As there's been a lack of community for Bronies in Santa Cruz County, other than the Bronies of Northern California Meetup group, I thought it would be nice to start one. So I got a Google page and Skype group going, and we'll see how much interest there is!

Men seek friendship all their lives, yet few ever truly find it. -websterhamster, February 9th, 2014
What is the true measure of a man or woman? What is it we desire most in our mortal lives?
I believe most of us seek the companionship of others above all else. Think about it: in high school, unless you were a member of the social minority (like I was), the "popularity" of your fellow students was very likely foremost in your mind. Or perhaps you felt left out and forgotten, because you perceived yourself as less worthy of attention because some kids got more than they deserved.
And as adults, we find that unless we're completely insensitive buffoons, we care very much about how others think of us. I personally find myself emotionally scarred after very little negative comment (even if it's only I who recognize it as negative), which is possibly due to the amount of bullying I was subjected to as a child and young teenager.
I guess the thesis of this is, the world would be greatly enriched if each one of us was kindly and friendly to a new person every day. Think less about yourself, and more about your fellow man. This is what Jesus meant when he said, "For whosoever will save his life, must be willing to lose it for my sake; and whosoever will be willing to lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it." (Luke 9:24) We must put aside our own worries, needs, and desires, at least temporarily, in order to aid and lift up the people around us.

First, the computer update.
As you will be aware from my previous post, my computer died, so I'm building a new one. Step one in Project New Computer (#NewComputer) was to purchase a suitable case to house the new hardware I'l be acquiring.
The case I settled on was the Raidmax Agusta, Black/White version. It's full ATX tower, and will have plenty of room for a cooling system and large graphics card (should I end up getting a large graphics card). It has
Well, it finally happened. My desktop, which I've had for three years now, and existed long before that, finally died. I've been strongly considering an attempt at building a new one, and now that the old one has left us, it's a priority.
As a result of this development, The Evening Breeze is postponed until further notice. You can follow me and the Evening Breeze on Twitter for updates, @websterhamster and @AvonSuth. Also, subscribe to the Machine here and follow the Evening Breeze on Facebook.
I'm going to be fundraising to help boost the speed at which I can finish the build. I'll be cutting costs where I can, so I plan on building on an AMD CPU to get more power at a lower price. The first step will be a new motherboard.

It's New Year's Eve here, and already 2014 in some places. Many people are thinking about their "New Year's Resolutions", which typically is a list of things they would like to accomplish in the coming year.
Popular items on this list are to lose weight, stop smoking, or spend more time with family.
Personally, I've never bought it.
I want to wish anyone who reads this a most amazing and joyful Christmas! And, I'll even say it in Dovahzul: Loraan Qelekaanvelaaz, which translates to Merry Anointed-Feast, because annointed is the translation of Christs name. Or, we could be more specific and say, Loraan Christ-Velaaz, Merry Christ-Feast!
Nerdiness aside, wherever you are, whatever you may be doing, whether you're rich or poor, please have a wonderful Christmas!
Fah Moro do Rah,
I just thought I'd share what the Evening Breeze studio and my personal gaming desk looks like right now.
My setup is an Audio-Technica ATR2100 plugged into a Behringer Xenyx302USB interface, while running Mixxx on my Windows XP desktop (yes, I know XP is ancient, but it works!).
I've seen a lot of comments on Google+ regarding the apparently notorious inaccuracy and incompetence of Imperial Stormtroopers in the Star Wars universe. I'm not entirely sure where this notion first appeared, but I believe it may have come from video games, such as the Jedi Knight franchise.
It's that time of year again. Yes, right after a holiday designed for us to reflect on our gratitude, we immediately begin greedily wishing for things we don't have! So, in the spirit of the holidays, here's what I would like for Christmas.
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, the traditional American holiday where families gather to feast and consider the blessings they have to be grateful for. Showing gratitude can lift your spirits, and when you realize how blessed you are, you'll find that many complaints your have about your life will seem less important.
