WGA600N Even my cat can't get a wire to my Xbox 360 in an inconspicuous way, so I've been stuck with the Xbox wireless adapter which only supports 802.11G. Too often have my HD video streams stuttered into unwatchability and caused Lisa to cry, so today I decided to end her suffering. Microsoft has no official 802.11N support, so a wireless bridge was my only option, and I remember Whineyho having success with his. This being one of the many draft N versions, I wasn't 100% certain it would inter operate with my routers flavor of Draft N, but surprisingly they both got along extremely well and so far no more tears from Lisa. If you're stuck with a wireless Xbox 360 I'd recommend this option over the official adapter any day. I also took the opportunity to switch my wireless security layer from my lowly 64-bit WEP to WPA2-PSK(AES) since WPA-PSK(TKIP) was hacked, and my house has long been a prime target for drive-by hacking on account of my immensely popular blog.

I always wondered why there was a G6 parked outside your house on the web cam. Think i seen some guy looking like stavos in it too.
R1OT
Although the Sam Cat cableing is way cooler and I hate wireless deeply I agree it's pretty sweet. And no that wasn't me! Your webcam can't prove anything because I removed the photo's before you switched from 64-WEP. Doh was that out loud?
Stavos
Three Xbox blogs on the front page, seems like your addiction is spreading, and NO it's not a diseases it's your own damn fault!
Stavos
Lloyd, you're efforts to hide your cougayness behind a facade of XBox gayity won't work.
MorlockPrime
One that uses "facade" in a sentence surely is the most gayest.
Stavos
Perhaps, but when you read it, you pronounced it "fakade" which makes brad the gayest.
MorlockPrime
Damn it! My comment said "makes Stavos the gayest". Brad I don't think you're WPA2 is stopping him! Time to turn off the internet to prevent Stavos from taking over!
MorlockPrime
As of 4:29pm on 11/11/2008 I have decrypted WPA2. The only safe website is a closed circuit website. Everyone prepare to dust off your kneepads! Except you Morlock your's are nice and shinny already...
Stavos
Yes, "nice and shinny" from a lack of use but an attention to detail and cleanliness. Nice try you tart-cart. Now if you had said something like "your's are dust free from constant use" that might have been good. I think living s close to the canadian's is sarting to rot your brain.
MorlockPrime
I can take any gay, mom, wife, or erectile dysfunction jokes, but when you compare me to a Canadian thatís the last straw! I would really appreciate it if you knocked off the whole "comparing me to a Canadian" comments they are not funny and it's really getting old! Now if you excuse me Iím going to cry under my desk and give you a stern evil eye if I see you in real life, only when youíre looking away from me because I hate confrontation of course!
Stavos
But a Wii and a jetta....nah too easy.
R1OT
I apologize Stavos. Sometimes I forget how insensitive it is to compare an american to a canadian. I know it's like comparing a Trans Am to a colostomy bag. Also, I'm sorry your mom is gay and your wife has ED.
MorlockPrime
I accept your attempt at an apology. I'm also sadden by the fact that you can't have a mother or wife since Morlocks reproduce asexualy. Must be a blast during the holidays with your family!
Stavos
Holidays? You mean like MorlockMas and Morlockoween? We don't really do anything with family around then, instead we like to lure virgins undergrond and then eat them. mmmm
MorlockPrime
I heard during Morlockoween they just take there costume off they wear during the year.
R1OT
And this comment just put this post into the top 5.
R1OT
Wow who saw this one coming? a blog titled 802.11N reaching the top 5? This is just a magic place where reality doesn't matter. I'm sure when Brad designed these comments he didn't expect Morlockoween, Canadian bashing, and Cougay slams. You can't make this stuff up! I recommend Brad titleing his next Blog "Random shit" so it tell's it the way it is.
Stavos
That bit about our cosutmes and Morlockoween is true R1OT. I don't know who told you but I assure you, you'll be eaten alive this Morlockoween. Really Stavos? I was thinking he should just title it "Gayity on the Internet(tubes)".
MorlockPrime
I never, repeat never want to see any Morlock tubes in my life time, i'll dig my eye's out with a spoon! Brad should just give everyone admin access on his blogs just like he did with his old nuclear bbs. Total chaos!
Stavos
This isn't that far off from chaos. It is ordered in the respect that I'm always going to bash cougay owners and canadians. And stavos is always going to comment...well maybe not after 1000. After that you can really only shoot for 10000, and that might take a very long time.
MorlockPrime
Screw that i'm ebaying my name after 1000 points. Isn't that the American way now?
Stavos
Sort of, the real American way would have been to cheat to get to 1000 and then sell it. If you can somehow modify brad's query to return an additional couple hundred comment counts for you, then sell, then you'd be on the right path.
MorlockPrime
I sense a L33T H@X comming...
R1OT
Only 12 more comments to go!! Like the morlock says... "do it or I'll eat you and your cougay!"
R1OT
"do it or I'll eat you and your cougay!".....nope it just sounds really gay when you say it.
Stavos
I would never eat a cougay. They're bad for the digestion. And the complextion. And the manlinesstion. And the having of ballstion. Come to think of it they're just bad period.
MorlockPrime
So its more..."you know your car is gay when a morlock won't even eat it"
R1OT
Tied for #2 now!
R1OT
You know you're car is gay if it's a cougay.
MorlockPrime
You know your car is gay if it shows a snowflake when it gets cold out.
R1OT
You know your car is gay if it's driven by someone that lives in Ohio. You know your car is really gay if it's driven by someone that lives in Canada. And lastly, you know your car is the gayest if it's driven by Stavos.
MorlockPrime
Hmmm so any car I touch turns it gay? Wow with great power comes great responsibility that explains why Morlocks Jetta is Xtreme Gay since I drove it in the nude, yup bare ass touched that fabric!... Don't ask long story
Stavos
You know youíre gay if you owned a Cougay. And live in Ohio "I hope that clarifies things"
Stavos
You know you're gay if Myrone has obsessed and owned one of the following cars: Sunfire, Camaro, Corolla, Mustang.
Stavos
You know your gay if you read all 35 of these posts
Stavos
You know your gay when your car is featured on gay.com http://www.gay.com/content/slideshow/?coll=290&order=2&navpath=/channels/style/auto/slideshow/
Stavos
And lastly to break the number one commented topic! You know youíre gay when you are more then 500 post's away from being the number 1 commenter on a website!
Stavos
You know you're the gayest when you ARE the number 1 commenter on a web site.
MorlockPrime
You know you're gay if you go to gay.com to get pictures of cars to say other people are gay.
MorlockPrime
Google told me to go there!
Stavos
Google is gay aswell..
R1OT
ok ok, I hear someone's knocking Canadians?
enorym
I would never.......yes i would.
MorlockPrime
I guess you're FINALLY getting your wish B-rad with the new Xbox.

