I've actually been - Gasp! - working on this blog layout this morning. I'm getting pages organized and filled with links to the appropriate blogs.The majority of the work is listing and linking all those System of the Day posts. The major "issue" I have is deciding on the front page layout, wording, and the … Continue reading Working on the site…
With massive apologies for my lack of content, I have bopped in to show those few of you who've stuck around that I have not disappeared! I've been dealing with a number of things, notably:1- House repairs (which aren't bad, just annoying and time consuming).2- Depression. Anyone who's read my blogs will know why. I … Continue reading I have returned, or “I’m not dead yet!”
After months and months of delays due to work, injuries, lethargy, and depression, I am ecstatic to finally report THE REMODEL IS COMPLETE! There are still minor issues to complete (touch-up painting, changing out light switches, buying a garbage can which isn't pink...), but the most time consuming, difficult tasks are done! Now, to finally … Continue reading IT. IS. DONE!

It was a good week. Problems discovered include bad cable wiring (I posted about that earlier), cut cable wires (my own darned … Continue reading Fun Times in the Basement – and Success!
Well, that was perhaps THE easiest transition I've ever had to deal with! Smooth is good. I like smooth. Well, other than the growing smooth areas on my scalp... lolol. As stated, the new domain name for this blog is "hiverlordshijinks.org". I'm kind of shocked, actually, that I don't need to make any real changes … Continue reading Easy Peasy
Well, I won't say what set me off (again? lol) this time, not yet anyway. But there will soon be changes to this blog. Not the System of the Day project or my occasional ramblings, but to the blog's location.Currently I am searching for an inexpensive, reliable, and (most importantly for an "older" geek like … Continue reading Upcoming Blog Changes!
Here I thought I was just dealing with another bout of depression. No...Apparently, I missed a notification in my area about a "Pollen Alert". It was rather bad this time around...No wonder I've felt like crud! I've made it through work and basic house stuff, of course, but that's about it.Now that I have things … Continue reading Under The Weather
Today is the birthday of Marc Miller, Traveller's creator and "Emperor", as he is lovingly titled by fans of his RPG Traveller. To state that this game and other various products has had a huge impact on my life would be a 'slight' understatement. (I've been dabbling in Traveller and other GDW games since 1981 … Continue reading Happy Birthday to “The Emperor”
