Thousander Club Update (3/29/2009)

This week's Thousander Club update:
  • Game Development Hours: 0 / 1000 (this week), 46 / 1000 (overall)
  • Novels read: 0 / 12
  • Books read: 0 / 12
  • Games finished: 4 / 12
Well, I haven't had any time for game development, but I've been working on a few other fronts. I picked and already started reading a couple of technical books, simultaneously nonetheless! I'm nowhere near finishing any of them, but I am using my free time to read a bit from each book, until I get bored, then I switch to a different one. So far, there's one about Perl, one about C# 3.5, one about TFS, and one about web usability. I won't disclose the book titles now, but I promise I will write a separate post about each of them when I finish it.

I am also playing 2 games simultaneously, and I've actually got my eye on a 3rd one that I'm gonna get soon. Again, titles will be disclosed in later individual posts, along with the 4 games I have already finished.

Too many simultaneous stuff, right? What can I say, I like to keep myself occupied ;-).

Thousander Club Update (3/22/2009)

This week's Thousander Club update:
  • Game Development Hours: 0 / 1000 (this week), 46 / 1000 (overall)
  • Novels read: 0 / 12
  • Books read: 0 / 12
  • Games finished: 4 / 12
So, yeah, I'm ahead in my games objective, which obviously means I'm just playing games in all my free time and doing nothing productive with my life.

Well, what can I say? That's the way it is! As soon as you lose momentum, it becomes that much harder to get started with something again.

I'm trying, though... Honestly!

Thousander Club Update (3/15/2009)

This week's Thousander Club update:
  • Game Development Hours: 0 / 1000 (this week), 46 / 1000 (overall)
  • Novels read: 0 / 12
  • Books read: 0 / 12
  • Games finished: 2 / 12
I know, I know.. I missed the updates for the past two weeks! In a row! Well, what can I say, I've been busy...

With what, you ask?

Well, first of all, right after posting the last update, I actually went out and got a new PC! Yeah, starting to guess the reasons more clearly now?

So, having a brand new PC that can run all the brand new games; pretty exciting if you ask me! Pretty bad for everything else, though; I got into gaming at full throttle! Now the weekend consists of gaming, sleeping, and more gaming! The good news, though, is that at least I'm making progress in that area! I finished 2 out of my 12 games for this year! I'm actually thinking of putting a restriction for myself to only play 1 game each month, from now on, so I can focus on other things as well.

Anyway, other than that, work has been pretty hectic! But, more on all that later; I hate making one blog post too long, so I'm gonna break it down into smaller, single-topic posts. So, that was the Thousander Club update post!
