Today's REAL update

The lab testing concluded well. We got all the data we feel we needed, in recognizable formats, and tomorrow will be the big meeting to discuss where we'll go from here, how we'll get there, and what to do about the gaps where we still don't know where we're supposed to end up. I figure we'll still be tweaking requirements the day before delivery, and management will be expecting engineering to work their magic and have the changes made before they're requested. The sad part is, that's what we're going to have to do. That's engineering! </song-cue>

Today's Dinner: Microwave panini. Not great, but not too bad either.

Today's Gaming: Back to Blue Dragon at last. I've met ther character who I know from the demo will eventually become a fourth party member, and continued building up my party to what will hopefully be a more powerful state. I'm having Shu learn White Magic just so I'll have another healer, Jiro learn all the types of magic, although he's currently building up Monk abilities to give him some useful attacks even when he's a mage, and Kluke is a Guardian because it's got great stats, and her guard/counterattack combination should come in handy, since she's wearing the most powerful Bracelet. I forgot to equip Negotiate before shopping, though... must do that next time. Not like money's tight or anything, but there's always a point in the mid-to-late period of every RPG when you need to stop and accumulate some money because the prices in shops have jumped and you need the best stuff they sell. Then money becomes a moot issue and you never spend any more, but accumulate more and more of it.

Due to circumstances beyond my control, I expect to have even more time to play games in the near future, and maybe longer. I'm trying to spend some of that time writing, but when nobody cares about my stories anymore, there's little motivation.
