Stolen from stargazer, because I'm procrastinating getting to work.. on anything.
  1. As a child, who was your favorite superhero/heroine? Why?

    I'm not sure if I had one. I wasn't allowed to have comic books or watch cartoons when I was little, so I didn't really know much in the way of superheroes. Maybe Commander Keen.

  2. What was one thing you always wanted as a child but never got?

    Video stuff. My parents got me a book about "virtual reality" when I was in 5th grade (IIRC) and it had all kinds of stuff about 3D Studio, video capture, and chroma keying. I thought it was the best thing ever, and I was absolutely crushed when I learned that 3D Studio R4 carried a pricetag of $3k. None of the visual effects stuff was remotely affordable for a kid. I think that if I were born maybe 5 or 7 years later, I might be going to film school rather than studying computer science.

  3. What's the furthest from home you've been?

    In an airplane right before it descended on Disney World in Florida. (I was closer to home when we touched down) I've never been outside of US/Eastern.

  4. What's one thing you've always wanted to learn but haven't yet?

    What is wrong with me. Seriously. Before I die, I would love to know what I did to break everything. Maybe also get my amateur radio license.

  5. What are your plans for the weekend?

    Unknown. Some mix of writing code, playing video games, and whatever people here are doing.

I went through the same deal with that book. Virtual Reality MADNESS, right?
It had all those great screenshots and tutorials for 3D Studio and such, but it only came with that Domark builder-thing and a demo of Vistapro. I was so disappointed.

Yes, that's the one! I spent way way way too much time playing with the stuff on that CD.

Drop out of UMD and enroll in film school!
