I’m an Uncle (Again)!

First dog watch, 3 bells (5:32 pm)

My youngest sister Betsy just had her second baby. Zoe Gabriella was born about 20 minutes ago, weighed 8 pounds 6 ounces and was 21 inches long. She has lots of light hair. Sounds like she looks like her mom and her grandma.

I think this is the 8th niece/nephew of mine. If you count step-brothers and sisters it's 12 or so. I'm starting to have a hard time keeping track…

It's a good Firefly-themed name, though I doubt it was intentional.

Happy Volcano Day to everyone that was nearby when Mt. St. Helens blew. Can you believe it was 29 years ago??

Book Recommendation?

First dog watch, 1 bell (4:53 pm)

I'd like to find a good book (or website/reference material etc) on AI programming for game development. There are a lot out there though. I'd like to hear from someone that uses it. Specifically, this post is targeted at Ben 🙂 Or Richard, if he comes around here.

Any suggestions?

Refrigerator Delays
Forenoon watch, 2 bells (9:29 am)

I just called Whirlpool to check on the status of my new refrigerator—it's delayed again. Honestly, it's what I expected to happen. I have such bad luck with things like this. I placed the order on the 6th, and now it won't be available for pickup until at least the 29th. This is such a good deal though, I know it's worth the wait. It's just a tough wait when you have no refrigerator.

Anybody else notice the similarities between this and this?

Creepy!
