Updated My Journal (2019W27)

Failed to update for few weeks. Adding japanese training, gym and planning for additional projects (also valuing the state of existing projects) did sap more time than I estimated.

Road to JLPT4 (or a reality check)

The past month, I went through a JLPT trainer-book and I have to say I’m not impressed with my results.

w1:  9 8 10 9 7 9 = 52/90
w2: 12 5  8 8 5 6 = 44/90
w3: 10 7  8 6 6 6 = 43/90
w4:  5 6  4 9 4 7 = 35/90
TOTAL: 174/360

With 48%, that’s a fail! I should get at least 70% to pass the test. I need to work on that grammar.

New Project?

Raspberry Pi W

I got this Raspberry Pi W. The plan is to get few more and build a docker cluster. We’ll see how this one goes. Need to get few microSD cards and power source.

  • 1/3 Raspberry Pi W
  • 1 Powersource
  • 0/3 MicroSD cards

SC-880 is now accessible

With reaper and the files from djemberecords I can finally access my Roland SC-880 from my computer. While I haven’t done anything productive with it, only playing Rise of the Triad midis, the possibility to create music is there! Another hobby! yay.

Sad state of gamedev

This is the unfortunate part. I have two machines that can run godot, and both are unreliable. The older only runs Godot 2 and that seems to have a dying HDD. My newer machine runs Godot 3, but this has issue with random crashes, skips in audio and other minor annoyances.
Oh yeah, Godot 2 doesn’t run with this machine and the cyberpunk game was done with that. so should I port that to Godot 3, get a new HDD for the old machine or what. It really bothers me as the damn thing was almost done.
Last weekend I was messing around with vectors and AI, but developing anything with unstable machine is a blit frustrating.

Updated My Journal (2019W24)

Holiday over! Japan was fun. I don’t have much time for a full update, but a small recap might be in order.

Good things happened!

F&P made peace with Stardock, everyone wins! This means great things for the Ur-Quan Universe. Not much is out yet but the news makes me happy.

New Licences for DoAX3F! Lei-Fand and Misaki are now playable (though DLC) characters in PS4’s DoAX3! Hopefully Team Ninja releases rest of the girls too. At least Tina and Christie.

Road to JLPT4

While in Japan, I noticed that my verbal skills are much better than my written skills. JLPT4 should not be too impossible, but the grammar might be. But then again, I might actually learn some basics that I’ve missed.
(… Technically I could go for JLPT3 too, but I don’t want to lose all my spare time)
