      Well, this feature has been a long time coming. Not sure when they added this, but I just saw it today and finally got rid of that terrible old name, once and for all.


      Church was right in the Tattoo Point-Counterpoint PSA from back in the day. 10 years ago, I was a goddamned idiot.


      Well now I'm a goddamned idiot with a new name!

      What an incredible length of time for anything on the internet to exist without interruption.

      And that's just my account, this site has been around slightly longer than that. Amazing.

      I should spend more time here, like I used to.

      I remember when I used to be on this site all the time. I'd post about one journal a day, and one thread a month. But now it's been 7 months since the last time I posted a journal.

      I got some pretty decent pics at the Petit LeMans almost two weeks ago. When I have time, I'll sort through those and post the best ones up.

      Where the hell did all this fog come from? It's ridiculously dense.

      And apparently the forecast says it's going to stick around for almost a week.

      "DO YOU, AINT NEVA BEEN SUCH A HATER"

      I saw this displayed across a pickup truck window on my drive up to my mom's place yesterday.

      Does anyone have any idea what the hell that's supposed to mean? It seems like gibberish to me.

    • Happy Birthday, Halo

      It's almost hard to believe it's been 10 years already.

      I love Halo: CE Anniversary. The gameplay of the original still feels great, and the updated graphics almost make it feel like a whole new game.

      So where I work, the hours each employee gets is determined by how many store discount memberships they sell.

      Since I'm the new guy, obviously I get put where I can't miss big opportunities, since the store has to constantly make a certain percentage. But that means I also don't have any opportunities to sell the cards (I usually get sent to the mall entrance with the magazine wall, where people typically make very small purchases, making it extremely hard to sell anyone a $20 discount card), so it's hard for me to get hours. Last week I only got 2 days and this week I got 3.

      But luckily for me, there's another way to get more hours. And that is by getting promoted to a specialist position. All specialists are guaranteed 5 days a week, almost full time hours.

      So I'm looking at becoming Magazine specialist. The last guy who had the position left, and now I'm the only person who wants it, and I'm also the best at it out of everyone there. I'm also better at it than the guy who left. Woot.

      Hey, I have a quick question for you. It's in regards to Forza 4. Lets say my friend has Forza 3 and Imports a Unicorn car to Forza 4, would he be able to "gift" that car to me? Because I will not buy Forza 3 for one lousy achievement. If you could get back to me ASAP I would be extremely grateful.

      How the hell did you go so quickly on the R18 challenge? Do you let the GT2 guys get a big gap or something? You're like ten seconds faster than Stavros and I!

      • BobSalawalatski

        7 years ago

        I just went back and did a few laps again, and set a better time. I got about 4 seconds faster (1:55.544), but it's still a pretty awful lap overall, in my opinion.

        So far the best way I've found to get past the GT2 traffic fast is to get very close to them, especially under braking. What I do is brake late and almost-suicidally dive past a whole line of traffic, and hopefully manage to pass all of them at once. If not, I can dodge around the last one or two while exiting the corner.

        But the key is very precise car control, to fit the car into spaces that look too small for it.

      • BobSalawalatski

        7 years ago

        I'm actually not sure how I managed to set a clean lap. The GT2 cars were still pretty evenly distributed around the track because I just ran 2 laps, beat my rival, and ended it since I really just wanted to set a time for a chance at one of the unicorn cars they're giving away for that challenge.

      Really excited for F4, but really I think more than the cars, they need more tracks. More cars is great, but we need some real tracks! Infineon, Lime Rock, Barber, Long Beach, St Pete, Phillip Island, Montreal, Mosport, Paul-Ricard, Imola, Monza, Ascari Circuit, Mid-Ohio, Algarve, San Luis, Abu Dhabi, Shanghai, Sao Paolo, VIR, Monticello, Watkins Glen, Indy, Bathurst, Spa, Monaco! So many options! I am disappoint.

      I see. Hope you can get a new 'Box in good time.

      Did you drift on Forza 3? We should do some tandem battles or something. I need to keep the Camaro sharp.

      If I remember correctly, all LTS designation means is that the OS will be officially supported and updated for 5 years after release, rather than 2.

      Kickass generator site. I've been wondering for some time now how it is that people are generating these links. Up until now, about the only thing I thought it was useful for was linking to app markets for smart phones.

    • Scimitar7

      8 years ago

      Yeah, I have 3.

      I'm thinking about painting my old white one because it's also broken. Same problem as yours had, actually. Might as well paint it a cool color while I have it apart, when I get around to getting the laser.

      I'm thinking a matte dark blue, maybe.

      Or I might paint it with chalkboard paint. That's something I don't think anyone has done yet.

      I say go for it, it's really not difficult. Heck, the laser replacement would have only taken an hour + a few minutes had I gotten everything together before disassembly.

    • Scimitar7

      8 years ago

      Well, you have what? 3 of them? The only reason I got the guts to do this was because it broke, and I got an Elite to replace it, so if I screwed it up to the point of beyond repair, who cares? Big deal, right?

      I'm actually pretty glad that it turned out okay, because my folks recently expressed interest in Netflix, and I know that you can watch movies through a 360, so I can put the silver one in the living room for them, and keep my Elite in my room.

      Yeah, it was kinda short. I didn't know what other songs to work with, and the one I picked was barely a minute and a half.

      It sounds really cool, but I think I'll pass. I'm pretty sure I would mess around with it once or twice then lose interest. I have a couple of forums I already keep up with, heh.

      360 Slim, eh? First I've heard of this rumor.

      If it DOES turn out to be true, I will certainly be purchasing one instead of replacing the old 360 right away. Since I still do have one working console, I will wait an see what happens at E3 next month, I suppose.

      That didn't work, but I finally found something that did: rendering it in the IE engine instead of Firefox's. Thank God for the IE Tab add-on. I'll never have to go back to that browser again...

      Dude, my kart was awful. I talked to the owner of the track before the race started, and he told me that some karts had the potential to be a full second faster than mine. Second place, with the fastest lap, was 40 pounds lighter than me. Big difference in speed there.
      Thanks man - I would have preferred getting a faster time, but the win still works. smiley8.gif
