  Sigh... T'map! 07:11 PM -- Thu January 7, 2010  

After extensive endless streams of begging and demands that went on for years and years, I finally gave in and added a Site Map to the site. Or I think I did. I don't really know what they're like and I'm too lazy to find a site that has one and look at how they are done. Nonetheless, this map shows you what lurks behind the big juicy candy buttons atop the screen, so if you ever wondered and didn't have the energy to click on them, I hope you have the energy to click on the words "Site Map" at the bottom of any page.

I'm also "done" with the index page for the site, so many months in coming. Don't look for it, the temporary dud one is still there for now. But after a little more examining and simmering in its own juices, it will be going up. Probably tomorrow. The most exciting thing about it is the adventuresome depiction of an imaginary box for Supreme With Cheese:

(Semi-imaginary - that actually IS the artwork from the original DVD case version of Supreme. You may have one at home if you are a long-time fan!)

  Cupcakes And 3 Days 07:21 PM -- Wed January 6, 2010  

Let me just throw down that this is really cool, and I guessed like 95% of them right due to my general awesomebility.

This year, all 6 days of it, has gone swimmingly. I plowed through my "first 3 work days=newsletter and putting things up" business, even got to take a reading break when the newsletter went out. That means tomorrow, gasp of all gasps, I have to get to actual work! I'll mostly still be doing site work, because I have to finally put up the front page which has been sitting 90% done for all of December. It's time this site got done (except in the sense of totally working, because there are still a fair number of issues I should be hacking at every so often). So once I have that up... do I have to actually program game code in some way? Do I even know how to do that? Do I know what I am working on? Do I even work here? Who's that guy? HEY, GET OFF MY COMPUTER!

  Robot Still Wants Kitty! 07:44 PM -- Tue January 5, 2010  

I'm just about done with the updated Robot Wants Kitty. No links at this juncture, it's in a secret little chatroom beta. If you were cool and in the in-crowd, you'd be playing it as I type this! It's got some new tiles, a new monster, a greatly enhanced boss beast, a new powerup, a new area to get that powerup in, lots of little tweaks and balances, timekeeping, a record time list, and chat announcements every time somebody wins it. Tomorrow it will also have trophies for winners, a legitimate page on the site, and hopefully some more fixes due to the chatroom complaints.

So look forward to the exciting new kitty-collecting challenge tomorrow!

  Dumb New Year! 07:21 PM -- Mon January 4, 2010  

Here we are at last in a new year, and today is the first official workday of it (I got the 1st off as part of a remarkably long winter break). I did a lot, I think, and stuff is moving ahead. Here's how the new year is going to work:

- Each month begins with the first 3 workdays being spent on monthly business. That's putting up Action Photos, Fan Art, Add-ons, the T-Shirt Of The Month, and of course the Monthly Newsletter to tell you about all that stuff. Besides that, I intend to add one interesting new website feature each month (not this month - I need to spend the previous month making this interesting new feature!), and release a new Behind The Dumb (maybe or maybe not this month, we'll see. Again, I'm supposed to spend the previous month making it). It makes for a busy first three days!

- I plan to release two games (of notable size... plus however many Ludum Dare type games) this year. That's the plan, anyway. Exactly which two games those are is quite hazy, ask again later.

- I plan to work very hard during the week and take the weekends completely off except for answering emails!

- All that stuff I listed for the beginning of each month - There's officially a goal to successfully get those out every month. It's also a goal to Journal daily (or at least to sit down at an official journal time and decide I have nothing to say, which should certainly encourage more entries anyway), draw something on paper daily, and read 10,000 pages worth of books, because I don't think I've touched a book in a year or more. I've started with Carl Sagan's The Demon-Haunted World which I got for Christmas. I also have some exercise goals.

And one other thing, not so much for the coming year as the coming days: I'm working on a Robot Wants Kitty update that I plan to release with the newsletter in 2 days (and at that time give it an official page on the site instead of having it all hidden away). In theory it will expand the adventure a bit (not too much - part of the fun is that you can finish it in a short time) with one new ability, a new enemy, maybe a new boss, and a little bit of new terrain to get that new ability. And some alternate routes perhaps, to increase the speedrunning intrigue. It also fixes quite a few issues and improves balance, adds time-keeping (with a penalty for dying), and hopefully will integrate with the site to share your top time on your Dumb Page and offer a trophy for getting the kitty.
