremely hot in that deviation.

4) Spend some time almost every other day, either logged in or logged out, modifying Wikipedia the past two years.

5) Enjoy reading Whitehead's and Russel's Principia Mathematica.

6) Have been working on too many new features for deviantART and miss the bug-busting weeks we used to have. And then again you're so happy that you can spend a few days working on bugs again.

7) Really believe that one day you will become famous because of one of your projects.

8) Identify with Alex from Elephant.

9) Celebrate Peter Pan as your mascot because you want to stay a boy forever.

10) Think that you will be the last to die in this world.

11) Always have a browser tab open in some php.net page.

12) Enjoy doing push-ups in the middle of crowded streets.

13) Would kill, if you knew you'd never be caught.

14) Sometimes believe in magic.

15) Find reading a good SQL query better than sex.

16) Have tried to read and understand how the JavaScript code from Gmail works (and succeeded).

17) Are a developer and like hexentanz.

18) Among your computers, 3 are connected to the Internet, all sharing one dial-up connection.

19) Don't like sports or games involving balls.

20) Your name is Διονύσης.

21) Are writing a why-am-I-weird list of 50 items.

22) Are convinced that any number multiplied with e + 1 gives zero as the result.

23) Like Heidi's bad your-mom jokes.

24) Are 19 and will still write a letter to Santa Claus this year.

25) Are in love with a fictional 12-year-old boy.

26) Are obsessed with code formatting standards. And try to force it to other members of your teams.

27) All your furniture is from IKEA.

28) Would prefer to starve to death instead of dying peacefully in your bed from a heart attack.

29) Find Roxas the sexiest character ever created.

30) Find yourself woken up by strangers ringing your bell persistently who disappear as soon as you try to see who they are.

31) Have a great adoration towards statistics.

32) Have been practicing the art of Parkour for more than a year, and still enjoy it more and more every day.

33) And enjoy the company more than the actual sport.

34) Have a blog in a blogging system you've made yourself.

35) Use an mp3 player that you've made yourself (that runs on a web interface).

36) Use a PHP debugger that you've made yourself.

37) Prefer to implement something from scratch rather than use something already created by others, for the sake of learning how to build it.

38) Hence, you've created your own database layer for PHP, instead of using one of the many available.

39) Like metaprogramming.

40) Usually chat in Greek using Greek and not Greeklish.

41) Find it astonishingly amusing when two consequent svn commits of yours get non-sequential revision numbers.

42) Own a ring that is often mistaken for Isildur's Bane, but is in fact just a ring with Elvish carvings.

43) Often use 21 candles (or more) instead of electricity to illuminate your lab.

44) Would pay $100 for a good name.

45) People exclaim "shouldn't you be locked in a server room!" when they see you on dAmn.

46) Try to type using the wrong keyboard (not the one connected to the computer you're looking at), and you go like "why isn't it typing....."

47) Have named one of your teddy-bears Hephaestion.

48) Will spend new year's eve installing the new version of Excalibur on Chit-Chat (because nobody will be online on that time to notice the downtime).

49) Several of your poems (and prose) can be linked with each other through several symbols and points, leading to a totally different meaning sometimes.

50) Have made your own fictional programming language that was never implemented, yet was used in non-usable examples and documented.

~ Me! Me! I enjoy reading "Principia Mathematica". Although: (1) while I have a mathematical approach on things, I'm generally consider a hater of math and (2) I'm more of a fan of his "Why am I not a Christian?"... :)

~ #7 is also a goer for me, although I don't just believe. I act!

~ On #13. I would kill even if I was to get caught. And to get more philosophical - everyone could and would kill, if the circumstances demanded it.

~ On #19. I don't enjoy football, basketball and other similar group sports? Does that count? 'Cause I like tennis and cricket (a for sports with balls) and fencing/riding and shooting (as sports in general - I also am skilled in all three, or so they say)

~ On#27. SOME of my furniture is from IKEA. And to tell you the truth, when I get a place of my own and modify it the way I want to, I'll commission some furniture made on IKEA designs, only using some quality wood for a change. Maybe...

~ On #40. No, but I often chat in reek using English and in Russian using Russian and not Russlish.

~ On #42. No, but I do own a signet ring with the family coat-of-arms (coronet included).

~ On #44. Would ask 1,000,000 for my own name!

Speaking of your blog, it insists that Safari (WebKit/Konqueror) is not supported and refuses to load (even when I click "try anyway"). However, when I masquerade as IE 6 by changing the user agent, it works fine... Maybe it could be a little less agressive?

On a different note...

I'm strange because I drink Diet Coke like most people do water.

And I agree so very much about the programming style, though I mostly work in markup and scripting languages, as it's not really my focus... It's like proper grammar in a spoken language.

The keyboard issue gets especially complicated with laptops...

