Viva Las Vegas - Tonight at 9:30 (ish)

By Blackwalt - Posted on 05 September 2007

The Rainbow Six version of Vegas of course.

And Herd of Cats style. Except that it would be good if someone actually showed up...

Random Themery - HoC Style

By Blackwalt - Posted on 05 September 2007

Drupal themes are all over the internet. At the drupal site and at others.

Free and pay versions (you get to pay yourself).

Find your favourite and post it for Q-Bert and I.

Q-Bert will install it and I will enable them randomly until we settle on one we like.

User feedback such as Q-Bert's "...Oh Sweeet Baby Jesus! My Eyes!!" when he saw my pick solarflare should also be posted. This makes me think that it stands out and I may make it our primary theme...

Coffin has been received and shipped

By Blackwalt - Posted on 05 September 2007

It doesn't look like a coffin.It doesn't look like a coffin.So my original call to MS Xbox support was Tuesday August 28th.

I received the "coffin" for shipping my 3RLOD Xbox 360 yesterday, Tuesday September 4th. And while it seems like a week (exactly a week) it was within the 3-5 business days promised. Four in fact. Read more

Still Running Day 2 - 6

By Ice - Posted on 02 September 2007

So after breaking free of the Mad Scientists it appeared that I need to get as far away from the scene as I could. With sketchy plans I head out. Read more

Coxxorz's absence

By Blackwalt - Posted on 01 September 2007

Not that you had noticed his absence but Coxxorz's disappearance is related to technical difficulties.

Here is his note:

Subject line: Internet broked

> Service ticket opened with Bell.
> Probably not til Tuesday.
> Dialup slow.

And yet I don't feel myself growing fonder of him...

Xbox 360 models - synopsis

By Blackwalt - Posted on 01 September 2007

Xbox 360 models

To answer Q-Bert's chat question I have posted a page listing the features of the various Xbox 360 SKUs.

See it and comment/edit at the above link.

Fine you llamas, forget Friday, how about Saturday night's alright for fighting?

By Blackwalt - Posted on 01 September 2007

Since NO ONE showed for Friday night how about some gaming tonight???

What if you held a war and nobody showed up?

By Blackwalt - Posted on 31 August 2007

Arrgggh!! We forgot to go to war!!!

I was reminded as we drove my the Coliseum today and I said to Guba, "Arrgggh!! We forgot to go to war!!!"

Now, she knows me pretty well by now but, based on her stare, I'm thinking this had her a little worried.

Note about Medal of Honor Airborne

By Blackwalt - Posted on 31 August 2007

OXM only scores it 7.5. I had been expecting substantially better.

Not a strong rating. I think they are jaded by too many WWII games and killing Nazis again. The twist of parachuting in only happens at the start of a level (mostly).

Multiplayer has all allies parachuting in and all Axis defending from the ground all the time. They like this except who would ever want to play Axis?

I had been looking at picking this up if there was enough clan interest but with only 3 weeks until Halo 3, I think I'll wait. Read more

Friday night KillFest -- please??

By Blackwalt - Posted on 31 August 2007

I need to kill things on Live.

A kitchen sink replacement and the myriad ways it could go wrong and the 6 trips to Home Depot (2 caused by their staff) have put me in a mood.

I'd rather take it out on AIs than on my family.

I can hold myself back until tonight...

Looking for Imac G3 wireless adapter.

By Q-Bert - Posted on 30 August 2007

Anyone got one of them lying around?

I got a wireless card from Blackwalt, but the iMac didn't come with the adapter dammit. I wonder why that was overlooked again...


By Stormblade - Posted on 30 August 2007

That's my Live handle. I knew Stormblade was a write-off, but my backup, Stormblade99, was taken as well. So that's what I'm stuck with. I should come up with something unique like Blackwalt. At least until a Rapper takes it ...

So how do I set up that playing status thing?
