I spent a lot of time this August working on Android stuff. I revived Condado and started working on it some more, instead of my Monopoly Deal port (which is quite a ways off). I fixed some long standing bugs reported by the community and updated some of the infrastructure to use more current APIs. The point of which is to produce a version that can be played on tablets properly without having to duplicate or rewrite the entire UI. It’s a bit of work, worthy of a major version bump, and I’m still not done; but I’ve been putting an hour in every day or two to move it along.
We saw some respite from the hot weather in August, with a week of downright cold teens and low 20 temperatures. Then the heat came roaring back at the end of August. The days have also become shorter, so hopefully the cool temperatures are not that far off.
We finished our Korean course this month as well. We had to do a group presentation/skit which we put together as a video, and then took the final exam. That was pretty easy and I ended up with an A+! But, it honestly wasn’t very difficult to get a very good grade (and yet there were people supremely worried about passing).
This month has been a boring month for hockey. My hockey Twitter feed has been dull and full of non-hockey related news. Free agent signings have been rare, with only several contract extensions. The majority of this is a reaction to the impending CBA nightmare, where it looks like players will be locked out next month.
The other big event in the news was the impending contract situation between the Ontario government and the teachers. But it looks like that will extend into the school year before a resolution is found.
