Part 1 of the Jan LAN Dual Core was attended by the Flatlanders and Cheffords, both having been absent for over a year. The *new* regulars consisted of Stavos, Excelcier, Tom and Dan, with a brief visit by the Morlock who was too lazy to bring his computer. Stavos made up for his lack of Portal cake with ample portal decorations while my portal cake went over well and fooled everyone. Excessive monitor loaning forced me to play on my 110" projector which worked well after the initial motion sickness passed. Games started with Unreal Tournament 3, followed by Crysis, then Farcry, then Call of Duty 4 with a round of Starcraft for the late-nighters. Memorable moments included Dans mid-game upgrade to my spare GeForce 6200, Toms revenge hunting of Cheffords, the flatlanders COD4 teamup and projector shenanigans, Cheffords cool T-Shirt, Excelciers excessive belching, and my intoxication and subsequent obnoxious banter. Part 2 looks to be double the attendees and therefore double the fun. Enjoy the timelapse from the GnomeCam.

Bring your own monitor fools, you hurt Brad, which hurts me which will hurt you!
Stavos
Hey it won't be a lan party without my musical belching. Glad I could make the memorable moments list!!! WOO HOO! And thanks for the "XMAS IS RIBS" shirt Brad.. you're my hero. lol
Excelcier
Which of you little girls will be attending brad's Jan LAN 2 so that I may destroy you fully and not just by using Brad's PC?
MorlockPrime
I'll be there and so will my wife. She's ready to kick your ass again in F.e.a.r. I'm ready to kick your ass in Unreal3, and Crysis and i'm also prepard to get my ass kicked in COD4
Stavos
If I recall correctly the last time I played Fear against your wife, I dominated her and then kicked her from the server because she sucked too bad. As far as Crysis goes, I was flattening you. If I'm not to tired from kicking your ass at everything else, I'll comply with your reqeuest to get your ass kicked at COD4.
MorlockPrime
As I remember correctly she kept killing you, that's why you booted her from the server. She was the top killer during that game, I remember this because we were laughing how we all got beat by a girl! And as far as Crysis you were playing my computer when I was gone. So how did you beat me?
Stavos
Nerds on battle talk! HAHAHA
Excelcier
Until I sat down at Lloyds PC and trounced you like a n00b. Excelcier, I'm so happy you recovered and are able to talk instead of just belching everywhere. You're manners are just as Canadian as I would expect.
MorlockPrime
We shall settle this like true geeks and play a 1 on 1 game of Crysis. Winner takes home the title of "Nerd of 2008"!
Stavos
I suggest we find some way of wiring electrodes from our PCs up to our balls so that the loser is unable to reproduce (as losers should not be allowed to spread their seed). That or we play to the death.
MorlockPrime
Fine by me, you'll just fat finger the keys with your monkey hairy like hands, you damn filthy morlock!
Stavos
Now you're just being mean, I can't help that my parents were cave dwelling cannibal machinests. At least they weren't Canadian too!
MorlockPrime
This is true A Morlock has never been called a "hat" or been made fun of for its appreciation of bacon, or its lack or size of an army. You should run for President of Canada! oh wait....
Stavos
If I were to run for office in Canada, that would make me a defacto Canadian, and I would have to end my now pathetic canadian existance. Also I can not abide by worshipping a 300 year old queen, no matter how well she can wave to a camera.
MorlockPrime
Not to mention idling a leaf! Atleast we have a badass eagle! However Canada did one thing, and that's bring me and the Morlock closer...
Stavos
