This weekend I:
- Finished my laptop repairs. Great success!
- Starting customizing a chess set.
- Designed, prototyped, and play tested a new board game: Argentina.
- Cooked a huge gourmet Mexican meal, including Tequila tasting and full cleanup.
- Finally cleaned out one of my various hoards.
It was very good times: productive, without being draining. Relaxing, without the guilt of doing nothing. I’m quite self-satisfied — and now it’s time to turn in and get a good rest for Monday
Video has unprofessional audio — needed to take room tone and invert to cancel the ambience. Those blocks look like a motherfucker though.
I’m trying to learn passable chess, finally. My workplace is highly political, and I need to learn to think several moves ahead.
I like the integrated trainer and nice looking polish of this one. There’s a Go training app upcoming, which is what inspired me to look for this.
Oculus Rift game where you cheat on tests in a SCHOOL OF DOLPHINS. Except dolphins come in “pods”, not schools, and the game looks kinda dull. Mostly I just want an Oculus Rift.
Push Fight is inspired by concepts from Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
I’ve hidden all posts older than January 1, 2013 — and might hide some more — because I’m doing business with some serious folks who are very nice, and don’t need to know how crazy I am forill’ tho.
