Very occupied

It seems I "forgot" my pre-July post, but I have my reasons that I like to think of as being good enough. The day after I returned from a two week long trip to Sweden (I joined the bachelor party and was the best man at my friend's wedding and I attended NCNP2011), I spent 3 weeks working ~9-22 in a workshop. I had never done any kind of metal work before these weeks, but now I know a bit about milling, drilling and "lathing" iron, steel and anticorodal, plus how to shape old crappy drill bits by hand. 5 years university physics for machining metal!

Alas, haven't had the chance to indulge in a lot of recreational activities. I took two days off Thu-Fri last week which was nice, I finally had enough time to even feel like cleaning my apartment! Fired up Mass Effect again, in a desperate attempt to like it. I got almost twice as far as last time, I just had to throw it away after that. Largest botchup in gaming history ever, it could have been sooo grandiose...

I am currently writing "producing" code rather than "academic" code for FoF, there's been a few screenshots and movies the last week. Pondering about the project layout while waiting for discussions with the other team members. There are a bunch of huge stray art files in the repo which I want to strip away, working on that already.

Why don't the Japanese build guitar amps as good as Fujigen guitars? When I'm back in Gothenburg, I _will_ get an amp one way or another. I have also started following a new rule which is really taxing, but forces me to think very differently while playing: no shredding. No exceptions.

That's it for now, I will have to write up another post in less than two weeks, gotta leave some material until then!
