    3DS SSF4 Rant

    So I thought I'd get in a few quick online matches today and every singal one of my opponents quits in the middle of the match because they are losing. Why the fuck even play the game online if your going to get pissed and quit if your losing? Does this happen to any one else? If it does how does it make you feel?

    Hackintosh

    I recently purchased a Dell mini 10v and today I hackintoshed it. Currently I'm only booting OSX but would like to eventually dual boot Windows 7 or XP.

    I found a sweet little guide online that helped me out a lot. If any one is interested in doing a really easy hackintosh the 10v is as easy as it gets for the most part.

    Here is a pic of it. [​IMG]

    I'm kind of liking OSX and will definitely reconsider getting a real Mac some time. :lol:

    Tomy Tomytronic 3D SkyFighters

    So this past weekend Another World had posted a blog about a rare thrift shop find, a Galaxian table top lcd game from the 80's. This post in peticular took me back to my youth and the yearning to play a game that I could no longer remeber the title of let alone the manufacturer. With a little help from AW and some searching I was not only able to find the name of my game but also an auction on ebay. I am happy to say that as of tonight the game is mine and on its way to my hands.

    As soon as I recieve it I'll post up some pictures for all to see, until then here is a Link to the ended auction with a few pics of the handheld and some screens. Tomy was ahead of its time with these games.

    Oh and Another World, thanks for the help provided.

    My New Dell Laptop

    So in a previous blog I posted I was getting a new laptop to replace my ailing 11 year old Dell desktop. I ordered it last Friday and damn that was some fast shipping as it showed up on my doorstep yesterday. I just wanted to post a few pics for any one interested.

    moe money

    So back in the summer/fall of '08 when the stock market started to tank not even the company I work for was immune. I watched as it dropped from an average of between 18 and 19 dollars to around $5.50. me being the future thinking person that I am knew it would rebound hard relatively quickly, I took out a loan from my 401k and invested it in some stock in my company. I'm not going to go into all the details but I just sold some of it for a nice sum of 10,000 dollars and just got the check in the mail this morning. Off to the bank I go. $$$ :yay:

    My bonus update

    Got my bonus Friday morning and it was pretty much spot on for how much I thought I would be getting. 1,535.67$! I went on new egg and picked up This Dell laptop. I was able to get a 15% discount through work and snagged it for 748$. I should be getting it on Monday or Tuesday next week. :yay:

    On another note it was so windy where I live on Friday. We had gusts up to 50 mph. I had woke up and let my dogs go out and there were shingles laying all over my yard, about 15-20 total. I looked up and there were none missing off my back roof so I went out front and saw that that's where they had come from. I guess I know where some of the remainder of my bonus is going. :angry2:

    impromptu 3 day weekend

    Well where I work we get kinda slow in the begining of the year and sometimes we get called off and told to stay home for lack of work. Just got such a call just moments ago. I could use the money like everyone else but I'm not going to complain about an extra day off from work. Now I can continue to staighten up my computer room.

When our righteous seek to holds us down I temp me fellow man not be holden down. We are all created equally and so should are views be. If you feel the same as me then post them shits up for all to see.

    In lamens terms post up your grievenses with your governments if your not too timid.

    I'll post mine first.

    Keep your hands out of my wallet and leave me alone SO I can take care of me and my own.

    I bought this unit on day one. The case came from a flea market a few years later (the seller used to own a mom and pop video rental shop but had to shut down)and I gave the VB that was in it to my nephew as a gift (which he then gave back to me for some reason so I ended up selling that unit on ebay for a tidy sum).

    This unit is in such prestine shape thanks to the hard plastic case. The only thing I would love to have too accompany it is a flash cart. Some day maybe...

    Uh... I hear VB Wario Land calling me.


    Edit: I think I'll take it out and show my son it this weekend, He's never seen it.
