It's done!

As of 3am today I finished my section of the 'Programming Vertex, Geometry and Pixel Shaders' book project. I then proceeded to get 4hrs sleep before getting up for work and I'm running on a full tank of caffeine fuel today [oh]

In the end I've clocked up 33,411 words over 112 A4 pages (~170 pages in the book I think - hopefully they won't have to cut that down!). Not too shabby for 6 months work [grin]

I'll see about writing up a 'debrief' on my part of the book before I go away on holiday, but suffice to say I'm about 90% happy with what I've produced. Timing considered I'm 99% happy that I've produced good quality within the time allowed.

This weekend will be my first "free" weekend in 6 months - no house hunting, no book writing and just a little bit of packing for my holiday in Seattle. Tonight's plan is to vegetate in front of a film with a crate of beer [smile]




In other news, anyone who reads the the official Windows Vista magazine here in the UK will see my mugshot this month:



The magazine looks like this and costs GBP3.99 should you want to go get a copy. I'll be autographing copies next week.


ooh, I'm an expert


I should get extra commission for publicising our book like this


This is what it was all about - my 78 words of wisdom used to fill some dead space on a page about building a gaming PC [lol]

Only need 123 people to read this journal to hit the 100,000 mark [grin]

I just realised I look ginger in those magazine shots [oh] Not that I have anything against ginger hair, but I don't actually have glow-in-the-dark hair...

When you said your mug shot was in the Vista magazine and then immediately after that posted the picture of the girl on the cover it made me have quite the confused face until I looked at the next images [lol]

Who goes to Seattle for a vacation?
I do! I've got to be in town for the MVP summit next week, so I'm just hanging around for a few extra days...

You realize it's snowing here today?
Best pack my hat and gloves then!
