Just received a purchase order from a customer for one item ... quantity zero.

Picked up the Noble Armada game on Steam over the weekend.

It's one of the least intuitive games I have ever played.

It's an RTS where giving your units orders pauses the game.

An RTS where you can control a maximum of 4 units, and you can't group them - each unit gets its orders individually.

An RTS where you click-and-drag to set headings for your ships and then click-and-drag to set the units' speed.

On the plus side, the opposition ALSO caps at 4 units.

I really hate how often the power goes out, here. And how long it tends to be out for.

We're at one hour and counting.

Another game whose English version has my fringerprints on it has apparently won the SdJ.

That makes three winners and six nominees on my list. Nine games total, three of which were the Kennerspiel.

It's an oddly good feeling. I must be good at what I do, right?

We have some awesome customers. One came in yesterday and *gave* us a 60" TV. It's a lightly-used Pioneer Elite plasma.

My cohort has a 49" LCD that it will be replacing.

Sorry for the downtime folks! I'm on leave and busy with family stuff. @blinks stepped up and solved it. And since he's amazing, he wrote a post-mortem: gist.github.com/blinks/dabac9f

I'm so glad that dice.camp appears to be back.

Frustration is having more than a week of vacation stored up but no fully-trained backup who can cover so I can take it.

Spent a chunk of my break reading the warranty and service manual for the new car.

It only needs oil changes every 10k miles. That just boggles my little "Every 3k or your engine will seize" mind.

This has knocked me off my stride this afternoon.


Lone Wolf & Cub is a series I came to later than many - and I got there from the films before I knew there was a Manga.

This is a significant loss to the manga art.

The boss came in today with donuts. Two dozen donuts. For the three of us.

The car is officially dying. We have 232k miles on it, so we knew this was coming. But it needs $3k in repairs in the near future (oil pump and front suspension work).

Much as I'd love to just fix it, we're at the point where every week something else will need fixing. Cheaper to just suck it up and get a new car.

We love this car, and will miss it greatly.

Today is Transfer Day. There are eleven Weber Genesis grills on the truck inbound to my office. We need to unload them (without a dock) and then stack them (without a forklift) so we have room for them.

I say, "We," but what I really mean is "Me, unless Mariano gets back soon." Because the only sales rep in the building is already complaining about his back.

Started my usual morning routine this morning: Come to work, sign in, do the banking, take 15 to check social media and work a crossword.

My first social media account to check is always Plus. I didn't get any further today.
