David the reboot

The past few weeks have been turmoil for me. I don’t want to get into every detail, but in a relatively short period of time my girlfriend and I broke up, I moved to another city and took up residence at my sister’s house. As you can imagine, I have been busy moving this and that, closing some accounts remotely, and stuff you have to do when you move.

Ending a relationship that lasted several years is very traumatic to everyone involved. Moving to another city is as well. Not to mention the fact that I miss our dog terribly. Here I am in my mid-40s and I am suddenly reinventing myself.

I don’t know if any of my siblings or other family will read this, but everyone has been great. People have put me up, helped me find a place to live, hit the garage sales for dishes. I wish I could thank each and every person who has help me get, well, rebooted.

That’s what this is, you know. A reboot. David version 2.0. As a reboot (maybe Christian Bale will play me in the movie) it gives me an opportunity to reinvent myself. What should I do? What kinds of friends should I hang out with? I could, perhaps, blog about my reboot on these pages. But I’m sort of a private person, and I am not sure I am that narcissistic. I’ll think about it.

Invasion of the Second-Hand Shirts

Amazingly enough, I discovered today that I apparently rewrote Invasion of the Second-Hand Shirts in Inform 7 in 2006 and completely forgot about it.

Since I apparently wrote it in 2006, I don’t have the original game files. So I was lucky to find it archived on Richard Otter’s web site. Anyway, I posted it on my page, and you can play it in all its glory without downloading any special software.

Anyway, thanks Richard!
