Chris G. Williams Beware: I mix tech and personal interests here.
Sometimes the first impressions you get about someone or something are 100% bullseye accurate.  For example, Gil Gerard really is a flaming pusbag, Dairy Queen Frozen Hot Chocolate is every bit as bad as it sounds, and moving to Minnesota has been the smartest thing I ever did.

On the other hand, sometimes first impressions are horribly wrong. Jason Olson is an excellent example of this, since we pretty much hated each other when we first met and now he's one of my closest friends.

Another bad first impression / momentary lapse of judgement would be this post. Turns out, Last Straw Games is a pretty cool bunch. Not only is the owner a nice guy, but he's largely responsible for the IMGDC and has also graciously agreed to be a sponsor for the Twin Cities XNA User Group.

So...  first impressions might not be right 100% of the time, but hey... at least I can admit when I'm wrong. :) Posted on Monday, November 12, 2007 5:05 PM Game Development , General Interest | Back to top

What? We're friends now? Close friends? Screw that you dirty hippy scumbag :). LOL, oh how I remember those moments. And now look at us, getting all excited about getting together for another code-a-thon :).

Oh sure, all this hate from Jason to Chris and from Chris to Jason? But what about me? How come no one hates me? I'm like the third wheel on this hate trip.

It's probably because I'm so full of love. Hate has no place to stay.

I thought Chris was some hard ass tatooed biker dude who would stab you if you looked at him funny... turns out that he's just as big a geek as the rest of us...
