Also, I pretty much only use Google Reader and come to comment when it strikes me, but I like when posts pop up in my feed, so take what you will from that. Lastly, "#blogging is a total waste of time if you view it as a chore/assignment. #fact" (that was a Tweet a friend of mine retweeted, and while it's maybe not exactly what you're feeling it's true, so just do what you can do when you can do it and you won't feel burned out or whatevs) You’re still a-okay in my book.

Ajisai? @Riddles Ajisai next time you're in Toronto? Also, had a chance to play SSF4 on a demo unit a rep brought around to the store. That shit is awesome. But not $250 awesome. And it being Nintendo, I'm willing to bet they're gonna release a new unit a year from now that address the battery problem. The rep said she didn't run into any problems with it, and she's running demos 8 hours a day. But this is with the wifi off and the screen brightness low. @Ethos My courses are wrapping up in a couple of weeks. Ajisai?

Making themes last two weeks and making columns an every other week deal would help. In February I had a daily 30 minute status call that always lasted at least 45 minutes and the manager would apologize every day. Eventually I was like "You know, if you rescheduled this as a 60 minute call and we finished in 45 minutes, we'd always finish early and you wouldn't feel guilty" and it was like I Blew. His. Mind. I had been going into the calls with the mindset that they would last 60 minutes for days, so it never bothered me when they went over 30. I read Riddlethos.com with... a similar mindset... and so I don't think you need to apologize or feel guilty. -One of the worst, if not the worst, moments in my childhood happened the day I beat Pilotwings on the SNES. Just thinking about the series or seeing a screenshot makes a part of my brain shudder. I will never touch the series again. -Good to hear you're one of the sane people when it comes to DA2. There's a weird situation on the RPGamer staff where too many of them think it's amazing. Even though I'm open to subjectivity and people having opinions, DA2 is weak in many ways compared to BioWare's gems. You haven't even finished it yet -- the last act seems to be the part that frustrates people the most with its lack of awesome. -The 1 week schedule felt rushed and inadequate even when the site was a month old.
