I'm Back

So, a lot has happened since the last time I posted here.  Where to begin...

I got a new job!  After 14 years of doing application development work for State Government, I left to do basically the same thing for a mid-sized financial services company.  Ironically, my new office is about 1/8th of a mile from my old office.  It was very tough to leave the State.  I've made a lot of really good friends there and, contrary to popular stereotypes, there are many very intelligent, hard working people working for the government trying to make a difference.  Sadly, there are also many forces working against them.  As for the new place, I've been there for about 5 months and everyone has been pretty cool about making me feel welcome.  Other than the fact that I'm also over the help desk, it's not much different than my previous jobs.  Lots of meetings for requirements gathering, determining priorities, and I'm always working on processes to make work more methodical and transparent.  So far, so good.

Shelly got teacher of the year!  That is correct, I am married to a dignitary.  She received the award at the end of the school year and had to speak at the schools retirement dinner as well as the Chamber of Commerce annual gala.  It was a big deal and I feel it was definately deserved.  She works her butt off all year long and takes her profession very seriously.  I'm very proud of her...

Human Subject has been submitted to playtest!  Yes, after over a year of on and off work, my second game for XBLIG has finally made it to playtest.  I'm starting to get some feedback now and I'm sifting through it to see what makes sense to change/implement.  I planning to post updates throughout the process to give a peek inside for anyone that's curious.

That's all for now.  Wish me luck on the new game, and thanks for stopping by.
