Maybe this time its for real.

i wander, slowly tonight, i can hear the rumbles, wandering in the darkness. A clothlike cloud, shivers. Im ending.

But the end is only another begining.

Stress of exams.

Im currently remmbering all the stress that various people throughout my life have put me through, there is many cases of extreme stress which now, people are finally starting to relise can be unhealthy over a long period of time. The most worrying thing is the largest stress is the stree that ocoors at the times in my life where i need to be thinking the most streight. Anyone in their teen years will know exactly what im talking about, and most of us will of felt exam stress at some point of our lifes.

At the moment people are taking all sorts of exams, gcses (soon anyway), university exams, other tests from various forms of education. And the strangest thing? Is that most of these tests will prove nothing more than if a student has the power to memorise a book. The book in question is the book of answers. For ever exam there is answers, and should you be able to memorise enough of these then you will pass, even if you had only encountered the subject 5 minutes before.

This means, in my eyes at least, that exams are extremely flawed. Especially at what they are meant to do, prove (or disprove) a students ability to carry out tasks based around a subject they have studied. Whats even more stupid i find about exams is the way that they dont take into effect the circumstances in which the "tested" is placed. They by no way look at any skills that the "tested" has, and anything else which is effecting them on the day of the test. Such things can vary from injurys to other problems happening in the background. Many things can put you off in a exam and this is another reason why they are so flawed.

Whats really stupid is when the exam doesn't actually matter at all to the student, and yet it is pushed upon them by the school or college. When i say this i talk of the key skills exams, which you end up taking over and over again at different stages of education. There is other exams like these also. The problem i have with them is not taking them, but the way that teachers will push their students so hard to reach different levels in which they would not normally be aiming for. Also what annoys me is when schools and college know they will be inspected. And every student ever will agree with this, you will find that they change everything around the college or school, I know at my college (city college coventry) that hundreds of things changed, but the biggest was the way that we were caught, during normal day to day activitys we would have teachers leaving and re-entering the classrooms all the time, during the inspection they would not leave. We would be forced to have normal timed breaks, the teaching would change style also.

Anyway you start to see my point.

The food is burning and i must run....

Comments welcome! Anyone had the same?

Weblogs.com is dead (for now)

weblogs.com is offically down due to the fact that the nice guy that ran it can't afford to any more. Which tbh is a fair as enuf excuse as any. No one was paying him (directly anyway) so why are they complaining so badly?

If they are THAT bothered about a blog, then they should host it them selfs, like i do, with my website. Anyway, i think i might start playing everquest again (or evercrack if ya have heard of it ^_^). Just need to find a mini pack to get me started.... Problem is, i could order it from america for about £2, but then customs bang on vat etc and it takes awhile to get here also, so instead i hope to find it in town and buy it there !!.

Wish me luck

Where have i been?

Your prob wondering where i have been for the last few days, well if im honest, i dont even know, but that doesn't stop me making up some random story for your enjoyment. Lets see i have been to college, and now, for the first time ever. I have FINISHED a course. The fact that i have to go back on two more days, for a reason i dont know of yet, is partly random but i've still finished none the less. Now what else has happened? I've got a interview for safeways for a job. It could be ANY job at anytime doing ANYthing, which is kind weird really as im normally very fussy about jobs and such, which is prob the same reason i haven't got a job yet. But it looks like things are improving as such and hopefully this time next week i will be looking at a full job.

Also i've been adding franticly to the linkz section at the side, and we have some very kool websites for you to visit there, and incidently, it seems that this, plus my other website has somehow increased my page rank within google so that if you search for "djsmiley" then i am top! Not sure what happens if you add anything to that yet, must check.

Hi guys,
was in town today and met channy and mike. They were kind enough to imform me that my FMP (final major project) was due in this friday. Thats less than 5days! We have been being told that we had 2 weeks after the half term, now we only have less than ONE? Yet again you can see the ways that this course gets away with fucking us around, and we can do nothing about it. I guess even if my tutor SAW this i would get in shit for it. Its truely THAT bad.
So now i have a project, which i can't really work at home on. I have no one to help me with it really either. The person who will be in tomorrow knows fuck all about 3d and can't teach us anything about it or help us out with it, and no doubt he will be doing his own agenda anyway. Prob sorting out some work of his on the side...

So we are getting fucked around and im already guessing about 50% of us have a high chance of failier. Im hoping ill be alright as im good at this kind of thing, sorting something out last minute. But at the same time, i have to make sure i can squeeze the module list out of our tutor so i can submit it to UCAS so i can try and get onto the HND @ cov uni. Someone will have to truely wish me luck with that!

