|Two decades of being a bed spring.||September 13, 2013, 1:25 pm|
|Damn son, 20 now. I think I'm going to be having a low tier mid life crisis (20 year old version of a mid life crisis). Instead of doing a Richard Hammond at the age of 40 and buying so many Porsche's, I'll be playing with Playmobil and riding in those little tykes Flinstone cars wishing I was young again. It only felt like yesterday that I was still in school preparing for my G.C.S.E's, or being three again pissing everywhere and throwing tantrums in Sainsbury's, oh how time goes by.|
|Laptop seems to despise Doom.||September 5, 2013, 7:59 am|
Well, after four years in the family it seems that my laptop (named Harold) is on its last legs. About a month or so ago I started experiencing crashes when I exited ZDoom, but rather recently it started crashing mid game. So I played with all my other ports, and it started crashing with every one.
What I find peculiar however, is that GLQuake and Half Life run perfectly, the hard drive is completely silent when playing these. Yet when I'm on the desktop (or any Doom port), it makes the sound of Yoko Ono at one of her performances. Surely if it can still play Quake without any problems then it should be able to handle Chocolate Doom without crashing? I suppose it's time to upgrade my 12 year old desktop downstairs (named Fred).
|Parents put off booking with Hoseasons again.||August 11, 2013, 2:29 pm|
I just come off from spending a week on the Kent coast and I have to say I had quite a pleasant time. Visited a nice 50's inspired cafe, drinks and dinner on the beach spending a great time with the family, visiting the arcades and sight seeing in a beautiful village. I can safely say though; I wasn't particularly impressed with the "new" sh-alley(?) we stayed in, god was it awful; the bathroom was about the size of Verne Troyer, uncomfortable beds, shockingly bad kitchen amongst some other things.
I can safely say; if you're to ever visit the Kent coast (which is pretty good by the way) it is worth checking out some of the places like Hythe amongst a few more I can't remember BUT never EVER book a holiday with Hoseasons and end up in the new beach holiday park, as the accommodation was very unsatisfactory (along with the price of a pint) but there are some good places to eat and to visit around those parts if you can forgive the accommodation. Overall; it was a pretty good week but my parents said that they won't be booking with Hoseasons again. Just out of curiosity; anyone else booked with Hoseasons before?
