flying pigSunday in Tempe, at about 1:45pm, it hailed for about 5 minutes. The hailstones were tiny, and melted fairly quickly, but it was still unusual.

I’ve been downloading a bunch of game demos for the Xbox arcade. “R-Type Dimensions” does some interesting things to the classic “R-Type” and “R-Type 2″ games’ graphics, but has apparently not altered the gameplay otherwise. “Feeding Frenzy” is also interesting. “Galaga” was a neat idea, but I don’t know if I could get into its gameplay. I suppose I should try the demo of “On the Rain-Slicked Precipice of Darkness” next, since it’s been forever since I’ve played a new RPG.

And they’re digging up the parking lot a bit to the west. Looks like something went wrong with the sewer system. I’m glad I don’t live in the affected building.
