Journal by MikeDawg

The recent article under games about favorite NES games from the past brought back a lot of memories, I'm going to try and come up with a list of games that I loved. Hell, I'll come up with a list of games I loved for every console I've ever had!!!

  • Nintendo
    • Excitebike (Damn that dark purple level)
    • Ikari Warriors (Endless game with the A B B A Select Cheat code)
    • Golf (classic)
    • Tennis
    • Ice Hockey (Awesome hockey game, you can actually fight!!)
    • Zelda (obvious)
    • Hogan's Alley (Awesome shooting game)
    • Mario Bros. (1, 2, and 3) (Yes I included 2, even though I don't understand the game, I liked playing as the princess ;-) )
    • Mike Tyson's Punch Out!!!
    • Who Framed Roger Rabbit?
    • Ikari Warriors
    • T&C Surf Designs

Journal: Brainstorming 2

Journal by MikeDawg

Damn, all this thought about new patents I could come up with amaze me.

Maybe I could come up with a method for:

  • Showing up to work later than schedule aka Late for Work
  • Not waking up to your alarm clock.
  • Driving faster than the posted speed limit.

More brainstorming ideas to come soon!!!

Journal: USPTO

Journal by MikeDawg

I'm about sick of the USPTO and them issuing stupid, stupid, stupid ass patents on existing technology on the web.

I feel like applying for a shitload of patents, in fact, I'm curious to as if there is a patent on the USPTO itself. I should apply for a patent for a repository for maintaining a database or a store of information regarding patents.

I hope nobody steals my idea from Slashdot. Which brings to mind, is there a patent for weblogs?
