Feb 01 2001

It’s 4:00 in the morning. I just spent several hours trying (unsuccessfully) to get a networked game of Quake2 going with Brennen. If Saalon had been online, we would have played off of his DSL connection, but he hopped offline just before we tried to play.

I then spent several more hours working intermittently on Mozart and Solar Conquest. And hey, I have a screenshot:

Time passes….

OK, it’s now very late in the day, so now I can safely describe the events of the day.

went to see Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon tonight, with the company. I was surprised to discover that it’s not really an action movie; it’s more of a romance (two romances, in fact) with characters who happen to be action heroes. Which is not to trivialize the action sequences; they were fantastic. Smooth, fast, deadly.

Unfortunately, only one other person came with me to the theater. I’ve been trying to organize regular movie nights for the company, but very few people have shown up whenever I’ve tried to do so. I’ll keep plugging away at it (one person mentioned that a lot of people had probably already seen CT, HG, which has been out for awhile).
