Macbeth the Usurper

Upgraded Laptop

I upgraded my laptop HD today. When I bought the laptop, the size size HD up was a 160gb for $100 more. This year, I spent an additional $130 to get a 250gb drive. That option wasn't even available a year ago. I almost went for a 320 gb, but funds were a bit short.

The little girl had her designated "first birthday" party over the weekend. Her actual birthday isn't until the 26th, but this is when the family got together. The little girl did quite the number on her chocolate cake. There were so many photographers that the girl was blinded by the flashes. It was a bit overwhelming, I think.

When we got home, I could swear that the girl was glad that all that attention was over.

I am working on Wikiworld a bit more these days. I decided to write some stories to help flesh out my thinking. It is working. I've started with a group of characters, each having their own origin story. This gives each character their own goals, and by that extention, tells me about the problems of their people. Good stuff.

Documenting Novels

At this point, WotC has published 529 novels. That's a huge number. i can spend the next year shoving that information into the wiki. What's a shame is that they don't have a good handle on their own novels. Their site is a mess. Their releases don't track their own series. Finding anything is more a matter of luck than architecture.
