My other half started working yesterday. The last time was, I think, way back in 1996, though. The kids are already capable, but there are still some other things to adjust in order to make things work. Just a couple more effort and things may turn out well.


Made several steps already in setting up the name. Initially thought of videntur but it was already taken. Then went for dominum but decided it was too oldie. Maybe Super String might be a good one, though.

Also wrote an article about game development.


Been spending some time coding the API. Adding classes on top of the existing classes. Was able to setup a simple event model, similar to message passing. No documentation has been made yet in rationalizing the API. Might start working on it next week.


Found three garden variety worms. Took them out of their hiding place and placed them in one of the rose container. I figured worms might actually help the roses by keeping the soil loose and soft. Anyway, it's only an experiment.

Tale #2

Now, it's time to read about the second tale titled The Man With The Coconuts.

Operation Daybreak

It's unfortunate hostages have to suffer under the hands of armed bandits. While the rules of engagement tend to protect the hostages from harm, it was not the case for this operation as hostages died in the heat of the battle.
The Associated Press reported that the Light Reaction Company, a US-trained unit equipped with silencers, night vision equipment and high-tech headsets, had fanned secretly throughout the area of coconut groves and farms in recent days after solid indications that at least one of the Burnhams was being held near there.

AFP spokesperson Brig. Gen. Eduardo Purificacion said four of the bandits were killed and seven soldiers were injured, four seriously, in the firefight. [1]