Damn im soo mad right now, and its not just me either. It seems a group of us (who would normally be "star pupils") are all having the same damn problem. Surely when its a problem this large scale, its not someone being awkward? But then again i know what this college is like. My bro knows someone who got stright A's in everything, he was int he same class that my bro was in. They both like top of the class students, yet the whole class didn't get higher than a C?! Appently their tutor forgot something and didn't teach it them.... yet no one does anything about it.....


POWER TO THE PUPILS!

Lies and pain, oh so much pain!

College for most people is paradise. Your finally freed from the pressure of school, the pressure of people watching over you constantly. Having those rules which for some reason exist, and yet do nothing but annoy. And then, there is the teachers. Oh how we all hate the teachers. Well sorry kids, somethings never change.

Ill start at the beginining. The very begining. Which would be when i was in 6th form. Nice enough place, but at the time i had stuff going on which generally meant i messed up big time, i also had chosen the wrong courses totally, i chose on what i belived was "right" to do, instead of what i wanted to do. Looking back i shouldn't of stayed at 6th form at all, i should of left as fast as i could. But whats done is done and we can't live in the past.

Then there was my first year of college, i had taken up a graphics design course, as i belived then that i could draw. I can draw, but only of things my mind can create, i can't draw acturate pictures of anything true. This also was a mistake but what didn't help was the attitudes of two teachers. Simon Gee and Robert Talbot. To be honest everyone belived that Simon Gee was gay, this didn't bother me at all as i dont care. What did bother me was the fact that he seemed to have something against me for having computer knowledge. Every week we would have a computer art course in which we would be sat in front of a computer and be made to copy what ever he created. It would come to the end of the lession and we would be told to save work etc etc. I remmber too different situations which caused us grief. The first i belive was the fact that people ran out of space on their network drives. This its self was a easly solveable problem - people just had to save their work in a compressed format which was uneditable, as apposed to the one which is default. I tried to tell simon this but his answer was to either delete old work, or store it on floppy disk etc.
The second problem was not one that Simon created but one which certinally could of been helped by him. I found that if you saved a .jpg directly to a floppy disk then it would cause the machine to crash. Now normally this wouldn't be a problem, you could save it to the hard drive, and then copy it over. But people had no more space on their hard drives, and if you tried to save the file as the default format it would be too big and fill the disk. Simon refused to belive me that the machine kept crashing and told me to keep trying (each reboot of the machine using up to 2minutes of lesson time). I kept showing him and finally he tried, to no avail, but he never did admit he was wrong.

Another pain in graphic design was the A-level art we were signed upto on fridays. On the first friday we were signed upto A-level art but no one told us this. We could of left the course (the art bit) at that very moment but no one bothered to make this clear. Even worse was the attitude of the lecturer, he would not allow the use of black paint "as it doesn't exist in real life". This was Rob Talbot btw. He never really showed us how to actively research into any art at all, and had us copying pictures from books or what other information we could fathom. He never bothered to explain how the course was actually laid out and so i didn't relise that we had 3 projects to do, each one with a workbook and a final peice. He had a general "im better than anyone else" feel to him and would speak down to everyone. He would very rarely praise anyone, and i was very surpprised when he did give me praise, once in 1 year with him twice a week.

I remmber we had a course meeting and i had been chosen as course student leader person, i actively mentioned the problems with the computer room etc and Rob Talbot said that he would look into it. Seems the replaced the computers, but sadly, they dont employ anyone at the college inteligent enought to know what computers we actually need. Yet more money wasted.

I finally left the course in the last week of the first year. I then went on holiday.

I returned and had decided that I was going to do Multimedia at Tile Hill College, i had lots of people here i knew doing it, and i knew i could do what ever the course asked of me. I joined the course and all seemed to be going well, but then things started to cause problems. We had such problems as:

- We would be told we have an assignment but never given (or given late) the sheet accomanying it.
- The dates for the hand in of any assignment would change (Seemingly randomly) to fit when ever the tutor wanted the work in.
- Attempting to hand in work early was not permitted, yet on the day of hand in we would be told that no one has completed the work yet.
- If ONE person hadn't finished a peice of work, the whole class would be left working on a finished project
- The students would be blamed for something other classes had done
- There was a incident where a student acidently changed the name of a machine, this then disabled the printer. The student was threatened with being thrown off the course. (and it was me, and trust me, this was something that i, and my friends did not know was possible).
- Tutors showed some serious lack of knowledge sometimes in programs they are teaching.
- One tutor would enter the lession, even every 5minutes to talk to another tutor. Disturbing the class and often taking the other tutor away from the class for long periods of time.
- Tutors seemed to have a massive LACK of knowledge about general working of the college, such as numbers for UCAS forms and the like (stuff you expect them to know).
- Sometimes tutor would not show up at all, leaving us to work on our own
- Sometimes no work would be set at all, we would be told "you have something to do" and i wouldn't for i like to make sure all work is complete.
- I was awarded a distinction for the building of a computer (pass level) and then i have never recived reckonition of this, as the lecturer left.
- Also many broken promises, we have been told many many times that we were going to be doing something and it called off, told that we would be getting something and it not happening. Also it seems that a number of illegal or dodgy pratices were taking place at the same time.


