I've finished "In a dark wood wandering" which is a very well-written story about factional strife in medieval feudal France in the early 15th century. I am now going to read an old classic that I've heard about for years but still haven't taken the time to read - Steve McConnells "Code Complete". I'm looking forward to it - he really knows how to write books that are both educating but also entertaining to read. If it wasn't because he obviously has deep knowledge of the subjects he writes about you might be tempted to call him a giant fuckwit :-)

Right now I really feel like starting to write on a a medieval strategy game incorporating elements of feudal obligations, trade and factional strife. The problem is that I know myself too well to believe that I would be able to see it through before I loose my enthusiasm. So, if you're reading this, are very dedicated and are also a world-class graphician, then send me a mail ;-) (like that would ever happen)

I hacked together a small basic set of dx8 sprite/texture classes, and it's just great how much the dx api has improved since earlier versions :-)
