Belated Caucus Report

My co-workers were giving me grief for not blogging about my caucus experience, so here's what I posted on Daily Kos:

Freeway Precinct for me. We had 40 people turn out, which was WAY up from the 7 that showed up in '04. Our precinct went 26 - 14 for Obama and our delegates got allocated 5 - 3. Nobody really wanted the job, so I not only got elected one of the delegates, but also PCO. Yay for me. :o)

The room was basically busting at the seams and they had to open up other rooms in order to fit everyone in. There was only one woman in charge of the whole thing, so it was a little frazzled.

There was one mix-up in my precinct. Right about when we had finished electing the delgates and most people left, a gay couple came in, very upset because someone had misdirected them to another caucus site after they had showed up at the correct location. They were Clinton voters and were understandably quite upset that they were too late through no fault of their own. We tallied the numbers, just in case to make sure that it wouldn't change the delegate count, but in the end it wouldn't have changed the delegates.

So, the Verizon guys came over on Wednesday and hooked me up with FiOS. It rocks. I went from 768K/128K to 5M/2M. That's roughly 7 times my old download speed and 16 times my old upload speed and it's not shared like cable, so it's all mine. Muhuwahaha!

Well, those of you who aren't Final Fantasy nerds like me probably couldn't care less, but this is super exciting to me:

Outside of Crisis Core, Famitsu editors asked about new developments in the Compilation series, noting that players are hoping for a FFVII remake. Yes, questions about a remake of FFVII are required whenever interviewing Nomura and Kitase.

Tabata avoided the remake issue entirely, instead pointing out that Square Enix will be distributing a new episode of Before Crisis for mobile players simultaneously with the Crisis Core release. This episode features Reno as the main character.

A remake of FFVII is a question of timing, Imaizumi said, noting that Kitase, Nomura and Tabata are all busy with the Final Fantasy XIII series. He added that a new game of some form will be announced at the Tokyo Game Show. We're not sure if he's referring to a new game in the FFXIII series or a general new title from Kitase, Nomura and Tabata. Either way, we're already excited.

This new title appears to be separate from the new Kingdom Hearts project that Tetsuya Nomura has previously confirmed for a TGS unveiling. Asked about the announcement, Nomura simply asked readers to look forward to it.

Imaizumi closed off by confirming once again that there are currently no plans for a FFVII remake. However, he noted that this could change rather quick, alluding to Kitase's comment about how the decision to make Crisis Core took only two days.

Well, what do you know... It looks like it's going to happen:

FF VII Citadel
Next up is a possible confirmation of the current rumor to end all rumors. Apparently, if you beat Crisis Core twice, you'll be treated to a special movie that looks a lot like the PS3 tech demo. However, this movie ends with the words "to be continued in Final Fantasy VII". Not going to mention the "R" word here; just take from this what you will. In the meantime, read the whole story and see the screenshots at your choice of Kotaku, the NeoGAF forums, and/or Jeux France.

Bunny Moth?

Bunny Moth?, originally uploaded by Jefe Le Gran.

I'm assuming it's dead since it's been sitting on our front porch for the last 3 or 4 days, but I was surprised at how un-moth-like it was when I actually got a picture of it. It's face looks more like a rabbit or a bat than a moth.
