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

Virtual Sega Night – Friday October 12th

By Blackwalt - Posted on 11 October 2007

This is an Officially sponsored HoC Event. Hence, no prizes cause we suck as a clan. Friday October 12th starting at around 9:00 PM. May be some activity early but nothing major.

Ice and Grendel are up from T.O. and will be joining us - this event is for them. Select individuals have been invited to attend non-virtually at the Blackwalt homestead (NO, not you).

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

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

Heroes - Kindred

By Q-Bert - Posted on 09 October 2007

Well, the writers are getting their heads out of their asses apparently: Candice was fat.

Remember that I complained that Sylar and Peter were still alive. Well, with Sylar not being able to use his powers, and Peter with amnesia, it let's the other characters progress and prevents the second season from just being a carbon copy of the first. Also, I don't really mind the fact that Peter is becoming a second Sylar... I prefer a becoming-dark-lord to a whiney-emo-child anyday. Read more

Why I won't shop at Best Buy anymore.

By Q-Bert - Posted on 07 October 2007

So, I walk into Best Buy (next to the Lynx Stadium) to purchase an Xbox 360 drive and NHL'08.


  • Had to find a sales person to unlock the Xbox 360 Disk Drive "display". That took a good 10 minutes.

  • Looked at the NHL'08 cases that clearly say "PRE SALES". Good thing I asked the sales goon that came to unlock the Xbox 360 drives: "When does NHL'08 come out then?" To which he, of course, answers: "Oh, it is out already. It's at the front." Of COURSE! How stupid of me!

What to do, what to do?

By Blackwalt - Posted on 04 October 2007

Now I just have to figure out what to do with this...

FedEx was kind enough to drop it off at the office today. I think it originated from this.

If only I had $165.05 and a copy of EA's NHL 08 (don't expect change).

Then I would know exactly what to do with it....
