I love personality analysis. Here is a really good one that touches on many different aspects of the personality. I think it was quite accurate indeed. It uses sliders and such to present answers to the questions of the test, as opposed to those stupid radio button things, which are way too vague for me. I think it hit me really hard on the openness and trust. My one complaint about this test is that it uses the word "people" a lot. This makes me refer to the general population, and I only trust people who are close to me. It also presents me as of "Average Femininity" and I tend to think of myself as more masculine. How can I be of "Average Femininity" as well as "Average Masculinity"? Aren't they opposites, and you cannot be both at the same time? Anydangway, here are my graphical results:

Another presentation of my results:

Free Stuff for Canadians

I have found a new addiction. It's a form for sharing links to free stuff throughout the internet, such as free samples and promotions. I've sent away for so much stuff already. I have no idea why it's so addicting, considering I haven't even gotten anything from it yet. The only severely irritating thing is for some of the offers you have to enter your phone number. I personally don't want some random company knowing my phone number. But I found this offer to be a part of a nicotine replacement study. Basically, they give you free nicotine replacement therapy (eg. patches, gum, whatever is right for you). It's all verified by a pharmacist, so it's legit. They won't give you the stuff unless you consult with a pharmacist first. I will pick mine up maybe next week when I get time off.

I know it's silly, but I love free stuff. I am also a packrat, which can be a severely irritating combination for those around me. But some of it will actually be useful, for example, the t shirts. I always need new clothing because I hate buying clothes. Now, if only I could find one that gives out free pants.

*crash*.. Navizon, MobileScrobbler, #G7 again, and Second Life

Today, #G7 is being a cockface. It's not letting me log in. I was testing out a new server connection to the EFnet network, and connected and reconnected. Obviously, it logged me out. Now the fucking message bot won't accept my login info. It's not doing anything.

On another depressing note, I updated some of the software on my iPod touch. Two programs that were updated were Navizon GPS and MobileScrobbler. Navizon has decided to be a bunch of fucking tools and has decided to charge from now on for use of this program ($29.99 or something stupid). Which is bullshit. I fucking hate when companies revert to charging for previously free software. It's so fucking lame. Oh well, I guess I will just have to figure out how to downgrade.

The other program, MobileScrobbler, is very important to me. It is the whole reason I jailbroke my iPod. Last I tried, it was not working. It was not loading my information. But, I tried it just now and it's working. I really hate the changes they've made though. I was miffed at the last version that I couldn't see what songs are in the queue. Now I can't even see how many songs are in the queue! Hell, I can't even edit my information! Edit: Apparently I wasn't looking hard enough. The settings for MobileScrobbler are in the iPod's general settings

I also found something called Second Life today, courtesy of Wired Magazine. As far as I can tell, its an avatar chat thing. It takes place in a virtual world which is seemingly complex and strange. I haven't even skimmed the surface yet. But, I have changed my character's appearence (he's a male furry with bright magenta hot pants, a tight black shirt, and garter style fishnet stockings). I can't for the life of me figure out how to get back to Orientation Island and get the fucking guide window back up. It's extremely annoying. I will figure it out when I have spare time. I've already spent way too much time dicking around here on the computer.

By the way, here is the link to the story which enlightened me about Second Life: LINK

#G7 Idle RPG

So I found this thing on IRC called an idle RPG. It's based on the structure of a normal RPG (eg. levelling, items, quests etc.) except the main difference is the way you gain levels. The way to gain levels is to idle in the room as long as possible. You get penalized for logging out, quitting, getting kicked, sending messages in the room, or otherwise being active. It's a really silly concept, but so awesome at the same time. I figured since I idle enough anyway, what a great way to make it semi-productive. Finally, something where it pays off to do nothing.
