Update on things

Been pretty busy lately. Had to travel to a conference for work in the beginning of May, been bouncing around different projects at work, and my buddy and I have been putting in a lot of time on our new game idea.

Things at work have been especially interesting the past week when I got moved over back fill on a project for my boss. We have a piece of software we're upgrading and preparing to license; however while the functionality the software provides is pretty good, the underlying code is pretty messy and old. The past week I've been getting oriented in this new code-base, and doing a lot of clean-ups and improvements. The MS C++ compiler (VS 2008) has been pretty handy in this regard, it spits out a lot of good info regarding deprecated or dangerous functionality. Working on this has been an interesting diversion and challenge, so I'm pretty happy doing it.
