Godspeed SA on its temporary home, a Saber68. The board it's destined for has been delayed endlessly. Great set, though.

Bears vs. Babies is amusing. This monster was subsequently killed by a baby army.

Just Geralt of Rivia, looking sick of everyone's shit.

But really, even after a few years, The Witcher 3 looks amazing.

TL;DR - Sadness, go hug your dog.

If you've ever read any of my phone reviews, you've probably seen my dog Darwin in the photo samples. He's very photogenic. Unfortunately, his health has been declining and we had to put him to sleep today.

Darwin has been by my side (literally) the entire time I've been working as a full time writer. The transition was scary and stressful, but Darwin was there. Every morning, I'd trudge upstairs and start working, and Darwin would follow me up and hang out all day. We went on walks after lunch, took naps, and played with squeaky toys (that was mostly him). When he lost his sight a few years ago, I carried him upstairs every morning and we still went on walks, took naps, and played with squeaky toys.

So, I'm sitting here in my office. I have all the things I need to get work done—computers, phones, and more keyboards than any sane person should own. But I don't have my friend. I miss him.

If you have a dog, please go hug them. Take them for a walk. Play with squeaky toys. Humans have shaped dogs over millennia to be our companions. They love us unconditionally, and that's not something you see a lot of in life. I lost my friend, but you still have yours. This is just a reminder to make the most of it. Remind your dog-loving friends to do the same.

Bad news. I'm not really any better at Altered Beast than I was almost 30 years ago.

FYI, the first six seasons of Futurama are leaving Netflix next month. Watch 'em while you can.

The Googler doing this smart home talk said Assistant understands the word "hella." He did not lie. #io17

US House passed the AHCA. If this becomes law, the GOP will kill more Americans than terrorism ever has. But hey, rich people need tax cuts, right?
