    Computer Geek award

    ISU should be given some sort of award by Dell for our massive numbers of computer nerds.

    Winning the ESPN fan poll on student sections and now the CBSsportsline mascot contest. Too bad in JTS we dont bring it like we do when we are behind our monitors.

    Hey now... We're also good at stalking aircraft and using needlessly big words in debates. Let's give ourselves a little credit!

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    You don't really need to be a computer nerd to push or hold down the Enter button...

    I'm not a geek - o wait, I still play Diablo II from time to time...

    At least it's given me the ability to click a mouse button...

    Um, yes. Actually, after about 15 seconds, I was a lot less excited than I had always anticipated. I think it's some sort of physiological defense- I've waited and waited for so long for this game to be announced and it never was, than my body just gave up as a defense mechanism. I'll probably wait until it's actually in my hands, and then have a seizure right then and there.

    And, lol, no worries- this is Blizzard we're talking about. I'd be shocked if it came out in the next 5 years, much less before we graduate. It looked pretty far along in the video, sure, but they'll find something to push it back for. After all, this is the only game that people have been waiting for longer than Duke Nukem Whenever. What's another two years of development?

    Oh, and as a side note: Korea has it really good with Hyori... Wow. I mean, wow.

    The original was released when Blizzard still had a gap between their Mac and PC versions of games, so by the time I got my Mac copy, I was well behind the competition in multiplayer.

    Another reason I'm hoping for a post-graduation release is because I'd like to get a new computer. I imagine hundreds of zerglings running around in 3D will bog my laptop down to about 1-2 frames per second...