And that's what its all about, our friendship and mutual disgust / hatred / laughing at the Canadians. I salute you America's Hat (but only in so much as I would salute any hat I would wear, which is never, so go screw yourself Canada).
MorlockPrime
Comment Spammers!
AtomicInternet
Wow... just wow... American ignorance at it's finest!! Lol... I bare witness to the abuse. hahaha.. Glad it's not aimed at me. :-)
Excelcier
Oh but it is aimed at you :)
Stavos
Canadians are the worst! They don't even realize when you're making fun of them. It's just awful! Why don't you go prey to your Maple Leaf while you rewatch "The Year In Queenly Waves" on you're Canadian TV.
MorlockPrime
Well when I find a Canadian, I'll send em your way for feeding... until then, us American's should be nicer to the Canucks
Excelcier
Don't be such a poser. The day you decided to move there, you became one of them. If you ever move back we'll consider reassimilating you back into proper socieity. Until then, eat your Tim Bits ya damn Canuck!
MorlockPrime
Kiss my what??
Excelcier
I love Rons selective citizenship. He jumps to the best side that looks good in a particular subject. Brilliant.
Stavos
I'm going to give the Queen a call and see if she can deport him to France.
MorlockPrime
Is this the Queen that has the gifted hand waving technique? If so I will wave back as best as I can without insulting her with my none English untrained hand.
Stavos
Well she is one hell of a waver. I think the only reason she waves at the Canadians is the hope that they'll think shes mute and can only wave so they won't come up to talk to her. She hates conversing with a damn dirty Canadian. And who doesn't?
MorlockPrime
Does England really care about Canada? Honestly I think the Queen has visited the U.S. more than the famous hat. But then again Iím a egocentric American and know nothing beyond our borders, and or care....
Stavos
All I know is that there are people out there beyond our borders and they're all stupid, weak, communism loving, Tim Hortons eating retards. And the canadian ones are far too close for comfort. I suggest we put a great minefield at the border. Also, we should fill the bridge and tunnel up with canadians and then blow them up. Conversly, we could use the Canadians as a cheap mulch for our farms.
MorlockPrime
Damn dude that's kind of psycho/dark. And wouldn't the Canadian mulch smell like bacon?? Not that it's a bad smell :)
Stavos
Hey I was just bouncing a few ideas i've been having off everyone else. I'm not saying I've mulched up Canadians before (they do smell like bacon when they're mulched by the way) or that I ever would (I would). I'm just saying its an idea. Sort of like England sending all of their criminals to Australia. Hmm that would be a good use for Canada. "Hey welcome to canada aye. what are you here for aye?" "well i like killing people and turning them into suitcases." "well thats swell aye, would ya like some tim bits aye?"
MorlockPrime
OK, If I read that right, Risner wants to bang the queen.. oh my god dude!! You're fucking desperate! There's plenty of American's near you into gross filth that would be willing to actually sleep with you, no need to stoop lower than the American women near you. :-)
Excelcier
Yes, we all know you're mother would have sex with anything ya damn dirty canuck!
MorlockPrime
Seems like you both are avoiding each otherís questions. Obviously there's some heavy sexual tension here. Someone needs to make the first move to break the ice!
Stavos
Stavos you must be confused. I don't drive a cougay.
MorlockPrime
No it's worse. Time magazineís number one Gay car... The Jetta, followed by the Sunfire, and VW Bug.
Stavos
When the hell is the next lan party!

