So... is it just me, or has anyone else noticed that edits seem to have been dropping off a lot lately? I mean a whole lot. It's 1:46am (PST), and just on the standard "last 50 edits" recent changes, I can see back to 3:47pm yesterday. Past 250 take me back to 8:50pm on the 2nd! I can't remember the last time we've had such a slow spell.
Now, does anyone else suspect that the "New Look" could be at least partially to blame for this? I know that even I have had some trouble doing simple things like checking page histories. I'm afraid it might be too much for new and unregistered editors. Or is there just something else going on (or not going on) that explains this precipitous drop-off? (And knowing me, I could easily be missing something!)Read more >
So here's the thing, people: This blog is mostly for my own personal user. I have a pretty poor memory, and as many of you know, I also maintain a "Featured Bio" on my userpage that is updated more or less regularly. So, in order to keep me from repeating myself, and to provide a sort of archive, I'm going to keep track of them here. Still, since this is a blog, and I don't intend to disable commenting, I figure I'll try something here. I am occasionally at a loss for ideas. So, if anyone wants to post suggestions, feel free. Now, an important thing to point out here - if you suggest a name, this isn't like a radio station where I'll put it in the rotation and get to it eventually. I have to agree with it before putting it on my user page. …Read more >
So, something else happened on September 7, besides Lair of the Shadow Broker. As some of you may have noticed, a new DLC for Dragon Age: Origins also came out on the 7th, and was immediately overshadowed (no pun intended) by LOTSB. In fact, it hasn't even earned a news post on the Dragon Age Wiki! So, in an attempt to do it justice, I'll post a little blog about it here.
The new DLC is called Witch Hunt, and as the name implies, it does have to do with Morrigan. And I have to say, I found it quite enjoyable. To be honest, I didn't like the two new companions (the party consists of you, the dog, a Dalish elf warrior, and a mage), and was constantly hoping that I'd have the option of either killing them myself, or getting them killed. But the …Read more >
Ok, as some of you may know, I don't like things to get too serious around here. I like things to be fun and inviting and whatnot. And it did get a bit serious tonight. So let's get some frivolity back in here! So, here's what this blog is about. A simple question- no right or wrong answers (well, it should go without saying that anyone who agrees with me is obviously right, but other than that, no right or wrong answers! :P). So here's the question:
Who is your favorite villain from any of the Star Trek movies? You can explain why you picked who you did if you want, but it's not mandatory. Hopefully we get some variety of answers. Now, who would I pick? It's obvious. A real open-and-shut case in my book. The greatest Star Trek movie villain is obv…Read more >
So, I've been thinking about doing this for a little while now, and decided to do it in the form of a blog, as opposed to something on my user page. As none of you probably know (seeing as this is the first I've mentioned of it), I'm a voracious reader, so I figured I'd start a little area to comment on books I'm reading, maybe give people some ideas or whatever. I should provide a disclaimer that, while my tastes are rather eclectic, I do enjoy political books, so there may be some books here that are partially, or entirely, comprised of opinions you don't agree with. So without further ado, here's what I've read this year so far/am reading. Enjoy!
