It was also after a rather unpleasant experience in the bathroom involving things like pine cones, sharp rocks, or possibly a complete toy train with working steam engine that I decided I should stop while I’m…er…still *going* as it were.
That’s it…I’m quitting my job and joining Team Ryouko for proper ninja training. These guys are out of control! I’ve rarely seen such a collection of martial artists as these. Just check out some of their demonstrational videos and discover for yourself who pwns whom – pirates or ninjas. Google Videos: Ninja Training Team Ryouko… Continue reading Ninja Training
Some friends of mine, Brandon Smith and his wife, are running in the Arizona marathon on January 15th. They’re raising money for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, so it’s not just insane excercise but also a good cause. The donation site lists their progress and training goals along the way. As of October 8th, they… Continue reading Team in Training
Promise Technology, Inc. has proven to have some of the worst technical support in the world. It’s widely accepted that Promise’s ATA RAID controllers are among the best, but what good is a great controller if there’s no one to back it up in case of failure? My onboard RAID controller died so I purchased… Continue reading Broken Promises

They also have WETA doing their digital work and weapons/armor. I’m thrilled that they’ve made such great moves towards the success of this film. Because I know… Continue reading In Gaming News
I’ve spent that last two nights (Friday and Saturday night) playing Fable and Halo2 into the wee hours of the morning.

It’s addictive sport, if not for the game itself, then the peculiar human interaction within… Continue reading X + Y = Bar Brawl
Having been preoccupied nightly with Halo 2 and some friends on XBOX Live!, I’ve neglected the site a bit. The part that everyone sees, anyway. I’m working on some other things for the gallery, but I won’t talk to that until I have something more than vapor-ware. The Live! environment is rich with the young… Continue reading Time Well Spent
Halo 2 is out, so of course I’ll be dining on bullets tonight. We’ve put together a nice team of players including some Microsoft folks. I’ll report how it went tomorrow – while blearly-eyed and nodding off at work.
As is custom in many workplaces, today was a day of costume and creativity. Our campus was comprised of a number of people dressed-up in all manners. There was also a cube-decorating contest within each of our buildings. Being both a contractor and in temporary space, my team and I did nothing more than supply… Continue reading Halloween @ Work
We have Master Chief from Halo floating around the team area at work. He’s brilliantly posable, but alas, I don’t believe they’re for sale. This model is apparently supposed to be a marketing model (paraphernalia). Nonetheless, we’re anticipating seeing more of him with the release of Halo 2 soon.
