Thanks to the JFK Presidential Library and NASA, starting today, you can visit http://www.wechoosethemoon.org and follow in real time, the Apollo 11 mission. Including audio of CAPCOM, the Ship and Eagle (When it gets to the moon).
It’s a spectacular site. Once the mission is over the whole site will be re-playable in any order, but for now, it’s a blow by blow of the mission just as it was 40 years ago.
When I think of the technology I cary around in my pocket on a daily basis and how it would run circles against the best that NASA had when this mission was launched, this mission is truly a testament to the men and women of the space mission. Amazing.
Our guild Knights Who Say Ni is progressing along quite well. We had so many people signed up for the 10 man Obsidian Sanctum that we decided to find a couple more and do the 25 man version instead. Less than 45 minutes later I won the roll for my first piece of Tier 7 gear, Valorous Cryptstalker Handguards. Very nice in deed.
I’ll update with the Warcraft Web Stats link later.
Edit: WWS Stats I got disconnected twice during the final boss fight, crappy internet to blame for that. But that’s all fixed now, so hopefully no more connection issues.
I loved playing Trade Wars 2000 on my old BBS, and others for that matter. So in light of that I’ve setup Alien Assault Traders on my blog. You can get to it here
Alien Assault traders, is essentially a clone of Trade Wars. You get a ship, and build your galactic empire through trade, colonization and domination. Check it out.
So many fond memories before my dear beloved XBox 360 passed away early this afternoon.
He was a dear friend and will be missed. His replacement should be arriving in a month or so from the good folks at Microsoft who, have extended the warranty to 3 years, for XBoxes suffering the genetic default that is the “3 red lights of Death”.
So fare well my friend, you will be missed long after you’re gone.
I have thus far accomplished 2 great feats in my 32nd year.
1) I tamed Sian-Rotam, a white lion with a black mane. Note the superb double trapping skills used to claim my new pet.
2) I beat my first 2 songs on Hard in Guitar Hero 3
Just got back from the EB Games to pickup my copy of Grand Theft Auto 4. They opened the doors at midnight, but I wasn’t going to stand around that long. Ended up going by around 12:45 after having a pint at Staysea’s Milestones.
Only ended up lined up for about an hour, and well worth it, just from the Special Edition safety deposit box and the fun times waiting in line with a bunch of other die hard gamers. I’ve got tomorrow off so of to play. Just came up here for a few 40s and some chips
I finally hit exalted with the Netherwing faction. Those who don’t know what that is, won’t care and those who do, I did it. I ran the daily quests, but I also spent a good amount of diligent time collecting Netherwing Eggs, 38 of them to be precise. More than enough to shave 5 days of the shortest 14 days without the Eggs. Here are a few screen shots. I ended up speaking to Onyxien and we will be adventuring together from now on.
