Jumpgate Evolution – Beta Signup

A while ago I received a newsletter from Codemasters about an upcoming game called „Jumpgate Evolution„:

Jumpgate Evolution is the definitive elite space combat MMO set in an intense action-packed universe. Discover three playable nations, trade valuable commodities, take part in dangerous intergalactic raids, meet and play with friends and live out the dream to become an elite hero, all-controlling commander or infamous space pirate.

Jumpgate EvolutionThe screenshots are very promising, as are the features:

  • Engage in Dog-Fights
  • Explore a huge and varied universe
  • Highly Accessible
  • Huge Space Battles
  • Three Playable Nations
  • Advanced Gameplay Systems
  • Player driven world

The game itself looks like a Eve Online variant, so one may wait for the Beta release to judge about it.

If you want to sign up for the beta, visit the Jumpgate Evolution homepage.

I’m signed up already and hope to be one of the many chosen for testing the game. What about you?

StumbleUpon and Firefox 3 – Auto-Bookmark on Thumb Up or Tag

StumbleUpon With the release of Firefox 3 our favorite distraction bar, or better known as „StumbleUpon Bar“, got a few new features some of us may like others may not want to use.

I don’t want to cover all of the new features.
I only cover one which I don’t use and I believe there are many people who don’t want to use either. I’m talking about the „save as local bookmark if thumbed up or if tagged“.

Maybe you noticed it already:

You stumble a site, you like it and you give your thumb up – Pew, and it is bookmarked.
You want to tag a site – Pew, and it is bookmarked.

I wish StumbleUpon wouldn’t set this feature to auto enabled, or at least they could ask us if we want to use this feature before enabling it. I’m not sure if they mentioned it somewhere and I’m a bit too lazy too Google for it.

Anyway, time to get rid of this feature Weiterlesen

Xfire – Gaming Simplified

Every Gamer knows this problem: You play a game and your have your favorite messenger running in the background. Right in a fight you get an incoming message. Depending on your computer, the game and the messenger, you either get killed, the game/computer crashes or something else happens, like the Internet fails, that’s why getting a pro gaming router at least help with this problem. Also, you may not be able to „tab out“ and reply.

Maybe it is the perfect timing to tell you about gaming messenger named Xfire. Weiterlesen

Soundtrack To Your Life

Zita Swoon Music For Life While stumbling around through the Internet, I discovered a nice article at Skippy’s List: „Soundtrack To Your Life„.

skippy got a list with topics and a handful instructions how to fill them with music tracks to create your own, unique soundtrack for your life. It was fun to create my own soundtrack and I believe it is also a good chance to think about your life while you listen to your soundtrack.

Enough said, time to show you my soundtrack list: Weiterlesen

Being alive part 2

I‚m slowly on my way back to be more active on my blog. However, before I can concentrate only on writing and replying to comments, I still have to do some minor updates and tweaking.

So far I finally got all plugins updated and even got the time to fix an issue with the menu on the right:
If you visited the „Tutorials“ or „About Ruelicke.net“ section of my blog, you may have noticed that the sub entries got messed up a bit. It is fixed now, but my „friend“, the Internet Explorer, messes it up now.
I’ll see if I can fix it, if not, you may look for an alternate browser 😉

I even got the time to finally align my Firefox advertisement properly at the bottom so it fits a bit better to the design than before.

It seems to me as I only have two or three things left which need my attention, then I can start blogging again. Two of those things are the Internet Exploder bug with the NicEdit WYSIWYG editor and the, currently missing, Gravatar avatars in the comments.

Enough for now 🙂
