Ascending to a new level of Geek-dom

I felt like I ascended to a new level of geek-dom today, when I received a signed copy of Charles Petzold’s 3D Programming for Windows from the great man himself. Plans for the new Petzold shrine, featuring a gold-framed copy of CP, his books and various pieces of Roscoe/NYC memorabilia are currently getting fast-tracked. Failing that maybe I should get a tattoo of this on my arm. I can’t wait to read the book.
