I know some of you clicking on this email are hoping that I’m here to tell you about Sins of a Solar Empire II.  I hope to be able to talk more about Sins of a Solar Empire more in the near future but today I wanted to make sure you know that we’re releasing a new RTS today that I think you might like: Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation.

In many respects, it’s Sins of a Solar Empire on the surface of a planet.

If you already know you want it, get it here: http://...
If you are like me you are probably the guy that people call for help on their computer.  Recently, I discovered the Intel Device Advisor.

It’s as brilliant in its concept as it is straight-forward in its implementation.

Here’s how it works:

You download it and run it.  It stays in the background for a long while (as in, days).  It then reports to you, based on your uses, things you might need and where you can get them.  This is something Windows should,...

Just some pretties for people who visit my home page…

Back in 2012, Stardock released Elemental: Fallen Enchantress.  It was the sequel to 2010’s Elemental: War of Magic.  War of Magic was an ambitious game but had a very rough launch due to its brand-new engine just not being able to handle the game.  We released a series of updates to address those problems but ultimately, we felt we needed to reward those who had bought into the early access.

With the launch of Fallen Enchantress, I sent out an email to all those who had boug...
So my son was engaged,  in October of 15. He proposed to her at the local pizza place,  he had them spell out "will you marry me?"  in green peppers!  The ring was placed in a box,  on top of the tray of garlic bread...

She was all happy,  showing one and all her ring.

October of 2016 my son was married to her.  Just her step-dad and 2 sisters on her side,  me,  my older sister,  and my oldest niece attended the wedding.

Because of ...

I'm currently in a motel room in Buffalo, NY. I delivered some snow removal stuff for a trade show. I arrived in Buffalo on Wednesday and sat in the marshaling yard until Friday evening when I finally got unloaded and then checked into the motel.

I'll be hanging out here until Wednesday when I reload and take the stuff back where I got it. Fun, fun.

Life has been, well, life. People come, people go. Good people die, bad people live on. 

These days I'm just doing my job....

I knew it had been a long while since I had posted here but I didn't realize it has been about 4yrs!  I have been living via cell phone during that time so popping on FB and Twitter has filled my social media time.  I recently went back to work at our office building so I'm back on the computer!

I keep up with some of my old JU buddies on FB.  I don't know if anyone who is on here these days even knows me.  I intend to start blogging again because I miss writin...


PHC Frigates To enforce the PHC charter, several prominent Post-Humans formed the “PHC Weapons consortium” in which they pooled their collective ideas into producing weaponized constructs.

The first results from this cooperative effort came in the form of what the PHC now classifies as “frigates”.

These early militarized constructs lack both the lethality and refinement of their more advanced cousins now classified as “Cruisers”.

For the first two years ...

This year marks the 25th anniversary of our spectacular product, Ozone-away.

My baby brother died of cancer on Saturday. He was a good man.


The terrain in Ashes of the Singularity is procedurally generated. This opens the door to randomly generated maps in the future despite being so large and so detailed.

The 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe , not get a absolute redesign from the 2010 `fluidic sculpture’. The only difference will include just some visual refresh on its design. The new cover will have a couple of ridges running from the grilles to the A-pillars.  There will also be sculptured bars fitted on the grillesimilar to the Sonata.  The  look of the car  makes the car look like the Tucson.

Nonetheless, the new changes of the car are nether the car cover. The features have...

I'm not sure which is more disgusting. The things that Sarah Nyberg allegedly did (i.e. being a pedophile) or the uncritical defense she's getting from SJWs despite the evidence being overwhelming.

These are the same SJWs that spent years posting in comment threads on every article that covered one of our games insisting I was a "sexual harasser" or worse based on obviously false and disproven allegations by a disgruntled former employee who later had to apologize.

They exemplify "there ...
If you’re not familiar with Galactic Civilizations then you are in for a treat this May when Galactic Civilizations III ships.  GalCiv is the ultimate sandbox game. The universe is your domain and you are in charge of a fledgling interstellar civilization.

In order for the galaxy to be immersive, the computer opponents need to be interesting, challenging and intelligent and do so without having to rely on cheating.  You can play multiplayer but we don’t want to have to rely on th...
In order to preserve a more perfect record of the terrible, terrible things I say on a regular basis I am going to post them here, in writing. 

A note for children who may read this:

Grownups have jobs. They spend a lot of time at those jobs and over time they become friends with the people they work with. As a result, they may say things to one another with humor. This is called banter.  Banter is humorous discussion shared between friends that when taken out of context can...
