I'm burning the electric blanket & throwing away the sun lamps because it's SUMMER! I've started in on a new piece of writing, I'm updating the stock market game with more interesting financial events & bug fixes, and even finding time to marinate my favourite meats in specially selected balsamic vinegars. Summer is here and it's never going to end.

Long-time fans may remember Diamond Find, my massive text-based diamond-locating simulator. Even longer-time fans (basically just my family at this point) might remember that I once put out a book called Gray which is, I have to say, my worst, and thankfully out-of-print.
Long story short, I wrote a sequel to Gray using the Diamond Find engine!
I'd originally planned to fix Gray and release them both at once, but in the end it wasn't worth it. Anyway, The Calico Brief is finally ready to play. It's far better than Gray ever was, and you don't need to have read the book to understand what's going on. It's... probably better if you haven't.

Didn't do a ton over the winter, although I did spend January bringing a dormant project nearly to completion. In the next month or so, I should be putting out a new free game in the same style as Diamond Find.
I also figured out what my major project will be for this year, and it's a departure from my usual. It's still going to be a comedy, but it'll draw more upon real technical knowledge than my regular cyber-fantasies. More updates later.
I'll also have a new version of wolfOS, my proprietary convention-table operating system. If you didn't see its debut at Hal-Con, it granted coupon codes to whoever could hack into its secure datavault. Maybe this year it'll have a bigger screen? I haven't done up a realistic budget yet.
