The Big Update

  1. Britt and I have successfully purchased a house. We signed the papers last Wednesday and officially finished moving in last Monday. It’s a good thing.
  2. In the process of moving, we decided not to get cable television at the new house. As serious couch-potatoes, I see this as a big step for us.
  3. In the course of the last two weeks I have read four books, including Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows which I finished last night. It’s a good book and I would recommend it along with Blink by Malcolm Gladwell. I would not recommend The Cult of the Amateur. If I feel the urge, longer reviews of these books may be forthcoming.
  4. In addition to increasing my reading, the move has also emphasized just how little I really missed the internet. Oh, there were a few things I missed but not many. I think that I’m going to continue this disengagement for a little while to see what the impact will be. I will still be checking my email and working on new gaming projects but I think I’ll be visiting fewer forums and blogs. I don’t know how long it will last.
  5. Finally, I seem to have had an urge to blog. Whether this will continue, I don’t know. For a while I had considered just deleting my blog and homepage because of disuse. I still may do that. I guess you’ll find out when I do.
