a few things today: client B got in touch with me this morning, something wrong with the source code i sent them a few weeks ago but never heard back from them. at first i didn't believe it but then after checking some e-mails i realized i'd made some changes months later. good news: found a newer version of the source code. bad news: it still wasn't the latest one, and i ended up having to spend some time debugging and updating the code to fix a few bugs i'd done 2 years ago. since i had all my machines on, i took the time to collect some samples of my code work for a job interview tomorrow afternoon. it's still early and i don't want to think too much about it until it's more definite. a perm job would definitely free me up financially, but i'm grown accustomed to my freelancing lifestyle.
my father turns 60 years old tomorrow so i decided to make some flan. not sure what's happening tomorrow because he has to work, but maybe he'll close the cafe early and my family will go out for dinner. when it comes to birthdays my family doesn't get very sentimental but 60 seems like a milestone. i added some cinnamon to the flan i made, not sure how it's going to taste (maybe like a thanksgiving pie).
with 60+ containers of plants, it took me nearly an hour to water them all. i've been watering by dipping them into a bucket of warm tap water and letting the water soak up from the bottom until it nearly reaches the top. i don't know why i do it this way, maybe because i think it's a deeper method of watering.
intermittently today i've been playing hellgate: london. it plays very similar to diablo (no wonder, it's made by the same people) and just as addictive. like diablo, it focuses a lot on monster killing, exploring randomly generated environments, customizing your chracter, and looking for treasures. nothing more satisfying than dispatching a boss monster and then sifting through its remains picking up all the goodies. unlike diablo, instead of an isometric view it's more of a 3rd person shooter POV. and while diablo is set in a fantasy world (think barbarians and sorcerers), hellgate has elements of both fantasy and science fiction (demons have taken over modern day london and futuristic templar knights are humanity's only salvation against hell on earth). i'll try to score some screenshots for those who are curious.
