Started on Learn Python The Hard Way(http://learnpythonthehardway.org/) and got up to Chapter 39. It's pretty great and I highly recommend people check it out. It's totally free and you can support the creator either through those previous links or by buying the book on Amazon. Around that time I picked up Learning Python and have been reading through it as well to get some more background on exactly how the program I wrote in LPTHW CH39 even worked. Learning Python also gives me some perspective on the differences between Python 2.x and Python 3.x. Also, started writing programs and scripts to help my do my job, which is nice. Things are good, if not a bit busy. Sorry for not stopping by my own...spot...more often. Anyway, I highly recommend you guys give Python a whirl. Learn Python The Hard Way is actually a pretty great introduction to the language and is free if you go to their site. Learning Pytho…
As I'm sure many of you are also doing this week I have been playing a lot of Destiny. I'm enjoying the game and that's the problem: I can already see the beginning of the end when it comes to my enjoyment of this game and it's complicating my current enjoyment.

A layer of randomization has been added over everything: the number of
hits needed to take down an enemy is no longer a product of impeccable
balance but is now the byproduct of hundreds of dice rolls. When was the last time the game gave me a suitable upgrade for my gear? What are the stats on my primary weapon? What is the level difference between the enemy and myself? Which enemies d…
The door was cracked open as ma went out earlier.
The storm they heard of on the radio really was coming, and it mad the sky look like it was having a funeral for the sun.
The porch creaked underneath her big'ol feet.
"Bessie is that you?" Ma called out to her.
"Yes ma it's me." She replied.
"Well, why are you sneaking like some thief?" Ma scolded her.
"donno ma." She replied to ma.
"Well, you know I love ya?" Ma called out in a softer tone.
"I know ma." She told ma.
She took a few more steps outside and she saw ma rocking in that old rocker.
Ma had pa's old shooter on her lap.
As ma saw her ma gripped pa's shooter.
"Bessie you know I love ya?" ma called out to her gripping pa's shooter.
"I know ma." She told ma.
"Well, why are out 'ere for?" Ma asked her.
"Well, I wanted to play." She told ma.
"Get inside and play." M…
