Review. Things that will be.

There’s a new review of Desert Bridge that made me very happy: On first impression, the whole game feels playful and offbeat. All of the graphics are sketched in crayon with a passion for colour and oddity rivaling that of a six year old. All the characters and spaces are …

That Bug Again

Not a whole lot of people are still reading this, but if you’re one of the people who couldn’t run Desert Bridge because of that strange bug with the resizing – another patch is in the works. Hopefully it will work.

damn

Something went wrong with the update… trying to get the site back to normal. Edit: Looks like K2, the theme I normally use for this website, isn’t compatible with WordPress 2.7.1. Either that, or I’m doing something wrong – but I seriously cannot imagine what. It’s not like I played …

The Incredible Arghness

Recently another abyss of human behaviour has opened up in front of us, and it’s not pleasant to look at. I have only vaguely hinted at some problems we had about a year ago with certain people (which included the joyous event of someone putting a rootkit on my old …

Froghead Is Real.

This is the Official Froghead Video. Those of you who have played The Strange and Somewhat Sinister Tale of the House at Desert Bridge already know the song, of course, but this deserves to be the most famous video on the internet, ever. Seriously. Lyrics: My name is Froghead and …

There’s a reason I generally stay away from message boards and comment threads. I recently began participating in one about the events in Israel, and it’s reminded me that this kind of thing is bad for my blood pressure. You can’t argue with a fanatic. To the fanatic, Israel has …

Israel threatens ground invasion of Gaza Saturday’s “Operation Cast Lead” was a brutal instance of collective punishment of Gaza’s 1.5 million inhabitants. It involved 64 aircraft dropping more than 100 tons of explosives, the largest Israeli operation against Gaza since 1967. The death toll includes women and children. The fatalities …

The Mysterious Update of Your Uncle Robert, the Arachnid

And now for some fascinating update-type things: For those of you who have been having problems running Desert Bridge, there now is an alternative version of the executable. I am not guaranteeing that it will work – in fact, I have no idea. But it might, and it certainly won’t …

Post-Christmas Post

Yes. I don’t have much to say right now. Christmas was fun – managed to surprise Verena with some nice presents, including two signed/personalized copies of Peter S. Beagle books. Also got some cool stuff, the best of which was a collection of Eddie Izzard DVDs. Izzard is my all-time …

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to everyone! …and some very, very special greetings to the Greek government, the slave-drivers of capitalism. In this festive season, I hope you rot in hell. The rest of us – take care, be merry, and eat well. (And this remains the most hilarious Christmas song of all …
