Commodore 64 Turns 25

By Ice - Posted on 08 December 2007

I was just reading on CNN that the C64 is celebrating its 25th birthday this year. This was the second computer I ever owned, a huge increase from the Vic20 that I had.

The C64 started me playing video games, I remember taping an entire game of Video golf I played with a friend at University, and playing the 1986 Olympics against what seemed like most of the Dorm floor.

I enjoyed my C64. And I'd like to thank Frank W, who gave me my first Vic20 and C64. He worked for Commodore at the time. I found out that he died earlier this week. He will be missed. Read more

Vegas

By Ice - Posted on 07 December 2007

Having been to Vegas I will now need to get a game of R6V online. To see how things look in comparison. Vegas had lots of good places to hide. And to spend money of course. But the best sniping was at Hoover Dam.

A fun quiz anyone?

Just came across this neat quiz for those who are geared towards computers.

Alive and well in Boulder, Colorado

By Stormblade - Posted on 05 December 2007

So, I am here for my first day of work. I got in late Monday and used yesterday to do things like get a bank account and a SIM card for my Treo. Neither of these things were easy. I had nice people helping me, but the computer systems in both places had real issues with a Canadian wanting their services. So the nice people had to lie to their computer systems to get me what I wanted. At least they did it. Apparently there is a new town in Colorado called Kars. Can't imagine why. Read more

Heroes ... season finale ... Powerless?

By Noir - Posted on 04 December 2007

Well this is just going to be a prediction (and by predictions I mean my wishlist) of what I hope will happen in this season finale episode.

1) I hope Sylvar dies ... again.
2) I hope CopyCat either does one of two things. First gets killed, or second, goes drunken master on those thugs asses.
3) Going back to point 1) I hope Sylar kills Maya before he himself dies.
4) Molly Walker gets someone to build her Cerebro.
5) Elle and Claire mudwrestling of course.
6) Oh oh oh, almost forgot. West must also die, a horrible horrible death (flies into a jet engine perhaps?) Read more

Mass Effect has been weighing on me

By Blackwalt - Posted on 04 December 2007

I know Mass Effect is an RPG and that I don't normally play RPGs.

But this one is weighing on me. It's reviewing well (very). Its SciFi based story is extremely well written and everywhere I turn its being written of or spoke of. Read more

So. It's a good thing I kicked my MUA addiction

By Blackwalt - Posted on 03 December 2007

Because one of you fracking bastards stole my copy!!!

I know this because Rolly likes to walk around with my copy saying Spiderman over and over again.

Now Occam's razor is paraphrased as All other things being equal, the simplest solution is the best which to me would mean that Rolly just put it down somewhere and I haven't found it yet. Read more

R6V

By Ice - Posted on 03 December 2007

Well it's time to once again dwell in the land of make believe between reality and XBOX360. Where should I venture.

I decided to try out one of the more highly rated games on this site and try Rainbox 6 - Vegas, and where better to get the lines between reality and a video game mixed up. Vegas itself.

So I'm on my way to Vegas, or at least I'm supposed to be. I just checked in and my flight was delayed by an hour because of, well I presume because of Ice or snow.

Ironically I seem to be my own worst enemy. Read more

Walked into the site today...

And got blasted by all the banner adds.

All in favor of revoking admin rights to whomever resposible?

I thought I read not long ago that hackers now have a way to take control of your system just by having their banner add show up in your browser. You don't even need to click on the add.

Chatting with Revek.
