I don’t play computer games very often, although I did for a while. I liked stuff like Larry, Populous, Zork and Monkey Island. The last game I really enjoyed was the Blade Runner game, but after that everything went completely 3D and I haven’t the appetite for that. Now there’s this Sims thing. Tell me if I should get into that.
Patent schmatent. Call me shallow. Don’t really care about Amazon getting a patent on their one-click ordering thingie (the ‘ooops there I go again throwing money down the drain’-button.). But then I also thought it was a good idea for VARA to want to go commercial. Maybe I am a capitalist pig? And a stupid one too?
Aargh. Thought I’d check up on Narwal to find out why my new comp hasn’t arrived yet. Turns out they never received my final confirmation (the joys of e-mail). So it’ll be later this week. After my break (which ends tomorrow). Bah. Plus I think my eyesight is deteriorating. Maybe that’s because I stare at monitors 20 hours a day.
I’ve been good today. Went to the bank to change some dollars (I get them through the sales of my book) and then decided NOT to spend the money on a new cellphone. I don’t need one.
Hey… what’s happened to MUSE?
Yoink. What’s he building in there…
If you want to stay sane, do not, DO NOT install the MSIE 5.5 beta.
From the Chickenhead newsletter: Chickenhead is one of four finalists for the South by Southwest Interactive Festival’s Satire & Humor award. The competition? Comedy Central, The Late Show with David Letterman, and something pretty damned
cool called Daze of Our Lives. While a judge will pick the winner, your vote in the People’s Choice category would be muchly appreciated. Please take a moment to vote for independent Internet content – because Estelle Getty’s future depends on it!
From the Film Threat newsletter: I had to look very closely to even realize, “Oh, yeah, that IS Michael Douglas. Why does he look so gay?” I often see this use of the word ‘gay’ in American publications. It annoys me. Is it a language thing? Am I too sensitive?
