Well, seems some emails went off into Internet never-never land and Krinny.com was off the DNS charts for a while...but have no fear! All has been sorted out!
So, where to begin...the wedding was quite lovely, despite Ivan's attempt to ruin it with torrentional downpour. Is it just me or has this been a psychotic hurricane season? Seems like another one hits Florida every week...and they invariably come up here and dump loads of rain. I prefer rainy days to sunny (more to watch), but this is a bit ridiculous.
Work is still...work. I have a fairly laid back job, more than most people considering what I make and my level of education (or more correctly, lack thereof). It pays the bills, leaves me money to play with and save, so it's not ALL bad, but it's very much the psycho level of activity or the long stretches of bouncing the rubber ball off the wall to pass time (these usually occur waiting for vendor responses before moving forward on a project or, more rarely, from when I have to monitor things more than DO things). There are worse things I suppose...
Starting up a new hobby of rifle shooting, since I spend a ridiculous amount of money on my other hobby (Warhammer) and really can't justify buying anything else for that one, might as well branch out into an almost as expensive hobby. Our DBA/Sysadmin has taken me out to the local gun club a few times and I much prefer shooting rifles to shooting pistols. Just something more satisfying about the crack of a rifle...or the absolute roar of a carbine. Mmmmm....yummy.
Other than that...not much else is new outside of video games, which has encompassed my last week of leisure time as not one, not two, but THREE titles that I wanted were released in quick succession. Kind of cool, yet kind of sucky at the same time. They're all really good (more on that later), but there's only so many hours in the day. I'm also on a (hopefully) brief hiatus from PlanetSide due to the new hobby (start-up costs on a new hobby are astronomical...) and these new games. Still a fun game, but if I'm busy doing these OTHER things, then it's somewhat silly to pay for a game that I'm not playing. Plus it was an experiment in how good Sony Online Entertainment's Customer Service is (results? Very poor).
Forgeworld is producing some kick-ass stuff that I really want...pity I can't justify spending thousands of dollars on single models...no matter how big they may be. Could do it, mind you, but I wouldn't feel right...need to win the lottery or something so I can indulge in such frivolities.
Since it's been a while, I think I'll get back into the swing of things with a review of my three new games, but since it's boring, geeky stuff...it'll be shoved behind a cut.

TWO MONTHS without an update? What the hell was I smoking?
Basically, between moving, work and that "sleep" thing, I barely had time to think...let alone post. Fortunately, not having time to think is a good thing for me, because I suck at it anyway.
Moving on, the 19th is my birthday...make sure your presents arrive shortly thereafter!
More news to follow, but I'm on the road in DC, ok...technically stopped at my brother's...en route to NJ. Weee...