As well as this, we have the constant telling of us that we never meet deadlines, that we will all fail in university. Also we are subjected to a lack of respect to us. Recently we have been doing our FMP (final major project) which basicly dipicits our whole grade for the last two years. 90% of the students needed to film in the college grounds. Multipul times they were told that cameras were ready for their use when they wanted them, how ever when they asked for them they found they were either beening lent out to other classes or the battery had not been charged.
About 50% of the students were planning to do the HND, we had been promised many things from our tutor, and now our tutor is leaving, throwing out the doubt that we will get nothing of what has been promised, but now it is too late to apply to university or what ever.

I think im lucky as in im going to apply to university anyway. and god help the college if they dont help me apply.

Weird dream last night

2 posts within 5minutes? wow!

I had a really weird dream last night. i dont know why yet, but normally i work out where my dreams have come from.

At first i was in some kind of theme park, it was about midday, it wasn't in the uk, i know that much. There was a castle and stuff lying around. A old man appeared, i think i was young again about 7maybe?. The old man was meant to be the old wizard out of harry potter. He asked if we were all ready and we agreed. He then announced that he was going to release the creatures. I then knew, that i had two creatures after me, they would not hurt me, but i had to destory them. It was some kind of game. I fell backwards into a bush, and the two creatures, rather like large fat fluffy dogs jumpped on top of me, and just kept me there. I did the spell for light, limumaris?. It did nothing, then i did another spell, i think the one that is the most feared in the books. It made one of the creatures go flying and the other one vanished. I quickly stood up, and ran off, i was running around this park kinda thing for awhile, then i saw someones else creature, i ignored it and kept going. I saw mine again and killed it (or what eva i did to it!). Then i headed off to find my mum, i found her walking around looking for a supermarket. I also found my girlfriend, Amy, there... Amy and i walked off for awhile and i showered her my wand, she took the mick and grabbed some twig and started waving it at me. I then walked off again, and i dont know where Amy went, i saw my mum. I was with my mum and we walked down past some shops looking for wilkosons. I relised that we had gone in the wrong direction. We walked back the other way. We reached what looked like a massive wall, and just at the top there was a opening, and there was a disco inside. I turned to my left and there was what appeared to be some steps down to the next floor down. But looking at them closer i relised they were just peices of wood, on pillars to make it look mexican. At the same time my brother had climed quite far out onto these. Also, a kid i know called sean began to climb onto them too, i knew they wern't attached so i told sean to come back. He tried to turn and started to slip. I shouted to my brother, and a big mexican came out of the shop next door, he saw what was happening. I dont remmber what happened then, but next thing i knew, we were at the bottom, and the mexican was climbing down holding shawn...

Then i woke up. What you make of that!!

BT Blocks child p0rn websites

Hey all, just seen on slashdot that BT, the main broadband and telephone provider for the Uk are planning to block child porn websites. I for one think this is a truely good thing, but if you take a wander over to slashdot, where i first noticed the artical, you will see that not everyone agrees. As always the web provides a large selection of different views on any subject, and this one, is perticually explosive.

But child p0rn is bad right? Yes, and it SHOULD be blocked. It seems that everyone agrees with this. And i think they rightly would. So why are they complaining? Well, to some, its the start of a long chain of events. First isp's block the child p0rn websites. Which i as well as many many others have said is a good thing, but some think that after this, other kind of sites will also be blocked. They belive that this will mean the end of porn sites, mp3 sites, warez sites (basicly illegal goods or software). Is this such a bad thing really?

Well, i see one very scary and stupid thing happening if they DO choose to block these types of sites. Its the people that started these sites whom are the ones that invent new ways of sharing this information. First it was programs, programs would be shared over the web and people could freely download them. Then came mp3s... this caused a riot as the industy this started to effect was not the same industy that would profit from them. (If people download a computer program, they need a computer to use it. If people download a mp3, they dont need a cd player). Then along came the paedophiles. They relised that they had the best network between them for sharing infomation, infomation in the form of pictures of children.

