|Most of today was spent idling like yesterday. A little of this, a little of that.
Things started off with an unexpected twist. In my emails this afternoon was an invite to a closed beta of the upcoming Filly online game. Naturally a good chunk of the afternoon was spent playing around with it. While I didn't see a NDA, I'm still going to wait until it becomes an open beta or launches before saying more just to be safe. If you haven't been following the scuttlebutt in the My Little Pony world lately, a testing build of the biggest game being developed was leaked by someone on the Quality Assurance team the other day, totally pissing off a lot of people and badly hurt the project. So NDA violations are kinda on the mind right now.
I spent some time working on The Notebook as planned, but only made two pages, both of which should probably be revised later. I also played around with Background Service and found that it would probably be best to revise the models to be about 150% of their current size. That will take a little bit of time, but it shouldn't take a month.
The link for the day is a fan made My Little Pony music video that goes well with its competitor's new game: Picture Perfect Pony.
