The New Year

2009 is here. The weather in Indiana is just as depressing as it usually is this time of year: gray skies, brown trees, too cold to enjoy very many non-snowy outdoor activities, not consistently cold enough to keep some snow around. Spring can’t get here fast enough.

Weather aside, though, 2009 is gearing up to be a good one. My sister is planning her wedding, and we’re all pretty psyched about that…looking forward to having a new bro! Our nephew is turning 1 next month. He’s very close to walking and talking, and I can’t wait to talk to that happy little guy and find out what he thinks about all of us and this world. We’re enjoying our work-from-home lifestyle and are hoping that the economy will bounce back and allow us to continue it.

It wouldn’t be a new year without a couple of resolutions. This year I have 2, and they’re both software-related. In fact, they’re both iPhone-related:

1. Release something for the iPhone on the App Store.
2. Start working on a game development engine for the iPhone. I’m just not altogether pleased with the current low cost and open source offerings, which are all ports of existing game engines from other platforms. I think an engine that is written from the ground up in Objective C for the iPhone would be a lot more fun to use.

Here’s to 2009!
