Over a month and no talky...

Well, it's been quite a while since I've posted anything.  I know there's probably been a general silence throughout the Flightsim team as we slave away working toward feature complete and eventually content complete and eventually shipping Flight Simulator X.  Yay!  I will be working on the FSX FAQ soon (based on assumed questions and anything else I can dig up, of course), so that you can see what kind of technical specs you'll get for all of your content creation needs.

In addition to cranking on Flight Simulator, Adam Szofran and I both spoke at GDC last week.  Adam covered our terrain engine and I did a presentation called "The Make Art Button".  My presentation went pretty well, but I couldn't figure out why half of the audience bailed right before the whole MaxScript / Make Art Button portion of the talk.  I was thinking, "Hey, wait everybody, you're going to miss the best part."  But then someone came up to me in the airport after the talk and said that he loved it and would have stayed, except that he was a Maya user.  Aha.  So that's why everyone left.  Makes sense now...  Or maybe I just suck.

So, since I haven't posted in a while, I figure I'll dish out a bunch of random links that I've accrued in the last couple of weeks in no particular order:

There's got to be something in the water.

Yup, there's definitely something in the water.

Cool blog covering all the areas where people have put something in the water. (Some of the stuff on the front page NSFW.)

The water.
