bullet time

All kinds of little notes to make. I think a bulletted list will be easier to consume than a million little posts. Without further ado:

  • Had a War3 LAN party at Jerry’s this last weekend. We had six local attendees and two remote ones. For perhaps the first time in LAN party history, each participant had a legal copy of the game. (:
  • My motherboard passed on that same day. At first glance, that was very inconvenient. Upon second thought though, that motherboard was hit by lightening over a year ago, so it’s really no suprise that it died. The only suprise is that it lasted this long!
  • I ordred an Intel made motherboard as a replacement. I know my RAM survived. I’m hoping that my cpu survived (2.53Ghz non-HT P4). If it didn’t, I supposed I’ll just be ::forced:: to go buy a hyperthreaded processor. 😛
  • My brother Joe helped me yank a dead tree out of my back yard. The base of it was pobably 8-10 inches in diameter. Yanking things out of the ground with a tractor is fun. (:
  • I’m trying to find a place to run an ethernet cable from the basement up to the upstairs. I’ve yet to find a good spot. While I was nosing around in the basement though, I found a dead bird in the water heater’s vent. Very crispy.
  • Melissa and I have made good progress in getting our garden planted. Thus far we have onions, potatoes and turnips planted.
  • The MT-Blacklist is doing its job thus far. It has blocked 15 spams. It let one slip though, but that was no sweat to delete and add an entry into the blacklist for. It may have let that one through, but it prevented an unknown number of similar entries through comment rate-limiting. Yay for smart plugins.
  • That’s all I can think of at the moment. Work is work, so I’m not even going to bore you with that right now.
  1. Thanks^1000 for the MT-blacklist upgrade. I’m tired of being pestered about the size of my manhood. 😉

    I was not notified of a War3 lan party. I am officially miffed. Now that I have DSL I expect to get invitations to that sort of thing, even if I decline 99% of the time. I stick my tongue out at you — all of you! Oh, woe is me, woe, woe, woe!

    OK, I’m better now. But don’t let it happen again!

  2. Ditto on the miffed-ness. 😉

    Ryan and I might have to acquire a copy of said game so we could join in some future fun. Of course, I think I officially suck at RTS games.

  3. You know you’re both invited to Gamefest. Even if you have to “attend” from a distance. Although we’d much rather have you there in person.

  4. Ack! I had no idea that Foos was “endowed” with DSL, nor had I any idea that the Johnsons entertained themselves with war3! I’m the richer for knowing now though, let me tell you.

    You’ll each be invited next time we do such a thing. They’re quite fun, let me tell you. (:

  5. Well, I wouldn’t exactly say we entertain ourselves with War3, but we could be convinced to do so if the rewards were worth it. =)

    You’ll have to let us know what network games you’ll be playing so we could possibly join in on the fun.

  6. w00, larger War3 LAN party! w00!

    Oh, and war3 > all other networked games which might be played at a LAN party (except for *maybe* Rainbox Six-style games and appropriately modded FPSs).

    Sweet title for this post, too.
