NRGsoft is home of No Regrets Gaming Software. Using Nicholas' “Goodlookinguy” initials N, R, and G, as the base. The site became the home of his newly beginning
company team, NRGsoft.
At the moment, Nicholas “Goodlookinguy” and Michael “MadMichaelOfMetal” are the only two writing articles / blogging.
What I do: I create software, including games. I self-taught myself programming when I was young and when resources were scarce in comparison to what there is nowadays. I actually had to obtain books (libraries). I’ve been programming for many years (around 14~15). I also write about technical-level problems in software and philosophical views. This, of course, is not the extent of my knowledge nor my limitations. I also engineer kludges from junk, create electronics, write calculator games, study electrical engineering, study mechanical engineering, repair computers, build computers, make large zen gardens, play games, play with my cat, expose tic-tac-toe 95% win tactics (not a joke), play sudoku, repair PCBs (bad solder, reflowing), draw (anime-styled, abstract, cartoonish, Fibonacci patterned, and program fractals), use low-key keyboards, type at over 200+ WPM (without errors) in short bursts (<5 minutes), can speak at over 300+ WPM (without errors) and have blown more than 10 people's minds away (I can't believe they stood there and watched me read a technical paper at a rate that I couldn't even comprehend the text I was reading), bike (BMX and mountain bike), and exercise.
Censorship stance: I strongly disagree with all forms of censorship, even censorship you might think is acceptable. To be free of censorship is to open up expression and communication between people. This also means I stand strongly against SJW (social justice warriors), PC (politically correct) people, China’s government, North Korea’s government, Nazis, etc. Yes, all of these are to be viewed as the same, true evil against the human race.
Women & Video Games: Fascism! At what point did using women’s sexuality to sell games to suckers become misogynistic? I stand with no groups like gamergate, but I also cannot ignore how I grew up. Video games were not and have never been a male-only thing. My mother, sister, and female friends all played games when I was growing up. To me, even now, I do not understand this “treatment” of women in the games industry because many games from the early days were developed by women software engineers. As far as I can tell, a minority of prunes have spoken loudly enough to make some women feel unwelcomed, even though a majority don’t care. Then the SJWs popped in and made those “some” women into the cornerstone for their side of the argument. This is behavior that encourages a subculture of outrage and overreaction to 1-sided views and lacking evidence. What happens now is that any small incident will be blown up to be much bigger than it is. This is the kind of crap I find both disgusting and irritating as a rationalist. If you are called or associate yourself under the title “SJW,” please do yourself a favor and read both sides of the argument before you overreact and outrage. Also make sure to take what I’ve said and think it through. Make sure it’s not just this incident being made out to be much bigger than it is. Life is short, getting outraged over every little thing that isn’t in your scope of acceptable anything, is a surefire way to give yourself a heart attack.
Transgender Stance: Let me start off by asking, what is transgender? Disassociation of your actual gender in lieu of the stereotyped version of the gender you perceive? Yes, I do believe so. I won’t tell anyone who believes their gender is wrong to listen to me, but I would pay attention. There have been various periods of time where gender was a neutral entity. In the 80s, gender was drastically split up into 2 groups, male-blue, female-pink. That was followed up with male, jeans, shirts, etc. Females, skirts, dresses, heels, jewelry, etc. Thanks to this crap in the 80s, it split off the otherwise 70s, gender neutrality that existed. Yes, male and female adolescents would wear dresses. From what I’ve seen, this has caused massively stereotyped views on both genders. After noticing this, I noticed that a number of people associating themselves as transgender, were some of the most hypocritical individuals I’ve ever seen. They spouted a need for equality while stereotyping females or males as being a certain way. This means that they were not transgender, they just happen to do more or associate more with what they perceive as the definition of the other gender. Why is it so wrong for males or females to be just who they want to be, i.e. individuals? Gender should not drive that. Begin a movement for individualism today, not a movement for equality towards your own hypocrisy. The first step is to critically analyse yourself, if you associate yourself as transgender, and ask if what I said actually does make sense and apply to you.
SJWs/PC Stance: Bananas and tacos go great together, especially when they’re metaphors for penises and vaginas. That is how I describe the SJWs and PC people. Rock hard groups who are constantly ready to blow their load whenever they’re displeased. Then the unsuspecting, under-educated, and naive groups hear these people and let them blow their load inside them and then grow into magical bananas themselves and keep passing their STDs around infecting the general public. At this point in time, I suspect these people will quiet down in the next 5-years due to both aging and their inability to keep up their antics while attempting to maintain a family they will likely have or make.
