Just thought I'd post about what I've been doing lately. I'm on my last few days with my current employer before I finally start working at BioWare! I've been waiting much too long to start there, as they wanted me May 1st but I asked for end of May so I could do some crazy knowledge transfer and wrap up activities at my current job. They were more than accommodating which made me feel a lot better about it all. May 31st is my last day at the current job and then I go on a four day fishing trip up North with my dad to serve as a nice break. Then I get back on the Sunday and start work at BioWare on the Monday (June 5th). I'm VERY excited and can't wait to start. I think I'm now on the Unreal Engine 3 tech stream there so I'll be doing some engine and tools modifications to UE3 and also creating and maintaining some new tools. I'm also working on a VERY cool game but I can't say what it is :)
Still working on getting a bunch of side projects and code files released on my Web site. It's a slow process since I have to find all the good pieces and clean them up, but in the end I think everyone will have enjoyed the wait.

Book has been doing very well, and I've been getting excellent reviews. Thanks so much to everyone that picked up a copy. I hope you all enjoyed my book as much as I did writing it!
