I have secured myself a Nintendo DS development kit from NeoFlash.com. Hopefully I can port my Educational Software for GameBoy Advance project onto it. I'll post some pictures when it arrives. In preparation I have been brushing up on my GBA coding skills and have started using VisualHAM which helps make things easier. I am, however, trying to stay away from the libraries since they may be too GBA specific to work on the DS.
Also arriving this week should be my copy of Prima's new book Half-Life 2: Mod Maker's Guide which I am looking forward to diving into.
I have also volunteered as a web developer for the IGDA (International Game Developers Association) which should, among other things, allow me entry to the IGDA VIP Luncheon at GDC next year! I found out it will be in San Jose next year, as it usually is, after their trial of San Francisco this year. That should hopefully make it a more intimate affair allowing me to chat to a few more people here and there.
All this and I am starting a new night-shift month of classes, DirectX and Advanced Tools Programming. So much to do and so little time to cram it all in!
