Back On The Horse

Felt like writing again, simply because I haven’t in a while.

The title applies to yesterday (and hopefully today too).  I had to stay late for some errors at work, and it ended up raining all over my bike, and it was still raining throughout the ride back.  It’s the first time since the crash that I rode in the rain, and it was just as terrifying as I thought it would be.  There was a lot of hazard light usage, pulling over so people could pass, and 10 mile-per-hour turns.  I made it though, and while the experience was awful, a part of me is happy.  I’ve secretly wanted to get caught in the rain so I could try getting over riding in the rain.  40 minutes of glacially slow, very upright riding and I’m not quite over it, but at least I know I can do it.

At one point I could have sworn I was drifting sideways on a particularly wet turn.  It was really hard to see, too.  I had to keep the visor up because it seems to fog up when it’s wet outside, so my glasses were constantly dripping.  It could have been a really bad day, but all things considered, it was fine.

The other part is my continuing on my latest STG project.  I fixed bullet data to use a Dictionary<string,object> instead of it being a single string.

Today I wanted to do a pattern resembling a spell of Tewi’s.

Need to try out making bullets that rotate, with the rotation based on a sinusoidal function of the bullet’s total time alive.
