Oops, I've not been updating my journals lately. Apologies...

Hardware

My new 17" PowerBook has arrived. Initial impressions are extremely positive. I *really* like this machine. Especially compared to my old TiBook. Some early photos are up.

The migration was painless. Just mounted the TiBook as a firewire drive and dragged my old home folder over. Mail, iTunes etc just picked up my old settings and off I went. Glorious...

I need to install a few apps, photoshop etc. but this should get done over the weekend...

Seal Basher

Much work has been done on this, unfortunately not by me. Seal Basher's got a new developer, and his contributions have been fantastic. Suffice to say, I'll be spending a lot more time on this in the next couple of months... I've got some great things planned...

Civil

So, to mark the occasion of Civil being themed, I redesigned the website. The old one had done well for 2.5 years, but it's crappy old HTML4 was too annoying for me. The new one is remarkbly similar to my website, but it's clean and low on markup. We likey...

I think I've pretty much settled on the style for the Agnostic interface. I'll use some of the iconic elements from the old one, but the fantastic backdrop and those hideous fake wood panel buttons will be going. I've had enough of looking at them. They're so 1999 ;-)

I'll do everything in Illustrator this time, and get it all much cleaner that the original. I've always thought it was a mistake to use so much noise in the Civil GFX. Obviously I decided that just a little too late the first time around, so it's good to get the chance to go back and fix a few things.

The Napoleonic theme may only need the icons, widgets and window borders replacing, which given a few weekends free, should be easy enough to do...

Osmosys

I've started to hit the OpenGL walls now. Had some serious problems with Ortho, which I've now overcome, but I've been disappointed with my ability to bounce things up and down the pipeline as I'd expected. Might need some work arounds. DrawPixels is just too damned slow... :-(

At least there's SDL to fall back on for somethings... :-)

Blimey, has it been that long? Hmmm... Oh well, hit Live Journal if you want to see what I've been up to in the meantime...

Civil

Thread came up on the developer's list recently to move away from the American Civil war theme. Although the motives behind the suggestion were personally agreeable to me, the political motivation probably is distasteful to those of a non-european background. However, when all is said and done it would be fantastic to provide another theme for players.

I've sat on the idea for a few days and I'm seriously starting to think that if I start now, and use most of the existing terrains, I can probably supply some other theater of battle for a 1.0 release. It's basically peripheral GFX and units that require the work, the scenario's can support it, the docs just need extending and bingo...

Given our release schedule I'm confident that it's doable, I mean, we're probably a year from 1.0 anyway which gives me time to do the GFX required and finish off my demo. Oh, and write another screen saver. And some other thing no doubt... ;-)

Looks like the system drive in Moria (Router/Server at home) is on the way out. It's starting to make a nice high pitched whistle and the machine has bounce randomly for the last two days. Kochanski is more than able to take the load, and I guess I always planned to make that the main machine at some point. Lazyness I guess.

The large drive in Moria should move straight over as it's just one of the ftp mounts. The ftp config I'd backed up over the weekend when I upgraded the demon. Shoutcast is easy to setup and Kochanski already has Apache 2 and Tomcat installed and configured, which leaves the Alcatel drivers and WinRoute.

Last time I tried to get the Alcatel setup it took ten days and much screaming at tech support. Dunno if I wanna go through that again or just use the ancient french drivers that I managed to coerce into operation last time. God, I hate BT Openworld, and the thought of configuring their POS modem again leaves me cold.

Fun day today. I've installed mod_rendezvous and played about with Safari, and I'm now contemplating something useful to do with my auto sensed homepage. I've also upgraded to Tomcat 4.1.8 and reinstalled the various SOAP and XML-RPC bits I'd previously killed (without noticing). All good stuff.

Mod_rendezvous seems to work exactly as advertised, but it would be nice if it wasn't Mac specific. I'd like to get it running on the servers upstairs, then I might be able to do something a little more interesting. Atm It's just appearing as a single machine within Safari, so I'll need to play with the conf a little to get the various sites installed on the TiBook to appear in seperate bookmark entries. If that's possible. Still, promising toy.
