Brother Blake - LoL Music

This guy seems to have sprung up out of nowhere for the LoL community after the Ahri patch. He made an awesome song for Ahri, and needs a lot more support. If Plentakill can make songs in their style, then Brother Blake needs quite a bit more attention.

First Impressions: Dota 2.

As I'm sure many have heard by now, Dota 2 is the 'sequel' (no less, improvement) on the Warcraft 3 mod 'DotA' (Defence of the Ancients.)

Personally, I was introduced into the MOBA environment through League of Legends; a now popular moba-style game where you choose a champion based on their abilities, and fight in teams to destroy the enemy's nexus.

I love League of Legends, so within that mindset, I went into playing Dota 2 with an open mind. (I was invited for the beta just recently, yay!) I had never played Dota before, and as such, was completely oblivious to just how different the 2 games were.

To put it simply, my impression of both games is...

League of Legends:
  • Noob-friendly shop 
  • Easy to get into for a jump in game whenever you have the time
  • Early-on, the community seems nice enough (Later on, they're... not so nice.)
  • New Champions every other week, champion tweaks within the same updates.
Dota 2:
  • The shop seemed to cluttered at first before I got the hang of it.
  • At this point, I've been having 10-20 minute queues, which I'm not too happy about.
  • I haven't experienced the community too much so far, but from the games I've been in, there are not ragers; even if a teammate quits or someone does horrible. (me)
  • I don't know what content will change, or will be added, but I look forward to the full release!

Once again, this is coming from a newer generation of MOBA player(s), so take what I say with a grain of salt. I look forward to getting to know this game from the inside out the way I've learned League of Legends. To those of you still hoping for a beta key, don't forget to sign up for the Survey; Dota 2 Survey.

Good luck on the battlefields, everyone.

So I haven't been here for awhile...

Goodness, thats been a tough week. Transitioning back into the routine has been tough, especially since calculus just got about 20x harder... (I hate you single/double derivatives. Graphing you... I'd rather throw myself off a 3 story building. Twice.)
Our school finally got new computers! :D Dell XPS... With awesome specs, especially since our school isn't the richest around...
Basic Specifications:
8GB DDR3 ram
Intel core i5
Radeon HD 6570
24" 1920x1200 screens (hellyeah)
USB 3.0 ports
I've been having my fun with that toy over the week, playing lots of Minecraft, Mabinogi, League of Legends, etc. on it. So happy... :D

Anyways, I have a few treasures that I've found over the week that I plan on displaying over the next few days, hopefully I get the time in between games and matches to get to that... ;)

I've been transitioning back into the school routine for the past week, but I promise to dig up some Internet treasures over this next one.

GoDaddy Changed their Minds.

Thanks Sona, in the previous post's comment section.,news-13664.html

Seems that one of the most popular domain name registrar, GoDaddy, has finally resigned their support to the SOPA bill. This was done after losing 70,000+ domain names due to the posts via reddit, and

GoDaddy has been a huge supporter of the SOPA bill, as it is an advocate against piracy and 'support and stability of the internet', but soon changed it's stance as it found out what kind of impact it had on their company.

It's quite unfortunate really, as the actions and response of the company has seemed to be more "damage control, more than a change in heart" - Tom's Guide

GoDaddy... Breaking the law to keep their business.

Oh Goodness.

Looks like GoDaddy dun goofed yet again. GoDaddy had been an open supporter of the SOPA bill since it had gone in for voting, and due to it, have now lost over 70,000 domain names to competitors in the process. GoDaddy attempted to reduce the amount of transfers by returning incomplete WhoIs information to competitors, delaying the transfer process. As it is, this is an illegal practice under ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers), and as such eventually gave in to releasing the information that was supposed to rightly be released.

For those that love dubstep, here's a little treat.

If you don't like dubstep, then please... go back to your classical, and stop hating on the community that does. I'd rather not live in a world of conformity.

GoDaddy is going 'NoDaddy'!

Over the course of the week, just over 21,000 domain names switched out from GoDaddy, as the aforementioned company had given their support to the SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) bill.

When Reddit's community came onto the fact that GoDaddy supported this (ludicrous) bill, They began to boycott. It led to the founding of Boycott GoDaddy, a site to amass the disapproval of the company, and their anti-internet stances.
