[RAGE] Microsoft Sucks!


Ok so I have all of my xbox 360 stuff going on [check the forums ;)] and I turned my 360 on today popped in my 64mb card because I was cheap and didnt buy a harddrive. Tried to update the software so I can access xbox live when I go get my subscription and guess what… “You need to insert a harddrive or memory card with atleast 128mb of free memory to update your xbox live application” or something like that. WTF Microsoft really w…t…f?

Ok so I cant get on xbox live because it cant get the files. But wait there is more! It did have enough space to download this shity half assed looking overlay thing that looks like it is the retarded child of the wii and ps2 combined. I miss my old dashboard 🙁

In any event I had to order a harddrive off of ebay for the damn 360 so I can play xbox live and would at this point like to tell microsoft to suck a nut because you suck

I should buy a mac -.-


Where was Dark?!?!?

Welcome one and welcome all! Welcome to Darks Carnival!

Heh, ok guys I have been away for far to long, but not without good reason!  For starters I got a job! That means I can buy new consoles and equipment! Also I finally upgraded to my new custom built PC! Actually its time for a story, because I should have had this PC up and running for about 3 months. When I fist got all the parts from newegg I was going to make a PC building tutorial, however I didn’t have my camera and I was so excited that I built it in just under 2 hours, but at the time I had no operating system disc so it sat there doing nothing for 2 weeks until I got a Vista 64 Bit Ultimate CD and CD key. All went well, I downloaded steam and counter-strike: source started up and joined a server, BAM, Crash. Turns out the card was bad, then I RMA’ed it and got another one, It worked… for about 5 days then the same problem happened again. So now I’m waiting for it to return, in the mean time I bought a temporary card and I like it alot more. More information on this card fiasco later but for now I’m just glad to be back!

State Farm Spam….[Not email spam]

[svgallery name=”statefarm”]

Ok so I check the mail the other day and there are 4 envolopes that are exactly the same except for the return address. Open them up and it is 4 different letters from 4 different agents all 4 working for state farm. WTF Why are they sending me 4 letters all on the same day? Anyone else ever seen something like this? Post in the comments if you have.

China Blocks Youtube…again

Techdirt has a post about china blocking youtube and its really interesting. The government has filters on all the networks so in reality they can block any and all sites they want. Australia was [is?] trying to get a filtering system in place for block adult content but who is to say they wont take it a step further and block any sites that are not kid friendly or what ever. Am I the only one who thinks we should just let the internet be open from filters? Damn you over controlling governments!!!!!!!!!

Lots of headlines today about how China has blocked access to YouTube, apparently because of some videos posted by a Tibetan exile group. Of course, this isn’t the first time China’s blocked the site — it did so about a year ago, again because of videos related to Tibet. Around the same time, it also started enforcing laws against non-government owned video-sharing sites, and took action against more than 50 of them. This latest block shouldn’t be particularly surprising to anybody, but it stands as a reminder that the flow of outside information into China on the internet is like a faucet the government can shut off at any point. The only real question is when did the country lift last year’s YouTube block?

Palm OS is dead…My Treo sobs

My first PDA was a PalmOS device. My first real smartphone was PalmOS. Ever since I have been into computers I have know palmOS so this is sad news that Palm is no longer going to make devices with the wonderful mobile operating system. While it will live on in the centro for a while they wont make any new devices. So after 13 years a operating system that has been adapted and upgraded from its former [colorless shell] it comes to a slow painful death.

Oh and my TREO 650 is in on suicide watch right now….lets hope it pulls through!


[On a side note visit THIS link to see the upgrades to palm over the years]

Comcast does not care…

Ok so recently I contacted comcast for Dark at there “comcast cares” or @comcastcares on twitter. I sent them an email. They reply and once again I send a response. Since then they have not replied. So wtf is going on comcast? Do you guys just suck to much to respond to the emails that bring issues to your attention or what?

I for one am glad I have a ISP that cares about there customers. If only comcast could really care.
