About time we updated this thing, really? What do you think? Oh okay. You twisted my arm.
Oh yes. As from now I have decided that an update doesn't necessarily need an <h2></h2> heading. Often as not I have real trouble thinking of one I haven't used before.
A couple of links
- The Mini-Mizer (a.k.a. a reasonably clever waste of time) caused some amusement among my friends last week as we all tried to construct ourselves using it. If anyone knows how to get at the hidden "adult" section please for gods' sakes tell me!!
- Here is another weblog. In its early stages but go and visit it to show its owner your support. (mutter mutter do you copy everything I do with a computer mutter mutter mutter VERY BIG SMILEY:-) )
Doom and more Doom
So guess what Rob spent his weekend doing. Playing a few maps e.g. industrl.wad, an incredibly large map with tons of monsters (over 1300! It had a zeroed reject table so the only way I could make it playable was to get WARM to make one!) It was way too hard for me (damnit!) so I ended up cheating my way round it (oh well...) but you see I'm a sucker for huge levels like that, I need to see the whole of it.
Also, they've apparently officially announced Doom 3 now. I'm not too excited as I know I've no hardware powerful enough to run it anywhere near properly and I like the original quite enough thankyou very much. Maybe in a few years time after another system upgrade and there are lots of extra levels available, made as labours of love by talented individuals.
Once again I found myself unable to use the telephone, putting off making certain calls this weekend, due to being a wuss. But I can't be bothered whinging about it, just to say I was very angry with myself on Saturday. Happily the problem was solved on Sunday, although in a quite subversive and wholly unsatisfactory manner. But the end result was as intended so like I say I'm not going to whinge too much, I don't feel like it.
Another deliciously cryptic piece from the people who brought you "technical difficulties":-)
