    That’s no moon…

    There’s a new World of Warcraft Star Wars game out next year, Star Wars The Old Republic. And it’s a lot like World of Warcraft, a lot of people playing in the same world going on quests together and dancing, etc. I’ve never found enough time to get into one of those kind of games, in fact I rarely find enough time to drive around running people down in Grand Theft Auto these days – I should get back to that. Anyway, I’m sure there will be a whole host of Star Wars Kid type memes next year when the game comes out but in the meantime if this is the kind of game that ticks your boxes then check out www.swtor-uk.com

    It’s full of news about the game along with screenshots, videos and interviews and has a forum to discuss all the rumours. It’s kind of a niche market but seeing as a lot of people tend to stumble onto this site via google from places like Bulgaria, Brazil and Hungary (and hello to the Guatemalans following my tales) I thought I’d post this up and send you all over there.

    Personally, I’ve always found the dancing in these games rather amusing, I’d be interested to see Darth Vader’s dance in the game.

    For full disclosure I can’t use my huge influence over the internet without admitting that the site is run by my brother Owen. And what a fine job he has done with it. Check it out now.

    Internet connections

    I’ve been having a lot of connection problems recently. Last weekend the router stopped working for 4 days because of settings on the modem, I don’t know why the modem decided to change its settings but it succeeded in frustrating me for a long weekend. I was so relieved when I fixed it and then Friday evening the line went down for a couple of hours. I tried to log on to watch the England v Jamaica game on Saturday (having woken up at 5.45am to do so) and found that the modem stopped working again and would work even with a restart. I spent the entire duration of the match on the phone to Verizon which ended in them telling me they’d send me a replacement modem. I thought I’d try resetting the modem today and it all seems fine, I do hate the modem though.

    In other news my free copy of the new Tomb Raider game has arrived (its a bundle with my new graphics card) but I can’t install it yet as it requires 10gb of hard drive space. I remember when Doom 2 was released it was regarded as a huge game at 12mb.

    Oh and its hot here, really hot. As in 95-100 degrees every day. Looks like summer has arrived just in time for the World Cup – only 4 days to go!

    The end of dialup

    Good win for England this morning, managed to see it via webcam.

    I’m almost out of the dark ages with the internet – I’ll have my very own 3 mb broadband connection next week if all goes to plan. In the meantime I’ve had to get AOL as my previous ISP trial ran out and AOL being as difficult as they can won’t let me send mail from my freeserve account. I can still receive it but I won’t be sending much this week so no-one gets confused and replaces their address book entries as has happened before when I’ve used temporary email.
