And todays Fechr is…

Fechr (pronounced feature) is a new internet promotion site that can really make a difference in the traffic you get. Each day it will feature one website or blog for a full 24 hours. It’s an interesting idea and I think there’s a good chance it will take off and do well, unlike recent similar [...]

A monstrous movie

Just saw a trailer for a new movie by J.J. Abrams slated to hit theaters on January 18, 2008. 1-18-08. It looks awesome and I really hope it doesn’t turn out sucking. Good old viral marketing is playing a huge part with this flick though. The trailer starts out looking like a typical teen party [...]

Premonition (spoiler alert)

DO NOT READ IF YOU HATE SPOILERS! Watched Premonition last night and overall I liked it, but part of it did piss me off. No, it wasn’t the ending. I liked the irony of her trying to save her husband but in the end it’s her fault for making him turn the car around. Well, [...]

EQ2 – The Estate of Unrest

Thursday night is typically our guild raid night, which means we usually have a full group of 6 people on. Yep, we’re a rather small guild. There used to be 12 to 18 on raid nights, but a lot have grown bored of the game and are taking a break until RoK comes out and [...]

The Estate of Unrest

One of my favorite zones as a young cleric back in the original EverQuest was definitely Unrest. The house was so cool and had a lot of great camping spots. The bar, tower, hag, hand room, oracle room, basement and ghost room. It’s been so long that I’ve forgotten the real names for some of [...]

My traffic doubled overnight?

So this morning I log in and check my page and notice that my traffic counter has gone up a fair bit overnight. Thinking something strange is going on, I check out sitemeter to see where it’s coming from. This is still pretty new to me and I don’t do much for advertising and what [...]

EQ2 Quest – Sword of Destiny

What have I gotten myself into this time?  Some guildies told me they were working on the Sword of Destiny quest the other day, so I asked where it started and flew off on my magic carpet to check it out.  Starting in the Commonlands with an easy trip to 3 different statues to kill [...]

Advanced Spam Scam

The scam I wrote about a few weeks ago has gone to a new level. They have downgraded from e-mail to Snail Mail. The best part? They claim that since I share the same surname as the deceased, it will make the process quick and easy. The problem? They got my last name wrong. Yup, [...]

The voices

I just had to share my favorite kitty pic from icanhascheezburger.com.

EverQuest 2 Quest List

The last couple times that I played EQ2, I had downloaded a massive spreadsheet list of all the quests in the game and ticked off the ones that I’ve completed already.  The major pain with doing it this way is that when the list gets updated, I have to go through and re-check all the [...]

Vote for the best short story

About a week ago I wrote a short story called The Keepers House for a contest at scribblescratch.com. Teresa has decided that instead of choosing a winner herself, she is going to put up a poll instead. So please, go and vote for your favorite story (mine please?!). Links to the individual entries can be [...]

Another story I wrote 18 years ago

This is a story I wrote for an English class project in grade 10 I think, so it’s not very well written or anything, but read it if you like.  This is exactly as I wrote it back then, no editing or anything.  I can just imagine the comments I’ll get on this crap =)

The Muppet Show

I used to watch this all the time when I was a kid, it was one of my favorite shows.  And now that my kid is 3 she’s starting to really like it too.  So I get to watch them all over again, and honestly, they hold up really well.  20 years later and it’s [...]

Deadly Imagination

I wrote the following story in 1993, born of boredom while taking an Accounting course at NSCC, which means I was only around 19 at the time. Deadly Imagination It was a morning much like any other in the town of Ridgewood. Spring was in the air, trees were starting to turn green with new [...]
