You may be wondering what I'm doing up this late, well it's not insomnia or too much caffeine nor a badly set clock, I am in fact sitting some 6000 miles away from merry old England in Sunnyvale California.
I picked up a game called Zack and Wiki - (some sub title I forget) for the Wii at the end of last week and it seems to me the best yet use of the Wii's capabilities to make a fun reasonably light game.
Poor Language Warning: Ok, Apple, you are a bunch of ridiculous bastards and it will take a lot more evidence for me to buy anything from you again. You're hopeless stupid and arbtrary and I hate the ground you walk on.
As I was filtering through the inordinate amount of spam and crap I get in my inbox this morning, I spotted an email offering a reduced entry into the Windsor half-marathon in September. Before I realised it I was starting to complete the info and dig out my card. I managed to stop just in time...after all, I have New Year Resolutions to keep...
This year I have enacted my plan to go to a developing country, I have been plotting a trip to Uganda for some time but since the bit I want to go to is close to the Kenyan border it seems like a crappy plan.
I'm a fan of Biowares games since way back. I can vividly remember arguing the pros and cons of various party members for Baldur's Gate 2 while when we were at uni. Knights of the Old Republic was one of the first must have titles for the xbox and was a game I played into the ground.
If this is a rant then it's a rant about my own inadequacies and inability to move on. Since I got Boggy (the name of my iPod Touch), I've been using iTunes as the player, downloader and so on. Before iTunes, if I wanted music, I'd nearly always borrow it from someone, think it's good and then get the album.
Myself and EMW have a site called Rocket Propelled Badger for film reviews.
Its based on Ruby on Rails scripts running from a SQL backend, pretty standard. Matt wrote it a fair while ago, and its been running fine since then.
