Happy New Years everyone! My corner of the world has entered into 2004. Here I am looking into another year full of challenges and opportunities.

I’m not big on New Years resolutions. I’m not really akin to the fact that people seem to think that the end of the year means they have to resolve themselves to do something that they probably should have done in the first place. I’m the biggest procrastinator. In the past year (and beyond) I don’t know how many times I’ve started or said something and never followed through. That’s my flaw (one of several). I shoot out of the gates with the best of intentions and all the ambition and excitement of a giddy school girl, only to flame out a few short steps past the start line.

So for this year my resolution is to yank up my undies and complete all those things flailing in the wind right now, and the dozen other ideas I have in my head that are just itching to be released. I’ve been getting better over the past while as I try to get closure on things and I do continue to improve, however it needs some serious work if it’s to go anywhere.

For you guys it’s cleaning up and releasing SimExplorer that keeps hounding me, getting the other software going and all that jazz. Yeah, you probably heard this before so you can tune it out. Well, December was a bit of a write off. I burned out like a flame in my developer challenge at work and for the first 20 days I worked pretty much 18+ hours a day. Not that I’m complaining, it’s my way but there is a physical limit on how much someone can be at doing something. The rest of it, well, Christmas and lack of inspiration/laziness on my part. Then sometime around then I blew the bandwidth limit on the site so now it’s more moolah to keep the site going.

If these sound like excuses, maybe they are but I’m just stating the facts. No, I’m still not burnt out writing Sims software. If anything I have a new invigoration into it. For those of you that can only bitch, whine, and complain in the comment system (if it’s still up, he’s having bandwidth/financial woes as well) then get the hell out of here. I’m serious. What are you doing coming here and just pissing everyone off. Really, it’s no skin off my back and it’s not like I’m going to sit up and work harder to prove you wrong. It’s a personal journey for me and a self-satisfaction. So if all you can do is come here, hide behind an anonymous commenting system and bitch about how bad a job I’m doing get lost. I’ve probably said this before so this in itself may be old news. As for me, I feel I’m like Preston Tucker in sorts. I keep building things that are somewhat useful. Sure, they’re built in my garage with a minimal of staff and help and sometimes don’t work but I’m having fun and once in awhile, something good comes of it. I’m in the for the long haul.

Look for a new me in the new year, completed tasks and projects, and more great things from what I call a mind.
