Goddamn, It’s Hot!

August 31, 2007

I mean… damn! It’s literally 100 degrees out right now! We’re keeping relatively cool at home, but our little wall unit A/C thingy can only do so much on its own. We’re having the gang over tomorrow night for board games and beverages, so we’ll do our best to keep the place a reasonable temperature. […]


Withdrawal OK

August 29, 2007

Thanks for the kind words, all. I’m doing fine on my now WoW-free lifestyle, and I have been filling the time with various C++ related projects. I’m still working through the teach yourself VC book, and it’s going quick. Not a great lesson on C++, but it does show how Microsoft Visual Studio works, which […]

I’ve been playing World of Warcraft now since almost launch, which is a long time by any measure. Two and a half years, with over 56 days of in-game time is quite a lot of my real life free time. So I’m quitting, cold turkey. Why leave? Well, aside from playing this game for what […]


Thursday Night Fun

August 23, 2007

Tonight our office decided to do an unofficial end-of-summer get-together at a local watering hole, and I just got back from said event. Fairly decent turnout and I got to chat with some folks who I don’t normally get to interact with for a change, which was nice. Not much else to say on that […]


Deep Thoughts

August 22, 2007

In Chris’ ongoing saga of continuous posting, here is the Wednesday Edition. Last night, I came home from work and immediately went Raiding in World of Warcraft from 20:00 until 02:00. That’s six hours, folks. Afterwards, having realized that I’d spent my entire day in front of a computer, almost half of that wasted in […]


More Posts, You Say?

August 21, 2007

So, apparently Kim has thrown down some kind of virtual gauntlet to post every day for some length of time. I can do that. As Matt and Jacques would say, “It’s turkey ice cream ON!” Last weekend was unremarkable. Played video games, did laundry, hung out with folks, yadda yadda. Oh, and Megs and I […]


I’ve Been Mocked!

August 9, 2007

So, it seems I’ve been slacking in my blogging duties, and I take my duty very seriously. I can’t let the younger generation pass me up like this for long. I think I still have everyone beat though, with my seven year streak of not missing at least a couple of posts a month, so […]
