Pumpkin Carving 2007

By | October 31, 2007

So its that time of year again. The air is crisp, the days are much shorter, and the grass in the back yard is covered in leaves from the neighbor’s trees. Tonight shivering street urchins will be knocking at the door in a variety of costumes begging for candy. My candy. Not yours. Can’t have. Okay, fine, you… Read More »

Home Improvement – Part 2

By | September 25, 2007

We got the first coat of paint on the walls on Sunday and the room immediately transformed, still no appropriate adjectives — Jessica says that her choices for colors escape description. Of course now she wants a theme song, too. Something that speaks to her personality. The Pinky and the Brain theme song comes closest for her, I… Read More »

Halloween 2006, Better Late Than Never

By | September 23, 2007

After Jessica saw what I had posted today, we had the following IM conversation: [11:55:49 AM] <Truffle> there’s a gnome in the first set of pics [11:56:05 AM] <gottafixthat> LOL. Of course there is. [11:56:12 AM] <Truffle> gack! [11:56:18 AM] <gottafixthat> [11:56:20 AM] <Truffle> oh, and I’m mad at you [11:56:24 AM] <gottafixthat> Why? [11:56:33 AM] <Truffle> you… Read More »

Home Improvement – Part 1

By | September 23, 2007

Since we moved into our house back in early 2003, we’ve slowly but surely been redecorating rooms and fixing the place up. We’ve had a few people live with us in that time, and each time, Jessica has always sacrificed her space. The first time was her sister, who was escorted out by the Sheriff in handcuffs (thats… Read More »

Gothic 3 – First Impressions

By | November 26, 2006

After a very long wait, Aspyre has finally released Pirahna Bytes’ Gothic 3 in the states. Jessica and I picked it up last Saturday and have been playing it every evening since then. I would say we’re about 20% of the way through the game at this point, so I thought I would post my first impressions on… Read More »

Halloween 2006

By | October 31, 2006

Its that time of year again! No, not that time, its Halloween! That of course means pumpkin carving. After last year’s marathon session on October 30th, we decided to get an earlier start this year. Got them on last weekend’s shopping trip and planned our Sunday around carving the unsuspecting cucurbita pepos. We must be getting better at… Read More »

Still in a time warp

By | October 22, 2006

That last post about Gothic II, model trains and Al Lowe’s new game I started back in May. It took me almost 5 months to get back to it. Talk about being in a long term time warp. There have been a lot of things happening at my company, most of which I can’t talk about publicly because… Read More »

Gaming time warp

By | October 21, 2006

Talk about out of character for me. A few weeks ago at E3, Al Lowe, one of the greatest video game makers of all time announced that he has created a new company called iBase Entertainment and was creating a new game called Sam Suede in Undercover Exposure. I’ve been a big fan of Al’s since the Leisure… Read More »

And there was much rejoycing. Yay!

Study Shows Coffee OK For Heart From the article:  “Coffee lovers can drink up without fear of increasing their risk of heart disease, according to a major new study that found people could consume as many as six cups a day without upping their risk.” This is excellent!  So now I just need to get it down to… Read More »

MP3 Box Issues

By | January 1, 2006

Well, a few days ago Jessica started having problems with it. The box started locking up. Took a bit of effort to get it back online again (since its headless), three or four reboots before everything came back in. Not happy. My first guess is that it is heat related. The only fan in the unit is the… Read More »
