One of the projects I'm working on at work is an incident command training simulation for emergency situations, used to train new firefighters. One of the good things is one of the versions of the simulation / game is going to be displayed at the Serious Games Conference... Unfortunately, I don't think I get to go, unless I pay. It'd be nice if my company paid, but that's a long shot.

Anyways, design on my project is just about finished, I'll be bringing up some of the finer, more exciting points later today when I get back from work, then I'll start by getting Ogre setup so I can begin laying out the framework of the engine, and getting everything rolling.

With this comes the realization that I spend WAY too much time playing CounterStrike: Source >_<. So I've decided that instead of buying a new computer that will give me that extra 50 fps so I don't lag out in gunfights, I'm going to buy a motorcycle and gear instead. I'm tired of riding everywhere on my bike. Soo I'm getting an ebony 2005 Kawasaki Ninja 500r (Pictar), along with all black gear (shoes have some gray on them, but gloves, helmet, jacket are all black). Hopefuly I'll have it before the end of the month. It gets about 60 miles to the gallon in the city, and if I really needed to fast, I could (0 to 60 in 4 seconds); but I'm a good boy, so that won't happen (more or less because I'm a pansy).

Farewell, for about 3 hours.

That is a sweet, sweet bike. I've wanted a motorcycle for a long time now, but I can't afford one right now :(. I keep going back and forth between the GSXR600 and the YZF-R6. Ninjas are of course also up there.
