i despise the red wings

June 14, 2002 under Hockey, Life, Sports

Well the Wings won the Cup. Ugh. With the highest payroll in the NHL, they damn well should’ve won it. But that doesn’t explain what happened to the other high-priced teams like the Rangers, Flyers and Stars. Oh well. Within a couple years, the Wings will be in the same spot they were at in the eighties when all they had were Steve Yzerman, Glen Hanlon and no playoff hopes. Their bandwagon has had a long run, but I think it’s trip is coming to an end. I hope all those supposed Wings fans out there realize that Detroit was only known as “hockeytown” after they won their first cup from the nineties.

Warcraft 3 just went gold so I’ll be expecting a call on July 3 from the EB in the Fairview Mall here in Kitchener, informing me that my reserved copy is ready to be picked up. It should tide me over until Unreal Tournament 2003 is released at the end of the summer. Then I’ll be busy with UT2003, both playing it and developing mods and such for it.

A light weekend is ahead of Dena and I. My parents have gone back to Timmins and we’re all kicked in after their visit. A peaceful weekend is just what we need.

down in a hole

June 12, 2002 under Life

I am asked many questions throughout a given day. Few are general chit-chat or honest heart-felt types of questions. Most are asked in search of usable answers; probably an average of four or five per day excluding any work-related questions. This has been happening since I was around seven years old. I’m adored when I’m used for answers. I always do this without expecting recognition, even when the answers I give will generate income or credability for someone else. I dug myself a hole a long time ago that I’ll never get out of. Onward…

thinking of dadoo

June 5, 2002 under Hockey, Life, Sports

I probably won’t be able to update my .plan this weekend since my parents are coming down from Timmins for a visit. You’ve been warned…

Thoughts and well wishes go out to Pat‘s dad. I call him Dadoo. He had a mild heart attack last weekend, but should up and about and harrassing the general public once again in no time 😉

Me and Barry‘s mod for Unreal Tournament 2003 is set to begin development soon. Barry‘s been messing around with UnrealEd, the map editor that ships with Unreal Tournament. As for me, I’ve been familiarizing myself with UnrealScript; the proprietary programming language for developing modifictions of Unreal engine-based games. I’m also refreshing my 3D math skills. CS321 and MA305 were great courses that I took during my undergraduate studies at Lake State. We’re honing our mod skills on Unreal Tournament so that when Unreal Tournament 2003 is shipped on July 30, 2002 (assuming Digital Extremes doesn’t push back the release date), we’ll be ready. The mod shall be kewl 😉

[SIGH] Go ‘Canes.
