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...


Crunchy

So I finally broke down and slept for a couple of hours. Amazingly, I actually woke up before my alarm and feel completely fine, even after only 5 hours of sleep. My body is in a really weird operational mode right now.

I snoozed not so much from exhaustion but from boredom; last night I had the position updater loop about 80% done, but just didn't...


Work. I won't talk about my laptop (much).

Well, this has been a fun week. As I mentioned earlier, I'm doing a sort of self-imposed crunch mode to try and nail a deadline. At this point, it's working - as measured by the fact that I can no longer coherently remember when I have slept over the past 2-3 days. Thanks to the miracle of caffiene and my utterly borked metabolism, though, I'm still running...

OMFG TEH DRAMAS!!!!

So I bought myself a really nice new laptop and a nice new case to go with it. I did something fairly unprecedented in my internet-buying career and paid for fast shipping on both, since I leave Monday for two weeks and want to be able to take my nice new toys with me.

So, after having to deal with a bunch of red tape with my bank to authorize the...


Work, the four letter word

The remainder of this week is going to be interesting.

I've self-imposed a minicrunch for this week in order to ensure I hit a project milestone that involves this cutscene stuff I've been working on. The week out for E3 set things back a bit further than I would have liked, and I'm going to have to really push hard to get to where I want to be. This...

Oh dear God, I am so very, very weak.


I just bought a W2JB. For the first time in (I think) my entire career of buying stuff on the Internet, I also paid for expedited shipping, in the hopes that I'll have the box to take with me to Germany next week when I go visit Ye Olde Company Headquarters.

I am currently sickeningly giddy. Buying new toys...


I have GOT to get me one of these...

Mmmm... soo hot...

I have definitely got to get in on some of that action.

E3 2006 Recap

E3 2006 Recap
Alright, here we go. I was planning on doing running entries all through the show, but I quickly realized two important things: that my laptop's battery life sucks and I couldn't use it to take notes during the conference sessions and write journal updates at the same time, and that I was too interested in the show to waste time sitting...
