Welcome Ryan!

Early this morning my good friend, Ninel, delivered her baby boy, Ryan Matthew (excellent name) at 7 lbs. 14 oz. I’m so incredibly excited for her and her husband Alex. I talked to her around 9:00am and she and Ryan are doing fine. I’m going to go see them all tomorrow at the hospital, as I wasn’t able to get away from the office today.

In a recent fit of rage, I destroyed my iPaq 6315 phone. I hope to be able to get an iPhone in the next couple of months, but right now I’m using an older BlackBerry 7290. The good part of this is that I’ll free up a USB connector on both my home PC and my laptop at the office as I won’t need the cradles anymore.

My editing workstation in the studio decided to start reporting bad clusters on the hard drive last night. I’ve ordered a new 400GB SATA II drive and will be installing it tomorrow. An entire re-format of the machine will then be done. Fun stuff. For the most part, I’ll be completely offline for the next several nights.

In lieu of the above, I have a few items on the Suncoast Studios blotter tonight, all having to do with Jeff’s book. I’ll be working on illustrations, including finishing up the cover, just as soon as I eat dinner. Mmm. Spaghetti.

Keepin’ Busy

I just finished playing Tomb Raider: Anniversary. I recently decided to re-activate my GameTap account and I was surprised to see this game in there. GameTap has begun to add several great games to the service. I started playing Tomb Raider a couple of weeks ago, and decided to just go until it was done.

I’ve been doing a lot of work at the office lately, as we’re in the process of getting ready to move. A lot of my time will be devoted to that. Right now I’m working on the electrical needs of the server room. I hope to have that finished today.

In Suncoast Studios news, I’ve been keeping busy with Jeff’s book and have also been trying to help out Millard from time to time. I’m almost done the cover design for the book, then I have to move on to the interior illustrations. For Millard, I’ve done a little audio work and some rendering for the Dr. Zoltan podcast.

I’m going to spend the rest of the day organizing the studio.
