Welcome to a new tidbit we are doing on Mondays. We will bring you 3-5 links that we find interesting. If you think you have an interesting site, please send us feedback and let us know.
I have to give credit where credit is due. This idea is not my own. I got it from Jason Murphys Blog. He does a segment called Free Links Friday where he puts up 7 links and tells you why he finds them interesting. I think its a great idea and I encourage you to check his blog, especially on Fridays for 7 Sites You Should See. Thanks Jason for linking us in your last list and thanks for a great idea. I hope you dont mind sharing. After all, the Internets a big place. 🙂
Our second link of interest comes directly from Jason Murphy. Hes going to kill me…. heh. But, I thought it was too good of a cause not to put it on our first list.
Let me introduce Michael OConnell. Michael has Muscular Dystrophy. Michael was very fortunate to have been given a Van at the age of 24 back in 1992. Needless to say, it has seen its last days. Michael put up a webpage telling you about himself, why he needs a van with an extremely expensive driving setup.
Michael brings up a point that I personally appreciate. Even though he is handicapped, he works for a living. His van has allowed him to do that. Because of this, he does not require government assistance. I think a lot of us take for granted how much having the ability to get to work increases our quality of life.
Go read Michaels Story. Its very humorous. Check out the pics of the old brown Econoline VAN, then check out the cool new (2002) Van with Starship Enterprise like controls, Blue Flames and a working FM stereo. When you are done, be sure and donate to his van fund.
Rock On Michael!
Our third link of interest is for a site called Fever Gaming. Doesnt sound familiar? It shouldnt, but you may have known it in another life as TotalBF2.com. You see, Fever Gaming is the work of a fella by the name of GameWizard. Now he should be familiar to you. After all, he was the guy that created and made TotalBF2.com what it is today.
I will not go into boring details, but Fever Gaming is running a copy of the TotalBF2.com Forums database. It is my understanding that GameWizard was fired from TotalBF2.com, even though he was actually the owner of the site. It is still to be see what contractual obligations were made between him and MyIS over the purchase of TotalBF2.com.
MyIS are the guys who brought you the Battlefield Rules of Engagement and pushed for EA to make them the official Rules for all Ranked Servers. In addition, they have appointed themselves the keepers of the rules and are taking up violation submissions for their review. If the "bf police" are watching us, then who is watching them?
I liked the TotalBF2 community of the past. If you are like me, then I encourage you to drop by Fever Gaming and become a contributing part of the new Battlefield Community.
Thats it for this weekâ€™s Links of Interest. Next week, Sarge or Bubba will tell you about theirs.
