Books 2016

It’s a bit late in the year for this, but it’s been busy. 2016 started off with me heavily reading comics, but that petered off as I took on more and more responsibility for the twins. It takes time to write articles of the quality I prefer to write for Comic POW!. It’s also the … Continue reading “Books 2016”

2014 Video Games Report and Game of the Year

This year I did not play as many new games as in previous years. I was deep in my graduate degree and most of my free time was during work travel. Since I don’t have a powerful laptop (and Steam on Linux was just taking off early on this year anyway), most of that time … Continue reading “2014 Video Games Report and Game of the Year”

Year of the Linux Desktop? For Real this time!

I still really love using Linux, but I don’t follow the Linux press like I used to. I’ve settled into a comfortable zone where I only follow Fedora and KDE news since that’s what I use.

2013 Video Games Report and Game of the Year

Things have gone a little slower recently because we’ve all been away for the holidays, but I actually … Continue reading “2013 Video Games Report and Game of the Year”

My Books of 2013

It’s definitely hard to read books when you have other obligations. This year I had two semesters of graduate school and the majority of the second year of Scarlett’s life. Now I know why my mother, who loved reading, would only make it through a couple books a year. Frankly I only got through this … Continue reading “My Books of 2013”

2012 Video Games Report and Game of the Year

First of all, a quick reminder that my Game of the Year doesn’t necessarily have to come out in 2012.  Because I don’t have the time to dedicate to video games, the price premium of buying it new rarely makes sense to me.  So my Game of the Year will be my favorite game that … Continue reading “2012 Video Games Report and Game of the Year”

Looking Back at Comic Books

Recently I was thinking about cataloguing my comic books.  Recent family events convinced me to get on with it and so I spent all weekend putting the information into the KDE collection database Tellico.  It had lots of useful fields to fill out, so I figured I was probably only going to do this once … Continue reading “Looking Back at Comic Books”
