Found abandoned bird. Named her Sparks. (162 comments)
Posted by cl0ck @ 11:23 CDT, 23 May 2015 - iMsg
So I am rehabilitating this baby fledgling that I found near my car. It appeared to be abandoned by its mother. Unfortunately, it doesn't follow my direction very well (in regards to feeding), hardly responds to anything I do and does not seem strong enough to survive my care.

I have named her Sparks.

So yesterday I noticed this bird next to my car, which was parallel parked near my house. I didn't think anything of it. I came back two hours later it was still there and I noticed cars that were attempting to parallel park were having to dodge it and were coming pretty close to hitting it. I lightly moved it closer to the street. I went back outside a few hours later to take my dog out and saw it was still there in the exact same spot I moved it to. I decided to scoop it up and take it in my house and figure out what to do with it.

I call my vet, they said they don't deal with wildlife but referred me to some wildlife rehabilitation centers in the Chicago area to call. I called a few and they referred me to two people who specifically handle rehabilitating these birds (this type of bird is a protected bird here in Chicago, called a Common Starling). Unfortunately due to the holiday weekend these people told me that they were unable to take in the bird until Monday. They advised me to either put it in a bush and hope for the best or attempt to take care of it until then. Being as I am such a nice guy, I decided to try and care for it until one of these centers is open to take it.

After googling stuff and making a few pet-store runs I have acquired the necessary materials to attempt to care for this bird until I can deliver it to this lady on Monday.

Edit: I have decided to begin accepting donations to help get the bird to Quakecon.

CTF Draft 2K11 Complete, Thundercats Ho! (198 comments)
Posted by cl0ck @ 10:40 CDT, 2 May 2011 - iMsg
Scheduled: 14:00 CDT, 1 May 2011 to 21:00 CDT, 1 May 2011
Schedule: Passed

The CTF Draft 2K11 has finished without a hitch. While a small number of the 40+ players had last minute conflicts preventing them from participating, the turnout and level of commitment from eveyone was remarkable. This event was a clear indication that North American CTF is booming and the talent pool is incredibly high. Just about every match was very exciting and close, there were numerous overtimes as well. We can only hope to see more of these in the future!

The finals saw a clash of the defensive titans, resulting in Thundercats coming out on top 3-0, in VERY close games.

Update: Results posted below. VOD's from both casting organizations will be available shotly on their respective websites, demos soon as well!

CXG: Behind closed doors (by cl0ck) (251 comments)
Posted by cl0ck @ 09:44 CST, 12 January 2004 - iMsg
High hopes and aspirations for potentially one of the best tournaments of our time were floating in the air of a small apartment in Boston, Massachusetts where I and cha0ticz prepared for the Cyber X-Games.

How wrong we were…

Game after game we played, practicing hard, playing the maps we haven’t played in so long with admiration to soar to the top of the event we were about to attend. Our games were on; we were playing really good, close games on all maps with full strategic knowledge banks.

But would this help us any at CXG? Nope, infact we should have been practicing playing on 3-4 hours sleep at 8am in the morning rather then the maps themselves.

Read on to see how the days progressed.
