It's been more than a month since I wrote anything here at Advogato. It's been a varied month, with a few developer releases of my lispy game Langband and work starting again.

Work: Work involves very little hacking these days unfortunately. After a research-prototype in the spring it's a lot of meetings, planning, getting external verification on the ideas in the prototype and trying to find working business-models that combines open-source, making enough money, research and fun.

Wish: Now if only we could find a partner using J2EE or moving into J2EE with a complex domain to map to Java I think our tools would be useful and worth the investment.. but it's not easy getting the first customer. Oh well.

Code: Too little time for open-source.. *sigh* All time is sucked away by thesis and work. Maybe I can find some time for more langband-hacking later... that would be fun.

Life: I'm oddly enough healthier than I've been in a long time. My FEV breathing-tests are up from 35-40% in the winter to 50-55% now which is amazing. My effective lung-volume is still in the 30s but it's up from the 20-something I've had the last year. Can't explain why really, as the opposite direction would be more realistic. But I like it :-)
