Quick Update

It's been a while since I posted an entry, so I figured I would do so tonight. Halloween is tomorrow. Where will I be? Tutoring. Oh well. Had a good time with some friends Friday night, then spent the rest of the weekend sick. I bought Ghosts of Onyx, the new Halo book by Eric Nylund, on Saturday though – amazing, just like the other three novels. Highly recommended. So yeah, that's about it. Random idea: Who would be interested in a feature where you guys ask me questions about anything, an

Short entry for tonight, since I have to get back to doing homework.   College doesn't seem to get easier after the first year. In fact, it gets crazier, busier (as you can see by the title), and much harder. Who would've thought that getting an education required so much work? So let this be a warning to you all. Also, don't try to get your Bachelor's and Master's degrees at the same time, that just makes it worse.   Back to the forges for me...

Rpg Contest #3

So, it's almost time for the second round of voting, and I've yet to decide how I'm going to sett it up. That's why I'm asking you guys to see what you think.   My first option is to have the top three entries from each poll go on to the semis, just like last time. Also like last time, all the first place winners would go into one poll, the second place into another, and the third place into the last; five entries in each. Then, from the semis to the finals, the top four first place, top three

Life... Don't Talk To Me About Life.

So much to do and so little time. That pretty much sums me up right now. Between classes and tutoring and BZPower, I'm reminded of a bathtub with all the water emptying out the drain. I want to get at least one other story about Brickfest posted, but I don't see when I'll have the time to. In fact, there's a lot of things I want to do but haven't gotten around to yet.   One thing I did manage to accomplish this past Saturday was to play some Halo. I was on Live for about an hour, then I switch

Debriefing

It's been almost a week since Brickfest, and I'm finally getting around to updating my blog. Brickfest was a blast. I know that there are people out there who dislike me and the staff of BZPower. But let me say this, these guys are some of the coolest people out there, and I was glad to spend the weekend with them. The creations were amazing, as were the builders I got to meet. The times spent outside the fest were great too, but I won't go into that too much here. It was a great way to end the

School Daze...

I'm sure many of you can relate to this in some way or other, either you've already gone back, or will go back soon (or you're 'lucky' and out of school). I return this Friday, drop off all my stuff, then head to Brickfest, so there's lots to do. I have to pack and make sure I don't forget anything, have to start thinking about books and classes again, etc. At least it means no more working, which is somewhat of a plus. On top of that, I'm seeing the Colbert Report again on Wednesday, so it's a

And So It Goes

I figured I should do something to get the birthday message out of my sig, since that was over a week ago.   So, let's see, what happened since then. I went camping with some friends, good times spent around the campfire having fun. Then me and some other friends went and saw the Colbert Report being recorded. We actually made it on the show for a split second! Finally I went p to Connecticut for what was actually some BZPower-related business, but I can't really talk about that right now. :X I

Happy Birthday To Me

I know a lot of you tried to wish me Happy Birthday earlier, but it wasn't actually my birthday at that time! Well, now it is, so I figured I'd make a blog entry about it, now that I've finished activating some accounts (yes, an admin's work is never done). The official topic is here (it's the real thing folks, I promise).   I hope you all have a good day on my birthday, and try not to spam too much!

That Darn Sun Is Hot

If/when you get a summer job, try to avoid one that involves working outside. In addition to the job I mentioned before, I've been doing some landscape work for a neighbor. With the current heatwave we've been having, it's no fun at all. Getting soaked in one's own sweat while removing bushes and shrubs is not an enjoyable way to spend a summer break, although it pays well. Hopefully the heat will break soon and it won't be as bad. So let this be a warning to you all, outside equals bad; stay in

The Trainman Cometh

Yeah, about the title, don't ask...   Anyway, I booked my train ticket for Brickfest tonight, so I'm all set now, I have transportation, lodging, and most importantly, registration for Brickfest, this is gonna be an awesome way to end my summer before going back to school (I hope)!   Aside from that, the anniversary went pretty well, although it was a chore keeping up in Games & Trivia and Voting Booth, since suddenly everyone could post there; but we managed.   Expect to see another new

Bzpower T-shirts?

