It's still warm out there. And dry. Really dry. I get the feeling that when winter finally hits, it's going to hit *hard*. Then again, maybe this region is just slowly turning into a desert.

Saw a link to TRONtium over on Stephen's page. It's a cool little lightcycles/snakes clone for Linux/SVGALib, with sound (which I still don't have working on my machine) and multiplayer support. I've always sucked at this kind of game, but they can still be fun, and this is one of the better versions I've seen.

Sunday afternoon:
I read Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets last night. Not bad at all. Fun, easy reading, an enjoyable plot, and some great characters.

I think I might go on a Young Adult / Children's Fantasy binge. The other 2 Harry Potter books look good, as does The Golden Compass, and it's been years since I re-read C.S. Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia or the Dark is Rising sequence by Susan Cooper...

Saturday afternoon:
It's the 13th of November, and it's 85 degrees out there. Something's wrong with this picture.

I'm sitting in my living room, with various relatives, watching Nebraska beat K-State. I really have no understanding of football. The basic concept seems simple enough, but everything beyond "move the ball to the other guy's end of the field" pretty much escapes me.

And now it's halftime, and everyone's falling asleep.
