It's like family, only weirder…

Kibbles Wrap-Up

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.

Ninja Training

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…Continue Reading

Team in 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.…Continue Reading

Broken Promises

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…Continue Reading

The Bungie team is making headway on their project to create Halo, the movie. To make an awesome start, they got Peter Jackson to direct produce the film.

X + Y = Bar Brawl

I’ve spent that last two nights (Friday and Saturday night) playing Fable and Halo2 into the wee hours of the morning. I play on XBOX’s Live service, so there’s a collection of friends I can call upon to game with. It’s addictive sport, if not for the game itself, then…Continue Reading

Time Well Spent

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…Continue Reading

Tonight We Play!

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.

Halloween @ 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…Continue Reading

Master Chief

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.
