Moa: The King of Destruction

What a week!

Today's Bridge: It was all us, despite my attempt to sabotage our side. Collapse )

Today's Work: More implementation and a nice long talk with Mike about my training, the project, management, and all of my various concerns. I'm sure we've covered a lot of that ground before, and I had a hard time sharing his optimism about certain things when I really should have, but I came out of it feeling better about things.

I didn't get in any gaming today other than the usual golf... I chatted with a few people and spent lots of time trying to figure out how to implement an elevator properly. I'm almost there, but when the elevator changes direction, the character is a step behind. That's visually annoying for horizontal elevators, since the character slides when it changes direction, but it's fatal for vertical elevators, because they throw the character off at the top. I can calculate where the character should be moving to, but no matter when I change its coordinates, it still can't keep up. There's something about the order of events that's screwing with my calculations, and I need to figure it out. I'll get it in the end.
Moa: The King of Destruction

A long day of doing nothing, mostly

Today's Manga: Jojo's Bizarre Adventure 10, Pretty Face 5, Tail of the Moon 10, Gun Blaze West 1, I.O.N. 1, Eyeshield 21 19, Dragon Drive 7, Le Chevalier D'Eon 4, Reborn 7, Muhyo & Roji's BSI 4, Hoshin Engi 6, La Corda D'Oro 7, and Hell Girl 1. I also bought the first two DVDs of Wallflower, the first season of Lil' Bush (I've heard a lot about it at work, and it sounds really funny - when even the people who don't have much of a sense of humor like it, that's a pretty high recommendation), The Animation Show, Destroy All Humans: Big Willy Unleashed for the Wii, and Malice for the PS2. I've never heard of it, but it's pretty fun for a $10 bargain game. Good sense of humor.

I watched Ocean's 11 and Ocean's 12 today, but didn't really pay attention. I watched Good Luck Chuck and paid attention. It was great. Good sense of humor.
