The Write Stuff

September 10, 2008

I’m falling behind in my blogging, I feel. Not a whole lot goin’ on, but I’ll write about it all the same. Work is going well. I’m still on team Pirates, and we’re plugging away on new features, performance enhancements, and bug fixes. If you haven’t tried the game yet, please do so. It’s free […]



December 6, 2007

Allow me to get expository here for a moment. My industry, video games, has been taking a lot of flack lately in the media for some of its content. That the Entertainment Software Ratings Board (ESRB) doesn’t do enough to protect the children from the violent games. What I’d like to point out is that […]


Bad Night

November 6, 2007

Last night was kinda sucky. Don’t know why, but I was just extra anxious for no good reason. Maybe it was the crappy burrito I had for right before dinner, and maybe it was because I kinda missed lunch and snacked on candy most of the day. And I could swear I was smelling breakfast […]


Seattle Bound

October 18, 2007

Did I mention that Megs and I are going up to Seattle this weekend? I feel like I should have, in case I did not. Some friends from college are finally getting married, so we’re gonna be there for that. In other news, I’ve been playing a lot of Valve’s famous Orange Box lately. If […]


Free Games

October 15, 2007

Hey, anyone out there have Steam, yet need Half Life 2 and/or Half Life 2: Episode 1? I’ve got a free copy of both to give away. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, this probably doesn’t apply to you.



August 24, 2007

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 […]


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 […]


One Game to Rule Them All

November 16, 2004

I went out and bought Half-Life 2 today on my lunch break. About a year and a half ago, I paid $5 toward it back in Eugene at Software Etc. to reserve my copy, but I wasn’t expecting it’d take this long to actually come out. The original release date was Sep 30th, 2003 and […]


Glad It’s Friday

November 13, 2004

Why am I glad? Do I need a reason? Always just liked the weekends, is all. Today went well. I moved some computers around in the conference room and installed/uninstalled some software. Good times. The big plans for this weekend are to go out shopping and get Megs some LSAT prep material on tape or […]


Gainfully Employed, She Is

November 10, 2004

The big news for today is that Megan is now fully employed at the Westfield Corporation, where she had been temping until today when she was made a full time employee. This brought much joy to our week and she is still quite excited about it. The compensation package is much better than it was […]
