RuneScape account banned :-(

I logged into RuneScape yesterday to find that my account had been disabled. A message from Jagex said I was banned for allegedly hacking another account.

As you could imagine, this was a most unpleasant surprise. There is little to gain from stealing some random guy's crap. I know Jagex sometimes makes mistakes, but this is beyond ridiculous. Anyone who thinks a player moderator and seven-year veteran would hijack accounts needs their heads checked.

I'm going to submit an appeal in the next few days and hope someone actually responds. Until that happens, I'll be playing on my backup account Ixfd64 Rs2 in the meantime. *crosses fingers*

on college dances and class IIIb lasers, part deux

I just got back from the Monster Bash a few hours ago. The residential staff joined forces with Cal Dining in organizing this dance. It was much better than the Dance & Casino Night on the 11th. You can can read my review of the Monster Bash here.

Of course, I just had to show off my laser again. The cool thing is that there was a fog machine. I was able to create the liquid sky effect by waving the laser around. That looked pretty awesome, although it was nothing like a real laser show. While there were also some black balloons, the laser only made one of them slowly deflate. Oh well.

The thing about being a laser enthusiast is that you can never have enough power. I've wanted a laser that could burn ever since receiving my Core in June. But now that I have this 35+ mW laser, I'm really hoping to get a 100+ mW one in the future. Talk about being spoiled. :P

on college dances and class IIIb lasers

I just got back from the Dance & Casino Night. The dance wasn't quite as fun as the one last October but was nonetheless enjoyable. You can read my review of the event here.

Like last year's event, this one didn't have any slow songs either. I guess most college students aren't very romantic. I've always wanted to ask a girl to dance with me, but that would be extremely awkward when there is no slow music.

On the bright side - no pun intended - I got to show off my new green laser at the dance. The cool thing is that I bumped into another guy who said he owned a similar laser from DealExtreme. It's always nice to meet fellow laser enthusiasts. :-)

happy 22nd birthday to me!

I just turned 22 years old. It's hard to believe an entire year has passed since I reached the legal drinking age. Where does time go?

I'm at Berkeley right now and likely won't do much besides study for my classes. On the other hand, I did have a nice dinner with my parents a couple of days ago. In any case, happy birthday to me and everyone else born on October 10. :-)

In other news...

The Cal Alumni Association is having its second Dance & Casino Night tomorrow. I'm so excited!
