Miscellany

  • Back from Carnage. Great con. Played in:

    • The Unexplained. Lots of fun. Bought it.
    • Heavy Gear Blitz. Decent, but likely won’t pick up yet another minis game. I’m not going to say it’s better or worse than Battletech – just different. Battletech is shoot, shoot, shoot, now you’re in arm’s reach, and you beat the crap out of each other. Heavy Gear is more shooting and less melee.
    • Battlestar Galactica Board Game Great game. Very dynamic.
  • Been sick with the seasonal flu. Got better. Mostly. Have this nagging cough which is bothering me. But, feeling a little better each day.

  • A guy emailed me asking about his website. WTF? Well, apparently there is another Matt Caron, who owns 8bitorange.net, and this guy was looking for web design. Of course, I go look at the site, and I’m like “gack! You need a website redesign, so instead of just doing it, you put up a witty placeholder?” So unprofessional. I didn’t even do that when I redesigned this site, and it’s just a hobby/personal site, not something for a business. But, this ia one of the problems with the state of the industry today. Surprising that anything works.

  • A friend sent me this very amusing video clip.
