Hi Jim, I've been reading your blog since Kean linked over here, and the content has been fantastic. I just want to throw out a couple little pieces of constructive criticism: 1) Watch out for the wall of text. You seem to have a tendency to let your first paragraph go on for quite a bit. Breaking it up (the way the second half of this post is broken up) makes it a lot easier to digest the chunks. 2) Run the text through a spell checker and do a little more proofreading. The previous post had at least one spelling error ("distain", though I just looked it up and was surprised to find it actually is a word...) and this one has "cutting the dance short a wee early" where you seem to be missing a "bit" (har har! programmer humor! ;) )
Kean, Since this is the most recent post filed under Jigs I'll ask my question here. What is accepted good practice for setting the UserInputControls flags? I notice that your own usage has evolved over time, from Accept3dCoordinates | NoZeroResponseAccepted | NoNegativeResponseAccepted in May '07 ( to NoZeroResponseAccepted in March '09 ( to Accept3dCoordinates | AcceptMouseUpAsPoint | GovernedByUCSDetect in November '09 ( and finally Accept3dCoordinates | NoNegativeResponseAccepted in this post. Are there specific behaviors you're trying to get with the different combinations in your posts referenced above?

I was in stitches through pretty much the entire 30+ minute Captain's Wife's Lament. My poor friend who had to drive us back afterwards, who wasn't up on any of the Wheatonisms I was catching ("Moonpie"), and who I think had mostly come with me to see Adam Savage... less so (especially since Adam's solo bit felt surprisingly short).

Now that I have your attention with my nicely done joke *bows*, will there be any opportunity for Rock Band with Wil at w00tstock Chicago? Regardless, I'll be the guy who finds you there just to have the opportunity to tell you to your face how bad you creeped him out in the Criminal Minds episode. The phrase I'm thinking about using is "your face haunted my nightmares for a week", which happens to be the honest truth.

Doesn't Sheldon know that his nemesis has an Achilles heel: Give it Away on Expert Drums? The guy needs to do his homework.

Thanks to the review and this response the wife and I picked up Pandemic a week and a half ago. I think we've played it for at least an hour every day since, usually more. It's a fight to win it at medium level - I can't imagine what it takes to win if you amp it up to legendary. Only downside - it's seriously eating into my Rock Band time....
