Site Update – 8/1/17

Why things have been so slow around Nyteworks the past month.

With the exception of The Mega Man Network, things have been pretty slow around Nyteworks for the past month. Heck, I didn’t even post anything for this very site’s anniversary back on July 2nd, and I’m not sure if anyone cares (well, I know at least one person might, so that’s good enough), but I’m saying something anyhow.

July has been a real roller coaster of a month, as it kicked off with me doing something to one of my ribs when trying to fix something behind my television centre. This occupied a good chunk of the first half of the month with me visiting hospitals and doctors and trying different medicines to at least make the pain manageable (there was success eventually). Nothing appears to be broken, at least going by the x-rays, but it sure as hell felt like something broke at the time. Imagine laying on your front is like being a table, and your rib cage makes up the legs. Now imagine if one of those legs broke. That was not just the feeling, but the very sensation I felt as it seemed like I had one less “leg” supporting me.

Anyway, things are better now, thanks to some anti-inflamatories prescribed that allowed the Tylenol to do its job properly. Stuff still hurts, but at this point, it’s just one more thing on the laundry list of aches and pains I’ve got going on, so I can manage.

The second half of the month has been a thing that happened, too. A bit more roller-coastery, I guess: Nadia’s grandmother died, then it was her birthday (feel free to drop her a line with belated wishes; it’s okay, I said you could), then she had to go to the hospital — for a procedure, though, so she’s okay.

Follow that up with my having to turn my attention towards my paying work — Nintendo Force and Mega Visions, which is still ongoing — plus getting my costume ready for Otakon in a couple of weeks, and you can see where my lack of time has come from.

In my spare time, though, I have been playing some games that have been in my review backlog, so I do hope to have some fresh content up here sooner than later, plus I’ve had a few ideas for some posts over on PoisonMushroom.Org, so hopefully I’ll have some stuff going on here or there sooner or later (probably there sooner, and here later).

And that’s pretty much that. In the meantime, you can also keep up with me on Twitter, where I’ll also be sharing upcoming stuff as it happens.
