Range Report

May 10th, 2013 · No Comments · Personal

So this trip to the range was all sorts of fucked up – but I’ll get to that. First, let’s discuss the new scope rings, which I specified in my previous after action report would be replacing the Leupold rings I found to be highly incompatible with my scope/rifle setup, not to mention just bad […]

Help! Broken folder redirection in WordPress 3.1

February 24th, 2011 · 3 Comments · Personal

Update: I’ve changed my URL redirect to point to the default Blade Edge domain for now until I have more time to take this on after GDC, so the redirect loop isn’t reproducible anymore for the time being. Any of my WordPress guru readers want to lend me a hand real quick? Here’s the deal […]

Flight Log – VATSIM is a go

August 30th, 2010 · 2 Comments · Gaming

My helicopter flight around Manhattan was done without the built-in simulator ATC because it wasn’t properly recognizing that I was in a helicopter. I said at the time I didn’t want to bother with VATSIM, but I quickly changed my mind when I realized I would end up using it sooner or later – so […]

Desktop goes KABLOOIE!!

March 16th, 2010 · No Comments · Personal

If the title of this post looks familiar, that’s because back at the start of the month I posted about my old laptop going belly-up. Well now it seems to have happened to my desktop. No idea what could have caused it, other than perhaps a surge or something related to the outage we had […]

Laptop goes KABLOOIE!!

March 3rd, 2010 · 1 Comment · Personal

So, the Windows 7 Release Candidate that I’ve had installed on my old laptop for the past few months to try out W7 to see if I liked it (I did – have it on my desktop now) expired at the start of this week, which means that the computer will shut down every 2 […]

I thought I had planned for everything…

January 25th, 2010 · No Comments · Gaming

in 1999, I got Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six (N64) for Christmas. I had played it on the PC – or at least tried to being that back then my gaming rig was actually the family PC and wasn’t really built for gaming much at all. So through the choppy frame rates I got an idea […]

Epic Bike Fail

June 2nd, 2009 · 2 Comments · Personal

So about two weeks ago my friend Andrew came over to help me change my bike oil and replace my oil filter. It wasn’t anything difficult, but I wasn’t 100% sure I knew what I was doing. The process was quick and painless, the only hindrance being that I needed to remove my left fairing […]

No luck on the PS3 HDD upgrade

January 24th, 2009 · 8 Comments · Personal

Right now the failure boils down to one of two things. Either I should have never formatted the drive from its factory state or My PS3 model just isn’t built for HDD upgrades I don’t like thinking either of them are true but it has to be one or the other. Back when I first […]

Had enough of Tomb Raider: Underworld

January 16th, 2009 · No Comments · Gaming

Well I wasn’t impressed with Underworld much besides the visual quality of the game. Underworld is stunning in its visual detail and lighting and overall environmental design. If I could just watch the whole game being played I would – I’d pop the popcorn and sit back to watch the story unfold in the various […]

Another HDD bites the dust

January 11th, 2009 · 1 Comment · Personal

Well,  it seems my WD Raptor 150GB drive has up and died on me. I took a 2 hour nap today and when I woke up I found my computer had restarted itself for some reason and the boot screen greeted me with the message “Primary H.D.D. Not Found!”. Well crap. I had to run […]
