Finally, finally I have a laptop again that can handle the strain of daily writing, video editing and surfing rather questionable websites. It’s been a tough two weeks, and even though it cost me an arm and a leg, it was worth it to get a new hard drive. I’ve got just over 900 gigabytes of space to fill up on the storage medium. Which should hold roughly a quarter of my special folder GIF contents.

In Other News: Transform your weekend, get some Blood Bowl on your tablet, Q-Bert lives once more, the original Mortal Kombat cast are looking good and buff Pikachu is frightening.

Here’s the news that we didn’t post today, because we were too busy knocking on the doors of Jehova’s Witnesses and asking them if they’d like to be Jenova’s Witnesses instead.

          Ja nee, being smoking is one thing, actually smoking is another.

            From experience you know this? I know you don’t smoke.

      Its the most pleasant surprise of my week so far. I thought it got released ages ago and couldn’t remember enough of the game to google it. Thankfully gog made it available for preorder this week, and allowed me to wishlist it 😀

    I only had the four turtles, and a foot soldier. I desperately wanted Shredder, and of course Beavis & RockSteady 😛

            Oh I remember that! Huisgenoot used to publish a tmnt comic weekly and I still have the cutouts somewhere in my parents house. I just have to find out what comic is was originally (i.e. pre-afrikaans translation) so that I can perhaps order it off amazon.

        Beavis/Elvis I think that is what confused me since Beebop had these sunglasses on that made him look like a rockstar 😛

    So AoE online has died? Can we pretty please now get a proper AoE sequel? Also, a proper Empire Earth sequel while we’re in that ball park.
    Still, at least there is 0ad and the Rise of Nations to look forward to.
