There's a free game design course online right now. There's apparently about a thousand of us already signed up, with a waiting list for more, so if you go to sign up, it might take a bit. But if you are at all interested in making games, I would highly suggest taking a look. He does require a book, but it's pretty inexpensive. All the requirements are listed on his blog. So check it out. You can't beat free, right?

This is a friend of mine from work, Mysti. For those of you who don't know, we do tech support. She looks a bit out of place there with the rest of us nerds and geeks in our strange t-shirts, but she's pretty good at what she does. The problem is, she doesn't want to do it forever. She wants to be a model. Not too long ago, she decided to stop thinking about it and start doing it. She's been taking classes after work and doing whatever it takes to bring her dreams to life. (There are a bunch more photos if you're curious.)
That's the way to do it. Stop dreaming. Start doing. That's why I bought my cheap little camera and started figuring out how to film things.
So to Mysti, I say congratulations. You're on your way.
To everyone else, I say this: Stop making excuses and start making things happen.

I've found this silly little game that I've been playing, and I thought you guys (if it's still plural!) might want to join in. Head on over to http://eltriant.mybrute.com and create a character. Your little dude will do all the fighting for you. It's simple and addictive, but really doesn't take that much time.
Okay, okay. The real reason I'm blogging this is because if you sign up under me I get experience points.
