Haven't written anything in a while, so here's thoughts off the top of my head.
I brought a Nook. My wife poured scorn on the idea of it not being a "real" book but then she started to use it and I've never seen it since. She even has a protective case for it now. Good thing I can read my stuff on my iPod app...
Built a PC from scratch- just an idea that came out of not knowing what to do with a Best Buy giftcard and my wife encouraging me to give it a shot. The theory was that I'd buy a piece or two every month and slowly work towards the complete thing, but then I just kept buying stuff from New Egg and I'd finished it in a month. I'd put all the specs, as many are want to do in lieu of putting their penis size as a quote, but I don't care. It's in a nice but cheap Cooler Master case, it's a quad core AMD and it runs under 29C most of the time and only really gets up to 36C under pressure- so good job done.
Having a new PC has lead me to completely ignore my 360 and PS3, but luckily we're still in a game drought- until Killzone 3 this month- so I don't feel like I'm betraying them. They sit there, idling and occasionally playing Blu Ray films or Netflix but they cannot charm me from Dawn of War 2 or Starcraft 2.
On that subject: Starcraft 2. Blizzard may be one of the finest developers of all time. Just the polish alone- I wish all developers could have the ability to say "When it's done" and really just wait until it feels right to let their child loose on the world, ravaging casual gamer and Korean PC-slaves alike.
Another thing I want to use Optimus- my PC- for, is to start writing again. I'm starting to get more ideas and I've been told that just writing for the sake of it is necessary to sharpen your skills. But, I procrastinate on EPIC levels so we'll see how this goes. I just decided not to call it a resolution- that doesn't at New Years or for the United Nations.
