Day 20 of 365: Day 2 Of Infinity?, Game Engine Goals, .Gif Theater: Ordering Whiskey In The Old West

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][custom_headline type=”center” level=”h2″ looks_like=”h2″ accent=”true”]Day 2 of Infinity?[/custom_headline][text_output]Yeah, I’ve been here before. I’m coming up on 48 hours without smoking, and I’ve been here multiple times.

This time, however, is a bit different. Actually, I’d say it a lot different. I’ve done this before with medication, I’ve done it with cold turkey, and I’ve done it with replacement nicotine.

Inexplicably, this time is completely different. I’ve got ADHD issues, which is normal. I didn’t get nearly as much work done today as I should have because of that, and had a couple of tasks I took on that had nothing to do with what I was planning on getting done.

But, the rest of it’s what’s different than it’s been the last couple of times.  I’m not particularly grumpy or edgy, or have the feeling that if I just go have a cigarette those feelings will go away.  I’m just barely grumpier than my norm (at the moment – that can change tomorrow, of course.)  Overall, today just wasn’t that hard.  Can’t say I didn’t have a desire for a cigarette – I sure did – it was just fairly easy to ignore. 48 hours typically represents the break-over point in this particular addiction, when it starts getting easier.  So, here’s hoping for an easy tomorrow 🙂

If you asked me right now, will I succeed?  Yeah, I think this time is going to be a win for me 🙂  I don’t think it’s going to be that hard to reach 3 days, then 4 days, then eventually, DONE with smoking.[/text_output][custom_headline type=”center” level=”h2″ looks_like=”h2″ accent=”true”]Game Engine Goals Meet Each Other[/custom_headline][text_output]I mentioned in a previous post that part of what I was working on was Joystick support for Jumpman Forever on the Ouya, which required that I modify the engine a bit.  Later on, I’d have to modify it so that it also supported Mac OS X and Windows platforms.  I’ve got Ouya pretty much done.  Today, someone released Mac OS X support and Windows support for Joysticks in the engine I use.  Perfect – now, that just leaves Android and iOS support! 🙂  Unfortunately, they’ve done things a little differently than I did, so, I’m going to integrate my work with their work, rather than the other way around – that way, when everyone is done contributing their bits and pieces, the system is somewhat universal, no matter what console or machine it’s running on :-)[/text_output][custom_headline type=”center” level=”h2″ looks_like=”h2″ accent=”true”].Gif Theater: Ordering Whiskey In The Old West – With Style[/custom_headline][text_output]Partially, I’m testing to see if animated .gif support works fine on my site.  But, it’s also pretty funny – enjoy 🙂
