Found a Spiderman Noir comicbook the other day, and picked it up for my roommate. It's a neat little rewrite set in the 30's, during Hoover's presidency. Peter Parker comes from a family of Communist Activists who get on the wrong side of some mobsters funded by big business, who then killed his uncle. Parker ends up encountering a Voodoo Spider-God, which grants him juju powers, which he uses to track down and assassinate criminals.

It's pretty gritty, with a significantly more Batman feel... but it's pretty neat!

Commie pagan Spiderman? Sounds fun.

EDIT: If Ayn Rand is one of the supervillains, I'm sold.

I've never been a big Comics person, but I've always had a soft spot for Spiderman, and Anansi has always been one of my favorite gods. Put them together, with a side of gumshoe detectives vs. mobsters, and I'm pretty happy.

My sleep schedule is finally straightened out to where I don't go to sleep at seven in the morning and wake up at five in the afternoon.  Been waking up anywhere from 6 AM to 11 AM lately, which means more time to talk to my friends.

Looking for an apartment with one of said friends right now and I'm finally getting ready to leave home.  Long overdue, in my opinion.

I played Company of Heroes for the first time.

That was... hrm. Well, that was probably the very first time I've ever played an RTS seriously with an intent to finish a game. I lost my first game, of course, but it was spectacularly fun. I love all the detail that went into the maps and squads and such. The way the units spout out things like how much they hate their jobs is great. The artillery strike-type special attacks seemed a little tacked on for some reason, like they were operating way too much on generic RTS logic. But that didn't really matter to me because wasting resources on that kind of thing felt awesome.

Thanks nenjin for getting me interested in this game in the first place. I'm glad I spent $2 on it.

The Onion is so unbelievably awesome, this news article by them made me laugh out loud.

Me and the same troll met up four times on Omegle's question-answering thing. Each time we would say hi and laugh about how funny it is that we met up again (we knew it was each other because he'd post a trollface ASCII art and I'd say "oh hey trollguy a/s/l"). Eventually the fourth time we got into a lengthy discussion about life, college and video games and then added each other on Steam.

Random strangers on the internet are not all bad.

Brand new shiny HP Touchpad sitting on the porch at home waiting for me. Can't wait to set up a dual-boot with webOS and Android.

Did they finally put out their long-awaited second round, or did you leverage some inside connections?

I was thinking about getting one of the $99 Touchpads, but grew out of the habit of frequently checking for updates.

Inside connections. They had a web-only sale just within the company. Got me one of the 32GB, $149 jobs. Dunno if they're going to offer any more to the public or not. There seems to be some question as to whether Meg Whitman is going to reverse the policies of Leo the Mad and keep the TouchPad around after all (and not get out of the PC market).

From what little inside connections  I have (much less than Redking, I assure you,) in the PSG (HP's Personal Systems Group), PSG is getting spun off into its own business under the HP brand, so that they can react to the market faster. From what I heard, the new photosmart printers coming out late october had been in the works for almost two years. That's an unacceptable turnaround time because of how quickly hardware and designs become obsolete. They're looking to cut down on the red tape that each design has to go through.

When the PSG spinoff happens, the PSG will be ranked #16 on the Forbes 500. PCs bring in more profit for HP than the entire Target chain makes a year. So, no, HP is not getting out of the PC business. They're just going to do it a little differently, even though the logos aren't even going to change. It'll just help HP's R&D focus on the enterprise stuff like the board wants them to do, while forcing the board to be less hands on with PCs, which brings about innovation, because everyone working on PCs will actually know what they're doing.
