Black and White

Went through my gaming bundle this weekend and guess what I’ve found – Black and White. The original. Not Pokemon, but a game so simple as it was hard. In this game, you play a god (cow god, wolf god, monkey god).
It makes you ask yourself – Who do you want to be? Do you want to be good? Do you want to rule your people with love, care and gentle pushes? Even if they sometimes make annoying requests at you – like : Find my cat…
Or do you want to be evil? Pure evil. Destroy any un-believer with a thunder strike. Start a war with a neighbor. Destroy villages to assert your power.

I went with the cow (of course). A gentle mammal, known for her good milk and massive tits ūüôā
Very soon, annoyed with my people, I wished I went with the war wolf. He looked so much cooler. But is cool what matters? I just did not want to be weak and taken advantage of by those lousy villagers. So, I started burning down a tree here and there in my annoyance and the villagers wondered at my powers and their admiration grew. They sang songs about me and how gentle and caring I was. And then I was invaded by a brute next door and I lost all my villages.
The moral of the story: if you want to be annihilated by a mad dog, be nice and quiet. If you want to rule, step up and bite the bullet. It can’t be THAT hard.
I think this approach will suit me in business more than in my personal life. Which is good. ‘Cause currently there is no personal life to speak of… Grrr.

Anyone remember the 2002 game called RoadRash?

I used to spend hours playing this game! I got real good too! I nearly thought I could become a motorbike racer when I grew up but whoops, I realized I was already grown up so no go!

For those who want to give it a go, you can download it for free from this link:

Sexiest Animated Character Ever!

I have been looking for a game to play for a while and I have been looking at the Final Fantasy options as the storyline is always good and there is always a hot guy in the mix. I came across Final Fantasy Dirge of Cerberus and …. wow! This guy looks like my ideal man! Drooool!
Hint: the guy I’m talking about is not Cloud.

Fractals

“I find the ideas in the fractals, both as a body of knowledge and as a metaphor, an incredibly important way of looking at the world.” ¬†–¬†Vice President and Nobel Laureate Al Gore,¬†New York Times, Wednesday, June 21, 2000, discussing some of the “big think” questions that intrigue him.

A fractal is a symetrical compositions of the same object. Repeated over and over again, close to infinity. It contains smaller and smaller copies of itself, either going inward or outward, shrinking from view or expanding to infinity.

Poetry for Nerds

T’was the Internet Night Before Christmas

‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the Net,
There were hacker’s a surfing. Nerds? Yeah, you bet.
The e-mails were stacked by the modem with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there.

Snowman
The newbies were nestled all snug by their screens,
While visions of Java danced in their dreams.
My wife on the sofa and me with a snack,
We just settled down at my rig (it’s a Mac).

When out in the Web there arose such a clatter,
I jumped to the site to see what was the matter.
To a new page my Mac flew like a flash,
Then made a slight gurgle. It started to crash!!

I gasped at the thought and started to grouse,
Then turned my head sideways and clicked on my mouse.
When what to my wondering eyes should appear,
My Mac jumped to a page that wasn’t quite clear.

When the image resolved, so bright and so quick,
I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick!
More rapid than mainframes, more graphics they came,
Then Nick glanced toward my screen, my Mac called them by name;

“Now Compaq! Now Acer!”, my speaker did reel;
“On Apple! On Gateway!” Santa started to squeal!
“Jump onto the circuits! And into the chip!
Now speed it up! Speed it up! Make this thing hip!”

The screen gave a flicker, he was into my “Ram”,
Then into my room rose a full hologram!
He was dressed in all red, from his head to his shoes,
Which were black (the white socks he really should lose).

He pulled out some discs he had stored in his backpack.
Santa looked like a dude who was rarin’ to hack!
His eyes, how they twinkled! His glasses, how techno!
This ain’t the same Santa that I used to know!

With a wink of his eye and a nod of his head,
Santa soon let me know I had nothing to dread.
He spoke not a word, gave my Mac a quick poke,
And accessed my C drive with only a stroke.

He defragged my hard drive, and added a “Dimm”,
Then threw in some cool games, just on a whim!
He worked without noise, his fingers they flew!
He distorted some pictures with Kai’s Power Goo!

He updated Office, Excel and Quicken,
Then added a screensaver with a red clucking chicken!
My eyes widened a bit, my mouth stood agape,
As he added the latest version of Netscape.

The drive gave a whirl, as if it were pleased,
St. Nick coyly smiled, the computer appeased.
Then placing his finger on the bridge of his nose,
Santa turned into nothing but ones and zeros!

He flew back into my screen and through my uplink,
Back into the net with barely a blink.
But I heard his sweet voice as he flew from my sight,
“Happy surfing to all, and to all a good byte!”
