Today, Dork Tower reran an old classic strip, which reminded me to check hoodyhoo.com for new KoDT and DT(Retro) cartoons. I found this, which is very good.

I think we finally have a group. This is very good.

I hurt like I can't even think of a word to describe. It probably has to do with the 3ish hours of sleep and the 12+ hours at work. On the clock for over 9.5. With the new raise and a couple hours overtime, next paycheck oughtta be sweet.

Stupid comments, Wii vs PS3 edition

Found in this com.com (CNET News) article: "There are quite a few people out there today who have no idea what Blu-ray is," he said. "But a year after its launch, at around this time next year, more people will start recognizing the added value brought by a Blu-ray player, just as a DVD player function helped the PS2 to a flying start."

Re-he-heally? 'Cause it seems to me that the DVD functionality was valuable and "helped the PS2 get off to a flying start" because we already knew what DVDs were, and even owned some, by the time PS2 was released five years ago. Would the DVD functionality really have done as much for the console ten years ago, when DVDs were relatively novel on the market? (no, seriously--you could still expect to be able to rent every title at Blockbuster on VHS ten years ago, and many of us--OK, our slightly-older and less tech-savvy cousins--were still balking at buying players that would require replacing their whole tape collections, still smarting from having done it with their music--or still clinging desperately to their audiocassettes)

This will be all today. Hug a servicemember. If you know a servicemember serving over there, hug one of his/her family members.

Bought a DS Lite. Can anyone tell me how the fuck to get the canister across the gap in the first (Blockade Runner) level? Please??

I've been working like mad and trying to squeeze in family time, so sorry I'm behind on the blogging.

In the meantime, enjoy. Happy October!

It snowed once already in the Tanana Valley. It's melted now, but soon enough it'll be here to stay. I've gotten the car winterized, but I'm worried--it had trouble starting when it was 30F outside. WTF is that about? I think it's in shock. The car came from Florida.
