Blogger Down, Monkey Mapper Updated

Blogger crapped out at exactly the right time. My wife has been working hard on her masters thesis and the break from blogging has given me plenty of time to wrangle the kids and help proof-read her paper. Work has been crazy as well and it turns out that I needed a few days without distraction to hit some key deadlines.

But I did manage to make progress on my check-list of boring stuff that needed to get done. First on the list was an update of the Monkey Mapper. I had stopped adding new tiles around Geomorph #105, mostly because Dave's Mapper did everything so much better. But the Monkey Mapper still has its uses (its the fastest way to get a quick dungeon of only my geomorphs), so I wanted to make sure it had my latest dungeon geomorphs.

Anyway, we have graduation activities all weekend so posting will continue to be light. But I have a bunch of cool content in the works (including more Otusworld posts, the completing of Risus Falkenstein, and some new PocketMods).

I enjoyed the break and after goofing off the last two days being off work, I was able to get my kitchen done today. So, I'm okay with it. Not like I post anything all that important. Only thing I lost was a quiz and since I remembered what I wrote, I rewrote it.

Good to hear you helped your wife. Please send her my good wishes.

Cheers!

Shouldn't you be doing that anyway?

@Whisk: Thanks! We're so thrilled that she's finally done.

@ Nero: Yeah, I I I would have done it anyway. But it was a whole lot easier without trying to squeeze in my normal blogging stuff on the side. I definitely got more sleep as a result. :)

I forgot to ask, what is she shooting for?

@Nero: She graduated from the George Washington University with a Masters in International Education. Now she begins the process of seeing what kind of career this opens up for her (likely candidates include university administration, an NGO, or a State Department job).
