Sorry about the not-so-much-blogging lately. I've been preoccupied with other things (less important, of course).
Anyhow, tada! I bring you yet another update on my DN3DS-project. But more than the embedded screenshot (sorry about the size) I also bring you something new. Something at least I haven't seen anyone else do with a hobby project.
Everytime I've worked on the level, whether it's an hour or three, I write a small post about it. You could say it's something like a journal. But what's interesting (I hope) is that I also try to quantify the amount of fun I've had while working on it at the same time as I try and stay objective and say how productive I was during the time. That it, of course, in relation to the time spent. So 10 minutes can be just as productive as 5 hours.
In the end, when the project is done (if ever) (parentheses for teh win!) I will eventually be able to see the relation, or lack thereoff, between having fun while you work and being productive.
Are you more productive while having fun? Am I having more fun while being productive? Or maybe, none of the above!
You can follow my journal and chart on:

Please, let me know what you think of this idea!
Btw, I'll call this the "Prodemo Chart". (Just made it up while writing this. Production/Emotion Chart.) Remember, you heard it here first!
Oh right, the pic.
Tomorrow I'll Fraps a vid when running around in it and post or YouTube (or some equivalent). Hope you'll look forward to it.
Like the kids say; peace out!
