Yes, I finally did it. After years of threatening to buy this domain I finally did. And moved my blog there. And...yeah. Here we are now!

Now, to link my Twitter and Flickr and Yahoo! accounts together to form a single behemoth of technological might! Mwaahaahaaaa~!

WIGI Los Angeles Community Mixer!

We drove down to Los Angeles for the Women in Games International (WIGI) Community Mixer on Thursday. We attended the event -- it was lots of fun -- and then drove home.

Yeah, I drove to L.A. and back in one day. 730 miles round trip. Wewt.

Actually, I've forgotten how much I enjoy driving. The highlight of the evening was driving on Highway 152 at 2:30am listening to Bass Invaderz and Dungeonmaster's Guide.

Ever read "Getting Things Done"?

I was given this book Getting Things Done. It has some good concepts but somehow bothers me in a way that I cannot explain.

A friend sent this link today. Priceless.

All of the stress of the last week and a half caught up to me the minute I left work Friday night. Got home and found I had a sore throat and fever, and have been feeling terrible ever since. Guess I need some rest!

Twitter needs help

Twitter is a good idea, but appears to be poorly executed. The UI has weird glitches, the settings don't seem to stick for me (and I'm using Firefox on Windows XP, hardly a rare combination!), and I can't simply search for friends if I already know their names.

I wish the Twitter folks all the best, and I will keep using it...but not to manage or even communicate one-way with my social circle.

I am taking the big step of posting on Twitter.

To most people, Web 2.0 simply means they can share info with the world or some portion of it (friends, colleagues, etc.). To me it means a big risk in sharing with people I don't know. I've never been shy per se, at least, I get nervous when talking in front of a crowd but that usually fades about 2 minutes in to the talk/discussion/presentation/whatever.

But the Internet is forever, in a way. This is different.

No school. More work.

Yeah, so I talked to my mentor at work and he said that a graduate degree is useless compared to doing actual work. So, yeah. No school for me.

Now, what will I spend that $15,000 on -- oh yeah! I didn't have it in the first place. Wheeeee~!
