Well, tomorrow we leave for our trip. So I've pretty much rigged the site up to run itself! Provided I can check email at least daily, which I believe should be quite possible, I can run things like a real business (which is to say, much less responsive than usual, but still within 24 hours). It'll be two loooong weeks. Especially for my poor kitties. Should be business as usual by December 7th. Oh well, here we go! Let's hope everything works as expected. Good luck surviving without me.

  Also, WoW! 05:44 PM -- Wed November 17, 2004  

I just want to also add that officially starting today I am going on a mini-vacation. You see, World of Warcraft is going to be released early next week. Once it's released, it will cost $15 a month to play. So as you can imagine, early next week will be the end of my WoW career (I am in the beta test, so it's free). So I need to get to it and play like crazy! What an amazing game, and boy will it be influencing Bad Graphics (although you probably won't even be able to recognize any of the influences... they're very different games!). So forget work, somewhat! Time to level up!

  Still here! 05:32 PM -- Wed November 17, 2004  

I am still alive and still working! I've made a lot of progress on the Supreme patch. It's got a lot of new editor features to spice up levels with, although they're all pretty subtle - you'll really need to be a serious world builder to take advantage of what they offer. But if I'm right about them, they'll give you great new powers to make players suffer in new ways!

I'm also working on some website stuff. I've already (finally) automated the newsletter signup process, but I still have to add a way to actually send to the new automated list. I've also beefed up the ordering process (this is not online yet) to check orders more thoroughly before sending them to me, so that I can feel safe with part 2 of this process, which is at long last having automated downloads. So now when you order a game (on CD or download), you'll get a download link immediately, as well as your CD or emailed download link later. There's another problem with the ordering, which is that it rejects an order any time it encounters a special character (like accented letters), which is common with orders from foreign countries. I still don't know quite what I can do with that, but I'll try to come up with something! The drive behind getting these changes in was actually the fact that at the end of this month, we will be leaving for 2 weeks straight! So I want the orders to be handled automatically. I'll still be checking email, but I can only do that once a day or so, and it's a serious pain. CD orders during that time will be postponed until we get back. There will of course be a notice so nobody is surprised by that!

Why are we leaving for 2 weeks? Not for fun! I will now let you all know that my wife is going to be donating her kidney to her cousin at that time. Really! She's pretty amazing. Of course, once we get back, she's got another 5 weeks of recovery time where the doctor says she's not allowed to lift more than 10 pounds. So guess who gets to do everything around here?

Vote here even if you're not American or not 18!

The Hamumu Election 2004

Polls close in 5 days. We're a lot more lenient than the US.

  Just a reminder 04:22 PM -- Mon November 1, 2004  

If you are a US citizen 18 or over...


And don't believe anyone who tells you there's some little rule that means you can't vote. You can. There are provisional ballots, there's election-day registration, and other rules to make sure that everyone can vote (these vary by state - google your state and "voter rights" or something like that to look up the info if you're not registered now). It's really important. Really really important.

I'm not going to try to sway you one way or the other - the important thing is that you place your vote according to what you believe personally! Which of course means you better know all the information you can get. Unfortunately, pretty much every source of information is badly biased to one side or the other, so I hope you've heard lots of things from every side, and you know who you can trust. One place you can probably trust is www.factcheck.org, the site that Dick Cheney meant to point people to in his debate. Unfortunately, it's not a general information site, but rather a site debunking the lies that come from both sides. If you know a site that you think is really non-partisan and informative, post it in the comments!

And just in case you didn't hear me the first time...
