i've never heard a full album by this band, and today i saw _Kill 'Em All_ on the shelf at the library, so i am listening to it now... it's kinda enjoyable in that 1983 sorta way. this would have been a year or two before i discovered Dungeons & Dragons..

i'm still using Altec's ADA885 (aka ADA890) 4.1 speaker system that i got as the top-of-the-line audio option with a Dell back in 2000, and they still stand as some of the best PC speakers i've ever heard...

those are the ones i'm using right now ... purchased online for $73 two years ago (including shipping)... they are pretty nice.

Deadzone: Sanitarium please?

i will offer up:

Wing Commander III: Heart of the Tiger
Wing Commander IV: The Price of Freedom

both of these have *everything included (manuals, books, promo inserts, etc) in the (huge) boxes. would prefer that they end up in someone's game library or for collection purposes - they are in pretty good shape.

710  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Gothic 4 to have new name and US/EU color palettes on: May 20, 2008, 06:57:26 AM
Gothic 4 Slapped with New Name
by Aaron Linde May 19, 2008 3:00pm CST tags: Gothic 4
The latest installment in the Gothic series has received an updated name and is now known as Arcania: A Gothic Tale (PC, PS3, X360), GameSpot reports.

Handled this time around by Spellbound Entertainment instead of series creator Piranha Bytes, Arcania's change of name is meant to grant the Gothic franchise a fresh start in North America, where it had been comparatively unpopular than in other territories.

Additionally, the latest build of the title reveals that the North American and European versions of the title will feature different color palettes featuring bright and colorful graphics and gritty muted colors, respectively. The alternate color palettes are the result of months of research between gaming preferences in either territory.

The Life of Pi - Yann Martel
can i say i really did not care for this book... i am placing Yann Martel in the cadre of "Annoying Canadian Authors".

The Elephant Vanishes - Haruki Murakami
The Cat Inside - William S. Burroughs

also been poking around some Python/Ruby/Linux how-to books and some vegetarian cookbooks... not very enthralling reading, and i never get too far in them.

currently reading:

The Lord of the Rings - J.R.R. Tolkien (book three of six)

Just a note to any Canadians that are interested, all of this software is made for our American friends and does not port well (if at all) to Canada.  Which is a polite way of saying the software is useless and pointless for Canadians looking to utilize the features.

try GnuCash, mentioned above - it has a more international bent. AND IT'S FREE

got the game from a Microsoft Game Studios employee this week... spent a few hours cleaning off my hard drive and defraggling and installing (12GB footprint!) only to be greeted by a "Your PC does not meet minimum hardware requirements - Continue?" message upon boot (due to the Athlon 2500 processor). it defaulted to 640x320 resolution and the game itself looks like pixelated garbage. and what's with the "You must be signed in with a profile to save" thing?

being single is a far superior choice to being stuck in an unwanted/burdensome relationship
