Xbox Live Friends and You (and Me)

Okay, so, I haven't been playing Halo 2 very much lately. World of Warcraft kind of sucked me in, and then KOTOR 2. And that's just since Christmas. But I checked my friends list today, and apparently I have around 75 people who want to be my Friend on Xbox Live.

Guys, no offense, but if I don't know you, you're not my friend. If we meet in a game, fine, that's a good way. But sending me a blank friends request or a request saying "You don't know me, but you work at Bungie and I want to kick your ass" is not a good way to introduce yourself.

See you around, and Happy New Year... in 14 minutes, Pacific time.

So I finally did it

So, I finally joined the rest of the world and started my own blog. I guess it is kind of silly that I didn't have a place for just posting whatever the hell I feel like talking about onto the Internet when I've been using it for so long. Especially considering that my job entails me spending a lot of time with a community web site to begin with. That's probably the reason it took me so long - I didn't want to deal with another web site when not at work.

Yet, here I am. In this space, I'm going to talk about whatever pops into my head, and basically talk to no one in particular. Feel free to comment, positively or negatively, or simply email me at And, before it starts, I should let you know that I'm not going to be answering any questions about my employer or projects there, and anything I say will not be their opinion. This is for stuff not dealing with work, because I can't really talk about work without it being taken out of context and made into an "official" statement.

I think that sucks, myself. Such is the nature of the Internet, though. Ah, the nature of the Internet... we'll eventually have a conversation about how the anonymous nature of the Internet makes most behave like a racist, homophobic, idiotic schmuck, particularly in forums. Or, rather, you'll hear me complain about it. A lot.

Serves you right for reading this... hehehe. Me, I'm going back to enjoying my vacation. Hope you had a good holiday. Everybody be safe on New Year's.
