I went to Sydney over the weekend to attend my good friend Dioni’s wedding. She’s the girl I referred to when I told my friends in Melbourne, “I know someone who works on a Star Wars game title at LucasArts.” Yes, she’s a game programmer and she spits code as part of the job.

The ceremony was held at Castlereagh Chapel, near Penrith.
The weekend itself was a nice short break right after a project I had been working on since last July. I decided to disconnect myself from the Internet for 3 days and not check my emails, feeds, tweets, and fb updates. Instead, I had a lot of conversations with people irl about various non-technology topics. Some of the interesting ones were on a different interpretation of “the will of the heavens” in the Romance of the Three Kingdoms, and on various rescue skills you will learn when you join the SES.
