True (if paraphrased) conversation:

Me: Ow! I cut myself slicing a bagel.

Wife: Did you forget our talk about knives, and cutting bagels?

M: Great, now I'm going to get sarcasm poisoning in my cut.

W: What?!? We don't have any sarcasm here, do we?

Daughter (9 yo, with a completely deadpan face): Nope, none at all.

My 7th grader and 4th grader, ready to roust the hamsters from their summer respite.


The hamsters that keep the wheels of their brains spinning, of course...

So I decided to start putting my Arduino to good (?) use. I’ve gotten some LEDs, an LCD panel, and a number of switches and buttons. So far, I have KSPSerialIO talking to my Arduino, and lighting up t

If you're looking for insane sim pits, check out the stuff people do for Falcon 4. It's amazing.

But that said, awesome job. Love seeing this. If I was better at hardware I'd be doing something like this, but I'm more on the software end.

My wife went to a yard sale, and reminded me that she loves me, even if she doesn't always understand me.

We don't really have the money for it either, but I did have a Dreamcast, one of the few consoles the seller has never played... Got an obsolete console off my hands. And got some great gaming stuff. That I'll probably play as much as my Dreamcast...

It's kind of sad when you foster a pet, and you inadvertently become their forever home.

On an unrelated note, digging in sandy soil is a pain as it keeps falling back into the hole.

So... My 7th grader has a friend from school who he vehemently argues is not his girlfriend. She has invited him to her sister's Sailor Moon marathon, and he's gotten me to buy a Sword Art Online manga based on her recommendation. I'm still deciding if I should be worried, or jealous (I didn't meet a geek girl until I got to college)...

Did I mention that she texted him photos of her cosplay at the local anime con?

Story
Tagline
Computer geek, father, husband, vicarious gamer, reader
Introduction
These are the things I am interested in:
  1. Role Playing Games
  2. Video Games
  3. Board Games (including miniatures games)
  4. Geekdom/Technology
  5. Programming (Android/Java, Perl, Javascript)
  6. Books & Movies (Sci-Fi & Fantasy mostly)
  7. Funny
  8. Parenting
I tend to post very little, but can often be counted on for snarky or obscure comments. I don't mind occasional political or religion/science posts, as long as they are respectful of alternate opinions (of course, I'm always willing to overlook that if they align with my own personal views).
 
If you post sexual/erotic content, please leave me out of those circles. I can mute public posts, but I'd just as soon not see the triggers... Besides, I'm usually on my work computer. :)
