A day at the beach

Posted 4th October 2009 at 04:08 AM by Ashlann (Ashlann's Basket)

It was a lovely day here in Perth today: my dad is in town for a few days on his way home from Singapore, so we took Jasmine down to a local beach (near Rockingham) - it's a beautiful natural headland with a lot of wild-life.

Here's a couple of pictures from the day - you can check out the gallery for the rest.

My little angel, Jasmine

Bumbee takes a break from active Admin duty

Posted 2nd October 2009 at 10:31 PM by Cailith (The Admin Blog)

Our Moderator Liaison Administrator, Bumbee, has been fortunate enough to be shifting for his work to a fantastic new location. While this is great news, it means that he will have very little time to devote to TOG for the next few months, so he has decided to retire from active Admin status for the time being.

We thank him for all his efforts to date, and look forward to when we can staple his Admin wings back on again when real life settles down for him again!

Final Score uK| Win by 40 Tickets

For my first ladder match for a while I felt I did fairly well. I think we "as a team" have only played on this map one other time - we did learn a lot that game and took it into this one.

Round 1 - PAC - uK| Cap out 128-0
First round was a lot of hustle and bustle as we defended our first flag. Maddog2204 had strategically placed a spawn beacon down and we didn't spawn on that until absolutely necessary - and it really...

The New Paperweight - it's great!

PC woes. Oh, we've all been there, I know. I'm just so utterly fed up with it!

A month or so back, I put in a new GPU & PSU (that's a gizmit and a hoodad for those of you not fluent with the lingo) - the system booted fine, but would not reboot without a BIOS flash.

Despite all advice & best wishes from the TOG think-tank, web searches, tips from Deep Blue and Bill Gates Himself, that issue still remains. The BIOS utterly vanishes the minute it achieves a successful...

Got sportsmanship?

The Setting
I play Call of Duty 4 as my main game, and I play in two squads, Wotan in the GameArena Ladder and Zeus in the CyberGamer Ladder. Last night I played in a CG ladder match with Zeus in which we were defending our spot on the ladder. The challenger was evo. a clan that we scrim against on a somewhat regular basis - they win more than they lose against us.

CG Ladder is Search & Destroy style, with 5 players on each team, where one team has to plant the bomb and...
