With People Like Us, We Must Be Able To Travel Faster Than Our Clients

by Rainier on Sept. 13, 2011 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT | Filed under MOTD

After a lengthy, but smooth, flight, we've arrived home safe and sound from our New York trip. The fun is over, and now it's back to work.

A few interesting observations from NYC: It does indeed never sleep. There's always stuff happening left and right, the street vendor food smells SO good, the subway stations are warm and humid, and while there are less stinky bums lying around, the people in general smell more. We ate so much over the past week, we're on a diet for the rest of the month to make up for it.

Haven't been able to play games all week (the laptop is a dual core but has a crappy video card in it), so I'm itching to play some more Dead Island, Deus Ex and APB Reloaded.
