Are current consoles truly HD?

For the last 3 years now I'm sure most people have heard all the hype about Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 making games go HD. Well, now that both consoles have been out for a decent amount of time now I'm going to see how well this promise has been upheld by mentioning the native resolutions and framerates of games that have appeared on these systems:

Assassin's Creed:
Both consoles - 720p with both consoles suffering framerate issues thus failing to meet the 720p standard of 60 frames per second.

GTA 4:
Xbox 360 - 720p
Playstation 3 - 1152x640

"And now for a taste of things to come..."

So here we go, the very first post of my new blog series. I'll warn you right now dear reader, this editorial is meant to spread the knowledge about movies that have been deemed by myself, and possibly a couple of other people, as either horrible pieces of shit or a "must-see". Now, in this process your favorite movie may be thoroughly trashed and thrown onto the coals. So, if you're still reading along, here's a list and some samples of what to expect in future posts.


Teleprompter Personalities....

It's obvious that some television personalities are just talking heads getting fed lines, jokes, and in some cases personalities via teleprompter. However, while I was gone this past weekend Oprah finally got revealed to be a teleprompter-fed retard which was a great delight to see when I got home. Hopefully this will help people see how much this type of shit happens in the larger media. Seriously, most people know MTV is like this, but I also contend that most cable news channels are like this as well.

The decline of Brick and Mortar

Ok, recently I went to a special sale as an electronics store that was closed to the public hoping that I could possibly find a few good deals. Unfortunately what I found was that when comparing the prices of hardware between stores and online retailers, even with the given discount and a $50 gift card I won in a drawing they still had the higher price when it came to the overwhelming majority of computers and electronics.

Server Woes

I had some messages from people saying that they weren't getting emails from the site. I looked into this and noticed that email had stopped working on September 10, 2008. I contacted Zee (our host) about the issue and he mentioned that the server had been rebooted by another admin. After looking into the issue a little deeper, he realized that not only was email not working - but mysql was jacked up as well. Shortly after he noticed this, the site got really wacky and I was afraid that we'd be restoring from backups today. Luckily Zee is the man - so that doesn't have to happen.

The World Ends Tomorrow and You May Die!* (AKA: The greatest Social Engineering scheme of all time.)

While this may not be technology related, I do feel that in some respects this does have a decent amount to do with Social Engineering and effects everybody. One of the biggest things in American life that is organized religion. With that in mind, what I (and several other people within SX have seen) is that most churches have operated to profit in one form or another whether it be financially or by notoriety.

Now in Texas.

Well, I got here on the August 6th. So far I'm not used to the heat. Also I don't even have a house yet. I'm staying with friends. Other than that I dunno what to say other than, that the food is fucking awesome. First time I ever ate at a churches chicken my taste buds exploded. I still haven't ate a what'dburger or went to a IMAX theater but it's on my list. Also, the women here are fucking hot as hell. Never had such a extensive selection before. Other than that... Give me a little while more so, that I can get some things setup, then I will have some time to do some work.

Lack of Spirit

Some people have told me that they feel the HDB is pointless. The whole idea behind the HDB is to tell the stories of the past for those who don't know them. Many people don't realize where the hacking/underground/whatever-you-want-to-call-it community has come from, and I feel that it's important to know the roots. Just like a good math teacher will tell you about the history of mathematics, it seems that people should know the history of computer hackers. I feel many people have a lack of spirit as described in
