    I played TF2 some, it's pretty fun. Mostly now I'm playing Pokémon.

    We had racing on Saturday, three crashes in the second last race of the evening (scratch, 22 riders). 7+ riders down, and 4 off in ambulances >_< (just had to say it somewhere.. its still rattling my nerves O_O)

    We had a pretty solid stack 2 weeks ago in Canberra at the Bundahdome, one broken collarbone, one wrist. The odd thing was it was in the Italian pursuit at the end of the night, 2 laps in, so the pace was building but not crazy, and it wasn't on the straight where that team's changes were taking place. Guess someone just overlapped a wheel at the wrong time.

    PS If I have to Google what TF2 is, it probably means I haven't played it. Yet.

    Whatever it is.

    TF2 is a gaming classic:

    I got a rundown on that crash on Friday night. Didn't sound too good.

    I never got into CS or WOW. But, I did play about 8 of the Final Fantasy. Basically up to X-2. Then it started getting weird.

    Taught my cat how to fetch today.
    Taras - :noun. 1. Typically an overweight has-been that can sometimes be seen pootling around a velodrome on an old Look KG 233.

    What is the cat fetching? And how did you teach it? Have 2 cats that really, really need to start earning their keep.

    Thoughts of living down there were plenty. I actually didnt even care for the resort that much, just the weather/beach/sun/food. If I could get a reliable internet connection I could probably sneak down for the winter. Aguascalientes has a fast track I hear


    I use to play TF1 and CS. D2 was my entire high school education. Lost touch with games after that thank god, they were a real time/life suck for me.

    FWIW I'm the youngest of four, and grew up in a household that grudgingly, reluctantly had one television that only used very infrequently and no computers until all us kids had moved out. Sometimes I feel like I missed out on something I would have enjoyed, but, y'know, I did ride bikes a lot.

    I've been gaming since I was like 12, but I just started playing TF2 3 years ago. It's never too late to start

    There's a new game called Overwatch that is launching early next year. If you want to get on the ground floor of a big game, that'd probably be the one to pick. I've signed up for the Beta when it launches.

    I think the average gamer's age is over 30. So, if you consider all of the kids and teenagers as part of that, that means that there are just as many players over 40...like me

    I started playing GTAV. Was never a GTA fan but the online play for this one drew me in.

    We've taught ours to sit to get a spot of milk. But fetching is awesome.

    I thought we were the only ones who taught a cat to sit for food. Our old cat we had when growing up was taught to sit for her bowl and would only move for the food when the bowl was tapped and then placed on the ground... Could hover the bowl in front of her and she wouldn't budge.

    We've got 2 cats, have taught them how to treat us with absolute disdain and destroy furniture.

    Which is why we've got a couple of years left with ratty couches and armchairs. Next cats will be better Dammit...

    I'm wondering if there's an equivalent to Godwin's law for cats on the internet.

    Aaaand, these are PC games? Wifey has an overseas posting for 6 months that I can't accompany her on, and I'm sensing an opportunity....