I mentioned the possibility of BZPower T-Shirts at Brickfest, would anyone who knows they are attending be interested in one of these? If you're not attending, would you like to see BZPower sell T-Shirts online? The old Cafepress store is still floating around somewhere, but these would probably be nicer and newer. I was thinking of a simple design, a blue similar to the BZP Classic skin, with a small Hapori Tohu on the left chest with 'BZPower' underneath. There is the possibility of customizat

An Update

Well, so much for keeping on top of this thing... Anyway, finished classes last week, did pretty well I hope. Gotta keep that GPA up. So now I'll be working more, but don't worry, there will still be plenty of time for BZPower, the front page is evidence of that. In other news, it looks like I'll be going to Brickfest this year, along with quite a few other staff members. So if you can be sure to drop by and give your support to Bionicle! I've been toying around with the idea of having some

Finals

Well, there we go, I knew it wouldn't last. Anyway, tomorrow begins finals, so this is going to be a short entry. Well, actually, finals have already begun, since one of them is a take-home exam I received on Tuesday; but that's ok, it just gets it done faster. The take home and the exam tomorrow should be pretty easy, it's the one next week that's going to take a lot of studying. It makes me glad I have a week to prepare. Looking back, the summer semester went by really fast. It feels like

Rules And Why We Have Them

Three days in a row, I'm amazing myself here. This has got to stop sooner or later. But until that time, a short essay for tonight.   Rules. BZPower has lots of them. Each one is there for a reason and is meant to be obeyed. Sometimes there are circumstances when it may not seem fair to the individual. Think of this, however, with over 30,000 members, we have to think of the needs of the many as opposed to the needs of the few, or the one. (A cookie for anyone who knows where that's paraphrase

And Just As It Begins, So Does It End...

Well, it's been a fun almost three weeks, but the RPG Contest #2 is finally winding down to a close. Be sure to VOTE in the Final Poll, it's going to be close I'm sure, and the more entries the merrier. Good luck to all the finalists! I'm really proud to see how the RPG Forum has been growing recently. After I helped to create it around four and a half years ago it was a thriving place; but that slowly changed over time and it became less and less active. The inception of the RPG Contest has he

Congrats Than!

I thought I'd dedicate a quick Blog entry to Than: Matoran of Anger, BZPower's newest Forum Leader. If I could tell you the story behind his promotion, you'd be on the floor laughing, but alas, you all are not privy to such information. Obviously we wouldn't have promoted Than if we weren't sure that he'd continue to do an excellent job helping out on the message boards and represent BZPower in a professional, mature, and slightly crazy manner. You earned it man! For everyone else, watch what

Rpg Contest

I'm really liking this new contest thing, I should have started it a long time ago. Instead of worrying about RPG requests all the time, there are just four blocks of time during the year when I have to work a little harder and organize everything. And it works out better for you guys too. The competition increases the quality of the entries, and you get to pick the ones you want to play. Win-win situation.   Concerning the voting, however, see as how we've had over a 50% increase in the numbe

A Quick Update

It's been a while since I posted here, so I figured I should say something. There's not much to add, however. Between school, work, and BZPower, I'm kept pretty busy, barely even time to play Halo and such. I'm in the middle of midterms for the summer semester, so halfway there; though I wish I could say it's all going to be downhill, hehe. I'm working at a small company that designs and manufacturers control equipment for die-cast machines; it's a good job and I'm enjoying it. It's definitely

Moving Daze

So, I'm taking classes this summer at my college and therefore need a room to stay in. For reasons know only to the Office of Residence Life, I can't stay in my current room, but instead need to move to another dorm. Fine, okay, whatever. So I got assigned a room a few weeks ago, as well as a date to move in on. That date was yesterday. I'm still in my old room. Seems ResLife forgot about Memorial Day, and had been planning on cleaning up rooms then, but couldn't. Since my parents came by and to

Validating Members

Most of the people who will be reading this are most likely good, honest members who never would consider making a dupe account. So maybe you'll find this interesting. As the Administrator that handles all the Awaiting Authorization members, you'd be amazed at how many people there are that try to make duplicate accounts. I won't tell you how we find them, but we do, and they usually stick out like a sore thumb. Then there are the ones that blatantly try to bypass our language policy. And the on

And So It Begins.

Hey there everyone, thanks for stopping by and reading my blog. This will be pretty short, since I have lots of stuff that needs to get done today. Taking summer classes is really great in the long run, but in the short term it's hard to balance between doing homework, a job, and trying to have a social life. If you ever have the chance to get ahead in school by taking courses over the summer, go for it, but just beware of the consequences. You have to work hard, but just remember that it pays o
