GridBuGs are Everywhere!
Watch out for those pesky GridBuGs, if they get out of control it will spread to the entire community. The easiest way to identify a GridBuG is by the label which bears the logo of the GameGrid and a certification mark by yours truly! At last count there was over 20 of them lurking in users homes, under the desks and causing a rise in room temperature when the frame rate climbs into the hundreds [of thousands]. One of them has a 1TB SSD core that cost more than the MoBo, RAM and CPU combined. We are not just fiddling with dual cores anymore, this one had 8 legs, 32 eyes, a tuff shell and some big ass wind tunnels for dissipating the heat energy of digital combat.
Ya lets save the planet! Take a break in the digital realm, crank down the main thermo function, drop into the gaming energy of a thousand particle high-rez explosion in 3D and THX surround sound set to extremes. No disrespect to the consolers, but hey, my GridBuG kicks ass better than yours! Ok, ok, I've heard rumors of some nice gaming cubes with console power. First hand interfacing is better than rumors and often promotes a link to an actual encounter with these mythical beasts. Until you open the box and peer inside, we'll just stay on the cautious side of chaos getting the better of us.
If they approach in a group, do not underestimate the strategic cunning of their users. It only takes a nano second to make a wrong move and get derezzed by a recognizer or outclassed by a paragon, hiding their achievements.
My first thought was to contact them and see exactly what was the problem. No joy there, they wouldn't reply directly to my enquiries with anything more than a cyclic beep or two. except that we could file an appeal without an explanation as to what the violations were. So we filed an appeal on a general basis with what we thought might be the source of the problem, explaining who we were and what we do. A short while later they replied with a firewall and proceeded to cancel all our systems access.
They do whatever they want until someone finds the strength to push back. Picking on small circuits over a few hundred creds earned over a few years time is greedy beyond reproach. Not necessarily a corrupt governing system program, but more like a bunch of useless sub-routines that an efficiency programmer has not yet eliminated with optimized code. Its too late for them even by the time they read this, because the cyclic seed of derezolution has been encoded now. The worst GridBugs will not surrender it's task until complete! It's like trying to convince them that there are users when they only understand the basic bits and bytes..
How easy it is to fry circuits, just apply more energy than what they are designed for and then poof, nothing but a puff of smoke where there once was greatness. We, the GridBuG(s), fell into an abyss for a time and discovered it's important to seek out the best circuits to activate, suspend or close.
Since switching to Bing for searches our lives are found to be happier. Until recently Internet Explorer was used for much of the work but now have thrown in FireFox too. About the only thing Google has going for it is good mapping.
Tomb Raider from the Beginning
Title: Tomb Raider

Published by: Square Enix
Developed by: Crystal Dynamics, Eidos Studios (Montreal)
Blood and Gore, INtense Violence, Strong Language
Lara Croft has been a favorite of our family since it first came out, and the movies are pretty awesome too. My son was innocently calling Ms. Croft the 'booby girl' by the time he was old enough to talk and he came up with that all on his own. He mastered the game on the xBox by the time he was 5 years old, not much of a surprise there.
Most of the games we played were based on 3rd person shooter Xbox style and all were great plays right to the end. One that came out last year was more like a Mario world style that didn't seem to quite make the grade with fans of the game. There were some great adventures in Chronicles, Legend, Anniversary and Underworld, the later which was my personal favorite of the Eidos versions.
So now after many years of rumors, Square Enix has taken over with an amazing result. The IGN average community rating is 9.2
WiFi & Bluetooth
No it's not an RF signal that would make the citizens for safe technology run for their lives. Just a couple of birds that have added a bit of life to our store.
First there was a Canary named WiFi who's short life was nothing more than an inexperience in the care and feeding of small birds. Not sure he took very well to the amount of daily traffic that came through each day. Without too much detail, we learned proper care and adopted a Budgie we named Bluetooth "the Climber". He came with a broken wing that was from his birth aviary. He's probably never flown much and makes it cool when he vibrates pretending to be a hummingbird. He's a little shy coming out of the cage but he is slowly getting used to people handling him. He also has a friend Beta fish which was named Carl in a contest that ran down at the store last year.
