Got nothing done due to visiting family and hot & humid weather. But where are everyone else's updates? I'm missing them :( Feb 18, 2018 at 6:48 PM

      Today is my catch-up day. Now if only I could remember everything I told people I would do for them as soon as I had some free time ...

        I can remember you telling me you'd get me a 1:3 scale model of the Eiffel Tower done using matchsticks.

        lol - my memory is hazy, but I'm pretty sure there were no Eiffel Towers or chocolate sundaes mentioned anywhere. But NOW I'm going to have chocolate cravings for the day. Thanks very much for that!

      FINALLY today I got to start writing programs at my new job. Today was the most enjoyable training day so far. My first program? "Hello, World!" ... of course!

        For security purposes some languages are custom developed.

        nah, it's not security. This was an off-the-shelf system, but it's 30 years old. So while the tools are still up to the job, the way they were used 30 years ago (to build the huge core database that's still being used today) follow very different practices to databasing today. The moment they say it's time to bite the bullet and rewrite the entire core system following better design principles, I will be all over it!

        It's quite old - 2000 model. A year older than my son :) But it's small, easy to drive, and a wagon, which were my 3 requirements. I even managed to pull into a fuel station without knocking over any of the bowsers (something I've never been confident enough to try with our "giant" car - I'm a shorty, so any 6 cylinder is too big for me to see the front of :D )

        lol - so reading through the IT policy, gaming sites are off limits, however I haven't been blocked yet. So it'll be touch and go. If RMWeb gets blocked because it's game-related, I'll just use my iPad and write stuff for my own game instead.

      Survived the first day. Onto #2. I'm sooooo tired :( And since the third new employee isn't starting until next week, we're not actually going to be doing any real training. So it's all just reading and induction this week.

        I can see a few scenarios regarding the iPad:


        1. You could just plan them.


        2. It's not for RM related use(The USB would, most likely if anything at all)

        No, not RPG Maker on an iPad. Just some word processing and spreadsheeting to plan out side quests, so I can spend my at-home time actually implementing them.

        I can't plug in a USB drive, but they're fine with me having an iPad, and also with doing my stuff on the work PC (in Word & Excel) and emailing it to myself at home. I may raise some eyebrows by anyone monitoring external emails, but it'll be fine :)

      Making progress on a commissioned battle system. Even though my commissions thread says I don't like battle systems and please don't ask me to do them. And after this commission, my NEXT commission is ... a battle system. I'm such a sucker :(

        And easier for people to actually see that you need help. I keep checking for new posts, not new status updates, so if you post here, chances are I won't see your request until LONG after you've made it ;)

        Last year an unknown assailant (hereby referred to as Kilim) began to flip tables in the status update section of the forums. People soon followed until the status updates were overrun by table flips for around 3 days before the moderators could keep things under control.

        You don't receive individual payments for games (unless you're using Paypal as a payment provider). BMT Micro gives you a statement and sends you money at the start of every month. But yes, you have to keep track of individual expenses.
