The best of both worlds

I would have thought I already had a blog with this same title, but it doesn’t look like it.

LEGO + Star Wars = Super Mad Fun! I picked up LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy on Friday and played for a good couple of hours over the weekend. You can’t beat making Luke Skywalker build a droid out of LEGO or have Obi-Wan Kenobi use The Force to turn stairs into a ramp, so that a LEGO C3P0 can get onto a ledge (C3P0 can’t climb stairs). I’m nowhere near finished and really not that far into it, but it’s been good times!

In other news (and the reason I’m not that far along in LEGO Star Wars), I’ve been putting ridiculous amounts of time into crackerMail v2.0. I’m on a 3rd development version and testing on the 2nd development version has revealed some [now-corrected] bugs. I promised a guy that I would have a beta version ready by Oct. 15, and I’m well on my way. The final version is scheduled for Nov. 1. The big improvement is something that has been on my mind since I first developed crackerMail: attachments, adding and removing and forwarding; I’ve got that part working. There’s some other fun things, but I’ve already bored you to tears, so I’ll leave it alone.
