Hello, Saturday! It… was quite a week, I have to say. Very busy. With all the goings-on for GAMA, I almost forgot that PAX East was going on. Hope everyone is having a good time out there. I’m, obviously, not there. I will be at Adepticon in a couple weeks, though. That’ll be fun. L...

Well, my previous plans for the day sort of fell through. No worries, though. The day will not be ruined. I might just see if my N64, that I brought back from my parent’s place last time I visited, still works or not. If so, hello Ocarina of Time! But in the meantime, let’s get […]...

As we move into the heat/cold of the next couple months (depending on your hemisphere), it’s good to have a book to either snuggle up with and read next to the fire, or to look over while escaping from the oppressive temperatures outside. Osprey Publishing is helping out with that, having a sal...
