I saw Avengers: Age of Ultron on Sunday and I had a blast! This is, without a doubt.. one of my favorite movie.. ever..! I had a grin the whole time and never watched the time.. even to check if the movie was almost over or not. All I wanted was see more.. and more.. and more. I was glorious. 

Now, I undusted my comic book and reading them again. Installed a bunch of Marvel games on my phone and I'm planning to install Marvel Heroes again.. if I get some time to play in the next few days.

Marvel, I only have one advice for you. Find a way to make reading comic books on a cellphone realistic. Change the format if you need to. Make your stories/art work on a cellphone in some way and I'll be sticking around. I subscribed to Marvel Unlimited last year but I won't be able to keep it up because reading offline didn't work well on my tablet and reading was kind of a pain too. :(

This morning, I was applying some wall decals in Liam's future room What do you guys think? We found these retro decals at IKEAs for about 10$. I have more than I could put up but I fear overcharging.

My wife (+Caroline Lévesque) and I got ourselves our Valentine day present. It took ages to configure everything. I even transfered my Wii to it. It's kind of crazy in 2015 to have to use an SD Card to transfer stuff from one console to the next. Took a while but I played 30 minutes of Super Mario 3D World and Bayonetta and both are awesome. Now, I only have to wait a few weeks to get a New 3DS XL. :D

Today's loot. Pretty happy. If only I could find Skyward Sword, I'd be really happy! I finished my FF13 Set though. ☺

That's crazy! I never thought the impacts could be so great and so quick. Having your life turned upside-down and being shamed constantly must be debilitating. That kind of remind of of the time when a Wired writer took my blog post and decided to make fun of my whole text. I wasn't ashamed at the time but it didn't bring me anything either. They just made fun of my english and the fact that I was young. 

There was no discussion about the content of my message or anything. Reading this article now.. it could have been worse. WAY WORSE.

.NET Programmer, gaming enthusiast
Introduction

I've always loved programming.  It was video-games that made me want to become what I am. Working for Ubisoft was the dream of my life for many years. I liked drawing too but I loved computers as well so I was pumped in 2003 when I started my DEC in Computer Science. I went through it, learned A LOT and finished 3 years later, ready to become a programmer. I worked for NeXion / Connexion-Lanaudière, a web company that specialized in the creation of small business website. I learned more stuff there then I dare realize, thanks to the wonderful  people I met there. I was not done however. In 2010, I became a Bachelor in Software Engineering after studying 4 years at the École de Technologie Superieure. Even before I finished my degree, I started working for SNC-Lavalin Inc as an analyst-programmer. I work there to this day.

Food was perfect. Service was unwelcoming and cold even though we were almost alone.

Hamburger was alright. There didn't bring anything but ketchup or Mayo to put in it. French fries were way too salty. The waitress are constant fear of wardrobe malfunction which is both funny and sad. Service was fast and painless.

Service was lame but at least, it was fast. I took the cheapest plate and it tasted good. Work if you're going in a group. Do not go there on a date.

Great experience! I ate a Smoked Meat Poutine and it was pretty tasty and good. We were a group of 10 people and the service was impressively fast compared to other restaurant in the area. I recommend it if you want to eat some Fast Food.

Great special where 2 people can eat for 22$. Food is really good. Service was perfect! It can be a little noisy because people often bring kids or come in group. Check it out.
