The Bag of Holding

4: Adsense

New layout = the suck.

Warning: whining and ranting ahead.

I'm going to have to register my complete and utter hatred of the new look. There seems to be a lot of "you're just not used to it yet" going around, which frankly (as far as I'm concerned) is crap. I'm a virtually certified change addict, and I hate this change. I'm the kind of person who rearranges all of my desktop...

I have returned. Again. Or something.

As promised, I've updated the shrine with the X³ US pics. Behold all of the awesome.

And then of course there's the gaming peripherals:


From left to right, we have:
- My old knock-off, off brand PC Propad. I never actually got to play any games with this, because it only has two trigger buttons, and all the games that supported gamepads...

Life, the Universe, and Everything. Or not.

January cannot come soon enough.

I've been spending a lot of time this week sleeping and just generally goofing around with my flatmate. Our current project is to play through Final Fantasy III (which I've done, but he hasn't) and then FFVII (which he's done, but I haven't). Beer, Pizza, and old school gaming - that is how it should be.

Every now and then...

Work, work

I'm sorry to disappoint all of you morbid freaks who I know were just itching to hear about me getting brutally dismembered, but I'm back. The trip was long, boring, and essentially uneventful.

The only real highlight worth mentioning was that we held the 8 Bit Theater "Welcome to Corneria" / "I like swords!" exchange for one hour and fifteen...

ROAD TRIP!!! WHOOOOO!

Well, the Spectral Samurai's car has finally and utterly died. Being naturally tired of it dying repeatedly over the past two years, he's getting rid of the car entirely. This leaves us with only one car, which is a slightly problematic situation for people who are supposed to be sharing a flat.

So the plan is I'm going to go to Virginia pick him...

I am not a photographer - but look at 'em anyways

I'm going to have to do three things here which I was not expecting to do. First, I'm going to post two entries within a few hours of each other, which for some reason makes me feel dirty. Second, I'm going to post a short journal entry. This definitely makes me feel dirty. Finally, I'm going to actually post something about, y'know, me doing game...

Observational gallimaufry

Observation One: NDAs make for boring journals
I originally planned to start this journal to record, y'know, game development and such. So last night I was thinking about why I have yet to actually post much about, y'know, me developing games. Today it finally dawned on me: I never post anything here, because all of the interesting stuff I work in...

Inane Factoid #47582

Smokey Bones has awesome chocolate peanut butter pie.

I'd talk more about how awesome it is, but at the moment I'm feeling the distinct need to crawl into a dark corner and sleep it off for about a week.


[update] I have developed a theory. I believe that pie is a form of antimatter for code - an antithought as it were. This pie seems to be utterly...

Tome of Navel Gazing +3

I've made a terrible mistake. I read the Newspaper Comics thread in the Lounge. Specifically, I got thinking about Calvin and Hobbes. Now it is worth noting that I recognized the fake end-of-series strip immediately as a hoax, not because I've seen it before but because I basically grew up glued to that strip. Heck, a few of my parents' coworkers actually...

Wallace and Grommit : Cheesy Good Fun

Just got back in a while ago from seeing Wallace and Grommit in the Curse of the Wererabbit. That movie is without doubt the most absolutely hilarious thing I've seen in a very, very long time.

Anyone with a decent (read: British) sense of humor owes it to themselves to see this movie at least once.


"We'll call him.... Hutch!"
