Penny Arcade Expo 2008

Sunday August 31, 2008 - Author: NightStorm

Amongst the chaos of the past few weeks, we (Tami and I) were given a chance this week to escape for a few hours as we travelled South to Seattle to attend Penny Arcade Expo 2008 (henceforth to be referred to as PAX, because my typing sucks and 3 letters is harder to screw up than 19).
My overall impressions on PAX this year was somewhat of a letdown. Having attended last years event, where the panels included discussions on Penny Arcade’s debut game (which was set to come out on xBox Live) held by Hothead Games, a discussion on the History Of Guild Wars, The Future Of MMOs (which covered a lot of what Guild Wars 2 would be about), and ArenaNet Culture And Origins, I was left with a feeling that something good had happened… I had learned a lot about the gaming industry, and felt confident in it’s future.
This year… (more…)

Gregory (Greg) King, Enters Guilty Plea

Tuesday June 10, 2008 - Author: NightStorm

On this date in 2008, an outcome to years of hard work and effort is finally reached.  Greg King, who launched dozens of attacks against killanet, decided today to finally admit to his wrongdoing, and entered a guilty plea before the United States Court.

Below is the official press release sent out by the United States Department Of Justice.  I’d just like to take a second to thank everyone who helped on this case, as well as Tami (of course) for riding this out to the end.

I think it’s time to breath a heavy sigh of relief.  One less headache.  😉 (more…)

My Overdue Post…

Saturday June 7, 2008 - Author: NightStorm

I am sad.  So very very sad.

Why?

I went out to the bar last week with Tami to celebrate her birthday, and experienced first-hand, that which is to be the future of mankind… the hope for our species as a whole.

We’re doomed.

The band that played are old friends of Tami’s, and go by the name of “Cease and Desist“.  They also put on a show, where they dress up as the singers of the songs they cover (for example, they do an amazing cover of “Maggie May” by Rod Steward, while the lead singer dons the wig and clothes to match) as “Atlantic Crossing“, but they didn’t do that for this show.  So yeah, they’re a cover band… but a GREAT cover band.  The part that left me with an empty feeling for society?  The kiddies that were in the bar at the time.  While many of them really got into the music, some were just… sad.  Not “boo hoo” sad, but “what the fuck” sad.  Some of them were damn near breeding right on the dance floor (when, given their general overall look, they shouldn’t even be breeding in the privacy of their own dorm rooms).  The paper towel dispenser in the bathroom ran out of towel, okay?  No big deal, just tell one of the staff and it’ll get looked after, right?  Nuh uh… some dumbass actually tore it off the wall and left it sitting on the floor.  Yeah, that’s a good way to get it refilled.  I hope the person went in there later, pissed all over themselves, and then couldn’t dry their hands when they were done because there was NO FREAKIN’ TOWEL DISPENSER ANYMORE!!  Morons.

Some of the kids in this bar were outright obnoxious.  Of course, it was obvious that it wasn’t a true bar, but more of a college bar, given the crap that was being played over the radio during breaks in the live show.  Just the same though, we got some networking in, and may have a great announcement coming up soon.  It’s in the works… (more…)

Little Update, and A Kill For Caching!

Monday May 26, 2008 - Author: NightStorm
    So, I’ve decided to disable the Google Cache feature for the time being.  Not because I don’t trust Google, but because, well… I don’t trust some other people.

 

    I guess it’s more because I’ve seen some of the crap that people have attempted to comment with here (if your comments haven’t disappeared from here, I’m not referring to you), and have taken the time to look through some of the site logs and have seen some potential problems coming through by way of the Google Cache view option.  As such, the bots should be, as of right now, removing their snapshot of the site and simply crawling the place from here on.

 

    Anyway, Killanet has purchased a new server for some of our sites, so you may notice this one temporarily disappear as the nameservers are being updated… if that’s the case, don’t worry, the site will be back soon.  Not that you would worry anyway, since I’m not.  😉

 

    Digital Storm has it’s second gaming server 80% done and ready to go.  All that’s left is to… umm… assemble it… (more…)
