I Suck At Blogging

April 12, 2012 —

I haven't posted here in a while now. Not due to a lack of things to post about, just due to a lack of actually taking the time to sit down and write something.

Here's what I've been up to recently:

  • Slowly chugging along with my game, "Death is Inevitable." Registered the .com for it yesterday! Woot! But there's nothing noteworthy on there. Boourns. Yet. Hoping to have something playable with actual gameplay (that is, not just a walk around techdemo-ish thing) by the end of the month. Wanted to have something ready sooner but, ...
  • Picked up some freelance work in March. This rekindled my hatred for PHP. How times have changed, I used to actually like PHP many years ago (was my first venture into web development, around 2001).
  • Started playing around with developing an Android app. It's a remote control app to be used with an HTPC. Specifically, the HTPC software like XBMC and Plex which you typically install yourself on a spare computer... in which case you probably don't have a ready-to-go remote control to use with it. There are other apps readily available that do this already, but every one I tried either was semi-broken or had weird quirks / missing features that I didn't want to deal with. Small preview of the app here and here. Still pretty early in development and I'm not devoting a lot of time to it currently.

And that's pretty much it really.
