Turning off the lights

I never expected to be saying these words, but after 15 years of marriage (plus five for dating), I’m getting a divorce. I don’t expect to come back here, but I’ll leave it up for now in case it’s useful

Witcher 3 for the PC: Default Key Bindings

I have trouble remembering all the things I can do and how, so I went looking for a list of commands and controls for the PC version of Witcher 3. The only one I found was woefully incomplete. So, here

EVE Online and… women (sorta)

I went longer than I meant to before writing another post. Shocker, I know. Anyway, I spotted a special installment of EVE Blog Banter that got the neurons firing, so I thought I’d participate (even though I never have before—no

“So the murlocs are after us for improper hazmat disposal?” This was, in fact, a quote from our D&D game yesterday. (3.5, in case anyone was wondering.) Of course they weren’t actual murlocs; those are from World of Warcraft. But

it’s a quest thing

Yay! I finally ordered an 8G memory card for my digital camera, so I won’t be limited to 17 (yes, 17) pictures using the camera’s original 32M card. Thankfully, memory cards are surprisingly non-expensive through Amazon these days. The trick
