Read For Yourself -- Frightening!posted by John Blanco @ 7:41 PM
Just like the Foosball table makes our downstairs rooms a "game room," now that we've moved our treadmill in to the laundry room, it's now a "home gym." :-)
Yes, that is what our President ended last night's press conference with...Thank You for your answers...

Chess Avatara is very close to development now. The edumucation from "the Java book" I got is going nicely...what a great little (little?) book!

Yesterday, the whole family went out to Red Lobster for dinner to celebrate Chris's birthday, Eadie's birthday, and our own Anniversary!
Yeee haw...been a long time since I treated myself to some CD's. I got the new Garbage CD, Bleed Like Me, and went back in time to get Korn's Issues.
The Nets are IN! Here comes Vince Carter, baby!
A lot of tidbits queueing up, so I have to unload on how things are going for me right now.
U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay said in 1995,
"The time has come that the American people know exactly what their representatives are doing here in Washington. Are they feeding at the public trough, taking lobbyist-paid vacations, getting wined and dined by special-interest groups? Or are they working hard to represent their constituents? The people, the American people, have a right to know. I say the best disinfectant is full disclosure.''
The people, the American people, are waiting, Mr. DeLay.
Greetings, basketball fans! Today's the day! Your New Jersey Nets go into the last game of the year, trying to win a playoff spot! A win by Jersey, or a loss by the Cavs, and we're in!
Happy Anniversary to us! :-) Yesterday, April 18th, was our one year anniversary. Holy Cow that was fast! We spent the weekend in Estes Park at Barbara's Bed and Breakfast, pictured above. Never been to one, but it was quaint and beautiful.
One year ago today, we were on a plane bound for Kauai. Dang. :-)
5 in a row. Heilman pitches a 1-hit CGS to beat Josh Beckett. Yeah, ba-by! Pedro today. :-)
Within the hour, *the* Jackie Henke will be showing up at our house so that we can be off to dinner! :-) We're headed to Claim Jumper, in Highlands Ranch, to celebrate Jackie's birthday on Sunday and the me and the Yog's 1st Anniversary!
Got the reply...they refunded my money. No reason. It was either out of stock, or they did it in response to me demanding a refund if they hadn't sent it yet. Obviously, they haven't. Over a week to tell me it's out of stock!!!
I bought a book from TotalCampus.com (why is this book causing me such consternation??), and a week later, it still hasn't been *sent*. Not delivered...sent! I'm trying to get my second refund in as many orders on this.
Holy Moly! The Mets, after an 0-5 start, have now won 3 in a row. Good character, boys! :-)
Ooooh! Above is my first 3D art, like...ever! :-) A couple rigorous days of Blender tutorials, and I was able to construct a 3D chessboard. Nifty! It was blood, sweat and tears though, since my expertise at Blender is still at about 2% (heh), I had to make each individual square almost completely manually. But I did learn a good deal about duplication and relocation to do it. I snagged the marble textures off Google.
I hope to one day be able to make this image in about 4 minutes. It seems to be a step above trivial.
Still, very proud. :-)
PS - I can't wait until I learn how to specify the absolute rotation of an object.
Michele and I are completely snowed in at our house. Not to say that's bad, we're just haning out, gonna watch some movies, and snuggle (perect day). The snow is amazing outside, blizzard-like conditions...
This is weird. OK...so the Yog and I entertained Jessica and Jason tonight as we went to Lil' Ricci's for a yummy pizza night. We planned on either some bowling for D&B's afterwards, but while we were finishing up dinner, two hostesses from Lil' Ricci's came up to us and asked if we'd like free tickets for the Nuggest tonight. :-)
...my eyes hurt.
Welp, the Dreamcast is sold and shipped. I bought the Java book I needed (only one hint per blog), but then got a Refund notice today. Doh! Out of stock! Curse you Amazon Marketplace! So, bought another one on eBay...from a local place, so hopefully I'll get it soon.
So, I decided to sell my Dreamcast, and all of my games, on eBay. Dreamcast is an older console system...not ancient...but Sega's last hardware release before folding into software-only. It's still a competitive system, and it competed with the PS2 and GameCube, but it's about to get blown away by the new crop of hardware and I don't play it anymore, and it's just taking up space, and...well... :-)

With the Web site at a solid base, and much time spent thinking about game design and such, I now move on to the second phase of the Avatara project.
Well, Baseball Opening Day is upon us: Red Sox versus Yankees. How cliche. :-)
