Random Terrain's Tetraternarium



I'm an Amazon associate again!

Posted by Random Terrain, in Personal_Stuff 28 February 2014 · 211 views

I was dropped by Amazon years ago because I live in North Carolina, but now that the fighting is over , I'm an Amazon associate again!

5 Things You're Probably Doing Wrong In The Shower

Posted by Random Terrain, in Internet_Related, Personal_Stuff 30 January 2014 · 277 views

Check out this Huffington Post article:
 
5 Things You're Probably Doing Wrong In The Shower
 
"You're Not Using a Handheld Shower Head" should have been added to the list. I can't believe that people in civilized societies (who have extra money) are still using shower heads that stay stuck up on the wall. If you take the water where you need...


Fallout 3 Spoilers: Benefits of Blowing Up Megaton

Posted by Random Terrain, in Xbox 360 16 January 2014 · 234 views

By now anyone who wanted to play Fallout 3 probably has, but just in case, don't read this if you haven't played and hate spoilers.
 
I've played through the main missions around 4 times now. I kept replaying to see what would happen when making different choices. This time I decided to blow up Megaton and live in the nicer Tenpenny Tower suite for...


I Love Useful Videos on the Internet

Posted by Random Terrain, in Personal_Stuff, Xbox 360, Internet_Related 15 January 2014 · 187 views

Seems like there is a video on the Internet to help with almost anything you can think of. Around a week ago, I used this video to help me replace a bathroom fan:

Over a year ago, the controller that came with my Xbox 360 developed a squeaky trigger and...


Netflix Has Improved

Posted by Random Terrain, in Personal_Stuff, TV_and_Movie_Related_Topics, Internet_Related 09 December 2013 · 301 views

I had Netflix 4 or 5 years ago and things have improved since then. The player in the browser on my PC seems to be a lot more professional and user-friendly than it used to be. I also have a different setup than I had back then, so I'm not just limited to using a PC.
 
I wirelessly connected my Blu-ray player to the Internet tonight with the little U...

Here's a link to the store page:

Here's a link to a review of the game:

I hope this won't be the first and last game of mine to get into the AtariAge store. I'd like to make more games, including a semi-...


Secret Area in Iron Brigade - Survival: Settlement

Posted by Random Terrain, in Xbox 360 20 September 2013 · 500 views

Is this considered a glitch, a secret area, or a hidden area? Whatever it's called, the video below that I made last night using a crappy video capture card shows how you can get up on the hill that surrounds a lot of the playfield in the Survival: Settlement mission on Mars. I get up on the hill multiple times in this video to show that it can be done an...


I'm Getting Really Tired of Working on My Web Site

Posted by Random Terrain, in batari_Basic_(Atari_2600), RandomTerrain.com 30 May 2013 · 477 views

Seems like links and YouTube videos go dead faster than you can blink. You have to check videos by hand and links by hand too since link checkers suck at telling you when a link redirects to a new page.Then there's the Google problem. Google tells web site owners to be natural and that you shouldn't make your pages for them, but then they contradi...


How to Get Rid of the "Use Your Real Name" YouTube Popup

Posted by Random Terrain, in Internet_Related 14 May 2013 · 3,249 views

Sometimes that irritating popup has a link that will let you close it, but most of the time it's not there. If you're sick of that thing popping up almost every time you go to watch a video, all you need is the Firefox add-on Adblock Plus   and the filter below. If you don't already have Adblock Plus, add it to Firefox, then add this custom fi...


Finished Wave 100 on Iron Brigade - Survival: Settlement (Solo)

Posted by Random Terrain, in Xbox 360 14 April 2013 · 809 views

I previously finished wave 100 on Survival: Hospital (Solo) with one thing to protect and wave 100 on Survival: Swamp (Solo) with two things to protect, but now I miraculously finished 100 waves on Survival: Settlement (Solo) with three things to protect. I was starting to think I'd never finish it. Protecting three things for 100 waves (single-player...


Finished Wave 100 on Iron Brigade - Survival: Swamp (Solo)

Posted by Random Terrain, in Xbox 360 01 April 2013 · 986 views

I previously finished wave 100 on Survival: Hospital (Solo) , but now I finally did it on Survival: Swamp (Solo).

