Who is this guy?

By Half-pint - Posted on 22 August 2007

My regular humans seem to have disappeared.

Some big guy who smells funny has taken their place. I would be more worried but he seems to feed me when I ask and let me out when I want.

But I don't trust him. I have set Patches to keep a close eye on him – she's the paranoid one anyway.

In the realm of the Guba

By Stormblade - Posted on 22 August 2007

Half-Pint remembered me.

This can be perceived as a good or bad thing, depending on the moment.

The initial meowing and purring was nice, followed quickly by the 'FEED ME NOW!' yowl, and then the 'LET ME OUT NOW!' yowl. Similar yowls, but different meaning, which is made apparent using cat sign language. That being either perched over the bowl and yowling or slammed up against the back door yowling. Read more

Test subject Alpha

I don't see why Simon choose me as a test subject. Frankly, Patrick is suppose to be the guinea pig.

The impending Cat Sit

Lion Tamer

Ok, so I got an email from Blackwalt.

It contained instructions.

It contained contact information,

It even contained information that he had activated the wireless connection so I could use my computer. This is an improvement over having to use Guba's computer. I'm afraid of Guba.

So now I am dumbfounded. The challenge has been removed. I don't have to guess about what I should and shouldn't be doing. Of course, there is still the multi-function remote to deal with. That thing is just creepy. Read more

Mighty Machines live!!

By Blackwalt - Posted on 20 August 2007

Rolly loves machines - dump trucks, buses, trains, any of them.

And he is addicted to Might Machines.

We indulged him this morning after an Ikea and Chapters run by taking a picnic lunch out to a construction site.

The recreation complex at the end of the street is repaving their parking lot. Periodically over the past few months we have taking Rolly over to check on their progress.

Today was our first chance to see the construction site in full operation. They are just prepping for final paving tomorrow. Read more

Preparing for the Cat Sit

Tomorrow will be Day 1 of my current guardianship of the HoC mascot and his mentally challenged partner. Of course, I have been given the usual level of detailed instructions from their master, Blackwalt, but that is nothing new. I also don't have a key, which should prove problematic, but I am certain it will all work out in the end ...

or not.

Second day of my vacation - Bed tales.

By Blackwalt - Posted on 19 August 2007

Other than my Xbox 360 problems discussed elsewhere. Had a busy day.

Finished building Rolly's new bed (started yesterday) and he had his first nap in it which lasted until he banged his head against the edge.

And need a trip to Ikea. It was as-is but as is listed packaging as the problem. Not a split down the edge of the headboard.

Not major to repair but hopefully we can get the part replaced or more money off. Either is good. Read more

Adding inline images.

By Q-Bert - Posted on 18 August 2007

OK, when you invoke Image Assist, and you select an image, make sure you keep "Not a URL" and then select a size to display. It will select thumbnail by default, which might not be what you wish.

All this together will permit you to display an inline image in your post/blog.

Having Blackwalt as a boss...

By Q-Bert - Posted on 18 August 2007

... must suck.

"Hurry!"
"Why doesn't this work?!?!"
"Gawddam, how hard could it possibly be?"
"My clients are calling!"
"I pay you too much!"
"What are you waiting for?"
"I will be in the bathroom if you need me..."
waaaaahmbulance, I swear ....

Paranoia

By Q-Bert - Posted on 17 August 2007

You know, because of Eric, I now feel like I always have a small red dot at the back of my head ...

Site is off to a start

By Blackwalt - Posted on 16 August 2007

Not saying good or bad.

Half-Pint is indifferent so that's good - no change there.

Not the only one posting and editting which is also good.

Cozzorz skipped gaming last night with the "I had to work late" excuse. Wuss.

And of course, Snuffy's first post had to be about porn. Somethings are consistent. At least he pulled himself away from Viva Piñata long enough to post something.

Ginger Lynn - Porn Star or Investment?

... work in progress. Battlefield 2 more pressing at the moment.

COXXORZ RANDOM XBONE DEAL OF THE DAY #2

If you are interested in the newly released Middle-Earth: Shadow of War but don't want to jump in at $79.99 You can see where it all started with Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor (Standard Disc Version) for $11.99 at the Microsoft Store.
Now you too can follow the yellow brick road to platform 9¾ while trying to roll a critical hit.

Are you going to need a tinfoil hat? We can always borrow a design from Stormblade.
