My wife and I have a dog now, Darcy, whose picture I now use as my avatar.
Work, like I said, goes on... Trying to find time to study for MCSE's and build a game demo up this year. Most of my coding for the previous year was creating Server Disk Health information and predictions on their estimated date of being completely full. On top of this I have finally been able to pull enough information out of Windows XP/2003 to find out Disk Extents information... but enough about server.
I have also pondered creating a game in Batch just for the fun of proving it can be done. Perhaps this can be a 4eX entry, as in the first Four Elements competition someone had a batch file as a joke.
Anyway, lets hope I can get the Requirements done on the Game Demo first. Hopefully I can find some time to update the journal on at least a 6 monthly basis in future :)
