Wait … CaptRosha or Gnume?

I listen to several of the Mixer.Pro Partners and one thing I hear a lot about is to think about your “brand”. So, I decided I really needed to do just that. I originally chose CaptRosha because that was the name I was using in MechWarrior Online. The reason I was using that in MWO, was because I used to play MechWarrior 2 way back in the 90’s, and that was the name I used then. I thought I would bring it back in case any old friends from back in the day would play MWO would be able to recognize me.

So why Gnume now? Well, I started using the name Gnume back in 2005 or so whenever EverQuest 2 came out. At the time, I thought it was clever because I was playing a Gnome Dirge…and I named him “Gnume Awldewe” for “New Me, Old You”. Silly I know!! Anyway, I kept using Gnume in pretty much every game since. I am also an amateur photographer and I have a Facebook Page and Website that I use for my photography called “Digital Life by Gnume”. I have had that going since around 2010. Hence, my brand that I have already sort of started using was Digital Life by Gnume! I was thinking I take digital photographs of people (hence “Life”) and voila, DLbGnume was born! I may evolve it a little further and just drop it all to Gnume, but we shall see!

Politics suck

I am saddened at the state of things in my country.  The new President is facing all sorts of difficulties getting important things done because he can’t get his cabinet nominations approved.  All I hear is “Well, the Republican’s blocked everything President Obama tried to do too, so it’s all fair“.  The way I actually read that is “Waaa Waaa, we are going to act like spoiled children because that is what was done to us!”  It’s like no one wants to be an adult about things and make a decision based on what is right for the country.  Democrats are acting like children because it happened to them.  Republicans acted like children because things weren’t going their way either.  No one wants to be the adult until the other one does it first!  Seriously?  Both the GOP and Democrats want to lead our country.  But NEITHER will step up to the plate FIRST to act appropriately.  Now, the GOP is all like “The Democrats need to do their jobs.” Funny how just a year ago it was actually reversed.  The GOP wasn’t doing their jobs either! How are we supposed to take EITHER SIDE serious when all they insist on doing is acting out like the “other side” did because that was what happened to them!  It’s an endless, vicious cycle and our country suffers because of this.  Politics suck.

New Hosting Company and New Look

Well, looks like the hosting company that I have used for at least the past 10 years has gone out of business or something.  So, I have swapped over to Hostgator.com for my site hosting.  I thought I would also swap up the look and go with a WordPress Blog for now since I have become pretty familiar with it using it over on the EMCA Website.

I will update the look and feel of this site as I have time…
