What did Jonas do today?

Crazycat, crazycat, what are they feeding you?Except for going to a meeting related to the Writing Center where he works, and talking to some of his friends, and watching a surprisingly OK-ish episode of Heroes (“Company Man” – still in season one), Jonas spent most of his time working on Phenomenon 32. It was an interesting experience, though after finishing the forty-storey shopping centre he was rather reluctant to continue designing the rest of that level. At some point he decided it would be better to make the level a little smaller anyway, because even on his monstrously fast computer it ran rather slowly. Then, when he was done with the whole thing, he realized that the sewer system didn’t actually have an exit, which shocked him so profoundly that he started to write in the third person. He is planning to make more levels tomorrow, if his sanity permits it.

This is his cat speaking, by the way.

    *sits in room, typing a comment, while folks watch the first episode of season 3, even though my younger younger sister was in mid-season-two*

    Awww, a kitty! Hi, kitty!
    ^_^
    Kitties are soooo cute and fuzzy!
    On that note, how much of the level did you take out?
    And how many more levels do you have left?
    And how much longer do we have to wait?
    And you won’t tell us because you can’t keep deadlines, can you?

  3. On that note, how much of the level did you take out?

    About 30%. The sewers were supposed to go deeper, but it was just too much.

    And how many more levels do you have left?

    Somewhere around twenty. But that’s not saying much, because sometimes I do several in one day, and sometimes a single one takes me days. They differ in size and difficulty, as does my life.

    And how much longer do we have to wait?

    Between one and two weeks, I’d guess. Unless my tooth finally loses it and I have to go to the hospital.

    And you won’t tell us because you can’t keep deadlines, can you?

    No, not when
    a) I have the ability to make things significantly better. Every deadline I’ve set for myself was ultimately exploded by the desire to add or change stuff.
    b) real life keeps getting in the way. Working as an independent developer and for no money means that a lot of things must take priority, whether I like that or not.

    *stares at cat picture* He looks kind of evil in that picture. I’m sure he’s a bundle of love, but…

  5. It’s a she, but yes, I picked the most evil-looking picture I could.
