the final match of the guild wars world championship is tonight! the winning guild takes home $50,000 and second place fetches $25,000. not too shabby for playing a computer game! if you’ve got guild wars you can watch the match in game by clicking observe on the menu. it starts tonight at 7:00pm PST.
every programmer should start his or her career at microsoft. this is because once you leave microsoft you can join the microsoft alumni network (assuming you leave on good terms) and get microsoft software from the company store for cheap for the rest of your life. speaking of which visual studio 2005 is pretty sweet. it’s a shame all the refactoring stuff doesn’t work in c++ though.

i adore horror movies and really love movies with scenes on airplanes
so i really really wanted to see this one but missed it when it was

everytime 3dsmax crashes i’m reminded of autodesk’s purchase of alias. my prediction after the acquisition was that autodesk would kill or sell 3dsmax in two years or so. it’s got some nice features, but everyone who’s used it (and especially those who’ve written plugins) knows that max is a mess.
autodesk doesn’t need two competing 3d modelling applications anymore than microsoft needs competing office products. max is gunna die. i just hope they move maxscript over to maya.
