My head hurts... 
3rd-Sep-2005 08:15 pm
Have spent the day working on games presentation for a workshop on Monday. My head hurts now. Main thought - it's damn hard to write about the appeal of games playing when at home without wanting to goof off for a "quick session" on City of Heroes or similar! Somewhat to my surprise, I succeeded in resisting temptation. As soon as I finish eating, however... Only question is: City of Heroes or install Morrowind to find out why Kate's so keen I try it out.

Other things:
It's Labor Day weekend in the US and this apparently means no new Battlestar Galactica. To say I am not best pleased is something of an understatement...

My PDA's died again and, this time, no amount of poking it or slapping it about has succeeded in reviving it. Oh well, guess I'll be allocating a chunk of the cash from this games work for a new one! Still, not so much with the wailing, gnashing of teeth and rending of garments this time. Guess I got it out of my system the first time it died.

Does anyone else think the guy who plays Ronon on Atlantis would probably make a good Bishop from the X-Men?

Good luck with the presentation!! :)


...How much would I have to bribe you to burn me some Atlantis episodes onto CD? I've been trying to download them on my PC but... er... the damn thing ain't having any of it!

Cheers. The actual standing up bit I'm uncharacteristically not too worried about - I could whitter on for England on the games industry. It was more the issue of trying to avoid bloating the presentation pack up too badly with all the stuff I wanted to put into it.

Re: SG:A. Well, it's easily do-able. Really just a question of which episodes and what format you want them in eg VideoCD or DVD to go into a DVD player, AVIs to play on a PC etc. Payment in alcohol always accepted... ;-)

Payment in alcohol can be done! And... er... I don't have any of the 2nd season which is a bit torturous... And VideoCD would be brilliant!

You sure? It's no problem but VideoCD video quality is distinctly lacking. Are you going to play the discs in a DVD player? If so, DVD video would probably give better results. Likewise, if it's going into a PC (if so, does said PC have a DVD drive?), the raw AVI video files would again give better results

Most definately, my geeky friend!

Oh, as someone who does the whole wargames thing, what are the legal issues surround me, thirty friends, paintbull guns and a random forest?

Good to know it wasn't just me!

Re: the paintball gun thing. Really not sure - only ever gone to established skirmish sites. Things I do recall - being informed we are not to to display, never mind use, weapons within some (short-ish) distance or sight of public land. Guess the main thing is whether this random forest is public land or not and whether you have land owner's permission to use it.

too young, smiles too much.

Well, it'll be a few years before X-Men 4 and I don't recall Ronon smiling that much?
