so p. has decided he's going to grow up and write computer games. he made this decision several months ago almost immediately upon learning how games are made. in the meantime he's become a huge wesnoth fan, and he's becoming disturbingly good at it.
the other day he pointed out to me that having to use the mouse to open the menu isn't so hot and that he should be able to press a key combination (he suggest ctrl-alt-m; obviously an emacs user at heart already. eek.) and it should pop up in the middle of the screen where he can then use the keyboard to select what he wants from it.
he also informed me that he intends on joining the wesnoth project when he is older to help them develop wesnoth 2. he has set also a date of 2020 for its release; i kid you not.
sometimes i just sit here shaking my head in awe and wonder as he shares his thoughts and ideas, reflections of the outside world cast by the mirrors inside his mind.
