Planetary geologist interested in anything below the ground, or above the sky. Primary area of research is in the early development of planetary systems, and their ongoing geochemical differentiation.

I'm also actively involved in computer-based modeling (typically finite volumes calculations), amateur rocketry design, and computer based rendering/animation. I guess you could say I have a range of interests...

comment Alternative rules for SimCity: The Card Game
I also really enjoyed the game, long long ago, but all I can do is agree that it suffers from poorly designed rules. Not certain what to suggest for revisions.

comment Countermeasures to “analysis paralysis”?
I should note about poker - I didn't mean that the game is simple to play at an advanced level, only that it's easy to get into and to play with others at about your level.

comment Taking back turns, and forgotten privileges
I would also add that in general, once the next person's turn is done, going back and rehashing "oops, I forgot to do this on my turn!" is not appreciated, even in a friendly setting.
