So, hi! I've been quiet on the DNs and forums lately, just because I've either been busy in past weeks making quest stuff, or like now, busy with Real Life stuff when not doing MQ work. I definitely didn't forget you guys or anything! This week, next week, and possibly the week after, I'm working from NYC. Helping some dear friends with health-related stuff. The apartment has thick walls - so cellphone reception is nearly non-existent, and I need to go elsewhere to get online. Which is where I am right now - in a wonderful little coffee shop, having a latte, testing Vivi's code of blues' specials on the new weapons that Minar drew & animated, which I just uploaded for testing. We have a little bit of a Gremlin with one of them, so while I wait for Vivi to get online (since I'm not quite sure of what the chunk of code needs to get rid of the bug) I am typing this. It goes like this:
- Type a bit
- AltTab to my MQ testing window
- Attack, look at results
- AltTab to notes on specials
- AltTab to DNs window - type a bit
- AltTab to MQ testing window - repeat
- Tab over to MSN to chat with Charfade
I already got the stuff done in the database so we're sitting pretty so far, for release. Going to visit my friend in the hospital later. I can get online there, which is great! But today we are going to leave the hospital early so that if all goes well I can come back and work from the coffee shop during the time leading up to release time and a bit after to catch and corral any Gremlins that might linger.
Yet again I'm not going to get involved in answering questions from the forums thread but I plan to start that again probably this weekend if everything going smoothly. Otherwise I'll spend my online time fixing things // testing potential fixes. I can also work on typofixing while I'm offline, so when the chaos here lessens I'll start looking at the different zones and cleaning them up. Then I can upload them for double-checking before I roll them live (or have Korin roll them live when we're sure they're all good).
Well, Vivi is here now so I guess I'll stop chattering. I'll need to focus on files and downsaving and re-uploading and re-testing. Hoping to see you on the forums this evening after release, and over the weekend if all goes well! Have a great day/weekend!
