What? Are you expecting a life story about me? Fugg Off and leave me alone.

  • Avoid /r/martialarts ?

    Not a question, just a warning. It's not really a martial arts subreddit, it is troll infested. Never before have I seen a bigger gathering of children who watch youtube tutorials all day and assume they know EVERYTHING.

    Trolls. Nothing but trolls.

    Also, hey, I'm back.

  • My laptop has been randomly crashing and I don't know what to do now. Any help, please?

    http://i.imgur.com/yxOklFf.jpg

    In the pic above displays what has been happening to me. That pic was taken 5 minutes ago on my phone.

    I don't know what has caused this. AVG finds nothing, and CCleaner has cleaned up everything now. Defrag has done nothing to help. I don't think it is a hardware problem either.

    The last things I installed and now uninstalled were a new Java update that actaully made firefox and Chrome act a LOT slower and buggy. I uninstalled Java all together and both Browsers operate normally now, but the OS, especially my C: drive will cause crashes at random times. Everytime I open to the C: to check on the programs or temp folder, the system immediately crashes and shows that window in the picture on top.

    I've also uninstalled motionjoy which I've found is Malware that messes with the registry. For anyone who want to use gaming controllers on their PC's should use "Better DS3" tool. Removing motionjoy hasn't shown any change.

    The other program I recently installed and used was Itunes. I'm not a big apple user myself and this was my first time using this program. I don't know why people use this, it seems kinda pointless.

    I don't know what else to do now, apart from restoring the laptop(A modified Lenovo Thinkpad E520), which will be a little hard to do with the HDD at 80% full and living on a capped broadband limits me to what I can download, so my Steam Library will need to be rebuilt slowly.

    What else can I do before deciding to restore my laptop? Is this a common problem or is there something else that is causing this grief?

    4 hours ago - 4 days left to answer.

    Additional Details

    I'll back it up tomorrow. I'm running individual scans on my most use programs. So far, I've found 5 threats in my C: Drive at 70% in. Could be anything by now.

    I have an external HDD to throw it all into.

    I haven't tried in safemode yet. I probably should next time. Just finished the scan. 7 files infected, all installers and some related to the OS. One file was a threat but has been removed.

  • Did anyone else get hacked by a Romanian?

    A notification alerted me of a login from Romania earlier today. This person had visited my Inbox possibly looking for something interesting.

    I don''t know what drove this person to do this, but apparantly there have been a spur of hackings lately from overseas. I'm wondering if anyone else in the world was hacked aswell. In NZ, Telecom was hacked, but I am not with them.

  • 1TB Ext HDD My Passport will not work on PS3. Am I missing something?

    I have converted it to FAT32 and set up folders similar to the PS3(MUSIC, VIDEO, etc). When I plug it in, the PS3 still won't recognize it. I plug it back in my computer and it still says that it is FAT32 and has all the folders in it.

    I don't know what else to do with it now. Tips? Is there something I missed?

    The Ext HDD just blinks and beeps doing nothing more.

  • A little warning: Who here is familiar with Brooklynmonk from Youtube?

    I've been watching his videos and while some are very educational, otehrs are pompous and disrespectful. He comes off as a bit of an **** and a self promoter.

    I've come across an arguement between him and another martial artist and he is completely being childish. You have to see it, its embarrassing.

    I'll interevine soon in that but I have to ask the martial artist and martial art fans here if they have encountered this man online or in person yet and what your thoughts of him were. Did you see him as enlightening or as a man child.

    Sorry if this comes off as a bit of a rant, but I have to know what people think of this "man". He really is a backward person.

  • Google has blocked me because of my imdb history. Why?

    I asked this before but got no real answers. Hopefully I do get more answers, because these complaints are becoming very annoying and disturbing. I don't even feel safe using google anymore. Its like I'm being stalked.

    Ok so I got this when I googled imdb to see if there are any good movies about to be released. Instead, I see this.

    "In response to a complaint we received under the US Digital Millennium Copyright Act, we have removed 1 result(s) from this page. If you wish, you may read the DMCA complaint that caused the removal(s) at ChillingEffects.org."

    Ok first of all, I'm not even from the US. second, the complaint set against me is for using google to search for the hunger games on imdb and apparantly on other sites I have never visted.

