The ChipWIN Blog Hack: The Postmortem

Posted by

Last week on the CWB — the world was in disarray as nasty Russian porn spam assaulted the brave viewers of the mobile version of the blog.  President Hoodie made the decision to limit the spread of the pixelated and badly size-ratioed X-Rated images by halting blog operations for the week while ViridianForge and Chaney teamed up to figure out just what the heck had gone wrong. If you decide to jump past the fold, you’ll find out just what they discovered. This article is heavy on the technical detail for us, so before you dive in, take a look at these adorable kittens.

Hoodie Highlights… his own mental health.

Posted by

Sup y’all? =) President Hoodie here with, uh… no interview this month.

That’s right. I’m taking the month off from my Hoodie Highlights interview column post-MAGFest for my own mental health. haha

That said, there’s probably some of of you that have been reading my interviews over the last few months wondering why in the world I’m doing a mental health focused series in the first place. Figure here at the start of 2017 is as good a time as any to share a brief version of my story. Read on if you’re curious.

Me in my natural habitat.

Turbo Super Post-MAG MAG-Post 2017 & Knuckles Gaiden Day One Edition

Posted by

By the time you read this, everyone should be home and happy, well rested, without the MAGFlu and otherwise readjusted to real life. While I’m WRITING it, however, I’m drowning in posts from people in transit back to the dark corners of the world they crawled from so that they can go heal themselves. While this year’s MAGFest might have been the biggest one so far, it also seems to have taken the most from us in terms of bodily health, but only because everyone was incapable of having any degree of chill. Everyone basically just kept going until they were physically unable to go anymore, and even then they just kinda propped their bodies up in chairs so they could at least look like they were still going like some kind of knock-off ‘Weekend at Bernie’s.’ It was amazing. But enough talk – let’s have at this highlight reel!

Gettin’ ChipFit – Understanding Nutrition

Posted by

Happy New Year ChipWINation! There are two things that are innate to the start of another recognized turn of our giant ball of mostly molten metal about the sun.  The first is New Year’s health resolutions, and the second is motherfucking MAGFest. Now, as a reader, you’re probably thinking those two things have almost nothing in common, and frankly, you’d pretty much be right. In fact, after my first trip to MAGFest last year, I’d go so far as to say they’re negatively correlated. See, the key component to getting and staying fit is good nutrition. I’ll get into defining that below the fold, but I’m sure we can all agree you’ll be hard pressed to find it at MAGFest.

That’s okay. Get yourselves to MAG, party your asses off, and then come back to this article. Seriously, its on the Internet now. Its not going anywhere.
