wordle and bullets versus doors

Have you tried Wordle?

Wordle is a free site that you can use on an RSS or Atom Feed (like this blog has) to create word clouds, and see what words are regularly mentioned.  Check it out here http://www.wordle.net/create

To give an example, here's the word cloud for my blog:

wordle for thoggy.blogspot.com

I find some of the smaller words it picks out interesting.  Simon, for example - I had no idea I mentioned the name Simon so often.

Or vomit.

Meanwhile, adventures in Counter-Strike...

Me and Dusty had our usual gaming session the other night.  On the map CS_Assault, basically the terrorists have to protect the hostages from the counter-terrorists trying to get them.  Unusually, compared to other hostage maps, all the hostages are in a single area that can only be entered by one door, allowing the terrorists to camp behind the door and shoot anyone coming in.

Allow me to tell the story in pictures...

Dusty can be seen here, guarding the door. He's getting twitchy.

Dusty turns to me and says "Ok Thog, you stay here, I'm going to have a look outside!"

Dusty creeps up to the door. Can he hear something?

Apparently the other side can shoot through the door.

It was fun.

Future screenshots will be even better as we've both taken the plunge to buy the new Counterstrike: Global Offensive and we're getting to grips with that.
