Why Steins;Gate is about me

I have come to the conclusion that someone at nitro+ must know me somehow, because the Steins;Gate characters of Okabe Rintarou and Hashida Itaru seem to be based on different aspects of my personality. Not only that, but there are also central plot elements, and some supporting character traits that seem to come from my […]

Bakachan and IRC; Equal Measures Villainy and Comedy

I have been known to make sport of people on IRC, it’s one of my pastimes.  But usually someone has to catch my attention to be targeted. Let’s talk about one of my pet peeves: Away messages and notifications.  Seriously.  It makes sense if you’re a channel regular, or staff, or really anyone people give […]

Archived: Lots of stuff going on, I’m not dead!

Okay, so, first of all, this site is getting replaced by a new WordPress blog when I have the opportunity, and the posts will be restored with the original timestamps and everything. Secondly, the care and feeding of my arcade cabinet has been very fulfilling so far, both for me, and for the cabinet’s coin […]

Archived: Err, wow.

So, on Atheist-kids-get-presents-day Eve, I got an e-mail from someone named Jason von Nieda saying that he really loved the design I had for my vacuum tube clock, and that he used it as inspiration to machine a similar enclosure of his own. He included pictures of the finished device. I know a bit about […]
