I took a peek at the stats for Coffee|Code today, and was a wee bit surprised to see that Hot Coffee code was the top search string that brought people to my site. Jeez, and here I was thinking that all these people were enthralled by my tales of losing at online poker...
For those not in the know, Hot Coffee was the name of a patch for Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas that unleashed the offensive-to-some mini-games of a sexual nature and which led to all kinds of notoriety for the game. Well, even more notoriety than it already had attained for its in-game violence, all of which led to lawsuits and financial troubles for the creator (Take Two Interactive).
If you're one of those hot-n-horny youngsters looking for the Hot Coffee patch (and ironically due to this post it's now even more likely that you've landed here): I have had the game for quite a while, but I don't have the patch (sorry!) and can't offer any insight as to the quality of the resulting mini-games. But look here, kids: this is the Internet. If you're frustrated in your search for the patch, I'm sure you can find much higher quality content of a sexual nature with a simple search on one of those big seach engines (just make sure you turn the "Family Friendly" filter off). Consider that a tip from Uncle Dan.
Heck, I'll even get you slacker kids started. Here's a link to Angelina Jolie rendered in old-school erotic ASCII art, just like I would have painstakingly downloaded at 300 baud from a BBS (although Angelina would have been disturbingly young at the time--let's not think about that, ok?). Most amazing of all, that site is actually a commercial site. Sheesh. You can make money on anything.
This place isn't called Coffee|Code for nothing. I'm quite serious about my coffee, to the point of roasting my own. I started a year and a half ago with a Freshroast Plus roaster that was included with a year-long subscription (of two pounds per month) of Merchants of Green Coffee, borrowed my friend Jamie's Hearthware classic hot air roaster last winter after the Freshroast got cracked and started letting coffee chaff fly around the kitchen, and was hoping that Santa-Lynn would bring me a brand new Swissmar Alpenrost drum roaster for Christmas.
So how did I end up with a brand new Hearthware iRoast this week? And why am I so giggly happy?