Portal Cake Stavos recommended a portal cake for tomorrows LAN party a few days ago. Not being one to wait for him to fail to execute said plan, I found a similar enough cake at Kroger to dress up into a close approximation. Not to be outdone, he will be bringing various portal themed decorations to complete the experience.
User Comments for 01-11-2008:
Oh i was going to bring the cake, however your cake purchasing has bested mine and therefore I refuse to outwit your cake purchasing and dressing techniques since you completed them in a timely matter. However my printer is out of wax ink and I will have to use your printer tomorrow for the rest of the print outs.
Stavos
I'm just thankful neither of you baked. I'd rather not get sick because you thought bleach was an acceptable ingredient.
MorlockPrime
Hahaha, dude, that is freakin sweet... Too bad Im spending the day at the mall with the tweens...
E1
It's all a lie!
Excelcier
Where's the JanLan Blog!

My recent gift of Transformers Monopoly had me itching to play, and with Keith in need of treadmill transportation I decided it was the perfect opportunity to trap him and Schwartz into playing a game. The Transformers theming was cheesy at best, and Hasbro didn't even invest in a new mold for houses/hotels, so we were left calling purple houses energon cubes and red hotels anti-matter. Despite the lack of appropriately themed development pieces (the fault of which lies entirely with Stavos, the original purchaser), we managed a full 3 hour game. The end of which declared me the superior Jew by $200 after counting up assets. Yes I counted up assets, winning is that important.
User Comments for 01-05-2008:
Brenda Dickson thinks you're more then half ewish.
MorlockPrime
I'm happy to supply my good friends with cheesy brand placement board games for the corporation to make quick buck with a 90% markup item.
Stavos
What I have learned through the whole re-visiting of the Transformers franchise is that Hasbro has become very cheap in their products compared to 20 years ago. Transformers in the 80's were metal and impossible to break, and creatively transformed. Now days the vehicle looks good but the robots look like ass, and break if you try and morph them.
Stavos
Cheap BASTARD!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

This year Duane threw an 80s/Tiki themed new years party consisting of various 80s movies/commercials playing on TVs throughout the house, girly drinks, and appropriately themed costumes. It turned out to be an excellent way to welcome in the new year. A notepad "prize" in my popper gave me the opportunity to write how I really felt about everyone at the party, which I then folded and passed to each individual. An enjoyable visit to the "Brighton We Are Awesome Club" also means getting lost on unlit backroads during your departure, which I did at 3am during heavy snowfall and a high probability of drunken man-rape. I managed to make it to the highway unharmed, only to be "that jerk" passing everyone in the unplowed lane all the way home.

Gravatars The laziness of a southerner famous for never answering Xbox 360 chat requests prompted a comment about Gravatars. Intrigued, I took a look at the implementation page and discovered the easy way to solve my "create your own evader" problem and prevent a pellet gun attack from said southerner. Just choose "GRAVATAR" for your Evader and make sure you enter the same email you used to create your Gravatar and you'll once again be hip with the internet. I also took some time to build some statistics on the results page which quickly and accurately indicates exactly how much I'm loved by 10 people.
User Comments for 12-28-2007:
If I'm to understand the statistics correctly, Stavos has nearly 6 times as much free time on his hands then I do.
MorlockPrime
Allow me to correct your statement by replacing "time" with "money" However i had no spending money when I was a new home owner, takes 3-5 years. Yes i'm back in the game! Now I need my additional 2gb ram to beat Brads score again.
Stavos
I'm guessing you two never setup your Gravatar on their website since mine works.
AtomicInternet
nope I hate signing up for to many things. Now fix my icon when I select it! I have the most comments listen to me haha!
Stavos
Hahah, Zac "kiddy porn"-boy is on your top 10... LOL! Oh, and when you default to an icon you aren't showing the updated one, you have to select something else and then reselect -- fix your chit mane... :P
E1
I guess that does show how much free time we have.
enorym
Yes you heard it here: if you read Brad's web site you have too much time on your hands. That or you hope for an entry about his cougay being crushed by a real car.
MorlockPrime
A real car? As compared to what, a fruity VW with a iPod sticker in the back window and a liberal, flip-flop wearing hippy behind the wheel? :P
E1
You know I just did a search for "2008 Cougar" and I couldn't find anything mentioning this year's version of the cougar. I wonder why? I did find a lot of stuff when I looked for "2008 jetta".
MorlockPrime
I found the 2008 Cougar.
AtomicInternet
Real car compared to a 325hp muscle car like ohhh I don't know maybe the 2002 TransAm, just threw that out there randomly
Stavos
Yes, I'd consider teh TransAm a real car. A little bit hillbilly / small penisy, but a real car none the less.
MorlockPrime
atleast it's not a gay/chick car like a Jetta or something, haha that would be funny if a guy owns one.
Stavos
Please, you might as well be driving around in a hummer with a sign that says "a unconfident guy with a small dick drives me...CHECK OUT MY RIMS!!!"
MorlockPrime
settle down and save it for the LAN
R1OT
I don't have a wife to beat, this is the only place I can get out my agression!
MorlockPrime
It's illegal to beat your wife in Michigan, however it's not illegal to beat on Cougars, and VW Jetta's, they put up just as little of a fight as well! :)
Stavos
Is it also illegal to fill Brad's Cougay with cow manure and let it sit in his garage for the winter? That should be awfully ripe come spring. I'm pretty sure it will improve the overall value of the car though.
MorlockPrime
Granted i'll take a Cougar over a VW bug.. errr Jetta anyday!
Stavos
Come on Stavos, you're already emasculated enough by driving a TransAm, would you really cut off your balls and drive a Cougay?
MorlockPrime
That would mean i'd have to cut my mullet off and put wheels on my transam that's parked on blocks in my front yard, and i'm far to lazy for that. Short answer: hell no heeuck...
Stavos
Don't forget to take your baths in that little Kiddie pool you bought from Brad too while you sip you're Colt 45. At least red necks like yourself are smart enough to not drive a Cougay.
MorlockPrime
Hey i'm still up for sitting on top of Brad's roof during a Cougar meet with the hose in one hand and a beer in the other... Ah this is going to be a great 2008 summer!
Stavos
Let's do it! You bring the hose, I'll bring the beer....and the eggs...and the spite...
MorlockPrime
holy post hijack!!
R1OT
Who is this R1OT and why does he feel he can contribute to our record breaking comments? He must be a cougay driver.
MorlockPrime
No i drive a tor-ass now
R1OT
ahh the flatlander. You're car is not impressive, but is certainly less feminie then the cougar.

