      Well, it was finally announced.

      The third World of WarCraft expansion, Cataclysm, is set to hit store shelves on December 7th, 2010.

      Yeah. I am going to be unavailable for like a week.

      Anyone want to go to my classes for me?!

    • DragonCon 2010

      Okay, so, yeah, this weekend is DragonCon, the big Sci-Fi convention that occurs over Labor Day weekend in Atlanta every year. I haven't gone for the past two years, that this year is not going to be any different. I really miss it and I wish that I was going. I used to have a blast. There are going to be a lot of really cool Stargate people there this year.... and because of different things with our situation, I cannot go.

      On top of that, I really miss spending the time with my friends and having a ball wander around in costume.

      I really hope and am crossing my fingers that I can go next year.

      I miss it. A lot.

    • School

      7 years ago

      USSArizona

      Well, I just started my first week back actually 'in' school.

      I am really looking forward to it!

      Classes:

      French I
      Yes, I know, it is rather lame, but what the heck am I going to do about it? My foreign language is all 10+ years old so no university accepts it as completing the foreign language requirement any longer. So I just have to plug away at it, again, like I did for two years in High School. Jeez, this really makes me feel like I am getting too old!!!

      Calculus I
      This is going to be a tough class. You know it, and I know it. However, I am really excited to be taking it. Why? Because the last time I took it, I actually began to understand it but I wasn't quite ready to put in the time and effort that was required in order to get a good grade in the class. I am now a few years and a few years wiser, so I know that I am much more prepared and much more ready for this type of work load. I am really looking forward to testing it out, working hard, and seeing if my newfound determination is really up to the challenge that I think and believe that it is.

      Intro to Computer Programming: Programming with Alice
      Alice is a computer program, sort of like an intro to Java. It is really so far and it is going to teach the basics for how programs work, debugging and getting everything right. I am really enjoying working with the program thus far. I am new to programming, so it is cool to learn all of the little bit of syntax and all of that stuff that actually goes into writing a program. This should be a lot of fun.

      Oh, and I finally figured out what I want to do with my life. I would love to be a programmer in the short and in the very long term, get a masters and finally a doctorate and teach programming and basic computer science at a University.

      So here I am. Getting off to a good start. I am so excited!

      P.S. No DragonCon for me this year. :( Hopefully my friends will bring back some good stories though!

      Is freaking awesome.

      I got the collector's edition last night and it is, honestly, amazing. Blizzard did a great job with it.

      Can't wait to get through the rest of the campaign missions!

    • New SGU and... Other Stuff

      7 years ago

      USSArizona

      Okay. Enjoyable.

      Now, will the rest of the season be like this?

      The jury is still out. But... it is possible.


      For a lot of you that have me on your watchlist, I know it has been a while since I have been active on here. Why? Well, mostly because of life AND because WoW was consuming it. Now, I find myself playing a lot less. I don't raid that much any more. I rarely say that I will make it for something and I usually put myself on the Alt list. That way, if I show up, they can have me. If I don't, it isn't a big deal.

      This has really given me a lot more freedom to do what I would like to do. I am spending a TON more time outside with my dog, Caly, and simply being with my wife. It has really helped to change my life around; doing something as simple as lessening my time playing a video game. But, when a game starts to become a something more akin to a job... it stops being a GAME.

      All that being said, I should have another project in writing coming up very soon! It is called:

      The Adventures of Ordo: Ghosts of Karazhan

      Now, many of you will recognize the term Karazhan. On the other hand, many will probably not. However, suffice it to say this is a fan fiction, set in the World of WarCraft. It has to do with an intrepid group of adventurers and why and how they are in Karazhan, trying to find their way to Prince Malchazar. I am really hoping to get rolling on this soon. My first title in this series: The Origins of Ordo Fidelis was written exclusively for my guild. It was a lot of fun, but I want to expand this title a little bit and make it a little bit more main stream, palatable for the masses, as it were. I should also mention that it is being co-authored by my good friend and guild-mate, Boombastic, aka Boom.

      Sooooo, if any of you enjoyed my earlier works that I put up on this site, please stay tuned for more!

      Oh, and I promise to start writing more in here. :)

      Well, I moved to Greenville, NC. My wife got a job in Kinston working as a Dietician at Lenoir Memorial Hospital.

      Anyone know anywhere cool around here?! I am getting annoyed with having no friends to hang out with. :)

      Be around more now. :)

      Okay guys. I know that it has been forever since I have been on here or posted anything, so I wanted to take a moment to say hello and let you all know what has been going on with me lately.

      The biggest thing is... I am engaged! Thats right! I am going to get married! Wow, scary, I know. Her name is Christie and she is really a great girl.

      Of course, the thing that brought me back here was the death of our hero, General George Hammond. He will be missed.

      Good to see you all. I should be around a little bit more often.

      Later!

      Okay, as you probably know, I'm gradually putting together the 3D animation of New Flight and, eventually, all its sub-stories. Now, to make this work properly, I'll need to have a model for you in it. Preferably looking like you, with your permission. And also, sounding like you, if possible.
      So, essentially, I need your permission to use your likeness and some photos or videos would be handy. Also, if you have or can get a microphone and some quiet time every week or two, it'd be great if you'd do the voice acting as well. I've still to get through the script with Shura and there are a few other things short, but only a couple more weeks, I reckon.

      Luke 2:1-20

      And it came to pass in those days that a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered. This census first took place while Quirinius was governing Syria. So all went to be registered, everyone to his own city. Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, to be registered with Mary, his betrothed wife, who was with child. So it was, that while they were there, the days were completed for her to be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

      Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.â€Â
      And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying:
      “ Glory to God in the highest,
      And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!â€Â

      So it was, when the angels had gone away from them into heaven, that the shepherds said to one another, “Let us now go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has come to pass, which the Lord has made known to us.†And they came with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the Babe lying in a manger. Now when they had seen Him, they made widely[d] known the saying which was told them concerning this Child. And all those who heard it marveled at those things which were told them by the shepherds. But Mary kept all these things and pondered them in her heart. Then the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told them.
