Is this the end of CoD?

No... no its not.

Trailer below!

Just a quickie...

Every month I back up my music, pictures, por..... erm... personal videos... and all the other stuff that would be awful to lose in case of internal hard drive fires.

A common occurance.

On setting off the back up to my External Hard drive Windows gave me the following estimated time of completion:

Thats just over 114 years.... not to bad then!

I think the best thing is thats its "about" 41712 days. I'm sure you'll agree though, as stabs in the dark go, thats pretty shite.

Who programmes these things!?

Hey All

Came across this the other day and had to post it simply because I couldn't believe it.

Some band I have never heard of.. called the "Neurosonics" teamed up with famed beat-boxer "Beardyman" (and I encourage you to look at that link) to create the following piece of music that was performed live on stage with HOLOGRAPHIC Beardyman heads....

There is no CGI here and this is what the audience saw... check out the video below...

I have my holo-deck on pre-order.

Sony made a boo boo. A big boo boo. Thankfully a short boo boo... but a boo boo nonetheless.

They might know how to create highly prized televisions, huge mechanical hearts for the start of football matches and dodgy touch screen phones (I think I have lost my train here)

BUT they can't read a calendar.


Did you try and log onto your £400+ shiny black box of hardened gaming flint on the 1st of March. Did you see this?

Did you get confused? Then annoyed? Then ANGRY?

Well that's Playstation speak for I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE DATE IS.. ARRRAGAHGAHGAHGHGGGAHHAHGGGHHH *weep, gurgle, death*

Millions of gamers worldwide weren't able to use their PS3.. and here's why:

A long long time ago, a promising engineer in the dark Sony Dungeons knew that 2010 was a leap year.. he KNEW... and taught the original "phat" version of the PS3 this irrefutable fact in Playstation school.

Mr.Three (as he is known) graduated with flying colours and went on his way to live a life of honey and candy.

Years later, this Monday just gone... this irrefutable fact he learned was proudly displayed to the world..

"look everyone, its the 29th of Feb" he said... eyes wide with innocence and pride.

Only to find Gamers all around the world silently shaking their heads with barely contained fury... and with disappointed hearts they pointed to the date on all the other, and much cheaper, branded products they owned... and they all said....

"Its the 1st of March you stupid black paperweight"

This revelation, NO!... this PARADOX, which to Mr.Three was a crack in the very LAWS OF TIME AND SPACE ITSELF caused its tiny brain to melt and its hopeful soul to shatter.

As his sanity slipped away, people heard him jabber...

"I am unable to find the trophies... I am unable to find the trophies... "

Gamers turned their back on him... switched off the light... and to their life partners surprise... took them out for a nice meal.

Mr.Three was left cold and alone under the T.V... with dust its only blanket for warmth.

Now that isn't the official press release... but that's the gist of it.

Suffice to say once the sunset on 29th of fe... erm.. sorry.. the 1st of March.... sanity was restored and Gamers abandoned their partners again for a serious Call of Duty session.
All is well with the world again!
