No, I haven’t gotten Quake II yet — I don’t know how much I’d play it. I never really got into Quake. I don’t really play computer games much anymore, though I don’t really know why. I guess my life is full enough right now.
I’ve spent some time browsing Elfwood recently. It’s an archive of work by amateur fantasy artists, and a lot of it is extremely good. I recommend the Top 250 list. I love fantasy art, and have done a bit of sketching myself. Don’t be surprised; I’m not that good. But maybe with some practice….
We had a good time with my relatives. I was, of course, working most of the time they were here, but we managed to hang out together for quite a bit. It’s nice to have relatives that you can talk to and have fun with.
I’m starting to get worried about my Be, Inc. stock — at the moment I’m in the hole $45 on it. Still, I’m confident it’ll make an upturn in a few weeks, or even months; it’s being mentioned everywhere, from U.S. News and World Report to the AST home page.
