Well, my name is Josh. I'm 24 and live in So Cal. After school I just ended up taking over the family business of t-shirts & sign making. Its a cool job, I spend most of my day on the interwebs and "doing the design work". At least thats what I tell the other employees.
As far as games go, I love all different types and styles, although lately I've been stuck in shooter territory. The running joke with my friends is I always picked the losing console. So this generation I went out and bought all 3 new systems.
1. Super Mario Bros. 3
2. God of War
3. Uncharted: Drake's Fortune
4. Super Mario World
2. X-men 2
3. Grosse Point Blank
4. Dumb & Dumber
5. City of God
Things I hate:
2. Red Sox
3. slow drivers
4. fanboys (its just a machine to play games, you can enjoy them all)
5. stupidity in general
About 2 weeks ago I went to my parents house for dinner and had a great time seeing the grandparents, playing with the dogs, and just catching up at a BBQ. I got home at about 11:30 that night to find my living room under water. The water is still flowing out of the vents and the ceiling fan right on to my coffee table. The best part.... thats where my laptop always sits.I pick up my comp and water just starts pouring out, I just know its fucked. Finally the water stops and I get everything cleaned up the best I could and vowed to track down my landlord in the morning. Come to find out the AC busted a line on the roof and flowed into just my apt. I tell the landlord what happened and demand he compensate me for the laptop. He agrees to "take it to his guy to look at it". But not before giving me the run-around about technically he doesn't have to do anything according to the renters agreement. He give it back to me 3 days later and said it was a virus that shut down my comp and that there was no water damage in it. It worked for about 3 days before it completely took a shit. And now he won't do anything for me. Yeah, I know this is long but I had to rant. And if anyone could help out with my avatar problem, that would be great.
Kotaku just reported that the ban is only for MS employees that started it early. If you think about it, that's even kind of stupid. I would think one of the perks of working there is getting stuff before the masses. At least the 7 people who have don't have to worry now.
I've been a big fan of the site for awhile but I could never get the login problems solved until today. So my thanks goes out to Brad for getting that problem taken care of. Now if I could figure out whats wrong with my avatar I'll be set.