My recent adventure with Vista Backup yielded a modest gain in data transfer performance thanks to the fourth drive in my RAID. My disk performance boost came just in time to help keep me well above Senator Kelley's new configuration. His recent upgrade to 64-bit Vista bested my video performance. The data transfer crown for Michigan is all that keeps me going, and I can't let him have it. Perhaps the California champion could run HD Tune for me and pass along the screenshot?

Rating: 3 - Link to this Article 12-23-2007 Vista Complete PC Restore Blows View Webcam for 12-23-2007 4 COMMENTS
Vista Complete PC Restore Blows Since there is no 64-bit connector for Windows Home Server, I enjoy the irony of having to manually back up my most-likely-to-fail 64-bit Vista RAID 0 workstation. The 3 drive RAID has served me well until recently when I started running short on space. A spare drive I had on hand in case one failed was the perfect solution, and after reading a very happy tutorial on the Complete Backup/Restore tool in Vista, I was full of rainbows and bunnies about the whole process. The backup was surprisingly fast and wiping out my RAID was almost as satisfying as recreating it with the fourth drive, bumping my failure potential up to 4 times as likely vs. a single drive. The happy sunshine restore procedure worked great until an ugly "wrong size/number of drives" error refused to let me restore anything. A 2 hour odyssey of trying various disk/size/volume/partition/drive letter combinations to satisfy this error yielded no results. Fortunately a google search located this rant of people who also found the restore procedure less exciting than advertised. Apparently the folks in charge of this feature for Vista decided allowing you to restore to something other than the exact same drive configuration as you backed up from would frighten and confuse the average user. Since the point of a backup is to allow you to recover from a drive failure, you would think mapping your old volumes to new ones would be a common sense feature to include. Instead, after researching the recovery console command line, I pieced together the magic command to restore to whatever drive configuration you please: wbadmin start recovery -version:12/23/2007-05:59 itemtype:volume -items:c: -backuptarget:h: -recoverytarget:c:, replacing the version/drive values as needed. Obviously this is much easier to remember than providing a simple dropdown to select which drive you want to restore to.
User Comments for 12-23-2007:
Time for a Raid 0+1 my friend. Two stripped + two mirrored drives.

I moved back to XP x64 on Saturday to get some additional performance. Seems I may run into the same problem anyway... Thanks for the tip!

Snowman! This morning I woke up to a 42°F day which makes for great packing snow. What's the best thing to do with packing snow? Fire snowballs at unsuspecting passers by of course, but building a gigantic retarded snowman is a close second (I'm the retard on the left). My goal was to make one larger than my inflatable one, but lifting 50lb snowballs without them disintegrating was beyond me, so I fell a few feet short. Lisa provided needed approval, and the Morlock promised equal opportunity violation for both snowmen. Enjoy the abomination I've created until it melts.

Evidently, Engadget read my recent blog post and decided to create Evaders for their comment system as well. They're calling them avatars but it's obvious they stole the idea from me. Nobody else comes up with this stuff. Stavos, co-creator of the evaders, is already pursuing legal action against them.
User Comments for 12-21-2007:
Seems like a nice complement.

I'm consulting the creator who invented the "Evaders" name and prepping her with exciting football moments before she's sent into the bull pin with the Engadget crew. As a result Engadget has no chance.
