Those of you interested in game authoring might want to check out my post on the Adventure Author blog today: http://judyrobertson.typepad.com/adventure_author/analysis/index.html. (Oh yes, and download the Fridge Magnets release while you are there! Hours of fun to be had with them.)
This is all in aid of proving to myself that I am still a) and academic and b) a computer scientist. Proof of a): I like making graphs and crooning over them. Proof of b) I wrote program which parsed some log files using JDBC to interface with MySql and then churned the results out into JFreeChart (with help from my tame software engineer who despairs of my messy code. He is the epitome of elegance in these matters at least). Most of this month I haven't felt like an academic at all. I feel like a limp conference organsing, book publishing rag.
