Diablo III

I just got done watching the cinematic trailer and gameplay video for Diablo III. WOW!

For the record, I am a big fan of gaming. I particularly enjoy World of Warcraft at the moment but I was a huge fan of Diablo and Diablo II back in the day. I was really excited to find that Diablo III was in the works. It really looks great from what I have seen so far.

Here is the link for you to enjoy the videos as well if you like.

Diablo III Website

I know I will be buying this when it comes out. Maybe I will see you on battle.net in a dungeon someday.

Cool Comic Site

I have recently become aware of a pretty cool comic strip maker. You are limited to a few characters and some of them are rather wierd as in a dude with the body of a pigeon but others are normal. You can adjust positions of characters and speech bubbles, change background colors, and scale sizes of the people. You can also choose between a 2, 3, or 4 panel comic.

While there is no way to add any drawing of your own and no other objects but people and speech bubbles, there is some potential for the really clever minds out there.

Check out my attempt at making a comic. I figured since I am a tech guy, I would make one related to that.

Deer - Satan's Helpers

Ok, I am offically declaring that I think deer suck!

All they do is threaten to kill me several times every week. Sometimes they stand in the road and wait for me and other times they dash out when I am least expecting it.

Just this year, so far, two deer have made contact with my car. There literally must have been at least a hundred that have tried though.

The first contact, I was actually charged. It was almost as if it thought I was the one doing the threatening. It came out of the ditch and head-butted my driver door. What the heck! Scared the peaches out of me. Whatever the reason for attacking me, I won... stupid deer - made him do a face plant on the blacktop. Try flanking an Intrepid going 55 mph again, idiot.

The second time this year must of been a deer that was dared by her friends to play a game of chicken with that white one coming down the road. I managed to slow down a little bit but still hit her. I just clipped the back legs and had her doing a little slip-n-slide on her hind quarters for a few yards before she ran off again. You know her friends were still in the ditch on the other side laughing in a strange deer kind of way.

So, what is the deal? I see more deer than anything else on the road. I am not constantly dodging cats, dogs, bear, foxes, skunks, porcupines, raccoons, wolves, squirrels, chipmunks, badgers, etc. with my car. JUST THE DEER!

GOOD GRIEF! Get out of the stinkin' road, you dumb animals. I swear they must be Satan's helpers because they are always the ones out there causing accidents. Always the deer. I hate deer.

I am not a hunter but have often thought that I would take up the sport just kill a few. Someone else can have the meat. I just want to kill the deer.
