    Surely there are some people geeky enough here to frequent slashdot?
    If you haven't already, please go read the headlines and look at the site...ah it cracks me up. I love it. :D

    You were once like the newbie who needed a hand from above and TacticalGamer gave you it.

    You owe the newbie who comes after you that same outstretched hand from above on your honor as a Tactical Gamer.

    Tactics at TG come from trust and friendship, not meticulous detail and rigid discipline.

    Everyone should be assumed mature until proven otherwise.

    We are no clan.
    We are not a single game.
    We are mature, intelligent, and cooperative individuals.
    We are TacticalGamer, a community above and beyond its name.

    Darkilla: In short, NS is pretty much really fast chess. With guns. Apophis: I haven't seen anyone say that SM's are better than non-SMs. Nordbomber: This is THE first server I've seen where either side can comeback from out of seemingly nowhere with the right teamwork. en4rcment: I have NEVER experienced the type of gameplay that I have found here. Nightly I am amazed at the personalities and gaming talent. Zephyr: Apophis is clearly a highly sophisticated self-aware AI construct that runs on a highly modified toaster oven in Wyzcrak's basement.

      Warning: Even though these microwaves are about as harmful as the leakage from an ordinary microwave oven (not much), do not put computers, televisions, other sensitive electrical equipment, food, liquids, paper, glass, flammable substances, magnets, or living things in between the base and satellite units. Just in case.

                ** The iZilla - Digital Media Monster **
                Tromping through the streets of downtown Tokyo, crunching tiny white
                audio players underfoot comes the iZilla. If you've been looking to
                step up to a hungry-man sized portable media player with incredible
                tech powers, this is it. The iZilla offers a whopping two terabytes of
                storage and has a built-in slot loading turntable for ripping audio
                direct from vinyl. Take the iZilla with you anywhere. It's like having
                an entire home entertainment system in a handy 30 pound white briefcase.
                http://www.thinkgeek.com/stuff/41/izilla.shtml?cpg=28T

                ** The USB Desktop Tanning Center **
                ThinkGeek has long pondered the fate of geeks who live their entire
                lives indoors with pale, blotchy skin. Just like you. We knew we could
                never motivate you to get off the computer in some half-witted attempt
                to go kayaking or to have a spring picnic. There simply is not enough
                time for World of Warcraft as it is, and we fully understand. So, we
                figured if we can't get you to interact with sunlight, we would do the
                next best thing and bring the sun to you. 400 watts of Ultraviolet
                bliss easily attaches on either side of your monitor and is USB
                powered! Now you can frag until the cows come home and still work on a
                deliciously amber tan all because ThinkGeek had the vision, power and
                ingenuity to make your world a brighter happy place. Get golden here:

                ** Grow Your Own 1up Mushroom Kit **
                Mario's dream is finally here. His insurance was running out because of
                all his hand injuries - hitting bricks and blocks is tough, you know.
                But the pain and hospital visits were worth it every time he found an
                elusive 1up Mushroom. Now, Mario can rest easy and so can you. All you
                need to add is potting soil and water, and you'll have everything you
                need to grow your very own 1up Mushroom. And the best part is - it
                really works! Really. Grow in the included sewer-pipe-shaped flower
                pot, and you'll have the greatest conversation piece ever. Just keep it
                nearby; you never know when Bowser or Wario will attack, and you'll
                need an extra life.

                ** Wireless Extension Cords !! **
                Workplace safety is a key element to worker happiness. And a happy
                worker is a productive worker. Extension cords can be a real work
                hazard, snaking across the floor and tripping you. Not only are they
                dangerous, but the accidents can be quite embarrassing. Make your
                workplace safer - use Wireless Extension Cords (WECs). Using the latest
                in microwave energy transmission technology, the WECs "beam" power
                right where you need it. Broadcasting in the 7.2GHz range, the WECs
                will not interfere with wireless networks, phones, or Bluetooth
                components. Be sure to heed all the warnings in the instruction manual;
                the microwaves used are relatively safe, but you don't want to cook
                your computer (or coworkers) by mistake.

                ** The Screened Sphorb - The future, again. **
                Only once in a lifetime does a product come along that redefines the
                barriers and sets all the boundaries back to a starting place. A
                product that gives more than it takes and gives back even more. Just
                imagine what the world would be like without the Screened Sphorb and
                that world would not be unlike anything you can even think to imagine
                thinking about. Imagine that and you'll start to see why critics are
                calling the Screened Sphorb a product that not only offers more time
                profit than any product ever, but also features aspects that make it
                easier and easier to ascribe to the lay person without having to
                compromise a single screen. Now that's revolutionary. Winner of
                multiple awards including "mind numbingly best", we reveal the
                aesthetically stunning and paradigm shift enabling, amazing, Screened
                Sphorb. Exclusively available at ThinkGeek:

                ** Buzzaire - Metered Dose Caffeine Inhaler !! **
                We like caffeine. It helps us wake up in the morning, stay alert during
                the day, and stay even more alert during the night. Caffeine keeps us
                rocking, coding, fragging, and partying well past normal human
                tolerance. Here at ThinkGeek, we sell caffeinated liquids (drinks,
                syrups) and solids (mints, gums). But something was missing; there was
                a state of matter not caffeinated: gas. Until now! Welcome to the first
                commercially available caffeinated inhaler. One puff and you'll have
                about two cups of coffee's worth of caffeine zooming through your blood
                stream. Because it's inhaled, it will start working a lot faster than
                caffeine delivery systems that need to be digested. Breathe in and perk
                up! And yes, we know about the fourth state of matter: plasma...just
                wait until we unveil the world's first caffeinated desktop star (later
                this year):

                        "William Robinson writes "ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) has once again scrapped the plan for a new internet "domain" .xxx for pornography. Supporters of the .xxx address suffix argued that it would have helped to protect children and others from accidental exposure to internet pornography, particularly if stronger filters were used to screen out explicit material from other internet domains. Pressure from conservative Christian groups in the US, which has a veto over the internet addressing system, led the organisation last year to put off introducing a new ".xxx" domain for pornography on the internet. That drew international complaints that the US exercised too much power over the internet and added to a European-backed movement to shift control of the online medium to an international group."
