I realized that I may have mentioned a new job here and there through cyberspacewebland, and yet I haven’t said anything about it since taking the job.
So, here we go… My new job is running a simulator for a war game. I make airplanes and tanks move around in virtual reality, and send messages that pretend to be from those planes and tanks to other planes or bases. Troubleshooting new scenarios is a fun little puzzle, ensuring things happen when they’re supposed to and that no aircraft remain in the air without forward motion (hovering C130 anyone?). It’s fun, at least for me.
And, there’s an RPG propped in the corner of my office. I’m pretty sure there’s a scene in a Daniel Keys Moran novel like that.
