A typical IM conversation, Take 2

By Blackwalt - Posted on 10 September 2007

Stormblade:Nah, everyone would just pick 'all of the above'
Blackwalt:Ceielings was my fav
Stormblade:I was partial to 'bigger isn't better'
Blackwalt:have to go walkies. back sometime Read more

If you're thinking of subscribing to Verizon's new cable tv or high-speed internet service, you might want to read this first.

There is the small matter of installation. When Verizon runs fiber to your house, the company needs to install a box on an inside wall. It was in drilling through a wall to connect that box to a fiber conduit that our installer hit an electrical wire. That knocked the power out and left our electrical box - and the front of the house - smoking. Read more

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

By Blackwalt - Posted on 10 September 2007


SpeilbergFilms has released the name of the newest Indiana Jones film.

Didn't they do a Crystal Skull in Stargate SG-1? More than once? And in Relic Hunter? There's just no originality anymore...

Of course I stole this from IMDB.

Likes long walk on the beach...

Here is a possible mate for Maurice...

Maybe she would even enjoy playing COD2 with him.... but would win...

Sadly, a typical IM conversation...

By Blackwalt - Posted on 09 September 2007

MSN Warning: Never give out your password or credit card number in an instant message conversation.

    Blackwalt says: tygerteam broke!!

    Blackwalt says: Tell Q-Bert to fix

    MoriceRevek says: Credit card number please

We're back.

By Blackwalt - Posted on 09 September 2007

Sorry about the short site outage. We suspect Q-Bert was angry about his new profile photo.

Steps are being taken (Q-Bert is out behind the woodshed being whipped as we speak).

It shouldn't happen again.

HoC Accessories Order Placed

By Stormblade - Posted on 09 September 2007

My credit card hates all of you.

The order is coming from the US, so there will probably be customs charges. I will work out the shipping and customs charges as a percentage of everybody's individual order.

We'll arrange pickup from Blackwalt's house once the order arrives.

Maybe we should arrange it as a gaming night, since we'll want to kill things once we get the bill.

Confirmed: No Crackdown 2 because Microsoft Sucks

By Coxxorz - Posted on 08 September 2007

The hotly anticipated sequel to our favourite Xbox 360 game of the year WILL NOT HAPPEN, according to game developer Real Time Worlds.

"Microsoft were a little late in stepping up to the plate to ask for Crackdown 2, and by then we had already started working on bigger, better things".

This, of course, does not preclude the possibility of the publishing behemoth finding another developer to carry the franchise forward. Because switching developers works so well (remember Rainbow Six Lockdown, Unreal II?) Read more

Angelina Jolie Crotch Shot

By Coxxorz - Posted on 08 September 2007

That should get Snuffy's attention.

Since we've blown away our family rating (see Q-Bert's avatar), I thought the timing right to post a revealing photo of Angelina Jolie, spread-eagled in front of the camera.

The bad news:
1) It's a virtual Angelina
2) She's fully clothed
3) It's Blackwalt in drag...

Where is Snuffy D?

By Blackwalt - Posted on 08 September 2007

It's true, we wouldn't make him an admin but that's because we aren't brain dead yet.

You don't give keys of an online kingdom to a luddite. It's just wrong.

However, he was the driving force to getting the website started and one of the trio of founding members.

He also coined the clan name and got us started as Herd of Cats.

All this to be proud of and he has yet to make an appearance other than this small snippet.

Typical Snuffy, tease us and leave us hanging. Read more

HoC Accessories Order - Again (sigh)

By Stormblade - Posted on 08 September 2007

Ok, I have put off the order because, as I was compiling the list of goodies, I realized that Revek hadn't bothered to provide a size for the 'Snipered' shirt he wanted. There would be humour value in ordering an XS for him, but since I am paying, and collecting might be difficult, I decided against this. Barely.

SO, that means I will be placing the order tomorrow (Sunday) morning in order to give him time to decide on a size. After that, he'll have to order it on his own.

If any of the rest of you want something in the combined order, let me know.

Operation Help Q-Bert Get an Xbox 360

By Coxxorz - Posted on 07 September 2007

Okay, so let's put our normally divergent heads together, and come up with a way to get our beloved webmaster a next (current?) generation console, since buying one clearly isn't an option.

I'm thinking contests. Here's my contribution to the list:

ShackNews has an update on Left 4 Dead

By Blackwalt - Posted on 07 September 2007

Left 4 Dead is a upcoming four person cooperative game from Valve on PC and Xbox 360.

The premise has four survivors trying to escape from a ravening horde of zombies. ZOMBIES!!! Can't wait.

Check out the ShackNews Hands on preview.

R6V and me

By Stormblade - Posted on 07 September 2007

I have a problem. In the quick reaction world of R6V, I can't hit the broad side of a bus.

I can sneak pretty well, I can cover pretty well (as long as it's not Blackwalt the Uncoverable). I can pinpoint my enemies pretty well. I cling to the wall, peak around the corner, line them up and ...

... miss. Consistently.

Pointing right at a guy, emptying my clip. Only to find I have missed, I need to reload, and then I'm dead.

This is not like Q-Bert's problem (one of many). I don't point at the floor. Nor do I have Revek's problem of getting mauled by rogue doors. Read more

HoC Accessories Order

By Stormblade - Posted on 07 September 2007

Melikes the new stein!Melikes the new stein!Ok, I am planning to place the order this evening so let me know who's in. We'll arrange a pickup night at Blackwalt's place once it comes in. I have Blackwalt's and Revek's orders, so anyone else just add your requirements to a comment on this message.

Orders close at 8PM tonight.


Both Amazon and Walmart have The Division 2 pre-order available for $59 CDN - $20 off the regular price.


Please stop talking.


Some lines may have been crossed.
