Random Content


Much to everyone’s surprise, we have a calendar for this blog that shows who is writing what on which day. Even more surprising is that we have managed to keep to it for the past couple of weeks. Because today is my day and because last week I volunteered for this day not knowing what I would write about but fully confident that I would have something to write about, it sat on the calendar as “Philip – Random Content.”

Well if 12 years of parochial school taught me anything it’s, “Do what you’re told!” So in the spirit of randomness (and to honor the legacy of Sister Catherine Sullivan) I decided to wander the halls of PopCap Games and try to pay attention to the many random things that I pass every day and take for granted.

Oh, for a disc-drive large enough…

GAH! What the-?
