Back from Toledo

Finally back from my regular travel schedule again, this time for more than just the weekend.  As part of my work, I routinely travel to Toledo, which although it is a nice enough city, is not home with the family.  It also makes it difficult to work on my various …

Site updates

It required a few extras days of tweeking, but after my recent issues with the FreeNAS update, I finally have the ability to upload files at the appropriate size limitations.  This means I was able to finally post the Tree template I created recently, as well as link to a …

Rise of the Runelords, Chapter 3.1 (video)

Another round of the Pathfinder campaign, starting Chapter 3 of the Rise of the Runelords this time.  The group of 10 adventurers are still at level 7, but after their success in the second chapter, managed to gather a small number of magical items to assist with their questing.  The …

Update to Trees

Over the weekend, I began to notice memory issues on my FreeNAS server which I use for many purposes, including hosting this site.  Initially, my thought was a hardware problem with the memory, but at this point, I am suspecting it was either a problem with the FreeNAS OS code, …

Rebel Fleet dispatched

Kitchen remodel time lapse

So, I had the intent during our recent project to film the entire effort, and then provide a time lapse video of the entire process.  The good news is that I collected a lot of footage, on the order of 100 GB of 720p video using my recently acquired camera. …

Kitchen Remodel

Missed my post yesterday, because I very simply was too tired, sore, and distracted to do so.  This weekend was our long planned kitchen remodel, in which we planned to replace the rest of the cabinets, fix a number of electrical concerns, and repaint the kitchen.  The theory was a …
