That was exciting. Last night, Postmaster went nuts and screwed up a bunch of my e-mails. I spent most of the night in a bad mood as I struggled to re-index the mails properly, before finding an app on BeBits that fixed the problem in about ten seconds. :sigh: In any event, I got my tax relief check yesterday, so this morning — after I was woken up at 7:00 by my nieces — I stopped by my bank and deposited it. I’ve […]

Well, I tried to open a business checking account for Otherspace Productions this morning, only to discover that I needed a business license before they’ll open the account. I ended up driving to a local government facility to apply for a business license (which I didn’t need because the business will have under $10,000 in revenue, but I got it anyway) and a Residential Occupancy Permit (which I also didn’t need, but I got anyway). I then opened […]

I see that AtheOS version 0.3.5 just came out. This version comes with a web browser (based on Konqueror) and numerous bug fixes. Cool. I didn’t make it to church this morning, thanks to a splitting headache. I did manage to see the last two episodes of Neon Genesis Evangelion, thanks to a loan (and some urgings) from Saalon. The last episodes of Evangelion amazed and impressed me. The last episode, in particular, presented a complex […]

Fair quiet, have I found thee here,And innocence, thy sister dear!Mistaken long, I sought you thenIn busy companies of men.Your sacred plants, if here belowOnly among the plants will grow.Society is all but rude,To this delicious solitude. — from “The Garden”, Andrew Marvell (1621–1678) Blood and ashes, this is a beautiful day. There is only a smattering of clouds; the sun is bright, the humidity has fled like a beaten […]

I got very little done last night, though it was not through lack of trying on my part. I called my sister to get some insight into small business incorporation but she wasn’t home. I called Saalon just to chat, but he wasn’t home. I’d only had five hours of sleep the night before, so after doing my devotions (and reading about William of Ockham, the theologian who invented Occam’s […]

Well, I managed to stay up way too late last night, chatting with Brennen and Gulthek on Gul’s new IRC server (, port 6667) and mucking about with Blender tutorials. Blender‘s a totally free 3D modelling and animation package. It’s quite powerful, but is marred by an interface that’s anywhere from “very different” to “non-intuitive” to “nuts,” depending on who you ask. Still, I can get used to funky […]

I must admit, I am proud of myself. I came home at 10:30 from a night out with friends, and proceeded to do my devotions, check my e-mail, and practice drawing. I could have abandoned it and instead gone directly to bed, but no! I kept up with it. See, I have trouble saying “No” to myself. I often procrastinate on projects — even fun ones — because I don’t want to do them right now. […]

So, yesterday I posed the question: should I spread myself out amongst multiple projects? In organizing my thoughts on this topic, I listed the projects that I’m involved in. The list is quite long, and now that I’m looking at it, I’m trying to figure out the projects I should cut down on. The question that I’m facing is this: Which of these projects would take up the most time (if I were […]

Well, Cartoon Network made the big announcement: they’ll be showing Cowboy Bebop this fall. And as Saalon pointed out, there’s really not much for them to edit. I taped the first episode of Mobile Suit Gundam, and watched it tonight. It’s…frankly, amazing. It’s uncompromisingly brutal in its depiction of war (heck, dozens of people die right in front of the camera), and unexpectedly dramatic. There’s an innovative purity to its storytelling. I’m actually […]

Got an e-mail the other day from the Otakon folks, and it looks like my music video “Deathdance” won’t be in the contest. They got 150 videos and only had room for 38. Of course, they’ll try to show all of the others in the overflow rooms, but…:sigh: that’s disappointing, especially since I got my video in very early. I went over to McLean Bible Church this morning to talk about the Redemption game. Only two people […]
