Alien Breed Obliteration

Well, it has been a while since I last posted. Sorry about that–things have been crazy busy.

  1. SQL Reporting Services has me beaten down. I can’t seem to get the silly thing to pass authentication to the query the DB server. Keeps generating an error that states that my user name is “null”. I’ve done quite a bit of research on it–and am frustrated. I posted on the microsoft newsgroups…if that doesn’t work, I guess I’ll have to call support. This is just stupid–this kind of operation should be expected!
  2. We are working to get the house finished. I’ve hung all the trim, finished the cedar on the front porch and stained it, started painting the doors and trim. All those little details. It’s almost ready for sale.
  3. That all, and some travel here and there…my wife’s sister is almost ready to have a baby…it just never ends.
  4. Oh yeah, I’m becoming a developer…just because. Well, I’ve always wanted to do some development, but I’m kinda forced into it by business needs. If I don’t do all of this database work, report creation, client development, and so forth it just won’t get done. And nothing gets better.


In the meantime, you–gentle reader–must download Alien Breed Obliteration and play it. I never played the Amiga versions. Some are mad when rap this is fun. Except that I’m stuck on the 3rd level. I’m supposed to escape in an air duct, but I can’t find it before the level splodes up.

Go get it.

Don’t forget to use the cheat keys if you’re lame like me. K for keys, L for lives, A for ammo, and M for money.

Speaking of the Amiga, I hauled out my A500 last night and started to set it up. I want to CrossDOS some of my old stories off of it, but I couldn’t find the disks. I think they’re buried in the garage. If I can find them (and still read them) and there is actually anything-thing interesting on it, I’ll post them here.
