Hitting level 8 we venture off and to the north and east to the village of Kol. In Kol we learn a couple interesting things, including picking up a hidden item (that we knew of beforehand). It turns out we actually want the Large Shield from Garinham, but we also do want the Half Plat from Kol, both things we accomplish (as well as getting to level 9).

Japanese Hiragana “S” and “Z” Syllables

These are the first videos I’ve made in this manner, and we made these in a public place (Starbucks, shocker) so the sound is wonky. But, here is the video explaining the cards, and the “S” and “Z” sounds of Japanese. Please pardon my pronunciation, I’m completely self-taught and so I probably do it a bit wrong.

Second Life: My New Avatar

So, as part of trying to start getting Original Pursuits Society off the ground we set up a new headquarters in Second Life. At the same time my avatar, that is the 3D model that represents you in the virtual world, needed an upgrade. Maus, the other cofounder, decided he’d pitch in a bit and help me ’cause I told him how his avatar always looks so good. Well, he didn’t disappoint!

Game Series Clock Tower 2: The Struggle Within Ending G

In this post I will be going through ending ranking “G”, as it requires a little different activity than the other endings. However, this ending also introduces us to Chapters 2 and 3, which I’ll use for reference in the coming post about endings H, and A through F. Can Alyssa make it out of a zombie ridden hospital intact, or will take a little Bates to take care of things?

Game Series: Dragon Warrior (NES) Episode 1

The first game in the Dragon Warrior series came out for the NES in 1989. It’s still regarded as the great-grandfather of the console RPG genre. I have written a review of the game, but decided that I’d do a Let’s Play Classics play through of the game. This is episode 1, featuring the the first approximate hour of game play.

Objconfig (Python): Config Class

I decided that, for future projects, I needed to port asherwunk/phabstractic to the Python programming language (pyabstractic). Well, phabstractic relies on a couple packages itself that are in the PHP domain. One of these packages is zend-config, which is part of the Zend Framework programming library.

In this post there are LOTS of pictures and a bit of video of the parades, fireworks, and attractions.

Game Series Clock Tower PSX Endings and Extras

I mean, there was something about getting all the endings that was somehow somewhat satisfying for me. In Clock Tower there are two character arcs, Jennifer Simpson’s and Helen Maxwell’s, and each character has the complete full ending, “ending A.” Each successive ending after that is basically a somewhat truncated version due to various decisions or things you did or didn’t do in the game.

The Candles Smell Golden

Asher loves Yankee Candle a little bit too much, doesn’t he? Python, Brython, and the latest in PyPI submissions is covered, but first, what happened at Shining Stars? Golden Girls will rule the nation. Will Artificial Life ever be drawn, and let’s get down with some horror synth.
