I couldn’t ask for a better day to reboot my blog than Pi Day, arguably the geekiest of geek days. If I was willing to wait I could have held out for “Pi Approximation Day” (22/07) which is coincidentally (or is it…?) my birthday. But putting it off that long tempted the possibility that it would never get running again, and I could not countenance that!
I know that some of you never really noticed I was gone, and some wept bitter tears and cursed cruel fate. I know the latter might be an exaggeration. But however you felt about me leaving, I’m back now. And daddy is going to make everything all right.
Oookay, I promise to never type those words in that order again…
Expect a geeky post of some kind every couple of days, more often if the mood takes me. As the blog title suggests, while I hold myself to be an “expert” in a few select areas, I definitely selected “breadth” instead of “depth” when delving into the course catalogue at Geek U. Nothing I write (unless I specifically say otherwise in a post) should be taken as my last word on a subject; I am more than happy to have someone correct me or point me to additional information. As a teacher once told me, “If you aren’t f&*%ing up, you aren’t learning.” By that logic I learn oh-so-much every day…
So here is what caught my eye today:

Great art, great writing and if you don’t recognize at least a few of these characters, you are both lucky and not gaming enough. d20 Monkey gets 4 nat-twenties out of 5.
If you have somehow managed to avoid it until now…shame! Paizo’s RPG Superstar is entering its final round, with voting open tomorrow to pick the winner from the top four.
That is all for now, my fellow geeks!
