  • Quick, tell us a joke!
    A pirate walks into a bar with a steering wheel on his pants, a peg leg and a parrot on his shoulder. The bartender says, "Hey, you've got a steering wheel on your pants."

    The pirate says, "Arrrr, I know. It's driving me nuts."

  1. Storm streams nightly (most nights) PUBG sessions. (8-ish to 11-ish)


    WARNING: Foul language & horrible gameplay likely.

    Thanks kazi! No worries if you can’t make it tonight. We play at a minimum, six nights a week. 🤪

    Let's Talk Battle Royale

    I'm going to start streaming my evening rounds. We usually play around 8:30 PM to 11:00 PM, Eastern time. https://mixer.com/StormSurge You may only hear myself talking, as I think my buddies will have to authorize their voice to be streamed as well and I'm sure they won't want to have to deal with that. 🙄 Tune in if you can & I'll be happy to answer any questions here while I play (action on screen permitting).

    Maybe if we had enough interest, we could start an Atari.IO league?? 😃

    Fire Call!

    If I showed the rest of my desk/office, you wouldn’t be saying that. 😀

    Fire Call!

    I thought it may be interesting to share what happens when my pager goes off for a fire call. Thankfully, I've only had false alarms to respond to, aside from two minor car accidents. (Since October 2017). We average one call per week. Thankfully, most of them are during the day, but there have been the occasional middle of the night calls. (The pager also goes off for any ambulance calls, which I only assist if the EMTs need help lifting the stretcher onto the ambulance boat.) Technically, I only need to respond to every call while officially on call (we're split into teams that are on call for two weeks at a time, eliminating the need for 20 people to show up for a false alarm), but because I live so close to the fire house and that I want the practice of putting my gear on & driving the truck, I make it a point to go to every call. (Again, there's not that many calls, so it's no big deal.) The pager tones don't sound like Station 51's tones but it's still pretty startling when it goes off. Anyway, here's the video. Let me know if you have any questions!

    Finally! My Modded Xbox!

    Update on my sweet modded Xbox. I had sent it back not long after I received it in 2017 to have a Star Wars theme installed. (Main menu background image & every song from seven soundtracks loaded that play randomly at the menu screen.) I would post another video however, it's on its way back to the modder. I fired it up to try out the current High Score Challenge and discovered that the colors were all off. (I initially thought there was something wrong with the TV I had it connected to, but I tried it with another TV & the same problems were present.) It could be any number of issues but the modder is going to take care of it for me. All I have to pay is the shipping. He's a good guy.

    I’ve always been intrigued by this but have yet to try it out. Thanks for the review!!

    Where I Moved To

    Every Sunday morning, we take all the trucks out to road test them, check the air packs, generators & all kinds of other stuff. Every other Sunday, we empty the tanks & refill them to keep the water fresh & make sure the pumps are working. This morning was VERY cold (it was snowing when we headed out) & I didn’t put any of my gear on. I’m just starting to regain the feeling in my fingers. 😀 Just thought I’d share this with you guys. Maybe I’ll do a more detailed post about this process someday. (I was filling in for someone today, I only have to do this when my shift is active, which is six weeks in between my two weeks.)

    It’s almost like Gillette has a interest in shortening the life of a razor blade. 🤔🙃😜

    A headset is necessary but I may have some Gold trial codes laying around for you.

    Awesome kazi! I still have my 360 hooked up too, with a plethora of games in my backlog. If ever want to give PUBG a shot, let me know. I’d be happy to play with you.
