Blogging in a new era
I haven't posted a blog here in quite some time. As the internet marched forward, most of my online activities have spread out to other sites.

I mostly share links and thoughts via Facebook these days. You can follow me there. I post many things as public, in addition to the new friends-only posts I make.

FB has also become the place where I post most of my photos. However, I still maintain a flickr account where I post more artsy photos.

I just transitioned the server this website is being hosted on to a new one. So I thought I would throw this post up here as a marker for that. Hope you're well :)

Coupe Stanley
As everyone knows, the Stanley Cup is awarded on the basis of a failed charitable purpose trust and is in all likelihood legally owned by some British guy descended from Lord Stanley of Preston who doesn't realize it.

Putting aside the fascinating topic of nineteenth century trust law, I just wanted to point out that Brent Rathgerber, a Member of Parliament from Edmonton, described the Stanley Cup as the "trophy du jour of the NHL", because he is a dumbass and doesn't know that there's a difference between "du jour", a French expression meaning "of the day", and "de jure", a Latin expression meaning "in law". Or he thinks he is ordering the soup in law at nice restaurants.

http://brentrathgeber.ca/the-stanley-cup-belongs-to-canadians/

His legal analysis is ridiculous: so the "Canadian people" automatically own anything that has ever belonged to a governor general? Then I would like Adrienne Clarkson's porcelain doll collection, please. If the Stanley Cup trust has failed, then the trust property reverts to Lord Stanley, his heirs and successors.

He also asks "what could be more Canadian" than letting a bunch of drunken beer leaguers play for one of the world's most prestigious sports trophies? If he thinks horrible ideas are typically Canadian, then really he should be running for the Bloc quebecois.

It's horrifying to think that someone who understands so little about the most important things in life, hockey and trust law, has been elected to public office (Although it was an Alberta election -- let's see how he does when they switch to multiparty democracy).

My new computer game Castle Vox
The computer game I've been working on for the past 2 years has just been released. It's called Castle Vox and I encourage you to check it out.

The gameplay is a simultaneous-turn-based strategy model. So you don't have to wait for all the other players to take their turns, you're always taking your turn (except in-between rounds when the battle resolutions happen).

Here's a screenshot of the Napoleonic Wars map:


The full version has 35 maps and counting. The game includes a map editor so you can make your own, or edit the existing ones.

So go play: Castle Vox - Diplomacy game meets Axis & Allies
