PS3 Gaming

Ladies and gentlemen, the Playstation 3 gaming experience, for me:

Seriously, every time I turn this thing on, it needs to shuffle off to the internet for a few hours to update itself.Perhaps it could download updates in the background; then I'd only need to wait the interminable 15 minutes for the update to install.

Interesting Times

The previous two weeks have been exhausting.I flew to Dublin for the Symposium on Computer Animation, arrived back in the states, and catapulted into a glass blowing intensive class -- five days of nothing but sleep, eat, glass.
Needless to say, progress on almost everything TCHOW-related has been minimal.I am inching the necklace server code forward; in fact, as it stands, the game can submit high scores and learn if they are new.What is needed, however, is a cleaner design -- all this net code is getting confusing! The plus side is that a correct design should basically "drop into" other projects.
Time is running short, and there is research that needs to be done.
