Anyone Know Who has My Copy of Quake 4?

Box Shot Quake 4As people may or may not know I recently moved. One thing that I can’t find is my copy of Quake 4. I have reason to believe that I lent it to someone. But for the life of me I can’t remember who.

It was not in the box that had my games in it and I have torn the house apart looking for it. I am pretty sure I lent it out. If that is you then let me know. There are not many people that I would have lent it to, but even they are not fessing up.

That is it, if you have my copy of Quake 4 then please let me know, it is driving me insane not knowing where it is. I am positive that it has not been lost, in case you are wondering.

Man Survives by Eating Frogs!

I can’t believe it after my blog the other day about the increase in frog numbers at home… I find this!

This guy survives in the Australian outback by eating frogs! In case you had not guessed I love frogs, they are my favourite animals. Given that if I was in a survival situation I might do anything.

“I ate the leeches raw, straight out of the dam, grasshoppers I just ate them,”

“But the only thing I really sort of had to cook was the frogs which [I] slipped them onto a bit of wire and stuck the wire on top of my humpy, let the sun dry them out a fair bit until they were a bit crispy and then just ate them.”

Not quite sure that the technique described above constitutes “cooking” but I suppose that is as close as he could get. I don’t know that French chefs will be scrambling for his talents though. I feel sorry for the skewered frogs… I only hope they were not the green ones.

I Purchased Two Domain Names

Well this something that I have been meaning to blog about for the past week! As you know my family lost our dog Amos last Friday and in the middle of that I had purchased two domain names. So you might understand why I have not blogged about it until now. That does not however change the fact that I am very excited about it.

Basically, I purchased two domain names through GoDaddy. I will say a few things about GoDaddy though and one is that the biggest problem with the site was that is was very confusing. That comes from the simple fact that they offer so many services and products. Somehow in my brain all these products etc, got mashed up and it took me some time to decipher all the information. But with a little effort I worked it out. Basically you have to register as a user, or I think they called it creating an account, that was fairly easy. Then I was off to search for a domain name.

Just as a side note there is a very interesting article on Dennis Forbes’ Blog about domain names, their popularity and their availability based of what has already been registered and therefore available. Really worth the read, if for nothing else but curiosity.

So I search for the name and found it it was available and added it to my “cart”. It is then that I was bombarded with more options than you care to poke a stick at! This was difficult for someone that has never done it. Anyways I ended up purchasing an extra option of making the registration private. And I was twenty odd dollars worse off. That’s for a year.

At this stage I am not telling you what the domains are, only that you should keep reading and all will become apparent. I will also say that it has something to do with a very imminent podcast; that is if my co-host decides not to take on anymore projects! The time is coming when I should talk about him also…
