They Said It Couldn't Happen

In the midst of all this chaos caused by COVID-19 a bond was formed. No, stronger than a bond. A loyalty, a trust, an understanding .... a unit. Forged as one, a team of geriatric gamers took on the millennial kids of today and triumphed. The old bulls walked down the hill and had their feast of all the heffers. The likes of which have never been seen before. Well maybe once if the know the quote below:

“In 1972, a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them....maybe you can hire The A-Team.”

The statistics are terrible, but the tag line if the banner is all that matters. Luke, Paul and I hid our way to victory. My aim was absolutely terrible at the end, but it wasn't helped with the ping spamming to tell me where the target was or the constant cries of “get him Jamie, he's here, get him, get him ...”

I even went as far as to record a clip of the win which, honestly, highlights exactly how bad we are. There was only one person left against the three of us. I have no idea what Paul did, he just seemed to die. Luke was trying to creep in and walked straight at him seeming to face tank his shots. I crept round to get an angle and whiffed every shot in my first mag. I got lucky that I could use my ability to run off then use a battery on gold shields.

Just to prove that my aim isn't completely terrible, here's a couple of other wins - the first one I had and one that happened just after Paul and Luke left. Both of these with random strangers that weren't yelling in my ear.

Rag's Blogs

Stuff blogs are comments about things I've heard that I found of interest and decided to share. Mostly, this is where I get to point out silly things that I've heard.

Website blogs are little snippets of information about something that has been developed or is in the process of being developed for this website.

The Democratic People's Republic of Blogs

OBlogs are the ramblings of a mate of mine back in the UK. Wanting to see if I could build a tool that was idiot proof for someone to write and edit their own blogs I needed a .... err .... hmmm .... system tester, yeah that's what I was looking for. So I have my first guinea pig. If successful and anyone else wants a go, click the contacts button and shoot me an email.

Specific Topic Blogs

Build Your Own Blog (BYOB) is the pice de rsistance of the EastBayRag blogs. Being even more sad than people give me credit for, I've documented how this website is created and how some of the components work. To be honest, more so that I don't forget and have somewhere to come back and refer to, but if you're thinking of doing something similar this may be of interest to you.

Road Trip America is the story of the sights and sounds from a road trip across the United States that four of us took. Two of these people being Mr O of the OBlogs and myself.

Open Forum (Free for All)

Open Forum is an open place for anyone to post an ariticle. Ever wanted the ability to create your own article without having to create multiple entries. Well, now you have that ability and there's even the option to add a picture to your article if you want to spruce it up. Note, however, these open forums are open so anyone can submit an article. Hopefully this will work and it won't get abused, but we will wait and see. (We are tracking access by IP, so we can find you!!!)
