December 20th Update – Underground News
Hey guys, I wanted to give a quick update on whats new so far with the blog, and what will happen between now and the new year.
First item – I got rid of the VersatileNinja youtube account. If you want to see the new youtube account, you can go to http://www.youtube.com/gamedexterity.
I am in the process of uploading new and old videos, and during this process I have learnt that its hard to start over again, but in a way it has given me newfound freedom to redo tutorials to make them better and even clearer so all is not lost.
The big problem is I don’t have the best upload speed in the world, so expect videos to be slowly migrated over the course of the next few days, weeks, and months. The new account will be hipper, edgier, and more provocative. 🙂
Second item – Today I received an email from Dropbox that my public links has been suspended. Damn, I guess hosting all the patches on there for MW2, L4D 2, and Killing Floor was not a good idea after all. >_> Eventually, I will get around to uploading these patches to another file hosting site. So if you are looking for a specific link, it will be down for the time being until I fix it (probably later tonight).
Third item – I have 10 Blackcat invites that I think I have to spend between now and the end of the month. Blackcats is a private game torrent site, and it is a great community. The problem is it is invite only, with the notion that the people that are invited are trusted people, and not random strangers (*cough* undercover agents *cough*).
With that said, if you think you deserve a blackcat invite, please send me an e-mail at versatileninja [at] yahoo.com and we can discuss further. If you are a tunngle gamer, even better as you will get higher priority. If not, tell me about your history, and maybe we can share IM contacts and discuss further.
Fourth item – Underground newsletter will be worked on sometime after the holidays between myself and Voltaire. If you are not on it, please subscribe.
Fifth item – I am officially on holidays starting on 12/23/09 and I will not be at work until January 4th, 2010. During this time, I will be relaxing and visiting family and other events. I expect to work on the 4th and 5th chapter of the Underground Book and finish it off (at least my part). We shall see after the holidays what will happen next.
Very unlikely I will be playing games during the holidays, or making any new video tutorials. I will continue posting here as usual so all will be good.
Sixth item – I went out today to a local Blockbuster movie store that was closing down, and I ended up buying a copy of Watchmen DVD. Preview price was $14.99, but with 67% off it was $5.23 with tax. I have an interesting story about this experience, and it will show up in an STD article for sure. It will be a good read.
Seventh item – Xmas is almost here, and sometime this week (perhaps Monday), I will have a special post for those tech savvy parents/shoppers out there who should think twice about buying electronic game consoles or gadgets until you hear about my provocative advice. I can’t wait to write it, its definitely unconventional thinking.
This is all I got. If you are an underground blog author, please write in the comment what your activities are as I know time to time people want to know if you are still alive or not. Thanks! – Versatile
