Yes, I'm aware this is only my third post in 2011. Oh well. Things on my mind:
On the D&D front, the group I am DMing (Dungeon Mastering) for has made it a little past the halfway point of the fantastic Reavers of Harkenwold adventure from the new Dungeon Master's Kit. It has been a lot of fun so far. Here is a pic of Jason and John plotting their next move:
I am a little nervous about some of the upcoming encounters because they call for making your own battlemaps using dry erase markers or dungeon tiles. I have both but have yet to decide which to use. I like how this adventure ramps up the difficulty for the dungeon master, starting with basic encounters, moving on to more robust encounters involving more monsters, moving on to skill challenges, and finally to creating your own maps. It even gives opportunities to create your own encounters.
Anyways, enough of the geekspeak. In other things, aside from the Ricky Gervais awesomeness, I didn't really care about the Golden Globes since my favorite film of the year, True Grit did not receive any nominations in major categories. I did like The Social Network but I liked True Grit quite a bit more.
The new year brought a couple big changes for me. I have passed the two week mark on quitting smoking and I have also gone two weeks without an iPhone. I have been using a Samsung Captivate and it has been pretty stinking awesome, especially since my roommate Jon helped me root it and install Gingerbread.
That's about it from me. Hope you guys and gals are enjoying a happy MLK day.
I thought there were only beta build of Gingerbread out? And that some functions are unusable, like making phonecalls? Or am I a retard?
Sounds good Brendoman….and I will see you, or at least HEAR you on Saturday at 2ish…riiiiiight? Heh…
Yes, I’ll be there Mike.
Luis - I think it is a dev build, yeah, but it’s totally functional. The ROM I use put out a Gingerbread update a couple weeks ago. Availability probably depends on your phone.
I have the Captivate. I haven’t flashed a ROM yet because I am lazy.
I use Darkys ROM. I haven’t actually done it myself (my roommate helped) but it is a pretty straightforward process. There are lots of tutorials on the XDA Developers forum.
