||Back on the grids
Posted on November 20th, 2007
|Today was a mostly aimless day. I'm back on the World Community Grid after the week-long hiatus. One of the main reasons is that I'm spending a lot of time with the computer just running on screen saver. Part of the reason for this is that I'm playing Chocobo Tales, but I'm also a pacer and thus pacing to and fro (or fro and to if I want a change of pace) for part of the day. I've also joined Rosetta&home, a project similar to the WCG but with a very one-track agenda. Rosetta&home focuses solely on combating disease (Anthrax, Malaria, Alzheimer's, Herpes, HIV and two types of Cancer). While there is a Team UserFriendly.org for that project, it's largely empty and pretty much ignored.
Part of the day was spent messing with various projects, as usual. One of the new developments is that the genre for one game under development has changed from RPG/Fantasy to Edutainment.
The only other news I have is that my win-loss record for Chocobo Tales is an abysmal 7-19.
Links for today include a blog, a YouTube video and a news article.
Two Phrases that Destroyed American Culture.
Walk Score, a site that rates how good your place is for walking around. Note: it seems the information it uses is often rather inaccurate. Your Mileage May Vary.
The YouTube video Go Around Twice if You're Happy documents how people react to unusual signs.
Lastly, Sesame Street has veered from its roots.
