So our main event game took place on Saturday and I finished in 3rd. In the money? Yes. All the glory? No. I was so close to finishing 2nd at least, but I suffered two bad beats when we were 3-handed and I got knocked out. Let's quickly recap how... Continue reading

None other than yours truly! After 11 games, I finally managed to win our poker league's 4th regular season last night. Week 9 I finished 6th (of 13), week 10 I finished 3rd (of 11), and week 11 I finished 3rd (of 14). My total chip stack going into this... Continue reading

If there's one thing I can't stand in League of Legends it's when your match is going honky dory for 10-25 minutes and all of a sudden someone leaves or disconnects due to Internet issues. I understand there are legitimate reasons for leaving a game--life happens--but the vast manjority of... Continue reading

Ack, I just realized I haven't written up my weekly poker summaries (not that any of you probably care, hehe). Here's a quick two-for-one covering the past couple games, both of which were awesome! Last week: I ended up placing 2nd of 13 with a pretty basic "fold to the... Continue reading

Given that I've owned a PC since the DOS days, I've installed a number of operating systems in my life. I usually dread the process, making sure I set aside multiple hours of "just in case" time that always ends up being "Yup I needed it" time. Well, last night... Continue reading

I'm hoping the order will arrive before the weekend so I can spend Saturday installing the new OS/RAM (ordered online). :) I ended up making my 150GB backup last night! Heh. I hope everything goes smoothly! As for video card drivers (nVidia 9800GT+ 512MB), do I still install them the same way as I did in XP? Remove the old ones in safe mode, reboot to normal, and install the new ones?
Fun story: My friend calls me at work on Wednesday morning asking if I'm excited to play poker tonight. I tell him, "Not really. I just feel like chilling at home tonight. Oh well, I'll just show up and play super aggressive. It will either work out well or it... Continue reading

My League of Legends tip of the day is this: If you are getting frustrated in the solo queue it's best to take a break until you can play with friends (i.e., not morons). It seems every time I pull my win column several points ahead of my losses I... Continue reading

Syp has a new post up about the rise of free-to-play (F2P) in 2010, comparing it to the "shareware" sales tactic of the 1990s. That's actually an angle I hadn't considered before. Even though F2P may sound newish, its roots travel as far back as the dawn of home computing.... Continue reading

Got myself Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit OEM and another 4GB of RAM (now have 6GB). Now I just need ~3 hrs to back-up, format, install, and put everything back.
Thanks so much! :)
So I've been using a not-so-legit version of Windows XP (TinyXP) for a few years now and I'm just not happy with some of its issues. I really want to upgrade to Windows 7, but I'm kind of a newbie here. What version should I go for? I don't need... Continue reading

I finally took it down this week, finishing 1st out of 12 players! This netted me a cool $75 and, most importantly, 10,000 points to add to my league season total. As of right now I'm sitting pretty in 2nd place in league standings, a mere 500 points behind the... Continue reading

Sorry for the delay on this week 4 wrap-up. There won't be any hand replays this post mostly because there weren't many interesting hands to share! I ended up finishing in 3rd place out of 13. A few big pots were won, mostly just by having the goods against people... Continue reading

Heh, I just left a comment over there linking to EA_Mouse! ;) Wonder if I'll see some traffic too!
I wanted to add a red bandana and gold teeth but couldn't make it look good. :P
Write a vitriolic "so long f#@&ers" post to the company you claim to be an employee of, provide a few insider details, real or fabricated, to create an inkling of credibility, and tell people you'll respond to their inquiries (then neglect to do so beyond the first few comments). For... Continue reading

Due to all the new releases these past few years, we aren't really lacking for choice in the MMO genre. Some might argue that there still aren't enough good titles out there, but the reality is our options have never been so plentiful. Others might argue the market is starting... Continue reading

(Warning, you need to visit my site to see the hand replays). Things started off so well last night. I really felt like I was zoned in and managed to build my stack up to 43k (from its 20k start) before a single person was eliminated. I actually did it... Continue reading

Okay, so I bought the 3900 RP Digital Collector's Pack last night that includes 20 champs, 4 T3 runes, the Annie skin, and 1300 RPs. I think there was a glitch because I didn't receive my 1300 RPs, so I've sent off a support email. Overall though, it seems like a great bang for my buck because I own so few champs already. I realize the Champion bundle is an insane value due to the inclusion of several 6300IP champs, but none of the included champs really interest me atm. Once I receive my credit I should be left with a 3090RP balance. This should be more than enough for the odd skin or boost. I played a couple random 3v3s last night as Xin and was OWNING IT UP! Need more practice though, robble robble! :) Thanks for all your advice so far!
Is that the Digital Collectors Pack that costs about 3300 RP or are you talking about something else? I was checking out the DCP but wasn't too fond of the heroes that came with it. You do get some nice T3 runes in that pack though. The hero bundle pack wasn't too inspiring either.
@Brent - Gotcha! @Bladock - Oh yeah. :) Any names I should look out for?

I wrote yesterday about how absolutely enamoured I am with League of Legends. Well, I sent my love an early Valentine last night in the form of a cash shop purchase. Luckily, my PayPal account had a bigger balance than expected so I spent $50 on a whopping 7200 riot... Continue reading

I'm always so late to pick up new games. League of Legends (LoL) has been out for almost a year and only now am I finally giving it a shot. Thankfully, there's still tons of people playing it so games spawn quickly. I took SynCaine up on his offer to... Continue reading
