Amazing how you can pack so much in three days. On Monday, I was sick as I mentioned before. Inigo also went into the vet to get neutered and be tagged. Since then, he has been absolutely miserable since then, screaming out in pain with every step and crawling into a ball instead of moving. The formerly excited puppy has turned into sad eyes and it reminds me of Dante so much before he died. I know he isn't, he is just miserable and in a few weeks, he'll be fine, but it hurts to much to hear him yelping.
I got the second alpha for CuteGod out. It includes installers for Windows and a binary package for Linux. THere are some burps with some of the Linux platforms, but Windows works beautifully and I'm damn proud I got so far. I sent a copy to Danc, who proposed the challenge, and he gave me a lot of really good feedback and compliments. I won't be able to do much for a few weeks with NaNoWriMo, but it is actually getting close to being a real "game" and something I've been trying to do for twenty-six very long years. Please, download it and tell me what you think.
I'm also winding up for NaNoWriMo by writing some short stories. Struggling a lot with trying to "remember" how to write. It's that horrible state where I know the words, but I lost that skill where it comes out so quickly, so easily. I'll get there, but I have to context switch between programming and writing and its hard. It really points out that you can specialize or you can be generic, but a specialist will usually do it faster and easier than the generalist.
