Chris G. Williams Beware: I mix tech and personal interests here.
A long time ago, I posted this. (click the link, go on... you know you want to.)

Today, it came back to bite me in the proverbial ass.  Ok not, really... I actually don't care much one way or the other, but I digress... any excuse for a blog post, right?

I'm going to be passing through Greenville, SC this weekend (and next weekend) and I figured I'd extend an olive branch to the Command Post and see what happened. Instead of just strolling in unannounced and watching the fur fly, I emailed Kevin (the owner of the Command Post) and politely inquired as to whether he would be cool with me swinging by, buying a few things and seeing a few friends on my way to Charleston, SC.

I'm completely NOT surprised to say, he responded EXACTLY as I expected he would. In fact, he even did me the courtesy of providing the above link in his response so I wouldn't have to go find it. (Thanks Kevin, you're the best!!)

The funny part here is that little dude can REALLY hold a grudge. Honestly, I've done far worse to far better (and lesser) people and they all got over it. (Ok, there may be a couple people who haven't... but this isn't their story, now is it?) It's only been a couple months past a year and a half, so I can see why the wounds may still be a little tender.

The truly funny part is that he knows perfectly well I'll post this in response. So am I playing into his brilliant plan, giving him more reason to foam at the mouth over the injustices of the world? Or... did he play into my brilliant plan by responding the way I knew he would to my gesture of goodwill, thus giving me an opportunity to have a little more fun at his expense?

Wow... it's nice to know that game store politics don't change regardless of geographical location. Sounds like some of the bs I got to encounter in the late 80's early 90's around the Twin Cities...
