The one thing I like best about my blog is that hardly anyone reads it, when you consider how many people read a major news site such as CNN, or even a mainstream gaming website like Kotaku.  I like this because it means I don't have to deal with a bunch of fucking morons clogging up the comments section on every post I make.  I wish the ability to comment on articles on the Internet would go away entirely.

And for the record, I'm not against free speech.  I'm against fucktards.

Download ALL the things!

I got my house re-wired today with upgraded internet, phone, and cable TV.  My download speed has more than doubled.  OH MAI GAWD.

I'm now 95% through Black House.  When I reached the end of the chapter there, the book tells me that if I wanted, I could stop reading now and be happy with the ending.  And y'know, I am happy with that ending.  It was excellent.  The book warned me that if I kept reading, I wouldn't like what happened next.  It's like the ending of The Dark Tower all over again.

I shut off my Kindle and went to bed.  I'm not sure I'm going to finish it now!
It's a cold, rainy Monday morning.  Most people would attribute such a day to depression, or use it as an excuse for why their in a shitty-ass mood.  I, however, feel pretty good this morning.  I got plenty of sleep and I'm not letting anything really get to me today.  It's good.  It's gooooood.

So, what's goin' on?

First of all, I'm 90% through Black House.  I should be done with it this week -- hopefully before Tuesday so that I can dive right into The Wind Through the Keyhole.  Last night, I read probably the most gruesome ending to a villain ever.  The current victim of the serial killer fought back, and grabbed the bastard's testicles.  And squeezed.  Until one of them deflated.  Ouch.  Of course, that wasn't enough to kill him, so the boy then reached into the stab wound on the guy's stomach and pulled out a few ropes of his intestines.

Bluh!

On to more pleasant things.  Well, at least more pleasant than that!  For starters, it looks like t…
I've been giving The Witcher 2 another honest-to-goodness effort.  With the enhanced edition out, I figured now was the best time to do so.  Well, given that the devs have proclaimed the game now "finished", I'm still not impressed.  I just had to close the game because Geralt was stuck in a wall.  I really have no desire to open it back up, either.  It's a bit depressing, because I was actually interested in playing through it all the way.

I suppose at this point I just feel like I'm sitting between games waiting for something.  There's going to be another month of that, give or take.  Diablo 3 is out next month, and that will give me something to hack away at for while, probably until Guild Wars 2 releases in hopefully June.

The good thing is, if the only thing I have to write about is my indecision on what game to play, things must be going pretty damned well.
Topic number one, if you haven't listened to the new Linkin Park song that was made available on Sunday, go do it now.  It's very good.  The song is called "Burn It Down", and you can find it on Linkin Park's website or on Youtube.

Next, over the weekend (on Saturday, I think, or it may have been Friday night), I set up my seed starter kit.  That included a warming mat for the bottom, two trays, soil pellets, the lighting system, and a clear cover for the trays.  The soil pellets are just about the coolest thing I've ever seen.  They aren't really much larger than the size of a lego, and you drop them into the bottom of each cell in the seedling tray.  Pour a bit of water on them, and the things expand to fill the entire cell with soil.  It's just about the coolest thing I've ever seen.  Though, I'll admit that I'm easily amused.

After I was amazed by the soil, I planted some seeds:  Broccoli, Pumpkins, Green Beans, Morning Glory, Cosmos, a…
I was going to make this post about how fucking stupid human beings are, but I'm honestly a bit bored with making fun of this ridiculously unintelligent species of mammal.  Besides, it's not like I need to continuously remind you of the fact.  Just go outside.  You'll see.

Furthermore, I figured that my first post in a while (Has it really been 24 days?) should be a tad more optimistic than a rant about non-existent intelligence quotients.

The truth is, though, that this post is probably going to be rather depressing anyway, even while leaving out that topic that I keep saying I'm not going to talk about yet have dedicated three small paragraphs to already, anyway.  Oops.  Let's get the depressing stuff out of the way, first.

For the past several weeks, I've been testing the upcoming release of one of our web-based applications.  It's one of my company's many software applications, and I'll refrain from stating which one just on the off-chance that …
