Homicide! Not even manslaughter. Not that I'm unsatisfied about the sentencing.

So, Valve removed paid mods from Skyrim.
We're going to remove the payment feature from the Skyrim workshop. For anyone who spent money on a mod, we'll be refunding you the complete amount. We talked to the team at Bethesda and they agree. We've done this because it's clear we didn't understand exactly what we were doing.

Photos of looting from the on-going Baltimore riots. I imagine the people most disgusted by these images are the ones protesting peacefully. These idiots ruin everything they stand for.

Story

Research Tech, Miniature Painter, Gadget Enthusiast, Anime Watcher, PC Gamer.
Introduction
I'm a research technician in the U.S. preparing to go to medical school. On the web, I often go by the screen name kkendd. Please don't ask what that means; it really is just a random sequence of letters that I came up with many years ago during the dial-up era when I began to form an online presence, and is most definitely NOT related to the classic video game KKND.

I enjoy modelling and painting 28mm-scale miniatures, and lately have been working on Games Workshop's Warhammer 40,000 series miniatures.

I also am a gadget enthusiast, and am nerdy enough to enjoy customizing them. I try to keep up with the latest tech news. I use a custom built desktop, built by me.

I love traveling, although I have little time to go anywhere these days.

Lastly, I make sure I don't lose my Asian-ness by watching the latest Japanese anime.

I'm fluent in English and Korean, and can manage to communicate in the most basic way in Japanese.

I run a Twitter account in Korean (@kkendd). My Google+, on the other hand, will almost exclusively be in English.
Bragging rights
I was on a local newspaper when I was in highschool; My painted miniature was presented on the BBC; I graduated from the University of Notre Dame; I have a Master's Degree in science.

The Latest Idolmaster Anime is Somewhat Lacking

Cute anime girls on stage singing and dancing... S’okay, but I feel I should be more entertained than I actually am.

Before I start, I must state that I know nothing about cats, but I love them nonetheless. The Cat Cafe is a cafe that has adoptable cats. It's the "adoptable cats" part that I have a problem with. I do believe the intention is good, but for me, I was expecting to enjoy a relaxing time with playful cats. However, I felt that most cats were on edge because the cafe wasn't their home. Many of them didn't want to be bothered, and a few even seemed nervous/hostile. I stress again that I know nothing about cats, but I would think that cats would be a little more friendly if this place was their permanent home. As a customer, I expected the experience to be similar to that of visiting a house with friendly cats, not that of visiting an animal shelter with coffee. Just to avoid any misunderstandings, I do support animal adoption; I just didn't think that's what the Cafe was about.

The signature Apple Pancake is huge! I went alone for a brunch, and the puffy pancake really is for two people. The apple & cinnamon combination is fairly standard, but the pancake is so smooth that it melts in your mouth. The orange juice is fresh squeezed and delicious. I wanted to try their egg dishes too, but it was simply impossible after the giant pancake. The coffee is forgettable, but still goes well with the pancake.

Historically significant, forgettable experience. General admission is $3.50, but despite the relatively low price, I don't think it's worth it. There are a few furnitures inside used by Paul Revere himself, but not a single memorable artifact can be found. The tour is self-guided, and you'll see a few rooms, each with stationed guides.

I've read some negative reviews about the Warren Tavern concerning food quality and service, but my experience was very pleasant. I went for dinner and had the special sirloin with a pint of Guinness, finished with bread pudding. I can't say the food was unforgettable, but it was better than the average pub food, and the unique atmosphere and the kind waitress made up for the experience. I recommend the Warren Tavern.

Went to Puesto for a business lunch and had tacos. Puesto has delicious guacamole and chips for appetizer, and had a variety of fun, tasty tacos. I had the tuna taco, lobster taco, and cactus taco. All three were very good. The atmosphere is also very nice. Puesto fully utilizes the fantastic San Diego weather and provide a semi-indoor environment that is just perfect. I would recommend Puesto.

Union Oyster House is worth a visit for its historical significance, but not for quality. I had the Union special lobster with a cup of clam chowder to start, but both were mediocre. The lobster was no better than a typical chain restaurant's, and that's disappointing for a reputable place like the UOH. As a bonus, I would've been charged for two lobsters when I only had one, had I not caught the incorrect charge on my bill. I'd like to think it was an honest mistake, but I thought it's a story worth sharing. Other than that, the service was in fact satisfactory, but the wait for seating was long. Be sure to make a reservation.

Live jazz and tasty brunch, The Court of Two Sisters gives you exactly what they promise. Be sure to make a reservation early since they fill up very quickly. Walk-ins are possible, but you won't get the nice courtyard seat. The live band will come inside to play occasionally as well, but you won't get the full experience unless you're outside.
