2017 Goals Second Quarter Report

It’s now the third quarter of 2017, so since I set a goal to “After each quarter, assess progress and note any necessary amendments to goals in a blog post,” it’s time to consider how the year has gone in comparison to the goals I set. I looked at the Shine Cycle on Monday and Strategic Primer on Wednesday; today, all my other goals. Continue reading

2017 Goals Second Quarter Report: Shine Cycle

Another three months have flown by, and 2017 is now nearly half gone. Since one of my goals for this year was to “After each quarter, assess progress and note any necessary amendments to goals in a blog post,” it’s time to check myself again, as I did back in April. I’ll also look over last month’s monthly goals, rather than making a separate and redundant “writing status update” post. Continue reading

Strategic Primer assistive programs release, development report, and roadmap (0.4.9014-rc2)

It’s been four weeks since the last snapshot release-cum-release candidate, and in that time I’ve fixed several bugs introduced by the port to Ceylon, added a few new features, and done what feels like a great deal of refactoring.

Strategic Primer assistive programs release, development report, and roadmap (0.4.9014-rc1)

It’s now been four months since the last snapshot release of the suite of assistive programs for players and Judges of Strategic Primer, with my only public comments about development progress being a few lines in the quarterly goals check last month. Most of my development efforts in the past months have gone into porting the suite to Ceylon, but that port has been essentially complete for several weeks now, and I’ve implemented some new features as well, so I’ve built a new “snapshot release,” or to use a new-to-this-project term, a “release candidate.” Players, please try it out and let me know of any issues you run into! You can download it from GitHub as usual. Continue reading

Writing status update (#48)

Another month has flown by since the quarterly goals check that functioned as my last monthly report on my progress developing the Shine Cycle, so it’s time for an update on the last few weeks, which have seen a near-return to what I consider normal progress. Continue reading

2017 Goals First Quarter Report

I looked at the Shine Cycle on Monday and Strategic Primer on Wednesday; today, all my other goals. Continue reading
