hey, I'm from Grace too. were you at the picnic last year?

"If you are ready for high-end computing and don't mind the big-ticket price, the Dell XPS Gen 5 should absolutely be at the top of your list."

wow! this is a real quotation from a certified game professional. Dells have a proven track record of excellence regarding developer applications.

Dell bought Alienware quite a while ago, they are pretty much the same computers now.

Does it frighten anyone else that an aspiring game designer:

a) doesn't know what OS Alienware ships with?
b) is considering buying an Alienware?
c) came here first for help?

Why would you buy an XPS when you could get a E520 Desktop Core 2 Duo e4300 1.8Ghz 1GB/320GB, DVD writer, 22in LCD, 1yr warranty, and VistaHP for $669 shipped free. It would go much better with your picnic.

I recommend the Apple ][c for the best in modern game design. You should be able to get them for a song too.

I whipped out my TI-82 this weekend. I'm re-writing Drug Wars as Foozle Wars. It's cutting fuckin' edge.

I've been playing old Atari ST games on an emulator instead of modern PC games for the past couple of weeks.  For reals.  I don't know what's wrong with me.  I think it might be a mid-life crisis or something.

I found a MMO game design road map you should use for your Apple II game.

What a crappy mid-life crisis!  At least buy a sports car or screw your best friend's wife!

The only problem with the f13 picnic is that it looked like this:

Thank God I didn't go - I'd have totally clashed when I wore my purple suit with the blue gem in the centre.


Also, Signe, that is a woman handcuffed, right ?

Yes.  I was trying to prove that female criminals CAN be sexy.  Also, handcuffs are cool.  Butts are cool, too.  If men had women's butts, they'd look better.

I find myself unable to argue those statements, but I submit that women that look like your avatar simply do not go to jail.

Why am I homeless?  Why do all you motherfuckers need homes is the real question.

Save your money for college to get a degree in computer science. Then go out into the work and secure a job writing business applications like the rest of us. You'll have more money to buy beer, the time to drink it and you can armchair everyone else's games.
