I have been getting a lot more mail about my Blogger/Atom/RSS/MagpieRSS tutorial recently. Most are to say thanks, but some with questions. To that end I've updated the guide to add a little more detail since it seems to be helping quite a few people out there.
Full Sail is still going well. It has been harder this month I think, but I'm doing pretty well with my grades, and that's what matters.
I went to Disney Quest at the weekend, which for those that don't know is essentially a big arcade with some virtual reality rides. It is billed as an indoor theme park, and while that may be a little over the top, it is still a good way to kill a few hours. I haven't been there for ages, so it was good to see they had updated some of the games, but it would be nice to see a greater number with a bit more variety. I haven't seen a decent new arcade machine in a long time. Rocky's Arcade doesn't do badly with their games like the full size F-Zero cabinet, but I have been dying to play a game I once played in a GameWorks. It was a Virtua Cop style affair, but with firemen. You had to hold a fire hose as your controller and put out the fires to advance through the building, like House of the Dead. I remember it being a Sega game (hence all the Sega references in describing it!) but haven't had a chance to play it since.
While driving back from Disney Quest I managed to have a car accident with a Lexus RX300 which was less than fun, but that's what a long session of racing games in an arcade must do to me!
