  1. Steam Trading is now Official

    I was a participant in the Beta that ran last month. Well, it's now official. Steam Trading now lets you trade in game items with other people (Like TF2 hats) right from steam. It also lets people trade copies of games they've purchased as gifts. People can also trade in game items for games, crazy as it sounds.

    You can read more about it over at Rock Paper Shotgun.

  2. Star Trek Barbie: Almost Completed

    I spent two days putting 60 lights in the warp nacelles but just as I finished a short or something else occurred and the lights failed. On two other separate circuits, the lights in the primary and secondary hull remain working.

    The concept is a wild-eyed liberal videoblogger that is also very politically incorrect, crossing lines both left and right.

    I changed the title to Pooched in the Dome and added a background image that sets the crazy political blogger tone.
