News and fun things about the games we play

Not much to report this week. The Discord server grew a few more channels, mostly to discuss new game systems and gaming utilities; I did manage to get at least a few lines of code written, but my paid job is still sucking up most of my energy, so this is slow going. On the other hand, some progress is better than none.

Finally had the cycles again to work on the new codebase. Taking a break, while ${WORK} was a pain, did help me become clearer on some more unexplained bits on how to implement an OpenID identity provider, so that’s good. Next, actually write the code that gives life to the flowchart I built this weekend.

Still too much going on at the paid job to devote time to the new codebase. I was made aware of a few bugs with the scenario system, and they are on my list to be fixed. Once live, this should resolve being unable to link images, and make it a little harder for the web form to eat data when inputs are missing.

Somewhat belated, because I took yesterday off to do nothing whatsoever that involved a rectangular display and a keyboard. Code is still stalled while I work through soul-sucking ${WORK}. I did manage to get the Oracle newsfeed integrated into Discord – I think – and Thorne assembled a few custom emojis over there.

Not really much to say here – I’ve been spending my weekends sick and with way too much paid ${WORK} to even think of working on the Portal. I’m hoping this will improve soon. For now, though, I really don’t have anything new to report here.

Sylverthorne did make a few updates, mostly to the front page in the form of new buttons to link to the FAQ, our contact form and a few other places; the Portal’s (still temporary…) Discord server has added a dice roller bot, and rooms for a few games. The site is not dead.

No real progress on the new code. ${WORK} is killing me. Rondak’s Portal has acquired a Discord server; this should be considered temporary for now – while voice chat is on my feature list for the new codebase, I have not yet decided whether to integrate Discord or opt for another system.

Not much to report, was mostly pulled away to deal with paid ${WORK} this week. Still, I got a little bit of work on the new Portal code done, and squashed a few more bugs in the existing code. Progress. Slow, but progress.

Making progress on the new codebase, slowly but surely. I settled on a backend interface to actually run the Portal codebase, and got a toy application running on the framework to see how parameters are passed and what I need to do to make the code work. Now in the process of getting it all integrated for that pre-alpha site I mentioned I wanted to have up in August.

Some more progress with the new codebase. Got most of the HTTP protocol handling dealt with, I need to extend the POST message body parser to also handle JSON objects. That should make writing the actual server code that much easier, since I won’t have to figure out how to send all my headers by hand for every page.

Site News

Not much new to report this week, I spent most of it working on things that actually pay the bills. That having been said, I had some time to at least think about Portal development, and talk to Sylverthorne about getting started on mocking up the actual login flow – as the supporting code for that is going to be complete soon and I will then start building that (very low-functionality) demonstration / proof-of-concept site that I set myself a Summer 2018 deadline for.
