Happy 2009 !!!

Best wishes for a fab 2009 to everyone in the GamePolitics community!

I’m taking Mrs. GP to a movie today (Milk), then dinner with the folks and maybe catch some of the Rose Bowl (rooting for Penn State).

How are you spending your day?

    Heh, I got RickRolled on New Year’s Eve only a matter of minutes before midnight (maybe over an hour, since I don’t remember when it happened), and I laughed harder than I had in a good long time.

    I’m glad I’m not the only person that Swing engenders that reaction from 😉

    Spent a good portion of the time watching the all day Looney Toons marathon on Cartoon network, one wonders why they show tom and jerry regularly yet never show looney toons.

    Well it’s not set in modern times, Nixon died in the 90s. According to wikipedia the interviews it was based off of took place in 1973.

    Spent the day getting my head around the Java Observable Interface and trying to bend my old Z80 head around Object-Orientated programming.

    It’s a very useful way of coding, but so easy to let things fly out from under the radar, you have to keep a close eye on the design specs.

    I think languages can get to a stage where they become too inter-connectible, for example, Java interfaces make for a useful tool, but unless you design with them in mind from the start, they can cause more confustion than assistance. This is not good when you are a University student who is learning the language whilst writing a project, since time is limited and it’s a pain to keep going back and re-writing sections based on newly gained information about the language.

    From what I recall the Swing interface doesn’t implement Hardware graphics acceleration, so I might also have to learn JOgl in order to do the main screen of my Uni project, yet more to add to the ever-growing list…

    Frost/Nixon makes me laugh.. Frost has a reputation here in the UK for being a decrepit old senile presenter, and in the film he’s some trendy young go-getter. xD

    Well, I just finished one file that needed to be transcribed for work and am going ot put off the other one until tomorrow — it’s the holiday, I can do that!  Also, just got Guitar Hero World Tour for Christmas from my hubby, so I’ll most likely play a few rounds of that.

    Playing video games and watching bowl games (including the Rose Bowl).

    I’m not a big movie-theater person, but I would like to see "Frost/Nixon" sometime.

    Playing Tetris. Just like how I celebrated the Obama victory. Damn I promised I wouldn’t do that. Oh, and I might go see Milk, looks pretty awesome.

    I’m probably going to spend today, and my day off tomorrow, working on leveling my paladin in WoW to 80.  I should get to 73 by today, and with any luck 74 by the end of the weekend.
