NorCal visit; feather in the cap
some sweet Settlers pieces, Jon
coached his football team to glory, there were turkeys
's backyard, I got to see Shane and Brent was recalled to Sacramento.
Fantasy football; black eye
Medieval Gridiron: 2-2
Supermassive Black Hole: 1-3
League of Extraordinary Gentleman: 3-1
Two losses can be chalked up to Vick getting injured. DeAngelo is not doing well. But has been a very strange season so far, hopefully I can dig myself out of some of these holes.
NBC snf 'night vision'; black eye
DE filter repair; black eye
The backwash valve
was leaking out of the handle at the very bottom. When the very corroded handle did not easily come off the diverter shaft, I opened the filter
to make sure I wasn't missing anything. I guess it was a good opportunity to wash down the filter vanes.
I eventually removed the handle and found that an oring was missing. The nearest available part was sixty miles away.

Still going strong after a couple of weeks, and I didn't even do much surface prep.
My neighborhood finally has a large man on a gixer; feather in the cap
Qc party; feather in the cap
Well I had soccer that night so I barely got to see any lasers and had to take it easy on the samosas. But I managed to get out without hearing any DMB (minus the 'B'). Cell phone photo
Halo Reach; feather in the cap
Did a Heroic coop playthrough with Ty
. I'm glad they kept the set piece element of ODST
and accompanying Forge mode. The space combat mission was unexpected but they kinda pulled it off. Jet packs introduce new tactics and skill. I'm sort of shocked the game didn't end with the requisite Warthog/Puma getaway, but it wouldn't have had quite the same effect.

Fun, challenging, but I've failed miserably against Rob

The changes all work for me. The game lacks polish in a few places, but nothing that diminishes gameplay.
The new Sword album; feather in the cap
- One unit per hex effectively eliminates unit profileration and adds tactics to combat.
- Self-defending cities.
- City-states. Totally fun, though they don't really disappear in the modern age as has been the case in history. In fact, one angry city-state captured my opponent's capital resulting in a domination victory for my side. Of course their primary role is for trade, gifts, and as an easy target.
- More wonders.
- The policy tree is a great way to customize and specialize. Most importantly, it rewards smaller empires to keep each match balanced.
- Uh, Giant Death Robots.
A very solid production in a bit of a different direction from their past two records. The album art is cool, reminds me of this

It was toasty and there were too many cagers, but fun roads nonetheless. And pie.
