Finally...

Right, I haven't posted in weeks, I know...

I cancelled my subscription to Star Wars Galaxies. I just wasn't having fun with it anymore. Plus I hadn't playyed in weeks, making paying for it pointless. I might play it again someday, maybe after they finally release that Space Expansion they always mention but never talk about.

I finally broke down and bought Horizons: Empires of Istaria a couple weeks ago. It is ok, but the lag is so bad even on cable internet that I find it unplayable at times. I cannot wait for my birthday, which is the 12th of this month by the way, on which I get the parts to build a computer with over 700 megs of RAM, 120 gig hard drive, etc. All I need know is good internet to go with it, as the new awesome machine will be at my weekly home, where the internet never gets higher than 28k and the phone compnay has installed DSL less than 100 feet from our home....

In other news, I have a D in Spanish II and my father was pissed. Granted I need at least 3 years of it to graduate, I don't understand how. My father has threatened to take away my internet, as if the D will instantly transform into an A and all will come from miles around to dance and rejoice.

I've been playing Return to Castle Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory a lot. It's a pretty fun game for something that was meant to be an expansion back but was dumped then released as a standalone FREE download. Maybe I oughta by the first Return to Castle Wolfenstein as well, it's pretty popular.

My father recently bought Diablo II. We used to play the original Diablo over our LAN sometimes, it was ok. The thing that bothers me is that my dad has no concept of online play. He never talks to the other players, helps them, anything. He even went so far as to make a private server just for himself to play. I ask him "Father, why dost though play alone online, when thine may doest the same offline without tieing up yon phone line?" Well, maybe it wasn't Exactly like that, but still. My father's only excuse for playing alone online, is that he wants to level the one character up. Ugh. Apparently if I'm on the internet more than 3 hours I'm endangering peoples lives because his coworkers can't call him up in his off time to ask the dumbest questions, yet he can sit there and play Diablo II half the day by himself like a loser and tie up the phone line. As for the game itself, I have not yet played it. I will eventually though, as my father is obsessed with the idea of getting me a copy and having us play together online when I'm at my mothers...

That's all I have for now, so just remember....My birthday is the 12th....of March.....2004.....
