Ok, I've been a bit slack about recording my progress over the christmas period. It was a good time for getting lots done on "where's my bone." I cleaned up the engine a lot and things are starting to fall into place. The main features that I've added are particle effects and better animations. Most of what I did was re-factoring and I won't bore you with the details.

I've been back at work for a week and I can feel the pressure returning after a relaxing vacation. One quality that I've notice about the programmers I work with is that they are extremely patient. They seem to have a high stress threshold. At times when I know I would be getting wound up, they're just ticking along quietly. It's not the first trait that I would have thought of when describing a good games programmer, but now I think it would be. I need to take a leaf out of their book.

I'm getting a little bored with "where's my bone." I'm unsure if it's actually going to be fun. More probably I'm just itching to work on something new. I feel a little torn: should I start something new and refreshing, or keep my head down and plug away at this project until it's finished? I think it's probably the latter, but I don't want to lose interest and get out of the work habits that I've formed over the last couple of months.

Meh, call me emo.

Something really needs to be done about the look of this journal...

Hope you all had a good vacation, and santa put plenty of swag in your stockings!

Apologies if you read this while I'm playing around with colors and suffer momentary blindness.

umpf... I'll deal with the CSS later.

GAH, MAH EYESH!!!!

I'm not really one to talk, as I stopped working on MalykAI, but I'd say keep working on your current project; try your hardest to finish it. Stopping a project because you're bored will get you nowhere (lol, look at me for example.)

Good luck!

Ya, I think it's the way to go. I'm going to set some minimal goals for completing the project so that I can move on, but knowing that I did what I set out to do.

BTW, have you joined the Great Games Experiment?
