I just got back from seeing Wreck-It Ralph and here’s my verdict: Go see it right now. Not only was it a great story, it was a great homage to the entire gaming industry.
Today I also got an iPad Mini. I have an iPhone 4S and love it. At work I use an iPad 3 and have found it to be too big and bulky. This iPad Mini is amazing. It’s light, has a great screen, and fits my hand(s) perfectly. I’m even typing this whole post on the mini right now. So far it’s totally worth it.
I got AdvanceMESS compiled with sound but I have yet to test it. I have an issue where check install doesn’t like installing both mame and mess because they have some of the same executables (advcfg, etc.). If anyone knows much about Debian package creation I would love some help and advice.
Sorry for the late post. The past two days have been jam packed and I had limited internet access.
Friday and Saturday I was at Magic Ruby. It was a Ruby conference at the Walt Disney World Hollywood Studios park. I’m still decompressing from the conference, so I’m not ready to make a full review about it. Some talks were amazing, some were downright crappy. I’m just exhausted.
Right after the conference Friday night, I had to run straight to the FamiLAB Hacker Space in Longwood, Florida because they were hosting Eben and Liz from the Raspberry Pi foundation!
We spent the first part of the night hanging out with Eben and Liz, showing off our projects. Liz loved my arcade cabinet, and I need to get a kit out to her ASAP 🙂 Eben and Liz then did an interview with the Orlando Sentinel (as did I regarding my projects). After the interview, Eben did a presentation to a standing room only gathering of people regarding the Pi, as well as a QA from the audience. It was a great event!
Eben and Liz are both really humble and genuinely nice people. I’m really glad I was able to spend some time with them.
Also, on a side note, my little Color Picker test app for Windows 8 passed certification, and is now in the Windows App Store! Go me!
