Boy, I can tell ya - They're not a good thing! not a good thing at all!
I have a computer addiction. My brother is so fucked up - He does not have any higher grades then 2.0 in his report card.
I just wish I could keep a small portion of my addiction and throw the rest out the window...
It's the only thing that keeps me from getting better grades. (My avg last year was like 3.2...)
And bad grades mean less money. Lower grades - badder (from the word "bad", not "badass"!) future.
And I don't understand all these 13-14-15-16-17 year olders that use the term "computer nerd". Most of 'em just play Xbox/PS2/Gamecube 24/7. Why can't I call 'em game console nerds? They fuckin' watching TV all fucking day!
What's so bad about being a 3D designer?! or a programmer? hell, these loser can skate and show their punk asses all they wan't, but I'm the one who's gonna be making FUCKING SEVENTY (OR MORE!!!) DOLLARS PER HOUR, AT COMPANIES LIKE MICROSOFT OR ACTIVISION, MAKING GAMES THAT THEIR CHILDREN WILL BE FUCKING PLAYING!! AND THEY'LL END UP JANITORS!
Yea! fucking eat that, shitholes!
I mean, did you see Doom 3's lead designer!? he's my fucking idol!

...I just I wish I had more power to take control of myself, and study more... :(

edit: I'm sorry if you're sick of me complaining all the time, but this is the only place where people actually care. I think my sensitive ass is going to cry again. You guys are awesome. Really.

could you... explain yourself better? (its probably just me. I dont undertand wtf-ing English very well. sry.)
I also play a lot of games, but lately I've noticed that they get boring quickly. But still, their fun. And what's te fucking diffeence between play Halo or Vice City on the computer and playing it on Xbox? There is no difference! So fucking stop "Computer Nerd"-ing everyone! (Not you guys, those fucking 13 year olds that act so cool al the time.)
(I've only been called it once. Summer camp.)

I use Adobe Photoshop for picture editing...... I take my DV cam out and shoot video of all kinds of shit, and my kid< Then I use Final Cut Pro to edit the video (cut shit out, enhance, add music, all that junk) for DVD burning! And lastly, I'm here with U fuckers online........

Fucked up on the junk was an exaggeration for computer addiction! :smash:

Right on Junglizm, I'm always stuck between web-site development, along with AIM, a la musica, and popping out the Diablo 2 LOD (cuz I am an old school gamer like that), or other such rpg. All of thats in my freetime, where-as at work, I intern at a place that makes online courses for the universities around Georgia. I am teh Nerd, and being teh Nerd will earn me copious amounts of money, and plenty of hot mama's. :thumbsup: to be a nerd.

I love the Jock Article by Maddox, "Now bag my groceries". Extremepilot, have you read the Hate-Mail by the jock? It's rather funny, go read it. Though, his best article, by far, is the PETA one.

Addicted as well

Yeah I'm part of the club too I just sit around in front of my computer working on photo editing, fucking around in dreamweaver, making music in Acid pro and I can't put a stop to it. My friends make fun of me because I haven't had a tan in what like... 10 years probably never. I hate going out side unless there is a computer there..... :thumbsup: I have computer addictions to thank for my bad eye site as well. YAY!!! :thumbsdn: Oh well I enjoy playing my computer games and computers in general.

First post yay!

I'm with you guys. All through high school I always knew this shit would pay off and my senior year I nailed a job as an IT staff at a tech school I was currently attending. I made more money than the stupid jocks that didn't even have a job who's parents always gave them money where as my parents never gave me shit. I've been a long time gammer ever since Nintendo. Now days I'm 19, first year in college (local college cuz my parents don't give me shit remember??? Thanks mom and dad) which I hope to leave after I get an Associates Degree in CS (Computer Science) and go off somewhere far the fuck away from Oklahoma. (Oklahoma == shit)

I like computer games. Hell I find myself modding them more than playing them. Making games is probably what I will end up doing or I will die trying. All I know is that this shit had better pay off. It just has too. I can't see my friends who would rather hang out with their girl friends, or hang out with "cooler" people, or some bull shit, than to LAN with me and make Quake mods. The fuckers stand me up at LAN parties all the time. They say they want to pursue a career in game dev but they don't wana take the time to learn how it actually works. All I know is they are fucked.

Did anyone go to Quakecon? or do you attend simular events such as game/hardware workshops, or game release parties? (I went to the Doom3 release in Dallas, so awsome. Got to meet half the idsoftware team.)

I'm am so close to deleting this rant because of fear of you guys giving me shit or flaming me or something but I'm used to it so fuck it. I'll go ahead and post it... :mfinger: Just don't dis me to bad cuz I'm the suicidal type. You wouldn't wana make me kill my self would you? ;)

Well for game dev the Dallas/FW area seems to be the place. So many game companies such as id software, gearbox, a buch of other little companies, as well as the popular hardware review site [H]ard|OCP, and the Guilders Hall (a game dev school taught by people in the buisness mostly from id) is there as well.

Though I would drop it all for an opportunity to live/work in the northwest. To damn hot down here.

BTW I am pursuintg my career in the programming side of development. I know the Q3A source code by heart and am currently awaiting the Doom3 code to be released or even better HL2. :D
