Snowy Minneapolis

Editor’s Note: This is the 1,000th post on

Its been pretty busy. We had a great break back in Lincoln celebrating Christmas and New Years, spent a lot of time playing games like Agricola and N+ with the family. We are back in very snowy Minneapolis now. It is pretty, though.

I helped David with a project over the break. I helped him with a “clean sweep” of his office. We started at 7 a.m. the Friday after New Year’s and cleaned and organized until 11 that night. Put a bunch of stuff in a sale pile, cleaned everything, and setup a new desk … it looks awesome now!

Jantina’s ongoing project has been on converting our DVD collection to computer hard drive. Once that is done we’ll be able to select any movie and stream it to any TV over the network. It works out really well (except for subtitles on foreign movies like “Hero.” Haven’t figured that out yet).

CES and Macworld were last week. The only thing I’m really looking forward to are the new OLED displays, though it will be some time before they are affordable in larger sizes.

Electronic Gaming Monthly is closing. I’ve subscribed for nearly 20 years and they are closing the magazine and the editors are dispersing. I’ve been adding them all to my Twitter following list so I can see where they land.

    Wowsers, I heard it was -40, which means that flesh can freeze within 10 seconds. Is that true? Have you tried it?

    Haven’t tried to freeze the flesh off just yet 😉 It is -27 this morning, I’m not sure what the low was, maybe it did get down that far! Yikes!

    Don’t forget the duct tape if your lips fall off.It got down to -8 here this morning, with warnings of possible -25 wind chill. I was surprised all the schools called off today just for cold.

    That is strange, I don’t remember getting out of school for cold. Our windchill did bring us down to -40 today for a ‘feels like’.
