The best-laid plans...

Okay, so I haven't been updating this as often as I'd like. I guess that's not too surprising, given my "issues" with writing. Of course, that's a major part of why I started this 'blog - to get practice writing, to improve my comfort level.

In that spirit, here's an update. I complained in an earlier post that I felt like my technical skills were deteriorating, and I needed to work on some independent projects to keep sharp. Well, I no longer have that problem anymore. I just started a new job, and there's more than enough technical challenge to go around - I've got to learn a new language (C#), and a new platform (the .NET framework). So maybe my little project will fall by the wayside for now, or perhaps I'll write a .NET gamne instead. We'll see what the next few weeks hold.

Getting my feet wet (again)

I've decided that I need to exercise my coding muscles a bit more. I've been doing little tiny programs as part of my day job as a software tester, but it's been a few years since I've done any original, from-scratch application development.

Since I've got a Mac, and Cocoa is the environment I'm most familiar with, I'm going to start my new project as a Cocoa application. But what's the application going to be, you ask? Well, I have traditionally started out in any new environment by writing a video game, so why break with tradition?

Now, I just need to choose a basic idea...

First Post!

Heh, just kidding. But at least with my own blog, I'll always get the first (and last) word on whatever discussion I'm in.
