Anyone can take out the lone zombie. It’s slow and stupid, and since they’re already dead, you should have no qualms about turning its head into a canoe. Just watch any of the various zombie-killing training videos (Zombies on Broadway, Shaun of the Dead, Zombieland, etc.) and you’ll see what I mean. The real problem is dealing with a zombie horde, and really, your best chance then is to just take off and nuke the site from orbit – it’s the only way to be sure.

But, for those of us without spaceships and tactical nukes, we have to rely on fortifying our position and picking those zombies off one by one until they’re all dead, again. Well, that’s what happened with Stuffer Shack. We got invaded by a zombie horde, and had to hunker down until we could get a handle on it.

And here’s the kicker: I’m responsible for it all. I tried to upgrade the Shack by re-purposing a lone zombie, but he ended up being more than I could handle (it turns out you can’t train an old zombie). Anyway, he ate through part of our site trying to get to our brains, and then created a horde for help (strength in numbers). It’s been a frustratingly long battle, but eventually we prevailed (discipline is key, rule #47).

All the zombies are dead, again, and now our focus is on rebuilding. However, it’s actually a blessing because we get to build the site back up even better than it was before.

– The Shack will have a more professional appearance and function.
– All of our articles will be more easily attainable, as you can swiftly browse by topic or writer.
– Also, readers will now have the ability to start their own column or portfolio here – for free!

The blog is now back up. Articles might not be that pretty, and various options might not yet be available, but I’ll be rebuilding on a daily basis. So stick around, because the new Stuffer Shack will definitely be worth the wait.

Thanks for reading.

More awesomeness...

In Chris's opinion, the very best vices are dirt bikes, rock music, and gaming, while the very best medicine is fatherhood. If he could just learn to balance them all, he'd live forever. He's much more creative than intelligent, often wakes up belligerent, and ponders many things insignificant. Lastly, in an effort to transform his well-fed body, P90X, Roller Blades, and Food are all laughing at him. And the pain continues.

  1. Glad you’re back!

  2. Yay! Take THAT zombies!

  3. If only you knew a priest of Sigmar….

  4. Thanks, my fellow chummers. It’s going to be a long clean-up, but we’ll get there!

  5. You’re finally back!

  6. Love the new look! I’m glad you’re back and have emerged (relatively) unscathed from the zombie hoard. 😉

  7. Glad you are back, but don’t listen to that guy about getting a priest of Sigmar. If you want to get rid of some undead, you’re better off getting a priest of Pholtus.

  8. Glad you are back! Love the new look and feel.
