Stuff you don’t care about: August Edition

Posted by inpheaux on August 1st, 2008 at 2:29 am

I finally got off my ass and upgraded us to WordPress 2.6. Go me. It looks and works exactly the same for you, but it's ridiculously different for us. As soon as the nice people over at Punbb release 1.3 we'll be upgrading to that too . . after I spend a few days bashing […]

How we spent our long weekend: Hardware Hacking

Posted by inpheaux on January 21st, 2008 at 8:56 pm

We had a productive long weekend here at Directional Pad. A few weeks ago Andy picked up the Nintendo Wii Zapper and was - as we assume many people were - completely dismayed by the fact that it wasn't compatible with Resident Evil 4. The problem stems from the fact that the zapper and all […]

Forums are open to registrations again

Ok, this one's my bad. At some point it appears our CAPTCHA script stopped working, and no one told me. Sorry? Well, it's fixed now. So if you haven't been able to register for the past month or so (and aren't a robot) you can register right over here.

Posted by inpheaux on October 28th, 2007 at 8:01 pm

We've been holding onto this set for awhile. It just kept snowballing, you know? Well, here they all are in descending order of quality. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED BioShock - PC / 360 - The best single-player game I've played since System Shock 2. Portal - PC / 360 (and eventually PS3) - The second-best single-player game […]

Posted by inpheaux on August 21st, 2007 at 12:15 am

Quick review post, as I need to get to sleep so I can wake up bright and early to play Bioshock when it arrives on my doorstep tomorrow morning. Picross DS - Highly Recommended - This is easily one of the best values out there right now for the DS. There are potentially hundreds of […]

Put your party hats on, it’s DirectionalPad’s 2nd birthday

Posted by inpheaux on July 6th, 2007 at 1:06 pm

Looks like we've managed to survive another year. I don't really have a big well-thought-out post to celebrate the occasion, or even have promises of a ton of upcoming content, since we don't have any reviews in the pipeline at the moment. Unfortunately it doesn't look like we'll be going to E3 this year, as […]

Planned downtime coming up tonight

Posted by inpheaux on June 15th, 2007 at 4:01 am

Our hosts at 1&1 have apparently decided that our colocated server isn't where they want it to be, so our box is getting moved around tonight. So when you can reach us tonight, between 11:00 PM and 06:00 AM EDT, that'd be why. We'll be back soon enough.

Metapost: WordPress upgraded to 2.2

Posted by inpheaux on May 21st, 2007 at 12:43 pm

You probably don't care about this, but just to keep you all informed, I wanted to announce that I upgraded WordPress - the software that makes DPad Go - last night from some ancient version to 2.2, which was released last week. I did some dev-server testing before rolling out to production, and didn't come […]

Downtime & Review updates

Posted by inpheaux on November 27th, 2006 at 11:19 pm

Hey, we had some downtime. Our wonderful hosts got excited and decided they needed to pull our interweb plug for 24 hours and not tell me why, and then when they told me why they refused to let me back on. We're better now. We have come to terms. Also, now that we're back up, […]
