    VinLark So I found this on 4chan. What do you think
    >January 11th

    >begins soft with Fe and Hollow Knight release dates, February 23rd

    >Yoshi will release May 4th, called Tale of Two Knitties

    >Kirby releases March 2nd to keep with Switch anniversary

    >Fire Emblem Direct in April

    >Mario Maker in development, will permanently replace traditional 2D Mario games

    >Xenoblade Chronicles X and Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze ports round up the Wii U ports on the system

    >Pikmin 4 is coming, but will be talked about more at E3. Is a significantly smaller game, think original Pikmin. eShop only.

    >Pokemon and Online will be talked about later in the year, expected to be advertised hand in hand with each other

    >Xenoblade Chronicles 2 DLC is an alternate universe story mode where Shulk became the god and is a mini-campaign where you have to take him down. Priced at $20, post-E3 release.

    >Every Mighty Switch Force game launches for Switch January 11th

    >Hotline Miami collection gets a physical release, date unknown

    >Ruiner coming in the summer, presumably with Hotline Miami

    >No More Heroes: Travis Strikes Again trailer shown. Shantae and Snipperclips make the other 2 indies that appear in the game. Coming in September, but an exact date isn't revealed.

    >All first-party titles from GameBoy-GameBoy Advance will be the Switch Virtual Console library from January to June MOTHER3 excluded

    >South Park games coming to Switch packaged like Bayonetta 1+2

    >Wolfenstein 2 coming June 6th. Has all DLC.

    >Direct ends with an Animal Crossing teaser. July 27th release.

    This to me is giving way too much credit to the switch and Nintendo in general.
    VinLark Aight fam so I tasked myself with trying to finish this game. Let me tell you about it

    DDLC is some VN that hides behind the "CUTE GIRLS BUT SPOOPY" mask. Something that isn't suppose to be scary but woah it turns scary. Let me just say, it got me. First off, it started very slow. I was bored throughout the whole first act. I was mad at my character for being a social outcast who can't talk to women. God. Then it makes a 360. Soyrity (or whatever her name was) bimbo red head says she has depression. Made me cringe more then anything. I pick the thing where I confess my love to her and then the next day she commits suicide. RIP. But it's done it this "woah look at it its breaking the game" kinda thing where it shows an exception error. It supposedly ends. But now the menu is scrambled. Woahg.

    You start the game, like before. But bimbo is now scrambled name. The moment she appears on screen her sprite is scrambled and the music starts looping and god fucking damn I HATE when that happens so I exit it. Scared me tbh. I'll play it tomorrow maybe i'll feel better.

    TL;DR Baybbies first meta game scared me and now I don't want to play it anymore.

    Other than that, I have strep for the 50th time this 2 years and I hate it.

    VinLark Alright, so I think I've been doing good since i formatted Windows 7. I got my GPU, everything has been going smoothly. I have created a backup and everything is nice. I have 2TB in my system, life is good. I have W10 and arch installed. Awesome. Or so I thought

    Things are too good, let's start from the beginning. My friend gave me this 500GB hard drive, he just gave it to me. Alright. I also found my 1TB HDD so I made some backups. Important! I was running Windows 10. Not the best, and my wifi drivers were making my PC crash everyday b-but it works. So I use this 500GB drive for my Games partition, a HUGE space of my W10 drive that was being taken up.

    Woah! I have space available! Let me just partition it...................

    Oh wait. Windows 10 makes a retarded system reserved drive. K. I can't move the space in front, so I make a system image. System images will be reliable right? I mean, Windows handles it! It's a 1 time backup solution!

    000000000000000HHHHHHHHHHHHHHH WAIT NO IT'S NOT BECAUSE IT WAS MADE BY SOME POO IN LOO INDIANS ((((SPOILERS)))))

    So I format my whole hard drive with the System Image in my Backup drive and reinstall it. I boot from installation media and I click "Restore from system Image"

    It finds and recognizes it
    Cool
    I click next
    It confirms it
    It starts

    OH SHIT
    WAIT
    WHAT IS THAT?
    AN ERROR

    DAMN I GUESS IT WAS JUST GOING TO GOOD FOR ME

    Now I'm where I started. Arch Linux. But the different time is my WiFi drivers going out every 3 fucking minutes because it was coded by some neck beard not caring about quality but caring about MUH OPEN SOURCE FOSS

    I'm downloading a program on Linux to crack open these system image files and I'm hoping to Jesus, lord, and the holy spirit to be pure files and not be split files.

    On other notes, I got gifted a bible today for Thanksgiving. That was cool.

