AdBlock Plus Developer Sold Out

So it has come to my recent attention that the developer of AdBlock Plus has sold out.  He is now allowing for "acceptable advertising", this is beyond infuriating.  It means that unwelcome changes are coming to our beloved Adblocking Extension.

Here is where you can read about the "acceptable advertising" https://adblockplus.org/en/acceptable-ads

I won't engage all the details but these are the most prominent.

I've been noticing that while my readers do read, many don't leave comments, none at all really leave comments.

Interesting Service For Protecting Email

In my travels across the Internets, I have discovered a very interesting service that allows you to post a short link to your email and protect it from spam.

Emotions

I need to really stop letting my emotions get the better of me and then lashing out at people or things.  It's not going well for me when I do that...

Sorry forum people's.  I'm a bit of a mess right now and I know that doesn't excuse my actions.

Finally Moved To TEST Chrome

After much deliberation and lots of searching for extensions.  I have finally managed to move to Chrome for the purposes of testing it.  There are a lot of different things on here, extension wise, but if all does as I want it to.  It will be alright.

Still Working On Skyrim

Due to the PS3 issues for Skyrim, I've completely abandoned the PS3, save for it's exclusive titles, which it has more of so a certain someone needs to have no worry of me not playing it, that being said; I was able to take my month old copy

Technology

We are in the year nearly 2012. It's time to upgrade old, DEAD technology. Get off the SDTV, the Mono/Stereo, and the analog.

It's time to get HDTV's', surround sound systems, up to date computer hardware, and component/hdmi cables.  Technology is an ever moving forward thing, you can't hold onto dead outdated crap. Especially crap that's no longer supported.  Hell, stereo is slowly becoming obsolete in favor

Rules

I'm getting really sick and fucking tired of this THING about rules.  This hatred, it annoys me.  Rules are there for a reason to keep order and stop chaos.  They are NECESSARY.

Let's take my Skype group for example.

My God What Has Happened To Me?

I was sorting all of the threads on our lovely forum over at Runic Games by the most replies and I went back and read one of my earlier threads.

Skyrim New Patch Woes

Bah, the new 1.2 patch has caused a mess of issues to be fixed.

Resistances no longer work on your character and dragons fly backwards.

This is so annoying...I hope they get this fixed really, REALLY quickly.

People aren't going to want a to play a game that suddenly got stupidly hard because of a major bug like that.

Tired of Shaving

This constant shaving every week is beginning to weigh on me.  I hate it.  I'm tired of it.


Seriously, I hate shaving.  I either get razor burn, it yanks my poor hair out, or I cut myself (I use a beard trimmer).  I'm tired of it.  Just give me something I can spray/rub/smear onto the areas and be done with it with a trashcan and paper towel.  I love the smooth skin feel I get but it's not worth the horrid razor burn and bleeding.

I'm looking for products that kill the hair or make it go away for an extended time.  The caveat is they can't burn or hurt.

Is there such a thing?  Inquiring minds would like to know.

My God Skyrim

You have to be the best game that I've played in a while.  Your graphics are amazing for this age and your gameplay is fantastic.  The RPG world is awesome, there are secrets and loot everywhere, Tons of perks/skills and you can play how you want.

Most of the time I am playing you,

Update On The Internet Situation

So, we got our brand new Cisco Docsis 3.0 3010 and we are still having intermittent issues with the connection so in light of this, they are going to be sending out a specialist to check the lines.  I suspect that there is something wrong with them, be it damage or otherwise.  This appointment is undetermined but oh does it just keep getting better.

This could end up knocking us offline for 24 hours to a few days, but if it solves the damn problem, I'm all for it.

I Won't Be Leaving Afterall

It seems I was wrong about how people felt about me at the forum, and many things were said yesterday that put things into perspective.

I wont' be leaving it and I hope that we can grow as a community.

It comes with great pain that I write this post

I'm thinking of leaving my favorite forum.  I've grown tired of being talked about behind my back, whispered about in PM and IM's and being shit on every time I try to contribute to the community.

I was banned temporarily as punishment for being a dick head and I've taken the steps to make my apology worthwhile but for some it's apparently not good enough.

Internet Woes At An End

So, it's been a bit before a nice update between the crappy net and Skyrim, I've been busy.

We had a tech out here about 3 days ago and ran some tests because our net kept dropping when there wasn't any outages, anyways turns out the modem needed replaced.

So he goes out to his truck to get the new modem

Skyrim!

I can't say enough about this game, it's amazing.  If you haven't played it yet, do yourself the favor and get the bastard.

I'm currently rolling an archer/stealth/warrior character.

Omg so much to do in this game and it's so much fun.  I still love just running around doing nothing at all and just exploring.

This trumps Oblivion 10 fold.

I also found out how to tell what disease you have.  Somehow I got Brain Rot, joy..

Rap..that I Actually Like?? What Is This?

