Do you remember when Austin Powers “lost his mojo”? I feel that way. I’m not sure what else to say about Magic and programming. I’ve written more than 90,000 words and have spent countless hours programming.
One of the reasons that I’ve lost my mojo is because recently I haven’t been programming very much. Yes, I’ve talked a lot about Forge version 2 and all that jazz but actually doing it is a different story. Eventually I’ll probably get an itch to work on Forge again and hopefully version 2 will be done someday but not anytime soon. (I’m not sure even a million dollars would inspire me but again it wouldn’t hurt either, ha.)
For the last 6 months or so Forge has been updated by numerous brave volunteers that have collaborated through the forums. (Thanks Huggybaby) I can’t thank those guys enough for volunteering their time and knowledge. I try to always give credit where credit is due and DennisBergkamp, Rob Cashwalker, Chris H. and others have done a great job.
And finally, I consider Forge to be a huge success. It has more than 2,600 cards and a decent AI. If I want to play Magic at 2am in the morning, I can. Forge also has an insane variety of cards that you would never be able to afford in real life.
I feel like I’m saying good-bye but I’m not. I’m just going to spend a little less time focusing (writing and programming) on Magic for awhile.
So for now I’m going to limit myself to only one post on Mondays :+)
If you type in “Magic computer programming” into Google, my blog is the first webpage returned, yeah.
