Oh, man... you Grinches!!!

Merry Christmas to all and a very happy, healthy and prosperous new year as well - even the Grinches who pee on my Wheaties and iPad!

It is a good thing I keep my iPad hidden away when not in use so nobody can find it and do terrible things to it.

Encore for my classic from last year:

'Twas the night after Christmas, when all through the site
Not a poster was typing, not even a Snake
the Battle Cat was stuffed by the misses with hair
In hopes that his hairballs would soon bring gasps for air
The posters were nestled snug in their chairs
While dreams of Mac Games danced ‘neath their hairs
And DaveyJJ with his maple leaf and Frost with his star,
Wished each other Merry Birthmas, knowing more fun was not far
When on Frost's keyboard there arose such a clatter
After he sprung from his bed to see what was the matter.
Away to the Moderator's Window he flew like a flash
clicked Warn and Flag Spammer and a Russian's hopes were soon dashed
The monitor on his half-rested face did glow,
Brightened the sneer over another spammer laid low.
When, what to his startled eyes should appear
But an army of WoW Gold sellers, who DDoSed him and cheered.
What hairball flew by that was so fuzzy and fat
They knew in a moment it must be the Battle Cat.
More rapid than Frigidman and Tuncer he came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and called the Moderators by name:
Now! Whaleman, now! Brixton, now! Tesseract and Eric,
“On! Davey, on! Frost, on! macdude and Janich!”
To the top of the page! To the top left bar!
Now ban away! Ban away! Ban away all!
As dead sprites before the RAM buffer vanish
The copper of the army’s fat pipes did tarnish
So back ‘cross the ocean the spammers flew
Each conspicuously named for a country– even the Vatican too.
And then in a twinkling, Tuncer appeared with a spark
To open the Mac Game Store with sales before dark!
As the earliest posters began to arise
Cheap Mac Games tempted them and danced ‘fore their eyes!
With Aspyr, and Feral, and Virtual Programming too
Soon hard drives were filling with gaming so true!
He laughed as he sold them in spite of Steam
But his servers were taxed and lo they did scream.
With a wink of an eye and a twist of his head
Frigidman let Tuncer know there was nothing to dread.
He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,
Then kicked IPB with a neat little smirk.
And laying a finger on his enter key
He deployed a quick fix for all to see.
With the servers humming and forum safe
the Battle Cat swallowed the hairballs he had used to strafe.
He sprung to his cat tree, to his team gave a whistle,
And away they all flew, like the down of a thistle!
But I heard Frost exclaim, ere he turned out his lights –
Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

When there's a multiplayer version, I'm going to be on Frost's team. Well, except he doesn't seem to actually need a team...I mean, what's the point? "Hey look, it's Frost and His Merry Gang of Useless Hangers-On!" Or something.

Here is an old Christmas message of peace I wrote during the Marathon days:

As usual around Christmas time when there is a war, the soldiers will sometime lay down their arms and come together for a moment in warmth and peace.  Such a thing happened on board the UESC Marathon today.  Silent Night was playing over the intercom system during a lull in the fighting.  I happened upon a squad of Pfhor projectile fighters led by a Purple Trooper.  An odd thing happened, we just looked at each other, no one powered up their weapons.  I slowly took my hand from the grip of my holstered .44 Magnum.  The Trooper stepped forward and offered his hand saying gently, "Uhh er uhh ahhhh".  This was an awkward moment for us both.  Soon we were all singing carols and sipping eggnog.  I reached into a side flap of an ammo pouch, found my lucky Bhanta foot and gave it to the Trooper.  In kind he gave me a small cylinder with a blinking light.  It was magical, and as he turned to rejoin his squad of blue fighters, a tear started to well up in my eye making me think, "What the HELL is going on here?!?"  I planted a rack of SPNKRs into the Troopers stinking butt crack and took out the rest of his squad with my MA-75B Battle Rifle only moments before the small cylinder the Trooper gave me exploded with deadly force.  Hitting my action key I swore poetically and replayed the room without all the singing, weeping and good intentions... the way Marathon was MEANT to be played!  Merry Christmas everyone and happy CARNAGE in the new year!

Isn't that relish good?  We marfed down some of that stuff this Thanksgiving.  It's like a tradition now.
