appropriately enough, I feel like a student telling his professor that he hasn't done the assignment. :|

I seriously haven't read a word since the last IRC chat. I feel awful about it, as I really want to be a part of the discussion and all and set a good example. I've just not found the time or motivation to read -- especially this past month being October and all (horror movies, horror games).

I'm also a bit embarrassed to admit this, but I think because I've found this book a bit tougher to understand than Racing The Beam it has sort of discouraged me. Which I hate, because again, I really want to see this discussion group continue. :?

Chapter 4 is rough, but Chapter 5 is awesome and all about movies and TV shows using Amiga tech. Chapter 6 is technical-heavy but short. Chapter 7-8-9 look to be the best of the book for this forum's interests, though...

I think we have given too much time to read the chapters, everyone seems to wait until late or get disconnected because of it.

But I'm not as busy as other members, so who knows :lol:
