Superpowers at War – Part 2: n-gaged already?

If you visited n-gage.com , you would read something like this!

Welcome to N-Gaged.com!
Find out more about the N-Gaged, or keep up with the latest events and more. Be sure to chat with other N-Gaged gamers!

Sometimes you want to call on your friends. Other times you want to challenge them to a multiplayer gaming showdown. More than just a mobile gaming device, getting N-Gaged allows you to do both….

Scientific studies have shown that events taking place at IATA:CGY will cause EMI and a fair amount of attenuation in 900/1800 MHz frequency band at IATA:TVC.

IntelligentMAN (refer here) seems to have pulled a fast one on the general public :
… the Celeron D joins the line of 64 bit enabled processors …
As far as I know, thats a load of cr@p. The word that comes to my mind when i hear that: b*llsh*t…

AMD ActivityMan has launched the counter attack with his new GPRS enabled secret weapon, the Turion64 . This will enable him to be in constant contact with the rest of the IPV4 enabled world!
muahahahah! Victory Dalais Placait! (the actual translation is lost. Refer the Asterix collection for clues…)

AMD ActivityMAN was supposed to reach CGY today but was unable to do so as he kept getting this error while doing a 'tracert CGY'
Unable to resolve target system name cgy
Baffled by this, he checked his own setup, but was unable to find a problem (tracert TVC…)
Tracing route to TVC [98.47.37.57.69]
over a maximum of 30 hops:
1
Trace complete.
Nevertheless, our hero entered into the ACPI state S3 from S0.

Early morning, the next day…
Our hero awakes and finds that the search is still futile.
Pinging CGY with 32 bytes of data:
Destination host unreachable.

Destination host unreachable.
Ping statistics for CGY:
Packets: Sent = 262144000, Received = 0, Lost = 262144000 (100% loss),
Dejected, he re-enters S3 and waits for a magic packet via WOL/WOR.

About an hour later, he receives a reply…
Tracing route to stantonys.com [48.130.95.45.3]
over a maximum of 30 hops:
1 750 755 87 TVC
2 814 815 116 CRY
3 819 820 119 KVU
4 834 835 128 VAK
5 844 845 139 PVU
6 910 915 152 QLN
7 950 952 192 KYJ
8 1001 1002 200 MVLK
9 1013 1014 213 CNGR
10 1023 1024 222 TRVL
11 1033 1034 230 CGY
Trace complete!

Finally, A lead! Unfortunately, he finds that it will be difficult to move this large mass of data/code to this location in time, and gives up chase.

AMD ActivityMAN goes back to S0, and is called by the D.M. [MCP,ECNR]. He jumps into action and sets off to the battlefield to wage the 'multiplayer gaming showdown'. After a hard yet victorious battle, and consumption of large quantities of C6H12O6 with H2O our hero returns to the drawing board.

Hmm…
I guess the N-Gaged theory is slightly flawed. I was able to challenge my friends to the multiplayer gaming showdown, but not call on the friends I was supposed to be with. Hmm, so I guess the multitasking only works at one place at a time eh? FYI: I think virtualization would be useful in this scenario……

Well, thats the way the bowling ball bounces. AMD ActivityMAN wishes to congratulate IntelligentMAN and the maiden My-croissoft 'Vista' (aka Longhorn…) and wishes them all the success and happiness for the years to come…

Now , if only he could figure out a way to get to IATA:SBC by next Saturday!
Thats one Fast Fourier Transform that even an itanium/opteron is going to have trouble chewing on.

signing off. (for my own good…. 🙂 )
