First, I tried to make meringue. Sadly, I didn't cook it long enough (the recipe said to cook for an hour, but I forgot to take into account that I kind of lumped it all into a giant pile instead of being nice and making little ones) so it didn't bake all the way through, so I ended up with a giant moist marshmellow instead of a hard, chewy meringue. Still tasted okay though, could have used some mint extract/cocoa/cinnamon.
Second. I have an uncle who, essentially smashed his back in a work-related accident, but wasn't paralyzed. This happened years ago, and he's be in and out of surgery just to make it less painful. The last surgery didn't go so well - as a result of it he contracted pnuemonia and a lung collapsed. He's still in the hospital, hopefully he'll recover.
Meanwhile, his 3 kids, aged 8-11 are very sad because one of their friends just died. And their dad is in the hospital. So my mum decided to have them come down and stay with us for a couple weeks so we can cheer them up. Aww, that's so sweet. And they're coming tommorrow.
Wait. You all know that I'm a little ADD and bouncy and crap. Well, these kids are roughly a thousand times worse. And there's 3 of them. Now, I don't know if you know that I know that you know that babysitting is a pain-in-the-ass, but it is. And I hate doing it. Because kids have a nice tendancy to brutally rape any hardware their hands come across. GOD FORBID they even FIND OUT I have a DS I will ... well, lock it away. Despite how much I love the system, its just tissue paper waiting to be torn. Consult Pipo for more details on how to brutally dismantle an NDS.
This is too long of a post, so I'll wait off on posting dev stuff. I need to ask some more questions about the techniques I'm going to use for this texture palette manager thingy (lol 3D textures!) because the redbook wasn't very detailed. Look for my post in teh OpenGL forum!!1
