Hello, Senator Lieberman? There's another crackpot gamer on line 3.

Mork plays video games? Somehow I'm not surprised. While Mr. William's is 100% accurate with his comparison to crack cocaine, that he's willing to talk about it is yet another proof that gaming is becoming more and more legitimate.

Linkage!

 
If you can afford to read two more articles this week...

...Read this one first, then read what the The BlogFather has to say about it.

It's a surprisingly apt analogy, but then I regularly whine about feeling the same way personally. That goes double if I've just gotten to work after taking the Interstate.

 
Meanwhile...

Still working on the HERO 5th Edition review. Hopefully I'll even be able to post it without a great deal of reworking.

 
If you only read one article this week...

...MAKE IT THIS ONE!

I've made the point that article's headline does for years. I've got to start checking more Christian blogs :)

And now, another experiment...

You are 38% geek
You are a geek liaison, which means you go both ways. You can hang out with normal people or you can hang out with geeks which means you often have geeks as friends and/or have a job where you have to mediate between geeks and normal people. This is an important role and one of which you should be proud. In fact, you can make a good deal of money as a translator.

Normal: Tell our geek we need him to work this weekend.


You [to Geek]: We need more than that, Scotty. You'll have to stay until you can squeeze more outta them engines!


Geek [to You]: I'm givin' her all she's got, Captain, but we need more dilithium crystals!


You [to Normal]: He wants to know if he gets overtime.

There came a great moment in history...

I FINALLY got a copy of Fifth Edition HERO System Rules, thanks to Noble Knights games. I also got a copy of the NEW Ultimate Martial Artist, which surprises me -- I was expecting the old one, which I had never gotten around to getting.

Unlike Ann Coulter's Slander, I'll try to actually get a review of this one up.
