  • Wiring On The Backside Of The Board
    680 words
    Amiga 1080 Monitor Modifications A number of Amiga 1080 monitors were built by Toshiba. The people at Toshiba could have done a better job in a couple of respects: First, they did a poor job of extracting vertical sync pulses from the video signal that comes from the Amiga. This produces an error in the interlacing when the Amiga is used in 320400 or 640400 display modes. When you look closely at the screen you see alternating line spacings. It also gives characters a ragged look. The modificati...
  • Winged Snail And The Armadillo
    671 words
    Adam Hallowell Art History John Wilde Gallery Paper Well walking through the gallery the only piece that stood out to me was John Wilde's piece 'A Tribute to the Rubber Stamp #7' a silver point on paper. The piece itself has a very simple composition that contains a hand coming into the page from the left side about about a third of the way up the page. The arm has a shirt on with a pinstripe jacket over it. On the right side of the page is a six banded armadillo with a snail with wings. These a...
  • Test Papers And Answer Sheets

    Caught In the Act Just take it, Shiloh whispered excitedly. Holding out a innocent looking ball point pen. Looks are deceiving though, because folded into that simple black pen was a piece of paper that decided fate. That paper contained the answers to our fifth period history test. At this point in our young lives that paper was worth more than gold. Despite this, I still hesitate. I mean, yeah, Ive cheated before, but nothing like this. Memories of last night drift through my thoughts, when I ...
  • This Look Like The Mall Back Home
    543 words
    A Scary Conflict I can remember taking a family vacation out of town somewhere back in the 80's. Like every other black family, I was the little kid in the back seat of the car being ignored by my parents and older relatives. In my mind I'm thinking, "Why does my mom ignore me when we have company" I don't know. I was a kid I didn't understand those things at the time. On the other hand, we had been driving for hours. So the family decided to take a rest stop at the mall. I hate it when I get st...
  • Backs Of Her Legs
    1,363 words
    Many of the guests had already arrived. Everyone was looking magnificent, but the main attraction had not arrived yet for JV. The fireplace cast its shadows on the walls as the flames danced on the logs. The food table was set, candles lit and he had just put the finishing touches on the dinner when the doorbell rang. It was 7: 00 PM, and she was right on time. He had spotted her when he first entered the room. She was standing next to a man that completely ignored her. From and other cider's po...
  • Old And Beautiful Church Sunlight
    1,116 words
    I knocked quietly three times on the brown shiny door of the office. I needed to speak with Mr. Green, the manager of the building site. I needed more working hours as I barely had enough money to get by. Looking around the building site I awaited an answer. Large piles of rubble rested on uneven ground and men chatted whilst they worked. A long narrow wooden bench sat at one end where a few workers gathered for a quick coffee and a cigarette. The door behind me opened and I turned clockwise to ...
  • Its Name
    630 words
    As the dark figures enlarge through the thick fog, He walks towards them, Alone and sheltered overhead. Slowly paced, and soggy footed, he arrives. He is unable to speak or think straight. As he slowly lowers his head something catches his eye. He peacefully stares; Stares at the beautiful flowers. The flowers he and his wife planted along their fence. He could still remember the aching pain of his sore, middle aged back, The smell of his wifes worn out, one-size-too-small gloves as he took them...
  • Food And Little Water
    1,396 words
    Wiping the sweat from my brow I called a halt to the crew. Phil and I dumped our packs and found a comfy boulder to rest on. I looked back to where the last guys were coming from back down the trail. They had stopped talking a while back and marched slowly along the dirt trail. Phil produced an energy-bar hed saved from breakfast and began to munch on it as I drained another water bottle. After the refreshing drink I laid back against the rock and stared up at the pine trees. But a moment later,...
  • Pretty Big Meaning Fat And Looks
    537 words
    ROMAN OBJECTS 1. Various Roman Portrait Heads The portrait of a bearded man is from 150-175 a. d. It is from the Antoine Period (138-192 a. d. ). The portrait is realistic to me because it is a sculpture of someone. My impressions on this are that his beard is kind of wavy. His hose has a piece missing or is just damaged real bad. He is made out of marble. His face looks like he is mad or something, real intense. It also looks like it had cuts in his forehead and part of his eye. His hair looks ...
  • English Creative Writing Web Julie And Huang
    1,556 words
    english-creative writing web Julie and Huang: Together til the End Twelve o clock was hardened by the sounds of tiny angel trumpets. They sputtered a pre-recorded song that Huang thought he knew. He didnt. The waiting room was quiet this late at night, with only the angels song and the sound of his stomach rumbling to keep him company. The love he felt for Julie was such that it hurt to think about. Not a bad kind of hurt, but enough for Huangs face to contort a bit. The fact that she was dead o...
  • Life's Little Traffic Lights
    859 words
    Life's Little Traffic Lights love it, life is so crazy. I've always said if it isn't going to bother me in three to five years, then I'm not going to worry about it now, then I come across what I like to refer to as a "traffic light" you know, those little situations and encounters that make you stop and reminisce about a time and place that you left behind so long ago, deep in the folds of your memory, and the sudden slap of reality that makes you stop and look around and think what's different...
  • Look Back At The Jump Master
    1,271 words
    The First Jump My first jump out of an airplane on December 17, 1999 was the most exciting experience of my life. I had been anticipating this day since some point when I was a little kid and saw a skydiver on TV for the first time, at which time I promised myself that I would let nothing stop me from jumping out of a plane sometime before I die. It was the first time I had been in a small airplane since I was a young child. From shortly after I was born until I was seven years old, I had flown ...

