Here are various miscellany, which I have gathered together in an attempt to pass them off as a “post”…
- I want to say sorry to the Comic Irregulars, the people behind Darths & Droids. I kind of short changed them the other day when I made it sound like David Morgan-Mar did the comic alone. It’s a team effort. You guys are great. Keep up the good work.
- Augury has a great series of posts on the weapons in the Unreal Tournament 3 Demo. I posted on this a while ago, but his series is a lot more in-depth. I actually learned a few details about the performance of the various weapons that I found surprising. (Example: I didn’t realize the BioRifle has the same damage output as the Enforcer in primary fire mode. I just assumed that it was a lot higher because… I dunno… the gun is bigger?) Very educational.
- The lack of posts here on the site? Oh, you noticed? No, I’m not taking part in the Writer’s Strike. Yes, My usual goal is two posts a day. Typically, I like to have a quick post at 8 am (written early that morning) and an essay at noon. (Usually written during the previous weekend.) I’ve managed two posts so far this week, and that’s if you include the half-assed thing you’re reading right now. Part of this is due to the fact that I goofed off all weekend, which stopped me from writing essays. The other reason is that I’ve begun an exercise regimen in the mornings, which stopped me from writing the quick posts. Thus the drought.
- I actually have a post for later today. I know, I know: What a hero. Really, you’re too kind.
