My birthday present from +Bayden Woodland​ ​​finally showed up. 28mm Otherworld pig-faced orcs, plus some Microworld pixies.

Pretty awesome!

Oh, yeah. And a Crypt Thing.

Actually, I'm getting kinda superstitious about it.  If he gets painted, he'll probably die for sure.

G+ FTW!
 
We know Google+ isn't dead. Please +1 and re-share to help us prove it!

When I talk to clients in Australia about Google plus, many of them reply that they “heard it was dead” or something similar.

It seems that negative opinions about this wonderful platform reach more ears than all the positive aspects of Google plus that active users have experienced and know to be true.

Let’s share our support of Google+ as a fantastic platform, particularly for:

- really getting connected with people
- generating engagement around your content
- tapping into the value of communities
- getting your online content found in Google search
- Hanging out
- plus discovering content, laughing at funny stuff and enjoying magnificent photos.

To show your support of Google+, please + 1 this post.

The number of +1’s will accumulate on the article at the link a bit like signatures on a virtual petition showing that real people really interact on Google plus and we want to prove it to the world!

The more +1’s, the more we can show evidence that Google+ is not dead, and is, in fact, truly awesome.

Just killing time in Florida, so why not support a Kickstarter on the early elements of design. Most of you have probably never heard of Ladislav Sutnar. Well neither had I, but I happen to love good visual design, so I figured that owning a reprint of this book would be pretty cool.

By cramming four Disney Theme parks and Downtown Disney into one 13 hour day, I managed nearly 30,000 steps and 17.5 miles walked. Well, more like power-walked.

One thing about doing theme parks alone, you can really cruise through the crowd. Plus you get to use the single rider line much of the time.

Laundry done, mowing done, cardboard laid out on weedy patch, and summer table and chairs out on the deck.

+Jon Woodland Sounds excellent. The porch sitting, not the 15 hours of travel. Say hi to the Zip for me. I'm just heading to bed. See you Saturday, sweetie.

mostly decent examples of the styles on tap. nothing ever blows me away at BJs. there's a double entendre somewhere in that phrasing.

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).
