we went to the sherwood forest faire and had a blast. it was outside of austin in mcdade, tx in a nicely wooded forrest like area (ya think?). they did a very good job of being in character and i couldnt help but imagine we were in a real-life everquest. we saw jousting, puppet shows, robin and maid marian, and drank mead. here are some flics.
geek for the win! found a nice app that turns your iPhone into a bluetooth game controller for your computer. came in useful when we were trying out the game castle crashers on steam. you download the free app, install its counterpart on the computer, and sync them up. you can pick and program various controllers like SNES, Genesis, and N64.
