Spotted this little puppy at Rogers on my way home tonight. In case you don't reconize it, it's an Xbox 360 Messenger kit. Basically a keyboard that clips onto your controller to allow easy texting. It's so new, it doesn't even have a price sticker yet ($34.99, btw). Looks pretty solid, and despite no lack of keyboards at my place, will definitely be added to my wish list. Seems to be getting favourable reviews, too. Too bad for Blackwalt it doesn't come in black.
Now available is The Herd of Cats Lexicon of Death where you can translate exactly what your Herd mates are trying to say to you.
No longer will we be dying due to miscommunication (Okay, accidental miscommunication), we well be working as a smoothly working Herd as we take out virtual terrorists by the boatload.
Got the call at home from Blockbuster this evening. Ran out the door as fast as I could. Drove to the mall like a maniac. Hit 3 pedestrians and a baby carriage on the way. Arrived there to find the store full of people laughing and pointing at me. I looked down and realized I was dressed only in my underwear. Then I suddenly woke up from my nap in a cold sweat...
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
Here is a possible mate for Maurice...
Maybe she would even enjoy playing COD2 with him.... but would win...

- Blackwalt says: tygerteam broke!!
Blackwalt says: Tell Q-Bert to fix
MoriceRevek says: Credit card number please
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.
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.
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
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...
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
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.
