Wasting time ...

You ever have one of those days when you can't get started on ANYTHING of importance, but can knock out endless little side projects? Sure you have. Heck, MOST of my days are like that! That's what I get for spending 10 years without a schedule. When I was actively steering Eschaton, I had a 24/7 sort of schedule, so stuff just sort of got done as I was able to get it done.

Anyway ... I've been getting these Pokemon cards for Daughter #1 ... one of the things that I found confusing is that there are not just ONE set of cards, but many sets, with various themes. The cards have little bitty logos on them (about 1/8" across) which indicates which set it's from. Unfortunately, as far as I was able to tell, there is NOTHING that gives you a break-down on what logo belongs to what set, etc. There are sites with really great full set lists, but inexplicably they don't show the logo of the set (so I was at first having to go "by braille" of comparing the ##/### on each card, since most of the sets have unique total numbers) to let you know what set the card you have in your hand is part of!

So, here I was, DEEP into avoiding all the things I HAVE TO GET DONE, and what did I whip up? A nice web page to identify the various sets ... check it out at POKEMON CARD SET LOGOS ... I had scanned in all these little bitty logos to do labels for the various sets that we were getting for Daughter #1, and I had the info on the "what/when" for most of them as well, so I figured setting up a site would be a nice thing to do for the NEXT poor schlub who's out there trying to find out about this Pokemon stuff!