There is hardly any programs on the web any more, there is no mp3s either. Where have they all gone? Well they have moved onto other forms of transport, namely p2p software. The biggest one to blame here is KaZZa, but even this has ways of stopping such things as child p0rn, its still based around central servers (Supernodes and a backbone) and so it can be filtered out. When kazza shuts down (which one day it will, or it will suffer a long slow death). We will move onto new technologies, some are appearing already, such as bit torrent and others. But each time, less and less people seem to use them or even know about them.

What worries me is if child p0rn is stopped at the level of the web, its going to end up traveling via other routes. Yes, please block the sites, but at the same time, you are going to have to fight the people publishing it in the first place. You cannot just stop the end user and hope that the problem will go away. What ever happens dont let them create their own network which no one will be able to find. If at the moment Suprnova only gets 10,000 constant users that is such as small part of the web. Imagine how easy it would be to hide a child p0rn ring, with a new program which no one uses. I hope this doesn't happen, it would be truely scary.

A bit of history for you

Heres a comment i just posted on someones website, they were talking about drepession etc.

"Hum, there is more to life than sex....


And thats just the start of the fall. Problem with relationships is that people want them for different reasons. Some people just want a compainion whom you can enjoy stuff with. Everything is so much better when there is someone else there to enjoy it too!

Now about the drepression.... This is a long scary subject which now, im sure im one of the most experinced people in the UK to talk on it. WHY?, well because i had acne and so was eventually prescribed some really strong drugs, so strong infact that they small warning leaflet that came with them had a warning, "blah blah may cause death"... Now thinking about it, thats truely scary.

Anyway, these drugs were mega drepessants. At first i didn't notice and difference, but its when i look back (it was over a year ago now) i relise that i was just getting lower and lower. I didn't notice as it wasn't effecting me in ways i expected. But i became very very drepressed. But my acne cleared up and i stopped taking them (prematurly too). Appently i should of gone to the doctors alot afterwards to check i wasn't falling into drepression (but i was so drepressed that i didn't care at the time).

I lost my sex drive, i just wanted to sit in my bedroom all day and do nothing else, i would eat maybe one meal a day, i wouldn't sleep, maybe a hour anight, i would stay up all night on irc (internet relay chat) talking to people about my problems... i would wake up very early and continue to talk to them, some nights i wouldn't go to bed at all. i was falling into some kind of dream world where nothing mattered. I then quit college, 3days from the end of the first year. I had already given up inside, as it was the wrong course for me, but this made it offical.

Weeks past as i was just as low as ever, we went on holiday and i still can't remmber any of it, i just remmber not caring. It was like i was dreaming constantly. (i think this would be a side effect of the drug, but not sure still). At the end of the holiday i decided i needed to go back to college, and to work out what i was going to do.

I decided to do multimedia as i knew loads of people already doing it. THings started to look up but still i had this dark cloud hanging over me. Towards the end of the first year, it go worse. I wanted to quit college, i really really didn't care. Anything would be better. I finally went to the doctor and they eventually gave me some antidrepessants..

They did their job, but they did it too well, when before i was in a dreamstate which had no feelings at all, i was now in a dreamstate where every feeling was multiplyed 1000x over. I made my self happy by thinking happy thoughts, but some times, it would creap back, espeically late at night, the darkness would remind me of the place i used to hide with no feeling.
For about 3months i took the drugs, i should of taken them for 6 appently, one day i just flipped and decided i had to stop. They were scaring me, they were making me into someone i wasn't. I took the drugs, smashed them up and threw them down the drain.


My point? Feelings are normal, but sometimes they get too strong. We can get help and it DOES work. But sometimes the help we get can be worse than fixing our problems ourselfs.
If anyone ever takes antidrepressen's i wish you good luck and warn you to be very careful. Make sure you have someone close you can talk to, someone who will notice when its going too far.

And in the end, you ARE in control.

"



Damn its a long comment eh? Its just part of my long dark history :)

grid.org Forums - Daily Topics

grid.org Forums - Daily Topics...... This page, used to be the page i frequent the most, more than any other in the history of web surfing one might say. At least, in the history of my web surfing. Every so often, my habbits on the computer, mostly the sites i check on, the ones i read, the news i care about and the stuff i ignore. Well, it changes, i find new links, delete old ones... Stuff falls into the past and will never return. This is strange really, and over time, you gather more and more links, all of which become equally important. But sadly, this one no longer is. I wont delete it yet, for all might be fixed, but i think not, i think as i explain, you will also come to understand why i have no more faith in this.

