Confirmed: I’m not getting the PC back anytime soon

This may fall under category of "bad parenting" but probably not. I hope not. Just don't tell Lily, OK? My daughter saw all of the fun her brother has playing Team Fortress 2 and wanted in on the action. The kitchen… Continue Reading →

Just mind the wind
