    • Stat Pdding Scandle, my view

      11 years ago

      Scottland

      Probably no one will read this, but I would like to give my view about it about the whole thing.

      Firstly, the closest to origins of this as far as I knew (there may of been other planning that I ignored\forgot\didn't take part in) was being careful with the bomb tog et to the top of the division. So to me, the prolonging decision was made on the spot.

      Now altough this can be a bitch, the whole thing, both sides seemed ok about it and the so called "laughing at them"\"mocking them" ordel, I remember them laughing at some jokes (seeing names on comms while only hearing laughing).

      Both teams seemed ok about this, until the end of the game, when all I heard was them complaining about it.

      Unlike N1nj0 and armyman, 'm not going to apologize, for the fact that I didn't do anything wrong or anything that requires an apologie. I didn't mock anyone, I coudn't careless about stats, infact I even joked saying I'll break the betrayls record over the game (que a bit of laughter and being told that people have 80 odd). not once did I hear a complaint during the game.

      Now for people to complain afterwards just makes me sick, and angered. they are going to pull the whole "have fun rule" on an issue that ahs broken no rules. The are effectivly annoing me by making a fucking huge mountain out of a molehill, so therefore, they are breaking the same rule. Now if the other team were to do the same, I would of just put down the controller, turned off my headset if chatter bothered me, and just watched some tv for a while, and checked up to see if the game was over.

      At the end of the day, I would of done something to end the game quicker if someone I heard complaints that weren't made.

      That is all I've got to say, I'll comment no more about it unless asked by GB officals.

      It's now been over 24 hours and I still can't Believe it. Scotland beat the runners up of the World Cup (proper football) France for the SECOND time, this time in Paris. I still can't believe we scored. What a goal by James McFadden. Youtube it, it's a brilliant goal.

      I saw it at a packed club, we all just went mental when we scored and again at full time. Just got my voice back from celebrating.

      No, I'm not quoing the movie 300 (or spoofing it). Infact I'm quoting one of the worlds newest and best anti terrorist hero. No, not Jack bauer, he couldn't even clean this guys boots, no John Smeaton, the Glasgow Airport worker who decided to take a fag at the right time. So for any terrorists out there: "THIS IS GLASGOW, WE'LL SET ABOOT YE"

      Now thinking that a terrorist attack happened here, youd think we'd be going crazy shouting "WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE" or something, but everyone has really been calm about it, making jokes (and I mean Glaswegians like myself), and the only way people arn't flying out is if they can't due to flights being cancelled or stuff like that. I work in the luggage department of a shop and I thought that last Sunday was our best sunday since I started working there, hell someone was buying hand luggage bags for a flight a couple of hours after buying them.

      Really, Die Hard 2 needs to be remade now with this poster taking it's place.

      diehardsmeatze7.jpg

      Just remember guys, us Scots men laugh in the face of terrorism and kick them in the baws while they are on fire and we are drenched in petrol.! It's childs play for us. after all.........

      THIS IS GLASGOW, WE'LL SET ABOOT YE!

      ohh and in other news, got my offers for 2nd year in college and will be accepting them.

      Well, I had an exam a 2 wedensdays ago (the day the Halo beta should of been released, but the crackdown people like me had to wait longer for) for College.I can proudly tell you, Yesterday, I was told I passed
      fireworks_web.jpg

      I was close however, 4 marks away from a fail. If it was a pratical exam it would be a better story, but all I need was a pas for next year in college, then I'll need to pass that and then I'm off to Uni (for those who don't know, College is the dumb persons Uni here in the UK, but you can still get to Uni to get a degree via College, like I'm doing) and hopefully do Compputer games Technology.

      On other happy enws for me, Me and a mate were one of the lucky few here in the UK to get tickets for the Miami Dolphins v New York Giants fame in London in October. I've been looking forward to this match since I heard about it, and am glad I can go. All I need to do is arrange the rest of the trip to London for what should be a good day. I am aDolfan, while my mate is a Giants fan should it should be an interesting trip, but we wouldn't of cared who was plaing, we would still go.

      Anyway as it is exam time, I hope people do well (we'll it is sorta late now but there may be resits) and if your waiting for your results, hope it's good news.

      Hiya, longer time no journal, or sing in. Just been busy preparing for exams (which are tommorow btw) for college. Had one today which I passed, by the skin of my teeth (60% when I needed 60% to pass)

      Well apart from that nothing ahs happened.

      A lateish update on Cabooses campign to become First Minster of Scotland: He failed misrably, not even a vote, cause he forgot to say he was wanted to take part in the election. He said he "didn't want to get electionated" when asked why he didn't sign up. Anyway, got more pics up, with other characters (Grif, Sis, Simmons and Sarge) in flags.

      can't wait for the Halo 3 multiplayer beta tommorow, but will due to my exams.

      Anyway, see ya next time.

    • This has just got to stop.

      Hey all, not been on much recently due to being busy. Just started back at college after a nice 2 week holiday so my free time has cut down again.

