Turns out interesting things happen when you ask people to turn up to a party in costume. The last week’s been almost week-before-convention levels of buildup, mostly cosplay-related.
(10 of the top 12 posts on my friends page now mention the Wii)
What could have been:
As in, “we.”
While the code-name “Revolution” expressed our direction, WRYYYYYYYYYYY represents the answer.
WRYYYYYYYYYYYYYY will break down the wall that separates video game players from everybody else.
WRYYYYYYYYYYYYYY will put people more in touch with their games… and each other. But you’re probably asking: What does the name mean?
WRYYYYYYYYYYYY sounds like “we,” which emphasises this console is for everyone.
WRYYYYYYYYYYY can easily be remembered by people around the world, no matter what language they speak. No confusion. No need to abbreviate. Just WRYYYYYYYYYY!
WRYYYYYYYYYYYY has a distinctive “YYYYYYYYYYY” spelling that symbolises both the unique controllers and the image of people gathering to play.
And WRYYYYYYYYYYY, as a name and a console, brings something revolutionary to the world of video games that sets it apart from the crowd.
So that’s WRYYYYYYYYYYY. But now Nintendo needs you.
Because, it’s not really about you or me.
It’s about WRYYYYYYYYYYYY.
And together, WRYYYYYYYYYYYYYY will change everything.
No project work for me today - went into Uni, but none of the lab staff were there so I couldn’t even get into the lab. ;;_;; More delays for me.
My life is full of really rather doomful work at the moment, and my blog may have to suffer for a while. Sorry!
My final report deadline is in 12 days now, and the project isn’t even in a condition where it can be tried out to see if it has a chance of working. Also problem sheets, exam revision, and the fact I’m extremely broke, and that Eric’s no longer here. Much stress and doom.
The post-LARP crash continues this morning, and as usual after the contents of my weekend real life seems meaningless and uninteresting by comparison. Still, I guess I have to concentrate on real-life things for a while. I’m hungry and have no food, and I have tons of work to do in the next few weeks, and Eric is apparently arriving tomorrow.
This evening I spent n hours (where n is too many) redesigning my site a bit due to an idea I had earlier in the day. Behold its shiny shiny glory!
Probably goes against every web style “rule” ever written, but what the heck. Certainly suits the site more than the previous two versions.
But look! It uses CSS almost properly! And it looks vaguely similar in Firefox and IE too! It’s a breakthrough!
Today, I have been in the lab about as much as physically possible.
I have friction marks on the palms of my hands.
I have had to wash bits of dirt and sawdust out of cuts on my hands.
The Physics department is now missing four hundred metres of enamelled copper wire.
However! The RoboFish project is starting to come together! Only two months later than planned =p
