School evacuation, Latin jokes, and a blog cleanup

Half the lights flicker and then go out. The little flood lights next to the emergency exit lights flash on and then off. Then they come on again and the fire alarm blares.

This happened today at my school, right after Latin, right before Science. Unfortunately, I was one of the few people who didn’t get a chance to grab a jacket. I stood outside, freezing to death, making jokes about the hallways supposedly being quiet. We saw smoke coming from the windows of the YMCA daycare that’s in the same building as our school. I soon found myself bundled in a yellow plastic blanket with “R”.

An unbelievable amount of time later, a city bus pulled up to the other side of the parking lot. We all trudged through the snow to the bus. Can you imagine over one hundred people on a city bus? It was very noisy.

After a long bus ride with too many people in it and lots of bad singing, we arrived at a skating rink warming house. I made up some latin stories there. Here’s one:

Metellae amicus Caecilii canem laudat. Caecilius est iratus. Caecilius Metellae amicum interfecit. Metella Grumionem pulsat. Grumio circumspectat. Grumio clamat, “que f███?” Clemens est obesus. Cerberus latrat.

That roughly translates to:

Metella’s friend praises Caecilius’s dog. Caecilius is angry. Caecilius kills Metella’s friend. Metella punches Grumio. Grumio looks around. Grumio shouts, “WTF?” Clemens is obese. Cerberus (the dog) barks.

Ok, now that I’m done telling you a story, it’s time to talk about what I did to my blog:

  • I backed up my database
  • I deactivated some plugins that I never use
  • I cleaned up my database, deleting the tables that were no longer in use
  • I deleted the pages that have no purpose
  • I fixed a problem with wordpress.com thinking my blog was still at llamaslayers.freehostia.com

Now for some random facts about this blog:

  • The two days with the most activity on my blog for the last two months both ended in six, January 26th and February 6th.
  • There are a total of 330 posts and pages ever created on this blog.
  • The old backup system has been taken out and a new one has been put in. The new one not only backs up my database every week and emails it to me, but also uses the optimize function every twelve hours.
  • 353 comments have been made on this blog, 102 of which were spam.
  • This blog shares a user database with the forums.
  • There are a total of 30 users registered on this blog.

The magic numbers

Let’s say that you wanted to have lots of money by fletching and alchemy, but you didn’t want to waste any time by not having a full inventory for every action.

You would need (for this method)

  • 55 magic (High alchemy)
  • 60 woodcutting (Yew trees)
  • 44 runecrafting (Nature runes)
  • 70 fletching (Yew longbows)
  • 10 crafting (Bowstrings)
  • The small and medium pouches
  • 30 mining (Pure essence)
  • Access to the fairy rings (Nature runes)
  • Nature tiara (Nature runes)
  • Lots of patience
  • Fire/Lava staff/battlestaff/mystic staff (High alchemy)

Basically, what you need to do is think about it:  The most logs you can make into unstrung bows at one time is 27, the most nature runes you can craft at once is 35 (with this method), the most logs/flax/bowstring you can get in your inventory is 28.  The most bows you can put bowstring on at once is 14.

The factors of these numbers are:
14 {2|7}
27 {3|3|3}
28 {2|2|7}
35 {5|7}

The most the numbers appear in any one factor list are:
2-2 times
3-3 times
5-1 time
7-1 time

If we multiply all of the numbers we just got, we get the least common multiple, 3780.  That gives us the ability to get multiples of 3780 without having any spaces unused in the inventory.

3780 items is:
108 runecrafting inventories
135 logs/flax/bowstring inventories
140 unstrung bow making inventories
280 bow stringing inventories

If we take the number of completed yew longbows we will get and multiply that by the high alchemy value of a yew longbow, (768 coins,) we get 2,903,040 coins.  That’s almost 3 million!

In other news, I have made a spreadsheet with the level exp values up to 200.  The highest one possible is 126, the highest one Jagex will let us to is 99.  View the spreadsheet here.

The complete history of firecat

I am fire cat. It is random but I got bored and wanted make my history (MUST HAVE HISTORY!!)

Fire cat emerged long ago when a human and cat where in a burning building.

Everyone tried to save them, people of all kinds. No one could save them so they slowly burned until they where dead.

But their spirits floated on the way to giant exploded cotten ball in the sky (clouds). But while going up they met each other and combined their spirits, and instead of floating they came back to earth.

Only a spirit they still where burnt from the flames of the  building. They became mad of this pain.

They used their combined powers of the spirits to transform into a creature -That could be seen with the eye of a mortal/human.

In the shape of a cat, the talk of a human and cat, fire in flames coating a fur like body the fire cat could transform into the following:

Cat body -Flame fur

Cat body -Grey fur (no flames)

human body -Cat ears & tail (grey)

When in the human type form she could bring down her ears to be hidden under her brown hair adn the tail could be hidden in her shorts/pants

But as a spirit, not a true human she was indastructable.

You cut her head off, she simply put it back on.

If you angered her she transformed into the FireCat form.

So she lived her life as the firecat.

People where amazed… And she lives on forever
