Chat Mistake on Battle.Net


Oops.

Was playing some D3 last night with SparkleSpanx and was running my level 50 Barbarian.  I joined her game which was a Paragon level 71+ Barb (i think) running on Torment or higher, I forget.  Anyway, I was getting killed with one hit from just about anything, and really needed to power level this toon.

I had asked her in the chat to help power level my character (running Nephalem Rifts or Bounties on Torment++ where they just kill everything and you reap the XP gainz).  Except when I made my next joke, I had accidentally switched over to General D3 Bnet chat, when I posted “please power bottom me”.

This was intended as a PM to Spanx, but ended up going to everyone in the public chat…

Here is one of many responses I got to my embarassing message:

My Original PC Mechwarrior 2, Heavy Gear, and Battletech Games!


My dad brought down a box he had saved containing tons of our original disks and manuals from quite a few of the hundreds of PC games we had growing up.  There are some real classics in here, but as I’m recently really getting back into the Battletech universe and Mechwarrior, Mechwarrior 2, and Mechwarrior Online, I was really stoked to find these discs, manuals, and even some flyers for original VR tech from the 90’s and original MW2 Multiplayer software!

The Clock Terrorist – Big Misunderstanding or Something More?


I saw this picture and comment from someone on the 2600 Facebook group.  It was a pretty interesting analysis about the situation with the clock terrorist kid who “invented” a clock and brought it to school, causing a bomb scare and him to get expelled.  Then he gets an invite from Obama and Zuckerberg to come to the White House an FB office.  Pretty interesting analysis, but I’ll let you make up your own mind:

“As you know – my degree is in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. So, as someone with some appreciable expertise, I analyzed the “home made clock” that the kid in Irving was supposed to have “invented” and taken to school. First, it is NOT a simple alarm clock. It is a COUNTDOWN clock. Second — the kid didn’t home make or invent anything. He decomposed an already existing commercially available COUNTDOWN clock (as evidenced by the commercially manufactured Printed Circuit Board (PCB)) as shown in the picture of his device.
