Everything Else / Power Outages
« on: September 30, 2006, 09:52:33 pm »
The power went out in my neighborhood for about an hour or 2. My computer has a UPS, but out modem needs power, so no power = no internet :(. Apparently a tree fell on a power line. The power goes out so much where I live its almost funny. At least 2-3 times a year the power will go out without fail. Whether its rolling blackouts, a tranformer thing exploded, lightning strike (twice), or trees falling on power lines, the power goes out a lot. Last time it went out, it was midnight. And I was on the computer. The only lights in the entire house were the lights from my parent's computers because they were the only ones with a UPS at the time, and I had to scout the house for a flashlight using the dim light of my cell phone. I was almost expecting there to be zombies. I eventually got bored and went to sleep as I couldn't play games without power.

Anyone else have any stories of power outages?

Everything Else / The tour of california!
« on: February 21, 2006, 08:34:27 pm »
Sup, I'm wondering if anyone else is watching the Tour of California?
It's a big huge bike race that is starting for the first time this year, and is very similar to the tour de france.
Why I'm mentioning it is, that on the race on monday, the race ended literally 3 blocks away from my house, in Santa Rosa!
Also, the current leader in the race is from Santa Rosa, which I think is very cool.
I was about 30 feet from the finish line when the race ended, and from where I was watching earlyer, I could see my house!
I guess I'm just excited that this is the biggest thing to happen in my city in a while, and the fact that my house was one of the closest to the finish lines.

PC Games / Starwars Galaxies = pwned
« on: January 03, 2006, 10:24:56 pm »
I was watching the new commercial for SWG... and they said "join the thousands of players"

SWG has thousands of players while World of Warcraft has recently announced that they have 5 million players!

I find it hilarious to watch SOE scramble to get people to play SWG... And from most sources, the new revamp makes the game even worse! eheheheh!

Console Games / looking back on Xbox 360 speculation
« on: December 27, 2005, 12:34:01 am »
I was bored and searched Gaming steve's site for xbox 360 stuff and came across this:
http://www.gamingsteve.com/archives/2005/04/the_first_real_1.php
Read all the comments there... it's hilarious how people are completely throwing off that it's a fake and it's a bad fake at that when it is an actual picture of the real thing!
Hilarity.
Anyone else have other old speculation stuff that is funny?

Everything Else / Powers of Ten!!!
« on: December 16, 2005, 11:25:58 pm »
So I was rewatching the Spore video again, and wanted to see this video (which, since we are all sporophiles, everyone has seen before)
But for those who haven't been enlightened yet, here is the Powers of Ten!

It's like a mini version of the total perspective vortex...

Art / Any artists in here?
« on: December 13, 2005, 10:26:13 pm »
Are there any artists (of any medium) here?
I'm a fledgling artist, just sorta starting to make art outside of pointless school assignments.
The thing is, whenever I see someone do something cool, then I feel like doing whatever they did, e.g. I read a book and want to become a writer, hear music and attempt to learn the piano (got bored after a while), but my sister is an artist and I don't like people showing me up soo I've started making art!
Also, Shameless promotion 2 my dA site: http://metallicdragon.deviantart.com/

Anyone else want to share their art?

Everything Else / Gaming Steve has a kid?!?!
« on: December 12, 2005, 06:21:21 pm »
I honestly had no idea you were married! As far as I've been listening to your podcast (not very long but meh) I've never heard you mention a child!

I dunno, I just kinda was caught off guard when you said that you have a child and are indeed married, too.
