New laptop has me a little bit addicted to DAoC... but last night I got home after dinner/drinks with friends, and resisted the call for quite a while, doing chores around the house first, making sure everything was in order, and not being ignored. Once I was done with that, doublechecking that I was into my leisure time, I allowed myself some more time online. Laptop in front of TV with Buffy Season 4 DVDs is a dangerous combo, though. I'm glad I forced myself to do laundry and stuff last night before even starting up the electronics.
I also watched a little bit of Joseph Campbell and the Power of Myth on my Replay last night, recorded in August... It's been sitting there waiting to be watched for quite some time. I'm not sure I agree that all stories need follow his template, but it does seem like it would make a good template for, say, a game. I still have been only puttering about in that quarter, though. No writing done yet.
The other thing that looks very interesting is the Mono project by, um, "the Ximian division of Novell." I wish I could work on these kinds of developer tools in my job. Working with specifics just seems so... uninteresting, when there's still so much work to be done in general terms, to enable others to fill in their own specifics.
