Today was a super cool day. I woke up around 6:30am and began checking emails and a bunch of deviantART related stuff flooded in, all of which was very fun. I answered some emails, wrote some fresh emails and headed down stairs around 8:30am to make some breakfast I had a toasted croissant with some ham and cheese, which was just fantastic. I had earlier received an email about a possible job, so I retouched my resume and sent of a letter of interest and all-in-all it sounds rather promising. I don’t want to get ahead of myself, as I often do, but I am a little confident and I might just be moving to Sydney early next year.

The rest of my day was riddle with house work and yard work, along with a few designs and some chatting on dAmn. It was a reasonably pleasant day (read: it wasn’t so hot I felt like I was dying for once), so most of it went rather quick and before I knew it I was heading out to see the guys at the studio. Ryan, Dessy and I played a few games of Counterstrike: Source before I got bored and came home (only to play them online again anyway), where I got my inspiration!

I was Counterstriking (not a word, bite me) away and I kept ALT-TAB’ing out to see who was trying to talk to me on MSN. ‘You know what would rock,’ I asked myself. ‘A second computer right there where I could chat when I am gaming.’ And then it started. I busted Archilles out of his slumber (disconnecting a user in the process, oopsies) and dragged it to my bedroom. After around an hour of re-cabling everything and running a second network cable behind all my furniture, we were in business. The result? Judge for yourself:

    Okay, it’s kinda scary that you networked up Archilles just so you could chat while playing CS. You have raised your level of geekiness (not a word either, so bite me too) another couple of notches.

    I think you’re gonna need a new desk soon.

    Did you know I recently got back into CounterStrike via Half Life 2? We must get together for a game so you can camp out and shoot me in the back a few times.
