Happy New Year to all our readers! My New Year’s Resolution: Blog more again! Thanks to the RSI, my gaming time is limited, but I am busy with boring RL stuff, too. Still, writing about games is something I enjoy doing and I would like to do that more often. There is one post I plan to publish soon and then I got one more vertical PC mouse that I want to write about and I just ordered another one for my right hand to try – if that one works as I hope it will, my left hand will be able to relax more as I’m still using it to move to places where my right hand can click on. I am also the very proud owner of a Steam controller which opened up lots of gaming possibilities again! Just a glimpse into my RL stuff: I am wrapping up my current job. I quit and will – if I get to take all my vacation days that I haven’t taken yet – get out there after the first week of February. This sounds bad… “get out there”. I will miss that job, even … [Read more...] about Happy New Year 2018!

This weekend was a bit of a crazy one, but also extremely fun. So for those who know my wife is a Teacher, and has been at the State Capitol building every single day this past week protesting. Originally the legislature was supposed to be out on Friday so I decided to take that day off myself so we could go do something to relax from the madness. Unfortunately the situation at the state house is a very fluid one and they opted to have a very short session on Friday morning. This left my wife in a bit of a dilemma wanting to go and be there for all of her coworkers… and also not wanting to cancel our weekend. In the end we compromised because Oklahoma City can in fact be on the way to Dallas if you go the Highway 35 route. So around 1 pm… much later than I had intended on doing so… I found my way through the nonsense that is 30,000+ educators inhabiting the Capitol grounds and picked my rain soaked wife up and … [Read more...] about Half Priced Books Sale
