      Charliez

      I decided that I haven't been difficult enough this past year, so to make matters confusing I'm now moving over to a new account: Ben.

      I originally went with "Charliez" because I wanted to sign up my brother the day he was born. And I did. But that concept sort of got scrapped and it's getting tiresome having people think my name is Charlie, which it isn't, so I'm moving over to an account that actually has my real name! Huzzah!

      Please update your watch list, block list, etc. If you were on my friends list I'll be sending a new request. Thanks guys!

    • MacWorld: Jobs To Wear Black Shirt/Jeans

      11 years ago

      Charliez
      It’s been a wild week of anticipation for Apple fans. As the Digg Macworld countdown counts down at the top of the homepage, I constantly reload the Apple section (both popular and upcoming) for any glimmer of rumor or, dare I say it, confirmed news. Sadly, the rumors are all based on photoshopped educated guesses and the only confirmed news thus far has been the always vague banner erected pre-maturely just to give the fanboys something to decode/fap over.

      The wait for confirmed news is over.

      I have it from a very good source that Steve Jobs is going to wear a black shirt and blue jeans tomorrow. I can’t reveal how I know this source or how close they are to Apple HQ, but I’d bet my kids’ college money if I could find a bookie willing to take a wager on a keynote wardrobe. My source has revealed to me that the shirt will be a polycotton blend and the blue jeans will be held up by the skill of a tailor- not a belt.

      The most surprising wardrobe news? Apparently there’s somethings in the air at Macworld: Steve’s balls. No underwear for this CEO. That’s about as 2007 as ethernet ports and optical drives.


      Epic win.

    • Half-Life 2: Episode Two

      11 years ago

      Charliez

      Here's the deal.

      I had read about the ending to the game before I got there, so it came as no surprise to me. Apparently to most people the "close your eyes dear" line was a hard-hitter, but it didn't do much for me. That said the ending still was really difficult to watch, especially Alyx's "don't leave me" to Gordon in the black. Tough stuff.

      But here's what I'm thinking, how could this possibly be addressed in Episode Three? Gordon cannot speak. He can't even say "I'm sorry", so what the hell is Alyx going to do? Mope? That'll be interesting.

      As for the final boss battle, my heart was racing, that was the best damn game ender ever. There was three right next to the base at the very end and I was frantic trying to take them all down. Didn't die once. Phew.

      So yeah, bring on Episode Three. Oh, on the subject of the Borealis, "she's probably still alive up there". Still alive? Hmm, I wonder where I've heard that phrase before. It IS an Aperture Science ship...

    • Half-Life 2: Episode One

      So after 2 hours of gameplay I have completed the semi-old Half-Life 2: Episode One, and I can give my complete review on it.

      That is all.

    • Half-Life 2

      11 years ago

      Charliez

      So after 11 hours and 2 minutes of gameplay I have completed the ancient Half-Life 2, and I can give my complete review on it.

      To begin with, I hated this game. I hated its level design, I was constantly getting lost, there was never any clear path to take. The driving controls on the boat were absolutely horrible, and I couldn't shake the feeling that using the crane to advance in the game was just too cheesy.

      But as I approached the final few levels of the game, beginning with Nova Prospekt, my view changed. I was having fun now. I was beginning to understand the story much more (my favourite aspect in a game) and overall I felt the plot was actually moving forward to the grand finale.

      And the finale? Of course, Judith Mossman aka Admiral Helena Cain absolutely wins. The shot of Alyx in the elevator saying goodbye was touching, and the absolute end boss battle was brilliant.

      To summarise: I hated this game, but as it drew to its conclusion I really began enjoying myself. The game is fucking epic.

      So in the aftermath of Grifball.com launching I've already received another web design request from a company in the UK. I'm really looking forward to the future and becoming more "high profile", hopefully I'll be able to get a good string of constant work so money will come in at a smooth rate.

      Audi Q7 here I come. Hah.

    • Attack of the Show

      11 years ago

      Charliez

      So I watched Alex Albrecht's guest-hosting episode of Attack of the Show.

      I did not care for Kevin. At all. I thought he was... trying too hard, perhaps. The chemistry however between Alex and Olivia was great. If those two were the permanent hosts I could see myself watching AotS on a regular basis. They worked great together.

      Kevin, however, was just really kind of being an asshole to this guy who's house he was in. He raided his DVD collection in a desperate attempt to fill the time and make the segment seem more interesting. I did not care for him then throwing the DVDs onto the floor either, much to the apparent anguish of the kid (whoever he was supposed to be).

      Really did not like it. There was a hint of technology-related discussion in The Feed where the Xbox 360 Dashboard update was discussed, but beyond that it devolved into just discussions about things like a video of a guy unsuccessfully snowboarding on YouTube.

      No thanks.

      Hey there,

      My name is Ben King and it is my greatest pleasure to introduce you to the official Grifball website. This site will be the HQ for the upcoming Winter League. You can look at the divisions, see the schedule of upcoming games and browse through ridiculously detailed statistics for both teams and players.

      A lot of work has gone into this and I'd really like to hear your feedback. If you think something should be fixed, or something could be improved, please feel free to let me know either in email, PM or just posting in this thread. Unlike RoosterTeeth.com this site is going to see more periodical updates based on what the community says.

      So go forth, enjoy the site, and stay in school.

      - Ben

      CG has the longhorn nation and there are 2 profiles blake and matt who are not marked as developers.

      they are not even marked as part of the staff.

      To be perfectly honest, you've always struck me as an irritating kid.

      However, grifball.com is amazing and you did a great job. It's cool to see that kind of talent put to good use. Keep it up.

      hey man i found this little error below is the error and a detailed way to fix the error on the grifball site

      when you select a divison in the players tab and you try to go to page 2 you cant it gose to page to for the whole league i figure out how to view it if you could fix it id a preciate it man

      code:page 1 (using div2 as example)
      grifball.com/players.php?s=&div=2

      example
      linkpic.jpg
      the code you have for the page 2 is below
      code: grifball.com/players.php?page=2
      the code you need to put is the one below
      code: grifball.com/players.php?s=&div=2&page=2

      so for page 3 in div 2 you would change the second 2 to a 3 and for div 3 change the first 2 to a 3

      so in short div=* controls the division you'll display and the &page=* will control which ever page you want

      hope this helps charliez

      Hey Charliez. Sorry to bother you.

      It would seem the Officeal Ctrl-Alt-Del thread was deleted from the Comics & Anime Forum sometime in the last 24 hours. I don't know the reason for it, and was hoping that perhaps some light could be shed on the subject, or if I could, at the very least, create a new topic for the subject in said thread.
