Yes, ladies and gentlemen. I’m still alive and breathing, thank you very much. Anja was not and axe murder(ess) after all, at least she didn’t bring it out the first time we met. She was actually quite a nice girl, someone I certainly wouldn’t mind meeting again later. And I’ve got the impression she wouldn’t mind either, which is good. I don’t know when, but it’s hopefully some time in the not so distant future.
After eight hours of more or less interesting speeches and lectures yesterday, all the people in my department went to Kampen Bistro and enjoyed a better dinner and some good wine. It wasn’t that expensive either, I think - actually I don’t know because everything was paid for - so if you’re looking for a good place to dine, I suggest you give it a try. I’m certainly not going there again, but that’s my own fault: I did something I’ve never done before and probably won’t do ever again. When we left the place, I wrote my name and phone number on a piece of paper and gave to a girl I’ve had my eyes on parts of the night - I caught her eyes a couple of times, too. I’ve got no idea why I gave her my number, it’s seriously not my style. Maybe I’ve started to play my desperate cards. I don’t expect to hear anything of course, she looked pretty damned surprised when I came over to her table. The 6-7 other women by the table also looked rather shocked. Screw that. No guts, no glory, right?
Some great news for nerds: A demo of Homeworld 2 has been released. I love this game, I bought both the original Homeworld and the Cataclysm add-on. Hallvard sent me the link to the demo on Thursday, but I’ve not had the time to test it until today. It’s great and then some, I can’t wait for the game to be released. I’ve got one problem, though. My ATI graphics card is not really supported, I need to install new drivers, and there are no new drivers for the 7500 that came with my Dell (of course), so the game crashes at random. But that’s just an extra challenge. I’ve got problems with every ATI card I’ve ever had, so I should’ve bought a laptop with a GeForce card instead. You live, you learn.
Today’s rather easy riddle: The heading of this entry is taken from a movie you’ve probably seen. But what movie? Online translation services are lame.
