    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.

    Another title, and another, and another
    This week involved the release of my third major game title "EverQuest 2: Desert of Flames." I think the team did an amazing job with this expansion and I hope we get the chance to do a lot more.

    I don't like to write about work. Too many potential pitfalls and not much upside.

    One of the upsides happens to be getting fast cars. My office mate had to replace his 1985 Toyota this week. The Nissan 350Z will do very nicely. Not quite the days of the "Verant Racing Team" when everyone had a fast car and had money in their monthly budget for replacement tires but our team is starting to have its share of sports cars.

    I'm quite happy with my VW Cabrio and 1976 Bus. I'll leave the car envy for someone else. Computer envy on the other hand is perfectly acceptable. And even then, I can't really complain given the new laptop. OK, a really fast work machine would be nice.

    Macromedia Studio 8 (the new Flash, DreamWeaver, and Fireworks) bundle launched yesterday. I downloaded the free trial version and ordered the upgrade through Amazon. There will be lots to learn there. I hope to put these to use and hope I don't have to upgrade every year (every other?)

    Funny though. If I were the one making the application, I'd hope the people using it would upgrade every year. Another title and another. Another expansion and another. Us software engineers are expensive. So go buy a game, preferrably mine.
