Over a year since I’ve last posted. That’s one hell of a lag. o_o
Not much new. I’ve a 360, a new computer, aged a year, opened my eyes to a whole bunch of games out there, written a number of fan fictions, some of which you may find at http://www.starcraft.org (search for RyeMcCrory!) and some of which you may find in the Fan Fiction section at http://www.sc2armory.com. No, I’m not Korean. I am a rabid StarCraft fan, though. I’m shocked that many SC players out there lose interest in one of the greatest games of all time, simply because they’ve been confined to UMS (use map settings, a game type where anything can happen, quite literally) and Blizzard maps!
http://www.broodwarmaps.net Go there. Now. The mappers over there are highly skilled and good people, albeit from Europe. 😛
I’ll be updating this blog, hopefully, from time to time as I have more to say.
Hawksbury is a city maybe two or three hours west of Montreal. It’s in Ontario. Where I went, we had no running water or electricity, so the land was basically a campsite owned by my uncle. It was still a lot of fun. I spent the entire day down on the shore, fishing with my brother. I’m glad someone finally introduced me into the ‘laziest sport on Earth’, because it’s a lot of fun. I caught eight fish, all Perch except one Sunfish, and my brother caught a nice Bass and a Perch. We let them all go after we caught them, as they were all too small to eat. The Bass my uncle caught was at least a foot long, though, but as we couldn’t catch any more, we released it too.
The normally beautiful countryside is even more so at night. Standing on one of the rolling hills of Hawksbury, staring up at the stars and the far off lights of a city, is absolutely breathtaking. I truly did enjoy myself, and got to wish my uncle a happy 65th birthday, too. I have some pictures, but they’re all on my father’s camera, so I’ll have to wait for them to be given to me before I stick them here.
There ya go, Kevin, I finally updated.
Well, I officially passed Sec III. That’s Grade 9 to all you non-Québecers out there. Got a 92% on the final French exam, and a 75% on the English one. Does anyone else see something wrong with this picture?
Started playing Clone Campaigns again, and a friend of mine got me into Dawn of War. Space Marines <3.
It’s now the third week of summer holiday for me, and I’ve been looking for a job, but so far, no luck. People ’round where I live are reluctant to hire a 15-year-old, and the lawn mowing buisiness isn’t going so well. I also refuse to mow the lawns of seperatists, of which there are a lot out here.
StarCraft 2 was announced, and that brought a lot of joy to my house. I wrote an article at http://www.plasmafire.org about it. Speaking of PFO, Mr Lin hasn’t been on much. I find that odd since it’s summer.
Sweet! I’ve finally found a way to properly take screenshots of StarCraft ingame. Before, every shot I took in every game came out all distorted, wrong colours, random holes in the pic, etc. Not I just convert the pristine PCX image to a PNG. Behold, shots from the exhilirating match from merely a half hour before! 😀
Top pic is my friends large collection of carriers, and the second is my ground force.
Quite a bit of writing is done.
That’s my latest fanfic, but you can check out others by me near the lower right corner just after the last line of the story. I have maybe 4-5 other fanfics completed.
