I'm flying out to Boston tomorrow to go to PAX East. I normally go to PAX Prime which is closer to me (in Seattle) but this year I'm meeting Byrnie and Jen in Boston for PAX east. Boston being nicely equidistant from here and the UK with a relatively less arduous 6hr flight makes it more palatable.
1. Don't make any resolutions for 2015
Bugger! oh well maybe next year
So I'm out in New York for a week for a brief holiday meeting my parents halfway rather than them coming over to california for a visit.
I've been documenting my adventures thus far on the badger (http://www.rocket-propelled-badger.net) should you be interested.
Tomorrow evening I fly out to Seattle for Pax Prime and I'm really looking forward to it. Last year byrnie and myself attended PAX prime then flew to newzealand which was astonishingly tiring PAX by itself can be quite overwhelming add 13hr flight and crossing the dateline so you lose a day and it's not fun. We has planned for it and spent our first day in Auckland draining countless cups of coffee and generally looking bewildered at the time shift.
Some of you are aware of the current changes that have been happening at my work place. Long story short the company I worked for went bankrupt sometime in December.
So I got my Visa and got back to the US not without some drama. The visa turned up on monday about 4 hours after they promised it would appear but given it had been quite snowy and traffic hard I was willing to forgive that it also meant I was back from darkest Suffolk after Fishcon to receive my passport in person which required no form of ID.
So I’ve not written here in a while I’d mostly settled in to living in the US and for the most part that’s pretty similar to living in the UK (just with better weather) so I’ve not really had anything to say that felt like this was the place to say it.
So I'm back from PAX Prime 2012 had a great time lots of good stuff seen played or licked.
Ah the elder scrolls games I have been looking forward to it ever since Notch announced it in march of this year ... oh wait wrong scrolls.
Anyway I've played 4 of the 7 Elder scrolls games (though only five of them have numbers the other two were The Elder Scrolls Adventures: Redguard an early 3rd person action game and An Elder Scrolls Legend: Battlespire)
So quite out of the blue I find myself with a new job.
What happened was the company I currently work for sold off their UK design center (which was originally the company I first joined years and years ago that got bought out a few years back) to another company who make things like SSD’s as part of that I got moved over.
