Here is a possible mate for Maurice...
Maybe she would even enjoy playing COD2 with him.... but would win...

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.
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:

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.
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
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.
I assume we are all in for a rematch?
Bright light city gonna set my soul
Gonna set my soul on fire
Got a whole lot of ammo that's ready to burn,
So get those sights up higher
There's a thousand evil doors waitin' out there
And they're all livin' devil may care
And I'm just the devil with bullets to spare
Viva las vegas, viva las vegas
Ok, I can no longer properly function without some HoC accessories. Especially the beer stein. Oh, and the M for Moron shirt.
So, are we going to do a combined order or is it every cat for himself ...
... as usual. Read more
