-MadOverlord.com is the official website of the Woodhead/​Ueki family, and should not be 
-confused with [[http://​www.eviloverlord.com/​|EvilOverlord.com]]. 
-While we agree in principle with the typical Evil Overlord'​s goal of World Domination, we feel 
-that, frankly, they'​re much too goal-oriented,​ and not much fun.  They spend way too much time 
-actually doing the boring conquering stuff, and not enough time doing the fun "​enjoying the 
-fruits of conquest."​ 
- 
- 
- 
- 
-Thus Robert "​Trebor the Mad Overlord"​ ((Robert is the co-author of Wizardry, one of the first computer "​dungeon"​ games, and so 
-has been known as "​Trebor the Mad Overlord"​ since 1980.  Anyone else using the name "​Trebor"​ on the 
-internet is an imposter and will be visited by his Ninja Death Squad)) Woodhead, 
-Natsumi "Power behind the throne"​ ((Also the power in front of the throne, to the left and right of the throne, above the throne, 
-and, if she wants to be, on the throne)) Ueki, 
-and our two little Mad Overlords in Training, James and Alex, have created this little website 
-so that you can see just how much fun being deranged (but happy!) megalomaniacs can be! 
- 
- 
-This site is updated fairly infrequently;​ it's basically a record of weird projects we've done.

-Using my HD camera and the Exilim EX-F1, the boys and I captured some good 
-footage of the combat robot fights from 
-[[madoverlord:​Robots-2008RG|RoboGames 2008]]. ​ The robot, on the other 
-hand, didn't do so well, literally flaming out of the competition when the battery 
-melted down! 
- 
- 
- 
- 
-I've been playing with the Casio Exilim EX-F1 camera and getting some 
-[[madoverlord:​Projects-Exilim|interesting high-speed video]], with
