Catching Up

June 18, 2007

Egad! Time just flies when you’re working hard! I had no idea it had been so long since my last post. Things are beginning to lighten up a little for us, although I’m unfortunately not making any headway on getting us moved. Still, I ought to have time to post some info here that’s come in over the past week, maybe respond to some of the new comments, and I’ll also see if I can get an update done on Petopia. We’ll see how the week goes. :>

Also MIA: Mania

I’m afraid I haven’t had a lot of time for Petopia or for this blog the past week or so. We’re in the final stages of QA on our first game and with just the two of us it’s a bit busy. Plus I’m also trying to get us moved cross-country in the near future. So I just haven’t had a lot of time. With that in mind, I thought it would be polite to let you know that I probably won’t be posting here or updating the site very much at all for a short while, and I am likely to take even longer than normal responding to e-mail. I’ll be back as soon as things lighten up a bit for me, and I’ll do my best to keep the site updated with any really big or exciting changes (although to be honest I don’t expect much until the next big patch). Thanks for your patience!

Happy Mother’s Day

May 13, 2007

I haven’t gotten to the Ghost Saber screenshots or the new nether ray on the PTR yet this weekend. I had some unfortunate news about my mother, who has just recently been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. I’ll probably work on the screenshots today, though — they should prove a nice distraction.

Remember to trim the overly long and sharp toenails of your bearded dragon before you put said dragon into a stressful situation and she tears your hands to pieces trying to get away. Otherwise you may have difficulty both posting on your blog and playing WoW for the rest of the afternoon.

Weekends and Windserpents

May 6, 2007

I haven’t had much time for the site this weekend because I’ve been trying to help my husband get his first game out the door. I’m supposed to be detoxing from a year of high-pressure work, but instead I’m remodeling challenge grids for a casual game. Actually, it’s pretty fun — but it’s not getting the site updated, more’s the pity. And in my free time — or rather, my other free time, since all my time is technically free right now — I’ve been playing.

A Pepsi exploding in your refrigerator can really put a crimp in your morning.

Spring Cleaning

April 29, 2007

So despite all my good intentions — to jump right into updating and expanding Petopia this weekend, to catch up with e-mail and PTR info — I instead have found myself … cleaning the apartment. I hate it when the cleaning compulsion kicks in, because there isn’t much I can do about it except clean. And to be fair, it’s needed — neither my husband nor I are exactly home-makers, and there are areas of this apartment that haven’t been touched since we moved in a year ago. Large areas. Like the living room. Plus, I tell myself, since I will now be here 24/7, since there is no cleaned-by-other-people office to escape to, I should probably make sure I have a decent working environment. But it means that I’m going to be sniffly (from the dust) and sore all weekend, and I won’t get a start on all the piled up Petopia tasks until tomorrow most likely. Bah!

Away for the Weekend

April 20, 2007

I’m going to be out of town for the weekend, so I’m afraid there won’t be any updates or posts until I get back early next week. Wish me luck! (Yes, yes, I know I didn’t tell you why I need luck, but wish me luck anyway, okay? I’ll need it.)
