This is probably going to be the longest 1-2 weeks of my life. I sent my MacBook Pro in for repairs last Wednesday *cry* The night before I was still watching videos on my laptop, then I fell asleep while watching, and when I woke up the next day my laptop won’t turn on! I thought it was a simple case of drained battery. But unfortunately, after charging the battery for practically the whole day, my laptop still won’t start. So I will be laptop-less for the next week and so. And gosh, I’m totally realizing that I’ve been totally …read more
Well, it’s finally happened after a summer of speculation. Wayne Gretzky is stepping down as the head coach and director of hockey operations of the Phoenix Coyotes. I know that it’s probably best for the team since The Great One isn’t the best coach but it’s still a little sad. Gretzky feels that it’s time to move on and was hoping, as the team’s managing partner, that the bankruptcy proceedings would have been finished by now. I thought it would be decided by now as well and it’s pretty frustrating that the
For many years starting with the game’s release, the dreadlord Varimathras stood by the side of Lady Sylvanas in the Undercity acting like her right hand man. For players who haven’t unlocked the Battle at the Wrathgate and haven’t done the battle for Undercity such is still the case. But everyone who has done it knows the fate of the traitorous dreadlord, an epic fight where you go up in arms alongside Warchief Thrall and Lady Sylvanas themselves.
Through its September 2009 System Builder’s Marathon (SBM), Tom’s Hardware has managed to build a pretty powerful gaming PC—for only $650.

Here are the parts used in this build, all available from NewEgg. Prices are current as of this writing (September 24, 2009):

After 14 seasons in the NHL, goaltender Olaf Kolzig is hanging up his skates. He’s such a well-loved netminder that it’s sad to see him go but it has also been sad to see him on teams that didn’t allow him to really show his full potential for most of his career. He leaves behind an impressive set of statistics: He is ranked 21st in the NHL with 303 career wins

No longer do we have a top ten with perfected records. This week, Oklahoma bust into the number 10 spot with a blemished season. The rest of the AP top 10 are still unmarred after week three:
What’s significant to note is who is not there anymore. And really, that boils down to my favorite team to bash, USC.
Sorry, USC fans. This was supposed to be an easy week for you. The Trojans took on Washington, and after a week at Ohio State’s horseshoe, everyone thought that this would be a relaxing game. Only Matt Berkley couldn’t start, so …read more

Brett Favre made big news last year by moving from the Packers to the New York Jets to play football after he had announced another retirement. These retirement banquets get kind of tiresome.
Brett claims he never felt like he fit in with the team and his wife said he should stand up and make a speech to the team, which he finally did, but the team was not the Jets it was the Vikings this year.
The Jets made a run last year and then collapsed and missed the playoffs, in spite …read more
