She beat me? She beat ME? - Elf M. Sternberg
She beat me? She beat ME?
Well, I disabled the on-board ethernet and put in an IBM E-100 card I happened to have lying around (doesn't everyone have miscellaneous parts lying in a big box somewhere?) and Omaha and I managed to get some quality time in killing each other-- in Quake 4 Deathmatch.

I seem to do better in small-box zones. We played in a big open field, and Omaha's love of the missle launcher outshone my one-shot-one-kill sniping with the rail gun. She actually beat me, 10-to-4.

I think I'd better practice some more. Or just not wander out into the open too often.

Current Mood: amused amused

Glad you got a usable gaming machine again, Elf.

Yeah, me too. For some definition of "useable." It's not as fast as the old machine, but it cost less than half and I was able to leverage a lot of the existing hardware (audio, ethernet, case, hard drives, externals) to get at least the file server line up and running.

Haven't booted into windows yet. I wonder what it'll do?

Oh, come on. Doesn't every good geek have at least one of his spice that is a bigger geek than he is, at least in some way? :) :) :)

Oh, Omaha's got her geek on in a lot of ways. But I'm the FPS player in the house, so it was kind of embarassing to have her beat me so handily.

Load up a map with four bots. Use nothing but the rail. Repeat until perfected.

In Q3A, I usually play on "The Longest Yard" to 20 frags, and the first thing I grab that isn't armor is the railgun. I try to optimize my accuracy. If I haven't obtained at least a 70% hit ratio, I regard myself as doing poorly.
