"Pre-fab Rice Krispy treats piss me off. If you can’t make them; you don’t deserve them. Liquifying Campfire marshmallows into breakfast cereal is fun but buying them already factory fabricated is like paying for a sticky, puffed-rice hooker."
I didn't even know I was pissed off about manufactured rice krispy treats but he's definitely right.

*maybe i should do #15 on my list of 100 things to do before i do this summer.

Maybe you have tried it already: Tennix has been available for Maemo for quite some time now. The current version still has room for improvement (performance-wise), and the gameplay part runs a bit slow. That's why our team uses it as an optimization target for a course at the uni until the end of January.
Two benefits: You get a playable, fast tennis game for your tablets, and we get a bit more proficient in writing more efficient code and making better use of the current hardware. This will obviously also benefit the Desktop version of Tennix, as both use the same codebase.
I hope to be able to draw some conclusions and give you an overview of what we were able to do in a few weeks. Until now, try out Tennix and get used to its (relatively slow) speed, so that you feel the improvements when the optimized release is out :)

It feels so good to start and finish something in one night. (Although, it's not actually finished, now I have to make this little "j" into a tiny pillow!).
What is this blog turning into!? Baby animals! Little french girls! Tiny embroidery! aaah it's like there's cute vomit all over the place in here.

The only obstacle, besides the frivolous spending (I have GOT to read that book), is that there is almost always someone from work dining out too. So we keep the gossip hushed.
