Simplifying sounds good.
Now to get my character past level 8 (I haven't played in a while!)...
A new era for Bungie's space shooter Destiny is coming. Not only was it announced that Peter Dinklage would no longer voice every Guardian's trusty bot companion, we also got news that the once convoluted level cap system would be simplified with The Taken King expansion. Before you roll your eyes, this upcoming redesign is encouraging for long time players. The news comes from one of Game Informer's recent visits to the developer's studio. First...

Hooray! Also, I'm terribly upset being new to CO and a huge fan of Bells...I didn't know they didn't distribute here!

I'm done with passwords. Ready for the biometric chip implant. Bring it.

Yes I'm using a password manager (chrome). But it doesn't work in all situations (neither would lastpass or another one). Often the password it has on file is wrong which means I have to reset it (again).

Remembering passwords is a lost cause since every site seems to have different requirements. Spaces allowed or not? Must have a capital letter or doesn't matter? Required numbers? Special characters? The variety of requirements has made memorizing passwords impossible and necessitates a password manager which only works if it's accessible. Using an app on your phone? On your own. Different computer or browser? Nope. 

Wire me up. We're living in the future, right? How much longer before biometrics is widespread? Can I just hibernate until then?

+Contrafact Homebrew Saison 2015. Summer's hot, great time to crank out a saison.

This one is bittered with Nugget, flavored with Saaz and Spalt, then dry-hopped with Saphir. 

Came out tasty and refreshing with mild, pleasant funk from the saison yeast. Great summer brew!

I started at Kiryu Aikido in 2009 after training for over 15 years in a variety of styles. I enjoy the consistent attention to basics and weapon work (staff and wooden sword) and how the weapon movements help our open hand techniques. Andrew Blevins sensei constantly pushes us to improve by both focusing on technical details and working just outside our comfort zones so we can continue to move forward in our understanding of aikido.
