Old Email

I've been digging up old emails from various programs and shoving them onto Gmail. I just found a few more stores tonight. Unfortunately, they have yielded very little. Even my PST file from my NIHLBI days was mostly empty.

I think that I was using Yahoo mail for some correspondence. I abandoned that account around 1999. I likely could not yank data off of it. I am sure there was email there.

It' amazing how little I remember of how I used email only a decade ago. I also find it amazing how little of it has survived.

First Fourth Edition Game

We held our first fourth edition game on Sunday. Things went OK. They could have gone better.

Part of the rocky start was that two of the players did not bother making their characters until we were there.

What I learned: the PCs identify skill challenges where I do not. I then toss a skill challenge at them. Whooo. They seemed to enjoy the skill challenges. From a DM perspective, the game flows a whole lot better. Part of that comes from listening to the WotC DM's handle their games, and what they felt was important.

Drinking from Cups

Hers Truly is getting good at drinking from cups. She went almost ten minutes before she attempted to overturn it. She is even sucking down that water pretty well. The dribbling is far less.
