My last entry about boost.python was way off. I learned how to read this morning and tried again.
But yeah, got up nice and early and felt well-rested thanks to melatonin. Operating Systems (412) final was a massacre. Not enough time to reason my way through several problems that I didn't immediately recall the answer to. Planetary Geology final went much better.
I got the original System Shock today. Don't know why I haven't played this before, but it's looking pretty fun. The controls are way out there, though. And they don't seem to be configurable. It didn't look too happy in dosbox, so I used these instructions
to run it in WinXP with VDMSound. Man, VDMSound has improved a lot since the last time I used it.
