Well, this weekend was an experience. I was the host of "LANtastic ’99," [link removed] a LAN party [link removed] of 7 people and their computers in my house. The activities started at 8 am and ended at 9 PM, and we ONLY played Quake! Needless to say, we all had a great time and the people from work are talking about a bigger and better one in about a month. I cannot wait for it! In a couple of days, I will have the pictures posted on "LANtastic ’99’s" [Continue Reading]
Well, I just checked out the Newsbot site and found that v6.4 was released on 25MAR99. If ya like to download files from Newsgroups, give Newsbot a try!
Well, even though I was not expecting too much from upgrading from a cheap no name brand 56k modem to a USR one, I was pleasantly surprised to find that my ping time was cut drastically from around 500-600 to 150-250. A major improvement, if you ask me. It kind of just saved me a whole bunch of money from not having to buy a ISDN modem. 🙂 I have not updated the news lately, mainly because there has been nothing happening. Now that I can actually surf the net [Continue Reading]
HAPPY EASTER! (early) The Easter Bunny arrived in town! Hop on over to the Photo’s Page to look at my latest encounter. Microsoft released Internet Explorer 5 yesterday.
I traveled with a friend down to a large computer show today and found so many bargains that my brain locked up and I could not decide what to plunk my money on first. Needless to say, I was rather skeptical about buying parts off of a wood table, so I ended up at Fry’s Electronics. Not the best deals (compared to the computer show), but some good ones regardless.
I found out that on 09MAR1999, Blizzard released a new patch for Starcraft/Brood War v1.5. I worked on putting together some patches for some of the games that I do not have. Here is what I came up with today: I added The 3DO Company to the Patches Index [link removed] Page. 21 Games/12 Patches Listed. I added Access Software to the Patches Index [link removed] Page. 10 Games/6 Patches Listed. I added Blizzard Entertainment to the Patches Index [link removed] Page. 6 Games/6 Patches Listed. I added Tsunami Media [Continue Reading]
I found out that on 22FEB1999, ICQ99a was released. Where have I been? If you want to make some new contacts, or keep in touch with some old ones, ICQ is the way to go…
I decided on adding a Patches Index [link removed] page today. This will soon include ALL of the patches I can find available today. It is going to take much work, but I think it will become a valuable resource if I can keep up with it. I am thinking about making it so the patches are listed by Company and not just alphabetical. Right now it only includes the same information as on my previous Game Patches [link removed] page.
After much thought, I decided to go out and get some new games. I have not purchased any for quite sometime now. Check out the Games Listings for the entire collection. I also worked on making all of the pages look pretty much the same. Some may still be a little out of whack, but they are starting to look pretty good. I added the neon bar between crap and on top of all pages. Cool, huh? As you probably may have known for awhile now, DirectX 6.1 is out [Continue Reading]
I just checked up on the Speed Running Demo’s [link removed] at PlanetQuake [link removed] to find out that Tangent has updated the page! Quite a few demo’s were released. Go check it out. I will have some more demo’s as soon as Reality relaxes its grasp. I have been trying really hard to make City1 @ :59, but it seems rather difficult. I tried ALL last night. To my disappointment, I was only able to make a 100.2. Just not good enough. I am not giving up, though!
