Also I think I'm going to have to ditch my idea of a text-only game first. It's pretty difficult to fiddle with things without a GUI interface, and I'm going to have to get a rapid prototype up for testing, by the next target (next sunday).
Other than that, I don't know how things will turn out. I can just hope that it ends up working out OK.
For those of you who can't get enough of stat mongering, I've written a Journal views bash script that will grab the journals page, and output the journals in ascending order of views. Compare your standing with Samsonite, DogCity and johnhattan! Obsess over meaningless numbers! Be the envy of family and/or friends!
