Philipp at it's best once more.

Really loved to read this and while reading had an idea which hit my thoughts often lately:

How would my so called real life improve if I had the ability to delegate(Not sure if this is the correct english idiom for the german delegieren) things which I'm not good at to a electronic tool.
For example I forgot how many portions of this tasty lasange I've eaten already and just take another one. Minutes later my stomach hurds because it was one portion to much. Imagine there's a gadget which says either: "No Stephan, you've eaten enough today" or "No problem, just be your little garfield and eat one more"
Or when you buy some food, just scan it with your real life add-on and the money spent for each item is entered into your budget and the "best before end" information is saved and if you didn't eat this item until this date a voice remembers you of this fact.

I definitely don't have enough RAM to run everything that is coming my way :)

Lol. Nice one!

A good lesson learnt to 'read the title' when it says 'entirely fictitious game review' *DOH*

[put at-character here] Stephan: "Imagine there's a gadget which says either: 'No Stephan, you've eaten enough today.'" – There is it's called a wife :)

Someday in the far, distant future, curious post-humans will actually play something like this...

I've been playing a similar game. It's so addictive that it takes up every minute of the day. Even now, I'm posting this from an in-game browser window.

Ldd, you can fully republish, translate, mashup etc. the article as long as you comply with the CC license...

If you have other requirements (e.g. commercial ones – you want to sell the article), just drop me an email and we'll discuss it...

Thanks a lot for the quick reply.
I will not use it for commercial purpose, but I thought it would be better to ask for permission so I don't get into trouble.
Really nice blog by the way...
