Well, it’s been a while since I’ve posted on here. Basically that job I had in spring finished before the fall and I’ve been looking for more work since then. Also during that time I was also trying to go back to university to eventually get my degree.
As I’m sure you can guess, what you plan and what inevitably happens is never one and the same. So basically I ended up contracting mononucleosis(also known as mono, the kissing disease, etc.) in August. I still don’t know how or where I got it from, but that’s pretty irrelevant. I also ended up resigning from DeSmuME(some of which was related to my illness, but not all).
So for about a month I suffered trying to get back to feeling normal again, and I did to some degree. I managed to get a whole lot more physical activity in, and yabause provided the mental stimulation I needed. Then about a month and a half ago, I ended up hiting some kind of physical relapse or something. I just had no energy. I’d wake up after sleeping for like 8 hours or so, be horribly groggy for 2-3 hours, then I’d be awake for about 2 hours and all the sudden I’d feel horribly tired again. Of course I tried fighting it and go to sleep earlier or whatever. But that didn’t seem to work well either.
So anyways, that’s where I’m at now. I’ll be seeing my doctor hopefully sometime during the next week or so(of course, it would help if I could actually make an appointment over the phone). And then we’ll see how it goes.
As far as Yabause goes, I’ve been working on various things here and there. Most of it went into the last release(v0.9.1), but there’s a few things I haven’t included or finished yet. The problem usually ends up being that some of the features Yabause’s needs are at times a project in itself, so I end up getting like half it done, and then I end putting it down because I’m tired of working on it.
Oh yeah, I picked up a Saturn USB datalink. Not too shabby actually. I’ll probably end up using it as a replacement for my commlink, but before I can do that I’m going to need a software replacement. It’s not that the software sucks, but seriously, I need more than -just- a utility that dumps the bios, exchanges saves, and allows you to upload a binary to 0×06004000.
