Wii Update 'n' Other Stuff

After playing on my Wii for a goodly portion of the last 24 hours, I'm still in love with the system, though I cannot for the life of me win at bowling! Both of my parents, neither of whom are remotely interested in video games and never play, have creamed me in it. Oh, well. Maybe that's because I stink at bowling in real life too...

However, I've also discovered the Wii's one flaw, which also happens to be its greatest achievement: the Wiimote. While it is amazing, it does have one major annoyance that really bugs me; it tracks slow. There's a one to two second delay from the time you swing the remote or press a button until the Wii registers your action. Not a very big deal in Wii Sports, but I imagine this could cause some serious headaches in other games.

Okay, moving in from Wii goodness...

Chapter 2 of Codename: White Knight is about 1/3 to 1/2 completed. It should be up sometime tomorrow, by the weekend at the very latest.

I would please ask you to take nerdjedi's comments about my stories with a healthy dose of skepticism, or preferably disregard them altogether. In addition, I ask nerdjedi to refrain from making any further degrading comments about my stories as they are all highly exagerated and untrue; the "two whole pages of gun jargon" are in fact several sentences, no more than a paragraph, and likewise the "paragraphs extolling hand-packed ammo." is a single, short, succinct explanation two to three sentences in length.

I will not say that Codename: White Knight is a great story, simply because beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I will say, however, that both White Knight and its prequel, More Than a Job, are worth taking the time to read. Obviously, since the book draws heavily from action movies and thriller/adventure novels, it will not appeal to everyone. I do not expect it to. If you enjoy thrillers, I would highly encourage you to read it. If not, then you don't have to. I would ask, however, that you do not slander and libel my works simply because you do not enjoy them. It is impolite, immature, but above all, it is ver hurtful to the author.

If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and the beholder by any chance is refering to anybody that reads the story but the auther, then perhaps you should take our advise and take out some of the firearm statistics. But the first chapter is not bad. Correct your mispellings.
