Jarrett Heather's Journal
I took a long nap during lunch today. I haven't been able to clear all the cobwebs out of my brain just yet. I've got a Dew, but it's just not getting through to me.

I had a bad allergy attack this morning, so I took some Drixoral (dexbrompheniramine maleate and pseudoephedrine sulfate) and I've been in kind of a daze ever since. But I'm not sneezing my head off at least.

Good news. I finally got my car back last night.

Total cost of repair: $1,597.17 (ka-ching)

It seems to be running as good as ever. These are the first real repairs I've ever had to do for the Honda Civic, as it nears 150 thousand miles. Hopefully we won't have too many more problems. I decided not to get a new car any time soon, rather, to buy a HDTV home theater. I sit in front of the TV a lot more than I sit in the car anyways, right? More on that later.

Last night we went to David's. Lucas was home sick from Oracle, where he usually works from like seven at night until seven in the morning, or some craziness like that. So we hung out with them and Gavin, watched the Mummy, and had some lasagna. It was relaxing and good.

There's a River Cats game tonight that I could get free tickets for if I wanted, but I think I'd be better off relaxing at home, and maybe working on Juliecam.net some more.

Last night me and Josh hooked up for a game of Quake III: Team Arena. I've been having problems with my connection at home when trying to play online games, but last night it worked great. The game was more fun than frustrating for once, even though we were connected to a server in the UK. Team Arena is a fun game. If you like to play, you should drop me a line and you too can join in the fun. I plan to put up a dedicated server here at SacWeb sometime in the near future.

Harvester in Quake III: Team Arena.

Each opponent you kill spawns a skull in the middle of the map. Your mission is to gather as many of the enemy teams skulls as you can and turn them into the enemy base.

It just rocks.

Re: Quake III: TA

It's sorta like Team Fortress from earlier Quakes, you have an assigned identity and you play that on your team. For example there are: Engineers (they set up stationary guns that kick ass), Marines (have bitchen rocket launchers, turrett grenades and proximity mines), Cyborg, snipers,spys, even nurses to heal everyone! Its a mod of Capture the flag and the maps kick ass and the players are amongst the best anywhere. I believe it has been voted the best Quake mod there is. You really should check it out!

Lemme know what you think!

Re: Quake III: TA

Ah, ok, I know what you mean now! I have played on servers that were running mods similar to that. In fact, I think that I've played on a few Team Fortress servers before. Gut feeling - didn't like it too much. I didn't really play it enough to learn it well, but it was a little too slow-paced for me. It's a neat concept, though. I'm more into the fast-paced, blow things up kinda game.

Re: Quake III: TA

Yea, I can see your point, it is not as fast paced as straight deathmatch, which I dislike because being in a game with a couple of spawn campers can make me a crazy woman! I will say though, it is very rare that a game is slow. Maybe the ole' Team Fortress was, but WF is not. It has everything from radio cmds to team mates to really funny wav's of Homer Simpson yelling " Ahhhhh, burn it send it to hell". If you ever want to venture into WF let me know and Ill show you the ropes! My email is: GreggnJo@home.com.
