Hey everyone! Sorry for the…very…extended absense but now I’m back! Hopefully tomorrow I’ll post some things I have been up to: my impressions of the Nexus One (yup, I got it), the Starcraft 2 Beta, and a few other things. So stay tuned…more exciting things to come!

Google Nexus One

January 5, 2010 Leave a comment

I am very excited to get this phone, and yes, one way or another, I…will…get…it.

But I either pay $530 or start my own plan.  Right now I have a shared plan with my sister, and the discount price of $180 is only for new or individual customers.  As much as I like Google…HOW CAN THEY SCREW UP SO BAD.  I’m taking a wild guess that not many people are on a plan by themselves so it was a silly idea to sell a phone like this.

A Few Games to Consider

January 4, 2010 Leave a comment

Over the past week I have supported Steam and the games they offer and have compiled a list of games that anyone interested should take a look at.

With the holidays over and gifts in use, me with a new 23″ HD monitor to test all my games out on, it’s time to find some new games.  Since most games didn’t come out around the holiday season this year, I looked at a few that I overlooked at first, most of which I was very happy with.  I’m getting into the smaller Indie games.

Here’s my list of games to try:

  • Braid
  • Osmos
  • Torchlight
  • Trine

Summaries after the jump…

Downtime

Well…my internet was down for the weekend if any of you were wondering what was up with the lack of posts.

However, obviously, I have it back and I should have regular posts returning in a day or two!

CodeIgniter

December 15, 2009 Leave a comment

Wow, I started going through some CodeIgniter and being a neat freak when it comes to the organization of code this makes things WAAAAY easier nicer to use.  However, it will take some time and practice to learn and get used to.

In other words, I can’t wait to put it to use on a real website.

Free Time

I have lots of free time today so I figure I will learn some photoshop so I can make websites all by myself.  I usually find someone with fair knowledge of photoshop for images and such but it’s been harder of late with eveyone in different schools and such.

I also blasted lots of Justice because I recently discovered their awesomeness.

In case any of you are wondering my iTunes library consists of mainly 3 artists: Deadmau5, The Crystal Method, and Justice.  Naturally I have BSOD and WTF? along with Deadmau5 but it’s silly not to.

Anyway, I think I’m gonna go play some Left 4 Dead 2.

Dear media …die.

December 14, 2009 Leave a comment

During my break at work today I was paging through a tabloid.  To be perfectly honest I didn’t want to, but I had nothing else to do.  All I saw was pictures and gossip.  I hate gossip, mainly because in the attempt to bash a celebrity for doing something stupid, the media is giving that celebrity what they really want: attention.

Another reason I almost burnt the thing was because there was a picture of Arnold Schwarzenegger driving his son.  This was the caption: “Arnold drives his son.”  No destination, no reason…no joke.  I’m being completely serious.  There was a inserted picture of Zac Effron and another caption that said: “Arnold’s son looks just like Effron!”

Really?  Why not just fill this page with a pile of crap and say “Dear reader, if you have made it this far into this magazine then maybe you should take a look at what we REALLY just introduced to your brain.” </rant>

Maybe I just don’t understand how the media works, but I’m pretty sure they’re just zombies with make-up brainwashed into taking pictures and coming up with a steaming bowl of elephant piss as a story and sell it to make large amounts of $$$.

I think I’ll go with the latter.
