|Getting Back to Normal||February 27th, 2009|
Our friend Lucy died last week. I haven’t really felt right since, tonight I think I am feeling a bit better, after I got some information that makes some things make sense. I only knew her for a few months, but she was cool. We’re all going to miss her.
Other than that, I have been trying to get my mind off of things. My Xbox has stopped working however. It isn’t anything serious, just that I can’t connect it to the internet. It sucks, especially if I want to pick up Halo Wars next week, since any RTS is funner when you are playing against other people. Games that are meant to be played with others, like Left4Dead, Halo Wars, Resident Evil 5 are lacking when you play them alone.
On the work front, MyJokeCafe.com has more than 30,000 members. We grow more and more everyday and with the addition of Comment Cafe, you can now have your own comments to put on other people’s pages. The testing server for the sites, however, isn’t as powerful as the live server, so putting the 30,000 members along with all their information into a database on that server was a bad idea. I just hope I can sort through it in the next day.
I guess that’s it. This weekend, I don’t know what is going on, but I do have some stuff to do for work once everything on the testing server is sorted out. Things with my site, are paused. I have had the Spiderman 3 synopsis typed and done, just adding pictures, but I haven’t gotten around to getting all the ones I need. After that though, some big changes might be coming. Stay tuned, it will only get better.

|Halo Wars||February 16th, 2009|
I managed to sit down and play the Halo Wars demo over the weekend. Originally I had low expectations for this game, Ensemble has made some addicting games over the years, namely the Age of Empires Series, but never did I thought a Real Time Strategy game would work on a console, let alone a Halo RTS. I was wrong though. The game works, the controls are built for a controller and not for mouse and keyboard that are ported over to a controller. It also gives insight to the Halo series for those who didn’t read the books.
I know that this was the last game Ensemble was working on, and Halo 3:ODST is the last Halo project Bungie is working on, but I am still hoping that a new Halo project is announced after the latter. I love the Halo series, especially the Master Chief and Arbiter storylines, so maybe they will continue once ODST is out.

|New Layout and Guy of the Moment||February 11th, 2009|
The new layout is up. I believe is is much cleaner, even if it isn’t much of a big change. I have added a Twitter section so I can update on the go with what I am doing and whatnot. I added the updates to the sidebar for the time being, until I can get more content for the homepage.
We have our first ever Guy of the Moment, so I would like to congratulate Jonathan on being the first. I hope he is proud, he had gotten almost double the votes of second place, so that is something to be really proud of. I didn’t have much participation getting guys to sign up, but the voting really took off, so I might do it again in the future.
