Meltdown on Steam

I’ve had this game sitting around in my Steam list for a long time (another Humble Bundle purchase), but just now got around to firing it up. And Oh! My! Gracious!!!  This is such a fun game! The weapons are fun, enemies are goofy but deadly, and the visual style is both gorgeous and cartoonish. This has become my new favorite game!

Meltdown is a tactical arcade shooter featuring both singleplayer and intense online multiplayer. Become the most skilled soldier, choose your weapons, get the best upgrades, buckle up and start your mission. Be careful, each enemy has it’s own combat style, special AI and gear. Adapt to them to survive!

Amiga Games now available via Internet Archive

Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, oh my gosh!!! The Internet Archive just dumped a metric buttload of Amiga games and software!  Anyone who loved and used an Amiga back in the day will be rejoicing today! There are so many classic titles available. Looking through the list, I see some of my favorites (Lemmings 2, Pinball Fantasies, The Lost Vikings) plus a ton that I always wanted to play (Batman: The Movie, Arkanoid: Revenge of Doh, Ninja Mission). I even see a bunch of non-games.

This is so friggin’ amazing!

Useful Crontab Header | [ squarism ]

Years and years ago, I wrote about an awesome crontab header that I had found somewhere on the net. At the time, I linked to the page but did not include the actual header in the blog post. Now, the site that I linked to is gone, and I could not find the header anywhere in my dot files.

Fortunately, Squarism came to the rescue!

WeightJournal – October 2, 2015 – Puppy sighting!

WeightJournal – October 2, 2015 – Puppy sighting!

In this week’s video – recorded live from one of our local parks – I babble about how our bodies tend to try and get rid of weight if we stay out of their way. I think I probably have talked or written about this before, but it keeps coming to mind. Once a person is 50+ lbs overweight, our bodies actively start trying to lose some of that weight/fat. We aren’t meant to be that obese, and our…

WeightJournal, August 13th, 2015 – All about exercise!

I know, I know, normally when I’ve taken a couple weeks away from this journal, it means I’ve started gaining a ton of weight. That isn’t the case this time – I just completely lost track of days/weeks. I’m back now, though, and this week I’m babbling about my activity habits over the last 9 months, including how I’ve tended to feel about exercise videos/equipment, along with my newest endeavor,…

My message to Jeb Bush

Bush’s full quote is: “it’s a huge challenge for single moms to raise children in the world that we’re in today, and it hurts the prospects, it limits the possibilities of young people being able to live lives or purpose and meaning”

To which I, having been raised by a single mother, and having not only had numerous prospects but have a life that is full of purpose and meaning, have one thing to say to Jeb Bush (@jebbush) : “Go fuck yourself!
