I Was Bad Today…

I was bad today, I splurged and went and bought more books. Which wouldn’t normally be a bad thing (books are good and the world would be a happier place if more people read more) except that I have two shelves with fifty-two (yes, 52) books on it that are still waiting for me to […]

Funeral and Fun

Spent a chunk of yesterday watching the funeral procession for Teddy Kennedy. Impressive to see how many people turned out for it, how many showed up just to stand on the side of the road and watch all the cars go by. Been interesting watching the programs about his life as well and how much […]

For Want of Bookshelves

I need more bookshelves. All of my shelves are full, and I really do mean full. Books are lined up along the shelves, stacked on their side across the top of those books, and then in front of them on the bare bit of space left there is another stack of books.



Man, it is Thursday already. The week just shot by. Almost September as well, this year has just been shooting by.

Distracted by thought of Champions Online, the book I’ve been reading, the pile of compost in my driveway I need […]

Stupid Weather

Long day today. Wouldn’t have been that bad except the weather in Oregon has just been wrong this year. A long time ago, in a place just on the other side of town, I was a child growing up in Portland. Way back then 90+ degree weather was something that happened on one or two […]

CO – XBox Controller Button Mapping


First Day of CO Play

It is way too late right now, but I figured I’d get this posted before I called it a night.

Got the Open Beta client working at about noon and logged into Champions Online for the first time. I have to say, to start this with, I have been waiting for this game (and alternatively […]
