Jan 25th 2010 10:15PM May...dammit. The Boston Marathon is in April, my 9 year old Fitsense FS-1 just broke and I the Garmin 405 is just too damn big.

Lousy timing.

This looks so much better than anything else out there.

I will definitely be keeping my eye on this one.

Jun 3rd 2009 4:18PM Does anyone else find the PlaystationNetwork Store...confusing.

You used to be able to go there and see ALL demos, PSOne games, PSP games, etc.

Now, all I get is one page and not a complete list. Did they remove this from the web and is it only available from a PSP or PS3?

I can't find FF7 anywhere on there.

Breakfast Topic: Playing at work {WoW}

Dec 17th 2008 12:55PM Most companies have their firewalls locked down so it's very difficult to play games that need certain ports open. Some companies have a SOCKS proxy running so you can use something like SOCKSCap to tunnel out or they allow a user to SSH out.

At one job, I was curious to see if WoW could be tunneled. I set up an SSH connection to my home linux server. I used SOCKCap to SOCKSify the WoW connection. Sure enough, it worked.

My laptop, however, wasn't good enough to run WoW so, while an interesting experiment, it wasn't going to work for me.

I made the mistake of telling some of the other guys I played WoW with and then next thing I know, getting personal email (which I did over SSH) got real slow.

Turns out several of them would bring up WoW and run auctions or farm at various points. One guy would farm an herb, log out, log back in a certain time later (just before it would respawn), farm again, and repeat.

One guy was trying to become #1 in PvP and it wasn't uncommon to see him in his Lab Closet space jumping back and forth between imaging and installing Solaris servers and PvP'ing on a Desktop.

They had it down to a science and were even able to use Remote Desktop to connect to the WoW machine in the office (which then connected out) to run auctions.....

Thankfully, my laptop limitations kept me from falling into that trap.

Production Tesla Roadster gets glorious hands-on: stifle your envy, please {Engadget}

Nov 24th 2008 8:55PM This is a great car and a great concept. The only thing I would change right now is the cockpit entry. You can already see scratches on the side of the well where the driver has to step over the side of the well to get in the car.

That aside, I hope this gets real affordable, real fast!

Breakfast Topic: Missed that one {WoW}

Aug 7th 2008 9:54AM I think I've forgotten most of the instances I haven't or never completed:

Never completed:
- Uldaman
- Scholomance
- Stratholme
- Hellfire Pennisula
- Gnomeregan

Never had a chance to do:
- Blackwing Lair
- Onyxia
- Scarlett Monastery
- Underbog
- Slave Pens
- Steamvault

The list goes on.

I had never done LBRS/UBRS until recently. I have a level 70 hunter and missed the window with my guild to finish the Onyxia quest chain. I had worked my way all the way up to the Drakefire Amulet and most of the guild was already on to Onyxia. I could never get anyone to help me run through so I left it alone...for 10 levels!

Last week, several mid-60s and I ran both LBRS and UBRS in about 90 minutes and I completed the quest.

Now I figure I'll wait until I'm level 80 and I can solo Onyxia!
