  • Blog Post: Off Topic: Latte Printer

    You know how much passion Seattleites have for coffee and after living here for three years, I'm addicted. My favorite is the Grande Breve Latte.

    I love Bioshock . I think it's the best game this year and definitely better than Halo3 . One of the most beautiful parts of the game, apart from their level design, is the period music.