      Now firstly I'll like to say my thoughts are with the relitives and friends of the victms of the Virginia tech masacare. My thoughts also goes towards those who are injured and their familys, and those who were in the area for having to go through the ordeal, they may have to live with a mental scar cause of this.

      Now a wee ran, I really really really really hate x 1000000 to the power of 100000000000 Jack Thompson after his comments (which I just saw on the internet, no fox here) about the massacare, and I would call him an ar$£h0le if it was something I could live without. Firstly as many will be thinking, he just used the issue as a way to spread his nonsense and lies about. I mean he talks about a German shoot out saying the shooter dressed like a guy from counter strike just cause he dressed in black. So are these guys fans of SOCOM Navy Seals then?

      http://static.howstuffworks.com/gif/navy-seal-4.jpg

      I've been playing Video games for all my life and I remember one of the first games I played was Doom at the age of 5. Am I a violent person? No. Infact I can tell you from first hand experiance that "muder simulations" make s you calmer, not more violent. I have a big collection of violent games, so if I started a shoot out, and police raided my house, would Jack hompson say it's Half Life, Quake, Doom, and the Ships fault, or something like abuse be the motive or something sensible like that?

      Now sadly companies like EA and Rockstar are going to suffer cause of this smeg head (yeah we could live with out them!) due to sales of parents not buying them for kids who are resonsible and stable in the head. A solotuin I have (but I'm a wee tiny voice to them) is putting a disclaimer in games saying "Don't do what you do in this game. If you start a shooting it's not our fault. just "kill" the enemies in the game, not anyone in real life. we don't condom real life violance." or something like that. Sure it's annoying and I don't know how that would stand on the legal side, but it atleast helps distance the game away from future violance.

      Now lets see how easy it is to do a Jack Thomspon, OBVIOUSLY C&C Red Alert is to be blamed for Hitlers Actions for starting WW2, after all, he controlled his real life Soviet army to invaid Allied nations, but he knew the chronosphere didnt exsist, but sadly he didn't have an Iron curtain, and the real soviets were fighting him as well.

      The Iranian President got is hands on an advance copy of STALKER as that's why he's dealing with Nuclear power, so he can hunt down real monsters\zombies caused by an nuclear "accident". See, I can be the next Jack Thompson.

      Doom couldn't of trained the Colombine duo as there is no pipe bombs (or automatic guns bar a chaingun and plasma rifle, but those weren't in colmbine)in doom, and for the VA massacare, which game do you chain doors closed? normally people open chained doors in games!

      The problem isn't games, Games don't kill people, Duke Nukem isn't going to burst through my screen and kill me while saying "It's time to kick ass and Chew Bubble gum! But I'm all out of gum." Nor is the master chief going to jump out you and stick a plasma grenade on you and run away.

      Sorry for the rant but as the title says, this has just got to stop (both shootings and the idiots like JT).

      Again My thoughts are with the families of the victems of the Virgina tech and I hope the survivors can recover ok after their ordeal.

      p.s. Found this, an interesting read.

    • Caboose for First Minster of Scotland

      12 years ago

      Scottland

      Hi again. Well for those on my friends list you may of noticed my primary pic has been changed. Now people who have read my posts on the forums will know I;m a)a Red team fa and b) A Grif fan. This is still the case. This pic is about something else.

      You see next month, the Scottish Elections are onand it's often on the news and really, I don't understand or care about politics, as long as we don't turn into nazis or anything else stupid and evil then I don't really care much who runs our country. However, I see scottish polotics a bit fooked up, so much that, well my pic says it all, Caboose would be an ideal canidate. I won't go into Socttish polotics too much as that would bore alot of people, lets just say either way, quiet a few scots lose, and the rest gets unfair treatment in their favour (which is already the case). But that's for another subject which I won't go into, ever, as I assume alot of people are just as interested in Scottish polotics as I am.

      The Caboose pic was hard to do but it still only ook about 10-15 minutesto make. I only needed a decent pic of caboose, which was hard to find anI ended up having to steal one from episode 91, when he's talking to sheila, get rid of the background from that scene, get a saltire (the scottish flag) made and copy and paste Cabooses pic over the flag. It's very hard to do with paint, which is the best paint program I have avaliable. I choose caboose or the pic cause he was the closest character to having the most suitable colour for the flag (the original idea was to paint the white cross on him too, but I changed my idea when I got the caboose pic), andplus it does say alot about Socttish polotics if Caboose can't make scotland any worse as first minster of Scotland.

      It doing this does make me wonder, Who, out of the RVB characters would be perfect for national flags. I mean I could of done Grif or his sister on the other Scottish flag, but the saltire was easier to draw. The American flag would be interesting as you could have either caboose, sarge or the ghost of Church (or the white guy from the full circle) in it,same with the Union Jack (the British Flag).

