I thought the front page needed an update and Iâ€™m too lazy to go search for news, so I decided to write up a little Atomm Nihilo Blog post. I know how much you enjoy my rambling, so here goes. 😛
This week has been unusually good. I canâ€™t go into all the details, but a lot of things have really gone my way lately. Being the optimist I am, I fully expect next week to suck big time.
You may notice we have started a Ranked Battlefield 2 server. I must be honest. I was completely against it. The whole idea of having a FPS act like a freaking MMORPG leaves me feeling a bit empty inside. I use to play MMORPGâ€™s. My Wife threatened my computer on a daily basis. I think marriage counseling was coming soon. My job suffered and I noticed I felt like shit all the time. Damn you Ultima Online. So, I switched to FPS because itâ€™s a hell of a lot easier to walk away from a game of Battlefield, then it is to try to make that next skill point or next level. Ah come on honey, I know itâ€™s 6 am, but if I could call in sick for work, I know I can make an Uber L33t level. To cut off my rambling, let me just say thanks to Jesus for Opening My Eyes. You have shown me the way and it is great to have a full server again, even if it means I have to play 235 more years to make my next rank. My life may go to hell in a handbasket, but at least I wonâ€™t be alone. Sorry honeyâ€¦.
If things go as planned, we will have a 32 player map Ranked server and a 16 player map Ranked server next month. Life is good, for the moment. I would also like to thank TCAdmin for the help with the TeamSpeak server. If it wasnâ€™t for them, we would not be able to offer a free TeamSpeak server for anyone to use. They were kind enough to supply us with a 50 player server for anyone to use.
Along with the gaming goodness, we are working on two new podcasts. Thatâ€™s right, 2!
The first one will be Gamers Radio Podcast. It will feature gaming information and industry interviews. I canâ€™t tell you who our first interview will be with as I am still working out the permission details, but letâ€™s just say it will involve patches 1.01 and 1.02. Cross Your Fingers as this could be good. Along the line of being addicted to video games, we are working on getting a well known Doctor to offer advice to those of you who are struggling with a gaming problem. If we can pull this off, I promise Dr. Kill will help you overcome your Smacktard ways!
Our second Podcast will tie into our 24/7 radio station. As many of you know, we try to do our best to help promote top quality unsigned artists. We have been very lucky to find a lot of great bands. Even luckier, we have recently talked to a few bands about being a part of our second Podcast called Rock Bone Radio. Each show will spotlight an Indie Rock Band, giving a chance to learn more about them and their music. We already have two bands lined up and plan on working to bring you more top notch Indie Artists. We hope you enjoy both shows as much as we will enjoy doing them.
Slightly off topic, I read that the next version of Windows (aka Longhorn) is going to be called Vista. That is a really strange name if you ask me. Or at least thats what I thought until someone explained that it stands for Viruses, Infections, Spyware, Trojans and Adware. Now it all makes perfect since.
Well, I guess that is enough rambling for now. You know, for a lazy ass bastard, it sure took me a long time to write all of this. Maybe I should have just surfed for news to copy and paste.
Frag you on our new server.
