Jul 20 1999

Wow! A lot’s happened lately.

First off, Be, Inc. (makers of that BeOS thing I keep takling about) has gone public. It started at $6 per share and closed up 34%. I’m getting shares as soon as my check goes through DLJdirect, which should be tomorrow.

The good folks at iD released Quake II for BeOS, which is a good thing. It’s a free download, but all they give you are the executable files; you need to buy the rest of it at the store. Which I’m going to do…tomorrow. I’m downloading the BeOS bit now. ;-)

I’ve put together an extremely simple demo animation using Lost Marble‘s Moho, and tossed a link to it on the Other Space home page. I’ve got a screenshot, and you can download it as a 367KB .avi file. I put it together in, oh, just under an hour. Imagine being able to put together an animation that quickly and easily. Cool.

My relatives (aunt and cousin) came in on Sunday, so there’s not really much to report in my life beyond that. We’ve gone out to dinner, chatted, etc. Today we went in to D.C. and walked around the harbor and Georgetown. They’ve renovated the harbor, and all of the area is very nice to walk around in. ‘Twas a lot of fun.
