Yes, I still blog!

Hmmm... what's going on?
|ED-E (Enclave amnesiac)|
However, I've hit an imposed limit in FNV. At Level 30, I can't earn perks anymore, so I'm recruiting all the companion characters one at a time, and expunging the generic location markers on my map with the been-there-done-that version.
|Veronica Santangelo (BoS)|
Right now, I'm playing with ED-E and Rose of Sharon Cassidy, even though most of the tour was with Veronica, cooling her heels with Raul Tejada, the ghoul mechanic, in the Lucky 38 Presidential Suite. Rex was upgraded with Violetta's brain in Jacobstown and is back with the King, Lily is in Jacobstown, Boone's in Novac. Arcade Gannon is still in the Old Mormon Fort, a no-show so far.
|Rose of Sharon Cassidy (Ind)|
With the exception of Dead Wind Cavern, all the deathclaws have been eradicated. It's tough to take them on in enclosed spaces with no way to keep our distance.

A little morbid lately...
Aye, aye, I!
I've been playing through Fallout 3 again. At Level 8, my groupie shows up to give me a stimpak or bottle of Nuka Cola and pray these random items will help to keep me safe.
Thanks. I take it personally, you know... :)

Two years and counting...
That kind of information gives one cause to pause and rethink one's options. I've elected not to receive a liver transplant, for example. And I've already had one NASH-related episode of mental confusion (hepatic encephalopathy). An unexpected turn of events. What, no aneurysm? No stroke or heart attack? No car crash? Strange!
Oh well. My other complications mitigate against wasting somebody's perfectly good (by comparison) liver on yours truly.
I meditate on these things. "When it's hot, I sweat. When it's cold, I shiver."

Consolations of Philosophology
I think the first rule of scholarship is to recognize that learning from somebody else's book is self abrogation; unless one can raise a Spocklike eyebrow no learning occurs and no reference to the Real has transpired, not even when that reality is a mere hell imagined by clever poets. Dante. Milton. Fun minds who entertain. Or Einstein, unapproachable without years of frozen meditation and no fun at all without epiphany.
Whatever. The truth is, I'm searching for a good recipe for lentil soup. The rest is inconsequential.

SQLite Manager is back in my good graces
I couldn't use SM on Ubuntu for years because of some obscure bug or other. Very nice to see my data back on Mac OS X Lion.

Star Ocean Second Evolution (PSP)
Update 2-9-12 I accidentally beat Gabriel (and recruited Noel, but missed Chisato and Opera Vector), so I never got back to Virtual Expel or the Maze of Tribulations. A bit premature there...

Unhappy with TurboTax
Good lord, federal efiling is supposed to be free. I don't know why I had to pay the third party "fee" but it will never happen again.
TurboTax is a sharp practice artiste. I do not, can not, and will not recommend them to anybody.

Hospitalized by NASH!
Nash is not a get out of a jail free card. It's still liver disease, and bacterial ammonia in your gut will do nasty things to your illusions of Selfhood.
