I loved Stranger Things! It was a little bit campy and cheesy, but in a charming retro 80's kind of way. It's a sci-fi, suspense, thriller, horror show, that's not particularly gory and doesn't do cheap jump scares. I want more! :-)

My daughter found a centipede when she was walking the dog this morning. It's rare to see them out in the sunlight. She was positively freaked by how big it was.

This video came out before the horrible shootings last night in Dallas. It's extremely relevant though. I'm pro black lives and pro cop lives. America has a problem with police, and it needs to be acknowledged and fixed. That does not give anyone the right to murder police officers. We can not fix this problem as divided groups, we must be united.

I enjoyed Out There, (and the Omega update) quite a bit. Looking forward to trying Out There Chronicles. I'm too busy right now to pick up a new game, but it's high on my list once I have more time. You should try it if you are looking for a new game.

Sweet! I finally got the achievement "Adventure time"! I'm not sure what all I was missing, but Mega Taiga Hills was the last one.

I was inspired, by the announcement of the new mini NES announced the other day, to get an emulator and play some of my old NES games. I wasn't amazing, but I was pretty good for not playing it in such a long time. It's odd to think that there's a section of my brain wired and ready to play Marble Madness, Super Mario Bros, or Tetris. Why brain, why do you remember that?

While I grew up with the NES, I don't have fond memories of it since the SNES had just come out. The leap in the quality of games was so dramatic. It was 2D perfection.

The way Magic Leap describes MR, is how I think of advanced AR. I guess I'll change the terminology I use. :-) I really want to believe they can deliver, and as soon as they say. I have a hard time not being biased because I'm so excited. I think, at the very least, that they get it. They understand what MR should be. Microsoft's HoloLens gets it as well, but it sounds like they've chosen the wrong underlying technology. I'll give them a close second. Pure AR? Pointless and not going to be mainstream or even around in 5 years. It might still be a minor feature available on MR headsets, but it won't be standalone.
 
Great interview. They're launching high volume production this summer, apparently, and people are supposed to be comfortable wearing it in front of people. I couldn't be more pumped that they'll be ready so soon. Even if it's expensive and has a short battery, it'd still be a big deal.

Oops! Gave myself a second, and maybe slightly a third, degree burn last night. It's not painful at all, actually, but it looks bad. Accidentally touched the charcoal chimney after I poured the coals out. I usually set it on a rack under the ash pan, but there wasn't enough space because the ash pan wasn't locked in correctly. I was trying to put the ash tray in correctly while still holding the chimney. Note to self, don't move heavy (ish) objects in tight spaces when they are scorching hot. The top part of the burn, closest to the knuckle isn't a blister, it's just a white layer of skin, almost like a callus. That's the part that may be a third degree burn. Luckily, it's only burnt directly where I touched it.

I've been searching for a Mushroom Island for what seems like forever on our main multiplayer server. I've found them a few times on other servers, but never our "home". I've been trying to complete all the achievements. The only two remaining ones are Adventuring Time and On a Rail. At some point, I'll get around to making a 1km track. I thought for sure with all of our exploring that Mushroom island was the last one on the list. Unfortunately, there are more biomes than I realized. Here's a good guide if you want to earn the achievement too! Now I just have to visit the ones that I think I could be missing. Too bad it doesn't tell you which ones you've already visited.

Nerdy freethinking dad.
Introduction
I'm just like this guy, you know? I'm a geek/nerd. I like technology, computers, smart phones, and video games. I'm happily married to a wonderful, beautiful woman. I have two kids, my daughter is ten, and my son is eight. I love spending time with my family; they are my everything.

I'm currently spreading my time between family, work, school (working on my BS in IT), video games, and technology/gadgets. If you see me looking down, I'm probably fossil hunting. You can expect me to post things about those topics. I personally use Android, and Windows, but I also work with Linux. You can expect me to talk about those things as well.

I'm hopelessly optimistic about the future and the positive affect that technology will have on our lives. I'm also hopelessly unable to distinguish the difference between affect and effect, and when you should use one or the other. This may affect some people more than others.
