A book about Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

My friend DiamonDie (Maija Haavisto), who is also a member of the Hugi Core, has written a medical textbook about Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. As a medical student, I find that very interesting. It lists more than 250 medications for CFS. In the textbook I'm currently studying (internal medicine), there's just one page about this disease.

Strange dreams

Last night I dreamt that an elementary school mate of mine asked me whether it's possible that gastroenteritis causes haematoma. I was embarrassingly not able to answer it in the dream. (Haematoma results from damage to a blood vessel, which shouldn't happen in gastroenteritis.)

Some days ago I dreamt that Paralax was spending a term in Finland as an exchange student.

I also dreamt that a politician had saved a girl's life by treating her medically.

I also dreamt of having a lot of new video game consoles.

Magic numbers

Yesterday I noticed a magic number relation: The German Empire was founded in 1871. The First World War ended 47 years later, in 1918. The Second World War ended 74 years later, in 1945.

Dreams

Last night I dreamt that giZMo^fr and kbfr delivered a speech at some demoparty, and the bigscreen was very big.

I also dreamt that I had drunk something and felt sick afterwards.

I also dreamt that my mother asked me if Hans Krankl's IQ could be improved somehow.

I also dreamt that Judith Böhm first was a singer and then was allowed to study medicine because the university discovered her great talent.

Dreams

I've dreamt of faith303. I've dreamt that she renamed to Faith G. Creative and moved from southern California or Florida to New York.

Yesterday I also dreamt once again that I was back at school together with my class-mates and had lessons. Then I thought I should email my math teacher and tell him about my dreams, that we're having school besides university and that we've learnt about turing machines and automata there. I haven't done so, of course.

Some days ago I dreamt that I should write about the Cream diskmag having been dead for 10 years and that I should contact the graphician who created the interface graphics for Cream and ask him to create graphics for Hugi. I haven't done so either, of course.

Coding...

The game is taking shapes: You can move around with the player, enter the battle menu and select an option, everything is displayed smoothly with fine transitions...

Now the area where the player can move is calculated and displayed highlighted.

Coding...

Now I've created a cursor to move through the map by keypresses. What sucks at the moment is that I've not found yet a way to make it behave like in ordinary programs: after the keypress, have a delay and if the user holds this key after this delay, this will count for repeated keypresses. For now you have to repeat pressing the keys to move the cursor.

Edit: OK, this is fixed now.
