Holiday fun!

Ok, we just got back from my brother and sister-in-law's place NC. The kids all had a great time and I think all the adults did too. I am thinking of it as a dry run for the road trip to in two weeks.

Right now I am getting ready to scrub the kitchen and bathrooms in the house. What joys! Today the wet-rooms... tomorrow THE WORLD! Or at least the yard.
I have to say "getting ready" because I am waiting for the allergy medicine to kick in. There is nothing worse than scrubbing under the fridge with a runny nose. As it is, the Zerg-Creep that is under the fridge is pretty scary.

So I am getting really excited about the new job. The opportunity is awesome and I think it will be a tonne of fun.

Workin in a coal mine...

Starting to clean and pack the house. We have a couple of weeks, but really only about 4-5 full days as I am still going into the office and Kier has the minions to deal with.
Hoping to get a lot done prior to the 2nd. I want the "pre move inspection" (where they come to see how much crap we have) to go pretty easy. Right now we are already anxious to get out of the ghetto and into our new home.

My Austin Project

So a lot of people have pestered me about my upcoming project. I finally broke down and will tell you. I am going to work as a consultant for the Catholic Church. I will be helping build a new MMORPG. The Tentative title is "Rise of the Apostles".
I actually have some concept art that I will try and get up soon.

Recent Games

So, I have not been playing a lotof games lately, but one I HAVE been playing a lot of is travian. It is kind of an old school web based Civ game. It is free, but you can pay for some of the features.

Check it out, and if you decide to play, use Server 10 on the .com domain (http://s10.travian.com) It is the youngest server so you wont get killed right away.

I am also playing Evony on server 94. Look me up under the name "SirRhosis"

Maybe more later.

Muisc or Misery?

What came first, the music or the misery? People worry about kids playing with guns or watching violent videos afraid that some sort of culture of violence will take them over. Nobody worries about kids listening to thousands, literally thousands, of songs about heartbreak, rejection, pain, misery, and loss. Did I listen to pop music because I was miserable? Or was I miserable because I listened to pop music?

Austin Bound

So I accepted the offer to transfer within my company to a new studio. The new studio is in Austin ad I will be moving my family there within the next few weeks.

We are very excited but personally I am very scared. This is huge and I am worried about how difficult it will be and how I will overcome those difficulties.

I do not have any concrete dates yet, but tentatively I will be starting in the new studio on December 14th. I am very excited about the new project... it will be even cooler than the last.

For those of you who are curious, if I display where I work or what projects I have worked on I have to do a lot of disclosure crap with my company. As I don't want to deal with all that you will have to suffer the mystery. Most everyone knows whereI work anyway, so it is not a huge deal.

I will try to get this set up for easier posting, but no guarantees.

Try Try again

Ok, so I am going to try this again. I have had several complaints/requests about the blog (or lack therof).

For my new readers, please remember that I am a great speller and a terrible typist.

This post will be short as Iam still trying to get everything set up.
