Thanks guys!  I appreciate the well wishes.  Lee I did buy a very nice new camera for trip, a Samsung NX-1 that I hope to work with this summer and see if I can take a good photo or two.

This is rapidly becoming the best time to be an RPG fan since the height of the PS2-era.  That looks fantastic!

Congrats man. I am semi retired (at least for now) and it's pretty great not having to worry about being any where. Be safe on your travel. Take lots of pictures.

Looks like the latest patch fixed the FPS issue I was having. Runs pretty smoothly now on a 780 - before it was not. Actually feel like I can start playing it for real now.

That's a pretty sweet deal. I'm 58 and thinking tentatively about retiring at 67. I could call myself "semi-retired" because Curio City only demands my full attention during one quarter...but my wife does a burn when I say that, so I don't.  icon_razz For most of the year I only work 2-4 hours a day, and that's at home.

Enjoy your new life as a man of leisure. You earned it.

Well I for one am enjoying the show immensely still.  I think it's fantastic that they gave Sansa an interesting plotline instead of leaving her cooped up in the Aerie or whatever.  They've done a great job with all the characters that bored me the most in the book (Margaery, Sansa, those boat people).  I enjoy the actor who plays Ramsay and the Ramsay/Theon stuff is just plain sick fun (for me) to watch.  I'm looking forward to seeing Sansa turn her fortunes around.  Also enjoying the way they are playing out Arya's training and last week's CGI reveal was fantastic.  Ditto on the recent dragon CGI.

The thing I do find confusing (but this was the same in the books) is the passage of time, which I can never tell.  When you're watching the show it feels like everything is happening concurrently.  But obviously there are things that have to have time passed, like Tyrion sailing or Arya training, but  I never get a sense of just how long things are happening.  Winter has been coming for five seasons lol, just how long does it take to come?  No pun intended.  Well maybe.  This is a problem for me in the books as well, but in the books it's a different effect since you read everything from a single character point of view.  Maybe it's not important, but I'm curious about things like how long Arya "trains" before becoming awesome.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Oh yeah and what happened to UNDEAD CATELYN!!?!??!?!  I demand zombies!!!!

I saw an article dealing with the passage of time in GoT, and it was interesting.  The problem they are facing is that each book covers less than a year, whereas each season needs to cover at least a years time.  Its easy to squeeze an entire book into a 3 month story, no matter how long between books it has been.  However, every season of the show the kids are one year older, no matter how little time has passed between their story lines in the books. 

lol yeah I keep waiting for Bran to show up as 6 foot, 160 pound teenager and have Hodor unable to carry him.  And hopefully Arya won't blossom suddenly like that girl from Modern Family lol.

Definitely a rare thing these days to have been able to stick with one job for so long.  You're also lucky to be able to retire at 55, young enough to really enjoy it!  smile
