Out of the Blue

Man... a midnight snack of Doritos was a really bad call... two Alka Seltzers and a Pepcid later and my heartburn has almost (*burp*) abated. Damn those tempting chips and their deadly powdery coating!

Blue you have a weak stomach. I thought you were a big man with your spicy chili recipe but you get stomach problems from Doritos like a little boy with a lactose intolerance.

indiv, (secret text ensues...)

there was an area with tons of small living quarters. each was labeled with the name of the person assigned to that particular room, and their status. one of the rooms was assigned to Christian Antkow, his status was "relocated". very cool, i thought.

are ya managing to move along in doom, or is WoW still consuming your life?

Please note: I'm hammered on Jack & Ginger right now....


I don;t seem to manage more than 30 minutes of doom 3 right now.

WoW still has me addicted. I;m in pretty deep. Level 19 human warrior that just crossed the ocean. Very well executed game. As for Doom3, I haven't made it to the first boss yet....the finger aches after 20-30 minutes of WASD.

thanks Ray and Sixis... secret text follows.

your advice worked great. the splash of the rocket launcher helped me take out the seekers fast enough to finally take some shots at the guardian, and hitting his "energy light-ball" wiped him out... what a great battle! what a great game!

did you guys see the Christian Antkow homage in the delta labs? very cool of willits (or whoever) to put that in there... i'm out of hell and in the cpu area now, almost done and not too happy about the propect of finishing!

Olestra is...

Thanks Zathrus -- I do know what Olestra is, how it works, and why some people get diarrhea after they eat it, which is why I would classify it as *points with both fingers this time*, IMO, a poison..

It's huge, biologically and chemically speaking. In fact, it's so big that our bodies cannot process it -- it cannot be absorbed by the intestines into the blood stream. Instead it passes on through the entire digestive tract.

Add to that the fact that it absorbs a number of necessary nutrients as it passes through, thus preventing their absorption by the intestines into the blood stream.

Of course, the engineers counter this by adding extra vitamins to the mix, but frankly, with all of the various difficulties the body has dealing with the stuff, I have no real qualms about calling it a poison:

Yeah, but, this way I get a lot of the spices in one go, without the chip spoiling the taste.

Like I said on the second post in this thread:
"Precious ranch dust"
That is, all the spice and seasoning with some tiny chip crumbs at the bottom of the empty bag.



Everybody I know now hates me, as I have blown everybody off to play Doom 3....ahh well, lives come and go, but there is only one Doom 3.

Preferably, first I lick all the spices off the chip itself, then just devour the chip, all soggy and moist and without taste. My wife thinks it's gross. Women.

Tron - The Guardian works like this: When you see the blue light above him that passes energy into him, SHOOT THE LIGHT, not the monster. You can get about 6-7 secs of shoots into the light each time you kill all the flying things (which spawn 3-4 at a time, kill all for the light to show up, they respawn during the vulnerable period, so in fact the new ones will appear at the same time you should be shooting the light)

Tron specific spoiler over

"Big Secrets" (Don't look if you haven't at least beaten the game once yet) Did you find the secret id chamber and pad? It's on the last level, push the id block to the left of where the Cyberdemon's cutscene starts. Also, the fourth tablet in the "tomb of the hero" is the box cover from the original Doom.

I'm off to play some MP...

Blah blah...secret text...blah blah:

1. They do respawn. Obviously, they respawn when you destory them all and had time to attack the creature for a bit, but they do also respawn if you take your sweet time destroying the three of them.

2. Use the rocket launcher - you have like three crates of ammo for it in that area and it is damn effective. You can kill a seeker in one hit with the rockets.

3. Move to an area where you are not exposed to the guardian and just wait a second or two for the sweekers to swarm together; you can easily nail two, if not all three, of them at the same time. Once you have (at least) two out, move again to an unexposed area and stop, waiting to see where the third seeker settles. The moment it does, fire a rocket at it and, presuming your aim was true, run toward the monster and start firing away at its portal. Again, use the rocket - it only take like four to six good hits to take it out.

Edit: I guess you could try using the BFG 9000 to clear them out, but that just seems incredibly wasteful. I never bothered with using the BFG 9000, though. Once you get the pattern down, the total battle should last just a few minutes...

Signing off secret style,

Ray

Anyone know how far you can extend a normal monitor cable before the image gets screwy?

In theory ~100ft with GOOD cable (and nothing causing interference, which is the hard part for anything over ~25ft). http://www.cablesdirect.com/search_result3.asp?txtKeyword=Video_Analog&txtName=Premium%20Analog%20Video%20Cables

I love the Spicier ones, or the Salsa ones. Preferably, first I lick all the spices off the chip itself, then just devour the chip, all soggy and moist and without taste. My wife thinks it's gross. Women.

Btw, for those of you who get acid reflux or whatever after eating a bag, hello, do you realise that a whole bag of Doritos is about 1400 calories?? How about you eat a quarter of a bag, then see how it goes.

If you eat nine hotdogs, your stomach is going to whine at you as well. Unless your name is Kobayashi something, then apparently it's healthy.
