So today wasn’t spent in front of the desk, it was instead spent on the 6 hour train to Berlin!
Was an interesting experience, but more due to the fact that it was the first day I’ve spent flat-out devving, not due to the environment. I found that I’m lacking a little focus at the moment, as I was flitting between projects, unable to decide what to work on.
I took a look at some old Uni spike work, and found that it really is way too difficult to make a console app in ClanLib… (I’ll be on the forums on Monday about that!) and have ended up getting back into the Tetris clone I’d started a whiles ago. It’s kind of weird: I tend always look down on my past self – I tend to think of him as an idiot. To that effect, I don’t like opening up old code because design mistakes jump right out at me, and I spend more time “making something work better” than actually “just making it work”.
I must say though, I’m really loving TortoiseHG. The ability to take a step back when I’ve gotten too far off track helps me keep focused: I pruned 2 code branches today, and I can see it happening again in the future.

* The link didn’t work properly, and so I’ve simply removed it as the file itself is obsolete. I’m sure you’ll, want to download a newer version anyways 🙂
