Needless to say, I was not enthused.
Luckily, because it was a church function, two brand new Dell 21" flatscreens were bought for me, and they both are shining bright in all of their glory at me right now. It's a sight to behold. One of the ones that fell out of the back of the burb just has a logic board snapped in half, so if I can either eBay the part or figure out how to turn it on without a power button, I'm home free, with tres flatscreens. My desk isn't even that big.
In development related news, I'm still chugging away at 0 AD. Right now I'm working on entity values that are parsed through XML. They handle basically every property of any entity in the game - basically my job is to get default values so we can get some form of a game together to be able to tweak them. It's not too hard, just learning a whole new system, parsing class, and code semantics is a difficult with a short time span. I'll see if I can go into more technical details in my next post, it's really very interesting stuff.
Until next time, avoid the voidhawks. (tell me someone reads pete hamilton books?)
