Bring on the chemo

Well, I've finally done it. Despite my fervent belief (or is that hope?) that facebook causes cancer, I have created an account. My initial impressions of the site were not very positive to say the least. It seemed like a very clunky sort of system and I was having a hell of a time trying to navigate around it. Like a lot of things, it's a very modular setup and I figure it'll be a while before I find all the knobs and dials to get things just as I want them. I just managed to find the import blog function so hopefully this entry and future ones will pop up there as well. I'm feeling my way along and I'm forced to admit that it might be a better experience in the end than I gave it credit for. The jury's still out though.

One of the pluses is that I now have a way to get and keep in touch with some people that I had no easy way to contact before. Either we don't travel in the same circles online as far as forums or other sites go or there were just other barriers to easy communication. I'm also wondering if this will make group planning easier for events like origins or gencon when everyone who needs to provide input is in one place. I guess we'll see how it goes.

At the moment, the best and most frustrating part on the site is this little dnd application where you get a character and then try to level it up like a mini rpg. It's pretty spiffy, but it's also driving me up the wall because I keep getting my ass handed to me and 'dying'. It's called Tiny Adventures and if you decide to give it a whirl, definitely add me as a friend. I demand buffs and healing.

    I mentioned before that the nadir of Origins was probably around 4-5 years ago. The exhibit hall was a ghost town, vendors had fled, and it didn't…
