I'm a 34 year old Linux software developer from Finland. That's the place where people drink vodka with their cereals and where polar bears roam the streets.

Ugh, Sourceforge has again done something to the CVS servers that breaks normal use. All I get when trying to access my repository is a message:

Cannot access /cvsroot/civil/CVSROOT
No such file or directory

Nice. So what to do now? The CVS server has changed as I got a warning about a changed ssh key.

Is there any other place where one can host a FOSS game?

Seems like Advogato nowadays is mostly a place for GNOME developers, which is a bit of a shame. I don't care too much for GNOME so it was more fun to read diaries when people here were working on more varying projects.

Unfortunately I don't even work on anything that I think people would find interesting, so I can't even try to bring some other content in. :) Nobody here seems interested in games...

Finally got more time to work on Civil again. We've now completed and moved into our new house so evenings are again more or less free for fun stuff.

I now seem to have most of the engine working and units can move again. Networking stuff works again and a fair deal of features have actually been added on top of just the converted things. For those who wonder what I ramble about, Civil was turnbased but is being converted to realtime. As it simulates events on a fairly strategic level time is progressing faster than normal so that the players don't get bored silly.

Still much to do, but it's fun to see this little beast progress. It makes me happy to see years of effort finally become something. :)

More work on Civil. Parts of the realtime engine are now up and running, and I can't see any ajor problems on the horizon right now. Of course problems will creep up but, especially related to network latency, but that's a later problem. Progress is fairly good and developing is fun again.

I feel a little bit bad about the lack of direction for the project last six months, but hopefullt that will change.

Seems I will be laid off in a few weeks along with most others in our branch. It's a shame, we were working on some pretty cool Linux DVB hardware. Linux seems to be big within Nokia right now, so I should be able to find something else, the question is just where those positions are.

Oh, well...
