Lately, I have been way too involved in online communities. This has brought me much unneeded stress that I could have done without in my life. The drama that pushed me over the edge was the Yak VS. Coolit Cry cast. I fully respect Ryan’s decision not to release this cast. He is a friend and my major influence for starting this site. Let’s face it, it got very ugly and we stayed away completely from gaming. While it was very therapeutic, some things are not meant for everyone to hear. I am going to take a much needed break from online communities, message boards, listening to podcasts and podcasting. I have lost focus on the fun of gaming. It’s all about playing the games that you enjoy with friends online. I am going back to those roots. It could be a few weeks, months, not sure at this point. When I do come back, I will be refocused and ready to talk online gaming.
I got off to a sour start with some members at DHV. I am not the kind of person who easily makes friends and I didn’t mean to come off as a total asshole. I can’t believe I wrote a novel. However, it was the only way for me to get the poison out.
Finally, my site is fully fixed and now back in business. My site is 100% free from any hacks, virus, or malware thanks to Ryan! My site status on Google is now back to normal! Hell I even got iTunes now fully working again! You can subscribe to my podcast here. Since I have been busy with work and fixing my site this week, I haven’t had the time to do the next cast. However, it will be worth the wait! It will include a 30+ minute exclusive interview with Todd Harris from Hi-Rez Studios. There will be much discussion about Global Agenda, Tribes Ascend and Smite. Stay Tuned for more info.
Hey all, Ryan fixed the site but it is still being marked as an attack site by Google. You can tell your browser to ignore it for now until Google approves the new request. As you can see my site looks like shit, as I am in the process of giving my site a new face lift! Also, it’s now safe again to visit my site! Please note that some links and casts my be missing or broken. I hope to have everything the way I want to over by some time next week.
The wife and finally get to go back to Las Vegas! It’s been two years too long! However, we first will make a detour to visit family in Kansas City Kansas. We will be
stuck there for a few days and then head off to Sin City! The adults will get to play while our family there watches our two year old daughter. Nothing sickens me more when I see parents dragging their kids along in strollers. If you are under 21, then you have NO business to be in Vegas! I will be gone from April 20th and comming back home on May 2nd for those who care. The next show will be ether that week or next. Stay tuned to RSS, Twitter, or Facebook for updates! In the mean time to fill your Yak cravings and you know you have them! Why not listen at the Yak Bits Archive?
I gave the site a complete face lift. I felt that it was time with a New Year in the world of MMOs. With Rift getting closer, I will have much more to talk about. I strongly feel that Rift isn’t just another crap throw away free to play (pay to win) MMO. It has been a long time since a subscription based MMO has come along that feels like a complete game and isn’t total shit. Keep checking the site for frequent updates. I will be doing casts now on a weekly or bi-weekly basis, time permitting.
I will be putting off a new cast until next year, to do the craziness of the holidays. I will also be out of town visiting relatives for the first week of January. I am still in the process of getting one of owners from www.project1999.org to be a guest on my show.
