A word from FDR

These economic royalists complain that we seek to overthrow the institutions of America. What they really complain of is that we seek to take away their power. Our allegiance to American institutions requires the overthrow of this kind of power. In vain they seek to hide behind the flag and the Constitution. In their blindness they forget what the flag and the Constitution stand for. Now, as always, they stand for democracy, not tyranny; for freedom, not subjection; and against a dictatorship by mob rule and the over-privileged alike.



(Apologies for political rant)

Word of warning, y'all are going to see a LOT of stuff posted here about this game.

Deal with it....

Ever read Slashdot?

It might be worth your while

May the Force be with you.

Yep, you read right, I unsubscribed from cable. I know, many of you dear readers are saying, "WTF?!?!?!" It's not as extreme as you first think.

First of all, I didn't watch a great deal of TV. Certainly, I do watch South Park, Fringe, Simpsons, Family Guy, and Battlestar Galactica. But really, not a lot compared to what is out there. However, I DID NOT GIVE ANY OF THIS UP!

How is that? You ask.

Well, my laptop has a S-Video connector which my TV also has. It also has a handy headphone adapter that I can hook into my surround sound system. I upgraded to Roadrunner premium when I dropped my cable and decided to start using the following websites...

Now, I am aware that these do not provide UBER picture quality, but if I want that, I'll watch the DVD! Oh, and yes...they have commercials, but...they are about 15 seconds of commercial per 15 minutes of TV....that is LESS than it would be if I fastforwarded on the DVR.

I'm saving $50/month by doing this.

NEW "Weird Al"!

As reported on Slashdot, Weird Al has decided to start releasing songs as he records them directly to iTunes. The first track has arrived, "Whatever You Like" a parody of TI's...."Whatever You Like".

It's only 99 miserable, lousy, stinking pennies.

That's less than a dollar...and considering how much THAT is worth right now, it's a bargain!

WAR! Huh?! What is it good for?

So, it seems that almost everyone I know who is remotely interested in MMOs is playing Warhammer Online Age of Reckoning. I've not played it yet, but my first impression was that it was a WoW rip-off (and I found WoW to be quite boring). Apparently, that is not necessarily the case and is a gem among MMOs. If I pick it up, I will on my next payday, but right now, I've started researching it.

SO, for any of you MMOers out there...have you played it? What do you think? Feel free to leave comments and let me know!

- Dr. Ruth Leavitt, "The Andromeda Strain"

At least my blood isn't turning into dust, it's only felt that way for the past month...

Here is a little bit of entertainment to tide you over until the next REAL missive from me....

Apologies if this has been pulled before you view it
