The Shadownode



Dungeons and Dragons



:: June 10, 2008 :: Just testing things out
I wanted to make sure this was working before I spent gobs of time on it.

:: August 25, 2005 :: Testing
Test post, ignore me.

:: May 10, 2005 :: Upcoming Vacation
I can't tell anybody how excited I am to leave town for a few days. Sure it's just a short trip to the North Shore, but getting away from the office, and well...The office, is a welcome aspect to look forward to. Now if I can just survive to Thursday.

Tonight we're heading out with Rob, my old college roommate for 3 out of 4 years. He's potentially moving back to the Twin Cities (well not the Twin Cities per say, but Cambridge) and he's stopping in to say hello. Getting to see Rob = Good, having to go to Maple Grove to do so = Bad.

:: April 19, 2005 :: An Update? No, it can't be.
So I've been thinking.

It's been a long time since I've even had the time to put together an update to one of the specialized sections on this website (Shadowrun or D&D). Someday I'll get my act together and I'll put more there, but for now I'm going to have to just admit to myself that it's just in permanent a "under construction" state. It's not due to a lack of trying, there are only so many hours in a day and just so many things you want to do.


That doesn't mean I can't start using my webpage more than I do. So here we go, what is hopefully the first post of many.

:: July 07, 2004 :: Been awhile
Yes, I know that it's been awhile. I had a major computer meltdown that stymied my ability to do anything with this site. Long story short, a few blown capacitors later, I needed a new motherboard. It's replacement was a month and a half though, so I will have to acknowledge that laziness did have something to do with it.

First I have to get Torvald's Journal up to date. After that I'll start working on new content. Don't panic, things will improve hopefully sooner rather than later.

:: March 08, 2004 :: The Twin Cities Shadownode
My Shadowrun section of the site which was the inspiration of the original Shadownode is getting a small facelift. I'm still working on continuing updates, but for now I'm mainly paying attention to figuring out what needs to be done. So far my vision still includes:

- Updates to the entire Shadowrun section of the site.
- New content in Shadowrun section of the site.
- Actual content in The DungeonNode.
- A personal section dedicated to Myself
- A boardgame catalog, giving a little details on another hobby of mine.
- Fixing problems and broken things (which will probably never go away).

So keep your eyes open, content may change more or less every few days until I grow wary, but until then. Enjoy.

:: March 07, 2004 :: Update to Torvald's Letters
I updated Torvald's letters today with the latest and greatest in his adventures. I've also cleaned up a ton of pages in the Shadowrun section that had absolutely terrible layout problems. Wish I knew about them earlier so I could have passed on the info. Regardless, expect further updates, though I'm not entirely certain what I'm going to update next.
