Pictures, Blogger, and Memory
I've been held up this past week by lack of storage space, since I've used up the gig Blogger gives you free of charge. A gig is a bunch of pics but Strictly Average has always been a media-heavy blog.
There's a tip for you budding Bloggers out there: give your audience something to look at! As time has gone on, I've moved from free-hand Cybershot pictures to using a light studio setup.
I've struggled over what to do. After all, if I delete pictures from the Picasso web albums, where all Blogger pictures are stored, it affects old posts. If I'm being honest, nobody looks over those old posts - meaning it isn't an immediate problem. Still, I intend to archive the better stuff at some point in the future and I don't want to make it harder on myself when the time comes.
Rob wrote a great post on the subject over on Warhammer 39999. Ultimately, I ended up spending the 5 bucks to get 20 more gigs. Blogging is a big part of my hobby these days, so it's worth it.
Store Your Toys!
Little Barerra, a buddy of mine in the local area, has a habit which drives me freakin' bonkers - he's absolutely gifted, a true artist. He just doesn't take care of his toys.
He's got the GW cases, but he'll recycle them when he's working on a new army, throwing all the minis he's painted in a box. Inevitably they get banged up, so he'll strip them and repaint them. Lather, rinse repeat.
Bottom line is properly store your stuff. You guys will spend hundreds on models but begrudge fifty on a case - admit it! Get the case.
Shiner Bock is the Best Beer
Frequent events where adult beverages are sold. Everybody will be happier for it.
Yea, two beers are better than one! (It was for my Indentured Servant.)
Do I have to say it? Don't drink and drive. Don't over drink. I work in mental health; trust me, you don't want to be that person.

This article is getting stranger and stranger. I probably shouldn't write posts after midnight.
I think we've done enough damage here. I'm off to bed now...
