OK, so maybe I should be a little less definitive when I make statements such as “I don’t see Be, Inc. getting bought out any time soon.” Specifically, Be, Inc. is now actively looking for ways of getting bought out, or otherwise rescuing themselves from totally running aground. They still have six months’ worth of venture capital, of course, but still.

:sigh: Well, if Be goes down the tubes, then the world won’t come to an end. I’ll still use BeOS, as long as I can. And I can move over to AtheOS, or Linux, or Windows, or whatever. It will have been fun, anyway.

It’s a gorgeous day in the nation’s capital. It’s about 80 degrees, with a near-constant light breeze. I wish I could spend the day puttering around my garden, inhaling the sweet scent of the flowers and just generally goofing off.

But there’s work to do.

Oooooh. Toycom is coming out with new Samurai X/Rurouni Kenshin figurines, featuring figures from both the OVA series and the TV series. Figures.com has a complete photo series. Man, those look cool. From the OVA, they’ve got Kenshin and Okita (the young, sorta-equivalent of Kenshin on the “other side”), and from the TV show, they’ve got Kenshin, Kaoru, and Sanosuke. They also have a character named Hajime, whom I’m not familiar with.

No work on Wine recently, though I did work out some ideas for the ending during my ride in to work. I’ll have to note them down somewhere. Basically, since the series revolves around pity (true pity), the ending really needs to deal with that issue. So, I’m planning to have Sarah show pity on one of the scientists. During my next writing session, I’ll try to get that written.
