My birthday, yes. How old am I now? 14-years-old. Am I born on the same day as my Dad? Yes. Is my Dad much older than I am? Very much so (mid-forties). And am I happy? Heck, yes. Did Darth Vader from Engadget give me Force Lighting cookies? By the means of the Force, yes!
During the course of today I will be checking in on Foursquare, going to have lunch with Mom, and just goofing off on my Twitter handle, @stefanetienne. I’m also currently writing another review, this time on a laptop. Which brings in something I’d like to share: NVIDIA has been having Optimus graphics card issues with Punkbuster, a program designed to rule out hackers in online games, like Modern Warfare 2, Bad Company 2, and possibly the upcoming Medal Of Honor (I’ll be playing the beta starting October 4th as gamertag Stef_LAPTOPMEMO).
Essentially, if you have an Optimus graphics card, Punkbuster thinks you’re hacking, and kicks you out of the game. I’ve re-created the issue, complained to Nvidia’s higher-up reps, and got to make sure their engineers work with Punkbuster. A fix will be outed in about a month of two. I also have a certain Alienware headed to my desk; that should be fun to use too.
I’ll also be starting a video series where my face appears (not frequently) and I’ll see how it goes. Oh, and I’m attending CES Preview 2011 in New York City in the business casual attire as much as CrunchGear’s John Biggs thinks I’ll get fried into a thousand bits, and possibly even CES 2011 Las Vegas itself. Anyways, just subscribe, follow me on Twitter (or the site), and leave a comment, as it really helps me out.
