Revenge of Furbag…

Written by m0rg0th. No comments Posted in: Art, Film, General, Humour, Literature, Winge

I had been planning on seeing Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince tonight, but Furbag’s had me up since 05:00 this morning, and I just didn’t think I would last the movie out. Even went into work at 07:00 because I’d decided it was useless to try and sleep past 6 this morning. Curse […]

Perception, it’s really the lynchpin between the Objective and the Subjective. There’s no doubt I wasn’t socialized very effectively. I’ve spent the bulk of the last 20 years living by myself, alone except for Furbag. This has been my choice, yet a large number of people seem to believe that there’s something wrong about that […]


Oh Mr Postman…

Ordered last Thursday, and arrived today from Sydney: damn that was fast! A lovely package arrived for me at work today. Of these only one is truly “new”, i.e. Conan. The other two are expansions for existing games. But before I can get to them… It appears that Furbag believes possession is 9/10ths of the […]


Games, games, games…

I discovered today that I have three game expansions that were basically unplayed, and not even fully unpacked! The expansions in question were: The Tomb of Ice an expansion for Descent: a Journey in the Dark. The Island of Dread an expansion for Runebound 2nd Edition. In the interests of reducing the numbers, I cracked […]


The Whim of Aurora…

Age and Wisdom is all well and good: unfortunately the body doesn’t get wiser, only more fragile!


Yes it was a wild night Friday night, but fortunately the worst damage is shown below. Here’s another view looking South. All the rest was simply tree litter here and there. I count myself very lucky ­čÖé

As well as a few other server related tasks to do with MySQL and the Cyrus mail server I upgraded both mine and Furbag’s blogs to wordpress 2.8.1. I haven’t really explored the new features yet, but they were both due for an update, especially the Black Beast’s. Mine was 2.5.x before, but Furbag’s was […]


Free, soon to be freed…

Well the purchase has been made, I may not have to be getting up for Furbag 24/7 soon. I just need to get it in the window now!


In pursuit of gaming…

I’ve been pondering how to get a few more board games happening. The thought has occurred to me to try┬áremote board games. I’m considering how best to get an internet camera to effect some games across the internet with geographically distant friends. Of course it’s going to be difficult with the size of the board […]


Goodbye Sammy *sigh*

It’s 06:30 and I feel in chaos, perhaps a little insane. I can’t sleep, and my brain is flip flopping like a fish on the shore after being dropped off the hook… it’s almost like I was treading water at sea and suddenly the ocean’s gone and I’m looking down the abyss. Less than half […]


This is definitely a worry. My world is obviously crumbling…


A little bit blue(-ant)…

Normally resist such items, but today I walked out with a Blueant Bluetooth Headset and a Car kit for the iPhone. Both items combined came in under $150 so I don’t feel too criminal. One for home one for the car. I’d have forgotten to take the headset with me in the car most times […]
