    Cook, sleep, drink, read, drive, play computer games, rpg's, socialise with my friends and try to keep them at the right sanity levels, watch TV, plan world domination that sort of thing, not necessarily in that order.

    and grumbling quietly about people who use E=mc^2, rather than E^2 = (mc^4)^2 + (pc)^2 and then saying things about the frames your referencing/relative to.

    Attempt to catch up on my reading (mostly Dark Tower-related books), running, going to the gym, video games, rpgs, the simpsons, eating, coming here, sleep, golf, um... that's about it

    To take this offtopic temporarily (you knew it was gonna happen), how is anachronox? I was thinking about picking it up - it looked cool.

    govtcheez - its quite a good rpg/adventure - had excellent reviews over here - i am not too far through it as trying to finish throne of bhaal first - graphics are good, plot is good though a bit slow at first - its worth playing but nowhere near the class of rpgs such as baldurs and planescape torment

    I never really liked BG... too hard to stay alive at the beginning. Planescape was great, tho... It's plot took me in more than anything since... hmm.... Wake Of the Ravager, I guess.

    The reviews for Anachronox were alright, here

    You have a wife Stoned_Coder? I thought you were 15. This place is too confusing.
    I compile code with:
    Visual Studio.NET beta2
