"I have noticed even people who claim everything is predestined,
and that we can do nothing to change it,
look before they cross the road."

Orionid Meteor Shower Peaks This Weekend

This weekend, the Orionid Meteor Shower will peak. Although it is not the most spectacular of the annual meteor showers, the Orionids can still produce around 15 to 20 "falling stars" per hour. Appear to be radiating from the constellation Orion, this meteor shower occurs annually when the Earth moves into the debris left behind by Halley's Comet. It is a wonderful show that is visible from both hemispheres; so, I urge anyone to look up at the night sky weekend. As in previous years, I recommend visiting Spacedex for tips, tricks, and to find out about optimum viewing conditions in your area.

Hearthstone Beta Key Winner!

All right people, the Hearthstone beta key giveaway has come to an end, and it is time to announce the winner. I numbered all entries on Facebook and put them through a random number generator. So, without further ado, here is the winner:

Douglas Toms

Congratulations Douglas! I sent you the code via private message on Facebook (check your inbox)! I'd also like to thank everyone who played; it was fun to see so many people professing interest in the game. Unfortunately, there could have been only one winner, but for all those who did not win: the open beta is just around the corner. Keep your chin up!

Hearthstone Beta Key Giveaway!

After waiting for months to get into the beta of Blizzard newest game, Hearthstone, I recently received not one but two beta keys. Since I only need one, I decided to give away the other. To win it, all you need to do is like this website on Facebook and leave a comment on this post, but please make sure you include your real name (or whatever name you use on Facebook) somewhere in the comment, so I can identify you among the Facebook likes.

I will select a winner between the eligible commenters via a random number generator tomorrow at 2:00 PM Eastern Time and send the code on Facebook via private message. The key is for the North American region, so please do not play if you know you won't be able to use it.

Please don't leave your e-mail addresses in the comments! I do the giveaway via Facebook because I don't want anyone to fall pray to spammers!
