  1. Selling "some" comic books

    I wanted to post this here in case any of you nerds were interested in purchasing some comics. After dragging my heels for more than a year because of how terrifying the thought of organizing them all was I'm finally starting to sell off most of my comic collection. I'll be keeping some things, but not much of it.

  2. I actually updated my Mystic Quest LP

  3. Workout log: week 1

    I've been back to the gym for a little while now, but have been busy lately so I haven't been as consistent as I'd like. Figured starting a workout log might help to keep me on track to get there at least 3 days a week. Anyone who wants can feel free to post their workouts for the week in the comments as well if they want to partner up to keep each other motivated.

    One thing which I won't post every single time is the warmup we do. We always warm up before starting strength work at ...

  4. Would you like a copy of FTL: Faster Than Light?

    SC2 events seemed to fail to coalesce, so anyone interested in winning a copy of FTL: Faster Than Light on Steam just go to the events thread below and post. I'll be doing the draw on Friday and we're having an FTL get together this weekend which will include a special guest.

  5. April Steam events: join for your chance to win free games

    Nope, I am not suddenly a spam bot (as far as I know).

    I just wanted to mention for those that don't usually pay much attention to the Steam events that this month we're doing something a bit different. If you're able to join in for some games of Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm tomorrow, or FTL: Faster Than Light a few weeks from now, you'll have the chance to win FTL and the original Deus Ex.

    You can check the thread linked below for the details. It should be lots ...

  6. Dietary Adventures: where we dissect science!

    Okay, so not all scientists suck, but roll with me on this for a minute.

    So I've been waiting weeks for a study to come out that I could really sink my teeth into in this blog. Any study would do since most nutrition studies are pretty bad, nutrition study reporting by news media is even worse, and I wanted an recent example to share and dissect to demonstrate the point. I wanted to do this maybe a month or two ago. Of course, because I wanted to do it, I didn't see any until last ...

  7. Dietary Adventures part 4: Getting unfat

    Just to recap part two since it was almost two months ago, we talked about how people get fat. The process is largely driven by the hormone insulin. When we spike blood sugar, insulin is released, some of the glucose is burned by our bodily tissues, any excess is stored. Spike glucose really high too often and congratulations, you're obese.

    So what do we do about it? The answer is really simple and should be pretty obvious: stop spiking blood glucose. It's very hard to lose weight ...

  8. Diet, computers and other miscellaneous stuffs

    Now that the whole CK competition is over I finally have some time to get back to this and I figured I'd give an update on some things.

    First, the diet has been treating me well. Last time I weighed myself (maybe two weeks ago I think) I was down to 290lbs. So that's about 10-15lbs. weight loss. I really should have weighed myself when I started, but the minimum I lost is 10lbs. My depression has been quite manageable as well. Most days it's not even an issue.

    For anyone ...

  9. Dietary Adventures Part 3: Where I give you an update

    I haven't had time to get to the follow up for my last post, so I thought I'd give a quick update instead.

    My first week was something of a wash. My wife was in the hospital for some minor surgery in the middle of the week so I was grabbing meals where I could get them and wasn't always making great choices due to general fatigue and disinterest since I was spending my time either working, or with her in the hospital for a few days. But of course, the most important thing to do when ...

  10. Dietary Adventures Part 2: How we get fat

    I realized after my last post that glossing over the details of what I'm doing and why in a few paragraphs and recommending people read a book or watch a documentary to better understand what I'm doing is a silly way to go about things. So I'm going to talk a bit today about how the body stores fat, and why I'm choosing specifically to go with a low carb diet (or more accurately for me at the moment, extremely low carb). I realize that all of my talk of aiming for so many grams of this or that with ...