    They all lead to the hunger games and how to download the movie. I don't even like the hunger games and I have never used these sites listed or even tried to download this movie. I can't even lay a counter complaint because I'm not in an American state and the site is only accessed on an American ISP.

    No matter how I use google, whether to google youtube, imdb or even wikipedia, I am blocked. Basically, I can't use the internet. I can't even play online games without a notification saying I can't connect due to restrictions. Steam is blocked and so is Origin.

    What the **** do I do? I can visit sites as long as I use the address bar but I can't visit IMDB. I tried the sites that are alleged to have been sites that I have "used" to download the Hunger games 263 times, but I get a 404 page.

    Ok, great. Now all of a sudden, after I have posted this question, the ******* search engine allows me to use the sites again. The complaints are still at the bottom of the search results, but I am allowed to view the sites again which is pretty cool now, but I'm still pretty pissed off that this happened in teh first place.

    I mostly use the internet myself and I haven't shared it with anyone else. Very few other friends and family use it once in a few weeks and thats it. I mostly use it for social networking, playing games at times and watching youtube videos.

    the option to lay a counter complaint is still not available.

    There are now more complaints coming in for imdb searches that I haven't even made yet. All for movies I haven't even heard of yet.

  • So Wing Chun gave birth to modern Muay Thai? BS or what?

    So today in training this guy who is usually a real blow hard tells how modernized Muay Thai was actually created by a Wing Chun practitioner who wanted Wing Chun to become a full contact sport. So this dude goes to Siam to learn about this new sport muay thai. Now I knew Muay Thai was pretty shoddy in the hands and even kicking area and I already knew that Boxing was heavily implemented into Modern Muay Thai but according to this dude in the gym I go to, he says that the hand work(almost said job hah!) is from Wing Chun and not Boxing.

    I'm not sure whether to call Bullshiet on him or if its true. Anyone with any classical studies knowledge that can back this up or is he still full of himself as usual.

  • Can you believe this disrespect to Andy Hug?

    I was watching a fight on Youtube with Andy Hug and Chanpuek Kiatsongrit and despite a good Seidokan fight, the people leaving comments are being extremely disrespectful towards both fighters and most of them are overly proud Thai people and they seem to think that Andy Hug is a Taekwondo fighter.

    Its like these people purposely act stupid. Someone asked them if they knew who Andy Hug was or who the Thai fighter was(his name isn't listed in the title) and none of them could answer, except they just said, "Durrr Muay Thai best, this not muay thai! Durrr."

    Last year, I was insulted by these 3 thai guys who said that their style was the best blah blah blah and they were getting to annoying. I just had to drop em just to shut em up, honestly, if this is what a majority of Thai people and Ong Bak fans are like, then the IQ in the world is going to drop down to 70.

  • Why isn't Bokator mainstream like Muay Thai and Eskrima?

    I've been wondering this for a while now. I've seen Bokator training and fighters and they're very complete and effective. Is it a price thing or because of the Burmese?

    I think that Bokator should be more out there for the general public to know about since it looks a hell of a lot more interesting than the usual tripe we're being fed by the media, and half of that is fictional!

    Something else I've noticed is that Thai people don't want to acknowledge that most of their culture came from the Khmer. Whats up with that? Are they more racist than originally believed?

  • Does anyone here know the real truth about Muay Thai?

    I've noticed that ALOT of people on Yahoo Answers and Youtube and Facebook don't actually know the true history of Muay Thai and what it really is and what it teaches.

    So my question here is, what do you know about Muay Thai? How much about the REAL Muay Thai do you know of?

    The most accurate answer wins. Its really funny how ignorant people can be about it. They've been brainwashed by Movies and UFC.

  • I visited this Muay Thai gym and well, i wasn't impressed. McDojo anyone?

    http://tinyurl.com/3dxb8ao

    Im prone to bashing on gyms that are obviously bad but I cant bring myself to bash this one so easily since its the only other Muay Thai gym in the Town. But I just cant help it.

    I went to see a class because ive recently moved home and they're closer than the old gym i went to. Now these guys claim to be all about the Technique but I was watching them and I've been doing Muay Thai for 3 years and they are horrible. They kick badly, they hold their hands up very badly and the teacher isn't loud enough i mean he teaches like he learned from a movie. No offense but this place is all shite IMO.

