Lately, I have been putting quite a bit of my discretionary time toward a computer game project, Miniature Warfare. It is a computerized version of a table-top strategy wargame called MechWarrior. You might want to check it out if you are into that sort of thing.
I have also read a number of good books since my last post. I recently finished reading The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy for the first time. I am pleased to know that there will be a movie coming out in the near future based on it. It is really a niche classic, and I would say it is required reading for anyone who wants to be taken seriously in Nerddom.
I went to see the movie National Treasure this week as well. I thought it was fun to watch, although I would have preferred something more epic, like Indiana Jones. The musical score especially bothered me; it reminded me of the kind of music one sees on a television drama. My wife, Chelsea, was less critical of the flick than I, but we both feel that we are better for watching it.
