Hello my faithful beta testers!

Thank you for agreeing to test out my new program, Derro# (Derro
Sharp), a character record program for Dungeons and Dragon 3.5 This
program started on December 12th, 2008, 6 months ago, which I slowly
worked on over the course of just under 200 hours to bring it to it's
current point.

The goal of Derro# is to provide you with a free, easy to use, yet
robust tool to help you track your character in D&D.

Please find and download Derro# at www.derrocreations.org. While you
are there, please sign up for the Derro# forums so that you will be
able to post bugs, submit feature requests, and share your builds with
the rest of us!

When in Derro#, you can find basic instructions for it's use under
Help > Basics.

As this is an open beta, please feel free to share this program with
your friends, family, your neighbor's dog, anyone with a computer!
Make sure they sign up on the forum too....I want to make sure
everyone has a chance to request additional features or point out
bugs. This program will not get better without your help.

Thanks again for being my core group of beta testers. I look forward
to many many posts from all of you.

See you in the forum!

We actually had a way better pose with our tongues out and hanging all over eachother, but the idiot taking the pictures for people couldn't get my phone to click, when she finally did this is what came out of it. It was okay though, cause I got to go into a bunch of poses with amanda cause we kept thinking it was going to go ofdf and I got a long extended hug!

She also signed my ipod!

EDIT: We also had a question and answer period were people asked her questions like "what would you by if you were a multi-billionaire" and dumb questions like that, so I asked her who she was going to vote for. She got up real close the mic and said "OOOObamaaaaaaaaaaaa!!" and everyone erupted in cheers.

I'm so glad MA is blue.

The more I think about it, the less I want a border collie/lab mix.

I mean, I love the breed, but they have too much energy, and I don't exactly live on a farm. A dog of that breed wouldn't be too happy with the lifestyle.

So onto the second, third, and fourth choices.



Pharaoh Hound

If I got a pharaoh hound I'd call her Ramses. haha

School this semester rocks. I feel like I am the king of all of my classes. Even in my networking class where I, as a programmer amongst networking gurus, should find myself lost admist a wash of complicated theories and technical know how, I am instead finding myself outpacing most of the class with my mad binary decoding skills and router finesse.

So here's something awesome. Last half I pumped probabley around 50 hours in my final project for Visual Basic. It never really got boring, but I kept getting sidetracked by web projects I would rather have done.

This semester, however, I have final projects in both ASP.NET and Visual Basic, which allows me to flex my mad web programming skills in addition to pumping out a cool, retro style dungeon crawl adventure in VB.


Frog's Unlimited

Using the visual studio interface, I have to complete a list of requirement's while making a Business website. The business can be anything I want. And so I'm making "Frog's Unlimited," an online store owned by one Mr.Frog, artist extrodinaire. Throughout his travelers around the world, the eccentric Mr.Frog has mastered not only several styles of art and sculpture crafting, but also the art of Umbrella and skateboard making. Art pieces unto themselves, Mr.Frog's umbrellas and skateboards and both colorful and whimsical, and are as durable as they are beautiful.


Heroes (working title)

Using the visual studio interface, I have to complete a list of requirement's while making any sort of program I desire. I've decided upon a first person shooter type of game where, much like Dungeons and Dragons, you have a set of stats that you can beef up with magical items that you find along your way. The main portion of the game is navigating through the Laberynth of the Lost God, where the hero encounters a slew of monsters. Everytime the hero enters a room, a percentage will be rolled to see if a monster will appear, and, if so, a percentage is then rolled to determine which monster it will be. If the monster rolled is four levels greater or lesser then then hero, the game rolls again.
The graphics of the game will be simple. Each room will pretty much look the same, and each monster will have a set of three graphics to encompass the three actions it can take.
1.Sit there when it's not it's turn
2.Get hit and show pain
Combat will be turned based.
The game ends when you escape the maze. A random maze is picked each time (i'll have two of them to start.)

So I'm almost done the Frog Unlimited one, and I have the character creation pretty much complete for the Heroes game. I might scratch that part though and just drop you right into the game, kind of like doom does. I don't know if it will encompass all of what I wrote there, but last semester, when I set my sight really high for my DND character roller, I ended up getting most of what I wanted done. Impressive, I think.

i'm going to have to talk to my roommate. I wake up at 7:00 am three days a week and have to be gone by 7:30. Every time I wake up here's in the bathroom, and he usually gets out at 7:20. That leaves no time for a shower, and I sometimes forget to take it the night before. Today it's almost 7:30 and he's not out yet.

We're not close friends, so I feel awkward about it. If it were a close friend of mine like derek or ryan or simon or someone I'd be like "get the fuck out of there."

thank god. he's out.

*rushes to brush his teeth so he can leave*

Making yet another website, this one for school.

It's my final project. It's not due until the end of the semester, but I love to get a jump on things.

Right now I just have the general layout.

It's an imaginary business owned by one Mr.Frog, owner and collector of...rare..somethings.

Haven't decided yet.

But it's called "Frog's Unlimited." And the whole theme is..well...frogs.
