Hurray, it's Friday already! Bagel Friday and the weekend on the horizon: a winning combination!

Yesterday was quite a good day. I got to hang out with the fine folks over at Nexon, who showed me all about the forthcoming updates on Vindictus. The North American version is running about 10 months behind the Korean version, so it's very promising that there is already a bunch of game content just waiting to get localized. Thanks to Yi Eun-Seok from the development team for putting up with all my fan boy questions!

We also received our AppleTV, so this weekend we'll go hunting for a wireless router so that we can start streaming all our video/music content to the HDTV in the living room. Sweet!
