90% done...

Sign in to follow this  


I spent a little time clearing up the last bug, and I've now got to the point which all my projects seem to reach and then never progress any further from. This is the dreaded 90% complete phase, which normally means that you have the other 90% of the work still to do. Yes it works, but its just not at all polished. I'd really like to get this done to a decent standard, I'm sick of wasting time doing projects that only get half finished.

In true coder fashion, this of course will mean a full rewrite. I was thinking of how I could add in menus, and realised that I need some kind of state management system in order to this nicely which brings us another classic dilemma - do I use an existing framework or reinvent a wheel. I'm going to go for a halfway house; I found this which I like the look of and can steal some ideas from, so hopefully it won't take too long to get something working. I have a late start tomorrow (due to server patching in the evening - ugh) so I hope to have a good go at it tonight.

In other news, I just finished watching the first 4 seasons of Babylon 5, and if you are a sci-fi fan I highly recommend it. It's just so much better than Start Trek, it reminds me a lot of Firefly (but with bad cgi in the first couple of seasons :P )
