Life, the Universe, and Everything. Or not.
I've been spending a lot of time this week sleeping and just generally goofing around with my flatmate. Our current project is to play through Final Fantasy III (which I've done, but he hasn't) and then FFVII (which he's done, but I haven't). Beer, Pizza, and old school gaming - that is how it should be.
Every now and then I've been clocking in a few minutes to work on the next update for X³: Reunion, although not a lot of that has been going on. I did pick up a couple of joypads to test with the game, bringing my total collection of peripherals to a Saitek gaming keyboard, a Saitek Cyborg Evo joystick, a Gravis Destroyer Aftershock joystick, a Logitech Extreme 3D joystick (which, thanks to the wankers at eCost.com, I do not actually possess yet), a Saitek P2500 joypad, and a Logitech Rumble Force 2 joypad. I'll have to edit in some pics of the goodness later.
When we went out trolling for the joypads, I came across some copies of X³ in the wild:
That's pretty cool to see. Naturally I had to pick up a copy on CD to fill out the shrine; I'll update that with pics later, too.
For now I'm stuck in my office, writing application code, and debugging weird quirks with rolling timestamps and PHP's mktime() function. Only two and a half more days this week (turkey! woot.), then four more weeks, and I'm out of here to go full time at Egosoft.
January cannot come soon enough.
