The Weekly Update for Sunday, November 2nd, 2014 - Some Very Major Milestones

Have the Tinaliya been by here, lately?
I'll try to be brief; lots to note today, and I'm pretty happy with all the progress.

First off, The Missus is halfway through her series of doses of hard radiation, and while she's pretty tired out she's doing just fine. The doctors are very happy with her progress, and so am I.

I am very happy to announce that I have now been through the first directory / volume of Phil's computer files; I have look at and sorted out some 12,500 individual files. It's been a real slog, as Phil was not a tidy housekeeper with his files, but it's moving along. I still have three more such directories / volumes to go through, burt I'm doing what I always wanted to do - be Phil's archivist.

I will be merging my own archives with his, over the next month; I have a lot of his materials that he didn't have copies of, and I think I'll wind up with the most complete Tekumel archive around.

Mike Burns' Dark Fable Miniatures will be starting the next 'Ancient Egyptian' Indiegogo today, and I am really looking forward to it. Lots of very cool figures on offer, and very useful for Tekumel! There's a link in the left-hand column for you, too.

EDIT: Here's the direct link; look at all the goodies on offer!!!

I am very happy to be able to announce that the game room and game lounge are now set and ready for action on a permanent basis. I no longer have to 'set' or 'reset' the rooms for game sessions, which will be a huge time- and energy-saver for me. The next milepost, down in the basement, is to get the Skype and Google+ connections working in there, so I can offer on-line gaming from 'the studio' for you.

If I may ask, what would all of you like to see me talk about, here on the blog? This is just as much your blog as it is mine, so let me know what you'd like to hear about. Thanks!!!
