Time Travel

I've found I'm getting good at time travel. The problem is it's only in the forward direction and it seems to be going faster and faster. Ever since I quit my day job and started working on my own, time is just flying by.

I find I'm spending almost all my free time working on programming. It's very enjoyable, but I can't figure out where all the time is going. I'll sit down to tinker on an idea for a few minutes and the next thing I know it's dark out and I forgot to eat the previous two meals. I'm tempted to set up a video camera to figure out whether maybe I'm just blacking out for hours at a time.

But, at least I do have something to show for it. My base of iPhone code is building up and things are getting easier and easier to do now that I've become more familiar with the Apple Cocoa / Objective C development environment. Hopefully soon I'll have some more announcements about applications showing up in the iTunes App store.

In the mean time, I've found this blog has really been suffering for any significant content. No introspection, no interesting pictures, not much of anything. Sorry. If it's any consolation, I haven't even found any free time to play video games. And if you know me well, that's gotta sound hard to believe. I guess my obsession for problem solving and programming trumps video game playing - at least at the moment.

Hmmm... maybe I should write a video game program for the iPhone... (and join the thousands of other developers who are doing it; there are already over 1300 games in the iTunes App store. Woah!)
