Chapter 19 – Networking

I liked California. It was ungodly expensive and I wasn't able to afford living there with the car payment and a newborn. I liked working for a small town tech company that had rich community ties and dealing with customers face to face, day to day. It's a better environment when there is familiarity and...

Chapter 18 – Incompatible Software

If you have read any of this, you should know by now that I consider it a different place.  I'm different person.  Our trip out there after Brandon was born helped influence my opinion on that.  It was a memory, and I was ok with leaving that life in that past.  It didn't mean that...

I played through this a few years ago, but just did a play through for a second time. This time I payed more attention than I remember the first time through. It was a little more than the mindless button pushing of the combat system, with the occasional counter. It was listening to the interview... Continue Reading →

Sleeping Dogs

We haven't really done a review in a while. But Sleeping Dogs was enough for us to feel the obligation to give one to share the enjoyment we had playing it, and to do our part to help give the exposure we feel it deserves. Most people have heard of the Grand Theft Auto series.... Continue Reading →

Yesterday’s Memory

The last year has been relatively hard on the anxiety.  It started to occur to me that the anxiety started really appearing shortly after my last puff on a vape pen.  It wasn't long after that the company I worked for decided to relocate their support department to another city and I wasn't prepared or...
