As I was passing by a library on Thursday, I stopped in and got an audiobook of Sun Tzu’s The Art of War, one of the all-time great treatises on warfare. It turns out to be a translation with a lot of commentary and a very long introduction (the introduction has chapters). I’m about halfway through it now, and I’m enjoying it greatly. I’ve already read the book twice, but it’s worth reviewing every so often. The sleepover last night […]

I’m going to be very busy over the coming week or so, so bear with me. Here’s my itinerary: Friday — A deadline at work, followed by a sleepover at McLean Bible Church, with the AWANA kids. Saturday — The sleepover ends, and I go to Coffee and Classics at 10:30 a.m. to discuss more of Spurgeon’s All of Grace. I have a respite Saturday afternoon and evening, leading into… Sunday — Church in the morning, followed by Lauren (my niece’s) […]

Your quote for the day: “Video games do *not* effect kids. Take Pac-Man for example, if that were true all we would do is run arround munching pills and listening to repetive musi…wait!” I see that Neko Neko Wai has been officially set up. The whole phenomenon is hard to explain…I proudly display a NNW sticker on my truck’s rear bumper, despite nobody really knowing what NNW […]

Woah. I see that Toonami has got a new Reactor area, which will eventually contain a persistent online world centered around Toonami content. They’re kicking it off by streaming episodes of Dragonball Z and Star Blazers. That’s right, Toonami’s going to show Star Blazers, a.k.a. Space Battleship Yamato. Streaming. Free to watch. Cooooool. What’s even more amazing is the feedback form. Particularly, they ask […]

Spent a lot of time with Saalon and Brennen last night, discussing the new character designs for Wine. They liked designs that I didn’t, and the ones that I liked, they didn’t like. And while it is my project and ultimately my choice, I’ve asked for more designs to look over before deciding. Wine is progressing nicely, though. The character designs are getting very close to what I want, and they look gorgeous. What […]

I’m getting seriously addicted to playing Quake 2, now that I’ve found the glory of bots (bots with skins, too). Right now I’m playing with CRbots that look like Battle Angel Alita, a battle droid from The Phantom Menace, a Valkyrie transformable fighter from Macross/Robotech, Priss from Bubblegum Crisis (original) in her hardsuit, and Soundwave (the Decepticon Transformer). Man, is this fun. Meanwhile, last […]

Oooooh, neobaka t-shirts. I want one. Certainly should wear one the next time the small army of neobaka crew gets together, which should probably be at Otakon (Eeek, which I should register for before I forget). I also stumbled across this very cool site: PC Mods. They sell ridiculously geeky things for computer cases. They’ve got windows (actual windows in the side of the case, that is), applique labels […]

Wow. Some guy is trying to make his own SF series, and boy is he…ummmm…optimistic. He seems to think he can cast every single crewmember on the ship (and keep them cast), and produce it for PBS. Meanwhile, I got up early this morning and worked on my garden for almost two hours before heading in to work. What is it about gardens that would make me, a guy who considers […]

Wow. I have an eBay auction going for some old computer games (Quest for Glory I through III, specifically — great games, but I don’t see myself ever playing them again). Remind me to take down that link when it inevitably succumbs to rot. But anyway, it’s three old games. How much could I expect to sell them for? The current bid is USD $20.50 […]

Was going to write a long entry today, but since I just managed to fall asleep for several seconds, I think I’ll go to bed instead, and summarize the weekend in tomorrow’s entry.

I work for Amazon. The content on this site is my own and doesn’t necessarily represent Amazon’s position.
