'We code mostly at night.....' - and on the odd occasion 15 mins after we've got up, fed the pets, released my computer from behind the couch (christ I need a man cave)  >:( - and still before 0700.

Thanks Qube for this forum and for getting my coding mojo released once more  ^-^
happy coding ;)

Released my computer from behind the couch
  :)) :))

Mine is nesting next to the monitor, Yoshi on top (on guard), surrounded by a lobster, 2 crabs and an octopus who doesn't respect personal space... Not forgetting a small hamster with a therapy bear!

Man Cave, you say? The trick is to convince the missus that the spare room isn't needed for guests and should be an allocated "MAN" zone. She will then promptly get a small desk, claim one of your computers and insist on her own spot in it. But hopefully won't actually insist on using it too much so you get some peace and quiet.

Oh, and you get the attached photo.

@Xerra, I'm jealous, no spare rooms at my Gaff. Here's my ergonomic workspace, every expense spared, obviously  :))

Cheers Craigd, happy coding !

On my production, I'm up to double figures of 'rooms' in my adventure... should be able to churn them out a bit quicker now hopefully!
happy coding ;)

Heheh, this is improvisation at its finest. Where there's a will there's a way...

... and a greedy solicitor getting in on the act :)

After a brief spell at Adrenaline Alley,  somewhat invigorated, done some recycling, got me a twin axle Mobile! Man cave , with tunes. It's a WIP, but beats the crap outs being behind the couch!
happy coding ;)

I've now got room to release my Amiga1200 from the loft, will she go or will she know, my Big Dark Adventure is releasing my Amiga back into my new (sorry, I can't help myself) twin axle man cave! Cheers Qube  ^-^

And Yup, I'm happily slap head esque, no more time wasted teasing a quiff into shape.... ;)

[Edit] hmmmm, major fail just trying to decrement life force .... Right noggin scrambler. For now, that's on the back burner.
happy coding ;)

She lives, man cave complete. Slightly acrid smell from the PSU that did drive to he external CD ROM, but the old 1200 still flies!

[Edit] Mobile man cave limitations, I was getting sea sick with the bloody wind, needed Wd40 to get one of the feet down, the other one is well rusted in situ.


And now, back to my big dark adventure..

Synching rooms with text and squirting in some animation, I know, this requirement s creeps not helping get it finished! Animation is in, woo hoo, back to scripting for a bit. Not Korn or bash, thank Christ!
happy coding ;)
