MGS VR Missions sooooooo needs more missions as the ninja.


Since my recipes are obviously so popular, here's an extension to the
last one: simply add jalapenos. Yummy. They add texture and flavor,
without impacting the heat much that was put there by the stupidly
hot sauce.

Notice that if you happen to like you jalapenos crunchy [I know I do],
but they're all soft and annoying when they come out of the liquid
they're stored in, simply remove them from that liquid and leave them
in the air for ~1/2 hr. The go all crunchy and get noticeably hotter, too.

For anyone who's not paying proper attention, by the way: this gets a
fair-to-middling on the "things you really don't wanna put in your mouth
unless you know what you're doing" category. If you don't like hot food,
don't do it.


Note: My old stuff has moved to,
although the resourceful among you will be able to find it in
IcculusFinger's archive system.


Well, firstly, an apology. For the last {mumble} weeks, I've been doing
immense amounts of work on my project, avoiding sleep to achieve this,
and other things severally. And while I've been doing that, I've been
a total arse.

Specifically, I'd actually like to apologise to all the people whose
lives I've made unpleasant during that time. Explicit cases include
Sara and a guy on who I let loose on even though he was
actually giving me a compliment. Ho, hum. Everyone else, you know who
you are, and I am sincerely sorry.

So, that out of the way, things, otherly:
My project. Is sucks. I've failed it miserably, and I'm now considering
it to be the final nail in my degree's coffin. I'll probably still get
a degree, but it ain't gonna even slightly resemble a first. While it's
been feeling like I've done huge amounts of work, in the end, I look at
my project, and it just looks crap. Oh, well, what can you do, right?

More cheeful things, now.

While I've been doing my project, my main foodstuff has been the

Take two pieces of bread
Put cheddar cheese on one [mild is good, but mature has a more interesting
flavor, if you happen to like that. Took me a sandwich or three, but
now I prefer it]
Pour oregano liberally-ish over that.
Take the other piece of cheese, and thinly smear some of either
1) Dave's Insanity Sauce
2) Dave's Ultimate Insanity Sauce
over it. Notice the word "thinly". Notice that the word Habanero comes
/before/ the word tomato in the ingredients on the Ultimate Insanity
one. This recipe, by the way, can cause substantial amounts of pain if
you get this step wrong and read "more than a drop or two" into the word
Put the two together, and put into a sandwich toaster until cooked
[how much you like them cooked is up to you]
Eat gently

If you live in the UK, you can get the above at

Yum, yum. And since I imagine many of you missed my last recipe, have a
shufty at . Chip butties
are delicious. Bonus points go to anyone who can tell me why I gave that
web page that name. I'll give you a hint: someone else chose it for me.

Now that major project is out of the way, I can teach myself how to
write a device driver in earnest. Specifically, I have a copy of Rubini
& Corbet, and I shall be producing a rot13 device driver. Why? Because
I need a trivial device to start with, and rot13 is about the only
interesting but trivial thing I could think of that still contains a lot
of the important bits of your average driver but without lots of boring
stuff in the middle.

Hmmm. I lead such an exciting life.

Well, you gotta give some guys credit for obstinacy. The other day,
a guy called xwins appeard in [and #loki, I believe, but
#loki is no longer my standard trolling grounds].

Ten minutes or so after his arrival, I started /msg'ing people the message
"ten bucks says this is Hopkins". For anyone who doesn't know who Hopkins
is, he's someone who's more annoying than me, and, among other things,
slapped a lawsuit on one of's other patrons for comments
said patron made on /.. Now, people who do that actually /scare/ me.
[warning: it's long]

Anyways. In the end, it turned out the he was Hopkins, and lots of
people owe me money... although I commented that they may as well give
it to Icculus. That was sincere, by the way. Major kudos goes to at
least one guy I know who /did/ paypal Icc the money.

Now that my project is done, I have gone and got my playstation
back. Cool. And MGS. And MGS VR Missions. Anyways. Unfortunately, you
won't be seeing the PlayStationCam updating much as I'm no longer on
a permanant internet connection [I never got a response from BT, by
the way], but I'm now back on it. I've beaten ~57% of the VR missions
[according to the stats there], and I've almost not started MGS at all,
given that I found it easier to pick up & put down the VR missions. So
I'll be playing them for a while.

And finally, for this plan update, my exciting holiday plans:
Wooo! Am flying out to the states come the 3rd of April, and am flying
back on the 9th. Will be meeting, for the first time, some of you scary
people who actually read this .plan. Mwahahahaha. I'll be arriving in
LAX at 5.20 in the afternoon after an 11hr 05m flight. Mmmmmm.

When this .plan was written: 2002-03-19 09:17:28
