Like, Canada, eh?

burgerbecky, heineman, smile
Only a few days since my last post, I was offered a job at UbiSoft Toronto. Here it is, the eve of my start date and due to issues with immigration in Canada (the 51st state of the USA, eh?) I have no permit to work. In the meantime, I got some work at my old alma mater, Microsoft. I'll be Borg for a bit until things are straightened out and I'm working on cool stuff for UbiSoft. :) Maybe resistance was futile after all?

I've also stopped by Valve to hang out with the coders there and was able to score a signed copy of The Orange Box as a gift for my friend's son who happens to be a huge Valve fanboy. When I sent a photo of the signed box, he went gaga. I'm sure his geek cred shot up through the roof! His mom's cred jumped a few points too, for which I'm quite pleased.

I've finally found some boxes of my ancient wares and dev tools and packed them nicely. I'll be dropping them off in the mail to The Classic Video Game Museum for proper archiving.

There's a lot of other things going on, I'll defer them to a future journal entry.

In the meantime, I've standardized on UTF8 for all filenames internally in Burgerlib. It was a bit of work and it was worth it. Being able to have filenames with special Kanji characters work without change on many platforms was awesome! I'm such a geekette. バイバイ!
