You use Reason for your music, is it an easy program or is there a lot of work involved?

AND scary as shit. I opened the thing and it was like...50 thousand panels. I didn't even know where to begin. I'd probably have to take a class or read a book on it. And DJ is your copy legit?

Of course, no one here has ever pirated... anything...

Actually, besides a couple ROMs, I really don't pirate, because of virus', wasted time and that feeling that I'm cheap.

I do it for school. To hell if I'm gonna pay 300-600 dollars for some of the programs I need to do homework at home, and STILL not be able to use said programs for professional work. They can freaking bite my big fat ass.

I'm with Wildcard.

MaxX, I pirate quite a bit, and I've NEVER had problems with a virus (from pirated things that is)

I have. Pirating works out on a personal level. But getting stuff from larger sources like Kazaa puts you in a high risk situation for virusi

I was just wondering. I might need to look into a good music authoring program soon cause it'd certainly look good on a resume since I'm looking heavily into multimedia production right now.

I lost all the programs I had from you with the recent format. I have to start all over again, plus I never got to mess with any of it heavily. =(. I'll probably be working alot more with my computer for awhile and laying off of the video games while in school. I'm also planning on picking up a few books (maybe one on php) and learning some stuff since Web Design I is gonna be a freaking knock over class. Even though I should probably learn XML since next semester I'm supposed to take a new advanced Flash Script class and one of the things we learn is how to program MX files to react to XML.

So on the subject: Any good languages or programs to learn? I'm looking into Reason, Php, XML, and maybe CSS.

Thats the beauty of paying your own tuition. Freedom of choice.

Course the horror of it is the 20,000 in debt I have racked up over school loans for Purdue. Go figure?

My friend Steve does music on his computer professionally. If you want, Wildcard, I can see what he uses and maybe get you a copy.

Keep in mind he also has like 2 synths, drums, a keyboard (the music kind), a bass guitar, turn tables, mixers and a regular electric guitar.

I have a music keyboard with the serial cable to hook it into my computer.

Course I've never done so.

Yeah if you'd check on that for me Nix I'd appreciate it. I still need to get some school programs from you now that I know my windows won't tell me my trial is up in a month.

Nix.. perhaps you can help me out with this one(but anybody else feel free to jump in).

I have finally configured my router to let me run an FTP server... but unfortunately I have a dynamic IP address and being on the very edge of my DSL service area gets me disconnected 2 or 3 times a day. I'm often not at my computer when this happens and when I come back I have a new IP address (thus fuckin up anybody downloading off me).... I'd like to set up a instant messenger away message that would auto update my IP addy when I came back online... so people could IM "HalosIP" and get an away message "Disconnected again huh? Don't computers suck... new IP = 69.69.96.96 Enjoy the rest of your download"

Any ideas?

THis isn't exactly what you were looking for, but back when I had a DSL connection I used something called dns2go.

Its a free service where you install a routing program on your computer (tiny as hell) and it basically connects to the dns2go server, then updates your IP in its records.

So you can make a "domain name" for yourself like say, "halo.d2g.com" so that when people want to log into your FTP, they go into ftp.halo.d2g.com.

Now even if your computer gets disconnected, as long as it reconnects on its own, it will log back into dns2go on its own automatically and rebuild the connection.

This is sweet too, because if someone is fucking with your FTP, or you run a website and the heat starts coming down on you, you can just turn off the dns2go forwarding service and boom, they can't touch you.

It should be found at http://www.deerfield.com

Most of the roms I pirate are from games I actually own, the rest of the stuff I pirate is just cause I'm poor and college is expensive.

Upon looking into DNS2GO I found this blaring me in the face...

"Important: Effective October 1, 2002, Deerfield.com has switched its free DNS2Go service to a paid subscription model. New customers learn more. "

This is at 20 bucks a year for 1 name. Forget it... I don't need to run an FTP server THAT badly. I'm going to look up some dummy versions of it that aare hopefully still free... in the meantime... what else ya got?


EDIT:: Dummy service FOUND.

http://www.dynu.com does the same thing and has a BASIC (free) client. Yay!

Deerfield you bastards!

Ah well, thanks for the update Halo, I may need one of those again some day.

And Kris, congratulations on figuring out what every post-secondary student eventually learns.

College/University is not a lesson in your subject of choice, its a lesson in patience (or desperation). I think that most HR Managers today don't know this, because they themselves are tired old relics left from 30 or 40 years ago when you didn't need a Post Secondary Degree, you just went and got a job after HS.

while sitting in pre pre pre pre pre pre arithmatic......... my friend being bored out of his skull... sat down and compiled all the hours we're going to be in class and compared it with the tuition... he then was able to figure out that we effectively are paying 40 cents a minute to sit in class... with no refunds or rainchecks for zoning out, dozing off, or just flat out not showing... sucks some ass doesn't it? College should be viewed as a damned monopoly... the only thing that gets away with charging that muc are phone sex lines.. and those don't take 4 years to hang up on.