      In other news, I've tried watching the other Rooster teeth shows. Strangerhood I just can't get into, not my kind of thing, but PANICS was brilliant, sorta RvB with a diffrence. Loved the bit in the last episode where Bravo 3 thinks Franks guess throgh and acts apon it.

      Anyway it's been slow for me since my last journal since I've not done much since I'm on holiday, and it's not been a weekend so I've not been to wortk either, just been sitting here, playing games, chatting to people online, as my real friends are either too busy, or live too far away to reallymeet up with.

      Anyway see you guys (and gals) in the forums

    • Hello All

      12 years ago

      Scottland

      Hi all my first log since joining this site, 10-20 minutes ago (at the time of typing). Now normally I don't bother with journals, but I can view everyone,s should I chooce to do so and it's not fair on those who want to view mine and get nothing. This is my first so I apologize if it seems like caboose has written it, I know even after a few jorunals, It may still seem like that, but that's me.

      Anyway, About me, well I've gave a quick wee brief in my profile so feel free to look at that. A few things though, I wanted to say this, but didn't have room for it, I don't have a strong, Scottish Highland accent, and I some people (both Scottish and non scottish, like Polish) have said I don't have a Scottish accent. But I don't care, I'm still me.

      Also, I could only say "sales ass" due to running out of space again, I know some will probably find it funny hence why I kept it in, but to clear stuff up, it should say sales Assistant (and if I had even more room I would of gone in depth to the type of shop I work in but that doesn't really matter).

      So I'm from Soctland's biggest city, Glasgow, I support the Mighty Glasgow Ranger s( to help not confuse things, normally I would just say Rangers, but I'm mostly in an enviroment when they wouldn't assume I mean the New York rangers.) and to anyone who know anything about scottish football while with half a brain, or to anyone who are stupid enough to read Scottish newspapers, I'm not a bigot.

      As said in my profile (and above) I am a student studying computing in College, and a part time sales assistant in one of the last remaining family owned in Scotland (my family don't own it incase anyone is wondering). I After College, I hope to go to University to study Computer Games Technology, so I can then go and work in the computer games industry (have been thinking about doing the programming side to it) so I can pay back the industry which has given me alot of intertainment.

      I love computer games. I would say I'm most;y a PC gamer, but I do own a 360 (and I had a ps2 before hand). I probably won't go for the PS3, and I'm just discovering the joy of Halo, Thanks to Red V Blue getting me into it, but I can't play Halo on my pc due to sound problems with my new shinny vista computer. I'm also interested in Computers, have a decent knowladge on them, but obviously still have alot to learn about them.

      Lastly, I'll metion that my gamer tag is a combination of my name, and my homeland,. not me misspelling Scotland (Just for the people who avn't clocked on to it, I know I wouldn't of if I wasn't me), and my favourite RvB character is Grif, just cause he's funny, and how the other reds treat him, ecspecially Sarge, but they are all great. I watced all of the episodes opened to the public (episodes 1-92 at the time of writing) i the space of 3 days, exluding trailers and PSAs.

      Well the rest about me isn't really important and this is looking like it's going to be a very long journal, when I'm only doing this to be fair, and a quick wee (yeah right) brief about me. I hope I have a good time here, and it'll be a pleasure meeting everyone. Again sorry if it seems like caboose has written this. Any and all pointers are welcome. Thanks for reading.

      Saying that, Blue are still a pretty good team, and as I said in my first post in the red board, I would normally pick Blue in a blue v other colour senario, but in RvB, Red ended up my favourite due to the characters combo adn I feel they get the bigger laughs (again, Blues can be really funny at times too)

      Caboose was just brilliant for my pic idea (which changed slightly form the original plan but is still good).

      A few ways,I think. A bit beyond my knowladge but I should be able to help I think

      You could get a memory unit, and a reader for it for the pc, and use the memory unit to transport stuff that way (Not tried this, someone will have to check it out to see if ti'll help, don't know of any unit readers, I use a HDD)

      Or if like me, connect your 360 wirelessly to the modem, as well as your pc, and both the pc and 360 should be able to connect to each other too (probably the ost expensive option, and maybe the slowest). I've tried it for a few minutes but I was lagging alot connecting to my computer, but I think I know why, and may be better in your experiance if you try.

      Now the last one, I don't know if it'll work at all with the 360, but something similar worked with the ps2. try connecting the 360 to the pc by eithernet cable, and the same for pc to modem. You should be able to bridge the connection so you can still connect to the internet via the pc, and the pc and 360 should be able to talk to each other. Can't say for sure if it'll work, but I think it's probably a slightly more complex, wired but cheaper version of the above. Can't say how to do this but see below for a way to find out. And Youll need 2 eithernet sockets on your pc (I'm sure you can buy cards which can give you more eithernet sockets in computer shops).

      Try asking about it at here. Your xbox live gametag should allow you to log in (as it's the offical forums), but I think atleast the last 2 will work.

      Hope these help.

      Of course, anyone who knows better can jump right in.
