Pros and Cons

Well, as you can see, I’ve taken quite a few artistic liberties with the look of the site. Just looking at the front page lately has made me feel an uncomfortable itch in the base of my brain. That and it was slightly depressing what with all the darkness and “oh, I’m soo deep and moody.”

Anyway, I went to my first con ever this last weekend where I was able to meet up with the venerable Pats, both Rothfuss and Johnson. I’d like to take a brief moment to explain the comedy of this situation. I am a nerd. Now I’m a self-proclaimed nerd. My wife is smiling at that. I’ve geeked out at Kevin J. Anderson, David Brin, and Anne McCaffrey. I love Star Wars, Star Trek, magic, unicorns, and theoretical physics, and I’ve never been to a con.

My parents have been to a con, and I haven’t.

Some of you out there who go to cons eight times a year might say “Norwescon? Meh.” But it was my first, so it will forever hold a special place in my heart. It was at Norwescon that I discovered facts of life such as “There is such a thing as too much cleavage” and “Clothing can be optional.” The best part was that I found myself in an environment where there was no shame. No, perhaps shame is not the right word. There was no judgement. Folks who had no right wearing fishnet were clad head-to-toe in it, and outrageous costumes were worn with reckless abandon.

For me it was the most comfortable place in the entire world for two days.

Lastly, it is with remorse that I announce the death of my hard drive. He fought valiantly against his own demise, but in the end he succumbed to the pressures of my demands and his heads ground to a halt – doubtless forever scarring the surface of the drive and destroying all of my precious hard work. His contents will be missed, though his lack of enthusiasm will not.

So, I’ll be doing all of my updating on lunch breaks until the situation can be rectified.

If anyone knows how to install XP on a machine with no operating system, shoot me an e-mail.

Groove on.
