Posted by wars128 on May 22, 2007

I apologize for not getting a show out sooner. Although its summertime, I don’t feel like im off. With job searching, driving, and a lot of things around the house, I don’t have much time to do anything that I want to do, really. I’ll try to get a show out as soon as possible.

Still alot of Battletech out on the web

Posted by wars128 on May 11, 2007

I just did a search for Battletech, and I came up with nearly 2 Million hits! Thats alot more than I remembered, back in the days when I was in middle school, first exploring the internet to search for Battletech. Back then, I only remember it being maybe 300,00 or so pages, but perhaps my memory isn’t very good, but this number is much greater than I thought it would be. Very interesting…Too bad a lot of the sites, at least the ones I have bookmarked, have not been updated in years…Maybe we will see a resurgance of Battletech fan sites eventually.

Trip

Posted by wars128 on May 10, 2007

The trip went pretty well. went down to Oxford, Mississippi, Home of William Faulkner. I haven’t read any of his works, but I have heard of him. We moseyed on along to a few other towns in Mississippi,stayed the night in a town, before coming back home. I apologize fr not getting the show out, but over the trip I did get to read a bit more of the Handbook: House Davion, and its not as bad as I thought it was initially. it is written by a different person, not Herbert Beas, or however you spell his name, who has done both of the other two. So thats one reason I may have initially disliked the book. Another reason might be is that since I’ve already read 2 Handbooks before this, the layout is kind of getting boring maybe. Or who knows…The new vehicle designs in the backs of these books have normally been good, but in this one only one of the three is too my liking. Maybe thats because I am not really a fan of very lightly armored and slow light support vehicles..Still a good buy for those of you who are into the Fed Suns, a history buff, or someone just interested in learning about all the various star empires. I can’t wait to see all of these Handbooks! The Periphery one should be very interesting.. I will do another review of the book once I finish reading the entire thing.

I would like to add more Battletech links to the Links page, so if you know of/run a Battletech related website that you want to be listed on the links page, then either send me an email to mecheadpodcast@yahoo.com, or post a comment to the links page. And to those of you wondering how I did on my English paper about Battletech; I was unable to retrieve the paper from the teacher at the given time, but based on the fact that it was 20% of my final grade, and that I normally do fairly bad on long papers, that I probably got a C.

Till next post,
Sam

Just one more day!

Posted by wars128 on May 2, 2007

Tommorow, after I finish my very annoyingly early 8 A.M. math exam, and get all my stuff out of my drom room, I will be a free man…sorta…I am having to get a job over the summer, but I am looking forward to it in a way, because if the university dosen’t make me pay for something that I didnt do.. I should have some money, and heres what i’d like to do with it:
1. Get a domain name, like mechhead.com, or mechheadpodcast.com,depends on how much money I make…
2. Get the pay service on my podcasting account, because if I don’t soon, I will have to take off some of the oldest shows out of the feed to make space for the newer stuff. but, again, that in itself is still 10 bucks a month, and who knows how much a domain name will cost.
3. Get some more sourcebooks/TROs, and yet again, this depends on how much I make.
I am also going to hopefully get all my book ideas written over the summer,still do the show once a week, maybe even more, depends on what happens, etc.
As always, any comments, suggestions, and feedback are greatly appreciated.
