Man I can still log in here, that's crazy.

I guess I should probably mention this here since it happened months ago.
If you want words from me, you should check out my new site:
I'm still working on Geas there. Weekly updates, in theory.

Hey, it looks like I've survived another year. Sweet.

By the way, I have a site again.http://speveril.northknight.com/
I've been updating there a little bit, if you're looking for words from me.

I actually have gotten some work done over the last two days. Not much, but it's a start, and I'm going to write about it because that was part of the idea. This entry is super nerdy so you can basically skip it if you want.
Most of my work was on a dorky little project that I work on every now and then. I call it 'Panacea'. It's a virtual machine with a very ASM-ish instruction set, encoded as 4x32bit instructions. It's all very preliminary and such but the idea is to make it as speedy as possible and easy to drop into another program. I'd also like to add that it is already endian-neutral; it does byteflipping on load so it can deal with bytecode compiled anywhere.
Why? Well... it's cool. It's fun to manually write bytecode with a hexeditor while I'm testing out instructions. Once I get a decent VM going, I'll write myself an assembler and, eventually, I can write myself some compilers that will compile into Panacea bytecode. Then I can use it for projects that need internal scripting (if I want) and, get this, I can actually write the scripting in any language that I make a compiler for. As long as it compiles to the Panacea bytecode, it can be used by an app that embeds the Panacea VM. So, theoretically it could be useful, some day. Mostly, it's just fun to mess around with at the moment, though.
I have another idea that is still in a sort of infant state so I don't want to talk about it too much. It'd be a website/community thingy that would be pretty cool if it doesn't get botched up in the implementation and early stages of use. I'll think more about it and maybe post more if I decide to go ahead with it (or if I decide not to go ahead with it and figure someone else might have a use for the idea).

erdrick mentioned earlier today that I hadn't posted here in quite a while. I figured I'd use the opportunity to both rectify this and to get some whining off my chest.
I've been having a crappy time recently. I've been tired and lethargic and have been getting nothing done (unless you count progression in Okami, which you really shouldn't.) Whenever I sit down to work on something I invariably end up not working on it. I'm just stuck in a rut and can't seem to shake myself out of it.
So I'm going to, god damn it. First step is to start getting enough sleep. Then I need to get in to work at reasonable hours so I don't have to stay so late, or get up early and work on stuff in the morning. Then I need to get myself a priority stack, as egometry called it, so when I sit down I have a list of things to work on rather than just sort of vaguely thinking I should work on something.
I should also start posting in here regularly with what I've been working on. If I feel obligated to post about what I've been doing then maybe I'll actually do something worth posting about.
Of course, the law of Me On The Internet means that now that I've posted I'll probably disappear for two years. If I've not updated in a few days, someone email me, yeah?

I have, miraculously, been working on Geas again. Thanks to Grue for his urging/shouting.
Here's a picture. I think it's pretty.

And to prove that I can't let a dumb joke die:( I'm Batman.Collapse )
Yes, it was drawn in photoshop. I used a black brush, a white brush, and the smudge tool.

The other day I had a conversation on IRC with someone who had gotten the impression that, basically, I don't think anything is funny. What ensued was a conversation where I explained that my sense of humour was just dry. When he found out I was Canadian, he said that that explained it.
Anyway, I just wanted to prove, once and for all, that I have lots of range of emotion! I'm not just a dried up old man. So I present to you:( The Many Faces of MeCollapse )
I hope that clears things up.Edit:
Just fixed the two spelling errors in the post. They were driving me nuts all day, but I was at work and didn't want to bother going and editing the post there.
