Forgot to announce that my birthday is right around the corner. This time, it's my 40th. To think, I've been a part of this wacky fandom since 1998, back when I first discovered there was a fandom. I...
It's the first of March somewhere. As is my custom, I mention my birthday about a month in advance, because otherwise it gets lost in the noise of bullshit jokes that happen on April 1st. Why yes, it...
Hey, folks. Several ages ago, probably around the sunset of Windows Vista and into the start of the heyday that would herald the presence of Windows 7, Pixologic hired on the developer of this piece o...
Hi. I'm Xial. I am not a visually inclined artist. I do like to do color work whenever I have the muse for it. Some of it goes here. Some of it goes elsewhere. My art lies in the realm of the keyboard, if my fickle muse allows it.

I don't mind conversation about technical things, but please don't ask me to help you build a computer. While I'm technically capable of it, and can usually find really decent pricing, I find it tedious to pull together a machine idea for someone for free, only to be second-guessed by someone else.
Speaking of conversation, there's one thing I ask that you respect: If my messenger is set to away, or I've launched a game, please let me play in peace? I like you all, but waiting until I launch a game to suddenly spit messages at me is upsetting. Thank you. :)
