What I Have Been Up To

So, I have been offline, so to speak, as far as this blog is concerned for quite a while.  Wow, for like 2 years.  Jeeze.


As you know, Blogger is hard to post to.  That doesn't mean I haven't been writing for it though.  I have, but as I mentioned before, I end up just scrapping them.  The topics were mostly government or politics related anyway, so they weren't important in the least bit.  Trust me, no loss there.


I think I mentioned once that I had bought a Playstation 3.  Well, if not, I did (buy one).  I bought it towards the beginning of last year.  I was able to take advantage of the holiday Blu-ray special I had found online, so I got 5 Blur-ray movies free.  My current Blu-ray collection is 12 movies, but I have two more coming in the mail.  Even on a standard TV, the output is crisper, clearer, and more colorful then DVD's.


I prefer first person shooters, and I have Resistance, TimeShift, and Call of Duty 4.  (I have lots of other games too, but those are my favorite FPSs.)  COD4 is my absolute favorite, I spend more time with that game than any other game I have-online of course.


PlayStation Home Bata was just made available for me a couple weeks ago, so I have been there too.  I have been anticipating it for a year.  It rocks!  I enjoy the bowling, pool, general chatting and exploring the glitches.  You can often find me at Sully's bar dancing on the bar. ;-)  The new Red Bull area is cool too.  So far, I crash a lot, but every now and then I can get all the rings.


The main criticism I have for PlaStation Home is that there is no voice chatting in the public areas.  That aspect really needs to change!  This is the 21st century after all.  Typing in chat rooms and bulletin boards was fine back in the 80's and 90's, but come on, technology has advanced, give us voice.


The same plea can be made for any instant messenger in Linux by the way.


I would love to give you my PlayStation username so you can look me up and we can play together, but the current use policies for the PlayStation forbid telling people your username.  I know, lots of people do it, but I enjoy the system too much to jeopardize my privileges of the online services.  It shouldn't be hard for you to discern it if you wanted too though.  ;-)


Well, that pretty much suggests everything I have been up to in my spare time.  Oh, except there is Hulu.com and other free movie sites, which reminds me, all the T.V. shows I like are retuning again.  Yay!  Monk and Psych returned last Friday, and tonight, its Kyle XY.  We finally get to find out what happened to Amanda (she is sooo cute!).  Gosh, it's been so long, I can't remember if that's the characters name or not.  I'll have to go to abc-family.com to re-watch last years season finale, to catch up.
