Star Wars Galaxies Review

| 28 Comments

God what a waste of $50. The most miserable computer game I have ever played. Take Ultima Online but put a Star Wars skin on everything. How lame. If one wants to play Ultima Online that it already exists. It was about as Star Wars like as say The Phantom Menace.

10 Lies

Ten Appalling Lies We Were Told About Iraq, and I'm still waiting for the indepentant council to be formed to investigate. If a blowjob is worth investigating then why not the creation of intelligence? Oh wait not while there is a Republican controlled House of Representatives.

Star Wars Galaxies Released

I have to admit, the whole Massively Multiplayer Online Gaming never really caught my fancy. Partly they never really looked, graphicly, all that good, partly the $10 per month fee and partly a setting that never really intrested me. Today that has changed, the setting that is and the look cause Star Wars Galaxies is released and shipping. Now do I order and allow for the 2-3 days shipping or hope to find a copy over the weekend?

A little confession. I actually purchased a new box, well the parts for a new box, in anticipation for Galaxies. The only part left to upgrade is the video card, depending on preformance.

A good friend will come bail you out of jail... but a true friend will be sitting next to you saying, "Damm... We Fucked Up"

Abridged Matrix Reloaded

Most of it is only funny after having seen Reloaded, well except for the bellow :)

THE EXPLAINER
Many years ago, shortly before the success of Speed, you sold your soul to the devil in exchange for a promise of notoriety that your piss-poor acting skills do not deserve. This series is the actualization of this promise.

Photo MetaData

Reading a recent rant on the state of personal digital photos lead me for a search of more EXIF editing info on windows and the find...
Photo Studio is also an invaluable tool for exploring the meta data stored along with your image files. The program supports a wide variety of meta data standards, including EXIF, CIFF, Olympus, JFIF and Photoshop. EXIF data will be of particular interest to digital camera users - it is the format used by most digital cameras to store camera settings along with an image.

Damm thought I had more personality than that :)

Peep Jousting

One of the ways I keep things intresting being at the horse job is sharing various bits of geek culture with horse culture. Shortly after Easter cool things to do with Marshmallow Peeps came up. Such as microwaving and Peep Jousting. To my surpirse the coworkers have become quite fascinated with the idea. The intrest has lead them to the Peeps company and running around central Kentucky looking at all the leads to no avail. There is even some wanting to pick Ebay Peeps.

Oh, and if you think geek culture is a bit strange it is pretty "normal" compared to horse culture. Damm those folks are strange.

Bit on TackBack

Take Your TrackBacks and Dangle a negative piece on TrackBack.
In a nutshell, TrackBack was designed to provide a method of notification between websites: it is a method of person A saying to person B, "This is something you may be interested in." To do that, person A sends a TrackBack ping to person B.
For those of you using Blosxom there is Writeback which does commenting and TrackBack.

Web Developer Tool

Edison's Lesson for the RIAA

Thomas Edison, Intellectual Property and the Recording Industry or what history can teach us about the current situation between MPAA and RIAA vs. people and the independants. Hint, Edison's monoply and strong arm tactics brought the intervention of the government after the indepents make the monoply absolete.

Update: Part 3 is up.

Auctions Suck

In case you didn't know this about me, I really hate auctions, and haggeling in general. The specific reason tonight relates to staying up watching the time count down on a nice dual G4 box to be killed in seconds by someone with a proxy.

Regardless of the above auctions and haggeling really do suck, but that is another story.

Hardware Suggestions

Question for the peeps. Given given a small buisness with 20 employees looking to replace 5-10 desktops a year plus a server or two which OEM would be suggested given price, warrenty and support? Remember the desktops would all be relatevely lowend and preferable come with XP and Office.

My other idea is to build everything myself and try to get a reseller deal given the kiosks we will also be distrubting but I need some price comparrisons.

And if you fondered about the kiosk comment, one of the big work projects is putting information kiosks in all the horse feed dealships in the world.

Hello my name if fozbaca and I am a MacAddict. It has been 4 years since my last Mac and I can finally afford one, eMac. The more and more I check Mac sites and read all the cool shit, hell even on fozbaca.org the franken mac can't be escaped. I know that the money earned through the putting up with windows weenies and horsie girls should be put to produtive use like savings or investment but the old addiction is hard to shrug off...

Babylon 5 Season 2 DVD

Broke down yesterday and picked up the Babylon 5 Season 2 DVD. First thing was to check the special features on the first disk which had some interviews with the cast, amazing to compare how they looked 9-8 years previous. There is an audio commentary for episode 3 Geometry of Shadows which has Bruce Boxleitner, Claudia Christian and Jerry Doyle, who played John Sheridan, Susan Ivanova, who is god, and Michael Garibaldi respectively. They really come off as a bunch of friends bullshitting about what they did years earlier.

I'm a big fan of Space Opera gaming, the Role Playing variety. Also I have love for all games Fuzion powered. Now imagine my joy apon seeing Lightspead RPG which is a Fuzion based Space Opera setting. The buisness model has them publishing via PDF, intresting and cheap. Now to actually get a chance to play the game.
