02:58 < icculus> suck it down, all you linux bitches!
----------------------------------------------------------------------
My DSL has been down so much lately, I finally gave up and called MSN
(not joking, they were the default isp through qwest).
When I talked to them, they told me I had been upgraded to being
handled by qwest support. Which is great, I thought. Qwest suport
was actually really helpful, and ordered me a new DSL modem/gateway
thinger. They said it would get here on wednesday, and they suggested
I look on ebay for a cisco dsl modem, since none of these actiontec
modems were worth their salt.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
On a side note, it seems like every time I try to update the lgfaq,
subversion breaks in some new, even more interesting way. Finger
icculus for more on that.

Impressive video game moments #136:
I got a game for my nokia 3650 that uses the camera to simulate
a gyroscope, it takes pictures continuously. It uses this information
to determine if you have tilted the phone. So the game itself is one
of those cheesy tilt the slab with the ball to navigate the maze,
without dropping the ball into any of the holes.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

16:27 <@Briareos> it is now apparent that the nintendo ds exists for
  no other reason than to provide yet another platform
to rerelease all the nintendo franchises on
16:29 <@Briareos> <nintendo> the largest problem in games today is
  disorientation
16:29 <@Briareos> <nintendo> therefore we introduce the ds, which has
  a map on all the time
16:29 <@Briareos> <nintendo> to avoid disorientation
16:29 <@Briareos> <nintendo> which is... uh...
16:29 <@Briareos> <nintendo> a big problem
----------------------------------------------------------------------

21:29 <+zakk> icculus__: I think I'll listen to this uh,, sometime I'm
  not within earshot of my girlfriend
21:29 < icculus__> I said it was rap, which means by default it's
  demeaning to women!
----------------------------------------------------------------------

20:05 < jvalenzu> camera phones seem handy when you can't remember a
  girl's face but you have her number
20:05 < jvalenzu> so for habitual alchoholics it must be awesome
20:06 < zakk> I have a picture of my girlfriend as my wallpaper on my
  phone
20:06 <@Briareos> loooser

Got a washington state drivers license !!!11

I think my box is overheating, since I solved the general lockups
with the acpi stuff I wrote out in the lgfaq, and when I touch my
heatsinks they feel waaaaay too warm.
Going to have to get a new case if I can at some point :|
The one I want is really expensive though, it should help a fair bit.
I think my video card really needs active cooling, at least when it is
rendering OGL it seems to get too hot, though I have only encountered
one lock up/reboot which is obviously due to the video card.

Current Games:
Ico: I can see that prince of persia was obviously inspired by ico.

XIII:
Worst ending ever.
(it was a "To be continued")

Devil May Cry: It's like Castlevania SoTN gone 3D and Resident Evil-ized.
A bit frustrating with the lack of save points though :/

Tenchu 3:
Fun, yet frustrating, review/fimp coming to curmudgeongamer soon.

Simpsons Hit and Run
Currently at The Woman's house, all progress on hold
