Moved back up to a three bedroom house a few months ago. Still renting, unfortunately, but I still don't plan on staying in this city for the long haul, so probably for the best. Still teaching sword fighting, and in fact have quite the successful class going. Also got karate back on my schedule, but the RHPS cast is done for now (our last show was Halloween a year ago). Just had my 8th anniversary dating Sa_briel. Work is good, I became the COO near the beginning of this year, and business has been good. That's pretty much it. I thought I'd check-in on my old digs and old friends, and figured I'd drop on update on here while I was at it.

I check my Causticus account once every, oh, never or so... however, it came up in conversation so I thought I'd poke in. Maybe I'll start using it again. Maybe.

Late notice, but I'm hosting a casual LAN and Geekfest party this Saturday, starting around 2pm, going until we can't go any longer (last time, that meant 4 or 5am)!

I'm thinking a little more casual this time, but still generally the more folks the better, so if you are a PC gamer, you are within two hours of Redding, and you are fun-positive, come on over. Being a little more casual, I think it would be fun to also take a break or two to rest the eyes and twitchy fingers, so bring your Magic cards and/or prepare for some Munchkin or something.

Details, details...Collapse )

Please RSVP either here or via direct email so I may tally attendance. If you have friends that would be interested, check with me and get them to come, too!

(p.s. yes, I know, it's another announcement post ~shrug~)

It's been a while since I blogged more than a gadget purchuse or LAN party notice. Life has been more or less stable, so I haven't felt compelled to write much. Basically, I've just passed my 9 year anniversary at work, and just had our MFO six year anniversary Rocky Horror Picture Show, and likewise coming up on a 6 year anniverasary with dating Sa_briel, plus opening our relationship toward my polyamorous ideals has been slowly progressing, a rocky sometimes painful sometimes exciting adventure. Laney is a new star in my constellation, for which I am quite happy. I am also still teaching sword fighting weekly (think Gladiator and Braveheart) as well as training in Myo Sim kendo weekly, though my Shotokan karate has fallen to the wayside of late. October will entail four days of steel sword fighting in the SF bay area and culminate in three Halloween RHPS shows (one of Friday and two on Saturday at the end of the month).

That's pretty much your overview of where I'm at. Cheerio. :)

I just ordered my own personal weather station (PWS)! It's the Ambient Weather WS-1080 Wireless Home Weather Station (w/ Data Logging). I'll have to build a low power logging system to connect it to and become another weather provider for Wunderground. :)

The next big LAN PARTY will be on Saturday, June 5th, starting around 2pm, going until we can't go any longer (last time, that meant 4 or 5am)!

I'd really like to have at least 8 gaming computers at this party, the more the better (10+ would be great)! So if you are a PC gamer, you are within two hours of Redding, and you are fun-positive (i.e. no excessive verbally abusive and/or annoying posturing - I want everyone excited, fun and happy, not all put-down - thanks), I want YOU at my LAN party!

Following are details to make sure you're prepared BEFORE you arrive, so we don't spend 2 - 3+ hours setting up, configuring, installing, patching, etc.

Details, details...Collapse )

Please RSVP either here or via direct email so I may tally attendance. If you have friends that meet the above mentioned civility requirements, get them to come, too!

(p.s. witness my mad copy/paste skillz :D)

I decided to wait on the laptop and upgrade my desktop instead. Here's what I ended up with. :)
AMD Quad 3.4GHz CPU and compatible mainboard, 4GB RAM, NVidia GTS250 1GB video and Windows 7 (details...)Collapse )

I am seriously considering an HP TouchSmart tx2z tablet notebook PC.

SpecsCollapse )

If I were to get it, there's a good chance I'd do an after-market upgrade to a solid-state drive. I'd be uninstalling Works, too, of course.

Thoughts? Feedback?
