    Howdy. This is Bob. The Bob of Bob Blog. This blog contains about five minutes of my thoughts each day. A record. A history. And occasionally worth reading.

    I've come down with the stomache bug that Sophia had last week. I'm debating staying home. But I'd like to show up for the company meeting and I need to pick Sophia up at the airport tonight so I can't just sleep all day -- which is what my body is telling me to do.

    PlanetSide has a fundamentally flawed key input system. The engine spits out two keydown events (and more if the key is being held down) and one keyup event and possibly a Character event. That's fine. The problem is that if the UI decides it wants keyboard input on the down event, it will still get the up event. If it decides to give up the keyboard on the down event, the game will get the up event. There is no way to say -- I already used that.

    But that is just one of my focus problems. HoverIn and HoverOut happen if you turn on/off the cursor. These trigger some windows to ask for focus or toggle the cursor back on. Ack!

    I want simple bugs.
