|Round Two Starts Monday Night|
An update on two challenge days:
On Thursday night a sick (literally and figuratively) Kobe scored 31 points in a game 6 loss against the Denver Nuggets which set the stage for a winner-take-all game 7 to be played in La La Land.
Friday was my challenge day to match the points that Kobe scored in achievements unlocked. I did pass the challenge; earning 32 achievements across 6 different games.
The winner-take-all game 7 was played on Saturday night at Staples Center in Los Angeles California. Kobe scored 17 points in a win over the Denver Nuggets and The Lakers move on to play the Oklahoma City Thunder in Round 2 which begins on Monday night. The challenge lives on for at least another 4 games with this victory.
Sunday was the challenge day for me. I unlocked exactly 17 achievements across 4 different games to get the job done.
I really can’t see the Lakers getting by this younger and more talented Thunder team. I wouldn’t bet my money on it happening, but I wouldn’t be totally shocked if they somehow managed to squeak on by. The Lakers bigs need to play out of their minds for the entire series to even give LA a chance. If LA can steal game 1, I think the Lakers will win in 6. Big if! I’m hoping for a rusty Thunder squad since they have been idle for 8 or 9 days now. Then again, I’d rather be rusty then dog-ass tired like the Lakers will be after playing seven grueling games in the first-round.

I saw The Avengers movie last night in 3D and all I can say is go see it for yourself to experience the awesome. Quite the epic moving going affair. Cindy absolutely loved it as well. I generally hate 3D movies with the exception to that rule being Avatar. Avengers, in my eyes, is totally worth seeing on the big screen in 3D. Hulk Smash the Box Office!!!
I acquired my first achievement back on November 22, 2005.
2,363 days later, on May 12, 2012, I’m 30,000 achievements richer. (6 year, 5 months, 20 days)
That comes out to 12.69 PPD (Pops Per Day) or achievements unlocked per day.
The achievement I used for my 30,000 milestone was “To Infinity…and Beyond!” from Disney/Pixar RUSH
If you lay out 30,000 64X64 images one by one like the image above ( that’s the size of achievement tiles) it would reach almost 1/3 of a mile in length (.0321 miles) Each 64X64 image = .68 inches when viewed on a Flat panel monitor. Even larger on a CRT scaling from .87in to 1.08in. 30,000 achievements would be maximum size on CRT going over half a mile in length (.511)
At the time of this writing, 30,000 achievements is the most of any achievement or trophy hunter in the universe. I have even managed to out achieve some of the high PS3 trophy guys that admit and openly share their account with a group of people.
Here’s a little video I put together for my 30,000th achievement milestone.