    What do you guys think? The teach 3 year olds, they do the whole Gyunaye(bow) before and after the class, the members have NO Discipline at all and the instructor(1 guy) doesn't really seem to care.

    Is this some kind of Bug? Does everybody get this once in a while? I haven't even been warned for anything yet.

    I can still view my profile and do other things. Its made me a bit worried. I've noticed alot of people who get alot of points end up suspended too.

  • I'm writing an Adventure/Horror survival story and well, how is the first chapter?

    Its not going to be like a 24 Chapter novel or whatever. Just something short and sweet.

    I'm wondering if i should set it in chapters or just leave it without chapters. I'm planning to split it into 3 parts though. So each stage tells the story in a different tone.

    So its about a group of teens who decide to go camping in the Forest nearby the town 3 days before school starts. The 6 friends manage to buy a case of beer, prepare camping gear and essentials for the weekend. Although they were warned of the dangers of the Forest, they wave them off as senile superstition.

    While they believe that they are alone, they soon learn that they're not the only ones in the Forest.

    Raumanga, 1,000 paths. A place where Thousands of ancient tribes once waged a long war that they believe has not yet been finished.

    Awakening

    A crack in the air and a great flash brightens the sky. I awake from my dreams noticing a lighting storm flashes across the country side. I've never seen a storm like the one i am seeing now. Hail stones, rain, strong squalls and lightning all at the same time.

    Before i can get out of bed, I am surprised by my younger sister who runs into my room,"Marcus! can i stay with you tonight please, I'm scared".

    "Tino, you're almost 12 years old now, you shouldn't come into my room when you get scared"

    "But I'm not strong like you or Dad, I can't face my fears." Her eyes begin to water with tears and her cheeks turn a bright red. With a deep sigh, I get out of my bed and let her in.

    "Keep your feet warm OK."

    I place a pillow on top of her feet to keep her warm.

    "Warm Feet, Warm heart right" She says brightly with a smile.

    I plant a kiss on her forehead and ask if she wants some hot chocolate but she has already fallen asleep.

    Tino Aroha Greene, I've been looking after my sister ever since our Mother disappeared with our brother... her twin brother. She never really had a Female figure to look up to growing up. I mean a proper female figure. That gold digger my Dad has been seeing doesn't really count as a good enough role model.

    "What do you think you're doing boy?" snaps a tall figure in the doorway. As the lightning flashes brightly in the hallway, I can see her short blond hair, pale skin and bright circular amber eyes.

    "Just making myself some Hot Chocolate Aurelia." I snap back "Would you like a cup?"

    She ominously walks towards me, her slim arms sway back and forth. Im almost hypnotized at how attractive she is, but before i realize it, shes standing next to me. Aurelia Kaheru, she easily towers over me with her six foot two frame.

    "I think I can manage my own cup." She says with a grim look to her face. "I wouldn't want you to make any mistakes like the last time, boy."

    "No ma'am, we wouldn't want that to happen again." I take my cup and walk back to my room, leaving her with a disgusted look. Before I can open my door, she says something that turns my stomach.

    "I've told your father to put a lock on Tino's door. After all, she really shouldn't be running around this late like many ill-mannered children do. Right boy?"

    Sickened, I go into my room and make sure that its closed and blocked off with a desk before I slam my cup onto it. My hand begins to burn from the boiled water, but I'm to angry to notice. I just want to get out of this house and take Tino with me.

    "Marcus? Are you scared?" asks a half sleeping Tino, her eyes barely open and drool sliding down her chin.

    "No Tino. Close your eyes now, and dream of a better time." as i attempt to reassure her, I see her eyes widen up in fear.

    "I can't, I can't. The eyes are always in the darkness." She stands on the bed and starts panicking "Their eyes are always watching!"

  • Why don't the Refs see Quade Cooper punching the other teams?

    I've noticed that in alot of his matches, especially against New Zealand Teams like the Crusaders, Quade Cooper always punches the other players and no one gets him for it. He especially loves to punch Richie Mccaw. I remember in one game he punched Mccaw in the head TWICE on TV and no one did anything about it.

    Do people just let him do what he wants just because he's a good player?
