What I'm reading now
Thanks to the fact that none of the three bookstores I've been to have the sequel to There Will be Dragons by John Ringo, I have now snapped up the next three Honor Harrington books to read on the plane rides. The next technical book I am planning to read (though I haven't bought it yet, so who knows) is Painless Project Management With Fogbugz.
What I'm playing now (besides UO. Duh.): Galactic Civilizations beta, and Katamari Damacy. (And in the I'm-harder-core-than-you department: what game finally gets me to break down and buy a bloody PS2? GTA3? Kingdom Hearts? Metal Gear Solid? No, it was KATAMARI! Maybe I'm not harder core than you.)
Oh and because I'm thinking of it now and probably won't remember later otherwise, someone remind me that I want to do an article on Python generators when I get back.
