New gear again; this time a Casio CTK-270 keyboard
Current mood: In the mood for taking more risks
I was walking around at Dirt Cheap, and I saw a keyboard with a $99.99 price tag, but I couldn't see the reduction percentage. I asked the manager what the price would be on it: he told me $99.99 with a 70% discount. $30.00. I was willing to take the risk of it not being a working keyboard, and being unable to return it or exchange it due to Dirt Cheap's policy of no refunds or exchanges, and the fact that it did not come with an adapter kinda made it feel like a fun gamble. 30 adrenaline filled minutes, and (probably shouldn't have spent) 50 dollars later, I find that it is a working keyboard, in good condition, with midi capability. The only thing is, is that my computer is a newer model, with windows 7, and doesn't support casio midi, along with casio not planning on updating it, that's all that's negative. But then again, I don't really need MIDI.
I fixed it. Now it runs like any other legit psp. HAHAHAHA. Take that, dark alex. I had to go into recovery mode, move a few folders around, and then I ran the run function, which reset it to 1.5 psp firmware. Now I can play all of them games.
Current mood: pissed enough that imma stab me somebody
I bought a psp off of ebay, and a few games to go with it. I get it, and then, it decides that it can't play final fantasy tactics. It will play everything else, but not fft. It turns out that it is cracked with dark alex bullshit of some sort, and in order to fix it, I am going to have to learn over 9000 different methods to restore it back to original psp firmware. Seriously, I'm pissed. I have a japanese import game that I hope works on it. (Seriously around 50 bucks) I am going to be pissed if it doesn't work.
What in the hell happened to good old fashioned, put the disc in, turn the power on, play? No, they have to come up with firmware, and firmware cracks that never seem to work, and then you spend over 100 dollars just to play a few games that the goddamn psp can't play. So what am I left holding? A paperweight that I have invested well over 100 dollars into. I hope that my pandora battery works for this damn thing. If not, I am going to have around 150 dollars worth of crap that I can't even play.
Seriously, f*ck you sony. Get your shit together, or get out. It gets pretty goddamn aggravating when I try to update fimware, and I get "System Error DADADADA."
Happy new year to all of you. Just figured I would post my resolutions.
1. Learn more complex songs. 2. Exercise more/lose weight. 3. Hopefully find a band to play in/places to do stand-up. 4. Bring my GPA up to at least a 3.0. 5. Get a girlfriend/female friend to talk to/hang out with. 6. Pass Precalculus. 7. Hopefully not have another depressing year like my previous ones. 8. Open myself up to others. (Get out of my shell)
Not much here, about to go purchase Christmas presents. My parents say that they don't want anything. They tell me that my two nieces already have plenty, my older brother told me he don't want anything, and I don't know what my oldest brother wants. That leaves nobody for me to purchase a present for. Sure does get lonely around this time of the year. I don't have any friends to hang out with around here. (my hometown) So I lock myself in my bedroom, and stay on the internet. I just can't seem to get along with my family at all. My older brother called me the other day, and we talked for about 10 minutes. It was mainly asking me what I wanted for Christmas. And then it somehow jumps to the topic of "Why don't I have a girlfriend." I don't have one, and apparently, it isn't normal not to have one at my age. (almost 19) I'm not sure. Well, till next time,
