Re: Wealth, Energy, and Work

Shifting from the lofty to a more mundane chorus of, "this core idea makes sense" I'd like to share an anecdote from an outstanding real estate agent who helped us buy a house in the Triad area of North Carolina.

Re: Negative Article on Clayton Homes

I have worked in a different area of the lending world, both bank and finance company, for years and think this article looks biased toward the negative for a couple reasons. I do not have a lot of time today, but:

Re: XCOM: Enemy Unkown

I would agree and slightly strengthen Simon's comment, if you think you will only play this twice I would try the vanilla game first and then the expansion. Without using a spoiler, there was one substantial change I found interesting in the [more]

Re: [PC] Pillars of Eternity out today!

I'm maybe a dozen hours into playing, and it has potential. It has quite a distance to go before the resonance of Planescape Torment, but they are doing something interesting with a kind of modified waking dream state which might really gel in time. [more]

Re: Totally OT: Need your good wishes

Two quick follow ups, my Jewish friend Karen wrote to say she certainly will say a Mi Shebeirach for you.

This is a fairly raw first draft, but I felt the urge to write something myself:

Re: Good & Bad writing in games - violence

I was complimenting Wasteland 2 and Fallout, and thought I cited those in the original post but might not have.

The game I'm struggling with is Borderlands 2, over an issue I cannot recall ever bothering me before. Maybe I'm just getting [more]

Good & Bad writing in games - violence

I am struggling with a game that has elements I love but has such a relentless sense of what writers intended as dark humor that I may stop playing and make a point of not recommending the game. To offer a little context, I thought some examples done [more]

Is TurboTax safe again?

A quick look at articles suggests the software, which I have used in the past and generally like for a moderately complicated individual family return, might be OK.

A decade later - basket of pharmas

Back in late 2003, we decided to move a portion of our portfolio into a long term bet that a basket of pharma stocks would do well. This was prompted by Warren Buffet's comments during the shareholder's meeting that year with regards to aging baby [more]

Re: Sid Meiers: Starships

Wikipedia had a little color (below). I could see a rich gaming experience in 2D, but you are going to need to bring a lot to a genre that has been mined by some other great games:

Re: So..EthylMercaptain? Wasteland 2?

So..EthylMercaptain? Wasteland 2?

Maybe I should be able to figure this out on my own, but I gotta ask. We get to enjoy some interesting game and value investing posts from Ethyl Mercaptain, which is an odd name.
