Apologies for lack of service in this journal and moderatorness and general spamingness of the DirectX forums


Work and this thing called "real life" has been keeping me busy. In the last 10 or so days I've had no more than an hour in total of time to use my personal machines. Yes, my lovely new 20.1" monitor has been sitting lonely and unused [sad].

I've got a backlog of 500+ emails (admittedly 499 of those are spam [rolleyes]) various PM's, newsgroups, forums, book work (writing and reviewing), paperwork etc...

Normal service will resume once I actually manage to get on top of things again. Fingers crossed it'll be a little less busy for the next 10 days or so [grin]

And it's only just Monday - don'tcha just [inlove] Monday?

It must be a universal thing! I've been busy applying for colleges and planning trips to Seattle as well (I was at the MS campus for a Vista beta tour at the beginning of this month). I'm leaving again to go see Valve for the third time now... Quite crazy (and expensive!).

I got asked this at work a few weeks back and genuinely got it wrong. People thought I was joking at first - if only I'd managed to play along with them [headshake]

<me too>Yup, know that feeling well. I recently got made "Technical Lead" (a.k.a. Lead Programmer) on a project - woo, yay... more meetings, more paperwork, more [key] decision making, more responsibility (a.k.a. saviour vs scapegoat) - on top of the stuff I was already doing of course. Strangely enough I'm already getting used to being the last one out of the office every night [wink] <awaits annual pay review season...>.

You'll be back on form as #1 DirectX MVP contributor soon enough Jack [smile] - new town, new company, new role - they all take more "spare cycles" than usual until you've completely settled in.

yeah, hopefully thats all it is - give it a month or two more and getting up at 6.30am might seem normal!

Cheers,
Jack
