Still with the keeping on  
I'm still home by myself. I'm still at the decreasingly-new job. I'm doing a perfectly tolerable job of cleaning and feeding myself and so on. It's odd re-adjusting to one-guy-size shopping, cooking, etc.

It's hot lately. Fair enough, it's nearly July.

That game Kickstarter I backed hasn't quiiiite made it to "funded", though it'll happen tomorrow or the next day I expect. The same studio did a really neat game called "Contrast" about jumping through shadows to get at things you want. The one I backed is about a bizarre retro-future 1960s, being forced to conform and, in some sense, quiet alienation from everything around you. Have I mentioned how happy I am that it's cheaper to make games these days and we're seeing some different ones? I really am.

If you didn't see or listen to President Obama's eulogy for Rev. Pinckney, go do that. This is the full-throated defense of Black America that we've been waiting for from Obama. I'm glad he made it here.

I'm on day three of a four-to-eight-day caffeine break. I need them now and again to keep caffeine effective. I'm dragging, but not as much as I expected.

Some Ruby authors, me included, are getting together for a summer bundle sale -- everybody's stuff at half-or-so off, etc. We'll see how it turns out. I'm glad somebody wanted to organize it -- yay for getting to participate :-)

I have days when I feel very energetic. I have days when lots gets done. It's interesting how often they're not the same days.

Okay, that's me for now. Talk at you later.

Thanks for updates.

Yes - the eulogy was worth the time. :)

I had a caffeine headache yesterday and wondered if it was time for me to take a break.

I'm told that if you cut out caffeine completely, you can wash it out of your system in four days. A bit of cheating (e.g. tea) allows you to do it in more like eight days to reset your tolerance.

With that said, physical tolerance isn't the whole story. A number of other things (expectation, sleep habits, various kinds of psychosomatic stimulation or depression) can take a lot longer to reset.

I used to take one-month breaks a few years ago, and they *did* work better. They just also take a full month :-)
