Idiotic packing Gnomes...

By Blackwalt - Posted on 19 October 2007

I just don't get what packing Gnomes are thinking. I ordered a new keyboard and this is how it was packed for shipping.
The memory stick visible in the pictures is for scale.

And some of you other cheapskates owe me money ... oh yeah ... I haven't given you a bill ...

... It's Alive!! ...

By Stormblade - Posted on 18 October 2007

Yes, I have been out of action the last couple of weeks as my personal and professional lives have been simultaneously imploding. I am slowly regaining the urge to kill things again. Unfortunately, I have now been away from Halo 3 long enough that the modicum of competitiveness I once had is gone. I am sure I will just be cannon fodder (see Q-Bert).

Anyway, I will be back online tonight and ready to die ... er, kill.

Life imitates Xbox 360 – Rainbow Six Vegas

By Blackwalt - Posted on 18 October 2007

**Update**: Sensationalism is still alive and well. Not surprising when you consider where I work. Security reports: stolen car, plain clothes cops, the police report "no gun".

In all seriousness.

SWAT has just pursued and taken down an armed gunman in our lobby and parking lot.

Complete with running screaming bystanders, a stolen car and a chase.

True to my HoC camping style. I stayed(hid) in my office until it was over...

This was way better than last year's car bomb

Blackwalt 4, Cozzorz 3

By Blackwalt - Posted on 18 October 2007


Red vs. Blue, the Herd of Cats way – by accident.

Last night with a two man Halo 3 party of Coxxorz and myself we got separated by the automatic matchmaking. We didn't realize it immediately but entered into the 8 vs 8 Team Slayer on opposite teams. Coxxorz Blue, Blackwalt Red. Read more

The age old debate begins again...

Xbox video games vs Education fund. With $165.0486850176726614176093708922016 to spend, what to do becomes a great debate.

"Daddy, Daddy, I need to be edumacated!"

"No, no, no, lots of time for that. Give me my money, I need to play Orange Box and PGR4."

National Car Rental - Redux

By Ice - Posted on 16 October 2007

OK National Car rental has annoyed me again.

What did they do this time? Well this time the agreed to reverse the credit card payment they had made on the bogus tire changing charge.
Worse yet the lady on other end of the phone was polite and seemed pleasant, I didn't even have to raise my voice.

So why does this piss me off? Well how else can I be an cutting edge blog if I don't have an antagonist. First I had the mad Monkey Breeding scientist, then I thought I had National Car. Read more

Attention eBay shoppers!

By Coxxorz - Posted on 15 October 2007

I've been a member of Great Canadian Rebates for a little while now, but just recently discovered that you can save on eBay auctions as well. In addition to special coupons and offers (e.g. free shipping) at lots of online retailers, you can also earn rebates on your purchase. The eBay offer is for 30% cash back on their revenue from the auction (i.e. listing fees, not the auction price), which can add up if you're foolish enough to buy big-ticket electronics on there.

That chintzy bastard screwed me over!

By Blackwalt - Posted on 15 October 2007

Yes we all knew that Q-Bert/Jehreg was a cheap bastard before but now we have fully documented proof.

We all know about my Xbox 360 win and the negotiations/bidding war/extortion involved in setting the firm price of $165.05. Read more

Friday's Virtual Sega Night a success.

By Blackwalt - Posted on 13 October 2007

Q-Bert (Jehreg) still sucks.

Seven members online in varying Halo 3 multiplayer types is counts as a success. Team games were very popular while free for all's were erratic to say the least.

Ice and Grendel improved as they figured out which way to hold the controller and to stop standing still for lengthy periods of time. Ice loaded up forge later to try to improve his flying but... well... frankly, it hasn't helped. Read more
