I'm Bored and Broke, I Need Help Finding Something To Do! - Page 4

post #31 of 54
Take up a martial art? Climb a mountain? (If one is available..i keep for getting im in canada ) you could find a new addicting game to LAN with friends? Go
beyond learning how the hardware in your computer functions, and start learning about the actual architecture of your processor? I'm currently reading everything I can on the Deneb architecture =)

Edit wikipedia. That's what I did between like 13 and 17; by then I was an admin. Saying "I'm in the 0.01% of users who hold any power in the administration of the encyclopedia" helped me get into a boarding school, and I'm sure it'll help for college too.

You're doing it wrong.
Hey hey hey, no need to blast now. These are things to do in my spare time. IMO, I have found an ideal equilibrium between computers and my social life. Hell, if you go back and read one of my earlier posts, you'll see me explaining that I might need to take up home decoration/renovation after the party I threw last weekend. Parents out of town = a helluva good time. Its hard to convince people that I'm not a total computer nerd when this is all being said on a site dedicated to overclocking your central processing unit, but then again, I don't really have anything to prove to you. You're image of me could be a fat 30 yr old sitting in his one room apartment eating chips on a saturday night, but it wouldn't really affect me anyways.

Right now, website development seems like a great idea. I tried out music production software, and discovered that I really don't have much interest for that stuff. My plan is to use Adobe dreamweaver and Adobe fireworks to get it done, but if you all have any better recommendations I would still like to hear them.

P.S. I am slowly trying to get into case mods. I recently did a paint job of my case, and my next plan is to put in a side window.

I suck at math, so programming isn't an ideal option.

Keep those suggestions coming!

Go down to any hardware store and buy a bag of 200~ Jump Rings and make some chainmail.

If you don't want to do what is essentially medievil knitting, then mabye buy a cheap 15w electronic soldering iron and read up online about small electronics you can make?

Some of the things I would like to do if I had the time you have....

1. Learn Japanese
2. Learn C++ (There are plenty of tutorials on youtube)
3. Learn some video editing or photo editing
4. Play free-to-play video games
5. Clean up my computer room and rearrange everything and draw some art in the walls.

learn some java = create Android App = profit ( 100 sells = like 70$ or something like that lol)

learn to make a website , there are 2 ways , the easy way or the hard way , this days there are lots of website builders ... i recomend Adobe Muse ( i got it for free if you know what i mean wink.gif )

ive made 2 websites already , really simple ones , one for 700 and the other for 500 ... photoshop and google helps alot to create logos . Btw lots of people would love websites like the landscaping dude , pool cleaners , pet groomers and walkers , babysitters etc , and love the facebook and tweeter integration stuff too

you can make it! biggrin.gif




















............ or just play with yourself till 11 pm ...............................