Vaccine Stance: I shouldn’t have to write this, but thanks to extremely undereducated morons, I’ve been forced to have to take a stance on a truly, non-issue. However, rather than take a stance, I’m going to write the actual facts about it because I’m just so fed up with the cult of ignorance. Vaccines are not the cause of autism. Vaccines are dead or weakened versions of a virus. Getting them can cause you problems if you were naturally weak against the virus. If you got the full version of the virus are were not vaccinated, you would probably die. Vaccines can cause some internal damage if you were particularly weak against the virus. However, autism, along with ADD, OCD, tourettes, anxiety, and depression, is a frontal-lobe chemical imbalance. Going by the hypothesis by the uneducated moms and morons of society, it would also reason that all of the front-lobe issues I described should also be increasing in the general population (yes, this is how science works, dipshits). However, this has been proven statistically false. What they’ve proven is that we as a society have gotten a lot better at categorizing people’s mental health conditions and are more willing to speak out about them now. A stigma, that still exists today about mental health, has been in steady decline which caused a great rise in the numbers, even though nothing really changed. So next time you decide to open your mouth spewing anti-vaccine views, go get a fucking science book and crack open your skull with it and do society a favor and die off. You are a cancer hurting society’s ability to progress you prick.
Political stance: I stand firmly against both large US political parties, the green party, the libertarian party, and tea party. The only parties I remotely stand with in any sense is the communist party (read up what true communism is if you’re ignorant, China and Russia are not communist) and the pirate party. I also find the voting system to be insanely broken to the point that I’m uninterested in bothering to vote because it’s a sham.
Internet stance: The internet should never be censored. The fact that it has already been censored in several ways pisses me off. The internet is the strongest way to progress to the future. Our ability to learn and understand about people from other countries has opened up our understanding of the world. We still have a long way to go, but censorship will do nothing but harm our future.
NEET stance: I’m firmly against people who are capable of working (no physical or mental limitations) and instead op-out to do nothing and waste space. Let me clarify that if a NEET is at the very least creating things, videos, games, software, music, that they are not included as they are producing entertainment or productivity help.
Religious stance: I am a true pantheist, not the “tree hugger” or Hollywood view after that movie came out. I believe in the universe as a whole being equated to the definition of god. That every piece of the universe creates the whole defined as god. This is to say, I am like an atheist, but with a more intellectual stance. Where an atheist is inherently nihilist, I strive against the “meaningless” view, while also understanding it. I discovered when I was older that I held extraordinarily close views with Friedrich Nietzsche by coincidence. I, along with Nietzsche, also hold strong opposition to religions who teach ignorance and oppose critical thinking. I also oppose ascetic practices which are deeply ingrained with nihilist actions and behaviors.
How I feel: I’m a deeply depressed person who has been continuously depressed since I was quite young. I understood the world and many more things than I was supposed to at a young age. Unlike most kids at that age, I obsessed to understand literally everything from every viewpoint possible. This created my adult stance of thinking deduction using multiple viewpoints, but also led to me being cynical and perpetually negative about human behavior and predicted actions.
Ancestry: I come from a German (and some European) background and resemble many of my German ancestors. My ancestors moved to America before Nazi Germany and not only that, but were in the OSI (now CIA) and fought against Nazi Germany. My family also has DNA connections, and historical records, that connect it directly with a wealthy (royal-ish) family who we have no contact or interactions with (I wants monies). My great grandmother was cast out of the family for not marrying a person from another wealthy family (go figure).
Where I’m going from here: Nowhere yet. I will keep doing what I do until I can’t do it anymore. Secrets (hidden section): I stuck this in here because I assume most people will not read any or most of what I wrote. I did this on purpose. I was only looking for certain people to read to the end. First off, thank you for actually reading. I find it intriguing that you’d bother to read about someone you don’t know personally. This shows a strong sign of social curiosity and interest in other humans meaning you likely share a characteristic with me, neat huh? As for secrets, I am involved with, but shouldn’t be directly associated with, a collective known as Anonymous. Anyone speaking on behalf of the collective does not understand the point of the collective. The point is anonymity, both who you are and what you do. Anyone taking credit on behalf of the collective undermines the purpose. Much like a secret society, things are intended to be behind the scenes to help improve the world. There is no leader and everyone who is involved with the collective has independent will. I was not involved with any DDoS nor anything against companies like Sony (I like Sony). I was against these actions as they are primitive and childish at best. Aside from that, I am also an ex-software cracker (and unpacker) (before age 18, so I’m safe from the law) and malware reverse engineer (aka security expert). I have extensive experience in cryptology and have developed live encryption techniques that have no patterns that could be used for developing a reversing algorithm. I am the developer of ChatFight a P2P encrypted chat system made for the sole purpose of flipping off all government agencies who don’t want us to have encryption (because they are hypocritical). See, aren’t you glad you read all of that? Now you’ve also learned that aside from censorship, I also strongly disagree with anti-encryption nonsense and strive to make the world better.
