Moved in

non blog update:
I have moved into my new apartment.. its been fun.. (ugh)

I have been moving and being lazy about it.. but everything is gone from the old apt..

i got a new computer desk which is a L shape.. and i am still working out how EVERYTHING will fit on it...

only major issue i have had is getting sub $100 speakers (some speakers broke and i needed to replace)

And the cardboard.. (should i just put it all out by the street? or what? Pickup is not till Thursday)

The ferrets have moved in good.. not sure if i will let them just run around ... maybe in the bathroom.. (worried about them pissing/scatting where i wont be able to clean up)

I don't have a bed yet.. I hope that will change soon... but everything is coming in good

All the dishes and fridge stuff is moved.

MOVING DAY

Well folks.. its moving day.. i am getting everything out..
My father is on his way to get the truck so i can move the daybed and dresser and TV..

I just found a good desk for 89 bucks @ staples which i will get later.. but its the last time i will be posting from this place

95 fishing and 82 Strength

Well over the last two-three days I have managed to get two new levels

because i am barbarian fishing I got a Strength level :) LVL 82!!!

And just a few minutes ago i got my Fishing LVL 95!!!!

I am hoping the 219.5 Admiral Pies that I have left will last long enough to get me to 96.. if not I can make 50 or so at a time till I do level

I have 8278 shark to go till I get 96 and don't need pies anymore :)

I have 14507 shark in the bank and 38731 shark left to go till 99 fishing :)

99 Fishing.. Eventually.

Ok, lets get this post started, I have been for the last 2-3 months working on a new goal after I became a Rune Miner...

I decided to get 99 Fishing. I liked fishing and it was something I could do while watching TV or reading DIGG articles/news.

So I set off.. and quickly got 91 and 92 fishing... and when I was close to getting 93 fishing Barbarian Fishing came out..

So I tried to make a little Story about it

News Flash: Sharks are endangered

Shark numbers in the Fishing Guild Drop and Guild members blame Mementh.

The regular members of the Guild are noting how fast Mementh is fishing Sharks and worry that the Shark population will need assistance from Guthix to stay in balance.

So Far the Guild members have seen Mementh take out between Seven Thousand and Ten Thousand sharks. And they do not see a end in sight because Mementh has been heard saying he is going to fish "At least another Fifty-six Thousand to get my 99 fishing."

When asked to comment Mementh replied. "Hey, I pay my Guild dues just like everyone else.. I am just trying to get 99 fishing before my birthday in November".

Mementh

UPDATE: Due to the MASSIVE drop on the Sharks population
the Fishing guild decided last week to BAN Mementh
from using a Harpoon in there guild. Catherby Beach
officials declared that they would also ban Mementh
due to the 'Shark Fishing Accords of 2005'.

Not to be deterred Mementh went on a quest.. using
the spare 1200 tuna fish he had banked from
Sweetcorn and Tuna Tater assembly of a few months
ago. He fished the 1200 salmon and got the
flour and pie dishes required to make 1200 Admiral
Pies.

Upon seeing him walk in with that many pies they
realized that Mementh had 92 fishing and was
near 93.. near enough that he could fish sharks in
the Barbarian Fishing way he had been taught
only weeks earlier.

When asked about the unique strategy Mementh
commented "I only need the pies to get to 96
fishing. I wont need to eat for a year but I will
not need any assistance" And after pulling up a
Giant Shark
Mementh commented "I think this Crabclaw-Hook
Really helps, It also protects my hand from the
shark biting." Right after saying this Mementh
Leveled to 93 fishing

Hear Ye Hear Ye
Hensforth the Character known as Mementh is hereby Banned from using Pies to increase his fishing level.
The Fishing Guild Commity has declared that Mementh can no longer use any sort of Boosting pies or potions to allow him to reach 96 fishing temporally.

"We don't mind him using the Barbarian Fishing Technique he learned, its just he is leaving pie dishes and half eaten pies all over the docks.
We have had Five other players who have slipped and fallen into the water. The rescue efforts have caused the guild to shut down while rescue efforts were underway.
He can continue fishing sharks once he has gotten his skill level to the required 96 Fishing to use the Barbarian fishing technique." The public Relations Spokesperson replied when asked for a comment.

Some fellow guild members have stated that they believe this ban is a crock. A Guild member wishing to be Anonymous stated "The Guild Commity is scared, not since the opening of the guild has one person taken out that many sharks in such a short time. They fear for the sharks population and the cost to breed more sharks to replace the ones Mementh has gotten."

Mementh meanwhile has been seen in the town of "Burgh de Rott" fishing sharks.
When asked to comment the Towns leader Elisabeta stated this "Since Mementh came we have had food on our tables *EVERY NIGHT* thanks to Memenths donations.
We are stronger and have been able to rebuild more since we no longer have to scrounge around for food and risk getting caught by the Vampyres. We have been able to keep more villagers healthy because they have food in there bellies."

When asked about the possibility of overfishing the sharks Elisabeta replied "Right now we are worried about keeping people healthy and safe. The sharks in the ocean breed on there own and we have not had any fishermen that had the level to fish them in generations. So they are overpopulated right now."

I mainly moved to Burgh De Rott because of the issues of wasting the Pies i had. I was getting 15-20 shark using two pies at times.. it was also maddening to find the "shark spot" out of the other fishing spots.

I also got myself a "uniform" Pirate hat with eyepatch, Rabbit foot necklace, stripy blue pirate shirt and blue pirate pants, a Crabclaw-hook, and Moger Flippers. I carry with me a Rune Satchel and a Frying pan.

I also got my pmod status back several months ago which resulted in at least one comical response
Here are a few




This one MIGHT have been a responce.. anyways its funny


This one was from a Clanchat that was just freaking funny

So on we go... 13366 Sharks fished and 39875 more sharks till 99.

I plan on using the Sharks to get 99 Cooking.. Only 11591 more sharks till I get enough to get 99 cooking. :)

DIGG!!!

All I am gonna say is this, If its has DRM its worthless.. good step but if i can't use it in my IPOD then I don't want it.

New Computer/Memenths Computer History

Well one of the 512 meg Ram sticks died two nights ago during a botched attempt to upgrade...

I spent close to 4-5 hours @ Compusa and Thanks to a Drew and Patrick I came to the sad realization that this computer wont last for much longer....

Its been going for close to three years and is still pretty good.. but battle weary...

So A new computer has been ordered... Its... Its not a homebuilt.. its bought pre-built which.. for me is the FIRST time I have had such a computer....

I started off with a generic computer from "Wizards of DOS" in Murfreesboro TN. for my 15th birthday/Xmas (i think it was more Xmas

It was a 486 25mhz that had 8 megs ram.

I loved it because it came with WINDOWS 95!!!!!!!!!

WOW...

It got upgraded for my birthday with a 100mhz CPU and I think double the ram.

*I can't remember much on the years/time just the order)
Then there was a Pentium 1 90hmz sent by a friend online...

I upgraded that to a P1 233...

Then I did my first major upgrade to a AMD 500mhz chip

I upgraded again to a 1ghz AMD a while later..

And then to the current one the 1.83ghz AMD.

I know for a fact that at least one part whither it be the case or a addon card was moved from the old to the new configuration for some time ( I dont' count Hard Drives)

Nothing of the original 486 25 still remains.. but its spirit.. And it wont go any further.... Unless.... I could "take" a addon card for adding in more hard drives and add it in for a few weeks?

Is that enough time for the spirit to transfer?
