As you may have noticed, I haven’t been on a regular blogging schedule here on MtDewVirus. I didn’t feel all that great a few days this week and ended up taking 1.5 sick days. That doesn’t really have anything to do with my lack of blogging though. I’m not quite sure what it is. I keep asking my self what is and isn’t “blogworthy.”

I also think I’ve been going through a weird time in my life. To use a poker term…I feel “stuck” in more than one way. What exactly does that mean? Well, I don’t feel like I’m going anywhere right now. Sometimes I wonder if I’ll ever get out of here. I haven’t had the motivation to do much of anything lately. I’m just going through the motions of life at times. I ask myself what I want and I don’t have a concrete answer. I do know that I want something different than this, whatever this is. You’re probably as confused as I am now.

In other news, I’ve had some exciting things going on over at Poker Chip Tricks and the traffic has sky-rocketed since Christmas. I recently took 10 whole days off from poker. I didn’t play online at all during that time. I was struggling with my game and needed a break and to do some reading. I read two books and I’m glad to say that I found my game again.

I also haven’t been playing Xbox. I jumped on the other day and played Halo 2 for the first time in probably two weeks or more. I talked to my brother the other day and he was yelling at me, asking when I was going to play again. Let me tell you, 2 weeks away from playing Halo 2 online and I’m rusty! I was to the point where I was dominating other players at my skill level and when I played the other day I was struggling to stay in the middle of the pack.

That’s all for now…

Read Feeds

Do you use a feed reader/service to keep track of blogs that you read? Currently I just jump on my sites and check the link list to see which sites have recently updated…pretty dumb way of doing it. I know there are countless sites out there that will store your blogroll and let you see which ones have updated recently. I want to know which are the best, so speak up…



It was a year ago today that I made my first post here using WordPress. I want to give a special thanks to Matt who suggested the little known project of WP to me when I asked him about his web site. Also big thanks to the other main developers and contributors that make WP possible. I still remember installing version .7x. It didn’t have multiple categories, plugins…in fact, I can’t even really remember what it did have so much has changed since then. All I know it’s a great piece of software.

Thanks to all the readers who stop by to read my words and thanks to those that voice their opinions and make this enjoyable to do.

Here’s to many more years…
