Doomed To Buy Again

Posted by Stropp on December 12, 2013 I bought a Galaxy Note earlier in the year and started buying novels and such on the Kindle app. A few days ago I bought two novels as eBooks that I already own in paperback format. (The reason being that I moved house earlier in the year and have less space so physical books are somewhat limiting. And the paperbacks are in boxes in storage.) In the same way, I've also got on Steam at several times the last couple of years and bought (usually at a huge discount) some games that I also already own. Some of these were updated for modern PCs, but not all. Again, the reasoning was that it was too hard to go searching for the old disks, especially since some of the games were under $5. Now with the twentieth anniversary of Doom, I feel tempted to hit Steam and buy that. Of course, with Doom that was never on CD, that was a bunch of floppies and not many modern computers have those any more. But this has got me wondering, what do you do? Are you happy to buy a game, or any product for that matter, more than once; or are you someone who steadfastly refuses to buy anything a second time (unless it's physically broken?)

What I’ve Been Doing

Posted by Stropp on December 10, 2013 It's been a while, so I thought I might let you guys know what I've been up to. Aside from working, busy there, I've been getting a little gaming time in over the last few months.


I have pretty much cooled off on this one. Still occasionally get the urge to play but it doesn't last long once I've logged in.


I've been playing more Terraria than anything else. Mostly just digging and exploring and getting nuked by the imps once I've reached the Hell layer. I probably need to set a few goals to gear up before those layers.


I've done a little bit of Neverwinter. I have run into a snag with one of my characters by having completed all the quests up to level 15/16 by level 14 and now can't effectively beat the L16 bosses in a quest. And I'm not sure how to level without just grinding. It doesn't really capture me either. It just feels too linear.

World of Warcraft

I resubbed to WoW the other day, just out of boredom, and from reading Wilhelm Arcturus' account of his return to Warcraft. I started the patching process and got to playing but ran into driver problems. After updating the video drivers I found WoW started crashing my ADSL, probably due to the updating process. It crashed when updating when not playing, and also while playing. I've had this happen once or twice before with other games updating or downloading, but with WoW it seems a lot more persistent. I'm thinking seriously of a new computer, mine is six years old and no longer effectively plays newer games. (Bioshock Infinite crawls like a snail.) I'll probably update the modem at the same time.

Steam Games

I've spent a little on Steam sales over the last few months too. Bought a few early access games: Godus, some of the Zombie survival ones, and some others. The good ones seemed to also require a better PC, some didn't catch my attention, and others were perhaps too early access for me. Those look like they'll be good but not yet.

Wizardry Online

I started Wizardry Online when it first came out. Didn't really care much for it back then, but I was curious to see if it had improved. Nope. The worst thing was the slow typing quest text. It wouldn't have been so bad if there had been little of it, but it went on, and on, and on. So much so that the devs had a in-game joke with one character repeatedly interrupting for more text. Ugh. It's also very very empty.


Other than that, I've been doing a little reading. Slowly getting through A Dance With Dragons. About a third to go. It was hard getting into this one, but I'm hooked now and progressing faster. I like that some of the earlier characters are getting some time again. I was feeling like I missed Arry. Tyrion just keeps getting in deeper and deeper. But no expectations. Red Wedding anyone? It's been a tough year business wise. Really hard getting new clients. It feels at times nothing is working, but now it appears some of my efforts are paying off. I spent $4K on a marketing program for tech businesses which has been brilliant and I feel like things are happening because of it. Still just got to keep at it. And looking forward to the Christmas break. I'll still be available for work but I might leave the alarm off in the morning. As I mentioned, I'm strongly considering a new PC. I just have to decide if the budget will cope with it, and how much to spend. The place I'll be buying from has a number of models, but I'm deciding between a hex core with 16GB RAM and a hex core with 32GB. Frankly the 32 is very tempting, but budget might dictate the 16Meg instead. And of course, if I want 32 later it's just an upgrade (maybe just a couple of extra sticks.) Anyway, enjoy your holiday break and always remember: Winter is coming.  

Making Windows 8 Work For Me

Posted by Stropp on March 13, 2013 I installed Windows 8 a few months ago after my hard disk died. I needed to install another drive, and thought that since the W8 upgrade was on $48, that it would be worth upgrading (from Windows XP*.) I quickly discovered that Windows 8 wasn't as bad as I had read. I was getting the impression that the whole thing would force me into the new user interface experience. It didn't, not exactly. The computer always boots in to Metro, but I ended up removing every single square from the UI except for the desktop tile, and solely used the desktop with icons. I missed the Start menu, but not all that much. Until today. I didn't have an icon for Steam on the desktop, and tried to open it with the WinKey R(un) and typed steam. But it wasn't found. Yeah so much for that feature. You have to know exactly what the executable is called. So I spent $4.99 and bought the Start 8 app from Stardock. Installed it, no restart necessary, and there is the Start menu button in the task manager again. It took all of five minutes. Yay! Welcome back old friend. Oh, and look! There's Steam. * Yes I know. But I only tend to upgrade the OS after a catastrophe or on buying a new computer. The PC, and hard drive is and was 5 years old. My usual upgrade cycle is every 18 months. A lower income over the last couple of years extended that cycle.

Celebrex For Sale

Posted by Stropp on June 10, 2011

Celebrex For Sale, Time for another whinge about the ripoff pricing that Steam continues to inflict on Australian buyers.

Epogen For Sale

Posted by Stropp on March 23, 2011

Epogen For Sale, A while back I bought Fallout 3 and thoroughly enjoyed it, so I figured the latest incarnation (released some time ago I know) might be worth having a look at. Buy cheap Epogen no rx, I also tend to buy most of my games online these days through Steam, so naturally that's the first place I look, Epogen from canadian pharmacy. Epogen canada, mexico, india, And what do I find. Fallout New Vegas is priced at 89.95USD, herbal Epogen. Online buying Epogen hcl, Bloody hell.

With the Aussie dollar at parity with the USD, Epogen price, coupon, Epogen online cod, this is even more attractive. A few years ago, Epogen no prescription, After Epogen, one dollar was worth 60 US cents, which meant that 50USD game cost me around 85AUD, comprar en línea Epogen, comprar Epogen baratos. Epogen For Sale, As the Aussie has approached 1USD, that margin has dropped, so if today I bought a 50USD game, I'd be paying around 50AUD.

The only thing that I can think of is that they are detecting my IP and charging me Australian prices for some contractual reason, about Epogen. Epogen street price, Other, newer games like Dragon Age 2 aren't priced that high, cheap Epogen no rx, Epogen duration, so there must be some pressure from the publisher. But what really adds insult to injury is that Fallout New Vegas is being charged in US Dollars, Epogen class.
