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.

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

When it rains, it pours

By Q-Bert - Posted on 12 October 2007

So, I was upgrading KC today (the server this website resides on) I was pretty much done.

My last step was to tune the dependancies and save a few configs. So I ran an automated script.

Well, the script ended up re-updating the main library that all Unix programs link to (glibc for the initiated). In fact, it downgraded my library. Now, only Apache and PHP work. That's why you can view this site right now, but I cannot login to my own machine, and no emails are being received or sent. Read more

Halo 3 and/or Rainbow Six Vegas are the games of choice. Read more

N00b in Bloodbath land

By Q-Bert - Posted on 10 October 2007

So, I joined Akufadumamai and Maurice last night on Halo3.... legendary setting....

Not enjoyable.

On most of the maps that we were on, I would spawn and turn to see the action.... and die.
After the 15th time in a row, I got the message and just got up and did something else.

I've decided to not join that level of gameplay until I am WAAAAY better, or this will ruin my taste for network gaming altogether. I am sure that Aku and Maurice will weep for my absence.

Somebody hold back Snuffy D

By Blackwalt - Posted on 10 October 2007

Teamxbox reports that Sega Rally Revo Races Onto Stores Shelves.

Coxxorz posted his thoughts on the demo earlier and talked about shrieking like a little girl.

What do they mean?

By Ice - Posted on 09 October 2007

If you were to receive a bill for

''replace right rear mismatch tire and return old" for repairs to a Mini Van, what do you think the mechanics meant.

Why am I asking?

Because National Car rental is trying to make me pay $251 for this, and I have no idea what it means. Almost a month after I return the van I get an invoice, which they have already charged to my credit card, for the above repair. So if anyone wants to guess what that means go for it. I may have an answer tomorrow when I call them to tell them I'm not paying for it. Read more