This link, is to a forum. The forum is part of a project, to hopefully help find a cure to cancer, and other desises which effect humanity. I think this project and all projects like it are a great idea. Im not at all saying that no one should not try to take part, nor am i saying that any one project is better than another. I am just stating my reasons for change, and what has caused this. I strongly urge anyone that likes the idea of helping out humanity to either contact me, or look @ the links i provide (or just search google.) and at least then, if they feel that they would also like to join in something, so great that i cannot still comprehend how far some people go to do this.
I now hear a question being asked "what is this project he speaks of?", well the project i did personally was run from a site called grid.org and basicly it run a small client on your computer.
This client uses idle CPU time (i.e. unused computer power, and only unused power. this will NOT lag your machine), to do mathmatical computions. It works through blocks of data, looking for patterns or other signs (each project is different) and when its finished, it sends the data back. This is a very simple explaination and more infomation can be found on the site where the project is run from.

For over two years i ran this project, on over 30 machines *(totaling about 5years cpu time)*, at the same time as running the project, i was a member of the forum. This forum was hosted by the company that produced the software. Now, on the forum there was a constant battle going on... basicly there was people asking for a linux port of the software, so they could run it on their own linux machines (its currently windows only). It seems that everytime someone requested a linux port they were shot down for even concidering the idea. This annoyed me some what, but the comany that owns the client we run, we have to bow down to them dont we?....

So two years later, 5years of cpu time later.... Something weird starts happening with my clients, they keep going strangly wrong. I dont know why, but they just keep aborting over and over again. Over the 2years, many times had this come up on the forum, most of the time it would be worked out, someone would be overheating their machine, some dodgy ram etc. Normal problems which dont effect the adverage pc user.... but sometimes, this would happen, and no matter how much we tried, in the end, the only answer we got was "well it sometimes happens and we dont know why"... I know, as a programmer and long term computer user that this isn't possible. There is no program, (except one which writes random code) which would cause a problem so erratic that no one could fix it).

It was this "theory" from UD (the company that created the client) that got me thinking. Why bother creating something and then not really supporting it? Why create it so that it could only really be used by a small propition of the amount of people who wish to use it? I sadly only came up with one answer and that was, when the press look at them. No matter what, they will be connected, the fact this company created and runs a cancer research project... And we all know how much that effects people.

its quite possible that they cannot afford to fix the client, but if this is true, make it open source, make it so we, the users can fix it. And dont tell us any more excuses, because finally, we have had enough.


BTW at the moment i am currently running Seti, a project which is basicly looking for aliens, i know it wont save lifes but at least if this dont work, i can get it fixed. Until i find a project better supported than Grid.org. (i have tried folding@home and find-a-drug too.)


peace out all.

New added extras for the blog

Hi all
How many of you have heard of "open source software"? Not many i would guess.. and i bet even less of you actually know what it means? Basicly its when a company has a program they have created, and the choose to let the public see the code which creates that program.

Now, at the moment, there is massive war going on between many different companys, IBM, Microsoft, SCO, Linux (not a company i know!!) etc.... The start of this what that SCO claimed that linux had stolen part of the code from their much loved Unix.

Now, if this was found to be true, it would mean that SCO have the right to charge everyone using linux. So what you ask? Well, linux is free. Its a free operating system. FREE? yes, free as the air. Problem is its normally very large and difficult to download (unless you have a nice fast internet connection, i can download a Distro in about 5hours).

What is even better though is that linux is open source. This means that anyone can view the code. If anyone can view the code, then anyone can debug the code. It means you have a much better program, one which is safer, more reliable.

Also as you can see, i've added an extra bit at the bottom here, to tell you my mood and such ! :)

Big Brother

Big brother is now appently evil? What a pile of ol' SHITE!. Its the most stupid claim i have ever heard. For if big brother was evil, well it would truely put people to the test the way that some of the other reality tv programs do. (dont worry, i hate them all!).

But like, they claim its evil, and can no one see what they are trying to create?

A evil place would not have:
A jazzcuzi,
Massaage mats
Oils and such,
A oven, fridge and other kitchen stuff.
BEDS! (at all)

It would have NO outside, a toliet in complete darkness.

No windows, flat grey walls, small as possible.


Common C4, you can do much better than that!!!!.




And another thing to cross my small broken mind is that, how come teachers get holidays? yet students dont? People say "oh you have loads of holidays," and yes we do, but the teachers get those holidays too. So when you break it down and think about it, the teachers are in less than any pupil!.

Stupid really.



RAR!.


peace out!