As a manual transmission fanatic, I'm always entertained by people with shift-tronic, tiptronic, or steptronic transmissions who are convinced they drive a manual transmission vehicle. There's no talking them out of it, so I don't even bother telling them the presence of a torque converter disqualifies it from the definition. Driving a manual seems to have become more important as a status symbol than an actual performance advantage, so marketing has successfully convinced a great majority they are one and the same. Enter the hill start assist introduced by Dodge for the 2009 Challenger (thanks Enorym). It looks like a sufficient number of people didn't swallow the automatic-as-manual pill, and now instead of glorifying a power-sucking torque converter into a manual, a genuine manual transmission has an assist to help novices get over the fear of starting off from an incline. I just hope there are enough people who know what a torque converter is opt for the manual on this model, and the demise of the manual transmission is delayed long enough for my 2011 Focus ST.
User Comments for 11-06-2008:
I love manual transmissions, however ive grown soft. Next car most likely will be a 2010 or 2011 Camaro SS. I will opt for the automatic transmission with tiptronic shift BECAUSE it will have active fuel management. Not only will it have that...it will have 20 less hp and tq than the manual and 200lbs more metal behind the weight but will run a 13.2 vs a 13.4 for the manual. Loida refuses to drive a stick in fear of too much control. So my last manual car will be my mustang.
enorym
Today I died a little bit.

Wow there's a lot of gayity going on here.
MorlockPrime
I am also a fan and member of the true manual transmission club... gayity with the rest of ya.

Stavos...don't forget to open up that triple pane skylight for extra down force.

So Brad, if you get a 2011 Focus ST,what will happen to your Cougar?

Silvercup, I believe you mean cougay.

Hill start assist has been around longer than the Challenger. Nissan's had it for years.

