Happy Wednesday

Nothing much going on last few days. I did get a letter from my disability attorney explaining that my hearing could be anywhere from 3 months to 1 year but they are pushing to get the hearing as soon as possible. I'm really disliking all the red tape to go through just to get a little help. It's been insane over a year of this so far. Oh well perhaps my luck will change for the better soon.

In other news, been having some renovations done around the house, had windows replaced with much more energy efficient ones. And this week been having guys get the house ready to be repainted. Family members have been helping me out to get this project done, more as a gift. Which is pretty nice, it will be really nice when it's all done. The small annoying part is getting woke up at 7am to hammering and scraping as they remove the old paint and smooth things up in preparation for repainting.

Anyhow just thought I'd post a quick update on the personal stuff. Not much else going on, been playing Eve Online more lately, since I'm no longer playing Dark Age of Camelot. Eve is a great game, the politics and drama that exist in that game is insane at times but overall is what makes it really entertaining as it's more of a "sandbox" game compared to the level grinds of Dark Age of Camelot or other similar fantasy genre mmorpgs.

Will hopefully post a new video or odd news article in next day or two so check back, you may find something interesting from time to time.

Great Documentary on Nikola Tesla

Came across this great documentary of famed scientist Nikola Tesla who I find just absolutely amazing how far ahead of his times he truly was. This documentary goes into his experiments with free energy, scalar, wireless energy, experiments in weather modification, and even particle beam weaponry that is now being used by today's governments even though Tesla was deemed a "Kook" in his time.

Teacher fired for "Wizardry"???

Ok, I usually surf web and come across weird news stories but this one has got to be the weirdest so far.

Teacher from Pasco county Florida was fired for "Wizardry" this week. A quote from the article goes on to say:


Substitute teacher Jim Piculas made a toothpick disappear, then reappear in front of a classroom at Rushe Middle School in Land O' Lakes, Florida. The Pasco County School District says there were several other performance issues, but none compared to his "wizardry."

"I get a call the middle of the day from head of supervisor of substitute teachers. He says, 'Jim, we have a huge issue. You can't take any more assignments. You need to come in right away.' I said, 'Well, Pat, can you explain this to me?' 'You've been accused of wizardry,'" Piculas explained.


You can find the full article here at WFTV News Website.

Very Odd.

Edit: Here is a video on the subject from The Young Turks a video show on youtube, giving information about the above news story.

Been very busy

I've been very busy this week with work on my house getting new windows installed/framed, and have had a couple meetings phone and in person with my disability attorney getting things organized and waiting to get a court date. And of course doctors appointment this week, was supposed to be tomorrow but forgot to call in the appointment today so that will have to be done tomorrow.

Also in the world of gaming some bad news for those I represented as Heretic teamlead in dark age of camelot. I am no longer able to be the class teamlead and will cut and paste what I have posted on the Heretic Forum I also run which can be located at http://camelot.bluecherry.net

quote:

Some things happened more abruptly than I had planned, but anyhow I will no longer be serving as Heretic teamlead. The position will be opening up and one of you from the community better get! :)

I'm so thankful and privileged for the time I had being the team lead. We have gotten some great changes that were long overdue and I've fought tooth and nail for us. A big thanks to everyone that supplied me logs, screenshots, bug info, etc. It's the community that ultimately got us where we are today. So again I want to say thank you to the heretic community for helping me and this class be as good as it should be.

There is still things left undone that I wish I could be done, but they will have to be taken up by a new leader who will champion our class for us. Never lose faith in your teamleads, I do see the sarcasm that does occur, but we are in there fighting and petitioning the cause at every chance we get for the players and our classes.

I'm not sure what the future has in store for me, I will be willing to update any new teamleads on what I had in mind and the stuff I was looking at if they would be interested.

I want to thank Roadkillinz the previous teamlead for helping me get situated when I first became teamlead and has helped us and supported several of the issues I brought forth to the devs.

I do not plan to take the Heretic Forums down, I will leave it up as long as needed. Also if any of you do become teamlead and would like to use this forum on occasion please feel free and let me know and I can add you as an admin if you want.

Guys, its been a fun ride, and although a bit saddened and how things didn't go exactly as planned and all this happened a bit quicker than I wanted, but I hope that in the community's eyes I did some good for the heretic and that I won't be seen as a "lame duck" teamleader but as someone who loved the class and fought for us.

Again thank you to everyone, the heretic community is the best! And never change! It takes all types to make a community and I wouldn't trade it for anything. The Heretic community has been awesome!

Anyhow other readers not familiar with Dark age of Camelot may not know what I'm even talking about my apologies, things will hopefully be back to normal soon.

Hope everyone had a great weekend even though this is Wednesday, really looking forward to the upcoming weekend!
