The orange box

Well as it just came out and i had only just (yes only just) after about a week finished Half life so When orange box cmae out one of my friends had a spare Half life 2 that he generously gave so on with cheating steam and playing Half life 2 without net connection, so got it home edited the files told it i had played online and it had been updated and voila, it didnt work so im going to save up some money and build myself a new PC and have it overnight at someone else’s house to download all my steam games and then get on with playing the half life series but meanwhile ill play half life 2 on a friends PC to try and keep up with the story as much as is possible. Before i sign off heres a quick note about PAWN online multiplayer, a fun little shooter with very little graphical and memory usage that can be played in a browser, recently ive been playing it and me and a couple of mates have started up a little clan for the game, Check out my other blog for the clan and send me or an admin form the site and email if you take up an interest



Jo rowlings “oh and one more thing”

Even though JK Rowling didnt do a steve jobs and say oh and one more thing she did let it out quite casually according to certain reports. But to what she actually said well prepare for a shock if you havent already heard …. Dumbledore the ex-Headmaster of Hogwarts is officialy Gay, yes a bit of a shock if you know who he is but Jo say it herself so believe it!  For more on the story go to the leaky cauldron.

The Click of death

Yes, as the title may have given away my laptops Hard Drive is giving the tiniest click of death every so often and i am sure it is not the HD just loading something because it is not any longer than a second and sounds more like the arm clicking on something however I have already backed up my system as I tend to backup in some form every month or so Just in case. Many People have automatic backup systems and backup and reinstall every day just to keep the system clean but i have no need for that because most of my installers are on disc or USB and all of my music is on my iPod ready to re-download onto the PC. But this isnt just a short rant its a warning to people who never back up, It is important even if its only a file backup for files you cant get back or already have copys of, I tend to create an image of my HDs once a year and put them on a safe HD somewhere or onto DVDs, so if you dont backup then i strongly urge you. The one bad thing about this is that no matter how many times its repeated on the net, there are still some (like me) who dont realise the importance of it until the danger to your files is very real. But to end on a good note, ive reached my goal of buying a DS modcartridge (for those of whom dont know wiki it) and am about to order it in the next few days or so. Until next post.
