2003 - Yikes!

OK, here's the setup. I'll have the whatsnew.html page up for viewing purposes. I now have an RSS feed as well - here's the link. The year-based HTML pages will still be around for archival purposes - you'll note that the RSS feed points to links in these pages. This may not be the best setup, but at least I now have a feed for you to consume. I did this all via TextPad just to get used to it, but I can see how using tools will make this process easier!

Anyway, here's an update on my life. It's been a very stressful week, but at least the immediate financial threat is going. I was let go from my former employer Monday. It wasn't suprising, but it was still a shock to the system. That's pretty much all I'll say about it here - I just want to move on to bigger and better things.

Fortunately, my good friends at Magenic have brought me back on board, so I don't have to worry about money and insurance. I'll have to travel for a while - I'll be out in California for 3 months to start. The initial project specs sound cool - once I get on the project I'll see what it's really all about.

During this 1-week "vacation" I finished off "Splinter Cell". It's a very cool game. I liked the fact that you had to restrain yourself; you couldn't just blindly going in and start killing people. Hiding in shadows is essential at times, and you have to hide the bodies to limit the alarms. I'd definitely recommend it for any XBox owners out there.
