Nice experiment, didn’t work out

So I thought I was in with a chance of submitting something, while travelling in trains and planes … but it’s not gonna happen. Here’s the rundown:

In about 5 mins I decided to write a simple game based on the garbage compactor scene from one of the Starwars movies.

2 hours on the train from Florence to Rome, I wrote most of the engine in Processing on my little Eee PC.

Then I went and saw the Colesseum, Pathenon, Trivi Fountain etc. Walked lots, slept well.

Then, on the plane from Rome to Hong Kong I intended to finish the game … problem – the power sockets on the plane were malfunctioning, so I only had 2 hours of laptop battery.

Result: I’m here in Hong Kong, without a compatible power adapter, and an almost ready game stuck on my flat laptop. Ah well … it will be late.
