Free Thoughts

Writing a comprehensive set of rules for the Fellowship Hall is proving very difficult. It seems very hard to balance freedom with order while remaining bibliocentric.

Kroger’s Big K Cola is surprisingly good, and was $5 less for a 24-pack than Coca-Cola products.

I like free (or, GPLed or comparable) software. I like learning through experimentation. Thus is born the Angel Creator. Go ahead, make an angel.

Akismet has recently blocked spam #1,000 from appearing on Ramblin’ Rick. Thanks, Akismet team!

Many of those blocked spams were in the form of jokes (ending with links to discount drug retailers). Joke spam. Do they really think it’d be more effective?

Signing Time Kids: It’s goofy, but it’s for kids. Sign language is something I can just barely speak, so I did learn a few things from the episode of this I caught on television.

I have heard that Kel Mitchell died, but his Wikipedia entry does not reflect this. Any truth to this hearsay?

Every myth has roots in truth. It’s a pattern I have noticed since the eighth grade when I first heard that the Babylonians also had a flood story, and I have continually noticed new rip-offs (that others are sure to have noticed, but it’s exciting noticing them on my own), with the Caduceus being the latest.

I recently purchased a used copy of The Legend of Zelda: Collector’s Edition, a comparatively rare GameCube compilation disk containing the NES games The Legend of Zelda and The Legend of Zelda: Adventure of Link and the N64 games The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask. Having not owned or played any of these games for several years, I must point out they are just as fun as they have ever been. I still dream of a Legend of Zelda movie someday being made. That would be wholly fantasmagorical!
