And as for me...

...I've held up, despite the lengthy time away from home and the slowly rising stress from the impending ORSE. Some of the non-work things I've done to keep myself right:
  • Ran through The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past on my SNES emulator. This was made much easier by a guide I downloaded during out last stop in port.
  • Started a new game of Uncharted Waters, also on SNES. This is a long and sometimes boring game, but it changes every time I play. You play a 16th century Portuguese trader; starting with one small ship, you must build a fleet through trading, and eventually go on treasure hunts to the far reaches of the world. And there's sea battles too. I'm fortunate to still have the maps I made back in college.
  • Wondered whether the Mets will come through as the pressure cooker gains strength. The last word is that they've slipped behind the Phillies, but after last year, a close second might be the place to be right now.
  • Been happy with the Giants' good start, but still mindful that there's a lot of season left
  • Finished off the final season of Star Trek: Voyager
  • Expanded the CIVFOR list to 104 items. I told you it'd break into triple digits!

Two recent milestones have passed. Yesterday, I passed happiness factor eight. And on Monday, I marked my ten thousandth day of existence. Both small things, and both prompts for a small bit of reflection.

At this moment, the ship is in the condition of "ultra quiet" as required by the exercise we're running. One advantage of this is that all off-watch personnel must remain in their bunks; since I'm not in the box right now, I can thus hole up here and bust out the computer. On the other hand, when I got up to relieve myself, I noticed someone else's solid waste in the stall; the need to refrain from even flushing toilets is an unfortunate consequence.

Now if you'll excuse me, I've got trading routes to run and video game gold to earn...
