my hello kitty fan page got taken down. i'm not sure if i have any of that stuff backed up. there are a few old hard drives that i need to go through. the wayback machine doesn't have it archived.

fallout 3 still looks like shitass.

i was on the phone the other day a few weeks ago with our corporate masters discussing the deployment of a software firewall to our laptop users. stop me if you heard this one:

senornacho: "yeah, we'll probably be between 75-80% deployed by the end of july. after that it'll just be catching those who've fallen in the cracks. oh, and i've got to upgrade our previous testers with the new patch 2 package you gave us, even though it doesn't upgrade properly--"

overlord: "oh! we've got a solution for that, there are some command-line options you can use... here hold on let me email you--"

senornacho: "i know, i sent that to you."

overlord: "you did? oh that's right, YOU DID! i've been forwarding your email to all the other divisions. thanks so much for that! how did you figure it out?"

senornacho: "i took the package apart and looked at it. those are pretty standard commands, i just pulled them from technet. since your patch isn't really a patch but the original install with some additional files injected into it... because i looked..."

overlord: "wha- how are you taking the installer apart?"

senornacho: "we have wise package studio. 7. service pack 3."

overlord: "oh. well, thanks AGAIN! i'm getting another phone call so i've gotta go. i'll get with you in a few weeks to get an update on the deployment."

senornacho: "alright."

let this be a lesson to you: if you put out a patch, either make it a patch or inject the new files into the original installer and change the version number.

wow, the Hellgate: London demo is really fucking shitty. i was going to use "underwhelming" but "shitty" just fits a lot better. it's quite possibly the worst demo i've ever tried.

despite what one might think, germany is not filled with bearded men. in fact, it's quite the contrary. apparently the beard fad has not caught on in europe quite like it has in the states. i can literally count on one hand the number of beards i've seen out of the thousands of people i've drunkenly run into so far.

i am stared at and (quite possibly) ridiculed everywhere we go. even so, i've gotten a few compliments but it still feels strange to be the only lumberjack in a nation of beer-drinking goat herders.

i was kicked out of an Oktoberfest beer tent not once but TWICE. from what i understand this is an impressive and often hard to accomplish feat. i'd like to say i did it with style and panache, but i actually walked out the wrong goddamned door the first time, and then was "escorted" out by burly men the second time for trying to sneak back in.

being stuck in a foreign country with nothing but a beer buzz is amusing at first until you start so sober up and realize that you have no ID, no money, and no way to contact the people you are with.

we go to london for a 4-day weekend on friday. i'll have lots more drinking to do before then.

the Fallout 3 hype train has pulled in to the station and as expected the "gaming journalists" have collectively creamed their pants at how Fallout-y it is. for example:

a hand-held nuclear rocket launcher called "Fat Man"

collectible bobble heads

the much touted and mysterious V.A.T.S. system is a way to queue up shots ala KOTOR

a hacking mini game like Password which apparently is player skill based instead of character skill based

a toaster that shoots objects you scrounge from the ground at enemies

the Brotherhood of Steel is apparently some kind of overt military presence now

cars are the new exploding barrels of the typical FPS game. except inexplicably these are now cars with nuclear reactors in them that set off little mushroom clouds

you've got to be shitting me. why aren't any of the large gaming sites questioning this idiocy? oh, because game sites are a fucking joke. this game is going to sell like hotcakes.

so last week my account was suspended on Gamespot/GameFAQs and then two days later i was outright banned. i asked them why my account had been suspended since there was no information other than two marked posts i'd made. let me just say that they aren't really good posts so i didn't care at the time that i'd been suspended. i figured that after a week or so (i'd never been suspended or really in trouble there before) i'd be back on.

a couple days later i log back in and i find out i'm banned. this seems pretty harsh to me and i don't understand why it'd been done. i submit the help form and then go on vacation the next day. i just checked my e-mail and here was the response:

Your account was terminated for saying that you were an underage user. Because you posted this in a game specific board, your account was terminated on GameFAQs and then terminated on the GameSpot end. You also have a variety of moderations from game specific boards (which are moderated by GameFAQs staff and volunteer moderators) .

