Yeah we kind of had to do a quick turnaround in doing another show. You'll know why when you get to the end of the podcast.
Some of us were having some crappy days and week and that kind of showed in the energy and pacing of the show. We'll booze...liven it up a bit for our end of the year live show.

Oh, and I meant to say that I am playing "Geometry Wars: Galaxies" instead of Galaxy Wars. I was way scatterbrained last night.

I believe the Hard drive uses part of the hard drive for caching for when you are playing games and thats why you cannot use all of the hard drive.

Does that make sense?

Sorry to see you go Bling, all the best mate. Like you said we need to get this game of COD going. I am available Friday or Saturday night. Are you guys up for that?

Thanks guys. I really enjoyed being a regular on the show, but I gotta do what I gotta do. But I'll still be a regular on the forums.

As for the CoD4 game .... I'd be available on Saturday afternoon (which would be Saturday night for Lazybones ... and maybe Sunday morning for Gundrill?)...

That would be 2:00 p.m. Central time for those of us here in the states. I think I can do that. I have my new office desk being delivered that day, but I won't know what time until tomorrow .... but regardless, count me in.

And I might be online here and there before hand, so I'll give you guys something to shoot at .... and miss! smile

Awwww. I'm gonna be away from my Xbox all weekend. . . But i'll still be monitoring the forums to see who wins (Only to double check that WE won)

Also hoZt, when you get free time, maybe you could put a link in the members area showing the match results e.g; Points, kills etc?

BTW, Lazybones, have you noticed that our k/d ratio is almost exactly the same, and we both have 18 as our high streaks? Eerie.

 Lord Bling I think I speak for everyone who listens to the pod-cast when I say that as soon as I heard you were leaving the pod-cast I had two thoughts:
 Wow, I can't believe he's leaving
 Wow, how can I talk those guys into letting me take his place?

Seriously, Lord Bling I'm happy for you. I'm glad you'll still be active on the website. I congratulate you on taking a chance on something new! I wish you much success.

Hope to see you on-line!

Thanks for the kind words everyone. The new job is going great ... although there's definitely a learning curve involved. Even though I stayed in the game industry, it's still a career change.

If we don't do a Podcaster vs. Member CoD4 match soon, I won't be able to play as a Podcaster! smile

Sorry for the double-post, but I just listened to the podcast, and near the end, Miles said: 'If it weren't for you, I wouldn't be here.'

Therefore, I am Miles's daddy.

LOLZ!

why you getting to my question now? i asked that a while a go.

i have the elite and yes i did remove the extra content. i just wish that 120gb hdd was 120gb, not 111gb. so if you have to say 120gb of usable space then do it.


sorry to hear bling's leavin. best of luck. the show was awesome as always.
