We rented a small PA for a month to see how it would improve our vocal sound. It worked well, so I watched the local used market all month and found a great deal on a PA. Turned out it was a bit larger than I thought; barely fit in my wagon.

Luckily it fit in the studio, so now we have 2400 watts of power in the studio. It has almost no hum, and sounds fantastic.

Anyone planning a house party, I'm the guy now!

It started with the cleaning out of the rest of the crappy insulation, then the strapping down of electrical, then the last bits of plumbing rough ins in the 30 degree attic heat.

Then there was the blood.

Then there was running out of rock-wool insulation.

Now there is the porch sitting in the sunshine with the 7 Hop IPA while I listen to Matchbox Twenty and de-sweat...

+Sebastian Woodland​ set up the basement for a play test of his homegrown wizarding rules for his Frozen Nights game. It's based on Savage Worlds and originally spawned from creative make-believe play with his brothers and friend in the back yard some 12 years ago.

He cobbled together a terrain board from the Osgiliath ruins I made him and bits and pieces of his and my terrain. What do you think?

Having so much fun with music these days. I picked up a new instrument on Tuesday, a 2011 Gibson SG short scale bass. Such a different tone than my other bass. Then I bought new flat wound chrome strings to really give it a different feel and sound.

I also did my first upgrade to my Geddy Lee signature edition jazz bass. I replaced the stock single-coil pickups with Dimarzio model J Humbuckers. They are so smooth and have much more gain than the originals. I also treated it to a new set of strings.

Lastly I learned the piano parts to Wish You Were Here, which is the next song we are working on. Also programmed up a respectable copy of the synth pad for it.

So much fun.

Yeah, but just for personal amusement, so I'm not terribly good. I mostly play the uke these days.

This Ralph Mcquarrie pre-production Darth on a R4-K5 stand is one of the geeky things adorning my office.

Also there is the Star Wars CCG Yoda "Do or do not" poster, the Enterprise-D cutaway poster, my "You don't know the power of the dark side!" water bottle and the matching note pad with lightsabre pen effects.

Plus my Novel Brainshare 06 "brainwash" scarf.

I should count and inventory mine as well. I think I have at least one geek shirt for each day of the month.

I don't usually do food posts, but tonight I made what my kids used to refer to as Daddy's delicious chicken. I almost never make it when the offspring aren't over, and it's pretty well the only thing I ever make in the deep fryer.

Ginger, lemon and garlic chicken strips. So good!

It is the type of book I like to read too. I just put it on hold at the library.

Put your bleep, bloop, VCO and filter knowledge to the test. Can you name these 10 classic synthesizers?

If I didn't already own all of the HackMaster 5th Edition books, I would be all over this bundle of holding. If you don't own them, here is your chance for an awesome deal.

The greatest role playing game ever made!
 
Through Monday, April 11 we present the HackMaster Bundle, featuring Kenzer and Company's tabletop fantasy roleplaying game HackMaster. It's one of the most unusual origins in the hobby: Originally a parody introduced in Jolly Blackburn's long-running gaming comic Knights of the Dinner Table, HackMaster has evolved into a full-fledged, serious (well, semi-serious) FRPG, spawning over 40 add-ons, supplements and game aids. HackMaster's lavish "Fifth Edition" has earned respect from Old School gamers everywhere. Now this offer gives you everything you need for your own HackMaster campaign, including all the core 5E titles, for a terrific bargain price.

Pay just US$12.95 get all four titles in our Player's Collection (retail value $47) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks:

- HackMaster 5E Player's Handbook (retail price $40): The complete, current 400-page Fifth Edition rulebook. Includes the free HackMaster Basic introductory rulebook.
- Zealot's Guide Books 1-2 (total retail $7): These two short supplements present new clerical orders and dozens of spells.
- HackMaster Player Resources: As a convenience to our customers, we've gathered many free HackMaster downloads from the Kenzer and Company website: charts and play aids, reference sheets, and more.

And if you pay more than the threshold (average) price, which is set at $27.95 to start, you'll level up and also get our entire GameMaster's Collection with three more titles (retail value $95):

- HackMaster 5E GameMaster's Guide (retail $40): This 370-page tome has rules, NPCs, treasure tables, and advice for every situation.
- Hacklopedia of Beasts 5E (retail $40): The massive, lavishly produced monster book that launched the HackMaster 5E project.
- Frandor's Keep (retail $15): A lonely military outpost on the creature-infested borderlands -- an ideal sandbox to start an adventuring career.
- Hackmaster GM Resources: More free downloads from the Kenzer website -- adventures to help the HM GameMaster. There's even an Android app to track combat!

That's a US$142 value for a price that would make B. A. Felton's group rush to "Weird Pete" Ashton's Games Pit. Ten percent of your purchase (after gateway fees) goes to this offer's designated charity, Reading is Fundamental.

Make sure all the knights at your dinner table get the HackMaster Bundle before it ends Monday, April 11.

I'm tempted, but the reality is that I'm absolutely awful at reading purchased pdf's.  The one I'd need is the GM's bundle, since I don't own the GMG yet, but again... terrible at pdf's.  I'd much rather get it in hardback at some point.

Story
Tagline
"If you don't get at it, when you get to it, you won't get to it 'till you get at it again."
Introduction
I grew up in, and live in the west coast of Canada, on Vancouver Island. I have always had a great desire to create things, and a lifelong love of technology. 

I am not always an early adopter of technology, but have spent over 20 years designing, building, and supporting computer networks as my primary career.

I love music and taught myself synthesizer programming in the early 80's. I can chord my way through a song on keyboards, play bass reasonably well, and am working on my singing.

I have had a love of games since as far back as I can remember and was introduced to Dungeons and Dragons in 1979. I've enjoyed traditional roleplaying games ever since. My first published gaming books came out in 2011: Darwin's World for the Savage Worlds rules system (a conversion of the original d20 setting)
Bragging rights
Married twice, four kids, two cats. Built a recording studio in my garage (including the garage). Made LavaLand (see links). Won Geek & Sundry's Tabletop Wired Geekdad Video Contest (See links).
