Kids left friday, w00tar!

Since then been catching up on missed work, not fun.

Went to Costco, was interesting there. Some lady with two brats she was pushing around in a cart. Had a DVD player for them to watch a movie while she shopped. At one point the girl started using the cart as a jungle gym, and the mom just stopped the cart and started yelling "If you fall and get hurt, I'm not taking you to the hosipital again because you did something stupid". A little bit later, the boy runs over to the games and picks up Gran Turismo 3, saying "I want this!". The mom tells him "if you put that down, I'll let you play Grand Theft Auto when we get home" (and the boy is like 5). A little bit later, some older lady (presumably the grandma) is pushing the kids around, mom no where in sight, and the boy is running around waving GT3 up in the air. THAT is the problem with America, and not fucking video game companies the liberals and Jack "I see Penises" Thompson would want you to believe. Later, at the pharmacy saw a guy who looked eerily like if Hitler was a hyper geek. Wierd.

Afterwards, went to Macaroni Grill, because had gift certificate. Man they sucked. Typical St Louis style italian (which St Louis has alot of Italians) has nice and creamy sauces. Everything was really heavy on olive oil and watery cream sauce that they skimped on. Ordered Chicken Fetticini Alfredo, an easy dish, and when I got it the damn thing was basically noodles and strips of chicken in olive oil. Also, heavy on pepper with everything. Even the bread tasted peppery by itself. And what did they have to dip your bread into? Olive oil with pepper sprinkled in it. Fuck…

On the good news front, Linux Games mentioned us on the front page the other day about how we went opensource, and because of that, we've had some help with people trying to get it ported. One guy even says he has it running under linux. Really, for the most part, the big work is switching to SDL_mixer instead of BASS, because BASS is Win32 only.

Tery had 10 babies last night. Dumpling just flogged the shit out of my leg, more bleeding. I want to kill that bird.
