Poem … about the 1-sample chi-squared test

This is pretty cool!

Out of This Dimension

Five world, say,

And where to find.

Anton, that is.

Where’s he’s one of a kind.

So which one shall we see first?

That is the question Randy must ask.

Hmmm … maybe the fourth one, would you say?

But let us put the 1-sample chi-squared to the task.

How Fallout 4 Sucked me in…

Alright, so computer gaming is technically a waste of time. Look, no matter how you slice it, no matter how amazing the game is, it all comes back to a time sink. Do I care? Absolutely not! Fallout 4 is the newest game in the Fallout Universe. A quick and dirty history: In the year 2077, the world was nuked back to the stone age. Seriously, two hundred years after the war people are still dependent on the ancient technologies if the prewar era. There are prototypes put to use, and (spoiler) there is one group of people who have actually surpassed the prewar tech and continue progressing forward, but aside from that one group even the most technologically advanced groups are using and maintaining the prewar tech. If this sounds interesting to you, I definitely suggest checking out the Fallout games.

So Fallout 4 sucked me in. I’ve spent days in this immersive world, crafting, modding, building. Frankly, it is one of the better games I’ve played. Oh there’s problems. A lot of the dialogue is canned, the game engine needs an overhaul, and in spite of how great the game itself looks the bodies/faces of the people in this game are a little underwhelming. I look forward to the mods, and it’s one reason I prefer the PC over any other system for games like this. I’d love to see either an official or player made expansion, letting you revisit the locations of the earlier games. Seriously, the in game weapon and armor mods are very well done, and if I could not only do this with Fallout 4 but also see the effects of what my character did in Fallout 3/New Vegas/2/1? Oh my god, that would be awesome!

I’m still rambling, but I’ll try to get to the point. If you are interested in shooter games, you’ll enjoy this one. If you are interested in RPG games, you’ll probably enjoy this one. If you like to build stuff, micromanaging your little communities like a freaking boss, this is a great game for you! I’ve been building my own personal mansion, but I’m not at all pleased with the building options I have. Even with the five Picket Fences magazines, I just don’t like the looks. With the player/mod community, however, I know it’s only a matter of time before I can do such things as remove and/or repair the prewar housing and then custom build my own, no doubt awesome, mansion. What? Oh, time to load back into Fallout 4. I’ll see you in Boston, my friends. As Moonie always says, stay golden!

Getting Started

Hello everyone, welcome to my first attempt at blogging. Well, I say first attempt, but to be fair I’ve got a few articles out there on a variety of sites. So what am I going to talk about? That will vary, of course depending on my interests from day to day. Today, I’ve got a single message for all of you, and it’s fairly similar to the first program most programmers learn. Hello world! Although, to be fair, my first program actually said “Game Over!” So well met! Over the course of the next few weeks I’ll start sharing more of my interests. I’ll be happy to hear your feedback as well. So, one more time (and with feeling), hello!