    VinLark Alright, so I needed Windows 7 for gayming and video editing. I've had this partition with windows on it for a little bit but it was 32bit. I decided to just wipe it and start again.

    Let's get some quick context to the front

    This is a fresh installation of Win 7
    7200RPM Hard drive
    Almost never used drive
    Not pirated

    First off, I couldn't even install it onto the HDD the normal way off a USB. I had to burn the ISO on the hard drive and then install it that way. Thanks Microsoft.

    I install it, my graphics drivers, and wifi drivers and i'm off.

    So just trying to update my fucking system was a HUGE hassle. Windows doesn't offer an ISO with all updates packed in, so I had to download 300+ updates at one time. The thing is, Windows update system is so messed up and shotty, it won't update without other updates which require this update which require this update. Amazing stuff.

    After that, trying to download anything was a huge hassle. Windows took 2 minutes to start up while on my 2006 Compaq it took 60.

    I couldn't even play games at the end. DirectX couldn't sign some cert file and I did everything I could to make it. I couldn't even install fucking .NET for sony vegas or literally anything that runs on Windows because it always got "corrupted".

    Also, about those updates? It stopped at 64% and wouldn't download them anymore. With the error "Windows is trying to install other updates right now. Try again in a few minutes"

    I'm going to Windows 10. Wish me luck
    VinLark Well well well. It had been interesting. Let Papa Vin tell you bout it.

    Found out the girl I took to hoco was an absolute whore. Still had fun at homecoming, just disappointed.
    I met some other girls and they don't have STDs so that's cool

    I got a GTX 1050 Ti

    I got a new WiFi adapter.

    School has been getting good. Gossip will eat you alive but DAMN it's juicy. I might sound like a teenage girl but shit man I can't resist.

    I'm typing this on an old mac keyboard.

    My birthday was October 21st and the only person who wished me was @proflayton123 on snapchat

    Speaking of which

    Add me up on snapchat
    bobpatton120

    Alright cool see you guys next month
    VinLark HOLY SHIT GUYS ITS 12 AM JUST GOT BACK FROM A LIT NIGHT WITH THE GALS LEMME TRY AND EXPLAIN IT ALL SWLOEHWIRTGNOIUENWRGOINOERGJ

    Alright, so my school was offering this thing called "Dine and Ride" where it would drive us to a place to eat, and to homecoming and back. My date and me went (with her friends and mine). It was really fun, the highlight though was the after party. I'm gonna get to that later.

    So I was so nervous I didn't eat anything but a couple of pieces of lettuce, that would come to bite me in the ass during the dance. I talked with some people and met up with some people and it got to the time where we would go to the dance. We go and it's super fun. Me and her loosen up a bit and dance the night away. But while this was happening I feel like i'm going to pass out or I got slipped something in my drink, because either way I didn't feel too good. Then my friend informs me that maybe it's because I didn't eat anything and only drank water so my blood sugar was null. During this time I sing some Taylor Swift songs and probably when I got too loose. 9 a clock came around when we are bused back to Artspace (the place to eat basically). Here comes the after party.

    So we all get to the 2nd floor stage (where we dance) and we have this lit DJ that plays some pumping jams. I proceed to eat some more stuff to avoid death and then I dance some more. It got to the point where we were jumping and dancing so hard the floor actually started caving in. We needed to spread out to prevent this one part of the floor from collapsing. We then literally dance the night away. I leave around 11:45.

    All in all, I had a really fun time that I would do even without a date. It was super fun.
    VinLark Guess who got a date to the homecoming dance.

    This guy B-)

    Thanks for all the encouragement people.
    VinLark Woah finally a blog that isn't a joke? Damn

    Ok so this blog post is going to be on a whim, as Gbatemp was kinda down last night.

    I went to a highschool event after school, it was pretty cool. But there is also this girl I likes that went to it also. Near the end where we go onto the football field to watch the game. I start breaking the ice and it goes alright. As I am walking to the field the girl and her friend catch up with me. We talk about classes and such. Then the girl I like says "Ya know Vincent, I love having you in Algebra, you're so nice!". I also have her friend in my speech class so she says something along the same line. Her friend is also in my Algebra class.
    And this wasn't even coming from a place where I do their homework or something. I just talk to them in those classes.

    So a few minutes later we get on the seats. The girl is sitting in front of me and the friend is sitting next to me. The friend is on her phone talking to her boyfriend, somethings going on or whatever. The friend says "WOW did he really just hang up on me?". Me trying to be comedic or whatever just chimes in and says Yes. I get some laughs but then the guy on the phone must of asked who was that because the friend said "Just a boy sitting next to me". Then the girl I like leans closer to her friend and says "that sexy boy next to you." I don't react as I don't think I was suppose to hear that.

