The topic of happiness is one that fascinates me. Maybe because I discovered the secret happiness a few years ago.
Immanuel Kant also said stuff about happiness:
The more a cultivated reason gives itself over to the aim of enjoying life and happiness, the further the human being falls short of true contentment.
It’s true, you know. Stop hoping to be happy and just be happy.
The answer is no, it is not.
In this terribly-made but REALLY cool video made by Le Musée National du Moyen-Âge de Cluny” shows exactly how easy it is to move (and even do jumping jacks) in 14th-century armor.
This is really awesome. Now I want myself some armor, though I don’t mind settling for this:
I want to take a minute to muse on the fact that its been ten years of AndFarAway.
Can you imagine? This blog belongs to a world before YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter. A world when Sharon was still PM, and when suicide bombings in the Arab world were news. Michael Jackson, Christopher Reeve, and Sadam Hussein were alive. Pluto was a planet. The TV show “Friends” aired on TV. iPhones, tablets, and Android were yet to be invented.
This was me around the same week I started AndFarAway, in a university exhibition with a drawing of mine:

It was my favorite PC game as a kid, and for years, I’ve been trying to remember it’s name. I googled it of course, but I guess I never used to right keywords.
After struggling all weekend with the name, I finally found it: Skyroads.
I first played in in 1993 or 1994, because it was the only game available in the school’s computer lab. Then I nagged and nagged and nagged until my father got it for us to play at home too.
You can play it on a emulator here: http://hummezum.hu/swfroads/
It is so cool, and much more difficult that I remember. I’m surprised that we used to race and do so well. The history is also interesting. It was developed by an Estonian programmer who later was also a part of developing Skype and Kaza.
Who used to play it and love it too?
