My parents have just bought a new microwave. On the front, it actually has a button labelled "Chaos Defrost".

I so want to press that button...

Okay, this will probably mostly appeal to those who like anime (in particular parodies thereof). Although there are various geek references too.

Anyway, there's a game called Billy versus Snakeman. Which is in no-way a parody of a popular anime involving spiky-haired ninja and creepy other ninja who has a snake fetish*.

There's also no subsections involving detergents**. Or books that are unexpectedly deadly when combined with writing implements***. I think they have something involving self-referencing MMOs**** just introduced, and they're working on a faux-pirate bit*****

Anyway, if you want some random fun, and want to help me out, feel free to start playing this game- if you use the link I'm about to provide, and stick with the game past a certain point, I get some small shinies.

Also, if you join the village I'm in (Berserk Village- the Village Hidden in Rage), I get to help you out too.

Here we go: Billy Vs. SNAKEMAN

You are The Hermit

Prudence, Caution, Deliberation.

The Hermit points to all things hidden, such as knowledge and inspiration,hidden enemies. The illumination is from within, and retirement from participation in current events.

The Hermit is a card of introspection, analysis and, well, virginity. You do not desire to socialize; the card indicates, instead, a desire for peace and solitude. You prefer to take the time to think, organize, ruminate, take stock. There may be feelings of frustration and discontent but these feelings eventually lead to enlightenment, illumination, clarity.

The Hermit represents a wise, inspirational person, friend, teacher, therapist. This a person who can shine a light on things that were previously mysterious and confusing.

Discussing stuff with a coworker in another department, and the fact that I'm the only IT guy in tomorrow came up...

CO-WORKER: So tomorrow you're your own boss then?

ME: I'm always my own boss. Just some days I take more suggestions.

Your Score: Dune

Your world is 59% Sophisticated, 72% Unconventional, and 39% Intense!

You live in the worlds of Dune. Preferably the last two books in the series, in terms of timeline, as that's when things are genuinely intelligent, probable, and weird as hell... but not too intense. Not intense, I should add, because you're probably a Bene Gesserit or trained by one, which means you've learned to take anything and everything in stride. You can probably move faster than we can see, comprehend a complex obstacle and the potential solutions at a glance, and stop your heart with a thought. But you also probably won't ever fall in love, listen to music, or do anything else which will evoke too much of that inconvenient thing called emotion. But hey! To you it's probably worth it to be able to move any muscle in your body at will or traverse the collected memories of your ancestors.

As SysAdmin at work, today I sent out the following email to all the staff...

"Until further notice, all requests for support from the IT department must be submitted in triplicate, using the form found in \dev\null [note: This was a hyperlink, although it didn't actually point anywhere real].

Thankyou for your time."

So far two people have fallen for it, including my mother, who really should know better...

I had this random thought a while back, whilst in a sillier than normal mood, and came up with a film list for my Sluagh spy/assassin/loremaster (the dream of the evil mastermind of the sort who could and would do his own dirty work).

So, without further ado, I present Nachtherr's top films:

What Dreams May Come (And Kill You)

Scream (But Quietly Please)

Nightmare on Your Street

I Know What You Did Last Summer. And Last Winter, Last Month, Yesterday, and This Morning.

Requiem For A Dream Who Poked His Nose In Somewhere He Shouldn't Have.

I'm in need of a Star Wars icon. Specifically non-silly droid. There will be silly captions affixed. If anyone can help, I'd be grateful.

Real update coming at some point, when I have spare energy.

Blood Bowl

[ profile] matgb got me playing my first game of Blood Bowl in ages. It may come as no surprise to anyone that knows me that I feileded an undead team, against his orcs
I won.

Now, this is moderately unusual in itself, although my tactic of knocking over players and then jumping on their heads until they were injured was quite effective. As was Mat's habit of screwing up dice rolls.

It's only when we got to the end of the first half (all we had time for), that we discovered, after counting the 4 injured/dead players and the 4 KO'd players of his, that he still had 4 remaining on the pitch. Which meant he'd actually fielded a team that had one too many players on the pitch. And still lost. Badly.

I shall now glee a little, at least until the next time he successfully one ups me :-)

I recently rediscovered an old mp3- a song called Dragon Road which will amuse anyone who's played D&D. And probably a fair few other people as well. I thought I'd share the lyrics.

Incidentally, if anyone knows who it's by, I'd love to know...

It occurs to me that reading through the Bastard Operator From Hell 2006 archives is probably not going to help me develop the right attitude for dealing with users....

On the other hand, it is hella funny.

Silly me

After having done some extended roleplaying as my Amenti, it was faintly disturbing to have someone sign onto MSN with the nick "Sutekh" immediately afterwards...

The Sith Apprentice.

Tis quite funny :-)
