Deflexion game...

Once I saw this I fell in love. Deflexion game, it has Lasers, thats all I need to say.

No really, it has lasers. This is the setup for the Laser boardgame.
In the Deflexion game, each player has an assortment of djeds, pyramids and obelisks. These pieces either reflect the laser beam or block it (or both depending on which side is hit). If a piece blocks the beam it is classed as destroyed and removed from the board. Each player takes it in turn to move or rotate one of their pieces, after their move they can fire their laser to see what it now hits.

Very, Very interesting game. great idea. and for $ 37.95 (US) not a bad buy. I must purchase this game, or if someone out there wants to buy for me or give to my PayPal for a donation so I could get it, that would be super fantastic!

Check out the Source I read this from:
or from the actuall website that has a short cgi demo of the board game.

Also, while reading on theres an post about a Laser "Chess" style game. Looks great too, but it is not for sale. ;( Oh well, great thoughts.
Check it out here: LASER CHESS

"The phone fell off the table..." : : Part 1

I was walking around yesterday doing my thing, when I was stopped and apporached by a service tech. Well I was more so tracked down and held. Thus the exchange of communication took place.
ST = Service Tech
Me = Me

ST: "Chad! I need a new phone, mine doesnt work. It drops calls left and right, I've fucking (with a feedup tone) had it with that damn phone...."
Me: "? Ok"
ST: "Well you need to get me a new one. Lets put it this way, I don't have a phone."
Me: {chuckling} "Ok?!"

So, I walk to the Service Bay where the tech work. He shows me his fabulous phone.

Me: "Hahahahah..."
ST: "Yea, I fucking had it with the phone so I picked it up and threw it. and I'll tell ya, their made like how they work."
Me: "Well, I can get you a replacement phone, I'm not sure I can get the warranty to cover this one."
ST: "huh? I don't care I just need to have the phone so I can use the net. I dont know why I need the phone to use the net."
Me: "Well it was the wonderfull way they setup the network here with the phones, why I don't know, but they did."
ST: "Well get me up and running..."
Me: "Can do. and you know what, I'll take the phone with me and try to get the warranty, I'll tell them it fell off the table and was ran over by a tech on 'accident'. So, we'll see in the mean time I'll just hook you up straight to the network."
ST: "Ok, sounds good. Thanks"

So, here are some more images for the phone that "Fell off the table"

See Just like New!

Got the phone put back, well somewhat back together. There are a few missing pieces, small but missing. Next step phone call for the warranty. I will try to record (if I can) the conversation when getting the new phone. To post with the next part.

Can you tell me how to....

A Salesman walks into my office today and jogged my head. This is the what he asked about...

Saleman: "Hey, can you tell me how to get past blocked sites?"
Me:"? ? ?"
Salesman: "Ya, you know you go to a site and its blocked."
Me(interupting him): "You mean, go to a site your not suppose to while at work?"
SM: "Yes, can you show me how to get past that?"
Me: "No. I have to have restrictions for site so people do not go where their not suppose to be."
SM: "No, not for here, I don't work here anymore."
Me: "!?"
SM: "Yea, I want to know how to get around the blocker."
Me: "No, I can't show you how to do that?!"

I barely know this guy, let alone did I know he no longer worked here, Why on earth would I tell him how to get around another businesses site blocker. Regardless of what he wanted to look at. I'm just dumb founded by this. Truely...