    So the game goes on and her and her friends talk about homecoming (more girls came later on). They get on the topic of her and she says something like "Well i'm just waiting for somebody to ask me" They make a joke like "Just keep saying hey to him everyday until he asks you". And the thing is, I met her by her saying hey to me in my Algebra class. She's said hey to me ever since.

    This girl in particular has been going across my mind for a while now. i just don't know what to do. I would have to have brain damage to not see the signs, right? I want to ask her for homecoming. I also want some other input, as i don't want to talk to my mother about girls and my grandfather is working all week. One thing that really got me was I couldn't see him last weekend.

    Alright there goes another blog.

    This isn't a joke btw. This is what i've been using for the past 2 week. I use shitty public wifi and it stopped working on Arch Linux, so I run off a little partition of Android. it's suprisingly usable. I can do almost everything i can do on arch......well that's a lie but it works.

    VinLark Well what have I been up too? Doesn't matter, here I am to tell you about my story.

    So I made the amazing mistake of installing iOS 11 Beta on my only device, I'll admit that was my wrong doing. It was going fine.....until one day it just wouldn't unlock. I didn't care, I thought I could just use Apple's amazing proprietary software known as ITunes to work.....I never learn from my mistakes. Well I go to iTunes and use my 10.3.3 ipsw file to restore. Alright, I've done this before with no problema. "Extracting Software" takes fucking hours to complete, but that's alright. I just want my phone to work. So it extracts the software and........... it gets stuck in DFU mode.

    No problem, I can just do that fucky button combination. Oh ok, it's still the same. I wonder what the problem is....

    OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH ITUNES JUST DOESN'T DETECT IT ANYMOREEEEEEEE

    That's fine. I'll just unplug it, at least it tells me it needs to be restored r-right? So I restore it again, OOOOOOO BUT THIS TIME IT'S STUCK ON A BLACK SCREEN I LOVE YOU STEVE JOBS

    That's fine, I just had to put it in the restore process 2 other times.......

    So it gets past "Waiting for iPhone" and it actually does something. Awesome. It gets half way done and...............................................

    OH I FORGOT IT HAS TO CONTAQCT APPLE'S FUCKING NETWORK SERVICE TO SEE IF IT'S STILL BEING SIGNED YEAHHHHH

    Me having Ugandan internet going out every 5 minutes doesn't help

    and my computer says it has no internet connection dear god no

    ERROR 53 UR GONNA HAVE TO DO IT AGAIN

    I sit here looking at "Extracting Software" again. This has taken me sense 6am and it's 10am riight now. I have to go to work at 3:30 and I don't fucking need this. Itunes fucking STOP

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Alright, it's doing it for the 7th time. Let's see how it goes. It is going pretty good so far. God have mercy please

    Alright, it worked. It went through. Now the final challenge.

    I made a backup on another computer, this is my only backup. If iTunes doesn't let me restore from this, i'm kinda fucked and iTunes is a piece of shit. Come on, please.

    [​IMG]

    LETTTTTTTTS GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    Phone says Restore in Progress............

    come on

    Okay it's been 5 minutes and it's still estimating time...........

    upload_2017-9-3_10-39-51.png
    I literally do not have 4 hours, so I decided to fuck it and start from scratch.

    What have we learned today kids?

    Get android
    VinLark Yeah you know what this is
    VinLark Damn man I hate myself sometimes. I got up and my tongue was hurting like a motherfucker so I put some super expired orajel on it. The real kicker was it was practically empty and it wasn't enough orajel to fit on a pin needle tip. But being me and me being super anxious about my health, I put it on and went to my computer. As me being anxious grew it started feeling numb in my mouth and It felt like I couldn't breathe. Felt like I was drowning in a way. I went up and started running around the house. I don't know what else I could do. I also drank about a liter of water. Now i'm just sitting eating a bag of trail mix. I don't feel like going back to sleep but I have to be somewhere pretty early.

    So GBATemp. How's your night going
    VinLark I shouldn't have to say this, but this is objective.
    objective truth :^)

    IDEs, I personally don't like them. Never have. I have actually never NEEDED to use them. Even on Windows. Now on Linux, I have a reason to not use them even more. I can create python scripts using
    Code:
    gedit name.py
    save it and then
    Code:
     python name.py 
    . This goes for most everything I can think of. MAYBE you would need to use an IDE for java, maybe.

    inb4 "you just liek terminal cause u a script kiddy lol"
