Portal 2 DLC news, Nintendo Café(?)

This is a bulky one today, so settle on in…

Now, I could easily go and copy/paste a large amount of completely useless information on the PlayStation Network hack, but I have decided to save that until there is more helpful and less gossip-y information around the whole thing.


Either way, we shall jump into the upcoming Portal 2 DLC that has already been announced…for free…in the summer. I don't think I need to say just how excited I am about this, after my Portal 2…

NASA: Increasing Awesome



In which Hank talks about the 0.45% of the federal budget devoted to space education, and what NASA is doing with that money.

VEDA/BEDA (and a little update on Projext X)

This blog post comes in two parts, kind of, not really, okay it does!

Well nerdfighters, the month of April started about two week ago and that meant VEDA/BEDA for many!

A return of Book Tuesdays?

Yes, I have been a pretty fail Books ningmaster of late.  Some of you may have noticed that I haven't posted a blog in ages, I haven't updated the reading page and I haven't chosen a new blurbing book club book.  I'm really sorry for all of that.


I've been pretty busy of late with other responsibilities in my life.  The length of my ningmastership has gone on a lot longer than I'd originally expected - I always knew that things would be start getting tough to juggle once my…
