- Something Cool I've Done: Went to BattleBots TI2 competition in November '01 in San Francisco. This is the competition that was taped for Comedy Centrals BattleBots Season 4.0. Of course, I never thought I could top that one until May 2002 (5.0). I went to BattleBots and had the privilege of being on a team and got to be in the pits and hang out with the builders and see the bots up close. It was an amazing experience. I can't ever thank Lowell enough for his kindness. He is such an awesome person.
Other Random Notes:
I started working on Mystic Fortress in late 1995. I began the project with no goal or plan in mind. I just wanted to build something and learn how it all worked (as you can see, my older stuff is pretty bad).
I did not expect this website to pull in any visitors, but to my surprise it has and for that I'm grateful. In the beginning I got maybe 20 hits a month. Now I get thousands of hits a day, many times over 50,000 uniques a month. Sections of this site have been published in a variety of magazines and newspapers online and in print (someday I'll post the list). I've met lots of nice folks through the site as well. It's been a great experience. While I'm not able to update the site as often as I used to, I appreciate all of the emails from many loyal visitors and friends. It's moving to know I've reached that many people.
