My wonderful Meg kitty.

(no subject)

Fizz and I got this wacky game. It's like an escher painting in 3D.

It's a plastic globe with a teensy track and a metal ball in it. The globe has a plastic track. You put the ball on the track and roll it along the track.

And you move the ball by twisting the globe around.

The track twists and turns and inverts and has jumps and it's missing sides at points and so on. It's hard and takes a steady hand, but man is it cool!


Also: Project: Space Station, one of my favoritest games ever has been successfully archived. I will be able to play it ANYTIME! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Although I'm not doing the real grunt work of this project (relsqui has), it's immensely satisfying when something that I dearly love has the bits lifted from aging disk material to a hard disk.

It's also tremendously frustrating when something doesn't work. I should have done this years ago.
