today is IT day at work (it appears)

item 1: computer shutting down immediately after booting.
not the memory.
not a virus.
one of the mounting brackets on the cpu heatsink had snapped. juryrigged a paperclip mount for that corner and it seems to be running. :)

item 2:primary disk failure; device not found
the hard drive does indeed seem to be physically missing. the guy who uses that computer is on vacation, out of the country. I'm guessing he took it with him?

So. How was YOUR day?

Really, now? ;)

I was getting Item 1 a couple days ago. The fact that the motherboard fan was not spinning was a red herring. Turns out that line voltage in my new house is low enough that the PS can't support all the drives. Unplug and function!

painful!

have you poked around skwerms.org at all? I have some notes (very few. very, VERY few.) on the game we were discussing long, long ago.

along with a half dozen other games I want to write. All requiring an understanding of 3d game development. which is, unfortunately, towards the bottom of my priorities at the moment. though I'm constantly reminding myself. I think. Somewhat.

Even had ideas for a 3d version of a very well-known addictive game just last night.

And here I can't even keep up with work (kinda). La. La la la. Wondering if it would be stupid to try and "borrow" the quake engine to write things in.

Probably.

Probably.

Wandered around a while back, but could never find your notes.

No sense reinventing the wheel. The Quake engine is pretty decent, though the maps need to be compiled/optimized and there isn't much ability to change stuff around after then. There are probably a couple good open-source engines out there to start from...
