The Week In Fractures
The projects are beginning to close in all around me. Old projects that refuse to die and new projects with tight deadlines. Must get the darn things done! Finish them!

Got K8 to meet an old friend who I'll name Ger-Lad. Ger-Lad is quite exuberant about bowling. Was good to see him, and it was funny to hear him discussing finances and porn and friendship all mixed in with his friendly jabs and jibes.

Found a mysterious additional 1K in my bank account. I must be going senile. Where'd it come from?

K8 and I got to watch a neat B5 episode. While I felt that the acting could have been better, I did like how the episode dealt with religion in Science Fiction (and the Roman Catholic religion no less). Issues about whether the soul of someone who's been mind-wiped and given a new personality still bears the STAIN of past sins that he did NOT repent were raised. The question of courage Gethsemane was also considered. And ultimately, the foreshadowing of a sacrifice later in the series...

Busy weekend again... no time to rest... work work work...
New Worlds 2: A Revelation
It was not as difficult as I thought it'd be actually. But it was STILL gruelling.

This year, the booths were already set up by the tireless members of the New Worlds Alliance (NWA) by the time we arrived on Saturday morning at around 6:30am.

Thanks to K8 for being such a game sweetie and getting up and accompanying me to set up the AEGIS booth! We also brought along two of her chairs in case the four chairs allocated to us were not sufficient. We quickly found out that we were possibly the earliest booth to complete the set-up (mostly because we didn't have much). We raised the banner, set up the two tables, laid out the merchandise and were done.

Fortunately the build-em yourself metal display racks donated by Nabs (brought by Rocco around 8 or so) helped out the booth look somewhat. Many things that we asked for were already there, or had a ready answer (it's not ready yet; we're lacking circuit-breakers; it's over there; we're waiting for that to be delivered). Good signs of an organized effort.

Jay & Lenard were incredibly enthusiastic throughout both days in promoting AEGIS and the hobby! I still have to finish encoding the 99 members pala! Crap... it's lunch na rin!
To Geek, or not to Geek
You are 38% geek
You are a geek liaison, which means you go both ways. You can hang out with normal people or you can hang out with geeks which means you often have geeks as friends and/or have a job where you have to mediate between geeks and normal people. This is an important role and one of which you should be proud. In fact, you can make a good deal of money as a translator.

Normal: Tell our geek we need him to work this weekend.

You [to Geek]: We need more than that, Scotty. You'll have to stay until you can squeeze more outta them engines!

Geek [to You]: I'm givin' her all she's got, Captain, but we need more dilithium crystals!

You [to Normal]: He wants to know if he gets overtime.

I AM A Pseudo-Geek! What happened to me?
From the AEGIS Mailing List
Hello everybody!

I've been lurking for too long in this ML. Anyway, in 1 hour I'll be
in SM North watching Return of The King. After that, I'll purchase a
copy of the ADnD Player's Handbook at Comic Quest. After studying
the guide, I'll form my own RPG circle (affiliated with AEGIS of
course) here in Kamuning. Soon I shall recruit henchmen I mean
members for my little group.

I would like to thank the nice people at the AEGIS booth in the Sci-
fi and Fantasy Convention in Rockwell for answering my questions and
giving me advice.

Vinnie! Kaunting commission naman dyan! Kahit na libreng Mantis deck, ok na.
Excellent work, Team AEGIS!
