Hey didja know I write games cause I totally write games

Thursday, August 5th, 2010

It’s been a Big Release Tuesday around here, except it wasn’t Tuesday and I didn’t release anything particularly big. I’ll start again. I’ve finally put out a new “pen-and-paper style” RPG ruleset for public consumption. I developed it for a game competition several months ago and decided it was pretty keeno, so here you go. […]

I just read a really, really stupid article about how everyone is clamoring for touchpads (you know, those nasty little inaccurate panels on notebooks) and how nobody likes using a mouse and they’ll be obsolete soon because somebody came out with a NEW even more amazing touchpad. The future, he posited, will be 100% touchpads. […]

Google voice is go

Tuesday, July 27th, 2010

This is a test of me posting to my blog using only my voice in wordpress for my google android phone. Hey not bad. Punctuation could use some work though. Ah well.

An open dialogue with a dork

Tuesday, July 13th, 2010

One of the “perks” (short for “perrrrks”) of having my own blog is that I can respond to chwads like this guy without having to sign into their site and give them ad revenue, as described in my previous blogging adventure. So. Already casting aspersions on Google’s incredibly generous ability for people to self-program their […]

I’m a web developer/designer by trade, which in practice means I create sites from concept to planning to development to deployment. That makes me kinda weird all in all, because it means I have to be both a big froo-froo right-brained graphic designer and a heartless technology wonk. Thus am I a pariah. For instance, […]

I’m about to be controversial! Watch out! HERE COMES THE CONTROVERSY!

Monday, June 21st, 2010

Half the “Sci/Tech” news I see on Google News these days is either “The 8 greatest video games of all time” or “12 reasons why Apple has its head up its butt.” Inevitably, all of these stories have a huge list of comments in the vein of “YU DONT KNO WHAT U TALKIN ABOUT NO […]

You know, it’s often in your own best interest to check your old email accounts occasionally, because you might miss a notice from your registrar that your URL is about to expire. Just a tip.

Move and Kinect: the gateways to Failtown

Thursday, June 17th, 2010

I’ve been keeping up with the E3 Expo going on in LA. The general consensus is that Nintendo has “won” this year, even with some technical glitches in the presentation, mostly by not making huge fools of themselves like everyone else. Penny Arcade has it exactly right in this strip. But what’s so wrong with […]

I, too, was wrong about the iPad

Wednesday, June 16th, 2010

Much like Joe Wilcox, I have to admit I was wrong about the Apple iPad. Mea culpa, sackcloth and ashes, etc. Earlier I said it was pretty much a useless piece of metal and plastic. But now I’ve come around: I’m convinced it’s a completely useless piece of metal and plastic. Every argument I’ve seen […]

Why I gotta be such a potty-mouth?

Monday, June 14th, 2010

A few updates ago I used a pretty “foul” word several times. I did this advisedly, unlike most other Interweb denizens for whom such speech is punctuation, because (a) everybody that I care might ever read this blog is already familiar with most swears, and (b) it was funny. Look, Society in General Reduced to […]
