Yeah I'm alive. Barely...
Hey, did you hear about this new invention? It's called a table, and it's basically a horizontal slab of xxxxx on four vertical pieces of yyyyy. It's amazing, you can put lots of stuff on it, and use it to dine on chairs (things to sit on, another great invention)! We have some in our dining room, and it's luxury beyond belief!
Things are finally getting back to normal over here. I know, it's been a while, and for those who've missed it: we've been remodeling our kitchen (along with downstairs bathroom and several ante's; all of downstairs but the living room actually, which we used to store all the stuff we had to move). A few days ago we started painting, the finishing touch as it were. Finally something I do like, painting. Rewarding work, with quick results.
But anyway, I've been away for eighteen weeks now, six more than planned, so I've got a lot of catching up to do. I've been lurching anonymously, off and on, and did a few posts here and there, but still. Here's my timeline, starting about a week or two from now.
Most important is upgrading my laptop to Suse Linux 10.2 so Python (and ThudBoard) will work again. Will take most of a day off, with backupping before and tweaking afterwards. After that:
1. First, I'm going to try to clean up the Forum Thud! section. I was behind even when I had to get to work at home, so there's a lot of catching up to do there. Lots of [finishing] and [unfinishing] to do.
2. Whilst doing that, I'm bound to stumble on a few eighteen weeks old games featuring yours truly. Ouch. Can't get them all back into the first page at once, so I'm going to start the oldest one (the one with Ponder if memory serves me right) first. Others will follow in due time, promised. I will remember to PM you.
3. Next, it's time to update the site. There are a couple of games in my inbox --thanks Elerias, SANEAlex, Magrat, FlorisXIV, and I'm sure I'm forgetting some-- and step one will bring up more I guess.
4. Once that is done, it's finally time to bring home a promise I made aeons ago, The Easter Egg Hunt. People who found it will get notice around step one, so I can get their User Pages up by the time step three is done.
Somewhere in between, I'm bound to stumble on a strange link in thudgame.com, called "Play Live Thud". What's that then? You can play live thud? Seriously?! Cool!!
Expect me in a week or two, and don't say I didn't warn you.
That's it for now, time to get back to painting. Looking forward to meeting Y'all again, live or on forum.
