Heroes: Orientation / Jump, Push, Fall

By Q-Bert - Posted on 22 September 2009

I am back on the saddle, baby! This 2 hour special should have been called "Redemption", as Tim Krigg obviously felt the heat and did some major plot point tweaks for the coming season. Read more

Installing Snow Leopard, an adventure

Big Kitty or Killer Cat ?Big Kitty or Killer Cat ?
Snow Leopard is advertised as the simplest install of any OS in the past. My laptop begs to differ.

Snow Leopard

By Q-Bert - Posted on 27 August 2009

Well, I ordered my family pack yesterday. That will take care of my two Intel boxes in the house, but what about my dual G5?

I am rather pissed at Apple for dropping all of PowerPC chips, but I guess that's the price Apple is willing to pay to double their hardware sales this year :-/

So, either I stay with Leopard on my main workstation, or I somehow convince Pebbles that I need a new workstation...

EVE-Online week #2: It's been about a week now.

By Q-Bert - Posted on 21 June 2009

I'm still married, and my girls recognize me still; so EVE's impact hasn't been that bad so far. Sunday morning, and the servers are in maintenance, so I have nothing else to do on Father's Day morning than write a blog entry :-(

I've lost 2 ships in PvE combat, but I have about 4 more in the hangars. My main problem right now is that I don't have enough money to purchase insurance for my biggest ship. That stunts my combat ability somewhat.

So, I have been focussing on the Market. Read more

EVE-Online: How I am back on the crack-cocaine...

By Q-Bert - Posted on 13 June 2009

I have been looking for a game to play during "idle time". I don't have much of it, and the only time that you girls are available to play has been after 9PM. That's not optimal for me.

The Hunt For An Addiction
Well, I am not looking for an addiction per-se, but follow me on this. The only games that I have kept playing for any length of time have been MMPORGs (and Assassin's Creed, but I blame Stormblade for that). The biggest problem that I had with MMPORGs have been the cost. I have played WoW and EVE-Online. Both ask for about $15US per month. Not a huge sum for most of the readers of this site, but still hard to justify to myself. Considering that I have about 1 to 2 hours per week of available time for this, that makes the cost about $2 per hour of play (what's *your* cost-per-hour ?).

So much for DK #2 ...

So, when I saw this headline on Google News:

Bat Was Clinging to Shuttle During Liftoff

my first thought was

Yeah, that's cuz The Penguin was in the cockpit...

Was I the only one ?

Heroes: I Really Wish I Could Care

By Q-Bert - Posted on 12 February 2009

... or whatever they called the episode this week.

As you noticed, I am not doing episodes reviews of Heroes this season; frankly I can't get into a "caring" mood. I can only bitch about the writing when I think they could have done better.

I this point, I think*I* could have done better.

There is no suspense anymore; there is no mystery this season. They have just taken the easy road and have done 2 episodes of "Us vs Them".

That's crap.

If they don't start some kind of plot point next episode, I will just fugetaboutit.

Review: eastern standard tribe by Cory Doctorow

By Q-Bert - Posted on 15 April 2008

Yes, the title is lower-case.

This is my first novel-length story from Cory, a good 'ol canuck. The story follows Art Berry, an EST-born dude living in the GMT timezone. The major premise of the story is that Art feels loyalty to his EST timezone and works as an agent-provocateur by working for an England firm and introducing complexity into projects given to him in order to sabotage them. This way, he gets the GMT-based company in hot water, and makes EST-based companies look better in comparison. Read more
