I think I'm going to lose it. As some of you may (or may not) know, I switched jobs at the beginning of the month. I was actually recruited away from my last job by this place, more money, better position, etc... I like working here, I'm on the top floor (43rd) of a building in Midtown, have a window that overlooks the East River and Queens with a fantastic view. The only problem is that I now share my office with someone else...

by Casey at 26 January, 2004 - 2:37 AM
I don't normally find TV the thing to do. Of all the things on TV I usually find the night time "news" shows to be an utter farce. 20/20 is usually one of the worst offenders. But here's an article all about what we shouldn't be afraid of. We need to further encourage 20/20's bold act of calm-mongering.

Only for the old school
by Casey at 17 January, 2004 - 6:27 AM
I must know the answer. Now that I have a house I'm thinking of buying something I've wanted since I was 13. I want a stand-up video arcade game of my very own, one in particular. The problem is I forgot the name of it about 6 years ago.

Here's a description: Wire frame graphics of a tunnel or "web" that would change shapes on successive levels. You controlled a "spider" that would crawl around the edges of the wire frame webs. The spider could shoot "down" to the center of the web at various harmful nasties that would emit from the center fo the web. Sometimes the nasties might make it to the outer edge of the web where they then too could crawl around and pursue your spider. If your spider touched any of the nasties, you died. 25 cents per three lives.

What the hell was the name of this game?

by ben at 16 January, 2004 - 8:05 AM
so i try to bring out thought provoking ideas, or at least think of them sometimes... but i can't for the life of me figure out the whole overarching connection... the thread as it were that connects all of the points.

don't get me wrong, they pretty much all agree with each other, in my head, but i can't find myself saying "life is..." sounds trite to me, to sum up all things in a sentence. i can't even make broad sweeping generalizations (hola brian!), like "electronic music is the future" or "liberals are all something or other" or whatever... what is life? it is pretty complicated, that's what it is... and no one bit seems to be more important than the other...

so i charge you, my EAnauts... this weekend, let one thing go... something that would irritate you, or make you mad or even make you violent... try just... letting it slide? see if it does anything...

did i just steal this idea from someone? i don't know

calling all snowboarders
by muhgcee at 15 January, 2004 - 9:37 AM
I am going on a snowboarding trip to New York (Ellicottville), about an hour south of Buffalo. I was originally going to go with DocScott, but his mom is getting major surgery that he needs to stay home for. So, as it stands now, I am going to go by myself. I think I will have fun anyway, but to cut down on the costs and to add to the fun of the trip, I am open to someone joining me. It is from Monday Jan 19 through Thursday or Friday Jan 22 or 23. I have a slopeside lodge, and it is about a 6-7 hour drive each way. Anyway, I do not strictly require half the money of the lodging, in fact anything close to free and up will get you in on the trip (but please be generous, I am not trying to profit here, just covering expenses). I hope I have found an interested party, if so post something on here and we will get in touch.
