    Nor do I, but it's bad on this album, ringing ears after listening to one song bad... Shame, I really like some of the songs on this album too.

    Still working on my clone version of Midtown Madness 2. Physics are working now (they need a lot of tweaking though), among other things.

    Summary of work: Code, code, code, and even more code

    and UI code

    Another receiver on the bench a Sansui 2000, this time it was no sound from one channel and low distorted audio with a hum from the other, no sound problem was a bad solder joint around a wire, distorted sound was due to a failed transistor on the driver amp board. There where also a few very poorly done bodge repairs done to this amp in the past which I had to un-bodge.
    Previous tech replaced the right channel output transistors and driver transistor without replacing the left channel components so the gain is a little different on both channels (one is louder).
    I also replaced any out of spec transistors with new low ESR Panasonic FC capacitors.

    Last week or the week before went to didney worl for spring break, it was fun for the most part, nothing I haven't seen / been on before.

    This past Friday I got into a vehicle accident. Couldn't slow down fast enough to the halted traffic getting on/off the interstate and I hit the back corner of some guy's Lexus, which in turn caused me to pop up on two wheels and tip over. Couldn't prevent the tip over, that was out of my hands. I'm perfectly fine however, thank god I cleaned my car out a few days prior. Car is totaled, I was at cause for the accident, and I have to be at court 3 days before I graduate in May. Other than that I live a boring life.

    I am trying to hunt down the Freeman a US-model (NTSC/QWERTY) Commodore Amiga A1200. This should be fun.

    In other news, EarthBound is dead. I'm starting a new story. Where this journey will lead, I have little clue. Any ideas?

    Worked on pathfinding and debug drawing code today, as well as particle stuff.

    I can now draw boxes, spheres, lines, arrows, and rays in realtime in the game view. The pathfinding stuff still has some way to go, I need to introduce an angle penalty for choosing the next road, so it'll try and get the fastest path, but not neccessarily the shortest

    (The green line here is what the pathfinder chose as the ideal route to the bridge)

    I'm so tired. I may have ate too much sugar this morning (m&s percy pigs are gooood), and am currently crashed.

    Dissertation is due in on Thursday, only 2000 more words until I am in the recommended range, need more references. Had to demonstrate my OpenCL software today, that was a little stressful, but went alright. Also need to demonstrate PhysX project on Friday. Then a procedural generation assignment due in next Thursday, then exams, then freedom. Until I get a job, that is.

    I really want to faceplant my keyboard right now.

    Well, I guess this brightened up my day a little bit. Results of my research project seem to be generally significant (essentially: GUI vs Text based level editors, what do people prefer).

    And equally nice is that the significance varies enough for me to write a decent amount about. Which is great.

    I guess the forms also decided this post was significant enough to not append it to the previous one :p
