The music on the Robot Unicorn Attack flash game rocks!
I see Epi is kicking but in it.
But the game needs more rainbows.  :-*

Time, Money, and gaming skills are things lacking for me right now for this lanparty.

Good day Mr. Iron,

Ya $40 is better for a 2 day event. The only thing is I never seem to get gaming till after 7PM and your already wrapped up by 6PM the next day.

The gigabit network is a great thing to have, but it's not like your routing every packet, so it doesn't increase the workload for the host. The professional concession though sounds very nice. Too me, that in it's self would raise the amount of work by 5X. Throw some chips and pop on a table and you won't have to work that hard. All gamers really need is Bawls, right Fujitsu?

The only other thing that would be holding me back from attending besides money is, no cash prizes for an Angry Birds tourney. Not even a farmville one! You would have Fujitsu and Zeus on your doorstep in a heart beat.

Yes I am joking. I know the fun of hosting.

I agree that would be too bad to reschedule. The $50 admission price is a little bit out of my price range for a one day event. I just had a lanparty at the end of the year, and I am already starting to get the itch for another lanparty *cough* Vulclan *cough*  ::)
Now what's this "big undertaking" Fujitsu? I mean, all the host has to do is unlock the door to the place. Everyone who comes to the lanparty brings "their" own computer and "they" connect them up to a network. And everyones computer is always virus free and patched all up. See the big undertaking is all broaken up amongst the lanparty participants. That's what makes it so much fun, because no one has to do more work than anyone else at the event. And that is why I feel that the price of the event would be close to free except for the cost of power and the venue.

Cute cats and fuzzy kittens. Now some one has too much tech in their house. Next thing people will be getting a call from their cats cellular collar demanding dinner from the next room. I kept waiting for the kitten cannon to make an appearance.  ;)

Fujitsu, I'd recommned not using your email address
And maybe don't have the person drop off any items at your "Other" job. The fishnet stockings might scare them.   :o

Sold a truck, filled a rental spot, and bought a mitre saw for $20 all on Kijiji in the last year.
Never tried Craigslist.
I don't think I've sold anything on ebay yet (man I thought those screen shots of Fujitsu owning Nicao in UT would have sold by now.)

General Mayhem / [Frontpage News]80% of TV Viewing Still in SD
« on: November 11, 2010, 01:01:09 PM »

Apparently the HD revolution hasn't really caught on like everyone has thought as a new survey found that 80% of TV viewing in the US is still done is Standard Definition. 56% of US households have a HD TV, but that still leaves 44% of people happy with SD TV's. It surprised me that the number was still that high, but Yahoo N. . .

I have a TV that does Standard Definition. I have a computer that Does Hight Definition. I have a laptop that struggles with full screen low resolution Standard Definition. So now lets see, would it make any sense to pay extra for Hight Definition if I can get the jist of what is going on in the show I am watching on my laptop? Plus higher costs in bigger bandwidth packages may also stop people from upgrading to HD. I know there is a number of times I have tried to set the level of video to HD, but my small pipe wouldn't handle it.

And we have a sponsor!
bcchardware - for the network gear use.
Headwater Equipment Sales Ltd. - energy drinks and cash prizes.
Askatech Computer Services - with some cool cooling prizes.

I will take your invite for the use of your network gear. That way I won't have to down my network and move it around. It will be nice to see that QNAP unit. I've played with a smaller model before but I thought it was great for the size and features. I actually have that QNAP 209 Pro torn apart on my workbench with a dead motherboard and fried hard drives. Best guess is that a hard drive failed and continued to power cycle till the customer noticed, and then told me about it a week or two later.

Only two more sleeps!

I'm getting excited. Tables are setup. Now to run the power and network cables.
And find a place to hide all the junk that a garage seems to accumulate.

I'll be starting the LANParty at 10AM on Saturday.
Gives me 2 hours to setup the computer before lunch. I think I will actually be able to reach that goal this year!  ;D

Good day all.
It's getting close to that time a year again.
I am having a LANparty on Saturday October 23rd.  Again it is at my place in the garage (Got the wood for the stove already).
The game this year will be Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2. I still have my Unreal Tournament 3 server running, just incase the internet goes down and Modern Warfare 2 stops working.
Bring a couple bucks for Pizza or Chineese.

And to sum it up:

Who: Everyone I have gamed with at VulcLAN is welcomed
What: Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 LANParty
Where: BoneRak's house in Lethbridge Alberta
When: October 23rd 2010.
Why: Skill honing, low ping LAN's are tough to beat for the close rivalry and high adrenaline rushes of good games.

General Mayhem / [Frontpage News]Parellel Port is Alive and Well
« on: August 11, 2010, 01:17:34 PM »
If you believe everything you read on the internet, you'll find out that the parallel port is still a valid piece of connectivity.  Don't believe me?  Then take a look at this awesome pairing of dongles and adapters over at Gizmodo. 

This one is one farther than I have seen it before. I have had a customer think it would work up to the serial port connection..

Sweet, I won the  Technocel PowerPak

Sent my email info, and no Fujitsu, My summer home in Camperville is being rented out to Zeus lately.  :P

What are the chances of getting a tour of the BCCHardware South Studio and picking up the prize at the same time?

I might even be able to bake some cookies (fresh off the shelf from Walmart) for the trip.

Thanks Weekly Tech Update and happy birthday!
