How to Mount a Skateboard on Your Wall
By grimcity at 2007-01-05 13:49

Lots of skateboarders have decks that have some sort of sentimental value... some of us have boards that we hold onto because they're limited editions, the graphics are tight, they're autographed, or maybe the skater just has special memories associated with the plank in question. This article will show you one of several ways to hang a board on your wall so that you can enjoy the graphic, and allow your prized possession to be a work of art.

One of the complications with hanging a board is that they don't rest flatly on the wall... the nose and/or tail cause them to pop out a few inches, so nailing them directly is out of the question (unless you have some pretty long nails). Another problem with nailing the board directly is that you run the risk of missing the nail and smashing into the board itself... which may not matter if it's a used board, but if you're trying to mount a board while keeping the graphic in mint condition, consider this method. Here's an example of two (of several) boards I recently got around to mounting:

Nintendo Wii and Zelda

Being one of those who camped out for the Wii on November 18th, I thought I'd share my experiences and reviews of the console and Zelda.

For those who have never camped out, it's something I recommend. I arrived with several friends 12 hours before store opening. We were 14th - 18th in line, and there were supposed to be 54 consoles selling that day. Camping out was a fun deal. It was a mild fight for survival in cold November weather... But someone was constantly going off to buy food or hot drinks. Lot's of people were playing multi-player DS games. By lot's I mean like.. 15

12 Days of ...Problems?!
By Tom-E at 2006-12-14 01:22

Quite fitting to Christmas season, we have encountered 12 days of problems here. Due to an improper server reboot, our databased crashed, causing some strange bug, unheard of even to the Mullen himself... Who knows.

Either way, things seem to be fixed. Terribly sorry it took so long, and yes I didn't sleep either.

From now on I think I will no longer be waiting for support to do our dirty work, but get right to it myself. 12 Days is beyond reasonable time, a temporary fix is all that was needed.
