Also known as "Phil starts reading too many books at once month".

The only things I actually finished this month:
  • Word Puppets (Mary Robinette Kowal): too long since I finished this, struggling to remember very much about this short story collection other than that I enjoyed most of it.
  • Elite: Dangerous Role Playing Game (Spidermind Games): I kickstarted this after they got copyright bullied earlier in the year. Haven't got round to running a game yet, but hopefully will do in the New Year.
Still reading Gridlinked (zero progress made) and The Three-Body Problem (some progress made) from October, but also now reading Echoes of Earth (good progress being made on the train during various work trips to Manchester) and New Views on an Old Planet which was the recommended reading for my 1A Geology course but I never read at the time. However, inspired by the Blue Planet II episode on "The Deep" (van Andel was the first person to see mid-ocean ridges forming new crust in person) and as it's available for about £3 on eBay, it was too good an opportunity to miss.

Coding-wise, I rewrote the "automatic loading" feature of Fuse to be more friendly if you've got additional hardware available (techie details here) and made some games load quicker.

Photography-wise, I got tagged in the "seven days, seven black and white photos of your daily life" meme on Facebook. You can see what I came up with on Flickr.

December will be spent trying to finish more books than I start, but I may not actually get too much done due to the fantastic Advent of Code being back again.
