Publication List Update

I just updated my Publication List to include a bunch of 2007 products, most noticeably the flood of stuff that Catalyst Game Labs has released since taking over the Shadowrun and Classic BattleTech licenses from FanPro LLC.There’s some seriously awesome stuff here: Shadowrun’s Augmentation is a great book, and the Classic BattleTech Introductory Box Set […]

“Deep Sleep” on MacBook Pros

My MacBook Pro has an "alleged" deep sleep mode. I say alleged, because the sleeping part of it seems to be SO DEEP that it never ever wants to wake up. I like to sleep, too, so I empathize a little bit with Lord when he never wants to wake up, but eventually, I need […]

Gen Con 2007!

Ah, the best four days in gaming. Also, non-stop meetings, seminars, and other crazy stuff. I had a really great time. First, obviously, I have to mention Catalyst Game Labs — this was our first GC with our new company, and we had a hot booth with new fixtures and all sorts of good stuff, […]

RAM Upgrade

I upgraded the RAM in my MacBook Pro to 4GB yesterday, and last night, I noticed that things were behaving a bit strange. Activity Monitor told me this: A reboot later, and it was gone.

Site Update

I upgraded WordPress and updated to a slightly-hacked-up version of HemingwayEX today. There are a few things I had working on my home test server that aren’t quite working here yet, but I was in the mood to web-tinker so I figured it was better to get this online while I had the time and […]

Classic BattleTech TechManual: Large, filling, yet aerodynamic!

TechManual for Classic BattleTech is available as an eBook, and the print version is at press overseas. This is a whopper; 352 pages that cover building every kind of \’Mech imaginable, plus infantry units, combat and support vehicles, battle armor, and other units. I\’m pretty sure this title has more tables, more math, and more […]

RSB on Recently Viewed Mail Smart Folders

Daniel at Red Sweater Blog wrote an interesting post about using Mail’s Smart Folders to create a Recently Viewed Mail Smart Folder — seems like a pretty keen tip to me. I’m giving it a try, and in addition to his Recently Viewed parameters, I’m also excluding it from a few mail folders that I’m […]

BESM Third Edition and Adam’s 2007 Schedule

I updated my Publication List to include BESM Third Edition, the last book I worked on as a freelancer for Guardians of Order. I finished the book nearly a year ago, and started it nearly two years ago, so it really feels like forever has passed. I haven’t seen my copies yet and long-ago burned […]

Handbook: House Davion … Finally

Handbook: House Davion for Classic BattleTech is finally available as an eBook, and the print version is at press. Talk about a project that sucked the life out of me … I wasn\’t originally scheduled to handle the interior layout, but I had a free few days in my schedule so I offered to zip […]
