More Maiku pokes!


Good luck on job hunts, both of you. That's always a rough experience, especially this day and age.

On the arms thing, surgery was a week ago, and I'm typing hunt and peck until the doc removes the cast next week. He said it was torn up way worse than the MRI showed, but he got it all put back together. So, just a matter of time and PT at this point!


Super excited to start dev work once I can type and draw again. I have fun games to make.
(Also, I need to finally play a bunch of action games and platformers I skipped back when they were current.
)

On the site, what all is really needed at this point? It looks like some optimization is needed, like responsive layout work and swapping a lot of small graphics like smilies and post buttons into an atlased sprite sheet, but I'm not sure about bigger things other than blogs being broken.

Next Tuesday l go in to see the doc and see what he thinks about how things are healing up. Still in the cast until then, hopefully I'll be greenlighted to start PT soon. :D

Really starting to anticipate getting back into the swing of things, I can already play console games with a controller for a little while. ^_^

Somehow a mouse got into the house, needless to say that my dog totally freaked out when he saw it. Luckily I was able to save the mouse and got it outside :).

It looks like I haven't been here in such a long time that the place got a facelift :). Glad to see that it's still around, I love to reminisce about this place (perhaps more often than not)

Glad you like the new site and omg I'm so sorry about the gender setting, that would have been my fault when I was fixing your profile by hand and used the scroll wheel on my mouse, ugh I bet half the FTV Team now has the wrong gender set... <sneaks off to hide before anyone else notices> Basically a lot of people's avatars broke so I went in a fixed them by hand for all FTV Team and some others.

Edit...
So for the past week I was thinking to myself "Not many people are using the new features, not even the FTV team.., actually, no ones even talking about them..thats odd..I wonder why..." yea, it would kinda help if I had given them permission to SEE the new stuff...<face palm>

Anyway...what am I doing? not much, sitting at home feeling sick, got yet another cold thing and my nose wont stop running. Just got back from Christmas (eve) dinner with famly.

Slowly coming back into my anime watching list after leaving my laptop off for over a few + months at a time now. That and trying to finish up my massive backlog to catch up with this season now. Aside from that I'm looking forward to next week since I preordered that Fate/Extella for next week and I might as well preorder the new Atelier game next week too as well.

Ok... Sorry I haven't stopped by in a long time but I see we have some changes. I read up on some of the announcements and see what I missed. I am glad FTV is still around. This "old dog" is still watching anime and have a personal collection of anime that spans decades. I still need to figure out how to get my avatar back in place.

Whee, I've been on the mend from a nasty Cold for the last few days, and that "almost well!" energy spike gave me a new project! (Another one! Auugggh! XD )

Actually kind of an old project, got involved in a fangame years back, nothing meaningful ever came of it outside of some longstanding friendships. I'd been meaning to go back and finish it eventually, some of my old buddies went "dude, you'll have to start over anyway, just make an original IP." 24 hours later I had a completely new game design doc on my desktop that captured the essence of the old project and I have a bunch of old friends badgering me to finish it so they can play it. :lol:

Other than that, life's plodding along, wrists are recovering, may have to bother the doctor again for some follow up related to my auto accident back in august, but we'll see, PT may shake it out. I hope to have art to post soon. I'm slowly getting back into the groove.

Having a really hard time at moment, my new job has been getting progressivly worse since, well pritty much since I started it... this past week has probably been the worst week i've had in probably 2 years. I almost quit my job and effectivly threatened to. Student loan company sent me a nasty letter demanding I proove I'm not working... even though I am and I'm paying them hundreds each month. A model I pre-ordered almost a year ago got cancelled becuase they ask for updated payment info - to the wrong email address. Then trying to get home i miss my train, then on the same journey I miss my bus. Then I get home to see my box of figures from AmiAmi back from December finally arrived - but when I open it I find half of them are in poor condition. Then later that night my little Rin figure broke in half and her head fell off, I know she just looks like a little figure, but that figure has more emotional attachment than anything I own, without getting to into personal stuff, shes basically what kept me sane. Lack of sleep from worry about work and other things is catching up on me and has brought my depression back, randomly having to fight back tears is not fun. Spent most of the day trying to calm down and repair my broken figures. :(

Your Rin is like my Primula <3. 2 month late but I hope you feeling better since I had a emotional rollercoaster when I started to hit some financial issues... did a little job switching and ending up back to my original job I had before.... Which made me more attach to anime and Primula. =3

After Kami-sama knows how long, I decided to start using my laptop once again. Pretty much avoiding it like the plague made me miss a good chunk of a season or two in general here, so in other words playing catch up when I have the time to do so is now a thing for me.

Yes I think so too haha :). I am feeling better, although since last post I had this cold thing that just wont go away, it did keep me off work for a bit as well, which kinda helped as recovered some sleep and gave me some free time. I tried to fix my little Rin, but the fix didnt last and broke again a week later. Now I'm thinking of a better fix but I havn't attempted it yet, so for now I just have to keep putting her head back on x.x The other figures are ok as fixed one and cleaned another. The Pre-order model that I lost I managed to find from a seller on ebay from the US and arrived safely so that was ok. Work still sux but its actually got a little better, although its crazy busy at the moment.

Have a slightly belated WB, Wolfie!

Maiku, what are you using to fix your Rin, just superglue? You might need an accelerator for it.

For my own side of life, my whiplash's side effects are still with me, but other than that I'm doing fairly well. I actually beat a Shovel Knight expansion in one sitting without having to stop repeatedly like I did with the original game! I've beaten several Metroids w/o break and my brainstorming sessions are going well. Job's almost to a calm point where I can just cut loose and be creative, folks are home for the forseeable future and we're supposed to get bids on building the new house in soon-ish.

Now I just need to figure out what to make my first blog post of this year...

I used Tamaya extra thin cement, but the break line is at point where her head weight wants to make it pivot. So i'm thinking of using something to strengthen it, maybe use an super fine drill, drill a hole up the middle and glue in some piano wire to prevent the pivot, and also if it breaks again it will hold it with a small amount of flex so it wont show / fall off totally. I may also try to find some metal tube to go over the break to re-inforce the outside.

Ugh... I think some emergency site redesign (removal of DDL) might be in order.
Also, Nyaa news.
