We've got SNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW!!! Good, proper, BIG snow! This is the view from the Realtime Worlds office, and its great!! I hope it hangs around for a while, but its getting quite bright and sunny just now..pooh.

I got on pretty well with Minus4j over the week end as I managed to get 1551 disk emulation in and working! This means that we should be able to get more games online at Plus4 world. However, I'll need to add ZIP support before we really get invloved in it as most disks on plus4 world actually have 2 sides and are packaged up. Still I think this should be okay, but I'll have to look at it later this week.

I've also got a couple of PHP books so that I can learn a little bit of PHP and help out a bit more on Plus4world; well, that and my DMA Site. It's in desprate need of re-vamping and I'd like to make the whole thing database driven. However, first things first - I need to learn PHP first! I'm looking forward to it I have to say!

I've also been reading through the Yape SID code to see if I can get something from it. The filter stuff is pretty complex and I need to figure out exactly what its doing before I can decided to use itor not.... I'm fairly optimisitc that I'll get something from it.

We're bracing ourselves for -24degrees next week. According to the weather network, which is about as accurate as the met office / me guessing the weather.

Still, not as bad as out west. -32 wind chill and 6" of snow already. Bless 'em. Don't know if you've seen this, but it's funny: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QsxV49pmnL8 Canadian Police Chase!
