General Chat / NEW! Halo Terminology
« on: January 06, 2007, 02:57:11 pm »
Just when you think you know everything there is to know and have heard it all, there's something new!

I first heard this term used by Hanoverfist during a game to describe a enemy tactics as it applies to Halo:

prairie dogging

A phenomenon that occurs in cubicle-filled office buildings. Whenever there's a loud sound or other unusual occurrence, everyone pops up to look over the walls to see what's happening.   :lol:  :P  

Why is that funny? I don't know but I about fell out of my chair.  :lol:

>Your Cats 18! Wow, thats pretty impressive. I knew of a cat that lived to be 25, and two others lived till there 20's.

The Vet said her particular breeds lifespan is avg. 12-14yrs, She is quite spry usually but she sometimes rests for a few days at a time anymore but she will definitely make 20+ IMO, short of an bad encounter with a German Shepard.  :wink:

We always avoid places like this.

>I like your name story, I just thought it meant Your Dead with a little pazzaze. lol
Madam, you are eggzactly correct. "If you see me..."

Holy Cow PK! <Jim> SMOKIN'!!! </Jim>

$3800 clams, semolians, green backs, plastic bucks, no pain no gain.  :lol: Im perspective I gave about that for just the parts for my first 8088XT with 640k, RGB card'n monitor, 10 meg HD ect.
The really nice thing about technology is the power you can get for the bucks. Impressive.
I looked at all those links, thinking I need that mouse. I think that's the one Hanoverfist has. He swears by it (not at).

omg U still have a working CPM machine?  I've never even seen it running somewhere :)

Yea, with a whopping 64K of ram "k"  :lol:  But you know what. I did everything I ever needed at the time, Wordstar (woo hoo) Visicalc, heck I even had a Maneseman Tally pinwheel (LQ) printer! Quite the setup and never, I mean never crashed.  2 180k floppy drives, what more does a man need.... The amber screen has phosphor dots the size of baseballs LOL They used a fine screen mesh (just like a window screen) to keep down the phosphor tracers as you types across the screen.

Yea, I started pre 8088. Uri Dead- the old guy

Howdy all ya'all. (that's how we say "hello" in Kentuckiana)  :)

Some have asked where/how I got the name. The roots of the name run deep... I was but a mere lad, knee high to a grasshopper when it all came about. "Uri Dead", Uri was a character played by Dan Akroid of the vintage SnL fame (Saturday Night Live) The "skit" was with Steve Martin and they were "two swinging Chekoslavakians" and needed a putty knife to scrape the dog poopie from their shoes. OK, I know I have lost most of you here by now as this was 30 years ago. But a classic none the same.

The "Dead" was added in the mid 80's when I was a file courier for some of there early crack groups. Yea, yea I was cranking out the bits on the phone lines like there was no tommorow at a whopping 1700cps on a Courier9600 HST and a 80286! I still have my first Eagle2E CPM machine that still boots. aaah, the good old days. Not!

Anywho.. I have great fun on the BC servers and app to follow.

Other: I have never worked for or been associated with the FBI, CIA or Secret Service but I do have a 18yr old cat.  Just so you know.  :?

MMmmmmm...  Blackberry pie Yummy.    :P

Congratz Hanoverfist! I saw you were in the tryout area last night for a loooooong time!  8) So now that you're officially in I have to ask you, "What's the secret handshake and password"? wink wink, nudge nudge.  :lol:

Congratulations dude.
