Mid-Season Fall Anime · 5:22am 6 days ago

It's not looking good, folks.

By this point, I'm down to just one of the four shows I set out to watch, picked up only one other, and have struck out on a couple of others. Let's take a quick look at what worked, and then what didn't.

Ascendance of a Bookworm


My loli librarian can't be this smug.

A Dream is done · 12:42am November 8th

With a vast plethora of emotion, I would like to announce that the single biggest undertaking of my life is complete: a story more than seven years in the writing.

TA Dream
A not so standard human-in-Equestria story including but not limited to: democracy, tequila, and robots.

Is it perfect? Lol, no.
Is it my masterpiece? Maybe!
Is it my final story? Hardly.

Thanks for the ride. It was good for me, too.

US Legal Titles for Military and Police · 10:57pm July 11th

Too many laws to discuss, so here I'll focus on just a handful because they're the most relevant for my writing.

Physical Security of Canterlot Castle · 2:11am April 27th

If you haven't seen the episode that premiered April 20, Sparkle's Seven, I highly recommend it. It's the 200th episode and they did a special job. I'll wait. Alternately, you can watch the abridged version.

If you have seen it, or don't mind spoilers, read on.

New laptop search · 11:38pm April 25th

I'm looking to upgrade my main computer that I got in 2013.

14 inch, 1366x768 screen
Core i-5 3230M (4 core, 2.6ghz)
8gb RAM (DDR3?)
GeForce 660M (2gb)
750gb HDD

It's been a good computer. After five years, though, it might be due for an upgrade. As with the old one, I'll travel a decent amount and otherwise have it plugged into a 24" monitor, keyboard, and mouse at home. I game some, but don't put it under too many other heavy loads.

A Dream Season 8 wrapup · 8:03am Dec 16th, 2018

late sorry sorry sorry

Okay, it was a season. Definitely a season. Can one describe such a season with words like "good" or "bad?"

I suppose that can be judged by what we accomplished. Let's take a look at the longest-running gags:

Scuba Diving · 12:50pm Apr 25th, 2018

The deeper you go, the harder it gets.

You're supposed to be certified in order to scuba dive, but rather than covering the dizzying array of organizations and qualifications you can get, I'll mostly focus this blog on the how of diving.
