Back to a garbage collected environment...

C# has ruined my tidiness. Somehow I expect the garbage collector to come and clean up my apartment as well. Lately I've been doin' mainly two things: working and playing computer games (WoW and some 360), so I haven't had much time/energy to clean up ;).

Oh, I actually haven't written it here - I got a Xbox360 for my birthday. My parents and friends got together and bought me one of the best presents ever! You should have see my face when I opened it up ;). Thanks once again!

Anyway.. back to the matters at hand. I've just started coding again, and while googling for some XNA information, I came across this short article about the .net garbage collector and XNA's ContentManager. Check it out!

quote: Classic-Space LEGO
Greeble, greeb or greebling is a word not recognized by most dictionaries. As written in the greeble design commentary on Lugnet, “‘Greeble’ (also ‘greeblie’ or ‘greeb’) is the popular term to describe groupings of mechanical-looking detail elements on MOCs”.

It didn't really make me that much wiser - until I discovered the illustrations which sure brought back some fond memories! For those of you who don't know what a MOC is, here's a short explanation from wikipedia: "My Own Creation, a fan-created Lego creation that was not a set originally marketed by the Lego Group".

Here are some examples of some greebling:
