When filters are Evil

Posted 8th July 2009 at 01:10 AM by Ashlann (Ashlann's Basket)

I work for a rather prominent Australian business largely involved in the medical field. They have very strict guidelines about internet usage, and endless 'Standard Operating Procedures' that outline these rules. IE is the browser supplied to us on all PCs, and very aggressive filters monitor our activities.

However, about 2 years ago I did something rather clever. No executable can be run without sysadmin rights. Somehow they overlooked applying this rule to our 'My Documents' folder...

Bugger

Posted 17th January 2013 at 04:24 PM by Ebonytears

I've been dealing, I've been coping...until today. Today I didn't cope and, because of that I spoke to my daughter in a way that I am ashamed of. So I'm putting this here so that some of that frustration can be vented. I don't have RL friends to 'have coffee with'. I know people don't believe me but it's true. The one person I considered a friend told me 'I don't have room in my life to deal with this' when I told her I have Lupus and I haven't heard from her since.

Lupus. Systemic...

Hey all you old buggers. I just saw BF4 is coming out o.0 There's a bit of a trip down memory lane.

If you're on Google+ make sure you say g'day and let me know you're an Older Gamer!

I've recently picked up a bit of support from ArtLine which is really wonderful - it's great to have some support and recognition out there in the big world!

Here's some new art for you to check out.

Retro Console Collecting - Part XII (Schizo Resurrects a Console From the Dead)

Posted 12th October 2013 at 10:25 AM by Schizo (Retro Console Collecting)

Welcome back for yet another installation of Retro Console Collecting - the blog that promises updates, and never delivers!

In my defense, I'll contend that I'm faster at posting blogs than Congress is at passing a budget! Oh hey, did I just make a political joke? I must really be scraping the bottom of the barrel here.

Anyway, for those of you who are long time readers (and haven't hung yourselves yet), you may remember a few years back I managed to win an Ebay auction...

Wurm Online, a new passion

Most of my gaming life I've been a one game person.. One game at a time, I mean. And now in my late 30's I'm no different from early 20's.

If it's an engaging and submersive game, it can keep me going for years. Like Diablo II or Ultima Online. The times in between was filled with brief interludes (except for a 5 year black hole created by WoW) with short term but VERY enjoyable games like Dungeon...
