The Bag of Holding

Mmmm.... beer.

Well, I'll say one thing... us Germans sure do know how to make a beer.

Tonight's brew of choice was a nice Erdinger hefeweisse. Light, smooth, and very gentle. It's a good beer, although slightly too light for my personal taste. One thing I've noticed is that the imported shit we get in the U.S. is generally very little like the actual local...

The first word that comes to mind is "enlightening."

Actually, the first thing that comes to mind is rather a phrase, and the words typically average four letters. I won't repeat it here, as I suspect even the veteran sailors among us would be made slightly uncomfortable.

(Now I'm out of hyperbole and melodrama, so I'll just tell it straight. OK, maybe...

OK, now this is just cool.

Here at the office they've got a little mini instant espresso machine thingy. You get a little pre-sealed, individually wrapped chunk of compressed coffee, stick it into a little slot, select your preferred strength, and poke a button - and in 30 seconds you have a nice little espresso. Preheats the water to all the magical...

Whee, jetlag is fun!

Well, this has been a most disorienting 24 hours.

I arrived in Frankfurt yesterday (I'm pretty sure it was yesterday...) at about 6:30 AM, half an hour early. Let me tell you, these German folks really know how to run a passport control/customs line; I've been a few places and Germany has consistently (both times I've been here) been fast, efficient, and...

I'm here, and already busy as all get out.

More later, maybe [smile]

Mmmm... Deutschswaggen.

Woo... now that is the way to crash after a crunch week! I slept pretty much all day today, so really all I have to do now is throw some stuff in a suitcase and burn some time until my flight leaves.

Apparently, Germany is cold, which I do not particularly like (being a tropically-blooded kind of guy). So I have to pack lots of warm clothes, which means...

I hear we have a preview feature in journals now. I must test this rumour to see if it is true.

Also, being a non-mortal, I'm obligated to keep up a quota of journal updates. Or so I've been told.

Lame Excuse for Content
I finally got Milton swapped back over to the public half of my network today. The TKC site remains dead (and will do so until I get...

The hits just keep on coming...

I've gotten the dummy-render hack done for the cutscene system. It's very "dummy" and exceedingly "hack," but it works - I have an entire content pipeline that goes from a nifty little XML file to a moving box on the screen. I'm so proud.

So far, the system weighs in at 3184 lines of code, comments, and whitespace...

Toys to play with! Yayy!

Woohoo! My nice shiny new W2Jb has arrived. I type now on the most beautiful and powerful laptop I've ever seen.

This thing is really huge, compared to my old 15" Toshiba. It's like having a small European country of your own, except it's worth more. Despite the bulk, it's a very light machine, and quite comfortable to use. My only real question...
