The Bone of Justice

A few Sundays ago something amazing happened. Something like no other. It was during the hours of 2nd Shift in the darkened corner we call home, when a new phrase was coined, or at least a phrase was revisited as if it were new. The Bone of Justice came to …

New all time high score for me!

That’s right. It either beat or came very close to my all-time high score in Ms. Pac-Man. Since I can’t remember my old record, I going to assume I broke it. It was not a perfect game but it lasted a good while and I ended up with a final …

Where did half the shouts go?

I had been suspecting something was up for some time, but it appears as though most of the latest comments on the shoutbox were not from legitimate sources. It was basically an automated bot shooting out canned repsonses by directly sending post variables right to my index page. This has …

Another Father’s Day

Well, another Father’s Day came and went. I hadn’t thought about it but if you include our step-dads, Corey and I have 4 fathers! Of course, they were all worth it. We didn’t splurge too much in this case but I hope they enjoyed what we did get. Mostly gift …
