Zilch completed (pretty much)

22 06 2012

I’ve been playing Zilch on Kongregate on and off for well over a year in order to get all 119 achievements. The problem was always staying consistent with the same browser and not losing all your achievements when you move to a new computer.

Of all the available achievements, I’m only missing 4, they are:

  • Ma-hoo-hassive score!: Taking 6,000 pts on one turn – I’ve been trying with reckless abandon for about 40 games and have still not got this achievement – I’ve been over 5000 2 or 3 times, but haven’t crossed 6000 yet.
  • Lifetime Zilcher: 100 wins in total – these last three just require putting in more mindless time and I don’t intend on reaching them
  • Zilch Fiend: Finish at least 200 games
  • Gold Plated Zilch Machine: Finish at least 500 games

10 years of movie reviews

19 06 2012

While I have certainly let my webpage go to pot while I’ve spent more time on G+, I have kept up the brief movie reviews section and have just completed 10 years of reviews yesterday.

To celebrate, here are links to the top 10 lists from each year: 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005, 2004, 2003 and 2002.

Some trivia:

  • I’ve only given 11 movies a 10/10 rating
  • I’ve watched 976 movies for an average of 0.2671 movies per day or about 1 movie in 4 days
  • The average movie rating I give is 6.86; I consider a 7 to be a recommendable movie



Megaman Printable Coloring Pages

My kids love coloring pages so I thought I’d make a few of them with Megaman. If you like them and want others, let me know and I can probably make them.



Megaman Cross Stitch Project Complete

4 06 2012

By the Numbers:

  • 764 days to complete (2 years, 1 month, 3 days)
  • over 56,500 X’s (8 scenes were 81 X 81 X 8 = 52,488 X’s plus title = 4,318 X’s and boss names = a few more)
  • 17 DMC skeins completely used up (10 black and 7 of various colors)
  • 43 different colors used
  • only black, white and Megaman’s flesh color were used on all 9 panels
  • most color on a single panel is Crashman with over 71% black
  • overall finished size is 2′ 8″ X 13″ (each boss panel is 5 3/4″ square)

See all the individual panels here.

And, I think that I’m done cross stitching for a while. I’ll have to figure out what my next project will be.



Airman Completed, Project Finished!

2 06 2012

Well, it took a long time but I’ve finally finished the last Megaman panel in the cross stitching extravaganza, I now only have to put all the sheets together and put it up on the wall. I’ll do a final post when that happens.

See the others here.
