Many of you out there will be traveling via planes, trains, and automobiles towards Indianapolis over the next couple days (or you’re on your way now). Well, for those long hours as the Earth moves beneath you at a rapid rate of speed, you’ll need something to make that time go by. I migh...

Yesterday seemed to go by quick. Being busy will do that. And there’s very little time of year that I’m busier than the weeks leading up to Gen Con. So, while everything I’m doing is revolving around gaming right now (even moreso than usual), there’s still some room for more, ...

Man, what a week. Monday worked from home. Tuesday I had off. Fireworks were going off until 1am and so I’m sleeeepy! But, it’s already Wednesday, so we’re making our way quickly through the week. But, since we didn’t have a chance yesterday to post it, we’re bringing yo...

I don’t know what it is about Tuesday that I like. Maybe it’s just that it’s “not Monday.” But it feels like the week’s good and underway. Like, “that mess yesterday’s over with. Bring on the rest of the week!” Maybe that’s just me, but I li...

Well, we’re back. I’m guessing many of you noticed the lack of posts yesterday and earlier this morning. We were having some technical difficulties with the site. It was a peculiar little bug that was proving difficult to stomp. But stomped it was and so we can continue on. Man, yesterday...

While it’s good to be back in the office and once more in my regular routine, after last week’s ordeal with my apartment, I’m still looking forward to the weekend. For those of us here in the US, it’s even (potentially) a long weekend, what with Monday being Memorial Day. So I...

I don’t know about you, but my Monday went by in a flash. It seemed I’d just clocked in when it was already almost time to go. But having a very busy day will do that. And that means this whole week is going to rush by, since I’m certainly busy. And while I work […]...

Well, for me, it’s sort of a shortened week, since it’s my first day back in the office. But I know not all of you had that same privilege, so you are looking to speed up the work week as much as possible. I know gaming podcasts help me out. Hopefully they’ll help you out, […...

Ah, Saturday. And it’s Games Day at the Milton Library. So, of course, that means it’s raining. Funny how that seems to be happening. 3rd weekend of the month, we’ve got some rain. But, seeing as I like rain, it’s all good. Rain and gaming. Seems great. Anyway, we’ve got...

Tuesday already? I guess that’s what happens when you have Monday off. It was an odd day, being a mix of a regular workday (doing TGN stuff much of the morning), going grocery shopping midday (something I usually do on Saturday), and then doing some laundry and cleaning in the evening (which I ...
