I have played a ton of virtual table tennis this week.
Last week (10 days ago) I got an Oculus Quest 2, my first VR experience. I was literally blown away, had to quit a boxing game due to the fight-or-flight response 🤣. This is a stand-alone, untethered headset and as such most games are physically intense. After being very sore (blame Thrill of the Fight and HoloPoint) I purchased Eleven Table Tennis and so far it has been excellent, as realistic as holding a real bat. I never was much of a table tennis player, only playing casually when I was in a place with a table, but after a week I have improved tremendously. So much fun.
I have most of Roger Zelazny’s paperbacks (haven’t read all of them yet, time is finite). Ever since I read Zelazny’s Lord of Light and The Chronicles of Amber I re-read at least one of them yearly. This year (and I think last) was Lord of Light’s time. It’s an excellent book, and like every time I mention it: it would make a terrific TV series or movie.
I guess Dhall makes a lot of sense when you write it, but I find it hard to read afterwards. This is despite the tutorials I have tried being very straightforward, I guess it’s just a matter of getting used to it.
