Update May 12, 2004: After originally posting my AMD and Intel Rant on July 30, 2002, many items touched on have become extremely out of date. I decided to take a “second look” at what both AMD and Intel has accomplished recently and hopefully provide a vision for the future. Read more… Why no AMD? Some people have asked me, “Even though you have a few computers, why are NONE of them AMD based?!?” Simple. I do not like AMD. If you feel you cannot handle what is contained in this [Continue Reading]

Introduction Being as how I have openly exposed my life and my computer knowledge to others freely on, it seems that their is always somebody that feels they are the chosen one to insist their point of view is correct. Needless to say, most of the time, they are wrong. This seems to disturb me in more ways than one. As I begin, keep in mind that I enjoy reading other opinions as long as they are presented in a clear manner. Someone that feels compelled to voice their opinion to a [Continue Reading]

What is the price of fame? Many late nights sitting at a keyboard, attempting to get things just right… The end result? Many questions, comments, and feedback attached with a flood of opinions. Most of the time, constructive and kind, but not all of the time. How did it all start? After a six year stretch in the US Navy, I had the clothes on my back and the desire to get my butt in a house within six months. I did it in five. Regardless, my apartment was very empty and [Continue Reading]

Console or Computer? Gaming has been in my blood since the first time I played PONG at a friends house. Was it fate that PONG debuted the same year I was born? I think so. My first gaming system was a Atari 2600. I truly enjoyed all of the blocky sprites and the genuinely uncomfortable smash-the-corner-in-to-the-palm-of-your-hand one button black joysticks that came with the system. Many hours were spent in front of the TV set, playing mindless hand-eye coordination games. Those were the days… My first “true love” has to be the Commodore [Continue Reading]

Introduction As far as opinions go, this is a big one for me. Computers are tools, and if used properly, they have unlimited potential! Their is nothing that you cannot accomplish with a little thought and some persistence as far as programming is concerned. Now comes spam. Spam probably began at the same time the e-mail, or “Simple Text Messages” started being sent via wire! Spam, has its simple definition for me: “Any message sent to me that I did not ask for, don’t care about and/or does not even apply to me.” [Continue Reading]

Monday, November 25, 2007 @ 11:15 AM PST It has been a long time since I have posted a “Quick Rant“, or any news for that matter, so here it goes: Unfortunately, Massive Entertainment AB does not provide a direct contact for “support” and, as a result, I am going to rant here. A little less than a month ago, I purchased World in Conflict and was extremely pleased with it (and still am). However, a particular issue has compelled me to write this. I have progressed about halfway through [Continue Reading]
