||Better offers you can't refuse

|The day began with the eternal quest of how to spend my allowance. I've been thinking of getting some comic anthologies, but I wanted to check that this would be the best purchase, so I surfed around on Amazon for a bit. None of the DS or GBA games jumped out as "must haves", and after the recent spending spree I'm not surprised. DVDs are a game of chance as they may or may not be playable on our equipment.
I ended up visit O'Reilly Media to see if any of their programming resource books looked good. One did; they wanted $30 plus shipping for it. Amazon however wanted only $8 counting shipping. Thus I bought both the shiny new book on programming and volumes I to IV of the comics I was thinking of buying originally. It turns out Amazon has a special going on those comics: buy 3 volumes, get the 4th volume free! Plus I got Super Saver Shipping on the order. That'll be some fun reading when they get here.
The remainder of my day was spent working on Necros Cavern.
In other news the fire alarm is acting weird. It went off during the evening and whined for a moment just a little bit ago.
Two Pixar shorts to round out the day:
For the Birds
