Had a real real bad week, but it's getting better.
Trying to get into project mode! My roommate and I have another video game project to work on for a while and then abandon... He's been working quite a lot on it, though. I won't say anything about it for fear of somehow jinxing it.
One of my jobs is to write the music system. Actually, he'll be doing all the boring DirectSound stuff... I am working on a file format, parser, and a SML MIDI file library for importing my tunes. Hopefully the SML stuff will one day be incorporated into a file-formats library so nobody ever has to write this code again (yes, that fun!).
Otherwise I'm biding my time, TAing the password-protected 15-312 and waiting to hear back from graduateschools.

Well, just a week left of winter vacation. I thought I'd be working on projects like snoot.org, aphasia, and webqueue. But, as usual with my fickle ambitions, I've found myself working on completely different stuff.
I got a set of oil paints for christmas, so I'm learning just how long it takes for Cerulean Blue to dry...
On the programming front, I've just learned how to create VST Plugins. It is pretty fun, and might result in some fun new sounds for my variousmusicalprojects. Marc 3 and I are creating a set of anti-plugins known as SUPER DESTROY-fx. Page to hit the interweb soon.
At work we are learning the ridiculously tepid Microsoft VirusBasic Script to deploy some e-solutions. Check out what my search engine queries look like:
Search the web for [ASP VBS IIS SQL DSN tutorial_______] [OK]
Yet despite all the acronyms, it's easy enough to almost be fun. Maybe I'll learn some lessons for aphasia prototype 2 (actually, probably not).
Of course, I've found time to hang out with my pals, advance the state of the art with Spastic Moose, sled into some trees, eat some sushi and fancy pizza, and help finish a 100th Comic.
