Welcome to The blog of whall

Come on in and stay a while… laugh a little. Maybe even think. Read more...

Hi, This is Wayne. This is my site, my stuff, my blog, blahblahblah. The site itself is powered by WordPress and the Scary Little theme. I thought it was cool, and I still do.

Hey folks, thanx for stopping by.  Did you get that thing I sent you? 

Best. political. post. ever.

Many don’t like the political speak.  Some live off of it.  No matter which camp you’re in, you’ll likely enjoy Shiny’s Takeout’s Political Corner: November Reign

I’m just now realizing that this and next month marks my 3rd anniversary of blogging (7/26/05) and my 1st anniversary of Stuff you don’t want to MISC summaries (6/17/07).  Yeah yeah, this is only the 50th edition, as I skipped a couple of weeks when I was weak, so we’ll just call it even and call July the anniversary for both.  

Also, I just hit 2000 comments not too long ago.  The 2500th comment isn’t too far away (some people I read celebrate that).

Any suggestions on what I should do?  You can assume the following:

  • No budget
  • No time
  • No talent
  • No interest from the 99.999% of the people on the planet.

With all this going for me, I’m pumped!  Let me know what you think!

The Wii.  It’s back.

I think I mentioned some time back that our Wii started having issues reading disks.  We kept trying to play games for a couple of days, and we found that if we turn the Wii off and back on, it would read a disk.  But if we ejected the disk it would not read the next one.  When it got so bad we couldn’t stand it (about 3 days later), we called in and were informed that our warranty had expired 3 days ago.

Fortunately, the guy on the phone was not only nice but empowered.  He processed our RMA and we, like good little consumers, held onto the console for much longer than we should, unable to really let it go even with it’s problems.  The RMA was good for 3 months, and so we held.  And held.  Finally I decided I should go ahead and send it in, and WHAMMO we got it back in less than a week!  I couldn’t believe it!

And now that it’s back, I can go for my all-important Guitar Hero goals.  My first goal is to be ranked < 10,000, and then 5,000 and then 1,000.  This is out of (at time of writing) 703,000 or so people on the system.

I think my goals are realistic.  For example, this most recent bump of about 1,000 place points was due to the following three songs:

bump up of whallify at guitarhero.com

I got 325K for beating ONE on Expert (before, I beat One on PS2, which doesn’t participate in online scoring).  I beat my Medium Barracude by 1,000 and I beat my Medium Through Fire And Flames by a good 80k.  

There are still forty (40) songs in the game that aren’t uploaded to guitar hero.com, so I’m feeling pretty good – individual song scores range from 100-400k each.  Some of the songs missing were just bad uploads when I played them, so I just need to replay them.

Here’s where I’m at, the 10000th place score, and the 1000th place score.
