Dear Diary

It’s been some time since I last wrote in you, for that I am sorry, but I seem to be so busy with various other things. You’ll be happy to know, that one of these things is a new cover for your now half-dingy pages (sorry, but it’s true…).

Anyway, today I managed to finally catch up to an inbox crowded with week old mails. I sure hope I managed to get around everyone who was kind enough to write me, even if I did use short to-the-point sentences.

Yesterday I started playing Fable. It’s looking good so far I think. Though some people have critiqued it for not being what Peter said it would be. My only suggestion is that they try developing games themselves, that would be the end of that.

I expect to finish my copy of If Chins Could Kill tomorrow on the bus. Great book by the way, Bruce Campbell is a really honest guy.

About the bus; I biked to work the entire summer, but I must confess that I enjoy taking the bus, since it allows me to read for about an hour a day. Something which I otherwise never seem to be able to find the time to do. But of course, if I never take the time, how can I have it?

Another book I recently finished, was The Humane Interface, written by the guy who designed the original Mac. I borrowed it from Brian. What an eye opener! This book should really be mandatory for any kind of interface designer. Finally I got my hatred for the caps lock key and the behavior of the alt key in Windows justified. Moded interfaces are a grave injustice to human kind!

Saw Ladykillers and ate flapjacks / pancakes yesterday. The pancakes were better then the movie. Though it wasn’t bad. Nor particularly good… Not the best Coen movie out there, but worth your time I think.

I borrowed Troll and Troll 2 from Thor, with a promise of absolutely horrible waste of time and possible outbreak of cholera.

That’s all for now. Have fun.
