The creativity, hard work and sheer geekiness which can be found on the net never ceases to amaze me. Just take a look at this:
Found on Boing Boing.
I have been having a bad time with headaches these last two weeks. I think hardly a day went by without getting struck with one.
The worst are those you get up in the morning with. They just ruin the rest of the day, right there and then. Your energy is gone a lot faster, and it gets much harder to focus on things. Plus, worst of all, you get really irritable. And then I get irritated at getting irritated.
I try to get past my headaches with as little pharmaceuticals as possible. One really nice remedy is a Chinese balm which is used to help sprained muscles. It heats the flesh, and when applied to the forehead can actually suppress headaches. So from this we can deduce that a headache is nothing more than a sprained muscle. And there's a lot of muscle in my head. ;-)
But sometimes there's just no getting around it and then I'm back to my Dafalgan and energy drinks. It's a lethal combination, but it often works.
Well, I'm still clear-headed now, and so there's only one thing to do: watch some House MD. :-)
Best talk I've seen in a while.
As an aside: I haven't been writing much because I haven't been doing much worth writing about. I'm still working on Koopa, trying to flesh out the grammar to be more complete. I want to work further on Doodler, but I'm somewhat stuck on getting the architecture right. What I have so far doesn't feel right somehow. So I'm waiting for some inspiration.
Also: I've been playing Mirror's Edge, which is a crazy game. I don't think I have ever cursed quite so much while having so much fun. You're basically constantly dying until you figure out the right route and the right actions to take. Fun! :-)
Quick reviews on some other games. Fallout 3 is nice, and not what I had expected. Heavy Rain was bad. Assassin's Creed disappointing. Oh, and I'm dying to play SimCity 4, but they don't sell the bloody game anymore...
So, how are you guys doing ?
