Let's take the title in reverse order:

xkey version 2.0 - my daughter , well okay different gender but still a revision of me that's for sure - she's trouble with a CaP TTTTTTTT   finally passed out asleep - 2 yr olds should be sleeping more than 9.5 hours a day shouldnt they?  lil dynamo like i was!

Bobby Fischer died today - wonder if that means he can return to the US now without facing charges for that last chess match ....

and there's a new book out "Exploiting Online Games: Cheating Massively Distributed Systems" by Hoglund & McGraw

Hoglund's done some research I respect so I expect the book is probably pretty good [not dissing McGraw just havent read any research by him is all].  Amazon has a good price on it right now http://www.amazon.com/Exploiting-Online-Games-Distributed-Addison-Wesley/dp/0132271915/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/102-0938297-5334555?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1194014805&sr=8-1

I've perused the TOC and will be buying the book - just dont think I have the time to read it right now ....  still want to poke around  Game Programming Gems 6 and code up some of my combinatorics research ideas ...and sleep - i do so like to sleep a few hours a day

oh but hey this is a gaming site right ... mmo?   I logged some decent hours in GW today

and yeah yeah it's cheesey its linear  - it's not random enough - it's not WoW no raids no this no that - yeah but when u've got a kid and like to solve problems ...sometimes the last thing u want is to solve a ton of problems or grind in a game!   GW is kind of like fun mindless playing - i dont have to remember a ton of details from one week to another; once my kiddle is older then I'll want a lot more challenging MMO

I'll be re-upping my LOTRO (last time i played was release month) to see how it's changed. i've contemplated re-upping my EQ2 but .... i've only so much time to play each week  and i'm really looking forward to warhammer

black hole sun ..........

I have a two year old also. Mine seems determined to keep a schedule of her own that's as inconvenient as possible for me. 

 Congratulations on surviving another day! (I feel like that at the end of every day. LOL)