After hearing about the leaked Xbox 360 update I did what any self respecting fanboy would and downloaded it immediately. Updating with the leaked dashboard causes your Xbox to catch fire and/or explode in addition to getting locked out of Xbox Live, but since my upstairs Xbox never connects anyway, I happily sacrificed it to the update. After a short update process, my dashboard jumped from 2.0.6717 to 2.0.7356, and immediately looked fanboy hot. The new avatars, unfortunately, were not included, so for now I'll just have to get off to the new interface until the final version drops in 3 weeks.
User Comments for 11-01-2008:
Lmae, why is that update taking longer then some acutal games are developed?
Stavos
There is a lot of new live features being added to the new experience. Including being able to stream nefilx movies instantly.

With Lisas recent transfer to a not-yet-open birthing center, her job has shifted from pulling babies out of vaginas all day to primarily paperwork. This sudden lack of seeing random vagina has put her in some kind of withdrawal phase, which involves alot of moping and whining (more than usual). The situation will only gets worse as the center is not scheduled to open for at least two more months, and that length of time with no vagina may very well kill her. What can you do to help? If you own or have access to a vagina, please consider donating 5 minutes of it's time to Lisa. She'll measure it and and ask you a few questions, then you'll be on your way, but the benefit she'll receive is immeasurable. I thank you in advance for your time.
User Comments for 10-30-2008:
I don't have any free vaginas at the moment, but I do know some Canadians. That's close enough right?
MorlockPrime
HAHA +1 for Prime. When I talked to Lisa on AIM she was very adamant about working from home and was not to be disrupted, However she was still on AIM so I continued to bother her. Typical first time work from homers. Soon they will slack like everyone else.
Stavos
I couldn't get my vagina to donate time so I scheduled a sex change on monday so she can see mine.
Tim
Outies reversed to innies don't count... after all she is the vagina expert she knows a real one when she sees it.

Xbox 360 Fan Boy
Less than 2 years ago I remember visiting Whineyho to check out his new Xbox 360. At the time I was fully against console gaming since I had a perfectly good (and free) computer to play games on, but I was impressed nonetheless. Eventually I decided to get one to use the built-in media center extender. Of course that meant I had to get one for my other TVs, which lead to the 3 Xbox empire. Suddenly surrounded by the consoles, my practicality was quickly defeated as the games and accessories for the system increased exponentially. I'm now a full-on raging fanboy ranting to everyone about why they need one immediately, especially with the new experience launching soon. My neighbors $400 PS3 which he uses exclusively as a Blu-Ray player, along with my brief 2 week ownership of a Wii have convinced me it's the best of the next gen consoles, and true to fanboy operating principles, I defend it like a rabid dog when someone suggests otherwise. Soulja Boy agrees with me and he's obviously got my back, so to PS3 and Wii fanboys, I say bring it.
User Comments for 10-27-2008:
Oddly enough I own both a Wii and PS3. I don't think i've played enough 360 to compare but I'm pretty happy with both the WII and the PS3. Also, I haven't had to buy any add-ons or anything like that for either the Wii or PS3. Eat it Fanboy!
MorlockPrime
Computer is still better, I Name noticed you didn't compare the 360 to a computer. Can't beat the Mouse/keyboard combo in FPS and RTS. However console games are great for racing that's about it.
Stavos
I would concur for the most part there Stavos. Hands down I'd sooner play those with a keyboard and mouse. If only I wasn't so lazy.
MorlockPrime
I guess the best benefit of console gaming is when you buy a game you know it will look and run how the wanted it to. Not like PC hoping it will run. Or needing one serious rig to get the full look of a game "ala crysis"
R1OT
Crysis looked and ran fine on my computer. Yet nothing like Crysis has been developed for PS3 or Xbox, guess you what to wait for PS4 or Xbox 3.0
Stavos
And how much money did you sink into that GFX card and processor? I think it was more then an Xbox360.
R1OT
I just got my 3rd 8800 gtx on ebay. By now I could have bought both a 360 and PS3, but they would have been way too ugly for the wife sitting on our multimedia cart. Meanwhile, my gaming PC sits inconspicuously in my office... and it's more compatible with pr0n.

