Year 2022

Gamedev, Art and Fitness seems to be my main goals for the next year. Hopefully I can travel again. Journal-part of this site is quite boring as it’s just updates and the other parts are never updated. Alot of content is hosted on sites made for that (deviantArt, Gamejolt, Audious). So the content is there. I can’t host much here as it’s too expensive.


Two low-priority hardware projects.

★☆☆🟨 [DevOpsCluster] Still missing the custom power cables.
★☆☆⬛ [Raspi Server] Prepare Raspberry Pi 4 for the eventual server migration.


Tricky. Both got some love last year, but since CD is broken and UTStatsDB is on hiatus. I marked them <unplanned> as I don’t want to give up on them.

★☆☆🟥 [SMAX] Ripping CD resulted in broken image. SMAX CD seems to be damaged. <unplanned>
★☆☆🟨 [UTStatsDB] Old stats are functional in vm. <unplanned>


Godot development will continue, ixbar3000 should progress also.

★★☆⬛ [ixbar3000] No progress. (TGT: MacOS Support, use gitlab)
★★★ [Godot] Minimum: prioritize 3 demos, project pages for all. (2d-anim, 3d-techdemo, suomiprojekti, arcade, planeetta)
★★☆⬛ [Godot] Optimal: (TGT: Release Pajatso.)


I’ll keep the optimal goal, with adjustments for the weight as that was reached. JLPT is also <unplanned>, the current situation broke my training pattern and I might not be even close to that N3 or even N4.

★★★ [Fit] Minimum: Sub 20% fat.
★★☆ [Fit] Optimal: Sub 15% fat.
★★★ [Fit] 2300 cooper.
★★☆ [Fit] 2600 cooper.

★★☆ [JLPT] <unplanned>


The goals are achievable. Ofcourse if I wanted to be good, I should double the effort.

★★☆ [Painting] Minimum 1.
★☆☆ [Painting] Optimal 6.

★★☆ [Music] Minimum 1.
★☆☆ [Music] EP worth of tracks.

Updated My Journal (2021-09) Q3


I Acquired the necessary new hardware to access the old harddrives and finally I can get rid of very old harddrives. My plans for the devops-cluster is lagging behind as I can’t buy the necessary parts, but they have to be built from scavenged parts.

I should try to rip SMAX and apply the linux patch. Maybe it’d be easier to just install it on a XP-vm.

A lot of time was put to gamedev and music. There’s a arcade game where I collaborete with a artist, so I can offload my time there to music. I did few tutorials on blender since the GUI has changed drastically and none of the knowledge I had worked. While doing this I also experimented with the blender-godot-pipeline and was able to import one mesh into godot.


★☆☆🟨 [DevOpsCluster] Ok. So I didn’t get all the parts. Need to make the power cables.
★☆☆🟨 [Ancient Relics] Now in progress. Got a new drive and have dismantled several old 2-100G PATA Drives.
★★☆🟨 [Backups] Progressing nicely with Ancient Relics.


★☆☆⬛ [SMAX] No progress.
★☆☆🟨 [UTStatsDB] Old stats are functional in vm.
🟩 [Wiki] Done! [Q1]
☆🟩 [GMP] Done! [Q2] gmp is the current choice for linux music player.


★★☆⬛ [ixbar3000] No progress. (TGT: MacOS Support, use gitlab)
★★★🟩 [Godot] Minimum: 4 released demos. Several demo-projects in progress. (2d-anim, 3d-techdemo, suomiprojekti, arcade)
★★☆🟨 [Godot] Optimal: (TGT: Take the best demo and finish it). This will be the arcade-demo: Pajatso.


The daily grind continues.

★★★🟨 [Fit] Got rid of some fat, still far from the cooper distance.
★★★🟨 [Fit] Minimum: 97kg, Sub 20% fat w/ 2300 cooper.
★★★🟨 [Fit] Optimal: 93kg, Sub 15% fat w/ 2600 cooper.
★★☆⬛ [JLPT] No progress.


Did few arts, also I learned that Krita is now available on android. It wasn’t so few years ago. I did install it and the next work should be done ith it. I’m thinking of retrying a Bob Ross tutorial if it has a knife tool. That tool was lacking when I tried last time and things didn’t look good at all.

In addition to painting I got some 3d modeling done with blender. A donut tutorial was done and I also modeled a car. The latter was used to test the pipeline to get assets imported to godot. Way too many vartices for what should be optimal, but it’s good to know that I’m able to use blender somewhat.

On music I finally found a place to upload my music. There should be link in the sidepanel soon. Not much musical ability displayed yet, but atleast there is a start!

★★☆🟩 [Painting] Minimum 1. Done. [Q1]
★☆☆🟨 [Painting] Optimal 6.
★★☆🟩 [Music] Minimum 1. Made few demo tracks. Nothing to boast about.
★☆☆🟩 [Music] EP worth of tracks.
