After some practice, I’ve found that I can play the drums in Rock Band on Easy on a few of the less difficult songs without immediately failing. This isn’t exactly great, but what the heck. Rome wasn’t burned in a day.

Finished Accelerando. That book has an unusual number of in-jokes that only people who have been deeply involved in computers and Usenet will understand, but it should still be accessible to the average science-fiction fan. Main problem is that Stross isn’t that good at endings. Everything was pretty good until the end, which had absolutely no catharsis at all.

I have a whole bunch of stuff to do at work, as well as the usual social stuff.  So if there’s no entry, or an entry without a picture in the next few days, it’s because I’m too busy.
