So, one month in, and where do we stand?

Well, I can’t help feeling that if the Pip-Boy was hackable I might have got somewhere. Most of my free time in January was spent with Fallout 3, and I can’t honestly bring myself to regret that.

I haven’t even caught up on the Uzebox development yet, let alone started on the new platforms. Still eleven months to go, though. Plenty of time…

Low Resolution

Sunday, January 11th, 2009

My New Year’s Resolution was to write software for three new platforms this year, so with a bit of luck this site will see some activity this year.
In addition to this, I will be writing something for the Uzebox soon. Probably another port of Cortex. This won’t count as one of the three new platforms, because I intended to do it before the end of last year. Maybe that doesn’t bode so well for the resolution.

Easily Distracted

Two updates in one year? What is this madness?

Well, since I was forced to upgrade WordPress for security reasons, I thought I might as well stop by and make a post.

My enthusiasm for all things Cybiko didn’t last in the face of things stepping up at work. I do still hope to do something for them, but I’ve allowed myself to be distracted by other projects, with just as little, or less, progress.

First off I was persuaded to sell my WonderMagic, by someone who was in danger of actually using it, and I used the money to buy some cheapo Portable Media Players (PMPs) from DealExtreme, which may or may not prove hackable.

That was last week’s fad, though.

Now I’ve heard about the Uzebox, and am beginning to get interested in that. It still seems to be in the domain of the electronics hobbyists at the moment, rather than us programmers, but I might have a go at building one anyway.

Shifting Sands

Friday, July 29th, 2005

I decided to reorganise the blog into a site-wide system rather than just a Cortex blog, so I’ve created a subcategory for Cortex, and will probably add others for the other projects as and when I have anything to say.
I really need to get the site organised now that Team Pokeme have linked to me. Maybe I’ll add a way of reaching this blog in the next few days. :-)