Rating: 3 - Link to this Article 10-25-2008 NZXT Sentry LX Fan Controller View Webcam for 10-25-2008 4 COMMENTS
Sentry LX The NZXT Sentry LX fan controller caught my eye a few weeks ago, and try as I might I could not resist the urge to buy one. My fan setup was more than sufficient, but the animated lights and almost 5 inch screen was too much temptation, not to mention the nerd factor which was off the charts. Today it finally arrived and after setting it up I'm convinced it was the right thing to do. Beyond the pretty factor, each fan cranks up according to what I'm doing, keeping the case almost totally silent when idle. Intense file decompression sessions have my HDD RAID fan max out at 2,000 rpm, while gaming gets the two closest to my CPU/Video card close to 1600 each. Other than that all 4 sit at the silent 1,000 speed until needed. I'd say it's saving energy with all this fancy automation, but I'm sure the ultra-bright monitor offsets any savings I could hope to realize. Score one for EternalOne, this is most likely an anti-hippie mod.

Rating: 3 - Link to this Article 10-23-2008 New Hippie Mower View Webcam for 10-23-2008 6 COMMENTS
Lisas complaint about the cord on my mower the one time she mowed my yard was sufficient reason to upgrade to a cordless model. After selling my current model for $60 at my garage sale (which was still going strong 5 years later, contrary to previous predictions), I found a $200 cordless clearance model on Amazon. On arrival, the circuit board was damaged from shipping so I had to wait till lastnight for the replacement one. An hour later it was up and running and my first cut was a success. The battery meter still shows 3/4 charge, so I can easily get two mows per charge. It's definitely heavier than my corded model, probably due to the equivalent of 4 motorcycle batteries on board, but easier to get around and now Lisa approved. Hopefully this hippie mower will turn out to be just as dependable and effective as my last.
User Comments for 10-23-2008:
I jumped on the Electric mower band wagon last year after buying a craftsman that lasted 3 mows. I love my Toro electric.
Tim
Ironically Hippies don't use mowers, as it's a weapon of mass destruction to billions and billions of blades of grass. It's a dooms day machine!
Stavos
GRASS KILLERS!
enorym
Shallow and pedantic
MorlockPrime
I cover almost 3 acres on my lawn tractor. It comes in handy when sweeping/mulching leaves too. It gets about 80 mpg, so I'll be using it to commute to work when gas prices return to $5/gal. after the thaw. Good luck disposing those batteries in a year ;-)
Duane
And now Brad has a gas mower... How the hippies have fallen!

Frost Warning Today my frost warning light came on in my Cougar meaning the temperature was below 42 fahrenheit, and as it indicated the ground was covered in frost. The last time this light came on it kicked off 5 long months of freezing weather. With the Free Press promising snow this weekend now is a great time to move to Florida with Joseph.

Seriously there's always snow somewhere in your country can't argue that! and Yes I know about the whole South of Detroit thing. currently your North of me because I don't live in the city of Detroit
Stavos
What the hell's wrong with Canadians that live in Windsor. Windsor is south of Detroit. Windsor is not SOUTH of Farmington Hills or Redford. Southeast perhaps, but not south. Don't they sell maps at the gas stations over there aye?
MorlockPrime
And it's MOSTLY EAST at that you ass clowns!

Well my escape may be delayed but rest assured I'm still working on it.

It's true R10T. Sometimes in my haste I make mistakes. Like moving back to a state that is next to Canada. What the hell was I thinking?
MorlockPrime
At least in Ohio I have no direct connection to Canada. Either go over through New York or...*gasp* Michigan.
R1OT
True, however, if all the snow (of which there are mountains of it) in canada ever melts, you're sure to be destroyed due to the flatness of your land and the water's inevitable down / south heading.
MorlockPrime
Only the west side will be flooded since you Michganders assume that all of Ohio is flat.

Canadian Rock Band Not satisfied with infecting unsuspecting Michiganders, it was time to move my Rock Band addiction machine south (yes, south) to Windsor for some Canadian action, eh. What was scheduled to be a relaxing sleepover at Melindas house (with occasional girl-on-girl action) turned into a 10 hour Rock Band marathon fully hooking Ron on drums, Jenny on vocals, and Melinda/Adriano/Lisa on Guitar. I operated as a substitute when someone needed hydration or muscle relaxant. While my achievement points per minute rating was lower than I had hoped, the successful hooking of all involved assured additional sessions to further increase them. Normally I'd include photos but my boycott of Facebook prevents it.
User Comments for 10-18-2008:
That's because Canadians simply can't do anything right. How ever heard of a Canadian rock group? Don't even mention Rush, that was a gathering not a band.
Stavos
Dude.. you took pics.. now post them on your webpage biatch! It's not Facebook :-) And yes, Rush ROCKS my US friends! HAHAHAHAHA
