I've been back blogging every day for nearly three weeks. Sometimes, it feels like I'm holding a one sided conversation with Google crawlbot. I write something and within seconds, the crawlbot arrives, scurries around the post, rips out the keywords, and disappears back to Google HQ where it buries my words in the trillions they have stored there. Other than that, very little traffic passes this way. Sometimes it's hard to feel motivated.
So, today, it's been a day away from the blog and away from the web. I watched Liverpool lose to Chelsea and then I watched two episodes of Gold Rush, which remains one of my favourite shows despite my knowing it's heavily scripted and in spite of the levels of frustration I feel when I see people doing dumb things (ignoring Gene Cheeseman is always dumb).
However, my day has been largely been spent coding the game. I've added new menus and a new game mode which I think is probably the best so far. I have quite a bit more work to do before I even think about issuing a new update of the game.
