44th Birthday and what I did this weekend

A Year older indeed, I turned 44 yesterday, and for my 3 day birthday weekend the family and I took off down to Utah Lake. Which was quite fun, had campfire smores, drove out to camp Floyd to check out the old army installation and check on some of the history Utah has to offer. We discovered a Pony Express marker, which was the 82nd marker for the pony express route back in the late 1800’s.

We even were able to visit the Camp Floyd commissary which remarkably had very little trouble being restored; even the flooring is original to the facility as well. I’m showing here an overview of the installation back then, there is even a 3d render of the camp as well they you so when you walk out to the cemetery you can picture what it might have been like back then. It was indeed quite an adventure, minus the mosquito’s bites me and girls got on Friday night after a day at seven peaks Water Park. Yesterday enjoyed dinner at salsa leedo’s and we watched vampires suck the twilight spoof, opinion? Spend the 1$ when it gets to redbox and even then personally I feel like I’d been robbed. Parents got me a very chic watch for work and such, a nice watch not some swatch from walmart, but a very chic watch maker. Will edit and update once I am at home.

The end of the weekend and the beginning of the week. Got home after work cleaned up the office upstairs for a bit, waited till bruce was done with the session he had today at the studio. At 2:14 am I gave up went to bed to get some sleep, but did get the floor and desk cleaned off. Woke up at about 7:30 am dressed woke the kids up, headed to store to run some errands. Got home played some TF2 and did some laundry, left the kitchen alone to see if the kids would help out w/o me asking for them to do so.

Wasted effort there, but did take the kids shopping with me, store had free red hots and buns for the kids this afternoon and come to find out the store will have ice cream once my wife gets home. Give them some fun time as well. I’m currently at work fixing issues dealing with outages, but got a few sales got some cool swag from HBO like a Canteen from “The Pacific” series, a “Weeds” Paddle Ball Set from Showtime and a Spiffy beige Collared Shirt with the company logo on it. 10 bucks worth of Starbuck Gift cards.

15 minutes till I leave for home, and clean the office a bit more and get the floor ready for a good a shampoo and steaming. Hopefully we’ll have a demo clip of the current buildings and vehicle or two in game just to see how they look in game. Wrapping up and heading home in 12 minutes.

Extreme Ghostbusters Ext. History

Egon Spengler
DOB: September 17, 1969
Height: 6’5″
Weight: 218 lbs.
Hair: Blonde
Eyes: Hazel

Egon Spengler is a genius. He got his first degree at the same age his contemporaries were leaving grade school. Professor Egon Spengler is a tall, laconic, possibly or slightly awkward member of the original GB team and responsible for most of theoretical framework for the paranormal/quantum events they have a knack to encounter. Being a man of science, he is the creator of the Ghostbusters’ equipment along with Doctor Raymond Stantz, making him the database of the Ghostbusters team. Although brilliant, Professor Spengler doesn’t have much social ability (as demonstrated in his interactions with the Ghostbusters’ secretary Janine Melnitz), and generally needed Peter to do the talking for the group, to dumb down it for others. He’s proficient in ancient languages, including Sumerian and the esoteric script that dates at the same time the tomes that predict ragnarok and the end of times.

Spengler is the most serious and straight-forward member of the team. Of his hobbies, he states that he collects “spores, molds, and fungus”, and claims that, as a child, the only toy he ever had was “part of a Slinky”, which he straightened out. As implied in the first movie, Spengler apparently is a sugar junkie, due to his affection for sweets and candy (such as Twinkies and Nestle Crunch bars). He also once attempted self-trepanation, but was stopped by Peter Venkman. As Venkman told Spengler “This reminds me of the time you tried to drill a hole in your head,” to which Spengler replied, “That would have worked if you hadn’t stopped me.”

Background: Family History among Spengler males to repress their emotions and focus on everything in a dethatched, scientific manner. This explains why he tends not to be reciprocal to Janine’s affections for the most past. But he HAS shown signs that she has taken some claim to his heart. Faint displays of jealousy, disappointment, relief, remorse and even mild pleasure have been displayed by him in matters regarding her. He even admits to her in the comic that he isn’t very good at dealing with people he cares about. Egon even said words to the effect that he would not be adverse to the idea of a kiss from her when he got back. Professor Spengler is also known to know two other languages, Sumerian and Sign Language.

Profession: Professor, Scientist and Ghostbusters, Egon after being in solitude for 8 years after the vigo incident he was found maintaining the Firehouse along keeping Slimer there as well for “scientific reasons”. It was in March 17th 2003 that a modified P.K.E. Radius Alert started going off in the firehouse, Slimer alerted this to Egon who was at NYU expanding and teaching students on spirits and the paranormal. Egon after getting the meter went to the site of activity and no one believed him about the tunnel. After tons of calls Egon decided it would be best to reopen the Ghostbusters. His role was of a mentor for the new team of Ghostbusters. For the most part, he usually leaves the field work to the new members, opting to provide audio back-up from the firehouse and information on their current adversary. He would still take to the field on some missions, but express frustration that he was no longer as agile or quick as when he was younger, and being very conscious of his age 39.

Known Relatives: Uncle Cyrus Spengler who runs Spengler Labs back in Ohio. Information is limited at best on the Spengler Family tree, with public access.
Nationality American, family does come from the great isles of Britannia, where the male Spenglers have been rumored to have been wizards and warlocks. All of which is hearsay and Dr. Spengler would agree with you 100%

UDK Progress update

Hey everyone how we doing today? Good, Good, We been busy, quite busy in fact on getting the city ported over to UDK. Which we have actually done, this morning at 1:43 AM MDT we officially were able to view the City in a decent sky dome & here was the humorous part. We found the 2 firebees & Spinner Metro Patrol car; Bruce opened up Maya and was able to export them out of the mesh building itself as to keep the building from messing up on future port over. The tough job will be cleaning up the meshes and re-optimizing them and in some cases totally rebuilding them from scratch and those might be the ones we will have the floor levels and actual lobbies and working elevator lifts and stairwells.

Update on progress report

Now I will tell you the big surprise, Jade Phoenix Studio’s Own Sonicist and myself are proud to announce to the UT2004 Community and the BGC 2033 OVA Fan base that we are ½ way thru the development and release of The Judicial Japanese A.D. Police Duo of Leon McNichol and Daley Wong Voomer Cybercrime Division Detectives to compliment the Knight Saber UT2004 Model Pack. Bruce and I will be doing the dialog since I really doubt Brad Moranz & Marshall Carroll would want to do the voice acting pro bono. Lulz. Although, it would have been cool to have that as an option though, so remember to stay tuned here for updates and progress pictures like this one here!
