I was born a little late in life to of enjoyed the Rocky saga when it first hit the streets. I’ve always heard the Rocky related jokes and comments but they never really made much sense to me having not seen any of the movies. All that recently changed with the release of Rocky Balboa the 6th and final Rocky movie. I’d just got back from a hard days sparring and was crashing out on the sofa with dinner when I saw that Rocky was just about to start on Sky Movies. Then I realised it was a Rocky marathon with 1-5 being shown back to back. My options for the evening where work and get that almost late project completed or watch the Rocky marathon. Welcome to my mini guide of the Rocky movies¬†Smile

I tried this out ages ago and it didnt really work. It was like half the system shut down but the drives and cpu fan kept ticking. I realised I hadn’t tried it on my current hardware setup as I changed my motherboard for an Abit AV8-3rd Eye during the past two years. I just tested out hibernate and suspend and both worked fine. I ran into a problem with suspending the system where the monitor didnt resume but I found an easy fix for that.

So google seemed to hate my old domain name, maybe it got blacklisted as part of the no-ip free range. Either way I was getting thrashed in the listing by my photographer counterpart. The new domain is https://www.davidmillington.net which is replacing the old domain of http://www.millington.no-ip.org

I setup a bunch of 301 redirects to gradually move peoples links over to the new domain whilst keeping the search engines happy. Setting that up was a bit of a pain but now its mostly complete. Redirected links to the wiki still arent 100% sorted yet as they show the uncleaned urls tagged onto the new domain name. It means they are fully functional but they just arent as pretty looking so they need more work.

Senators Hillary Clinton, Joe Lieberman, and Evan Bayh recently announced that they will introduce “The Family Entertainment Protection Act” which would regulate the sale of certain video games throughout America.

Anti-video game forces are pressing forward. Gamers must stand up now and take action. The government does not regulate access to or the sale of movies, books or cable TV, and it should not regulate video games.

Please take action now and tell your Senators not to co-sponsor or support “The Family Entertainment Protection Act” via this site:

If it happens in America then it might only be a matter of time before mis-conceived idealogies such as this spread to other countries.

You read it right, there are laws against this sort of thing arent there?
