The Gormogons: Followers à Gogo!

The Gormogons: Followers à Gogo!

What a kind welcome from the Gormogons! They haven't taught me the secret handshake, yet, but here's the "About Us" section of their page:
A secret society dedicated to the restoration of the Kingdom of Poland-Lithuania, the imprisonment of Esperanto speakers, and furthering the eschatological doctrine of the Return from Occultation of the Thirteenth Imam, Val Kilmer.

They're having a good time with a tournament bracket of their posts. My final four picks? Already screwed up in the first round:

Ghettoputer Region: "Canuckistan"
Ecumenical Volgi Region: "Nuclear Effing Power"
GorTechie Region: "Battlestar Galactica, New"
then, ironically, in the Czar of Muscovy Region:
"Dirk Benedict's Gonads"

Sadly, Canuckistan was struck down in the first round. :-(

Go enjoy the site. It smacks of ancient pre-HTML USENET irreverence.

The state's stay-at-home order was never meant to keep you, individually, safe from infection. It was meant to keep hospital's safe from being overwhelmed by too many of us needing them at the same time. In Michigan, the daily new cases of COVID-19 are higher today than they were when we locked down in late March. We are testing whether or not we can open up (with all of our new precautions and protocols) without spiking the rate of spread, but make no mistake: it *is* an experiment, and we *are* the test subjects. Please don't get careless as things start to open up. We need to get our economies back on track, but we are still a long way (and a vaccine away) from being out of the woods. Stay vigilant, folks. Wash your hands. Wear a mask. As has always been the

Forays into Second Life

As the resident gaming geek at the office, I've been asked to look into Second Life and other Virtual Worlds, and help evaluate their potential for our use. They sent me to a conference on Libraries, Education, and Museums in Second Life yesterday. I use a tool called BlogHUD to document my journeys inside Second Life. Check it out here:
