But I am pretty happy because I like buying stuff :)
I was thinking about buying a new laptop because mine died a couple years ago and never really though about it much since now. But instead of buying a new one and being broke I went to a web site I found and bought a harddrive for it 30GB for only $80. That isnt as bad as buying a new laptop. I just hope it works ok and is easy to install it. I never installed a laptop hardrive before. My laptop when I power it on says "Operating System not found." And it doesn't read the harddrive at all in the diagnostics area. So I'm hoping (after I read some tech forums) that it just needs a new hardrive and then it'll work again. It's kind of old only a pIII but it's not too bad and better than the one that runs my fbsd :D
While I was playing with it again I installed something I found online called BG-Rescue Linux. It fits on 2 floppy disks and even has VI (which I can never remember how to exit correctly ^_^) but I wish it had pico I like that one much better and its easier.
Also I went to the bookstore and I bought 2 books. One is Beginning Game Programming and I read the first chapter already :) The other is a learning Korean (hangul? :) one because I'm korean and I dont know it and I should ^_^'
Also, I finally finished one of the many books I was sort of reading but not really reading "The Indie Game Development survival Guide" I really liked it. It gave me some motivation and was so easy to read compared to C++ code books. I was planning on reading another 10 books or so until I tried a game programming book, but instead I'm just going to read this new one I bought. I don't care I might not be completely ready for it I can't just wait forever and maybe I am ready for it now.
I'm not sure if I'm going to run my own web server afterall. It seems like a lot of work and I don't want to have to worry about people hacking my ftpd, sshd, httpd, every dam day. I still might down the road but just not this month. I'm going to wait to put my domains back up too. I also bought a nice shirt at the mall and I needed one badly and I still need a couple more but I can't wait until it gets slightly cooler here because I have more cooler weather outfits that are great eventhough I love the hot weather too. I have a lot of really nice stuff for Fall stuff. And today was a gorgeous day today too.
For almost a year now I've been putting game or app ideas down on paper as I get them and dating them. At first I had a bunch of ideas then not so many...but lately I've been getting them again.
My latest idea is the one I'm thinking about making my next project. I call it Pet Store Tycoon. Pretty self explanatory I guess :D I just don't think there is one yet and I would like to play it. It doesn't seem too hard to make especially in a few more books.
This auto spell checking is pretty impressive and embarrassing at the same time :)
I'm sure I have some typos too but I'm not going to correct them all because I'm getting tired. I might not post so much again until I have a Pet Store Tycoon demo/screenshot to post! So maybe a month or so :) Or maybe my Columns/crosswords hybrid idea I got yesterday, hmm? o.O
