I am freakin addicted to Geometry Wars! And this is a video of a master at the game! There are so many times when he should have been overwhelmied but he skates by... I am at the 150K score range right now and I thouhgt that was intense this guys video goes to 2M and the highest score anywhere is 3.4M!
Ok time for Christmas reflections ... not going to get sappy this year. I am at peace. I am in love with my family and I have a good job and a fair amount of side work. Tonight my family is coming over to go on our traditional(now) christmas light viewing ride. Every year we load up in the back of my truck and take a trek around the nearby neighborhoods looking at Christmas lights. I am afraid J won't make it here this year and we will miss her. J get well!!!
Something I have done for quite a while now is to use Windows Remote Desktop to remote into my machine at home. So for the non-geek crowd, sitting at any computer on the internet I can bring up my desktop at home and do anything I could do at home, surf the net, Quickbooks, Autocad, anything...(I bet games would not work well) anyway. This is achieved by opening a port on my router. It's a bit scary The better way to do this is with a Virtual Private Network.
GEEK MODE! So you set up a VPN and then you can establish the computer you are on as part of the VPN then you will see the whole of the VPN right?! Hard to do and usually slow. Step in Hamachi. Zero config VPNs!!!! Ok this thing is waaaay cool! By establishing this VPN with Hamachi I can disable the port for Remote desktop and still be able to get to my machine. Even better, I can add my web server so I access it like a local network machine! How cool! Now expand that a little further... add my father and sister to the network, add my backup server and now they can back up to my backup server via the internet! I also can remotely fix their machines with ease! Sam likey! Expand a bit more? Sure why not... create a second subnet on your network and add your Xbox 360 or Xbox to it, now add your buddies to the VPN and suddenly you have a highly secured Xbox network. SWEET!
I have read the reviews, but I have not tried it yet. I will most likely give it a go this week sometime. So if you want to hold off I do not blame you, but this thing looks pretty damn sweet!
On a side note Angie found a prop I did not even know I wanted the other day and I am proud to say it will become one the prized props in my collection.
Angie I know you know what it's from anyone else want to place a guess?
I also just ordered one of these...
Any guesses? This one completes my collection for this movie!
