It's been a long time since I wrote on my blog... time to change that, with PROGRESS!
It's been over a year since I wrote anything here. That is a really long time, and I'm sorry that I haven't been able to get much done. There are all sorts of projects that have been left unfinished, but sometimes, life gets ...

I have created a game system, named "Caveman: Hunt! Invent! Survive!", a fully playable, fully documented, play-tested system that is easy to learn, fun to play, and focuses on silliness and every caveman cliché I could think of. It doesn't rely on any other game system (or science, for that matter). At this point, I have a 67 page near-publishable PDF, and a million questions about self-publishing.

I've been looking at RPGNow.com, and it looks like I could publish for free from there, less site costs. I don't expect to make much money, if any; however, I don't want to simply give it away, at least not at first. As much as I love free stuff, free games are far too easy to lose under the deluge of poor quality freebies already out there. If I can make a few dollars while making my game accessible to more people, so much the better!

Has anyone out there self-published an RPG (or anything similar)? If so, how did you do it? Any gotchas, specifically with the publishing process?

Awesome! Raspberry Pi has come a long way since its humble beginnings...
 
The photo from today's blog post shows Liz telling the Queen what a Raspberry Pi is at a UK Technology Industry reception at Buckingham Palace earlier this week. We announced the sale of our 3 millionth Raspberry Pi!
Apart from the bit where someone who shall not be named yanked a power cable early, corrupting our Minecraft demo SD card, and apart from the bit where we nearly got shot by an angry close protection officer when we read the map wrong and tried to use the wrong gate, we had a very smooth time of ...

MmmmMMmm Love me some Firefly. I could use either another movie right about now or better yet a new TV show!

On the brightside though Zachary Levi said a Chuck movie is in the works so there's that!

Vacation day 2:
Ate at a wonderful Indian restaurant, after picking up some gluten-free baked goods; we slept in, rode the DART (train), and managed not to get lost in Dallas. Next stop: Comic Con!

At Hootenanny, LeTourneau's annual "talent" show, for the 50th anniversary event! Fun times! Such in-jokes! Very laugh!

I don't post a lot; I probably should. So, here's a pun:

How'd she notice him? He was so hot, he'd cauterize from across the room...

You're welcome.
