So, like a lot of open-source developers, I’m a bit overweight. (The rest are all insanely skinny — there seems to be nobody in the middle.) A couple weeks ago, I got a treadmill from Costco for $1000 (on sale, regularly $1500). Then, two days ago, I bought the latest DDR game for Playstation 2 for $60, and another $25 for a second dance pad. Guess which one I spend more time on?
The reason we got DDR is some news story talked about how a video game fanatic and couch potato lost 70 pounds playing it. And it’s definitely addictive — I’m about a third of the way up the difficulty levels now, and it’s already insanely hard.
