Mr. Maximus left a comment on my last post asking me to at least let people know that I'm still alive. Yes, I'm still alive. Yes, I'm spending a bit of my time still playing World of Warcraft. If you're a player, you can catch me on the Skywall realm and I am a Troll Mage named Mahku.
However, WoW isn't the only thing consuming my time. I have been moving into a new position at work. I am now an official "team lead" for the Production Systems team. It feels kind of funny (and it does come with more responsibility) but it feels really great.
Outside of work and WoW, I've started messing around with wcurses and Python programming. The goal is to mess around writing a text-based rpg like Chris Williams has (based on the Rifts universe). However, I am merely doing it as a learning tool to learn Python better. Why? Because I feel like it damnit!! No really, the reason I'm learning Python is because a couple of coworkers and me are starting to put together a set of Python libraries to help troubleshoot production support issues. Why Python? Because it is a scripting language, and because it is has a lot of community support.
So that's what's going on. Not much but a lot at the same time. Take it easy peeps.
