Paul came over, and since I got my windows box working again, we were playing the UT2003 demo. Until Paul asked when the game was coming out, and I mentioned that it's already out. So, ten minutes later I'm at Best Buy thanks to his car.

Now all 3 discs of UT2003 goodness are mine. I will not be playing anymore until tomorrow, SINCE I HAVE AN EXAM I NEED TO BE STUDYING FOR!@$

Also, when did games start coming in these small boxes? I drop fifty bucks on a game, I expect a big box, a 200 page manual, and CD-ROMs in JEWEL CASES!@$

Finally, I was looking for a replacement mouse at Best Buy. They didn't have any Logitech MX mice in stock, though. The guy said there might be some at the end of the week. So, whatever. My Intellimouse Optical has been crapping out again today.


Also, Patrick (of tylerandjack fame) was over today earlier and I was going through some of my stuff: spacegame, and some MZX stuff. And it turns out that he's into ZZT and has heard of MegaZeux. That blew my mind. I have never met anyone in meatspace that's used ZZT outside of my persuasion. Really wild.

But again. Must study. This exam is definitely doable. I need to:
  • learn how to draw syntax charts (missed that lecture)
  • Memorize Chomsky's stupid hierarchy
  • practice coming up with dope vectors and their ilk
  • Take more practice exams

(edit) insert mouse paragraph

They've been doing the small-box thing since sometime early this year I think. Lots of people are pissed about complex games (e.g. flight simulators and wargames and whathaveyou) not having the huge printed manuals like they used to, but instead having .pdf manuals on the cd.

and god dammit, I can't stand paper sleeves.

blame EA, they started it with the latest Everquest expansion...or was it something else. if anything, they decided it would cut cost immensly, and use less paper, so that's why they did it today.

EA, trees love you.
