|Japan adventure time!!
(21 Mar 2013 at 10:20)
|Hello! Today I am starting my first real on-purpose vacation ever, a 2.5 week trip to Japan. I've traveled a lot for conferences and work and weddings and stuff, but never really Just Cuz. So that is cool. I probably won't really have Internet or phone, but it's not like I update this thing more than once a month anyway.|
I'm going to be gone for SIGBOVIK this year, but I did spend about 4 months on a secret project which I'm eager to show off! I recorded a video explanation and demo for the conference which I'll post here once it passes and I can find Internet. Or go to the conference if you're in Pittsburgh... It's always a good time!
|Cool, enjoy! You deserve it for working so hard.
I stopped by because I'm listening to AAD-24 and reminiscing. This album is actually even better than I remembered.
|Dear Tom, enjoy Japan. You know Carl Meister is living in Tokyo now?|
|I really enjoyed your playfun/learnfun video. Great job!
|I thought your program was great. I am wondering if it can handle the game Battletoads ;).|
|Can your program even see the dots in Pac Man, or are they only present in the PPU's 2K RAM (which you didn't mention being snapshotted in your description)?|
|Very interesting video! This looks incredibly fun to work on. |
|I just saw the boing boing article on your video/paper. Congrats! I love how sigbovik is described like a real academic conference! |
|Dear Tom, I guess you must have been loving your japanese experiences and enjoyed your trip & have had a lot fun! (My husband currently is learning japanese, I guess I should ask him what those words above might mean...?)
BTW: Do you still remember your game called "Escape"? ;-) I'd love you to take a look at it! We're currently (team-)working on some new kind of creating levels, and I think you should just step in and take a look at what we've been doing so far.
Love and hugs MM
I took a peek at your video - incredibly interesting research, and thoroughly enjoyed your "tongue in cheek" commentary.
All the best in moving your research forward!
|achieved some interesting results with your research, will be sending you some stuff soon! =D
All the Best,
|Tom think your your playfun/learnfun video and your paper research are really great.
This thing you are creating maybe used for something usefull if you think about it.
Let me congratulate you and congratulate you again
|Tom, I like the approach you took to making your program. How do you think it would work playing the stock market? |
|On a scale from "I want my time back now" to "ZOMG! Reading this changed my life, I'm quitting my job ASAP," your paper was a solid 8. I am happy to see that you're still working on interesting things and look forward to more.|
