Hmm been a while since I posted here. an interesting weekend on the personal level, learning a lot about myself lately.. mainly my patience and tolerance....

Finished the map pagination for NGS and committed it, it works really well, and we are taking it a bit further, although I dont know how much of it will actually be implemented, because we are adding a couple new features for our game... going to have to make it modular, however.. we'll probably make the code so that we will have a drop-in module that can be coded and modified as the NGS code changes, making it easier to maintain separately.

Also continuing alpha development of the affiliate code (but I gotta get a hold of the client sooner or later, I've reached the point I cant take the code further until I know what data is required to be maintained)...

I also gotta get back to work on my CMS for my website.. I've let that lag a bit. I got to get off my butt and stop being such a procrastinator... it's just hard for me to do something a little at a time, and pick up where I left off. I like to code straight through and complete the particular section of code I had in mind, but time constraints seem to prevent that at my current coding speed.. I also spend WAYYY too much time reading forums (OPBS= Other People's B.S) and I'm too tolerant of incessant chatters on AIM.. however, I've downloaded deadAIM, which allows you to appear away to the world while chatting with someone else... Also grabbed SpyBot software and finally located that no-good piece of junk software that has been generating pop-up ads by force on my PC... hopefully my tired old system will be a little more stable now.. If I could afford a new PC, I'd get one, and switch my current machine to Linux (with a new hard drive and a memory upgrade) so I could do my development work on the linux machine... I think it would save me time.. right now I have an ancient P2-350 machine running the Linux. which originally was intended to be my development machine, but it has a bad hard drive, and I dont want to go putting a new hard drive in such an old box.

Oh well... one of these days, I'll hit the lottery (yeah right, when I'm 90 and too old to enjoy it!!)
