So it's been 143 days since my last blog post. Back in June I made sort of a semi-pledge to "take a little time each week to keep this blog updated." Well, that obviously didn't happen, and I'd just like to apologize to all of my regular readers (all three of you) for my lack of follow through. Not that I don't have a good excuse.
According to the Holmes-Rahe Life Stress Inventory, the last five months have constituted a "moderate life crisis" with "50% chance of illness such as: headache, diabetes, fatigue, hypertension, chest and back pain, ulcers, infectious disease, etc." That's probably pushing it, but the point is that with graduating, moving to Seattle, starting a new job, and getting married, I had a lot on my plate.
Now that the dust has more or less settled and things are finally starting to level out, I'm ready to start contributing to the site again. And although I've been absent for several months, I've still managed to do plenty of videogame playing (funny how that works). I also got a chance to fulfill my longheld childhood dream of being a playtester, thanks to my newfound proximity to Microsoft.
So check back in the coming days and weeks, as I plan to resume my regular weekly schedule with a variety of posts on videogames and the science and technology to which they are related. Greg Oden may be sidelined once again, but for what it's worth, I'm back in the game.
(NOTE: The picture above is of a bear that has just come out of hibernation. I had trouble thinking of a picture to go with the idea of something coming back after a long absence. The comparison doesn't really fit, since I haven't really been hibernating and I'm not bear-like in any way, but that's all I could think of.)
