Out of days off...

Well, I'm officially out of days off... I had a few good days to go out and play, but now it's getting down to crunch time.

We work 7 days a week now at Bungie, and the pressure is on for the release candidates. so here is my past week in review...

I had Saturday and Sunday off last weekend... and then had the 4th off...

I went hiking, and then had a barbecue at the house... we made chicken, and I got myself a steak for dinner... new york strip... mmm it was good!

Jaani, Ev, and I all got matching shirts and went to go watch the fireworks... but I guess I picked the only park in the area that didn't allow dogs, so we ended up going up to the top of the hill I always used to watch the fireworks from before... but it was a good day!

After that it was pretty much back to work. I finally got just about everything working right for my Nokia 770, except I can't actually see people who are using aim... but they can see me and I can talk to them with no proplems.

For those of you who don't know what a 770 looks like... which is pretty much everybody... here is a picture.

It is an Internet tablet. which means it will connect to any Wifi hotspot... or if I had a subscription to internet access on my cell phone it would connect through that... it is pretty cool... I added some personal information management software so now it works like a PDA too. I just ordered a 2GB memory card for it, and I'm waiting for it to come in the mail.

Other than that... it's time to work all day, and sometimes have time to sleep at night. I hear we aren't too far from 16 hour days, and that means that I'll be looking for somewhere closer to work to sleep at night... I have a couple Ideas, but I really don't know yet... I'll just have to wait and see what happens.

anyway... I gotta get to sleep... I worked today, and I work again tomorrow... and the next day, and the next day... until you see Halo 3 in stores... in September... at the end of the month... well, I'll probably start getting days off again in August, but we'll find out soon enough.

Until I find some more time...

Later,

P.S. I'll probably update a bit from work... but who knows.
