Summertime ...

Ha ... don't you love summertime? Full of outdoor activities, BBQ and beach events ... Meshing and coding .... Isn't it a fun season? Yep, I too think it is a good one :-) ... Especially since we finally have been resuming working on our addon(s) at a pace that we haven't reached for months now ... Only this doesn't mean we're moving forward ... well, Castorp is moving forward with his meshes ... whiles I'm going back over stuff I implemented months ago and redoing it ... As I have the tendency to often complicate the heck out of things, I have to go back and modify my design so that it is easier to use. For example, the intra-vessel messaging (e.g: sending messages from a switch on the control panel to a device located in the service module) that I build originally was inspired by computers networks. At first it sounded like a good idea, but after months of usage (OctoberSky use that contraption), it turn out that when adding a new device or UI control, well .... it's a too complex and take too much boiler-plate work to get going.

One thing I read last week, while browsing on some depression sites, was that you shouldn't expect to "snap out if it". In fact most sites seems to agree that the road to recovery is a long (5 months?) and painful one ... This lead me to think that maybe, after all, I wasn't victim of a depression but just sad and under the weather ... Hmm maybe, maybe not ... who knows really? I guess a shrink could tell me ... but I don't think I'd like to waste the outrageous amount of money their services cost ... 9_9

Anyhow, I'm back in the saddle, coding away once again on our [Censured] project. BTW, partner in crime Castorp, have posted 2 videos on YouTube showing a part of our OctoberSky addon (that Soyuz addon of ours to be released in 2012):

Please keep in mind that this is still "work in progress" ... so yeah, It's far from perfect :P