It's been a very, very, long time since I've liked any FORM of rap music.  But I can honestly say that day is over. I've stumbled across a interesting idea/take on rap.

My Impressions, After FINALLY, Making The Jump To Windows 7

Ok, so over the past week, I finally did it.  I backed up all my stuff, said goodbye to my XP only programs and beloved operating system, formatted my HDD, and installed Windows 7.  It was some touch and go getting everything backed up, but when it came down to the actual install of 7

Something Is Bugging Me Lately

It's bugging me and I don't know what it is..

It just sits there in the back of my mind, picking at me, but I can't explain it, at least not rationally in the sense that one could explain something.

Why Catwoman Sucks in Batman: Arkham City

Ok, so we've all gotten it, played it, and loved it.  However, just one thing REALLY irks me about this game and I'm sure it's irking others as well.  It's Catwoman as a playable character.  If you were worried about whether getting her is a deciding factor, it's not, not at all.  She sucks, 100% and I'm going to tell you why.

Down with ACTA!

This thing is junk. Read up on it and then throw it the fuck out.  It threatens our Internet and our rights.

It's time for real cyber rights

Update to the Internet Situation

So the tech ended up coming out on Saturday instead of Sunday, yay!

Anyways, they looked at everything inside and tested the signals and what not, found it to not be a problem so they went out to the box.

Seems the box needed to be replaced

Can't help but feel a little sad

My neighbor downstairs will be moving away at the end of the month and I'm both sad and happy at the same time.

He's a great person to talk to, but at the same time when he's drunk, he can be a noisy son of a bitch.

Still, though I'm getting a melancholy feeling of him leaving.

Hey, at least he isn't stuck in this dump till April.

Internet Complications and Woes

IMPORTANT: My Internet is acting weird and I may not have much time.  A tech is coming out Sunday to look at it.  It's been going out for extended periods of time.  I'll be back as soon as I can.

Reveiw of Batman Arkham City

This game is AMAZING.  From the second I popped it in to the time I turned it off, it's just been PURE fun.

I love being able to glide around the city

Roommate Robbed AGAIN

It's about 4am and my roommate comes home early by 3 hours or so.  I ask him what's wrong and he says he got robbed again.  Thankfully, he is ok and they didn't get anything of ours.

Shit's getting ridiculous and I told him it's time he start seriously thinking about moving to a new job and a new area.

Apparently, they made off with $95 from the register and the .45 they had pointed at him.

He was sent home by the co-owner.

Bill S.978

I'm just going to start out by saying I completely and 100% eject this bill.  It's not good for the Internet or for us as users.

For those that don't know what it is, it's a the new

Apartment Is Becoming More Trouble Then It's Worth

So I think it's time to give the full back story on the apartment and why I bitch so much about it.  This will be a very detailed and bitchy post of misery.  Enjoy.

Internet Vs IRL

Let me just start out by saying there is NO difference between these two.

NONE.

Anything and everything you do in either/or effects the other.  I'll break it down for you by using the most common reasons people think that the Internet "doesn't matter" nor do their actions on said Internet.

Blog Syncing

OK, so I finally got it work using an application on Facebook called RSS Graffiti.

Shoutout to these fine people for this app.  It checks about every ten minutes and if it finds a new post, it will add it automatically to my wall.  Thank you to the people who made this!

However, this should have been natively supported by Facebook itself.  I mean seriously, isn't it supposed to be a SOCIAL networking service?  For shame, Facebook.

It seriously took me like an HOUR and half to figure this shit out after googling and messing about.  Ugh.  What a goddamn headache that was.

In the end though I guess it's worth it.  I hope my Facebook friends enjoy my blog as well.

Noise

I hate it, in all forms.  Bass, music, screaming, yelling, TV's, w/e.  I have a severe problem with noise due to the OVER sensitive nature of my hearing.  I have REALLY, REALLY good hearing, probably because I'm half blind!

I also think I've further conditioned myself due to the events of my childhood and growing up to more readily pay attention to it.  The noises that most people

Minecraft

I don't see the real big deal with this game, to me it's just like extreme lego building mixed with enemies, lag, and a pain of broken or nauseatingly boring tasks and farming.

With the latest update coming it may finally BECOME a GAME.  It's set to add in many RPG elements and such.

Anyways, due to the help of a friend I'm playing Zelda Adventure latest version but I'm noticing many of the mechanics of Java are broken.

Introduction

Oh I see you have stumbled across my little blog here.  This is my own personal area of the web where I can vent my feelings and share my ideals with the world.

I choose the name Iroarc because it is short for my full title which is Intriguing Reflections of a Realist Cynic.

On this blog you will mostly find ranting, cussing, and ideals that the norm will mostly not agree with.  I am not normal, not by a longshot.

You shall also take great delight in my misery and pain, you sadistic bastards you.

I hope you enjoy your stay and comments are certainly welcome.
