(no subject)

This is going to be one of those entries where I don't say anything, but I spend a lot of time not saying it.

So at some point I want to make my own game studio. I've got various plans for how to do this and what I want to make, and for a while my plan has been to make a console game for the GBA.

Except now the GBDS has come out, which kind of threw a wrench into the whole works. The problem is that it divides the userbase rather badly - instead of being "people with a remotely recent hand-held system", it turns into "people who've got the GBA" and "people who've got the GBDS". A further problem is that the GBDS is fundamentally *different* - that "ds" means "dual screen", and to be honest a lot of people are really confused about what to use the second screen for.

But I've just figured out how to make it work *beautifully* with my game. It's like my game was designed for it. Or it was designed for my game. In either case, it's perfect.

Except for the minor detail of userbase . . . which should be neatly solved by the time I'm ready to make this game.

And, without saying what this design aspect is, I shall now post this entry. Aren't you glad you spent the time to read it?

nutrition weirdnesses

So normally, I can tell what my body needs by feel. Like, I'll say "Oh! Protein!" or "I could really do with some complex carbohydrates right about now" or "GIVE ME FAT". Or, once in a while, a weird craving for salt. I'm used to this. I just give my body what it wants and we're all happy.

Lately, though, I've been feeling tired. I've been feeling low on energy. I've been feeling somewhat dehydrated, except my body doesn't seem to want more water, I've tried that. Basically I have no fucking clue what my body is asking me for. It's really irritating.

I've done salads - no change. I've tried fruit - nothing. Pizza, sandwiches, steak, fish, sausages, and large, large amounts of etc.

Maybe I should pick up the multivitamins again - perhaps I ended up with a two-month supply of Vitamin Q stored up, or something.
