Evac…

Thursday, December 31st, 2009

Well due to fires Furbag and I have evacuated to the other side of town while awaiting the champion efforts of the CFA. Unfortunately I have not had either the money or the time to prepare with water tanks this first year. So my fire plan’s been evacuation. I’ve learnt before all but human and Furbag life is replaceable.

I don’t envy the CFA members putting their best efforts in, and I hope there are only minor injuries while they take on the fires in Mt Clear & Mt Helen. May the Cosmos be with them.

Just Work…

Today was a hard day at work! I spent the day driving to Geelong & Lorne for the day’s work. Fuck my days can be hard… 😉

Late Spring Cleaning…

Monday, December 28th, 2009

Part of yesterday and today’s been allocated to those frustrating, annoying tasks that get put on the back burner for so long they become bigger than Ben Hur in the Mind. Yesterday morning and this afternoon were spent sorting through and testing the plethora of Passwords that we end up for systems over the years, and also assessing another horde of old hardware of which I’ve managed to relieve myself of half.

Day of the Furbag…

Friday, December 25th, 2009

I generally find today and the following few frustrating for the hypocrisy. When it takes a commercialized “holiday” to “bring families together” it seems we as a society are generally lacking. However, I’m hosting the members today, so I’m treating today as the tribal gathering to lay offerings to the ancient hunting deity Furbag. Apparently however, my usual household “decorations” are unfitting, and must be discretely placed out of sight… *sigh*

Anyway such is the way of some things. The Runes indicate that the Favour of Furbag should be high at the moment and the weather appears mild.

Through the Wall…

Finally Kicked Zathrian’s arse! Making progress through Dragon Age again…

An end in sight, but over the Horizon…

I need to finish at least 2 games before I can buy Mass Effect 2. So at the moment I’m rotating between Dead Space and Dragon Age. Dead Space scored the hit for today, I’m fighting the Leviathan in Chapter 6 at the moment. Meanwhile, in Dragon Age I’m hopefully just about to finish off the Danish Elves area, just run into a little snag.

An upgrade at no cost…

Changed the connection for my Xbox 360 over to HDMI today. Somewhat surprised by the difference. I’d thought it was pretty good on the standard Component Cable. However, it’s sharper, richer and no noticeable sound difference (which I’d expected). It’s going to stay that way now.

Two in one equals half…

I went to see Avatar last night, very PRETTY, but story predictably thin. The game could be fun, but rental only I think. Looks and sounds fantastic though, so if I saw it on Blue-Ray cheap enough I’d buy it.

On the Lamb…

Furbag boycotted curfew last night, and I’m not a happy camper about it. Unfortunately with the current Food War (i.e. the current food strike), sending her to bed without supper is hardly punishment: So stalemated!

Space Opera…

Although I’m unlikely to ever pay a subscription for a game again after the travesty that was SWG Online post “upgrade”, Star Trek Online is at the very least interesting. Also, Eclipse Phase seems very interesting too! I’ll be watching both for a while to see what eventuates.
