    Stayed up way too late on the game, but I did it to get at least one of each class to 60. This process would have taken days on PC, unless I undertook multiboxing, and it only took a few hours to do on PS3. A waste of time either way is an opinion to have, but now that I've done this I can return the Cain's armor to my friends and not need to undertake that task ever again.

    For something to watch with dinner my wife put on the Doctor Who episode of The Christmas Invasion, which was ...

    It seems that I didn't hit the post button properly for this entry, which I guess might be just as well because I probably would have forgotten about the end of the month glitch this does with predating a post. This time, though, there wasn't even a post in limbo so I'm not sure what I did wrong. I didn't even have anything to drink at this point. Weird. Oh well.

    2013 concludes with me sitting here in the basement writing this as my wife sleeps upstairs, as she was too tired to stay ...

    The discipline I currently lack is that I willingly let myself sleep in on days where I know I'll have something to do after waking up, or at least not prioritizing things properly so that I can assuredly get my exercise done immediately and then get on with the rest of my day. Today's example is that I was up until 4AM with friends on D3, then was woken up at 11AM so that my wife and I could attend a showing of the second Hobbit movie. After doing that and spending the rest of the day so far on ...

    Short session today, had things to do and company to meet now.

    I figured I might as well cut it short before things take a turn for the worst after my play of New York. Squandering the small increases by failing Horizon and Broken My Heart didn't help matters.

    I have become a recipient of a major set of gear in PS3 D3. My crit rate is still relatively low, but considering that I've received what I have mostly from donations and that I've still played the game for a grand total of a week, I think I'm extremely fortunate to be where I currently stand. Now, the question is how much farther can I push things.

    The weather was actually rather nice today, so when I was summoned to assist with getting some carts corralled, I didn't hesitate to ...

    It's 950AM and I set the coffee machine up in the breakroom to make a new pot while I walk to the front of the store and see my wife off to lunch. I manage to catch her just before she leaves, then return to the breakroom to have my coffee. When I get back, I hear two women inside complaining about how strong the coffee is, with one concluding in saying that there's just some people out there who like it so strong. I guess I need to tone it down a bit.

    In other work news, the hour ...

    We watched the Doctor Who end of 11 Christmas special and neither me or my wife were particularly impressed with much of any of it. The single word which she used to describe the episode, and I have to agree with, is "lame". It's rather odd how the 50th Anniversary episode was something we felt was rather good, only for this episode to be subsequently aired.

    I've had Diablo 3 on PS3 for six days. As of last night, my Wizard has already reached 60 and a few paragon levels, ...

    New speakers are set up and function very well. Finally, we can view and play stuff on that TV at a reasonable volume without having it crackle and pop like breakfast cereal.

    The D3 binge continues. It should be over once my one friend is back in school.

    Songs were rather good today, yet again thankfully. What's interesting is that 隠蓑之坊 is the only song which I passed. Everything else was pain. That's a good thing, at least while I don't ...

    Christmas Eve family gathering has come and gone, about as expected.

    Time to get more D3 in.

    Songs. I had a few shots of Rumple Minze a few hours before play, so perhaps that affected my ability to time any of the charts with lighter note counts. That or I just decided to have a lack of focus on easier charts today. Whatever. Perhaps it's more interesting that I did seem to step my play up the most on the busiest songs that came up today.

    Time to meet up with my friend on the game. Christmas vacation has come just in time.

    Songs were excellent today, presumably because I had an overriding pressure to be done with them in a timely manner. Many of the increases came with strong openings then holding steady in comparison to the previous record for the rest of the song.

    Still no response from the IRS, not even an automated receipt response. I need to resume work on the other remaining returns and hope that the #4 scenario that I'm having an issue with remains the only one that has a problem which needs assistance.

    Songs were overall excellent today. It's rather strange that if I had simply elected to not play Rest My Mind, the worst score I would have had was with Shox at nearly -4% off of record. How I got -11% on that play is mostly inexplicable, ...

    It's 11PM again? How does this happen.

    Today's free time discovery that I have made is that following the Scooter Brother around in GTA5 doesn't eventually lead to anything happening. Also, police cars apparently know if you fire a stun gun at them.

    To answer the initial question, and since I'll probably have a need to discuss it extensively at some point in the future so I'll just put this out here now - I have purchased PS3 Diablo 3 and my wife and I are currently ...

    I seem to be stopped dead in my tracks of progressing through the Form 1040 tests. Test Scenario 4 requires the filing of the new Form 8960, and the tax is then reported on Line 60 of Form 1040. Doing this requires a few lines of information to tell the parser that the documents are there and to look for this certain additional tax value. Long story short and code abstracts cut, it would appear that I have everything in its proper place and amount, yet I'm receiving an error that it is wrong. I ...

    One day of full work on tax testing leaves me having to make adjustments to four of the twelve returns as of the time that I'm writing this. That's pretty good progress in my opinion. Issues that have come up have been relatively few and easy to fix. One interesting change for this year is that an "alert", as opposed to an "error", is given if a return is submitted with an EIC entry and without a Form 8867 attached to it. Form 8867 is the Paid Preparer's Checklist for EIC compliance ...

    I was able to get all Christmas shopping finalized in rapid order yesterday. I'm glad for that.

    I spent the rest of yesterday and some of today spending time trying to get my streaming going as well as watch another IIDX player on his channel. Long story short, I couldn't get my stream to function properly. Messing around with settings on the separate machine led to nothing usable, and using the broadcasting software on the same machine which I use to play the game.
