Ups

What did you get done this week.
  • Chuffed Tracks (But didn't think it Socoder Worthy, so left it be)
  • Continued iPhing Development.
  • Started an iDev blog
  • Began my huge trek through my piles and piles of cassettes, to find about 10 seconds worth of audio that I know is there somewhere, but apparently never bothered to mark.

    Did everything turn out as planned?
    The train game seemed to get duller as it went along. I hate it when that happens..
    Bah..
    Some ideas aren't worth it.

    Meanwhile, my Tape Trek continues unsuccessfully.

    Downs

  • Sleep

    Why not?

    What are you working on right now?
    I'm about to switch over to the Mac, and see if I can finally finish off Cardagain!

    Did

  • Sold 2 pairs of headphones at decent prices
  • Bought some more stuff to sell
  • Watched more prison break
  • Started playing Zelda (Twilight Princess) again
  • Collected some debt
  • Got 2 investors on board.

  • Didn't
    Not much that I didn't do that was really urgent, come to think of it. AH WAIT! I didn't get nachos from the pub like I really wanted because it turns out they stop serving food at 9p.m. (early!).

    Soon
    Sell some more stuff, play some Battlefield 2 with friends who just got back from holiday, probably go to the pub again.

    Ups

    What did you get done this week.
  • Sorted how I'm going to do the attack code in Vesuvius, and have coded it in. Haven't had a chance to fully test it yet though.
  • Started looking at buying a house with my wife. Let my parents see the mobile home we were first looking at.

    Did everything turn out as planned?
    My dad doesn't always say things nicely even when he's trying to, and my wife is quite mad at him... I don't blame her. He seems to be doing everything he can to convince us to not take the mobile home, and instead pay for a 'solid brick' house. Another reason to consider other places is that the land is rented at $170/mo, and the land owner could at any time increase that for whatever reason they want. With a regular house once we paid the mortgage off we wouldn't owe a dime to anyone. My wife really wanted the mobile home because it had a wheelchair ramp already built up to the front door. But now she's considering other places, which I think is good.


    Downs

    What didn't you get done?
    Haven't tested Vesuvius's attack code fully, meaning everyone with troops can't make use of them.

    Why not?
    Couldn't find any time.


    Now

    What are you working on right now?
    I'm hoping to get the Vesuvius attack code debugged.

    Next

    What's the plan for the week ahead?
  • Look at a few other houses, if we could contact the realtors for them.
  • Get Vesuvius's attack code working correctly with all types of units (even ones that aren't in the game yet).

    Ups

    What did you get done this week.
  • Bought TimelineFX
  • Worked on game engine for friend
  • Mucked about with more electronics, made a spiffy gun

    Did everything turn out as planned?
    Yes. I had a pretty fun week messing around. TimelineFX is beautiful, and the engine (while still incomplete) seems to be coming together quite nicely. As for the little electronics gun, it shoots 8mm pellets at a pretty astounding rate using a brushless RC motor out of a busted helicopter we crashed.

    Downs

    What didn't you get done?
  • Sleep Schedule change, still on night shift :/
  • Prepare for project mates arrival on friday
  • Clean up home

    Why not?
    I was on a semi-normal sleep schedule but then one day I decided to sleep in a little more... then a little more. and so here we are, 10:30pm and I'm just getting up. I might as well just stay up all of tomorrow and belt it out

    Now

    What are you working on right now?
    What am i normally doing? That's right - Waking up.

    How's that going?
    Need food.

    Next

    What's the plan for the week ahead?
  • Keep working on engine
  • Try not to explode things with electronics
  • Get right with sleeeeeeeeep

    Ups

    What did you get done this week.
  • Made a new skin for blitzbasic.com
  • Made the live wallpaper a lot nicer
  • My bank account was approved for payouts on Android's market, which is good. Not really something I did, but it's a good thing it's done with.

    Did everything turn out as planned?
    For the most part. I had to make a new control for selecting hues for my wallpaper, since the existing option on Android - a seekbar - isn't very flexible. I'm really happy with the end result, however, as I got some more experience on UI coding for Android (including its use of scaled pixels, something Motorola appears to not quite grasp if you've seen the way folders are drawn on the Droid X) and actually made what I consider to be something very usable.


    Downs

    What didn't you get done?
  • Work on NUIT didn't quite get done.
  • I forgot to shave my beard and get a haircut.

    Why not?
    I've been putting my energy mainly into a) playing games and b) working on my live wallpaper. It's an absurd amount of time spent on an interactive background, but I'm very concerned about performance and making sure people will enjoy using it, so I consider it to be necessary. As a result, NUIT got pushed to the side.

    As for the beard/hair, I'm afraid of seeing what I'd look like afterward.

    Now

    What are you working on right now?
    Working on putting the finishing touches on my live wallpaper before release. Also, playing Left 4 Dead 2. And panicking about my dentist appointment, because I hate dentist appointments.

    How's that going?
    Gaming is going well. Live wallpaper still has a bit of code to be written, but I think once that's done, it'll be received fairly well by people who buy it.

    The dentist appointment has caused me to lose sleep, but at least I've filled that time with other stuff.

    Next

    What's the plan for the week ahead?
  • Publishing the live wallpaper and seeing how it does without any marketing at all, just because I want to see what will happen if I put it out there and wait a few days.
  • More planning on working on NUIT and probably putting it off to work on other things that may potentially get me some money (mainly work on Android stuff, since I don't like the idea of sitting still on that sort of thing).
  • Marketing! The root of all evil, and unfortunately the only way to inform others of my live wallpaper.
  • Gaming - the one thing I don't really seem to do a lot of these days. Trying to play more games now.
