A new outlook on life

Posted by Mooney , 26 March 2007 · 501 views

A few days ago, when Gamecop asked me to write a tutorial on DLDI, I had no idea how big of a project it would become. I wrote the first draft including 2 of the 3 Windows apps in just a few hours, but since then I've found myself using multiple computers and OS's to get more info. I've used two Windows PCs, one MacOS X laptop, and an Ubuntu Linux Live CD. I've visited chishm's website so much I've practically memorized it, I've talked on #dsdev for an hour trying to figure out UNIX commands, and I've installed software on my comp that I never would have otherwise. Needless to say, it has been quite an adventure even after only 4 days since posting it.

What with my recent surge of writing tutorials, I have discovered that I am rather fond of writing. I also looked back at the game reviews I've written and recalled taking immense joy in writing those, too. With this in mind, I decided to revise my plans for the future. Since the whole "become a master programmer" thing wasn't really working out, maybe I should set my sights on something more realistic? I mean, both of my parents are professional writers, so I guess writing is just in my blood. Now I would be happy to become a writer for a gaming/tech magazine, or even for a gaming company. Of course, I will have to look at colleges all over again, but I find that rather amusing as well.

Now, all I have to do is test the DLDI tool on Linux, and I can rest for a while... I hope. :blink:
