Well, you’d think that being isolated from the many distractions the Internet has to offer would make me more productive, right? Not a chance. Source control access over dial-up is excruciating, and I very much live by the policy of many small commits rather than few big ones. So when Eclipse managed to get my broadband back to me on Tuesday (a whole week ahead of their worst-case installation date), I breathed a big sigh of relief. And downloaded about 3.5GB of stuff in the first 24 hours!

Anyway, I’ve learned my lesson, and the phone line for the new office is being installed in advance of us going in, and I won’t be shifting operations there until we have net access up and stable. Oh, and yes – new office! Admittedly it’s just a room, but it’s proper office space, with room for 3 or 4 of us, central Edinburgh, nice street. Pictures and more details will come closer to the time, but suffice to say I’m quite excited. This will give us the chance to hire additional people (not just those I can trust to work from home), and aside from anything else should satisfy Nintendo’s strict policy for developer status. Add to that the fact that Nintendo development kits are really quite cheap, and we’ll be seriously considering getting one or two to work on our own stuff in addition to any work for hire jobs we take on.
