Director  

The Surge

It's been a very quiet month here at darrelplant.com. I know. I haven't really had a lot to say on politics except in reaction to things, and I usually leave those in comments at other sites and blogs. I fire up Twitter only every couple of days, mostly just to see what other people are up to, although I did have a brief exchange with iPhone author @jeff_lamarche the other day about 1970s editions of Dungeons & Dragons boxed sets. And I've been checking in on Facebook to keep in touch with Director-Xtra-developer-turned-poker-pro Tomer Berda as he's been playing in the European Poker Tour events in Estonia and Portugal this month.

But the main reason the blog's been so quiet is that all of a sudden I have a handful of projects. Not just any projects but Director projects. And just to crank the bizarre to 11, they're Director 8.5 projects. Technically, I guess that would be cranking the bizarre back from 11 (or 11.5). I've even had to buy a couple of Xtras (from Tomer, natch) for the first time in seven years.

I'm not chalking this up to some resurgence in Director, but the work is certainly welcome after several years of drought.
