Posting of rants and random stuff, not particularly in the ranting mood at the moment, but I do have a question that I like asking civilians: Whats your opinion on the Iraqi war? I know there are some Australians, a Swede, and a New Zealander or two around (they call you kiwis don't they?) and I would love to hear your opinions on the matter. Oh yeah and do Australians get p!ssed if someone calls you an aussie?

I don't know of any Australians (self included) who find "Aussie" offensive.

As for the Iraq thing, it's a right stuff-up, putting it nicely. I don't have a particular view on whether Australia ought to exit, but I don't think GWB has a clue how to finish the job. There's not a lot positive to say about it, although the removal of Saddam Hussein isn't a bad thing.

But for crikey, Brett!!! "Stuff-up"???
I'd like to say that I agree with you on this matter, but that expression's not on dictionary.com, so I can't be 100% sure...

"Stuff-up" is roughly equivalent to "cock-up".

I've read & finished Deathly Hallows, it was COOL!!!! The end scene especially was AWESOME!!! Harry just PWNED Voldy there. I am sad about who died (I almost cried a few times)... I won't mention who, just in case some poor soul who hasn't read the book comes across this mesage.

About the war... (I feel very un-patriotic saying this Sad )
I really don't know about what's going on. We don't watch the news and my parents never tell me ANYTHING. So I guess you could say I'm sheltered (like REALLY sheltered). My parents support Bush though, and we pray for the troops overseas.

My birthday was on the 12, I'm 17 now, and I saw Transformers that night!!! I have to say, that was the most visually sweet and exciting movie I have seen since... since... I can't remember!!! I feel deprived, because I grew up in the tailwind of the Transformers era. Sad
Giant robots beating each other up. Cool.
Really though, the movie was hilarious! I loved the scene where Optimus and the rest of the Autobots were hiding around Sam's house, trying not to get noticed by his dad, which resulted in them destroying the yard. "Whoops. My bad."
I think my favorite Bot was Bumble Bee, the yellow Camero. I loved when the girl insulted him and he threw both of them out of the car, and drove back all brand new and they played Battle Without Honor or Humanity, very fitting.

If any one has seen the latest Dr. Who, then I just want to say Beware The Weeping Angles!!! That was so creepy! And in the end when he tricks them is so cleaver, it is one of those shows that is so involving and thought out you cannot take your eyes off it!

Is that Angles as in a 90 Degree angle?

Or was it meant to be Angel as in the little cherub things with wings?

Does it quack? I think you're talking about duct tape Smile
Watching the kids play DDR at Dave & Buster's is really fun!

Exactly. That's why I said duck tape and not duct tape.

I enjoy DDR... unlike Guitar Hero, I can actually play it. Of course I'm a lefty and was holding the controller as though I was right-handed. Next time I play I'ma try it hanging upside down and see if I improve any.

Ah yes... I am now, formally, the Proud Owner of books 1 & 2, one Kiwi figurine, one Nastajia figurine AND a sword necklace (worn as I write).

Actually they came a week and a half ago (the same day I went to Chamonix skiing), and since then I have been so busy I didn't have time to unpack it until today! Sheesh!

Thanks for the sketching Scott - and please remember us "virgin fans" when you get as rich and famous as J K Rowling, George Lucas and the rest of them guys! Very Happy God knows you deserve it, this is a superb story; well told, excellently drawn/rendered and wonderfully unpredictable.

I curse my biological need for food and shelter which prevents me from owning the books and figurines right now--mostly I want the necklace though--it's silver and it's THE sword. Who WOULDN'T want one?? Very Happy

Nice thread. Let's post! *giggles*

You talked about DDR and gaming systems on the first pages.

I have owned a soft dancemat for... three years now. I bought it shortly after Assembly 2005, where I played DDR for the first time. Anyway, with some kissies and huggies I've managed to keep the dancemat alive for all this time. It is starting to break a bit, though =/

Here's a video of me playing. I normally use Stepmania and almost always play user made songs. I don't really like the music of the "official" releases, though in the video I play Blue Water & Blue Sky from Videogames mix 2.

http://rapidshare.com/files/88383549/BlueWaterBlueSky.avi

Close up picture, too!

I am possibly buying a metal mat soon, but it might also take some time as my guitar hobby is becoming somewhat expensive...

Gaming systems!

I have my old good amiga right here, two metres from my current position!

Picture

I am currently using a cable to connect my amiga to that TV as my monitor appears to be somewhat damaged. I get the sound from the monitor, but the picture is transmitted to the telly. I hope to soon get a data cable for PC - Amiga file transfer so I can watch some Amiga demos on original machine.

Speaking of DDR and Guitar Hero (of which I play both), have any of you checked out Pump It Up? It's DDR-esque with the arrows, except imagine a DDR arcade pad inverted - so all the arrows you press are where the DDR arrows are not (including the center).

Code:

A   A
  A
A   A


Makes for some interesting patterns, and the version I played (at least) had a pretty good music selection too. Smile

How many mats have you made? Do they work/function better than a store bought one? Do they also have X, O, Square, and Triangle, Start, and Select?

The first platform I made used the PlayStation controller interface. I also connected it to a PC through a PlayStation-to-USB adapter. It had a nine-way tic-tac-toe grid of pressure switches, although the one in the middle wasn't actually connected to anything, plus two additional foot-switches for "start" and "select". It worked considerably better than the soft mat it replaced, but I eventually broke it after much pounding and jumping.

Since then, I've been trying for designs which are cheaper and more robust. That first platform was very expensive, but I've now come up with designs that aren't much more expensive than soft mats (if you don't include the cost of work involved in building it). I've experimented with about five different designs so far, and I think number six is going to be a charm.

I usually play on Heavy level with arrows at x2 speed, but there are a lot of songs I'll skip under those conditions because they would tire me out, and I'm aiming to play for around 45 minutes continuously.


Shocked Dude, you're a genius! How much do I need to pay you to get one of those mats?