Yes, the blogging system is kind of aggressive, and since it's still in Alpha we don't want it to look weird in different browsers...

I can relate to the Keyboard one and I would love to make up my own programming language (and spoken language). I would so kill if I would never get caught oh yeah just the fun of shooting someone :evillaugh: I'm efil. I would also love to become famous for some project I did online, no chance there for me though heh.

Some of the stuff you said was freaky though but there we go :lol: :wave:

Yay for the programming style, I can't believe some people still don't get that >.< Then again that's one reason I stay clear of PHP, how do you keep a good programming style when you have HTML code and PHP and you want the HTML code to be indented correctly when a user hits Ctrl+U and the PHP to look good when you open up the source? Stupid PHP...

Just stay clean in PHP and don't worry about what the user sees?

You pipe the HTML produced by the PHP through htmltidy or something? =P I thought most large web companies these days were putting their HTML/CSS through compression before it gets sent out over the web not tidying... But I guess you guys can afford the bandwidth :)

Okay, i'm called werid all the time, so i thought i might compare me to you. let's see the weirdness difference :F

1) um, i drink alot of it.
2) :puke:
3) If he's the dude outa Harry Potter, then no.
4) mm.. i only edit one wiki occasionally.
5) Never read it.
6) <3 (for the dA features)
7) Yeah, i reckon you will, but i won't
8) Elephant? (i guess i should read your link.)
9) Right..
10) Never!
11) nope, i don't do hard code programming (i'm a soft core person.)
12) lol that would be fun!
13) um, i don't really understand the concept in that.
14) Never! it's just lights and smoke
15) i haven't had sex, so i can't compare them :F
16) Could you teach me (pretty please!?)
17) Yeah, i guess i could call myself a developer, but no, i don't like hex.
18) ouch! i know the pain (i have 5 or six computers in the place i'm living, and we had dial up...)
19) You kidding, they're the best ones (apart from "football" [aussie])
20) Okay, i don;t speak greek, nor read it...
21) Yeah, that usually make you werid (and to think of it that i'm comparing myself against you :F)
22) wow, thats way... to advanced for me.
23) Your-mum! :F
24) um... i left santa behind at 10 :F
25) creepy :fear:
26) Yep, that would be me!
27) Um, no mine isn't, though the closest ikea store to me is about 200km's away.
28) Thats a little creepy.
29) Is he outa... um... KingdomHearts (no offence if i get this wrong..)
30) Easy, set up a mini video camare at your front door, you can get one for about 10 bucks.
31) So you like cold hard numbers?
32) I wouldn't have a clue what that sport(?) is
33) Thats understandable, i gues :F
34) nifty, is it opensource?
35) cool, could i get it to plug into a web desktop?
36) How do you know it works?
37) Yeah, i do that... :ninja:
38) ouch! how long did that take?
39) Whats that? please do tell :)
40) okay so you chat in one language and not the other (big deal)
41) wtf?
42) So you like lord of the rings a bit too much maybe?
43) okay, so why candles (are the those smelly ones?)
44) What do you mean? dionyziz is cool (even though i don;t know what it means)
45) Um... to tell you the truth, i've never seen you in dAmn
46) Thats some we all do in a jungle of keyboards
47) h-h-hep-a-what?
48) Thats kinda sad, oh well, hope you have fun doing it. :)
49) righhhtt.... I'll tell you when i notice it in any of your deviations.
50) Okay, i know a few people who do conlangs, but this is taking it to a new level.

3) Yes, he's the guy from Harry Potter.
16) Just read the code, it's there :)
29) Yep.
31) No, I like statistics when they mean something. Like "what is the average age of a deviantART user?" and "how many are 16 years old?".
32) [link]
34) No, sorry.
35) You'll need an Apache2, PHP5 and MySQL4 or MySQL5 installation on a Windows system, if you have that feel free to ask me to send you the source code over so that you can check it out :)
36) It helps me debug, and that's what matters.
38) Developer through experience, improved slowly. So it took a few months.
39) i.e. creating a program that produces source code that you will then run.
41) When somebody else has done a commit between your two commits, that is.
42) I do :)
43) Not smelly ones, simple white ones. It just makes a nice atmosphere, that's all. And lets you relax. I guess it's necessary when you're so much into software development!
44) Heh, sorry, that was a secret shared between a only a few people. I expected most not to get this. Might reveal what it was in a few months though :)
45) Talk to me if you ever see me :)
47) Alexander's best friend. Read the wikipedia entry dude!

okay, so is this a reply of large comments?

16) the codes hard to get to... at times.
35) no, i'm not allowed any of those, but i do have some limited webspace (thanks to lee)
45) what channels do you hang out in?

35) You have to run it locally, I'm afraid. Well, at least haven't tried remotely. But you'll need to set up NFS or SMB if you want remote. Which will be way too hard if you just have some webspace :(
