Well...
I am sad that it has come to this in the community...

I am announcing the start of my 7drl, (and the _ONLY_ entry this year :
() at 10:45pm March 6th, 2011.


I am upset at everybody! You all should have at least pretended to
enter the 7drl competition.
Geez.


Well, please make the award out to Del Murgatroid, since, apparently,
I win by default. I will post my hello world winning entry within the
next 10 minutes, and take the next 7 days off.

My hello world program will be titled Muert: The Condemnation of Sarah
Marie Ballard

Not sure if you're joking or if your newsreader isn't showing you new
posts for some reason, but there's a veritable flood of entries --
we've all been responding to Darren Grey's "7DRL Announcement Thread".

Yes, basically.

As an update on my status, I have been working for the past two days
(mon - tue) and have managed to create a hallway generator. I am proud
of my accomplishments. It can have multiple bends, variable width, and
configurable lengths. Unfortunately, at the moment, the hallway exists
in a building-generating map, so I can not even have an @ walk down
the hall.

Maybe I should scrap it and start over again, and this time write my
hallway generator with doors and windows in mind. I guess I forgot
about those. Or maybe I should go to the beach and "plan things out"
some more. I wrote DOORS in big letters at the top of my yellow pad
and underlined it a lot.

Out of curiosity, mind explaining a little more? What does the
"building-generating map" impose on you? Why can't you put doors? And
why can't you walk down the hall, even if it is blank and featureless?

:) We've all been there... at least the stuff that's the same should go
more smoothly the second time around. I started later than hoped
yesterday because my whole afternoon was spent recovering from XEmacs
backup files and retyping a day's worth of code on a client project
that I had coded then wiped by switching branches without checking.

My whole approach in broadcasting has always been "You are an
important person just the way you are. You can make healthy
decisions." ... I just feel that anything that allows a person to
be more active in the control of his or her life, in a healthy way,
is important.
