Club PA 2.0 has arrived! If you'd like to access some extra PA content and help support the forums, check it out at patreon.com/ClubPA
The image size limit has been raised to 1mb! Anything larger than that should be linked to. This is a HARD limit, please do not abuse it.
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Because there's no motivation like an arbitrary date!
So, are you making any resolutions for 2007? How realistic are they? Share them and other PA'ers might try them out with you. In the words of Tenacious D, that's fucking teamwork.
Here's what I've come up with so far:
Exercise more, eat better. Losing weight will hopefully be a positive side effect. I figure doing cardio at least 3 times a week, and some lifting, along with smaller meals more often, will get some good results.
Write things down. I've felt very unproductive recently, and I think a good way to remedy this would be to jot down all the ideas I have when they come to me. I'll be purchasing some Moleskine notebooks for this purpose.
Code something non-trivial. I need to start creating a portfolio of my work if I ever want to get hired by a good tech company, so I'm thinking hacking on open-source software or writing a game would be good practice. Languages I want to learn are C#, Python, Ruby, Haskell, and relearn Lisp.
Find a good summer job or internship. I don't know if this is so much a resolution as a goal, but I still really need to get on this. If anyone knows good opportunities in the Columbus, OH area (or paid summer internships anywhere), let me know.
Your turn! Oh, and I almost forgot my other New Year's resolution:
