It's a lonely world, looking for .NET 3.5 solutions to invalid Xml characters in your strings.
It's a little less lonely with this blog entry in it.

I had to parse that last sentence a couple of times.  I knew what it was trying to say, but even when using the appropriate internal voice, it was still doing my head in.
On the first day of what would be a depressing and alienating two-year trudge under the fluorescent lights of a rural high school, a soft-spoken bald man stood in front of my English class and looked at the ceiling as if trying to remember what he was going to say. "So. In the past few years, ...

Not quite. Install http redirection. It's a role service not installed by default.

Wow. Has it been that long? I guess it has. Getting a quick update out the way. In the last year, I've moved house, twice, and have been enjoying family lift with the little tyke and wife. I guess that's all the excuse I need, not to post here. I've also been playing Clash of Clans since January ...

I'm noticing the weapon in the pic. I've not seen the movie, and I probably won't get to see it until it's released on BD, so I'm wondering from the position of ignorance.

If that weapon is transformer tech, made out of the stuff that transformers are made of (they're always transforming limbs into weapons. could have been inspired by Astroboy), then why isn't "Why are you hitting/shooting yourself?" in there.

Surely Wahlberg got to repeated smash a transformer in the face with the butt of that thing.
 
:stare:
By now, anybody about to sit through a Michael Bay film knows what to expect: Lots of high-impact explosions, plenty of urban destruction, and an endless supply of bad, bloated dialogue. But the 165 mind-pummeling minutes of Transformers: Age of Extinctionrepresents a new high in low-brow one-liners, with nearly all the characters — human or otherwise – speaking as though they learned how to talk by watching WWE matches. But don’t take our word f...

I remember getting Dungeon Keeper, way back when. It was awesome.  Then Dungeon Keeper 2 came out, and I didn't think it looked different enough to warrant a purchase.
But for $10, DK2 and a whole bunch of other classics, wtf not.

BTW, I live under a rock. Steam and GOG sales could have been happening for quite some time. I just rarely jump on those gaming platforms any more.

aka Reubly Deubly
Introduction
From across the sea, I came to the Great Southern Land. Rake-ish and with a funny accent, it's been a strange time fitting in, but now, I'm simply me.

I've traveled afar, and have had fun while doing it.  I'm now in that settling down zone, with the house and the car and the little feet padding down the hallway.

My circle of friends is small and not quite circle shaped. I'm comfortable in solitude, and completely satisfied with the company of the one.

I enjoy computer games, music, my work, my home life.  I've got a baby daughter who is the center of my work. One day, I might get back to Tae Kwon Do, but for the moment, I satisfy my exercise with a run about the block.  It's a life balance that will hopefully see me kicking for quite some time to come.

When I get really old, I hope to be a grumpy old man with an active cane.  Though I suspect I'll be an old fart in baggy shorts, listing to the same 90s rock and grunge that I have been for the last decade.

I'm not playing games on G+ anymore.  It was fun while it lasted (Monster World, City of Wonder and Zombie Lane), but with the exception of Guild Wars 2 on my PC, most of my gaming is limited to what I can play on my iPhone.
