I just found out there is a campaign in the UK to get American Idiot to the top of the charts with a certain American Idiot about to visit.   I also like the massive orange baby blimp in a diaper with an iphone that will be flying around :)

Every now and then I'd get some gaming nostalgia, but this is close to 30 years ago.  A game I played in primary school on Apple II computers I believe.  Initially I remembered the idea of it, and while searching for it, I found MANY other people who had found memories and were also looking at various times.  It was kinda cool to be a part of that.  Then I finally found the name.

Raft Away River



Then recently I thought about how there are websites where you can play old games in your browser.  After a quick search I had it working!

So much nostalgia!  At first I was a bit disorganised, but had another go and finished it on the basic difficulty.  There was once a time I had memorised all the commands and what they did :)  This might have been one of the first games I really enjoyed.  You have 2-6 players and randomly get 2 out of 4 items.  You need to communicate and plan to not all die :)    It is a basic game as its designed for kids as edutainment, but great trip down memory lane.

Now if only I could find this 2d platformer game we also played around the same time. I have a vague memory what it looked like .. its not much to go on

Screw Trump, Screw Putin, good riddance to Russia.  They got this far because they were given the easiest group.  They they beat Spain which I was ok with but they did it mainly by bunkering down.  Glad Croatia beat them.

  • Colombia (0)
  • England (1)
  • Belgium (0)
  • Mexico (0)
  • Croatia (0)
  • Portugal (0)
  • Denmark (0)
  • Sweden (0)
  • Switzerland (0)
  • Japan (0)
  • Argentina (2)
  • France (1)
  • Uruguay (2)
  • Brazil (5)
  • Spain (1)
  • Russia (0)

All the teams left are playing well and I won't be upset if they win.  Croatia is probably the worse team left at this point.

I'm getting towards a new normal.  I saw a nurse on Friday and she was very happy with what she saw.  At times I still get some pain, but its mainly now if I forget pills often enough.

On a different matter and something annoying, my main computer won't turn on.  It had a long beep, then 3 short beeps.  Over the last month it hasn't really been used much apart from idling for a few days earning some cards.  This really annoys me.  Its a big heavy bastard to move so I'll have to be careful I don't hurt myself when I move it.

Yesterday on a frustrating/lighter side of things, we got a phone call about 8:45am. I expected it to be the mother in law.  It was some guy asking for my wife.  She got breakfast for the kids, then went for a nap.  I woke her up (she'd slept through an alarm) and she asked if it was her mother.  Turns out it was her work and she was meant to be there at 8am and they were thinking WTF?  She thought she was starting 7pm.  She is in a rush to get out the door, and now I've got to unexpectedly look after the kids by myself all day on a wet cold wintery day with not much food around.  We got through the day, made a big mess of the lounge, and I introduced my 4 year old to plants vs zombies.  She was a bit fan of the venus fly trap, and got annoyed if I didn't put it in the roster :)

Hi, there

Is there anywhere that describes what all the ship stats do, ex. how shields work, how evasion works, what towers are, and so on...the help in the game doesnt describe what these things are and the wiki has no additional information.

Thanks

I saw kasferatu saying he wants a Belgium England final where Belgium wins.  I really hope Russia lose. I donít trust them and as they say, when someone who has played an entire game is out sprinting someone who just got into the game itís not a good look. And they are only ranked 70 in the world.

Two really good games today.  Uruguay was, unfortunately, without out a main player and it showed.  While they threatened a bunch, they couldn't get a goal in without him.  I personally am glad to see Suarez out of the tournament, I hope this is the last time I have to see him in the WC.

Brazil vs Belgium was awesome.  Great game, with a lot of good attacks and scoring.  Not sure that the best team won as Brazil was really good and Belgium had some tremendous saves to keep them in the game.  Kudos to Belgium for pulling it out.

  • Colombia (0)
  • England (1)
  • Belgium (0)
  • Mexico (0)
  • Croatia (0)
  • Portugal (0)
  • Denmark (0)
  • Sweden (0)
  • Switzerland (0)
  • Japan (0)
  • Argentina (2)
  • France (1)
  • Uruguay (2)
  • Brazil (5)
  • Spain (1)
  • Russia (0)

I don't expect tomorrow's games to be as good.  Russia plays an ugly game, mainly because they are not that good.  Sweden is a good team, but they don't play a fun game.  I expect Croatia and England to move on tomorrow.
