Where did I put that...

Oh! Hi there. I didn't realize I hadn't posted about anything substantial
in a while. Well, after today that will still be the case...

Things of note:

a new version of Java was officially released. Doesn't really mean
much to the general populace, but if you let it auto update on your pc
then beware of strange things in your old apps (at least just be aware
that problems could occur
If you haven't played Gears of War and you get a chance you should.
Beware though, this game is not for the kiddies (which the rating on the
box will plainly show). As far as shooters go it is a very nice game,
took me a bit to get used to the controls and the view (it is a 3rd
person view), but once you get your sea legs it's a fun ride.
Looking to get a new vehicle, have to get rid of the pickup, it was
The company is moving us around again, playing leap frog cubicle style
is a pain, but we have an excuse for being unproductive and it's the
companies fault :-)

That's not much and it's not very important but it's a busy time of year
and I haven't got a lot of tech brainstorming going on right now.

Until next time

Yeah I keep hearing good on Gears of War. I have a friend that hasn't bought a new console since January 1993 when he bought his Genesis... well his wife got him a XBox 360 for Christmas and he bought Gears or War and said it's super cool... Heather keeps telling me about some promotion Toys R Us has right now where you get a 100.00 gift card at Toys R Us if you buy a 360... she knows I want one eventually so she's bugging me to just get it now... but I'm gonna wait, I just got the Wii and I'm probably getting a few PC and DS games... and I just totally hijacked your post to talk about me... umm... yeah, I had to move and it was a drag... and my car sucks too! There, back on topic

HaHaHa. You win the prestigious You commented with almost as many or more words than the post had award. I hope you're proud of yourself.

I understand about the whole "not getting one yet" thing. I probably won't get any of the new consoles until they have already been passed by the next 2 generations of consoles. But I'm pretty happy with my DS, and I'm actually getting into the PSOne again, so classic gaming isn't so bad...

You have a 360? I didn't know that.

I have Gears of War but my 360 keeps crapping out every 15 minutes because the game is straining my console too much. Don't know how long it would take me to finish the game at that rate.

I don't have a 360, I play at Kyle's.
