So uh, GitHub sent me this.



Our sign from the GDC party we had earlier this year. Wow, it's huge. 6 feet x 2.5 feet. Yowza.

Congrats and good luck! Important questions need to be thought about now, like what games will be used to socialize him/her and in what order...

Zelda artifacts book came today. Got it used for half the price the local bookstore was selling it for. Pretty good deal for the quality. I used the plugin/website Keepa to set a price alert on Amazon that totally paid off.

Here's a GDC talk on the same subject by a friend of mine.



And an accompanying article (if Gamasutra wasn't down):

A fun way to prove the earth is round.



Capture a time-lapse video, and stabilize the video to something large in the sky, like the milky way galaxy.

It's fine. I saw it on Friday just because I have ZERO trust when it comes to the internet and spoilers.

Again, it's fine. I don't need to see it again. Once is enough.
