  1. Please accept my resignation from Orion. I have already altered my sig accordingly. I wish I had the time to continue in the fleets, but my RL isn't so flexible right now. Maybe in the future.
  2. The entire decade of the 70s was a mistake.

    IGDA post-mortem UCAWA write-up

    quote: Pah! I'm going bald too. Good thing I usually keep my hair cut low. I was due for a hair cut (which I had this past weekend), so my bald spot is a little prominent in one of those shots. Shave it off SC!!! It will add to your mystique. Just an off-topic side note: My mom started chemotherapy for breast cancer four weeks ago. Rather than waiting for her hair to fall out, she grabbed the razor and shaved her head. She told me the stubble started coming out last week, but she just shrugged it off as "oh well." She's one tough lady.

    Universal Combat : A World Apart - NOW ON SALE!!

    Got my manual and keyboard today. Now when can I get a t-shirt? I'd love one with a BCM/UC logo.

    Roll Call

    Greg!!! How are you doing partner?
  6. I'm so sorry Jag. My dog Taffy passed away in 2001 and I still think of her everyday. I still keep her picture up at home, work, and in my wallet. She was my constant companion for fourteen years. I'm not saying you'll get over her but it will get better with time. I kept Taffy's favorite blanket and still keep it on our bed. In some ways it's like there still a part of her with me. We had one cat when Taffy passed on. I knew I wasn't ready for another dog. I was donating her food to the local SPCA and ended up adopting two more cats (siblings) who were on "death row." Another two strays later and we now have quite the brood. In some ways, Taffy is the cats' guardian angel because they never would have had the pampered life they lead now without the love she inspired in me and my wife. Hang in there my friend.

    Starship Troopers demo

    It captured the flavor of the movie. LOTS of bugs. Pretty standard run and gun (although in fairness the full version maybe completely different.) Anyone get past the crash site? I've died each time and that's on the easy setting.
  8. quote: John Carolan was sitting on his porch in the thick, humid darkness just before midnight Tuesday when three or four young men, one with a knife and another with a machete, stopped in front of his fence and pointed to the generator humming in the front yard, he said. One said, "We want that generator," he recalled. "I fired a couple of rounds over their heads with a .357 Magnum," Mr. Carolan recounted Wednesday. "They scattered." Rule # 1: Never bring a knife to a gun fight. Frakking scumbags.

    Starship Troopers demo

    I didn't know it was out yet. I'll try it this weekend.
  10. Right with you boss. My wife and I are ready for any such circumstances. In fact, she's a better shot than me (and never lets me forget it.)
  11. This situation is beginning to resemble Lucifier's Hammer meets The Stand. It's incomprehesible.

    Forum Wars 2005

    Wow. Some people have pure venom running through their veins. You know a thread's irretrievable when they resort to the Nazism/facism argument. You've got much more patience than me Kal.

    First Impressions

    Got my copy today via BMT. The game installed no sweat and is running smooth as silk. The graphics are great and the models are gorgeous. The new effects for hyperjumps and explosions are very cool. The sounds seem less harsh to me and much more immersive. This may sound silly, but my favorite game change so far is the subtle flash when ships warp into your sector. That's a nice touch that heightens my awareness of what's around me. Kudos to you and your team SC. It's going to be a great weekend.

    Brosnan out as James Bond 007 - Daniel Craig in!

    Ok, let's address this issue once and forever: make a young clone of Sean Connery.

    Brosnan out as James Bond 007 - Daniel Craig in!

    quote: Rowan Atkinson using the 'Mr. Bean' persona. [popcorn] (I know he did 'Johnny English', but that wasn't 'Beanish' enough) Lock phasers on target.

    Brosnan out as James Bond 007 - Daniel Craig in!

    quote: Vin diesel? As much as I like him as Riddick, I don't think he's very suave and debonair.

    Brosnan out as James Bond 007 - Daniel Craig in!

    Pierce was the best. I read Hugh Jackman turned it down already but I don't think he was a good match anyway. He lacks the subtle cruelty Bond is supposed to have. I also read that Ewan McGregor was interested -- ack. It's time for an unknown.

    Night on DVD: Alexander Directors Cut

    Just think: you could "film" it with the Rome: Total War engine.
  21. LIS, go read the updated section on his feud with Scott Ramsoomair and VG Cats.
  22. Yanked from Gamespot: quote: RUMOR #2: The FBI is investigating death threats e-mailed to Florida attorney and feisty game industry critic Jack Thompson. Source: E-mails threatening great bodily harm forwarded to this and other publications by the attorney himself, as well as a Thompson-penned plea to Senators Hillary Clinton and Joseph Lieberman (sent to their offices and media outlets, including GameSpot) wherein Thompson asks for "help your respective offices could give me in persuading the FBI to act in response to these threats." The official story: "People are threatening to kill me." And: "The FBI is all over these." --Jack Thompson. "No comment." --FBI spokesperson, North Miami Beach Division. What we heard: Among the dozens (and dozens) of unsolicited e-mails this Web site has received from attorney Jack Thompson over the past weeks, a handful were singular in nature: they included e-mails purportedly sent to Thompson which contained threats on his life. By anyone's standard, the e-mails sounded dastardly, indeed. One read: "For being a total f***ing ***hole. I think video games or [sic] freaking awesome, and they are my entire life, and for you to insult them, is like telling me my life is totally worthless. For this, sir, I AM GOING TO F***ING KILL YOU!!!" [Expletives masked by asterisks.--ed.] Another forwarded to GameSpot from Thompson read: "this is not spam, its [sic] my right as a citizen to send you thousands upon thousands of emails saying the same thing until you die painfully from gun shot wounds." And a third: "Everyone thinks you are insane, hence the name 'Wacko Jacko', which makes you the equivalent of a molester. Therefore you are gay. I hate you, and the world would be a better place if you were brutally murdered." We gasped along with Thompson. When we alerted Thompson that we intended to seek out additional details and verification of his claims from the FBI itself--as to the status of such an investigation and progress being made (the FBI employs trained media specialists for such purposes), Thompson replied with some urgency: "Are you, crazy? ... People are threatening to kill me. Either report what I have said, having been provided the emails, or stop bothering me." Bogus or not bogus?: With members of the Bar (aka lawyers) compelled to tell-the-truth-the-whole-truth-and-nothing-but-the-truth, and an FBI agent who doesnÔÇÖt overtly deny that an investigation is underway, likely not bogus. Do a search on him at Wikipedia. Great background info.

    Night on DVD: Alexander Directors Cut

    I'll be curious to see what you think Scriv. Being a history buff, I almost rented it Friday night but my wife stopped me.

    Universal Combat : A World Apart - NOW ON SALE!!

    quote:btw, does anyone remember those huge wall poster sized galaxy maps we did back when BCM was released? If there is any interest for those (to the newbs around here), I can have those done as well and offer them for sale. Speaking as anal type (I prefer the term perfectionist), I'd definitely be interested.
