Resistance: Fall of Man On Superhuman

June 30, 2008

When I first ran into Resistance: Fall of Man, I was a little sceptical. I saw some footage, and picked up the box in the store. But, still on the edge. What tipped me to buying it was that it was made by Insomniac Games. Those guys just know what they’re doing, so how badly could they mess it up. Well, they didn’t. Resistance: Fall of Man is a great game and I’m eagerly waiting the second instalment.

But, the reason for this post is just a little bit of chest beating. I beat the thing on the most difficult difficulty setting: Superhuman. Rather tough in parts, but Hard prepared me fairly well. Quite frankly, I was surprised just how easy the final fight was.

Now if only Sony would have reasonable information requirements when signing up for on-line play. Call me paranoid, but I’m not giving them my physical address. American corps have too tragic of a history dealing with people’s private data for me to give that up to them. Especially given the new “laws” in the US and the fact that they don’t need it. If they want my physical location enough to pick the closest server they can geo-locate from my IP address.

Large MKV (h264) File to PS3 MP4

Unfortunately, the PS3 doesn’t support 64-bits for large files. So, transcoding to something else was what I used to do for files larger than 4G. Which is rather slow on my older computer. Finally getting somewhat irritated with this, I did some poking and found out about mkvmerge. This is the my solution.

Obesity in the Workplace

June 3, 2008

So, staying in line with the politically incorrect, here’s a post on Obesity. Yahoo news really seems to (at least) point to articles that fuel the preposterous activist agenda. Here is an article on weight related discrimination in the world place. Gee, looks affecting people and there careers. What a surprise.

Luckily, there’s only a couple quotes that I need from the article to show its absurdity.