If you made up a joke, this will have your account terminated as well. For the record, COPPA http://www.coppa.org/ is a very serious protection act and by law we cannot allow anyone under this age of 13 years old to give us their personal information. The violation you did was very serious and as stated in the Terms of Use, this is something that will cause your account to be permanently banned if we find that you entered false information to register for our website services.

Because you have a moderation history full of disruptive behavior, I highly doubt that you will have your account reinstated but you are more than welcome to contact GameFAQs.

yes, i'm a disruptive underage user. my reply:

I was on vacation so I was unable to reply. Are you seriously telling me that I was banned for typing this:

"I'm this many: *holds up four fingers*

I wet my pants. "

In a "what's your age" thread? What four year-old would do that? How could I possibly be four years old when my account was created years ago? It's obvious that it was a joke. What would have happened if I had said I was 7 months old instead?

As for my "full of moderation history" I see three items in there: One for creating a topic about a removed topic (created nearly 2 months prior!), one for the above and one for my most obvious offense, telling a fanboy to go elsewhere. That certainly shows that I'm a disruptive member.

At any rate, I understand that I'll have to take this up with GameFAQs so I'll try to appeal on their end. Thank you for the explanation on why I was banned even though I still think it was pretty excessive. Again, I'd request a suspension over a ban since I'm not really underage. I guess all the big words I use must make me a pretty smart toddler! (that's a joke, too)

fucking retarded people moderate that site.

About 10 hours later, it's finally up. Ron Perlman voiceover, the Ink Spots playing "I Don't Want to Set the World on Fire." Here's some pictures, enjoy.

I'd write more about why I'm so angry about this shit but frankly, I'm too goddamned depressed. Let's just say that I waited 10 fucking years to be shat on once again.

More CGI shit after the cutCollapse )

i don't want to sound like a player hater or anything, but Jerry Falwell is getting his just desserts right now.


i don't want to sound like a player hater or anything, but i sincerely hope he goes all Terri Schiavo-style.

i don't want to sound like a player hater or anything, but i would secretly cheer if i heard he was dead.

god... the music sounds really fucking bad. goddamn fucking jeremy fucking soule. it's going to be fucking oblivion with fucking guns. i fucking knew it and i've been saying it for the past two fucking years.


in 33 days this fucking shit will finally be confirmed. hopefully before then some intrepid lads will have reverse-engineered the Van Buren engine also coincidentally released yesterday and the fans can work on the real fallout game.

it's a sad state of affairs when the first thing i hear upon turning to CNN this morning is about the need for increased gun control.

when will people realize that taking the guns away from law-abiding citizens will not stop gun violence? while we'll never know if a couple of armed students could have stopped yesterday's rampage, we do know what happened when no one but the gunman was carrying.

you cannot rely on the police to protect you. they are by their very nature a reactive organization. it's the odd or rare chance that a crime is thwarted and that typically caused by an off-duty policeman... or a citizen who was armed.

as of right now i find no fault in the way the situation was handled by the various police agencies involved. there's no real way to deal with someone who's prepared to execute everyone he can other than taking him out. he wasn't going to surrender and he wasn't going to stop until someone stopped him or he ran out of ammo.

i urge the two of you who still read this to challenge those around you who may suggest that we need stronger gun control. explain to them that by taking the guns out of the hands of responsible citizens you place us all in jeopardy against those who care nothing for laws.

<nerd>on corporate's AS/400 cluster there is approximately 7.3 terabytes of storage. Austin/Waco will take up approximately 1/7th of that space. corporate needs to stop being stingy and buy more machines.

corporate's internal network connection goes down at least twice a day.  we lose all corporate-controlled resources and software while they are down. AS/400's are notoriously picky when it comes to dropping connection.  what will happen when corporate's network burps?  will 850+ users suddenly be booted?  i'm thinking subsystem restarts and large-scale job nukes to get everyone back on.  i hope i won't be here when it does.</nerd
