A quick glance around this website will reveal a lot of unrelated projects that I’ve tackled over the years. There’s the book, the political satire site*, the terrain project, a D&D campaign, the movie, some Unreal levels, some game mods, a few WordPress plugins, a half-finished coding project, and now my webcomic. This place is very much the product of an unfocused mind. It’s like I’ve got ADD on a macro scale.
I keep telling myself that one of these days I’m going to settle down, pick one thing, and try to hone that particular skill. That day hasn’t come yet. There is just too much interesting stuff to do and too few days in which to do it. I do seem to be able to hold my focus longer now than when I was younger. Maybe that means I have more dicipline, or maybe it means I’m just slower.
* Note that the political site was done almost 4 years ago, back when I was still sort of Republican-ish. It may chafe those with a liberal worldview. I’ve abandoned the Republican thing for something with a more “smash the state” flavor, so there is no use in trying to debate me on positions I no longer hold. Also, I want to talk about politics about as much as I want to eat a bug. Don’t be that guy.

Here is a long look at a game that tries to live up to a big legacy and fails hilariously.
Who Broke the In-Game Economy?
Why are RPG economies so bad? Why are shopkeepers so mercenary, why are the prices so crazy, and why do you always end up a gazillionaire by the end of the game? Can't we just have a sensible balanced economy?
Crash Dot Com
Back in 1999, I rode the dot-com bubble. Got rich. Worked hard. Went crazy. Turned poor. It was fun.
