A WAN accelerator just showed up at my office. This could get interesting.

It's a 1U server with a bunch of network interfaces that is supposed to make the connection between the two of our data centers perform better.

THQ Humble Bundle added a couple of new games today... one of them is Titan Quest, which I think is still one of the best Diablo style click-n-loot games out there.

Fuck yeah sea king.

(I say this as a person who got free games, not as a fan of TQ, because I haven't played it before.)

Trying to sketch out in my mind how the family room will look when it's ready. The sofa, loveseat, and recliner we want to move down from the living room are pretty big, as is the DLP TV, and we want to put a Christmas tree up down there. Maybe I'm having trouble seeing it because of all the shit we have down there right now...

Saints Row The Third is goddamned hilarious.

It's definitely a GTA clone, and it is serious business for the characters, but everything is so over the top that the game doesn't take itself seriously. Like, okay. You need to rescue a dude who's being held prisoner by the leaders of the Morningstar. You find this dude, and he's (unwillingly) in one of those S&M pony costumes.. except the gang is on the other side of the door so you have to leave. Solution?

Hook pony-guy up to a rickshaw and ride him the hell out. While the gang does the same thing to follow you... so you wind up on a "high-speed" chase through the streets of the city. And shooting the other "ponies" has them blow up like cars.
