We didn't have a ton of time, really. The weekend was way overloaded, so we only got to visit for a few hours Saturday and Sunday. It was fun, though -- we crammed as many new games in as we could in the time we had.

I’m having a blast in Oregon with Ryvvn and FCM, but all the pictures and tweets from PAX are a little bittersweet.

Just got in to Rotorua, NZ yesterday (after Auckland, Paihia, and Whitianga). Redwood forest, geysers & geothermal stuff here, as well as some white-water rafting and lots of ~adventure stuffs (which I typically won't do, but I might roll down a hill in a giant ball a time or two). Enjoying myself thoroughly, and seeing tons of incredible sights. After this, I head up to Matamata, better known as Hobbiton, where I hope to simply walk into Mordor (or maybe take a shuttle bus, either way).

One does not simply walk into Mordor. There's a shuttle bus from Taupo.

Tongariro Crossing - this one was a tough climb, and by the end, I was dragging quite a bit. We couldn't climb Mt. Doom itself (Ngauruhoe) - it's considered tapu, or sacred ground now (you used to be able to go to the summit), but I got pretty close to it. Really impressive, worth the few blisters that I'm sporting.

Nice. I'm glad to hear the adventures continue apace.

"Container ship flexing in rough weather" was on the front page of reddit. Hopefully you didn't witness any of this, DOM. Quite bendy!

I entered an online pet portrait contest, if anyone could take a sec and vote, I’d appreciate it!

It’s not one of those annoying ones that requires you to input your information. After you click the golden VOTE button, a form pops up, but you can just ignore it. The vote will already be counted.

You can vote once a day until March 4.

March Madness is aptly named. Greetings from the final four broadcast trailer in San Antonio Texas.

Did I mention the madness is real?

On the one hand, I'm a little jealous - just because you're in the middle of it all doing what (I highly suspect) you love, and orchestrating the whole madness to bend to your whim (or maybe having your whim bent around the madness a touch).

On the other hand, I'm getting ready to go hike up around the mountains, and while Easter weekend is a HUGE holiday weekend here, the trails should be pretty peaceful & serene, and I'm digging that quite a bit myself.

How'd it go?

Also, Zark, congrats on a a great year of MM.

I could use some vacations, having a 4 day weekend last week is not enough rest from all the... "eventualities" that have been going on at work this last month, starting with a epidemic of The Mumps™ that seems to be unstoppable

March Madness is over, the masters is in progress (but the province of another team) & I’m at the National Association of Broadcasters convention in Vegas through middle of next week.

Tonight, 3 of us are jumping off the top of the stratosphere casino tower (their first jump, my third). The others both work for my old company -

Lots of conversation from the old office - things that are going well, things that are stalled. Places I’m missed and things that load balanced without me balancing the load. I’m glad for the conversation.

Things are going well, except at the casino tables. I’ve lost more money in Canto Bight than I planned & need to budget the rest of the trip.

How are you guys?

Relatively mump-free, even though every week there are at least 2-3 more cases. I am vaccinated against the mumps, but if push comes to shove I might have to stop hanging out with my brother and my newborn nephew just to be safe.

Look. I think we are all good with werewolves, vampires, sociopaths, pirates, ninjas, people from the future and past, and zombies, but there's no place for baseball playing ghosts here. Just regular ghost sure, but once they start playing baseball they need to get the hell out.

I have a game idea, and a desire, but I lack time.

It's Firefly, but this time the good guys are the good guys. Not everyone can be special, but some will be.

If someone wants to run it, I'll give you the lowdown.

Think that I found the original Village. There were *not* a lot of Villagers (but there was a winery across the street).
