Yeh, my friend does let’s plays on Facebook, so here’s one of the few times you’ll ever catch me referring anyone to social media. Savor it, and click the link because I told you to.
Indeed, it is time for a Space Engine journal series, because Space Engine is beyond epicsauce. This one will be a bit different, though, as it will focus quite heavily on screenshots of cool things, because finding an infinite amount of cool things in a might-as-well-be infinite universe is what Space Engine (and hopefully someday our lives) is all about.
To make up for my time gone, I’ve been up until 3:40 in the morning working on organizing the blog.
First up, I’ve organized the categories and gotten rid of identical ones, and changed the capitalization on some to make them upper case. I’ve also added a few new categories. I will begin applying them to older articles tomorrow.

I recently found an amazing piece of tech, which is giving me quite a bit of fun, called Space Engine. It essentially simulates an entire universe, using real data where it can, and procedurally generating content everywhere else.

A year ago I had found Ender’s Game in a used book shop. So I bought it.
I didn’t start reading it, however, until a few days ago, and I thought I should read the original before I went and saw the movie.
Ender’s game is about the story of a kid who plays Sins of a Solar Empire and Laser Tag, so for me it’s a story I can really relate to.
