Happy 2009 !!!

January 1, 2009 -

Best wishes for a fab 2009 to everyone in the GamePolitics community!

I'm taking Mrs. GP to a movie today (Milk), then dinner with the folks and maybe catch some of the Rose Bowl (rooting for Penn State).

How are you spending your day?

Re: Happy 2009 !!!

Heh, I got RickRolled on New Year's Eve only a matter of minutes before midnight (maybe over an hour, since I don't remember when it happened), and I laughed harder than I had in a good long time.

Re: Happy 2009 !!!

Spent a good portion of the time watching the all day Looney Toons marathon on Cartoon network, one wonders why they show tom and jerry regularly yet never show looney toons.

Re: Happy 2009 !!!

Spent the day getting my head around the Java Observable Interface and trying to bend my old Z80 head around Object-Orientated programming.

It's a very useful way of coding, but so easy to let things fly out from under the radar, you have to keep a close eye on the design specs.

I think languages can get to a stage where they become too inter-connectible, for example, Java interfaces make for a useful tool, but unless you design with them in mind from the start, they can cause more confustion than assistance. This is not good when you are a University student who is learning the language whilst writing a project, since time is limited and it's a pain to keep going back and re-writing sections based on newly gained information about the language.

From what I recall the Swing interface doesn't implement Hardware graphics acceleration, so I might also have to learn JOgl in order to do the main screen of my Uni project, yet more to add to the ever-growing list...

LOL

I'm glad I'm not the only person that Swing engenders that reaction from ;)

Re: Happy 2009 !!!

My day was spent wondering why instead of going into the nice warm house, I slept in the backseat of my car. I blame 2008.

Re: Happy 2009 !!!

Played a little GTA IV, but mainly watched the Rocky movies.

I watched LSU whip Georgia Tech 38-3 in the Chick-Fil-A(Peach) Bowl last night.

Geaux Saints, Geaux Tigers, Geaux Hornets, Jack Thompson can geaux chase a chupacabra.

Re: Happy 2009 !!!

Re: Happy 2009 !!!

Well, I just finished one file that needed to be transcribed for work and am going ot put off the other one until tomorrow -- it's the holiday, I can do that!  Also, just got Guitar Hero World Tour for Christmas from my hubby, so I'll most likely play a few rounds of that.

Re: Happy 2009 !!!

Playing video games and watching bowl games (including the Rose Bowl).

I'm not a big movie-theater person, but I would like to see "Frost/Nixon" sometime.

Re: Happy 2009 !!!

Frost/Nixon makes me laugh.. Frost has a reputation here in the UK for being a decrepit old senile presenter, and in the film he's some trendy young go-getter. xD

Re: Happy 2009 !!!

Well it's not set in modern times, Nixon died in the 90s. According to wikipedia the interviews it was based off of took place in 1973.

Re: Happy 2009 !!!

Yeah I know.. but it's like imagining your parents as children. Just doesn't work in your mind.

Re: Happy 2009 !!!

I got beaten up and had my glasses nicked on New Years Eve, so mostly I've been loafing around, squinting at Prince of Persia.

Re: Happy 2009 !!!

bummer... on the beatdown, not the game...

Re: Happy 2009 !!!

Heh thanks.. chance of me getting the specs back though, a couple of people helped us out and one of them got hospitalised; so the police are getting involved, taking a statement from me tomorrow.

Re: Happy 2009 !!!

Working. Yey, it sucks, but i do get paid double time and and half for it.

Playing Tetris. Just like how I celebrated the Obama victory. Damn I promised I wouldn't do that. Oh, and I might go see Milk, looks pretty awesome.

Re: Happy 2009 !!!

One thing for sure; I won't be going to see Sean Penn's newest shitty movie.

Visiting some relatives, and otherwise relaxing.

Re: Happy 2009 !!!

Reading GamePolitics of course.

Re: Happy 2009 !!!

I'm probably going to spend today, and my day off tomorrow, working on leveling my paladin in WoW to 80.  I should get to 73 by today, and with any luck 74 by the end of the weekend.

Re: Happy 2009 !!!

Well, I have to replace the breaks on my van, finish setting up my dev server among other things.

WonderkarpI found this neat. Shows the different ways different websites tell the same story. Not VG Related, but its neat https://i.imgur.com/3m6xOfE.jpg01/29/2015 - 2:12pm
Matthew Wilsonnp I am still suprised that the fcc did it, but I still do not trust the chairman yet.01/29/2015 - 2:11pm
Andrew EisenYeah, what I mean is I'm fortunate enough to live in an area where I have the option of up to 50Mbps if I want to pay for it. Meant that as an anecdote; didn't mean it to come across as a "you're wrong!" Sorry 'bout that!01/29/2015 - 2:06pm
Matthew WilsonThat is why I said "every market". for example totalbescuit has TWC, and the best he can get atm is 10/10.01/29/2015 - 1:58pm
Andrew EisenTWC offers speeds that high, at least in my area. (Standard is 15Mpbs)01/29/2015 - 1:54pm
Matthew Wilson@prh I still have my doubts. if anything the big winner is Comcast. they are the only isp in the us that can provide that speed in every market they serve. att, verizon, and twc cant or at least dont.01/29/2015 - 1:50pm
Andrew EisenTrailer for Ted 2 and it looks like it won't simply be a rehash of the first. That's encouraging! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S3AVcCggRnU01/29/2015 - 1:49pm
prh99It's nice to see an FCC chair who isn't just there to facilitate monopoly building for cable and telecom. Basically not a dingo.01/29/2015 - 1:46pm
Wonderkarpmine was grandia 201/29/2015 - 1:39pm
Matthew Wilsonoh btw only about 5.6 percent of the us has broadband now.01/29/2015 - 1:21pm
Matthew Wilsonhttp://www.theverge.com/2015/1/29/7932653/fcc-changed-definition-broadband-25mbps did not think the fcc would go through with it.01/29/2015 - 1:16pm
Andrew EisenI know, right? Don't you dare think the fact that I buy all your games makes this sort of behavior okay, TT Games!01/29/2015 - 12:57pm
IanCHow dare thy release games that do well both commercially and critically. How dare they. (refer to the Lego games)01/29/2015 - 12:55pm
Infophile@Wonderkarp: Tales of Innocence. Was in the final dungeon, when I accidentally left my 3DS on an airplane and couldn't get it back. Lost both the game and the system. Got a new system, but not the game (not fun enough to be worth replaying)01/29/2015 - 12:10pm
Andrew EisenOh, thank goodness. There will be at least two console LEGO games this year. For a moment I was worried there! (LEGO Jurassic World, LEGO Marvel's Avengers plus LEGO Ninjago for handheld.)01/29/2015 - 12:08pm
prh99Cminer: It's the only way to monetize Nintendo game videos. Otherwise Nintendo content IDs them and take all the AD revenue. Also it's only covers a small portion of their catalog.01/29/2015 - 12:06pm
ematuskeyWonderkarp: Pretty much every Elder Scrolls game. :p01/29/2015 - 11:53am
CMinerMaybe I missed something; is Nintendo actually going to try and force people to join their program? Or did they just create a program, and people are speculating?01/29/2015 - 10:53am
prh99I wonder if I can craft an AdBlock filter that only blocks ads on Nintendo videos. (not serious)01/29/2015 - 10:46am
WonderkarpI'm still going to do nintendo videos when I start my lets plays. I'm just going to make sure I'm uploading nonnintendo videos more.01/29/2015 - 10:40am
