More Amnesia!




I'd like to mention this stellar FPS Horror game again, and highly recommend it. Steam currently has it on sale for half off, so GET IT! This is one of the most entertaining (and frightening) games I have ever played, if not the most. It is unmatched as a constipation aid.

I CHALLENGE you to try it!

Web Voips!

I'm trying to decide on the best internet VOIP program, and am comparing those that I use the most often.

Ventrilo:

 My classic VOIP, it is very reliable, and priced similarly to Teamspeak for a server (Both are free to download). However the sound quality is nowhere near as good as TS, and hasnt been updated in many moons.









Teamspeak

Recently updated to "3", this new VOIP brings forward tons of new features, and improved quality. The new security features are also worth looking at, and I appreciate the greater number of ranks possible for registered users.





Skype

 I have very little experience with this very popular program, as I have only ever used it for video chat, and watching friends scream like girls to Amnesia: The Dark Descent. But from what I have seen, it features decent quality, with simple interface. My only complaint is the constant nagging to purchase their extra calling features.


All in all, for simplicty, I recommend Ventrilo, but for quality and features, I would go for Teamspeak.

Free Anti-Virus's

I feel like a little information would be helpful to some of you, heres my opinions on the top free anti-virus's.

1. Avast Anti-Virus

    An extremely comprehensive program, yet takes quite a bit of resources. There are many features in this program, that make up for its extensive resource hoggishness, including it's web browser protection, integrated firewall, email protection, and ease of use. The interface is gorgeous, and easy for all levels of computer users. It even includes a "gaming-silent" mode, that I rarely use, that shuts off notifications and sounds that might interrupt your experience. It is free, but requires registration. Also, it is important to note that it updates daily, automatically, without bothering you.

2. AVG Free

    An extremely popular program, AVG is simple, and effective. It has everything the average user requires, with a no-frills approach. I would suggest this for all, it is low-maintenance, and quite simple. As looks go, it looks as it is, simple. No registration, and great coverage, with no extra capabilities. My only complaint is spread out updates.









3. Avira

    I tried this program for a few months, and have little to add to it, being that it is almost exactly like AVG. Great coverage, simple, and effective, with no extra abilities. Perfect for the average user. My only complaint was the annoying update pop-ups on every startup. But it updates far more often than AVG, but not as often as Avast.










4. Norton

     I threw this in here for teh lulz. This is the biggest piece of crap I've ever seen, and people actually pay for it. It's a resource hog that pushes itself into every aspect of computing. Rid yourself of it, purge the evil! BURN IT AWAY!














In summation, for the average user, get AVG. If you want more ability and protection, get Avast, at the cost of a bit more protection.

Teh1337sp||eekWarBand@@$%%#1337!

I had planned on posting an intelligent commentary to the recent Chris Lee photo fiasco (Suck it you craigslist whoring twit), but I've been sidetracked by another problem that has been the raging migrane pulsating against my gaming urges for several years now.

It seems since the cultural "mainstreaming" of high profile blockbuster video games, we as a group have attracted the least desirable of all social groups, the youngins that comprise 99.9999999% of most action games on Xbox 360. Thankfully I myself do not own one, but whenever I confront the clawing masses online with buds, I can't contain my rage and urges to drive to these squeakers houses and pummel them and their mothers. It seems that anyone between the age of 11 and 14 has a social addiction to anything that has the word halocallofdutygunsgoreviolenceetc in it.

To get the the point of the matter, as much as I can put up with their infuriating game tactics, total disregard for teamwork, 'nails on chalkboard' style voices, and maddening playstyle, the one penny that tips the entire load, is the names. You can instantly guess the age group of any person under this category within 5 years, just by the amount of special characters in their name. Tell me I'm wrong! But how many of these idiots do I have to play with before pouring acid into every possible orfice to escape the pain!

Tape Looping!

One of my latest endeavors has been to re-create the "tape loop" track that was created for the song Money by Pink Floyd. After endless scouring of the internet to find a simple audio track of just this loop of cash registers, I found about ten billion phone ringtones and some cheap pron that was about as fulfilling as eating your own snot. Disallusioned, I decided to splice the track myself, and have since been searching for a way to separate the "instruments" of the song from the intro cash register reel that Roger Waters created, and keep that as an MP3 for the intro to our performance. Thanks to a friend (thanks Tom), we are making a little progress, but need ideas as to get the cleanest sound possible. If anyone has any ideas as to how we can do this (we are using the freeware Audacity by the way, http://audacity.sourceforge.net/) please comment with suggestions.

As for background, I have set up a group to perform for a talent show, hopefully performing Money, and the far easier "Us and Them". I include their names simply to give them the attention they deserve for putting up with my dictatorial tendancys, and they deserve mention for their efforts.
The group:
Vocals - Sean
Lead Guitar - Travis
Rhythm Guitar - Myself
Percussion - Eric
Bass Guitar - Frank
Keys/Synth - Ruthie
Alto Sax - Sean as well
Tenor Sax (including the Dick Parry Solo) - Rachel

Thanks to you all, and I hope I can get video of the performance to share with all you awesome viewers.
Good night, and have a wonderful week!
