End of an era

November 05, 2003

I was in the middle of completing level 6 on The Getaway, you know the one where you are supposed to lure the Triads to the Yorkies.

Well, Ginger decided to make a dash for her toy but got tangled up in the controller cord and pulled down my PS2 from a shelf. It landed with a magnificent crash, Ginger jumped 1 feet up in the air and I was presented with psychedelic patterns on the TV.

Needless to say, the PS2 is not working; the DVD-Rom is not opening. I will probably stab at it this weekend with a screw driver but my hopes are low. Another one bites the dust I guess.

In other news I got my first comment spam on some old posts. It's a bittersweet experience; I hate all forms of spam but I have been feeling left out until now.

    Very good!
    Mix in the pot pair of sad swedish blue eyes, poor clumsy Ginger girl, top it all up with the guilty complex, and voila!
    chumbo will probably get away with a flashy brand new silver PS2 2004!

    I always fall for your sad puppy face, and you know it, right?

    I'm thinking he and Ginger conspired the entire thing in an effort to get a new PS 2004! :)

    Invest in some wireless controllers next time. In fact, I have two that I have never used. Shall I send them to you?

    Ah well, WEE bit late now. If I manage to fix the PS2 this weekend I will gladly adopt the controls.

    Why are you not using them?

    To fix my PS2 from locking up only minutes after I put my game in, I did what everyone keeps sayin...clean the laser and adjust the white gear. My only problem is that I have two white gears and adjusting them both the same amount didn't do anything. Can anyone help a person who's gone a month w/o playin' and is gettin' antsy!?