Like I said last time, since I'll probably forget, I'll post what I used in case I stop playing for a while and want to play again later:

Chassis:
Honeychurch Mk IV

Legs:
Speedy Biped Legs

Weapons:
Muerte Fiesta Numero 6

Jay Leno Makes Me Sick

Posted by Random Terrain, in TV_and_Movie_Related_Topics 20 March 2013 · 351 views

Remember when Jay Leno ruined NBC's prime-time lineup and Conan O'Brien's shot at the Tonight Show with the crappy Jay Leno Show   at 10 p.m.? Jay Leno screwed Conan O'Brien and wrecked the schedule, screwing various other shows, including the Law and Order  franchise. I heard that Jay Leno has been recently taking shots at NBC executives...


Finished Wave 100 on Iron Brigade - Survival: Hospital (Solo)

Posted by Random Terrain, in Xbox 360 08 March 2013 · 3,590 views

I've been playing Iron Brigade   on the Xbox 360 and finished all of the missions, including the Mars stuff, so I've been seeing how far I can get on the survival missions. At around 2:30 this morning, I got to level 100 on Survival: Hospital with the hospital health bar down to around 25 percent. I didn't know that the mission ended at 100. W...


It Was Too Big

Posted by Random Terrain, in RandomTerrain.com 09 February 2013 · 322 views

Moving RT's Favorite Quotes to one page seemed like a good idea, but it was just too big. I had to put everything back the way it was:www.randomterrain.com/favorite-quotes.html   Random Terrain  __


Facebook Is Killing My Web Site

Posted by Random Terrain, in RandomTerrain.com 02 February 2013 · 622 views

Seems like hardly anyone has their own web sites anymore. They just plop their asses on Facebook. The problem with that is every link to your web site from Facebook doesn't seem to count according to Google. Here's an example:www.randomterrain.com/personal-lakeside-amusement-park.html  There are 74 links to that page from Facebook, but it only has...


Goodbye Quotation Pages

Posted by Random Terrain, in RandomTerrain.com 30 January 2013 · 198 views

I killed more pages at my web site today. I put all of the favorite quotations on one page   and deleted the individual pages, so now there is only one page to deal with instead of around 40. Let's see what Google does with that.Random Terrain  __


I am a Murderer (of Web Pages)

Posted by Random Terrain, in RandomTerrain.com 26 January 2013 · 274 views

I murdered many pages at my web site yesterday. Their Google PageRank was very low and that dropped the PageRank of the rest of the pages, so I killed them in the hopes that my other pages will rise back up and I'll get more visitors. I might bring back the Atari 2600 game release date pages in the future when I have more time to work on them, but the...


Flashing Screen on Plants vs. Zombies

Posted by Random Terrain, in Personal_Stuff, Game_Design_Opinions 12 January 2013 · 576 views

I finally got around to playing Plants vs. Zombies on the Xbox 360. It was on the disc with  Peggle and Zuma that I got many months ago (probably around February of 2012). I thought it was pretty fun until I got to the part where they decided to rape my eyeballs by flashing the screen. TV Tropes mentions it:tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/VideoGame/PlantsV...


The Adventures of Siltchy Stilch

Posted by Random Terrain, in batari_Basic_(Atari_2600) 09 January 2013 · 302 views

When I started to fall asleep yesterday, the name Siltchy Stilch  popped into my head. I thought it might be a good name for a character in a book or a video game. Since I don't write books, I'll see if I can use the name in a future batari Basic   game for the Atari 2600.Random Terrain  __


Goodbye 2012

Posted by Random Terrain, in batari_Basic_(Atari_2600), Personal_Stuff 31 December 2012 · 455 views

I didn't get much done in 2012, thanks to Cymbalta  . It did a great job eliminating the neuropathy pain in my feet, but it made me tired all of the time and it also caused me to yawn a lot. After taking it most of the year, I decided to stop. It took about 2 months for the withdrawal symptoms to fade away. Lucky, I only had "brain zaps" and d...
