About Level-42

Level-42 is a blog about geeky things that I like to talk about. I write reviews, talk about issues in geek culture, and rant about video games. My goal is first and foremost to have fun writing. Then I hope to write something people enjoy reading.  Somewhat. Maybe. Shrug

If you’re here you probably have an inkling about where I came up with the name for the blog. If not, go read some Douglas Adams and then come back.

The Geek must flow.


I started gaming way back with a game called Stars!.  It had virtually no graphics, no sound – it was just a window that let me abuse the F10 key to generate new turns.  It’s all pretty much gone downhill from there.

80s Brit Pop Music? No relation.

  1. Hi Drew!
    Just wanted to let you know that Valheru Ascendants is still up and going strong in Anarchy Online! I inherited Presidency in 2007 from Tep and Roman and while I took a break in 2010 to do other things, I returned in 2012 and continued to build.
    I can’t say as I remember you, but Ive been there since 2005, am also a Pittsburgher, and an avid FC/AO gamer. AO was my first MMORPG and Ive not yet found a reason to go to another one 🙂 It celebrates it’s 12 year this month (June 2013), an it would be nice if you would fire her up and say hello to the new VA, see th echanges in game, and tell us some “old timer” stories! I’m quite sure our Org would enjoy that!
    I look forward to hearing from you!

    1. Hi Laura –

      I don’t know that I recall you either. I haven’t talked to Tep or Vir in years now, but I think back on them fondly. Last I heard, Tep and his wife were out in the mid-West. I vaguely recall another Pittsburgh-er in AO – Emerald? Esmerelda or something like that? Are you her?
