This isn't as much of a painful goodbye,
As I've said all of that once before.
But it still is a shame to be saying farewell.
I just wish we had time for some more.
My laptop's getting slower.
I'm really not sure why.
If I have to buy another one,
My bank account will cry.
Sitting and waiting for all of the things,
As they're updating all of their files.
I back up my laptop, the iPhone and iPad,
With iTunes and all of it's trials.
The server went down.
I stayed up and waited.
The fix took all night.
And now I'm deflated.
The end of the year is closing fast.
I've still got so much left to code.
The framework is so very far from complete.
And the iOS one still won't load.
Struggling to write,
All the things that I need.
Coding a framework,
Is a hard task indeed.
Scrapping the bad bits.
A redo from start.
Hoping this time,
I can manage this part.
Trying to choose the best way to go.
Whichever I pick, there's a flaw.
I have to decide so that I can move on.
I feel like I've been here before.
I'm making a list.
And I'm checking it twice.
I've still got lots of things to code,
To make the framework nice.
The journey continues.
The challenge goes on.
Fight with the code,
Until all bugs are gone.
Something isn't right.
A curious dilemma.
My internet code is broken.
Some sort of error.
Booting up the Mini Mac,
To try to run my game.
I'm going to have to tweak a bit,
Before it runs again.
My controllers aren't working in Linux.
There's something awry in my code.
Or maybe it's just in the VirtualBox,
Upon which the Ubuntu doth load.
My mouse co-ords have all messed up,
Since adding overscan.
I'll have to fix them up again,
The best way that I can.
Getting sidetracked by a minor thing,
Which takes up all your time.
Hours you spend, to make it right.
Until it turns out fine.
Jumping back and forth between,
A String and Char Array.
Enough to make you want to throw,
The whole damn thing away.
As I try to keep up,
My timings are off.
Two days without coding
Are curiously tough.
My internet is odd, today.
I think that there's a fault.
It's rather intermittent,
First it's fast, then at a halt.
Today's a day for DIY.
A wardrobe must be made.
Inside the box, a bag of bits.
But screws have been mislaid.
