|I planned on spending the day working on comics and code. Instead, I spent a good portion of the day attempting to keep this computer running. Numerous problems cropped up, followed by it being unable to boot, caused a lot of delay and frustration.
Hopefully things are going to be back to normal for a while.
In any event, I finished the first comic and tweaked Din somewhat. Tomorrow I'll see about getting the other two comics done.
I'm still trying different FPSs. I found a bunch on Download.com, unfortunately I can't get a decent download speed ( ~14 hours to download less than 700 MB? No way) . So I'll try again tomorrow. I've also asked UF for ideas and got a number of interesting leads. One of the better games is Sauerbraten. It plays well and the difficulty can be toned to reasonable degrees. Amusingly, "sauerbraten" is German pot roast -- descriptive name for a game where people shoot each other into paste. The blood effect can be disabled (which I do), so it's not as bad as it sounds.
Lastly, this sums up a lot of people...
