Google Fight

January 11th, 2007 | Posted by pftq in Blabberbox | #

        Here’s a funny site I just came across.   Basically it lets you enter two search phrases to compare and a little animation plays as if the two are duking it out.   The winner is the search phrase that gets the most hits on Google.   Also a nice way to see what site is more popular :P

        Example: Llama VS Potato

        Nooooooooo! The potato won! :O

Some Random Story

January 7th, 2007 | Posted by pftq in Stories | #
         This is a true story...

         So there was a short lil' guy named Bob and this tiny little  kit-cat named Tom.   Tom was hungry one day and Bob didn't have any  water.   Tom begged for food, but Bob said  no so the tiny cat scratched him.   Bob tried to call for help, but accidentally swallowed his hat.

         A huge ugly dog named Jack came along, but his real name was Bob.   Bob tried to feed the dog to Tom the lil' cat, but Jackbob tried to scare the cat.   Bob then became angry and Tom got  angry too.   Tom didn't know why he was angry  so he started chasing Bob around, but Bob was angry that Tom was angry because he was angry, so he started chasing Jackbob the dog.

The Agenda...

January 6th, 2007 | Posted by pftq in Blabberbox | #

Bah.. two days left of break - so much to do :(

Quick list:

- Update Fort Wars (patch due any time + Aztec sucks, need to announce ladder etc)

- Castle Blood (Balances, ladder announce etc)

- Then I got my own homework from school to worry about

- Some guys want me to make a UDaPreyMap - sounds pretty intresting but….

- Finally also setting up an AOM Design Library for Paperfriend - which just finalized not too long ago but still needs some adjusting

Meh - too much for one person.   Elpea claims to be able to help playtest UDaPrey but… maybe someone should make the map first :p

Planet Bob

   “Sorry,” I said quickly.  “We’re lost and don’t mean to intrude on your property.”

   “No problems at all!” the man exclaimed cheerfully.  “We’re always glad to take in guests and newcomers.  Please, come in!”

   Once inside, he took off his hat and bowed rather lowly at us.  It took me a while, but I suddenly realized he was touching his toes.  I was about to ask what he was doing when he quickly stood and put out his hand.

Coffee

December 28th, 2006 | Posted by pftq in Blabberbox | #
         Just bored here while the rest of the family is napping after the long drive.   My sister next to me was trying to drink a cup of coffee but spat it back out after the first sip.   Then she goes again to try and drink it, only to spit it back out not much later.

         I don't know why she bothers.   Coffee is  so disgusting.   It's this brown, murky substance that, had it been anywhere else besides a cup that said "Drink", no one would consider drinking.   It doesn't taste or smell good, and it certainly doesn't look appealing.   People try to deny this, but notice that people who drink it often have it mixed heavily with sugar or cream -  to hide the fact that it's so nasty.

         Some people claim that they need the coffee to wake up; they need the caffeine.   So wait, let me get this straight.   They drink the coffee for the caffeine - which makes them high and wide awake.   Wouldn't that be the same as taking drugs? So drinking coffee is like taking drugs - makes you high and lets you "wake up" (although after it wears off, you feel dead-tired).   Why not just take a couple of caffeine pills every morning...   much cheaper too.

         Bleh - you won't ever find me drinking coffee! :p

Off for the Winter...

December 27th, 2006 | Posted by pftq in Blabberbox | #

        Winter break now obviously - can’t stay home the whole two weeks. :-/   I’m going to be off again - will probably be back Tuesday or Wednesday next week.   I have no clue where I’m going - just another random road trip.   Hopefully not as boring as the last.

Fort Wars Ladder

December 24th, 2006 | Posted by pftq in Blabberbox | #

        It turns out Elpea’s old ladder for Fort Wars has ALWAYS worked.   We were working on an XML version for NOTHING. :( All we needed was to add &sFlags=0 to the address we were using. Argh!

        Now splitting it so that we have an expansion and non-expansion version… Would be perfect to release on Christmas XD
