  • new web site for Gringo Warrior, all scores and content now online

    You ever have one of those days where you get so engrossed in a project that you sort of neglect eating, sleeping, sex, etc? Yeah, me neither... but i did forgo most of my sleep tonight when, in spite of being wickedly tired, my body just kept cranking out HTML for hours.

    The Gringo Warrior section of my web site has been pretty bare for a long time. I didn't even have a link to it on the main page. Well, that's all changed now. All the past content, the scores, the videos, the summaries, etc etc etc. is all online now.


    So, if you participated in a run of Gringo that was filmed, check it out and show your friends! If your attempt was filmed by someone other than me, point me towards a video of it online and i'm happy to link to it. If we somehow accidentally filmed you when you did not want to be filmed, please let me know so i can pull the video down.

    I'm looking forward to bringing this back again at DEFCON 17 and have been really happy to take more and more steps towards buffing up the overall appearance and reputation of the game in order to ensure that it is included among the "Official Events" with a Black Badge this year. That was the plan last time, but a miscommunication fouled us up in the end.

    I hope to see all of you stopping by the Gringo area this summer, if not to participate then at least to cheer on (or heckle) your friends.

I don't feel cool when I go there. I'm tired of seeing John Mayer's face pop up. I feel like I'm being hustled when I visit there, and I don't think their product is that great. DRM, low bit rate, etc... OiNK it existed because it filled a void of what people want."

    And such a tidy garage too . Damm D.O. your garage is cleaner that my apartment. You should get a black badge just for that.

    Just because you can doesn't mean you should. This applies to making babies, hacking, and youtube videos.

      Oh noes! Tabled layout!
      And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts, And I looked and behold: a pale horse. And his name, that sat on him, was Death. And Hell followed with him.

        heh, that was when i didn't have the jeep pulled in there. it's a little more cluttered now. i have to replace the starter and haven't had time to work on it.

        heh, i used to have one. as some folk have heard me say when crying into a beer on occasion, i had the luck of winning one at DC12, the year that the badges had a critical design weakness...


        ... and the following year the policy allowed people to just use their black badge as a con badge. on the last day of DC13 i looked down and realized it had totally snapped off at some point. so i'm without one now.

        lord knows if i'll ever get so lucky again. heh, maybe i'll be like LosT, where someone who wins my contest wants to give their black badge to me as a reward. bah, who am i kidding, i'll never be as cool as that guy.

          one of the things that is so astounding about you is that you don't really know how cool you are. :-D

          stay shiny!

            see... that's sweet of you to say, but i wholly disagree. i actually do have a pretty good handle on the fact that i'm not a total douchebag like i was when i was a kid, but i'm supremely aware of my own limitations... and they are numerous and manifold.

            i might have a leg up on the noobs that come right off the turnip truck, but i can't hold a candle to the many, many figures in our community who i consider a pleasure just to know and hang with.

            you're one of those folk, dearest, if you'll pardon my drunkenly dripping praise and poor grammar with dangling prepositions above. i'm still working on the TRISC crew regarding a push in my flights, btw, so that i can chill out with you after the con in Austin and see the flowers in bloom and such. If you don't mind my snoring, i'd be honored to rack out on your couch for a day or two after that conference.

              With humility comes self-awareness. :-)

              Yeah, even though I don't like any of you very much, there are many cool people in this community...

              /me rolls over laughing!

              awwwww! Stop it! mi futon es su futon. Delighted to have you visit! we'll have coffee out in the outdoor office and watch the morning puppy parade (you will understand once you see it). I will dig about and see if any of the other 512'ers are in town and we'll have a rouser BBQ! Oh, and bring your swim trunks; luscious spa and pool in the offing...

              Regards,

                another Gringo Warrior update

                just a quick note, since a few people have been poking me via email and such... the Gringo Warrior site is updated for all of the cons i've been to recently. all scores and times are posted, and the YouTube account has all of the latest videos. Heh, there are even some video clips uploaded that aren't of official runs... but they're quite entertaining, i must say.

                Things tend to get whacky at NotACon every year, but this was the first time that such an immense cock became part of the escape course... best Gringo run evar.

                  This year we should increase the level of realism in Gringo Warrior by infecting everyone with Mexican Swine Flu. You get extra points for locking picking if your fever is above 105.

                    God, now I'm gonna be *that* guy- the one with good shoulders.

                    I thought Bruce's shock value scored him higher what with the entire course moving on him.

                      It looks to me like the blindfold was quite beneficial in that course.

                        It adds a challenge, and it puts on a little bit of a show for people watching.
