Directions to Little Creathorne Farm:
Grafton, NH

For GPS: 702 main St. Grafton, NH

From the Southeast (middle and southern NH, and anywhere in MA east of
Springfield):
you will want to take route 93 North through NH. From MA or CT you
can get to route 93 from routes 495, 3, and 95(128). Take route 93
North through Nashua, Manchester, and Concord.
If you are coming from the Northeast, you want to take 93 South.

Get off at exit 17, just North of Concord. This should put you on
route #4. Take route 4 West. Route 4 runs concurrent with routes 3 and
11 off and on during this trip, so make sure you stick with the right
route! You should pass through several small towns, including
Boscawen, Andover, Franklin, and Danbury. It take about 30 minutes to
get from route 93 to Grafton (it?s about 30.5 miles to the border).
Creathorne is 3.5 miles from the Grafton/Danbury town line, on the
right. There is a white sign that says ?Little Creathorne Farm? in
plain sight. The farm house is a white color.
Pull in through the gate in the wooden fence (NOT the driveway) and
park in the area defined by the logs, on either side of the small hill
right there. I will have Creathorne, Black and gray shields near the
road in the day light, and torches burning at the gate at night, so
this site is usually very easy to find.

From the Northwest, VT, NY, or anywhere West of Springfield, MA:
you?ll want to come into Grafton from the other direction. Take route
91 (which runs up the NH/VT border) to 89S into Lebanon, NH. You?ll be
getting off, at exit 17. This should put you on route 4. Take route 4
East, passing through Enfield and Canaan, and into Grafton. It takes
about 35 minutes to get from route 89 to Grafton (it?s about 20 miles
to the border). Creathorne is about 10-15 minutes from Canaan center,
on the left.

Dear Blizzard / Activision

Dear Blizzard and Activision,

I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for giving me Diablo III for free with my promise to not shut off my WOW account.

I do have a serious question though. Why do you insist on a game like this requiring a connection to the Battle.net servers? Diablo I and II were great games. This is a pretty great game. Really If I wanted another MMO I would turn my swtor account back on.

I think that its fantastic if you want to make some features unavailable if you do not have an internet connection, but I want my game to work where ever I am regardless of the quality of my internet connection, or the status of your servers.

Thanks,
   tmib

TV Shows cancelled in 2012

Television Shows cancelled in 2012

Here is a list of all the shows that I’ve either followed or watched in the last few years or so that have recently been cancelled.

          Alcatraz (FOX)
Are You There Chelsea? (NBC)
Awake (NBC)
Charlie’s Angels (ABC)
          Chuck (NBC)
CSI:Miami (CBS)
The Closer (TNT)
Eureka (Syfy)

At the top of my list of “I’ve sorry to see them go” are The Finder, Alcatraz, and Terra Nova. It seems that the only show FOX has worth watching anymore is Fringe and as previously mentioned even that is only being renewed for a half season next year.

Blogger.com: How to center header image and header text

So a while back blogger.com moved to their new format. I of course migrated the Elder Tribunal to the new version. I spent some time trying to figure out how to center the header image and header text. The text was easy to do. The image was easy to do in IE, but didn’t want to work in Firefox and Chrome. So I set it back to left justified and decided to wait until I had more time to play with it.

Today I sat down and in about 5 minutes figured out how to do both. So here it is for everyone else:

1. Log into Blogger.com.
1.a. If you have more then one blog click on the one that you want to edit by clicking on the title.
2. Click on the “Template” menu item on the left.
3. Under the image of tyour blob click on the “Customize” button.
4. in the header menu on the left click on “Advanced”.
5. Directly to the right of where you just clicked use the scroll bar to go to the bottom, and click on “Add CSS”.
6. In the new text area to the right enter the following code:

#header
{
text-align:center;
}
#header-inner img {
margin-left: auto;
margin-right: auto;
}

7. Click “Apply to Blog” in the upper right.

To do list

Recently my TODO list has been getting out of control. This is perhaps partially due to work situations [like my boss being out on vacation last week, and in the hospital the week before], but I finally got a few things accomplished. Here are some of the things that I got done recently:

    [X] Create new version of maps.realmsboard.net
    [X] Invite EH’s to preview both
    [X] Register a new domain name blackwolfgaming.com and .info
    [X] registrar transfer ishnr.org and nhrdwidowers.org.
    [X] Disassemble my office for Seamus to move into
