I dropped a bunch of money this weekend on a new receiver...it's nice. No more running home entertainment on the stereo I've owned since I was a sophmore in high school...I've got some real equipment now! Whoopie! Time to get a subwoofer and a center channel...Muhahaha.
I scored a copy of Clive Barker's Undying and played it for a while last night. Excellent game! I don't care what STM says, I can certainly feel the Clive influence. And...as much as I hate to admit it...certain parts have actually scared me. The down side is that the thing is pretty intensive and my PC is under par. I guess I'll dick with the configuration and see if I can get it to run a bit smoother.
I finished my first entry into the 5k web design contest. I haven't submitted it yet because I'm not sure they have solidified everything for the 2001 contest. Check it out in art section...it's titled "authoring deconstructed".
Newly discovered fact: Anybody that prefers a trackball to a mouse shouldn't be allowed to own or operate a computer.
Is it really a coincidence that the large building with the Purina logo is dangerously close to the animal shelter?
I managed to get a hold of the Ohgr album "Welt" before its release. I still haven't listened to the whole thing yet, but it is strange. Not really at all what I expected, but I think I like it. Very popish, very technoish (for lack of a better term), but certainly interesting.
Well, I've done quite a bit more work on the serial servo controller. I've finished implementing the pin/timer interrupt combination for handling incoming RS232. The method works and has been successfully incorporated into the servo control code.
Note to self:
"Interrupt flag bits get sent when an interrupt condition occurs regardless of the state of its corresponding enable bit or the global enable bit, GIE." - taken directly from the PIC data sheet.
I could have saved mucho timeo by reading that in the first place. :)
Unfortunately, the servo still jitters occasionally. Even when turned off. Obviously, this shouldn't happen. I'm off to more troubleshooting...
