As I alluded to in February, I’m going to try and shy away from the gaming scene while I experiment with other fields. That doesn’t mean “leave completely,” but my activity will be hampered. That is partially the reason SourceMod moved to a “rolling release” concept so we can push out incremental feature updates easier.
I’m really looking forward to this, but the next two weeks I am not. I managed to schedule myself into a rather nasty hole. In specific, finals last until April 29th. My apartment lease ends on April 30th. I said I’d be in California by May 5th. That means I need to finish school, move all of my belongings to storage, and move — in a time span of a week.
What makes this feat particularly amusing is that, against better judgment, I have decided to drive to my destination. This is not a short road trip. Clocking in at 3,100 miles, I can expect to spend at least a few days on the road. I’ve gotten a friend to tag along to make sure I don’t accidentally drive in a direction other than “West.”
While I’m resigned to the fact that I will probably miss my deadline by a few days, it’s both a long journey and a stressful two weeks ahead. As of May 1st, I will probably not be on IRC for a week or so. You probably won’t see any commits from me for at least two weeks though I will try to read the forums and bug reports as I have time. Blog articles will resume on May 5th (I have a rather scathing, two-part overview of the JVM spooled up).
Sayonara, bickering with Valve!
