Chris G. Williams Beware: I mix tech and personal interests here.
This just might be the best week ever, or at least the best one in a long time...

Sunday I watched the new Knight Rider which was a lot of fun.  I hope they make it a series.

My tablet finally showed up yesterday and its working GREAT.

My XBOX 360 has been repaired and is on it's way. (edit:  FedEx says it will be here tomorrow.)

I just finished tech editing a (IMO) terrific VB 2008 book for O'Reilly.

Yesterday I got a nice letter from Microsoft, not just informing me about my MVP status & benefits but also welcoming me to the North Central district. Slightly more personal than your usual form letter. Pretty cool.

Yesterday was Boy #1's Birthday, and we had a great time. His actual party is this weekend, and there will be rock. (Apparently some of his buddies are bringing musical instruments.)  I'm really looking forward to this.

Today I lined up another tech editing gig, this time for Deitel (Pearson Ed) for another VB 2008 book!

Today, I found out that there will be XNA support for the ZUNE (omfglol) by the end of the year AND that there will be XNA Community Games on XBOX Live, starting today (with DBP winner The Dishwasher)

The Dream Build Play Silicon Minds Warmup Challenge winners are posted. Go there now. I'll wait.

Tomorrow night is my XNA User Group, and we're talking about one of my FAVORITE topics (other than yours truly):  Game AI

I spent several hours last night working on HA! again... that was awesome.

This weekend I'm hosting 20 complete strangers in my home for a Boardgames Meetup. Should be fun.

Man, this week has just flown by... Posted on Wednesday, February 20, 2008 2:24 PM Game Development , General Interest , Heroic Adventure! | Back to top

You need to play the lottery! You're on a roll! :-)

Nahh... why tempt fate? Besides, the lottery is just a tax for people bad at math.

Congrats! I hope your week continues to go well. You could just hibernate now until Sunday.
