Getting back into the “swing” of “things,” or: To Blog or Not to Blog

Well, I haven’t written much here lately. I guess I kind of wonder sometimes what to write about, even though I have things on my mind. There is a fear of having ideas stolen if I reveal too much here, and so, about things I’m creating, I say little or nothing. Mundane things often seem too mundane to write… etc.

how cool!

I’m staying home from work today because I’m not feeling really well. I was busy pretty much all weekend, painting most of the day Saturday in a very hot room, which I think took a lot out of me (my nose started to get stuffed up Saturday night and by Sunday night I was feeling drained and a little feverish; I didn’t sleep well last night at all).

the post with the uninspired title (well, another one, anyway)

Finished Fool Moon (the second Dresden Files book) on Sunday, and enjoyed it as much as the first.

I can feel my mind getting jumbled and full again…

… so hopefully this will help to unburden it.

I just discovered the concept of immediate mode GUIs, which is why the mind-jumble is occuring. Trying to figure out whether it is much better than the normal way to do GUIs (seems likely) and whether it is worth it for me to try it out (versus using a GUI system somebody already made once I get to the point of having something to put a GUI on), to which the answer, I suspect, is no. It is interesting, but not close enough to what really interests me, I think, to warrant my effort, though I do hope someone makes a system for it that I can use.
