Autism Is Not The New Cool

Pardon, y’all. It’s been a while since I’ve been here <peers at the dust>. I’ve had the best of intentions, but sadly, my bogging client of choice (Windows Live Writer) doesn’t auto-translate those into actual written blog posts yet. Maybe in the next version. <sigh> I can hear some of you (both of you still […]

Support Our Scout

Edit 11/11/09 to remove the embedded video and replace it with a link. It was messing up the layout and I need to do more research to figure out how to embed videos inline. I love living in the future. First, though, watch this video that Alaric and I made. I was a Boy Scout […]

Well, that’s no good

Chatting with my sister just now and I realized that a lot of my problem with this current chapter is that it deals with the people side of the process. And as you all know, I’m such a dynamite people person, so clearly this is my strength. Not. I also realized that somewhere along the […]

$ shutdown -h now

So far, this has been an eventful, confusing, and difficult year. It hasn’t been all bad, of course, and when it has been good it has usually been pretty good — but there’s been a lot of crap to cope with. On top of the big issues, today I just dealt with one of the […]

If it’s a meltdown, it must be Monday

It’s a Monday. With a vengeance. Work has been better, the car needs $1K+ in repairs soonish, some personal projects have been hit with unfortunate and untimely delays that I really didn’t need right now, oh no, and I’m stressed beyond all belief. I really just want to stop coping and have a full-scale meltdown. […]

Jam session, perfection, and suckitude

I was asked by our priest if I could provide some quiet background guitar music for my church’s Maundy Thursday service. I agreed, and when time came to head down to the church tonight, I decided to walk. It’s only ten minutes away by foot and I can always use the exercise. My fingers are […]

Peeking into the Asperger’s Syndrome mind

I am reliably informed that people without Asperger’s Syndrome or some other form of autism will have trouble grokking the inherent rightness of the following statements: Without considering any of the other criteria such as sound quality, archive durability, or storage capabilities, CDs are inherently superior to cassettes because they are random access rather than […]

Brainlet: Artist Matchup!

[Editor's note: this Artist Matchup is inspired by a bit of a phone conversation between Steph, our friend Andrew, and me.] Announcer: Tonight, on Artist Matchup: Escher vs. Picasso! Announcer: In this corner, the mathematically brilliant and recursive M. C. Esher! Announcer: And in this…corner…noted cubist, Pablo Picasso! Escher: Hey, Picasso, pull yourself together! Picasso: […]

…and now I know. Right. Thanks.

Thanks to Ken Burnside of Ad Astra Games and the magic of the Pyramid chat, I now know this special bit of ferret lore: AdAstraGames says, “In general the number of excess ferrets in the household goes up at the square of the number of actual ferrets in the house.  Thus, one ferret is one too […]

Brainlet: Random X Table

  Introducing a new category of my blog: Brainlets. After all, my brain is scary, and I need to share that with you. Besides, Steph has been threatening to hurt me if I don’t start keeping a blog of all the random weird shit I come up with and use to make her laugh. So, […]
