Walked to Giant Eagle with Emily after work to get some groceries in preparation for her parents to visit this weekend. After I had some embarrassing trouble finding the taco shells we gathered everything up and walked home.
Finally finished Mass Effect 2. The final mission is truly epic, and I like how they got around the whole “you have a team of 12 but can only take two with you in this really hard mission” problem that seems to pop up in a lot of RPGs. My favorite thing, however, is that you can get Mordin to sing. Wonderful.
Only question now is whether to move on to the next game in my stack or take a break.
Spent much of the day dealing with some new-job-related administrivia I’d been putting off. Health insurance, 401k, etc. Finally got it straightened out.
Also submitted feedback on the training materials. Impressed by how quickly my comments were addressed.
Spent the rest of the day attempting to reproduce a certain software configuration from a previous project. The mechanics are easy. The more challenging aspect is coming up with useful and interesting test cases.
Walked to Giant Eagle after work to get some exercise and some groceries. This could be a good habit to get into.
