As far as coding goes, very little. I have a working game definition and I'm working on getting a set to work. As far as the game itself goes, I'm still ironing out how it should be played, but I have a few cards designed and a basic idea of the rules in my head.
hey, saw your post from the other day. what kind of games you talking about? i got an xbox 360. also, i signed up for this local meet up for nerds like us. i'll send ya the link if you want. later, nice meeting you btw.
Hm. Not on purpose; it's possible something happened to the blog comments by accident (I'm not a computer person) but I didn't intentionally turn them off. I'm not too thrilled by the school's move, but as far as it goes, I think I'll be okay. I've got a couple of posts that might be a tad more thoughtful than that last one, which was done in the heat of the moment.
On a different note, thanks for asking me about this. We don't know each other very well, and I can't tell you how much your concern means to me. You definitely remembered to be awesome. :)
I was reading the Gay Marriage forum in your Christian Nerdfighters group and was really encouraged by your biblical and well reasoned arguments, it was great to see some biblically sound doctrine! (I may be biased because I'm pretty sure I share your view almost exactly yay Baptists!)
It's too late to vote now, but thanks so much for your interest!
The Harry Potter Alliance supports LGBT rights and has done a lot to promote equal rights regardless of gender, race, or sexuality. They held a huge livestreaming/phone-banking/canvassing event in partnership with Mass Equality against Proposition 1 in Maine back in the fall, and will definitely do more in the future.
They're against global warming, of course, but The Harry Potter Alliance has worked a lot more with social issues thus far. Off the top of my head, I can't remember if they've done anything specifically about global warming, and I'm not sure whether or not they plan to in the future, but they don't deny that it exists or anything.
The Harry Potter Alliance does not support or promote any one political party.
All that being said, I'm not the best person to ask all these questions, because I don't have all the answers. If you want to know anything more, you should go on their website & email official staff. http://www.thehpalliance.org/
When I said keeping worship private, that was actually a mistake on my part. I was thinking about when Jesus warned the people of "practicing your piety before others in order to be seen by them" in Matthew. I'm not sure whether the statue applies to that or not. Either way, it is kind of weird to know that it's not there currently (or, rather, it's there but only the metal structure).
I watched the video and he does seem to have a better understanding of how government aid works than a lot of the other candidates. However, all of these videos are very short and his actual plea boils down very quickly to a request for foreign aid for his projects. It might work as a Project 4 Awesome video or a grant request but I want something different here.
If you have more details about his actual operation, feel free to send them to me. I probably won't vote his video up but I might find it interesting for other reasons or work it in as a link in a future article.
I'm not such a fan of government sponsored charities and foreign aid--on the whole, it's generally ineffective, putting a countries taxes to waste. What I enjoy about Shawn's activism is, is he's largely focusing on individual people, companies and organizations combating poverty, while also closely monitoring exactly how government funds for poverty is spent. So, yes, the video--and the UnculturedProject--may include the idea of foreign aid to combat poverty.
I'm not trying to convince you of anything, it's just, the "I think" part of your wall post made me wonder if you watched the video and investigated the UnculturedProject before you formed an opinion on it/took any action. That's what I like about your posts and blogs: you're informed, not just opinionated; something I'd like more people to be and I strive to do. Either way--if you have or have not watched the video--you would come to the conclusion that UnculturedProject may support the use of foreign aid, and your non-support of the UnculturedProject and foreign aid is perfectly acceptable and understandable. Again, I just really hate the idea of forming an opinion on something without attempting to look at it (if that makes sense, I'm not really good with words right now; I'll put it in a more direct way: have you watched the video and come to the conclusion that it's about foreign aid/includes the idea of foreign aid, or did you just assume that that is what it talks about/includes? It's the latter I can't stand).
Blah blah blah, wow, in my head, it took a lot less words to get my thoughts across. Sorry for the obnoxiously long post.
You sent me an e-mail in response to the mass e-mail I sent out concerning the UncultureProject.
My computers fucking up, and I can't even access the Ning e-mail (I got a notification in my regular e-mail that I got a Ning e-mail from you). I hate not responding to people, so I was just wondering what your question/comment/whatever your e-mail about was?
I'm quite happy that someone else is seeing my reasoning on that water issue. I've been feeling as if I've gone mad lately, because I can hardly find a person on this website that will agree or even seem to understand what it is that I'm saying. So thanks!
