My Theremin, Dragons, & Doom3

The interview also mentions that the game-testing might go well into the summer; meaning that game will not be out anytime soon, and possibly not before the fall of 2004. Found a WHACK of conspiracy/paranormal sites today! Shadow (which I have linked to before) The Black VaultATSNN.comoh, and NetDetective which, for a fee, will find out anything you want to know about anyone. Thinking it’d be neat to a) search my own name; b) search my grandfather’s name. BUT I don’t wanna pony-up the $30 US. Also, they’ve apparently found a pickled baby dragon. The biggest problem I have with the article is this line: “The dragon is flawless, from the tiny teeth to the umbilical cord.” If I remember correctly, dragons (if they ever existed) are/were reptiles, not mammals - so they hatch from eggs and are not born from the womb. A dragon should have no umbilical cord. :(

Comments from my old blog:

(James Trott (UK))[] said: Derek, that baby dragon has been around ages, it was a joke sent to a museum from Germany. German scientists where trying to discredit british scientists and hence wanted them to think that that dragons actually existed. There was a big documentary over here about it, its definately not real. - James at 2004-03-11 11:43:28

dad said: derek,coffee yes but not with sugar and cream or milk that’ll drive your triglycerides (sugar) right out of the window and cause diabetes. seeing your printed circuit reminds me of the heathkit colour tv i built in 72 which had about 13 boards.If i remember correctly the cat at the time,jason,scooted off with a couple of transistors much to my chagrin. Methinks i should have shown you the library of diagrams i used at bell canada to fix the switchers and yes the diagnostic diagram shows you how it works but has no relationship to how it’s wired in real life,it’s simplified to give you an overview.Actual wiring diagrams take volumes to detail everything. at 2004-03-11 20:24:20

(mathninja)[] said: Lost in Translation - a movie about saying goodbye. Just caught it tonight, dude. You were right, it was totally worth watching. In reference to your much earlier post about it, I think the title refers to the idea of two people lost in another culture - Charlotte and Bob were all about culture shock in this movie. at 2004-03-12 03:39:34
