I'm pleased to say that I'm statisfied with this car. The driver position is confortable for long drives, and the car is responsive (despite the fact that it's an auto-gear. Do you ever drive manual gear cars, you American people? It's a lot more fun, you know). I pushed it to its limits (hoping that no policemen was roaming there), and it went nicely to its 120 mph. All in all, that was pretty fun. I definitely plan to buy one some day (when my MG ZR will die, I guess)
The dinner was really nice too! I tasted a red wine from Temecula (don't remember the name, but I think it was some merlot. Unsure about that though). It was quite good, with some distinctive points - although it was not that different from a French merlot. For the main dish, I chosed some chicken rolls with (made in America) French brie inside. That was tasty as well.
Of course, most of the discussion went on gamedev.net. I got a better view of the undergoing changes, our goals for the new millemnium (well, at leadt for this year), and on the organization itself (who is in charge of doing what there). That was rather informal, but very informative.
So yes, that was a very good day. The only bad thing is that I did some shopping at the Del Amo Fashion Center near my hotel, bought too many things, and had to buy another carry-on to be able to get everything back to France. Geez, when will I stop to spend my money? [smile]
