Merry Christmas!

Merry (Belated) Christmas!

I hope you all had a very merry Christmas. And if you don't celebrate, then a very happy holiday. [smile]

It was my original intent to post yesterday, but I was waiting to get a picture -- a nice shot with me and the family C-tree! -- taken with my digital camera, so I could get it up here. Unfortunately, the USB cable for it is nowhere to be found, so no beans. You'll have to settle for the GIF above and once-a-year green text. :P

And of course, what's Christmas without gloating about the loot I got? Santa was kind enough to part with:

  • O'Reilly's Learning PHP and mySQL - Awesome. I've been dieing to get into PHP/mySQL for a while now. :)
  • Loads of clothes 'n socks
  • A new desktop - 2.4ghz, 512mb RAM (soon to be upgraded), and a decent harddrive. Nothing really fancy, but it'll be much much faster than the desktop I currently have at residence. I can't wait to get lost in Oblivion with some upped settings. ;)
  • $150 - Acquired cumulatively by various relatives. To be promptly spent on stuff. :)
  • $1000 - By my generous uncle, to go towards my education. :)
  • A smorgasboard of candy - Far too many of the chocolate mint candies that I adore. I'll have to give some away at residence to prevent Steve->Fat++.
  • Chainfire by Terry Goodkind
  • Enchanter by Sara Douglass

All in all, I'm extremely happy with what I got, and I'm even happier that my family enjoyed the gifts that I got them. All of this wonder and joy has rekindled my gamedev motivation. :)

In addition to the 'space marine game' (codenamed Project Iris) I'm also developing another smaller project. Due to a little confusion, by space marines, I refer to the DooM variety.

Anyways, I hope everyone here had a great day full of giving, receiving, and seeing relatives. Let's not forget the turkey! [grin]

Damn! Monitor-Monitor teleportation not yet implemented!


EDIT: By space marines, I refer to the DooM variety.

Nonsense, there can be only one DOOM marine.

I need to go to the bookstore to pick up the next Sword of Truth book - I just finished reading Faith of the Fallen a couple days ago...

Also, PHP is bleh. *goes back to working on bleh* :(

If there's only one Doom marine, who are all the people I keep chainsawing in my LAN games? [crying]
