I'm a Ruby, Python, PHP, and Lua programmer. Most of my projects have been web-based collaboration sites to help my coworkers communicate and trade information more effectively, and lots of one-off utilities to shoehorn data into fussy systems. I'd love nothing more than to fulfill my goal of becoming a teacher (pay be damned!) and I'm working on my degree to do just that.

comment Should I play Gears of War 3 directly instead of going through 1 and 2?
In case you decide to go looking for information using those acronyms, the "Gears of War" series is typically shortened to "Gears", not "GoW", to avoid confusion with the God of War series.

One of the key concepts of the game, I think, is realizing that you can travel through either portal.

comment My dog keeps catching on fire, what should I do?
You could carry a bucket of water for Dog-On-Fire Extinguishing Emergencies, or not have open flames just sitting around, waiting to be walked through.

comment Why won't an NPC go into his house?
Actually, the entrance to an NPC's house can be either a door or wood platforms, according to the wiki. I have at least one NPC in my world which is happily living in a wood platform-entrance house.

Ah yes, the dreaded "canon" rush, where hundreds of historians bore soldiers to death with documentaries.
