lots of realworld stuff done: cleaned house, finished taxes, finished fafsa, changed oil in car, fixed brakelights in car, fixed odor in car ;-) ...

it's spring break and i'm expecting lots of progress (and hopefully stopping points) on lots of my projects. and some extra time to enjoy being with my family.

question. what is a good name for my software project that does (dave winer's idea of) xml-rpc resource subscription/notification? i'm at a loss. if anybody's creative juices are flowing better than mine, it'd be super appreciated. thanks!

here's some quick, off the cuff ideas:

  • smokesignal
  • csana (content subscription and notification architecture)

argh! i can't think of anything i like... oh well. i'm sure something will come.

after some discussion with my father-in-law about back in the day gaming (he hadn't heard of myst), and a cool slashdot article regarding classic sierra games, i've had a great time remembering my beginings in the world of computer gaming. man oh man was it soooooo much fun back then. gaming now makes me pine for earlier days. no crappy "run and shoot" (tm) stuff because the hardware wouldn't do it. there was a lot more imagination required, a greater dependence upon the storyline. and we had to walk uphill both ways... but in all seriousness - please god - deliver us from doom-esqe gaming... i remeber a few years back i played a game i *really* liked. i guess it'd be just a prettied up incarnation of those previous sierra adventure genre games. here's a link to the game at amazon. the last express. if anybody has any recommendations on a similar game, i'd love to waste some hours on it. :)

dreaming: wouldn't it be nice to play (commercial, and high quality) games natively on linux.... :) maybe someday i'll ditch wine and all the headaches.

gotta do stuff.