    After going from city to city in the Starship, we where looking for a place to stay at. We had left Earth because I was being taken over by the aliens that where discovered from other planets. We knew we would encounter other aliens while exploring other planets so we took proper precautions and brought the protection we would need through out the trip.

  • Radio And Grandma Dowdel
    378 words
    "Woos h"! The Grandmothers are flying off at each other. Grandma Dowdel from A Long Way from Chicago and my grandma are similar and different in so many ways by how they act what they say and look like. Grandma Dowdel acts very nasty and rude sometimes, but other times she can act very nice. Like when she got back Effie Wilcox's house back. She also is very independent. Grandma Dowdel is a hypocrite she will tell Joey to go look up in the attic and shell just sit around. She's no super model her...
  • My Father In The Eyes
    1,162 words
    Personal EssayAllyssa AshlineEnglish day 1 125-28-01 It was a Sunday evening around 6 o'clock or so, one of the many Sunday evenings where I would cruise around with my father in the car. Though this wasn't just any ordinary Sunday sightseeing excursion with dad. We stopped at a red light, and without much enthusiasm observed the pedestrians. A woman, as she walked, fixed the white lacey gossamer slip of her dress. It dragged out of her skirt, obviously making her feel self-conscious. A short, s...
  • Wives Of Norton And Simon
    2,129 words
    It was a gorgeous Thursday afternoon. The men were in the family room watching the special Thanksgiving Day football game. The Chicago Bears were playing against the Minnesota Vikings. Norton McCarthy and his brother-in-law, Simon Fletcher, were wagering as to whom had the better offense. From looking at the score, you would have to agree with Norton; the Vikings-deep in Bear's territory-were winning, 24-7, late in the fourth quarter. As the Vikings scored yet another touchdown, it all but settl...
  • Kumquat From The Tree
    1,342 words
    : It seems to me that the most appealing things in life are those which lie just beyond our reach. Whether they are there because they are appealing or appealing simply because they are there, I doubt I will ever know, but they are there and I for one feel the need to reach out for them periodically in the hopes of one day satisfying my hunger for the untouchable. Like Tantalus, standing neck high in a stream directly below a tree full of all varieties of fruit: apples, oranges, grapes, bananas,...
  • Of Stevenson's Early Inspirations Date Back
    1,288 words
    James Hoffa Eng. 113 sec. 03 T-Tr 8 am 3-22-01 Research Paper Robert Louis Stevenson was once criticized shortly after his death, by Frank Swinnerton as being out of fashion and questioned his literary greatness because of his vast changes in taste and style. Not since the assumption of the Earth to be flat has such a statement been false. Stevenson has taken our imaginations to far off lands where swashbucklers and adventurers live just as they did centuries ago. Stricken by illness for the gre...
  • Voice And The Sound Of Feet
    886 words
    All was black, there was not a person in sight. All the excitement from the party had gone, turned to a long boring walk to that place we call home. The road looked a lot more narrower. The walls in the alleys looked like they were closing in on me. Must be the liquor kicking in. with all this alcohol inside me I'm not even sure I'm going to make it home. The moon was big and bright. It looked rather big for something so far into space. Streetlights flickering like a burning out candle. The wind...
  • Back On Her Childhood Memories
    350 words
    Themes in To Kill a Mockingbird are as relevant today as they were in the 1930's. Many of the ideas expressed in the book are still just as important today. For instance, childhood memories are just as significant to the present day world as they were back then. They are something to look back on and learn from. The whole book was pretty much a childhood memory for Scout because she is looking back on her life after she became older and wiser. For example, at the way beginning of the novel she s...
