Midwest Gaming Classic 2010!

Tuesday, May 19th, 2009

While the location will be announced very soon, the dates for next years MGC show are out. The show will run the week before Easter, which is March 27th and the 28th! The show will be growing in size by around 20%, and as mentioned in prior posts, will be moving to a different location closer to Milwaukee.

That is all I’m saying for now. Stay tuned for more info, probably early next month.

School is out for ever…

Thursday, May 14th, 2009

Well, school is not out forever, but at least for the time being. I had my last college final test a little earlier today (PC Hardware class), and Aced it, of course! 🙂 Trying my best to stay as close to a 4.0 average (I’m at a 3.9x at this point -will know the official number in a few weeks).

It is nice to get off school for the Summer, as I got lots of little (and a few big) projects I want to try to get done with my house. I was going to take one class for Summer, but decided the house was more important now. It would be nice to get more credits done, but the house needs work done that I’ve been putting off for too long.

Of course, I’ll miss some of the folks from school, like a few classmates and my last two teachers. The teachers I had for the Spring semester were great, and both had a great outstanding of humor. Both are mothers, and stories about there kids were fun (and sometimes rather cute). Met a few new people too, like Ben, a rather well versed Linux guy (who got me really interested in Linux now). I’ll miss Stefanie from my Hardware class too. Wonderful young woman, who will hopefully graduate next Spring and get a much better job than she has now (not that her job isn’t bad, but she deserves much better)! Of course, I plan on keeping in touch with these folks, if I can bloody help it. You can never have enough contacts, friends, and the like.

I’ll be relaxing for a few days now, watching a some movies and catching up on my slowly growing CD collection (new Pet Shop Boys release, plus the Indigo Girls, and many others).

later…

A few more pictures…

Yeah, it is May now, but I finally got around to posting a few more pictures from the MGC ’09 show. These are from my helper Erica, and are in the 2009 photo gallery, listed under MGC II photos.

Enjoy!
